Pluto trine Mercury: Depth of perception
End of January 2012 until beginning of December 2013: This influence will help you gain
greater intellectual insights and enable you to learn a great deal about whatever you wish to
study. At the same time your viewpoints will become deeper and more subtle so that you will
really understand ideas that you had grasped only superficially. This is a good time to study
a new subject, go to school or take courses on any subject. But you will be most attracted to
subjects that explain phenomena in depth, especially the hidden aspects of things. Under this
influence you may also meet someone who has a very powerful effect upon your consciousness,
perhaps a friend who influences your thinking greatly or a guru figure who opens up the
universe to you.
You can be taught under this influence, and you can also teach. Your words carry more weight
at this time because the depth of your perceptions is evident to others. And you should not
limit your communication to direct conversations, you should use other media to teach as well.
If you have any inclination to write, this is a good time to do it, especially on subjects
such as psychotherapy or the occult.
Another aspect of this influence is that it will make you more concerned with studies of
hidden and secret things, such as psychology, magic or other occult traditions, or studies of
what is hidden in the earth, such as mining, mineralogy and geology. You want to understand
the forces under the surface that cause events to happen. You will study any subject you
choose in depth and with complete single-mindedness, so that you will be able to cover a new
discipline completely in a short time. During this time you may acquire a new skill in a much
shorter time than at other times in the past.
Neptune sextile Neptune: Positive reforms
Beginning of April 2012 until end of January 2014: This is a time of new awakening to a sense
of what your life is about. Before this time you have been working to establish your sense of
who you are in the community of adults, and by now you probably have a pretty clear idea about
that. But you may also have discovered that what you are doing with your life is not entirely
appropriate. You may conclude that in the past you were motivated by too narrow a conception
of what you are, by a need for security, or simply by petty ego-drives. Now you will begin to
see your life in terms of a larger perspective. You should do whatever is necessary to make
sure that you can live according to this new understanding.
This influence does not arouse your sense of idealism particularly, but it does make you see
that the universe is a very large place, and you are a much larger part of it than you have
You may be attracted to rather mystical ideas, but they will have meaning only according to
how they affect your everyday world. At this time you don't need more abstractions to chase
around - you need to make positive reforms in your life. And you will do so!
This influence will cause you to cut away your past and reorient your life in accordance with
the larger vision you have now. The many changes that occur may seem somewhat scary, but they
are ultimately for the best. You will find new freedom in a new consciousness.
Saturn opposition Mercury: Rigidity spells defeat
Mid-December 2012 until beginning of October 2013: At this time your ideas and plans may be
defeated, or they may have their greatest concrete realization. In either case, you will run
into considerable resistance from others to what you say. This may result in severing
relationships with those who disagree with you because there is no longer any communication
between you. Or it may result simply in the breakdown of communication that was once quite
Other people's resistance to your thinking is not intended solely to defeat you, although you
may think so. You may be tempted to give up if you are not secure in your thinking and plans.
But the resistance of others also forces you to give your plans clearer form and to take
definite steps to implement them. This takes hard work and much heavy thinking, but the
results can be quite good.
If your ideas cannot withstand the challenge or you do not have enough confidence to defend
them, this is likely to be a time of self-doubt and questioning. You will seek to find out
what is wrong with your ideas, and if you can be sufficiently detached, you may indeed find
out what is wrong. But if you just wallow in guilt, doubt and "being wrong," you will
accomplish little except to become depressed.
Although this is not an especially easy time, you shouldn't take a negative or pessimistic
view of matters. There are concrete challenges to be met, and you should use your energy to
recognize and meet them. Negative thinking is a form of self-indulgence that you cannot
afford at this time.
One factor of this influence may be causing you problems. If you have already allowed your
thinking to become too rigid and fixed, you will find it difficult to make occasional
necessary compromises when you are challenged. Even with the best ideas, a certain amount of
mental flexibility is necessary. Rigidity is almost certain to spell defeat, because the
forces that oppose you will become equally unbending and rigid.
Jupiter trine Ascendant: People at their best
From 9 May 2013 until 18 May 2013: This influence signifies your willingness to grow in
consciousness and experience through your contacts with others and to be more magnanimous and
willing to help others. In this you are helped by the fact that your relations with others
are very good at this time, and you experience people at their best. This makes you more
optimistic, and you rightly believe that whatever you give to others will be returned with
interest. A person may enter your life now who really helps you out in various ways,
especially by teaching you something about the universe and your role in it. This learning
will be on whatever level you are ready for, perhaps simply learning to be more tolerant and
open to new ideas or even encountering deep spiritual and religious truths through this
relationship. Certainly you are ready for a greater spiritual understanding of the world now.
You need to experience more than the superficial banality of life that many people become
mired in. Although you are inclined to idealize the world in general and certain persons in
particular, in the long run you will find that this is not a delusion but a period of truly
Your learning at this time is not limited to spiritual truths, for you are in general more
intellectually eager and willing to learn. This is an excellent time to go to school or take
a course in a subject that will give you greater insight into the questions that interest you.
On occasion this influence will signify the beginning of a relationship that can bring you
great emotional happiness. It could be a new love, although that is much more likely if
indicated more specifically by another influence at about this time. Any new love that comes
now will be very beneficial to your personal growth, whether or not it lasts.
Jupiter opposition Neptune: Wrapped up
From 5 July 2013 until 14 July 2013: During this time it is often difficult to keep the real
and the ideal sorted out. This is an extremely spiritual influence, which may make the real
world seem inadequate to you, causing you to seek an escape into a more ideal and perfect
"reality." Normally this escape is not through drugs or alcohol, but if you have a
predisposition toward them, it could work out that way. Usually, this influence indicates a
mental state in which you become wrapped up in all manner of abstract speculations or high
ideals that are difficult to actualize.
On another level, this influence may tempt you to become involved in unrealistic schemes that
you could only believe if blinded by extreme optimism. You may want to gamble and take risks
with your resources, and if you are not careful, wild speculations and gambling could leave
you bankrupt. Oddly enough, some people are so geared that they can handle the gambling
aspect of this influence very well and make seemingly wild investments pan out. Usually these
people have a talent for calculating the risks, however. Remember that there is a difference
between amateur and professional gamblers. The main point here is that if you are tempted to
get into some investment scheme, make sure that it is within your area of personal expertise.
Under certain circumstances this influence can signify the beginning of a very idealistic kind
of relationship, one in which you look to your partner as a kind of god or spiritual guide.
This may or may not be an accurate picture. You must be careful here also, because you could
idealize a person beyond all reason, even when she does not want you to do so.
And of course, you too could be the victim of an outright deception. Be careful to deal with
people as they really are, by accepting them as they are and not demanding that they conform
to an ideal in your mind.
Jupiter square Ascendant: On the lookout
Beginning of October 2013 until beginning of June 2014: This is usually an excellent time for
most kinds of relationships, but there are some pitfalls. Basically this influence signifies
a desire to grow and advance through contacts with others. Probably you are willing to give
as much as you get, although in some people this influence triggers a desire for advantages
through others without giving anything in return. In fact as they get ahead, such people act
arrogantly toward everyone, even those who helped them. This causes others to reject them,
and when they hit hard times there is no one to help them out.
But this result is totally unnecessary, and all you have to do to avoid it is to keep a sense
of humility and recognize what others have done for you. With this influence you have the
potential to become a truly better person, but only if you keep these warnings in mind.
Quite frequently this influence brings a seemingly "lucky" chance through a friend or
associate. But it is not luck so much as the fact that you are very sharply on the lookout
for opportunities that can benefit you. Your sense of timing is very acute, and your
sensitivity to others and their needs is greater than usual. That is one reason why it is so
bad to ignore others' needs, because you don't even have the excuse of ignorance.
Benefits can come to you in either your personal and domestic life or in your work. There may
be an opportunity to make money or to make improvements in your home that will make it much
more pleasant. Or you may meet people who will help you learn more about the world and expand
your view of it in various ways. You have to be willing to let this happen, however, which
means you must be receptive. This is another area in which being arrogant brings the risk
that you will get nothing of lasting value out of this period.
