The report was generated for 6 months starting from September 2014 with the following birth
data: male, born on 31 December 1972 at 8:50 pm in Needham, Massachusetts.
Your sun sign is Capricorn. This is the sign in which the Sun is in your birth chart. Your
Ascendant is in Virgo, and your Moon is in Sagittarius.
Pluto conjunction Sun: Facing the shadow
End of March 2012 until beginning of November 2014: This is a time of great change in your
life, when you will strive as never before to accomplish your ambitions. You will work harder
than ever and not allow obstacles to prevent you from achieving your objectives. If you
handle the energies of this influence skillfully, you should be able to go far with it, but
you should be aware of certain pitfalls.
During this time you can work to remove old outworn structures in your own life and in the
lives of those around you, so that all of you can experience a new life. But you must observe
two limitations. First, this influence gives tremendous drive and energy, but only for the
elimination of the truly old and outworn, not for doing anything you want. And second, it is
a transcendental influence. Therefore its energies are not easily harnessed to the purposes
of unenlightened egotism. What you do with this influence should be for the eventual
betterment of everyone around you, not just yourself. You are the steward of this energy, not
the owner. If you use it for purely selfish ends, you will provoke such furious opposition
that you will eventually be unable to do anything. Similarly, if you use this energy to
remove structures that are not yet ready to pass away, you will be unable to make progress.
This influence signifies the need to replace an old, inferior state of being with a new and
truly superior state. It does not just arbitrarily replace one with another.
The last point to remember is that you must do something now. You cannot simply sit back and
let this time go by without making some changes. If you do not make them consciously,
circumstances will take over for you, probably with unpleasant results. You may have to face
some aspects of yourself that you do not like, but this is part of the process, and you will
find that those aspects are not really so bad. They only looked bad because you have never
given them a place in your conscious personality.
Neptune conjunction Descendant: Beware of "experts"
Beginning of March 2013 until end of December 2014: At this time your close, intimate
relationships will be difficult and confused. Also you should be very careful about
consulting others for advice now, even professionals such as lawyers, marriage counselors or
doctors. Of course, not all of these people will give you erroneous information even under
this influence, but you would be well advised not to suspend your own critical faculties just
because someone else seems to be an "expert."
A marriage or other partnership will be difficult because communications are unclear now.
Perhaps either you or your partner is trying to conceal something from the other. If so, you
should stop concealing it as soon as possible, for it can only undermine the confidence you
must have in each other. Even if you are concealing something for the other's "own good,"
your partner will not see it that way, and her confidence will still be undermined.
However, you may not be hiding anything. It may just be that communications between you are
getting worse. Make sure that you really understand each other, and do not assume that you
understand or that anything you say or do is understood automatically. Spontaneous and
immediate understanding is not a feature of this influence.
Avoid legal confrontations at this time, if at all possible. Completely unexpected events are
likely to happen, which you won't be prepared for. And your opponent may use underhanded
tactics that could hurt your position badly. In general your enemies, if you have any, will
be very deceptive during this time. It will be very hard to understand their tactics, let
alone deal with them. They may even make false overtures of friendliness to you. Do not
treat everyone with suspicion, but don't take everything at face value either.
Neptune square Neptune: Self-scrutiny
Mid-May 2013 until mid-December 2015: This transit is often a part of the "crisis of middle
age," since it occurs when you are about forty-two. During this period you are likely to
intensely question your life, your goals and how far you have fulfilled your ideals.
Depending upon the results of that evaluation, you may begin to make certain changes. The
problem is that this is not the best influence for making well-thought-out changes in your
life. There is a great danger that you will go off half-cocked in pursuit of some dream that
is unrealizable and not even worth realizing. It is very important to use this period for
self-scrutiny, but it is not a good idea to act yet.
If you act too quickly, you will only create severe disturbances in your emotional and
domestic life or in your work. You are likely to operate on the basis of partially formed
ideas about yourself and your needs. Unfortunately, since you are in your forties, you have
probably convinced yourself that you know who and what you are. And perhaps you have known,
but the function of this influence is to make you reevaluate who you are, which at this moment
you do not know. The best solution is to recognize this situation and simply allow yourself
to see the truth, whatever it may be. Give yourself plenty of latitude and have whatever
experiences seem necessary. Just don't make any permanent commitments during this time. You
don't want to spend the rest of your life with the consequences of ill-considered actions
taken under the influence of a passing delusion.
Many of the insights you receive during this period will be real, and many will not be real.
Only the passage of time will allow you to determine which are which.
Jupiter sextile Saturn: Prudence and caution
End of September 2014 until end of May 2015: 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.
In business 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. You will
be inclined to expand your business, but you will do so very cautiously rather than
Jupiter trine Venus: Pleasantly lazy
End of September 2014 until beginning of June 2015: You feel very light-hearted and sociable
now and want to spend as much time as possible with others. This is a good time for taking a
vacation, attending social gatherings, or participating in other forms of amusement and fun.
It is not conducive to any kind of serious effort, because you are inclined to feel pleasantly
lazy and unenterprising. There is also a very strong self-indulgent streak to this influence.
Be very careful not to eat or drink too much.
Fortunately you have the ability to make others feel good if they are unhappy or depressed,
and as a result, people enjoy being around you at this time. You may have the chance to do
favors for others that will eventually be returned. And since you feel generous and giving,
you will not mind doing them.
In some instances this influence has a way of drawing money or other material resources to
you. But don't sit around planning how to spend a sudden windfall from heaven, as many people
do with this influence. It is a possibility, but only one among many and not the most likely.
Actually it is more likely that you will spend money on objects that you consider beautiful.
Others may not appreciate your taste at this time, however, because it tends toward the flashy
or gaudy. Be careful that you don't get stuck with something that will offend your own taste
in a soberer moment.
You have a great desire for beauty, however, and if your taste is sound you will surround
yourself with objects that you can enjoy for years and that will also gain in value.
Saturn conjunction IC: Treading water
Beginning of December 2014 until mid-September 2015: In this extremely important period of
your life, you must pay very close attention to what you are doing, because you are beginning
a new phase of activity that will have important consequences in the years to come. The
difficult aspect of this time is that the process is very subtle, and it may not be obvious
that what you do now is important.
You have just gone through a period of preparation that probably seemed like treading water,
getting nowhere and accomplishing nothing. Some people may experience the time just before
this influence as exceedingly difficult, with one defeat after another. Others will find it
less difficult, but it will not seem terribly significant.
This is the end of a relatively low period in your life, and from now on you will gradually
climb to the most significant time in your life.
You should be looking to your personal and domestic life, for this is an area of great
responsibility for you now. Do not neglect it in a misguided attempt to get ahead in your
professional life. Make whatever changes are necessary so that this aspect of your life is
secure. Personal relationships may have broken up just before this time. Now you may have
the opportunity to make new ones that will fit your new lifestyle better.
You are on your way up again. The future depends upon the foundation that you lay now.
