Neptune conjunction Descendant: Beware of "experts" End of April 2016 until mid-February 2018: At this time your close, intimate relationships will be difficult and confused. Also you should be very careful about consulting others for advice now, even professionals such as lawyers, marriage counselors or doctors. Of course, not all of these people will give you erroneous information even under this influence, but you would be well advised not to suspend your own critical faculties just because someone else seems to be an "expert." A marriage or other partnership will be difficult because communications are unclear now. Perhaps either you or your partner is trying to conceal something from the other. If so, you should stop concealing it as soon as possible, for it can only undermine the confidence you must have in each other. Even if you are concealing something for the other's "own good," your partner will not see it that way, and her confidence will still be undermined. However, you may not be hiding anything. It may just be that communications between you are getting worse. Make sure that you really understand each other, and do not assume that you understand or that anything you say or do is understood automatically. Spontaneous and immediate understanding is not a feature of this influence. Avoid legal confrontations at this time, if at all possible. Completely unexpected events are likely to happen, which you won't be prepared for. And your opponent may use underhanded tactics that could hurt your position badly. In general your enemies, if you have any, will be very deceptive during this time. It will be very hard to understand their tactics, let alone deal with them. They may even make false overtures of friendliness to you. Do not treat everyone with suspicion, but don't take everything at face value either.
Saturn sextile Neptune: Heavy-hearted Mid-February 2017 until end of November 2017: During this time you are able to achieve a most unusual balance between your material and your spiritual needs, and you see the relationship between them so that you can build your life upon both of them equally. This influence helps you bring your spiritual ideals into focus in the material world so that you can see precisely what role they play in your life. Consequently this is a time of sober reflection and deep understanding about your life on several planes. This is a time of serious thought. Your mood will not be especially light-hearted, but you will be in a position to make great breakthroughs in understanding. You will be able to deny yourself rewards that you have wanted in the past, because now you can see that if you wait a bit, your daily life will come closer to your ideals. You are in the right frame of mind for disciplined self-denial and sacrifice without being a martyr. In other words, you are realistic about what you are doing. Now you can work to further your ideals, such as working for religious or charitable organizations, spiritual groups or whatever. In general you will be attracted to groups of people who share your views, and you will be able to express your philosophy better in a group than by yourself. This influence has the effect of making your ego subservient to higher needs, so that if you believe strongly in what you are doing, you will be able to work hard even if given very little credit or positive reinforcement. With this influence there is the danger of taking your own actions too seriously. This can be a very covert form of egotism in the name of spiritual awareness and devotion, and no form of egotism, even if it goes by another name, is compatible with this influence.
Saturn trine Pluto: Extremely useful Mid-February 2017 until beginning of December 2017: This influence gives you the ability to see deeply into yourself and find out what creative forces are at work. At the same time it lets you take advantage of that understanding and make use of it in your daily life. You are able to move forward to fulfill your ambitions. You can work harder now than at almost any other time in your life, because your energies operate in a controlled and almost relentless manner. You will be greatly concerned with your innermost self at this time. Therefore it is a good time to undergo psychotherapy or some other consciousness-raising technique, if you feel that it would benefit you. Disciplines involving self-understanding and regeneration, such as yoga or meditation, are particularly effective under this influence. You will be able to advance in certain areas of life because you can work harder and more effectively and because others are impressed by your effectiveness. You assert yourself in such a way that others realize that you are not to be trifled with. They take you and your efforts seriously. Nevertheless the energies of this influence are not likely to arouse great opposition. Others are willing to work with you, because they feel that you can get the job done. The effects of this influence are subtle but not weak. Do not look for specific events now, for the strongest effects are on the psychological level. You will simply notice that you are more effective and can make a greater impact. This can be an extremely useful influence.
Saturn opposition Moon: An emotional trial Beginning of March 2017 until mid-December 2017: This is one of the most emotionally trying influences. It is frequently associated with domestic or professional problems, emotional depression, loneliness, difficulties with women or difficulties with personal relationships, often leading to breakups. This influence represents an "alienation crisis," that is, a crisis brought about by the discovery that you have been neglecting your emotional and psychological needs. As a result you feel alone and disconnected from others, like an alien in the world whom no one else can ever adequately understand. To a greater or lesser extent, everyone's life revolves around an overall task or purpose that makes one's life unique. The purpose may be a job, motherhood, fatherhood, some movement that you believe in or anything else that gives you a sense of purpose. Often an alienation crisis occurs when you discover that you have gone too far too fast in pursuit of your life purpose and have neglected your psychological and emotional needs. Perhaps you have neglected your relationships or your domestic life, or you have repressed your feelings. In this way you build up a wall between yourself and others, which makes you feel alone and alienated. You must make your personal life and your public role or other central purpose work together. That will require changing your lifestyle so that you can pay equal attention to both.
Neptune trine Saturn: Future necessities Mid-March 2017 until beginning of January 2019: During this period there is a balance between idealism and reality in your life, which enables you to work very hard in the most thorough and practical manner to actualize your ideals. You understand exactly what is true for you, and you are able to work within that structure to make changes. Your attitude toward the world is not pessimistic. Because of your vast experience, you have come to know what you need and what you don't need. You are reluctant to saddle yourself with possessions that may be pleasant to own but that complicate your life. Others may think of you as rather abstemious and self-denying, but you don't deny yourself anything you really need; it is just that now you have a clearer idea of your future necessities. This is an extremely good time to become involved in psychic, spiritual and occult studies. Your sense of reality is strong enough now to withstand the disorienting shock that many people receive when they begin to study these subjects, and it won't get in the way of your understanding. Under this influence your spiritual development is measured and disciplined. You may feel that work is the best path toward understanding. No matter what your situation demands, you can make the necessary sacrifices now. You can work very hard in the pursuit of an ideal or be very self-denying in order to accomplish a task. But again, you are not really denying yourself - you simply have a very well-developed sense of priorities, which you follow carefully. Others will feel that they can depend on you, because you do not seem to get upset by problems that make most people feel lost and disoriented. No matter how confused the situation, you can see and work with the underlying pattern. Because of this ability, you have a capacity for creative organization now that you may have lacked at other times.
Uranus square Uranus: On a pivot End of May 2017 until mid-January 2019: This influence signifies the changes that take place as you approach old age. There is often a crisis associated with this period, when you suddenly realize that you are getting old. Roughly twenty-one years ago you confronted a crisis of reorientation. At that time you should have turned your attention toward your inner values, those that were important to you alone. If you handled that time properly, this period will not be especially upsetting. Your life as an individual will have enough richness that you will know how to handle the years ahead. A common problem for people approaching retirement is that they have no idea what to do with their coming leisure time. All they know is their work, and when that ends, their life effectively ends. This is the crisis presented by this influence. You must realize that the richness of your life does not come only from your achievements in the outer world of business and society, but also from what you know and understand about life.
