The report was generated for 6 months starting from December 2013 with the following birth
data: male, born on 12 August 1949 at 9:50 pm in Glasgow, Scotland.
Your sun sign is Leo. This is the sign in which the Sun is in your birth chart. Your Ascendant
is in Pisces, and your Moon is in Aries.
Neptune opposition Mercury: An overactive imagination
Beginning of May 2013 until beginning of December 2015: Thinking and communication will be
problem areas in your life during this time. You are more subject to confusion at this time
than at any other, and it is a very dangerous time to make important decisions. Either you
misunderstand the circumstances that affect your decision, or you do not have all the facts.
It is also possible that someone has deceived you about the facts.
In communicating with others, be very careful that what you say is clear, and if you don't
understand what someone else says to you, clarify it to yourself. Misunderstanding others is
a great danger at this time and can lead to most unpleasant situations.
You are more than usually subject to strange ideas now. Be careful not to become obsessed by
delusions, for you will find it very difficult to tell what is a delusion and what is not.
The tried and true principles that have guided your life are more reliable than newer ones.
In business deals or any other buying or selling negotiations, be extremely careful, for you
can easily be deceived. Make sure that what you buy is exactly as it is represented, and
always be sure to get a guarantee when you make a purchase. If you are selling, be sure to
make some kind of contractual arrangement with the buyer.
Avoid getting involved in any scheme that you know to be dishonest. When it comes to
deceiving others, luck is not with you; the one who gets hurt will be you.
Uranus opposition Neptune: Higher dimensions
Mid-June 2013 until mid-February 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.
Jupiter square Neptune: False optimism
End of August 2013 until end 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 conjunction Mars: An exuberant time
End of August 2013 until end of April 2014: This is a very exuberant time, with high energies.
You feel physically strong and fit, and you are more willing to be active and take chances
than at other times. Vigorous physical activity is one of the best ways to use this energy,
which strengthens your body and allows you to accomplish more than usual.
Almost anything that you direct your energies to, especially an activity that requires a lot
of energy, will seem to flow and happen as if you were not making any effort at all. It is
important to realize, however, that you are in fact working quite hard; after this period, and
even during it to some extent, you will need to stop a while and rest. One of the problems at
this time is that because you don't realize how hard your body and mind are working, there is
a real danger that you will overwork yourself. Certainly, if you are not in excellent
physical condition you should not take up heavy physical work without preparing for it, but
that is just what you might do with this influence.
This is a good time to begin a new project, as long as you don't overextend yourself. You
have much more initiative than usual, and you can accomplish a great deal by yourself.
Working with others may be frustrating, because it is hard for you to put up with their slower
Often this influence is expressed through doing something that requires a magnificent sense of
timing or planning. Or you will do something that works out very well for you in the long
run. Even if it doesn't require great energy, it will pay great dividends in the future.
Saturn square Sun: Patience and perseverance
Mid-December 2013 until beginning of October 2014: This influence represents a time of
critical developments. Various factors in the outside world will challenge you strongly, and
it may seem difficult to maintain your freedom of action in whatever you are trying to do.
You may feel unusually discouraged at this time, because your vitality is at a low point. It
may be best not to struggle too hard against any adversity that comes into your life now.
Patience and perseverance will carry you through until your energy level is up again.
Authority figures may prove difficult to deal with. You may find that they are not receptive
to your plans or suggestions, that they resist your efforts. It is advisable to work
patiently to bring them around to your point of view. Don't withdraw from the confrontation,
but don't fight blindly. That would guarantee defeat.
This period of your life is directly linked to a time seven years ago, a time of new
beginnings for you. This time now is made especially difficult by the fact that many of these
projects have been going quite well, and the current difficulties seem totally unexpected.
However, this is a period of trial, which will demonstrate whether or not those new beginnings
were valid. Anything invalid is likely to fall by the wayside. You will probably regard it
as a failure. But you may not be aware right away that this is happening, especially if you
are not paying close attention.
Your ambitions may be thwarted now, but be patient and make sure you are on the right course.
If you are, this period will be a trial rather than a defeat. Even if it is a defeat, you can
still accomplish a great deal by transferring your energies to more productive areas.
Neptune opposition Saturn: A new perception
End of March 2014 until mid-January 2016: This is an extremely significant time, but it is not
usually very pleasant. During this period some aspect of your reality will be severely
challenged in such a way that you will not know for a time what is real and what is not. Your
sense of proportion will be distorted so that you place too much importance upon matters that
do not deserve such emphasis and perhaps ignore the matters that really are important. And
the matters that you are overemphasizing are those that make you afraid and fearful. In fact
the chief problem with this influence is that it produces fear and anxiety for no apparent
reason. With this influence you should always keep in mind the fact that things are almost
certainly not as bad as they look.
However, in spite of the fear and depression that often accompany this influence, a very
valuable change is taking place, and that is causing you to feel disoriented. Your perception
of reality is being radically altered so that you can experience a vaster, more unlimited
universe than you have ever known before. Exposure to this new perception triggers off your
subconscious fear reactions. If you discover that what you have believed no longer applies,
consider this an opportunity to find a larger truth. Don't wallow in fear - you will only
lose this opportunity for growth.
This is an extremely good time to begin psychotherapy or to explore one of the varieties of
human potential work. However, even in these areas you have to remain very flexible. Do not
simply accept a rigid new reality in place of the old one, for then it will work out just as
badly. Make whatever you encounter part of your new way of perceiving and experiencing the
Relationships that develop now may greatly challenge your concept of reality. You may
encounter someone who forces you to examine your world view and to defend it in a
confrontation with his or her view. This may not be a pleasant encounter, but it is valuable
to see how well you have thought out your position in life.
