Jupiter square Mercury: Big plans
End of October 2015 until beginning of July 2016: This influence signifies increased mental
activity and a desire to communicate to others something that you consider important. Whether
or not your message is important, you probably think it is, so you should take the time to see
if that is true. There is no point in loading people up with your ideas and opinions unless
they are worth something. And when you speak to others at this time it is vital that you
listen to their response. For although you have big ideas and plans, there is a tendency now
to overlook details. You may be unwilling to listen to criticism, but if you listen and heed
what you are told, this can be an excellent time for making decisions, planning, negotiating
and concluding deals or agreements. But this will happen only if you listen to others'
This is usually a time of optimism and positive feelings. You have confidence in your ideas
and are able to get them across. Communications of all kinds are important to you; for
example, you may conceivably do some writing at this time.
It is also important not to overextend yourself. Make sure that your plans are no larger than
your ability to cope with them. Sometimes with this influence the pace can get pretty hectic,
because you have to handle many different affairs at once. This is when sloppy thinking can
become especially dangerous.
During this period you may encounter resistance to your ideas and opinions from a number of
sources. It is a good time to examine your ideas and see how well they really hold up in an
argument. It is a good time to change any views that do not hold up because you can easily
enlarge your viewpoint under this influence. You feel no need to be petty or quarrelsome, but
you do feel compelled to defend the ideas that are important to you. Any truly important
beliefs will hold up during this confrontation and become more a part of your basic mental
pattern than ever.
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. Uranus sextile Neptune: Unorthodox studies End of May 2016 until beginning of February 2018: This influence stimulates your interest in spiritual ideals and occult concerns. You will discover that your usual way of viewing the universe does not provide satisfactory explanations, so you will turn toward concepts that provide better explanations, even though they are not consistent with what you have been taught. Ideas that you have always regarded as impossibly idealistic become more important, and you work harder to make them part of real life. During this time many people become very much concerned with occult philosophy, metaphysics, spiritualism and mysticism. You have a great need to see the universe as a whole and to understand your relationship to it. However, orthodox religions and philosophies will not fulfill your needs at this time, so you turn to less orthodox studies. The overall effect of this influence is to open your mind to entirely new levels of consciousness. But this happens through sudden insights into your experience of the everyday world. It is not necessary to travel to some exotic foreign place in order to experience this. Some people go through a kind of enlightenment during this time, whether through a positive drug experience or through a spontaneous event in their own consciousness. As your consciousness evolves, you will begin to associate with others whose views are similar, so that you can reinforce and strengthen each others' insights. In this way you may get involved with organized groups that work to further occult and metaphysical studies. Whatever else happens now, your ideals will be transformed, as will your aims and objectives. After this period you will not be content to follow the same goals; the old ones simply won't have any meaning for you any longer. 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.
