I did a quick little chart yesterday for the New Year to see if anything stood out. I’m not any good at predictions. There are plenty of astrologers who are, but I’m not, and I don’t need to be. This is a personal interest of mine, not a professional one. But I have a insatiable curiosity, so I had to look.
Jan. 1, 2013 has a well integrated chart – everyone is included in several positive and negative aspects, with the positive ones outweighing the rest. Looks like it’s going to be a rough and tumble year of changes, but we’re heading in the right direction. Change can be an uncomfortable thing for people at the best of times, but it looks like many of them will be welcomed. There is a lot of activity in the cadent houses of the chart that show us to be flexible and adaptable to changes.
Saturn in the Second House show money and other resources will be highlighted. A square to Mars in the Fourth House indicates that the family home will suffer from poor banking policies. However, both Saturn and Mars are well-supported by other planets and we may actually see some positive banking reforms start to take place. Jupiter in the Ninth House is the subject of several aspects, both good and bad. On the bad side are special interest groups trying to manipulate the areas represented by Jupiter such as religion, international affairs and even legal matters. However, Jupiter is also involved in two major trines – positive energy – that will not only give those areas strength, but will also lead to reforms in those areas in a very surprising, and possibly brilliant, way.
In general, I’d say that the outlook for 2013 is positive. We may start the year at opposite ends of the playing field, but it looks like this will be a year of working out differences and coming up with new and unusual solutions.
I was hoping to get some sewing done today, but my computer starting giving me problems this morning so I spent most of the day cleaning up my hard drive. We invest so much of our daily lives in our computers – family pictures, emails to friends, files of legal documents, etc. – that it pays to put in a little extra time to keep them running well.
The first two pictures were taken in mid-December as I and a few other birders tromped around the area, making records of any birds we saw for the annual Christmas Bird Count. The temperature was mild, but it looked very Christmassy. The last picture is Rusty and Ginger enjoying their Christmas present – piles of paper packing from a box that came in the mail (which was also part of their “present” but not shown in the picture). Can you see Rusty? Ginger is looking straight at him.
Take care and hope you all have a great 2013!
Until next time,
