The report was generated for 6 months starting from December 2013 with the following birth
data: male, born on 17 May 1973 at 1:18 pm in Palm Springs, California.
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 Sagittarius.
Neptune square Moon: Mirages
End of April 2012 until mid-February 2014: Under this influence you may have to contend with
rather strange moods and feelings. You may feel that your hunches are extremely accurate, but
be careful - the language of your unconscious mind, which is speaking rather strongly to you
now, is very different from the language of the conscious mind. Your hunches may mislead you.
At the same time, you are more subject to outside influences now. If you are around an angry
person or someone under the influence of any other intense feeling, you will feel their energy
strongly. For this reason, you should avoid people who are under the influence of strong
negative emotions. Your empathy is so great that you will easily become subject to their
feelings. And avoid anyone who tries to control your thinking through subtle suggestions and
hints, which is very likely to happen, because the thoughts they instill will seem to come
from within you - another good reason for avoiding negative people.
There may be other problems in your home or personal life or with emotional relationships. It
is extremely important that you try to communicate with those around you as clearly as
possible. Misunderstandings are rife under this influence. You may begin a love relationship
that is hopelessly unrealistic and yet very fascinating.
Moods and emotions may appear and disappear with great speed. Do not take them too seriously
or get too wrapped up in contemplating them, for you will only make mountains out of
molehills. Even when you are disappointed about something, do not dwell on it. Your own
negative emotions can be very destructive.
Neptune square Neptune: Self-scrutiny
End of May 2013 until end of 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.
Saturn opposition Mercury: Rigidity spells defeat
Beginning of February 2014 until beginning of November 2014: At this time your ideas and plans
may be defeated, or they may have their greatest concrete realization. In either case, you
will run into considerable resistance from others to what you say. This may result in
severing relationships with those who disagree with you because there is no longer any
communication between you. Or it may result simply in the breakdown of communication that was
once quite good.
Other people's resistance to your thinking is not intended solely to defeat you, although you
may think so. You may be tempted to give up if you are not secure in your thinking and plans.
But the resistance of others also forces you to give your plans clearer form and to take
definite steps to implement them. This takes hard work and much heavy thinking, but the
results can be quite good.
If your ideas cannot withstand the challenge or you do not have enough confidence to defend
them, this is likely to be a time of self-doubt and questioning. You will seek to find out
what is wrong with your ideas, and if you can be sufficiently detached, you may indeed find
out what is wrong. But if you just wallow in guilt, doubt and "being wrong," you will
accomplish little except to become depressed.
Although this is not an especially easy time, you shouldn't take a negative or pessimistic
view of matters. There are concrete challenges to be met, and you should use your energy to
recognize and meet them. Negative thinking is a form of self-indulgence that you cannot
afford at this time.
One factor of this influence may be causing you problems. If you have already allowed your
thinking to become too rigid and fixed, you will find it difficult to make occasional
necessary compromises when you are challenged. Even with the best ideas, a certain amount of
mental flexibility is necessary. Rigidity is almost certain to spell defeat, because the
forces that oppose you will become equally unbending and rigid.
Neptune square Venus: Unrealistic attitudes
Mid-March 2014 until beginning of January 2016: Unrealistic attitudes in personal
relationships may cause problems during this time, and you may experience disappointments that
will seriously affect your domestic life. You tend to avoid the truth about yourself and
about your relationships at this time, and your reluctance to deal with reality could set you
up for a very severe fall. This will undermine your self-confidence as well as the
relationships. Your sense of reality in relationships and your ability to accept others as
they are is being tested by this influence.
If a new potential lover comes along, you may be swept off your feet. You are not excited by
the reality of the person but by something within yourself that you are projecting upon the
other. When you finally learn the truth about the other person, you may have difficulty
accepting it, even though the truth is perfectly all right in itself.
A danger you should watch for especially with this influence is that of being attracted to an
unattainable person. You may be setting yourself up for a situation in which you cannot win.
The other person appears as an unrealizable dream, someone who is too far above you to be
attained. You have to recognize that your real objective here is avoiding an actual
encounter. If you play this as a dreamy kind of game, you are unlikely to do anyone,
including yourself, much harm. But if you take your "suffering" seriously, the resulting
sense of defeat may be quite harmful to you. Also, others may find your martyred role in love
very difficult to be around.
Relationships like these are often born of a feeling of inadequacy. By avoiding
confrontations with real people, you also avoid a confrontation with yourself, in which you
fear that you will be the loser. Yet a real confrontation is just what you need. If you
persist in one of these relationships after this period, you will have to confront both
yourself and your partner as real individuals. Whatever the outcome, this could be the most
valuable part of the relationship.
Neptune conjunction Mars: Half-hearted efforts
Mid-March 2014 until mid-January 2016: This is not a good time to strike out to further your
own self-interest in life. Your energy level is low, and you are subject to fits of
discouragement and malaise. Whatever you do along these lines - working to get ahead in your
job, beginning a new enterprise or embarking on a program of vigorous mental or physical
activity - this influence will make it difficult for you to succeed. It is not that you are
unlucky exactly but that you don't have enough push to follow through. Under this influence
your efforts are likely to be half-hearted. Even if you want to do something, you may just
feel too tired.
Another side of this influence is that you may get involved in an activity or project that is
dishonest, misrepresented or simply subversive, although not necessarily politically. You may
not be aware that it is dishonest, but if you are and choose to be involved anyway, you are
running an enormous risk. Avoid any scheme that you know to be dishonest, because during this
time you simply cannot count on it coming out favorably for you.
This is not a good time to advance yourself, but try not to get discouraged, for that will not
help you. Instead, cut your losses and disengage yourself if possible from any activity that
could create difficulties. Get into a position where you can afford to be unconcerned about
results. Detaching yourself from your own energies is the best way to deal with this
influence. Act because you enjoy the action, not because you are trying to win. If you can
take this course of detached consciousness, you may learn something about how your life works;
in fact, you may learn that your own efforts have fouled you up. In your eagerness to
succeed, you may have aroused opposition that was not expressed openly, but waited
subversively in the wings to trip you up.
Neptune conjunction Descendant: Beware of "experts"
Beginning of April 2014 until beginning of February 2016: 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.
