The report was generated for 6 months starting from December 2013 with the following birth
data: male, born on 5 October 1951 at 6:51 am in Waltham, Massachusetts.
Your sun sign is Libra. This is the sign in which the Sun is in your birth chart. Your
Ascendant is also in Libra, and your Moon is in Sagittarius.
Pluto square Sun: Power struggles
Beginning of February 2013 until beginning of December 2014: This time is a test of your
strength and the energy with which you have established yourself in your world. The test may
take many forms, but in any form it will require that your sense of personhood be in
reasonably good shape; in other words, you should know who and what you are. If you do not
really know yourself, this time is likely to bring about crises that will cause major changes
in your life.
One form that it may take is a test of your self-control as you try to get ahead in the world.
This influence stimulates your ambition and desire for power out of all proportion. If there
is a ruthless side to your personality that will do anything to destroy opposition, it will
come out now. But, at the same time, forces in your world will try very hard to stop you. To
overcome the forces arrayed against you, you will require extreme ruthlessness. On the other
hand, you may know precisely what you need to succeed and go after just that, being willing to
compromise and make your success also the success of others. This is the proper course to
take, but unfortunately this kind of accommodating spirit is not often found.
If you are of a more retiring disposition, you may experience this time quite differently.
Instead of being the person on a power trip, you may have to contend with someone else who is.
Here again you must determine exactly your rights and needs as an individual and stand up for
them. The problem here is not that you will overstep your bounds but that someone else will.
But you must fight or at least resist. Either of these power struggles is most likely to
occur with someone in authority.
This energy may also surface in the outer expression of your life. You may be surrounded by
conditions of breakdown and decay, which are an outward sign of the need to rebuild within.
Under extreme conditions, this influence can release its energy in a single explosive burst as
an injury or physical assault. Certainly you should avoid conflicts with others that may lead
to physical fighting, because the energies here are quite dangerous.
Uranus opposition Sun: Security vs. freedom
Beginning of May 2013 until beginning of April 2014: 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 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.
Jupiter conjunction Uranus: A sudden windfall
End of August 2013 until end of April 2014: This is a time of surprises and sudden
opportunities. And you will strive now for a kind of freedom you have never known before. You
may throw over all kinds of responsibilities and try to recapture your lost youth.
The most negative aspect of this influence is reluctance to live up to your responsibilities.
Be careful that in your desire for freedom you do not let people down who are really counting
on you. On the other hand, you have to strike a balance between the demands that others make
on you and your need to be yourself.
At the same time, this influence arouses your idealism. You find it very hard to accept
sordid or unjust conditions, either in your personal surroundings or in the outer world. For
this reason you may become involved in a reform movement or group that works to change social
But this influence can work out in an entirely different manner. It may mean a sudden break
or opportunity from an entirely unexpected quarter - for example, a sudden windfall or a
sudden encounter with someone who proves to be beneficial to you. These are just a few of the
possibilities. It is difficult to say exactly which of these might occur, because this is a
very erratic influence.
Another effect of this influence is that it can open your eyes to new possibilities. Its
consciousness-expanding nature can help you see situations from a totally different angle, and
you may think of solutions to the problems that you have had to face. Often these will be
radical solutions that you would usually be afraid of, but this influence gives you the
confidence to try them.
Whatever the effects of this influence, you can expect a sudden broadening of the scope of
your life and the opportunity to encounter life from a new, richer and broader perspective.
This may come about through a major transforming event or through a series of minor ones that
collectively have a large impact.
Saturn square Pluto: Shedding your skin
End of December 2013 until mid-October 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 square Uranus: On a pivot
Beginning of April 2014 until beginning of March 2015: This influence signifies the changes
that take place as you approach old age. There is often a crisis associated with this period,
when you suddenly realize that you are getting old. Roughly twenty-one years ago you
confronted a crisis of reorientation. At that time you should have turned your attention
toward your inner values, those that were important to you alone. If you handled that time
properly, this period will not be especially upsetting. Your life as an individual will have
enough richness that you will know how to handle the years ahead.
A common problem for people approaching retirement is that they have no idea what to do with
their coming leisure time. All they know is their work, and when that ends, their life
effectively ends. This is the crisis presented by this influence. You must realize that the
richness of your life does not come only from your achievements in the outer world of business
and society, but also from what you know and understand about life.
