The report was generated for 6 months starting from December 2013 with the following birth
data: male, born on 16 September 1949 at 4:38 am in Hollywood, California.

Pluto trine Saturn: Toughening up
End of January 2013 until beginning of December 2014: 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.
Neptune trine Moon: A poetic cast
Beginning of March 2013 until end of December 2014: The main effect of this influence is to
increase your sensitivity to everything that happens around you, especially to the feelings
and moods of others, and even their thoughts to some extent. This is a strongly intuitive
influence. The "feelings" you get about a situation will be remarkably accurate. At the same
time you will be eager for experiences in which you can go past surface appearances right to
the very heart of the matter. And your increased sensitivity makes it easy to do this.
This influence especially arouses your compassion for other people's condition. You feel so
exquisitely and empathize so completely with people's problems that you want very much to get
involved in their lives and help them. This is a good thing to do, but first make sure that
they really want to be helped. This influence makes you aware of the intrinsic oneness of all
beings, an awareness you will want to demonstrate in your own life. It also arouses a kind of
idealized mother function within you, regardless of your sex, so that you want to protect and
nurture those in need. Again, be sure that they want to be nurtured. And don't get so
carried away with your idealistic feelings that you cannot relate to the actual conditions you
will have to deal with in helping others. If that happens you will accomplish little.
It is possible that this influence will bring you a very idealized and spiritualized love
relationship, even to the point that the two of you will not have a physical relationship.
You may prefer to remain platonic because it seems more pure and ideal. And although you are
idealizing, in the long run a relationship such as this is likely to be very helpful in your
Under any circumstances this influence will greatly stimulate your imagination and give it a
much more poetic cast. If you have any latent psychic ability, this influence will bring it
out. You are also likely to be much more interested in the occult, psychic studies and
Jupiter square Neptune: False optimism
End of August 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.
Jupiter square Mercury: Big plans
End of September 2013 until end of May 2014: This influence signifies increased mental
activity and a desire to communicate to others something that you consider important. Whether
or not your message is important, you probably think it is, so you should take the time to see
if that is true. There is no point in loading people up with your ideas and opinions unless
they are worth something. And when you speak to others at this time it is vital that you
listen to their response. For although you have big ideas and plans, there is a tendency now
to overlook details. You may be unwilling to listen to criticism, but if you listen and heed
what you are told, this can be an excellent time for making decisions, planning, negotiating
and concluding deals or agreements. But this will happen only if you listen to others'
This is usually a time of optimism and positive feelings. You have confidence in your ideas
and are able to get them across. Communications of all kinds are important to you; for
example, you may conceivably do some writing at this time.
It is also important not to overextend yourself. Make sure that your plans are no larger than
your ability to cope with them. Sometimes with this influence the pace can get pretty hectic,
because you have to handle many different affairs at once. This is when sloppy thinking can
become especially dangerous.
During this period you may encounter resistance to your ideas and opinions from a number of
sources. It is a good time to examine your ideas and see how well they really hold up in an
argument. It is a good time to change any views that do not hold up because you can easily
enlarge your viewpoint under this influence. You feel no need to be petty or quarrelsome, but
you do feel compelled to defend the ideas that are important to you. Any truly important
beliefs will hold up during this confrontation and become more a part of your basic mental
pattern than ever.
Saturn square Pluto: Shedding your skin
End of November 2013 until beginning of September 2014: This can be a difficult time in your
life. Because of circumstances and other people, you find it very difficult to make the
changes you would like to make in the world around you. For example, your ambitions may be
frustrated. People in authority may try to prevent you from accomplishing what you want.
Financially, you will probably have to curb expenses because you simply do not have the
resources. Sometimes the experience of this transit is much like struggling against chains
that hold you down. The temptation is to resist and struggle with all your might.
However, resisting is not the best way to handle this energy, because that would set in motion
destructive powers beyond your control. This influence is sometimes associated with violent
incidents, so take care. The best way to handle it is with some degree of detachment.
Understandably you will be quite upset with some of the obstacles that crop up now, but regard
them as a way of finding out which areas of your life are working and which are not. This
influence usually represents a call to eliminate the unnecessary and superfluous elements in
your life. It requires that you get rid of the dead and useless structures. If you do it
voluntarily, it will be easier.
When this period is over, you will emerge from the crisis considerably tougher than you were.
Conserve your resources, and if you are in financial difficulty, reorganize your life so that
you can get along with less.
Uranus opposition Neptune: Higher dimensions
Mid-April 2014 until mid-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 scrambled.
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.
