The report was generated for 6 months starting from December 2013 with the following birth
data: male, born on 7 October 1927 at 5:15 pm in Glasgow, Scotland.
Your sun sign is Libra. This is the sign in which the Sun is in your birth chart. Your
Ascendant is in Pisces, and your Moon is in Aquarius.
Neptune trine Mercury: Intellect and intuition
End of April 2013 until mid-February 2015: This is one of the most imaginative periods of your
life in a positive way. Your mind will be able to create with unusual facility, but you will
still be able to distinguish between reality and the products of your imagination. If you
have ever wanted to write prose or poetry, this is the time to try, although success in this
area requires some indication of writing ability in the birth chart.
This influence signifies one of the few times in life when the rational intellect and the
intuitive and feeling functions are able to work as a team. For most people these two areas
of the mind usually operate at cross-purposes. But now they can cooperate, which is what
makes this such a fertile time.
Fortunately, the intuitive sensitivity stimulated by this influence extends to your
relationships with others. You understand what people are thinking with much less verbal
communication than usual, almost as if you can look into their minds and see what is happening
there. Consequently your efforts to communicate with others will be much more effective now.
Others will understand and appreciate the fact that you understand them.
You are likely to take an intellectual interest in metaphysical and spiritual subjects at this
time, and your innate psychic abilities may be manifested. But your approach to these
subjects is a bit different from most people's. You demand that spiritual matters make sense
to you intellectually as well as intuitively. You want to know, not merely to believe. But
your newly intuitive sensibility tells you that there are limits to understanding through
rational intellect. Your understanding of almost any subject is greatly heightened by this
If you are involved in any kind of teaching, this influence will be an invaluable aid. You
will be able to communicate what you know in such a way that others really understand the
subject and also your experience of it.
Uranus opposition Sun: Security vs. freedom
Beginning of July 2013 until beginning of March 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 system especially.
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
Jupiter square Sun: A matter of self-control
End of August 2013 until end of April 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.
Jupiter conjunction Pluto: Self-betterment
Mid-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 square Mars: Insight and skill
Mid-September 2013 until end of May 2014: This influence gives you a great deal of confidence
and makes you feel very self-assertive. Usually this is all right, but some people will
express this energy by becoming arrogant and domineering. Also be wary of overconfidence,
resulting in attempts to do things that are simply beyond you.
Intemperance in almost any activity could completely undo the basically positive nature of
this influence. Avoid exaggeration and try to maintain some sense of proportion. If you can
do all of this, you will be able to get more work done than usual, and you will do it well.
You will be able to accomplish things that you are usually afraid to tackle because you feel
inadequate, and you can take the initiative when you would otherwise wait for others to take
With care and planning and adequate restraint, this influence is a general sign of fortunately
timed action that takes advantage of the proper moment and makes the most of it. And this is
not luck on your part, but insight and skill. All of this requires preparation, however,
because impulsive actions at this time are not likely to be very effective.
It may be particularly important to placate persons in authority. If you act precipitately,
they may become alarmed and think of you as a threat, whether or not you intend to be. Of
course, if you do consciously intend to be a threat, this influence could be a help, assuming
again that you have planned carefully. But if you are not conscious of your intentions, you
may experience opposition from others without ever quite understanding why.
Pluto square Sun: Power struggles
Beginning of February 2014 until mid-December 2015: 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
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.
