ordered from Astrodienst as a bound report of about 15 - 20 pages.
In the short edition, only a few, but nevertheless important transits over your natal chart
are considered. It is likely however that some important transits of this six month period
have been omitted in this abbreviated report.
If you are interested in the full pattern of relevant themes, please order the full version of

The report was generated for 6 months starting from the 1st of February 2016 with the
following birth data: male, born on 21 May 1941 at 7:25 am in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Your sun sign is Gemini. This is the sign in which the Sun is in your birth chart. Your
Ascendant is in Cancer, and your Moon is in Aries.
In case you are wondering why you are addressed as Gemini in this report: If you had been born
1 hour 3 minutes earlier, you would be the preceding sign Taurus. The exact hour at which the
sun moves from one sign into the next is different every year.
Neptune square Venus: Unrealistic attitudes
End of May 2014 until end of December 2016: Unrealistic attitudes in personal relationships
may cause problems during this time, and you may experience disappointments that will
seriously affect your domestic life. You tend to avoid the truth about yourself and about
your relationships at this time, and your reluctance to deal with reality could set you up for
a very severe fall. This will undermine your self-confidence as well as the relationships.
Your sense of reality in relationships and your ability to accept others as they are is being
tested by this influence.
If a new potential lover comes along, you may be swept off your feet. You are not excited by
the reality of the person but by something within yourself that you are projecting upon the
other. When you finally learn the truth about the other person, you may have difficulty
accepting it, even though the truth is perfectly all right in itself.
A danger you should watch for especially with this influence is that of being attracted to an
unattainable person. You may be setting yourself up for a situation in which you cannot win.
The other person appears as an unrealizable dream, someone who is too far above you to be
attained. You have to recognize that your real objective here is avoiding an actual
encounter. If you play this as a dreamy kind of game, you are unlikely to do anyone,
including yourself, much harm. But if you take your "suffering" seriously, the resulting
sense of defeat may be quite harmful to you. Also, others may find your martyred role in love
very difficult to be around.
Relationships like these are often born of a feeling of inadequacy. By avoiding
confrontations with real people, you also avoid a confrontation with yourself, in which you
fear that you will be the loser. Yet a real confrontation is just what you need. If you
persist in one of these relationships after this period, you will have to confront both
yourself and your partner as real individuals. Whatever the outcome, this could be the most
valuable part of the relationship.
Neptune conjunction MC: Lost on the way
Mid-March 2015 until beginning of January 2017: 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
Jupiter square Mercury: Big plans
End of October 2015 until beginning of July 2016: This influence signifies increased mental
activity and a desire to communicate to others something that you consider important. Whether
or not your message is important, you probably think it is, so you should take the time to see
if that is true. There is no point in loading people up with your ideas and opinions unless
they are worth something. And when you speak to others at this time it is vital that you
listen to their response. For although you have big ideas and plans, there is a tendency now
to overlook details. You may be unwilling to listen to criticism, but if you listen and heed
what you are told, this can be an excellent time for making decisions, planning, negotiating
and concluding deals or agreements. But this will happen only if you listen to others'
This is usually a time of optimism and positive feelings. You have confidence in your ideas
and are able to get them across. Communications of all kinds are important to you; for
example, you may conceivably do some writing at this time.
It is also important not to overextend yourself. Make sure that your plans are no larger than
your ability to cope with them. Sometimes with this influence the pace can get pretty hectic,
because you have to handle many different affairs at once. This is when sloppy thinking can
become especially dangerous.
During this period you may encounter resistance to your ideas and opinions from a number of
sources. It is a good time to examine your ideas and see how well they really hold up in an
argument. It is a good time to change any views that do not hold up because you can easily
enlarge your viewpoint under this influence. You feel no need to be petty or quarrelsome, but
you do feel compelled to defend the ideas that are important to you. Any truly important
beliefs will hold up during this confrontation and become more a part of your basic mental
pattern than ever.
Jupiter trine Saturn: Clarity of intention
Mid-November 2015 until end of July 2016: During this time you can work patiently and slowly
to build something up. You are able to keep in mind your long-range goals while dealing with
all the everyday concerns that arise. Consequently the work that you undertake now is usually
very well done. You have an unusual understanding of the relationship between the parts and
This is an appropriate time to handle all manner of practical concerns. Your mind is
earthbound, but you don't lack vision and foresight. After you find the most practical
solution to any problem, you move immediately in that direction. Clarity of intention is one
of the strongest points of this influence.
During this time you will not want to be with other people especially. It is a good time to
go off by yourself and think things over so that you can arrive at the clearest idea of what
you want to do. But don't worry about feeling lonely. The seclusion will be good for you and
not at all unpleasant.
All your actions are governed by a strong sense of duty. You recognize the many
responsibilities that you have in the world, and you are willing to live up to them as best
you can. You may take a rather paternal attitude toward the people around you, wanting to
protect them and take on their troubles as your own. Be careful not to overdo this, however,
because even though you have good intentions, beyond a point you have no right to take over
people's lives. They must deal with their own problems.
Even if you encounter setbacks during this time, they are not likely to affect you seriously.
You will take them philosophically, cut your losses and move on to the next phase. You will
keep in mind where you want to go, and you will not be easily dissuaded from following your
Saturn square MC: An evaluation of goals
Beginning of December 2015 until end of August 2016: 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 make your personal life as satisfying as possible? Will you work collectively with many
other people or by yourself?
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.
Saturn opposition Mercury: Rigidity spells defeat
End of February 2016 until beginning of December 2016: At this time your ideas and plans may
be defeated, or they may have their greatest concrete realization. In either case, you will
run into considerable resistance from others to what you say. This may result in severing
relationships with those who disagree with you because there is no longer any communication
between you. Or it may result simply in the breakdown of communication that was once quite
Other people's resistance to your thinking is not intended solely to defeat you, although you
may think so. You may be tempted to give up if you are not secure in your thinking and plans.
But the resistance of others also forces you to give your plans clearer form and to take
definite steps to implement them. This takes hard work and much heavy thinking, but the
results can be quite good.
If your ideas cannot withstand the challenge or you do not have enough confidence to defend
them, this is likely to be a time of self-doubt and questioning. You will seek to find out
what is wrong with your ideas, and if you can be sufficiently detached, you may indeed find
out what is wrong. But if you just wallow in guilt, doubt and "being wrong," you will
accomplish little except to become depressed.
Although this is not an especially easy time, you shouldn't take a negative or pessimistic
view of matters. There are concrete challenges to be met, and you should use your energy to
recognize and meet them. Negative thinking is a form of self-indulgence that you cannot
afford at this time.
One factor of this influence may be causing you problems. If you have already allowed your
thinking to become too rigid and fixed, you will find it difficult to make occasional
necessary compromises when you are challenged. Even with the best ideas, a certain amount of
mental flexibility is necessary. Rigidity is almost certain to spell defeat, because the
forces that oppose you will become equally unbending and rigid.
