Jupiter square Sun: A matter of self-control
End of September 2014 until beginning of June 2015: This can be an excellent time, but you
must watch out for some pitfalls that could undo all the benefits. Basically this influence
is a test of your discipline and self-restraint. If you are not a restrained person, you will
react to this influence by going overboard in some way, overextending yourself or living in a
fool's paradise where you think nothing can go wrong. Or you might squander a valuable
resource, only to find on another day that you do not have enough of what you need. Sometimes
there is a feeling that luck will provide everything that you need without any effort on your
part, but this, too, is a false notion.
But this time can also provide a chance for real growth and expanded opportunities. It is a
matter of how much control you have over yourself. You have to know precisely where you are
and what your real needs are in order to take the most advantage of this time. You also have
to know when you can't handle anything more. Knowing when to stop is the real trick.
Sometimes this influence encourages ego inflation and excessive pride. Be careful not to act
in an overbearing manner, for you will set people in motion who will try to knock you down a
peg or two. Here too, you must know where to stop.
Under certain conditions this influence can trigger conflict with the law or with someone else
in a court of law. You may or may not lose, but don't act the role of outraged honor and
dignity. Try to find out exactly what the problem is and arrive at a solution that is
satisfactory to all.
Jupiter trine Venus: Pleasantly lazy
Mid-October 2014 until end of June 2015: You feel very light-hearted and sociable now and want
to spend as much time as possible with others. This is a good time for taking a vacation,
attending social gatherings, or participating in other forms of amusement and fun. It is not
conducive to any kind of serious effort, because you are inclined to feel pleasantly lazy and
unenterprising. There is also a very strong self-indulgent streak to this influence. Be very
careful not to eat or drink too much.
Fortunately you have the ability to make others feel good if they are unhappy or depressed,
and as a result, people enjoy being around you at this time. You may have the chance to do
favors for others that will eventually be returned. And since you feel generous and giving,
you will not mind doing them.
In some instances this influence has a way of drawing money or other material resources to
you. But don't sit around planning how to spend a sudden windfall from heaven, as many people
do with this influence. It is a possibility, but only one among many and not the most likely.
Actually it is more likely that you will spend money on objects that you consider beautiful.
Others may not appreciate your taste at this time, however, because it tends toward the flashy
or gaudy. Be careful that you don't get stuck with something that will offend your own taste
in a soberer moment.
You have a great desire for beauty, however, and if your taste is sound you will surround
yourself with objects that you can enjoy for years and that will also gain in value.
Jupiter square Mercury: Big plans
Mid-November 2014 until mid-July 2015: 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 trine Saturn: Inner stability
End of December 2014 until mid-October 2015: At this time you can incorporate into yourself
the fruits of previous successes, look them over and appreciate them for what they were. The
key idea is that you are in a position to understand your life and therefore better able to be
in conscious control of it. This is not merely an intellectual understanding, it is born of
experience. You have lived through certain things, and now you can proceed on the basis of
Your public and social life will run smoothly at this time. Relationships, which reflect what
you are, are also more stable at this time because of your own inner stability.
Your outlook on life has also reached a point of equilibrium. You have a good understanding
of how you look at life, and it works well enough that you may not question it very much. The
problem is that this is not a time of testing, so you don't know how well your ideas will
stand up to future crisis. You only know how well they withstood past tests. But the future
is always different, and what happens in the future depends upon what is true at that time.
Therefore you must keep your mind open and flexible. You only know what you know, and that is
not everything. Continue to examine yourself and see what could be improved. Even if your
life is satisfactory now, it may not always be.
Saturn conjunction Mars: Acrimonious disputes
Beginning of January 2015 until end of October 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.
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
duties 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.
Uranus conjunction Venus: Less routine
Mid-May 2015 until beginning of January 2017: The effects of this influence are often quite
spectacular. You are likely to seek new freedom and excitement through your relationships.
You may even decide to break away from an old, steady marriage or other relationship and seek
a second youth through a new affair. But this is an extreme response which is by no means
inevitable, especially if your current relationship is basically sound. It is more likely
that you will change your existing relationships, sexual and otherwise, so that they are more
interesting and less routine. Every relationship, no matter how good, settles into behavior
patterns that kill spontaneity and make you both feel that you have little to offer each
other. In other words, you get bored. You can count on this influence to change the
The means by which you revive and renew a relationship will vary according to your temperament. If a relationship is quite unsatisfactory and you are naturally impulsive, you may respond in the "classic" manner by seeking a new love affair. If you are more conservative and also happier in an existing relationship, you will go through a period of tension that will lead you to reexamine the relationship and make necessary changes. If you are living with your partner and having problems now, a relationship counselor might be helpful. You need new ideas to enliven your relationship, which an outsider might be able to provide. Some couples create new arrangements under this influence, such as an open relationship, in which they allow relationships outside of their own. In this regard you must do what is appropriate for the two of you.
If you are not in a permanent relationship, you may become involved in a relationship that is completely different from anything you have experienced before. However, in this case, you should be aware that the excitement and newness of such a relationship may be a large factor in making it work, and when it becomes older and more routine it might not last.
If you are involved in an artistic activity, you will brim over with new ideas. This can be a very creative influence, although you may have to wait until it is over to integrate what you have learned into your regular techniques.
