Neptune conjunction Jupiter: Wishes and reality
Beginning of March 2013 until end of December 2014: This is one of the most idealistic times
in your life. This influence arouses your natural sympathies for others and makes you want to
help them. You may help some person close to you who needs assistance, or you may work with
sick and disadvantaged persons in an institutional setting or with charities that aid such
This influence may also motivate you to work in some other way to actualize your ideals. Now
it is not enough to simply believe in something, you want to make your beliefs come true as
well. But you may tend to believe that what you want to be true is true, even when it isn't.
Do not get carried away by your idealism.
During this time you may also begin to take an interest in philosophy and religion. You are
very concerned now about how you fit into the universal order, and you are more inclined to
deal with abstract issues and how they relate to your life. In fact you may not want to
bother with the everyday aspects of life, feeling that they are beneath your concern.
Needless to say, that attitude can get you into trouble. Nevertheless, if you can keep track
of life's daily requirements, you will also be able to gain insights into your life that will
make it much more meaningful.
This influence can also give you a foolish confidence that anything you do will work out all
right. As a result you may take risks and gambles or actually indulge in gambling. This is
not an especially lucky or unlucky influence. All it does is make you confuse your wishes
with reality and make you act according to your wishes. It is not a good time to make long-
term investments, because you are seeing the world through rose-colored glasses and are
unwilling to look at business affairs in the cold, hard manner that is required.
Jupiter square Neptune: False optimism
Beginning of September 2013 until beginning of May 2014: 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.
Saturn opposition Sun: Low energies
End of December 2013 until mid-October 2014: This may be a very discouraging time. Your vital
energies are pretty low, and you may feel quite incapable of dealing with the adversities that
often accompany this influence.
These adversities may come from a number of sources. First of all, other people, particularly
persons in authority, may oppose your plans in several areas. This is not usually a good time
for successfully attaining your goals.
You may feel physically tired, as if the burdens of your life are too much for you. Quite
commonly during this time people feel old, and there is a profound sense of world-weariness.
Be careful of your health and conserve your energies.
Your ambitions may also be thwarted by circumstances or by other people. Even though you and
your associates have the best intentions for your future, something seems to block you.
It is possible that you may be caught in some kind of relationship, for example, a bad
marriage or love affair, that limits your self-expression. Quite frequently this influence
brings such relationships to an end.
This period is best dealt with by understanding that it is part of a natural cycle in your
life. Nothing is gained by fighting it; instead you must learn to flow with it. This
influence represents a period of endings which will be followed by new beginnings. The
problem is to avoid being discouraged and frustrated by the endings. Soon you will have the
opportunity to begin new projects that will build up to new peaks of achievement in about
Saturn conjunction Descendant: Relationships on trial
Beginning of January 2014 until mid-October 2014: This influence has two quite different
meanings. First of all, it can indicate a period in which intimate one-to-one relationships
become an area of great responsibility. Chief among these is your marriage or living with
your partner, but it also refers to close partnerships of any sort. You must pay close
attention to these relationships. Strains and tensions that have been developing in the
recent past are likely to surface now and must be dealt with immediately! Sometimes the only
way to handle these problems is to end the relationship, so this can be a time of great trial
for a marriage. Even under the best of circumstances you will have to work harder on
partnerships and try to solve as many problems as possible.
Related to this is another possible area of concern: namely, problems with people who oppose
your interests in various matters. Such people can range from outright enemies to those who
simply want to keep you in check for some reason. If this kind of problem arises, all you can
do is try to understand the person's motivation and do what you can to eliminate their reasons
for opposing you.
But aside from these two kinds of problems involving others, this influence means that at this
time you are making a significant breakthrough in your life.
For several years now you have been working quietly to get ahead and make new beginnings. Now
the work you have been doing is beginning to bear fruit and you will be acknowledged. In
fact, one of the reasons you are having conflict with enemies is that now you are really
beginning to get somewhere in life, which is likely to be threatening to others.
At any rate, now you are ready for the upward climb to attain your goals in life. This is a
very critical time, when you must work very carefully to get ahead. Do not take any shortcuts
to success that violate what you believe to be right.
Pluto trine Saturn: Toughening up
Beginning of January 2014 until mid-November 2015: At this time you will make gradual but very
profound changes in your life and create structures that will last a long time. You work at
this task with great patience and attention to detail, because you are not working for today
only. You are working for tomorrow as well.
This influence confers great endurance, which enables you to work slowly over a long period of
time to eliminate those elements of your life that have become unnecessary and limiting,
replacing them with structures that are more relevant to your present activities.
This is a period of slow but profound change within yourself also. Certain aspects of your
character are changing and taking on a form that will last for many years. This change may be
reflected in certain external changes in your public appearance or any other important
activity in your life.
You are likely to be very careful about everything that you do under this influence. Because
you try not to waste anything, the people around you may think you are excessively
conservative. But really you are just acting with great discipline.
Whether or not it is necessary, you are able now to get along with very little in the way of
material goods. And you have a phenomenal ability to contend with adversity if you have to.
This influence has the effect of toughening you up considerably.
A related effect is that persons in authority may give you considerable power to reorganize a
structure at some level. They are acknowledging your disciplined, orderly approach to every
task, which is characteristic of this influence.
Uranus opposition Neptune: Higher dimensions
Beginning of May 2014 until end of March 2015: How you will react to this influence will
depend upon how well you have learned certain of life's lessons. If you are extremely
materialistic and so caught up in the mundane concerns of daily life that you cannot see or
conceive of anything higher - whether it be a religion, a system of ideals or whatever - you
will experience this time as extremely confusing. Events will occur that simply do not fit
into your scheme, and you will become confused and perhaps act in ways that you consider very
unwise. You may suddenly start chasing after wild and impractical dreams, become involved
with persons who are very out of touch with reality and generally get your goals thoroughly
All of this arises because this influence exposes you to higher dimensions of existence, to a
world that doesn't work like the one you have been taught to see. Nevertheless this higher
world is real and important, in that it gives life meaning even though seemingly far removed
from it. If you have always frowned on idealistic notions of higher metaphysical dimensions,
this influence will confuse and upset you, because it reveals these dimensions to you. But if
you have learned that the universe does not stop with what you can see and feel with your
senses, this influence will allow you to experience profound revelations and understanding.
Your degree of enlightenment or confusion depends entirely upon how well prepared you are.
