The report was generated for 6 months starting from December 2013 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 Neptune: Higher dimensions
Mid-April 2013 until mid-March 2014: 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.
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
Jupiter square Neptune: False optimism
Beginning of August 2013 until beginning of April 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 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.
Saturn square Saturn: Soul-searching
Mid-December 2013 until beginning of October 2014: This is a critical period in which several
aspects of your life and experience will be tested, especially those that began to be
important about seven years ago. Most often this influence is experienced as a sort of
identity crisis in which you begin to question what you are doing. You may suffer a crisis of
confidence at this time, fearing that you have made the wrong moves in life or committed
yourself to some course of action that will not be good in the long run. During this period
you will think about and question all the long-term trends in your life. You will not be
thinking about trivial matters.
Sometimes a particular event triggers off this period of soul-searching. Others may create
difficulties for you, especially in your public and social life. Perhaps they detect the
first signs of insecurity that will afflict you during this period. If they are people who
naturally compete with you, they may try to take advantage of your apparent weakness. People
in authority may also sense your feelings of insecurity.
You must recognize that some aspects of your life need to be questioned at this time. But
don't stand in one spot quivering about your life. Examine it and make whatever changes are
possible and seem appropriate. Any project you started seven years ago or any new aspect of
yourself that first surfaced then that is truly worth continuing will still be worthwhile
after this period. This is a time of testing, and anything that withstands the test will be
better for it. Things that do not pass the test are well got rid of. Shortly you will enter
a period of stability and fruitfulness that will justify the events that take place now. In
fact, if you are truly conscious of your life and your objectives, you will not undergo a real
crisis at all. You will only go through a period of examining what is working and what is
not. Your difficulties with the outer world at this time are signals about what you should be
