The report was generated for 6 months starting from May 2013 with the following birth data:

Your sun sign is Libra. This is the sign in which the Sun is in your birth chart. Your
Ascendant is in Taurus, and your Moon is also in Taurus.
Saturn conjunction Mercury: Thinking small
Beginning of November 2012 until mid-August 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.
Saturn conjunction Mars: Acrimonious disputes
Mid-November 2012 until end of August 2013: This is often a time of enormous frustration, when
you really feel as if you are beating your head against a wall. It can also be a time when
you accomplish a great deal of hard work. Which it will be depends on how you handle the
energy of this influence. Its basic meaning is "inhibited energy," but it can also be
"disciplined energy" if you don't try to do too many things over too broad a spectrum.
On the negative side, this influence can produce feelings of intense irritability. The least
little thing seems to set you off, and unfortunately you are often confronted with
considerably more than "little things." People or circumstances seem to get in the way of
whatever you try to do. At work your boss or employer may oppose your ideas without giving
any real reasons. Or he may saddle you with so much work that you don't have time to do
Sometimes you will get involved in the most acrimonious ego disputes with others. It may be
tempting to chalk this up to some kind of plot against you, but that is probably not the case.
It is more likely that - even with the best of intentions - you put out some energy that is
threatening to others. They respond by trying to stop you. Even if you don't mean to be
threatening, you must try very hard not to make people feel threatened.
The problem with this period is that your energies are being curbed. You should take on only
projects that are limited in scope but that require great exertion and concentrated effort
within that scope. If you concentrate your efforts on relatively narrow objectives, you can
make constructive use of this energy. But if you proceed with grandiose and far-reaching
plans, you will probably encounter the worst effects of this influence.
Neptune trine Mars: Painless lessons
Beginning of April 2013 until beginning of February 2015: This is not a good time to strike
out boldly into the world to further your own interests. However, this influence does provide
the opportunity to learn certain very valuable lessons without suffering discouraging defeats.
During this time you will not feel inclined to assert yourself at other people's expense.
Instead you may wish to work to help others without any concern for your own advancement.
This is a good time for any kind of charitable work or for working with poor or otherwise
disadvantaged people. Similarly you may become involved with others in an organization
concerned with mystical or spiritual teaching. Whatever your area of work, the main
consideration is that you work for knowledge and insight and to help others, not for your own
Do not be afraid that your life will lack fulfillment. You will find that ultimately all your
activities for and with others for a common purpose will be fulfilling. We often have an idea
that our own interests are somehow not consistent with those of others. But at this time you
will discover that your needs and desires are identical with other people's. In order to
learn this, you must get away from working solely for yourself. This influence will help you
Related to the above effect is a greater concern with metaphysical and spiritual truth. You
will become increasingly able to understand how you as an individual fit into the entire
universe. Your idea of who you are and what your individuality consists of will expand
Uranus opposition Sun: Security vs. freedom
Beginning of May 2013 until mid-January 2015: 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 or your superiors or employers; 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 system especially.
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 trine Jupiter: An opportunity
From 18 May 2013 until 27 May 2013: 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
Jupiter square Sun: A matter of self-control
Mid-August 2013 until mid-April 2014: This can be an excellent time, but you must watch out
for some pitfalls that could undo all the benefits. Basically this influence is a test of
your discipline and self-restraint. If you are not a restrained person, you will react to
this influence by going overboard in some way, overextending yourself or living in a fool's
paradise where you think nothing can go wrong. Or you might squander a valuable resource,
only to find on another day that you do not have enough of what you need. Sometimes there is
a feeling that luck will provide everything that you need without any effort on your part, but
this, too, is a false notion.
But this time can also provide a chance for real growth and expanded opportunities. It is a
matter of how much control you have over yourself. You have to know precisely where you are
and what your real needs are in order to take the most advantage of this time. You also have
to know when you can't handle anything more. Knowing when to stop is the real trick.
Sometimes this influence encourages ego inflation and excessive pride. Be careful not to act
in an overbearing manner, for you will set people in motion who will try to knock you down a
peg or two. Here too, you must know where to stop.
Under certain conditions this influence can trigger conflict with the law or with someone else
in a court of law. You may or may not lose, but don't act the role of outraged honor and
dignity. Try to find out exactly what the problem is and arrive at a solution that is
satisfactory to all.
