The report was generated for 6 months starting from July 2014 with the following birth data:
male, born on 29 May 1917 at 3:00 pm in Brookline, Massachusetts.
Your sun sign is Gemini. This is the sign in which the Sun is in your birth chart. Your
Ascendant is in Libra, and your Moon is in Virgo.
Saturn opposition Mars: The middle way
Beginning of December 2013 until mid-September 2014: This can be an extremely challenging
period, because you feel that everything you try to do is blocked by circumstances or opposed
by others. You may feel angry, but you have no obvious outlet for your anger, so you are left
boiling over inside and seething with frustration. And there is no doubt that your actions
are very closely circumscribed at this time. People who are important in directing your life
may be a serious source of trouble at this time.
You may feel tempted to lash out against the forces that seem to be conspiring against you,
but this is probably not a good idea. They will probably prove too strong for you. Instead
of rebelling and fighting, it would be better to wait and in the meantime find some outlet for
your pent-up energy. Hard work, physical activity, and concentrated effort will help dispel
the energy build-up that may accompany this influence. However, take reasonable precautions
in whatever you do along these lines.
It is not a good idea simply to hold in your feelings, even though it seems futile to let them
out. The stored-up energy within you provokes responses from others and from your environment
in very subtle ways, which can lead to even greater problems. You can conceivably become the
victim of your own violent feelings, and this can happen in very subtle, unconscious ways. So
you have to find the middle road between lashing out violently and holding all your anger in.
Saturn opposition Mercury: Rigidity spells defeat
End of December 2013 until mid-October 2014: At this time your ideas and plans may be
defeated, or they may have their greatest concrete realization. In either case, you will run
into considerable resistance from others to what you say. This may result in severing
relationships with those who disagree with you because there is no longer any communication
between you. Or it may result simply in the breakdown of communication that was once quite
Other people's resistance to your thinking is not intended solely to defeat you, although you
may think so. You may be tempted to give up if you are not secure in your thinking and plans.
But the resistance of others also forces you to give your plans clearer form and to take
definite steps to implement them. This takes hard work and much heavy thinking, but the
results can be quite good.
If your ideas cannot withstand the challenge or you do not have enough confidence to defend
them, this is likely to be a time of self-doubt and questioning. You will seek to find out
what is wrong with your ideas, and if you can be sufficiently detached, you may indeed find
out what is wrong. But if you just wallow in guilt, doubt and "being wrong," you will
accomplish little except to become depressed.
Although this is not an especially easy time, you shouldn't take a negative or pessimistic
view of matters. There are concrete challenges to be met, and you should use your energy to
recognize and meet them. Negative thinking is a form of self-indulgence that you cannot
afford at this time.
One factor of this influence may be causing you problems. If you have already allowed your
thinking to become too rigid and fixed, you will find it difficult to make occasional
necessary compromises when you are challenged. Even with the best ideas, a certain amount of
mental flexibility is necessary. Rigidity is almost certain to spell defeat, because the
forces that oppose you will become equally unbending and rigid.
Jupiter conjunction Saturn: A new freedom
From 29 June 2014 until 8 July 2014: During this time you will confront your own inhibitions
and self-restrictions, as well as the restrictions placed upon you by circumstances. You may
wish to break free of them in order to enlarge your scope of activity, so you can go to places
and do things that you have never been able to do before. On the other hand, you may choose
to grow within the structure of restriction in your life, using that very structure to enlarge
your life. It can go either way, depending very much upon your temperament. And neither way
is better as a general rule. It depends entirely on what is appropriate in terms of your own
If you respond by trying to break free, you will begin to feel very restless. Events and
circumstances will make it clear that you have neglected much that must be done, and the
structures of your life that have held you back will seem intolerable. You can no longer
accept barriers such as responsibilities that you have put up with for years, onerous duties
or perhaps a built-in fear of breaking away from the established order. Consequently, if you
react in this way, this is often a time of breaking away and leaping out into a new freedom.
This is often accompanied by a change of residence or the breakup of relationships. And
however catastrophic these changes seem to others, they are usually quite fortunate and allow
everything to work out for the best.
If you respond in the second manner, you will also seek to expand your life and find new
freedom, but for a variety of reasons you will not overthrow the structures of your life in
order to do so. Instead you will seize every opportunity to build new structures and expand
the already existing order. Whatever you build up now, either in yourself or in the outer
world, will be lasting.
Jupiter conjunction Neptune: A sense of compassion
From 24 July 2014 until 2 August 2014: During this time your ideals will be aroused as they
seldom are at other times, and you will approach life with a greater sense of compassion.
People who cannot help themselves will win your sympathy especially, whether you encounter
them personally or through working with others in a charitable enterprise. Your primary
concern is to help individuals by giving them a hand. You may be less concerned with
transforming the social order that has given rise to the conditions that oppress the people
you are dealing with.
Your interest in spiritual, religious and mystical philosophy is likely to grow at this time,
and you may become involved in a group that is studying these subjects. This world no longer
seems to meet your needs adequately, so you have to turn inward to find a world that can give
you what you really need. Here, too, you will discover that the ego's drives for self-
gratification and self-assertion may be the major factors in preventing you from getting what
you want out of life. At this time the demands of the ego must be quieted at least a little,
so you can hear what the inner self is really saying.
Unfortunately there is another side to this influence, which you should watch for. Some
people develop a feeling of false happiness, like living in the dream world of an opium
smoker, with no basis in reality. You may feel that everything is all right when it is not,
or you may feel that you can do anything you want and get away with it. That is why this
influence is often associated with gambling or taking risks with limited resources, often with
disastrous results. This is not a very good time for investments, not because you will
necessarily lose out, but because you just won't know for sure, and you will be tempted to
gamble even when it is a poor risk. For the same reason, in business deals be sure you are
not the victim of a massive misrepresentation.
With this influence it is best to avoid purely selfish concerns, for when your actions are
thus motivated you are most likely to encounter its negative side.
Jupiter square Mars: Insight and skill
Beginning of October 2014 until mid-June 2015: This influence gives you a great deal of
confidence and makes you feel very self-assertive. Usually this is all right, but some people
will express this energy by becoming arrogant and domineering. Also be wary of
overconfidence, resulting in attempts to do things that are simply beyond you.
Intemperance in almost any activity could completely undo the basically positive nature of
this influence. Avoid exaggeration and try to maintain some sense of proportion. If you can
do all of this, you will be able to get more work done than usual, and you will do it well.
You will be able to accomplish things that you are usually afraid to tackle because you feel
inadequate, and you can take the initiative when you would otherwise wait for others to take
With care and planning and adequate restraint, this influence is a general sign of fortunately
timed action that takes advantage of the proper moment and makes the most of it. And this is
not luck on your part, but insight and skill. All of this requires preparation, however,
because impulsive actions at this time are not likely to be very effective.
It may be particularly important to placate persons in authority. If you act precipitately,
they may become alarmed and think of you as a threat, whether or not you intend to be. Of
course, if you do consciously intend to be a threat, this influence could be a help, assuming
again that you have planned carefully. But if you are not conscious of your intentions, you
may experience opposition from others without ever quite understanding why.
Jupiter sextile Ascendant: Efforts with friends
End of October 2014 until end of June 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.
