Many people look to horoscope columns as the New Year approaches in search of insight for the twelve months ahead. Yet those of us with even basic awareness of astrology know that a more valid and meaningful forecast can be derived when the tools of astrology are applied specifically to one’s own birth chart. These tools can be applied to the birth charts of nations, too, making it possible to use astrology to glean ideas of the upcoming year for an entire country. As for Canada, Astrology seems to reveal that we are due for some significant change in 2014. The year promises to be pivotal.

Here, dear readers, is where there is a misunderstanding between predicting and forecasting.
