"It's not in the stars to hold our destiny, but in ourselves" William Shakespeare
Some cultures believe the first day of the year actually begins March 21st, the first day of spring also known as the Spring Equinox. We all carry a personal yearly cycle which begins on your birthday. Finding out the day you were born will help determine the planetary aspects that effect you the most. Go to "daysofbirth.net" to find out the day of the week you were born. There are 7 days in the week and each day carries the energies of a specific planet.
Also, starting on your birthday, you enter the first 52 day cycle - the Sun. The next cycle is the Moon followed by Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, ending with Saturn. You will find that your Saturn period which is the planet of karma will be your most difficult time in that you will face any negative karma you have accumulated during that year. This is the worst time to be married, during your Saturn period, as most end up in divorces. The most favorable is either your Sun period or your Venus period. Starting with your birthday count off your 52 day cycles and mark it in your calendar so you will know what cycle you are currently in. Look to your significant others as well if you are looking to be married.
