You are currently able to handle opportunities well by focusing your energy on constructive
activities and goals. This is a time of conscious striving--knowing what you want and working towards getting it. Your vitality
gets a little boost and your recuperative powers are better than normal. Relations with others tend to flow smoothly now.
At the root of improved relationships are your inner confidence, contentment, and balance.
Sun square Moon
This is a brief period in which emotional frustrations or setbacks are more like to occur. Relationship problems that arise
now likely have their roots in emotional unrest and some confusion between what you want to do and what you think you should
do. You are more excitable than usual, and less inclined to make rational, thought-out decisions. Whims could take hold. If
you are having problems on the domestic front, they are magnified now. Do your best not to force changes in your life. Circumstances
and others tend to be less supportive than usual, and you might find you have to push yourself harder to achieve the same
results you would on other days of the month. This is not an ideal time for new enterprises or undertakings. Inner restlessness
may take you out of your typical routine. You are more inclined to become "stressed out" now and more inclined to
catch a cold or to feel slightly under the weather. Relationships with others may be strained for the time being. This is
a good time to uncover issues of emotional unrest that have been bubbling under the surface, and to take steps to take better
care of your emotional needs.
Sun trine Moon
This is a time when you handle opportunities that come your way very well. Achievement
is smooth. Recuperative powers are increased. Positive new connections may be made now. The possibility of some form of recognition
or validation for what you do may come during this brief but effective period. Favorable trends in your domestic or professional
affairs may be noticeable. A positive frame of mind does wonders now. Familiarity and comfort are dominant motivators for
you during this period. It's a good time to mend relationship problems and to surround yourself with people.
Sun opposition Moon
You take things more personally
now, and issues that have been stewing beneath the surface reveal themselves now. This is a period when you are more inclined
to be immature or childish if you have not been managing or acknowledging your emotions in a healthy manner to date. On the
negative side, your relationships with others could be strained. You could be feeling less vigorous than usual or more stressed.
You might find that you attract challenging situations simply because you are overreacting emotionally. Managed well, this
can be a time in which you arrive at increased self-understanding of your innermost needs and wants. Others could be mirroring
parts of you that you have been denying. Do what you can to avoid making entirely emotionally-driven decisions.
Sun conjunct Sun
It's time to
celebrate as a new solar cycle begins. Pay close attention to your overall mood as well as to any insights you have now. Concentrate
on what you want from your life, and where you want your life to head. How you handle today impacts the kind of year you have
ahead of you. This is the actual date and time of your Solar Return. You may wish to do something special at this hour, such
as a meditation ritual. The steps you take today determine your path for the next year. This is the beginning of a new year
for you, and you feel charged with new energy, vitality, and sense of purpose. Make this day an excellent one, as the energies
you feel today can be somewhat of a "stamp" for the year ahead.
Sun sextile Sun
This is a good period for dealing with
others in general, but particularly on professional levels or with those in charge. Self-expression flows smoothly without
social faux-pas or hiccups. Increased vitality and self-confidence come from a sense of peace on both body and spirit levels.
Sun square Sun
You might find you
have to push a little harder during this transit than you normally would. Obstacles in your path tend to arrive now, although
you are capable of turning them into positive energy. Challenges you face now are actually quite revealing if you look at
them as learning experiences.
This is a period when ego-gratifying circumstances are highlighted. You receive some sort of boost to your
ego and confidence, perhaps through some form of recognition, however big or small. You are likely to feel energetically supported
by others and by life's circumstances. Battles of will could occur now. Don't stress or strain--pushing your agenda on others
is unlikely to do anything except cause friction.
Sun opposition Sun
This is a time of the year when you are more likely to catch a cold or to
feel under the weather, unappreciated, and generally ill at ease. Tensions with others can come from a lack of self-confidence
or a sudden awareness of unfulfilled wishes and goals. You are unlikely to feel on top of your game now, so don't push matters.
Instead, take time for rest and relaxation. Review your goals and revise them if need be.
Sun conjunct Mercury
You are especially sharp, communicative,
and open at this time, as your wants are aligned with your thoughts. You tend to think and act automatically, and you could
come across as an "open book" now, even if your nature is not especially forthright. It's a favorable time for solving
problems. For the most part, you are on the ball. Circumstances are such that you need to adapt, adjust, communicate, or travel.
Transportation and movement, in general, are issues now. Because it's easy to rationalize your behavior, it's a favorable
time to work on improving your skills. You tend to say what you think now. Keep in mind that what you say or write now has
impact, for better or for worse! As well, others could find you self-absorbed for the time being. It would be wise to take
the time to listen to what others have to say.
During this transit, you find it easier than usual to rationalize your own behavior and that of others.
It's an excellent period for improving your skills and for opening up discussions on topics that you normally might sidestep.
Dealing with details may be necessary now, but also quite easy to do. Intellectually, you are sharp and generally on the ball.
It's an excellent time for taking tests or presenting your ideas. Your opinions and thought processes are generally well-received
and appreciated now.
Circumstances are such that you need to adapt and adjust, deal with nagging details, and/or run a number
of errands. You may have a hard time concentrating on any one subject. Either you are easily distracted or a whole slew of
information and demands are thrown upon you at once. Nervous tension is a potential by-product. It may be challenging to get
in touch with what you truly want to do as you tend to live in your brain rather than your heart for the time being.
Sun trine Mercury
You can translate your thoughts
into actions readily now--decisiveness helps you to say what you think and think what you say. Improving your skills also
comes naturally and easily. Taking tests, making plans, presenting your work or ideas, and communications of all kinds are
favored. Others tend to value your opinions and ideas under the influence of this transit. It's a favorable period for business
transactions, launching a mental pursuit or communications project, or going on a short trip.
Sun opposition Mercury
This could be a time of nervous tension due
to overactive or upset schedules. As well, you could feel slighted as a result of others misunderstanding what you communicate
or get offended over a difference of opinion. You may experience anxiety or worry over mundane affairs. It's best not to schedule
tests or presentations now, as you can easily overlook important facts or find that you are easily distracted. Try to avoid
a tendency to look at matters with a negative perspective--it doesn't help! New ideas or projects initiated now may not come
to fruition. A change of mind down the road is likely. Take care in your personal and professional communications--you can
too easily misrepresent yourself with what you say or write now.
Sun conjunct Venus
This transit stimulates your love nature. This is a
good day for expressing yourself creatively through relationships or other pursuits. You want to be the center of attention
right now, and you are feeling more vulnerable to how others receive you, so you may pay special attention to your charm and
appearance or mannerisms. You might make some social contacts that benefit your career or life direction. Women could figure
prominently in your life during this period, and relationships with females are generally smooth and pleasing. "All things
Venus" are brought to your attention--romantic feelings, material wants, and pleasurable activities, to name a few. Watch
out for over-spending, as you may feel a greater than average need to please or pamper yourself. As long as it is done in
moderation, enjoy this focus on yourself and your wants!
Sun sextile Venus
Some social networking is likely to occur now. Pleasurable activities are emphasized,
and relationships with others tend to be gratifying and agreeable. It's an excellent period for negotiations and smoothing
over of differences. Although there are better transits for personal magnetism than this one, you do tend to easily attract
positive attention and circumstances now. Financial matters are generally favored.
Sun square Venus
You might be particularly irritated by others' behavior now, but consider
that problems encountered now could be a reflection of your own inner discontent. Do your best to control yearnings for more
than what you have, and search for a creative solution for your inner dissatisfaction. Disagreements that may crop up now
tend to be about differences in principles or matters of personal style.
Sun trine Venus
This is a pleasing influence for harmonious contact with others and
for prosperity in general. Expressing yourself creatively through relationships or other pleasurable pursuits is favored now.
Your personal charm is natural and well-received now, making this a good time to be amongst people.
Sun opposition Venus
Ego reactions to feeling
underappreciated are quite possible now. This is not the best time for ego stroking on social and romantic levels. You may
not appreciate how others are handling your just now. Pushing it won't solve any problems. In fact, lonely or frustrated feelings
that might arise now are likely a reflection of your own inner discontent. Getting in touch with what is making you feel down
could help you to solve problems now. This is not the best time to ask for what you want.
Sun conjunct Mars
This is one of your most courageous
and animated periods of the year. How you handle the energy at your disposal is the key to the kinds of outcomes you'll experience.
You're not going to wait for anyone now. This transit rids you of inhibitions, at least for the time being. This is a time
of much enthusiasm. Acting on things you have only entertained on a mental level is probable. With the Sun placing its spotlight
on Mars--the planet that rules anger, assertion, sexuality, and competitiveness--you can learn much about your desire nature
and how you handle anger. If you find yourself lashing out at others, arguing, or unreasonably stressed out, then you know
you haven't been managing your desire nature well. Use the blast of energy constructively by tackling projects that require
a lot of drive and physical stamina. Even things like heavy housework, gardening, or a trip to the gym will do you well.
Sun sextile Mars
You are able
to creatively solve problems and to instinctively take action when necessary under the influence of this transit. Stress is
eased as you feel confident about your abilities and your judgment. You are more able to assert yourself without rubbing people
the wrong way just now. You might find that you stand up for yourself or your principles. You are progress-oriented, and your
more passionate nature comes to the fore. It's time to take the initiative, to apply your confidence and energy to something
constructive. This is a period in which you are living spiritedly, indulging your desires without going overboard, and acting
spontaneously. You are bound to feel energetically supported by the circumstances of your life and by the people around you
You have "spring fever" now, no matter what the season! You could find yourself driven by a restless
desire to do something; but without a well-defined goal, you tend towards impulsive actions and get yourself into needless
arguments. Circumstances spur you into action. Your more passionate nature comes to the fore. You could be a little too eager
to impress others with an aggressive or inappropriate stance, or you may find yourself competing with others in unhealthy
ways. You can easily rub people the wrong way and instigate conflicts. As long as you channel this excess energy constructively,
instead of wasting your time arguing, you can accomplish much. If this transit plays out as bursts of anger and frustration,
instead of decisive action, then you know you are not handling your desire nature efficiently and you should make necessary
Sun trine Mars
You are living
life with spirit just now, and your energy and vitality are strong. The natural confidence that you exude during this transit
doesn't come across as offensive. In fact, your enthusiasm is well-received. It's a good time to take the initiative and to
act on things that you've only been thinking about doing. You are drawn to physical activity, and if you are involved in a
competitive event, you are more likely than usual to come out a winner. Effective decision-making is possible now. This transit
whets your sexual appetite, increases spontaneity and courage, and helps you to let go of some of your inhibitions.
Sun opposition Mars
Careless or impulsive behavior
can be a problem under this transit. You could find yourself feeling thwarted, frustrated, or restless. This is likely due
to the fact that you are not in touch with what it is you really want at this time. If you do know what you want, how to go
about getting it doesn't come naturally to you right now. A tendency to fly off the handle characterizes this transit, due
to inner tension between your will and performance. It's hard to find satisfaction or a sense of peace at this time. You may
feel decidedly "out of sorts". Conflicts with superiors could arise now, but are unlikely to yield desired results.
Watch also for hasty actions that could result in minor injury or stress.
