Neptune conjunction Saturn: Temporarily disoriented
Beginning of April 2015 until beginning of February 2017: Under this influence you will
discover that in many ways your view of the world isn't at all correct. This may occur
through a series of obvious disappointments, or it may take place more subtly through an
increasing sense of anxiety that has no obvious cause. Fear and loss of self-confidence are
two of the most difficult effects of this influence. You may suddenly become afraid for
almost no reason at all, and you may fear things that are not at all threatening to others.
It is as if you were becoming disoriented.
This is the "dark night of the soul" referred to by mystics, the period of confusion that
precedes the understanding that you can live with a reality that is different from what you
had thought. At the highest level this influence can be a prelude to enlightenment,
understanding the true nature of the "illusion" we call reality.
In most cases, however, this transit influence means that your concept of reality is changing,
which begins with the dissolution of your old concepts, leaving you temporarily disoriented.
The best way to handle this period is to get into comfortable surroundings and reduce the
stress level in your life as much as possible. Stress will only prolong the confusion. Try
to avoid making any decisions, because you are not in a very good frame of mind for seeing
things clearly. Avoid people who seem difficult or demoralizing. You need to be in a calm
position so that you can see what new truths emerge from the fog and confusion. And they will
Jupiter conjunction IC: Your inward needs
From 24 August 2015 until 2 September 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.
Jupiter conjunction Venus: Elegance and taste
From 13 September 2015 until 22 September 2015: This influence helps to smooth over all
difficulties in your relationships, as well as to promote friendship and give you a strong
desire for happy and peaceful times. You enjoy being with and talking with friends and will
probably attend or hold several social gatherings during this time. You may also be the
center of attention for some reason, and you will enjoy basking in the limelight.
This influence occasionally will bring a new love interest into your life. If it does, and
other factors are equal, the relationship should prove to be an unusually successful one in
which you both grow a great deal and in which there is an excellent balance between love and
freedom. Such a relationship will be devoid of jealousy or pettiness to an unusual extent.
The same energy affects existing relationships, so that you are able to relate to loved ones
with great ease. Because you are concerned with the larger issues in your relationship, you
are not about to cause trouble over any problem that is not extremely important. And such a
problem is not likely to surface during this time.
At this time also your taste is likely to become more elegant, and you may be tempted to buy
something that is very expensive or fancy. At the worst it might even be gaudy or tasteless.
In fact one of the few real dangers to watch out for under this influence is the tendency to
waste or squander money or other resources. Depending upon your own state of mind, however,
this influence can also bring in money and increase your resources. Whichever way it goes, it
should be well under your control.
You have a strong desire to surround yourself with beauty. Sordid or ugly surroundings are
much harder than usual for you to bear, so make an effort to avoid them. You are concerned
with the beautiful side of life at this time, and you should do everything to expose yourself
Jupiter opposition Saturn: Danger of misjudgment
From 21 September 2015 until 30 September 2015: With this influence it is very difficult to
know exactly which direction the trends in your life are taking. Thus you must be extremely
careful in your guesses, because of the danger of misjudgment.
Decisions in general are difficult during this time because you are caught in a conflict
between caution and optimism. Whenever one attitude gets the upper hand in your mind, the
other comes along and undermines it. Often it seems very difficult to know whether to expand
or retrench. This problem will be especially bad if you have overextended yourself in the
past and had to cut back. This creates a lack of self-confidence, which may surface now.
You may also experience a conflict at this time between the desire for greater freedom and
opportunity and the desire to hold on to the safe and predictable circumstances that you are
used to. Often the temptation is to break away from everything and start over without the
weight of the past holding you back, so you think. The restlessness resulting from this
conflict can cause you to make many significant changes in your life. Relationships are also
frequently difficult, especially those that involve much responsibility. Casual relationships
and friendships are less likely to suffer.
However, if you are basically satisfied with your life and you don't feel that your duties and
obligations are onerous, you should experience the positive side of this influence, which is
actually quite considerable. This is a time when you can expand the structures in your life
to include much more than ever before.
Jupiter conjunction Neptune: A sense of compassion
Beginning of October 2015 until end of May 2016: During this time your ideals will be aroused
as they seldom are at other times, and you will approach life with a greater sense of
compassion. People who cannot help themselves will win your sympathy especially, whether you
encounter them personally or through working with others in a charitable enterprise. Your
primary concern is to help individuals by giving them a hand. You may be less concerned with
transforming the social order that has given rise to the conditions that oppress the people
you are dealing with.
Your interest in spiritual, religious and mystical philosophy is likely to grow at this time,
and you may become involved in a group that is studying these subjects. This world no longer
seems to meet your needs adequately, so you have to turn inward to find a world that can give
you what you really need. Here, too, you will discover that the ego's drives for
self-gratification and self-assertion may be the major factors in preventing you from getting
what you want out of life. At this time the demands of the ego must be quieted at least a
little, so you can hear what the inner self is really saying.
Unfortunately there is another side to this influence, which you should watch for. Some
people develop a feeling of false happiness, like living in the dream world of an opium
smoker, with no basis in reality. You may feel that everything is all right when it is not,
or you may feel that you can do anything you want and get away with it. That is why this
influence is often associated with gambling or taking risks with limited resources, often with
disastrous results. This is not a very good time for investments, not because you will
necessarily lose out, but because you just won't know for sure, and you will be tempted to
gamble even when it is a poor risk. For the same reason, in business deals be sure you are
not the victim of a massive misrepresentation.
With this influence it is best to avoid purely selfish concerns, for when your actions are
thus motivated you are most likely to encounter its negative side.
Jupiter sextile Jupiter: In good working order
Beginning of October 2015 until beginning of June 2016: This is a time of balance and
equilibrium in your life, when all your affairs seem to run smoothly and without much effort
on your part. It is a time when you can relax and take it easy for a while, knowing that your
life is in good working order. This is also a time when growth seems to occur without much
effort - growth in consciousness, in your social life or wherever you feel that personal
growth is important.
But this is not really a time when you should just enjoy yourself. You should do that, to be
sure, but you should also be examining your life to see what needs to be done. It is
important to think this way now because the equilibrium that is characteristic of this period
enables you to look about yourself with reasonable calm and detachment. It is much harder to
achieve a perspective when you are in the middle of some major and possibly chaotic change.
This is a good time to achieve perspective in all possible senses of the word. It is a good
time for education, either formal or informal, for getting in touch with yourself through
self-awareness studies, or for seeing the larger world through travel.
Business transactions or negotiations are also favored now. Legal affairs also usually run
