Saturn conjunction Saturn: Pruning your life
Beginning of January 2016 until end of October 2016: This is one of the most important times
in your life. A major cycle of experience is closing, and great changes are about to take
place. How great these changes are depends largely on what you have been doing with your life
over the past several years. Have you been living as you feel you should or as you think
others want you to? If you have been doing the latter, this influence will have a greater
This influence occurs about every twenty-nine years.
Last year, many aspects of your life have begun to change. Relationships may have changed,
and you may have changed your residence or your job; you have been dominated by an urgent
feeling that if you don't do everything you have always wanted to do, you will never have
another chance. And now, at about you will feel that a substantial portion of your life has
passed and that you had better get on with making it all work. If your relationship is
unsatisfactory but you have been making the best of it, you will examine that relationship
even more thoroughly now and may decide to end it. Certainly you will have to change it
substantially. The same is true of any other aspect of your life that you have tolerated but
not found very rewarding.
Consciously or unconsciously, you are pruning your life of everything that is not relevant to
what you really are as a human being. If this process is not happening consciously, you may
experience a sense of loss for the elements of your life that are coming to an end now.
However, do not dwell upon these losses, for they are necessary in order to clear the decks
for the major period of action in your life.
This is a time of endings and new beginnings. If you have built your life up to now around
activities that are inappropriate for you, it will be a period of crisis. If you have been
doing what you should in previous years, this influence will simply mark a time of
solidification and the beginning of new phases of activity.
Saturn opposition Pluto: Hold on
End of January 2016 until mid-November 2016: This influence can have two opposite effects.
You will experience one or the other or a combination. It represents the culmination of
efforts begun fourteen years ago. This can be the peak of their effectiveness in your
material universe. But it can also be the time when it becomes clear that those efforts did
not succeed. Most commonly you will experience a mixture of these two effects.
On one hand, the corresponding influence fourteen years ago was the beginning of certain efforts to build structures that would allow you to fulfill your ambitions and give you control over your life. At that time you excluded certain areas of activity so you could focus more effectively on the areas you wanted to influence strongly. Now the consequences of those decisions and actions are manifest. You have succeeded in making your energies felt in your world and you have the control you want and need. But you have to work extremely hard, and you have tremendous responsibilities that you cannot let down. In struggling to get to your present position, you may have triggered off opposing forces, possibly enemies, which are waiting to move in when you show signs of slackening. The best thing to do is hold on, maintain your efforts and do everything in your power to conciliate these forces. Make it clear that they have nothing to gain by your defeat and everything to win by your victory. Make yourself indispensable to them.
If this is a time when your expectations are disappointed - that is, if the other side of this influence is manifest - you will feel that something in your surroundings gets in your way every time you try to make a move. As described above, you have aroused opposition from others. But if you have not been successful in reaching your goals, the forces of opposition will be stronger than you are. The best thing to do in this case is to stop resisting, find out what you can salvage from the current crisis, and start moving in new directions. Saturn conjunction Venus: Harsh realizations Beginning of February 2016 until mid-November 2016: This influence will have a strong effect on your relationships with others. Relationships that are solidly based will go through a period of testing and examination during which you and your loved ones and friends will become increasingly concerned about what is valid between you. A weak and unstable relationship will go through the same process, but you are more likely to conclude that it is not worth preserving. Consequently, at this time the relationships that have no purpose or that have outlived their purpose in your life will be cut off. Often you will be reluctant to let go of them. Even in the best of circumstances you are likely to withdraw from others. During this time you have to evaluate who you are, what your individuality consists of and how all of these fit into your relationships with other people, particularly loved ones. You may come to some harsh realizations about your relationships, and even those that you thought were quite good may have to be given up. But you can be sure that any relationship that comes through this period in good shape is very real and important to you. New relationships with a strongly "fated" quality may also come into your life now, which will have very profound significance for you in about fourteen years. This is definitely a time to be conservative in financial matters and not take on any new financial obligations, for you may have trouble meeting your existing ones. On the other hand, this is an excellent time for firming up and organizing the financial structure of your life. In general you should look upon this transit as a time for withdrawing into yourself with respect to others and to material possessions. This withdrawal will enable you to get a clearer idea of what and who you are, so that your future relationships with people and possessions will be more solidly based on reality and therefore more reliable and useful. Jupiter conjunction MC: A highlight From 18 August 2016 until 28 August 2016: This is a period of culmination in which you make a greater effort to get where you want to be. And your efforts appear to produce results more easily than at just about any other time. Therefore you feel better about yourself and your life than at other times, and you feel confident that you can handle anything that comes your way. If you are involved in any kind of business activity, you should be careful not to expand too rapidly or overextend yourself. You might leave yourself vulnerable to the more difficult times that will eventually come. Make sure that all expansion is carefully planned and that you have safeguards against future times of difficulty. Another negative side of this influence will come up if you do not get the recognition that you feel you deserve. If others do not acknowledge you openly, you may feel cheated and go on to assume the station and privilege that you think you deserve. Even if you are recognized, you may act arrogant and smug. Be careful of this, because it creates a negative energy that could lead to your total downfall when this influence is no longer in effect. In general the sphere of your activities will broaden at this time, and you will probably meet new people from unfamiliar parts of the country and even from other parts of the world. They may come into your expanding sphere of action, or you may travel to their worlds. All of this is most likely to happen through your public or social life rather than your personal life. Jupiter sextile Sun: Growth and optimism From 31 August 2016 until 10 September 2016: This is a time when life seems to flow very easily. With little effort, you are able to move in the direction that you intend, and even your ideals seem to be within reach of fulfillment. It is a period of growth, optimism and taking it easy. In many respects this is a good time to sit back and take a long look at how well your life is working out. Because you feel vigorous and energetic, this is an excellent time to advance your interests in almost any area, although that impetus may be lacking. Relationships with others are usually quite good now, and you enjoy being with friends. This influence often indicates good times, as your enthusiasm for life bubbles over and affects everyone around you. This is also a good time for making plans, for you are inclined to "think big," which is a general function of your optimism. While you can overdo this tendency, you will probably be alert to opportunities that you would normally overlook or be afraid to take. You feel generous and tolerant, and not easily bothered when something goes wrong in your world. You recognize that there is plenty of time to correct the problem, so you don't get upset. You aren't annoyed by persons who usually irritate you, and you may even feel like patching up relationships that have gone bad or become difficult. Jupiter trine Pluto: Reform and remake Mid-November 2016 until end of July 2017: Under this influence you will move to make positive changes in your personal and your social world. But the most important question you can ask is, "In whose name do I want to change things?" You should realize that under this influence it is quite easy to exert power and make changes. The energies seem to flow in the direction you want, presenting you with opportunities for taking control in some way. However, you should be motivated by something more than your own personal ambition, even though that will be favored along with any ambition in your life now. But if this power is selfish and personally oriented, you will have trouble later on, and the results will not be lasting. You have to strike a balance and adopt a philosophy of "enlightened self-interest." You must recognize that you benefit most when you can couple your own interests with those of the people you live and work with. In some way you must embody collective interests truly, not merely in your rationalizations. You have a strong desire to reform and remake at this time, and you should be striving to improve conditions all around you, to renew and to serve as a vehicle for regeneration in your world. If you attain personal power in any way at all, use it to clear up and clean out. You may have the chance to lead or influence others, so use that influence to help everyone concerned to grow with you. On the mundane level, this influence can coincide with political power or tremendous gains in personal wealth or resources. On a more humble level, it can give you the chance to straighten out situations in your life that have been sources of trouble for you.
