Saturn square Pluto: Shedding your skin
Mid-November 2012 until end of August 2013: This can be a difficult time in your life.
Because of circumstances and other people, you find it very difficult to make the changes you
would like to make in the world around you. For example, your ambitions may be frustrated.
Poeple in authority may try to prevent you from accomplishing what you want. Financially, you
will probably have to curb expenses because you simply do not have the resources. Sometimes
the experience of this transit is much like struggling against chains that hold you down. The
temptation is to resist and struggle with all your might.
However, resisting is not the best way to handle this energy, because that would set in motion
destructive powers beyond your control. This influence is sometimes associated with violent
incidents, so take care. The best way to handle it is with some degree of detachment.
Understandably you will be quite upset with some of the obstacles that crop up now, but regard
them as a way of finding out which areas of your life are working and which are not. This
influence usually represents a call to eliminate the unnecessary and superfluous elements in
your life. It requires that you get rid of the dead and useless structures. If you do it
voluntarily, it will be easier.
When this period is over, you will emerge from the crisis considerably tougher than you were.
Conserve your resources, and if you are in financial difficulty, reorganize your life so that
you can get along with less.
Saturn square Venus: A sense of tension
Mid-November 2012 until beginning of September 2013: This is a time of considerable tension
and difficulty in your relationships. Love relationships often cool off and may even break up
altogether during this time. You may discover that a love affair wasn't what you thought it
was, a rude awakening after a period of lovely illusions. Or you may suddenly lose interest
in a relationship that had seemed perfectly viable up until now. Of course, the other person
may be the one who leaves you.
Aside from love relationships, there is a sense of tension and a feeling that it is somehow
more difficult to relate to people. You may feel that any sort of relationship exists at the
cost of your freedom and sense of individuality. Relationships seem to be more trouble than
they are worth.
Another effect of this influence may be that "circumstances beyond your control" seem to get
in the way of an existing relationship and force it to break up, even though neither of you
wants this to happen. But this is almost never what is really happening. Usually one of you
has a conscious or unconscious need to withdraw from the relationship, and you subtly maneuver
circumstances to make it break up. Or you may be testing the relationship to see how much it
can take. A good one will survive and be stronger.
Every relationship must be an honest expression of yourself. But we often get into
relationships that have little to do with our true selves, usually because of fear, a need for
security, or a sense of personal inadequacy. Relationships sometimes simply outlive their
time, and these are the ones that will suffer and perhaps die now. They are at cross purposes
to your pursuit of life and self-expression.
Loneliness is a problem at this time, because your need for relationships and your need to be
yourself are equally great. Instead of working harmoniously, as they should, they are in
conflict. But consciously or unconsciously, the need to be yourself is the greater at this
Uranus opposition Moon: Behavior patterns
Beginning of April 2013 until beginning of March 2014: This influence can signify sudden
events in your personal and emotional life and sudden changes in your home. The pressure of
circumstances will reveal your unconscious emotional patterns, and you will learn to handle
your life with fewer habits and inappropriate unconscious behavior patterns. You may be upset
by these changes, but you should recognize that this influence can free you from
characteristics that you don't need.
This influence has to do with patterns of behavior that were created in infancy, which may
have been appropriate then but are not now. For example, it was once appropriate for you to
seek nurturing and protection from your mother, and you did what you had to in order to get
that. But as an adult your life should no longer follow that pattern. This influence raises
the need for you to be an independent, self-sufficient adult, to relate to others as an equal,
even though you may not feel ready. But most people retain some infantile behavior patterns,
which create patterns in adult life, particularly in relations with others, that make further
growth difficult. You may still seek out relationships in which you have the same emotional
dependency you had toward your mother. Your emotional reactions to people are only habits
that interfere with communication. Or you may play a parental role toward someone else who
really needs to be independent. This influence breaks up such relationships and makes it
impossible for you to behave according to old patterns, which you will be forced to reexamine.
Intimate personal relationships may be disturbed, because this is the area where infantile and
childish behavior patterns usually surface.
Once you accept the fact that the old patterns are no longer appropriate, and you are willing
to either make changes or accept the ones that have occurred, you will begin to feel
liberated. You are freed from chains you have forged for yourself. You will approach life
with a greater sense of freedom and a heightened ability to experience it as it is now, not as
it was when you were a child.
Jupiter opposition Sun: A turning point
From 12 May 2013 until 21 May 2013: This can be and usually is a very positive time. But you
can make more or less out of it, depending upon how you handle it. In most ways it represents
a period of culmination in your life, and you will be tempted to expand beyond any reasonable
limit. There is no question that you have a good chance for success in any one of a number of
endeavors at this time and, within reason, you should pursue them. However, you should not
restrict yourself solely to material and physical growth now. Even if you don't have all the
material goods that you want, you should turn your attention to spiritual and inner needs.
Ultimately, nothing satisfies like satisfaction. Objects that you acquire, possessions,
money, and even social prestige are merely devices to make you feel that you have
satisfaction. They are not the state of satisfaction itself. It is your inner difficulties
that make your life less than it could be, even if you have corresponding problems in the
material world. You must look for the solutions within yourself, and this time represents a
turning point, where you should begin to look for the answers.
Under this influence, the tendency is to go after everything that you want in the material
world without caring especially about whoever is in your way, to gather as much stuff as you
can and indulge yourself in what you want. Then, as the influence subsides, you may feel that
this effort has failed, leaving your life as empty as it was before.
Do not be arrogant toward others or assume that you have everything right. Through meaningful
encounters with others, especially intimate one-to-one encounters, you can find out which way
you should go at this time. Work with another person and think in terms of mutual growth. By
trying to achieve goals set by both of you and by trying to be a twosome, you each will become
more conscious of what you are as an individual. If you can recognize the real meaning of
this influence in terms of your own life, this can be an extremely productive and growth-
oriented time, a period that will always have meaning for you.
Jupiter square Moon: Magnanimity
Beginning of August 2013 until end of March 2014: This is usually a very favorable influence.
It gives your emotions a great deal of power, so that you feel them much more emphatically and
are more in touch with them. At the same time you want to establish empathetic relationships
with others, to hear their problems, to help out and play a protective role toward them if
possible. This influence may make you feel very sentimental about and attached to your
surroundings and to familiar objects. Your past is very important to you now, and if there
are events in your past that you find uncomfortable, they are likely to come up. There is
often a need to confront the unconscious areas of the psyche during this time, but you should
regard this as an opportunity to be healed of the wounds made by these energies from the past.
In emotional relationships, this influence can create a tension between your desire to be
close to someone and the desire to be free. Be careful to give your loved ones the same
freedom that you want, and do not try to be unfairly possessive of them. Also, confrontations
with the unconscious aspects of yourself mentioned above can affect relationships adversely
during this time. In such cases it is necessary to cultivate a sense of detachment and not
become so wrapped up in your emotions that you cannot see beyond them.
This influence gives an enormous concern with social and individual justice. You are easily
outraged when you see someone getting the short end of the stick, but your emotionalism may
make it difficult to see a good solution to the problem. Try to avoid feeling self-righteous
and intolerant. You will need to have a very open and generous point of view in order to
clear up any conflicts that occur at this time, and emotionalism masquerading as righteousness
will not accomplish anything useful. Instead, take advantage of the ample positive side of
this energy by helping those who need it. Protect the people you can protect and succor those
who have been hurt. Magnanimity is just as much in accordance with the meaning of this
influence as are extreme emotionalism and self-righteousness.
Jupiter square Ascendant: On the lookout
End of August 2013 until end of April 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 public life.
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.
