The report was generated for 6 months starting from December 2013 with the following birth
data: male, born on 4 October 1923 at 7:55 am in Evanston, Illinois.
Your sun sign is Libra. This is the sign in which the Sun is in your birth chart. Your
Ascendant is in Scorpio, and your Moon is in Cancer.
Pluto opposition Pluto: Changes in your life
Mid-March 2013 until beginning of November 2015: This period represents the fulfillment of
those changes that were made at an earlier time in your life. You should examine the degree to
which your life has been complete and rounded. Have you managed to achieve balances among the
various things and issues that competed for your attention? The changes that occur during this
transit are likely to be the result of whatever was not fully done at that time.
However, you seldom have lived life in a perfectly balanced manner and no matter how hard you
try, there will be some things that you have to deal with now that you did not deal with
previously. At times it may seem that these changes are unnecessary and intrusive. You may
feel that you have lived a long life and should have some stability now. But change is always
part of life. Allow such necessary changes to occur and do not try to obstruct them, and most
of all, do not regard the changes with regret. You are still changing and growing, and you
will do so as long as you live. Always remember the old Buddhist saying, "Enlightenment is
easy for those who have no preferences."
Uranus opposition Sun: Security vs. freedom
Mid-April 2013 until mid-March 2014: During this time you should look for sudden changes in
your environment that challenge your expression as an individual and force you to take a stand
about what you really are. A sudden challenge in the outer world may force you to take more
responsibility for your life. Typical effects of this influence would include sudden events
concerning men; unexpected circumstances that force you to change your course of action;
sudden changes in a relationship, especially if you have not allowed self-expression for
yourself or your partner; and sudden changes in health, involving your heart and circulatory
By this time you have built up a lifestyle that you consider valid and practically realizable.
Most adults by now have given up certain ideals and goals as impossible. You have probably
surrendered large parts of yourself as an accommodation with reality. The suppressed energies
from this source lie behind the manifestation of this influence. It demands that hidden
pressures be released, but you will probably feel that these events are happening to you
rather than that you are doing them. What is happening is the passing away of something that
has prevented you from being free. The trouble is that most people come to value security and
predictability over freedom of self-expression. Consequently this influence is frequently
Jupiter conjunction Pluto: Self-betterment
Mid-August 2013 until mid-April 2014: 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
Jupiter trine Uranus: Split-second action
End of August 2013 until beginning of May 2014: This influence gives you a strong need to
express yourself by doing something that is different from your normal routine. You need to
experience a new kind of freedom in your life and to discover dimensions of living that you
have not known before. This may take the form of a search for inner truth on the metaphysical
or philosophical level, or it may take the more external form of a new activity in your life.
You are much more receptive to new ideas during this time, and you should be a bit careful
about getting into something solely because it is a novelty. However, for the most part this
desire for the new is constructive and will probably be quite good for you. This is an
influence that prevents you in a positive way from getting into a rut.
Sometimes this influence can denote a sudden opportunity or a piece of good luck that seems to
come completely out of the blue and take you by surprise. Often it is a sudden change or an
event that gives you a new chance in some way. It could be a sudden windfall or even a sudden
chance encounter that works out to your benefit. If such an event occurs, take advantage of
it. This is one of the few times when you shouldn't stop to ponder carefully before acting.
Such a decision often requires split-second action.
This is also one of the few influences that can be very lucky in gambling. But remember that
it will have this effect only if you are reasonably fortunate in such matters anyway. If you
are usually unlucky at gambling, this influence will probably not affect you positively.
This influence also enables you to grasp new ideas quickly. You can learn subjects faster now
than at other times, and you see very quickly the patterns in anything. On occasion this
influence can signify a fortunate discovery or invention.
Jupiter trine Jupiter: An opportunity
End of September 2013 until end of May 2014: This influence usually represents a time of
optimism and positive thinking in your life. You seem to be at a quiet point of balance that
enables you to look over the affairs of your life and get a good perspective on them.
Therefore, it is a good time to make long-range plans and to reorganize. You should use this
time to gain new perspectives through education or travel or by participating in one of the
consciousness raising activities or groups that exist now.
This is a time of psychological and physical equilibrium. If you have recently been ill in
either body or mind, this influence will help tremendously with the healing process.
This is also a good time to examine your ideals and your goals, for it may be possible to
actualize them in various ways now. At other times there is too much tension in your life or
too much resistance from others. If you are involved in any movement for reform, now is a
good time to take some positive action. Or you might become more involved in religion or
philosophy, because you need to know much that is beyond the apparent order of things.
It is quite possible that you will do nothing during this time, because it gives you a feeling
of balance but no drive to do anything in particular. You have an unusual sense of ease and
relaxation now. This is also a good time to travel, both for relaxation and for educational
The important point to remember with this influence is that it is fundamentally an
opportunity. You will not feel driven by any energies, nor will you feel any resistance to
your efforts to do something. You can make great use of this time, but you have to take the
Saturn conjunction Jupiter: Weather forecast
Beginning of December 2013 until end of September 2014: This influence can represent different
things to different people. It can be an opportunity for very careful sustained growth
through patient endeavor. Or it can be a period of extreme restlessness and impatience.
During this time you may expect any of the following: a change of residence; a change in
financial status, often for the worse; withdrawal from others in order to work; fondness for
solitude; industry and perseverance.
Two attributes probably determine which kind of effect you will experience. First of all, if
you are disciplined and persevering you will react with patience to the energies of this
But even more important is your attitude toward the areas of your life that this influence may
affect. You will persevere with the areas of your life that you are contented with, and you
will work even harder on them than otherwise. In those areas of your life that seem
oppressive you will experience tension and the desire to rebel against limitations.
It is difficult to say whether you are justified in being impatient with the areas of
restriction in your life. Certainly you are more than justified in trying to improve your
life. You will have to decide whether to cut off some element or build it up to a higher
level. Either response may be appropriate.
