Ashtangis get used to the ritual of a certain order and many never get past thinking they’re dependent on it, and thus they are. But it’s all in your head!

Your Birthday Year Forecast:
The New Moon Solar Eclipse in your Solar Return chart points to a significant year ahead, and suggests that you will instinctively begin a new phase of your life. 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.
This can be a year in which you experience important turning points, or you could begin new projects or goals that have a long-term impact on your life.
You are taking pride in your relationships this year, and it’s a strong time for strengthening and supporting others, as well as for building trust. You tend to instinctively know how to behave in ways that boost others’ confidence. This can be a pleasantly ambitious period when pairing up to accomplish goals can be especially successful.
There may be a stronger need for solitude when you work, or this can be a year in which you often retreat to work on specific tasks on your own. Watch carefully for self-defeating thinking. Seek out your spiritual center and talk through concerns and problems with those you trust, who can help you to make more objective decisions.
You are more sensitive artistically, your imagination is stirred, and you have an increased appreciation for subtleties this year. You are inspired and could even inspire others with your words. Some of your hunches could be prophetic. You are thinking more creatively, and express yourself with more sensitivity, compassion, and warmth. This is a good year for artistic expression and writing projects, particularly in the second half of your birthday year.
You seek out nourishment and naturally nurture and support others in the period ahead. Needs and cravings are in strong focus, and you are drawn to those things you see as wholesome, healthy, and natural. It’s a strong year for nurture and establishing healthier habits.
You can experience more popularity or a stronger interest in others and making connections. This is a year of general fortune through your relationships and meetings.
You may be starting a whole new “chapter” in your life story this year, and there can be significant new beginnings. It’s a strong year for showcasing a new and improved “you”. The connections you make this year are growth-oriented and encouraging. You are especially creative and inspired at this time, and relationships are in strong focus.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Language is always evolving and so are the other methods and tools we use to understand one another. Because you keep learning about communication and improving your effectiveness, you’ll get more of what you need.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (March 9). Before things get interesting (and they will), it’s important to remember to cherish eventless times!

November will show you a different part of the world. Cancer and Gemini adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 3, 20, 25 and 41.
