The report was generated for 6 months starting from the 1st of February 2016 with the
following birth data: male, born on 13 April 1930 at 2:30 pm in Dallas, Texas.
Your sun sign is Aries. This is the sign in which the Sun is in your birth chart. Your
Ascendant is in Leo, and your Moon is in Scorpio.
Jupiter square Jupiter: Impending shortages
Mid-October 2015 until mid-June 2016: With this influence it is very important that you keep
your affairs from getting out of hand. There is a strong tendency to excess, which may make
it impossible to keep up with whatever you are involved in, simply because it is more than you
can handle. Be particularly careful concerning financial matters, for you are likely to spend
without thinking, confident that there is an abundance of money or other resources to back you
up. You may not notice the pinch immediately, but shortly after this period you may
experience shortages that will be severely exacerbated if you spend money foolishly now.
But money is not the only area of concern. You may be overcommitted to projects that demand
more time than you really have. So in every area of your life, make sure that you really have
the time or resources to do what you have set out to do. Do not overestimate the resources at
If you avoid that pitfall, this can be a very fruitful influence, because it gives you more
confidence and optimism and allows you to undertake projects that you would ordinarily be
reluctant to take on. Also your basically positive attitude helps to ensure that your affairs
will turn out the way you want.
Under this influence some persons experience a kind of ego inflation in which they have
delusions of grandeur or overestimate their self-importance. This can lead to arrogant
behavior and inflated pride with little or no real substance behind it.
What this influence does is test your sense of proportion. You have to know what you really
can and cannot do and who you really are. Insofar as you fulfill those conditions, this
influence will give you apparent luck and greater power to achieve.
Jupiter opposition Mars: In a big way
End of November 2015 until beginning of August 2016: This is an extremely exuberant influence,
which inclines you to do everything in a big way. Your energy level is high, and you are
ambitious in everything that you do. You have a great need to expend physical energy, but be
careful not to act recklessly. Discipline and restraint are necessary, no matter what you do.
Do not overestimate your abilities, either to yourself or to others. You are capable of doing
quite a bit under this influence, so you don't have to exaggerate. It is especially important
not to kid yourself about your abilities, however, because you will genuinely try to do the
impossible and quite possibly exhaust yourself in the process. For the same reason, don't
take unnecessary chances. The feeling of omnipotence that this influence confers is not real,
at least not to the extent that you feel it.
Sometimes this influence can signify a conflict with another in which you try to break away
from the other's restrictions. It is difficult to say in general whether your estimate of the
facts is accurate, that is, whether the other person is really demanding too much or
restricting you too much. Therefore you must examine the issue very carefully before you act.
You have a great need to be self-assertive at this time, but be sure to reserve it for a
situation in which it can be constructive. Avoid acting upon impulse. It could get you into
On the other hand, this influence also confers real courage. The difference between courage
and foolhardiness is simple self-knowledge, which you must have in order to make this
influence work out positively. If you are cool and collected in what you do, this can be a
time of considerable triumph as you overcome obstacles and accomplish deeds that you usually
would feel incapable of. If you have to stand up for yourself, you can, and in a way that
makes further dealings with your opponents constructive rather than destructive. But this
will happen only if you keep your head.
Saturn opposition Jupiter: Crab walk
Mid-January 2016 until beginning of November 2016: During this time, your opportunities for
growth and expansion in life are limited. You may feel that you are moving sideways, if not
actually going in reverse. There may be financial problems, especially if you have
overextended yourself in the recent past. Another effect of this influence is restlessness
and impatience with restrictions imposed upon you. This period requires patience, but
unfortunately yours seems to be almost exhausted.
This is a period of readjustment after a period of possibly too-rapid expansion. Certainly it
is necessary to examine your recent past to make sure that you have acted according to what
you really want to do and really ought to do. This influence can have the effect of getting
you back into a path that you have wandered away from. Do not be discouraged by any recent
setbacks. Quite likely they were for the best, as you will probably see in a little while.
Make things more secure and more stable, but do not start any new projects now. If your
expectations are overly optimistic, you may be disappointed, but at least the reasons will
become clear. You will see what aspect of reality has interfered with your ideals, and in the
future you will be able to take this into account.
Also at this time personal relationships may go through a period of trial. You often feel as
if your personal freedom is unduly limited by others. Separations sometimes come about
because you feel that that is the only way to achieve freedom. And, in fact, you are usually
better off after a separation that occurs during this time.
This is a time of cutting back and finding a more stable form for your life. It is not a time
of growth and expansion. In fact, too much expansion in the past may be the reason for what
is happening now. In the future you will have to make plans on a more solid basis so that
changes in your life and pressure from circumstances and people cannot interfere so much.
This influence is a useful, if not always pleasant, encounter with reality.
Pluto opposition Pluto: Changes in your life
Mid-February 2016 until end of December 2017: This period represents the fulfillment of those
changes that were made at an earlier time in your life. You should examine the degree to which
your life has been complete and rounded. Have you managed to achieve balances among the
various things and issues that competed for your attention? The changes that occur during this
transit are likely to be the result of whatever was not fully done at that time.
However, you seldom have lived life in a perfectly balanced manner and no matter how hard you
try, there will be some things that you have to deal with now that you did not deal with
previously. At times it may seem that these changes are unnecessary and intrusive. You may
feel that you have lived a long life and should have some stability now. But change is always
part of life. Allow such necessary changes to occur and do not try to obstruct them, and most
of all, do not regard the changes with regret. You are still changing and growing, and you
will do so as long as you live. Always remember the old Buddhist saying, "Enlightenment is
easy for those who have no preferences."
Neptune sextile Saturn: The real and the ideal
Beginning of April 2016 until beginning of February 2018: At this time the ideal and the real
are well balanced in your life, and you are in an excellent position to reflect upon their
relationship to each other. Ask yourself what is true for you and then ask what you would
like to be. In this way you can see which is which without the confusion that so often marks
our efforts to separate the ideal from the real. At the same time you can see what actions
you can take to help bring about the ideal in place of what is presently real and to make it a
solid and useful part of your own life and of the lives of those around you.
But you are not impatient now, and you are much more willing to accept what is real than at
other times. You see no real contest between the real and the ideal. Also you are not so
concerned about getting your own way that you insist on the kind of ego battle with the real
world in which either you or it wins. (And reality usually wins in these cases.)
You are patient now, because this influence enables you to live on very little. You are
inclined to be abstemious and opposed to self-indulgence, and you may subject yourself to a
rather stern regimen of alternating work and introspection. At this time you are most
concerned with higher truths and how you can actualize them in your own life.
This is a good time to withdraw somewhat from your usual activities, to stand back and see
what you have accomplished and what remains to be done. You are capable of adopting a very
calm and meditative attitude so that you can choose intelligently and take the proper course
This is also a good time to do work that helps others. It would satisfy your need to act
selflessly and to be a part of the larger scheme.
Uranus conjunction Sun: A new course
Mid-May 2016 until beginning of April 2017: This is an extremely significant influence in many
ways. It represents a time when you will try to achieve new kinds of self-expression and
become more free than you have ever been.
This is one of the most revolutionary periods in your life. At its most productive, this
influence can clear away limitations that have made your life less meaningful and fruitful,
whether they have been imposed by yourself or by others. Your life can be more real. But at
its worst, this influence can signify a time of wild instability and chaos, when events seem
to happen unpredictably and disruptively.
Whatever you feel about change in life, now you will be forced to break up old patterns and
embark on a new course. Whether you complete this process depends largely upon whether your
life has degenerated into a dull and safe routine. It also depends upon how much energy you
put into resisting changes.
You will be attracted to anything new and exciting, as well as new techniques in personal
development. You may become more interested in science and technology. Younger persons will
experience this as a time of rebellion, particularly against authorities, such as parents,
officials and employers. You will not be very patient with restrictions at this time.
However, this influence need not be destructive. It is a call for you to examine your life
and see what changes must be made to keep you from becoming too rigid. You may simply make
tremendous changes in many aspects of your life so that you feel more free and more completely
