Neptune trine Neptune: Sowing time
End of April 2015 until mid-February 2017: This influence is a chance to examine your life and
to see within it the seeds for something greater than you have imagined. This greatness is
not in the material realm, nor will it give you power over others. Instead your opportunity
is to see your life in a spiritual dimension that you have never before perceived. This can
manifest itself in a number of ways.
First of all, you may discover an increased empathy for the people in your everyday life. You
can put yourself into another's place in a way that you have never been able to do before; you
can see and, more importantly, feel what someone else feels. Consequently you will have more
sympathy and compassion for other people's problems.
Your compassion springs from a realization of the essential unity of yourself and all being.
For most people, this is not an entirely conscious realization. You may feel an increased
involvement with others, but you don't quite know where it has come from. On the other hand,
this can be a conscious feeling, in which case you may become more attracted to mystical
philosophies and metaphysics, which try to verbalize what you are beginning to experience.
You may experience a reawakened interest in religion, even if this has long been dormant in
your life. Possibly you may even have a profound psychic or mystical experience.
Even if by temperament you are not inclined to mysticism, you will experience its effects as
increased idealism and an increased willingness to work for the kind of world you want to see.
Whatever else may happen, you will feel more capable of selfless actions in your relationships
with others. You will be willing to help, seeking little or nothing in return because your
own ego seems less important to you now.
Saturn conjunction Mercury: Thinking small
End of December 2015 until beginning of October 2016: This is a time of serious, heavy, even
pessimistic thinking. Communication with others becomes more significant, but also more
difficult. In fact this influence often means saying goodbye. You take life more seriously
than usual and look at things more seriously, but you run the risk of losing your sense of
Your mental and intellectual viewpoint is narrowed by this influence. You are likely to
concern yourself with a smaller range of ideas, but you are more likely to think about them
thoroughly. You are beginning a major new cycle of ideas and opinions, of communicating in
new ways. This consumes your mental energy and limits your ability to range over a large
number of topics. Also you root out old ideas and notions that have outlived their usefulness
in your life. Your mind is very disciplined, but with this discipline and narrowing of focus
there is the danger of thinking too narrowly. You may overlook important alternatives because
of your tendency to concentrate single-mindedly at this time. Also, with your tendency toward
depressed thoughts you may overlook possibilities that seem too idealistic or risky; probably
they are not at all - it is just that you are thinking "small."
Nevertheless this is an excellent time for working a single idea through completely, planning
very carefully and realizing ideas that can have important consequences many years from now.
When dealing with yourself and others, be careful that you do not become too concerned with an
unattainable perfection. One effect of the this influence can be to make you too exacting and
critical, with the result that you alienate others.
Saturn square MC: An evaluation of goals
Beginning of January 2016 until mid-October 2016: 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.
Jupiter square Moon: Magnanimity
From 17 August 2016 until 26 August 2016: 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.
Jupiter trine Jupiter: An opportunity
From 17 September 2016 until 26 September 2016: This influence usually represents a time of
optimism and positive thinking in your life. You seem to be at a quiet point of balance that
enables you to look over the affairs of your life and get a good perspective on them.
Therefore, it is a good time to make long-range plans and to reorganize. You should use this
time to gain new perspectives through education or travel or by participating in one of the
consciousness raising activities or groups that exist now.
This is a time of psychological and physical equilibrium. If you have recently been ill in
either body or mind, this influence will help tremendously with the healing process.
This is also a good time to examine your ideals and your goals, for it may be possible to
actualize them in various ways now. At other times there is too much tension in your life or
too much resistance from others. If you are involved in any movement for reform, now is a
good time to take some positive action. Or you might become more involved in religion or
philosophy, because you need to know much that is beyond the apparent order of things.
It is quite possible that you will do nothing during this time, because it gives you a feeling
of balance but no drive to do anything in particular. You have an unusual sense of ease and
relaxation now. This is also a good time to travel, both for relaxation and for educational
The important point to remember with this influence is that it is fundamentally an
opportunity. You will not feel driven by any energies, nor will you feel any resistance to
your efforts to do something. You can make great use of this time, but you have to take the
Saturn opposition Pluto: Hold on
End of December 2016 until mid-October 2017: This influence can have two opposite effects.
You will experience one or the other or a combination. It represents the culmination of
efforts begun fourteen years ago. This can be the peak of their effectiveness in your
material universe. But it can also be the time when it becomes clear that those efforts did
not succeed. Most commonly you will experience a mixture of these two effects.
On one hand, the corresponding influence fourteen years ago was the beginning of certain efforts to build structures that would allow you to fulfill your ambitions and give you control over your life. At that time you excluded certain areas of activity so you could focus more effectively on the areas you wanted to influence strongly. Now the consequences of those decisions and actions are manifest. You have succeeded in making your energies felt in your world and you have the control you want and need. But you have to work extremely hard, and you have tremendous responsibilities that you cannot let down. In struggling to get to your present position, you may have triggered off opposing forces, possibly enemies, which are waiting to move in when you show signs of slackening. The best thing to do is hold on, maintain your efforts and do everything in your power to conciliate these forces. Make it clear that they have nothing to gain by your defeat and everything to win by your victory. Make yourself indispensable to them.
If this is a time when your expectations are disappointed - that is, if the other side of this influence is manifest - you will feel that something in your surroundings gets in your way every time you try to make a move. As described above, you have aroused opposition from others. But if you have not been successful in reaching your goals, the forces of opposition will be stronger than you are. The best thing to do in this case is to stop resisting, find out what you can salvage from the current crisis, and start moving in new directions.
