Uranus opposition Venus: Enjoy the present
End of April 2013 until end of March 2014: Your love life and relationships will be the
sources of change in your life at this time. A loved one may become restless and begin to
question the basis of your relationship. She may demand more freedom and ask that the
relationship be changed considerably. A good relationship probably will not break up, but all
kinds of tension will surface that you and your partner may not have dealt with before. You
should allow this to happen and not try to smooth over feelings that should be expressed.
It is also possible that you may be the one who becomes restless and demands a change in the
relationship. You may begin to feel that it has become boring, so you seek out a new
relationship that will provide the excitement that you feel is lacking. Under this influence
people often form relationships that would seem highly improbable to themselves and others
under other circumstances. The problem is that there is a real ambiguity in your mind about
yourself and your relationships. You want to be close to people and to be free at the same
time. Consequently you will be attracted to relationships that either express your desire for
freedom or that are impossible to consummate, as described above. For this reason you should
not expect any relationship formed under this influence to last very long. It could last, but
you should not expect it. This is a good time to enjoy the present. Don't live in the
It would be much better to use this energy to redefine and change your existing relationships,
if they have anything at all to offer, so that they are a more complete expression of yourself
and your loved ones. The best relationships are those in which the compromises that you make
do not require you to become a different person.
If you are working in a creative art form, this will be a tremendously stimulating period.
You may not get much actual work done, but you will be exposed to new ideas and techniques,
which later you will be able to integrate into your overall technique.
Jupiter square Venus: Warmth of feeling
Beginning of August 2013 until beginning of April 2014: This influence can create within you
genuine warmth of feeling and the desire to give and express love to others. Unfortunately it
can also make you feel very unenterprising and passive, so that you wait for things to come to
you when you ought to go out after them. It is very hard to tell which of these two broad
classes of response to expect, but generally speaking, the first is more common.
On occasions this influence may mean that you will attract someone with whom you could have a
significant relationship, but it may not be an easy relationship. It is likely to be quite
constructive, however, and whether or not you realize it immediately, you will gain from it in
wisdom and maturity.
The principal difficulty with this influence is that it inspires rather compulsive feelings,
which do not leave you enough room to maneuver and handle the new relationship properly.
Because you act compulsively, your feelings may overwhelm the other person. And it is very
important to realize that there is always a certain tension between closeness and the love of
freedom. It is quite possible to combine these into a very creative relationship that will be
pleasant and constructive for both of you, but you will have to calm yourself down a bit and
proceed with less excitement. If you can do this easily, this influence should be very good
This influence stimulates your love of beauty. Make every effort to surround yourself with
beauty, such as pleasant surroundings, art objects or beautiful scenery. With some people,
this feeling becomes perverted into a love of gaudy, showy things that have no real worth. To
each his or her own, of course, but do not get seduced into wasting money on some trifle that
you will regret in soberer moments.
Jupiter square Mercury: Big plans
End of August 2013 until beginning of May 2014: This influence signifies increased mental
activity and a desire to communicate to others something that you consider important. Whether
or not your message is important, you probably think it is, so you should take the time to see
if that is true. There is no point in loading people up with your ideas and opinions unless
they are worth something. And when you speak to others at this time it is vital that you
listen to their response. For although you have big ideas and plans, there is a tendency now
to overlook details. You may be unwilling to listen to criticism, but if you listen and heed
what you are told, this can be an excellent time for making decisions, planning, negotiating
and concluding deals or agreements. But this will happen only if you listen to others'
This is usually a time of optimism and positive feelings. You have confidence in your ideas
and are able to get them across. Communications of all kinds are important to you; for
example, you may conceivably do some writing at this time.
It is also important not to overextend yourself. Make sure that your plans are no larger than
your ability to cope with them. Sometimes with this influence the pace can get pretty hectic,
because you have to handle many different affairs at once. This is when sloppy thinking can
become especially dangerous.
During this period you may encounter resistance to your ideas and opinions from a number of
sources. It is a good time to examine your ideas and see how well they really hold up in an
argument. It is a good time to change any views that do not hold up because you can easily
enlarge your viewpoint under this influence. You feel no need to be petty or quarrelsome, but
you do feel compelled to defend the ideas that are important to you. Any truly important
beliefs will hold up during this confrontation and become more a part of your basic mental
pattern than ever.
Jupiter square Mars: Insight and skill
Mid-September 2013 until mid-May 2014: This influence gives you a great deal of confidence and
makes you feel very self-assertive. Usually this is all right, but some people will express
this energy by becoming arrogant and domineering. Also be wary of overconfidence, resulting
in attempts to do things that are simply beyond you.
Intemperance in almost any activity could completely undo the basically positive nature of
this influence. Avoid exaggeration and try to maintain some sense of proportion. If you can
do all of this, you will be able to get more work done than usual, and you will do it well.
You will be able to accomplish things that you are usually afraid to tackle because you feel
inadequate, and you can take the initiative when you would otherwise wait for others to take
With care and planning and adequate restraint, this influence is a general sign of fortunately
timed action that takes advantage of the proper moment and makes the most of it. And this is
not luck on your part, but insight and skill. All of this requires preparation, however,
because impulsive actions at this time are not likely to be very effective.
It may be particularly important to placate persons in authority. If you act precipitately,
they may become alarmed and think of you as a threat, whether or not you intend to be. Of
course, if you do consciously intend to be a threat, this influence could be a help, assuming
again that you have planned carefully. But if you are not conscious of your intentions, you
may experience opposition from others without ever quite understanding why.
Jupiter square Sun: A matter of self-control
Beginning of October 2013 until beginning of June 2014: This can be an excellent time, but you
must watch out for some pitfalls that could undo all the benefits. Basically this influence
is a test of your discipline and self-restraint. If you are not a restrained person, you will
react to this influence by going overboard in some way, overextending yourself or living in a
fool's paradise where you think nothing can go wrong. Or you might squander a valuable
resource, only to find on another day that you do not have enough of what you need. Sometimes
there is a feeling that luck will provide everything that you need without any effort on your
part, but this, too, is a false notion.
But this time can also provide a chance for real growth and expanded opportunities. It is a
matter of how much control you have over yourself. You have to know precisely where you are
and what your real needs are in order to take the most advantage of this time. You also have
to know when you can't handle anything more. Knowing when to stop is the real trick.
Sometimes this influence encourages ego inflation and excessive pride. Be careful not to act
in an overbearing manner, for you will set people in motion who will try to knock you down a
peg or two. Here too, you must know where to stop.
Under certain conditions this influence can trigger conflict with the law or with someone else
in a court of law. You may or may not lose, but don't act the role of outraged honor and
dignity. Try to find out exactly what the problem is and arrive at a solution that is
satisfactory to all.
Uranus opposition Mercury: Constant exposure
Mid-April 2014 until mid-March 2015: This influence may bring considerable excitement into
your life from several different quarters. Its general effect is to stimulate and quicken the
tempo of your everyday communication and thinking. You will not be able to sit back and take
it easy, for you will constantly be exposed to news, conversations, letters and other
communications that will challenge you to make a quick response and which can be quite
upsetting. You will have to face life with more flexibility than usual and be prepared to
change your thinking on a number of issues.
At its best, this influence gives you an opportunity to become involved with new and
stimulating ways of thinking and looking at the world. You will be attracted to challenging
systems of thought that let you discover new facets of life. You may begin to study
astrology, other occult disciplines or a scientific or technical field. Any subject that
allows you to experiment and try out new ideas will appeal to you.
However, this influence also has a problem side. Be careful not to let the tempo of your life
become too rapid, for it can accelerate to the point that you cannot keep track of what is
happening. There is a danger that you can become mentally exhausted and suffer from nerves
and anxiety, particularly if you are used to a rather quiet routine. Try not to be too
bothered by upsetting news. Deal with events as calmly and carefully as possible, and if you
begin to feel harried, don't take on any more responsibilities than you have to.
Traveling at this time is not a very good idea. A pleasure trip would bring too many
unexpected surprises to be enjoyable, and it would not be at all relaxing. This influence may
also scatter your thinking so much that you should not make important decisions. This is an
excellent time for new discoveries and new experiences, but it is not good for making
commitments that will bind you in the future. In general this period is not good for
