Introduction

 


Grant Lewi (1902 - 1951) is a legendary figure among twentieth century astrologers. He was a writer and editor for the two largest astrological magazines of the time. His two books, Heaven Knows What
and Astrology for the Millions, were the first astrological books to become best sellers and even today, over fifty years later, they remain among the best introductions to the subject of astrology.

The astrological interpretations found in Heaven Knows What and Astrology for the Millions were unique, fresh, and simple. Llewellyn George, the prominent astrologer of the time, remarked that Lewi's interpretations must be intuitive because they were unlike any that had been written before him. Today these interpretations remain energetic and forceful and, though some references are now dated, Lewi's text still  provides some of the clearest insights found anywhere in the literature of astrology.

Lewi was determined to make astrology more accessible to the average person, but while popularizing the subject he never watered it down or reduced it to the level found in "sun sign" astrology. Writing before computers were available, he made his books function as the computer, providing the reader with tables to generate their own charts or horoscopes and then linking his interpretations to the information found there. Lewi would have made good use of the computer, so much in his books seem to anticipate them. In his writing he tried to emulate the interpretation process by using a computerless version of artificial intelligence: the meaning of a planet in a sign doesn't stand alone but is modified by the other aspects found in your chart. Many of his comments depend on a combination of factors and for this reason you will sometimes find that he has something different to say about an aspect in your chart than he does for the same aspect in your friend's chart.

This report calculates your chart for you and then collects all of Lewi's comments strictly according to the astrological factors found there. The text contained here is valid even for those who don't know their time of birth - Lewi focused on those factors that are in effect throughout the birthday. The only exception to this is the case of the Moon which can move between 12 and 14 degrees in a day, so if the positions were calculated for noon then the Moon could be as much as 6 or 7 degrees different and possibly even change signs. If you don't know your time and the texts that involve the Moon seem unlikely, you may wish to compare reports done for the beginning and the end of the day.

At all times, Lewi’s aim has been to show how astrology can be used as an aid in living a more satisfying and fulfilling life. Astrology offers indications and pointers - and sometimes insights - to situations that you find in life. It doesn’t tell you what to do about them, but if it offers you a better understanding of the situation, then you are in a better position to decide for yourself what to do. To quote Grant Lewi:

"It is not limitations that eats out the heart, but inaction, the knowledge of powers not used, the sense of having failed to develop to the utmost. The overcoming of fate is not the overcoming of limitations: that is impossible. It is the exercise of free will, the assertion of the full self, expanding to its utmost with the tools at hand, in the circumstances that are set. Astrology, through the interpretation of the horoscope, assists men to the achievement of their maximum by indicating to them the lines along which their will may be most progressively applied, the goals to be sought, and the individual means by which each one may arrive at the outermost boundaries of his world."





 

Horoscope of Birth

 


Your horoscope of birth is the blueprint of your personality and character as indicated by the position of the Sun, the Moon and the eight planets on the date of your birth. This section is devoted to each of these members of the solar system.

The planets are the antennae and arms of the horoscope, of which the body and soul are the Sun and Moon. No planet will ever cause you to act counter to the testimony of the Sun and Moon in their combined influence on you. Remember this when you proceed with the following readings. All planetary vibration must be considered in light of the basic solar-lunar readings, for these are your character, your basic nature, which the planets will help or hinder but cannot materially change.

According to the sign position of your Sun, one planet will be more important than the others and should probably be read first. Your Sun is in Scorpio and your dominant planet is Mars. Not only the action of this ruling planet will be very important in your life, but also the attribute over which it rules. Thus Gemini, ruled by Mercury, lives a great deal in the senses; Libra, ruled by Venus, responds most readily to emotional stimuli; and so on. Study your ruler carefully.

Remember in all planetary readings that they work within the pattern of your solar-lunar nature; never against it. The synthesis of your horoscope from the following series of paragraphs to a working unit depends on your keeping this in mind, which will enable you to weld all the readings into a unified and significant whole.



Sun in Scorpio and Moon in Leo

You have a strong, positive personality; fixed opinions and emotions; great stability of purpose; and if you do not let yourself live on the strictly emotional side of your nature - which is very strong - you are capable of becoming a person of considerable influence and importance. The danger of your nature comes from emotional involvement; you are strongly impressed by romantic considerations, and you can take up all your energy dreaming and thinking about the far away and long ago, or about love in some manifestation or other. You are, with respect to love, somewhat idealistic, but with a realistic approach to matters of sex; you are no prude, though you give, and expect in return, loyalty and fidelity.

You have a very complete ideology of life, not all of it too realistic; for emotional disappointments and frustrations have driven you to ideals, concepts, and abstractions of philosophy which seem visionary to more practical people. None the less, you find a lot of satisfaction in your dreams, your only danger being that they will absorb you too completely. Few people can live up to the high standards you set for them; and even when you are swept off your feet by anger, romance, hatred, jealousy, or revenge, you maintain the idea that you are really an idealist, and that your temporary lapse isn't really you at all. This is all right, if the lapses don't become habitual; but you have to hold yourself very strongly in leash, so that the Old Adam in you doesn't beat down the Regenerate Man. You can be of the earth earthy; and sensationalism can gain a tremendous hold on you if you are not careful. It is to combat this tendency, of which you are conscious (or subconscious), that you have built up your complex system of ideals.

The dangers of sensationalism are increased with your Moon square Neptune, Venus conjunct Uranus, and Saturn opposite Uranus but your will comes to your rescue, for you have the most powerful of wills and need it. Nerves are a problem. Your great magnetism, when working without the disadvantage of personal bias, can make you a leader, for you can make people do as you want, and can gain tremendous control over them when you have learned objectivity and detachment from your emotions.



Sun

The Sun indicates the appearance you will present before the world and the psychological bias which will dominate your actions. What you seem, and why, are told in the reading for your Sun. In many ways the Sun is the dominant force in your horoscope and in your life. Other influences, especially that of the Moon, may modify the Sun's influence, but nothing will cause you to depart very far from the basic solar pattern. For this reason a whole literature and a whole business have grown up around Sun-sign astrology; and many people exist who think there is nothing more to the horoscope than knowing what "sign you were born in" and what the Sun in that sign means. This is a mistake, as you will discover when you have read the influence of the other bodies. But throughout your reading, keep in mind always the basic influence of the Sun, and remember that all other influences must be interpreted in terms of it, especially in so far as other influences play a visible role in your life. You may think, dream, imagine, hope to be a thousand things, according to your Moon and your other planets, but the Sun is what you are, and to be your best self in terms of your Sun is to cause your energies to work along the path in which they will have maximum help from planetary vibrations.


Sun in Scorpio

"I wish to preach not the doctrine of ignoble case, but the doctrine of the strenuous life.... Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows not victory or defeat."

Theodore Roosevelt, born in Scorpio, October 27, 1858.

 

The dualism of Scorpio makes it a baffling sign, for the Scorpion combines materialism with spirituality. He is "the world, the flesh and the devil" and also the spirit that renounces them. He is full of the zest of life, which, however, is meaningful only after he has added a unique, almost mystic, significance. The search for inner values, for the key to the riddle of self, of world, of life itself, is Scorpio's basic motivation, and his search, whether it takes him to spiritual heights or into the darkest of subconscious depths, is always intense. To him, "Life is real, life is earnest, and the grave is not its goal." Scorpio takes himself, his work, his ideals, his love seriously and insists that others do the same; yet at the same time he is aware of the fleetingness of it, the futility of it, the smallness of it. Not usually religious in any orthodox sense, he has his own personal religion, which is more mystic than philosophic, and which is part of the depths of his profound nature.

Scorpio is the only sign that never produces a shallow person. The best of the rest dip into nonentities from time to time, but a Scorpion is always consequential. You must reckon with him even if you dislike or despise him. He can sink to the lowest level of them all if the sense of futility turns his great energies inward instead of outward; but to whatever level he may sink, he carries with him an essential dignity, as if to represent the greatness of Lucifer in fall as well as in glory. At its best, Scorpio is a mechanical, spiritual or legal genius, though rarely an executive. Luxurious and extravagant in his tastes, he lacks interest in making money because, when he calls on his maximum powers, they lead him to noncommercial fields. So great is his magnetism that he will generally be found in a position where he can get all he wants without giving his all, which is reserved for private, perhaps secret, pursuits.

Scorpio is careful of appearances, generally a conformist in all that meets the eye, and would not willingly let you into the private details of his life, thoughts and philosophies. Yet these are very clear to him and provide him with an unexpressed viewpoint that gives him great poise. He looks at the world with aware, perhaps accusing, eyes; he does not betray the secret he has with himself, which gives him reserve and self-assurance and an uncanny knack of making the other fellow feel that he knows more than he is expressing. Part of the secret of Scorpio (no one can tell you all of the secret except the individual Scorpion himself, and he won't) is the simplicity with which he accepts the merger of the material and the spiritual. He relates all problems of life to a standard of intangibles that is unknown to other men, achieves a practical answer in terms of his secret, perhaps unconscious, doctrine of the worlds, and thus adds to his personality the sort of magic one would have who consulted with an invisible, but ever-present, guardian angel.

Following are the aspects to your Sun. In a general way, the trines and sextiles to your Sun make ease, contentment, happiness, luck; while squares and oppositions give you energy, drive, success, ambition. Conjunctions bring both energy and luck, and are translatable in terms of whether the Sun receives squares or trines, along with the conjunction. Similarly, squares and trines to the Sun together bring success through work and perseverance, and luck develops in proportion to the work done and the effort extended. Your luck and energy may be good, but you need to work up drive, direction, and purpose.



Sun Conjunct Mercury     Orb: 09°55'

You have a sound mentality. along whatever lines you work you are fundamentally sane. Even with the erratic aspect, Mars square Saturn and Mars square Uranus, which makes for nervousness, you have a hitching post of normalcy. Men and women with this aspect have an assurance against serious or permanent mental difficulties which will carry them through a whole lot of stress and bring them out the right side. Stubbornness is marked, and you are a tough customer to make change your mind once you have it made up. You are studious and sound in your intellectual work, but this position does not in itself make for creative ability. This will make for perseverance - the ability to add the ninety-nine percent of perspiration to genius's one percent of inspiration.


Sun Sextile Mars     Orb: 00°18'

You have abundant physical vitality and little hesitancy in using it. You are always on the move. Your aims and purposes, being direct and clear and animated by a good physical equipment, carry you to success. You are forceful, hard-hitting, aggressive, knowing where you stand and where you are going. You wear out less energetic souls by the speed and continuous level of your activities, for you are seemingly tireless and can stand shoulder to shoulder with the strongest when it comes to matters of endurance. Since a good deal of the success of this world in material matters depends on physical vitality, you have an edge on competitors. You are an excellent leader not so much of thought as of action (unless Mercury is powerful) and frequently choose the army or navy as your field of activity, where you speedily rise to authority; or business, where you won't long stay in a subordinate position. You overwhelm people, and they naturally give way to you. This occurs with strong intellectual and creative bents. You are a leader of thought and a powerful personality.


Sun Sextile Jupiter     Orb: 02°39'

The qualities of luck, energy, magnanimity, and good spirits here are pronounced. You have lots of vitality and optimism, together with a broad, tolerant, philosophic viewpoint - a sort of hail-fellow-well-met person making friends readily and generally keeping them. This is an excellent position for business. In a professional or artistic career this insures financial return. No poet with this aspect ever starved in a garret, or anywhere else, for that matter. You spend freely and convivially, and your abundant vitality makes it possible for you to keep going for a long time.



Moon

While the Sun's position by sign determines what motives and urges dominate your life as it meets the naked eye, the sign position of the Moon tells the desire of your heart which may or may not be expressed or realized in your life. When you "know what you mean but you can't say it," it is your Moon that knows it and your Sun that can't say it. "Thoughts that do often lie too deep for tears" are the thoughts of your Moon's nature. The wordless ecstasy, the mute sorrow, the secret dream, the esoteric picture of yourself that you can't get across to the world, or which the world doesn't comprehend or value - these are the products of the Moon in your horoscope. When you are misunderstood, it is your Moon nature, expressed imperfectly through the Sun sign, that you feel is betrayed. When you know what you ought to do, but can't find the right way to do it, it is your Moon that knows and your Sun that refuses to react in harmony. Also, when you "don't know why I said that," it was your Moon expressing despite your Sun (if you are innerly satisfied with the involuntary speech), or the Sun expressing against the will of the Moon (if you are displeased with what has slipped out). Things you know without thought - intuitions, hunches, instincts - are the products of the Moon. Modes of expression that you feel are truly your deepest self belong to the Moon: art, letters, creative work of any kind; sometimes love; sometimes business. Whatever you feel is most deeply yourself, whether or not you are able to do anything about it in the outer world, is the product of your Moon and of the sign your Moon occupies at birth.


Moon in Leo

The portrait you paint of yourself is heroic and towers above the world you inhabit. To live up to the level of your inner picture is a lifetime job requiring energy, courage and considerable sense of the drama of existence. Private satisfactions are not very important to you; you are less introspective than most. You want to see the tangible evidence of success, and like it best if the rest of the world can see it, too. You are a bit of a show off, but since you are utterly honest with yourself, you can laugh at your own vanities, even when they remain important. You want valuable possessions, well-groomed children, good clothes, accomplishments and evidences of accomplishment that others can applaud. Your desires are basically simple, and your methods of getting them direct; you know what you want and are willing to make sacrifices for them. You won't sacrifice personal integrity, however, or honor, which are the intangibles that do matter to you. Education, culture, art, music, however, matter less. You can take 'em or leave 'em alone; and ten to one, if you do take 'em, it isn't because they really feed your soul, but because you think evidence of such a soul will in some way add to your prestige. Throughout your life you will strive to fulfill an image of yourself which is less a portrait than a statue dominating the landscape of your life by its size, its beauty, the dramatic quality of its setting and the colorful beauty of its trappings. And in becoming this statue you are likely to become a lot of other more spiritual things which you don't even desire and which are added to you because of the honest workmanship that goes into your self sculpture.

Following are the aspects to your Moon. Look to the trines and sextiles to give you charm and clear-thinking; and to the squares and oppositions to provide you with concentration and driving force.



Moon Sextile Sun     Orb: 09°48'

This adds an element of luck to the life and will tend to strengthen any good, or minimize any evil, that may be indicated by the rest of the chart. It inclines to a strong, sound body and an ability to take the ups and downs of the world in your stride. While it will not negate in any large degree the difficulties of the powerful aspects, it will cushion the blow, give you internal resilience and external poise, as well as an elastic power to bounce back to normal from any personal or economic difficulty.


Moon Trine Mars     Orb: 09°30'

You have a vigorous mind - sharp, quick, satiric - and a clipped manner of speech. You have an aggressive spirit which may or may not be manifest in your actions, but which causes your plans to soar and your ideas to expand. You have good control over your passions, which are strong; and use your anger to good purpose. You are a dangerous enemy because your fires are leashed and directed to go to the mark. In a man's horoscope this gives an aggressive wife, possibly a shrew, who none the less is good for him, stimulating him to action at the same time that she makes him mad.


Moon Conjunct Jupiter     Orb: 07°09'

Character is your god. you believe in your own personal worth from a moral and character viewpoint. Your abilities may be high or low, depending on other things, but you are utterly dependable and can be counted on to do the right thing and think the right thoughts. This doesn't make you puritanical or cold, because you have a naturally cheerful and optimistic nature, very sympathetic with other people and their troubles. You have a genuine feeling for your fellow man, his problems and difficulties. This is the aspect of the missionary who may be interested in people's souls, but chiefly wants to take care of their physical comforts on earth. Here are found social workers, doctors, nurses, and executives in these fields, to whom their occupation is more than a means of livelihood - it's a conviction and a passion. You have a certain nobility of approach and of motive - you couldn't be mean or petty if you tried, and thus your popularity and luck are well deserved, and nobody grudges them to you. You can be a stern judge, but you will always temper justice with mercy. You will condemn people, perhaps, morally, but be reluctant to punish them, and you are never vindictive. You're well fixed financially. Your Moon in Leo and Mars trine Jupiter increases your financial position even more. This is an aspect of extraordinary goodness. The humanitarian motive is uppermost and makes you an extraordinarily fine person.


Moon Square Neptune     Orb: 00°52'

This impairs the creative gifts, and your manner of thought and expression, intruding an unrealistic note into your notions and confusing practical issue with hazy and misty generalizations. In business, thought, romance, you have to keep your feet on the ground, for you love the clouds. You are capable of daydreaming by the hour and of concocting brave plans that would be marvelous - if you or anyone else could make them happen. This adds a sort of naive charm to your nature. You can believe in fairies, Santa Claus and ghosts, just as others can believe in Herbert Hoover, and your perpetual love for the mystic will intrigue those who love the innocent, the childish, the unspoiled. But all this doesn't help you much in the world of affairs, and an impractical approach to many things will stand in the way of your progress until such a time as you get your feet on the ground and hitch your wagon to a fence post.



Mercury

Mercury is the sense-impression antennae of your horoscope. His position by sign indicates your reactions to sights, sounds, odors, tastes and touch impressions, affording a key to the attitude you have toward the physical world around you. Mercury is the messenger through which your physical body and brain (the Sun) and your inner nature (the Moon) are kept in contact with the outer world, which will appear to you according to the index of Mercury's position by sign in the horoscope.


Mercury in Scorpio

You see, hear, experience with the legalistic attitude of a judge. Anything that stands before the bar of your senses isn't likely to get off easily, for you interpret critically what passes before your eyes, and not always kindly. As a result, when you give expression to your judgment, you may earn the reputation for having a sharp tongue. Your powers of observation are acute; you have the eye of an eagle, and a kind of permanent awareness of what is going on around you makes it impossible for anyone to put anything over on you. You have eyes in the back of your head, and a sixth sense tells you things that the other five miss. Criticism is part of your process of taking in the world, and you never take in much of it without passing judgment in the process. You observe accurately but not always charitably; the nerve channels through which impressions reach the brain are apparently filled with acid which eats away the superficialities that impress others and leaves only the stark realities to be recorded on your cerebellum. You are therefore a first-class critic and debunker, seeing through phoniness, sham and pretension and, since your eyes and ears rarely deceive you, pretty generally getting to the truth of what goes on.


Mercury Sextile Venus     Orb: 04°06'

Idealism is manifest, and also a leaning to the arts, either on the creative or the appreciative side. With your Mercury conjunct Neptune these tendencies may become creative activity. You may have friends among clever and intellectual people. You may marry someone from this group, for your affections are much bound up in your opinion of the loved one's mentality. You have a good deal of charm of manner, wit, and gayety to your speech, and probably have a very pleasant speaking (and perhaps also singing) voice. You don't shout even when you're angry, and you have a persuasive manner that wins people over. This is therefore good for salesmanship or the professions where personal contacts are of paramount importance.


Mercury Conjunct Neptune     Orb: 09°25'

You have a sensitive mind, plastic and impressionable, sensational and romantic. Smells and tastes mean a great deal to you, and you respond to color, music, and odor as a photographic plate responds to light. You try to find the expression for what you feel, for a desire to articulate beauty is inherent in you. This causes you to write poetry or music. You may be very successful. A tendency to fall into sensationalism is dangerous. The mind runs to sensuous thoughts and must be strictly controlled and guarded. These may range from the spiritual and idealistic to the gross and bestial, and a touch of earth is generally mixed with even the highest amount of idealism. This is an aspect of Pan the Earth God, who despite the goat hooves piped the most ethereal of songs and won the hearts of the maidens. This sensationalism, controlled and guided, produces art, poetry, charm; but allowed to run rampant, can absorb and hypnotize the whole personality destructively. You should avoid mysticism, spiritualism, and anything that is not logically provable. Once you pin yourself down to logic and reasonableness and avoid sensationalism, your mind is capable of extraordinary feats.


Mercury Sextile Pluto     Orb: 08°01'

You are fascinated by the enigmatic or bizarre, and your thinking is geared to gaining a deep understanding of the mysteries of life. Because of this, you are a natural researcher and student of the occult, the sciences, psychology and astrology. You aren't satisfied by the dogmas or theories that others are content with; your search is for a personal truth, a notion of your place in the cosmos. Although you are secretive by nature, there is nothing that gives you more pleasure than digging into other people's secrets. Your determination helps you to learn a subject in considerable depth or to get to the bottom of neighborhood gossip. You have to exert yourself to develop your mental resources, since you are apt to coast along, learning only what comes easiest. Concentration and discipline should be cultivated. Once they have been developed, you can use your powers of persuasion to lead others gently.



Venus

Venus is the emotional antenna of your horoscope. Through Venus, impressions come to you from the outer world because of which you feel and react emotionally. The position of Venus by sign at the time of your birth gives the key to your attitude toward these emotional experiences. As Mercury is the messenger linking sense impressions (sight, smell, etc.) to the basic nature of your Sun and Moon, so Venus is the messenger linking emotional impressions.


Venus in Virgo

You relate emotional experience to a well organized code of conduct. You have strong family feeling and generally have genuine affection for your relatives Your belief in the proprieties is so strong that you just don't have emotions that would involve their violation. Your impulses are usually strictly proper; if you stray from the beaten track, it is because you have convinced yourself that it is all right: you satisfy your conscience before the transgression, and rarely after. You substitute self-justification for remorse. Small niceties are emotionally important to you, and if you're not careful, you will substitute the sentimentalities of love for love itself. The proprieties as you conceive them stand guard over your emotional reactions; your sense of good taste is your emotional censor, and will keep you from many unconventionalities of those less sure of the right thing. This need not detract from the warmth of your nature, provided you don't let the tail wag the dog. Remember that the proprieties were made to serve a purpose, and that before there can be an emotional code there must be emotions. To have proprieties for their own sake is like having a general and no army.


Venus Conjunct Uranus     Orb: 09°10'

This gives an emotional nature alternately repressed and explosive, apparently somewhat conventional and cold but actually very independent and erratic in the love-life. A highly nervous quality accompanies all of your emotional dealings. You are an idealist in the realms of love, full of theories about sex and human relations in general, which complicate relationships that to other people are much more simple. You think much on emotional matters and are capable of hasty and jumpy action with respect to them; the motivating force behind your impulses is rational rather than physical - you can be swept off your feet by an idea, an ideal, a theory, more quickly than by the physical beauty of an individual. This ideology of yours is likely to take quite unusual forms, and to lead to strange relationships among strange and out-of-the-way people, because of whom you gain the reputation for being an eccentric. You are highly idealistic and trusting. An idealistic, generalized, and humanistic quality colors all your emotions, and elevates them from the purely personal plane to a kind of abstracted passion.


Venus Sextile Neptune     Orb: 05°19'

You are romantic, charming, alluring - and impressionable. You are idealistic, always looking for perfection in your sweethearts and in the world and blissfully certain that even though it may elude you, it's there and will be found eventually. You are more trusting than erring mankind deserves. You can be fooled by one person and, in the twinkling of an eye, trust someone else who may be even less trustworthy. You are attracted to out-of-the-way people - waifs and strays, down-and-outers, and can get yourself into a lot of trouble by believing in crooks, frauds, sensationalists, adventurers, and out-right seducers. Unless you lead a pretty sheltered life you will be taken in and shaken down at some time or other. This is one of the supporting factors for material luck in life.


Venus Conjunct Pluto     Orb: 03°55'

You are extremely loyal to and solicitous of those you love, without a cloying sentimentality. Your values and thoughts center on love, which can easily become the hub of your life. Early in a relationship, you are apt to be jealous and possessive, but with time and experience this can be transformed into a higher, more mature type of attachment. You are willing to give your all to your beloved but demand the same in return. Your strongest desire is for an all-consuming love that will bring you satisfaction on all levels: emotional, physical and spiritual. With aspects to Mars or Neptune, there could be a preoccupation with or compulsive attitude toward sex.



Mars

Mars is the energy principle in the horoscope. His position by sign indicates the channels into which energy will naturally flow, and the uses to which energy will most easily be directed. It is the planet through which the activities of the Sun and the desires of the Moon express in action - through which your body and your mind react to the sense impressions of Mercury and the emotional impressions of Venus.


Mars in Capricorn

 You have practical control over your energies, which normally express themselves in a way that promotes your highest and most worldly aspirations. Controlled actions and speech come naturally to you; your vitality works well in the harness of the world as it is, and you can master details as well as the executive functions. You are tactful in a proud sort of way: you say the right thing without yielding your dignity or compromising with the truth as you see it. You are a born leader, having the first requisites of leadership: control of yourself and ability to take orders. This is one of the most favorable positions of Mars for worldly success, for you will rarely do anything that interferes with your security, or with security's broader manifestation, desire for power; and in one way or another, authority will accumulate in your hands if you don't block the free flow of your vitality with too much self confidence. You can afford to "sit loose in the saddle of fate" in the assurance that your mount will carry you where you want to go, and you should respect the steed by sparing whip and spur.


Mars Trine Jupiter     Orb: 02°21'

One of the indices of wealth, either inherited or made by your own efforts or both. This aspect frequently accompanies a rich marriage. Large ventures provide income and security. This is no scrimping and accumulating aspect, for materially you do things in the grand manner. You are something of a gambler, and willing to risk it all in a game of pitch and toss. You're pretty lucky, which may account for your willingness to try. Business hunches are sound. Your financial structure is solid, and you're able continuously to add to the superstructure. Congratulations!


Mars Square Saturn     Orb: 03°26'

This is an aspect of bad judgment and of that peculiarly insidious form of bad judgment which for years may appear to be "getting away with it" until the accumulated flaws in your life topple over the structure of your existence. If you have this aspect in your chart you will do well to sit down right now and make a thorough analysis of your life, your position, and your security, to see whether you are not operating on a major fallacy - a fallacy concerning either your own capabilities or the nature of the world in which you are working. Somewhere along the line you are making a fundamental mistake in estimating your own capacity, or the extent of your security.

 

This aspect will give you some sort of an inferiority complex to bring you under the dominance of older people. In general it will retard your development, making you indecisive and too willing to take advice and guidance. You are likely to be imposed upon - with periodic and depressing bursts of rebellious temperament which serve to wear you out without accomplishing anything else. You struggle for a decision, letting things mill around in your mind for a long time indeterminately without really concentrating on the facts and figures; and finally, out of sheer impatience you jump to a conclusion which may not have any relationship with the facts or with your mullings. The dominance of others, early responsibilities, and a sort of nervous rebellion toward them cause you difficulty in orienting yourself to the world. None of these things, of course, is fated, and the difficulty may be overcome by the assumption of independence in youth; by a philosophic attitude toward obligations which cannot be avoided, and an accompanying determination not to be imposed upon, or by a strict course of self-analysis, to get at the roots of your indecision - if necessary, to change your environment and your occupation in order to rout out those factors which' are psychologically distressing.

Finances will bear watching especially with respect to sudden losses due to bad judgment in business matters, and the emotional nature must be carefully guarded against the incursion of factors that make for psychic biases in human relations. In a woman's horoscope this usually means disagreement between husband and father, or husband and brother, or husband and sons - or all of them. You had to defy your father to get married at all, or throw off some obligation or tie which someone is trying to foist on you. Whether other factors do or do not exist, however, the Nemesis of erroneous judgment very temptingly presented, must be watched, and you must make every effort to analyze strictly what you do from a purely rational, logical, and unemotional viewpoint.


Mars Square Uranus     Orb: 06°31'

Temper! this is the aspect par excellence of an explosive and apparently uncontrollable temper which has to be curbed lest it run away with the whole personality. It is especially destructive when rages take command of your entire being. Anger will lead to serious emotional and psychic disturbances if you don't learn to curb it. This also tends to break down the structure of your plans, to present sudden and insurmountable obstacles, and to put a strata of quicksand under what you try to build. You must examine the foundations of your plans, your emotions, your human relationships very carefully to make sure that fundamental flaws in theory or practice are not jeopardizing them. You have an independent mind - too independent. Rash and tactless speech cause you much trouble. This position also carries with it a likelihood of accidents - stay out of airplanes, speed-boats, racing cars, and roller coasters. You love speed and are something of a daredevil - don't let it run away with you!



Jupiter

Jupiter is the feeler you have out in the world for opportunity. Through it the chances of a lifetime are passed along for consideration according to the basic nature of Sun and Moon. Jupiter's sign position indicates the places in which you will look for opportunity, the uses to which you wish to put it, and the capacity you have to react to and profit by it. Jupiter is ordinarily, and erroneously, called the Planet of Luck. It is "luck" in so far as it is the index of opportunity; but your luck depends less on what comes to you (Jupiter) than on what you do with it (the total personality). Opportunity appeals to you along lines laid down by your Jupiter. Jupiter is in the same sign with Venus, you interpret emotions in such a way as to turn them to your advantage; your feelings work harmoniously with the chances for progress that the world has to offer, and you won't often be found torn between love and a career.


Jupiter in Virgo

This position enables you to find opportunity in small beginnings, to take infinite pains with the little things that underlie success, and to plug along at a hopeless cause until - lo and behold! - it amounts to something. The effect you give is of care, caution, and routine perfection of details; and because of this, you are often able to win support from financial interests who value these traits and consider them good credit reference. You will generally be able to get backing for your business; you believe in putting all your eggs in one basket and watching the basket, with the result that you frequently hatch quite a brood. Spectacular or risky ventures don't appeal to you. If this position limits the imagination somewhat, it is also likely to get you farther in the long run than the dashing fellow who has been through several fortunes, or jobs, while you have studiously been cultivating your own garden and raising a fine crop of security and possessions.


Jupiter Square Neptune     Orb: 08°01'

You are a good deal of a visionary, idealistic in matters of philosophy and religion, with a kind of nebulous and unsound approach to abstract matters. You are capable of believing in things that never were on land or sea. A strata of mysticism underlies your thinking, a mist of unreality gets between your eyes and the outer world. Concrete evidence should be your constant aim, and you should forget the Pauline definition of faith as "the evidence of things unseen," for you are all too prone to believe and must cultivate skepticism. In material and personal matters this makes you pretty gullible, and, unless other indications show a marked degree of suspicion and shrewdness, this will get you into trouble and cause losses. Even with the most practical of indications you will have periodic fits of playing hunches or inspirations that will be costly. Stay away from seances, spiritualism, abstract philosophy, and religion, and pin your thinking, your emotions, and your business strictly down to earth.



Saturn

Saturn indicates the direction that will be taken in life by the self-preservative principle which, in its highest manifestation, ceases to be purely defensive and becomes ambitious and aspirational. Your defense, or attack, against the world is shown by the sign position of Saturn in the horoscope of birth.


Saturn in Aries

Your defense mechanism is directed toward self-defense and self-justification. The problems of living constitute to you a direct frontal attack of the world on your own personality, and the vindication of this steals the show from concerns of material progress and security. In its worst form this makes for narrowness, self-centeredness, touchiness, up to and including delusions of persecution. All the forces of your nature unite to defend the ego, which imagines itself badly used and needful of the maximum protection. From this can arise an almost unbelievable capacity to misunderstand others and a sort of chip-on-the-shoulder attitude which defies others to understand you. Carried upward and onward and broadened into spheres of usefulness, this makes you deeply desirous of self-betterment, capable of long, arduous mental work by which you succeed in making yourself the sort of person who will not require defending, but whose genuine traits will be the best defense against the world's attack. Not usually accompanied by introspection in any marked degree, this position, developed on its best side, makes you an aware, alert, profound personality. You eliminate the need for defending yourself by becoming an effective person when you have learned what every good general knows: that the best defense is an attack - and when you have marshaled your forces to attack life, instead of following your natural inclination to draw them around in a bristling ring of defiance.


Saturn Opposite Uranus     Orb: 09°57'

You are a pioneer and in some way an eccentric, independent in thought and action. Your independence doesn't work very strongly for your success, and you have to learn cooperation, tact, and diplomacy. In a horoscope that shows inventiveness, originality, and executive force, this increases those traits adding a note of quarrelsomeness, but none the less making you a strong and influential character. You are forceful in an electric sort of way and impress people even when they don't like your manner or your methods. In your horoscope the benefits of this position will not be felt. You have a peculiarly destructive temper - destructive to yourself chiefly - and must guard against the temperament that underlies your disposition.



Uranus

Uranus in a general way relates to the neuro-mentality, creative originality or individuality, and his position by sign in the horoscope tells the direction along which you will seek to express your most characteristic self in creative and original effort. With Uranus in the same sign with Venus, there is unusual reaction to emotional experience, highly idealistic though sensual, original ideas of love and human relations. With Uranus in the same sign with Jupiter, Uranus indicates opportunity, creates wealth and the means of getting it, along with inventiveness, daring, and executive ability.


Uranus in Virgo

Your originality is most likely to assert itself along lines of organization, routine, or social welfare. If you work along your most characteristic lines, it will be to make some contribution to social or business systems. You can be an efficiency expert in the service of capitalist industry and make your genius valuable along that line. Or your desire to serve may take a broader and more humanitarian form, and you may become a leader of social thought, applying your systematic genius to large problems of labor and social welfare. Your most characteristic expression will be found in connection with work, its methods and its efficiency; or in connection with social service and progress. You are more likely than not to be on the side of social change aiming at division of labor and the general good of society, and probably feel at home with the changes and even turbulence.


Uranus Sextile Neptune     Orb: 03°52'

This aspect occurs very seldom and when it does, amounts to a world condition and requires rather special factors in the individual horoscopes to make it show forth. In general, it is a supporting aspect of material benefit, helping to improve a good horoscope and lending some support even to a bad one. It inclines to a practical interest in the occult. It sharpens the perceptions. It gives an extraordinarily broad and capable mind. There is danger of mental confusion through occult studies. You may be dreamy, mystic, sensational. You are magnetic and charming to an extraordinary degree, but you may experience difficulty through the people you attract. President Franklin D. Roosevelt is representative of the race of giants which this aspect is capable of producing.


Uranus Conjunct Pluto     Orb: 05°16'

You will bring about important changes in your immediate surroundings or in the world at large. Depending on other aspects within the horoscope, this revolutionary spirit will either bring good to more people or will hurl them into turmoil. You can be difficult to live with, because your convictions are so strong that you don't like to listen to the opinions and advice of others.



Neptune

Neptune relates to the deepest wells of the subconscious, inherited mentality and spirituality, indicating what you take deeply for granted in life. With Neptune in the same sign as Sun, it indicates that intuitions and hunches - or delusions - dominate; a need for rigidly holding to reality. With Neptune in the same sign with Mercury, there are sharp sense perceptions, a sensitive mind (and perhaps creative), a quivering intensity of inaction to sense experience.


Neptune in Scorpio

The people and nations of the world are aware of the awesome, death-dealing possibilities of nuclear war. Atomic-powered submarines in the depths of the seas play their role in the struggle for power. Those born under this influence want to plumb the secrets of the Universe. The mystery of life and death is theirs to fathom. They are enthralled by occult studies, chemistry, invention. Neptune in this position intensifies the emotional nature. There is a tendency to be secretive and mystical. Gain through inheritance is possible, as well as financial ties with others; partnership, and marriage. There is a great possibility of possessing marked extra-sensory perception. Caution must be exercised regarding drugs and strong beverages, and dabbling in spiritualism. The sex instincts must be channeled in the right direction since the craving for sensation is very strong. You have recuperative powers and a desire for reforms.


Neptune Sextile Pluto     Orb: 01°24'

The ideas that were instilled in you by your parents, church and society will undergo changes throughout your life until your religious and philosophical views are distinctly your own. This type of creative adaptability makes you able to forgo selfish concerns and direct your efforts toward the betterment of all. Artistic and/or psychic talents are possible.



Pluto

Pluto relates to the ability to let go of things, to get rid of irrelevant prejudices and outdated habit patterns. It relates to subconscious feelings, inner urges and repressed emotions. A strong Pluto gives the ability to see the hidden side of life, and thus bestows power on the native - power which can be used for good or ill. In the same sign as Venus, Pluto gives a strong love nature, with a tendency to be possessive and self-indulgent. In the same sign as Jupiter, Pluto produces an inquisitive nature with a desire to understand the hidden side of life.


Pluto in Virgo

Your ability to bring order out of chaos is your strongest talent, and it allows you to find ultimate meaning in conditions and ideas which others consider hopeless. Your approach is initially intellectual - your curiosity spurs you on to gain as much knowledge as possible - but your main concern is the application of this knowledge. Ideas have value only insofar as they can be used to improve the quality of life. Your forte is the development of a concept, its practical application and its assimilation into everyday affairs.






 

Current Transits

 


The current transits are calculated exactly for the date shown. Lewi wrote text only for the aspects that he considered to be the most significant and only those are shown in this report. The dates shown only represent the times when the aspect is exact; its influence is felt for weeks, months, and sometimes even years around this time. A planet will often make the same aspect several times in one year before it leaves that area of the zodiac and moves on. This is due to the planet appearing to go backward or retrograde for a period of time and crossing and recrossing the aspect point. When this happens the effect of the aspect can be spread out over a considerable time and in this report the aspect and text will be printed for each time it becomes exact, although this series of aspects represents only one pass through this phase of its cycle. Remember that each transiting aspect is part of its over-all cycle and indicates a change of direction as well as an event. The cycle for a planet is the time it takes that planet to travel the entire 360° of the zodiac, beginning at the point where the planet is found at birth (the conjunction point), moving to the 90° point which Lewi calls the "lower square", then moving to the opposition or 180° point. Then it begins to move back towards the starting point, at the 270° point, or 90° away from the starting point, the planet is at its "upper square", and then it returns to the conjunction point where a new cycle is begun. Lewi will occasionally refer to these points in his text by name. In general all transits, whether of a planet to its own place or of one planet to another, mark cycles of  growth beginning at the conjunction point, growing through the first square, fully grown at the opposition point, beginning to recede at the second or upper square, and finally starting a new cycle as it reaches the conjunction point again.

How long any aspect will be in effect is determined by the speed of the planet making the aspect (the first planet , i.e. Mars in Mars Opposite Sun). One Mars cycle is about two or two and one-half years and so a Mars aspect will last about 20 to 30 days. Jupiter takes about 12 years for its cycle and so its aspects could last around 4 months, while Saturn with a 29 year cycle will last 9 months or even more if it turns retrograde. Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto are all long range aspects and usually represent a time of 2 or more years. While Saturn and the outer planets indicate long range influences in your life, Mars aspects will identify important months and Jupiter will identify important years. Not every occurrence of these will be of striking importance. But within a larger Saturn cycle or Uranus period of great importance, these briefer influences will be found to act as the second or minute hand of the clock of destiny, as Saturn, or Uranus, or both, act as the hour hand.


Jul 19, 2002  -  Mars Square Sun

Domestic matters are important. This transit frequently times a move from one house (or town or locality) to another, or some important decision in the private life. New starts work out if well considered and unmotivated by temperament. Social activity is increased; you have lots of friends around you. This is a good time to begin new ventures for quick completion, ventures which have a bearing on your longer-range plans. This is a good time to clean house, redecorate, etc. The home is likely to be upset, and it's wise to make the upsetting literal and to some good purpose, instead of figurative and quarrelsome.


Aug 4, 2002  -  Mars Square Mercury

Quick speech, thought and actions make strife and trouble. Be silent, cagey, noncommittal. The quick retort makes trouble. Wrong decisions often come in one of these periods, which recur about every six months and need careful watching. Sometimes the most casual remark results in a lasting grudge. Mountains (of trouble) grow out of molehills (of speech). It is best to be silent.


Aug 19, 2002  -  Jupiter Square Sun

Publicity and public affairs favor you and tend to go to your head. You may get careless with money, extend credit too far, and thus lay the basis for later regrets. Restraint brings you gain through important people. You profit by pull, if you are willing to use it as a stepping stone to work and honest effort. Avoid over-extension of ego and authority; be content to take a back seat. Use opportunities, not to promote fame or prestige, but to build foundations on which these may rest in the future. Protect health from excess; some danger of physical setback through self indulgence or overwork. Raises of salary come automatically, if at all, and you gain little by demanding. Rest assured that you will get no more and no less than you deserve, and that the intrusion of the ego is more likely to bring disappointment than favors.


Aug 20, 2002  -  Mars Conjunct Moon

The urge to express yourself induces you to express your most temperamental self. In emotional people this marks, as it recurs every two years, some tension and inner turmoil directly related to the inner self that they are trying to express in the world. It leads to strife, unconventionality, inner discord which transfers itself to the outer world. It is an excellent time for a vacation or for lying low and forcing no issues. Frequently the transit marks ill health for yourself or your mate. The worst of the ego nature comes out; all the complexes and suppressed desires rush to the surface and need to be put back in their place. The best result of this transit is awakened and increased self-knowledge. One of these periods in the life check-up will frequently mark a major emotional experience that you have never forgotten. The inner nature is brought rudely into contact with realities, and false notions are stripped away, frequently with great personal upheaval.


Aug 31, 2002  -  Mars Conjunct Jupiter

Opportunities abound, and your energies are up to them. Optimism runs high, and you can be made to color, and perhaps prophesy, the life for a long time. Work is abundant and gratifying; you are popular and lucky. Be careful not to waste opportunities through trying to do too much at once; don't spend too much money, either, but make a point of saving. This ought to be a period of good income, which tends to make you openhanded and generous, perhaps to a fault. Keep your eyes and ears open; some of the best forward pushes of your life will come in these periods when circumstances combine to give you the rewards of work done in the past and to open up new doors for the future.


Sep 26, 2002  -  Mars Conjunct Venus

Heightened emotions make romance, which is favored if you keep it within the bounds of reason and convention. Impulsive acts, with or without a future, are frequently found in these recurrent periods. Glamour surrounds your approach to life; you are susceptible to the opposite sex and they to you. This transit frequently indicates the time of marriage within the period of a longer transit that favors it. If the era of romance is past, this indicates an active and on the whole satisfactory social period; business progress; extravagance with money; a sudden urge to go places and do things - and perhaps a chafing at the marital bit which should not be taken too seriously. Energies work through emotions and passions, which in turn work overtime and should be gently disciplined though not entirely submerged. Often, for obvious reasons, this transit indicates the conception of children, especially if it occurs while Mars is conjunct your sun or conjunct your Mars.


Oct 2, 2002  -  Mars Conjunct Pluto

This transit represents a strong alliance of similar energies. A sense of mystery pervades otherwise mundane events. Agressiveness peaks. Care should be taken to secure your holding, protect your possessions and yourself, for this transit includes some vulnerability to the principle of redistribution. You might be knocked off your throne for no apparent reason. You could emerge from this period thinking the universe is a quixotic, capricious place, or you could take events as keynotes of respect for structure and self-care.

Sexual energy will be high. You could find yourself surrounded by irresistible people, and the tendency is to think that the veil between you and them is much thinner than it really is. Take time to treat people respectfully. Take this opportunity to de-objectify your world view and adopt a more service-oriented demeanor. Depending on how successfully you have mastered life's trials, this could be a time of "icing on the cake". Just make sure the recipients of your "death blows" are the nasty loitering ghosts in your own psyche, not the people on the street whom these ghosts resemble.


Oct 11, 2002  -  Mars Conjunct Uranus

Expect temperament, haste and anxiety. Your nerves require watching. These problems can lead to illness from fatigue and nervous exhaustion. You risk accidents (literal and figurative!) from excess speed and lack of care over details. Watch temperament. Accidents in the realm of human relations result from overemphasizing the ego and minimizing the other fellow's viewpoint. Inventiveness abounds; originality is in the saddle; but you can't get your best and truest ideas over to any good advantage, and simply make trouble if you "try too hard." Store them up for a later time when you express them better and when other people listen to you more readily. Look out for machinery, travel, electricity; avoid danger, be careful getting on and off trains and crossing streets.


Oct 21, 2002  -  Mars Square Mars

This transit indicates a period of hard work and abundant energies, which causes no trouble unless major disruptive influences are in force. There is a slight tendency to talk too much, boast and be arrogant, but the swiftness of the pace generally carries you through without major trouble. Look ahead, work toward and plan for some major development to take place coincident with the conjunction of the transiting Mars with your birth Mars which will occur around Mar 10, 2003. Frequently this transit marks the busy start of something that matures at the next Mars conjunction to Mars and should be viewed with that in mind. Protect health and nerves from excess; be objective and detached; and let reason rule the emotions.


Dec 7, 2002  -  Mars Conjunct Sun

The new starts of your Mars conjunct Mars are helped greatly with this aspect; your energies work smoothly, starting with this aspect and gaining momentum as Mars conjuct Mars on Mar 10, 2003 is reached.

Your danger at this time is temperament, temper, a tendency to feel your own importance too strongly and to get into trouble because of it. Also, unless you have the endurance of an ox, you will tire yourself as Mars transits your Sun, and fatigue is likely to lead to strife, breaks and separations. Translate your energies to work, activity, detached application to a job or task; and don't get touchy or allow personal reactions to interfere with efficiency. This can be a romantic period; your magnetism is high, and you are likely to get what you want if you moderate your demands and use more persuasion and less insistence than you want to. Intuitions can go wrong, and you need the balance of strict mental discipline to bring out the best of your energies. However, it is an excellent time to go after what you want, and marks periods of important decisions and moves.


Dec 23, 2002  -  Mars Conjunct Mercury

Sharp wits help if you use them right, hinder if you get smart-alecky with them. Snap judgments, quick speech, sharp retorts and anger make trouble. On the other hand, keen perceptions give you the edge on others; you express yourself readily and to good effect if you keep emotions and personalities out. Sensory perceptions and powers of observation are increased. Creative powers mount; rapidity of mental processes enables you to do more than usual. Mental fatigue can result; budget time for relaxation and sleep. Any tendency to insomnia is emphasized; also to temperament, temper and self-will. This is a good time to sell, bad time to buy. Business is active, judgment shrewd. Sign no papers, don't commit yourself permanently; the picture changes too rapidly. Avoid strife, especially over trifles. Distrust intuitions; put deep trust in hard work and pure reason.


Dec 24, 2002  -  Pluto Square Venus

Your desire for love and its physical expression is strong, but you may not fad it easy to express this need. A more compulsive or obsessive quality marks your relationships and, instead of looking for someone whose values are similar to or compatible with your own, you may attract someone whose values clash with yours. There is the possibility of attracting a member of the underworld set, someone who is already attached or someone who is looking only for sex, rather than a person capable of making both the sacrifices and the commitment you deem necessary. Keep your standards high now, so you can come upon a love which fulfills alt your needs. If you aren't already in love, you may be tempted to start a relationship with anyone just so you won't be alone. Avoid this; aim for an attachment based on love, trust, and a genuine relationship which will deepen, not disintegrate, with time.


Jan 6, 2003  -  Mars Conjunct Neptune

Super intuition gives you uncanny insight into motives and methods of other people, but not always into your own. Practice self-analysis. You swiftly feel your creative power, of which you can make good use. Beware sensationalism, sentimentality, self-indulgence; fight subconscious urges, suppressed desires, and make your inner ego work for you along constructive lines. This is an excellent period for creative work, for impersonal use of magnetism for business ends and aims and for social popularity. You have glamour that attracts others: be sure it attracts the right kind of people and for the right reasons. The Old Adam rears his head and may require discipline.


Jan 8, 2003  -  Mars Square Moon

Fatigue leads to strife, so relax. There may be illness and you may lose your grip on things. Refuse to take yourself too seriously. Go to bed and rest instead of brooding; you'll avoid strife and trouble thereby. Force no issues. Energy may find its expression in some glamorous romance which may or may not be important, depending on other long-range transits in force at the same time with this.


Jan 19, 2003  -  Mars Square Jupiter

This will generally not amount to much, but periods of loss through risks or gambles or through over-enthusiasm or bad business judgment are frequently marked by it. The outlook is too enthusiastic to let sober reason dominate; but this generally brings nothing but minor extravagance. This transit might mark some major material setback due to a combination of bad judgment and bad luck.


Feb 14, 2003  -  Mars Square Venus

Social and romantic glamour leads to excesses, sometimes to strife, quarrels, separations. Minor loves and friendships break up, but important relations are merely strained; and indeed this frequently adds glamour to a deep love, intensifying its beauty. A break here, unless contributed to by some more important transit, is a sure index that the feeling wasn't very deep or important anyway. Avoid excess spending and stay away from temptation if you're interested in sticking to the conventions.


Feb 20, 2003  -  Mars Square Pluto

This transit represents a strong alliance of similar energies. A sense of mystery pervades otherwise mundane events. Agressiveness peaks. Care should be taken to secure your holding, protect your possessions and yourself, for this transit includes some vulnerability to the principle of redistribution. You might be knocked off your throne for no apparent reason. You could emerge from this period thinking the universe is a quixotic, capricious place, or you could take events as keynotes of respect for structure and self-care.

Sexual energy will be high. You could find yourself surrounded by irresistible people, and the tendency is to think that the veil between you and them is much thinner than it really is. Take time to treat people respectfully. Take this opportunity to de-objectify your world view and adopt a more service-oriented demeanor. Depending on how successfully you have mastered life's trials, this could be a time of "icing on the cake". Just make sure the recipients of your "death blows" are the nasty loitering ghosts in your own psyche, not the people on the street whom these ghosts resemble.


Feb 28, 2003  -  Mars Square Uranus

This transit is not usually important except as a marker of temperament and minor strife. But at one of these periods some major break due to temperament - some sudden shift in the pace and direction of the life - is likely to occur. The individuality is suddenly awakened to broader horizons, greater worlds to conquer, and determined to shake off the shackles of restraint. In undisciplined persons this will mark periodic temperament, rages, rebellion and strife; also accidents and setbacks due to lack of nervous coordination. In normally disciplined individuals all but one or two of these periods should be comparatively inconspicuous. But the one or two may be memorable and probably nothing to be proud of.


Mar 10, 2003  -  Mars Conjunct Mars

This is a period when new starts should be made, new plans put into execution, new ideas promoted. Energies work along their most characteristic line and can be utilized to excellent advantage. Control natural impulses if you have any that get you into trouble, because now is the time when you are "being yourself" and it is your business to be your best self, not your worst. You are starting a two year cycle and should establish the line you want to continue on for the next twenty four months. Seek new contacts, new avenues of self-expression, new channels into which to direct talents and energies. Beware lest anger and temper - letting go because you're feeling your oats - interfere with your best development. In your life check-up you will find that these recurrent two year periods marked with great consistency periods of important decisions, developments, activity and changes.


Apr 6, 2003  -  Uranus Opposite Jupiter

This is a period of opportunity, with a good chance that it will be misused. Conflict of big ideas within yourself may block progress temporarily, but can result in eventual clarification. There is some strife with others, and a tendency to stand in your own light through stubborn if quiet adherence to some wrong course of thought or action. If you are an adventurous soul, gambling of one kind or another is a menace: "live dangerously" seems sensible even when it isn't bringing the desired results. Creativeness runs high, but may be ill directed. Material matters may suffer because distractions seem more important than routine. You may have heavy material loss either through neglect, over-optimism, speculative ventures ill-timed and over-stayed. This is an aspect of anarchy, revolt against what is, intellectual rather than violent, but far-reaching in its consequences to the individual and to as much of society as he influences.


Apr 28, 2003  -  Mars Square Sun

Domestic matters are important. This transit frequently times a move from one house (or town or locality) to another, or some important decision in the private life. New starts work out if well considered and unmotivated by temperament. Social activity is increased; you have lots of friends around you. This is a good time to begin new ventures for quick completion, ventures which have a bearing on your longer-range plans. This is a good time to clean house, redecorate, etc. The home is likely to be upset, and it's wise to make the upsetting literal and to some good purpose, instead of figurative and quarrelsome.


May 15, 2003  -  Mars Square Mercury

Quick speech, thought and actions make strife and trouble. Be silent, cagey, noncommittal. The quick retort makes trouble. Wrong decisions often come in one of these periods, which recur about every six months and need careful watching. Sometimes the most casual remark results in a lasting grudge. Mountains (of trouble) grow out of molehills (of speech). It is best to be silent.


Jun 4, 2003  -  Mars Opposite Moon

Fatigue leads to strife, so relax. There may be illness and you may lose your grip on things. Refuse to take yourself too seriously. Go to bed and rest instead of brooding; you'll avoid strife and trouble thereby. Force no issues. Energy may find its expression in some glamorous romance which may or may not be important, depending on other long-range transits in force at the same time with this.


Jun 20, 2003  -  Mars Opposite Jupiter

This will generally not amount to much, but periods of loss through risks or gambles or through over-enthusiasm or bad business judgment are frequently marked by it. The outlook is too enthusiastic to let sober reason dominate; but this generally brings nothing but minor extravagance. This transit might mark some major material setback due to a combination of bad judgment and bad luck.

Your desire for love and its physical expression is strong, but you may not fad it easy to express this need. A more compulsive or obsessive quality marks your relationships and, instead of looking for someone whose values are similar to or compatible with your own, you may attract someone whose values clash with yours. There is the possibility of attracting a member of the underworld set, someone who is already attached or someone who is looking only for sex, rather than a person capable of making both the sacrifices and the commitment you deem necessary. Keep your standards high now, so you can come upon a love which fulfills alt your needs. If you aren't already in love, you may be tempted to start a relationship with anyone just so you won't be alone. Avoid this; aim for an attachment based on love, trust, and a genuine relationship which will deepen, not disintegrate, with time.

Individualism and energy run into obstacles, events conspire to increase responsibility, which you will at first take as a personal affront and rebel against. This won't do you any good unless you are utterly conscienceless and willing to throw obligations to the wind. A revision of attitudes is required: you have to bring your personal urges into line with realities, and can do it in a variety of ways. Any of these will be all right, so long as it doesn't create a rebellious spirit in you. Temperament must be forced into the pattern of life as it is and the more you have to force it, the more you can be sure that it needs to be forced.


Jul 30, 2003  -  Saturn Square Saturn

This lower (waxing) square comes seven years after the Saturn-Saturn conjunction and should mark a period of achievement in line with the lessons learned seven years earlier. The choices made then, if wise, have led to accomplishment; a minor cycle has been completed; and you should be moving forward smoothly toward a point of maximum attainment to be reached in about another seven years. Some shift in method - but no change in basic direction - may be indicated here. Changes, both in the material world and in thinking, are important and should be related carefully to basic goals. Some temperament needs fighting down; the personal tends to intrude over the practical and must be put firmly back in its place.


Jul 31, 2003  -  Jupiter Conjunct Moon

You feel new self-assurance and are able to solve, within yourself, important problems that have troubled you. Little may change in the external world around you, but your attitude toward it changes. You may not be able to control what happens to you, but you achieve new dominion over your viewpoint and in this way become master of situations and of yourself. Good health contributes to good spirits and a general sense of well-being. Self-reliance and self-sufficiency are your big assets here, through which you "find yourself" significant. Allow your eyes to turn inward; define aims and desires; discover what you want from the world, in the assurance that it is to be found less in things than in your approach to them. May accompany a real "conversion of spirit" based on swift insight into yourself, and may thus mark a point at which you turn away from false values to true ones and start a new life, richer and happier because based on high evaluation of essentials.
