Neptune conjunction MC: Lost on the way
End of March 2012 until end of January 2014: Very commonly this influence brings sudden
confusion to people who have had a pretty clear idea of what they want to do with their lives.
You may feel as if you have suddenly become lost, although the way had seemed very clear. If
possible, do not make any permanent decisions about your long-term direction during this time.
Among the problems you may encounter is a feeling that what you have been doing is inadequate.
You may feel that your public or social life is too restrictive, that you have to be too
concerned with ordinary mundane reality. You may suddenly be attracted to a wildly romantic,
idealized way of life that seems very plausible to you now, although later it will seem
ridiculous. You may be attracted to working with people in hospitals, charities or other
social-service institutions. This is a perfectly positive direction, but you should examine
your motives for doing this work.
During this period you may also be attracted to mystical and spiritual subjects, especially
philosophies of ego-denial and abandonment such as are taught in many Eastern sects. You may
be particularly attracted to a movement led by a charismatic guru-father figure. Little harm
is likely to come of this, and there may be great benefits, but do not make a permanent
commitment until this period is over.
If feelings of defeat and weariness arise during this transit, do not allow yourself to
succumb to them. You are no worse than what you have always been. You may discover that you
have been excessively concerned about yourself and made yourself too important, but you
shouldn't berate yourself for that. Everyone does it at some time. Meanwhile open yourself
up to the very splendid influences that can come into your life now and teach you much about
the nature of the cosmos. Much of what you learn now will later prove to be of permanent
Neptune square Uranus: Unpleasant revelations
Beginning of April 2012 until beginning of February 2014: During this time you will be subject
to sudden changes of mood, and your opinions on many matters will change suddenly as well.
You will be constantly exposed to other dimensions of reality that you may have long suspected
were important in your life but were reluctant to acknowledge. This effect can manifest
itself at many different levels. On the lowest level, it may simply indicate that something
you have been trying to keep secret from others will be revealed suddenly. If this happens,
it is just as well, because the secret was in some way limiting you and preventing you from
growing. Or a secret that someone else has kept from you may be revealed with the same
consequence. In either case your initial reaction is likely to be upset, not pleasure,
because you really don't want to deal with what is revealed. However, if you do deal with it,
your life will be greatly improved.
At another level, this influence will expose you to truths that you have never been willing to
recognize about the world in general. You may discover that some point of view you have held
is totally wrong. A person whom you had a definite opinion of, either positive or negative,
may be quite different from what you thought.
At yet another level, this influence can expose you to profound psychic and mystical
experiences, which also will upset you because they challenge your way of looking at the
world. However, you should be careful about getting really involved in the occult or other
spiritual-mystical fields. During this time you are likely to be too upset to handle the
knowledge you gain in any reasonable way. Do not attempt to place the insights you encounter
into any kind of system. Allow yourself time to assimilate the material spontaneously and
make it part of you. Then, after the effects of this influence have passed, you can begin to
study these matters systematically if you still want to.
Neptune trine Mars: Painless lessons
Mid-March 2013 until mid-January 2015: This is not a good time to strike out boldly into the
world to further your own interests. However, this influence does provide the opportunity to
learn certain very valuable lessons without suffering discouraging defeats.
During this time you will not feel inclined to assert yourself at other people's expense.
Instead you may wish to work to help others without any concern for your own advancement.
This is a good time for any kind of charitable work or for working with poor or otherwise
disadvantaged people. Similarly you may become involved with others in an organization
concerned with mystical or spiritual teaching. Whatever your area of interest, the main
consideration is that you work for knowledge and insight and to help others, not for your own
Do not be afraid that your life will lack fulfillment. You will find that ultimately all your
activities for and with others for a common purpose will be fulfilling. We often have an idea
that our own interests are somehow not consistent with those of others. But at this time you
will discover that your needs and desires are identical with other people's. In order to
learn this, you must get away from working solely for yourself. This influence will help you
Related to the above effect is a greater concern with metaphysical and spiritual truth. You
will become increasingly able to understand how you as an individual fit into the entire
universe. Your idea of who you are and what your individuality consists of will expand
Jupiter trine Venus: Pleasantly lazy
End of August 2013 until beginning of May 2014: You feel very light-hearted and sociable now
and want to spend as much time as possible with others. This is a good time for taking a
vacation, attending social gatherings, or participating in other forms of amusement and fun.
It is not conducive to any kind of serious effort, because you are inclined to feel pleasantly
lazy and unenterprising. There is also a very strong self-indulgent streak to this influence.
Be very careful not to eat or drink too much.
Fortunately you have the ability to make others feel good if they are unhappy or depressed,
and as a result, people enjoy being around you at this time. You may have the chance to do
favors for others that will eventually be returned. And since you feel generous and giving,
you will not mind doing them.
In some instances this influence has a way of drawing money or other material resources to
you. But don't sit around planning how to spend a sudden windfall from heaven, as many people
do with this influence. It is a possibility, but only one among many and not the most likely.
Actually it is more likely that you will spend money on objects that you consider beautiful.
Others may not appreciate your taste at this time, however, because it tends toward the flashy
or gaudy. Be careful that you don't get stuck with something that will offend your own taste
in a soberer moment.
You have a great desire for beauty, however, and if your taste is sound you will surround
yourself with objects that you can enjoy for years and that will also gain in value.
Jupiter trine Sun: A sense of humor
Beginning of September 2013 until mid-May 2014: 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.
Saturn conjunction Moon: Self-criticism
Beginning of January 2014 until mid-October 2014: During this time you will need to engage in
deep introspection, self-examination and self-criticism. Quite possibly you will feel lonely
and depressed. The way in which you handle this influence will have important consequences
later for your physical and psychological well-being.
This is a good time for self-searching, so long as you are not judgmental. It doesn't matter
whether you are good or bad according to your ideals. The real question is what you are.
This influence can help you find out. If you proceed from this point of view, it can be a
very constructive time, even though it may be experienced as painful.
During this time you may withdraw from others, have difficulty in relationships - especially
with women - experience depression and feel quite inferior to life's demands. The best way to
deal with this is not to take it all so seriously. Your perspective is warped, so that small
matters seem too important. Do not make final decisions about your emotional life now. Wait
until you can see more clearly what you have learned from this time.
If you have recently broken off a relationship it may be best to leave it that way. Do not
make a real effort to put it back together until this time is over.
