Saturn trine MC: Checking your attitudes
Mid-November 2012 until end of August 2013: This time is usually characterized by self-
confidence and assurance. You are able to see where you are going now and to obtain help in
getting there. At the same time you are very concerned with knowing yourself on a deep inward
level, usually to facilitate achieving your ambition.
This is a time when you try to rely primarily on yourself. You will not refuse help from
others, but it is more desirable to go it alone or at least on your own. You need to prove
yourself to yourself and, to a lesser extent, to others. It is also necessary to establish
patterns in your life now that will lead to accomplishment later on. You must develop
disciplined work habits and learn specific ways to deal with situations that arise. Here too
you must rely on yourself, because you will be able to judge your effectiveness only if you
know that what you are doing is entirely your own.
Most people are rather conservative in their ways of doing things at this time. You may be
rather reluctant to experiment with new ways, but that is a pitfall. This should be a time
for making careful and considered changes. Such changes can be made voluntarily and without
much difficulty now, but later they will be forced upon you in a manner that may be quite
unpleasant. Getting into a rut now will ensure the survival of inappropriate behavior
patterns, which will create trouble later on.
You should specifically examine your attitudes toward authority figures, work and achievement,
responsibility, change and most important, although somewhat abstract, your attitude toward
reality. If you are trying to live by attitudes that you have been told to have and that are
not really yours, you will feel tense and uneasy when you think about them. Normally you
suppress these feelings because you consider it important to maintain your attitudes. But
these are the attitudes that have to be changed, because they signify that your thinking is
divided about that issue and that you cannot really put energy into making that part of your
Saturn opposition Venus: Adversities
Mid-November 2012 until end of August 2013: This influence often signifies a crisis in your
personal relationships. Love seems harder to come by, and you may cool off toward those who
used to be dear to you. Or they may cool off. This is a period of testing old relationships
to find out whether they can survive and make a contribution to your life. It is rather
difficult to establish new relationships, for this is a time for culminating the old, not
This influence indicates that your need for relationships is in strong conflict with your need
to feel like a distinct, separate and definite individual. Either you are such an
individualist in your relationships that others find it difficult to relate to you, or the
relationships smother your sense of individuality. You may feel very lonely even in the
presence of your loved ones, because a wall has been built up between you and them.
It is absolutely essential to reexamine your relationships at this time to determine exactly
your rights, duties and obligations and those of your partner. Probably you have been
trespassing upon each other's prerogatives, and the tension that this causes has led to your
One common manifestation of this influence is becoming involved in a relationship that makes
very heavy demands on you. Although you would rather not be involved in it, you find it
difficult to break out of. All you can do in this case is to persist and do whatever you have
to do. If you simply abandon this relationship, you will almost immediately encounter another
relationship like it, and another and another until you live one of them through.
This may also be a time of material and financial adversity. Here again you will have to
examine your past attitudes toward material resources and perhaps change your whole
orientation toward them. Try getting along with less; you may find that you need less than
you had thought.
Neptune trine MC: Feet on the ground
Beginning of April 2013 until beginning of February 2015: Under this influence you are likely
to deemphasize practical and material concerns in favor of spiritual understanding and truth.
And this can be a very positive thing, so long as you do not completely ignore the affairs of
the material world. You must remain connected with the practical world but keep it from
overwhelming your consciousness.
During this time you become more involved in service to others, perhaps on a personal level by
taking care of someone who is close to you or perhaps through an institution, where you help
take care of the poor or disadvantaged. You may have to take care of a sick friend or loved
On the other hand, you may change to a field of work in which social service is the goal.
Welfare or social work and nursing - particularly psychiatric nursing - are appropriate to
this influence. What happens is that you identify your personal gratification with service to
the larger social order. Personal reward or personal recognition for your efforts are not
important to you now, and you may be quite content to work behind the scenes.
On the negative side, your own ego drives are usually not very strong under this influence,
which is why you are able to engage in the kinds of work described above. But this means that
you may not stand up for your own valid interests or take adequate care of your own world.
Sometimes personal relationships suffer at times like this because you don't consider them
important enough. You think that they are only gratifying to you personally and are therefore
If that is the case, you are forgetting that you must take care of your personal needs, not
merely to gratify your ego, but also to make you a healthy and happy human being. Only if you
are happy and healthy can you be really effective. One cannot live on self-sacrifice forever,
and if you try, you are likely to become a depressing and joyless person. Those who are most
effective in helping society are also able to enjoy themselves.
Jupiter trine Moon: With little effort
From 17 May 2013 until 26 May 2013: Usually you will feel very good with this influence, quite
optimistic and generous. You will be concerned about the welfare of those around you and will
want to protect the people you love. At this time you will attract favorable circumstances
and resources with little effort, which will seem very pleasant now. But you should not
expect this to keep on happening indefinitely. In particular, people may come after you to
meet you for some reason, and these people could be quite beneficial to you in business or
personal affairs. Regardless of your own sex, you may very well benefit from women during
In some people this influence may stimulate an interest in religious and spiritual thought,
but your views would be more strongly concerned with ethics and morality than with a more
mystical approach to religion.
At the very least you can expect to feel quite good at this time, and even if nothing
tremendous comes out of it, you will have a feeling of satisfaction and of being at peace with
Jupiter square Jupiter: Impending shortages
From 21 May 2013 until 30 May 2013: With this influence it is very important that you keep
your affairs from getting out of hand. There is a strong tendency to excess, which may make
it impossible to keep up with whatever you are involved in, simply because it is more than you
can handle. Be particularly careful concerning financial matters, for you are likely to spend
without thinking, confident that there is an abundance of money or other resources to back you
up. You may not notice the pinch immediately, but shortly after this period you may
experience shortages that will be severely exacerbated if you spend money foolishly now.
But money is not the only area of concern. You may be overcommitted to projects that demand
more time than you really have. So in every area of your life, make sure that you really have
the time or resources to do what you have set out to do. Do not overestimate the resources at
If you avoid that pitfall, this can be a very fruitful influence, because it gives you more
confidence and optimism and allows you to undertake projects that you would ordinarily be
reluctant to take on. Also your basically positive attitude helps to ensure that your affairs
will turn out the way you want.
Under this influence some persons experience a kind of ego inflation in which they have
delusions of grandeur or overestimate their self-importance. This can lead to arrogant
behavior and inflated pride with little or no real substance behind it.
What this influence does is test your sense of proportion. You have to know what you really
can and cannot do and who you really are. Insofar as you fulfill those conditions, this
influence will give you apparent luck and greater power to achieve.
Jupiter conjunction Mars: An exuberant time
From 22 May 2013 until 31 May 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.
