Saturn square Jupiter: A current challenge
End of November 2012 until beginning of September 2013: During this time your opportunities
may be curtailed and your freedom of action may be quite limited. Restrictions seem to come
from nowhere, and you may have to work very hard just to maintain your accustomed level, let
alone improve it. This period can be quite unfavorable financially, especially if you have
not been very careful in recent years. It tests how well you have put your life together in
almost every area, but especially in matters related to finances and business. You may
discover that many aspects of your life cannot withstand real adversity.
Approximately seven years ago, many new activities began in your life. Now they are being
tested to see whether they have any real importance in your life. Anything that does not
withstand this test should be abandoned or substantially changed. It will be possible to hold
on to something that clearly does not work, in spite of opposition from others and
restrictions from your surroundings. And if you do that, after this time, it may appear to be
working out all right. But that is only because the current challenge is over. However, in
about seven years anything you have clung to will be tested again and will cause far more
trouble than it does now. In other words, if something isn't working now, let it go!
Typically this influence produces extreme restlessness. Your drive for freedom is
relentlessly curbed by the restrictions of this influence, and you feel very strongly that you
must break out of these restrictions. You may experience residence changes or the breakup of
personal relationships that seem to interfere unduly with your freedom. However these changes
are usually just hasty reactions to this influence. You would be much better off to calmly
evaluate what is and isn't working in your life and to consciously eliminate the elements that
do not work. Don't just react blindly because of frustration.
Saturn opposition Moon: An emotional trial
End of November 2012 until mid-September 2013: This is one of the most emotionally trying
influences. It is frequently associated with domestic or professional problems, emotional
depression, loneliness, difficulties with women or difficulties with personal relationships,
often leading to breakups.
This influence represents an "alienation crisis," that is, a crisis brought about by the
discovery that you have been neglecting your emotional and psychological needs. As a result
you feel alone and disconnected from others, like an alien in the world whom no one else can
ever adequately understand.
To a greater or lesser extent, everyone's life revolves around an overall task or purpose that
makes one's life unique. The purpose may be a job, motherhood, fatherhood, some movement that
you believe in or anything else that gives you a sense of purpose. Often an alienation crisis
occurs when you discover that you have gone too far too fast in pursuit of your life purpose
and have neglected your psychological and emotional needs. Perhaps you have neglected your
relationships or your domestic life, or you have repressed your feelings. In this way you
build up a wall between yourself and others, which makes you feel alone and alienated.
You must make your personal life and your public role or other central purpose work together.
That will require changing your lifestyle so that you can pay equal attention to both.
Jupiter conjunction Sun: Exuberant optimism
A transit approaching its end, 26 April 2013, remaining 6 May 2013: Traditionally this is
considered one of the most marvelous influences, and indeed it is quite good. At the very
least, you will feel good at this time. Your health is good, and you feel very optimistic.
For a while it may seem that everything is working out perfectly, and if you make an effort,
it will. But if you simply sit back and enjoy this time, its beneficent influence will pass
away with little to show for it afterward.
This is the beginning of a new twelve-year cycle of growth in your life. It is a time to
initiate new projects and expand your activities so that you can experience life from a
broader perspective. You may find that you can escape from some narrowing and inhibiting
circumstance that has prevented you from realizing your full potential as a human being.
Sometimes people travel under this configuration, but usually the traveling is more in the
This is a good time to study a subject that raises your consciousness or expands your view of
the world, and it is an excellent time for going back to school. You may also meet new people
who expose you to aspects of life that you have never known before. Your freedom will
Even with this influence there are some pitfalls. First of all, your exuberant optimism can
cause you to overdo or overreach yourself, so that when this time is over, you find yourself
out on the proverbial limb. Exercise a certain amount of restraint and build upon what you
have rather than trying to increase your holdings beyond your ability to handle them. Be
careful of extravagance, and if you invest money, remember that today's luck is not permanent.
Jupiter conjunction Neptune: A sense of compassion
A transit approaching its end, 27 April 2013, remaining 7 May 2013: During this time your
ideals will be aroused as they seldom are at other times, and you will approach life with a
greater sense of compassion. People who cannot help themselves will win your sympathy
especially, whether you encounter them personally or through working with others in a
charitable enterprise. Your primary concern is to help individuals by giving them a hand.
You may be less concerned with transforming the social order that has given rise to the
conditions that oppress the people you are dealing with.
Your interest in spiritual, religious and mystical philosophy is likely to grow at this time,
and you may become involved in a group that is studying these subjects. This world no longer
seems to meet your needs adequately, so you have to turn inward to find a world that can give
you what you really need. Here, too, you will discover that the ego's drives for self-
gratification and self-assertion may be the major factors in preventing you from getting what
you want out of life. At this time the demands of the ego must be quieted at least a little,
so you can hear what the inner self is really saying.
Unfortunately there is another side to this influence, which you should watch for. Some
people develop a feeling of false happiness, like living in the dream world of an opium
smoker, with no basis in reality. You may feel that everything is all right when it is not,
or you may feel that you can do anything you want and get away with it. That is why this
influence is often associated with gambling or taking risks with limited resources, often with
disastrous results. This is not a very good time for investments, not because you will
necessarily lose out, but because you just won't know for sure, and you will be tempted to
gamble even when it is a poor risk. For the same reason, in business deals be sure you are
not the victim of a massive misrepresentation.
With this influence it is best to avoid purely selfish concerns, for when your actions are
thus motivated you are most likely to encounter its negative side.
Jupiter conjunction Mercury: Foresight
From 16 May 2013 until 25 May 2013: At this time you are able to combine breadth of vision
with sharp perception and intellect, knowledge of the particular with knowledge of the
general, and thereby see the whole scope of anything you are involved in. This reveals itself
as foresight and long-range planning ability. This is a good time to map out your future,
because you can understand and interrelate all the elements that will affect your life.
At the same time, you feel optimistic and proceed with the belief that everything will come
out exactly as you want it to. And it probably will, because you don't get completely carried
away with grandiose thinking. This influence usually indicates a good balance between details
and generality in your thinking, but there is also a tendency to deemphasize the details and
not pay adequate attention to them. If you are not careful, this can result in sloppy or
hasty thinking. Be sure to slow down somewhat and do not get carried away with your plans.
Otherwise, this is an excellent time to make decisions or to conclude any kind of transaction.
It is a superb time to buy or sell, because you will almost certainly be satisfied with the
As your mind tries to expand, you will want to learn more and more. This is a good time for
returning to school, but even on a less formal level you will be anxious to learn. You may
even travel long distances with this aim in mind. Any dealings with the law should prove to
be quite fortunate for you now. You will prepare for such a confrontation skillfully, leaving
no loose ends to trip you up.
Communications with others are exceedingly fortunate under this influence. Your optimism and
positive state of mind bring you good news from others concerning matters of importance. At
the same time, everything that you say to others is very positive and reinforcing, which
leaves good feelings behind you wherever you go.
Uranus sextile Pluto: New birth
End of May 2013 until beginning of February 2015: This influence will bring about many far-
reaching but constructive changes in your life. You will encounter the deepest elements of
your own consciousness, and you will have an unprecedented opportunity to understand your
innermost workings. Therefore this is an excellent time for beginning psychotherapy or
becoming involved in any of the various human potential movements.
Your concerns at this time are not superficial ones. You will be concerned with the issues
that make your life what it is. Under this influence you have opportunities to make the most
fundamental and far-reaching changes in your life. Your values will change, as will your
objectives in life. At its deepest manifestation, this influence can signify a period of new
birth, especially if the last few years have been difficult.
You may become involved in occult studies, astrology and metaphysics at this time, and even if
you do not pursue these issues systematically, you will pay more attention to issues that they
Friendships may take on added significance now. A friend, possibly a new one, will be
instrumental in making you see what aspects of your life need to change and will help you make
