The report was generated for 6 months starting from December 2013 with the following birth
data: male, born on 3 October 1954 at 6:15 am in Oakland, California.
Your sun sign is Libra. This is the sign in which the Sun is in your birth chart. Your
Ascendant is also in Libra, and your Moon is in Sagittarius.
Pluto square Ascendant: Apparent power struggles
Mid-January 2013 until mid-November 2014: This influence usually provides some very intense
encounters with others, which may completely transform the important relationships in your
life. The problem is that this influence is not always gentle in its effects. You may feel
that each of your important relationships, especially a close personal one such as marriage,
is going through a period of upheaval that gives you little peace. A relationship that is in
great difficulty or that has outlived its function in your life may end altogether, even
though you don't want it to. You can be sure that if a relationship seems to be moving
irrevocably to a close now that it is making way for a new life for you. New relationships
will replace the old and serve a more constructive purpose.
Persons may enter your life who have a very powerful effect upon your mind and emotions,
almost as if they have a magical hold over you. No matter how you strive to escape their
influence, you seem to be held by an invisible thread. Such people may be holding onto you by
a subconscious complex, taking advantage of a weakness or fear within you and using this
knowledge to coerce you. They may even be doing this quite inadvertently; their knowledge may
be as subconscious as the complex within you that gives them the power. It is important that
you learn what part of you is giving someone this power. Do not blame the other person, no
matter how culpable he or she seems. Through apparent power struggles with others you will
uncover your weaknesses and learn how to deal with them.
In all dealings with other people, be very careful not to resort to underhanded or subversive
tactics. This influence makes some people act ruthlessly or feel that their goals justify any
means that will attain them. But this kind of attitude can set forces in motion that are
difficult to control and extremely negative in their consequences. These forces can lead to a
total breakdown in your relationships, if you allow them to begin.
Uranus opposition Sun: Security vs. freedom
Beginning of April 2013 until beginning of March 2014: 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 or your superiors or employers; 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
Uranus conjunction Descendant: More arguments
End of April 2013 until end of March 2014: This influence brings about disturbing close
encounters with others. Relationships in general will be a significant challenge, and you
won't even be able to take the old reliable ones for granted. Other people seem to be trying
to disrupt your life and make you uneasy.
Marriage is the most intimate one-to-one encounter, and any hidden tensions, any problems that
either of you has been holding back will come out now. Consequently your marriage may go
through some rather startling changes. If it has not been working out but you have been
holding it together anyway, this influence may very well signify its breakup. Even in a good
relationship you may have more arguments and disagreements than usual. This applies as well
to two people living together. A business partnership may also be affected in a similar way.
Clearly this is a time when you have to do a lot of straightening out.
Other types of confrontations may also be quite disturbing at this time. For example, you may
become involved in very disruptive legal disputes. Settle these as quickly as possible,
because you will not be able to count on the outcome of any legal confrontation at this time,
no matter how good it looks. Be careful of acting in a way that stirs people up against you,
for they could become extremely disruptive, if you give them any excuse.
This influence indicates a general reworking of your relationships with others, and you may
not always be happy about the outcome. In general, others are resisting your efforts to
control the relationship, which you may be doing in spite of your best intentions. But your
partner will not ask that the relationship be totally destroyed unless you are so rigid and
unwilling to change that there seems no other way out. All your partner wants is to redefine
the relationship so that she has a greater say and more room to move. It is possible that
these effects may work the other way, that you are the one who is struggling to gain control
in a relationship. In either case, the relationship has to express each of you more
appropriately than in the past.
Jupiter square Ascendant: On the lookout
Beginning of August 2013 until beginning of April 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 work. 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.
Jupiter conjunction MC: A highlight
Mid-August 2013 until mid-April 2014: This is a period of culmination in which you make a
greater effort to get where you want to be, either in your profession or in some other area.
And your efforts appear to produce results more easily than at just about any other time.
Therefore you feel better about yourself and your life than at other times, and you feel
confident that you can handle anything that comes your way.
If you are in business for yourself, you should be careful not to expand too rapidly or
overextend yourself. You might leave yourself vulnerable to the more difficult times that
will eventually come. Make sure that all expansion is carefully planned and that you have
safeguards against future times of difficulty.
Another negative side of this influence will come up if you do not get the recognition that
you feel you deserve. If others do not acknowledge you openly, you may feel cheated and go on
to assume the station and privilege that you think you deserve. Even if you are recognized,
you may act arrogant and smug. Be careful of this, because it creates a negative energy that
could lead to your total downfall when this influence is no longer in effect.
In general the sphere of your activities will broaden at this time, and you will probably meet
new people from unfamiliar parts of the country and even from other parts of the world. They
may come into your expanding sphere of action, or you may travel to their worlds. All of this
is most likely to happen through your work rather than your personal life.
Jupiter opposition Mars: In a big way
End of September 2013 until end of May 2014: 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.
