Neptune opposition Venus: Obscure problems
Mid-March 2014 until beginning of January 2016: During this time, love relationships,
especially, may cause problems because either you or your partner has an unrealistic attitude
about the relationship. Disillusionment and disappointment are the likely result when the
romantic cloud lifts and the truth about the relationship becomes clear. All of us idealize a
new lover to a certain extent, for that is part of the normal process of falling in love. But
this influence indicates that the problem can be much more severe because of your
unwillingness to accept reality as it is. You are inclined to look for partners and
relationships that can help you escape from the humdrum, everyday world into a magical world
of fantasy and beautiful illusions. But unfortunately you must pick your partner from the
human race, and the people who can truly fulfill this kind of dream are extremely rare. So
you create a beautiful image in your imagination and pretend that a specific person fits the
image. And you are likely to persist, even though everyone can see, even you if you open your
eyes, that your loved one is not what you fantasize. This is the most extreme manifestation
of this influence, and it is not an uncommon reaction.
This influence can create other kinds of relationship difficulties as well, such as obscure
problems within an existing relationship. For example, you may find it difficult to
communicate with your partner, or one of you may do something behind the other's back, thus
undermining your mutual confidence.
The most useful effect of this influence is that it stimulates the creative imagination. In
fact, every illusion or delusion is really only a misuse of creative imagination or a
confusion of imagination with truth. If you can keep truth and imagination separate you will
derive great benefit from this period, especially if you are intrinsically creative. Artistic
creativity is heightened by this influence, and even your relationships can be more
interesting, if you don't lose sight of their real nature.
Pluto square Sun: Power struggles
Mid-March 2014 until beginning of November 2016: This time is a test of your strength and the
energy with which you have established yourself in your world. The test may take many forms,
but in any form it will require that your sense of personhood be in reasonably good shape; in
other words, you should know who and what you are. If you do not really know yourself, this
time is likely to bring about crises that will cause major changes in your life.
One form that it may take is a test of your self-control as you try to get ahead in the world.
This influence stimulates your ambition and desire for power out of all proportion. If there
is a ruthless side to your personality that will do anything to destroy opposition, it will
come out now. But, at the same time, forces in your world will try very hard to stop you. To
overcome the forces arrayed against you, you will require extreme ruthlessness. On the other
hand, you may know precisely what you need to succeed and go after just that, being willing to
compromise and make your success also the success of others. This is the proper course to
take, but unfortunately this kind of accommodating spirit is not often found.
If you are of a more retiring disposition, you may experience this time quite differently.
Instead of being the person on a power trip, you may have to contend with someone else who is.
Here again you must determine exactly your rights and needs as an individual and stand up for
them. The problem here is not that you will overstep your bounds but that someone else will.
But you must fight or at least resist. Either of these power struggles is most likely to
occur with someone in authority.
This energy may also surface in the outer expression of your life. You may be surrounded by
conditions of breakdown and decay, which are an outward sign of the need to rebuild within.
Under extreme conditions, this influence can release its energy in a single explosive burst as
an injury or physical assault. Certainly you should avoid conflicts with others that may lead
to physical fighting, because the energies here are quite dangerous.
Saturn trine MC: Checking your attitudes
Beginning of February 2015 until mid-November 2015: This time is usually characterized by
self-confidence and assurance. You are able to see where you are going now and to obtain help
in getting there. At the same time you are very concerned with knowing yourself on a deep
inward level, usually to facilitate achieving your ambition.
This is a time when you try to rely primarily on yourself. You will not refuse help from
others, but it is more desirable to go it alone or at least on your own. You need to prove
yourself to yourself and, to a lesser extent, to others. It is also necessary to establish
patterns in your life now that will lead to accomplishment later on. If you are still active
in your profession, you must develop disciplined work habits and learn specific ways to deal
with situations that arise. Here too you must rely on yourself, because you will be able to
judge your effectiveness only if you know that what you are doing is entirely your own.
Most people are rather conservative in their ways of doing things at this time. You may be
rather reluctant to experiment with new ways, but that is a pitfall. This should be a time
for making careful and considered changes. Such changes can be made voluntarily and without
much difficulty now, but later they will be forced upon you in a manner that may be quite
unpleasant. Getting into a rut now will ensure the survival of inappropriate behavior
patterns, which will create trouble later on.
You should specifically examine your attitudes toward authority figures, work and achievement,
responsibility, change and most important, although somewhat abstract, your attitude toward
reality. If you are trying to live by attitudes that you have been told to have and that are
not really yours, you will feel tense and uneasy when you think about them. Normally you
suppress these feelings because you consider it important to maintain your attitudes. But
these are the attitudes that have to be changed, because they signify that your thinking is
divided about that issue and that you cannot really put energy into making that part of your
Neptune square Uranus: Unpleasant revelations
Beginning of March 2015 until end of December 2016: During this time you will be subject to
sudden changes of mood, and your opinions on many matters will change suddenly as well. You
will be constantly exposed to other dimensions of reality that you may have long suspected
were important in your life but were reluctant to acknowledge. This effect can manifest
itself at many different levels. On the lowest level, it may simply indicate that something
you have been trying to keep secret from others will be revealed suddenly. If this happens,
it is just as well, because the secret was in some way limiting you and preventing you from
growing. Or a secret that someone else has kept from you may be revealed with the same
consequence. In either case your initial reaction is likely to be upset, not pleasure,
because you really don't want to deal with what is revealed. However, if you do deal with it,
your life will be greatly improved.
At another level, this influence will expose you to truths that you have never been willing to
recognize about the world in general. You may discover that some point of view you have held
is totally wrong. A person whom you had a definite opinion of, either positive or negative,
may be quite different from what you thought.
At yet another level, this influence can expose you to profound psychic and mystical
experiences, which also will upset you because they challenge your way of looking at the
world. However, you should be careful about getting really involved in the occult or other
spiritual-mystical fields. During this time you are likely to be too upset to handle the
knowledge you gain in any reasonable way. Do not attempt to place the insights you encounter
into any kind of system. Allow yourself time to assimilate the material spontaneously and
make it part of you. Then, after the effects of this influence have passed, you can begin to
study these matters systematically if you still want to.
Uranus sextile Mars: Personal needs
Mid-May 2015 until mid-January 2017: This influence will give you opportunities to assert
yourself and your individuality and do things that you have never done before. The keynote of
this period is "freedom to be myself!"
Your physical energy level will be stimulated, so that you will be able to work quite hard at
any task you want to do. You will not be in the mood for disciplined, self-sacrificing kinds
of work. It is not that you are feeling selfish or self-indulgent but that you really
understand your personal needs and are unwilling to compromise.
You may be suddenly released from restrictions that have been holding you back from many
activities you would like to engage in that would truly help your personal development, and
this will give you a new freedom to act. At other times you may have felt the need to lash
out and rebel against obstacles in your life, but now that is not necessary. The
opportunities to get rid of the obstacles arise of their own accord. However, the
opportunities carry an obligation to take advantage of them in order to understand more
completely what you are capable of doing. This influence will enlarge your idea of your
capabilities, which has probably been too limited in the past. You will enjoy taking chances
and risks even if you have always acted conservatively, and you will probably discover that
you have been too careful before.
Freedom is important to you now in every way. You will probably be attracted to others who
have experienced similar restrictions in life, and you will work with them. If you have ever
been attracted to movements for social reform and change, it is especially likely that you
will do this now. Having found out more about your capabilities by getting rid of
restrictions, you will enjoy stirring up others so that they can find that out for themselves,
too. However, you must recognize that the limitations you have encountered in life were not
put there solely by powers beyond your control. You at least acquiesced to them, either out
of fear, a sense of personal inadequacy or a desire to be careful.
Jupiter square Mars: Insight and skill
Mid-November 2015 until end of July 2016: 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.
