Ascendant is in Pisces, and your Moon is in Aquarius.
Saturn conjunction Neptune: Involuntary detachment
Mid-November 2012 until end of August 2013: During this time you may have to contend with
negative moods that can be quite upsetting. This influence often results in confusion, self-
doubt, uncertainty and a general tendency to look at life from the worst possible point of
view. At its worst, it can make you completely uncertain about what is real in your life,
resulting in a sense of fear and free-floating anxiety. However, it is important to remember
that this influence usually makes things appear worse than they actually are.
Your confidence and sense of well-being are at a low at this time, and you should not take
your own gloomy evaluations too seriously. You seem to be aware of only those facets of life
that you are afraid of and totally unaware of those things that can comfort and reinforce you.
Strange as it may seem, there is a constructive side to this period, although most people
usually experience the negative side. But if you are very well attuned to your inner needs
and secure enough not to be led astray by illusions, even fearful ones, then this influence
can give you the ability to make extraordinary self-sacrifices. One effect of this period is
to detach you from the material universe. In that case you may become disoriented and afraid,
as described already, or you may find that the demands of the material universe no longer
concern you particularly, and you can sacrifice your material needs to spiritual needs.
Either way, your perception of reality at this time is quite different from what it normally
is, which you should take into consideration when making any plans for the future.
Neptune opposition Pluto: Please wait
Beginning of April 2013 until beginning of February 2015: This influence signifies encounters
that cause various aspects of your life to be transformed. Most commonly, this transformation
will take the form of disappearances of persons, circumstances or even possessions that you
have become used to. You will also encounter forces that try to reveal aspects of your life
that you have long kept hidden from yourself. Initially you will probably resist these
revelations, believing that they cannot teach you anything very constructive. An influence
like this often reveals aspects of ourselves that we have been taught to consider evil or at
least negative. These aspects are often a source of positive energy, but because we refuse to
acknowledge them, that energy is wasted and is usually out of our control. There will be much
psychological compulsiveness at this time, but the less you resist facing yourself, the less
difficulty you will have.
On another level you will be shown a spiritual dimension of your existence that can immensely
broaden your life and experience, if you are willing to look at it. This dimension may seem
so far beyond your ordinary life that you will consider it impossible to accept, but this
knowledge is necessary for your growth.
On a practical level, avoid taking at face value any new encounters with persons or
circumstances. Even when persons are not trying to deceive you, they may do so
unintentionally, because you won't immediately understand what they are really showing you.
Until you have arrived at this level of understanding, simply adopt a waiting attitude and
commit yourself to as little as possible.
Jupiter trine Sun: A sense of humor
A transit approaching its end, 28 April 2013, remaining 7 May 2013: This is such a pleasant
influence that you may be inclined to sit back, enjoy it and do nothing. However, this is
really a very important time in your life because you can reach out into new areas of life and
have new and rewarding experiences. Your creative potential is enormous at this time, and you
can very easily accomplish a great deal that would be difficult at other times. Your inner
energies are strong, and you are full of self-confidence and the feeling that you can do
This influence usually indicates good health and a feeling of well-being, although you may be
inclined to put on weight if you are not careful. You may not feel inclined toward physical
activity, but it would be a good idea to get some exercise. Make a particular effort to be
outdoors. Hiking is a very beneficial activity at this time.
If you are inclined to physical activity, especially athletics, don't take foolish risks
through overconfidence. This influence tends to make you overestimate your energies.
This is an excellent time for all financial matters. You will feel like making your
surroundings appear more elegant, and you may spend quite a lot of money doing so. This is
perfectly fine, and you should think positively in all ways, but don't let this concern with
material acquisition blind you to some very real possibilities for inner growth.
Travel, either physically or mentally, often accompanies this influence. Take this time to
broaden your understanding of the world around you. You have a strong interest in ideas that
are different from what you normally know and encounter, and you are much more tolerant of
different ways of living. Even people's usually irritating traits do not bother you at this
time. Also your sense of humor is much greater than usual, and you can appreciate the dance
of life in all its glory.
Neptune trine Neptune: Sowing time
Beginning of May 2013 until mid-February 2015: This influence is a chance to examine your life
and to see within it the seeds for something greater than you have imagined. This greatness
is not in the material realm, nor will it give you power over others. Instead your
opportunity is to see your life in a spiritual dimension that you have never before perceived.
This can manifest itself in a number of ways.
First of all, you may discover an increased empathy for the people in your everyday life. You
can put yourself into another's place in a way that you have never been able to do before; you
can see and, more importantly, feel what someone else feels. Consequently you will have more
sympathy and compassion for other people's problems.
Your compassion springs from a realization of the essential unity of yourself and all being.
For most people, this is not an entirely conscious realization. You may feel an increased
involvement with others, but you don't quite know where it has come from. On the other hand,
this can be a conscious feeling, in which case you may become more attracted to mystical
philosophies and metaphysics, which try to verbalize what you are beginning to experience.
You may experience a reawakened interest in religion, even if this has long been dormant in
your life. Possibly you may even have a profound psychic or mystical experience.
Even if by temperament you are not inclined to mysticism, you will experience its effects as
increased idealism and an increased willingness to work for the kind of world you want to see.
Whatever else may happen, you will feel more capable of selfless actions in your relationships
with others. You will be willing to help, seeking little or nothing in return because your
own ego seems less important to you now.
Neptune opposition Venus: Obscure problems
Beginning of May 2013 until beginning of December 2015: During this time, love relationships,
especially, may cause problems because either you or your partner has an unrealistic attitude
about the relationship. Disillusionment and disappointment are the likely result when the
romantic cloud lifts and the truth about the relationship becomes clear. All of us idealize a
new lover to a certain extent, for that is part of the normal process of falling in love. But
this influence indicates that the problem can be much more severe because of your
unwillingness to accept reality as it is. You are inclined to look for partners and
relationships that can help you escape from the humdrum, everyday world into a magical world
of fantasy and beautiful illusions. But unfortunately you must pick your partner from the
human race, and the people who can truly fulfill this kind of dream are extremely rare. So
you create a beautiful image in your imagination and pretend that a specific person fits the
image. And you are likely to persist, even though everyone can see, even you if you open your
eyes, that your loved one is not what you fantasize. This is the most extreme manifestation
of this influence, and it is not an uncommon reaction.
This influence can create other kinds of relationship difficulties as well, such as obscure
problems within an existing relationship. For example, you may find it difficult to
communicate with your partner, or one of you may do something behind the other's back, thus
undermining your mutual confidence.
The most useful effect of this influence is that it stimulates the creative imagination. In
fact, every illusion or delusion is really only a misuse of creative imagination or a
confusion of imagination with truth. If you can keep truth and imagination separate you will
derive great benefit from this period, especially if you are intrinsically creative. Artistic
creativity is heightened by this influence, and even your relationships can be more
interesting, if you don't lose sight of their real nature.
Jupiter square Ascendant: On the lookout
From 13 May 2013 until 22 May 2013: This is usually an excellent time for most kinds of
relationships, but there are some pitfalls. Basically this influence signifies a desire to
grow and advance through contacts with others. Probably you are willing to give as much as
you get, although in some people this influence triggers a desire for advantages through
others without giving anything in return. In fact as they get ahead, such people act
arrogantly toward everyone, even those who helped them. This causes others to reject them,
and when they hit hard times there is no one to help them out.
But this result is totally unnecessary, and all you have to do to avoid it is to keep a sense
of humility and recognize what others have done for you. With this influence you have the
potential to become a truly better person, but only if you keep these warnings in mind.
Quite frequently this influence brings a seemingly "lucky" chance through a friend or
associate. But it is not luck so much as the fact that you are very sharply on the lookout
for opportunities that can benefit you. Your sense of timing is very acute, and your
sensitivity to others and their needs is greater than usual. That is one reason why it is so
bad to ignore others' needs, because you don't even have the excuse of ignorance.
Benefits can come to you in either your personal and domestic life or in your work. There may
be an opportunity to make money or to make improvements in your home that will make it much
more pleasant. Or you may meet people who will help you learn more about the world and expand
your view of it in various ways. You have to be willing to let this happen, however, which
means you must be receptive. This is another area in which being arrogant brings the risk
that you will get nothing of lasting value out of this period.
