Your 2009 Horoscope

Hey it isn't all seriousness around here all the time ... a friend passed this along and I thought I'd do the same. Have fun with it !


Your intrepid nature gives you a head start over lesser mortals when it comes to facing up to life's challenges. But you will have to learn to curb your impatience this year, especially on the financial front. Your competitive streak will keep you a step ahead of the opposition, but with your responsibilities under pressure you must be prepared to streamline your workload and, possibly, even your work force. You also need to be more flexible to compensate for any lack of help owing to financial constraints. By early May you should be able to see what needs to be done to increase your financial stability, but it will still be some weeks before you are in a position to do it.


Because success planet Jupiter enters the career area of your chart in January and forms a series of alliances with artistic Neptune, your creative talents will be much in demand this year. A new direction beckons, one that will mean working with different people on different kinds of projects, and you will discover skills you never knew you possessed. Something that happens around the time of July's eclipses
will remind you that there is more to life than worry and work. Your role on life's stage will alter in the coming months, and employers and other important people will have a growing influence on your fortunes. The kind of influence depends as much on you as on them.


The economic forecast may not be promising, but why should you care? With your chart pointing to 2009 as being the year when you discover where you truly belong, your personal outlook is exciting and inviting. The winds of change will start making you restless around the time of the solar eclipse at the end of January, and by mid-February you will have a better idea of where you are heading. A change of priorities, and possibly scenery, will remind you that the world has more to offer in
terms of experiences and environments than you have encountered so far. With three of the year's six eclipses focusing on your finances, your attitude to money will alter and Plan B will become an attractive alternative.


The world is changing at an alarming rate, and if you cling to outdated ideas you will soon be left behind. Potent lunar activity in your birth sign denotes a major turning point, a point where things and people you took for granted can no longer be relied upon. Autonomy will give you strength, and even if you are one of those Cancerians who believe that this is but one of many lives, you should act as if it is the only life you are going to get. There must be a sense of urgency about what you do: Tenacity is the key to success. With Jupiter, planet of growth but also of extravagance, influencing your finances, you can make money big time, but lose big time, too.

LEO JULY 24 - AUG. 23

New people will enter your life this year, and some of the things you believe in today won't mean a thing to you tomorrow. The eclipses in early 2009 will mark a crossroads in an important relationship, and with a series of life-changing Jupiter-Neptune conjunctions also affecting your relationships, you will have more on your mind than money. That said, the fact that the disruptive Saturn-Uranus oppositions cut across the financial axis of your chart warns of changes ahead, and some brave decisions will be necessary. It will force you to start thinking along
different, more flexible lines - something you should have done long ago. Never forget that your life has a purpose that has nothing to do with the contents of your bank account.

VIRGO AUG. 24 - SEPT. 23

Don't plan on taking things easy this year. Cosmic activity highlighting your responsibilities means that your workload will increase and your main task will be to ensure that you are adequately rewarded for your efforts. Your time is precious, so don't waste it on people who don't have your best interests at heart - especially during the Saturn-Uranus oppositions in February and September. Someone you meet casually in early July will light a spark that will burn brightly for several weeks
- fun while it lasts, but it won't go on forever. External influences will have an increasing effect on your life as the year progresses, and although 2009 will not be the most comfortable year, it will turn out to be a rewarding one. Eventually.

LIBRA SEPT. 24 - OCT. 23

Your astrological forecast for 2009 is a mixture of sunshine and showers. On the downside, the Saturn-Uranus oppositions indicate a bumpy ride when it comes to your work and responsibilities. On the upside, expansive Jupiter in Aquarius means that your imagination will work overtime and you must find ways to make your creative talents pay. Powerful lunar activity in the career angle of your chart indicates opportunities on the work front - especially in June and July - but they
may not be the sort you are hoping for. Don't discard them out of hand, as they could lead to other things. Your keywords for survival this year are endurance and persistence, and as you have plenty of both you can turn the challenges into positive experiences.


This will be a pivotal year and it is unlikely you will be in full control of what happens. What is likely is that your social circle will alter, and new friends and associates will have a significant influence on your fortunes. On the domestic front, you will move house, extend your family or change your living arrangements. February's lunar eclipse will force a difficult choice, although it may not happen until early August. Inevitably, whichever side you favour, the other side will feel
betrayed. But that is better than allowing a harmful situation to continue. There will be no shortage of challenges as the year progresses, but since your whole life is one long challenge, you will be well equipped to deal with them.


The whole tenor of your life will shift this year, forcing fundamental changes to the way you live and work. It will mean finding a way to please both employers and loved ones: If you favour one, you will lose the other's support - and that could be costly, financially or emotionally. However, your enlightened ruler Jupiter in Aquarius indicates that what you earn in 2009 matters less than what you learn,
and that depends on how open you are to new ideas. Much of what you believe in today won't mean a thing to you tomorrow - the world moves on and you must move with it. The next stage of your personal voyage of discovery will bring its own - very different - rewards.


The values you have now will not be the values you have at the end of 2009, so be ready to change your outlook and approach life from a less traditional viewpoint. Jupiter's transit of Aquarius will affect not only your finances, but your belief system, too. Distance lends enchantment, and the planets suggest that you will want to spend more time alone this year. The question is: Are you travelling in the right direction? With the Saturn-Uranus opposition cutting across the knowledge and enlightenment axis of your chart, there will be days when you have serious doubts. Ask yourself what you would like to be doing if family and financial problems did not exist. Then do it anyway.


You are in tune with the spirit of the times and, with enlightened Jupiter in your sign, never more so than this year. Changes to the way you live, think and earn your living may be unsettling at first, but you will come to appreciate just how fortunate you are. Some hard decisions will have to be made, but they will serve you well in the long term. The experiences of 2009 will have a profound effect on your attitudes, your beliefs and the way you live your life. Your roller coaster of a year will get off to a flying start around the time of the Aquarius solar eclipse at the end of January. Hang on tight: You may even enjoy the ride.

PISCES Feb. 20 - March 20

You will learn as much about yourself as you will about the world around you this year, according to your solar chart. And since the search for self-awareness matters to you more than most, it will be an enlightening period. On a more material level, you need to keep a close eye on your finances in early April, as some of the people you deal with, although not dishonest, may be careless. Most importantly, plan everything you do with the utmost caution. Two new moons in sympathetic Cancer will bring out your creative side and could lead to a money-spinning opportunity. This will be a memorable year for you, but whether it is for the right reasons lies in your hands.
