Jupiter square Sun: A matter of self-control
End of October 2014 until end of June 2015: This can be an excellent time, but you must watch
out for some pitfalls that could undo all the benefits. Basically this influence is a test of
your discipline and self-restraint. If you are not a restrained person, you will react to
this influence by going overboard in some way, overextending yourself or living in a fool's
paradise where you think nothing can go wrong. Or you might squander a valuable resource,
only to find on another day that you do not have enough of what you need. Sometimes there is
a feeling that luck will provide everything that you need without any effort on your part, but
this, too, is a false notion.
But this time can also provide a chance for real growth and expanded opportunities. It is a
matter of how much control you have over yourself. You have to know precisely where you are
and what your real needs are in order to take the most advantage of this time. You also have
to know when you can't handle anything more. Knowing when to stop is the real trick.
Sometimes this influence encourages ego inflation and excessive pride. Be careful not to act
in an overbearing manner, for you will set people in motion who will try to knock you down a
peg or two. Here too, you must know where to stop.
Under certain conditions this influence can trigger conflict with the law or with someone else
in a court of law. You may or may not lose, but don't act the role of outraged honor and
dignity. Try to find out exactly what the problem is and arrive at a solution that is
satisfactory to all.
Saturn conjunction Descendant: Relationships on trial
Mid-January 2015 until end of October 2015: This influence has two quite different meanings.
First of all, it can indicate a period in which intimate one-to-one relationships become an
area of great responsibility. Chief among these is your marriage or living with your partner,
but it also refers to close partnerships of any sort. You must pay close attention to these
relationships. Strains and tensions that have been developing in the recent past are likely
to surface now and must be dealt with immediately! Sometimes the only way to handle these
problems is to end the relationship, so this can be a time of great trial for a marriage.
Even under the best of circumstances you will have to work harder on partnerships and try to
solve as many problems as possible.
Related to this is another possible area of concern: namely, problems with people who oppose
your interests in various matters. Such people can range from outright enemies to those who
simply want to keep you in check for some reason. If this kind of problem arises, all you can
do is try to understand the person's motivation and do what you can to eliminate their reasons
for opposing you.
But aside from these two kinds of problems involving others, this influence means that at this
time you are making a significant breakthrough in your life.
For several years now you have been working quietly to get ahead and make new beginnings. Now
the work you have been doing is beginning to bear fruit and you will be acknowledged. In
fact, one of the reasons you are having conflict with enemies is that now you are really
beginning to get somewhere in life, which is likely to be threatening to others.
At any rate, now you are ready for the upward climb to attain your goals in life. This is a
very critical time, when you must work very carefully to get ahead. Do not take any shortcuts
to success that violate what you believe to be right.
Neptune trine Pluto: Strange compulsions
Beginning of April 2015 until end of January 2017: This influence quickens your interest in
the hidden psychological forces that are operating in your life. This can happen in several
First, you may become involved in a group or movement whose purpose is to expand consciousness
- for example, one of the various human-potential groups that are thriving today. You may not
feel satisfied with the way you have managed your life up till now, and you want to understand
and gain greater control of the strange compulsions that everyone experiences from time to
time, often with disastrous results. These compulsions are emotionally based drives that seem
to operate without any bidding from the conscious mind. They often make you behave in ways
that are not appropriate to the situation. Under this influence you will want to change this
aspect of your mind, so this is a good time to begin psychotherapy, if you feel that is the
best course to take.
Another effect of this influence is to create interest in mystical and occult subjects, again
with the aim of increasing your understanding of the universe and of yourself. You are not
interested in power over others, which attracts some people to these subjects, or in mystery
for its own sake. You are interested in learning what the deepest aspects of the universe can
teach you about self-mastery.
If you have already embarked on such a path, you may very well make a significant breakthrough
in your search now. Your soul-life may reach an intensity that you have never felt before,
increasing your understanding with totally unprecedented insights. But this knowledge will
not be abstract - it will transform your life and your ability to experience it.
Neptune square Mercury: A foggy view
Beginning of April 2015 until beginning of February 2017: The principal challenge of this
influence is to keep your thinking and communications straight within yourself and with regard
to others. The quality of your mind is being tested now, and any loose ends in your thinking
or attitudes will become a serious source of trouble. Any unclear ideas will become a source
of confusion to you in many aspects of your life.
Avoid making important decisions during this time, especially about your overall life
objectives. You probably are not seeing clearly enough to make intelligent decisions that
take into account all of the relevant factors. Similarly avoid business decisions if
possible, for buying and selling are not favored by this influence. You may be operating
under a misconception about the transactions, or your buying and selling may be influenced by
unconscious compulsions. It is also possible that the person you are dealing with is
The main problem with this influence is that it stimulates your imagination to the point that
you may spend too much time fantasizing. You may find it difficult to keep your attention
fixed on the real world, or you may become obsessed with strange ideas and fanciful beliefs,
especially religious and mystical notions.
This time may also bring on nervous problems, such as worrying about problems that don't
amount to anything. Don't let yourself become overwhelmed by imaginary fears or anxieties -
they are almost certainly not real.
Communications may be difficult at this time. Others may deceive you, and you may deceive
others, either intentionally or inadvertently. Certainly you should not misrepresent yourself
or anything else, because the deception may not succeed, which will undermine people's
confidence in you.
Uranus conjunction Venus: Less routine
End of April 2015 until end of March 2016: The effects of this influence are often quite
spectacular. You are likely to seek new freedom and excitement through your relationships.
You may even decide to break away from an old, steady marriage or other relationship and seek
a second youth through a new affair. But this is an extreme response which is by no means
inevitable, especially if your current relationship is basically sound. It is more likely
that you will change your existing relationships, sexual and otherwise, so that they are more
interesting and less routine. Every relationship, no matter how good, settles into behavior
patterns that kill spontaneity and make you both feel that you have little to offer each
other. In other words, you get bored. You can count on this influence to change the
The means by which you revive and renew a relationship will vary according to your temperament. If a relationship is quite unsatisfactory and you are naturally impulsive, you may respond in the "classic" manner by seeking a new love affair. If you are more conservative and also happier in an existing relationship, you will go through a period of tension that will lead you to reexamine the relationship and make necessary changes. If you are living with your partner and having problems now, a relationship counselor might be helpful. You need new ideas to enliven your relationship, which an outsider might be able to provide. Some couples create new arrangements under this influence, such as an open relationship, in which they allow relationships outside of their own. In this regard you must do what is appropriate for the two of you.
If you are not in a permanent relationship, you may become involved in a relationship that is completely different from anything you have experienced before. However, in this case, you should be aware that the excitement and newness of such a relationship may be a large factor in making it work, and when it becomes older and more routine it might not last.
If you are involved in an artistic activity, you will brim over with new ideas. This can be a very creative influence, although you may have to wait until it is over to integrate what you have learned into your regular techniques. Jupiter square Ascendant: On the lookout From 20 August 2015 until 29 August 2015: This is usually an excellent time for most kinds of relationships, but there are some pitfalls. Basically this influence signifies a desire to grow and advance through contacts with others. Probably you are willing to give as much as you get, although in some people this influence triggers a desire for advantages through others without giving anything in return. In fact as they get ahead, such people act arrogantly toward everyone, even those who helped them. This causes others to reject them, and when they hit hard times there is no one to help them out. But this result is totally unnecessary, and all you have to do to avoid it is to keep a sense of humility and recognize what others have done for you. With this influence you have the potential to become a truly better person, but only if you keep these warnings in mind. Quite frequently this influence brings a seemingly "lucky" chance through a friend or associate. But it is not luck so much as the fact that you are very sharply on the lookout for opportunities that can benefit you. Your sense of timing is very acute, and your sensitivity to others and their needs is greater than usual. That is one reason why it is so bad to ignore others' needs, because you don't even have the excuse of ignorance. Benefits can come to you in either your personal and domestic life or in your public life. There may be an opportunity to make money or to make improvements in your home that will make it much more pleasant. Or you may meet people who will help you learn more about the world and expand your view of it in various ways. You have to be willing to let this happen, however, which means you must be receptive. This is another area in which being arrogant brings the risk that you will get nothing of lasting value out of this period.
