The report was generated for 6 months starting from December 2013 with the following birth
data: male, born on 13 January 1950 at 7:12 am in Lynwood, California.
Your sun sign is Capricorn. This is the sign in which the Sun is in your birth chart. Your
Ascendant is also in Capricorn, and your Moon is in Scorpio.
Jupiter trine MC: Boundless enthusiasm
End of August 2013 until beginning of May 2014: This is a time of increased optimism and self-
confidence. You feel capable of doing much more than you have ever done, and you are willing
to make the effort. This influence quite often signifies success in your public or social
life. Others will look to you for leadership, for they recognize your self-confidence and see
that you deserve it.
You have a good idea about where you want to go at this time, and you have probably mastered
the techniques and skills needed to get there and have acquired the material resources as
well. Under this influence you may gain financially, but you are not likely to squander your
money. You will use it to get ahead.
You may want to make improvements in your home or move to a larger and more spacious one.
Even if nothing very obvious happens on the material plane, as may be the case, this is
usually a time of inner peace and contentment. You feel good about yourself, with none of the
torments and insecurities that may afflict you at other times. Your confidence comes over to
other people, and they feel good being with you. As a result you may be able to support or
cheer up someone who is not feeling very well.
At this time you should be careful not to overextend yourself or become overcommitted in your
boundless enthusiasm. Keep in mind that even now your energies are finite.
Jupiter square Neptune: False optimism
Mid-September 2013 until end of May 2014: At this time you will work very hard to actualize
your ideals and find a concrete way to put your spiritual views into practice in the real
world. But you can expect the real world to put up some resistance to your ideas. Among
other things, you will be challenged to demonstrate that your ideals are not just irrelevant,
impractical abstractions. You will also have to demonstrate that your views are based on
realism rather than some dream world, which is where you may very well be now. At any rate,
this time will give you the opportunity to find out.
You will give readily when called upon now, because this influence signifies a great
generosity to people who are less fortunate than yourself. But you may not be very discreet
in choosing the people on whom you lavish your charity. Some people can be helped, and it
would be worthwhile to spend your time on them. But others are not worth wasting time on,
although with this influence you may not be able to tell the difference.
On another level, this influence can signify the kind of false optimism that makes you take
foolish risks, especially with limited resources. In any financial dealings be very careful
that everything is exactly as represented to you by others. Otherwise you could be taken for
This time is a test of your grasp of reality and your ability to translate ideals into
practice. There is no reason to assume that you will not pass the test, but you do have to be
Religious or spiritual delusions are another danger of this influence. You may be tempted to
run after false messiahs or teachers whose ability to dazzle with spiritual phrases exceeds
their ability to teach you how to cope with your life.
Jupiter sextile Saturn: Prudence and caution
End of September 2013 until end of May 2014: During this time you approach expansion and
growth from a very careful and pragmatic point of view. Everything you do, every plan you
make is characterized by prudence and caution. You are interested in what could be, but this
concern is well balanced by your concern for what is already. You are neither idealistic nor
You do not see duties and obligations as limitations upon your life but as routes to achieving
wisdom and maturity. This is a fundamentally correct view, but you must balance your need for
freedom with your need to get work done in order to see it that way. That is what you are
doing now. You are oriented to work and duty, but you can also see that certain apparent
responsibilities are really not validly yours. And you are not willing to take on someone
else's share of the work unless you can see real benefit from doing so.
In financial terms, you are very thrifty at this time. You can see what the best investments
are, and you proceed very carefully while putting your money into them. Therefore these
investments are more likely than most to work out well.
During this period you will discover how to turn your ideals into reality, partly because you
can see which goals and ideals are realistic and which are not. You discard whatever is not
realistic, and you work for your goals very patiently, laying a solid groundwork for success.
This is usually a good time, because your prudence and thrift enable you to separate the real
opportunities from the illusory ones and thereby make real gains.
Saturn square Pluto: Shedding your skin
End of November 2013 until beginning of September 2014: This can be a difficult time in your
life. Because of circumstances and other people, you find it very difficult to make the
changes you would like to make in the world around you. For example, your ambitions may be
frustrated. People in authority may try to prevent you from accomplishing what you want.
Financially, you will probably have to curb expenses because you simply do not have the
resources. Sometimes the experience of this transit is much like struggling against chains
that hold you down. The temptation is to resist and struggle with all your might.
However, resisting is not the best way to handle this energy, because that would set in motion
destructive powers beyond your control. This influence is sometimes associated with violent
incidents, so take care. The best way to handle it is with some degree of detachment.
Understandably you will be quite upset with some of the obstacles that crop up now, but regard
them as a way of finding out which areas of your life are working and which are not. This
influence usually represents a call to eliminate the unnecessary and superfluous elements in
your life. It requires that you get rid of the dead and useless structures. If you do it
voluntarily, it will be easier.
When this period is over, you will emerge from the crisis considerably tougher than you were.
Conserve your resources, and if you are in financial difficulty, reorganize your life so that
you can get along with less.
Saturn square Venus: A sense of tension
Beginning of December 2013 until end of September 2014: This is a time of considerable tension
and difficulty in your relationships. Love relationships often cool off and may even break up
altogether during this time. You may discover that a love affair wasn't what you thought it
was, a rude awakening after a period of lovely illusions. Or you may suddenly lose interest
in a relationship that had seemed perfectly viable up until now. Of course, the other person
may be the one who leaves you.
Aside from love relationships, there is a sense of tension and a feeling that it is somehow
more difficult to relate to people. You may feel that any sort of relationship exists at the
cost of your freedom and sense of individuality. Relationships seem to be more trouble than
they are worth.
Another effect of this influence may be that "circumstances beyond your control" seem to get
in the way of an existing relationship and force it to break up, even though neither of you
wants this to happen. But this is almost never what is really happening. Usually one of you
has a conscious or unconscious need to withdraw from the relationship, and you subtly maneuver
circumstances to make it break up. Or you may be testing the relationship to see how much it
can take. A good one will survive and be stronger.
Every relationship must be an honest expression of yourself. But we often get into
relationships that have little to do with our true selves, usually because of fear, a need for
security, or a sense of personal inadequacy. Relationships sometimes simply outlive their
time, and these are the ones that will suffer and perhaps die now. They are at cross purposes
to your pursuit of life and self-expression.
Loneliness is a problem at this time, because your need for relationships and your need to be
yourself are equally great. Instead of working harmoniously, as they should, they are in
conflict. But consciously or unconsciously, the need to be yourself is the greater at this
Saturn sextile Saturn: Limited warranty
Mid-December 2013 until end of September 2014: This is a time of equilibrium and balance in
your life, because now you have a pretty good idea of how to handle your own world. Events
will run along more or less easily during this time. But it is important to note that it will
not necessarily be an especially happy or peaceful time. Our lives are directed by our own
demands much more than we realize, but very often those demands are unconscious. We would
often be horrified if we knew what we are really trying to do. We try to protect ourselves
and what we feel belongs to us from "threats" that often are not real threats according to
adult criteria. Yet we structure our world according to them. This influence only guarantees
that you will be successful in patterning your world. If you are very unhappy at this time,
you had best get in touch with what you are really doing.
This can be a time when you are successfully approaching your main conscious goals in life.
Or it can be a time when you are being run largely by unconscious "programs," as if you were a
computer. Usually you will experience a little of both of these effects. However, in the
long run the positive possibilities are more useful to know about. Concerning the negative
side of this influence, suffice it to say that the difficult and unsatisfactory aspects of
your life that you are experiencing now require you to look into yourself more closely.
At this time you are particularly good at working with other people. You are able to see your
individuality and differentness in a way that makes it possible for you to work with others in
a complementary way so that neither you nor they feel competitive. You can work just as well
with people who are above you and with those at your own level.
You approach your own goals methodically and practically, for you are not particularly
idealistic at this point. You are much more concerned about how to achieve what you want in
concrete practical terms. Use this time well, for it gives you the opportunity to lay a
foundation that will protect you in the future.
