Your sun sign is Libra. This is the sign in which the Sun is in your birth chart. Your
Ascendant is also in Libra, and your Moon is in Aquarius.
Uranus sextile Uranus: The other way around
End of May 2012 until beginning of February 2014: Now, at the age of around seventy, you
experience a time when you can gain great insights into your relationship with the larger
world, but the emphasis is different. Instead of learning about the outside world and your
place in it, you are likely to focus on what you have got from your life. You will reflect on
your encounter with the outside world and what your personal values mean in it. Throughout
much of your life you may have been so concerned with making your business, professional and
social life work out as you wanted that you haven't paid enough attention to your inner life
and needs. Insights gained at this time will cause you to reevaluate your goals and give your
personal needs a higher priority. You are no longer bound by the obligations that prevented
you from doing this before. Now you are free to explore your own inner world and come to a
better understanding of who you are and how your life has fitted your needs.
Jupiter square Sun: A matter of self-control
End of August 2013 until beginning of May 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.
Saturn square Jupiter: A current challenge
End of December 2013 until mid-October 2014: During this time your opportunities may be
curtailed and your freedom of action may be quite limited. Restrictions seem to come from
nowhere, and you may have to work very hard just to maintain your accustomed level, let alone
improve it. This period can be quite unfavorable financially, especially if you have not been
very careful in recent years. It tests how well you have put your life together in almost
every area, but especially in matters related to finances and business. You may discover that
many aspects of your life cannot withstand real adversity.
Approximately seven years ago, many new activities began in your life. Now they are being
tested to see whether they have any real importance in your life. Anything that does not
withstand this test should be abandoned or substantially changed. It will be possible to hold
on to something that clearly does not work, in spite of opposition from others and
restrictions from your surroundings. And if you do that, after this time, it may appear to be
working out all right. But that is only because the current challenge is over. However, in
about seven years anything you have clung to will be tested again and will cause far more
trouble than it does now. In other words, if something isn't working now, let it go!
Typically this influence produces extreme restlessness. Your drive for freedom is
relentlessly curbed by the restrictions of this influence, and you feel very strongly that you
must break out of these restrictions. You may experience residence changes or the breakup of
personal relationships that seem to interfere unduly with your freedom. However these changes
are usually just hasty reactions to this influence. You would be much better off to calmly
evaluate what is and isn't working in your life and to consciously eliminate the elements that
do not work. Don't just react blindly because of frustration.
Neptune opposition Venus: Obscure problems
Mid-March 2014 until beginning of January 2016: During this time, love relationships,
especially, may cause problems because either you or your partner has an unrealistic attitude
about the relationship. Disillusionment and disappointment are the likely result when the
romantic cloud lifts and the truth about the relationship becomes clear. All of us idealize a
new lover to a certain extent, for that is part of the normal process of falling in love. But
this influence indicates that the problem can be much more severe because of your
unwillingness to accept reality as it is. You are inclined to look for partners and
relationships that can help you escape from the humdrum, everyday world into a magical world
of fantasy and beautiful illusions. But unfortunately you must pick your partner from the
human race, and the people who can truly fulfill this kind of dream are extremely rare. So
you create a beautiful image in your imagination and pretend that a specific person fits the
image. And you are likely to persist, even though everyone can see, even you if you open your
eyes, that your loved one is not what you fantasize. This is the most extreme manifestation
of this influence, and it is not an uncommon reaction.
This influence can create other kinds of relationship difficulties as well, such as obscure
problems within an existing relationship. For example, you may find it difficult to
communicate with your partner, or one of you may do something behind the other's back, thus
undermining your mutual confidence.
The most useful effect of this influence is that it stimulates the creative imagination. In
fact, every illusion or delusion is really only a misuse of creative imagination or a
confusion of imagination with truth. If you can keep truth and imagination separate you will
derive great benefit from this period, especially if you are intrinsically creative. Artistic
creativity is heightened by this influence, and even your relationships can be more
interesting, if you don't lose sight of their real nature.
Pluto square Sun: Power struggles
Mid-March 2014 until beginning of November 2016: 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 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.
Uranus opposition Sun: Security vs. freedom
Mid-April 2014 until mid-March 2015: 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; 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
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
