The report was generated for 6 months starting from December 2013 with the following birth
data: male, born on 6 December 1949 at 12:55 pm in New Bedford MA, Alaska.
Your sun sign is Sagittarius. This is the sign in which the Sun is in your birth chart. Your
Ascendant is in Aries, and your Moon is in Gemini.
Jupiter square Neptune: False optimism
Mid-September 2013 until mid-May 2014: At this time you will work very hard to actualize your
ideals and find a concrete way to put your spiritual views into practice in the real world.
But you can expect the real world to put up some resistance to your ideas. Among other
things, you will be challenged to demonstrate that your ideals are not just irrelevant,
impractical abstractions. You will also have to demonstrate that your views are based on
realism rather than some dream world, which is where you may very well be now. At any rate,
this time will give you the opportunity to find out.
You will give readily when called upon now, because this influence signifies a great
generosity to people who are less fortunate than yourself. But you may not be very discreet
in choosing the people on whom you lavish your charity. Some people can be helped, and it
would be worthwhile to spend your time on them. But others are not worth wasting time on,
although with this influence you may not be able to tell the difference.
On another level, this influence can signify the kind of false optimism that makes you take
foolish risks, especially with limited resources. In any financial dealings be very careful
that everything is exactly as represented to you by others. Otherwise you could be taken for
This time is a test of your grasp of reality and your ability to translate ideals into
practice. There is no reason to assume that you will not pass the test, but you do have to be
Religious or spiritual delusions are another danger of this influence. You may be tempted to
run after false messiahs or teachers whose ability to dazzle with spiritual phrases exceeds
their ability to teach you how to cope with your life.
Jupiter sextile Saturn: Prudence and caution
End of September 2013 until end of May 2014: During this time you approach expansion and
growth from a very careful and pragmatic point of view. Everything you do, every plan you
make is characterized by prudence and caution. You are interested in what could be, but this
concern is well balanced by your concern for what is already. You are neither idealistic nor
You do not see duties and obligations as limitations upon your life but as routes to achieving
wisdom and maturity. This is a fundamentally correct view, but you must balance your need for
freedom with your need to get work done in order to see it that way. That is what you are
doing now. You are oriented to work and duty, but you can also see that certain apparent
responsibilities are really not validly yours. And you are not willing to take on someone
else's share of the work unless you can see real benefit from doing so.
In financial terms, you are very thrifty at this time. You can see what the best investments
are, and you proceed very carefully while putting your money into them. Therefore these
investments are more likely than most to work out well.
During this period you will discover how to turn your ideals into reality, partly because you
can see which goals and ideals are realistic and which are not. You discard whatever is not
realistic, and you work for your goals very patiently, laying a solid groundwork for success.
This is usually a good time, because your prudence and thrift enable you to separate the real
opportunities from the illusory ones and thereby make real gains.
Saturn square Pluto: Shedding your skin
Beginning of December 2013 until mid-September 2014: This can be a difficult time in your
life. Because of circumstances and other people, you find it very difficult to make the
changes you would like to make in the world around you. For example, your ambitions may be
frustrated. People in authority may try to prevent you from accomplishing what you want.
Financially, you will probably have to curb expenses because you simply do not have the
resources. Sometimes the experience of this transit is much like struggling against chains
that hold you down. The temptation is to resist and struggle with all your might.
However, resisting is not the best way to handle this energy, because that would set in motion
destructive powers beyond your control. This influence is sometimes associated with violent
incidents, so take care. The best way to handle it is with some degree of detachment.
Understandably you will be quite upset with some of the obstacles that crop up now, but regard
them as a way of finding out which areas of your life are working and which are not. This
influence usually represents a call to eliminate the unnecessary and superfluous elements in
your life. It requires that you get rid of the dead and useless structures. If you do it
voluntarily, it will be easier.
When this period is over, you will emerge from the crisis considerably tougher than you were.
Conserve your resources, and if you are in financial difficulty, reorganize your life so that
you can get along with less.
Saturn sextile Saturn: Limited warranty
Beginning of December 2013 until end of September 2014: This is a time of equilibrium and
balance in your life, because now you have a pretty good idea of how to handle your own world.
Events will run along more or less easily during this time. But it is important to note that
it will not necessarily be an especially happy or peaceful time. Our lives are directed by
our own demands much more than we realize, but very often those demands are unconscious. We
would often be horrified if we knew what we are really trying to do. We try to protect
ourselves and what we feel belongs to us from "threats" that often are not real threats
according to adult criteria. Yet we structure our world according to them. This influence
only guarantees that you will be successful in patterning your world. If you are very unhappy
at this time, you had best get in touch with what you are really doing.
This can be a time when you are successfully approaching your main conscious goals in life.
Or it can be a time when you are being run largely by unconscious "programs," as if you were a
computer. Usually you will experience a little of both of these effects. However, in the
long run the positive possibilities are more useful to know about. Concerning the negative
side of this influence, suffice it to say that the difficult and unsatisfactory aspects of
your life that you are experiencing now require you to look into yourself more closely.
At this time you are particularly good at working with other people. You are able to see your
individuality and differentness in a way that makes it possible for you to work with others in
a complementary way so that neither you nor they feel competitive. You can work just as well
with people who are above you and with those at your own level.
You approach your own goals methodically and practically, for you are not particularly
idealistic at this point. You are much more concerned about how to achieve what you want in
concrete practical terms. Use this time well, for it gives you the opportunity to lay a
foundation that will protect you in the future.
Saturn sextile Mars: Unstinting labor
Beginning of January 2014 until mid-October 2014: At this time, controlled activity in any
aspect of your life can do a great deal for you. You are able to direct your effort toward
building a project slowly and thoroughly, so that whatever you build at this time will
probably last. Your attitude toward your objectives is reasonable and practical, which helps
greatly in attaining what you want. This is not a time for big ideas, but rather for very
thorough accomplishments in limited areas. Often it will help enormously to subordinate your
own ego drives in order to work in groups with other people now.
Your physical efforts are more disciplined at this time. You are able to work long and hard
on a task, whether it is physical or mental, and not give up until it is done. The people you
deal with will admire you for this, and you may get much more credit than people who work in a
grandiose style but less thoroughly. You find it relatively easy to accept limitations that
are imposed upon you and to work within any framework that is presented to you. This makes it
easier to work with other people.
Others may think of you as a "grind" at this time. In fact, your disciplined attitude toward
work makes you a very formidable person, because you will accomplish whatever you set out to
do, not by luck, but by hard, unstinting labor.
This influence favors hard work for relatively modest objectives, all forms of careful,
precise work - polishing, metal work, working with stones - and work that requires very
Uranus trine Sun: Hungry for change
Mid-April 2014 until mid-March 2015: Sometimes it is very upsetting to make fundamental
changes in your life. But at other times you feel that change is creative and exciting, and
this is one of those times. You are eager for change and hope it will lead you to a life that
is more exciting, interesting and alive. You look to new ideas and new experiences for
insights that will make your life more real. Consequently this is an excellent time to begin
studying disciplines that will allow you to develop and grow as a human being. Such
disciplines can include encounter or group therapy, yoga or other spiritual disciplines,
astrology or any other subject that allows you to see yourself in a new light and to grow in
You may encounter new relationships, new friends or even a new love that will allow you to be
yourself more than ever before. Your everyday being is compatible with change now, and you
are hungry for it in every possible way.
This is a good time to adopt a new physical regimen - a new exercise program, new health
habits or a different kind of nutrition - that will allow your body to grow and develop.
Break out of old physical habits that have been damaging your body. You might conceivably be
able to quit smoking or drop some other physically debilitating habit at this time.
You will be successful in every way that you reach out to encounter new experience. Do not
allow conservatism or insecurity to deprive you of this great opportunity. Now you can make
changes that will make your life better later on.
