The report was generated for 6 months starting from December 2013 with the following birth
data: male, born on 4 October 1980 at 9:34 pm in Boston, Massachusetts.
Your sun sign is Libra. This is the sign in which the Sun is in your birth chart. Your
Ascendant is in Gemini, and your Moon is in Leo.
Pluto square Sun: Power struggles
End of February 2013 until end of December 2014: 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 in your profession, quite possibly 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
Mid-May 2013 until end of January 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 or your superiors or employers; 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
Neptune trine Mercury: Intellect and intuition
End of May 2013 until end of December 2015: This is one of the most imaginative periods of
your life in a positive way. Your mind will be able to create with unusual facility, but you
will still be able to distinguish between reality and the products of your imagination. If
you have ever wanted to write prose or poetry, this is the time to try, although success in
this area requires some indication of writing ability in the birth chart.
This influence signifies one of the few times in life when the rational intellect and the
intuitive and feeling functions are able to work as a team. For most people these two areas
of the mind usually operate at cross-purposes. But now they can cooperate, which is what
makes this such a fertile time.
Fortunately, the intuitive sensitivity stimulated by this influence extends to your
relationships with others. You understand what people are thinking with much less verbal
communication than usual, almost as if you can look into their minds and see what is happening
there. Consequently your efforts to communicate with others will be much more effective now.
Others will understand and appreciate the fact that you understand them.
You are likely to take an intellectual interest in metaphysical and spiritual subjects at this
time, and your innate psychic abilities may be manifested. But your approach to these
subjects is a bit different from most people's. You demand that spiritual matters make sense
to you intellectually as well as intuitively. You want to know, not merely to believe. But
your newly intuitive sensibility tells you that there are limits to understanding through
rational intellect. Your understanding of almost any subject is greatly heightened by this
If you are involved in any kind of teaching, this influence will be an invaluable aid. You
will be able to communicate what you know in such a way that others really understand the
subject and also your experience of it.
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 conjunction Uranus: Fundamental changes
End of January 2014 until beginning of November 2014: This is an extremely powerful influence,
for it represents powerful internal forces for change colliding with powerful resistance from
the external world. You are trying to escape the routine, dull and ordinary aspects of your
life. You try to find new things that will make your life more exciting and stimulating. But
with every effort of this kind, circumstances, duties and obligations seem to hold you back
and keep you stuck in an oppressive situation.
You may get to a point where the pressure is unbearable, and then you will make a sudden break
for freedom. You may suddenly leave a relationship, an oppressive job or your place of
residence, without warning anyone.
On the other hand, it may be possible to create a balance that enables you to sustain a great
deal of tension over a long period of time and accomplish a great many changes in a highly
structured way. Tasks of considerable difficulty are often accomplished under this influence,
and people make Herculean efforts that would otherwise be impossible for them. Serious study
and long-range projects requiring great concentration and effort can be undertaken.
Even though this may seem more productive, it really depends upon your situation. Very often
a sudden break with what feels like an oppressive situation will clear the air and allow you
to make a new and better beginning. On the other hand, it can cost you more than you are
willing to pay. But the patient, hard-working manifestation of this energy may create severe
mental and physical tensions, even to the point of physical illness. You have to decide what
you can handle realistically and determine for yourself the proper course of action. At this
time in your life you must make changes at the most fundamental levels. If you do not, in
approximately fourteen years the consequences of not making these changes will become very
obvious, and you will be confronted with the same issues again under more difficult
Saturn square MC: An evaluation of goals
Mid-February 2014 until mid-November 2014: This is a challenging time in your life. You will
have to make many choices about what areas of your life to emphasize. Will you work to build
up a new career or continue to build upon a current one? Will you work to make your personal
life as satisfying as possible? Will you work collectively with many other people or by
Often there is an "alienation crisis" with this influence, a sudden feeling of being cut off
from everyone else, as if you have spent too much energy pursuing purely personal goals. This
in turn generates loneliness and a feeling of being distant from others, even loved ones. Or
you may suddenly feel that you no longer have the strength to go on in the direction you have
chosen. Fears of your own inadequacies may distort your perspective. All of this is most
likely to happen if you have neglected personal relationships in your life. You cannot go on
forever without supportive emotional relationships, and you may have been trying to do so.
Sometimes this influence can have the opposite result, and you discover that various personal
entanglements have been interfering with the pursuit of your valid goals. In this case you
will break off relationships and gain the freedom to go your own way. The issue here is the
balance between personal relationships and advancement in life.
On another tack, this period can test your choice of goals. You may encounter opposition from
others that forces you to examine whether your goals are really valid for you. If they are,
the conflict with other persons or against trying circumstances will be useful. But if you
find that your heart is not really in the path you have chosen, you may have to make
adjustments and change your course of action. It is far better to do this now than several
years from now, when you may be overcommitted to an inappropriate course and discover that you
are trapped. Now is the time to change. It may not be pleasant, but it is possible.
