Neptune conjunction Venus: The beauty in everything
Mid-March 2016 until beginning of January 2018: This can be a fascinating time. It will
stimulate the idealistic side of your nature in a most beautiful way, and you will see beauty
in everything. For artistic and creative people this is one of the most powerful of all
influences. Your imagination will be more active than ever before, presenting you with
innumerable beautiful images to create from. Even if you are not especially artistic, this
influence will bring poetry, music and art into your life.
Relationships can be very difficult if you do not keep a clear head. This is the romantic
influence par excellence. You may fall madly in love with someone because she seems so
perfect and ideal, although the truth may be quite different. This influence does not
automatically mean a bad love relationship, and the object of your love may or may not be
worthwhile. That is not the point. Even if your loved one is worthwhile from a clear-headed
point of view, that is not what is attracting you. If you are lucky, when the fog lifts you
will find you have picked someone who is quite good for you. But you may have difficulty
accepting her faults, because you were so wrapped up in your ideal of perfection that you did
not notice them before.
One other theme during this time is the illusion that your only need in a relationship is to
make the other person happy. Sometimes people will carry this theme to the extent of seeking
out someone who is truly a loser in order to "save" him or her. A relationship with a sick
person, alcoholic or drug addict is a manifestation of this pattern. Be very careful to avoid
this tendency; when the influence is over you may find that you have committed yourself to a
very ungratifying situation.
Another situation may arise that is related in reverse, if you feel that you are the unworthy
person who needs to be saved. In this case you would seek out someone who could "save" you,
rather like falling in love with a guru figure. The problem with both of these manifestations
of this influence is that you are not relating to the other person as an independent equal.
Pluto square Sun: Power struggles
Beginning of April 2016 until end of November 2018: 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
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 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.
Jupiter conjunction Neptune: A sense of compassion
From 18 October 2016 until 27 October 2016: 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
From 26 October 2016 until 5 November 2016: 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. Jupiter opposition Sun: A turning point Beginning of December 2016 until mid-August 2017: This can be and usually is a very positive time. But you can make more or less out of it, depending upon how you handle it. In most ways it represents a period of culmination in your life, and you will be tempted to expand beyond any reasonable limit. There is no question that you have a good chance for success in any one of a number of endeavors at this time and, within reason, you should pursue them. However, you should not restrict yourself solely to material and physical growth now. Even if you don't have all the material goods that you want, you should turn your attention to spiritual and inner needs. Ultimately, nothing satisfies like satisfaction. Objects that you acquire, possessions, money, and even social prestige are merely devices to make you feel that you have satisfaction. They are not the state of satisfaction itself. It is your inner difficulties that make your life less than it could be, even if you have corresponding problems in the material world. You must look for the solutions within yourself, and this time represents a turning point, where you should begin to look for the answers. Under this influence, the tendency is to go after everything that you want in the material world without caring especially about whoever is in your way, to gather as much stuff as you can and indulge yourself in what you want. Then, as the influence subsides, you may feel that this effort has failed, leaving your life as empty as it was before. Do not be arrogant toward others or assume that you have everything right. Through meaningful encounters with others, especially intimate one-to-one encounters, you can find out which way you should go at this time. Work with another person and think in terms of mutual growth. By trying to achieve goals set by both of you and by trying to be a twosome, you each will become more conscious of what you are as an individual. If you can recognize the real meaning of this influence in terms of your own life, this can be an extremely productive and growth-oriented time, a period that will always have meaning for you. Jupiter trine Uranus: Split-second action Beginning of December 2016 until mid-August 2017: This influence gives you a strong need to express yourself by doing something that is different from your normal routine. You need to experience a new kind of freedom in your life and to discover dimensions of living that you have not known before. This may take the form of a search for inner truth on the metaphysical or philosophical level, or it may take the more external form of a new activity in your life. You are much more receptive to new ideas during this time, and you should be a bit careful about getting into something solely because it is a novelty. However, for the most part this desire for the new is constructive and will probably be quite good for you. This is an influence that prevents you in a positive way from getting into a rut. Sometimes this influence can denote a sudden opportunity or a piece of good luck that seems to come completely out of the blue and take you by surprise. Often it is a sudden change or an event that gives you a new chance in some way. It could be a sudden windfall or even a sudden chance encounter that works out to your benefit. If such an event occurs, take advantage of it. This is one of the few times when you shouldn't stop to ponder carefully before acting. Such a decision often requires split-second action. This is also one of the few influences that can be very lucky in gambling. But remember that it will have this effect only if you are reasonably fortunate in such matters anyway. If you are usually unlucky at gambling, this influence will probably not affect you positively. This influence also enables you to grasp new ideas quickly. You can learn subjects faster now than at other times, and you see very quickly the patterns in anything. On occasion this influence can signify a fortunate discovery or invention.
