The report was generated for 6 months starting from January 2015 with the following birth
data: male, born on 29 April 1951 at 1:07 pm in Concord (Cabarrus County), North Carolina.
Your sun sign is Taurus. This is the sign in which the Sun is in your birth chart. Your
Ascendant is in Leo, and your Moon is in Aquarius.
Jupiter square Mars: Insight and skill
Mid-September 2014 until end of May 2015: This influence gives you a great deal of confidence
and makes you feel very self-assertive. Usually this is all right, but some people will
express this energy by becoming arrogant and domineering. Also be wary of overconfidence,
resulting in attempts to do things that are simply beyond you.
Intemperance in almost any activity could completely undo the basically positive nature of
this influence. Avoid exaggeration and try to maintain some sense of proportion. If you can
do all of this, you will be able to get more work done than usual, and you will do it well.
You will be able to accomplish things that you are usually afraid to tackle because you feel
inadequate, and you can take the initiative when you would otherwise wait for others to take
With care and planning and adequate restraint, this influence is a general sign of fortunately
timed action that takes advantage of the proper moment and makes the most of it. And this is
not luck on your part, but insight and skill. All of this requires preparation, however,
because impulsive actions at this time are not likely to be very effective.
It may be particularly important to placate persons in authority. If you act precipitately,
they may become alarmed and think of you as a threat, whether or not you intend to be. Of
course, if you do consciously intend to be a threat, this influence could be a help, assuming
again that you have planned carefully. But if you are not conscious of your intentions, you
may experience opposition from others without ever quite understanding why.
Jupiter conjunction Pluto: Self-betterment
Beginning of October 2014 until mid-June 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 square MC: Your actual abilities
End of October 2014 until beginning of July 2015: During this period you will try to achieve
something of significance in your public or social life. You will not find it sufficient to
continue as you have, and your ambition will become more powerful than usual. This can be
either good or bad in the long run, depending upon how you go about getting ahead. On the
positive side, this influence helps you overcome your previous limitations, which were caused
largely by fear and lack of confidence. Now you feel capable of greater achievements and
willing to work for them. This influence usually creates great optimism and self-confidence,
but you must be careful that it does not become overconfidence. Your life will not take care
of itself if you neglect the important details of daily existence. Do not let your seemingly
more important present concerns cause you to neglect these other aspects of your life.
But this influence can also signify an inflated ego, a state of mind in which you attribute to
yourself powers and talents far beyond your actual abilities. In rare and extreme cases, a
person may think of himself as godlike. But for most people this is expressed simply as
overestimation of one's talents. Be careful not to take on more than you can handle. There
is so much positive energy in this influence that it would be unfortunate to waste it with
pride, foolish arrogance and overestimation of your capabilities.
You want to be important now, and it is quite possible to attain that goal, but only if you
know yourself adequately. Dare to do more than you have ever done before, but balance your
daring with reason and care.
Saturn trine Jupiter: Enough foresight
End of December 2014 until mid-October 2015: This is a time of balance and order in your life.
You may have to work hard for financial gain, but at least your affairs are in order. Your
public or social life is well organized, and you should be making steady progress toward your
goals. The gains you make at this time are not strokes of luck, they are the solid results of
Your greatest asset at this time is that you can see clearly how various parts of your life
are working out. You understand the rules, and you are willing to play by them. Your
attitude toward life is pragmatic and practical. You are more than usually willing to accept
a situation as it is while working patiently to improve it. You are now in a position to make
important choices that will greatly affect your future.
People in authority can help you out now. At other times these people may have seemed to be
obstacles to your advancement, but now they are extremely willing to help. This is in part
because you make it clear that they will gain by helping you. You are much more capable now
of real give-and-take than you have been at other times.
Older persons may provide opportunities for real insight into your life. From the perspective
of their age, you can see how to improve your own life and help it grow.
This is a time to consolidate and buttress various aspects of your life. Make peace with the
difficult aspects of your life or with those people who are potential sources of trouble. In
the not-too-distant future it will be difficult to deal with the loose ends you leave now.
You have enough foresight now to see this and make the necessary adjustments.
Neptune sextile Sun: Selflessness
Beginning of March 2015 until end of December 2016: Under this influence, concern for others
in your immediate circle will become a much more important part of your life. You will begin
to realize the significance of friends and how important they are to you, and you will be less
interested in getting your own way with them. Concerned about their welfare, you are willing
to work for them if necessary. This belief may extend beyond your personal friends to groups
you are associated with. Group ideas and values may be more important to you than your own.
Spiritual concerns are also more important to you at this time than they have been before.
This may mean that you will become involved in an organized religion or one of the other cults
that have sprung up in recent times. Or you may travel on an individual spiritual path by
yourself, depending upon what is the most appropriate approach for you. At this time you are
able to devote your basic energies to transcending the limitations you have always accepted in
life. If you work toward this goal, you can achieve great understanding.
Under this influence you may work to assist people who are less fortunate than yourself or for
causes you believe in. If so, you may act very selflessly, without thought for your own
personal gain. It is not that you don't care about yourself but that you identify with the
goals of the people you are helping. You perceive that you are much more than the self within
your body, as you had thought in the past.
During this time you will be much more sensitive to the world around you, so it might be a
good idea to retire temporarily to a place where you can meditate upon your life in peace
unless your everyday environment provides this opportunity. You won't suffer terribly if you
cannot retire in this way, but you will not get the most benefit from this influence.
Uranus opposition Neptune: Higher dimensions
Beginning of April 2015 until beginning of March 2016: 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
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.
