Uranus square Neptune: Undesirable consequences
Mid-April 2013 until mid-March 2014: This period can be a severe test of your grip on reality.
It can be very confusing and cause you to be misled in a variety of ways. You may suddenly
find yourself in the grip of a total delusion that you believe to be the most real thing you
have ever encountered. It is very important that you consider very carefully any new idea or
philosophy before allowing it to take control of your life. One danger of this influence is
that you may allow some idea to control you.
At best, ideas and philosophies are devices that help you understand and make sense of the
confusion of everyday experience. But under this influence ideas may become a substitute for
experience, so that you begin to believe in things that you have never experienced. You will
be particularly attracted to ideas that help you avoid confrontations with the everyday world.
Sometimes this influence may cause you to turn to drugs, usually psychedelics or amphetamines,
which provide mystical-seeming experiences, rather than alcohol, barbiturates or opiates. But
this manifestation is likely only if you have a tendency in this direction anyway.
You may turn to the study of mystical disciplines in an effort to understand what is happening
to you. In itself this is not bad, but you will have to be very careful that such studies do
not totally alter your sense of proportion. It is best to expose yourself to these new ideas
gradually, so that you can integrate new understandings with old and thereby prevent this
energy from being disruptive.
If you live consistently and are willing to deal with the real world and handle its
challenges, this influence can open up aspects of reality that you have never dreamed of. It
can signify an enlightenment experience at some level. But if you try to avoid reality
altogether, this influence may bring about the state of unconsciousness you desire, but with
Jupiter conjunction Pluto: Self-betterment
From 21 May 2013 until 30 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 herself. 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
Uranus opposition Sun: Security vs. freedom
End of May 2013 until beginning 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 opposition Mars: In a big way
From 17 June 2013 until 26 June 2013: This is an extremely exuberant influence, which inclines
you to do everything in a big way. Your energy level is high, and you are ambitious in
everything that you do. You have a great need to expend physical energy, but be careful not
to act recklessly. Discipline and restraint are necessary, no matter what you do.
Do not overestimate your abilities, either to yourself or to others. You are capable of doing
quite a bit under this influence, so you don't have to exaggerate. It is especially important
not to kid yourself about your abilities, however, because you will genuinely try to do the
impossible and quite possibly exhaust yourself in the process. For the same reason, don't
take unnecessary chances. The feeling of omnipotence that this influence confers is not real,
at least not to the extent that you feel it.
Sometimes this influence can signify a conflict with another in which you try to break away
from the other's restrictions. It is difficult to say in general whether your estimate of the
facts is accurate, that is, whether the other person is really demanding too much or
restricting you too much. Therefore you must examine the issue very carefully before you act.
You have a great need to be self-assertive at this time, but be sure to reserve it for a
situation in which it can be constructive. Avoid acting upon impulse. It could get you into
On the other hand, this influence also confers real courage. The difference between courage
and foolhardiness is simple self-knowledge, which you must have in order to make this
influence work out positively. If you are cool and collected in what you do, this can be a
time of considerable triumph as you overcome obstacles and accomplish deeds that you usually
would feel incapable of. If you have to stand up for yourself, you can, and in a way that
makes further dealings with your opponents constructive rather than destructive. But this
will happen only if you keep your head.
Jupiter conjunction Neptune: A sense of compassion
Beginning of August 2013 until end of March 2014: 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 square Sun: A matter of self-control
Mid-August 2013 until mid-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.
