Neptune trine Uranus: Enlightening experience
End of May 2013 until end of December 2015: This influence will expose you to ways of looking
at the world that are quite different from any you have known before. The alternate states of
consciousness designated by this influence are not terrifying or confusing. Instead, you are
much more likely to experience a widening interest in the greater depths of the universe and
an increased ability to perceive them. Your intuition will be enormously heightened at this
time, and if you have any innate psychic talents, they will appear now. You will be
increasingly interested in the occult and astrology, and these disciplines will give you
understandings that you have never had before. It is quite likely that you will have an
enlightenment experience - a perception of your true place in the universe - on some level
that is meaningful to you.
Idealism is also part of your life now, but its nature is very abstract. You are much more
interested in philosophical truth and absolutes than in practical reforms in the world around
you. The exception to this is that you could become directly and practically involved with
the plight of the underprivileged. You might work to reform conditions in a hospital or other
Another consequence of this influence is that you may become involved with a religious or
spiritual movement that works for social reform - a movement motivated not by political
Jupiter sextile Mars: Independent initiative
End of August 2013 until beginning of May 2014: This is a time of high energy and independent
initiative. You feel very self-confident and capable of tackling almost anything within
reason. It is a good time to start a project, and most activities that you take up now should
have a successful outcome. However, you must take some positive action in order to get the
most out of this influence. It brings you opportunities, but you have to pick them up.
However, this should not be much of a problem because this influence usually makes you feel
like taking action.
You are unusually clear now about what you intend to do in any situation. Your will is
strong, and you aim at achieving certain very definite goals. You can act decisively and with
conviction. Under an influence like this you can convince other people of your point of view
and get them to follow your lead. In fact, this is an unusually good time for working with
other people because you can get others to identify their interests with yours.
Everything you do is aimed at enlarging your sphere of interests. You do not act out of petty
motives, always having high-minded and high-level goals in mind. Others will respect your
obvious integrity, which will make them more willing to help you.
If you have to go to a court of law at this time, the proceedings should turn out to your
benefit. In fact, the chances are that you will be able to work out a compromise that will be
advantageous to both parties.
Success is likely at this time, because of your excellent sense of timing and your ability to
take advantage of every opportunity that comes along. You should be able to advance yourself
without alienating others. They will recognize that your success is well deserved.
Jupiter square Neptune: False optimism
Mid-September 2013 until end of May 2014: 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 square Pluto: Shedding your skin
End of November 2013 until beginning of September 2014: This can be a difficult time in your
life. Because of circumstances and other people, you find it very difficult to make the
changes you would like to make in the world around you. For example, your ambitions may be
frustrated. People in authority may try to prevent you from accomplishing what you want.
Financially, you will probably have to curb expenses because you simply do not have the
resources. Sometimes the experience of this transit is much like struggling against chains
that hold you down. The temptation is to resist and struggle with all your might.
However, resisting is not the best way to handle this energy, because that would set in motion
destructive powers beyond your control. This influence is sometimes associated with violent
incidents, so take care. The best way to handle it is with some degree of detachment.
Understandably you will be quite upset with some of the obstacles that crop up now, but regard
them as a way of finding out which areas of your life are working and which are not. This
influence usually represents a call to eliminate the unnecessary and superfluous elements in
your life. It requires that you get rid of the dead and useless structures. If you do it
voluntarily, it will be easier.
When this period is over, you will emerge from the crisis considerably tougher than you were.
Conserve your resources, and if you are in financial difficulty, reorganize your life so that
you can get along with less.
Saturn conjunction IC: Treading water
End of December 2013 until mid-October 2014: In this extremely important period of your life,
you must pay very close attention to what you are doing, because you are beginning a new phase
of activity that will have important consequences in the years to come. The difficult aspect
of this time is that the process is very subtle, and it may not be obvious that what you do
now is important.
You have just gone through a period of preparation that probably seemed like treading water,
getting nowhere and accomplishing nothing. Some people may experience the time just before
this influence as exceedingly difficult, with one defeat after another. Others will find it
less difficult, but it will not seem terribly significant.
This is the end of a relatively low period in your life, and from now on you will gradually
climb to the most significant time in your life.
You should be looking to your personal and domestic life, for this is an area of great
responsibility for you now. Do not neglect it in a misguided attempt to get ahead in the
outer world. Make whatever changes are necessary so that this aspect of your life is secure.
Personal relationships may have broken up just before this time. Now you may have the
opportunity to make new ones that will fit your new lifestyle better.
You are on your way up again. The future depends upon the foundation that you lay now.
Pluto trine Mars: Great feats
Beginning of March 2014 until beginning of November 2016: At this time in your life your
energy level is higher than usual, and you are desirous of performing great feats. Often this
influence signifies a time when you will make a tremendous drive for success in any field of
activity that is important to you. You may gain considerable power over others even if you
don't seek it, which will allow you to make many changes in the world around you that you have
not been able to make before.
Even if you do not gain power in any way, you will have more energy to work than at other
times. You will be able to work long, hard and persistently at tasks that would usually tire
you out. Because of your high energy, this influence favors physical activities such as
athletics. Activities that aim to rebuild your body, the muscles in particular, such as
weight-lifting, yoga or another body culture, are especially effective at this time.
This influence also favors any kind of rebuilding, repairing, renovating and restoring, such
as working on old furniture or building.
If you have gone through a period of personal crisis in the last several years that has left
you feeling discouraged about yourself, this influence will go a long way toward rebuilding
your self-confidence. This period represents a new birth of energy and ego-drive that will
enable you to believe in yourself again. In any case you will be able to proceed in your
daily activities with a greater sense of strength and confidence. This is a tremendously
