2007 YEAR AHEAD FORECAST
BY TIM STEPHENS
Planetary aspects pack our lives
with growth, hope and optimism in 2007! We can start successful businesses, find
love or friendship, even start new lives. We'll finally understand the nature of
the problems and transformations we underwent in the last ten years.
Unfortunately, this confidence and
hope also floods the psyches of warmongers. Any war that begins in November will
be a long one. Israel might show its nuclear muscle in January, June/July,
and/or November. Much of 2007 seems to be a slide toward a 2008 war, probably
involving Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Ethiopia. Saudi Arabia might suffer a punch
from within in 2007, from without in '08. A U.S. Iraqi withdrawal might be
delayed. Across the Atlantic, trouble brews in El Salvador. Argentina's death
squad records are exposed. Poland undergoes huge changes - biggest since the
1700's. (For more "world predictions" see my December 10, 2006 column (on the
astral site's archives).
Extreme weather will fill the
skies. Business or war news could cause a sudden stock market drop, maybe around
April/May or August/September.
Expect some blockbuster books, in sex, death, medical and financial subjects.
Lawyers and professors get big press, and bigger cheques; libraries,
universities and transportation facilities expand. Advances continue in optics,
gases and marine sciences; huge discoveries arrive in tech, death and medicine.
George Bush runs downhill through
We should all start practical and
love ventures before September. (Babies born before September - and after Dec.
19 - will be blessed with prosperity and good sense!) But we should not begin
important projects from Feb. 13 to Mar. 7, June 15 to July 9, and Oct. 11 to
- (March 21-April 19)
Like a gentle breeze, love
wafts into your life in 2007 - romance, increased marital
harmony, understanding and compassion for everyone. Your
vision and comfort soar to a new level in 2007. This signals
the end of three decades of puzzling opposition.
Your luck surges in cultural venues, far travel, higher
learning, religion, philosophy, insurance matters,
advertising or publishing, and legal zones. You win a
lawsuit, publish (or start writing!) your book, attend
university, or visit Timbuktu. For success, start projects
well before September. Enter school in the spring or summer
semester rather than in September.
Your magnetism could spark a verboten relationship in April.
True love might begin in May/June or August. Through August,
progress can be slow in romance, or could involve you
seriously with someone considerably older or younger. Be
gentle at home this autumn/winter: a major domestic change
brews, yet puzzles you.
Be ambitious in January/February. Money flows your way in
July - be a "saver." All year, try to reduce hands-on work -
seek management levels, delegate tasks, etc. Be spiritual
rather than severely practical.

- (April 20-May 20)
Wow - what a year! Your
life will change in ways that you'll remember always.
You could "birth" something - a baby, an investment, a
retirement fund, a business - that will still be in
your life - and growing - decades from now. Your
wisdom is highest in January, so use this month to set
your goals, to decide what's useful, loving, pleasing
and proper. The periods of strongest and luckiest
change and commitment will be January (when your
career is blessed) April/May (when money finds you,
and demands a decision) and June and August (when your
home and family are lucky, sweet and growing). Be
careful with higher-ups and your career in March, and
avoid clandestine attractions May/June.
Make all major changes, commitments and investments
before September. This month through December promotes
financial/practical mistakes. Money literally pours
your way in August/September! The autumn is filled
with short trips, friends and siblings.
All year, be social; don't seek deep private
pleasures. Light romance will bless you; deep
infatuation will fool you.
A beautiful, deep, fertile year, Taurus! Create your

2007 replaces a decade
of relationship puzzles with pure heart-felt joy! You
could meet your future mate, and marry. You can break
free from an unhappy marriage or work bond, and be
catapulted into a fresh new life. If you're happily
married, problems of health or children diminish. New
React with joy and eagerness toward others - for they
hold your luck. Life will percolate with opportunities
for fame, dealings with the public, relocation,
marriage, business partnerships, agreements and
negotiations. Publishing, distant travel, cultural
events, love, higher learning, law courts, libraries,
places of worship - these are lucky venues for you
this year. Start projects and relationships before
September, as the autumn brings "future failures."
Money arrives in buckets October to December - don't
All year, seek prestige, status and career success.
Don't withdraw, give up, nor remain housebound. Do
relocate, but don't buy real estate - 2008 holds the

It's a work year,

responsibility to boost your pay. You can gain from
investments, too, before August. Late year, your
workplace could undergo a huge transformation. You'll

patient, diplomatic! If you're a homemaker, kids and

difficulties with the hips and thighs. Minor ailments

Fascination and compassion (odd combination!) continue

around January (arguments likely) or March, when
destiny might bring you a lover-teacher. Your romantic
magnetism soars October through December, attracting a
serious suitor. If love is true, wed. But if doubt
exists, realize 2008 will begin a whole decade of
All year, welcome the profound and reject the casual,
especially in relationships and thoughts. Read a book;
attend church; cross an ocean!
(July 23-Aug. 22)
A huge wave of romantic
luck, creativity, self-expression and pleasure washes
over you in 2007. You could meet the love of your life
(or just did, last December). If you're married,
children bring days of pure joy. Teachers, child-care
workers, artists, creators, jewelers, managers, show
business workers and speculators face a tremendously
successful 2007. For the best results, take big risks.
Start ventures - including love - before September.
Your serious, hard working stance (mid-2005 to
September 2007) might finally be rewarded with a
promotion, a gain in partnership finances, stock
options, or financial progress. A pay raise might be
delayed until 2008. All year, work to grow your net
worth rather than your earnings. Invest in stocks, but
Perception and honesty remain crucial in business and
love. Tell only the truth. If you suspect deception,
walk away. Avoid drinkers, druggies. Chase true,
innocent love, not lust. January stuns you with
someone's allure. February/March are deep and
mysterious. You might wed (or travel afar) in
May/June. Late summer's social gathering could put you
in love's spotlight!
- (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Before August, fate's
big wheel gives one huge turn - and brings you to a
perfect new home. This stops the slide in your
fortunes. Take this literally or metaphorically.
You'll be able to ensure your future retirement or
your children's happiness, heal or expand your family
and your own soul. Childbirth, realty purchases,
and/or counseling could be involved. You must step
forward bravely - do so!
Relationships continue to surprise, excite and
challenge. Others are unpredictable - yet they have a
finger on the truth. Seek advice, accept help, nurture
associations and form bonds. Don't withdraw, nor be
independent. (2007's "new home" should not be a
Someone sweet enters in January/February. Your
passions rise in April/May. Lust tempts you May/June.
Be diplomatic on the career front August/September. A
sexy friend could appear from October onward, and keep
you dangling in fascination right into the summer of
2008 - do you want this? Better decide, because
something bigger is at stake. (2008 will sizzle
Take care of your digestion, and practice patience at
home, in August/September.
- (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Follow your curiosity. Travel,
phone, pluck the internet, peruse books and newspapers
- ask questions! 2007 will provide you with
information and ideas that will later bring profit,
luck - and roots. For example, a town you visit now
could become your home in 2008. Think of 2007 as a map
filled with places to explore - later, you'll realize
it was a map of your future.
You could enter a light romance this year, especially
in early January, March, May/June, or
August/September. The spring and August stand out.
Marriage is possible, but is the love profound? If
you're married, your mate will be talkative, lively
and cheerful. You'll both love traveling this year.
Members of older and younger generations befriend you.
Keep steering your work cart into more creative,
pleasurable areas. Hands-on efforts bring progress and
good results, especially in March, but subtle
dead-ends occur in administrative situations: be alert
in September. Avoid large investments, particularly
from September to mid-December.
Sailing, water aerobics, and pharmaceuticals benefit
your health this year; but mega-vitamins and hard

year, Scorpio! Work continues to be long and heavy
through August, but it brings a pay raise, promotion,
or lucrative client list that lifts you to a new
income plateau - lasting, perhaps, until 2019! Tax
refunds, buying/selling or real estate deals can also
swell your bank account. Travel, higher education,
cultural events and large animals hold financial
potentials. Your money luck's strongest in January and
April through August. DON'T invest September through
Though true love might prove elusive, you'll attract
powerful sensual opportunities. This spring a
bona-fide affair could combine lust, romance and
marital urges! August sparks a sexy attraction that
might turn into a major adventure, lasting into 2008.
Be honest and moral. All year, seek intimate loyalties
rather than social situations.
Last year's boost of confidence leads to 2007's good
health. Guard against weight gain or stomach upsets
March/April and possible "lower body" infections
Joys from children soar in 2007. You could escort a
son or daughter down the aisle, or watch your kids'
- (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Say hello to freedom,
luck and prosperity! 2007 replaces a decade of gloom
with joy and optimism! A new light will shine, solving
many spiritual and emotional mysteries. You'll head
straight for success in travel, law, education,
cultural involvements, publishing/writing, lecturing,
communicating and similar pursuits. In these, seek
knowledge, not "career prominence." Let your real
If you took a significant step last November or
December, continue with it - and start new ventures,
too, before September - these actions and projects
will bring good fortune in 2007. Buy real estate
and/or nurture your family, especially in March.
Money arrives in January/February (bank it) but the
really big bucks arrive in 2008. Your links with
government, institutions and charitable organizations
change deeply late in 2007. Your health will generally
be tops, but avoid overindulgence (alcohol, rich
foods) especially October onward.
Love won't be a stranger. Your increased optimism
attracts others, especially April through June and
August/September, when romance could spark a marriage
possibility. Someone might be very willing to
accompany you around the world, whether for business
- (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
2007 faces the past, to
prepare you for the future. Contemplate your life, and
recharge your emotional and physical batteries. Next
year (2008) will bring you excitement, luck,
completely new goals and a new career and social
environment. Be ready by being rested!
The present year is excellent for research, liaisons
with institutions, the government or charitable
organizations, for administrative activities, for
warehousing and work efficiencies (e.g., assembly
lines). Increased money arrives in March; this month
might also signal the end of a financial source.
Bosses approve your work in April/May and November.
Your investment luck runs high before September.
September releases your finances - and libido - from a
two-year "grip of restriction."
Your sensual magnetism could spark a "sexy friendship"
in January/February. Don't marry mid-May to June. An
autumn blend of romance, lust, excitement and
frustration might nudge you toward marriage. But
remember, 2008 will change many things!
All year, avoid "profound" situations - weddings,
lawsuits, international affairs, higher learning.
Remain casual - make verbal agreements rather than
written ones, take short trips rather than long ones.
Your social life expands
mightily in 2007. You'll be welcomed into at least one
new group, perhaps two. New friends will bring you
spiritual, health, governmental, and career benefits
for an entire decade - and open your eyes to new
vistas and new desires. 2007 brings wishes true, and
create lucky ones for future fulfillment!
You might meet a future mate or "love friend" at a
social gathering, especially this spring or in
August/September. October to December might spark a
lust tryst with a co-worker. Emotions are impulsive
and unpredictable all year, so exercise caution about
Your income swells in May/June - but spending could
break the bank! Many practical projects will work
before September, due to your ability to befriend
those involved. Avoid partnerships, nay-sayers and
skeptics. Don't start major projects, nor invest,
September to December - just work hard to complete
what you started earlier.
All year, earn money rather than invest. This isn't a
good time to start a business, but it's a great time
to increase sales, swell your client list, and enlarge
- (Feb. 19-March 20)
2007 gives you a ladder
and says, "Climb it." You could land one of the
biggest promotions of your life, start a very
successful project in business, career or learning, or
gather a coterie of lucrative clients. Bosses, VIPs,
even parents will sing your praises and listen
favorably to your proposals. Your best periods for
success are March through June (use June to establish
territory) and August. Money flows swiftly May/June -
sock away any gains - don't spend! Begin ambitious
ventures well before September, as the autumn/winter
might trap you in a prestigious but unprofitable
Your sexual magnetism soars this spring, but you might
have to choose between the bedroom and the boardroom.
July brings romance, and October into 2008 sparks a
memorable, sweet love. But you would be wise to avoid
irrevocable bonds all year, in love and business.
Downplay your temper in August/September.
Your health's fine, but watch constipation, bruises,
"bone chips," and your back. Though you'll be
terrifically busy, your spiritual side continues to
grow. March/April bring an insight that explains
