The report was generated for 6 months starting from October 2014 with the following birth
data: male, born on 6 October 1947 at 6:45 am in Boston, 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 Gemini.
Pluto square Sun: Power struggles
Mid-March 2013 until beginning of November 2015: 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
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
Uranus trine Pluto: Corrective changes
End of April 2014 until end of March 2015: This is a time of positive evolution in your life
that can lead you to a new and greater understanding of your inner being and how you relate to
other people. Under this influence you will be able to see what is wrong with your life and
to make corrective changes without great upset and pain. Your insight is enormously
heightened, aided by your willingness to learn. If you have ever felt that psychotherapy
would be helpful, this is the time to consider it, for you will benefit from it now. You
might also consider other techniques of consciousness expansion, such as are found in occult
studies, astrology, yoga and the various human potential movements.
You will be involved with what one theologian called matters of "ultimate concern," that is,
your life, its total meaning and how you fit into the universe as a whole. Therefore you will
also be attracted to systems of thought that deal with these concerns - religious and
spiritual movements or more unusual kinds of activity such as ceremonial magic. But in any
case you will not be satisfied to live at the superficial level that most people live at.
This influence will deepen your philosophical concerns, enrich your understanding of life and
give you the chance to make constructive changes that will make your life worthwhile later on.
Take advantage of this opportunity.
Jupiter conjunction Pluto: Self-betterment
Mid-September 2014 until end of May 2015: 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 himself. 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
Jupiter conjunction Saturn: A new freedom
Mid-October 2014 until end of June 2015: During this time you will confront your own
inhibitions and self-restrictions, as well as the restrictions placed upon you by
circumstances. You may wish to break free of them in order to enlarge your scope of activity,
so you can go to places and do things that you have never been able to do before. On the
other hand, you may choose to grow within the structure of restriction in your life, using
that very structure to enlarge your life. It can go either way, depending very much upon your
temperament. And neither way is better as a general rule. It depends entirely on what is
appropriate in terms of your own life.
If you respond by trying to break free, you will begin to feel very restless. Events and
circumstances will make it clear that you have neglected much that must be done, and the
structures of your life that have held you back will seem intolerable. You can no longer
accept barriers such as responsibilities that you have put up with for years, onerous duties
or perhaps a built-in fear of breaking away from the established order. Consequently, if you
react in this way, this is often a time of breaking away and leaping out into a new freedom.
This is often accompanied by a change of residence or the breakup of relationships. And
however catastrophic these changes seem to others, they are usually quite fortunate and allow
everything to work out for the best.
If you respond in the second manner, you will also seek to expand your life and find new
freedom, but for a variety of reasons you will not overthrow the structures of your life in
order to do so. Instead you will seize every opportunity to build new structures and expand
the already existing order. Whatever you build up now, either in yourself or in the outer
world, will be lasting.
Jupiter sextile Venus: The right moves
End of October 2014 until beginning of July 2015: This is a very pleasant influence, although
you may not feel it very strongly. But if you know it is coming, you can act in certain
advantageous ways during this period. However, you will have to take the initiative, which
you may not want to do, because one effect of this influence is to make you feel very
pleasantly unambitious. It may be difficult to rouse yourself to action. Therefore this is a
good time for a relaxing vacation or any other kind of good time that doesn't require much
This influence favors relationships, romantic and otherwise, because you are able to project
warmth and friendliness more easily than at other times. You are attracted to other people,
and they are attracted to you. Sometimes this influence can signify the beginning of a major
love relationship. At the very least you feel like flirting and drawing in people who are
If you have to make a good impression on someone, this is the time. You are much more able to
feel the subtle nuances of relationships, which helps you make the right moves. On top of
that, your feelings for other people are sincere, which they recognize and respect.
You will be attracted to pleasant and beautiful surroundings at this time and more than
usually repulsed by ugly and sordid conditions. You may very well feel compelled to do
something about such conditions if you encounter them now.
Financial affairs usually run quite well at this time. Money may come your way unexpectedly
and if so, you will probably be tempted to spend it on something frivolous. Follow your own
