Neptune conjunction MC: Lost on the way
Beginning of April 2012 until end of January 2014: Very commonly this influence brings sudden
confusion to people who have had a pretty clear idea of what they want to do with their lives.
You may feel as if you have suddenly become lost, although the way had seemed very clear. If
possible, do not make any permanent decisions about your long-term direction during this time.
Among the problems you may encounter is a feeling that what you have been doing is inadequate.
You may feel that your public or social life is too restrictive, that you have to be too
concerned with ordinary mundane reality. You may suddenly be attracted to a wildly romantic,
idealized way of life that seems very plausible to you now, although later it will seem
ridiculous. You may be attracted to working with people in hospitals, charities or other
social-service institutions. This is a perfectly positive direction, but you should examine
your motives for doing this work.
During this period you may also be attracted to mystical and spiritual subjects, especially
philosophies of ego-denial and abandonment such as are taught in many Eastern sects. You may
be particularly attracted to a movement led by a charismatic guru-father figure. Little harm
is likely to come of this, and there may be great benefits, but do not make a permanent
commitment until this period is over.
If feelings of defeat and weariness arise during this transit, do not allow yourself to
succumb to them. You are no worse than what you have always been. You may discover that you
have been excessively concerned about yourself and made yourself too important, but you
shouldn't berate yourself for that. Everyone does it at some time. Meanwhile open yourself
up to the very splendid influences that can come into your life now and teach you much about
the nature of the cosmos. Much of what you learn now will later prove to be of permanent
Neptune trine Pluto: Strange compulsions
Mid-April 2013 until beginning of February 2015: This influence quickens your interest in the
hidden psychological forces that are operating in your life. This can happen in several ways.
First, you may become involved in a group or movement whose purpose is to expand consciousness
- for example, one of the various human-potential groups that are thriving today. You may not
feel satisfied with the way you have managed your life up till now, and you want to understand
and gain greater control of the strange compulsions that everyone experiences from time to
time, often with disastrous results. These compulsions are emotionally based drives that seem
to operate without any bidding from the conscious mind. They often make you behave in ways
that are not appropriate to the situation. Under this influence you will want to change this
aspect of your mind, so this is a good time to begin psychotherapy, if you feel that is the
best course to take.
Another effect of this influence is to create interest in mystical and occult subjects, again
with the aim of increasing your understanding of the universe and of yourself. You are not
interested in power over others, which attracts some people to these subjects, or in mystery
for its own sake. You are interested in learning what the deepest aspects of the universe can
teach you about self-mastery.
If you have already embarked on such a path, you may very well make a significant breakthrough
in your search now. Your soul-life may reach an intensity that you have never felt before,
increasing your understanding with totally unprecedented insights. But this knowledge will
not be abstract - it will transform your life and your ability to experience it.
Jupiter square Sun: A matter of self-control
Mid-September 2013 until mid-May 2014: 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.
Saturn square Mars: Setbacks
End of November 2013 until beginning of September 2014: This can be a time of intense ego
conflicts with others, and you are very likely to be the loser if you are not careful. Your
ambitions in various areas may provoke others to try to stop you because they feel threatened.
Or it may be that you come across people whose goals are intrinsically opposed to yours. This
may happen in any area of your life; most commonly it will affect your public and social life,
but it can also affect your personal and domestic life.
During your first run-ins with others, you will probably be very bitter and antagonistic, but
you will also become cautious about venting your anger. The result is that you will
constantly be in a state of suppressed rage. Then someone who has nothing to do with your
mood may be the victim of a sudden unexpected burst of anger. Needless to say, that is not
the way to win anyone over.
You must not get discouraged by the failures you experience at this time. This period will
not last, and you can consider it a testing time for yourself and your ambitions. There is no
need to assume that your present setbacks are permanent.
Saturn square Uranus: Radical actions
Mid-December 2013 until beginning of October 2014: This can be an extremely upsetting and
tense period, particularly if you have allowed your life to crystallize into rigid patterns
that cannot easily be changed. This is a time of great tension, because your desire for
change and new experiences seems to be thwarted by circumstances or other people. If you have
been putting up with unpleasant conditions in any area of your life, these will become much
more difficult to withstand now. The tensions may become so great that you will unexpectedly
take very radical actions that you would not have anticipated a short while ago.
During this time you face the challenge of creative change without destructive revolution. If
you try to endure the pressure of a situation crying for changes in the face of profound
obstacles, you subject your body to extreme tensions, which is not good for your health,
especially your nerves.
Some people are utterly unconscious of the need for change in their lives. When this
influence hits them, changes start to happen suddenly, which can be quite upsetting and
unpleasant. The changes may even take the form of accidents, which are often an unconscious
and inadvertent release of subconscious tension.
You will have problems with any relationships that seem to be holding you down too much.
Relationships may break up during this time, but not usually those in which both people are
open to new and challenging experiences. This influence is most threatening to structures
that have become routine and rigid.
Authority figures in general seem oppressive and become the focus of negative energy on your
Saturn square Moon: A time of readjustment
Beginning of January 2014 until end of October 2014: This period can be quite a difficult time
for your personal and domestic life. On the psychological level you may feel lonely and
isolated from others. You may feel depressed and undeserving of love. Sometimes remembered
past actions make you feel guilty that you have not lived up to your own expectations.
Externally this influence can create difficulties in personal relationships, especially with
women, because your emotional communication seems to be cut off. The outside world may make
demands that conflict with your domestic responsibilities, so that you are forced to neglect
one or the other. Your parents may also be a source of concern at this time.
The conflict at this time is between the structure of your ego, your sense of individuality
and uniqueness and your need for connections and roots. Somehow it is difficult to be
yourself and do what you must, to maintain your relationships and get much-needed emotional
support and reinforcement from your loved ones.
These elements of your life are not truly in conflict, for they are complementary principles
that need to be properly balanced with each other. The problem is that one element has got
out of control at the expense of the other, so a time of readjustment is at hand. This
situation is the underlying cause of the loneliness and depression that often accompany this
You may have to make important changes in your life priorities. You may have to deemphasize
your public or social life in favor of your emotional and personal life, or you may have to
break off a relationship that has interfered unnecessarily with the demands of the world. In
either case, you must restore the balance between these two aspects of your life so that your
life will run smoothly again.
