JUPITER transit House Two

Enters on Jan 4

This can be a tricky, even ruinous, period unless certain circumstances are allowed to prevail. Under this influence money is or becomes the source of pleasure, which is fine if you can afford to spend it. If this is not the case, restrictions must be rigorously applied to all purchases. The potential flow of expenditures may be distracted however, if you can make an enjoyable experience out of learning how to conserve and invest current assets, as well as finding ways to increase your income. You may experience an increased tendency to exaggerate your wealth or status to impress others– a tendency that may tempt you to indulge in unnecessary purchases of luxury items and other status symbols. Other expenditures at this time are likely to involve higher education, political interests, religious or spiritual activities, travel, publishing, and cultural pursuits.

 

Transit URANUS trine natal Saturn

Jan 1 through Jan 18

Your accumulated experience, organization, past efforts, and hard work are emphasized during this period. People and circumstances, likely to be quite different or more unorthodox, come along to provide you with recognition and rewards. It is possible that the present circumstances may tend to upset your traditional structures or ideas but the key is to incorporate the old with the new– getting rid of what is no longer viable or useful and adding the benefits of new people, new ideas, and new technology. All of this may be quite unexpected and out of your control. You cannot entice or manipulate people or events to bring about your own good fortune. They will come on their own, and then it is up to you to react expediently.

 

Transit URANUS trine natal Neptune

Jan 1 through Jan 10

This is a favorable period but must be thought of as more of a broad-based influence that benefits those in your generation rather than you as an individual. The potential of this influence is to encourage favorable trends in charitable institutions and their activities, civil rights and minority issues, as well as a return of romantic and idealistic trends in thinking and art. There is a reaching out for greater spiritual awareness in one form or another. If these particular areas are of unusual importance in your life’s work or in the lives of those who greatly influence you, then you may reap benefits in a more personal way during this period than might otherwise be expected.

 

Transit URANUS sextile natal Mercury

Feb 23 through Apr 2, Exact on Mar 13

The current influence is not one that is likely to measurably change the way things are going unless other, stronger influences occurring at this time promote a similar atmosphere. It adds a positive energy in the form of opportunity that can lead to travel or a chance to learn new methods. Because of the particular nature of this influence, the chance to travel may be to rather unusual places and the methods are apt to be nontraditional or unorthodox. You may get either the chance to acquire unusual or unorthodox knowledge and information, or to acquire knowledge in some unique or different way. It is important to realize however, that what you’ll be offered is opportunity that can later become the reality, not the reality itself. Other opportunities to look for during this period may involve new technology, activities and skills related to computers and trade or commerce.

 

Transit NEPTUNE conjoined natal Moon

Mar 31 through Jun 26

During the long period in which this influence prevails many other factors will contribute to its ultimate impact: your age, maturity, past experiences, current circumstances, and of course, other planetary aspects that also occur. In spite of all the other factors that must be considered however, there is no question that the targets of this particular influence are home, family, and your emotional life in general. There are positive as well as negative potentials. During this long-term phase you may develop a sense of rootlessness, being unable to make strong emotional commitments to anything or anyone, or being unable to get others to make such commitments to you. Family relationships and other close ties, especially with maternal or strong female figures in your life, can become eroded on the one hand; while on the other, they may become much closer, more spiritual, and even clairvoyant. You may tend toward the fanciful or encounter some element of mystery or confusion when it comes to your family background and history. It may be difficult for you to pinpoint exactly what you want or what will make you happy. Creative and promotional talents can flourish. Spirituality increases. The sensitivity of your instincts and intuition can be developed to a remarkable degree. Trying to stick to the routine business of life is going to be a difficult struggle. Self-pity, guilt, and deception can become pervasive. Ambitions and enthusiasm may be undermined by physical indulgence and addictions. Physical complaints may be difficult to diagnose or may be caused by psychosomatic reactions. This influence also suggests that your home during this period may be near the ocean, penal institution, hospital, or in an isolated spot. It also indicates that your home may be threatened by flood and water damage. It is a time to keep a closer eye on all your possessions since the potential to lose them through carelessness or theft increases. Dwell on the negative possibilities only enough to protect yourself from falling victim to them. Concentrate your efforts on encouraging the positive potentials.

 

Transit SATURN trine natal Moon

Apr 1 through Apr 22, Exact on Apr 12

The potential of this period is fortunate. Though it does not rule out the possibility of an astounding piece of exciting luck, the odds favor a more quiet, but extremely beneficial time. Emotional levels can be high and stimulating, but more likely to be unusually content and reflective. This is a period to use the maturity and experiences you have developed to decide present actions and plan for the future. Decisions made and actions taken under the present influence will no doubt be successful. It is also a good period to gain and to apply patience and understanding to help solidify emotional commitments that you give as well as those you receive. Under this influence fortunate consequences are likely to accompany activities related to nutrition, home, domestic items, real estate, women, babies and young children, and historical preservation. To take maximum advantage of this positive period fulfilling long-term needs should be more of a priority than seeking instant gratification. For the most part, the routine of your everyday affairs as well as the functioning of physical and mechanical systems will run smoothly and efficiently. Supervisors, authority figures, and those more mature and experienced than you may be the means of your good fortune through their assistance or advice.

 

JUPITER transit House Three

Enters on Apr 26

This is an excellent period to develop your knowledge and skills with computers or any type of machinery and mechanical equipment. Communications as well as travel increase at this time– widening your circle of contacts with others and encouraging the exchange of ideas and information. Under this influence you may want to expand your artistic and design talent or writing ability. Other potentials include greater interest in neighbors or community activities as well as increased contacts with siblings. Your status with neighbors may increase in some way, and there is also the possibility that you may actually seek to relocate to a more influential neighborhood. As a secondary potential of this period, your neighbors and siblings may become more prosperous. Participation in meetings and discussion groups may demand more of your time and attention. Reading increases. A growing pile of magazines, newspapers, and mail may clutter your environment. If such equipment happens to fit your needs and interests at this time, the possibility increases that you will acquire telephones, computers, answering machines, and other communication devises.

 

Transit URANUS square natal Jupiter

Apr 24 through Jul 13

This period tends to bring circumstances over which you have no control. The actions and decisions of others may cause disruption of education or other intellectual endeavors such as writing or publishing. Your usual informational resources may suddenly disappear or new ones suddenly established. Long distance travel may be interrupted or suddenly become a necessity. The status of your spiritual development or economic expansion may be upset. Under this influence your generosity may be erratic or misplaced; indulgent when you need to be more prudent and too prudent when you need to be more generous. Increased status or recognition may be given to you even though it may not be deserved, or if it is deserved, you unaccountably fail to receive it. Though the circumstances you are apt to encounter are unpredictable, the interruption or changes they bring should not be viewed as permanent or capable of preventing you from making further progress.

 

Transit SATURN sextile natal Venus

May 5 through May 21, Exact on May 13

This is a good time for mixing business with pleasure. Under this influence social contacts can lead to business opportunities, and conversely, business contacts or activities may lead to opportunity for entertainment or socializing. Watch for other situations that may lead to possible partnerships or joint ventures. If you are as attractive as possible and your behavior polite and charming, you will make an impression on the people you encounter. in this period, especially on those with authority and positions of seniority. As a result, such favorable impressions may lead to their valuable cooperation and assistance.

 

Transit JUPITER square natal Venus

May 18 through May 29, Exact on May 24

Values and priorities get confused in this period. It can result in either being the perpetrator or the victim of shameless social climbing, ostentatiousness, laziness, wastefulness, and overindulgence. Being successful with regard to a partnership and other alliances, joint ventures, social events, and romance does not promise to be an easy matter, but there is nevertheless the potential for progress or even success if you choose to persevere. Legal matters and negotiating contracts and other agreements during this period may in the end, turn to your advantage, but self-serving goals in the guise of concessions or other snags might have to be dealt with first.

 

Transit JUPITER sextile natal Sun

May 20 through May 31, Exact on May 25

During this period the people and situations you encounter are likely to offer opportunity to expand the range of your personal influence, to explore new ways or reasons to exert your will on the way things are going, and give you a chance to be proud of yourself. The nature of this period is such that you do not or should not wait for such an opportunity to be handed to you, though that is also a potential. If the chance you need does not come along find the best means and time available to create one. The implication of this influence is that your efforts will eventually lead to success. Do not hesitate to impose your own priorities and defend your integrity and principles.

 

Transit JUPITER conjoined natal Uranus

May 20 through May 30, Exact on May 25

People and circumstances you encounter during this period can make you more aware of freedom and independence. This can mean physical freedom as well as independence of thought, or both. It cannot be predicted exactly how this influence will inspire you, but one potential suggests you may be encouraged to join or actively participate in groups or group causes. If no serious factors destroy the otherwise fortunate potential of this influence, such activities as you undertake with groups may prove highly beneficial. Your attitudes and approach in dealing with people are more egalitarian and outgoing these days. Under this influence you seek to gain more understanding of or expand your role in the lives of others; as friend, parent, lover, or associate. The potentials for this period suggest successful efforts if you are involved in finance, fund-raising, computers, technology, astrology, travel (especially the airlines), and group activities.

 

Transit PLUTO trine natal Venus

Jun 16 through Oct 31, Exact on Aug 4, Sep 16

The energy of this long-term influence is favorable and the benefits and good fortune that come your way during this period are likely to have implications for your success in the future. This means the efforts you make during this period to establish solid values and priorities, generate a spirit of cooperation and equality, increase your ability to interact well with others, pursue interests you feel make you more interesting or attractive as an individual– as well as your efforts to initiate such activities as joint ventures, legal matters, public relations, and counseling– will no doubt be successful. However, just as important as any immediate victories you may have, is the fact that these efforts will have a significant role to play in giving you the power or influence to maintain, or regain if necessary, success in these same areas at some point in the future. During this period, your partnership (business or marriage) and other alliances, romantic attachments, and female relationships in general are favored– and they may also be the means of your own good fortune.

 

Transit SATURN sextile natal Pluto

Jun 19 through Jul 5, Exact on Jun 27

The potential influence of current circumstances is likely to pass unnoticed, unless you are engaged at this time in some intense mental, emotional, or physical activity. If such a struggle is in fact the case, you may encounter people and situations that offer opportunity to increase your patience and determination. Ultimately it can mean you will gain even greater control, quite possibly through the help and advice of those older and wiser.

 

Transit JUPITER square natal Neptune

Jun 21 through Jun 30, Exact on Jun 26

Details and reality may get short shrift these days. If you are a perfectionist, this can be an almost paralyzing influence. If you are not a perfectionist, you are likely to be overwhelmed by admonitions from those who are. The potential for being victimized by illusions of one sort or another is enhanced. Avoid those who tell you to concentrate on the “big picture. ”

 

Transit JUPITER square natal Saturn

Jun 23 through Jul 2, Exact on Jun 28

The people or situations you encounter during this period can make it seem worthwhile to forego your own mature judgment and experience, to try short cuts, or avoid the rules and regulations. Resist the temptation. In the end, the frustrations and further delays that develop will make you realize it would have been far simpler and more profitable to simply go by the book. In spite of this negative prospect however, you can still make some progress which is better than none at all.

 

Transit SATURN trine natal Neptune

Jun 28 through Jul 14, Exact on Jul 6

Aesthetic sensitivities that have been developed in the past may be put to some profitable use in current circumstances. Other situations you encounter at this time may contribute to your spiritual development, especially if it is inspired by traditional ideas and institutions. Though you may only indirectly benefit on a personal level, other fortunate potentials for this period suggest that success will favor the business of organized charities; repayment, collection, or settlement of debts; maritime science or industry; photography; and cinematography.

 

Transit SATURN trine natal Saturn

Jul 1 through Jul 18, Exact on Jul 10

Though this is a generally fortunate period, there is nothing much to be said of the certainty of benefiting from favorable circumstances or wild strikes of good luck. You may, however, expect to gain some satisfaction of finding that past reliance on work, tradition, and organization now puts you in touch with like-minded people and situations and thus a certain stability is formed. Your life style seems more comfortable.

 

JUPITER transit House Four

Enters on Jul 14

This period marks the beginning of a twelve-year cycle of learning and new experiences in one form or another. The people and circumstances that you encounter during this initial period are likely to be catalysts that inspire you to start new ventures of one sort or another at some point during the next twelve years. You may begin a business venture, or a new career. You may become involved in higher education or the study of a particular subject, receive advanced training, or engage in long distance travel, writing, publishing, or promotion– and in the end, you will greatly expand your personal, professional, and intellectual horizons. The introduction of greater spirituality and cultural appreciation into your domestic environment is also an expected result of the 12-year cycle that begins during this period. By choice or circumstance you may seek a grander, larger residence, or perhaps build additions to your present home. You may develop a greater interest and knowledge of your family history, and expand your activities and contacts with family members. You may also become involved in the sale of domestic furnishings or real estate ventures, which may or may not include your own home. Should selling your home become necessary under this influence, you are likely to benefit from the transaction.

 

Transit JUPITER square natal Mercury

Jul 12 through Jul 20, Exact on Jul 16

Progress during this period may be delayed by frustrating obstacles caused by a variety of annoyances; too much of one thing and not enough of another, wrong information, paying too much or too little attention to details, having so much time that nothing gets finished or having too little time to adequately accomplish something. Tardiness or mechanical failure can be the cause of frustration in travel. The truth is that, in spite of whatever snags develop, much can actually be accomplished, especially if you avoid jumping to conclusions, acting with too much haste, or believing you already know the answers. Patience and a prudent manner in dealing with information and communications will be rewarded with more progress in many situations than you thought could be accomplished when you first started out.

 

SATURN transit House Two

Enters on Aug 1

Because this is a relatively long-term period, many other influences will occur that may either emphasize its effect or perhaps mask it temporarily. Other significant factors that will contribute to the way you react, and ultimately to the way things turn out, include your age, maturity, and your past experiences. This influence has as much to do with the past as it does to the present. It will force you to throw out what is wasteful and to abandon unsuccessful situations, replacing them with something more solid and useful. In the case of this particular period, it means you will be constantly confronted with your values, priorities, and material assets. There is no doubt but that you will begin to question your values. You will have to deal with what you want in life versus what you do not want. Additional responsibilities will probably require additional expenditures at this time, but for the most part, this influence does not necessarily imply either the gain or the loss of monetary assets since that is not the real issue. What is important, is confronting the consequences of how you handle income and assets, and the consequences of either having placed too much emphasis on money and material assets, or having wasted or irresponsibly managed them. The results of using money as the means to escape other responsibilities will also be felt. If you have neglected relationships, you may be threatened with their loss. The same threat extends to anything you value. You are not apt to be the lucky beneficiary of an unexpected or undeserved windfall. If your income increases during this period, it is because you earned it. The highest reward for correct actions is your emergence as a more successful individual who is better prepared to handle finances. Even more importantly you’ll have clearly established priorities and unassailable values.

 

Transit JUPITER sextile natal Jupiter

Jul 24 through Aug 2, Exact on Jul 29

This influence is not thought to be of particular strength or significance. Perhaps the most that might be said is that though they may not prove instrumental in helping you succeed, the people and situations you encounter at this time will at least not provide obstacles to your own efforts to attain some goal. Considering the frustration and discouragement that can result from coping with opposing forces and other snags, perhaps the absence of such obstacles can in itself be all the benefit you need.

 

Transit SATURN sextile natal Mercury

Aug 6 through Aug 28, Exact on Aug 16

Circumstances may present opportunity to make profitable use of your knowledge or training, or to establish important business or personal contacts. However, this is not to give you the impression that such things will happen by lightning strokes of good luck. This influence is positive in that it implies a valuable opportunity, but such happenstance is connected with slow and methodical work, organization, and planning. Those you are more apt to impress, and who will ultimately be of help to you, are themselves likely to be advocates of traditional thinking with a formal, structured approach to things. Under this beneficial influence the circumstances favor making business contacts, gathering and organizing information and statistics, and investigating commercial opportunities.

 

Transit URANUS sextile natal Mercury

Aug 6 through Sep 30, Exact on Aug 31

The current influence is not one that is likely to measurably change the way things are going unless other, stronger influences occurring at this time promote a similar atmosphere. It adds a positive energy in the form of opportunity that can lead to travel or a chance to learn new methods. Because of the particular nature of this influence, the chance to travel may be to rather unusual places and the methods are apt to be nontraditional or unorthodox. You may get either the chance to acquire unusual or unorthodox knowledge and information, or to acquire knowledge in some unique or different way. It is important to realize however, that what you’ll be offered is opportunity that can later become the reality, not the reality itself. Other opportunities to look for during this period may involve new technology, activities and skills related to computers and trade or commerce.

 

Transit JUPITER sextile natal Mars

Aug 12 through Aug 22, Exact on Aug 17

Opportunity these days may come in the form of a chance for employment, to engage in physical competition, or to increase your energy and physical strength. The people and situations you encounter may not automatically hand you such chances, so you may have to manipulate current circumstances to create them for yourself. Under this influence it is your physical efforts and actions that eventually lead to success. For this reason it would seem worthwhile to be as physically enthusiastic and industrious as possible in every situation.

 

Transit JUPITER opposed natal Moon

Sep 21 through Oct 3, Exact on Sep 27

Emotional lows are the potential result of your current circumstances. But if you are possessed of a fighting spirit, the loss of hope or promise during this period can inspire you to hang in there. It is important to realize that you will probably not be able to remove the forces that oppose you, which only leaves you the option of finding a constructive way to work around them or with them. Though established relationships can be pulled apart by hysteria and vastly inflated emotional needs, they may eventually emerge the stronger for the experience. Weaker emotional commitments will, of course, be even more seriously threatened by this influence. If they are dissolved, at least it will provide the freedom for you to eventually establish new and stronger alliances. Freedom is likely to be an underlying factor in most of what occurs during this period. It would be foolhardy to expect any tangible material gains. If such is the case and your fondest desires are fulfilled, they will not be yours except at a very high price. Home and family are burdened with an overloaded emotional environment. Children are apt to be out of control. Nor is this a favorable period for speculative ventures of any kind, especially not those that deal with agricultural products, real estate, or domestic goods. There is liable to be a glut of these things in the market place. Perhaps one of the best things to keep in mind during this period is that more is not likely to mean better. Act accordingly.

 

Transit JUPITER trine natal Venus

Oct 13 through Oct 28, Exact on Oct 20

If it’s romance you seek, it’s romance you’ll find. If it’s more of a social life you want, a more active social life is what you’ll get. If you are looking for a suitable partner or ally, just the right person is apt to come along. And if they already have, this is an excellent time to marry, form a business partnership, and begin joint ventures of any kind. Other fortunate potentials of your current circumstances include success related to contracts and other legal matters, consultations, public relations, and diplomatic endeavors. Decisions are in your favor. Female friendships are enthusiastic and enjoyable. The enhancement of your sense of humor, capacity for enjoyment, and cooperative spirit should be sufficient to bring you a measure of success in almost any situation you encounter. In spite of the fortunate prospects, there are certain negative potentials to avoid. Desire for wealth and luxury may be so strong as to tempt you to reach beyond your means or compromise yourself in some other way. Overindulgence in the pursuit of pleasure has some pitfalls, not the least of which involves a wide range of minor physical complaints and illness. On the whole, however, you should prosper in many ways during this period.

 

Transit JUPITER square natal Sun

Oct 15 through Nov 1, Exact on Oct 23

You are likely to be confronted with obstacles that block your path to success. Obstacles that could very well be caused by your own ego, stubborn pride, greed, self-indulgence or overestimation. Avoiding such pitfalls in your attitude and behavior, as well as contacts with others who indulge in them, will certainly help to minimize the negative potential you may encounter under this influence. If your nature is not given to being paralyzed with anger or inaction when recognition or success appears to be delayed or denied, you will pass the tests of this period with flying colors, and no doubt obtain your goals in the process.

 

JUPITER transit House Five

Enters on Nov 14

Your capacity for enjoyment is enhanced during this period. Overindulgence is almost impossible to avoid unless you are particularly strong-willed or current circumstances impose the necessary restrictions. There is no guarantee of the lottery-winning good fortune often expected as a consequence of this influence. Certainly to be expected however, is increased desire to possess the good life, and the feeling that prosperity is within easy reach. As a result, you may purchase more luxury items, take more expensive vacations, and buy fancier or more expensive clothes. Under this influence your imagination and creativity increase, but to what end you apply them depends on your particular interests and circumstances at this time. You may, for example, be inspired to develop artistic talents as a hobby. If your work or career is of a creative nature, this can be a period of great success. Relationships and contacts with children may be greatly expanded. Romance can blossom, or in its wider application, can enhance the quality of your life in general. You are more willing to take risks, and for the most part, should emerge on the winning side of the chances you take.

Circumstances may present opportunity to make profitable use of your knowledge or training, or to establish important business or personal contacts. However, this is not to give you the impression that such things will happen by lightning strokes of good luck. This influence is positive in that it implies a valuable opportunity, but such happenstance is connected with slow and methodical work, organization, and planning.

Because this is a relatively long-term period, many other influences will occur that may either emphasize its effect or perhaps mask it temporarily. Other significant factors that will contribute to the way you react, and ultimately to the way things turn out, include your age, maturity, and your past experiences. This influence has as much to do with the past as it does to the present. It will force you to throw out what is wasteful and to abandon unsuccessful situations, replacing them with something more solid and useful. In the case of this particular period, it means you will be constantly confronted with yourself. The best way to understand this influence is to look in the mirror and ask yourself who it is you blame for your physical appearance, your personality, and your self-image. This analysis is as valid in the case of your having put too much emphasis on these things, as it is if you have neglected them. After you get through blaming childhood experiences and conditioning or whatever other people and situations come to mind, you arrive at the moment of truth; and that is that ultimately you are the one responsible. You are the one in charge of keeping your body fit and your appearance as attractive as possible. You are also the one responsible for your own behavior, attitudes, and reactions to responsibilities. You are the one who must seek to understand and correct a poor self-image as well as whatever other personal flaws you may have. The highest reward for correct actions is your emergence as a more mature, productive individual with a definite idea of what directions your personal growth must take now, and in the future. There is an additional warning. This influence can cause you to worry too much, not only about yourself but about everything else as well. To make matters worse, you are likely to be given extra responsibilities of one sort or another at this time. Be patient, Take care of things, but keep a moderate attitude or you’ll spoil the real progress you can make during this period.
