The report was generated for 6 months starting from the 1st of February 2016 with the
following birth data: male, born on 23 December 1954 at 12:19 am in Brighton, Massachusetts.
Your sun sign is Capricorn. This is the sign in which the Sun is in your birth chart. Your
Ascendant is in Libra, and your Moon is in Sagittarius.
In case you are wondering why you are addressed as Capricorn in this report: If you had been
born 19 hours 55 minutes earlier, you would be the preceding sign Sagittarius. The exact hour
at which the sun moves from one sign into the next is different every year.
Neptune trine MC: Feet on the ground
Mid-March 2015 until mid-January 2017: Under this influence you are likely to deemphasize
practical and material concerns in favor of spiritual understanding and truth. And this can
be a very positive thing, so long as you do not completely ignore the affairs of the material
world. You must remain connected with the practical world but keep it from overwhelming your
During this time you become more involved in service to others, perhaps on a personal level by
taking care of someone who is close to you or perhaps through an institution, where you help
take care of the poor or disadvantaged. You may have to take care of a sick friend or loved
On the other hand, you may change to a field of activity in which social service is the goal.
Welfare or social work and nursing - particularly psychiatric nursing - are appropriate to
this influence. What happens is that you identify your personal gratification with service to
the larger social order. Personal reward or personal recognition for your efforts are not
important to you now, and you may be quite content to work behind the scenes.
On the negative side, your own ego drives are usually not very strong under this influence,
which is why you are able to engage in the kinds of work described above. But this means that
you may not stand up for your own valid interests or take adequate care of your own world.
Sometimes personal relationships suffer at times like this because you don't consider them
important enough. You think that they are only gratifying to you personally and are therefore
If that is the case, you are forgetting that you must take care of your personal needs, not
merely to gratify your ego, but also to make you a healthy and happy human being. Only if you
are happy and healthy can you be really effective. One cannot live on self-sacrifice forever,
and if you try, you are likely to become a depressing and joyless person. Those who are most
effective in helping society are also able to enjoy themselves.
Jupiter opposition Mars: In a big way
Beginning of October 2015 until beginning of June 2016: This is an extremely exuberant
influence, which inclines you to do everything in a big way. Your energy level is high, and
you are ambitious in everything that you do. You have a great need to expend physical energy,
but be careful not to act recklessly. Discipline and restraint are necessary, no matter what
Do not overestimate your abilities, either to yourself or to others. You are capable of doing
quite a bit under this influence, so you don't have to exaggerate. It is especially important
not to kid yourself about your abilities, however, because you will genuinely try to do the
impossible and quite possibly exhaust yourself in the process. For the same reason, don't
take unnecessary chances. The feeling of omnipotence that this influence confers is not real,
at least not to the extent that you feel it.
Sometimes this influence can signify a conflict with another in which you try to break away
from the other's restrictions. It is difficult to say in general whether your estimate of the
facts is accurate, that is, whether the other person is really demanding too much or
restricting you too much. Therefore you must examine the issue very carefully before you act.
You have a great need to be self-assertive at this time, but be sure to reserve it for a
situation in which it can be constructive. Avoid acting upon impulse. It could get you into
On the other hand, this influence also confers real courage. The difference between courage
and foolhardiness is simple self-knowledge, which you must have in order to make this
influence work out positively. If you are cool and collected in what you do, this can be a
time of considerable triumph as you overcome obstacles and accomplish deeds that you usually
would feel incapable of. If you have to stand up for yourself, you can, and in a way that
makes further dealings with your opponents constructive rather than destructive. But this
will happen only if you keep your head.
Jupiter sextile Saturn: Prudence and caution
End of October 2015 until mid-July 2016: During this time you approach expansion and growth
from a very careful and pragmatic point of view. Everything you do, every plan you make is
characterized by prudence and caution. You are interested in what could be, but this concern
is well balanced by your concern for what is already. You are neither idealistic nor
You do not see duties and obligations as limitations upon your life but as routes to achieving
wisdom and maturity. This is a fundamentally correct view, but you must balance your need for
freedom with your need to get work done in order to see it that way. That is what you are
doing now. You are oriented to work and duty, but you can also see that certain apparent
responsibilities are really not validly yours. And you are not willing to take on someone
else's share of the work unless you can see real benefit from doing so.
In financial terms, you are very thrifty at this time. You can see what the best investments
are, and you proceed very carefully while putting your money into them. Therefore these
investments are more likely than most to work out well.
During this period you will discover how to turn your ideals into reality, partly because you
can see which goals and ideals are realistic and which are not. You discard whatever is not
realistic, and you work for your goals very patiently, laying a solid groundwork for success.
This is usually a good time, because your prudence and thrift enable you to separate the real
opportunities from the illusory ones and thereby make real gains.
Jupiter sextile Venus: The right moves
Mid-November 2015 until end of July 2016: This is a very pleasant influence, although you may
not feel it very strongly. But if you know it is coming, you can act in certain advantageous
ways during this period. However, you will have to take the initiative, which you may not
want to do, because one effect of this influence is to make you feel very pleasantly
unambitious. It may be difficult to rouse yourself to action. Therefore this is a good time
for a relaxing vacation or any other kind of good time that doesn't require much energy.
This influence favors relationships, romantic and otherwise, because you are able to project
warmth and friendliness more easily than at other times. You are attracted to other people,
and they are attracted to you. Sometimes this influence can signify the beginning of a major
love relationship. At the very least you feel like flirting and drawing in people who are
If you have to make a good impression on someone, this is the time. You are much more able to
feel the subtle nuances of relationships, which helps you make the right moves. On top of
that, your feelings for other people are sincere, which they recognize and respect.
You will be attracted to pleasant and beautiful surroundings at this time and more than
usually repulsed by ugly and sordid conditions. You may very well feel compelled to do
something about such conditions if you encounter them now.
Financial affairs usually run quite well at this time. Money may come your way unexpectedly
and if so, you will probably be tempted to spend it on something frivolous. Follow your own
Saturn square Mars: Setbacks
Mid-January 2016 until beginning of November 2016: This can be a time of intense ego conflicts
with others, and you are very likely to be the loser if you are not careful. Your ambitions
in various areas may provoke others to try to stop you because they feel threatened. Or it
may be that you come across people whose goals are intrinsically opposed to yours. This may
happen in any area of your life; most commonly it will affect your public and social life, but
it can also affect your personal and domestic life.
During your first run-ins with others, you will probably be very bitter and antagonistic, but
you will also become cautious about venting your anger. The result is that you will
constantly be in a state of suppressed rage. Then someone who has nothing to do with your
mood may be the victim of a sudden unexpected burst of anger. Needless to say, that is not
the way to win anyone over.
You must not get discouraged by the failures you experience at this time. This period will
not last, and you can consider it a testing time for yourself and your ambitions. There is no
need to assume that your present setbacks are permanent.
Pluto sextile Saturn: Solid and real
Mid-February 2016 until end of December 2017: At this time in your life you will be able to
get along with very little if necessary, and you will be able to keep plugging away at tasks
with tremendous discipline. As a result this is a good time for getting your life ready for
hard times, even if this is not an especially difficult period.
However, even if this is a difficult time, you can be sure that this influence will help you
make it through. It gives you tremendous tenacity and toughness and the ability to apply
constant pressure on a situation until it gradually changes. Patience is the watchword of
this influence - not that you need patience, but that you have it.
Whatever your objectives, you will keep working at them until you achieve them. In a slow but
powerful way, this influence helps you realize your goals, and because you work so slowly, the
results you obtain are very lasting indeed.
You will also probably discover that you are changing during this period, not drastically and
suddenly, but slowly and at a very profound level of your being. And these changes will make
your life more solid and dependable. In general your life is moving from the less solid and
abstract to the more solid and real.
You may work alone for the most part now. You will probably prefer it that way, at least
until you have come somewhere near achieving your goals. This is a very good time for
researching alone, especially when painstaking work is required. Your ability to discipline
yourself is extremely high.
