Saturn conjunction Mercury: Thinking small
Mid-November 2012 until end of August 2013: This is a time of serious, heavy, even pessimistic
thinking. Communication with others becomes more significant, but also more difficult. In
fact this influence often means saying goodbye. You take life more seriously than usual and
look at things more seriously, but you run the risk of losing your sense of perspective.
Your mental and intellectual viewpoint is narrowed by this influence. You are likely to
concern yourself with a smaller range of ideas, but you are more likely to think about them
thoroughly. You are beginning a major new cycle of ideas and opinions, of communicating in
new ways. This consumes your mental energy and limits your ability to range over a large
number of topics. Also you root out old ideas and notions that have outlived their usefulness
in your life. Your mind is very disciplined, but with this discipline and narrowing of focus
there is the danger of thinking too narrowly. You may overlook important alternatives because
of your tendency to concentrate single-mindedly at this time. Also, with your tendency toward
depressed thoughts you may overlook possibilities that seem too idealistic or risky; probably
they are not at all - it is just that you are thinking "small."
Nevertheless this is an excellent time for working a single idea through completely, planning
very carefully and realizing ideas that can have important consequences many years from now.
When dealing with yourself and others, be careful that you do not become too concerned with an
unattainable perfection. One effect of the this influence can be to make you too exacting and
critical, with the result that you alienate others.
Uranus opposition Sun: Security vs. freedom
Mid-April 2013 until mid-March 2014: During this time you should look for sudden changes in
your environment that challenge your expression as an individual and force you to take a stand
about what you really are. A sudden challenge in the outer world may force you to take more
responsibility for your life. Typical effects of this influence would include sudden events
concerning men or your superiors or employers; unexpected circumstances that force you to
change your course of action; sudden changes in a relationship, especially if you have not
allowed self-expression for yourself or your partner; and sudden changes in health, involving
your heart and circulatory system especially.
By this time you have built up a lifestyle that you consider valid and practically realizable.
Most adults by now have given up certain ideals and goals as impossible. You have probably
surrendered large parts of yourself as an accommodation with reality. The suppressed energies
from this source lie behind the manifestation of this influence. It demands that hidden
pressures be released, but you will probably feel that these events are happening to you
rather than that you are doing them. What is happening is the passing away of something that
has prevented you from being free. The trouble is that most people come to value security and
predictability over freedom of self-expression. Consequently this influence is frequently
Neptune trine Ascendant: A spiritual cast
End of April 2013 until mid-February 2015: During this time your relationships take on a
spiritual cast, and you are much more inclined to idealize the people you meet. If a lover
comes into your life at this time, the relationship will be so romanticized that it will be in
great danger when you discover that the other person is not as perfect as you thought.
Overidealization in any relationship is a danger to be watched for with this influence.
There is also a strong tendency to get caught up in an ideal philosophy, a spiritualized world
view that is so abstract and removed from the real world that you are neither able nor willing
to function here. You may have a strong desire to escape and withdraw from the world, which
can be useful in some cases. If you are aware of this tendency and know that it is temporary,
you can make positive use of it. There are times when it is important to go off by yourself
and meditate upon the meaning of your life and what you are doing with it. The only problem
is that you probably cannot go off for the whole duration of this influence, because it
usually lasts more than a year. But for part of the time this might be a desirable plan of
A spiritual teacher or guide figure may enter your life at this time, and regardless of his or
her personal merits you are likely to learn something valuable from the encounter. That does
not mean that you should take everything you are told at face value. After this influence has
passed, you will be able to reevaluate what you have learned in the light of your own
intelligence and experience. At this time your ego drives are rather low, which makes you
less interested in questioning what someone tells you. You reflect very strongly on your own
failures and inadequacies, not destructively, but with the aim of improving yourself.
Your relationships are characterized by increased empathy and spiritual understanding of other
people's situations and needs.
Jupiter opposition Moon: The first move
From 13 June 2013 until 22 June 2013: This is a time when feelings and emotions play an
important part in your life, and relationships based on feelings and emotions become very
important. This influence is usually experienced positively as warm feelings within yourself
and from others. You feel emotionally very generous and giving. Relationships are usually
quite good and rewarding now, and those that you have been building up for years may begin to
produce results. You can now decide clearly which ones are worthwhile and which are not.
But there is a negative side to this influence also. It can make you feel very self-indulgent
and undisciplined. You may feel that the world "owes me a living," whether or not you really
deserve it. It may also make you feel that others ought to be breaking their back to help
you. In personal relationships, you may become very demanding without really offering
anything to your partner in return. Instead of reaching out to make things happen in your
life, you wait for others to make the first move and become quite angry when people insist
that you take some initiative.
Your love relationships and relations with women can be either very good or very bad, probably
not anywhere in the middle. It all depends upon your general reaction to this influence. If
you are demanding in the manner described above, then your relationships will be bad. But if
this influence arouses your feelings of warmth and generosity, they will be quite good. And
this is a good way of gauging where you are with this influence, because encounters with
others, especially women, will bring out its effects.
Jupiter conjunction Ascendant: Beware of airs
From 17 July 2013 until 26 July 2013: During this period you feel good and project warm
positive energies out into the world. This in turn affects your relationships very positively
and enables you to encounter people who can be good for you precisely because you are good for
them. In all personal and professional transactions with others you will give and receive in
Personal relationships expand under this influence. If you have been living in a relatively
small circle of friends and acquaintances, you will expand your circle and meet people whom
you wouldn't ordinarily, possibly including the rich and famous or people in power. Just be
careful that you don't become involved with these people for superficial reasons; make sure
that you can grow through them. The fact that a person is socially significant may not have
any relevance to your relationship.
The basis for all this is that in a very real sense you are growing and taking more and more
of the outer world into your personal sphere. You are trying to include more of the world in
your experience. Properly handled, this process can make you a much wiser and more mature
individual. Your view of life should expand, and you should become increasingly tolerant of
the wide differences among people in the world. You have the opportunity to become a man of
the world to a much greater extent.
At this time, you should be careful not to assume arrogant airs or to think that you are
better than you are. You are probably a fine person, but that does not mean that you are
necessarily better than everyone else. Think in terms of your personal growth, not in terms
of your status with respect to others.
Jupiter square Sun: A matter of self-control
Beginning of August 2013 until end of March 2014: 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.
