Neptune square Neptune: Self-scrutiny
Mid-April 2012 until beginning of February 2014: This transit is often a part of the "crisis
of middle age," since it occurs when you are about forty-two. During this period you are
likely to intensely question your life, your goals and how far you have fulfilled your ideals.
Depending upon the results of that evaluation, you may begin to make certain changes. The
problem is that this is not the best influence for making well-thought-out changes in your
life. There is a great danger that you will go off half-cocked in pursuit of some dream that
is unrealizable and not even worth realizing. It is very important to use this period for
self-scrutiny, but it is not a good idea to act yet.
If you act too quickly, you will only create severe disturbances in your emotional and
domestic life or in your work. You are likely to operate on the basis of partially formed
ideas about yourself and your needs. Unfortunately, since you are in your forties, you have
probably convinced yourself that you know who and what you are. And perhaps you have known,
but the function of this influence is to make you reevaluate who you are, which at this moment
you do not know. The best solution is to recognize this situation and simply allow yourself
to see the truth, whatever it may be. Give yourself plenty of latitude and have whatever
experiences seem necessary. Just don't make any permanent commitments during this time. You
don't want to spend the rest of your life with the consequences of ill-considered actions
taken under the influence of a passing delusion.
Many of the insights you receive during this period will be real, and many will not be real.
Only the passage of time will allow you to determine which are which.
Saturn conjunction Mercury: Thinking small
Mid-November 2012 until beginning of September 2013: This is a time of serious, heavy, even
pessimistic thinking. Communication with others becomes more significant, but also more
difficult. In fact this influence often means saying goodbye. You take life more seriously
than usual and look at things more seriously, but you run the risk of losing your sense of
Your mental and intellectual viewpoint is narrowed by this influence. You are likely to
concern yourself with a smaller range of ideas, but you are more likely to think about them
thoroughly. You are beginning a major new cycle of ideas and opinions, of communicating in
new ways. This consumes your mental energy and limits your ability to range over a large
number of topics. Also you root out old ideas and notions that have outlived their usefulness
in your life. Your mind is very disciplined, but with this discipline and narrowing of focus
there is the danger of thinking too narrowly. You may overlook important alternatives because
of your tendency to concentrate single-mindedly at this time. Also, with your tendency toward
depressed thoughts you may overlook possibilities that seem too idealistic or risky; probably
they are not at all - it is just that you are thinking "small."
Nevertheless this is an excellent time for working a single idea through completely, planning
very carefully and realizing ideas that can have important consequences many years from now.
When dealing with yourself and others, be careful that you do not become too concerned with an
unattainable perfection. One effect of the this influence can be to make you too exacting and
critical, with the result that you alienate others.
Jupiter trine Sun: A sense of humor
From 10 May 2013 until 19 May 2013: This is such a pleasant influence that you may be inclined
to sit back, enjoy it and do nothing. However, this is really a very important time in your
life because you can reach out into new areas of life and have new and rewarding experiences.
Your creative potential is enormous at this time, and you can very easily accomplish a great
deal that would be difficult at other times. Your inner energies are strong, and you are full
of self-confidence and the feeling that you can do anything.
This influence usually indicates good health and a feeling of well-being, although you may be
inclined to put on weight if you are not careful. You may not feel inclined toward physical
activity, but it would be a good idea to get some exercise. Make a particular effort to be
outdoors. Hiking is a very beneficial activity at this time.
If you are inclined to physical activity, especially athletics, don't take foolish risks
through overconfidence. This influence tends to make you overestimate your energies.
This is an excellent time for all financial matters. You will feel like making your
surroundings appear more elegant, and you may spend quite a lot of money doing so. This is
perfectly fine, and you should think positively in all ways, but don't let this concern with
material acquisition blind you to some very real possibilities for inner growth.
Travel, either physically or mentally, often accompanies this influence. Take this time to
broaden your understanding of the world around you. You have a strong interest in ideas that
are different from what you normally know and encounter, and you are much more tolerant of
different ways of living. Even people's usually irritating traits do not bother you at this
time. Also your sense of humor is much greater than usual, and you can appreciate the dance
of life in all its glory.
Jupiter opposition Moon: The first move
From 15 June 2013 until 24 June 2013: This is a time when feelings and emotions play an
important part in your life, and relationships based on feelings and emotions become very
important. This influence is usually experienced positively as warm feelings within yourself
and from others. You feel emotionally very generous and giving. Relationships are usually
quite good and rewarding now, and those that you have been building up for years may begin to
produce results. You can now decide clearly which ones are worthwhile and which are not.
But there is a negative side to this influence also. It can make you feel very self-indulgent
and undisciplined. You may feel that the world "owes me a living," whether or not you really
deserve it. It may also make you feel that others ought to be breaking their back to help
you. In personal relationships, you may become very demanding without really offering
anything to your partner in return. Instead of reaching out to make things happen in your
life, you wait for others to make the first move and become quite angry when people insist
that you take some initiative.
Your love relationships and relations with women can be either very good or very bad, probably
not anywhere in the middle. It all depends upon your general reaction to this influence. If
you are demanding in the manner described above, then your relationships will be bad. But if
this influence arouses your feelings of warmth and generosity, they will be quite good. And
this is a good way of gauging where you are with this influence, because encounters with
others, especially women, will bring out its effects.
Jupiter opposition Jupiter: A little care and restraint
From 1 July 2013 until 10 July 2013: Under this influence you are likely to feel quite good,
with enough confidence to handle just about anything. It is a period in your life when you
feel optimistic and as though you can do whatever you want. However, you may be somewhat
overconfident, so be careful not to take on more than you can handle.
At this point, several time-consuming projects may be coming to a head at once. This could be
either quite advantageous or quite difficult, depending upon how well you have estimated your
capacities in the past. What is happening now may be more than you can deal with, so you may
have to cut back a bit.
This can also be a time of restlessness, for you feel that your everyday world is simply not
"big" enough or does not provide enough experience for you. If you feel this way, you need to
enlarge your scope of activity somewhat, but again be careful not to overreach.
You may have given others the impression that you are overambitious or that you want too much
(in their terms, at least), and they may try to prevent you from getting any further. If this
happens, all you can do is confront them directly and try to reassure them that you are not
after their position (unless, of course, you are). Because of this possibility, you must be
However, none of this is necessary. With a little care and restraint, you can convert this
into an excellent time that will produce considerable good, especially in financial matters.
This influence can make you either extremely extravagant or extremely successful in such
matters, depending upon your natural bent.
Jupiter conjunction Descendant: Mutual growth
End of September 2013 until end of May 2014: During this period you seek to grow in various
ways through your closest contacts with other people. You try to create relationships that
will further your life, not in a spirit of selfishness, but in a desire for mutual growth.
Often at this time a person will come into your life who offers to help you out in some way,
usually through a partnership.
In business, for example, this is an extremely good time to enter into a partnership or a
contract with someone. In your personal life, you will work more closely than usual with
someone, which will work out very well for you both. If other indications are compatible, you
may meet someone who will be important to you romantically, but that is not the usual result
of this influence.
This is also an excellent time to seek out someone for counseling, especially a lawyer, but
also any other kind of counselor. Related to this, incidentally, is that if you have a case
in court at this time, it will work out as you want it to.
A marriage or intimate relationship should work better than usual now. You and your partner
will be anxious to help each other grow and to further each other's interests in all possible
ways. You do not want to restrict your partner or be restricted by her in any possible way.
Because you understand the need for freedom of individual self-expression within your
relationship, you will try to find ways to bring that about. If your relationship is not
working out very well in general, this influence can have either of two effects. It can
either bring a time of healing in the relationship so that it ceases to be such a problem, or
it can make your desire for freedom so strong that you break off the relationship altogether.
At any rate, the problems themselves will cease. And a relationship that does break up under
this influence (this only applies to one that is on the rocks) will do so relatively amicably.
