The report was generated for 6 months starting from May 2013 with the following birth data:

Your sun sign is Taurus. This is the sign in which the Sun is in your birth chart. Your
Ascendant is in Virgo, and your Moon is in Scorpio.
Neptune conjunction Descendant: Beware of "experts"
End of March 2012 until end of January 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.
Uranus sextile Jupiter: An educational opportunity
End of April 2013 until end of March 2014: During this time you will have several
opportunities to expand your horizons and broaden the range of your experience. These may
arrive from several directions, but they all will make you understand more about your life and
let you see how it fits into the overall pattern of the universe. One manifestation of this
is a sudden educational opportunity, although not necessarily a regular school or college
situation. This influence can encompass many different types of educational experience. For
example, you might take up the study of astrology or other occult techniques of mind expansion
This influence can also present an opportunity for travel, but you should expect an exciting
rather than a relaxing trip. In the course of your travels some of your cherished ideas about
life may be upset, but that should not be too disturbing. One effect of this influence is to
make you want to change your views in order to experience life in a new and richer manner.
This influence can produce sudden runs of good luck. Taking chances at this time may pay off,
and long shots may come through. But don't take your luck for granted, for eventually this
time will pass, and you may not be so lucky in the future. Also, if you sit back and let this
influence bring you results without much effort on your part, this is a misuse of its creative
capabilities. Indeed, you should examine every "lucky" break to see what it can teach you
about how the universe works and how you can take advantage of it. Each piece of luck can
show you how you have needlessly accepted the limitations that were imposed on you in the
Personal growth and increased freedom of action are the two major consequences of this
influence, if you take the opportunity to make this a learning experience. Most people
recognize that hard times can be a learning experience, but it is more difficult to recognize
that you can learn from the good times also.
Jupiter conjunction Pluto: Self-betterment
From 15 May 2013 until 24 May 2013: 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 himself. 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 opposition Uranus: A need for newness
From 28 July 2013 until 7 August 2013: This influence signifies a desire to release yourself
from restrictions and obligations that you feel have limited your life unnecessarily. Often
it coincides with a sudden break from some limiting circumstance, such as a person, a duty or
simply a way of life. This need for newness in your life and for something different from the
daily routine is a powerful force, and it will be very difficult to continue as you have.
You will feel the breaking away itself as an enormous relief, a lessening of tension. For
this reason you must review your life very carefully to find out what needs to be overthrown
and what does not. The danger is that you will overthrow worthwhile things along with the
useless. Be careful of this, because it could substantially vitiate any advantage you gain
from your new freedom.
Relationships are especially affected by this influence, particularly those that obligate you
in some way. A partnership may be quite difficult to maintain during this time. And to add
to the confusion, it is sometimes your partner who wants out. This is an example of an
influence experienced in projected form; instead of putting out the energy yourself, you
encounter someone who is apparently doing it for you. In this case, do not attempt to hold on
to the other person, for that is the surest way to drive her away. Give your partner all the
freedom she needs, for you need it, too, although you are not as aware of it.
A related expression of this influence is encountering a person who seeks in some way to
liberate you from yourself or from some duty that you have voluntarily taken on. You may find
such a person irritating, but he or she is performing a valuable function in your life.
Again, the roles may be reversed, and you may set out to change someone else's life. The
point is that this is a valuable influence, even though it may be somewhat disruptive. It can
prevent your life from becoming so static and stabilized that you cease to be truly alive.
Jupiter conjunction Neptune: A sense of compassion
From 29 July 2013 until 7 August 2013: During this time your ideals will be aroused as they
seldom are at other times, and you will approach life with a greater sense of compassion.
People who cannot help themselves will win your sympathy especially, whether you encounter
them personally or through working with others in a charitable enterprise. Your primary
concern is to help individuals by giving them a hand. You may be less concerned with
transforming the social order that has given rise to the conditions that oppress the people
you are dealing with.
Your interest in spiritual, religious and mystical philosophy is likely to grow at this time,
and you may become involved in a group that is studying these subjects. This world no longer
seems to meet your needs adequately, so you have to turn inward to find a world that can give
you what you really need. Here, too, you will discover that the ego's drives for self-
gratification and self-assertion may be the major factors in preventing you from getting what
you want out of life. At this time the demands of the ego must be quieted at least a little,
so you can hear what the inner self is really saying.
Unfortunately there is another side to this influence, which you should watch for. Some
people develop a feeling of false happiness, like living in the dream world of an opium
smoker, with no basis in reality. You may feel that everything is all right when it is not,
or you may feel that you can do anything you want and get away with it. That is why this
influence is often associated with gambling or taking risks with limited resources, often with
disastrous results. This is not a very good time for investments, not because you will
necessarily lose out, but because you just won't know for sure, and you will be tempted to
gamble even when it is a poor risk. For the same reason, in business deals be sure you are
not the victim of a massive misrepresentation.
With this influence it is best to avoid purely selfish concerns, for when your actions are
thus motivated you are most likely to encounter its negative side.
Jupiter trine Saturn: Clarity of intention
End of August 2013 until end of April 2014: During this time you can work patiently and slowly
to build something up. You are able to keep in mind your long-range goals while dealing with
all the everyday concerns that arise. Consequently the work that you undertake now is usually
very well done. You have an unusual understanding of the relationship between the parts and
This is an appropriate time to handle all manner of practical concerns. Your mind is
earthbound, but you don't lack vision and foresight. After you find the most practical
solution to any problem, you move immediately in that direction. Clarity of intention is one
of the strongest points of this influence.
During this time you will not want to be with other people especially. It is a good time to
go off by yourself and think things over so that you can arrive at the clearest idea of what
you want to do. But don't worry about feeling lonely. The seclusion will be good for you and
not at all unpleasant.
All your actions are governed by a strong sense of duty. You recognize the many
responsibilities that you have in the world, and you are willing to live up to them as best
you can. You may take a rather paternal attitude toward the people around you, wanting to
protect them and take on their troubles as your own. Be careful not to overdo this, however,
because even though you have good intentions, beyond a point you have no right to take over
people's lives. They must deal with their own problems.
Even if you encounter setbacks during this time, they are not likely to affect you seriously.
You will take them philosophically, cut your losses and move on to the next phase. You will
keep in mind where you want to go, and you will not be easily dissuaded from following your
