The report was generated for 6 months starting from April 2015 with the following birth data:
male, born on 8 October 1965 at 6:37 am in Palo Alto, California.
Your sun sign is Libra. This is the sign in which the Sun is in your birth chart. Your
Ascendant is also in Libra, and your Moon is in Pisces.
Neptune trine MC: Feet on the ground
Beginning of May 2014 until beginning of December 2016: Under this influence you are likely to
deemphasize practical and material concerns in favor of spiritual understanding and truth.
And this can be a very positive thing, so long as you do not completely ignore the affairs of
the material world. You must remain connected with the practical world but keep it from
overwhelming your consciousness.
During this time you become more involved in service to others, perhaps on a personal level by
taking care of someone who is close to you or perhaps through an institution, where you help
take care of the poor or disadvantaged. You may have to take care of a sick friend or loved
On the other hand, you may change to a field of work in which social service is the goal.
Welfare or social work and nursing - particularly psychiatric nursing - are appropriate to
this influence. What happens is that you identify your personal gratification with service to
the larger social order. Personal reward or personal recognition for your efforts are not
important to you now, and you may be quite content to work behind the scenes.
On the negative side, your own ego drives are usually not very strong under this influence,
which is why you are able to engage in the kinds of work described above. But this means that
you may not stand up for your own valid interests or take adequate care of your own world.
Sometimes personal relationships suffer at times like this because you don't consider them
important enough. You think that they are only gratifying to you personally and are therefore
If that is the case, you are forgetting that you must take care of your personal needs, not
merely to gratify your ego, but also to make you a healthy and happy human being. Only if you
are happy and healthy can you be really effective. One cannot live on self-sacrifice forever,
and if you try, you are likely to become a depressing and joyless person. Those who are most
effective in helping society are also able to enjoy themselves.
Jupiter square Neptune: False optimism
Beginning of October 2014 until mid-June 2015: At this time you will work very hard to
actualize your ideals and find a concrete way to put your spiritual views into practice in the
real world. But you can expect the real world to put up some resistance to your ideas. Among
other things, you will be challenged to demonstrate that your ideals are not just irrelevant,
impractical abstractions. You will also have to demonstrate that your views are based on
realism rather than some dream world, which is where you may very well be now. At any rate,
this time will give you the opportunity to find out.
You will give readily when called upon now, because this influence signifies a great
generosity to people who are less fortunate than yourself. But you may not be very discreet
in choosing the people on whom you lavish your charity. Some people can be helped, and it
would be worthwhile to spend your time on them. But others are not worth wasting time on,
although with this influence you may not be able to tell the difference.
On another level, this influence can signify the kind of false optimism that makes you take
foolish risks, especially with limited resources. In any financial dealings be very careful
that everything is exactly as represented to you by others. Otherwise you could be taken for
This time is a test of your grasp of reality and your ability to translate ideals into
practice. There is no reason to assume that you will not pass the test, but you do have to be
Religious or spiritual delusions are another danger of this influence. You may be tempted to
run after false messiahs or teachers whose ability to dazzle with spiritual phrases exceeds
their ability to teach you how to cope with your life.
Saturn conjunction Venus: Harsh realizations
Beginning of December 2014 until mid-September 2015: 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
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
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.
Saturn conjunction Mars: Acrimonious disputes
Mid-January 2015 until beginning of November 2015: This is often a time of enormous
frustration, when you really feel as if you are beating your head against a wall. It can also
be a time when you accomplish a great deal of hard work. Which it will be depends on how you
handle the energy of this influence. Its basic meaning is "inhibited energy," but it can also
be "disciplined energy" if you don't try to do too many things over too broad a spectrum.
On the negative side, this influence can produce feelings of intense irritability. The least
little thing seems to set you off, and unfortunately you are often confronted with
considerably more than "little things." People or circumstances seem to get in the way of
whatever you try to do. At work your boss or employer may oppose your ideas without giving
any real reasons. Or he may saddle you with so much work that you don't have time to do
Sometimes you will get involved in the most acrimonious ego disputes with others. It may be
tempting to chalk this up to some kind of plot against you, but that is probably not the case.
It is more likely that - even with the best of intentions - you put out some energy that is
threatening to others. They respond by trying to stop you. Even if you don't mean to be
threatening, you must try very hard not to make people feel threatened.
The problem with this period is that your energies are being curbed. You should take on only
projects that are limited in scope but that require great exertion and concentrated effort
within that scope. If you concentrate your efforts on relatively narrow objectives, you can
make constructive use of this energy. But if you proceed with grandiose and far-reaching
plans, you will probably encounter the worst effects of this influence.
Pluto square Sun: Power struggles
End of January 2015 until beginning of December 2016: This time is a test of your strength and
the energy with which you have established yourself in your world. The test may take many
forms, but in any form it will require that your sense of personhood be in reasonably good
shape; in other words, you should know who and what you are. If you do not really know
yourself, this time is likely to bring about crises that will cause major changes in your
One form that it may take is a test of your self-control as you try to get ahead in the world.
This influence stimulates your ambition and desire for power out of all proportion. If there
is a ruthless side to your personality that will do anything to destroy opposition, it will
come out now. But, at the same time, forces in your world will try very hard to stop you. To
overcome the forces arrayed against you, you will require extreme ruthlessness. On the other
hand, you may know precisely what you need to succeed and go after just that, being willing to
compromise and make your success also the success of others. This is the proper course to
take, but unfortunately this kind of accommodating spirit is not often found.
If you are of a more retiring disposition, you may experience this time quite differently.
Instead of being the person on a power trip, you may have to contend with someone else who is.
Here again you must determine exactly your rights and needs as an individual and stand up for
them. The problem here is not that you will overstep your bounds but that someone else will.
But you must fight or at least resist. Either of these power struggles is most likely to
occur in your profession, quite possibly with someone in authority.
This energy may also surface in the outer expression of your life. You may be surrounded by
conditions of breakdown and decay, which are an outward sign of the need to rebuild within.
Under extreme conditions, this influence can release its energy in a single explosive burst as
an injury or physical assault. Certainly you should avoid conflicts with others that may lead
to physical fighting, because the energies here are quite dangerous.
Jupiter sextile Jupiter: In good working order
From 12 August 2015 until 21 August 2015: This is a time of balance and equilibrium in your
life, when all your affairs seem to run smoothly and without much effort on your part. It is
a time when you can relax and take it easy for a while, knowing that your life is in good
working order. This is also a time when growth seems to occur without much effort - growth in
consciousness, in your profession, in your social life or wherever you feel that personal
growth is important.
But this is not really a time when you should just enjoy yourself. You should do that, to be
sure, but you should also be examining your life to see what needs to be done. It is
important to think this way now because the equilibrium that is characteristic of this period
enables you to look about yourself with reasonable calm and detachment. It is much harder to
achieve a perspective when you are in the middle of some major and possibly chaotic change.
This is a good time to achieve perspective in all possible senses of the word. It is a good
time for education, either formal or informal, for getting in touch with yourself through
self-awareness studies, or for seeing the larger world through travel.
Business transactions or negotiations are also favored now, and this is a good time to expand
your business, as long as it is within reason. Legal affairs also usually run quite smoothly.
