The report was generated for 6 months starting from December 2013 with the following birth
data: male, born on 5 October 1943 at 10:31 am in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Your sun sign is Libra. This is the sign in which the Sun is in your birth chart. Your
Ascendant is in Scorpio, and your Moon is in Sagittarius.
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.
Uranus opposition Sun: Security vs. freedom
Beginning of May 2013 until beginning of April 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; 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
Jupiter square Sun: A matter of self-control
Mid-August 2013 until mid-April 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 beginning of 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.
Saturn conjunction Ascendant: Following through
Mid-January 2014 until end of October 2014: This is one of the most significant times of your
life. During this time your responsibilities will increase considerably, and you will try to
eliminate everything in your life that is not necessary to fulfilling them. Therefore your
life will become more complex and simpler at the same time. You are finishing up certain
tasks in your life and going into a five- to eight-year period of relatively quiet preparation
for a new beginning. You will be cutting some elements out of your life and working hard to
During this time you may have less freedom of movement than usual because of the pressure of
circumstances and the need to get things done. Old tasks that have never been completed must
be finished now. This may not be a very light-hearted time, but it should be quite
productive. But do not start out on a completely new project, because in a few years you may
find that you do not have the material or psychological resources to complete it. Finish what
is unfinished and simplify your life.
Good relationships will not suffer appreciably during this time, but bad ones will break up
completely. You are withdrawing from everything in your life that is unnecessary or in the
way of your development during the next few years. Bad or difficult relationships may be
among the elements that are discarded.
Try to avoid building a wall between yourself and others, for this is a great danger now.
Duty, responsibility and obligations do not preclude personally satisfying relationships, even
though you may feel that they do. If you cut yourself off from others unnecessarily, you will
become lonely and depressed. The people who belong in your everyday life are very important
for you now, especially since you are excluding those who do not belong. Often it is good to
seek out the company and advice of older people, for they have the insight and understanding
Neptune conjunction IC: Inner strength
Beginning of March 2014 until end of December 2015: The danger of this influence is that it is
likely to kick your props out from under you. In any activity that is important to you,
something may happen that will make it very difficult to continue in your present direction.
This event is probably not something that can easily be foreseen, and it will be difficult to
describe even as it is happening. It can take the form of a psychological crisis that results
in your feeling that you cannot go on. You may feel suddenly weak and ineffectual, even
though others may not be able to see any reason for this. It is also possible that events in
your most personal life will make it difficult to continue in your public or social
relationships with the self-confidence and assurance that you need to be at your best. There
may be domestic problems or difficulties with members of your immediate family. Someone very
close to you may be doing or saying things to you that are very discouraging.
But this influence can also have another effect. You may no longer feel like advancing in
your external social roles now, because you feel they have become meaningless and empty. You
may want to withdraw a bit and look at your life in terms of your own criteria instead of
others' and ask whether you are accomplishing what you yourself want to, rather than what
others want. Sometimes in life we go ahead too fast and lose track of our original purposes.
This is an excellent time to sit back and look at whether this has happened to you.
Many important elements of your life may come to an end and pass out of existence now. Let
them go, for it is the right time for this to happen, and it will ultimately be good. This is
a time to renounce those things, for you will soon discover that you do not really need them
anyway. As the old saying goes, we are naked when we come into this world and when we leave
it. Therefore what we have inside is important. Now is the time for you to find the strength
of what you have inside.
