Jupiter square Sun: A matter of self-control
End of October 2014 until beginning of July 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.
Jupiter conjunction IC: Your inward needs
Mid-November 2014 until mid-July 2015: This is a time for expansion and growth in your
innermost personal life, a time when you will seek security at home and with your immediate
family. It may be necessary to reexamine your past life to find out what it can teach you
about yourself. But this should not be a source of anxiety. In fact, you should feel quite
good about what you learn at this time.
The symbolism of this influence is that you incorporate more and more of the outer world into
your innermost life. On the material level, you may buy a larger, more elegant or more
spacious home. Certainly it would be a good expression of this symbolism to improve your
existing home and make it more comfortable.
At this time you should do everything to ensure that your personal life is as comfortable and
secure as possible. You need to have a feeling of inner peace and security in order to
continue to move out in the world. In fact you should not think so much about outward success
now as about the more personal and inward needs that we have discussed here. And you should
realize that your real need now is not land or a larger home, but a feeling of strength and
This is the time to tie up any loose ends in your personal life, straighten out any
relationships that are not working well, any leftovers from your past life that are still
affecting the present adversely. To do this you may have to speak to others very openly about
yourself and your innermost thoughts.
So this is a good time to settle and put down roots. The feeling of belonging to a place and
a group of people is very important to you now. You don't have to do this in a way that
limits your freedom of movement, and during this time it is very unlikely that you will do so.
But everyone needs a solid home base so that they can feel at peace in their other activities.
If you don't make an effort to construct such a base now, you will have difficulty later when
your principal concerns are turning elsewhere.
Neptune square Ascendant: Ego losses
Beginning of May 2015 until end of November 2017: At this time in your life your relationships
with others are likely to become confused and difficult. You may encounter persons who try to
dissuade you from a course of action that you have been committed to for years, with the
result that you become confused about the direction of your life. The other person's
intentions in this may be either good or bad.
This is not a good time to become involved in any kind of contractual or business
negotiations. Even if the people whom you are dealing with are completely honest - and with
this influence they may very well be dishonest - you will find it difficult to think clearly
about your own goals and objectives in the negotiations. As a result you will not get what
you want from the procedure.
On the metaphysical plane there is a lesson to be learned from this influence. The less
involved your ego is in a situation, the more freedom you will have to do what you want. By
bringing about a loss, this influence often shows us that our attachment to material objects
or to certain personal relationships has prevented us from being free. So it is not usually
the influence itself that causes losses or confusion, but your ego's relentless drive to
maintain the game it is playing. And this may be happening at your expense, when viewed from
a higher perspective. When your ego takes over in this way, you set your priorities
incorrectly, and you are not likely to be successful.
The strategy with this influence is to flow through it without any particular set plan of
action nor any special objective. Simply treat this time as a learning experience. If a
relationship doesn't work out, ask yourself why you got into it in the first place. If you
attract dishonest people or if your dishonesty has brought you trouble, ask yourself what
purpose this served in your life. Often you will discover that you were trying to protect
something that really wasn't worth protecting.
Jupiter trine Mercury: Intelligent plans
From 24 July 2015 until 3 August 2015: This is not a time when you should wait for things to
come to you. But you can do quite well with it if you communicate with people, look for
opportunities, especially in business, and look for good items to buy or sell. This influence
confers the ability to see events clearly and to make plans intelligently, which will serve
you well in any of these matters.
You are able to put yourself across with confidence and warmth, which will make other people
believe you. They will also respect your sincerity and the clarity with which you communicate
your ideas. Even if you tell someone something he or she doesn't want to hear, you can do it
so that the other person will feel good about you for saying it.
This is an excellent time to take up the study of a new subject, and the more abstract the
better. But you also have the ability now to translate abstract ideas into practical reality,
which can be very useful in organizing and planning your activities in any sphere of life.
On the psychological level you can expect a period of optimism and positive thinking,
fortunately based on reality. You have big ideas, but you have the basic sense to understand
what can and cannot be done. This contributes greatly to your effectiveness at this time.
Jupiter opposition Jupiter: A little care and restraint
From 6 August 2015 until 15 August 2015: Under this influence you are likely to feel quite
good, with enough confidence to handle just about anything. It is a period in your life when
you feel optimistic and as though you can do whatever you want. However, you may be somewhat
overconfident, so be careful not to take on more than you can handle.
At this point, several time-consuming projects may be coming to a head at once. This could be
either quite advantageous or quite difficult, depending upon how well you have estimated your
capacities in the past. What is happening now may be more than you can deal with, so you may
have to cut back a bit.
This can also be a time of restlessness, for you feel that your everyday world is simply not
"big" enough or does not provide enough experience for you. If you feel this way, you need to
enlarge your scope of activity somewhat, but again be careful not to overreach.
You may have given others the impression that you want too much (in their terms, at least),
and they may try to prevent you from getting any further. If this happens, all you can do is
confront them directly and try to reassure them that this is not the case.
However, none of this is necessary. With a little care and restraint, you can convert this
into an excellent time that will produce considerable good, especially in financial matters.
This influence can make you either extremely extravagant or extremely successful in such
matters, depending upon your natural bent.
Jupiter square Ascendant: On the lookout
An approaching transit, from 24 September 2015 until 4 October 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.
