You are driven more by instinct than by reason now. You are gripped by an almost fanatical and compulsive need to make fundamental changes in your life. Your compulsive urges take many forms, but a particularly strong one is the need to rid yourself of limitations, restrictions, and obstacles. This is the time when you are motivated to move mountains. Your endurance and resoluteness of purpose are never greater than they are now. You can prepare for this time period by eliminating as many minor responsibilities and distractions as possible.

Others will admire your tenacity and determination, but friends and family are likely to complain that you only have time for your own interests and you are not devoting enough time and energy to them, and they may harbor serious doubts about your ability to make the massive changes that you are attempting. It is true, in fact, that your personal interests and ambitions dominate your attention now. But it is also true that you should follow your instincts to pursue your interests with intensity at this time. You certainly do not want to neglect your responsibilities to others, which is a tendency now, but you also must try to focus as much energy as possible on making the personal changes that are important to you. Sometimes it is difficult to strike the right balance. Also, because you are driven by instinct rather than reason, it is difficult for you to explain to others why you feel that certain things are so important to you.

The focus of your interests depends on your personal talents, background, and interests. If you are unsatisfied with your job, you may apply yourself diligently to making yourself qualified for more suitable employment, even if this requires constant effort and a grueling schedule. You may work almost to the point of exhaustion. You forego pleasures and entertainments also if necessary. If you fail to apply yourself with intensity and dedication now, which is unlikely but possible due to distractions or the inability to decide what to do, then there is much turmoil and personal crisis during this time period. In short, you must pursue your inner drives with dedication and earnestness.

You are driven more by instinct than by reason now. You are gripped by an almost fanatical and compulsive need to make fundamental changes in your life. Your compulsive urges take many forms, but a particularly strong one is the need to rid yourself of limitations, restrictions, and obstacles. Also at this point in your life you are within reach of making a major breakthrough. For some people the breakthrough is represented by the opportunity to make a significant advancement in career that provides increased stature, personal power, recognition, salary, and creativity. For some people the breakthrough involves getting out of a difficult personal relationship or overcoming serious personality problems or behavior problems, such as a poor self-concept, or drinking or drug problems.

This breakthrough does not come easily however, and there is no guarantee that the goals will be achieved. You are fired up with tremendous zeal and determination. You can be almost fanatical in your pursuit of personal goals now. However, your intense will tends to stir up opposite Natal and power struggles from others. You are brazen and indifferent to others’ needs at times and you may try to force your will on others. Also, others may try to thwart you because they feel you are being pushy, or they may be jealous or threatened by your efforts. For one reason or another, you are likely to end up in power struggles with others. Try not to incite opposite Natal or controversy at this time, and avoid the tendency to manipulate or subversively undermine the reputation or position of others. Because you are driven more by instinct than reason, you find it difficult to control your zeal and you often cannot offer rational explanations for your behavior.

Others will admire your tenacity and determination, but friends and family are likely to complain that you only have time for your own interests and you are not devoting enough time and energy to them, and they may harbor serious doubts about your ability to make the massive changes that you are attempting.

Tremendous internal changes, intense effort, relentless determination, compulsive and irrational drives, and strong assertion of your will are the key issues during this time period. This is a difficult time period when you want to make intense changes. Your life seems too mediocre and full of compromises. You feel driven by an irrepressible need to reform your life, galvanize your will, and make major changes. The urge for greater personal power, recognition, and creative expression is very strong. You are likely to step on other people’s toes in your pursuit of your personal objectives. Even if you consider yourself to be unaggressive and sensitive to the needs of others, you still will be so absorbed in your own conflicts and ambitions at this time that you will overlook the concerns and rights of others. This is, indeed, the time to shake yourself loose from deeply ingrained habits and to transform your life.

You are driven more by instinct than reason now. Your intense desire to take action and eliminate many of your old habits may sometimes drive you to do things without a clear rational understanding of why you are doing them.

The focus of your attention and concern depends on your personal interests and motivations. For many people, their career becomes an obsession; they work to the point of exhaustion and cannot get their minds off of their work. For other people difficult personal relationships become the dominant issue. At this time you may finally decide to make a drastic improvement in a relationship or end the relationship if improvement proves to be impossible. This is a time in your life when you are unwilling to continue with major compromises any longer, and you will pursue the changes required with almost fanatical zeal.

The good side of this astrological influence is that you can make fundamental changes in your life style that are virtually impossible to make at other times. The negative side is a one-sided emphasis on personal power and personal goals to the exclusion of everything else. Consequently, you can neglect your responsibilities to others and you can be insensitive to the needs of others. Power conflicts with others and differences of opinion are very likely now. These problems arise for many reasons: you are unwilling to tolerate the compromises that you have tolerated in the past, you want to make fundamental changes in your life and you do not want others to treat you according to your past tendencies, you are more self-absorbed than usual and tend to neglect your responsibilities to others, you are self-assertive and inclined to be insensitive to the needs of others, and you are focused on particular personal interests and unwilling to listen to interests of others that do not relate to your personal concerns.

You also tend to have a lot of regrets about the past now, and this is definitely the time when you can break free from the limitations of your current life style that are a direct result of decisions that you made earlier in life.

Your concentration, dedication, and resolute determination to achieve your personal goals is never stronger than now. This is a time when you make major changes in yourself and your position in the world. Your overall attitude towards life may also undergo major changes, and others are likely to remark that you seem different or look different by the time this astrological influence is over.

You are quick to see the compromises and mediocre levels of satisfaction and gratification that you have accepted in your life. Now you feel more alive, more determined, and more motivated to make real progress in your life. In particular, you do not overlook issues that you are willing to overlook at other times. If you have any deeply ingrained bad habits or situations that you have become inured to, you will now extricate these “weeds” from your life. Any condition is a potential target for your uncompromising will power now. For example, the following conditions are not tolerated now: being overweight, lacking confidence or assertiveness, smoking or drinking too much, being too self-absorbed and egotistical.

Fortunately, you are able to make the desired changes much easier now than you usually can. Therefore, you should pour your heart into your efforts. You can make tremendous strides now in getting your life on the track you want it to be on. Also, because you are driven more by instinct than reason now, you may not be able to understand WHY you feel so strong about pursuing your interests. Follow your instincts because they draw upon very deep, inner sensitivities and awareness that often is not conscious.

You have a great deal of conviction and sense of purpose now, and you may find yourself assuming a leadership role or receiving promotions or formal recognition for your achievements and contributions. This is a good time for any activity that requires leadership or courage.

During this time period you change many personal habits. Your will power and determination are strong, and you have the courage to go to the root of any problem. Not satisfied with the “quick fix”, you want to pull the weeds out by the roots. For example, people with weight problems or health problems may begin a regimen of exercise, changes in diet, stopping smoking, etc. You may also finally overcome persistent problems such as lack of confidence or other personal problems. Of course, major changes of this nature are not easily achieved, and this astrological influence will not bring about miracles. It does, however, give increased determination to root out the cause of problems or difficulties. This is a time when you can shed an old skin and gain a fresh outlook on life.

A profound change which amounts to a death of some sort rocks your world now. Your relationship with a significant male will be the source of much grief and will either end or alter radically.

Serious health challenges could arise, particularly if you are far from your true purpose, unhappy with your life, or have been out of balance for a length of time. Try to keep stresses from getting out of control.

Things that have been buried, hidden, lost or forgotten are exposed now, from psychological issues to actual material objects. You may need help retrieving these things, for you feel quite lost, overwhelmed, or simply in the dark.

Power is an issue in your life also. Ways you have used, abused, rejected, or disowned your own power will confront you, possibly in a most disagreeable manner. Personal integrity and support from a higher power are your only recourse at present.

Emotional upheaval and irrational, compulsive feelings are key issues during this time period. Feelings that have remained hidden or forgotten since childhood arise now. You also sometimes feel gripped by feelings and emotions that you never thought you were capable of having! The emotions vary but most people will experience jealousy, emotional insecurity, feelings of inadequacy or anger, feelings of deep attachment or dependency on another person, and strong maternal or paternal feelings.

Upon experiencing the first wave of these feelings, you are likely to try to ignore the feelings. Then you will find that the feelings are too strong to ignore, but you may still try to hide them from others. Eventually, you will discover that you are gripped with feelings that will not go away and cannot be hidden. You will have to deal with these feelings in one way or another. Avoid the temptation to keep trying to hide your feelings; they will only become more intense and be even more disruptive when you finally deal with them. You certainly do not need to make a public display of your emotions and it is perfectly reasonable to hide feelings from others in a public situation, but you must find time by yourself or with close ones to recognize and express these feelings.

Handling these feelings in the best way is an art that requires delicate sensitivity. It is good to release the feelings, but not wallow in them. For example, you might feel like crying, or you might feel very jealous or angry at someone, for no apparent reason. If the feeling becomes very strong, then it is best to express the energy in some form, whether it be allowing yourself to cry, letting the other person know that you are feeling jealous, or playing a dynamic sport to release pent up frustrations. After the energy release, try to analyze the situation and discover the source of the problem. Talking to someone else may help your analysis. Some form of therapy can be very helpful at this time. Very often the current problems are directly caused by deeply ingrained feelings that started in early life, often in relationships to parents, brothers, or sisters. If handled successfully, you can release emotional blockages that you have been carrying around your whole life, and consequently your overall disposition, mood, and attitude towards life is greatly enhanced.

Take note of any situation where your response to something is out of proportion. You may become very irritated at someone over a relatively minor issue, or you may become zealously impassioned about some issue or idea that is actually relatively minor. These exaggerated emotional responses are caused by your own personal emotional experiences and confusions which you are not willing to directly confront, so you project them on other people or events. Also, various biases and prejudices surface now. Even if you consider yourself to be very liberal and unbiased, you may find yourself making negative, critical remarks about certain organizations, religions, professions, groups, or personality types. Again, these prejudices arise from deeply ingrained emotional blockages in yourself. This is the time to confront these problems, and extricate these “weeds” from your emotional nature.

Emotional upheaval, turmoil, and change in personal relationships and irrational, compulsive feelings are key issues during this time period. Feelings that have remained hidden or forgotten since childhood arise now. You also sometimes feel gripped by feelings and emotions that you never thought you were capable of having!

Then you will find that the feelings are too strong to ignore, but you may still try to hide them from others. Eventually, you will discover that you are gripped with feelings that will not go away and cannot be hidden. Your personal relationships are deeply affected by these feelings. There is a strong temptation to manipulate others or become involved in complex power struggles with others. For example, you may feel jealous or angry with your spouse or lover. Rather than openly admit the jealousy or anger, you may do something that irritates the other person or makes them feel jealous or angry also. You are capable of being very vengeful and spiteful now. Avoid this temptation! It leads to very complex and difficult emotional turmoil in the relationship that can ruin the beautiful feelings and bonds that you otherwise share. If you notice yourself, or the other person, beginning to play games, you must try to stop the game playing and clear away the emotions and personal issues that are being masked by the games. During this time period, your close relationships will either be rejuvenated and cleared of a lot of old misunderstandings and confusions, or else they will become poisoned with bad feelings and complex emotional turmoil. The only guarantee is that they will be changed, and it is up to you to make the changes as constructive as possible, which will not be easy.

Delicate sensitivity is required to handle the situations and feelings that arise now. It is good to release feelings that surface, but not wallow in them. For example, you might feel like crying, or you might feel very jealous or angry at someone, for no apparent reason.

Emotional upheaval and irrational, compulsive feelings are key issues during this time period. Obsessive and compulsive behavior can arise now. For example, some people will go on an eating binge and put on a lot of weight and others will become loud, boisterous, and belligerent about their political or religious views. You may suddenly feel jealous of someone close to you, or you may feel guilty about decisions and actions that occurred long ago. The feelings that arise depend on your own experiences and interests because they are triggered by events and interests of a very personal nature, perhaps that go back to your early childhood. You also sometimes feel gripped by feelings and emotions that you never thought you were capable of having! The emotions vary but most people will experience jealousy, emotional insecurity, and feelings of inadequacy or anger, feelings of deep attachment or dependency on another person, and strong maternal or paternal feelings.

Emotional intensity appeals to you now. Relationships deepen and grow and penetrate to a very personal level. This process is sometimes initiated by you and sometimes initiated by the other person, but in either case it leads to a much deeper understanding and bond between you. You reveal hidden parts of yourself now. Matters of deep interest and concern to you, events and experiences in your early life that you very rarely mention or feelings that you normally keep hidden are brought out in the open. Any feeling, whether it be love, hate, appreciation, jealousy, or any other feeling is brought into the open, causing your relationships to become deeper, more meaningful, and less superficial.

This is an excellent time to discuss issues with parents, children, brothers, sisters, and close friends that you normally find very difficult to bring up. Confronting others with these difficult or hidden issues is likely to be intense and sometimes unpleasant but the overall result is extremely beneficial. The healing of hurt feelings and the willingness to address matters that are usually kept hidden is never more easily achieved than at this time.

This time period is one when emotional and physical blocks can be loosened up. Massage and other body work techniques are very beneficial and there is a strong possibility that you will receive some form of body work or physical therapy that is very beneficial.

You may also feel the urge to engage in activities that are emotionally intense and absorbing. Vicarious activities do not appeal to you now. This is a time when creative work with your hands is very satisfying, for example. Deep-sea diving, white water rafting, or other emotionally intense activities also appeal to you now.

Feelings and emotional issues which you never realized you harbored are apt to be triggered, especially in your female relationships. Acknowledge whatever feelings or sensations well up, no matter how seemingly irrational or inappropriate. While you need not act on them, you need to feel them. This is a healing process if you don’t resist or force them down.

Serious health challenges could arise, particularly if your past griefs and wounds have not been properly attended to. A need for nurturing, care, support, and tenderness which has been ignored can manifest as an illness.

Family relationships or conditions in your home require major work, revisions, or repair. There may be some unsalvageable relationship or situation which will simply need to be relinquished. Damage to or destruction of your home is a possibility, especially if neglect has occurred. Do what you can to rebuild or revitalize your living space.

Research and penetrating study are highlighted now. You become involved in studies that probe to a deep, hidden level that you previously have not been aware of. The nature of the studies varies according to your personal interests, but whatever area you become involved in, you pursue with intensity and a great desire to uncover the underlying motivations and causes behind the appearances. You want to know what really “makes it tick”. This is an excellent time for any kind of research or in-depth studies.

You can become so engrossed in your “detective work” that you find it difficult to stop your research until you have found the answer that you are seeking. You have a one-track mind now and tend to talk to others about your interests whether they are interested or not! A negative tendency that you should try to curb is trying to talk others into your point of view. You become so engrossed in your ideas that you feel you must get others to see your point of view. However, you tend to be obsessed about a specific idea, fail to see some of the broader issues and the overall context of an issue, and try to persuade others to come around to your point of view. You can be persuasive now, but don’t try to influence others who are not interested in what you have to say, and try to refrain from being dogmatic and inflexible in your thinking.

You pursue ideas with intensity now. You have a questioning, almost cynical attitude now that probes beneath the surface of any issue. This is an excellent time for any kind of research or in-depth study. You tend to become obsessed with an idea and pursue it to its logical conclusion. You are fascinated with discovering the real motivations and underlying causes behind the external events. You uncover many secrets. The nature of your studies depends on your personal interests and may be in any area ranging from politics, sociology, psychology, and history to any of the hard sciences. Whatever area you focus on, you pursue avidly and almost obsessively.

This time period is excellent for any kind of research or in-depth study. You are motivated and interested in probing beneath the surface and learning the underlying causes behind any event or behavior. The nature of your studies depends on your personal interests, but whatever area you pursue, you pursue with intensity. You become fully engrossed in your mental pursuits now. Your concentration is strong and you can become so engrossed in your “detective work” that you cannot stop until you have found the information or answer that you seek. This astrological influence is especially good for specialized work; you deepen your understanding in a specific area that you already have some experience in rather than broaden out into new areas.

Regardless of the kind of work you do, you will gain a deeper understanding at this time that will assist you in better handling the situations that you encounter in your work. If your work involves research and experimentation, you will make some big strides and perhaps important discoveries, now.

You are also able to speak with conviction and persuasiveness now, and you may find yourself in the position of rallying others to a given point of view or realization. You are able to do this very effectively now.

Your communications with others take on a new level of depth and intensity at this time. Secrets come out into the open and conversations have a greater sincerity and depth than usual. If there is someone with whom you feel that communication has been too superficial, this is the time to dig further beneath the surface.

You are also able to speak with conviction and persuasiveness now. You are able to rally others around an idea that you feel strongly about, and you may find yourself in a position of spokesperson for a political, social, or religious ideal. Fortunately, you are very effective in this role and a very convincing speaker, but also not inclined to let your impassioned ideas cause you to become dogmatic or too narrow-minded.

Many of your mental habits and attitudes, concepts, intellectual beliefs, and thinking patterns are severely tested and could shatter under the impact of new understanding or information. You may be forced to see and acknowledge something that is highly disagreeable, threatening, or unbelievable to you. Try to avoid extremist positions, dogmatic thinking, or fanatical propaganda. You may run into some extremely opinionated and/or charismatic “teachers” who seek to influence you unduly. Tricks played on your mind or brainwashing in any form should be strictly avoided.

Do whatever you can to alleviate stress in your environment and nervous system. You may require a bit more solitude than usual to keep yourself in balance.

Romance and sexuality are the key issues now. Your sexual drive is particularly strong now, and you are driven by a strong need to achieve a deeper level of fulfillment in your love relationships. At times during this time period you are not able to constrain your compulsive feelings, and you are prone to dispense with reason, logic, rational judgment, ethics, and taboos.

If you are not married or deeply involved with someone, it is likely that a love relationship will begin now. However, because your romantic and sexual drives are so strong, you may allow yourself to become involved with someone that you find attractive but are not compatible with on an intellectual level and with whom you share few interests and tastes. Try not to settle for this kind of compromise in your love relationships because you will later be faced with the predicament of unraveling the bonds you have formed, which is likely to be more difficult than you would imagine now.

If you are married or deeply involved with someone, then your relationship will undergo some changes now. There may be many changes, but typically, one of the following changes occurs in either or both of you: more demanding and less easily satisfied with the other person, more romantic, more flirtatious, less conventional, and more possessive. Issues of jealousy and possessiveness are likely to arise. The nature of the issues and changes that arise now depends on the changes needed in the relationship. Underlying all of these changes is the need for greater closeness and greater romantic and sexual fulfillment. The emotions and drives that arise now usually arise without any apparent reason. This is a time of compulsive and irrational emotional drives! Avoid the tendency to be secretive. You may try to hide your feelings, repress your feelings, or develop extramarital affairs without your spouse’s knowledge. Lying and hiding things from others only builds another layer of complexity onto the complex feelings that you are dealing with, and you will eventually regret your lack of honesty and openness.

Issues of jealousy and possessiveness are likely to arise. The nature of the issues and changes that arise now depends on the changes needed in the relationship. Underlying all of these changes is the need for greater closeness and greater romantic and sexual fulfillment. The emotions and drives that arise now usually arise without any apparent reason. This is a time of compulsive and irrational emotional drives! Avoid the tendency to be secretive. You may try to hide your feelings, repress your feelings, or develop extramarital affairs without your spouse’s knowledge. Lying and hiding things from others only builds another layer of complexity onto the complex feelings that you are dealing with, and you will eventually regret your lack of honesty and openness.

If you are not married or deeply involved with someone, it is likely that a love relationship will begin now. However, because your romantic and sexual drives are so strong, you may allow yourself to become involved with someone that you find attractive but are not compatible with on an intellectual level and with whom you share few interests and tastes. Try not to settle for this kind of compromise in your love relationships because you will later be faced with the predicament of unraveling the bonds you have formed, which is likely to be more difficult than you would imagine now.

Your romantic and sexual feelings are very strong now. If you are married or involved in a love relationship, then this relationship will deepen now. You feel really in tune with your partner and the bonds of love between you become stronger. You are able to share your deepest feelings, desires, fears, and needs more easily than usual now, and a healing of any past hurts and emotional scars takes place. During this time period you will find that you are better able to bring up your deepest feelings, let go of the negative feelings, and embrace the good ones. This process makes your love relationship stronger and closer. If you have any anxieties, fears, or phobias, especially if they are related to sexuality, then these emotional problems can be healed now. In any event, this is a time of increased emotional intensity and bonding.

If you are not involved in a love relationship but would like to be, you are very likely to form a deep love relationship now. The relationship may not necessarily lead to marriage, but it will be a deep, strong one. The best way to attract a relationship is simply to be yourself and don’t be afraid to express your feelings to others. If you seek a relationship but are unable to start one during this time period, then there is some psychological block that must now be recognized and healed.

A weighty and seemingly unavoidable situation in your love life triggers deep emotions. You may have to end a toxic relationship or face the “death” of someone or something you have cherished. (Death is used here to mean either radical revision, complete resolution and finality, or in rare cases, actual physical death.)

If you begin a significant relationship now, know that it will be a powerful and transformative one. Issues that may arise now are those of control, possessiveness, or jealousy. You may also experience subtle blackmail, ultimatums, fears of abandonment or betrayal, or violation of taboos of an emotional or sexual nature. Secret or illicit relationships could complicate your life or you could face results of your past behavior in intimate relationships. This is pay back time regarding all the ways you have expressed your affectionate, romantic, sexual energies.

A health crisis due to hormonal or glandular imbalances could arise. This is a time to learn all of the ways you can balance and create harmony in your life through life style, diet, emotional forgiveness, and rectification of your past.

Your ambition and drive to succeed are incredibly strong now. You will go to any lengths to achieve your goals, and you have the energy to do it. You are driven by a compulsive need to achieve, and you often find it difficult to stop. Even if you are normally rather lethargic, you will be a workaholic during this time period. If you normally are a workaholic, you may work to the point of exhaustion now, in which case you should exhibit some restraint or you will make yourself sick from overexertion.

Hard work is very satisfying for you at this time. There are situations in your life that you now want to change completely and you see the hope of working your way out of the limitations of your current life. Go for it! The only caveats are to refrain from working to a point of exhaustion and to be wary of inciting arguments and fights with others. Your aggressive, determined pursuit of goals can cause you to be pushy, belligerent, impatient, overly competitive, uncooperative, or domineering.

This is a period in your life when hard work can enable you to overcome tremendous obstacles. However, be careful to make intelligent and wise decisions about what to invest your energy in. This astrological influence gives you the motivation and energy to work hard, but neither helps nor hinders your ability to choose the best area to invest your energies. Hard work does not guarantee success; you must also choose an area that will be fruitful.

Lots of physical activity is a must now. If the focus of your work is not very physical, then you should take time for regular physical exercise and outdoor activity. Competitive sports are a good outlet.

Power struggles with others are almost inevitable now. Others may notice your assertive demeanor and try to squelch you because they view your ambitions as competition for them. You also tend to be competitive and sometimes ruthless in your pursuit of your goals. Even if you consider yourself to be a kind and considerate person, you are likely to step on toes now and aggressively push your way to your goals now. You will rise up and assert yourself against anyone that has dominated, restricted, or manipulated you in the past. Difficult confrontations are likely. If you try to hold back your feelings, anger will mount and you become very hotheaded. This is a time in your life when you must assert your will; try to be honest and direct but also be tactful and approach others with good will rather than malicious intent!

You can easily become very stressed now. You work long hours, feel an urgent need to make dramatic changes in your life even if there are no external pressures, and you are often impatient and pushy, which makes others feel uncomfortable around you. Try not to become so obsessed with your work that you end up making your life miserable! This is certainly the time in your life to make important changes and buckle down to the tasks at hand, but try to keep a sense of proportion and balance in your life also.

At times during this period you are exceedingly impatient, obstinate, and inclined to be pushy or domineering. Your aggressive, impatient, obstinate attitudes can incite arguments and bad feelings with others. Try to be more considerate and patient.

Your vitality and energy level are at a high point. You are in an ambitious and dynamic phase of your life. Your recuperative powers are excellent and your health is robust. Many people are inspired to build up their physical strength during this astrological influence, and this is a good idea. You can develop greater endurance and vitality now which will rejuvenate your body. You can create new health habits that can extend beyond the time period of this astrological influence.

Progress in your work and career should be very solid now. The increased energy and ambitiousness helps you to tackle tasks with enthusiasm. This is a good time to focus on nitty-gritty work. You are willing to undergo training or make laborious efforts with relatively little trouble, and you find demanding work more enjoyable than usual. This is a good time to remove limitations, restrictions, and barriers in your work. You can reform or reorganize your work situation so that you can accomplish more and focus on the things that you really want to do. Minor chores and problems do not bother you now; for example, rather than grumbling about needing to mow the lawn, you enjoy the work.

At this time you also have definite instinctive feelings about what you want to accomplish. You are driven by deep inner sensitivities more than by logic and reason. You may, for example, just “feel” like you would like to build an extension on your home, grow a garden, apply yourself to some aspect of your profession, etc., without logically being able to explain why you feel so strongly about this now. Follow your instincts because they are usually right.

This is an especially good time for physical work, outdoor activities, and competitive sports. The more primitive “animal” side of you needs expression; camping or intensive experiences like deep-sea diving are very rewarding and enjoyable now.

Your vitality and energy level are at a high point. You are in an ambitious and dynamic phase of your life. You have an especially good ability to motivate others. You have little patience with bureaucratic obstacles, inefficiency and evasiveness, and you boldly challenge these inadequacies. Fortunately, you also have sufficient tact and diplomacy to successfully implement your reforms. You are in a reorganizing and reforming spirit, and you are likely to make many minor changes to your life so that you are less distracted and better able to do the things you want to do. This is an especially good time for creative work, and you are likely to make or build something in a craft area that you enjoy. Your instinctive inclinations should be followed now; you are likely to feel strongly that you want to pursue some creative line of work but you may doubt whether the endeavor is worthwhile. Follow your instincts now because they draw upon deep, subconscious sensitivities and are usually accurate.

Fierce struggles over power, assertiveness, and will are indicated at this time. Dealing with male sexuality and aggression in yourself or through another is an issue, one that may take you unaware. This is also a time when you must come to grips with all the ways you use, abuse, reject, disown, or overuse power, competition, and force in your life. Do you have not only strong will, but good will? Do you override or try to beat everyone? Are you afraid of your own or others’ anger? Do you creatively act to bring about what you need and desire, or let whatever happens occur? Toxic relationships to power and/or to men should be ended or totally revised.

An accident, trauma, or health crisis involving inflammation, over or under activity of the immune system, or sexual imbalances and problems could arise if you are extremely out of balance with these energies. If not, simply beware of the dark side of yourself and others regarding will, winning at the expense of others, and self-assertion.

The need to expand your horizons and break free from the limitations of your present life style is the major theme during this time period. At this point in your life your current situation seems too restrictive and confining. You feel hemmed in by surroundings and people that are too simplistic, narrowly focused, and petty.

You are also less cautious, more adventurous, confident, and willing to spread your wings to explore new possibilities. This shift in attitude is also accompanied by adopting a much more liberal, perhaps extravagant and less ethical, approach to life. You are more willing to borrow money and spend savings in order to have the things you feel are necessary to enjoy a life of greater prosperity and freedom. You also travel a lot now and mix more easily with people of different social, religious, and ethnic backgrounds. You are much less provincial in your approach to life. You are also likely to attend parties and other social gatherings where you mix with people of a higher economic strata or higher educational level than your usual circle of friends.

Your view of life is expanded and your image of yourself is broadened. You now see yourself becoming a part of a much larger sphere of activity, and becoming integrated into a more prosperous, liberal, expansive circle of people.

Overall this is a very positive time period. The changes in your attitude are just as important as the external changes. You drop many of the “I can’t” attitudes that have previously limited your potential for growth. The only negative tendencies to be wary of are the tendencies to be a bit pompous, haughty, and arrogant towards people whose lives are simpler and whose goals are less grand or less glamorous than yours.

At this point in your life your current situation seems too restrictive and confining. You feel hemmed in by surroundings and people that are too simplistic, narrowly focused, and petty. You feel like a big fish in small pond. Your job, circle of friends, neighborhood, almost every aspect of your life seems confining and limiting. Your obligations, debts, and responsibilities prey upon you, and you desperately want greater freedom.

You feel claustrophobic now. Your situation seems too limiting and confining and you want to break free from the obstacles and responsibilities that keep you tied to your current life style. You certainly need to spread your wings now, but be wary of taking major risks and gambling on a venture that promises you prosperity, freedom, and adventure. Because you want more freedom so much, you are willing to believe in a get-rich-quick scheme and take big risks. Don’t be foolish! This is a time when you can foolishly squander your resources and give up on things that you later wish you could have back again. On the other hand, you must also find ways to expand your horizons and grow into a larger sphere of activity and friends than you currently are involved in. If you fail to find some new doors to open now, you will become extremely restless and discontented.

This is an excellent time to travel and meet new people, explore alternative cultures and life styles, pursue experiences that broaden your perception and view of life. Most importantly, this is a time when your attitude towards yourself changes. Rather than limiting yourself by saying “I can’t dance very well”, or “I am not good with numbers” or “I can’t afford what I want”, you are able to change your “I can’t” attitude to an “I can” attitude. You now can clearly see ways in which you limit your opportunities and growth by focusing on narrow, limited approaches. You may discover that you have been taking the long route to your career goals and there are much shorter routes. For example, you may decide to increase your education rather than struggle along with your current qualifications, or you may realize that opportunities are much better in another part of the country or even in a foreign country and you need not struggle in your present situation. In various ways you are opened up to a larger view of your life and the opportunities that are available to you. Be careful about making firm decisions now, however, because you tend to be overly optimistic, overlook details, and take risks that are not warranted. This is an excellent time to explore alternatives, but only act on your new ideas and discoveries after investigating them thoroughly.

This time period is a positive one of broadening horizons and expansion. This expansion can take many forms. You are likely to travel more now, and have more exposure to other cultures, life styles, and ethnic groups than usual. You also are more adventurous, more restless and less security-minded. You are much less cautious and self-controlled than usual, and are not able to resist indulging in the things you want, even if you really can’t afford them. You spend money freely, visit places you have never been to before, and become exposed to lots of new ideas. This time period is, in general, a very positive one for it widens your horizons and puts you in touch with more opportunities and choices. You are much less confined and restricted, and you feel optimistic and positive in outlook. In business dealings, this is a time of expansion and growth. The only negative possibility is growth which is too fast or uncontrolled, leading to a lot of waste and inefficiency. You are also more conscious of social and political issues now. You can better see how your life fits into the overall social order, and this enables you to approach your affairs with a broader, more comprehensive outlook. You may also become involved in trying to improve and reorganize social or political activities.

A crisis involving your faith, ultimate beliefs, higher aspirations, or integrity is indicated at this time. You may be shattered to discover the authorities, guides, teachers, mentors, gurus, or institutions you believed in are not the whole answer. Or you may recognize your essential cynicism and godlessness which leaves a gaping hole, an emptiness and meaninglessness in your life. Ways in which you have consumed too much, or been excessive, overly inflated, wasteful, negligent, inattentive to details, immoral, or out of bounds in any area of your life must be dealt with now. Overconfidence or overweening pride and ambition will take a fall.

Physically you could have difficulties with liver, gallbladder, or vision. See a health professional if you get vague symptoms; build your health up at this time and remedy mild imbalances before they manifest more acutely.

This is a difficult time period when unexpected demands and responsibilities arise. It seems as if every weak link in your life decides to break now! New obligations are likely to arise both in your personal life and your work. You may find that a family member develops a physical or psychological problem, and you are the best person to assist. Problems with your car and other mechanical devices may also arise. Even if no new problems and responsibilities arise, you will find that you cannot open new doors now. If you have been hoping for a promotion, salary increase, better employment, a new home, a long vacation, or other release from the daily chores and limitations of your current life, you are likely to be disappointed. Expansion is very difficult at this time. This is the time to focus on basics; you must take care of the things in your immediate environment that now need attention.

Unfortunately, the outer problems that you face are not likely to be easier than the inner turmoil and confusion that arises! Deeply rooted anxieties and fears surface now. Feelings of inadequacy, guilt, and regret are very likely. Your faith in yourself is tested. If you feel that you have been insincere or vain about something, or that you have made poor decisions, then you must have the inner strength to recognize these problems and start fresh. Avoid the tendency to wallow in feelings of despair and hopelessness.

A good way to prepare for this time period is to make your life as stable and secure as possible. For example, by having all debts and loans paid off, you are less vulnerable if your income decreases. If you are employed in a position that provides a high level of job security (for example, many government jobs are very stable and secure), then it is probably best to stay in this position rather than switch to employment that involves great risk.

Although this time period is difficult and challenging, it does point out to you what things are really important to you. For example, many people discover that they have placed too much importance on material possessions or their personal ambitions, and realize that their personal relationships, family, and health are far more important. Superficialities and distractions are cut out of your life, and you are faced with dealing with the basics. You can now build your life on a stronger, more sincere, more mature foundation. If something dear to you is threatened (your health, a personal relationship, etc.), then you can now focus attention on this neglected part of your life. Note also that failings and problems may arise in areas that you have not obviously been neglecting, due to the deep karmic energies that are at work now; you may even find yourself saying that “it isn’t fair” that you face certain problems now. Whether it is fair or not, you must do your best to improve them!@

Avoid the tendency to wallow in feelings of despair and hopelessness.

The difficulties you face now are likely to make you question the entire direction of your life. You will wonder whether the time and effort that you put into your interests is really worth it. You may also feel that your personal responsibilities are making it impossible for you to pursue your career goals, and you may wonder whether to give up your goals. Do not run away from your responsibilities. On the other hand, do not become so disappointed that you give up on your ambitions; you simply must meet these obligations, and at a later time you will be able to pursue your goals with greater freedom.

Discipline, concentration, and determination are the key issues now. You are likely to adopt a rather austere and intense routine during this time period. You stubbornly pursue your interests, and you are willing to work long hours without complaint. This is an excellent time for any form of training or laborious and painstaking work. If you are normally rather lax or scattered in your approach to life, this is a time when you can get your life into better focus and work with much better concentration and discipline. If you are normally disciplined and focused in your work, you are likely to work with extreme dedication and almost compulsive tenacity.

Because your concentration is so good, you enjoy working in solitude now. You enjoy undistracted activities. Solitude and quiet are very enjoyable now, even when you are not feeling very ambitious and just want to relax. This is an excellent time for taking walks or relaxing in solitude. At an unconscious level you are putting your life in perspective and sorting out your situation, and consequently you may instinctively feel like being alone, without consciously knowing why you have this desire. This is also an excellent time for study and research.

Your relationships are imbued with a deep sense of trust and respect now. Someone may ask you to do a favor or help in some important matter. You may also be given additional responsibilities at work. Matters of a serious nature are shared with others. This is a time of maturing and deepening of your personality and relationships with others. You are able to communicate with others with greater sincerity and depth than usual. This is an excellent time for a heart-to-heart conversation with anyone, where you share deeper feelings and ideas that you normally keep hidden.

Those areas in your life that have become too rigid, secure, limiting, or restrictive radically alter during this period. This is a different time of loss, or of eliminating, cutting down, or shattering old paradigms. Naturally the less resistant you are to this process, the less painful it will be for you, but in this case what is shifting is your sense of security, reality, safety and structure, in short, those places in which you are most resistant and fearful in the first place!

Difficulties with parental figures, authorities, societal norms and expectations, as well as feelings and attitudes about death, grief, and mourning will all be activated.

Beware of excessive self isolation. Reach out to others, admit your struggles, try to gain perspective and get help if you begin to feel a bit disoriented due to the profound root level shift that is occurring.

Rebelliousness and independence are the key issues for this time period. You are impatient and rather reckless at times, and you make abrupt changes in your life. You feel as if you have been following the crowd too long, and you now seek a more spontaneous, responsive, and creative life style. You are also likely to become involved in some form of social activism. You are particularly rebellious against any form of social repression or abusive authority.

This is a period in your life when you should be breaking free from old habits, and becoming much more spontaneous and lively. You can discover new creative abilities and learn to improvise more. This is an excellent time to explore new creative outlets, particularly ones that require greater spontaneity or improvisation. A youthful spirit of freedom and spontaneity is trying to come forth now. However, be wary of a tendency to pursue some area just to be different. Like a youngster who tries smoking cigarettes just to be different and to rebel against his/her parents, you may pursue alternatives simply because they are expressions of being different and rebellious rather than because of their intrinsic worth.

Some people experience major unexpected, sudden changes in their lives during this astrological influence, even if they did not plan the changes or consciously initiate them. Be prepared for sudden shifts in your life (moves, job changes, etc.); they will not necessarily occur now, but the probability is higher than usual.

Rebelliousness and independence are the key issues for this time period. You are impatient and rather reckless at times, and you make abrupt changes in your life. You feel as if you have been following the crowd too long, and you now seek a more spontaneous, responsive, and creative life style. You are also likely to become involved in some form of social activism. You are particularly rebellious against any form of social repression or abusive authority.

You are rebellious towards people in your personal life, as well as towards society in general. You are likely to feel that someone else is dominating your or manipulating your life. This is the time to become free from this restriction, so confront this problem now. However, try to be polite, respectful, and to communicate openly as well, as you tend to be explosive and inclined to make a sudden “change in policy” without any explanation. Others may rebel against you also. This is a time when there is an impetus towards greater freedom in relationships, regardless of the source or nature of the restrictions.

This is a period in your life when you should be breaking free from old habits, and becoming much more spontaneous and lively. You can discover new creative abilities and learn to improvise more. This is an excellent time to explore new creative outlets, particularly ones that require greater spontaneity or improvisation.

Unexpected upsets and changes occur now. You may suddenly move, change jobs, or make other major changes. However, be careful about being too impulsive. You may make a change only because you are restless and tired of the same old situation, rather than because you have a better opportunity. The changes that occur now are likely to be partly initiated by yourself, and partly an unexpected surprise. In either case, this is a time of change!

This is an explosive and unstable time period. Be careful while driving your car or during any other activity that requires attentiveness, as your sudden bursts of impatience and impulsiveness make you more accident-prone than usual.

This is also a time for liberating some of your potential creative capabilities that have been lying dormant.

Creative abilities that have been dormant are now awakened. This is a period when you can tap into new creative talents, and become more spontaneous and inventive. The ability to improvise and respond to situations spontaneously, rather than needing a great deal of preparation, is heightened. In short, this is the time to liberate new creative capabilities. Some of this increased creative ability comes naturally, but it is up to you to encourage the process. The areas that you choose for an outlet vary according to your individual nature, but they probably will have a dynamic, spontaneous quality. For example, music, dance, and some sports are areas that provide a good outlet for creative, spontaneous expression. This is a positive period of loosening up, rejuvenation, and creativity. You may discover creative activities that can become a permanent part of your life, even after this time period is over.

A deep discontent stirs within you; how and where to satisfy it is a dilemma. You are apt to go to extremes seeking radical solutions to problems, and possibly do harm by trying to do too much, too soon. If you put the gun to someone’s head it may well backfire!

Ways in which you have been suppressing yourself could have intense, even violent, repercussions now.

Transiting Pluto conjunct Natal Neptune

Your imagination is triggered by some exotic, unusual, fantastic, or idealistic vision that is sweeping through your age group like a wave. The exact nature of this inspiration is difficult to predict and can be anything from a new style of music or a movie that grips your imagination, to a spiritual or religious revival of some sort. What is clear is that this heightened imagination and sensitivity is intense and deep! Your deepest fantasies and ideals are stirred.

There are several negative possibilities. You can mistake fantasy for reality, which is not uncommon in many fanatical religious groups. You may be swept away by the glamour of someone and have a totally unrealistic view of the person, which is not uncommon in a craze for a move star or singer. Also, there is the possibility that your imagination is stimulated in a negative manner, so that you become involved in drugs, violence, or other injurious activities.

Also, you may swing between periods of euphoria and emotional depression. The emotional depression can arise from realizing that many of your cherished ideals or idols were based on illusion and fantasy. During this time period you must be willing to let go of illusions and develop a new vision for yourself.

Your imagination and intuition become much deeper and penetrating during this time period. This is an excellent time period for any form of imaginative work, such as fiction writing or any artistic endeavor. This is also a good time for meditation and other religious or spiritual practices. You can tap a much deeper level of sensitivity and intuition than is normally possible. This increased sensitivity is subtle in your daily life, and is most evident when you do something that draws upon your imagination, such as a creative artistic activity. You may also become very interested in some particular period in history or a particular style of art or music. A particular form of religious symbolism or ritual may grip your imagination now. Your intuition is now able to probe to greater levels of sensitivity, and you can become almost compulsively driven by a particular style of art, music, religion, or culture. Although these interests may seem idiosyncratic and not very important, they are, in fact, very important to your inner development and you should pursue your intuitions with intensity. This astrological influence is a positive one and the biggest problem with it is simply that you may brush off your colorful and powerful intuitions and imaginative inspirations as silly or unimportant.

Peculiar sensations, vague symptoms which come and go, a feeling of internal shifting which is not definable, or strange premonitions arise at this time. Increased sensitivity to psychic phenomena, spiritual openings, and an activation of your intuition and higher senses are also indicated. However, if you have imbalances of a psychic nature or if you tend to be overly sensitive already, this can be aggravated. Any problems with drugs or alcohol dependencies or addictions of any kind must be dealt with, as these too will be exaggerated or brought to light. Addressing these tendencies can be very liberating, and that is the required lesson now.

Transiting Pluto conjunct Natal Pluto

During this time period, deeply rooted and hidden energies are activated and affect you more strongly. You remember incidents and events that you have not recalled in a long time. You are driven instinctively to do certain things, even though you may not consciously understand why you are driven to do them. This astrological influence most commonly occurs during the first few years of life, and is not particularly significant for a newborn.

Transiting Pluto opposite Natal Pluto

During this time period you encounter some people that you instantly feel a rapport with. These people become close friends and have a strong impact on your life. The relationship may turn out to be very good or very bad, but in any case it has a fated quality to it, and it seems as if you cannot get away from the other person. Many events in your life now have this fated quality. You are being drawn to people and situations via your very active subconscious and instinctive energies at this time. By handling these situations well, you understand and come to terms with many of your most deeply rooted traits and tendencies.

Transiting Pluto square Natal Pluto

A great deal of questioning about your role in life, your philosophical assumptions, and your overall purpose in life arise now. You become acutely aware of the way in which your parents have influenced your life, and how your own lack of self-confidence or fears have affected your decisions. You are likely to make some major decisions now that will help you mature as an individual and become more focused on the things that are deeply meaningful to you. Your overall attitude towards life can mature greatly now. This maturing process is a difficult one, for it involves dropping old habits and attachments, but having the courage and honesty to look at your life and make necessary adjustments pays off in a much healthier and sounder approach to life.

Transiting Pluto trine Natal Pluto

This is a time period of gradual maturing of your attitudes and overall approach to life. You become more in tune with your inner needs and tendencies, and you make changes that allow you to spend more time doing the things that you really enjoy and that you instinctively are attracted to, rather than what serves your more worldly ambitions, needs for security, and what appeals to you as the logically correct thing to do. You are willing to sacrifice some benefits in order to live a life that suits your temperament and interests now. This attitude is very wise and you can make great strides in getting your life on track. You are more in tune with your instincts and your life tends to come into alignment with your inner nature. Consequently you feel more contented, more “in your own element”, and more creative.

Areas in which you are compulsive, driven, obsessed, fanatical, addictive, or excessive and extreme will create much difficulty now. Deep, penetrating self-analysis and the willingness to release old forms will be needed. A preoccupation with death and loss arises at this time also. Losses due to power struggles or a need to control outcomes or other people could occur. Subtle insubordination or erosion of power may also occur.

It is a time to fundamentally change your focus and emphasis in life and to let go.

Transiting Pluto conjunct Natal Ascendant

This is a time of great personal change. You become tired of your role in life, and you are very sensitive to habits, customs, and social requirements that hide the “real you”. You feel as though you have been drifting along with the tide and following the crowd for too long, and your inner needs and motivations must assert themselves more strongly. You may change your manner of dress, your hair style, and your mannerisms. Even if you do not consciously change any of these personality traits, they are likely to change now anyway. You drop any superficialities and pretenses and become a more sincere, intense person. This process is a difficult one, and many self-doubts and fears arise now. However, you also have a compulsive need to assert yourself. In fact, you can be ruthless with others at times, and you may stubbornly take actions without regard or concern for others. You can be oblivious to the way you affect others because you are driven by unconscious, instinctive, sometimes compulsive drives rather than by logic and reason. In short, this is a time of deepening self-awareness and growing self-assertion, but be careful not to be so engrossed in yourself that you are oblivious to the effect you have on others.

Very important people come into your life now. You meet someone who becomes a strong influence on you. This other person may be a kind of idol, a teacher, or a friend. In fact, several important relationships are likely to develop now, with a different emphasis in each relationship. These relationships will have a strong influence on you for many years to come, and they will have many good, as well as bad, features. They will be very close relationships, and you will view the other people as very influential friends in the future. These relationships are “karmic” and many astrologers would attribute the sense of fatefulness and closeness of the relationship to past lifetimes shared together.

All of your relationships undergo changes at this time. A greater intensity develops and you want greater depth and intimacy. You become disenchanted with any relationship that remains superficial or casual. You seek closeness in every kind of relationship whether it be a friendship, parent-child relationship, or romantic relationship. If your marriage or friendships seem too superficial, they will be transformed now! A complete change in the quality of the relationship or even a separation can occur now.

Note that the precise timing of this astrological influence is very dependent on the exact birth time, so the dates given are accurate only if your birth time is very accurate.

Transiting Pluto square Natal Ascendant

During this time period you reach a critical point in your life and relationships. You want greater intensity and intimacy in your relationships, and you are also inclined to have power struggles with others. You want closeness but you do not want to be dominated or restricted by the other person. You may even try to manipulate others, and secretly take advantage of their weaknesses. In short, a number of conflicting emotions and attitudes arise: you want closeness and intimacy but you do not want to be obligated and restricted by another person; you want fairness in relationships but you can be very unfair yourself, being manipulative or domineering towards others! Try to be honest with yourself. This is a time when many conflicting emotions arise but you need to gain control of your life, and make a firm decision about how to steer your life. If properly handled, this can be a time when you overcome emotional blocks that stem from your childhood and early life, and gain a new, reformed, positive attitude towards life.

This is a positive time when you express your deepest feelings openly and intensely. You seek intensity in your life and in your relationships, and you become more aware of hidden sides of your personality, untapped talents and interests, and also emotional blocks or confusions. Underlying motives come to the surface and relationships become deeper and more meaningful. Although this process is natural and occurs with no effort on your part, you can do much to enhance this process by courageously taking advantage of opportunities to better understand yourself and others.

Major internal housekeeping and deep, penetrating self-analysis on your part is apt to create upheaval in your relationships. You may finally end a toxic relationship or refuse to participate in an abusive exploitative situation. Profound and fundamental changes in your orientation toward life can occur through a health crisis, or by discovering something which had been hidden until now. You may be obsessively preoccupied with aging, death, or the inevitability of change. A significant death which may happen now or even a tragedy that you hear about could trigger this.

Many things which you have buried surface at this time, both positive, life-giving gifts or talents, and problems or issues you did not want to face.

Note that the precise timing of this astrological influence is very dependent on the exact birth time, so the dates given are accurate only if your birth time is very accurate.

Transiting Pluto conjunct Natal Midheaven

There are major changes and developments in your career now. You are driven by a compulsive need to be successful in the things that you really enjoy and feel drawn to, even if these areas are not in high demand or provide marketable products or services. If you can make a livelihood at what you love, then so much the better, but even if you cannot, you will invest more energy now in your hobby. You feel the need to bring out your highest talents, your genius, or special gifts. This is a time of asserting power and dominion. However, this power is not necessarily power over others or even a power visible to others; it is the power to fully express your potential and successfully express the feelings and drives that you feel. If your job does not suit your personal taste, you may change jobs now.

One danger of this astrological influence is that you may push too hard to obtain the life style that you so intensely desire now. You may be pushy or domineering with others, or you may become so obsessed with your personal sense of mission and purpose that you either scare others away with your intensity or they become bored by your one-track mind. Try to keep your life in perspective now. This is definitely the time to become clearer about your goals and to rearrange your priorities, but do not become so obsessed and compulsive that you lose perspective on what you are trying to achieve.

Note that the precise timing of this astrological influence is very dependent on the exact birth time, so the dates given are accurate only if your birth time is very accurate.

There is an activation of your subconscious energies now that can result in a number of possible consequences. You certainly will encounter many events and situations that bring old, buried memories to the surface. A great deal of nostalgia, love, and perhaps anger or jealousy are activated now. You are sometimes gripped with feelings, without having any logical explanation for where the feelings come from; these feelings are, in fact, surfacing from deeply buried past experiences. This is a good time to clear away old grievances, anger, or hurt feelings from the past.

You may also experience some upsets or major changes in your domestic life. There is the possibility of a seemingly unavoidable event such as damage to property or home, the need to move, death, or other major change. Although such radical changes are not necessarily going to occur, the probability is higher now than usual. Although the events seem to be beyond your control, there are complex emotional energies at work that attract this situation to you.

Your career and overall direction in life reach a critical turning point now. You feel the need to pursue the things that you love and instinctively find appealing rather than do what is practical, marketable, secure, or logically correct. If your job does not express your deeper talents and interests, you may make a job change now, or you may become more intensely involved with a hobby that is more personally rewarding and motivating than your job. This is a time of questioning your basic values and overall orientation to life. This is a critical time when you must make any necessary changes to get your life on track with your inner feelings and instincts, even if some sacrifices must be made. You may, for example, decide to accept a lower salary in order to pursue an area that is more meaningful and exciting to you. However, do not become fanatical and stubbornly follow your inner instincts when common sense tells you that your pursuit is foolhardy and impractical. The important key now is to become aware of your inner purpose and sense of mission. Develop a realistic plan for achieving the things that are really important to you. Also, avoid the tendency to become pushy, domineering, and fanatically one-tracked in pursuit of your personal goals.

Note that the precise timing of this astrological influence is very dependent on the exact birth time, so the dates given are accurate only if your birth time is very accurate.

This is a positive time for your career. There will definitely be changes: you may change jobs, receive additional training or education that will help you reach your goals, or develop a fresh, new approach to your work. You are likely to receive some benefits, raises, promotions, or increased stature and recognition in your work. Perhaps just as important as these external changes is the improvement in your attitude towards your work. You approach your work, and life in general, with a fresh perspective and you are able to break out of any rut that you have been caught in. This is a time when you can tap hidden talents within yourself, and start yourself on a new course. If you are involved in the arts, you will probably develop a very new style at this time. If you are involved in the business world, you may develop a new strategy and outlook on your business.

A profound shift in your career aspirations, long range personal goals, or role in society is indicated for this time period. A significant loss or death of a teacher or parental figure, or the loss of employment or some guiding principle in your life, or of something or someone you looked up to, could occur to precipitate a crisis. Any abuse of power by yourself or someone you are closely aligned with could be exposed.

Positively, many aspects of your life will undergo a rebirth or resurrection after a time of change and instability. Hidden gifts can emerge at this time.

Domestic and love relationships can become a central focus in your life at this time. You are apt to experience profound inner changes through your involvements with a loved one, family member, or child. One of the changes you feel occurring now may be an intense desire to care for others and be deeply nurtured in return. Emotional attachments can either strengthen and grow, or complex issues regarding dependency, power struggles, jealousies and resentments can surface during this period. Your feelings and needs may become so powerful and intense that you might have to curb some rather strong urges to overprotect or control loved ones. Also, family responsibilities may take on greater significance either through a birth, pregnancy, or changes in the manner in which you must raise and nurture children. On the other hand, you might be forced to deal with a loss, grief, longing, or separation now which can bring forth deep and hidden emotions in you. For example, a loved one may move away or go off to school, or you may have less contact and involvement with someone whom you deeply care about. If there is a close relationship in your life which is unhealthy or negative, this may be the time you release this attachment and make way for new beginnings.

Transiting Pluto opposite Natal Ceres

Family and cherished relationships are apt to involve complicated issues at this time. Someone you deeply care about or love may require special attention or your relationship with this person might be undergoing a difficult period of transition and changes. Loved ones, especially children, may need more understanding, support, and emotional nurturing. There can be instability and tension in a love or domestic relationship over sharing power and authority, as well as responsibilities or conflicts over family unity, the raising of children, or matters dealing with pregnancy. Some of the emotional exchanges with others are apt to stir up deep and intense feelings within you, and compulsive/obsessive behavior or manipulation may be ways that you project yourself onto loved ones. Balance and moderation is needed in both family and love affairs. On the other hand, this period may indicate a need to deal with a present or past negative emotional involvement or unhealthy situation in your life which has to be released and mourned over or finally accepted as a loss.

Transiting Pluto square Natal Ceres

Excessive or obsessive attachment to a lover, friend, family member, or child is accented during this period. You may also make great attempts to control all of your emotional relationships at this time. There may be a subconscious urge to assume power over another person, especially in nurturing or emotional experiences and situations. You may come across as overbearing and possessive, or you may reveal other sides of your nature that you would have preferred to keep hidden. Similarly, as you try to change, help, guide, or heal others, you transmit very strong feelings onto loved ones, and they may be left either emotionally drained or resentful of your intensity in their lives. Some of the events or experiences which occur in your private or domestic life can alter the ways in which you view matters of love, caring, and family values. Uncomfortable internal changes are likely as well. Your need for love and nurturing is apt to be so tremendous that loved ones and family members may find it extremely difficult to fulfill all of your needs and longings. Hidden fears of loss or abandonment may take hold and you might feel that others do not need you or that they may desire to end the relationship. It is necessary now to overcome and control strong emotional extremes. You may need to demand less attention from others, as well as allow them the room to breathe and grow in their own right. Try not to obsess over worries and fears about a loved one or relationship. If a relationship is not progressing to your liking or is negative and unhealthy for you, a separation or break-up can very well take place at this time; however, this loss may be necessary for your future personal growth.

Transiting Pluto trine Natal Ceres

An opportunity exists for deep sharing and warm emotional experiences in love or family relationships. The desire to cherish and care for loved ones, children, and family members is strongly accented at this time. The parental, nurturing side of your nature is stirred and you may be encouraged to make improvements and positive changes in your closest involvements and relationships. Great compassion and understanding helps you clear away any emotional complexities or unhealthy patterns which arise in a love or family relationship. Events which occur now may involve a birth or a pregnancy, or taking part in children’s activities, or rediscovering family unity and values.

Transiting Pluto sextile Natal Ceres

Revitalizing or renewing family involvements and close relationships is accented now. You may respond more emotionally than usual to loved ones, children, and friends and experience a very deep need to give and receive love, care, and nurturing. This is a also a good time for making effective changes or bringing a sense of order and control to your domestic and private life. A long-standing problem or unresolved issue between you and a loved one may begin to improve or you can show more compassion or understanding when trying to heal past wounds and differences. Other domestic or personal changes can occur now, such as planning to start a family, a pregnancy, a birth, or assuming some type of caretaking responsibility for a loved one, parent, child, or friend. If anyone in your surroundings is in special need of healing or attention, you will prove your loyalty, strength, and devotion by going to great lengths to help this individual. On the other hand, this period can signify a time when you find it easier to release yourself from negative attachments. Although any loss can be quite painful, your desire is to form more positive and healthy relationships with room for growth rather than to remain in a situation which is unfulfilling or destructive.

Transiting Pluto quincunx Natal Ceres

Emotional confrontations can arise between you and loved ones during this period. Anxiety, worry, and apprehension over dealing with past or present problems in a domestic or love relationship is likely now. Some underlying fears of loss, separation, or abandonment by loved ones can cause you to feel overly possessive of the people you care about. Any friction or unresolved issues between you and someone you love will stir deep emotions within you now. You may want complete control over your relationships and home environment which is likely to cause upsets and frustrating entanglements with a mate, child, or other family member. It is important not to allow destructive emotions to damage your close relationships. Reassessing your emotional needs and your responsibilities to others may be necessary at this time.

Transiting Pluto conjunct Natal Pallas

You may be very persuasive, clever, and imaginative in your dealings and involvements with others now. Some of your alliances may change, or you might make contacts with important people who share your visions and begin a new partnership during this period. The connections you make with others now can increase your power and recognition. You might also consider making changes in your business or career, something which may involve completely changing your area of expertise or work habits and patterns that you have relied on in the past. Joint efforts can involve sharing interests, insights, consultations, and planning out strategies with another individual. You may have a greater sense of confidence in both your mental and creative abilities and can use your talents, foresight, and natural instincts to your advantage. Even if your goals are modest, your deepest feelings are attached to whatever you undertake or attempt to achieve during this time frame.

Hidden worries, fears, and compulsions may interfere with your plans, thoughts, and ideas at this time. Your imaginative and creative abilities may fall short of your goals, or you may have difficulty persuading other people to share your vision and ambitions. You may have less faith and confidence in your talents, purposes, and beliefs and might refrain from putting your ideas or creativity to productive use, completely change your plans, or eliminate outworn notions and attitudes from the past which no longer serve a purpose for you. It is important to confront any fears and insecurities now and allow your inner guidance to assist you in finding a fresh approach or resolution to the problems experienced during this period.

Unconscious, irrational fears and obsessive thinking may characterize this time frame. Compulsive worries can stem from a relationship or a workplace or personal problem which is complex and confusing. You may sense that other people are undermining your confidence, personal ambitions, and abilities, both creative and intellectual, or manipulating and controlling your plans, ideas, and self-expression. The urge to defend yourself against domination by others is very strong at this time. Try not to become embroiled in destructive power struggles or intense emotional confrontations with another individual now. Readjust your thinking or try new methods to get your views and ideas across to people. It would also be helpful to rid yourself of internal blocks that affect your emotions, creativity, and intellect.

You may be considering investing more time and interest in creative, artistic, or intellectual pursuits now. This is a favorable period to bring forth any talent, special ability, or creative longing that may have been kept under wraps. Getting together with people who share your imagination, concepts, and designs can be especially productive and insightful during this time. You might have strong intuitive feelings now and may act on a hunch or impulse which is likely to work out to your benefit. You could also form some deep, meaningful, and intense attachments or renew a past relationship with someone on a new emotional, mental, or spiritual level. Making peace with the past may be one of your desires now. Problems, misgivings, and hurts can be settled, resolved, or looked upon with new clarity and vision.

Excellent foresight and mental sharpness may bring new opportunities for your creative, artistic, or intellectual yearnings. Other people may notice or support your talents, abilities, and personal ambitions. You tend to get along well now with others on cooperative efforts, due to increased emotional sensitivity within, amicable and friendly discussions, and a greater desire to maintain a peaceful, harmonious environment. Past experience and inner wisdom can be a source of guidance and inspiration for you now. Problem-solving and making intelligent decisions are therefore much easier during this period. Your higher purposes are also brought to light and you may seek profound and deep emotional attachments, rather than superficial relations, with others. Involving yourself in activities which enlighten your mind and spirit, such as the healing or creative arts, music, drawing or yoga would be especially rewarding now.

Breaking away from old, ingrained attitudes and patterns is likely at this time. Your creative and mental abilities may need to be revamped and you might have to think up new ways to tackle problems, tasks, and current endeavors. Personal issues can include frustration, manipulation, and power struggles with others. For example, a parental figure or close associate might show disapproval of your ideas and methods and may pressure you into doing something which makes you feel uncomfortable. Or plans that were in the making are subject to change and upheaval now, and you may feel forced to come up with creative solutions, new strategies, and alternatives.

Established romantic or marital relationships can take a new turn or grow in intensity during this period. You and your primary partner can have a transforming effect on one another, positive or negative, depending upon the way emotions, passion, power, inner desires, and urges play out in your relationship. For example, repressed feelings or unconscious motivations could prevent you from moving ahead to greater commitment, loyalty, and sharing. You must work with your mate to overcome destructive attitudes and habits and restructure your relationship in order to develop more trust, security, and an equal distribution of power and control.

If you are presently unattached, at some time during this period you may develop a deeply satisfying and intense emotional attraction or love.

You may have a tough time understanding some of your deepest emotions, particularly when relating to a lover or marriage partner at this time. You might also have to combat a tendency to obsess over relationship problems now. Strong feelings and fears can get in the way of the future growth and security of your partnership, but you feel forced to restructure the relationship or work on resolving issues that have been bothering you. Negative emotions, such as jealousy, resentment, anger and possessiveness can be released in an uncontrollable manner. You and your mate may also struggle to gain control over one another or assume superiority in the relationship. This period can also represent a time when either you or your mate experience difficulties in making a full commitment or one of you demonstrates less emotional attachment in the relationship.

If you are not involved in a romantic liaison, during this time frame you may meet a potential partner who evokes very strong feelings and emotions within you. This person can have a profound effect on your ideals of love and marriage (for good or bad) and will most likely change or transform your love life in some manner.

Some rather difficult marital or romantic relationship issues may emerge during this period. Your deep-seated needs, emotions, and desires are likely to create inner conflicts which need to be released or resolved. Similarly, you may unconsciously project your negative emotions onto a mate or partner and lack consideration for his or her feelings and needs. You may also compete with your loved one about who has more power or control in the relationship. Emotional confrontations and misunderstandings with your mate can be painful, intense, and dramatic and filled with complexities now. A solid, strong love relationship is likely to undergo change and renewal. However, outworn or unhealthy relationships may be destroyed or terminated. Love triangles or secret relationships may be a temptation or you may be fearful and suspicious that your partner may be involved in this type of alliance.

Love and marital relationships can grow in commitment, loyalty, and devotion during this period. This is a good time to turn around negative attitudes and forgive any past grievances you may be harboring toward your mate. Expressing your worries, fears, and emotional concerns to your partner will help you to let go of the past and work on changing future attitudes and behaviors. If you are not involved in a primary love relationship now, you might meet someone during this time who completely restructures your views and feelings regarding love and marriage. Intense love relationships can be formed and ongoing relationships can progress to deeper emotional and spiritual levels. This is an excellent time to reassess your emotional attachments to determine whether your innermost feelings and needs are being met. You may try to either improve the quality of your romantic/marital life or reach some realizations about the kind of emotional connections you need in order to feel fulfilled.

During this period you may have opportunities to seek deeper fulfillment in an ongoing love relationship or marriage. Taking the time to renew or refresh your commitment and devotion to a mate can be especially beneficial and rewarding for you now. You seek an enduring, passionate love which fosters a stronger emotional and intimate bonding. If you are not married, yet involved in a serious relationship, you might feel strong urges to marry or become engaged during this time. New romantic relationships which begin in this time frame may lead to marriage or will in some manner change your innermost emotional attitudes and needs about love and marriage. The personal changes you experience in this period should be positive and meaningful for your future growth. For example, if you harbored previous views and emotional attitudes of love and marriage which were negative, you may now seek to free yourself from any destructive tendencies in order to clear the way for more loving, stable, and balanced relationships to develop.

Underlying tension and fears can surface in a marital or romantic partnership at this time. Similarly, misgivings and past grievances are likely to create conflicts in your love life. Although it may feel uncomfortable to deal with and resolve painful issues, you might be forced to make some compromises and resolutions with your mate. Emotional flare-ups are apt to center around resentments, jealousy, denials, and power struggles in the relationship. For example, you might be feeling frustration over a love union that fails to move forward according to your plans and intentions, or you may be struggling to extricate yourself from an unhealthy, compulsive/obsessive relationship. If you can gain your self-control and work on letting go of negative inner fears and attitudes, you can find insightful and perceptive solutions to some of the problems you may be experiencing.

You are likely to feel both enthusiastic and intense about your work or personal interests at this time. You may have a deep need to actualize your ambitions or make a definite commitment to a goal or undertaking that you find meaningful and rewarding. However, you must guard against becoming overly fanatical and zealous or trying to force your intentions on other people. You could become so fixated on your objectives that you lose sight of the needs, desires, and feelings of the people closest to you. Loved ones may feel alienated or emotionally separated from you now. Your drive and determination can easily lead to exhaustion or “burn-out”, especially if work or job demands have taken up too much of your time and attention. There may be changes in your work-related activities or you may contemplate making a long-term career move at this time. If something is not totally satisfying your deepest urges, such as a job, relationship, or hobby, you might drastically switch gears and determine to abandon it completely or attempt to transform it in a new direction.

You are capable of hard work and may approach matters with intensity, perseverance, and determination at this time. Current priorities are likely to center around work-related activities or your personal commitments and interests. You might be tempted to employ forceful means to achieve your ambitions, so you must make certain that your motivations and objectives are for the benefit of everyone. Otherwise, misunderstandings or emotional confrontations with people in your business or personal life is possible. You might also have an unconscious need for power or harbor fears that your power and control may be stripped from you. For example, certain obligations may require you to provide others with some type of service or selfless action and you might resent what this entails, as it limits the amount of control you have over the situation. You could overwork yourself to the point of exhaustion or obsess over problems in your work or personal life.

Your reactions, feelings, and drive may be powerful and extreme. Your deepest urges can become obsessions now and you cling to a hope, idea, person, job or whatever fascinates and stimulates you during this period. There is a strong sense of purpose and determination behind everything you do, as well as a feeling of inner turmoil if something absorbs you so intensely. Your zealous attitude can either anger the people around you or make them feel alienated and resentful. If you are putting your enthusiasm and passion into work-related activities, your intimate and emotional attachments will suffer from lack of nurturing. Or you may take up a cause for a group in your community which engulfs your time and energy, leaving personal relationships out in the cold. A desire for power and control in your love life is also likely. You might deliver ultimatums or lay on guilt trips or have manipulating games of this sort directed toward you. If a temporary separation from a loved one occurs, try to see the situation as a healing experience or a chance to learn more about your emotional needs and obligations.

You could feel inspired to make productive changes in your work or personal affairs at this time. Enthusiasm, zeal, and self-gratification motivates you now, and you look for ways to improve your job position, relationships, or private ambitions. This period also allows you to review past misgivings or failures in order to find new hope and strength to forge ahead and take charge of your affairs. You might also take a renewed interest in an old project, hobby, or cause that was once very important to you and may now carry it out to completion. This could also represent a time when you commit and dedicate yourself to a job or career. In your love and work relationships, past or current, you might have more luck when attending to a pressing issue or long-standing problem which needs resolution. Similarly, you need to clear up old projects, renew commitments, and take care of unfinished business, especially in personal and work-related affairs.

Increased zeal, dedication, and enthusiasm for your cherished projects or work-related goals is likely at this time. Involving yourself in activities which benefit your ambitions and which stimulate, inspire, and fascinate you will be especially rewarding now. You could also become so caught up in solitary pursuits and private interests as well that you might neglect some of your close emotional attachments and relationships at this time. While a mate, lover, or family member may be supportive of your utmost desires, they may still need clear explanations of your motivations and inclinations.

Transiting Pluto quincunx Natal Vesta

You may be experiencing frustrations over personal or work objectives at this time. A sense of being controlled by external conditions or by a particular individual can be too much to handle now. You might need to probe into and question your own or someone else’s motivations as jealousy, resentment, and hidden anger might play a greater role in your work or love relationships than you realize at this time. Working for others can make you feel confined and you might prefer a period of solitude to release some of the pressures you encounter. Quiet contemplation and time alone with your private thoughts can be very healing and regenerative now. Although there may be some uncertainty with regard to your innermost goals and ambitions, this period can encourage you to leave a dead-end job or clear away old responsibilities and commitments which have outlived their usefulness.

You may probe into painful memories or emotional baggage from the past rather obsessively during this time period. Any grief, mourning, or wounding experiences which have not thoroughly been let go of and healed could be stirred up without warning. Positively, your healing and survival instincts are also powerful at this time. Therefore, if a personal dilemma or crisis arises, your inner strength will help you gain a greater understanding and perspective on how to go about problem-solving and recovering from a painful experience. Issues about the mysteries of life, loss, death, sexuality, or grief may be investigated and pondered over. Newfound perspectives can be discovered which transform the previous beliefs and opinions you have held onto from the past. This is a time to work on healing your mind, attitudes, and emotional well-being. This period can bring forth more constructive thinking about forgiveness, acceptance, and knowing when to let go of unhealthy situations or relationships in your life.

Complications and upheavals in your personal life may arise throughout this period. You may have perplexing or troublesome emotional encounters with other people now. Extreme emotions which you normally would try to suppress may suddenly grip you, and it would take tremendous internal power to hide feelings of hurt, jealousy, upset, or resentment. During this time you may get involved with an impossible or no-win situation with someone in your life. Long held grievances, power struggles, or an unresolved issue between you and a mate, boss, friend, or family member could create mental and emotional stress during this time. You may feel you have exhausted all avenues toward solving, fixing, or healing a particular predicament or relationship and it may be a difficult and painful process to extricate yourself from this experience. Intense discomfort may lead you to disassociate with people or situations in your life which control, impose upon, or drain you. It would be advisable to thoroughly explore the depths of your feelings, beliefs, and desires when undergoing or contemplating personal changes and transformation in your life at this time.

Transiting Pluto square Natal Chiron

This may be an emotionally intense and trying period in your personal life. A past or recent upsetting experience may get even more complex or take an unusual turn during this period. Externally, you may make attempts to appear to be in control or indifferent or undisturbed by complications or personal dilemmas which arise. However, on the inside, you could feel rather troubled and distressed. You may also feel that someone in your life is constantly trying to control, manipulate, or push you into their way of doing things. This period may unearth your own need for power and control over situations and individuals in your life. Similarly, you may have to refrain from game-playing, defiance, and rebellious behavior in attempts to get your own way at this time. Old, unresolved, or hidden frustration over something or someone in your environment may surface in an unusual or uncomfortable manner. Deep inside you may feel hurt, angry, or wounded, so you may not be consciously aware of how you act or react to the people around you now. During this period your challenge is to find new ways to heal old wounds and to constructively release and eliminate negative attitudes, behaviors, and emotions which prevent you from maintaining healthy relationships, as well as emotional and personal growth.

Self-exploration can help you gain insight into ways to let go of old beliefs and perspectives, past misgivings, and regrets. Any old hurts, grievances, and pain which you have carried from the past can be dealt with and resolved more easily during this period. If there have been past or current issues in dealing with a loss, grief, or internal crises in your life, you may find sources of strength and courage you hadn’t thought existed. Some of the situations and experiences you undergo during this time frame may also provide you with opportunities to feel more emotionally in charge of your life. For example, you may explore ways to recover, grow, and heal by reaching out to help or guide other people in need, or by sorting out old emotional connections in your life which needed to be resolved or released.

You may feel exposed to hurt and disappointment over a dilemma in a personal relationship or experience a troublesome emotional problem during this period. Some of your distress and irritation may be due to unresolved past or present matters which are rather complex or difficult to understand. At this time, you may feel forced or coerced into thinking deeply about emotional issues which you would rather avoid, yet circumstances prevail so you must make a decision or choice in this regard. For example, you may have to allow yourself to come up with a different solution to salvage a relationship or give yourself permission to grieve over a loss or painful situation in your life. The emotional experiences you undergo now may involve getting to the root of your own psychological mysteries, and may afford you a chance to learn a valuable lesson about personal healing, strength, and survival.
