Jupiter square Sun: A matter of self-control
End of September 2014 until beginning of June 2015: 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.
Jupiter square Moon: Magnanimity
Beginning of November 2014 until beginning of July 2015: This is usually a very favorable
influence. It gives your emotions a great deal of power, so that you feel them much more
emphatically and are more in touch with them. At the same time you want to establish
empathetic relationships with others, to hear their problems, to help out and play a
protective role toward them if possible. This influence may make you feel very sentimental
about and attached to your surroundings and to familiar objects. Your past is very important
to you now, and if there are events in your past that you find uncomfortable, they are likely
to come up. There is often a need to confront the unconscious areas of the psyche during this
time, but you should regard this as an opportunity to be healed of the wounds made by these
energies from the past.
In emotional relationships, this influence can create a tension between your desire to be
close to someone and the desire to be free. Be careful to give your loved ones the same
freedom that you want, and do not try to be unfairly possessive of them. Also, confrontations
with the unconscious aspects of yourself mentioned above can affect relationships adversely
during this time. In such cases it is necessary to cultivate a sense of detachment and not
become so wrapped up in your emotions that you cannot see beyond them.
This influence gives an enormous concern with social and individual justice. You are easily
outraged when you see someone getting the short end of the stick, but your emotionalism may
make it difficult to see a good solution to the problem. Try to avoid feeling self-righteous
and intolerant. You will need to have a very open and generous point of view in order to
clear up any conflicts that occur at this time, and emotionalism masquerading as righteousness
will not accomplish anything useful. Instead, take advantage of the ample positive side of
this energy by helping those who need it. Protect the people you can protect and succor those
who have been hurt. Magnanimity is just as much in accordance with the meaning of this
influence as are extreme emotionalism and self-righteousness.
Saturn square MC: An evaluation of goals
Mid-January 2015 until end of October 2015: This is a challenging time in your life. You will
have to make many choices about what areas of your life to emphasize. Will you work to make
your personal life as satisfying as possible? Will you work collectively with many other
people or by yourself?
Often there is an "alienation crisis" with this influence, a sudden feeling of being cut off
from everyone else, as if you have spent too much energy pursuing purely personal goals. This
in turn generates loneliness and a feeling of being distant from others, even loved ones. Or
you may suddenly feel that you no longer have the strength to go on in the direction you have
chosen. Fears of your own inadequacies may distort your perspective. All of this is most
likely to happen if you have neglected personal relationships in your life. You cannot go on
forever without supportive emotional relationships, and you may have been trying to do so.
Sometimes this influence can have the opposite result, and you discover that various personal
entanglements have been interfering with the pursuit of your valid goals. In this case you
will break off relationships and gain the freedom to go your own way. The issue here is the
balance between personal relationships and advancement in life.
On another tack, this period can test your choice of goals. You may encounter opposition from
others that forces you to examine whether your goals are really valid for you. If they are,
the conflict with other persons or against trying circumstances will be useful. But if you
find that your heart is not really in the path you have chosen, you may have to make
adjustments and change your course of action. It is far better to do this now than several
years from now, when you may be overcommitted to an inappropriate course and discover that you
are trapped. Now is the time to change. It may not be pleasant, but it is possible.
Neptune square Saturn: Self-doubt
Beginning of June 2015 until end of December 2017: During this time you will have problems
with insecurity and anxiety that seem to have no apparent cause. Your grasp of reality seems
to be slipping away, and you feel very disoriented and confused. Regardless of your material
circumstances at this time, this is ultimately a psychological influence; that is, it affects
you by causing your moods and your views of the world to change. Any problems you have now
will probably have their origins in your own mind. That is the first principle to grasp with
this influence. If you can handle its effect on your consciousness, you can handle anything.
The chief problem is that you will begin to have doubts and fears that you are not adequate to
handle your life, and you may feel like withdrawing from everything. That is not a good idea,
however, because you need others' points of view to balance your overly pessimistic views.
However, if someone is contributing to the shakiness of your self-confidence, you should cut
that person out of your life, at least for the present.
Insecurity and lack of belief in yourself have the greatest effect on your public appearance
and your domestic life. Remember that you have the same rights and privileges to be yourself
as anyone else has, and don't allow others to walk over you. But don't become so committed to
a position on any matter that you cannot let go of it without further damaging your belief in
yourself. One important effect of this influence is that it takes away elements of your life
that you have identified with - property, possessions, opinions or whatever. It shows you
that your existence does not depend upon being able to hold on to these elements.
In fact one manifestation of this influence may be that you will voluntarily give up your
material possessions for a self-denying, ascetic way of life like a monk's, although probably
not so extreme. The best way to deal with this influence is to see just how much you can do
without. You may be surprised at how little you need, and your burdens may be much lighter as
Jupiter sextile Ascendant: Efforts with friends
From 28 July 2015 until 7 August 2015: This is usually an extremely fortunate influence for
all kinds of social contacts. You will benefit through others, and they will probably benefit
through you. If you choose to go it alone at this time, you will waste a valuable
opportunity, for you will profit tremendously from team efforts with friends. Also you will
have opportunities to work on projects that may be to your personal advantage; these will come
from persons you encounter every day around your neighborhood, people from whom you do not
expect much beyond the usual social exchanges.
At this time you will have the opportunity to expand your contacts with the larger world.
Sometimes this influence is a sign of travel, but certainly you will encounter people whose
backgrounds are quite different from yours and whose experience will increase your
understanding of the world. Several of these people may become permanent friends whom you
will benefit from knowing.
You may also benefit from old friends. A friend may tell you about a good chance to get ahead
in some way.
At the same time, you feel benevolent and well disposed to your friends and acquaintances.
You are willing and able to help those who need it, and generally you display an attitude of
supportive kindness to the people around you, for you don't want to see people in trouble.
This basic willingness to give and to help others enables you to receive much from others as
well. People sense that you will conduct all transactions fairly, so they are willing to be
fair to you. Actually this is always true, but you are more able to see it at this time.
Jupiter conjunction IC: Your inward needs
From 21 August 2015 until 30 August 2015: This is a time for expansion and growth in your
innermost personal life, a time when you will seek security at home and with your immediate
family. It may be necessary to reexamine your past life to find out what it can teach you
about yourself. But this should not be a source of anxiety. In fact, you should feel quite
good about what you learn at this time.
The symbolism of this influence is that you incorporate more and more of the outer world into
your innermost life. On the material level, you may buy a larger, more elegant or more
spacious home. Certainly it would be a good expression of this symbolism to improve your
existing home and make it more comfortable.
At this time you should do everything to ensure that your personal life is as comfortable and
secure as possible. You need to have a feeling of inner peace and security in order to
continue to move out in the world. In fact you should not think so much about outward success
now as about the more personal and inward needs that we have discussed here. And you should
realize that your real need now is not land or a larger home, but a feeling of strength and
This is the time to tie up any loose ends in your personal life, straighten out any
relationships that are not working well, any leftovers from your past life that are still
affecting the present adversely. To do this you may have to speak to others very openly about
yourself and your innermost thoughts.
So this is a good time to settle and put down roots. The feeling of belonging to a place and
a group of people is very important to you now. You don't have to do this in a way that
limits your freedom of movement, and during this time it is very unlikely that you will do so.
But everyone needs a solid home base so that they can feel at peace in their other activities.
If you don't make an effort to construct such a base now, you will have difficulty later when
your principal concerns are turning elsewhere.
