Neptune trine Uranus: Enlightening experience
End of March 2015 until end of January 2017: This influence will expose you to ways of looking
at the world that are quite different from any you have known before. The alternate states of
consciousness designated by this influence are not terrifying or confusing. Instead, you are
much more likely to experience a widening interest in the greater depths of the universe and
an increased ability to perceive them. Your intuition will be enormously heightened at this
time, and if you have any innate psychic talents, they will appear now. You will be
increasingly interested in the occult and astrology, and these disciplines will give you
understandings that you have never had before. It is quite likely that you will have an
enlightenment experience - a perception of your true place in the universe - on some level
that is meaningful to you.
Idealism is also part of your life now, but its nature is very abstract. You are much more
interested in philosophical truth and absolutes than in practical reforms in the world around
you. The exception to this is that you could become directly and practically involved with
the plight of the underprivileged. You might work to reform conditions in a hospital or other
Another consequence of this influence is that you may become involved with a religious or
spiritual movement that works for social reform - a movement motivated not by political
Pluto square Neptune: Individuality ignored
End of January 2016 until beginning of December 2017: During this time you will have to cope
with powerful outside forces that seem to take no regard of your individual ego. Your
individuality will not be challenged so much as ignored, unless you stand in the way of these
forces, in which case you may have some extremely discouraging experiences.
Elements of your life that you have always counted on may begin to pass away in ways that are
extremely difficult to understand. There will be no dramatic signs of social struggle and
change, but the old order is passing away. What may be most difficult to accept is that there
seems to be nothing that you can fight directly. It is as if many circumstances,
relationships, possessions and various other conditions of your life have lost their right to
be and are withering away. You can waste your time regretting this situation, thereby putting
yourself into the same position, or you can come to terms with the new world and become part
of it. This is one of the decisions you will have to make, although probably your internal
conditioning will determine your decision in advance.
Another side of this influence is that hidden aspects of your unconscious mind may flare up
and begin to influence your life now. Elements of your personality that you prefer to keep
hidden from others may become so evident that you can no longer avoid them.
The only solution, therefore, is to deal with them. They are probably not as bad as you think
anyway. It is not their intrinsic nature but repression that makes them seem bad. Now you
must throw away the past conditioning that makes you reject these perfectly valid aspects of
Jupiter square Uranus: Negatively suggestible
From 19 October 2016 until 28 October 2016: The effects of this influence can vary
considerably. On the one hand, it can indicate a "bolt out of the blue" lucky chance or
change in fortune, a sudden opportunity that significantly changes your life. But on the
other hand, it can indicate such restlessness and impatience with restrictions that you create
a major disturbance in your life in your efforts to become free.
Under any circumstances you are likely, rightly or wrongly, to see change as the only way to
get ahead, and to a certain extent this is always true. But the danger here is that you will
seek change for its own sake and not take the time to examine carefully which changes will be
most effective. There is a strong tendency to be negatively suggestible, that is, to always
go in the opposite direction from any pressure.
Freedom in general is very important to you at this time, and you will work very hard to get
it in some area. In relationships, this can be disruptive because you are likely to be
hostile toward anything that keeps you "in line." Also this influence can signify a time of
constant change, when you cannot tell from one day to the next what you are going to do.
But opportunity will probably come, if you can maintain a certain degree of restraint without
putting yourself into such a straitjacket that you cannot move when the opportunity presents
itself. You do in fact need freedom from something at this time, and you will probably get
exactly what and how much you need, as long as you avoid moving so quickly and impulsively
that you ruin your chances for creative change. If you remain calm, you will suddenly see and
be able to take an opportunity to get ahead or to become free from restriction. Be patient,
and you will discover that not much more patience is required.
Jupiter conjunction Sun: Exuberant optimism
From 30 October 2016 until 9 November 2016: 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
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
End of November 2016 until beginning of August 2017: 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 sextile Pluto: Your inner essence
Mid-December 2016 until end of August 2017: This is a time for making creative changes in your
life, for reforming and remolding your immediate surroundings so that they can better express
your inner essence. It is a time when you will exert considerable energy in order to gain
greater freedom of movement in all your activities. You may have the opportunity to gain
power over others, but if so, you should use this power to achieve what you and those around
you collectively need. Do not use it for purely selfish purposes, for this is not so likely
to work to your advantage.
If you gain power to lead others in any capacity, you must have the highest ideals in mind.
This influence symbolizes regeneration to a higher plane of existence, and although it may
express itself on several different levels, you should always keep this basic idea in mind.
Changes may occur spontaneously in the world around you with little or no effort on your part. Take advantage of them, for they will work toward your ends even though you did not originally intend that. You may come into favor with someone in power at this time. Sometimes a "regeneration" theme is expressed through religious or spiritual rebirth, through understanding the deeper significance of your life and having it transform your being. And you will do what you can to share your learning with others. Sharing everything that comes to you at this time is very important to you. Either this influence will transform you by transforming your surroundings, or you will become the vehicle through which your world is transformed. Either way, you are transformed along with your friends, neighbors and your everyday environment.
