Jupiter conjunction IC: Your inward needs
Mid-September 2013 until end of May 2014: 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.
Saturn sextile MC: Cautious action
End of November 2013 until beginning of September 2014: During this time you will work to
establish yourself more solidly in the eyes of the world, your community and your friends.
Inwardly you are able to arrive at a clearer idea of who you are now and how you measure up to
your own expectations and those of the community. Your goals and expectations may be set
rather high at this time, so you should be careful not to set yourself a task that is beyond
you, or worse, one that you don't really want to undertake. Under this influence you are
powerfully directed by your early conditioning about duty, responsibility and obligation
toward others, and therefore you are quite likely to pursue a course of action to fulfill what
you think others expect of you, rather than one that is appropriate to you.
This time is usually marked by cautious action. You are just getting the feel of managing
your life, and you do not want to upset everything now. You are anxious for material
achievements that others can recognize and that you can point to as if to say, "This is what I
During this time you work best by yourself, but you are conscious of how your work fits into a
larger scheme involving other people. It is just that you prefer not to manage others as well
as yourself at this time.
Nevertheless, you pursue your objectives with unflagging zeal and energy. It is not likely
that you will make any significant changes in your goals now. This should be a time of
accomplishment, if you put enough energy into the task, and if you are like most people, you
Saturn sextile Neptune: Heavy-hearted
End of November 2013 until beginning of September 2014: During this time you are able to
achieve a most unusual balance between your material and your spiritual needs, and you see the
relationship between them so that you can build your life upon both of them equally. This
influence helps you bring your spiritual ideals into focus in the material world so that you
can see precisely what role they play in your life. Consequently this is a time of sober
reflection and deep understanding about your life on several planes.
This is a time of serious thought. Your mood will not be especially light-hearted, but you
will be in a position to make great breakthroughs in understanding. You will be able to deny
yourself rewards that you have wanted in the past, because now you can see that if you wait a
bit, your daily life will come closer to your ideals. You are in the right frame of mind for
disciplined self-denial and sacrifice without being a martyr. In other words, you are
realistic about what you are doing.
Now you can work to further your ideals, such as working for religious or charitable
organizations, spiritual groups or whatever. In general you will be attracted to groups of
people who share your views, and you will be able to express your philosophy better in a group
than by yourself. This influence has the effect of making your ego subservient to higher
needs, so that if you believe strongly in what you are doing, you will be able to work hard
even if given very little credit or positive reinforcement.
With this influence there is the danger of taking your own actions too seriously. This can be
a very covert form of egotism in the name of spiritual awareness and devotion, and no form of
egotism, even if it goes by another name, is compatible with this influence.
Neptune trine Venus: Mystical love
Beginning of March 2014 until end of December 2015: This influence will stimulate your
romantic imagination considerably. This may lead you to an unusually romantic relationship
with someone, or it may arouse creative talents that you were not even aware of. The symbol
of this influence is the beautiful dream or illusion. Even though it is an illusion, you have
the ability now to make it real if you recognize that you must work to make any dream real.
If this influence does bring about a love relationship, it will probably be more romantic and
idealized than any you have ever experienced. It will seem like a perfect soul union between
the two of you, the realization of your most perfect ideal. However, there is the danger of
You will eventually learn to see your partner's flaws, but this relationship should broaden
your understanding of people to the point that you can accept the inevitable flaws. This
influence probably will not produce great disappointment in relationships. In fact, under
this influence you will be more compassionate and understanding of your lover, almost as if
you and your lover were one and her problems are yours too. This sense of oneness is based on
a deep spiritual truth that you can recognize more easily now, that we are all one. You are
now much more sensitive to the mystical aspects of love. You may not encounter an ideal love
right now, of course, but even so you will display much more sensitivity in your relationships
and understanding of other people.
If you have any intrinsic creative abilities, this influence will stimulate them tremendously.
This is an excellent time to begin the study of an art or craft. But this influence is most
favorable to the pure arts, those whose sole objective is the creation of beautiful images as
opposed to useful art objects. Even if you are not artistic, your ability to perceive beauty
in the world around you will be enormously heightened, and you will be much more sensitive to
the spirit of life that animates everything in the world.
Jupiter conjunction Pluto: Self-betterment
From 6 July 2014 until 15 July 2014: This influence brings the urge to achieve to the
forefront of your life. You will make great, even extraordinary, efforts to gain success as
you personally define it. You work harder and strive to gain your objective with every ounce
of energy at your disposal. Consequently, this influence often occurs just at the moment when
some tremendous effort in your life bears fruit.
Sometimes there is a tremendous drive to gain power, and this influence can bring you power
even when you are not trying especially hard to get it. Remember that each person has
opportunities for a different kind of power. It may be great or relatively humble in terms of
the larger society, but it will be meaningful to you.
This power drive is sufficiently strong that it is difficult to deny, even if it has
absolutely no outlet. In that case you are likely to get into some kind of conflict with
authorities, even to the extent of arrest. If your ambition becomes the irresistible force
against an immovable society, you will probably be the loser. Therefore you must scan your
life to find areas where you can let this energy manifest itself. Surely in some area of your
life you can better yourself and achieve something that would bring you recognition and
respect. This is true no matter how depressed you think you are or how downtrodden your
circumstances. If you put all your energy into working on that, it is quite likely that you
will accomplish what you want.
The dominant drive of this influence is self-betterment, but each individual has to define
that term for himself. You can work in that direction now, and how well you succeed depends
largely on what you mean by betterment. Unfortunately, for some people it means simply money
or power. If you are one of them, throughout this period you will act as if obsessed, and
indeed, power can become a fanatical preoccupation. Other people may become obsessed by an
idea, usually concerning righteousness or morality. This also carries the danger that you
will lose track of all normal human values and try to live with a distorted set of standards
Jupiter square Ascendant: On the lookout
From 18 July 2014 until 27 July 2014: 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.
