The report was generated for 6 months starting from May 2013 with the following birth data:
male, born on 8 May 1940 at 1:25 pm in Teaneck, New Jersey.
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 Gemini.
Saturn opposition Saturn: A material peak
Mid-November 2012 until beginning of September 2013: If you did not clear away the structures
and patterns in your life that were working badly some seven years ago, this influence will be
quite difficult. The old failures that you have not handled properly in the last several
years will make your life exceedingly difficult now. However, everything that you have
handled well will reach a culmination and prove more fruitful than ever before.
If you are still active in your work life, you may reach a peak of success, which will be
accompanied by increased responsibility. In that case you will work extremely hard but very
successfully. On the other hand, you may receive abundant evidence that you are working in
the wrong area altogether. This would be manifested by extreme difficulties in your work
situation, such as finding your efforts blocked by coworkers or superiors. If your superiors
disapprove of your performance, you should completely reevaluate your work. Even if you are
doing good work, this may be a signal that the job is inadequate from your point of view.
This should not be an occasion for self-doubt and despair. Rest assured that you are supposed
to be doing something else.
In a similar way, relationships that were not straightened out several years ago will also
prove very difficult at this time and may very well break up completely.
If your affairs are working out positively, this influence represents a material peak in your
life. By this time you have made the impact upon others that you were supposed to make. It
is as if you have said to the world, "Here is what I am." Now, during the next fourteen years,
the world will reply, "And here are the consequences of what you are."
Jupiter square Neptune: False optimism
From 21 May 2013 until 30 May 2013: At this time you will work very hard to actualize your
ideals and find a concrete way to put your spiritual views into practice in the real world.
But you can expect the real world to put up some resistance to your ideas. Among other
things, you will be challenged to demonstrate that your ideals are not just irrelevant,
impractical abstractions. You will also have to demonstrate that your views are based on
realism rather than some dream world, which is where you may very well be now. At any rate,
this time will give you the opportunity to find out.
You will give readily when called upon now, because this influence signifies a great
generosity to people who are less fortunate than yourself. But you may not be very discreet
in choosing the people on whom you lavish your charity. Some people can be helped, and it
would be worthwhile to spend your time on them. But others are not worth wasting time on,
although with this influence you may not be able to tell the difference.
On another level, this influence can signify the kind of false optimism that makes you take
foolish risks, especially with limited resources. In any financial dealings be very careful
that everything is exactly as represented to you by others. Otherwise you could be taken for
This time is a test of your grasp of reality and your ability to translate ideals into
practice. There is no reason to assume that you will not pass the test, but you do have to be
Religious or spiritual delusions are another danger of this influence. You may be tempted to
run after false messiahs or teachers whose ability to dazzle with spiritual phrases exceeds
their ability to teach you how to cope with your life.
Jupiter conjunction Mars: An exuberant time
From 27 May 2013 until 5 June 2013: This is a very exuberant time, with high energies. You
feel physically strong and fit, and you are more willing to be active and take chances than at
other times. Vigorous physical activity is one of the best ways to use this energy, which
strengthens your body and allows you to accomplish more than usual.
Almost anything that you direct your energies to, especially an activity that requires a lot
of energy, will seem to flow and happen as if you were not making any effort at all. It is
important to realize, however, that you are in fact working quite hard; after this period, and
even during it to some extent, you will need to stop a while and rest. One of the problems at
this time is that because you don't realize how hard your body and mind are working, there is
a real danger that you will overwork yourself. Certainly, if you are not in excellent
physical condition you should not take up heavy physical work without preparing for it, but
that is just what you might do with this influence.
This is a good time to begin a new project, as long as you don't overextend yourself. You
have much more initiative than usual, and you can accomplish a great deal by yourself.
Working with others may be frustrating, because it is hard for you to put up with their slower
Often this influence is expressed through doing something that requires a magnificent sense of
timing or planning. Or you will do something that works out very well for you in the long
run. Even if it doesn't require great energy, it will pay great dividends in the future.
Jupiter sextile Jupiter: In good working order
From 14 June 2013 until 23 June 2013: This is a time of balance and equilibrium in your life,
when all your affairs seem to run smoothly and without much effort on your part. It is a time
when you can relax and take it easy for a while, knowing that your life is in good working
order. This is also a time when growth seems to occur without much effort - growth in
consciousness, in your social life or wherever you feel that personal growth is important.
But this is not really a time when you should just enjoy yourself. You should do that, to be
sure, but you should also be examining your life to see what needs to be done. It is
important to think this way now because the equilibrium that is characteristic of this period
enables you to look about yourself with reasonable calm and detachment. It is much harder to
achieve a perspective when you are in the middle of some major and possibly chaotic change.
This is a good time to achieve perspective in all possible senses of the word. It is a good
time for education, either formal or informal, for getting in touch with yourself through
self-awareness studies, or for seeing the larger world through travel.
Business transactions or negotiations are also favored now. Legal affairs also usually run
Jupiter sextile Ascendant: Efforts with friends
From 27 June 2013 until 6 July 2013: 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.
Jupiter conjunction Venus: Elegance and taste
From 28 June 2013 until 7 July 2013: 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
