Neptune opposition Venus: Obscure problems
Beginning of April 2012 until beginning of February 2014: 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.
Saturn sextile MC: Cautious action
End of November 2012 until mid-September 2013: During this time you will work to establish
yourself more solidly in the eyes of the world, your community and your friends.
Inwardly you are able to arrive at a clearer idea of who you are now and how you measure up to
your own expectations and those of the community. Your goals and expectations may be set
rather high at this time, so you should be careful not to set yourself a task that is beyond
you, or worse, one that you don't really want to undertake. Under this influence you are
powerfully directed by your early conditioning about duty, responsibility and obligation
toward others, and therefore you are quite likely to pursue a course of action to fulfill what
you think others expect of you, rather than one that is appropriate to you.
This time is usually marked by cautious action. You are just getting the feel of managing
your life, and you do not want to upset everything now. You are anxious for material
achievements that others can recognize and that you can point to as if to say, "This is what I
During this time you work best by yourself, but you are conscious of how your work fits into a
larger scheme involving other people. It is just that you prefer not to manage others as well
as yourself at this time.
Nevertheless, you pursue your objectives with unflagging zeal and energy. It is not likely
that you will make any significant changes in your goals now. This should be a time of
accomplishment, if you put enough energy into the task, and if you are like most people, you
Jupiter conjunction IC: Your inward needs
From 23 July 2013 until 2 August 2013: 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.
Jupiter sextile Jupiter: In good working order
End of August 2013 until end of April 2014: This is a time of balance and equilibrium in your
life, when all your affairs seem to run smoothly and without much effort on your part. It is
a time when you can relax and take it easy for a while, knowing that your life is in good
working order. This is also a time when growth seems to occur without much effort - growth in
consciousness, in your social life or wherever you feel that personal growth is important.
But this is not really a time when you should just enjoy yourself. You should do that, to be
sure, but you should also be examining your life to see what needs to be done. It is
important to think this way now because the equilibrium that is characteristic of this period
enables you to look about yourself with reasonable calm and detachment. It is much harder to
achieve a perspective when you are in the middle of some major and possibly chaotic change.
This is a good time to achieve perspective in all possible senses of the word. It is a good
time for education, either formal or informal, for getting in touch with yourself through
self-awareness studies, or for seeing the larger world through travel.
Business transactions or negotiations are also favored now. Legal affairs also usually run
Jupiter square Sun: A matter of self-control
Beginning of 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.
Jupiter square Ascendant: On the lookout
Beginning of October 2013 until beginning of June 2014: This is usually an excellent time for
most kinds of relationships, but there are some pitfalls. Basically this influence signifies
a desire to grow and advance through contacts with others. Probably you are willing to give
as much as you get, although in some people this influence triggers a desire for advantages
through others without giving anything in return. In fact as they get ahead, such people act
arrogantly toward everyone, even those who helped them. This causes others to reject them,
and when they hit hard times there is no one to help them out.
But this result is totally unnecessary, and all you have to do to avoid it is to keep a sense
of humility and recognize what others have done for you. With this influence you have the
potential to become a truly better person, but only if you keep these warnings in mind.
Quite frequently this influence brings a seemingly "lucky" chance through a friend or
associate. But it is not luck so much as the fact that you are very sharply on the lookout
for opportunities that can benefit you. Your sense of timing is very acute, and your
sensitivity to others and their needs is greater than usual. That is one reason why it is so
bad to ignore others' needs, because you don't even have the excuse of ignorance.
Benefits can come to you in either your personal and domestic life or in your public life.
There may be an opportunity to make money or to make improvements in your home that will make
it much more pleasant. Or you may meet people who will help you learn more about the world
and expand your view of it in various ways. You have to be willing to let this happen,
however, which means you must be receptive. This is another area in which being arrogant
brings the risk that you will get nothing of lasting value out of this period.
