The report was generated for 6 months starting from December 2013 with the following birth
data: male, born on 8 October 1941 at 2:15 pm in Greenville, South Carolina.
Your sun sign is Libra. This is the sign in which the Sun is in your birth chart. Your
Ascendant is in Capricorn, and your Moon is in Taurus.
Jupiter trine Mercury: Intelligent plans
Beginning of August 2013 until end of March 2014: 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 square Sun: A matter of self-control
Beginning of September 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.
Jupiter trine MC: Boundless enthusiasm
Beginning of September 2013 until mid-May 2014: This is a time of increased optimism and self-
confidence. You feel capable of doing much more than you have ever done, and you are willing
to make the effort. This influence quite often signifies success in your public or social
life. Others will look to you for leadership, for they recognize your self-confidence and see
that you deserve it.
You have a good idea about where you want to go at this time, and you have probably mastered
the techniques and skills needed to get there and have acquired the material resources as
well. Under this influence you may gain financially, but you are not likely to squander your
money. You will use it to get ahead.
You may want to make improvements in your home or move to a larger and more spacious one.
Even if nothing very obvious happens on the material plane, as may be the case, this is
usually a time of inner peace and contentment. You feel good about yourself, with none of the
torments and insecurities that may afflict you at other times. Your confidence comes over to
other people, and they feel good being with you. As a result you may be able to support or
cheer up someone who is not feeling very well.
At this time you should be careful not to overextend yourself or become overcommitted in your
boundless enthusiasm. Keep in mind that even now your energies are finite.
Jupiter square Mars: Insight and skill
Mid-September 2013 until end of May 2014: This influence gives you a great deal of confidence
and makes you feel very self-assertive. Usually this is all right, but some people will
express this energy by becoming arrogant and domineering. Also be wary of overconfidence,
resulting in attempts to do things that are simply beyond you.
Intemperance in almost any activity could completely undo the basically positive nature of
this influence. Avoid exaggeration and try to maintain some sense of proportion. If you can
do all of this, you will be able to get more work done than usual, and you will do it well.
You will be able to accomplish things that you are usually afraid to tackle because you feel
inadequate, and you can take the initiative when you would otherwise wait for others to take
With care and planning and adequate restraint, this influence is a general sign of fortunately
timed action that takes advantage of the proper moment and makes the most of it. And this is
not luck on your part, but insight and skill. All of this requires preparation, however,
because impulsive actions at this time are not likely to be very effective.
It may be particularly important to placate persons in authority. If you act precipitately,
they may become alarmed and think of you as a threat, whether or not you intend to be. Of
course, if you do consciously intend to be a threat, this influence could be a help, assuming
again that you have planned carefully. But if you are not conscious of your intentions, you
may experience opposition from others without ever quite understanding why.
Saturn opposition Moon: An emotional trial
End of January 2014 until beginning of November 2014: This is one of the most emotionally
trying influences. It is frequently associated with domestic or professional problems,
emotional depression, loneliness, difficulties with women or difficulties with personal
relationships, often leading to breakups.
This influence represents an "alienation crisis," that is, a crisis brought about by the
discovery that you have been neglecting your emotional and psychological needs. As a result
you feel alone and disconnected from others, like an alien in the world whom no one else can
ever adequately understand.
To a greater or lesser extent, everyone's life revolves around an overall task or purpose that
makes one's life unique. The purpose may be a job, motherhood, fatherhood, some movement that
you believe in or anything else that gives you a sense of purpose. Often an alienation crisis
occurs when you discover that you have gone too far too fast in pursuit of your life purpose
and have neglected your psychological and emotional needs. Perhaps you have neglected your
relationships or your domestic life, or you have repressed your feelings. In this way you
build up a wall between yourself and others, which makes you feel alone and alienated.
You must make your personal life and your public role or other central purpose work together.
That will require changing your lifestyle so that you can pay equal attention to both.
Uranus opposition Sun: Security vs. freedom
Beginning of May 2014 until beginning of April 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 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
