THE MOON IN VIRGO
The Moon indicates that this is the year in which you take charge of your own life. You need to get practical about personal matters, tackle responsibilities and take control. This may involve some re-organisation, sacrifice of immediate emotional needs, and hard work. It is a busy year during which you can achieve much if you manage your life, use common sense, plan your schedule and keep your nose to the grindstone. You can make decisions and make plans based on sound analysis of a situation rather than emotion. You are practical, methodical, self-disciplined and ready to exchange bad habits. You need to eat more healthily and improve your diet. If you don’t then you visit the doctor or health professionals more often than you would like.
THE MOON IN THE 4TH HOUSE
It is time to look at the emotional needs of yourself and your family, and your feelings regarding home. Loved ones may seem irrational. So may your own feelings on home and family, but you need to face them, for if you suppress them they may erupt in strange ways. Where is home? Who is your family? Where do you belong? What do you need to feel safe and secure in your home? Reflect on the feelings that are surfacing, and take considered action. Changes may need to be made in your home, someone new may become part of your household. Reach out to your loved ones, heal past hurts, and create channels of communication that are warm and loving.

THE SUN IN ARIES
Your Sun is in the zodiac sign of Aries indicating that you’re an assertive and freedom-loving individual, with a strong need for independence. Others may call you headstrong, but you simply believe that everyone has a right to assert themselves in any situation. Life presents many challenges which you enjoy meeting head-on regardless of the obstacles along the way. You’re a natural-born leader. The ability to focus on one’s own goals to the exclusion of others is a healthy trait, but like all things, a balance is needed, and you must make sure that you take the time to include others’ points of views and modus operandi. On the whole though you handle yourself with aplomb as, astrologically speaking, the Sun is exalted in Aries emphasizing the strengths rather than the weaknesses.
THE SUN IN THE 11TH HOUSE
Your hopes, dreams , nd wishes are the major themes this year. Previously you may have put your personal dreams on hold while you shouldered responsibilities, and put other people’s needs and wishes first, but it’s time to pursue your own dreams. You are looking for ways and means to improve the quality of your life. Most likely you will put professional ambitions on hold while you focus on an enjoyable hobby, a passionate belief, or a new lifestyle. You may join group or club, spend time with friends or seek a change of scenery. Opportunities for change are likely to come about through friends, colleagues and acquaintances. You may renew acquaintances with old friends. It is important that you reach out to other people and enjoy life.

CONJUNCTION MERCURY Orb 6°36′ Applying
“Change” is the key word this year. You may be restless, eager to change your life, or fretful, concerned about impending differences. You receive news of changes, or perhaps take action yourself after weighing the pros and cons. You may also talk to friends, family and colleagues about how you would like to do things different and decisions that you need to make. Go with the flow, taking action when you can and garnering as much support as possible. Young people may be of help, and any care taking role is likely to help you understand yourself and your own situation better and once again may instigate a change of heart or mind. You are likely to gain many insights this year, and alter your opinions and beliefs.
SQUARE MARS Orb 1°50′ Separating
You are all set for an adventure, but first consider other factors or people. Even if you are not a risk-taker you have the courage to feel the fear and do it anyway. A male mentor or partner may help or inspire you to move closer to achieving your dreams. You are enterprising, able to initiate change. But you may not realize how selfish and pushy you are being. Be wary of being too rash…daring but not foolhardy. Avoid conflict where possible. Act with integrity not aggression. If you feel pent-up and aggressive, physical exercise is beneficial, and sports may be a prominent theme. You may also enjoy trips to out-of-the-way places. You are ripe for adventure, make the most of the opportunities and enjoy the ride.
SQUARE SATURN Orb 0°36′ Applying
This is your year to develop hard work, stick-to-itiveness and common sense, although you may have to struggle through a few obstacles. Patience is required as you ystematically work to achieve your ambitions. Your recreation time is likely to be sparse, so use it wisely. Apply yourself with diligence in any area that provides structure or new skills, or gradually build up new avenues when the old ones cease to work. You may be required to tighten the purse strings, work within a budget, or direct your funds to renovating your home or restructuring your business. Pay attention to the structures that uphold your life whether these are the buildings, your finances, partnerships or investments. Right now you are working hard as an investment in your future happiness.
MERCURY IN ARIES
The planet of communications in a fire sign this year indicates you are open to new ideas and activities. You enjoy expressing yourself freely and are quick to voice your opinions, but be careful not to be too outspoken or your popularity may wane. If you judge the mood of your listeners you are likely to inspire a positive response. You also need to learn not to take on too many projects, prioritise what matters most, or you could become overloaded and tense. If you attempt too much you are doomed to disappoint yourself and associates. You may start a new intellectual activity, such as public speaking, writing, marketing and public relations, or performing, and may also enjoy learning a new skill, or developing your talents.
MERCURY IN THE 11TH HOUSE
This is a busy social year, perhaps because you are pursuing a particular hobby, project or cause. Networking plays a key role. You objectively reassess social commitments, group interests, and causes. If you have been laid back, perhaps just wasting time (watching television, perhaps), boredom may set in. Your lesson: find a hobby or cause to which you can commit. You may join a club, start classes, or try a new past-time. If you are already active your commitments may change. You enjoy being part of a group or team. Perhaps work now requires you to become a team member, or your role in a group changes. The changes you experience may bring about changes in friendships. Your lesson is to remain adaptable as the cards are reshuffled.

VENUS IN ARIES
The planet of love is in a Fire sign this year indicating that you are more adventurous in love and money matters. Generally speaking you are more willing to take risks when it comes to love and money. Even if you usually enjoy security, you are prepared to venture out of your comfort zone a little. If you are single and looking for a lover, then you are likely to be attracted to outgoing, artistic or adventurous types. If you are attached, then you or your partner is likely to initiate changes. You are ready. Look at other aspects of your annual chart for more details on your personal life.
VENUS IN THE 12TH HOUSE
Love, faith and hope are themes for you this year because you are more focused on spiritual values than material ones. The material world doesn’t seem to hold much attraction right now. Perhaps you have discovered a passion for helping others, a spiritual practice or a retreat in nature. Or maybe you have lost someone dear through death, or one of you travelled far away. The loss may trigger pain and grief, but may also deepen your understanding of the deeper and unknown aspects of your world. Assess your own values, act on them and gently assert your opinions and beliefs. Avoid becoming embroiled in a friend’s ongoing problems. You enjoy stepping into the unknown and may wish to share your experience with others.

It is time to dig deep and find the courage to make the changes you know have been needed for a long time. You are clearing and pruning, and spending many hours regenerating underneath. It’s time to find the resources, the courage and fortitude to face some of your own life challenges. You may be grieving the loss of someone near and dear, or perhaps just the loss of dreams of how things could have been. Your gut instinct is strong, and you are willing to use it to improve the quality of life for you and those closest to your heart. Hope can be a strong motivating force in your life this year. Prayer, meditation, consulting spiritual advisors, and support groups may all help.

Relationships are beneficial this year, helping you to expand your monetary and spiritual resources. If you are single, this year you can attract and perhaps marry a partner who is rich in the earthly or spiritual sense, or both. Single or married you’re likely to be happy and benefit through your primary partnership. It’s not just
your relationship to your spouse but also any partnerships which require a legal agreement. You’re likely to succeed in any project dealing with other people, and you prefer to work with others rather than on your own. Other people appreciate your ability to work happily and co-operatively in business and personal projects, so you are likely to be successful in achieving your goals in partnership with other people.

SATURN IN CAPRICORN
SATURN IN THE 8TH HOUSE
Money and sex are likely to be key factors this year. Analyse your income and expenditure, particularly shared finances. Household budgets, family investments, joint income, business ventures and inheritances need scrutinized. Go through your bills and paperwork and put your books in order. Seek advice on consolidating your debts. If you haven’t paid your tax, then do so now or legal action is likely. If you have been financially diligent you may be rewarded, and need to consider what to do with your hard-earned money. On a personal level you are ready to face the truths within any of your intimate relationships. If you are satisfied you may pool resources, but if dissatisfied then you are likely to change, and perhaps dissolve a personal or business partnership.
9TH DEGREE OF CAPRICORN
Part of Body: Nerves of knee
Sabian Symbol: An angel carrying a harp.
URANUS IN ARIES
URANUS IN THE 12TH HOUSE
This is a year of personal discovery, and symbolism plays an important role in your life. Everything may appear to be as usual, but a deeply personal transition is happening as you explore your inner world. This is an excellent year for conducting soul searching, digging deep for solutions to outstanding problems, and enjoying challenges that result from your new realisations. You may consult metaphysical practitioners to gain understanding. You may surprise others, and yourself, by instigating some sudden changes. These could appear to be bolts from the blue, but you know that you have been dwelling on these changes for some time. If you have been asking for a miracle in some area, an unexpected breakthrough may occur that does appear to be a miracle.
28TH DEGREE OF ARIES
Part of Body: Fornix/parietal and occipital bones
Sabian Symbol: A large disappointed audience.
NEPTUNE IN PISCES
NEPTUNE IN THE 10TH HOUSE
This year look beyond the mundane and ask if there is more to life than your current work. You seek meaning in life, particularly in your public life. Does your current job reflect your true passion? If so your work may change in subtle ways. You may take a break, slow down, recharge your batteries. If unsure about your work, vaguely dissatisfied, weary, perhaps you are resisting needed changes. You may decide to change your job or career, or start a course of study. If you are single you may come to terms with your single status. If married, perhaps your partner’s career prospects are unclear, and are affecting you in your own work role, or making career decisions. Slow down and really reflect on your life direction.
15TH DEGREE OF PISCES
Part of Body: Left cutaneous veins
Sabian Symbol: An officer preparing to drill his men.
PLUTO IN CAPRICORN
PLUTO IN THE 9TH HOUSE
Pluto is urging a soul-searching, and finding renewed passion and purpose this year, and you are likely to spend time discovering, or working consciously towards, your “calling”. It’s a year of renewal, perhaps triggered by a stressful event. Pluto has an ability to strip self-deceit and force you to face truths, literally or
metaphysically. The underlying motivating force is that you are aware that something is missing from your way of life and you eagerly, perhaps even obsessively, want to get on the path to your true purpose. Doubts arise and you are challenged to search for your true faith. You may study something that inspires you, or be challenged to take a leap of faith into spiritual realms. You may read rapaciously or travel to unexplored territories.
22ND DEGREE OF CAPRICORN
Part of Body: Muscle insertions of upper to lower legs
Sabian Symbol: A general accepting defeat gracefully.
CHIRON IN PISCES
CHIRON IN THE 11TH HOUSE
Positively, you may find that one special friend opens a whole new world to you, or provides you with a roadmap to explore new places. You could be befriended by someone unlike any you have ever met before. Or you may find yourself wrapped up in a unique cause and try to rally other people to join you, or considered a friend by a group of people who are outside your normal circle of friends. Negatively, you may have to deal with the discovery that previously trusted associates cannot be relied on, or that you have done something which causes others to withhold their approval of you. Unrequited love is possible. Or you may find yourself stumbling over obstacles which interfere with seeking a cherished hope or goal.
29TH DEGREE OF PISCES
Part of Body: Toenails of right foot
Sabian Symbol: A prism.
THE NORTH NODE
THE NORTH NODE IN LEO
THE NORTH NODE IN THE 3RD HOUSE
Your journey now involves communication and communication networks. If you want to spread the word about anything now is the time to speak up. You are likely to meet people who help you voice your message verbally, written or via the internet. Your life’s journey is about to reveal ways in which you can express your true self. You can promote your own professional interests, or may speak up on behalf of others. Either way the Fates ask that you view these opportunities selflessly, not through a mindset of egotism. Walk side by side with colleagues, friends, and family members, not of forcing issues. Watch for destiny’s signposts, listen to the unspoken messages of those around you and tune into your own intuition.
14TH DEGREE OF LEO
Part of Body: Left ventricle of heart
Sabian Symbol: Cherub-like, a human soul whispers, seeking to manifest.
THE ASCENDANT IN TAURUS
Your birthday chart Ascendant this year is in Taurus, a practical sign — you are more introspective and security conscious, focusing on comforts, home and family, keen to have your house in order. You are steadier, more reliable and considerate this year. Not keen to make changes, you prefer to stay with familiar places, people and projects. You are content to build resources, letting others take the risks. You are asking questions such as, am I comfortable with my current living arrangements, transform my home or even build a new shelter? On an emotional level you may be reconsidering your notions of home and family. You are now ready to make a practical assessment of your current options and gradually implement any necessary changes.
