The report was generated for 6 months starting from July 2014 with the following birth data:
male, born on 5 October 1917 at 4:00 pm in Mineral Point IA, Alaska.
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 Gemini.
Pluto square Sun: Power struggles
End of February 2013 until mid-October 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 life.
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 Venus: Harsh realizations
End of January 2014 until beginning of November 2014: This influence will have a strong effect
on your relationships with others. Relationships that are solidly based will go through a
period of testing and examination during which you and your loved ones and friends will become
increasingly concerned about what is valid between you. A weak and unstable relationship will
go through the same process, but you are more likely to conclude that it is not worth
preserving. Consequently, at this time the relationships that have no purpose or that have
outlived their purpose in your life will be cut off. Often you will be reluctant to let go of
Even in the best of circumstances you are likely to withdraw from others. During this time
you have to evaluate who you are, what your individuality consists of and how all of these fit
into your relationships with other people, particularly loved ones. You may come to some
harsh realizations about your relationships, and even those that you thought were quite good
may have to be given up. But you can be sure that any relationship that comes through this
period in good shape is very real and important to you.
New relationships with a strongly "fated" quality may also come into your life now, which will
have very profound significance for you in about fourteen years.
This is definitely a time to be conservative in financial matters and not take on any new
financial obligations, for you may have trouble meeting your existing ones. On the other
hand, this is an excellent time for firming up and organizing the financial structure of your
In general you should look upon this transit as a time for withdrawing into yourself with
respect to others and to material possessions. This withdrawal will enable you to get a
clearer idea of what and who you are, so that your future relationships with people and
possessions will be more solidly based on reality and therefore more reliable and useful.
Jupiter conjunction Neptune: A sense of compassion
From 11 August 2014 until 21 August 2014: 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 conjunction Saturn: A new freedom
Beginning of September 2014 until end of April 2015: During this time you will confront your
own inhibitions and self-restrictions, as well as the restrictions placed upon you by
circumstances. You may wish to break free of them in order to enlarge your scope of activity,
so you can go to places and do things that you have never been able to do before. On the
other hand, you may choose to grow within the structure of restriction in your life, using
that very structure to enlarge your life. It can go either way, depending very much upon your
temperament. And neither way is better as a general rule. It depends entirely on what is
appropriate in terms of your own life.
If you respond by trying to break free, you will begin to feel very restless. Events and
circumstances will make it clear that you have neglected much that must be done, and the
structures of your life that have held you back will seem intolerable. You can no longer
accept barriers such as responsibilities that you have put up with for years, onerous duties
or perhaps a built-in fear of breaking away from the established order. Consequently, if you
react in this way, this is often a time of breaking away and leaping out into a new freedom.
This is often accompanied by a change of residence or the breakup of relationships. And
however catastrophic these changes seem to others, they are usually quite fortunate and allow
everything to work out for the best.
If you respond in the second manner, you will also seek to expand your life and find new
freedom, but for a variety of reasons you will not overthrow the structures of your life in
order to do so. Instead you will seize every opportunity to build new structures and expand
the already existing order. Whatever you build up now, either in yourself or in the outer
world, will be lasting.
Jupiter conjunction Mars: An exuberant time
Mid-September 2014 until end of May 2015: This is a very exuberant time, with high energies.
You feel physically strong and fit, and you are more willing to be active and take chances
than at other times. Vigorous physical activity is one of the best ways to use this energy,
which strengthens your body and allows you to accomplish more than usual.
Almost anything that you direct your energies to, especially an activity that requires a lot
of energy, will seem to flow and happen as if you were not making any effort at all. It is
important to realize, however, that you are in fact working quite hard; after this period, and
even during it to some extent, you will need to stop a while and rest. One of the problems at
this time is that because you don't realize how hard your body and mind are working, there is
a real danger that you will overwork yourself. Certainly, if you are not in excellent
physical condition you should not take up heavy physical work without preparing for it, but
that is just what you might do with this influence.
This is a good time to begin a new project, as long as you don't overextend yourself. You
have much more initiative than usual, and you can accomplish a great deal by yourself.
Working with others may be frustrating, because it is hard for you to put up with their slower
Often this influence is expressed through doing something that requires a magnificent sense of
timing or planning. Or you will do something that works out very well for you in the long
run. Even if it doesn't require great energy, it will pay great dividends in the future.
Jupiter opposition Uranus: A need for newness
End of October 2014 until end of June 2015: This influence signifies a desire to release
yourself from restrictions and obligations that you feel have limited your life unnecessarily.
Often it coincides with a sudden break from some limiting circumstance, such as a person, a
duty or simply a way of life. This need for newness in your life and for something different
from the daily routine is a powerful force, and it will be very difficult to continue as you
You will feel the breaking away itself as an enormous relief, a lessening of tension. For
this reason you must review your life very carefully to find out what needs to be overthrown
and what does not. The danger is that you will overthrow worthwhile things along with the
useless. Be careful of this, because it could substantially vitiate any advantage you gain
from your new freedom.
Relationships are especially affected by this influence, particularly those that obligate you
in some way. A partnership may be quite difficult to maintain during this time. And to add
to the confusion, it is sometimes your partner who wants out. This is an example of an
influence experienced in projected form; instead of putting out the energy yourself, you
encounter someone who is apparently doing it for you. In this case, do not attempt to hold on
to the other person, for that is the surest way to drive her away. Give your partner all the
freedom she needs, for you need it, too, although you are not as aware of it.
A related expression of this influence is encountering a person who seeks in some way to
liberate you from yourself or from some duty that you have voluntarily taken on. You may find
such a person irritating, but he or she is performing a valuable function in your life.
Again, the roles may be reversed, and you may set out to change someone else's life. The
point is that this is a valuable influence, even though it may be somewhat disruptive. It can
prevent your life from becoming so static and stabilized that you cease to be truly alive.
