The report was generated for 6 months starting from December 2013 with the following birth
data: male, born on 15 April 1955 at 6:45 am in Alexandria, Egypt.
Your sun sign is Aries. This is the sign in which the Sun is in your birth chart. Your
Ascendant is in Taurus, and your Moon is in Capricorn.
Jupiter square Mercury: Big plans
Beginning of September 2013 until mid-May 2014: This influence signifies increased mental
activity and a desire to communicate to others something that you consider important. Whether
or not your message is important, you probably think it is, so you should take the time to see
if that is true. There is no point in loading people up with your ideas and opinions unless
they are worth something. And when you speak to others at this time it is vital that you
listen to their response. For although you have big ideas and plans, there is a tendency now
to overlook details. You may be unwilling to listen to criticism, but if you listen and heed
what you are told, this can be an excellent time for making decisions, planning, negotiating
and concluding deals or agreements. But this will happen only if you listen to others'
This is usually a time of optimism and positive feelings. You have confidence in your ideas
and are able to get them across. Communications of all kinds are important to you; for
example, you may conceivably do some writing at this time.
It is also important not to overextend yourself. Make sure that your plans are no larger than
your ability to cope with them. Sometimes with this influence the pace can get pretty hectic,
because you have to handle many different affairs at once. This is when sloppy thinking can
become especially dangerous.
During this period you may encounter resistance to your ideas and opinions from a number of
sources. It is a good time to examine your ideas and see how well they really hold up in an
argument. It is a good time to change any views that do not hold up because you can easily
enlarge your viewpoint under this influence. You feel no need to be petty or quarrelsome, but
you do feel compelled to defend the ideas that are important to you. Any truly important
beliefs will hold up during this confrontation and become more a part of your basic mental
pattern than ever.
Jupiter sextile Ascendant: Efforts with friends
Mid-September 2013 until mid-May 2014: This is usually an extremely fortunate influence for
all kinds of social contacts. You will benefit through others, and they will probably benefit
through you. If you choose to go it alone at this time, you will waste a valuable
opportunity, for you will profit tremendously from team efforts with friends. Also you will
have opportunities to work on projects that may be to your personal advantage; these will come
from persons you encounter every day at work or around your neighborhood, people from whom you
do not expect much beyond the usual social exchanges.
At this time you will have the opportunity to expand your contacts with the larger world.
Sometimes this influence is a sign of travel, but certainly you will encounter people whose
backgrounds are quite different from yours and whose experience will increase your
understanding of the world. Several of these people may become permanent friends whom you
will benefit from knowing.
You may also benefit from old friends. You may be offered a chance to go into business with a
friend, or a friend may tell you about a good chance to get ahead in some way.
At the same time, you feel benevolent and well disposed to your friends and acquaintances.
You are willing and able to help those who need it, and generally you display an attitude of
supportive kindness to the people around you, for you don't want to see people in trouble.
This basic willingness to give and to help others enables you to receive much from others as
well. People sense that you will conduct all transactions fairly, so they are willing to be
fair to you. Actually this is always true, but you are more able to see it at this time.
Jupiter conjunction Jupiter: Wonderful opportunities
End of October 2013 until beginning of June 2014: This influence indicates the beginning of a
new cycle of growth and progress. However, it is often the focus of exaggerated expectations.
You may expect sudden windfalls, great wealth or luck, and all kinds of wonderful
opportunities. And these things do happen sometimes with this influence, but most people
should expect more subtle, but equally useful effects.
Events now, such as meetings with persons or even changes in your psyche, open the way for you
to become wiser and more mature and to have a broader understanding of the world. At this
time you will reach out consciously and unconsciously and ask more of the world, but at the
same time you are willing to give more to the world.
This influence can make you feel either more demanding or more giving toward others, but you
are not likely to get much out of it if you think only of what you can get. The law of
conservation of energy in the universe says that you can transform the energies in your life
from one form to another, but you cannot create them out of nothing. This influence
represents a time when you should see whether you are doing that in your life.
Concretely, you can expect persons who are good for you to come into your life. Or
circumstances will arise that give you increased freedom or an opportunity to do something
that you have never done before. Educational opportunities may come to you at this time, or a
chance to travel. Sometimes this influence does in fact bring about financial advantage, but
you should not sit around passively waiting for it to happen. This is an excellent time to
invest or expand in business as long as you are very careful not to overdo it or overextend
Saturn conjunction Descendant: Relationships on trial
Mid-November 2013 until end of August 2014: This influence has two quite different meanings.
First of all, it can indicate a period in which intimate one-to-one relationships become an
area of great responsibility. Chief among these is your marriage or living with your partner,
but it also refers to close partnerships of any sort. You must pay close attention to these
relationships. Strains and tensions that have been developing in the recent past are likely
to surface now and must be dealt with immediately! Sometimes the only way to handle these
problems is to end the relationship, so this can be a time of great trial for a marriage.
Even under the best of circumstances you will have to work harder on partnerships and try to
solve as many problems as possible.
Related to this is another possible area of concern: namely, problems with people who oppose
your interests in various matters. Such people can range from outright enemies to those who
simply want to keep you in check for some reason. If this kind of problem arises, all you can
do is try to understand the person's motivation and do what you can to eliminate their reasons
for opposing you.
But aside from these two kinds of problems involving others, this influence means that at this
time you are making a significant breakthrough in your life.
For several years now you have been working quietly to get ahead and make new beginnings,
particularly in your professional life. Now the work you have been doing is beginning to bear
fruit and you will be acknowledged. In fact, one of the reasons you are having conflict with
enemies is that now you are really beginning to get somewhere in life, which is likely to be
threatening to others.
At any rate, now you are ready for the upward climb to attain your goals in life. This is a
very critical time, when you must work very carefully to get ahead. Do not take any shortcuts
to success that violate what you believe to be right.
Saturn trine Venus: It can happen now
Beginning of December 2013 until end of September 2014: This is an excellent time for you to
achieve real stability in your relationships. Your individual personal needs will not
conflict with the demands of the relationship, and you can base them on a realistic
understanding of who you are and what others need from you. Your vision is clear, and you are
not likely to enter a relationship under the spell of romantic illusions. If you are
romantically inclined, in fact, your relationships may seem rather practical and dull now.
However, you can use this kind of experience. A relationship should be an encounter between
yourself and another individual that helps you define and understand yourself more clearly.
That can happen now.
Sometime in the last few years many relationships that were inappropriate for your life were
weeded out. That process may have been quite painful, but it was necessary at the time. Now,
however, the only relationships left are those that have real value in your life. You should
be working on them to improve your understanding of yourself and how you relate to others.
This is a time for growth relationships that expand your awareness. For this reason, you may
have a relationship in which there is a considerable age difference between you and your
partner. The one who is "older and wiser" may act as a guide, exposing the other, through the
dynamics of the relationship, to a larger and more realistic view of the world.
Also this influence favors most business and professional relationships, because you now are
able to negotiate on the basis of your real needs and self-understanding while appreciating
the other person's real needs. And since you understand the need for realism in
relationships, whatever you decide on at this time will be mutually profitable.
Creativity under this influence is not stimulated or checked, but it does have greater
discipline and rigor. You may be attracted to difficult and exacting techniques or involved
in particularly painstaking craft forms. Anything that you make now is likely to be practical
Saturn conjunction Saturn: Pruning your life
Mid-December 2013 until beginning of October 2014: This is one of the most important times in
your life. A major cycle of experience is closing, and great changes are about to take place.
How great these changes are depends largely on what you have been doing with your life over
the past several years. Have you been living as you feel you should or as you think others
want you to? If you have been doing the latter, this influence will have a greater impact.
This influence occurs about every twenty-nine years. The first such influence occurred when
you were about twenty-nine, and the second is now, between your fifty-eighth and sixtieth
Last year, many aspects of your life have begun to change. Relationships may have changed,
and you may have changed your residence or your job; you have been dominated by an urgent
feeling that if you don't do everything you have always wanted to do, you will never have
another chance. And now, at about fifty-eight, you will feel that a substantial portion of
your life has passed and that you had better get on with making it all work. If your
relationship is unsatisfactory but you have been making the best of it, you will examine that
relationship even more thoroughly now and may decide to end it. Certainly you will have to
change it substantially. The same is true of any other aspect of your life that you have
tolerated but not found very rewarding.
Consciously or unconsciously, you are pruning your life of everything that is not relevant to
what you really are as a human being. If this process is not happening consciously, you may
experience a sense of loss for the elements of your life that are coming to an end now.
However, do not dwell upon these losses, for they are necessary in order to clear the decks
for the major period of action in your life.
This is a time of endings and new beginnings. If you have built your life up to now around
activities that are inappropriate for you, it will be a period of crisis. If you have been
doing what you should in previous years, this influence will simply mark a time of
solidification and the beginning of new phases of activity.
