The report was generated for 6 months starting from December 2013 with the following birth
data: male, born on 25 September 1926 at 9:45 am in Düsseldorf, Germany.
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 Taurus.
Neptune trine Ascendant: A spiritual cast
Mid-May 2013 until mid-December 2015: During this time your relationships take on a spiritual
cast, and you are much more inclined to idealize the people you meet. If a lover comes into
your life at this time, the relationship will be so romanticized that it will be in great
danger when you discover that the other person is not as perfect as you thought.
Overidealization in any relationship is a danger to be watched for with this influence.
There is also a strong tendency to get caught up in an ideal philosophy, a spiritualized world
view that is so abstract and removed from the real world that you are neither able nor willing
to function here. You may have a strong desire to escape and withdraw from the world, which
can be useful in some cases. If you are aware of this tendency and know that it is temporary,
you can make positive use of it. There are times when it is important to go off by yourself
and meditate upon the meaning of your life and what you are doing with it. The only problem
is that you probably cannot go off for the whole duration of this influence, because it
usually lasts more than a year. But for part of the time this might be a desirable plan of
A spiritual teacher or guide figure may enter your life at this time, and regardless of his or
her personal merits you are likely to learn something valuable from the encounter. That does
not mean that you should take everything you are told at face value. After this influence has
passed, you will be able to reevaluate what you have learned in the light of your own
intelligence and experience. At this time your ego drives are rather low, which makes you
less interested in questioning what someone tells you. You reflect very strongly on your own
failures and inadequacies, not destructively, but with the aim of improving yourself.
Your relationships are characterized by increased empathy and spiritual understanding of other
people's situations and needs.
Jupiter conjunction Pluto: Self-betterment
Beginning of September 2013 until mid-May 2014: 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
Jupiter sextile Venus: The right moves
Mid-September 2013 until mid-May 2014: This is a very pleasant influence, although you may not
feel it very strongly. But if you know it is coming, you can act in certain advantageous ways
during this period. However, you will have to take the initiative, which you may not want to
do, because one effect of this influence is to make you feel very pleasantly unambitious. It
may be difficult to rouse yourself to action. Therefore this is a good time for a relaxing
vacation or any other kind of good time that doesn't require much energy.
This influence favors relationships, romantic and otherwise, because you are able to project
warmth and friendliness more easily than at other times. You are attracted to other people,
and they are attracted to you. Sometimes this influence can signify the beginning of a major
love relationship. At the very least you feel like flirting and drawing in people who are
If you have to make a good impression on someone, this is the time. You are much more able to
feel the subtle nuances of relationships, which helps you make the right moves. On top of
that, your feelings for other people are sincere, which they recognize and respect.
You will be attracted to pleasant and beautiful surroundings at this time and more than
usually repulsed by ugly and sordid conditions. You may very well feel compelled to do
something about such conditions if you encounter them now.
Financial affairs usually run quite well at this time. Money may come your way unexpectedly
and if so, you will probably be tempted to spend it on something frivolous. Follow your own
Jupiter sextile Mars: Independent initiative
Beginning of October 2013 until beginning of June 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.
Saturn square Jupiter: A current challenge
End of November 2013 until mid-September 2014: During this time your opportunities may be
curtailed and your freedom of action may be quite limited. Restrictions seem to come from
nowhere, and you may have to work very hard just to maintain your accustomed level, let alone
improve it. This period can be quite unfavorable financially, especially if you have not been
very careful in recent years. It tests how well you have put your life together in almost
every area, but especially in matters related to finances and business. You may discover that
many aspects of your life cannot withstand real adversity.
Approximately seven years ago, many new activities began in your life. Now they are being
tested to see whether they have any real importance in your life. Anything that does not
withstand this test should be abandoned or substantially changed. It will be possible to hold
on to something that clearly does not work, in spite of opposition from others and
restrictions from your surroundings. And if you do that, after this time, it may appear to be
working out all right. But that is only because the current challenge is over. However, in
about seven years anything you have clung to will be tested again and will cause far more
trouble than it does now. In other words, if something isn't working now, let it go!
Typically this influence produces extreme restlessness. Your drive for freedom is
relentlessly curbed by the restrictions of this influence, and you feel very strongly that you
must break out of these restrictions. You may experience residence changes or the breakup of
personal relationships that seem to interfere unduly with your freedom. However these changes
are usually just hasty reactions to this influence. You would be much better off to calmly
evaluate what is and isn't working in your life and to consciously eliminate the elements that
do not work. Don't just react blindly because of frustration.
Saturn square MC: An evaluation of goals
Beginning of December 2013 until end of September 2014: This is a challenging time in your
life. You will have to make many choices about what areas of your life to emphasize. Will
you work to make your personal life as satisfying as possible? Will you work collectively with
many other people or by yourself?
Often there is an "alienation crisis" with this influence, a sudden feeling of being cut off
from everyone else, as if you have spent too much energy pursuing purely personal goals. This
in turn generates loneliness and a feeling of being distant from others, even loved ones. Or
you may suddenly feel that you no longer have the strength to go on in the direction you have
chosen. Fears of your own inadequacies may distort your perspective. All of this is most
likely to happen if you have neglected personal relationships in your life. You cannot go on
forever without supportive emotional relationships, and you may have been trying to do so.
Sometimes this influence can have the opposite result, and you discover that various personal
entanglements have been interfering with the pursuit of your valid goals. In this case you
will break off relationships and gain the freedom to go your own way. The issue here is the
balance between personal relationships and advancement in life.
On another tack, this period can test your choice of goals. You may encounter opposition from
others that forces you to examine whether your goals are really valid for you. If they are,
the conflict with other persons or against trying circumstances will be useful. But if you
find that your heart is not really in the path you have chosen, you may have to make
adjustments and change your course of action. It is far better to do this now than several
years from now, when you may be overcommitted to an inappropriate course and discover that you
are trapped. Now is the time to change. It may not be pleasant, but it is possible.
