The report was generated for 6 months starting from September 2014 with the following birth
data: male, born on 3 October 1954 at 10:05 pm in Brooklyn (Kings County), New York.
Your sun sign is Libra. This is the sign in which the Sun is in your birth chart. Your
Ascendant is in Cancer, and your Moon is in Sagittarius.
Pluto square Sun: Power struggles
Mid-March 2012 until end of October 2014: 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 life.
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 in your profession, quite possibly 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.
Neptune trine Mercury: Intellect and intuition
Mid-April 2013 until mid-February 2015: This is one of the most imaginative periods of your
life in a positive way. Your mind will be able to create with unusual facility, but you will
still be able to distinguish between reality and the products of your imagination. If you
have ever wanted to write prose or poetry, this is the time to try, although success in this
area requires some indication of writing ability in the birth chart.
This influence signifies one of the few times in life when the rational intellect and the
intuitive and feeling functions are able to work as a team. For most people these two areas
of the mind usually operate at cross-purposes. But now they can cooperate, which is what
makes this such a fertile time.
Fortunately, the intuitive sensitivity stimulated by this influence extends to your
relationships with others. You understand what people are thinking with much less verbal
communication than usual, almost as if you can look into their minds and see what is happening
there. Consequently your efforts to communicate with others will be much more effective now.
Others will understand and appreciate the fact that you understand them.
You are likely to take an intellectual interest in metaphysical and spiritual subjects at this
time, and your innate psychic abilities may be manifested. But your approach to these
subjects is a bit different from most people's. You demand that spiritual matters make sense
to you intellectually as well as intuitively. You want to know, not merely to believe. But
your newly intuitive sensibility tells you that there are limits to understanding through
rational intellect. Your understanding of almost any subject is greatly heightened by this
If you are involved in any kind of teaching, this influence will be an invaluable aid. You
will be able to communicate what you know in such a way that others really understand the
subject and also your experience of it.
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.
Saturn conjunction Venus: Harsh realizations
Mid-January 2014 until end of October 2014: This influence will have a strong effect on your
relationships with others. Relationships that are solidly based will go through a period of
testing and examination during which you and your loved ones and friends will become
increasingly concerned about what is valid between you. A weak and unstable relationship will
go through the same process, but you are more likely to conclude that it is not worth
preserving. Consequently, at this time the relationships that have no purpose or that have
outlived their purpose in your life will be cut off. Often you will be reluctant to let go of
Even in the best of circumstances you are likely to withdraw from others. During this time
you have to evaluate who you are, what your individuality consists of and how all of these fit
into your relationships with other people, particularly loved ones. You may come to some
harsh realizations about your relationships, and even those that you thought were quite good
may have to be given up. But you can be sure that any relationship that comes through this
period in good shape is very real and important to you.
New relationships with a strongly "fated" quality may also come into your life now, which will
have very profound significance for you in about fourteen years.
This is definitely a time to be conservative in financial matters and not take on any new
financial obligations, for you may have trouble meeting your existing ones. On the other
hand, this is an excellent time for firming up and organizing the financial structure of your
In general you should look upon this transit as a time for withdrawing into yourself with
respect to others and to material possessions. This withdrawal will enable you to get a
clearer idea of what and who you are, so that your future relationships with people and
possessions will be more solidly based on reality and therefore more reliable and useful.
Jupiter sextile Sun: Growth and optimism
A transit approaching its end, 28 August 2014, remaining 7 September 2014: This is a time when
life seems to flow very easily. With little effort, you are able to move in the direction
that you intend, and even your ideals seem to be within reach of fulfillment. It is a period
of growth, optimism and taking it easy. In many respects this is a good time to sit back and
take a long look at how well your life is working out.
Because you feel vigorous and energetic, this is an excellent time to advance your interests
in almost any area, although that impetus may be lacking.
Relationships with others are usually quite good now, and you enjoy being with friends. This
influence often indicates good times, as your enthusiasm for life bubbles over and affects
everyone around you.
This is also a good time for making plans, for you are inclined to "think big," which is a
general function of your optimism. While you can overdo this tendency, you will probably be
alert to opportunities that you would normally overlook or be afraid to take.
You feel generous and tolerant, and not easily bothered when something goes wrong in your
world. You recognize that there is plenty of time to correct the problem, so you don't get
upset. You aren't annoyed by persons who usually irritate you, and you may even feel like
patching up relationships that have gone bad or become difficult.
Jupiter square Venus: Warmth of feeling
Mid-November 2014 until mid-July 2015: This influence can create within you genuine warmth of
feeling and the desire to give and express love to others. Unfortunately it can also make you
feel very unenterprising and passive, so that you wait for things to come to you when you
ought to go out after them. It is very hard to tell which of these two broad classes of
response to expect, but generally speaking, the first is more common.
On occasions this influence may mean that you will attract someone with whom you could have a
significant relationship, but it may not be an easy relationship. It is likely to be quite
constructive, however, and whether or not you realize it immediately, you will gain from it in
wisdom and maturity.
The principal difficulty with this influence is that it inspires rather compulsive feelings,
which do not leave you enough room to maneuver and handle the new relationship properly.
Because you act compulsively, your feelings may overwhelm the other person. And it is very
important to realize that there is always a certain tension between closeness and the love of
freedom. It is quite possible to combine these into a very creative relationship that will be
pleasant and constructive for both of you, but you will have to calm yourself down a bit and
proceed with less excitement. If you can do this easily, this influence should be very good
This influence stimulates your love of beauty. Make every effort to surround yourself with
beauty, such as pleasant surroundings, art objects or beautiful scenery. With some people,
this feeling becomes perverted into a love of gaudy, showy things that have no real worth. To
each his or her own, of course, but do not get seduced into wasting money on some trifle that
you will regret in soberer moments.
