The report was generated for 6 months starting from October 2014 with the following birth
data: male, born on 5 October 1950 at 10:05 am in New York, New York.
Your sun sign is Libra. This is the sign in which the Sun is in your birth chart. Your
Ascendant is in Scorpio, and your Moon is in Cancer.
Pluto square Sun: Power struggles
Mid-February 2013 until end of December 2014: 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 life.
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 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.
Uranus opposition Sun: Security vs. freedom
Mid-May 2013 until mid-January 2015: During this time you should look for sudden changes in
your environment that challenge your expression as an individual and force you to take a stand
about what you really are. A sudden challenge in the outer world may force you to take more
responsibility for your life. Typical effects of this influence would include sudden events
concerning men; unexpected circumstances that force you to change your course of action;
sudden changes in a relationship, especially if you have not allowed self-expression for
yourself or your partner; and sudden changes in health, involving your heart and circulatory
By this time you have built up a lifestyle that you consider valid and practically realizable.
Most adults by now have given up certain ideals and goals as impossible. You have probably
surrendered large parts of yourself as an accommodation with reality. The suppressed energies
from this source lie behind the manifestation of this influence. It demands that hidden
pressures be released, but you will probably feel that these events are happening to you
rather than that you are doing them. What is happening is the passing away of something that
has prevented you from being free. The trouble is that most people come to value security and
predictability over freedom of self-expression. Consequently this influence is frequently
Neptune square Mars: Framed
Mid-March 2014 until mid-January 2016: This influence affects your sense of who you are and
challenges the validity of the life course you have set for yourself, as well as your image of
yourself as an effective person.
Under this influence you may get involved in situations from which you will emerge as a loser.
Or someone else may set you up in such a way that you are forced to act without knowing what
is really going on, and therefore you act ineffectively. Since you are not likely to get much
reinforcement from others at this time, you will be forced to rely on your own inner resources
and self-confidence. Do not expect others to provide you with backbone; you need to provide
Be careful not to get involved with any dubious schemes, and make sure that any project you do
get into is real. Certainly avoid anything you know to be corrupt or dishonest, for you will
probably lose out and lose face as well.
Defeats may make you feel discouraged. But don't take them too seriously. Like all
influences, this one will pass. And there is a lesson to be learned here. The more you
identify with what you do rather than what you are, the more difficulties this influence will
cause. You are not what you do. This influence may force you to confront that issue, and if
it does, you will learn to handle your life much more successfully because you will not always
have to protect yourself.
Another danger during this time is that you may become wrapped up in fighting for some
terribly idealistic cause that has little chance of succeeding or of giving you any real
satisfaction. All that you can count on is that you will be required to surrender your
individuality for a "higher purpose," which usually turns out to be someone else's ego.
Jupiter sextile Neptune: Easy come, easy go
Beginning of October 2014 until beginning of June 2015: This is a time when you are
particularly concerned with fulfilling your ideals in life, and you will formulate your
eventual goals in very idealistic terms. Also you are less concerned with the negative
aspects of life at this time and better able to appreciate its positive aspects. Just be sure
that you don't adopt a "Pollyanna" attitude toward the real problems of your life.
You don't feel that satisfying your own needs is as urgent as usual now. In general you want
to help others who are less fortunate than yourself. Helping others gives you a great sense
of personal fulfillment that outweighs any personal sacrifice you may have to make. For this
reason you may become involved in working with charities or other institutions that aid the
During this time your religious, philosophical and spiritual concerns are often great. You
have a strong drive to experience the higher aspects of existence, but this need may not be
satisfied by orthodox religions, so you may become involved in one of the mystical or
spiritual groups that flourish now. Or you may encounter an individual who can reveal
something of this aspect of the universe to you. In fact, the nature of this influence is
such that you will probably gain spiritual insight from those parts of your everyday world
that you take for granted.
On another level entirely, this influence can often signify a desire to gamble. Money that
you receive now can best be described as "easy come, easy go." But the danger here is that you
may invest or gamble on the basis of inflated expectations or a false belief that nothing can
go wrong for you. Unfortunately this is not true, so be as careful as you usually are.
Jupiter conjunction Pluto: Self-betterment
Mid-October 2014 until end of June 2015: This influence brings the urge to achieve to the
forefront of your life. You will make great, even extraordinary, efforts to gain success as
you personally define it. You work harder and strive to gain your objective with every ounce
of energy at your disposal. Consequently, this influence often occurs just at the moment when
some tremendous effort in your life bears fruit.
Sometimes there is a tremendous drive to gain power, and this influence can bring you power
even when you are not trying especially hard to get it. Remember that each person has
opportunities for a different kind of power. It may be great or relatively humble in terms of
the larger society, but it will be meaningful to you.
This power drive is sufficiently strong that it is difficult to deny, even if it has
absolutely no outlet. In that case you are likely to get into some kind of conflict with
authorities, even to the extent of arrest. If your ambition becomes the irresistible force
against an immovable society, you will probably be the loser. Therefore you must scan your
life to find areas where you can let this energy manifest itself. Surely in some area of your
life you can better yourself and achieve something that would bring you recognition and
respect. This is true no matter how depressed you think you are or how downtrodden your
circumstances. If you put all your energy into working on that, it is quite likely that you
will accomplish what you want.
The dominant drive of this influence is self-betterment, but each individual has to define
that term for himself. You can work in that direction now, and how well you succeed depends
largely on what you mean by betterment. Unfortunately, for some people it means simply money
or power. If you are one of them, throughout this period you will act as if obsessed, and
indeed, power can become a fanatical preoccupation. Other people may become obsessed by an
idea, usually concerning righteousness or morality. This also carries the danger that you
will lose track of all normal human values and try to live with a distorted set of standards
Saturn sextile Saturn: Limited warranty
From 3 November 2014 until 20 November 2014: This is a time of equilibrium and balance in your
life, because now you have a pretty good idea of how to handle your own world. Events will
run along more or less easily during this time. But it is important to note that it will not
necessarily be an especially happy or peaceful time. Our lives are directed by our own
demands much more than we realize, but very often those demands are unconscious. We would
often be horrified if we knew what we are really trying to do. We try to protect ourselves
and what we feel belongs to us from "threats" that often are not real threats according to
adult criteria. Yet we structure our world according to them. This influence only guarantees
that you will be successful in patterning your world. If you are very unhappy at this time,
you had best get in touch with what you are really doing.
This can be a time when you are successfully approaching your main conscious goals in life.
Or it can be a time when you are being run largely by unconscious "programs," as if you were a
computer. Usually you will experience a little of both of these effects. However, in the
long run the positive possibilities are more useful to know about. Concerning the negative
side of this influence, suffice it to say that the difficult and unsatisfactory aspects of
your life that you are experiencing now require you to look into yourself more closely.
At this time you are particularly good at working with other people. You are able to see your
individuality and differentness in a way that makes it possible for you to work with others in
a complementary way so that neither you nor they feel competitive. You can work just as well
with people who are above you and with those at your own level.
You approach your own goals methodically and practically, for you are not particularly
idealistic at this point. You are much more concerned about how to achieve what you want in
concrete practical terms. Use this time well, for it gives you the opportunity to lay a
foundation that will protect you in the future.
