The report was generated for 6 months starting from December 2013 with the following birth
data: female, born on 30 April 1926 at 5:45 am in Des Moines, Iowa.
Your sun sign is Taurus. This is the sign in which the Sun is in your birth chart. Your
Ascendant is also in Taurus, and your Moon is in Sagittarius.
Uranus trine Moon: Graceful changes
Beginning of April 2013 until beginning of March 2014: This influence represents an excellent
opportunity for you to make changes in your emotional life and personal surroundings, such as
your home. And you can make these changes without causing great problems and upsets, as might
be the case at other times. For example, you could remodel your home or change your personal
habits. Either of these changes would be appropriate to the energy of this influence.
Events may present you with opportunities to experience your emotions in a new way. You may
begin a new relationship that will bring feelings you have never had before. A love
relationship that begins under this influence will have a wonderful excitement that may be
missing at other times. Existing relationships may also change so that they, too, allow you
new emotional experiences.
A situation may occur that brings up an event from the past so that you can examine it in a
new light and change your attitudes toward it. By understanding the past differently, you
will be able to change its effect upon you. For example, this may be an encounter with your
mother or other female relative that clarifies and allows you to change your attitude toward
something that happened in your childhood.
You may have got into certain routines with friends and other people whom you see every day,
with the result that you have not been experiencing them as they really are. Unconsciously
adopted attitudes may have got in the way of seeing them clearly. This influence gives you
the chance to recognize these attitudes and to change them. Consequently you may experience
your friends as new individuals.
Take advantage of this opportunity to make graceful changes in your personal life. Now it
will be easy to get rid of unconscious attitudes, habits and routines that will be much harder
to get rid of later on.
Uranus conjunction Mercury: Thinking things through
End of May 2013 until beginning of February 2015: This is a very positive influence, a time
when your mind will be stimulated as never before. New ideas, new techniques and new
approaches to life will continually come to you. Radical ideas that you would never have
entertained before seem perfectly all right now, and you are able to use them positively.
Communication will take on a more important role in your life at this time. You need to share
with everyone the new insights that are coming into your life. Consequently you are likely to
become a proselytizer for new ideas, trying to break others out of their rigid patterns of
thinking. Astrology and the occult in general will attract you now, if they haven't in the
past. You will also be interested in scientific and technological disciplines. This is an
excellent time to begin studying science and mathematics.
However, if you want to take advantage of these opportunities, you must be quite flexible in
your own thinking. If your thinking is very rigid, this will be an extremely upsetting period
in which your ideas are challenged and found wanting. Under these circumstances you may
become more tense, nervous and threatened. Even if you go along with the insights that this
influence can bring, it may be upsetting, because the pace is too fast to keep up. Nervous
ailments and anxieties can be a part of this period if the pace becomes too hectic.
A related problem now is the tendency to scatter your thoughts so that you don't think things
through very carefully. There is the danger of making decisions impulsively without adequate
forethought. In general, this is not a good time to make decisions, but rather a time to
learn. Make sure you are in a position where you are free to change your mind, for you may do
it frequently. If you try to make a permanent commitment to some new course of action, you
are likely to embarrass yourself by seeming inconsistent. The problem is really that you are
so constantly exposed to new data that your conclusions have to change as your understanding
Jupiter square Mercury: Big plans
Mid-August 2013 until end of April 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 conjunction Pluto: Self-betterment
Mid-August 2013 until end of April 2014: This influence brings the urge to achieve to the
forefront of your life. You will make great, even extraordinary, efforts to gain success as
you personally define it. You work harder and strive to gain your objective with every ounce
of energy at your disposal. Consequently, this influence often occurs just at the moment when
some tremendous effort in your life bears fruit.
Sometimes there is a tremendous drive to gain power, and this influence can bring you power
even when you are not trying especially hard to get it. Remember that each person has
opportunities for a different kind of power. It may be great or relatively humble in terms of
the larger society, but it will be meaningful to you.
This power drive is sufficiently strong that it is difficult to deny, even if it has
absolutely no outlet. In that case you are likely to get into some kind of conflict with
authorities, even to the extent of arrest. If your ambition becomes the irresistible force
against an immovable society, you will probably be the loser. Therefore you must scan your
life to find areas where you can let this energy manifest itself. Surely in some area of your
life you can better yourself and achieve something that would bring you recognition and
respect. This is true no matter how depressed you think you are or how downtrodden your
circumstances. If you put all your energy into working on that, it is quite likely that you
will accomplish what you want.
The dominant drive of this influence is self-betterment, but each individual has to define
that term for herself. You can work in that direction now, and how well you succeed depends
largely on what you mean by betterment. Unfortunately, for some people it means simply money
or power. If you are one of them, throughout this period you will act as if obsessed, and
indeed, power can become a fanatical preoccupation. Other people may become obsessed by an
idea, usually concerning righteousness or morality. This also carries the danger that you
will lose track of all normal human values and try to live with a distorted set of standards
Jupiter sextile Ascendant: Efforts with friends
End of September 2013 until end of May 2014: This is usually an extremely fortunate influence
for all kinds of social contacts. You will benefit through others, and they will probably
benefit through you. If you choose to go it alone at this time, you will waste a valuable
opportunity, for you will profit tremendously from team efforts with friends. Also you will
have opportunities to work on projects that may be to your personal advantage; these will come
from persons you encounter every day around your neighborhood, people from whom you do not
expect much beyond the usual social exchanges.
At this time you will have the opportunity to expand your contacts with the larger world.
Sometimes this influence is a sign of travel, but certainly you will encounter people whose
backgrounds are quite different from yours and whose experience will increase your
understanding of the world. Several of these people may become permanent friends whom you
will benefit from knowing.
You may also benefit from old friends. A friend may tell you about a good chance to get ahead
in some way.
At the same time, you feel benevolent and well disposed to your friends and acquaintances.
You are willing and able to help those who need it, and generally you display an attitude of
supportive kindness to the people around you, for you don't want to see people in trouble.
This basic willingness to give and to help others enables you to receive much from others as
well. People sense that you will conduct all transactions fairly, so they are willing to be
fair to you. Actually this is always true, but you are more able to see it at this time.
Saturn conjunction Descendant: Relationships on trial
Beginning of December 2013 until end of September 2014: This influence has two quite different
meanings. First of all, it can indicate a period in which intimate one-to-one relationships
become an area of great responsibility. Chief among these is your marriage or living with
your partner, but it also refers to close partnerships of any sort. You must pay close
attention to these relationships. Strains and tensions that have been developing in the
recent past are likely to surface now and must be dealt with immediately! Sometimes the only
way to handle these problems is to end the relationship, so this can be a time of great trial
for a marriage. Even under the best of circumstances you will have to work harder on
partnerships and try to solve as many problems as possible.
Related to this is another possible area of concern: namely, problems with people who oppose
your interests in various matters. Such people can range from outright enemies to those who
simply want to keep you in check for some reason. If this kind of problem arises, all you can
do is try to understand the person's motivation and do what you can to eliminate their reasons
for opposing you.
But aside from these two kinds of problems involving others, this influence means that at this
time you are making a significant breakthrough in your life.
For several years now you have been working quietly to get ahead and make new beginnings. Now
the work you have been doing is beginning to bear fruit and you will be acknowledged. In
fact, one of the reasons you are having conflict with enemies is that now you are really
beginning to get somewhere in life, which is likely to be threatening to others.
At any rate, now you are ready for the upward climb to attain your goals in life. This is a
very critical time, when you must work very carefully to get ahead. Do not take any shortcuts
to success that violate what you believe to be right.
