Saturn square Saturn: Soul-searching
End of November 2012 until beginning of September 2013: This is a critical period in which
several aspects of your life and experience will be tested, especially those that began to be
important about seven years ago. Most often this influence is experienced as a sort of
identity crisis in which you begin to question what you are doing. You may suffer a crisis of
confidence at this time, fearing that you have made the wrong moves in life or committed
yourself to some course of action that will not be good in the long run. During this period
you will think about and question all the long-term trends in your life. You will not be
thinking about trivial matters.
Sometimes a particular event triggers off this period of soul-searching. Others may create
difficulties for you, especially in your public and social life. Perhaps they detect the
first signs of insecurity that will afflict you during this period. If they are people who
naturally compete with you, they may try to take advantage of your apparent weakness. People
in authority may also sense your feelings of insecurity.
You must recognize that some aspects of your life need to be questioned at this time. But
don't stand in one spot quivering about your life. Examine it and make whatever changes are
possible and seem appropriate. Any project you started seven years ago or any new aspect of
yourself that first surfaced then that is truly worth continuing will still be worthwhile
after this period. This is a time of testing, and anything that withstands the test will be
better for it. Things that do not pass the test are well got rid of. Shortly you will enter
a period of stability and fruitfulness that will justify the events that take place now. In
fact, if you are truly conscious of your life and your objectives, you will not undergo a real
crisis at all. You will only go through a period of examining what is working and what is
not. Your difficulties with the outer world at this time are signals about what you should be
Uranus opposition Neptune: Higher dimensions
End of April 2013 until end of March 2014: How you will react to this influence will depend
upon how well you have learned certain of life's lessons. If you are extremely materialistic
and so caught up in the mundane concerns of daily life that you cannot see or conceive of
anything higher - whether it be a religion, a system of ideals or whatever - you will
experience this time as extremely confusing. Events will occur that simply do not fit into
your scheme, and you will become confused and perhaps act in ways that you consider very
unwise. You may suddenly start chasing after wild and impractical dreams, become involved
with persons who are very out of touch with reality and generally get your goals thoroughly
All of this arises because this influence exposes you to higher dimensions of existence, to a
world that doesn't work like the one you have been taught to see. Nevertheless this higher
world is real and important, in that it gives life meaning even though seemingly far removed
from it. If you have always frowned on idealistic notions of higher metaphysical dimensions,
this influence will confuse and upset you, because it reveals these dimensions to you. But if
you have learned that the universe does not stop with what you can see and feel with your
senses, this influence will allow you to experience profound revelations and understanding.
Your degree of enlightenment or confusion depends entirely upon how well prepared you are.
Jupiter trine Ascendant: People at their best
From 1 May 2013 until 10 May 2013: This influence signifies your willingness to grow in
consciousness and experience through your contacts with others and to be more magnanimous and
willing to help others. In this you are helped by the fact that your relations with others
are very good at this time, and you experience people at their best. This makes you more
optimistic, and you rightly believe that whatever you give to others will be returned with
interest. A person may enter your life now who really helps you out in various ways,
especially by teaching you something about the universe and your role in it. This learning
will be on whatever level you are ready for, perhaps simply learning to be more tolerant and
open to new ideas or even encountering deep spiritual and religious truths through this
relationship. Certainly you are ready for a greater spiritual understanding of the world now.
You need to experience more than the superficial banality of life that many people become
mired in. Although you are inclined to idealize the world in general and certain persons in
particular, in the long run you will find that this is not a delusion but a period of truly
Your learning at this time is not limited to spiritual truths, for you are in general more
intellectually eager and willing to learn. This is an excellent time to go to school or take
a course in a subject that will give you greater insight into the questions that interest you.
On occasion this influence will signify the beginning of a relationship that can bring you
great emotional happiness. It could be a new love, although that is much more likely if
indicated more specifically by another influence at about this time. Any new love that comes
now will be very beneficial to your personal growth, whether or not it lasts.
Jupiter conjunction Uranus: A sudden windfall
From 2 May 2013 until 11 May 2013: This is a time of surprises and sudden opportunities. And
you will strive now for a kind of freedom you have never known before. You may throw over all
kinds of responsibilities and try to recapture your lost youth.
The most negative aspect of this influence is reluctance to live up to your responsibilities.
Be careful that in your desire for freedom you do not let people down who are really counting
on you. On the other hand, you have to strike a balance between the demands that others make
on you and your need to be yourself.
At the same time, this influence arouses your idealism. You find it very hard to accept
sordid or unjust conditions, either in your personal surroundings or in the outer world. For
this reason you may become involved in a reform movement or group that works to change social
But this influence can work out in an entirely different manner. It may mean a sudden break
or opportunity from an entirely unexpected quarter - for example, a sudden windfall or a
sudden encounter with someone who proves to be beneficial to you. These are just a few of the
possibilities. It is difficult to say exactly which of these might occur, because this is a
very erratic influence.
Another effect of this influence is that it can open your eyes to new possibilities. Its
consciousness-expanding nature can help you see situations from a totally different angle, and
you may think of solutions to the problems that you have had to face. Often these will be
radical solutions that you would usually be afraid of, but this influence gives you the
confidence to try them.
Whatever the effects of this influence, you can expect a sudden broadening of the scope of
your life and the opportunity to encounter life from a new, richer and broader perspective.
This may come about through a major transforming event or through a series of minor ones that
collectively have a large impact.
Jupiter opposition Mercury: Mind the details
From 27 July 2013 until 6 August 2013: This is a time of very big plans and the culmination of
many ideas that you have had in the past. It is possible now to make your ideas become
reality, as long as you avoid certain pitfalls. In this case the primary problem is to avoid
thinking too big or attempting something that is totally grandiose and impractical.
If you can keep track of all of the details that go into a well-thought-out business deal,
this is an excellent time to sign contracts or to conclude any kind of commercial transaction,
but it is very important not to overlook any details that might affect the outcome. This
influence enables you to see the overall patterns in anything and to plan with foresight and
wisdom. But if you are not careful, it can also lead to sloppy thinking or planning. It is
best to work with someone else who can check over your work or plans and call your attention
to anything that you have overlooked.
Projects or plans that began up to six years ago may come to fruition now, but only if you
have been careful about details as described above. At any rate, events now will make it
clear whether these ideas were based on reality or on pipe dreams. Work out everything in
detail and leave as little as possible to chance; this will help you immensely.
Although recognizing the truth of any matter is important to you now, you must deal with
others tactfully. There is a danger of alienating people by being self-righteous or arrogant
in telling them about your ideas. It is extremely important that the breadth of vision
conferred by this influence be accompanied by tolerance and generosity. Usually it is, but
sometimes people react in the negative way just described.
The pace of events may become rather fast moving for you at this time, and that is another
reason why you must plan everything very thoroughly. You could get confused, not because the
situation is undefined or vague but because the scale of events is too large for you to grasp.
But this shouldn't happen if you have worked everything out in advance.
Jupiter opposition Sun: A turning point
Mid-September 2013 until mid-May 2014: This can be and usually is a very positive time. But
you can make more or less out of it, depending upon how you handle it. In most ways it
represents a period of culmination in your life, and you will be tempted to expand beyond any
reasonable limit. There is no question that you have a good chance for success in any one of
a number of endeavors at this time and, within reason, you should pursue them. However, you
should not restrict yourself solely to material and physical growth now. Even if you don't
have all the material goods that you want, you should turn your attention to spiritual and
inner needs. Ultimately, nothing satisfies like satisfaction. Objects that you acquire,
possessions, money, and even social prestige are merely devices to make you feel that you have
satisfaction. They are not the state of satisfaction itself. It is your inner difficulties
that make your life less than it could be, even if you have corresponding problems in the
material world. You must look for the solutions within yourself, and this time represents a
turning point, where you should begin to look for the answers.
Under this influence, the tendency is to go after everything that you want in the material
world without caring especially about whoever is in your way, to gather as much stuff as you
can and indulge yourself in what you want. Then, as the influence subsides, you may feel that
this effort has failed, leaving your life as empty as it was before.
Do not be arrogant toward others or assume that you have everything right. Through meaningful
encounters with others, especially intimate one-to-one encounters, you can find out which way
you should go at this time. Work with another person and think in terms of mutual growth. By
trying to achieve goals set by both of you and by trying to be a twosome, you each will become
more conscious of what you are as an individual. If you can recognize the real meaning of
this influence in terms of your own life, this can be an extremely productive and growth-
oriented time, a period that will always have meaning for you.
