The report was generated for 6 months starting from the 1st of February 2016 with the
following birth data: male, born on 22 August 1920 at 4:50 pm in Waukegan, Illinois.
Your sun sign is Leo. This is the sign in which the Sun is in your birth chart. Your Ascendant
is in Capricorn, and your Moon is in Sagittarius.
In case you are wondering why you are addressed as Leo in this report: If you had been born 12
hours 32 minutes later, you would be the subsequent sign Virgo. The exact hour at which the
sun moves from one sign into the next is different every year.
Jupiter conjunction Saturn: A new freedom
Beginning of October 2015 until beginning of June 2016: 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 Venus: Elegance and taste
Beginning of October 2015 until beginning of June 2016: This influence helps to smooth over
all difficulties in your relationships, as well as to promote friendship and give you a strong
desire for happy and peaceful times. You enjoy being with and talking with friends and will
probably attend or hold several social gatherings during this time. You may also be the
center of attention for some reason, and you will enjoy basking in the limelight.
This influence occasionally will bring a new love interest into your life. If it does, and
other factors are equal, the relationship should prove to be an unusually successful one in
which you both grow a great deal and in which there is an excellent balance between love and
freedom. Such a relationship will be devoid of jealousy or pettiness to an unusual extent.
The same energy affects existing relationships, so that you are able to relate to loved ones
with great ease. Because you are concerned with the larger issues in your relationship, you
are not about to cause trouble over any problem that is not extremely important. And such a
problem is not likely to surface during this time.
At this time also your taste is likely to become more elegant, and you may be tempted to buy
something that is very expensive or fancy. At the worst it might even be gaudy or tasteless.
In fact one of the few real dangers to watch out for under this influence is the tendency to
waste or squander money or other resources. Depending upon your own state of mind, however,
this influence can also bring in money and increase your resources. Whichever way it goes, it
should be well under your control.
You have a strong desire to surround yourself with beauty. Sordid or ugly surroundings are
much harder than usual for you to bear, so make an effort to avoid them. You are concerned
with the beautiful side of life at this time, and you should do everything to expose yourself
Jupiter square Moon: Magnanimity
End of October 2015 until end of June 2016: This is usually a very favorable influence. It
gives your emotions a great deal of power, so that you feel them much more emphatically and
are more in touch with them. At the same time you want to establish empathetic relationships
with others, to hear their problems, to help out and play a protective role toward them if
possible. This influence may make you feel very sentimental about and attached to your
surroundings and to familiar objects. Your past is very important to you now, and if there
are events in your past that you find uncomfortable, they are likely to come up. There is
often a need to confront the unconscious areas of the psyche during this time, but you should
regard this as an opportunity to be healed of the wounds made by these energies from the past.
In emotional relationships, this influence can create a tension between your desire to be
close to someone and the desire to be free. Be careful to give your loved ones the same
freedom that you want, and do not try to be unfairly possessive of them. Also, confrontations
with the unconscious aspects of yourself mentioned above can affect relationships adversely
during this time. In such cases it is necessary to cultivate a sense of detachment and not
become so wrapped up in your emotions that you cannot see beyond them.
This influence gives an enormous concern with social and individual justice. You are easily
outraged when you see someone getting the short end of the stick, but your emotionalism may
make it difficult to see a good solution to the problem. Try to avoid feeling self-righteous
and intolerant. You will need to have a very open and generous point of view in order to
clear up any conflicts that occur at this time, and emotionalism masquerading as righteousness
will not accomplish anything useful. Instead, take advantage of the ample positive side of
this energy by helping those who need it. Protect the people you can protect and succor those
who have been hurt. Magnanimity is just as much in accordance with the meaning of this
influence as are extreme emotionalism and self-righteousness.
Saturn square Saturn: Soul-searching
Beginning of January 2016 until end of October 2016: This is a critical period in which
several aspects of your life and experience will be tested, especially those that began to be
important about seven years ago. Most often this influence is experienced as a sort of
identity crisis in which you begin to question what you are doing. You may suffer a crisis of
confidence at this time, fearing that you have made the wrong moves in life or committed
yourself to some course of action that will not be good in the long run. During this period
you will think about and question all the long-term trends in your life. You will not be
thinking about trivial matters.
Sometimes a particular event triggers off this period of soul-searching. Others may create
difficulties for you, especially in your public and social life. Perhaps they detect the
first signs of insecurity that will afflict you during this period. If they are people who
naturally compete with you, they may try to take advantage of your apparent weakness. People
in authority may also sense your feelings of insecurity.
You must recognize that some aspects of your life need to be questioned at this time. But
don't stand in one spot quivering about your life. Examine it and make whatever changes are
possible and seem appropriate. Any project you started seven years ago or any new aspect of
yourself that first surfaced then that is truly worth continuing will still be worthwhile
after this period. This is a time of testing, and anything that withstands the test will be
better for it. Things that do not pass the test are well got rid of. Shortly you will enter
a period of stability and fruitfulness that will justify the events that take place now. In
fact, if you are truly conscious of your life and your objectives, you will not undergo a real
crisis at all. You will only go through a period of examining what is working and what is
not. Your difficulties with the outer world at this time are signals about what you should be
Saturn square Venus: A sense of tension
Mid-January 2016 until end of October 2016: 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
Uranus square Ascendant: Sudden separations
Beginning of May 2016 until end of March 2017: This influence is likely to have a very
disruptive effect on your relationships. Influences may enter your life that will challenge
the foundations upon which your life is built. This challenge will be reflected in surprising
encounters with others that upset your way of living or in sudden separations from persons who
you thought would remain in your life for some time. Or it may be that you yourself are the
catalyst of all these changes as you seek to become free of circumstances that have become
During this period it is quite likely that you will do things and go to places you never would
have thought of in the past. The old patterns of your life simply can no longer encompass
what your life is becoming now.
From all of the above it should be obvious that this is not an "evil" influence, although
anyone who is wedded to the status quo in life or to their own past will find this period
difficult to contend with. Old patterns that have acquired a stranglehold over your life will
break up. You may not have been aware of these patterns, because many people find their
"strangleholds" quite comfortable, at least until much later on.
The people who enter your life at this time may be quite different from anyone you have known
before. Some of these relationships may be quite brief. You may encounter someone for a
specific purpose, which you may not be aware of at the time, and once that purpose is
accomplished, the relationship ends.
If a new love interest enters your life at this point, it is likely to be exciting, free and
totally unpredictable. Do not make a permanent commitment to it until well after the end of
this period, for such a relationship is likely to be very unstable and brief.
