Neptune square Saturn: Self-doubt
End of April 2014 until mid-February 2016: During this time you will have problems with
insecurity and anxiety that seem to have no apparent cause. Your grasp of reality seems to be
slipping away, and you feel very disoriented and confused. Regardless of your material
circumstances at this time, this is ultimately a psychological influence; that is, it affects
you by causing your moods and your views of the world to change. Any problems you have now
will probably have their origins in your own mind. That is the first principle to grasp with
this influence. If you can handle its effect on your consciousness, you can handle anything.
The chief problem is that you will begin to have doubts and fears that you are not adequate to
handle your life, and you may feel like withdrawing from everything. That is not a good idea,
however, because you need others' points of view to balance your overly pessimistic views.
However, if someone is contributing to the shakiness of your self-confidence, you should cut
that person out of your life, at least for the present.
Insecurity and lack of belief in yourself have the greatest effect on your public appearance
and your domestic life. Remember that you have the same rights and privileges to be yourself
as anyone else has, and don't allow others to walk over you. But don't become so committed to
a position on any matter that you cannot let go of it without further damaging your belief in
yourself. One important effect of this influence is that it takes away elements of your life
that you have identified with - property, possessions, opinions or whatever. It shows you
that your existence does not depend upon being able to hold on to these elements.
In fact one manifestation of this influence may be that you will voluntarily give up your
material possessions for a self-denying, ascetic way of life like a monk's, although probably
not so extreme. The best way to deal with this influence is to see just how much you can do
without. You may be surprised at how little you need, and your burdens may be much lighter as
Uranus square Pluto: Scoop!
Mid-June 2014 until end of February 2016: The effect of this influence is to sweep away all
the old and outworn structures that you have built up and to create a total revolution in your
Your life is probably circumscribed by many elements from the past that no longer serve any
useful purpose in your life. You have not got rid of them because they represent a certain
security, but they are getting in the way of your continued growth and therefore must be
cleared away from your life. The events that occur now will force this change upon you, if
you have not already begun to change voluntarily.
This influence does not operate suddenly, but with deep psychological forces that operate very
slowly over a long period of time. They keep you moving and growing, make you throw off the
old and enter new ways of living. This influence represents a time when these forces have
built up to a critical point and must be released.
It is not possible to say exactly what will pass away from your life at this time, because it
will be different for everyone. But you will have a sense that a powerful force is emerging
in your life that you have been dimly aware of for some time. If you look into yourself, you
will realize that what is happening now is not really a surprise. You were hoping that this
new force would go away if you ignored it, but it didn't, and now you have to deal with it.
Because this influence affects a whole generation, the drastic changes you encounter now may
be partly the result of social and economic forces beyond your control. You may even feel
like an unfortunate puppet moved by historical events. But these forces, even though they
appear to be impersonal, play a vital role in your individual development. Accept this as a
challenge to you as an individual, and allow the old order and old ideas to pass away. This
will pave the way for your rebirth into a new way of life, where you will have the opportunity
to be more alive.
Jupiter square Mars: Insight and skill
Mid-September 2014 until mid-May 2015: This influence gives you a great deal of confidence and
makes you feel very self-assertive. Usually this is all right, but some people will express
this energy by becoming arrogant and domineering. Also be wary of overconfidence, resulting
in attempts to do things that are simply beyond you.
Intemperance in almost any activity could completely undo the basically positive nature of
this influence. Avoid exaggeration and try to maintain some sense of proportion. If you can
do all of this, you will be able to get more work done than usual, and you will do it well.
You will be able to accomplish things that you are usually afraid to tackle because you feel
inadequate, and you can take the initiative when you would otherwise wait for others to take
With care and planning and adequate restraint, this influence is a general sign of fortunately
timed action that takes advantage of the proper moment and makes the most of it. And this is
not luck on your part, but insight and skill. All of this requires preparation, however,
because impulsive actions at this time are not likely to be very effective.
It may be particularly important to placate persons in authority. If you act precipitately,
they may become alarmed and think of you as a threat, whether or not you intend to be. Of
course, if you do consciously intend to be a threat, this influence could be a help, assuming
again that you have planned carefully. But if you are not conscious of your intentions, you
may experience opposition from others without ever quite understanding why.
Jupiter square Sun: A matter of self-control
Beginning of November 2014 until beginning of July 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.
Saturn square Neptune: Keep it simple
Beginning of December 2014 until mid-September 2015: This influence signifies a time of great
uncertainty and possible confusion. Your objectives are unclear, and you may feel incapable
of coping with even the ordinary details of your everyday life. One of the best ways to cope
with this influence is to make your everyday life as simple as possible, because you are so
easily overwhelmed at this time.
This is not a time of robust confidence. You are questioning almost every aspect of your
life, particularly your goals and ambitions, your ability to attain them and even whether you
are worthy of attaining them.
At the same time you may feel that your universe is constructed in such a way that you cannot
ever live up to your ideals. Disappointment, discouragement and pessimism are all likely
effects of this influence. The danger is that this kind of negative thinking may actually
undermine your effectiveness in your work or other important activities. Feeling insecure
often creates circumstances in which you really are insecure. Do not take things so
seriously! Your negative state of mind is probably not justified by the facts of your life.
This is just one of those times when your spirits seem to sag.
You should try to hang on without making any permanent decisions or commitments on the basis
of your current pessimistic views. In a short time, you will understand that right now your
view of reality is changing in a way that ultimately should be very constructive, although it
does not seem so now. About two years from now, you will be able to make constructive changes
in your life based upon your new understanding. This is probably not the best time to make
Saturn trine Uranus: Working for change
Mid-December 2014 until end of September 2015: This is a time of stability and creative
balance between the old and the new in your life. You are able to live within a structure and
also engage in new and stimulating experiences, which keep you from becoming stale. Any
changes you have made or any structures that have been changed in the last several years can
become a permanent part of your life now. These changes are no longer challenges, but
interesting aspects of your life.
You have a feeling of patience about what is happening. You can see the need for change, but
you do not feel like rushing out and overthrowing everything. You can make the change in an
orderly manner. You can present ideas to others in a very careful, logical way that still
manages to impress them with the originality of your thinking.
Any task that requires long and disciplined application - learning a new skill, studying a new
body of knowledge or simply working patiently at a long task - is favored by this influence,
as long as it is leading up to some kind of creative change. Tedious tasks that leave no room
for new experiences will not be so useful to you at this time. You should be working for
change, even if slowly and patiently.
In fact you must not allow yourself to fall into a rut. Even change can become routine, if
you go around in circles with the same changes. That is not the proper function of this
