Neptune conjunction MC: Lost on the way
Beginning of April 2012 until end of January 2014: Very commonly this influence brings sudden
confusion to people who have had a pretty clear idea of what they want to do with their lives.
You may feel as if you have suddenly become lost, although the way had seemed very clear. If
possible, do not make any permanent decisions about your long-term direction during this time.
Among the problems you may encounter is a feeling that what you have been doing is inadequate.
You may feel that your public or social life is too restrictive, that you have to be too
concerned with ordinary mundane reality. You may suddenly be attracted to a wildly romantic,
idealized way of life that seems very plausible to you now, although later it will seem
ridiculous. You may be attracted to working with people in hospitals, charities or other
social-service institutions. This is a perfectly positive direction, but you should examine
your motives for doing this work.
During this period you may also be attracted to mystical and spiritual subjects, especially
philosophies of ego-denial and abandonment such as are taught in many Eastern sects. You may
be particularly attracted to a movement led by a charismatic guru-father figure. Little harm
is likely to come of this, and there may be great benefits, but do not make a permanent
commitment until this period is over.
If feelings of defeat and weariness arise during this transit, do not allow yourself to
succumb to them. You are no worse than what you have always been. You may discover that you
have been excessively concerned about yourself and made yourself too important, but you
shouldn't berate yourself for that. Everyone does it at some time. Meanwhile open yourself
up to the very splendid influences that can come into your life now and teach you much about
the nature of the cosmos. Much of what you learn now will later prove to be of permanent
Saturn trine Pluto: Extremely useful
Mid-November 2012 until end of August 2013: This influence gives you the ability to see deeply
into yourself and find out what creative forces are at work. At the same time it lets you
take advantage of that understanding and make use of it in your daily life. You are able to
move forward to fulfill your ambitions. You can work harder now than at almost any other time
in your life, because your energies operate in a controlled and almost relentless manner.
You will be greatly concerned with your innermost self at this time. Therefore it is a good
time to undergo psychotherapy or some other consciousness-raising technique, if you feel that
it would benefit you. Disciplines involving self-understanding and regeneration, such as yoga
or meditation, are particularly effective under this influence.
You will be able to advance in certain areas of life because you can work harder and more
effectively and because others are impressed by your effectiveness. You assert yourself in
such a way that others realize that you are not to be trifled with. They take you and your
efforts seriously. Nevertheless the energies of this influence are not likely to arouse great
opposition. Others are willing to work with you, because they feel that you can get the job
The effects of this influence are subtle but not weak. Do not look for specific events now,
for the strongest effects are on the psychological level. You will simply notice that you are
more effective and can make a greater impact. This can be an extremely useful influence.
Jupiter conjunction Ascendant: Beware of airs
A transit approaching its end, 26 May 2013, remaining 3 June 2013: During this period you feel
good and project warm positive energies out into the world. This in turn affects your
relationships very positively and enables you to encounter people who can be good for you
precisely because you are good for them. In all transactions with others you will give and
receive in equal measure.
Personal relationships expand under this influence. If you have been living in a relatively
small circle of friends and acquaintances, you will expand your circle and meet people whom
you wouldn't ordinarily, possibly including the rich and famous or people in power. Just be
careful that you don't become involved with these people for superficial reasons; make sure
that you can grow through them. The fact that a person is socially significant may not have
any relevance to your relationship.
The basis for all this is that in a very real sense you are growing and taking more and more
of the outer world into your personal sphere. You are trying to include more of the world in
your experience. Properly handled, this process can make you a much wiser and more mature
individual. Your view of life should expand, and you should become increasingly tolerant of
the wide differences among people in the world. You have the opportunity to become a man of
the world to a much greater extent.
At this time, you should be careful not to assume arrogant airs or to think that you are
better than you are. You are probably a fine person, but that does not mean that you are
necessarily better than everyone else. Think in terms of your personal growth, not in terms
of your status with respect to others.
Jupiter conjunction Pluto: Self-betterment
From 16 July 2013 until 25 July 2013: This influence brings the urge to achieve to the
forefront of your life. You will make great, even extraordinary, efforts to gain success as
you personally define it. You work harder and strive to gain your objective with every ounce
of energy at your disposal. Consequently, this influence often occurs just at the moment when
some tremendous effort in your life bears fruit.
Sometimes there is a tremendous drive to gain power, and this influence can bring you power
even when you are not trying especially hard to get it. Remember that each person has
opportunities for a different kind of power. It may be great or relatively humble in terms of
the larger society, but it will be meaningful to you.
This power drive is sufficiently strong that it is difficult to deny, even if it has
absolutely no outlet. In that case you are likely to get into some kind of conflict with
authorities, even to the extent of arrest. If your ambition becomes the irresistible force
against an immovable society, you will probably be the loser. Therefore you must scan your
life to find areas where you can let this energy manifest itself. Surely in some area of your
life you can better yourself and achieve something that would bring you recognition and
respect. This is true no matter how depressed you think you are or how downtrodden your
circumstances. If you put all your energy into working on that, it is quite likely that you
will accomplish what you want.
The dominant drive of this influence is self-betterment, but each individual has to define
that term for himself. You can work in that direction now, and how well you succeed depends
largely on what you mean by betterment. Unfortunately, for some people it means simply money
or power. If you are one of them, throughout this period you will act as if obsessed, and
indeed, power can become a fanatical preoccupation. Other people may become obsessed by an
idea, usually concerning righteousness or morality. This also carries the danger that you
will lose track of all normal human values and try to live with a distorted set of standards
Jupiter square Sun: A matter of self-control
Mid-September 2013 until mid-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.
Saturn square Saturn: Soul-searching
From 16 October 2013 until 2 November 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
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
