data: male, born on 12 May 1928 at 1:15 am in Kansas City, Missouri.

Ascendant is in Aquarius, and your Moon is also in Aquarius.
Neptune square MC: Apparent defeats
End of April 2013 until mid-February 2015: This time in your life is likely to be confusing
and full of doubt and fear, if you are not very secure about your life direction. You will
ask fundamental questions about what you are trying to do with your life as a whole. And if
you, like many people, are not living for yourself and your own objectives, you will probably
conclude that what you are doing is worthless and pointless. Even at best you will question
your planned course.
In dealing with others, you may find it difficult to stand up for your own position because
you are questioning it so much yourself. You may allow yourself to become the victim of other
people, simply because you lack the confidence to fight back. But a far worse effect of this
influence is that you might get into a routine of making yourself seem to be victim in order
to gain others' sympathy. It is difficult to take responsibility when you are feeling
insecure. For this same reason there is a strong temptation to avoid direct confrontations
with others for fear that you cannot stand up to them. Therefore you may try to get what you
want from people in covert or subversive ways, usually involving some kind of dishonesty.
Needless to say, this will only worsen your insecurity, not give you more confidence.
But all of the above concerns the worst side of this influence, which does have something
positive to teach you. Even as you suffer apparent defeats, you may discover that what you
are losing is not really anything significant. You may learn that the needs of your ego are
not your real needs at all. Under this influence some persons find a capacity for selfless
action and spiritual self-denial that makes it impossible for them ever to lose in a way that
hurts them. In that case you will learn that there is really nothing to lose. This influence
can be the gateway to a very highly evolved spiritual understanding, and it is quite likely
that you will become increasingly involved with spiritual teachings and disciplines. However,
it is possible to go off the deep end spiritually, and this influence may very well delude you
into doing so. But in the long run this is one of its less dangerous traps.
Jupiter conjunction Pluto: Self-betterment
Beginning of September 2013 until beginning of May 2014: This influence brings the urge to
achieve to the forefront of your life. You will make great, even extraordinary, efforts to
gain success as you personally define it. You work harder and strive to gain your objective
with every ounce of energy at your disposal. Consequently, this influence often occurs just
at the moment when some tremendous effort in your life bears fruit.
Sometimes there is a tremendous drive to gain power, and this influence can bring you power
even when you are not trying especially hard to get it. Remember that each person has
opportunities for a different kind of power. It may be great or relatively humble in terms of
the larger society, but it will be meaningful to you.
This power drive is sufficiently strong that it is difficult to deny, even if it has
absolutely no outlet. In that case you are likely to get into some kind of conflict with
authorities, even to the extent of arrest. If your ambition becomes the irresistible force
against an immovable society, you will probably be the loser. Therefore you must scan your
life to find areas where you can let this energy manifest itself. Surely in some area of your
life you can better yourself and achieve something that would bring you recognition and
respect. This is true no matter how depressed you think you are or how downtrodden your
circumstances. If you put all your energy into working on that, it is quite likely that you
will accomplish what you want.
The dominant drive of this influence is self-betterment, but each individual has to define
that term for himself. You can work in that direction now, and how well you succeed depends
largely on what you mean by betterment. Unfortunately, for some people it means simply money
or power. If you are one of them, throughout this period you will act as if obsessed, and
indeed, power can become a fanatical preoccupation. Other people may become obsessed by an
idea, usually concerning righteousness or morality. This also carries the danger that you
will lose track of all normal human values and try to live with a distorted set of standards
Saturn square Ascendant: Appropriate relationships
Beginning of December 2013 until end of September 2014: This influence signifies a time of
severe testing in your relationships with others. The demands of the outer world or the
demands of your personal life will force you to reevaluate which relationships in your life
are worth keeping and which are not. If you do not face this challenge consciously, the
pressure of events will force you to do so, because people who have been with you for a long
time will leave against your wishes.
There is often a strong tendency to build a wall between you and others without even realizing
it. The only way you will know is that suddenly you will feel alone and out of touch with
everybody. You may feel that you have no support from others, even loved ones whom you have
counted on in the past for love and support. This may represent a temporary state of affairs
or a passing mood. Or it may represent a serious breakdown in your relationships because of
misplaced priorities in the past or because of associating with people who were wrong for you
in terms of your personal goals and needs.
In the case of misplaced priorities, perhaps you have paid more attention to getting ahead in
life than to giving and receiving love. Or perhaps in the past, fear of your own inadequacies
or fear that you are unlovable has made you withdraw from others. Now the consequences of
these problems are emerging, causing you to feel alone.
In the second case, the problem is that in terms of your direction in life, the people you
associate with are a distraction or are actually opposed to your interests. In this case, no
matter how much you love them, walls will form between you and them, and you will have to
begin a new life without them.
With this influence several significant relationships will inevitably end. But if you have a
clear idea of where you are going, this will not be a great disadvantage. Whatever remorse
you feel will be quickly displaced by a new sense of freedom, because you are no longer
wasting energy in trying to maintain inappropriate relationships.
Saturn opposition Sun: Low energies
End of December 2013 until mid-October 2014: This may be a very discouraging time. Your vital
energies are pretty low, and you may feel quite incapable of dealing with the adversities that
often accompany this influence.
These adversities may come from a number of sources. First of all, other people, particularly
persons in authority, may oppose your plans in several areas. This is not usually a good time
for successfully attaining your goals.
You may feel physically tired, as if the burdens of your life are too much for you. Quite
commonly during this time people feel old, and there is a profound sense of world-weariness.
Be careful of your health and conserve your energies.
Your ambitions may also be thwarted by circumstances or by other people. Even though you and
your associates have the best intentions for your future, something seems to block you.
It is possible that you may be caught in some kind of relationship, for example, a bad
marriage or love affair, that limits your self-expression. Quite frequently this influence
brings such relationships to an end.
This period is best dealt with by understanding that it is part of a natural cycle in your
life. Nothing is gained by fighting it; instead you must learn to flow with it. This
influence represents a period of endings which will be followed by new beginnings. The
problem is to avoid being discouraged and frustrated by the endings. Soon you will have the
opportunity to begin new projects that will build up to new peaks of achievement in about
Uranus sextile Moon: A fresh breeze
Mid-April 2014 until mid-March 2015: This influence stimulates your emotional life. You will
experience your own feelings and allow yourself to look at the world subjectively. Your own
inner feelings and your attitudes toward the world will seem as important as whatever you
consider to be true or real in the external world. At this time you feel what you want to
This effect manifests itself in a variety of ways. First of all, you will demand more
emotional satisfaction in your relationships. It will not be enough for a relationship simply
to go on as it has. If your existing friendships and love relationships do not meet your
needs, you will find new ones that do. Your goal is freedom of emotional self-expression and
Another manifestation of this influence is that you are likely to make changes in your home
environment, demanding that it too be more emotionally satisfying. At this time it is not
enough that your house is adequate to keep out the rain. You want it to be as interesting and
stimulating as any other aspect of your life.
As your ability to experience your inner life is stimulated, your imagination will also be
stimulated. You will see how you can make your life more interesting in areas that you had
never considered before. Also the intellectual and emotional functions of your mind are more
unified now. This is an extremely good time for creative work, not because it directly
stimulates creativity, but because it makes you see and feel from new perspectives, which
gives your creative work a new freshness and innovative quality.
Uranus square Pluto: Scoop!
Beginning of May 2014 until beginning of April 2015: The effect of this influence is to sweep
away all the old and outworn structures that you have built up and to create a total
revolution in your life.
Your life is probably circumscribed by many elements from the past that no longer serve any
useful purpose in your life. You have not got rid of them because they represent a certain
security, but they are getting in the way of your continued growth and therefore must be
cleared away from your life. The events that occur now will force this change upon you, if
you have not already begun to change voluntarily.
This influence does not operate suddenly, but with deep psychological forces that operate very
slowly over a long period of time. They keep you moving and growing, make you throw off the
old and enter new ways of living. This influence represents a time when these forces have
built up to a critical point and must be released.
It is not possible to say exactly what will pass away from your life at this time, because it
will be different for everyone. But you will have a sense that a powerful force is emerging
in your life that you have been dimly aware of for some time. If you look into yourself, you
will realize that what is happening now is not really a surprise. You were hoping that this
new force would go away if you ignored it, but it didn't, and now you have to deal with it.
Because this influence affects a whole generation, the drastic changes you encounter now may
be partly the result of social and economic forces beyond your control. You may even feel
like an unfortunate puppet moved by historical events. But these forces, even though they
appear to be impersonal, play a vital role in your individual development. Accept this as a
challenge to you as an individual, and allow the old order and old ideas to pass away. This
will pave the way for your rebirth into a new way of life, where you will have the opportunity
to be more alive.
