Ascendant is in Scorpio, and your Moon is in Sagittarius.
Pluto square Sun: Power struggles
Beginning of February 2013 until mid-December 2014: 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.
Saturn conjunction Ascendant: Following through
Mid-January 2014 until end of October 2014: This is one of the most significant times of your
life. During this time your responsibilities will increase considerably, and you will try to
eliminate everything in your life that is not necessary to fulfilling them. Therefore your
life will become more complex and simpler at the same time. You are finishing up certain
tasks in your life and going into a five- to eight-year period of relatively quiet preparation
for a new beginning. You will be cutting some elements out of your life and working hard to
During this time you may have less freedom of movement than usual because of the pressure of
circumstances and the need to get things done. Old tasks that have never been completed must
be finished now. This may not be a very light-hearted time, but it should be quite
productive. But do not start out on a completely new project, because in a few years you may
find that you do not have the material or psychological resources to complete it. Finish what
is unfinished and simplify your life.
Good relationships will not suffer appreciably during this time, but bad ones will break up
completely. You are withdrawing from everything in your life that is unnecessary or in the
way of your development during the next few years. Bad or difficult relationships may be
among the elements that are discarded.
Try to avoid building a wall between yourself and others, for this is a great danger now.
Duty, responsibility and obligations do not preclude personally satisfying relationships, even
though you may feel that they do. If you cut yourself off from others unnecessarily, you will
become lonely and depressed. The people who belong in your everyday life are very important
for you now, especially since you are excluding those who do not belong. Often it is good to
seek out the company and advice of older people, for they have the insight and understanding
Neptune conjunction IC: Inner strength
Beginning of March 2014 until end of December 2015: The danger of this influence is that it is
likely to kick your props out from under you. In any activity that is important to you,
something may happen that will make it very difficult to continue in your present direction.
This event is probably not something that can easily be foreseen, and it will be difficult to
describe even as it is happening. It can take the form of a psychological crisis that results
in your feeling that you cannot go on. You may feel suddenly weak and ineffectual, even
though others may not be able to see any reason for this. It is also possible that events in
your most personal life will make it difficult to continue in your public or social
relationships with the self-confidence and assurance that you need to be at your best. There
may be domestic problems or difficulties with members of your immediate family. Someone very
close to you may be doing or saying things to you that are very discouraging.
But this influence can also have another effect. You may no longer feel like advancing in
your external social roles now, because you feel they have become meaningless and empty. You
may want to withdraw a bit and look at your life in terms of your own criteria instead of
others' and ask whether you are accomplishing what you yourself want to, rather than what
others want. Sometimes in life we go ahead too fast and lose track of our original purposes.
This is an excellent time to sit back and look at whether this has happened to you.
Many important elements of your life may come to an end and pass out of existence now. Let
them go, for it is the right time for this to happen, and it will ultimately be good. This is
a time to renounce those things, for you will soon discover that you do not really need them
anyway. As the old saying goes, we are naked when we come into this world and when we leave
it. Therefore what we have inside is important. Now is the time for you to find the strength
of what you have inside.
Jupiter conjunction Pluto: Self-betterment
From 19 August 2014 until 29 August 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 conjunction Jupiter: Wonderful opportunities
End of October 2014 until end of June 2015: This influence indicates the beginning of a new
cycle of growth and progress. However, it is often the focus of exaggerated expectations.
You may expect sudden windfalls, great wealth or luck, and all kinds of wonderful
opportunities. And these things do happen sometimes with this influence, but most people
should expect more subtle, but equally useful effects.
Events now, such as meetings with persons or even changes in your psyche, open the way for you
to become wiser and more mature and to have a broader understanding of the world. At this
time you will reach out consciously and unconsciously and ask more of the world, but at the
same time you are willing to give more to the world.
This influence can make you feel either more demanding or more giving toward others, but you
are not likely to get much out of it if you think only of what you can get. The law of
conservation of energy in the universe says that you can transform the energies in your life
from one form to another, but you cannot create them out of nothing. This influence
represents a time when you should see whether you are doing that in your life.
Concretely, you can expect persons who are good for you to come into your life. Or
circumstances will arise that give you increased freedom or an opportunity to do something
that you have never done before. Educational opportunities may come to you at this time, or a
chance to travel. Sometimes this influence does in fact bring about financial advantage, but
you should not sit around passively waiting for it to happen. This is an excellent time to
invest or expand in business as long as you are very careful not to overdo it or overextend
Jupiter square Ascendant: On the lookout
Mid-November 2014 until mid-July 2015: 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 public life.
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.
