Today begins a shift for the better. Since it’s Friday, perhaps this is cause to celebrate a little? The month ahead is a wonderful time to buy wardrobe items. You feel confident, attractive and socially smooth.
If today is your birthday: You’ll make a discovery in the next few months that dramatically alters your outlook on life. Your year ahead will be spent exploring much broader, brighter horizons than you currently expect to be seeing. (!)
The New Moon in your Solar Return chart suggests that you will instinctively begin a new phase of your life this year. A decisively new direction has come about in your life. This can be an emotionally stimulating time in which you feel the urge to initiate and project, even if you are not quite clear about what you are projecting.
Much of the energy in your life can have a magical quality to it as things are just automatically going in a certain direction. It is important to be intuitive at this time and allow the natural course to show you the way to the next step. Surprises (mostly very pleasant) pepper your year. New beginnings are in order, and you are bound to feel some level of excitement as the year unfolds.
