Neptune opposition Venus: Obscure problems
End of April 2014 until mid-February 2016: 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.
Saturn square MC: An evaluation of goals
A transit approaching its end, from end of January 2015, remaining until beginning of November
2015: 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.
Neptune conjunction Saturn: Temporarily disoriented
Beginning of April 2015 until beginning of February 2017: Under this influence you will
discover that in many ways your view of the world isn't at all correct. This may occur
through a series of obvious disappointments, or it may take place more subtly through an
increasing sense of anxiety that has no obvious cause. Fear and loss of self-confidence are
two of the most difficult effects of this influence. You may suddenly become afraid for
almost no reason at all, and you may fear things that are not at all threatening to others.
It is as if you were becoming disoriented.
This is the "dark night of the soul" referred to by mystics, the period of confusion that
precedes the understanding that you can live with a reality that is different from what you
had thought. At the highest level this influence can be a prelude to enlightenment,
understanding the true nature of the "illusion" we call reality.
In most cases, however, this transit influence means that your concept of reality is changing,
which begins with the dissolution of your old concepts, leaving you temporarily disoriented.
The best way to handle this period is to get into comfortable surroundings and reduce the
stress level in your life as much as possible. Stress will only prolong the confusion. Try
to avoid making any decisions, because you are not in a very good frame of mind for seeing
things clearly. Avoid people who seem difficult or demoralizing. You need to be in a calm
position so that you can see what new truths emerge from the fog and confusion. And they will
Jupiter conjunction Neptune: A sense of compassion
Beginning of October 2015 until end of May 2016: During this time your ideals will be aroused
as they seldom are at other times, and you will approach life with a greater sense of
compassion. People who cannot help themselves will win your sympathy especially, whether you
encounter them personally or through working with others in a charitable enterprise. Your
primary concern is to help individuals by giving them a hand. You may be less concerned with
transforming the social order that has given rise to the conditions that oppress the people
you are dealing with.
Your interest in spiritual, religious and mystical philosophy is likely to grow at this time,
and you may become involved in a group that is studying these subjects. This world no longer
seems to meet your needs adequately, so you have to turn inward to find a world that can give
you what you really need. Here, too, you will discover that the ego's drives for
self-gratification and self-assertion may be the major factors in preventing you from getting
what you want out of life. At this time the demands of the ego must be quieted at least a
little, so you can hear what the inner self is really saying.
Unfortunately there is another side to this influence, which you should watch for. Some
people develop a feeling of false happiness, like living in the dream world of an opium
smoker, with no basis in reality. You may feel that everything is all right when it is not,
or you may feel that you can do anything you want and get away with it. That is why this
influence is often associated with gambling or taking risks with limited resources, often with
disastrous results. This is not a very good time for investments, not because you will
necessarily lose out, but because you just won't know for sure, and you will be tempted to
gamble even when it is a poor risk. For the same reason, in business deals be sure you are
not the victim of a massive misrepresentation.
With this influence it is best to avoid purely selfish concerns, for when your actions are
thus motivated you are most likely to encounter its negative side.
Jupiter sextile Jupiter: In good working order
Beginning of October 2015 until beginning of June 2016: This is a time of balance and
equilibrium in your life, when all your affairs seem to run smoothly and without much effort
on your part. It is a time when you can relax and take it easy for a while, knowing that your
life is in good working order. This is also a time when growth seems to occur without much
effort - growth in consciousness, in your social life or wherever you feel that personal
growth is important.
But this is not really a time when you should just enjoy yourself. You should do that, to be
sure, but you should also be examining your life to see what needs to be done. It is
important to think this way now because the equilibrium that is characteristic of this period
enables you to look about yourself with reasonable calm and detachment. It is much harder to
achieve a perspective when you are in the middle of some major and possibly chaotic change.
This is a good time to achieve perspective in all possible senses of the word. It is a good
time for education, either formal or informal, for getting in touch with yourself through
self-awareness studies, or for seeing the larger world through travel.
Business transactions or negotiations are also favored now. Legal affairs also usually run
Jupiter sextile Sun: Growth and optimism
End of December 2015 until mid-August 2016: This is a time when life seems to flow very
easily. With little effort, you are able to move in the direction that you intend, and even
your ideals seem to be within reach of fulfillment. It is a period of growth, optimism and
taking it easy. In many respects this is a good time to sit back and take a long look at how
well your life is working out.
Because you feel vigorous and energetic, this is an excellent time to advance your interests
in almost any area, although that impetus may be lacking.
Relationships with others are usually quite good now, and you enjoy being with friends. This
influence often indicates good times, as your enthusiasm for life bubbles over and affects
everyone around you.
This is also a good time for making plans, for you are inclined to "think big," which is a
general function of your optimism. While you can overdo this tendency, you will probably be
alert to opportunities that you would normally overlook or be afraid to take.
You feel generous and tolerant, and not easily bothered when something goes wrong in your
world. You recognize that there is plenty of time to correct the problem, so you don't get
upset. You aren't annoyed by persons who usually irritate you, and you may even feel like
patching up relationships that have gone bad or become difficult.
