The report was generated for 6 months starting from January 2015 with the following birth
data: male, born on 7 May 1953 at 10:00 am in New York NY, Alaska.
Your sun sign is Taurus. This is the sign in which the Sun is in your birth chart. Your
Ascendant is in Cancer, and your Moon is in Pisces.
Uranus square Uranus: On a pivot
Beginning of May 2014 until beginning of April 2015: This influence signifies the changes that
take place as you approach old age. There is often a crisis associated with this period, when
you suddenly realize that you are getting old. Roughly twenty-one years ago you confronted a
crisis of reorientation. At that time you should have turned your attention toward your inner
values, those that were important to you alone. If you handled that time properly, this
period will not be especially upsetting. Your life as an individual will have enough richness
that you will know how to handle the years ahead.
A common problem for people approaching retirement is that they have no idea what to do with
their coming leisure time. All they know is their work, and when that ends, their life
effectively ends. This is the crisis presented by this influence. You must realize that the
richness of your life does not come only from your achievements in the outer world of business
and society, but also from what you know and understand about life.
Jupiter square Sun: A matter of self-control
End of September 2014 until beginning of June 2015: This can be an excellent time, but you
must watch out for some pitfalls that could undo all the benefits. Basically this influence
is a test of your discipline and self-restraint. If you are not a restrained person, you will
react to this influence by going overboard in some way, overextending yourself or living in a
fool's paradise where you think nothing can go wrong. Or you might squander a valuable
resource, only to find on another day that you do not have enough of what you need. Sometimes
there is a feeling that luck will provide everything that you need without any effort on your
part, but this, too, is a false notion.
But this time can also provide a chance for real growth and expanded opportunities. It is a
matter of how much control you have over yourself. You have to know precisely where you are
and what your real needs are in order to take the most advantage of this time. You also have
to know when you can't handle anything more. Knowing when to stop is the real trick.
Sometimes this influence encourages ego inflation and excessive pride. Be careful not to act
in an overbearing manner, for you will set people in motion who will try to knock you down a
peg or two. Here too, you must know where to stop.
Under certain conditions this influence can trigger conflict with the law or with someone else
in a court of law. You may or may not lose, but don't act the role of outraged honor and
dignity. Try to find out exactly what the problem is and arrive at a solution that is
satisfactory to all.
Jupiter conjunction Pluto: Self-betterment
End of October 2014 until beginning of July 2015: This influence brings the urge to achieve to
the forefront of your life. You will make great, even extraordinary, efforts to gain success
as you personally define it. You work harder and strive to gain your objective with every
ounce of energy at your disposal. Consequently, this influence often occurs just at the
moment when some tremendous effort in your life bears fruit.
Sometimes there is a tremendous drive to gain power, and this influence can bring you power
even when you are not trying especially hard to get it. Remember that each person has
opportunities for a different kind of power. It may be great or relatively humble in terms of
the larger society, but it will be meaningful to you.
This power drive is sufficiently strong that it is difficult to deny, even if it has
absolutely no outlet. In that case you are likely to get into some kind of conflict with
authorities, even to the extent of arrest. If your ambition becomes the irresistible force
against an immovable society, you will probably be the loser. Therefore you must scan your
life to find areas where you can let this energy manifest itself. Surely in some area of your
life you can better yourself and achieve something that would bring you recognition and
respect. This is true no matter how depressed you think you are or how downtrodden your
circumstances. If you put all your energy into working on that, it is quite likely that you
will accomplish what you want.
The dominant drive of this influence is self-betterment, but each individual has to define
that term for himself. You can work in that direction now, and how well you succeed depends
largely on what you mean by betterment. Unfortunately, for some people it means simply money
or power. If you are one of them, throughout this period you will act as if obsessed, and
indeed, power can become a fanatical preoccupation. Other people may become obsessed by an
idea, usually concerning righteousness or morality. This also carries the danger that you
will lose track of all normal human values and try to live with a distorted set of standards
Saturn opposition Jupiter: Crab walk
Beginning of December 2014 until end of September 2015: During this time, your opportunities
for growth and expansion in life are limited. You may feel that you are moving sideways, if
not actually going in reverse. There may be financial problems, especially if you have
overextended yourself in the recent past. Another effect of this influence is restlessness
and impatience with restrictions imposed upon you. This period requires patience, but
unfortunately yours seems to be almost exhausted.
This is a period of readjustment after a period of possibly too-rapid expansion. Certainly it
is necessary to examine your recent past to make sure that you have acted according to what
you really want to do and really ought to do. This influence can have the effect of getting
you back into a path that you have wandered away from. Do not be discouraged by any recent
setbacks. Quite likely they were for the best, as you will probably see in a little while.
Make things more secure and more stable, but do not start any new projects now. If your
expectations are overly optimistic, you may be disappointed, but at least the reasons will
become clear. You will see what aspect of reality has interfered with your ideals, and in the
future you will be able to take this into account.
Also at this time personal relationships may go through a period of trial. You often feel as
if your personal freedom is unduly limited by others. Separations sometimes come about
because you feel that that is the only way to achieve freedom. And, in fact, you are usually
better off after a separation that occurs during this time.
This is a time of cutting back and finding a more stable form for your life. It is not a time
of growth and expansion. In fact, too much expansion in the past may be the reason for what
is happening now. In the future you will have to make plans on a more solid basis so that
changes in your life and pressure from circumstances and people cannot interfere so much.
This influence is a useful, if not always pleasant, encounter with reality.
Saturn square Moon: A time of readjustment
End of December 2014 until beginning of October 2015: This period can be quite a difficult
time for your personal and domestic life. On the psychological level you may feel lonely and
isolated from others. You may feel depressed and undeserving of love. Sometimes remembered
past actions make you feel guilty that you have not lived up to your own expectations.
Externally this influence can create difficulties in personal relationships, especially with
women, because your emotional communication seems to be cut off. The outside world may make
demands that conflict with your domestic responsibilities, so that you are forced to neglect
one or the other. Your parents may also be a source of concern at this time.
The conflict at this time is between the structure of your ego, your sense of individuality
and uniqueness and your need for connections and roots. Somehow it is difficult to be
yourself and do what you must, to maintain your relationships and get much-needed emotional
support and reinforcement from your loved ones.
These elements of your life are not truly in conflict, for they are complementary principles
that need to be properly balanced with each other. The problem is that one element has got
out of control at the expense of the other, so a time of readjustment is at hand. This
situation is the underlying cause of the loneliness and depression that often accompany this
You may have to make important changes in your life priorities. You may have to deemphasize
your public or social life in favor of your emotional and personal life, or you may have to
break off a relationship that has interfered unnecessarily with the demands of the world. In
either case, you must restore the balance between these two aspects of your life so that your
life will run smoothly again.
Saturn trine MC: Checking your attitudes
End of December 2014 until mid-October 2015: This time is usually characterized by
self-confidence and assurance. You are able to see where you are going now and to obtain help
in getting there. At the same time you are very concerned with knowing yourself on a deep
inward level, usually to facilitate achieving your ambition.
This is a time when you try to rely primarily on yourself. You will not refuse help from
others, but it is more desirable to go it alone or at least on your own. You need to prove
yourself to yourself and, to a lesser extent, to others. It is also necessary to establish
patterns in your life now that will lead to accomplishment later on. If you are still active
in your profession, you must develop disciplined work habits and learn specific ways to deal
with situations that arise. Here too you must rely on yourself, because you will be able to
judge your effectiveness only if you know that what you are doing is entirely your own.
Most people are rather conservative in their ways of doing things at this time. You may be
rather reluctant to experiment with new ways, but that is a pitfall. This should be a time
for making careful and considered changes. Such changes can be made voluntarily and without
much difficulty now, but later they will be forced upon you in a manner that may be quite
unpleasant. Getting into a rut now will ensure the survival of inappropriate behavior
patterns, which will create trouble later on.
You should specifically examine your attitudes toward authority figures, work and achievement,
responsibility, change and most important, although somewhat abstract, your attitude toward
reality. If you are trying to live by attitudes that you have been told to have and that are
not really yours, you will feel tense and uneasy when you think about them. Normally you
suppress these feelings because you consider it important to maintain your attitudes. But
these are the attitudes that have to be changed, because they signify that your thinking is
divided about that issue and that you cannot really put energy into making that part of your
