The report was generated for 6 months starting from December 2013 with the following birth
data: male, born on 7 January 1948 at 1:20 pm in Everett, Washington.
Your sun sign is Capricorn. This is the sign in which the Sun is in your birth chart. Your
Ascendant is in Gemini, and your Moon is in Sagittarius.
Uranus opposition Neptune: Higher dimensions
Mid-June 2013 until mid-February 2015: How you will react to this influence will depend upon
how well you have learned certain of life's lessons. If you are extremely materialistic and
so caught up in the mundane concerns of daily life that you cannot see or conceive of anything
higher - whether it be a religion, a system of ideals or whatever - you will experience this
time as extremely confusing. Events will occur that simply do not fit into your scheme, and
you will become confused and perhaps act in ways that you consider very unwise. You may
suddenly start chasing after wild and impractical dreams, become involved with persons who are
very out of touch with reality and generally get your goals thoroughly scrambled.
All of this arises because this influence exposes you to higher dimensions of existence, to a
world that doesn't work like the one you have been taught to see. Nevertheless this higher
world is real and important, in that it gives life meaning even though seemingly far removed
from it. If you have always frowned on idealistic notions of higher metaphysical dimensions,
this influence will confuse and upset you, because it reveals these dimensions to you. But if
you have learned that the universe does not stop with what you can see and feel with your
senses, this influence will allow you to experience profound revelations and understanding.
Your degree of enlightenment or confusion depends entirely upon how well prepared you are.
Jupiter square Neptune: False optimism
End of August 2013 until end of April 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.
Jupiter opposition Sun: A turning point
Beginning of September 2013 until mid-May 2014: This can be and usually is a very positive
time. But you can make more or less out of it, depending upon how you handle it. In most
ways it represents a period of culmination in your life, and you will be tempted to expand
beyond any reasonable limit. There is no question that you have a good chance for success in
any one of a number of endeavors at this time and, within reason, you should pursue them.
However, you should not restrict yourself solely to material and physical growth now. Even if
you don't have all the material goods that you want, you should turn your attention to
spiritual and inner needs. Ultimately, nothing satisfies like satisfaction. Objects that you
acquire, possessions, money, and even social prestige are merely devices to make you feel that
you have satisfaction. They are not the state of satisfaction itself. It is your inner
difficulties that make your life less than it could be, even if you have corresponding
problems in the material world. You must look for the solutions within yourself, and this
time represents a turning point, where you should begin to look for the answers.
Under this influence, the tendency is to go after everything that you want in the material
world without caring especially about whoever is in your way, to gather as much stuff as you
can and indulge yourself in what you want. Then, as the influence subsides, you may feel that
this effort has failed, leaving your life as empty as it was before.
Do not be arrogant toward others or assume that you have everything right. Through meaningful
encounters with others, especially intimate one-to-one encounters, you can find out which way
you should go at this time. Work with another person and think in terms of mutual growth. By
trying to achieve goals set by both of you and by trying to be a twosome, you each will become
more conscious of what you are as an individual. If you can recognize the real meaning of
this influence in terms of your own life, this can be an extremely productive and growth-
oriented time, a period that will always have meaning for you.
Jupiter opposition Mercury: Mind the details
End of September 2013 until end of May 2014: This is a time of very big plans and the
culmination of many ideas that you have had in the past. It is possible now to make your
ideas become reality, as long as you avoid certain pitfalls. In this case the primary problem
is to avoid thinking too big or attempting something that is totally grandiose and
If you can keep track of all of the details that go into a well-thought-out business deal,
this is an excellent time to sign contracts or to conclude any kind of commercial transaction,
but it is very important not to overlook any details that might affect the outcome. This
influence enables you to see the overall patterns in anything and to plan with foresight and
wisdom. But if you are not careful, it can also lead to sloppy thinking or planning. It is
best to work with someone else who can check over your work or plans and call your attention
to anything that you have overlooked.
Projects or plans that began up to six years ago may come to fruition now, but only if you
have been careful about details as described above. At any rate, events now will make it
clear whether these ideas were based on reality or on pipe dreams. Work out everything in
detail and leave as little as possible to chance; this will help you immensely.
Although recognizing the truth of any matter is important to you now, you must deal with
others tactfully. There is a danger of alienating people by being self-righteous or arrogant
in telling them about your ideas. It is extremely important that the breadth of vision
conferred by this influence be accompanied by tolerance and generosity. Usually it is, but
sometimes people react in the negative way just described.
The pace of events may become rather fast moving for you at this time, and that is another
reason why you must plan everything very thoroughly. You could get confused, not because the
situation is undefined or vague but because the scale of events is too large for you to grasp.
But this shouldn't happen if you have worked everything out in advance.
Saturn square Venus: A sense of tension
End of November 2013 until beginning of September 2014: This is a time of considerable tension
and difficulty in your relationships. Love relationships often cool off and may even break up
altogether during this time. You may discover that a love affair wasn't what you thought it
was, a rude awakening after a period of lovely illusions. Or you may suddenly lose interest
in a relationship that had seemed perfectly viable up until now. Of course, the other person
may be the one who leaves you.
Aside from love relationships, there is a sense of tension and a feeling that it is somehow
more difficult to relate to people. You may feel that any sort of relationship exists at the
cost of your freedom and sense of individuality. Relationships seem to be more trouble than
they are worth.
Another effect of this influence may be that "circumstances beyond your control" seem to get
in the way of an existing relationship and force it to break up, even though neither of you
wants this to happen. But this is almost never what is really happening. Usually one of you
has a conscious or unconscious need to withdraw from the relationship, and you subtly maneuver
circumstances to make it break up. Or you may be testing the relationship to see how much it
can take. A good one will survive and be stronger.
Every relationship must be an honest expression of yourself. But we often get into
relationships that have little to do with our true selves, usually because of fear, a need for
security, or a sense of personal inadequacy. Relationships sometimes simply outlive their
time, and these are the ones that will suffer and perhaps die now. They are at cross purposes
to your pursuit of life and self-expression.
Loneliness is a problem at this time, because your need for relationships and your need to be
yourself are equally great. Instead of working harmoniously, as they should, they are in
conflict. But consciously or unconsciously, the need to be yourself is the greater at this
Saturn sextile Mercury: Exacting standards
Beginning of December 2013 until end of September 2014: At this time your thinking has settled
into stable patterns, and not very much is changing in your mind. But you have discipline and
concentration, which enable you to get a great deal of work done. You have a clear idea of
what you want to achieve intellectually, and you are willing to work for it. This is an
excellent time for any long-range planning that requires great attention to details. It is
not so good for the kind of planning that requires you to see the larger scope all at once and
handle it as a single system. This influence favors any kind of activity involving
organization and restructuring. It is excellent for most business transactions, especially
those requiring carefully thought-out plans for development. It is not so good for risky or
speculative investments, because your level of intuition is lower than normal. It is also a
good time for serious study and difficult mental work.
Your views about the world have reached a point of stability, so you act from a consistent
position. You believe that you understand what the world is about and you operate on that
basis. Obviously this can create some problems. If your mental patterns become too fixed,
you close out viewpoints and opinions that will help you grow. Narrow-mindedness is a danger
with this influence. You can either organize your knowledge into its most useful form, or you
can cut yourself off from knowledge through intellectual rigidity.
This influence sharpens your critical faculties. Your standards are very exacting, and you
are likely to judge everything by them. Consequently you are very quick to see exactly what
is wrong in any situation. But here again there is the danger that critical thinking may
become an excuse for nit-picking and narrow-mindedness. You can too easily learn to see the
flaws in everything before you see the strengths, which makes your world seem a great deal
more imperfect than it is.
