Your birthday is a chance to celebrate ~you~ (even if that means a Zoom party for Aries bbs this year), but it probs also means you’re thinking about the year ahead. Will you fall in love, get your dream job, finally learn how to make the perfect martini? Well, bb, we’re here to give you the ~ultimate~ guide to predicting your year. It’s all about the Moon. Specifically, what phase the Moon is in when you have your Solar Return—which is just astrologer-speak for your bday.
Astrologers call your bday your Solar Return because it’s when the Sun *returns* to the position it was in when you were born. But although the Sun returns to hang out in the same place every 12 months, the Moon is off doing its own thing—it's in a different phase every year. By looking at what phase the Moon's in on your bday, you can get an idea of what your year ahead will be like.
If your birthday falls on or near a New Moon…
The New Moon is always a time for new beginnings. Start a new project, ask out a crush, or begin a job search. Seize the day, bb!
The Year Ahead
If your birthday falls on a New Moon, or up to three days before or after it, your entire year is going to be full of new adventures and relationships. If you have a New Moon birthday, expect to add new friends (or lovers) to your life, get a new job, and make moves—physically, like a new apartment, or mentally, like you finally block your on-again, off-again ex. When your next bday comes, you’ll look around and realize your entire life feels different, in the best way.
New Moon birthday years are hopeful and fresh.
If your birthday falls on or near a First Quarter Moon…
First Quarter Moons take place after a New Moon and before a Full Moon, when you can see about half the Moon from our POV here on Earth. This is the when all the plans you made during the New Moon starts to gain momentum, but there's still a lot to do. So: you better werk.
The Year Ahead
You’re in “hustle mode” for the year. You're going to be busy AF, but by the time your next bday comes, those changes you made will have started paying off. Hard-earned results are on the horizon, bb!
First Quarter Moon birthday years feel busy and are all about ~growth~.
If your birthday falls on or near a Full Moon…
The Full Moon is a time of culmination, astrologically—aka this is when the “harvest” comes in (or you get a promotion at work, make your relationship IG-official, win an Oscar… you get the idea). Full Moons bring endings, achievements, and breakthroughs, and obvi make us emotional AF. People tend to get a bit more impulsive, intense, and passionate during Full Moons. Ya know, like werewolves. But super-accomplished ones. A-woo!
The Year Ahead
Having a birthday fall on or near a Full Moon is a mega-blessing because it means that the coming year is going to be ~filled~ with major achievements. All the hard work you’ve done will finally pay off. Basically, start practicing your Oscar/Grammy/Employee of the Month acceptance speech, stat. You’ll have a year filled with relationship milestones (like falling in love, getting engaged, moving in together, or adopting a pup)—or maybe relationship endings, if it's not meant to be (#ThankYouNext). Expect big things at work, like a promotion and a raise. You might also see major life moments, like a graduation, marriage, or having a child. When you finish a Full Moon year, you’ll look back and think W-O-W. You’ll also realize that you’ve tied things up in a nice little bow and you’re ready for your next ~phase~.
This is the year you’re ~stepping into your light~, bb.
If your birthday falls on or near a Last Quarter Moon…
The Last Quarter Moon occurs halfway between a Full Moon and a New Moon—basically, it's the opposite of the First Quarter Moon. This is a time for closing chapters, releasing, and letting go as you prepare to ~start over~. BTW, your intuition is at an all-time high rn, so trust your gut.
The Year Ahead
This year is all about getting in touch with your spiritual side and recognizing your ~intuitive powers~. The Universe is offering you messages about the past *and* the future. It’s up to you to figure out what to leave behind this year. You’ll still get some of the effects of the Full Moon, so you’ll see a “harvest” in your relationships and work life. You’ll also feel the need to rest, heal, and plan for the future, because change—the good kind—is right around the corner.
This is a year for ~reflection~. You’ll be in your feels, shedding the past as you get ready to hit the reset button.
