Your Advanced Forecast begins on the next page. If the time period for an interpretation is, for example, given as "July 1, 2004 (June 15, 2004 to July 15, 2004)", then it starts in mid-June, reaches greatest intensity around July 1, and ends in mid-July. The first date listed is the time when the influence has reached maximum strength; we can call this date the "peak date". The influence starts on the beginning date, gradually increases in strength until the peak date is reached, and then it gradually fades out until the ending date is reached. An influence may last for as little as a few days to as long as half a year or so.

 

You may also notice that the same interpretation shows up periodically during the year; this is not unusual. In some cases the beginning and ending dates of the 2 influences are the same; the only difference between the 2 interpretations is the peak date. This means that this particular influence has two peak dates instead of one. It is even possible for there to be three or more peak dates for the same astrological influence. To eliminate redundant interpretations, you may be informed that the astrological influence also occurred earlier and that you should refer back to the previous occurrence of this interpretation.

 

You may be wondering what the abbreviations after the dates are. For example, you may see "Sat Conj Plu", "Ura Trine Nep", etc. These abbreviations are given for the benefit of astrologers and they show the astrological factor that is in effect.

 

We hope you enjoy your Advanced Forecast. For the benefit of astrologers, some technical details are given below.

Sep 12, 2004    (Aug 17, 2004 to Oct 14, 2004)    Ura Trine Moon

 

    You are more spontaneous, free, and uninhibited in your expression of feelings now. Your sense of humor is very good, and you can expect a lot of good times, laughter, and joking throughout this period. This is an excellent time for get-togethers with close friends and family members. Games of all kinds appeal to you now and you may find yourself playing games that you haven't played since you were a youngster, frolicking and laughing like a child too. The child in you is very strong now, and you simply are not in the mood for taking life too seriously. Take full advantage of the opportunities that arise that let you break away from your usual routine and have a good time. There is lots of "play time" so if you are a workaholic, you will just have to tear yourself away from your addiction and allow yourself to have a good time!

 

    This is a time to open the windows and let the fresh air in. Many of your habits and familiar surroundings will be rejuvenated now. You may improve or change your home or landscaping, improve your health habits and rejuvenate your physical body, buy a newer, sportier car, or tear yourself away from humdrum or lukewarm situations that you have become inured to over the years (for example, watching too much television). Now is the time when you experiment and explore more interesting alternatives.

 

    You are also likely to feel the impulse to reawaken old interests that you may not have had the time for in many years -perhaps playing a musical instrument, playing a sport, or engaging in some form of entertainment that you enjoyed as a child. The best advice I can give you is to do all these things fully and do not hold back. Reawaken those old interests and embellish them with a new flourish that appeals to you now. Also follow your instinct to try new things and do things in a different manner than you have ever done before. Even seemingly insignificant things like changes in your home decor or style of dress can have a big effect on your attitude and often are important because they symbolize an important shift in your attitudes.

 

 

Sep 16, 2004    (Aug 21, 2004 to Oct 22, 2004) Ura Oppos Jup/Plu

 

    There is a tendency to be attracted to extreme people and extreme points of view.  You may not be in a compromising mood and can be quite adamant about the correctness of your beliefs.  This intensity can come through in all areas of your life and can lead to explosions if you do not take care to control yourself. But you are less likely than usual to step down from a confrontation. If you are itching for a fight, make it an honest one that can bring truth into your life.

 

 

Sep 23, 2004    (Sep 12, 2004 to Oct 4, 2004)  Jup/Ura Oppos Ura

 

    This is a time when you need a great deal of freedom and independence.  Your thoughts take you in your own unique direction which can make cooperation with others a bit more difficult.  But you can get some very exciting ideas that may open up new worlds of opportunity for you and help you change your present reality.

 

 

Sep 24, 2004    (Aug 27, 2004 to May 13, 2005)Sat/Nep Oppos Moon

 

    Your emotions are not likely to be light or breezy right now.  You may feel a bit overburdened by your daily routine.  This can also be a time when you need to re-examine that routine and make the necessary changes so that it seems less heavy for you.  The vulnerability that you may be feeling now can open the door to compassion.  This may allow you to respond more sensitively to your own emotions and your own inner feelings.  In this way, you can create a more protective and nurturing environment for yourself.

 

 

Sep 27, 2004    (Sep 14, 2004 to Oct 14, 2004)  Sat Conj Ven/Plu

 

    You will do better now if you are willing to look into the deepest recesses of yourself and be absolutely truthful about relationships.  You may not like everything you see about yourself or others, but this is an ideal time to clean out the secrets and make a fresh start.  You could be feeling resentful or disappointed in others.  Being direct and honest can help cut through some of the manipulation and feelings of uncertainty.

 

 

Sep 29, 2004    (Sep 24, 2004 to Oct 4, 2004)       Jup Qucnx MC

 

    Opportunities to expand your professional reputation and your standing in the community present themselves, but are a mixed blessing at this time. Prior commitments may interfere and prevent you from taking advantage of what is presented, or you will be forced to choose. It is an either/or situation in some respects. There may also be some minor legal problems or trouble with bureaucrats and officials.

 

    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.

 

 

Oct 1, 2004     (Sep 29, 2004 to Oct 2, 2004)Mars Conj Moon/Merc

 

    You are mentally quick and reactive.  It may not be easy for you to let any remarks pass without comment.  Watch your tongue unless you know exactly the effect you want to have on others.  Try to be patient and use your sharp perceptions with discrimination.

 

 

Oct 3, 2004     (Oct 1, 2004 to Oct 4, 2004)       Mars Conj Nep

 

    You have strange desires, impulses, and feelings which are difficult to describe or understand. Your usual daily pursuits seem drab, meaningless, or curiously unsatisfying, so that it may be difficult to motivate yourself and focus on your work. On the other hand, you can get very fired up about something out of the ordinary, an ideal or dream, or fantasy that you usually consider too impractical to actually do anything about. Your imagination is very active. Artistic, creative work which expresses a visionary, whimsical, or fantastic quality is very fulfilling to you at this time.

 

 

Oct 6, 2004     (Oct 4, 2004 to Oct 8, 2004)   Mars/Jup Conj Nep

 

    You may want to go on a holy crusade or fight for a noble cause or seek your dreams at this time.  This is wonderful stuff for fiction but can be hard to satisfy in real life.  You can start with your idealism and ask yourself where you can take action and be a leader in making the world a better place.  Another possibility is just to take off to Tahiti for an indefinite period.  This is certainly not a period of restraint and routine for you.

 

 

Oct 8, 2004     (Oct 5, 2004 to Oct 11, 2004) Mars/Sat Conj Merc

 

    You can be under some mental strain now.  There may be many details to attend to and time can be pressing on you.  At its best, however, this can be a time for very sharp and focused thinking, a period in which you can develop some solid ideas and express them succinctly.

 

 

Oct 8, 2004     (Oct 7, 2004 to Oct 10, 2004)     Mars Sxtil Asc

 

    At this time you are able to be very clear and aboveboard with other people, bringing out your desires and differences between yourself and others in a way that is unlikely to offend or stir up hostility. Because you appear confident, others are inclined to follow your lead now.

 

 

Oct 9, 2004     (Oct 4, 2004 to Oct 14, 2004) Jup Conj Moon/Merc

 

    Your radar is working at full speed right now.  You are very alert to everything that is going on around you and may be able to handle complex problems with relative ease.  You need to talk, share your feelings, and open up to others.  This is a good time for conversation and for writing and communications of all kinds.  It can also be a good time for travel.

 

 

Oct 11, 2004    (Oct 10, 2004 to Oct 13, 2004)    Mars Sxtil Plu

 

    You may be considering a major overhaul or revision in your ambitions at this time. If you do not have a sense of meaningful purpose or a passionate commitment to anything, you will want to reassess where you are going and why. If you do have a clear goal, you can make significant progress and work with great satisfaction now. An opportunity to do what you really want to do is likely.

 

 

Oct 13, 2004    (Oct 11, 2004 to Oct 15, 2004)      Mars Sqr Ven

 

    Your amorous feelings and passions are strong and compelling at this time, and you tend to be very demanding of a lover's energy and affection. Tensions may erupt in close relationships because one of you feels that you have been giving more and not receiving enough in return, or one of you is more amorous than the other. Frustrated love desire can easily turn to anger or irritability at this time.

 

 

Oct 16, 2004    (Oct 11, 2004 to Oct 21, 2004)      Jup Conj Nep

 

    Your mind wanders to faraway places, and your imagination is kindled with thoughts of the exotic, mystical, and fantastic. You feel restless and bored by your daily routine. You are unable to concentrate on mundane matters and you may find yourself daydreaming. This is a good time to vacation and travel.

 

    A new surge of religious or spiritual aspiration is also evident. You feel a need to be more in touch with spiritual forces, and this is a good time for attending religious and spiritual functions, reading inspirational literature, etc. This is the time to open your mind and imagination to a grander vision and to inspire your highest aspirations. Allow yourself the time to pursue these interests.

 

 

Oct 18, 2004    (Oct 17, 2004 to Oct 20, 2004)   Mars Trine Mars

 

    Self-confidence, physical energy, and courage run high, so this is a fine time to undertake any project or challenge that confronts you, especially if it involves competition or asserting yourself vigorously. You are inclined to take charge or assume a leadership role at this time.

 

 

Oct 20, 2004    (Oct 19, 2004 to Oct 22, 2004)Mars Conj Moon/Jup

 

    This is a great time to spread your wings and fly.  You need to stretch yourself, to take on challenges, and to have things to look forward to.  Your belief in yourself can be an effective means of getting the support and enthusiasm of others.

 

 

Oct 21, 2004    (Oct 20, 2004 to Oct 23, 2004)    Mars Trine Ura

 

    Increased physical courage and a strong sense of adventure combine to make this a very interesting time. You need to do something innovative, daring, unusual, liberating, exciting, and challenging. You are inclined to act on some of the wilder impulses and desires you feel from time to time. You crave stimulation. If you have an inventive streak, you could make a startling discovery or breakthrough now.

 

 

Oct 22, 2004    (Oct 19, 2004 to Oct 25, 2004)Mars/Nep Oppos Mars

 

    You have the capacity to act with great sensitivity and delicacy at this time.  This can be a time when you also act with great compassion and imagination.  On the other hand, you can also find that you are easily misled or that you have difficulty being efficient and, therefore, need to be careful that you don't wear yourself out.

 

 

Oct 25, 2004    (Oct 24, 2004 to Oct 27, 2004)      Mars Sqr Sat

 

    This is likely to be a time of considerable frustration and discouragement for you. You are unusually sensitive to criticism of your efforts and to the limitations and restraints that your responsibilities entail. Fighting with authority figures or lashing out at others who restrict you in any way is a strong possibility. A sense of struggle or of being overwhelmed by obstacles and blockages is likely to characterize this period. Be patient and don't demand too much of yourself at this time. Work quietly and steadily and rely only on your own resources.

 

 

Oct 25, 2004    (Oct 24, 2004 to Oct 27, 2004)Mars Conj Moon/Nep

 

    Don't push yourself now.  You need to handle your physical energy with tenderness.  It is too easy to waste time and energy if you are not careful.  You do have the ability to act with incredible sensitivity now and can bring healing and compassion to others.

 

 

Oct 28, 2004    (Oct 25, 2004 to Oct 31, 2004)Mars/Nep Oppos Ura

 

    This is a period which is marked by restlessness and the need to break with your old routine.  You can find this a fantastic time of experimentation and strange new activities.  Sticking to a plan or schedule, however, is not going to be very easy at this time so be as flexible about this as you can be.

 

 

Oct 28, 2004    (Oct 19, 2004 to Nov 7, 2004)  Jup/Sat Conj Merc

 

    You may want to reassess the ways in which you gather information and share it with others.  Getting some kind of training of the mind or in communication skills can be useful at this time. You may recognize that your attention to the details keeps you from seeing the big picture.  Ideally, you can use this period to place your current situation in a larger perspective, gaining a deeper sense of meaning about your life purpose.

 

 

Oct 28, 2004    (Oct 27, 2004 to Oct 30, 2004)    Mars Sxtil Sun

 

    Your physical drive and energy level are high now, and you can accomplish a great deal fairly easily. You are inclined to take the initiative or to strike out on your own, and you are likely to be successful at what you attempt at this time. Because you assert yourself in a positive manner, a leadership role or an opportunity to do something you have wanted to do on your own is likely to be offered to you.

 

 

Nov 2, 2004     (Oct 28, 2004 to Nov 7, 2004)      Jup Sxtil Asc

 

    This is a harmonious, enjoyable time for you. Things run smoothly and your work is likely to take an enjoyable turn now. Pressures and deadlines are lifted. You may be asked to attend an enjoyable event or travel at this time. You wish that your life was always like this! You are not very aggressive or particularly energetic, but intense effort is not required.

 

    Cooperation and mutual support in business-related and career-related matters is also very high. You will also find that peace and cooperation can be established between factions that have been at odds with each other. Legal matters and any involvement with government agencies or large organizations work out fortunately now. Personal relationships are also harmonious now, and there is an increased appreciation for each others' goals and aspirations, and you help each other more in achieving these 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.

 

 

Nov 8, 2004     (Oct 16, 2004 to Nov 30, 2004)     sat sxtil jup

 

     Cooperation and successful collaboration in the business and professional world are highlighted now. Legal matters and governmental matters of all kinds run very smoothly now. If you are involved in any legal disputes or involvements with government agencies, this is a time when a successful resolution can be reached. This is a good time to bring about increased harmony and cooperation in any organization, club, or business of which you are a part.

 

 

Nov 12, 2004    (Nov 10, 2004 to Nov 13, 2004)     Mars Oppos MC

 

    This is a low point as far as getting ahead or achieving anything in the world is concerned. For now, your energy needs to go into your personal life, home, and family matters. Stress which has been building up both at work and in your family relationships needs to be released now. Try to work out or find ways to express yourself physically, like working in the yard or playing sports; otherwise, you are prone to becoming pugnacious with the people you are closest to.

 

 

Nov 12, 2004    (Oct 14, 2004 to Dec 8, 2004)     ura oppos merc

 

    The tempo of your life is very fast at this time. If you live in an urban area or are involved in activities that are fast-paced and dynamic, then this time period may become too intense for you. You can expect a lot of phone calls, meetings, and encounters with interesting and unusual people. Your thinking is stimulated by exposure to new ideas, but there is so much going on around you that it is difficult for you to concentrate. You may find yourself talking on the phone and thinking about something else at the same time while your spouse or children are asking you to get off the phone because they want your attention! This is a time of intense mental activity and communication, but you must not let it get out of hand. Find enough quiet time to sort things out and think deeply about the exciting and interesting ideas that you encounter now.

 

    Life tends to be rather unpredictable and things have a way of running their own course regardless of your plans and intentions! It can be an exciting time, but plans can be disrupted. If you have a meeting or event that requires your prompt attendance, then leave early for it in case unexpected problems arise!

 

    This is an excellent time to learn, particularly in areas that are new for you. Opportunities to explore subjects that you have had little chance to study before will now come to you. This is a time when you can gain a great amount of skill and knowledge, particularly in progressive, unusual, or technological subjects.

 

    While this is an excellent time for learning, you can make big mistakes when it comes to major decisions in your life. You may be tempted to make a radical change now, but you are inclined to be taken away by the excitement of the moment and less sensitive to the practical issues and realities at hand.

 

 

Nov 13, 2004    (Nov 8, 2004 to Nov 18, 2004)      Jup Sxtil Plu

 

    Cooperation with businesses, government agencies, organizations, and influential individuals is highlighted now. You will find that you can gain cooperation and support from authorities and bureaucracies that previously ignored your requests or advice. Organizations and influential people are also more willing to assist you in your personal plans and interests.

 

    You may be called upon to be a representative of an organization or to assume a leadership role at this time. If so, you will perform this function very successfully.

 

 

Nov 14, 2004    (Nov 12, 2004 to Nov 15, 2004)   Mars Sxtil Merc

 

    You have a lot of mental energy and are eager to "attack" intellectual or conceptual problems. You are likely to come up with a clever solution or a very workable plan, especially if you brainstorm with others. You also tend to make up your mind very quickly and decisively now and to translate your ideas into action.

 

 

Nov 17, 2004    (Nov 15, 2004 to Nov 18, 2004)    Mars Conj Moon

 

    At this time you are more temperamental, impassioned, and inclined to act on the dictates of emotion and desire rather than reason. Minor annoyances and others' idiosyncrasies aggravate you more than usual. You are in a fighting mood. Your relationships with your family and the women you are closest to are likely to be stormy.

 

 

Nov 19, 2004    (Nov 14, 2004 to Nov 25, 2004)       Jup Sqr Ven

 

    Work and other responsibilities are particularly irksome to you at this time. You feel like it is "play time" and you want to get out, laugh, play, and sing. Parties and social gatherings also appeal to you now, and you enjoy meeting new people. You are in a festive mood, and your happy mood is contagious; others join in the fun with you. This is a wonderful time to have a party, engage in team sports, or vacation. Hard work and concentrated effort are difficult for you now, and productivity at work is likely to decrease, particularly if your line of work requires concentrated effort.

 

    You have little control of your emotions at this time. You will spend more money than you should and eat more than you should. But you will enjoy it! Hopefully, you do not go overboard to the extent that you seriously regret your purchases and excesses afterward.

 

    One thing that can rub you the wrong way right now is restrictions and responsibilities. If your spouse, family member, or close friend makes a lot of demands on you, then you will feel exceedingly uncomfortable and find it hard to understand why they just can't drop their concerns and have some fun.

 

 

Nov 22, 2004    (Oct 22, 2004 to Dec 19, 2004)     Plu Trine Sun

 

     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.

 

 

Nov 23, 2004    (Nov 21, 2004 to Nov 24, 2004)      Mars Sqr Asc

 

    Irritations, conflicts with the people you relate to on a daily basis, and a generalized feeling of impatience or edginess characterize this period. Because you are not feeling very obliging or compromising, this is not a good time to try to come to an agreement with another. However, you need to get your grievances out in the open; otherwise the tension builds up to an unmanageable level.

 

 

Nov 26, 2004    (Nov 24, 2004 to Nov 27, 2004)      Mars Sqr Plu

 

    Your drive for personal power, achievement, or control over your life is very strong at this time. The tyrant in you emerges, and you can be excessively willful, domineering, or compulsive about doing what you want to. You battle anyone or anything that is an obstacle to your individual freedom of action, and ego conflicts or a furious power struggle may ensue. Also, you can be unmerciful with yourself and your own weaknesses. You are likely to push yourself much too hard.

 

 

Nov 27, 2004    (Nov 26, 2004 to Nov 29, 2004)    Mars Trine Ven

 

    Right now you are more magnetic and sexually attractive, and your love life is likely to be both harmonious and satisfying. You experience a positive flow of warmth and friendliness between yourself and others, and you are stimulated and energized by your casual interactions with others of the opposite sex. Creative and artistic efforts also flourish at this time.

 

 

Dec 2, 2004     (Dec 1, 2004 to Dec 4, 2004)     Mars Qucnx Mars

 

     A sudden accident, trauma, violent outburst, or fever are possibilities now. If you have been withholding any animosity, not taking what you need for yourself, or been in any sort of ongoing battle with another, the stress is likely to become unbearable. You also tend to force yourself unmercifully now, which will backfire. You might sustain injuries in a competitive situation or "burn out".

 

 

Dec 5, 2004     (Dec 4, 2004 to Dec 7, 2004)      Mars Qucnx Ura

 

     You act very impulsively and may do something spontaneously that really upsets the status quo in your life. Daring and reckless, you act with fierce independence. All manner of accidents could result from this rash foolishness. You are apt to feel tense, "wired", cross, or out of control. You might wish to avoid traveling at this time.

 

 

Dec 9, 2004     (Dec 8, 2004 to Dec 11, 2004)     Mars Trine Sat

 

    Your concentration is excellent now and you are serious about your work. You want to focus on real accomplishment and avoid frivolity and distractions. You may fruitfully tackle difficult, disagreeable tasks or work that usually frustrates you, for your patience and ability to do painstaking work is brought out now. Self-control and self-discipline are required of you at this time but, fortunately, they yield positive results in the long run.

 

 

Dec 9, 2004     (Dec 7, 2004 to Dec 12, 2004) Mars/Ura Oppos Ven

 

    You can be impatient in relationships now.  Others may see you as rude, but the tables could be turned as you feel that others are pushing you.  In either case, the point is to shake up relationships and to bring some new approaches to love and intimacy.  Think of this as a time for experimenting and you will likely be more open and flexible.

 

 

Dec 10, 2004    (Dec 4, 2004 to Dec 18, 2004)     Jup Trine Mars

 

    Positive developments in career, business, and professional pursuits are likely at this time. A promotion, salary raise, or an opportunity to advance in your career may present itself at this time. If an offer or opportunity does not present itself, then apply yourself towards attaining a goal that you have been seeking. You can have a stroke of good luck now, and your judgment and sense of timing are excellent. However, it may not just fall in your lap, and you may have need to seek out the opportunity. Also, the improvement that is possible is usually not of great magnitude, but a solid and significant advancement is very feasible at this time.

 

    Your health and vitality are good now. You feel confident and ambitious, and you enjoy athletic events and sports immensely now. You may try your hand at a new sport or athletic game. You are energetic and optimistic, without being pushy or impatient. Events work out smoothly now.

 

 

Dec 12, 2004    (Dec 11, 2004 to Dec 14, 2004)      Mars Sqr Sun

 

    You are inclined to be aggressive and hot-tempered now, particularly when your will is blocked. Your pushiness or competitive attitude is likely to create antagonism, hostility, and further resistance to your efforts. It is best to work alone rather than try to cooperate or coordinate your efforts with anyone at this time. Also, you are impatient and tend to behave in an impulsive, irritable way which makes you more prone to accidents during this period.

 

 

Dec 15, 2004    (Dec 12, 2004 to Dec 17, 2004)Mars/Jup Conj Moon

 

    You can be feeling buoyant and optimistic.  You are in a cycle which is positive for opening up and showing your feelings in a very outgoing manner.  This is not a time to sit around the house or to play it safe and protect yourself.  You need movement now and could be feeling very restless unless you already have some big plans to pursue.

 

 

Dec 20, 2004    (Dec 2, 2004 to Jan 2, 2005)    Sat Conj Ven/Plu

 

    You will do better now if you are willing to look into the deepest recesses of yourself and be absolutely truthful about relationships.  You may not like everything you see about yourself or others, but this is an ideal time to clean out the secrets and make a fresh start.  You could be feeling resentful or disappointed in others.  Being direct and honest can help cut through some of the manipulation and feelings of uncertainty.

 

 

Dec 20, 2004    (Dec 8, 2004 to Jan 4, 2005)  Jup/Nep Oppos Mars

 

    You may learn to take the initiative for doing something idealistic, spiritual or imaginative.  This is a time when you need to take on a cause or project which inspires the best in you and uses all of your creativity.  Your need to fight for the noble cause can benefit the community, but you can also go off on a tangent and dispense a great deal of energy in pursuing unrealistic goals.

 

 

Dec 22, 2004    (Dec 20, 2004 to Dec 23, 2004)    Mars Sxtil Jup

 

    Doors open and new opportunities for personal and professional growth present themselves. Any initiative or action you feel inclined to take at this time is likely to lead to a positive outcome for you. Partnerships or joining with others for mutual benefit is favored. Your energy level is high; this is a good time for athletics, especially team sports.

 

 

Dec 25, 2004    (Dec 22, 2004 to Dec 29, 2004) Mars/Sat Conj Jup

 

    Big plans may take a tumble as you run into obstacles.  Beliefs can be weakened in the face of real life struggles.  This is a period in which you can build for the future, but you need to be willing to work very hard and to be patient in getting results.  Take the time to think about your projects and plan to tackle them with efficiency.

 

 

Dec 26, 2004    (Dec 18, 2004 to Jan 6, 2005)      Jup Trine Ura

 

    This is a freewheeling, enterprising, and creative time. Fortunate opportunities arise. A new wave of optimism lifts your spirits, and successful developments in both personal and career matters make this an enjoyable time. Your creative efforts find a successful outlet, and you receive an enthusiastic response from others. This is a time of harmony and well-being. If you have been waiting for a time to open a new door through a job change, business or commercial contact, or outlet for creative work, now is the time to pursue it with a passion. You are lucky, enthusiastic, and creative but not aggressive or even that practical, so you may choose to simply enjoy this time with enjoyable and entertaining activities rather than attempt to gain practical rewards and tangible gains.

 

 

Dec 26, 2004    (Dec 25, 2004 to Dec 28, 2004)     Mars Qucnx MC

 

     Disputes over work, career, professional reputation, and long-range personal goals are indicated. Premature action, showing your cards too soon, or inability to rely on co-workers or suppliers can cause much aggravation. You may somehow threaten your superiors or others who are influential in helping you gain your objectives. Biding your time would be better in the long run, though right now it may rile you.

 

 

Dec 28, 2004    (Dec 27, 2004 to Dec 29, 2004)     Mars Sqr Merc

 

    Verbal battles, disputes, and heated debates are very likely at this time because you speak your mind without much forethought, tact, or consideration of consequences. Right now you will say the things you usually only think, especially to people you disagree with. Also, you are quite impatient and easily frustrated and are inclined to move about too quickly and abruptly, which can cause accidents. Unless you slow your pace down a bit, this time period can be quite a headache.

 

 

Dec 31, 2004    (Dec 29, 2004 to Jan 3, 2005) Mars/Ura Oppos Sat

 

    As much as you might like to stay on track and stick to your schedule, it is unlikely that you can do so now.  Either outside influences or your own need for change can force you to break the rules or stray from the official plan.  This is a time to let the new come in as resistance can only bring more pressure. Relax, if you can, and let yourself be surprised by how interesting life can be when you let go.

 

 

Jan 1, 2005     (Dec 30, 2004 to Jan 2, 2005)     Mars Sxtil Nep

 

    This is not a period when you feel like pushing your own interests or one in which you are especially energetic. Other people's concerns and needs receive more attention from you now, and you are more motivated to do something which serves others, perhaps a group you are affiliated with. Cooperating with others for some idealistic purpose is very satisfying for you at this time.

 

 

Jan 3, 2005     (Dec 1, 2004 to Jan 25, 2005)  Ura Oppos Jup/Plu

 

    There is a tendency to be attracted to extreme people and extreme points of view.  You may not be in a compromising mood and can be quite adamant about the correctness of your beliefs.  This intensity can come through in all areas of your life and can lead to explosions if you do not take care to control yourself. But you are less likely than usual to step down from a confrontation. If you are itching for a fight, make it an honest one that can bring truth into your life.

 

 

Jan 6, 2005     (Dec 24, 2004 to Jan 18, 2005) Sat Conj Merc/Ura

 

    This could be the time when you are able to take your original and wild ideas and begin to turn them into reality. Your inventiveness is tested by the real world.  For some people this is a time when they feel that others are not understanding them. Breakdowns in communications can leave you feeling alone and misunderstood.  But if you take the time to be clear, you may be able to share some extraordinary ideas and insights.

 

 

Jan 7, 2005     (Dec 9, 2004 to Jan 28, 2005)     Ura Trine Moon

 

    You are more spontaneous, free, and uninhibited in your expression of feelings now. Your sense of humor is very good, and you can expect a lot of good times, laughter, and joking throughout this period. This is an excellent time for get-togethers with close friends and family members. Games of all kinds appeal to you now and you may find yourself playing games that you haven't played since you were a youngster, frolicking and laughing like a child too. The child in you is very strong now, and you simply are not in the mood for taking life too seriously. Take full advantage of the opportunities that arise that let you break away from your usual routine and have a good time. There is lots of "play time" so if you are a workaholic, you will just have to tear yourself away from your addiction and allow yourself to have a good time!

 

    This is a time to open the windows and let the fresh air in. Many of your habits and familiar surroundings will be rejuvenated now. You may improve or change your home or landscaping, improve your health habits and rejuvenate your physical body, buy a newer, sportier car, or tear yourself away from humdrum or lukewarm situations that you have become inured to over the years (for example, watching too much television). Now is the time when you experiment and explore more interesting alternatives.

 

    You are also likely to feel the impulse to reawaken old interests that you may not have had the time for in many years -perhaps playing a musical instrument, playing a sport, or engaging in some form of entertainment that you enjoyed as a child. The best advice I can give you is to do all these things fully and do not hold back. Reawaken those old interests and embellish them with a new flourish that appeals to you now. Also follow your instinct to try new things and do things in a different manner than you have ever done before. Even seemingly insignificant things like changes in your home decor or style of dress can have a big effect on your attitude and often are important because they symbolize an important shift in your attitudes.

 

 

Jan 8, 2005     (Aug 27, 2004 to May 13, 2005)Sat/Nep Oppos Moon

 

    Your emotions are not likely to be light or breezy right now.  You may feel a bit overburdened by your daily routine.  This can also be a time when you need to re-examine that routine and make the necessary changes so that it seems less heavy for you.  The vulnerability that you may be feeling now can open the door to compassion.  This may allow you to respond more sensitively to your own emotions and your own inner feelings.  In this way, you can create a more protective and nurturing environment for yourself.

 

 

Jan 16, 2005    (Dec 22, 2004 to Feb 4, 2005)      Ura Qucnx Nep

 

     Sudden revelations, altered states of consciousness, awakenings, or bursts of spiritual enthusiasm and inspiration are indicated now. You may feel overly sensitized to your environment, unusually discontented with the mundane aspects of your life, or just plain confused at times. You feel as if you are in transition, yet the changes are elusive. Avoid mind-altering or mood-altering substances now; they can further imbalance you. Also, you tend towards extremes in spiritual matters at present. Cultivate a sense of balance and proportion.

 

 

Jan 26, 2005    (Dec 29, 2004 to Feb 22, 2005)    Nep Trine Mars

 

    Your motivations and personal ambitions become more elevated and idealistic now. You are able to see your work in a better perspective. Rather than focusing on the strictly personally rewarding aspects of your efforts (for example, your income, amount of vacation time, and other amenities), you are more sensitive to the value of your service as a contribution to society. You may read books, talk to others, or have other experiences that broaden your awareness of how your work plays an integral part in meeting the needs of society. This is an excellent time to make changes in your work methods and approaches, so that customers, clients, and other recipients of your work are better served. Because you are now better able to see your services from the customer's point of view, you are better able to implement changes that make important improvements.

 

    Your sense of spiritual purpose and direction is enhanced now. Your life is put in better perspective and you feel more confident that your goals are well-founded. Any opportunities that come to you now are likely to assist you in improving your work and directing you into channels that are meaningful to you. These changes do not necessarily increase your salary or bring other personal benefits, but they do help you in less tangible ways, as discussed above.

 

    Your approach to work and projects is rather relaxed right now. You are not very aggressive and you tend to give others the benefit of the doubt. If you have a responsibility to manage or direct others, your more tolerant and relaxed approach is likely to work out well, but do not go to extremes as an undisciplined, lax attitude may develop among workers.

    The positive side of this pattern is that some old barriers and limits may start to come down.  However, this can cause you to feel less secure.  Indeed, you need to be very alert to situations which look very solid but, in fact, are not. Research the situation carefully in order to avoid unpleasant surprises such as other people not revealing all the necessary information, leaving you to pay some unexpected bills.
