The report was generated for 6 months starting from December 2013 with the following birth
data: male, born on 6 October 1944 at 11:25 am in Cambridge (Middlesex County), Massachusetts.
Your sun sign is Libra. This is the sign in which the Sun is in your birth chart. Your
Ascendant is in Sagittarius, and your Moon is in Gemini.
Neptune square Ascendant: Ego losses
Mid-May 2013 until mid-December 2015: At this time in your life your relationships with others
are likely to become confused and difficult. You may encounter persons who try to dissuade
you from a course of action that you have been committed to for years, with the result that
you become confused about the direction of your life. The other person's intentions in this
may be either good or bad.
This is not a good time to become involved in any kind of contractual or business
negotiations. Even if the people whom you are dealing with are completely honest - and with
this influence they may very well be dishonest - you will find it difficult to think clearly
about your own goals and objectives in the negotiations. As a result you will not get what
you want from the procedure.
On the metaphysical plane there is a lesson to be learned from this influence. The less
involved your ego is in a situation, the more freedom you will have to do what you want. By
bringing about a loss, this influence often shows us that our attachment to material objects
or to certain personal relationships has prevented us from being free. So it is not usually
the influence itself that causes losses or confusion, but your ego's relentless drive to
maintain the game it is playing. And this may be happening at your expense, when viewed from
a higher perspective. When your ego takes over in this way, you set your priorities
incorrectly, and you are not likely to be successful.
The strategy with this influence is to flow through it without any particular set plan of
action nor any special objective. Simply treat this time as a learning experience. If a
relationship doesn't work out, ask yourself why you got into it in the first place. If you
attract dishonest people or if your dishonesty has brought you trouble, ask yourself what
purpose this served in your life. Often you will discover that you were trying to protect
something that really wasn't worth protecting.
Uranus opposition Sun: Security vs. freedom
End of June 2013 until end of February 2015: During this time you should look for sudden
changes in your environment that challenge your expression as an individual and force you to
take a stand about what you really are. A sudden challenge in the outer world may force you
to take more responsibility for your life. Typical effects of this influence would include
sudden events concerning men; unexpected circumstances that force you to change your course of
action; sudden changes in a relationship, especially if you have not allowed self-expression
for yourself or your partner; and sudden changes in health, involving your heart and
circulatory system especially.
By this time you have built up a lifestyle that you consider valid and practically realizable.
Most adults by now have given up certain ideals and goals as impossible. You have probably
surrendered large parts of yourself as an accommodation with reality. The suppressed energies
from this source lie behind the manifestation of this influence. It demands that hidden
pressures be released, but you will probably feel that these events are happening to you
rather than that you are doing them. What is happening is the passing away of something that
has prevented you from being free. The trouble is that most people come to value security and
predictability over freedom of self-expression. Consequently this influence is frequently
Jupiter conjunction Saturn: A new freedom
Beginning of August 2013 until beginning of April 2014: During this time you will confront
your own inhibitions and self-restrictions, as well as the restrictions placed upon you by
circumstances. You may wish to break free of them in order to enlarge your scope of activity,
so you can go to places and do things that you have never been able to do before. On the
other hand, you may choose to grow within the structure of restriction in your life, using
that very structure to enlarge your life. It can go either way, depending very much upon your
temperament. And neither way is better as a general rule. It depends entirely on what is
appropriate in terms of your own life.
If you respond by trying to break free, you will begin to feel very restless. Events and
circumstances will make it clear that you have neglected much that must be done, and the
structures of your life that have held you back will seem intolerable. You can no longer
accept barriers such as responsibilities that you have put up with for years, onerous duties
or perhaps a built-in fear of breaking away from the established order. Consequently, if you
react in this way, this is often a time of breaking away and leaping out into a new freedom.
This is often accompanied by a change of residence or the breakup of relationships. And
however catastrophic these changes seem to others, they are usually quite fortunate and allow
everything to work out for the best.
If you respond in the second manner, you will also seek to expand your life and find new
freedom, but for a variety of reasons you will not overthrow the structures of your life in
order to do so. Instead you will seize every opportunity to build new structures and expand
the already existing order. Whatever you build up now, either in yourself or in the outer
world, will be lasting.
Jupiter square Sun: A matter of self-control
End of August 2013 until end of April 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.
Jupiter sextile Jupiter: In good working order
Beginning of September 2013 until beginning of May 2014: 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
Pluto square Sun: Power struggles
End of January 2014 until beginning of December 2015: This time is a test of your strength and
the energy with which you have established yourself in your world. The test may take many
forms, but in any form it will require that your sense of personhood be in reasonably good
shape; in other words, you should know who and what you are. If you do not really know
yourself, this time is likely to bring about crises that will cause major changes in your
One form that it may take is a test of your self-control as you try to get ahead in the world.
This influence stimulates your ambition and desire for power out of all proportion. If there
is a ruthless side to your personality that will do anything to destroy opposition, it will
come out now. But, at the same time, forces in your world will try very hard to stop you. To
overcome the forces arrayed against you, you will require extreme ruthlessness. On the other
hand, you may know precisely what you need to succeed and go after just that, being willing to
compromise and make your success also the success of others. This is the proper course to
take, but unfortunately this kind of accommodating spirit is not often found.
If you are of a more retiring disposition, you may experience this time quite differently.
Instead of being the person on a power trip, you may have to contend with someone else who is.
Here again you must determine exactly your rights and needs as an individual and stand up for
them. The problem here is not that you will overstep your bounds but that someone else will.
But you must fight or at least resist. Either of these power struggles is most likely to
occur with someone in authority.
This energy may also surface in the outer expression of your life. You may be surrounded by
conditions of breakdown and decay, which are an outward sign of the need to rebuild within.
Under extreme conditions, this influence can release its energy in a single explosive burst as
an injury or physical assault. Certainly you should avoid conflicts with others that may lead
to physical fighting, because the energies here are quite dangerous.
