The report was generated for 6 months starting from May 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.
Saturn square Pluto: Shedding your skin
Mid-November 2012 until end of August 2013: This can be a difficult time in your life.
Because of circumstances and other people, you find it very difficult to make the changes you
would like to make in the world around you. For example, your ambitions may be frustrated.
Poeple in authority may try to prevent you from accomplishing what you want. Financially, you
will probably have to curb expenses because you simply do not have the resources. Sometimes
the experience of this transit is much like struggling against chains that hold you down. The
temptation is to resist and struggle with all your might.
However, resisting is not the best way to handle this energy, because that would set in motion
destructive powers beyond your control. This influence is sometimes associated with violent
incidents, so take care. The best way to handle it is with some degree of detachment.
Understandably you will be quite upset with some of the obstacles that crop up now, but regard
them as a way of finding out which areas of your life are working and which are not. This
influence usually represents a call to eliminate the unnecessary and superfluous elements in
your life. It requires that you get rid of the dead and useless structures. If you do it
voluntarily, it will be easier.
When this period is over, you will emerge from the crisis considerably tougher than you were.
Conserve your resources, and if you are in financial difficulty, reorganize your life so that
you can get along with less.
Saturn conjunction Mercury: Thinking small
End of December 2012 until beginning of October 2013: This is a time of serious, heavy, even
pessimistic thinking. Communication with others becomes more significant, but also more
difficult. In fact this influence often means saying goodbye. You take life more seriously
than usual and look at things more seriously, but you run the risk of losing your sense of
Your mental and intellectual viewpoint is narrowed by this influence. You are likely to
concern yourself with a smaller range of ideas, but you are more likely to think about them
thoroughly. You are beginning a major new cycle of ideas and opinions, of communicating in
new ways. This consumes your mental energy and limits your ability to range over a large
number of topics. Also you root out old ideas and notions that have outlived their usefulness
in your life. Your mind is very disciplined, but with this discipline and narrowing of focus
there is the danger of thinking too narrowly. You may overlook important alternatives because
of your tendency to concentrate single-mindedly at this time. Also, with your tendency toward
depressed thoughts you may overlook possibilities that seem too idealistic or risky; probably
they are not at all - it is just that you are thinking "small."
Nevertheless this is an excellent time for working a single idea through completely, planning
very carefully and realizing ideas that can have important consequences many years from now.
When dealing with yourself and others, be careful that you do not become too concerned with an
unattainable perfection. One effect of the this influence can be to make you too exacting and
critical, with the result that you alienate others.
Jupiter conjunction Jupiter: Wonderful opportunities
From 15 May 2013 until 24 May 2013: This influence indicates the beginning of a new cycle of
growth and progress. However, it is often the focus of exaggerated expectations. You may
expect sudden windfalls, great wealth or luck, and all kinds of wonderful opportunities. And
these things do happen sometimes with this influence, but most people should expect more
subtle, but equally useful effects.
Events now, such as meetings with persons or even changes in your psyche, open the way for you
to become wiser and more mature and to have a broader understanding of the world. At this
time you will reach out consciously and unconsciously and ask more of the world, but at the
same time you are willing to give more to the world.
This influence can make you feel either more demanding or more giving toward others, but you
are not likely to get much out of it if you think only of what you can get. The law of
conservation of energy in the universe says that you can transform the energies in your life
from one form to another, but you cannot create them out of nothing. This influence
represents a time when you should see whether you are doing that in your life.
Concretely, you can expect persons who are good for you to come into your life. Or
circumstances will arise that give you increased freedom or an opportunity to do something
that you have never done before. Educational opportunities may come to you at this time, or a
chance to travel. Sometimes this influence does in fact bring about financial advantage, but
you should not sit around passively waiting for it to happen. This is an excellent time to
invest or expand in business as long as you are very careful not to overdo it or overextend
Jupiter square Neptune: False optimism
From 13 June 2013 until 22 June 2013: At this time you will work very hard to actualize your
ideals and find a concrete way to put your spiritual views into practice in the real world.
But you can expect the real world to put up some resistance to your ideas. Among other
things, you will be challenged to demonstrate that your ideals are not just irrelevant,
impractical abstractions. You will also have to demonstrate that your views are based on
realism rather than some dream world, which is where you may very well be now. At any rate,
this time will give you the opportunity to find out.
You will give readily when called upon now, because this influence signifies a great
generosity to people who are less fortunate than yourself. But you may not be very discreet
in choosing the people on whom you lavish your charity. Some people can be helped, and it
would be worthwhile to spend your time on them. But others are not worth wasting time on,
although with this influence you may not be able to tell the difference.
On another level, this influence can signify the kind of false optimism that makes you take
foolish risks, especially with limited resources. In any financial dealings be very careful
that everything is exactly as represented to you by others. Otherwise you could be taken for
This time is a test of your grasp of reality and your ability to translate ideals into
practice. There is no reason to assume that you will not pass the test, but you do have to be
Religious or spiritual delusions are another danger of this influence. You may be tempted to
run after false messiahs or teachers whose ability to dazzle with spiritual phrases exceeds
their ability to teach you how to cope with your life.
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.
