How will this year be like for me?

Dima Gur

I've received such a question and had to think twice on how to approach it.
I've also checked some annual natal techniques and most were not a good fit since the question came 6 months after the querent's birthday (no sync with solar returns or annual profections).
* The querent said 'year' but meant 12 months

I think I'll approach the question with the following things in mind:
1) See what L1 is doing in the chart, where it's heading, etc.
2) See which planets are located in the 1st house.
3) Check if any timing technique sums up to 12 time units, and single out that significator.

How would you approach such a question?
