Introduction

 

"Why, man, he doth bestride the narrow world

Like a Colussus; and we petty men

Walk under his huge legs, and peep about

To find ourselves dishonorable graves.

Men at some time are masters of their fates:

The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars,

But in ourselves, that we are underlings."

Julius Caesar (1599) act 1, scene 2 Shakespeare

 

The subject of Fate or Destiny has triggered many a philosophical argument. What is destiny? Are the details of our lives pre-destined? How much free will do we really have? These are imponderable questions. This report does not offer the answers. Rather it gives us some signposts to help us on our life journey.

 

When meteorologists forecast the weather we understand that they are not telling us how to live our lives. Rather they are giving us information that may help us make our own decisions. As far as the weather is concerned our major decisions are whether or not to dress warmly or to take an umbrella. The astrological system of Transits is offering us much the same information. It is giving us an indication of the emotional and intellectual weather of our lives. It is up to us to decide our own destiny.

 

When using this set of interpretations, please bear in mind that, inevitably, every chart will contain some contradictory influences, and as a result certain interpretations of different items in the same chart may seem difficult to reconcile. However, this may still be an accurate reflection of what is happening to the individual whose transits are being interpreted, as people do experience conflicting desires, events and circumstances in their lives. It is the responsibility of the astrologer to synthesise these apparent contradictions in order to present a cohesive and realistic interpretation of the dilemmas of the chart.

 

Each entry in this report relates to an astrological event that affects the natal chart for this individual. The entries are sorted by the exact date on which each event occurs, and the period of time around this date during which the events are considered to be in effect is shown in parentheses on the same line. Note that due to occasional retrograde motion of some planets, some events may be exact on two or more dates, and in this case all such dates are listed on the same line. Also, any events which are not exact within the report period, but whose period of effectiveness overlaps with the report period are included.

 

From 1 Jul 2008 until 1 Jul 2009

 

 

4 Jul 2008    (26 Jun 2008 to 11 Jul 2008)

 

TRANSITING JUPITER SQUARE RADIX JUPITER - This can be a time when you forget to look before you leap. You feel confident of achieving your goals but may not exercise the appropriate caution. This can also be a time when you feel as though you are living life in the fast lane. It is important to slow down and use some old-fashioned common sense before you take up opportunities that are coming your way right now.

 

 

21 Jul 2008    (27 Jun 2008 to 10 Aug 2008)

 

TRANSITING CHIRON TRINE RADIX NORTH NODE - Opportunities come but once in a lifetime, or so the saying goes. Now is the time for you to be open to opportunities to discover and express your special gifts. If you believe that everyone has a purpose in this world then now is your chance to discover yours and make the most of the doors that open. It is also possible that you are given the chance to mend broken bridges during this time, which will in turn pave the way for a brighter future.

 

 

15 Jul 2008    (7 Jul 2008 to 23 Jul 2008)

 

TRANSITING JUPITER SQUARE RADIX MOON - Watch out for indulgence during this transit. You are likely to go all-out in an effort to achieve comfort and pleasure. The trouble is that you lack the ability to balance your need for emotional security with your enthusiasm for the pleasures of life. The result can be a lackadaisical approach to life which  irritates others and gets you nowhere fast. Tensions may surface on the domestic scene.

 

 

30 Jul 2008    (9 Jul 2008 to 18 Aug 2008)

 

TRANSITING CHIRON TRINE RADIX URANUS - Now is the time to take a chance and explore new and unusual experiences, to tackle life's problems in an inventive and original way. You are eager to branch out and express your true potential with your sights keenly focussed on the future rather than the past. You feel alive and energetic, prepared to venture forth into unexplored territories, particularly those involving metaphysics, science and computers. And chances are that you will be presented with plenty of opportunities. You may even discover healing or teaching talents that you never knew existed. Make the most of these energies while they last, although do not throw caution entirely to the wind.

 

 

25 Jul 2008    (17 Jul 2008 to 3 Aug 2008)

 

TRANSITING JUPITER SQUARE RADIX CHIRON - This is a time during which you are forced to face painful memories, which have haunted you in times gone by, and move into areas that are linked straight to your heart. One person, an important teacher or healer, may enter your life to help you grow in ways you never thought possible. It is also possible that you are forced to face your fears of inadequacy or past inhibitions in order to truly express your own teaching and healing talents. Either way the path may be painful, but the result will be wisdom gained through experience.

 

 

18 Aug 2008    (30 Jul 2008 to 8 Sep 2008)

 

TRANSITING CHIRON TRINE RADIX JUPITER - You are likely to take a new and significant path in your life, particularly if you are open to new possibilities. Now is the time to take a risk and explore new horizons, as these will lead you closer to your true purpose. This could be literally travelling abroad, or more symbolically through studies or teaching. It is also possible that religion features during this time presenting you with new and enlightening spiritual insights.

 

 

10 Aug 2008    (31 Jul 2008 to 26 Aug 2008)

 

TRANSITING JUPITER OPPOSITION RADIX SUN - Success is within your reach during this phase. You are reaching a culmination point in your life whereby you can achieve your goals and make a positive contribution to society. You want to expand your horizons and have the ability to do so. Financial and spiritual riches are within your grasp through your own efforts and through benefactors. You are keen to make the most of the doors that are opening. However, you need to be wary of a lack of discretion and restraint. It could be your own lack of discretion or it could be someone else in your life. Either way excesses are to be avoided. Currently you feel tempted to pursue your goals no matter what the cost to yourself or your loved ones. It would be better if you could use this time to pursue your own goals, waiting patiently for things to run their own course. Opportunities will come and you will be able to take advantage of them in good time, without having to force matters. Opportunities could be connected to a religious, philosophical or philanthropic activity, or to travel or study plans. The lesson is to show temperance for the time being. "All good things come to those who wait," could be a timely motto.

 

 

14 Aug 2008    (5 Aug 2008 to 22 Aug 2008)

 

TRANSITING SATURN CONJUNCTION RADIX MARS - Delays and frustration mark this stage of life. The extent to which you experience these obstacles depends largely on recent past events. If you have been working steadily towards a certain goal, making sure that you lead a balanced life, then you are likely to use this time to further your goals. You continue to work steadily and patiently to achieve success - whatever that represents for you. You understand that "all good things come to those who wait" and are willing to continue to work through any obstacles slowly and surely. Right now you have great determination and drive to achieve your goals despite the apparent obstacles However, if you have been leading an unbalanced life, or have not tackled past projects with integrity then you may find this period quite difficult. Other people now clearly tell you the consequences of your actions and you may not like the results. This could involve a lack of cooperation from friends, colleagues and loved one or it could mean that you experience serious setbacks in your personal and/or work projects. You may feel that you are beating your head against a brick wall. You are currently required to expend a lot of energy in an effort to push forward with your ambitions. You must be careful not to overdo it. With wise and considered action you can overcome any obstacles and achieve much.

 

 

19 Sep 2008 and 29 Nov 2008    (27 Aug 2008 to 21 Dec 2008)

 

TRANSITING CHIRON TRINE RADIX MOON - Opportunities exist for healing past emotional wounds. This may happen in dreams or daydreams, or through the appearance of a special teacher or healer. You are particularly insightful and compassionate, and your loved ones find your wisdom comforting.

 

 

23 Oct 2008 and 11 Nov 2008    (28 Aug 2008 to 3 Jan 2009)

 

TRANSITING NEPTUNE OPPOSITION RADIX VENUS - Your primary relationships are confusing right now. One or more of your friends, family or work colleagues are acting in a strange manner. Perhaps your spouse wants more romance and fun and you feel unable to response, or perhaps your spouse is changing and you are unsure of the direction of your marriage. On the other hand maybe someone at work is acting in a confusing manner and you are unable to make clear career plans. Right now you are sensitive to the innuendoes of relationships, but do not have the clarity to assess them logically. This lack of clarity can leave you feeling insecure in your personal and/or work associations. You may even feel somewhat disillusioned with one or more important people in your life. As much as you would like to fix the problem, it can be difficult trying to do so when you are not sure of the cause. Although you may be suffering, emotionally and/or physically, it is best to bide your time. The fog will clear and light will be shed on the situation. Once this phase has ended you will have a clearer idea of how to proceed. Once again you will be able to make plans with a better understanding of those closest to you. Your finances may also be under a cloud during this phase. You would be well advised to be cautious in any financial investments, because the rewards may not be what they promised to be.

 

 

11 Oct 2008 and 12 Jan 2009    (14 Sep 2008 to 4 Feb 2009)

 

TRANSITING URANUS SQUARE RADIX SOUTH NODE - Fate is forcing a change of direction. The path which you thought you were treading in life takes a few unexpected twists and turns during this period. It is a process of discarding old habits in favour of new experiences, in particular metaphysical experiences. Your change of path could involve metaphysics, science, environmental interests or technology. A new and unusual group of people may cross your path sparking new interests, or perhaps you will meet an unusual person to accompany you along life's path. You may literally find yourself cleaning out the cupboards, or perhaps only metaphorically. Whatever the changes, they are unpredictable, exciting and perhaps a little disconcerting.

 

 

11 Oct 2008 and 12 Jan 2009    (14 Sep 2008 to 4 Feb 2009)

6 Oct 2008    (20 Sep 2008 to 16 Oct 2008)

 

TRANSITING JUPITER OPPOSITION RADIX SUN - Success is within your reach during this phase. You are reaching a culmination point in your life whereby you can achieve your goals and make a positive contribution to society. You want to expand your horizons and have the ability to do so. Financial and spiritual riches are within your grasp through your own efforts and through benefactors. You are keen to make the most of the doors that are opening.

26 Oct 2008 and 28 Dec 2008    (26 Sep 2008 to 25 Jan 2009)

 

TRANSITING URANUS SQUARE RADIX URANUS - This transit occurs around the age of  20-21 and again in your early to mid-60s. Hence its connection with young adulthood and the age of retirement. It usually brings a desire for freedom, an urge to break away from authority.  If you are in the younger age group, this transit can see a more rebellious energy as you seek greener pastures. Your need for self expression may take over your common sense and you need to beware of taking risks without appropriate discrimination. The more your individual freedom has been oppressed by authority figures, the greater your desire to break free. However, you would do well to strike the right balance between developing your own individual rights and considering the rights of others.  If you are in the older age group this can time can manifest itself more as a need to break free of your responsibilities and to brighten up life. If you have fallen into a rut in the past, you will now feel the urge to break out. Perhaps you feel that you have given a considerable amount of time and energy to your family, work and society. Now it is your turn. For this reason you will consider many new and exciting ventures such as starting again in a different city or country, moving home, or retiring from your life's work. While this is the ideal time to make a move, it is also important that you consider your options carefully.

 

 

25 Oct 2008    (28 Sep 2008 to 20 Nov 2008)

 

TRANSITING CHIRON TRINE RADIX CHIRON - Doors open enabling you to express your true purpose in life. You may be surprised by the opportunities that arise, but you would do well to make the most of your good fortune. You might also have to overcome some of your fears in order to fully embrace your circumstances, which may be linked with teaching or healing.

 

 

21 Oct 2008    (13 Oct 2008 to 29 Oct 2008)

 

TRANSITING JUPITER SQUARE RADIX CHIRON - This is a time during which you are forced to face painful memories, which have haunted you in times gone by, and move into areas that are linked straight to your heart. One person, an important teacher or healer, may enter your life to help you grow in ways you never thought possible. It is also possible that you are forced to face your fears of inadequacy or past inhibitions in order to truly express your own teaching and healing talents. Either way the path may be painful, but the result will be wisdom gained through experience.

 

 

31 Oct 2008    (23 Oct 2008 to 6 Nov 2008)

 

TRANSITING JUPITER SQUARE RADIX MOON - Watch out for indulgence during this transit. You are likely to go all-out in an effort to achieve comfort and pleasure. The trouble is that you lack the ability to balance your need for emotional security with your enthusiasm for the pleasures of life. The result can be a lackadaisical approach to life which  irritates others and gets you nowhere fast. Tensions may surface on the domestic scene.

 

 

6 Nov 2008    (27 Oct 2008 to 19 Nov 2008)

 

TRANSITING SATURN SQUARE RADIX URANUS - This can be a time of great tension. You experience less of the tension if you have built your life on a firm foundation with a healthy balance between responsibility and the need for freedom and change. However, if you have allowed your life to become stuck in tired, rigid routines, this period can be very upsetting. Any area of your life that has become stuck in a rut is open to challenge and you will find it best to face the challenge of changing old patterns and embrace new and exciting plans.

 

 

11 Nov 2008    (31 Oct 2008 to 25 Nov 2008)

 

TRANSITING SATURN SQUARE RADIX SOUTH NODE - The people who enter your life now are likely to play a significant role in shaping your destiny. For instance perhaps you are a youngster and a sibling is born during this period. This sibling is likely to make an important contribution. Alternatively perhaps you meet someone special during this phase. You may marry this person. Decisions that you make during this time are also likely to significantly affect the next phase of your life. You may decide to move neighbourhoods or build a new home in your own neighbourhood. Whoever you meet and whatever you decide is likely to affect you for at least fourteen years. You may also feel compelled to say "goodbye" to friends or leave employment. In other words you are faced with choices about eliminating obstacles on your life's path in order that you may better fulfil your purpose in the future. You may find this frightening, but situations arise now that force you to face your fears. This transit is part of the assimilation and elimination process required to help us further our purpose in this world. You may also be excited by this process. It is similar to the process that migrants experience when they leave one country. There is the sadness of leaving all that is familiar - loved ones, home, security etc. However, there is also the excitement about a future that could hold rich rewards and exciting new experiences. If you believe in the process of reincarnation and karma, then you will know that this is a very karmic period. It offers you the chance to put to right past wrongs and to move forward with your life purpose.

9 Nov 2008    (2 Nov 2008 to 15 Nov 2008)

 

TRANSITING JUPITER SQUARE RADIX JUPITER - This can be a time when you forget to look before you leap. You feel confident of achieving your goals but may not exercise the appropriate caution. This can also be a time when you feel as though you are living life in the fast lane. It is important to slow down and use some old-fashioned common sense before you take up opportunities that are coming your way right now.

 

 

10 Dec 2008    (6 Dec 2008 to 15 Dec 2008)

 

TRANSITING JUPITER SQUARE RADIX MIDHEAVEN - You now feel the urge to get ahead in life, particularly in the areas of work and social status. The path to professional success may not be smooth, however, as you may go over the top in your efforts to climb the social or professional ladder. You may feel like you having some difficulty juggling home and work commitments and a few decisions are required.

 

 

28 Dec 2008    (9 Dec 2008 to 13 Jan 2009)

 

TRANSITING CHIRON TRINE RADIX JUPITER - You are likely to take a new and significant path in your life, particularly if you are open to new possibilities. Now is the time to take a risk and explore new horizons, as these will lead you closer to your true purpose. This could be literally travelling abroad, or more symbolically through studies or teaching. It is also possible that religion features during this time presenting you with new and enlightening spiritual insights.

 

 

21 Dec 2008    (16 Dec 2008 to 25 Dec 2008)

 

TRANSITING JUPITER OPPOSITION RADIX SATURN - At the moment it seems as if obstacles are standing in your path, making life seem like hard work. The trouble is that you are currently feeling the need to expand your horizons, but are finding it difficult to find the right way forward. Perhaps you are going overboard in your efforts to get your own way, failing to negotiate with others who depend on you or work with you. Or perhaps others are truly blocking your path. Either way now is the time to carefully consider the consequences of any actions. You need to make sure that you build on the positives in your life, paying attention to the building blocks that support your success.  Otherwise you are likely to alienate those who would usually support you and discard the very things that have sustained you. Slowly, and with patience, you can incorporate the changes that you want, although compromise may be to your benefit, as well as your colleagues, friends and loved ones..

 

 

13 Jan 2009    (28 Dec 2008 to 27 Jan 2009)

 

TRANSITING CHIRON TRINE RADIX URANUS - Now is the time to take a chance and explore new and unusual experiences, to tackle life's problems in an inventive and original way. You are eager to branch out and express your true potential with your sights keenly focussed on the future rather than the past. You feel alive and energetic, prepared to venture forth into unexplored territories, particularly those involving metaphysics, science and computers. And chances are that you will be presented with plenty of opportunities. You may even discover healing or teaching talents that you never knew existed. Make the most of these energies while they last, although do not throw caution entirely to the wind.

 

 

19 Jan 2009    (4 Jan 2009 to 2 Feb 2009)

 

TRANSITING CHIRON TRINE RADIX NORTH NODE - Opportunities come but once in a lifetime, or so the saying goes. Now is the time for you to be open to opportunities to discover and express your special gifts. If you believe that everyone has a purpose in this world then now is your chance to discover yours and make the most of the doors that open. It is also possible that you are given the chance to mend broken bridges during this time, which will in turn pave the way for a brighter future.

 

 

30 Jan 2009    (26 Jan 2009 to 4 Feb 2009)

 

TRANSITING JUPITER TRINE RADIX NEPTUNE - You feel at one with the world during this transit. Meditation, music, art, dance, photography, spiritual groups, travel and communing with nature offer moments of peace and tranquility. You feel creative and intuitive. Therefore it is a good time to explore and express the more artistic and spiritual side of your nature.

 

 

4 Feb 2009    (31 Jan 2009 to 9 Feb 2009)

 

TRANSITING JUPITER OPPOSITION RADIX ASCENDANT - The joy of being in relationship with other people is likely to surface during this stage of your life. You enjoy socialising with your loved ones, perhaps spending time delighting in their interests rather than your own. Even if you are introverted you are likely to want to spend more time with someone intimate. If you are married, then your love is bound to grow and flourish right now. You enjoy intimacy with your spouse and, in turn, your loved one responds positively. If you are not married then you may meet someone who has a beneficial effect. You may even decide to get engaged or married during this period. Gifts and appreciation flow in your most intimate relationship. Any potential business partnerships also support your goals right now. You are likely to strike up a mutually beneficial contract. Just make sure that you are not too ambitious in your goals. Sometimes this transit can highlight the problems, which exist in your relationship. These difficulties may be blown out of proportion and you would be wise not to make any hasty decisions. It is more likely that you experience a real sense of well being and happiness in your marriage, potential marriage or business partnership. So make the most of this positive phase and let those you love know how important they are to you.

 

 

14 Feb 2009    (1 Feb 2009 to 28 Feb 2009)

 

TRANSITING CHIRON OPPOSITION RADIX VENUS - Your relationship with your partner is a source of pain either through your partner's actions or an external event. It is true that this person or event has opened some inner wound, but you have the opportunity now to heal the past and move forward. You need to be aware of the fact that the other person or the event may not have been intended to hurt you. It is simply that they have triggered a deep, sub-conscious memory which is causing you pain. In a strange fashion this present pain is a gift as it allows you to delve deep within your own nature for solutions. This transit can be linked to emotional pain, but it is also possible that your partner or a loved one is suffering from a physical illness. Either way it is important that you nurture yourself and your loved ones. You can use many different avenues to alleviate your troubles, ranging from simply surrounding yourself with compassionate friends, to exploring alternative healing and therapies. It is important that you treat yourself and others kindly as this can be an acutely painful time. Your dreams may also hold keys to your present-day predicament. Tears may flow, but it is ultimately a time of healing and education. In some cases it is possible that your partner is undergoing a transformation, clearing old emotional wounds from their past, which positively affects your life.

TRANSITING SATURN SQUARE RADIX NORTH NODE - The people who enter your life now are likely to play a significant role in shaping your destiny. For instance perhaps you are a youngster and a sibling is born during this period. This sibling is likely to make an important contribution. Alternatively perhaps you meet someone special during this phase. You may marry this person. Decisions that you make during this time are also likely to significantly affect the next phase of your life. You may decide to move neighbourhoods or build a new home in your own neighbourhood. Whoever you meet and whatever you decide is likely to affect you for at least fourteen years. You may also feel compelled to say "goodbye" to friends or leave employment. In other words you are faced with choices about eliminating obstacles on your life's path in order that you may better fulfil your purpose in the future. You may find this frightening, but situations arise now that force you to face your fears. This transit is part of the assimilation and elimination process required to help us further our purpose in this world. You may also be excited by this process. It is similar to the process that migrants experience when they leave one country. There is the sadness of leaving all that is familiar - loved ones, home, security etc. However, there is also the excitement about a future that could hold rich rewards and exciting new experiences. If you believe in the process of reincarnation and karma, then you will know that this is a very karmic period. It offers you the chance to put to right past wrongs and to move forward with your life purpose.

TRANSITING JUPITER OPPOSITION RADIX MERCURY - Generally speaking this is a positive time during which you receive good news, positive outcomes to transactions and easy execution of your goals and plans. You are open-minded and eager to share ideas with other people. You are confident in your own opinions. However, you do have to be careful how you go about your business. On the one hand you are confident and optimistic and other people respond positively with special gifts, support and favours. However, you also have the tendency to be grandiose, lacking tact and diplomacy.  In other words, if you are not careful, you can be opinionated and blunt. Others may be quick to point out these faults, which you find irritating rather than helpful. Before you know it your positive dealings have spiralled into a maze of mis-communications. This is easily avoided if you show some restraint in your communications with others. Once you have learned diplomacy then you are likely to benefit from anything that involves contracts, transactions, study, teaching, travel and the media.

 

 

27 Feb 2009    (13 Feb 2009 to 11 Mar 2009)

 

TRANSITING SATURN SQUARE RADIX URANUS - This can be a time of great tension. You experience less of the tension if you have built your life on a firm foundation with a healthy balance between responsibility and the need for freedom and change. However, if you have allowed your life to become stuck in tired, rigid routines, this period can be very upsetting. Any area of your life that has become stuck in a rut is open to challenge and you will find it best to face the challenge of changing old patterns and embrace new and exciting plans.

 

 

19 Feb 2009    (15 Feb 2009 to 24 Feb 2009)

 

TRANSITING JUPITER OPPOSITION RADIX PLUTO - Life can take on an explosive quality during this period as you struggle to achieve your goals. It seems as though other people and external events are deliberately plotting to thwart your every move. However, it may be that you are going overboard in your attempts to get your own way. The trouble is that you want to make great changes in your life, but lack the necessary tolerance and patience to get the timing right. Power and the abuse of power may become a focus of your life. You would be wise to muster as much restraint as is possible or you may simply go too far and lose the lot.

 

 

13 Mar 2009    (8 Mar 2009 to 18 Mar 2009)

 

TRANSITING JUPITER TRINE RADIX CHIRON - Now is the time to make the most of any opportunities to lay to rest painful memories, which have haunted you in times gone by, and move into areas that are linked straight to your heart. Opportunities for learning present themselves and you may discover talents that you never knew existed. One person, an important teacher or healer may enter your life, or you could take a study course or travel. Alternatively if this transit happens later in your life, you also may have the chance to express your own teaching and healing talents, finding an appropriate avenue of expression for wisdom gained from past experience.

 

 

19 Mar 2009    (14 Mar 2009 to 24 Mar 2009)

 

TRANSITING JUPITER TRINE RADIX MOON - This is a feel-good transit. In other words you feel good about yourself, your life and your loved ones. As a result you are particularly warm and loving. Your contentment is obvious to your loved ones, and they want to spend time with you. Right now you know how to have a good time, and indulge yourself. The only concern is the tendency to go to extremes. You need to be wary of over-indulgence in all things. The temptation is to express your feelings and indulge yourself with no restraint or consideration for others. However, if you can keep a balanced outlook then you and your loved ones benefit from your generous and optimistic outlook. It is also possible that you use this time to make your life, in particular, your home more comfortable. This could simply be purchasing more comfortable furniture and furnishings, or you may make plans to move to a home more suited to your current needs. Your family life may expand in some way. Perhaps a family member will come to stay or perhaps you will give birth to a child. Either way you are likely to welcome these changes. This is a positive move, as long as you take everyone's needs into consideration.

 

 

26 Mar 2009    (21 Mar 2009 to 1 Apr 2009)

 

TRANSITING JUPITER TRINE RADIX JUPITER - Lucky in love and life can be the catchphrase for this transit. Although it is not as powerful as some other Jupiter transits, it is a time of optimism and good fortune. Do not pass up opportunities, but use your discrimination regarding the opportunities that come your way. You may find that the opportunities that arise are connected with travel, study, and anything that expands your horizons.

 

 

1 Apr 2009    (27 Mar 2009 to 6 Apr 2009)

 

TRANSITING JUPITER TRINE RADIX URANUS - A sudden and exciting new opportunity may present itself during this transit and you are in just the mood to make the most of any break in your normal routine. Your psychic and intuitive abilities may be strong making up for any lack of practical common sense. Study, travel, technical, esoteric and scientific pursuits may also feature.

 

 

3 Apr 2009    (29 Mar 2009 to 9 Apr 2009)

 

TRANSITING JUPITER TRINE RADIX NORTH NODE - During this time you have the chance to improve your relations with other people, and to make new connections. You may meet a particular person, or take up with a new group of people. Either way this connection could help you expand your horizons in life. This can have a positive effect on your life as long as you recognise the opportunities, and do not pass them up. An engagement and marriage may be on the cards.

 

 

14 Apr 2009    (8 Apr 2009 to 20 Apr 2009)

 

TRANSITING JUPITER OPPOSITION RADIX VENUS - You are struggling to get what you want from your loved one. In fact relationships of all kinds, particularly with women, may be a source of difficulty right now. The trouble is that you or your loved one are expecting too much. There has to be a balance between the adventures of life and the routine daily demands. Right now one of you is seeking only the adventure and this is causing tension. It is often hurtful when one person in a close relationship upsets the balance, so it is understandable if you are feeling rejected by your loved one. The best approach may be to give the other person a little bit of time to settle down. They may need a little bit of freedom before returning to a more balanced approach to the relationship. On the other hand it could be that the other person's insensitivity to your relationship is the straw that breaks the camel's back, as far as you are concerned. In astrology Jupiter is considered to be a positive influence. Therefore it is more likely that things will settle down with positive results from this topsy-turvy time.

 

 

14 Jun 2009 and 18 Jul 2009    (8 May 2009 to 26 Aug 2009)

 

TRANSITING URANUS TRINE RADIX SATURN - Life takes on a fresh new look during this time, as you have the energy to make the changes you need to old structures. You are keen to branch out into new areas without jeopardising all that you have built in the past. You are original, self-confident and also well-balanced. Other people will respect you, and therefore you have the ability to achieve.
