The report was generated for 6 months starting from August 2014 with the following birth data:
male, born on 8 April 1947 at 9:47 pm in Laredo, Texas.
Your sun sign is Aries. This is the sign in which the Sun is in your birth chart. Your
Ascendant is in Scorpio, and your Moon is also in Scorpio.
Saturn trine Mercury: Mental discipline
End of December 2013 until mid-October 2014: During this time your mind, point of view and
styles of thinking and communicating have reached a point of stability. You are quite secure
in them, for you know how and what you think about most things. This is not a time of change
but of preparing to use your mind. Consequently it is an excellent time for any task
requiring mental discipline and hard work, such as study, schooling or learning any new mental
discipline. It is not a very good time for activities requiring great inspiration, intuitive
insight and creativity. You will get results through hard work and scholarly methods, not
through "divinely" inspired insight.
This influence favors planning and organization of various aspects of your life. You have a
definite sense of order in mind, which you can make manifest in your life. This is a good
time to put your ideas into practice on the material level and to carry out long-standing
plans. If you have planned a project, this is a good time to do it.
With this influence there is a danger that you will let your ideas and opinions become too
rigid. It is important that your ideas acquire definite form and stability at this time,
because in the future they will be challenged very strongly. You must be reasonably definite
and sure of yourself in order to withstand the challenges. But rigidity will only make those
times worse, because your thinking will have to be flexible, no matter how certain you are now
that you are right.
At this time you have an unusual ability to see every intricate piece of a whole, and your
position on most matters is very clear. Consequently your critical ability is greater than
usual, and you can see instantly what is wrong in any situation. Just don't let this
degenerate into nit-picking.
Jupiter sextile Neptune: Easy come, easy go
From 23 August 2014 until 1 September 2014: This is a time when you are particularly concerned
with fulfilling your ideals in life, and you will formulate your eventual goals in very
idealistic terms. Also you are less concerned with the negative aspects of life at this time
and better able to appreciate its positive aspects. Just be sure that you don't adopt a
"Pollyanna" attitude toward the real problems of your life.
You don't feel that satisfying your own needs is as urgent as usual now. In general you want
to help others who are less fortunate than yourself. Helping others gives you a great sense
of personal fulfillment that outweighs any personal sacrifice you may have to make. For this
reason you may become involved in working with charities or other institutions that aid the
During this time your religious, philosophical and spiritual concerns are often great. You
have a strong drive to experience the higher aspects of existence, but this need may not be
satisfied by orthodox religions, so you may become involved in one of the mystical or
spiritual groups that flourish now. Or you may encounter an individual who can reveal
something of this aspect of the universe to you. In fact, the nature of this influence is
such that you will probably gain spiritual insight from those parts of your everyday world
that you take for granted.
On another level entirely, this influence can often signify a desire to gamble. Money that
you receive now can best be described as "easy come, easy go." But the danger here is that you
may invest or gamble on the basis of inflated expectations or a false belief that nothing can
go wrong for you. Unfortunately this is not true, so be as careful as you usually are.
Jupiter conjunction Pluto: Self-betterment
From 31 August 2014 until 10 September 2014: 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 trine Sun: A sense of humor
Beginning of October 2014 until mid-June 2015: This is such a pleasant influence that you may
be inclined to sit back, enjoy it and do nothing. However, this is really a very important
time in your life because you can reach out into new areas of life and have new and rewarding
experiences. Your creative potential is enormous at this time, and you can very easily
accomplish a great deal that would be difficult at other times. Your inner energies are
strong, and you are full of self-confidence and the feeling that you can do anything.
This influence usually indicates good health and a feeling of well-being, although you may be
inclined to put on weight if you are not careful. You may not feel inclined toward physical
activity, but it would be a good idea to get some exercise. Make a particular effort to be
outdoors. Hiking is a very beneficial activity at this time.
If you are inclined to physical activity, especially athletics, don't take foolish risks
through overconfidence. This influence tends to make you overestimate your energies.
This is an excellent time for all financial matters. You will feel like making your
surroundings appear more elegant, and you may spend quite a lot of money doing so. This is
perfectly fine, and you should think positively in all ways, but don't let this concern with
material acquisition blind you to some very real possibilities for inner growth.
Travel, either physically or mentally, often accompanies this influence. Take this time to
broaden your understanding of the world around you. You have a strong interest in ideas that
are different from what you normally know and encounter, and you are much more tolerant of
different ways of living. Even people's usually irritating traits do not bother you at this
time. Also your sense of humor is much greater than usual, and you can appreciate the dance
of life in all its glory.
Jupiter sextile Uranus: A favorable change
Mid-October 2014 until mid-June 2015: At this time you desire to make positive changes in your
life that will lead to greater knowledge and experience. While the energy of this influence
is not usually disruptive, it does make you impatient with the routine limitations under which
you normally live. You will probably try to make changes in your immediate environment in
order to deal with this impatience. It is also quite possible that the changes will occur
more or less spontaneously, with little effort on your part.
This influence can be mentally very exciting. You are attracted to new ideas that are
challenging in a positive way. Not only are you receptive to them, but you can grasp them
more easily than usual. Often under this influence you are able to solve difficult problems
in your life because you can approach them from a fresh perspective. You may develop an
interest in science or other technical disciplines.
Social reform is another area that you might be attracted to, feeling that the old solutions
are not adequate. Also, sudden opportunities may arise, such as a sudden financial gain that
will allow you to do much more than you have done before. This influence may also tempt you
to take chances with finances by speculating or gambling.
In a larger sense, it is difficult to say precisely what you can expect during this time
because the nature of this influence is so unpredictable. But you can expect some occurrence
that will materially alter your plans for the immediate future, and you can expect that it
will be a favorable change. Your immediate future is likely to have many more possibilities
than are apparent now.
Saturn conjunction Ascendant: Following through
From 8 November 2014 until 25 November 2014: This is one of the most significant times of your
life. During this time your responsibilities will increase considerably, and you will try to
eliminate everything in your life that is not necessary to fulfilling them. Therefore your
life will become more complex and simpler at the same time. You are finishing up certain
tasks in your life and going into a five- to eight-year period of relatively quiet preparation
for a new beginning. You will be cutting some elements out of your life and working hard to
During this time you may have less freedom of movement than usual because of the pressure of
circumstances and the need to get things done. Old tasks that have never been completed must
be finished now. This may not be a very light-hearted time, but it should be quite
productive. But do not start out on a completely new project, because in a few years you may
find that you do not have the material or psychological resources to complete it. Finish what
is unfinished and simplify your life.
Good relationships will not suffer appreciably during this time, but bad ones will break up
completely. You are withdrawing from everything in your life that is unnecessary or in the
way of your development during the next few years. Bad or difficult relationships may be
among the elements that are discarded.
Try to avoid building a wall between yourself and others, for this is a great danger now.
Duty, responsibility and obligations do not preclude personally satisfying relationships, even
though you may feel that they do. If you cut yourself off from others unnecessarily, you will
become lonely and depressed. The people who belong in your everyday life are very important
for you now, especially since you are excluding those who do not belong. Often it is good to
seek out the company and advice of older people, for they have the insight and understanding
