The moment of birth of anything reflects the seed level of potential energies and archetypal patterns at work throughout a given year. Like any other event chart, the chart for the New Year reflects the potentials and possibilities, as well as the areas of concern and pitfalls that may occur. However, the luxury that we have from seeking counsel from the stars is that we are endowed with knowledge that allows us to make the most of any celestial influence and the ability to understand what those archetypal energies require of us. Although most New Year astrological chart analysis will focus mainly on personal astrology, this forecast will focus more on businesses and how to harness the energies of the cosmos to make 2013 a productive and profitable year.
I will be forth right from the onset, 2013 looks to be an extremely frustrating year. Throughout 2012, I wrote numerous times about Uranus in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn – from both the personal and business perspective. It is worth going over this dynamic aspect again! Uranus in Aries reflects the tearing down of existing ideologies (Uranus) in order for individuals to explore their own individuality (Aries) and Pluto in Capricorn reflects the disintegration and renewal (Pluto) of governmental structures that are no longer viable for modern society. When you combine these two energies, you get a war between our need for personal freedoms (Uranus in Aries) and governmental structures (Pluto in Capricorn). This energy will continue to be operative over the next year as Uranus and Pluto will aspect each other three times and since this is a collective aspect the feeling tone will bleed into every other aspect over the next twelve months.
