The Washington Post (Nov. 24, 2010) reports, "Unemployment is set to remain higher for longer than previously thought, according to new projections from the Federal Reserve that would mean more than 10 million Americans remain jobless through the 2012 elections - even as a separate report shows corporate profits reaching their highest levels ever." Will we see The Great Economic Train Wreck of 2011 as we continue catering to the plutocrats even as another World War looms large before us? Maybe Obama's personal agenda can give us a clue.



Transits Reading for Barack Obama

for six months starting 1/01/2011



The following pages describe the major transits that you will be experiencing over the coming period. These pages can give you insight into the challenges that you will encounter and the underlying lessons that they offer you. There are literally hundreds of transits occurring for you each year, so this report focuses on those which occur more infrequently and therefore present the greatest challenges.

The "Exact" transit dates and immediately prior to those dates are the times when the energies described will be felt most strongly and when actual events related to the transit are most likely to occur. Many transits will have three "Exact" dates listed. This is because the transiting planet goes retrograde (R) and then direct (D) again, causing three "hits." When this is the case, the issues associated with the transit will surface on the first hit, there will be some progress toward resolving these issues on the second hit, and the third hit will bring final resolution.

Read your transit report over once now to get a general overview of the coming period. Then, as the issues described in this report begin to appear in your life, you can refer back to this report for suggestions on how to best handle the changes that you are experiencing. Even the worst transit can be a valuable experience if you are fortunate enough to "get" the lesson that it offers.

The readings stress that you are the ultimate decider of your fate. Astrology can give you a "weather report" on the energies influencing you, but it is up to you to decide how you will react. Some people can benefit greatly under normally difficult transits because they eagerly meet the challenge head on. Others will not benefit from the most positive transits because they did not pursue opportunities presented to them. Request a personal reading if you would like to examine your upcoming changes more thoroughly.

Now on to your personal transits report.

Mars conjunct Saturn: 1/9/2011 6:48 PM, Exact

Stumbling blocks must be converted into stepping stones. Frustrated actions create irritability. Wait a few days to tackle anything demanding.


Mars sextile Midheaven: 1/14/2011 7:46 AM, Exact

Self-confidence runs high today. You do not feel insecure and are not plagued by self-doubt. Take the initiative and reconcile your personal interests with those of the people around you.


Jupiter trine Midheaven: 1/16/2011 4:07 AM, Exact

As with most Jupiter trines, this transit brings renewed optimism and self-confidence. You feel that you can accomplish a great deal and are willing to work hard to do it. You will become a model for others, who will respect you and follow your guidance and leadership. They will trust in you because of your self-confidence and positive attitude. Many achieve professional success, such as a promotion or new job, during this transit. You are likely to gain financially under this transit, and you are not likely to spend it quickly and foolishly. This would be a good time to invest in a new business, expanding an old one, or even in your home. Depending on whether there are other transits that support this one, you may not experience any real material gain, but will merely feel tranquil and content. While this transit is considered "lucky," you must provide the incentive to achieve concrete results at this time. You feel good about yourself and therefore attract others to you. At this time you feel disposed to offer a shoulder for friends to lean on and to cheer them up if they are depressed. You feel generous and cooperative, and you could work out any hard feelings with family members now. This is also a good time to handle legal affairs or to travel. As with most Jupiter transits, the only danger here is that you will overdo. Remember, you yourself are only human. Be reasonable with demands you make on yourself.


Mars conjunct Jupiter: 1/16/2011 7:43 PM, Exact

The ego should avoid excessive swelling. Physical energy is high. There is an element of luck at this time. Act now.


Mars oppose Mercury: 1/18/2011 5:14 PM, Exact

Ideas and plans may be challenged, causing harsh words and irritation. Delay discussions. Leave the driving to others.


Mars trine Moon: 1/20/2011 12:28 AM, Exact

The feelings take on an intensity, seeking gratification. Heartfelt expressions of passion are revealed. Domestic chores are handled with ease.


Mars square Neptune: 1/26/2011 5:33 PM, Exact

Feelings of malice and discouragement, or the desire to take evasive action accompany this phase. Vitality is low. Drugs and alcohol complicate matters.


Jupiter sextile Jupiter: 1/27/2011 2:53 AM, Exact

This is a very pleasant transit; there is more balance in your life than usual and things seem to go well without much work on your part. Now is a time to relax and enjoy life; feel confident that things are running smoothly and that you deserve a break. All growth comes more easily than usual now--professional, social and personal. Professionally, this is also a time of ease. Your superiors seem to approve of you and your actions, and you are likely to be recognized for your abilities. Negotiations will go well now, and it is a good time to expand your business or seek a promotion. This is especially true in areas associated with Jupiter, such as travel, publishing, education or religion. If you are involved in any legal matters now, they should have a favorable outcome. Now is also a time of self-examination and assessing what you have done and will do with your life. While you will probably not immediately act on any conclusions you form now, you will be able to mull them over in your mind and make plans for taking necessary steps later. You are able to view yourself in a detached manner now, and this can be quite useful in evaluating your life goals. This way the decisions you make will be made from a calm, peaceful and accepting perspective rather than in the midst of chaos. This is an excellent time for education of all kinds--whether in a classroom or not. It is also good for engaging in consciousness-raising activities or workshops. You are able to get to know yourself very well at this time, and to feel good about what you see. It would also be very mind-expanding to travel to foreign places now. You will be able to understand your interrelationship with all of humanity and to learn a great deal from different cultures you encounter.


Mars oppose Sun: 1/31/2011 5:09 PM, Exact

The ego and business interests are tested. Angry confrontations are possible. Buried resentment could surface suddenly.


Jupiter square Venus: 1/31/2011 11:23 PM, Exact

You are very loving and giving at this time and feel an urge to express your love to others. You will attract new people and situations to you now, but you must take the incentive and take action to get results in life. Instead, you are likely to feel more lazy than usual now. But if you just wait for everything and everyone to come to you, you will waste the opportunities offered by this transit. Now is not the time for work; play if you can. If possible, get away from it all and have fun! You enjoy drinking in the beauty of the world and want to surround yourself with pleasant things and people. Just be careful not to overspend your budget acquiring beautiful possessions. Your taste is somewhat extravagant now, and you may not think your purchases were such wise ones once this transit has passed. Also, watch out for hidden costs. If a deal seems too good to be true, it probably is. If you meet a new love at this time, it could be the beginning of a long-term relationship. However, this relationship would not always be easy, although it would be a source of personal growth for both of you. Through interacting with this person you will mature and gain wisdom that you can apply later in life. Your greatest danger under this transit is that you will be too emotionally compulsive for the other person to handle. Venus represents the desire to give love, and Jupiter represents the need for growth and freedom. These can be used together creatively to construct a satisfying relationship, or they can work at odds with each other. How it works out is largely dependent on your ability to calm down and be patient.


Jupiter trine Mercury: 2/3/2011 5:40 PM, Exact

This is an excellent time for communication and intellectual endeavors. Your ability to plan ahead is quite good now, and you can make good judgments. It is a good time to negotiate contracts or seek new opportunities through communication. Your mind is capable of much expansion and growth now, and you are able to see abstract ideas from a practical viewpoint. It is a good time to take on the study of a new subject, undertake a new project, or travel to foreign lands. You can plan your future quite intelligently now and can communicate your ideas with a new clarity. For these reasons, it is an excellent time to buy and sell (especially real estate) or to make well-planned financial investments. You feel like being sincere in your communications with others, and you will be well received and respected for your truthfulness. You can combine both warmth and confidence in your communication with others, and this makes your ideas more palatable to the average person. Even if they do not all agree with you (and of course they won't), they will respect your logic. You are self-confident enough to treat others with respect without feeling that it detracts from your status. At this time you feel more optimistic and self-confident than usual, and you are physically strong. Yet you are also able to judge your limitations now and are not likely to overcommit yourself. Your life is well-planned and your thoughts more organized. You make a very positive impression on others now and may receive a promotion or new career opportunity. Advertising and promotion campaigns will be more effective.


Mars is in the 1st: 2/7/2011 5:13 PM, Moving Forwards at Degree 0 in a 34 Degree House

Mars is in the 1st house now. Self-assertion and increased energy could offend others or lead to accidents if not controlled. Demanding projects can be tackled now.


Mars conjunct Ascendant: 2/7/2011 5:13 PM, Exact

Keep a watchful eye on how you come across to others for the next couple of days, since you now have considerable personal energy available to achieve your desires. You do not want to lose control of it or offend others as you go after what you want.


Jupiter sextile Moon: 2/8/2011 5:01 PM, Exact

This is a very pleasant transit, and you feel generally good about life. You are very generous with others and feel very protective of loved ones. You can be optimistic about your future now and have a very positive attitude. No matter what your sex, relationships with women will be very beneficial to you at this time, emotionally and/or materially. You may meet a woman who acts as somewhat of a guide to you, helping you to better understand yourself emotionally. Or you may encounter a woman in your career who can be of assistance to you. You are more interested than usual in spiritual or occult matters now. You are able to view the religious beliefs and values of your youth with a different attitude so that you can incorporate them into your present value system. You may have discarded many of these beliefs as worthless, but you may find they still hold some truth for you. It is also a good time to invest in real estate or other sound business ventures. Your life is satisfying and fulfilled now. Your emotional needs are being met, and you make new friends more easily at this time. You will begin to see more clearly how you relate to others and can examine your methods for getting your needs met. Often, this transit indicates a time when you deal with a group of people or are perhaps a public figure yourself. If you share any hard feelings with family members, now is a good time to clear up old grudges and disappointments. Family means a great deal to you now. Plan a family trip and have fun together.


Mars oppose Uranus: 2/16/2011 7:57 PM, Exact

Watch every step now. Accidents can happen suddenly due to inattention. The urge to break free is irresistible. Avoid acting weird.


Uranus trine Midheaven: 2/19/2011 2:20 PM, Exact

This transit occurs only twice in each 84-year cycle of Uranus. Now is a good time for making constructive changes in both at home and at work. You may receive sudden opportunities for growth in your career or may change careers entirely and take up something you find more stimulating. Sometimes this transit indicates a new career in electronics, science, computers, or engineering. Whatever career you choose at this time, be sure it is on the up-and-up. You will already attract the attention of authority figures just because you are pursuing goals that are different from society's norm. This transit also stimulates an interest in metaphysics, particularly astrology. You are highly creative and innovative in what you do now. Your ideas are fresh and original, and you recognize that new problems cannot be solved with the same outmoded solutions. New techniques for accomplishing old tasks are of interest to you now, and you may update your lifestyle, both at work and at home. This is a good time to install more modern systems designed to give you greater freedom. At this time you feel the need to express your individuality in a way that is uniquely you. Don't be discouraged if your choice for a new career is not a traditionally "proper" one. You must keep an open mind to explore any fields of endeavor that attract you.


Mars square Midheaven: 2/21/2011 10:41 AM, Exact

The aggressive energy you have today can get you into conflict with others, especially with superiors for those in professional life. Problems may crop up in the domestic area as well. Pay attention to your impulsivity today, and keep from frustrating yourself.


Pluto trine Pluto: 2/22/2011 6:59 PM, Exact

This is a once-in-a-lifetime transit which occurs late in life and affects everyone in your age group. Pluto transits are times of intense change and usually last about a year. At this time you will ponder the greater meaning of life and your role in the universe. You are likely to try out new belief systems and may practice yoga, meditation, mysticism or metaphysical sciences. You are highly intuitive and may have psychic or paranormal experiences. At this time it is easier for you to let go of your struggles and to allow the greater forces of the universe to guide you in life. You will achieve much more during this time if you can do so. Since you can see the larger perspective on life, you recognize that even the hardest times are all part of a larger plan. You're more patient with the seeming disappointments in life. New opportunities for growth may be presented to you, and you will become more stable and mature in your life in general. This is an excellent time for self-examination and even psychotherapy. Recognizing changes that need to be made in yourself and then making them comes easier at this time. You begin to see a deeper meaning in everyday events and to follow the lead of your higher self. Your dreams could be very revealing at this time.


Mars trine Venus: 2/25/2011 2:59 AM, Exact

Love and sex harmonize. The opposite sex is attracted by creative associations. A new romance is possible if other aspects lend support.


Mars square Moon: 2/27/2011 2:24 AM, Exact

Irritability and tearful blowups are possible. Domestic issues demand attention. Sudden tensions surface, sometimes causing accidents.


Neptune square Midheaven: 3/2/2011 12:39 PM, Exact

During this once-in-a-lifetime transit you'll begin to lose confidence in your long-held goals in life. They may seem somehow empty and meaningless, or perhaps you've lost faith in your ability to reach them. Others may recognize that you are confused and disoriented, and they may try to take advantage of your vulnerable state. Avoid entering into contracts or making long-term commitments until the effects of this transit have passed and you are more able to aggressively defend your interests. You have a renewed interest in spiritual, mystical or metaphysical subjects, and you may become involved in a spiritual group or movement. Beware of false prophets, and don't hesitate to question the teachings of spiritual leaders you meet now. You must not get so caught up in the "drug" of spirituality that you can't function effectively on the material plane. Carefully watch your own motives during this time. You may suffer losses, especially in your business or career. You are probably to blame for these losses; if you are, be willing to admit it rather than blaming others. Learn from your mistakes and go on, rather than beating yourself or feeling sorry for yourself. Creating sympathy and guilt in others won't make the problems go away.


Mars oppose Pluto: 3/3/2011 3:44 PM, Exact

Ethics and morals fly out the window when efforts to change things meet resistance. A selfish disregard for others is dangerous.


Mars trine Neptune: 3/5/2011 5:34 PM, Exact

Health care professionals are more effective. Sensitivity to social concerns prompts unselfishness. Spiritual pursuits offer comfort.


Jupiter trine Sun: 3/21/2011 4:37 AM, Exact

This is a time of high optimism and pleasant feelings. It is a good time to explore those areas of your life which you have previously feared to venture into. You are very creative now and can assert yourself confidently in creative ventures. This transit increases your changes of receiving recognition and reward for your creative efforts. The wind appears to be at your back, and you can accomplish a great deal at this time. You may indulge in activities that are traditionally associated with Jupiter, such as travel, physical activity (such as hiking), or higher education. You may travel to foreign places or be increasingly exposed to more "international people". You may even discover a new love through these pursuits. At this time you are more curious and open-minded about new and different cultures and lifestyles. You get along well with others now and have a healthy sense of humor about life. Your health is also good at this time. You feel very generous and benevolent toward others now, especially those who are less fortunate. The only danger with this transit (like many Jupiter transits) is that you will be over-optimistic and take foolish risks and gambles. You feel a little like Superman right now, and your estimates of what you can accomplish may be a little unrealistic for a mere human. Finances usually improve under this transit. At the very least, you will not have to work so hard for the money you get. It is also an excellent time to resolve legal matters. You will feel like surrounding yourself with beauty, and it is good to reward yourself. Just be careful that you don't spend as much (or more) money than you take in.


Mars is in the 2nd: 3/22/2011 8:42 PM, Moving Forwards at Degree 0 in a 35 Degree House

Mars is in the 2nd house now. Ego gratification will be linked to personal possessions which could lead to over- spending or financial disputes. Hard work leads to increased earnings.


Mars oppose Mars: 3/23/2011 11:23 AM, Exact

Mutual actions are at odds creating opposition from others. Work alone for now. Apply excess energy to self-realization.


Uranus sextile Jupiter: 3/26/2011 7:54 PM, Exact

This transit occurs only twice in each 84-year cycle of Uranus. It brings good luck, fortune and lots of chances to grow and expand--but it's up to you to make good use of its opportunities. Offers and opportunities may come at you from all directions and from quite unexpected quarters. While this may seem random at first, you will soon realize that they are all pieces of a puzzle falling perfectly into place. This transit offers a lesson in recognizing your role in the larger Universal plan. You may have a sudden opportunity (as well as the resources) to go to school or study with a mentor of some sort. It is likely that you will experience an increased interest in metaphysical and occult subjects now, especially astrology (which is ruled by Uranus). At the very least, your life will present you with lessons that will broaden your mind and lead to greater self-understanding. Travel is common with this transit, and you can expect it to be fast-paced and stimulating. This travel in itself is educational and will give you a greater understanding of others and therefore of yourself. If you hold any prejudices toward a certain race or group, this transit will help you see that we are all brothers and sisters on this earth. This is one of the few transits that is favorable for gambling (unless your natal chart shows inherent bad luck in this area). There will be lots of opportunities to take the risk. You must choose carefully how to invest your time and money, but be sure to act when necessary to take advantage of the situation. You could experience opportunities that are beyond your wildest dreams. Grab them! You are growing a great deal now, and you can do so without the usual pain and trauma that accompany life's major lessons. Enjoy your increased freedom (inner and outer) and learn all you can from this exciting time.


Mars sextile Saturn: 3/27/2011 12:40 AM, Exact

Construction projects run smoothly. Energy is sustained in cooperative efforts. Business and industry prosper. Take care of details.


Mars trine Midheaven: 3/31/2011 1:15 PM, Exact

This transit brings self-confidence and the ability to accomplish tasks you set for yourself particularly in the area of professional life and public standing. Indeed, others look to you for leadership, making it easier for them to work with you.


Mars sextile Jupiter: 4/3/2011 1:28 AM, Exact

Cooperative efforts progress smoothly. Enthusiasm boosts business and career interests. Supervisors are helpful.


Mars square Venus: 4/4/2011 6:22 AM, Exact

Feelings of affection may be over-shadowed by pure, unadulterated lust. Squelched passion turns to anger. Relationships are rocky.


Mars trine Mercury: 4/4/2011 11:22 PM, Exact

Handle all written and spoken communications while words flow easily. Negotiations make progress. Travel is accented.


Mars sextile Moon: 4/6/2011 6:53 AM, Exact

Emotional issues involving people and places you have a strong attachment to from the past take the foreground for the next couple of days. Passion finds an outlet. Objective reasoning is poor, due to intense feelings. This is a good time to work at projects that benefit your children, family or home.


Uranus square Venus: 4/12/2011 1:51 PM, Exact

This transit occurs only twice in 84 years. Uranus is certain to liven up your love life at this time, and your relationships are likely to go through tremendous change. It is important to you now that your love life be exciting, and you will not tolerate a boring partner. You also seek greater freedom of movement now, and any relationship that can't adapt to this change in you must go, even a long-time marriage. If the marriage is solid, however, you will find a way to incorporate needed changes and continue your life together, although it will require compromise on both your parts. A new partner may enter your life now who appears to offer you the greatest excitement and freedom. If this occurs, just be sure to wait until this transit has passed before you make a long-term commitment. You should certainly resist the temptation to toss aside the security of your marriage and family on a meaningless fling. You could be left with regrets later when the new flame suddenly dies down. During this transit, you are attracted to those who are very different from you in terms of age, race, background or social status. In a way, these relationships have a "taboo" feeling about them which you are rebelling against. Also, they are very safe emotionally. In looking for freedom now, you are actually looking for non-commitment. Be careful not to go on a spending spree now. Your taste is more gaudy than usual now, and you may not be so happy with your good deals after the effects of this transit have passed. Also, be careful not to overdo on exotic food and drink.


Jupiter sextile Ascendant: 4/12/2011 11:54 PM, Exact

At this time your friends are literally your greatest asset; it is an excellent time for working with a group or even just a few partners, and you may have the opportunity to do so during this time. These opportunities will come from the most unsuspected quarters--from friends who were previously only casual acquaintances. This transit can also indicate a time of travel. Whether you travel physically or through your mind, your awareness of the world will broaden. Perhaps you will meet new friends who are from radically different cultures than yours and will grow to understand that foreigners are merely different, not strange. You may form lasting friendships with people of varied backgrounds at this time. You are open-minded enough now to drop any previously held prejudices and accept people as they are. It is also possible that an old friend will re-enter your life, bringing a business opportunity of some sort. Or you may follow a lead given by a friend that turns out to be a fantastic opportunity for growth (economic or personal). At this time you also feel quite benevolent toward others and are willing to help any who need your assistance. You will experience a sort of "instant karma" with those around you. Whatever you put out--which right now is mostly kindness and generosity--you will get back very quickly, although not always from the same source. You feel optimistic and confident now, and you can't sit by and just watch others who are suffering. It is obvious to others during this time that you will deal with them honorably and equitably. In turn, they feel they can treat you in the same fashion. Business negotiations and legal affairs should go very well at this time. Just don't let your optimism lead you to promise more than you can deliver.


Mars trine Sun: 4/18/2011 3:47 AM, Exact

This is perfect timing for any athletic contest. Confidence is present without excess egotism. Physical love is satisfying.


Saturn sextile Sun: 4/21/2011 9:16 AM, Exact

This transit occurs twice in every 28- to 30-year cycle of Saturn. While it is not a necessarily "lucky" transit, it is a time when you will receive opportunities that can reward you handsomely if you are willing to work hard. The key word here, however, is "opportunities." And, as we all know, they don't knock twice. Don't be afraid to pursue offers that look promising. But you will have to put forth the effort in order to achieve your goals. You have the self-discipline and stamina now to undertake the most demanding tasks. Your greatest success during this time will be the reputation you achieve for your good work and high level of responsibility. You must proceed with caution now in order to protect that reputation; be sure to keep your commitments and not to promise more than you can deliver. You easily inspire the respect of others now--employers as well as Coworkers or employees--and you will be able to fall back on this reputation later in life. Now is an excellent time to gain insights into planning a better future. This is an especially good time to seek favors from persons of authority and to negotiate business contracts. You may even encounter a new love partner through your career. Your health will be generally good during this time, but don't get careless and abuse it. Build up your physical as well as spiritual strength now; you may need it later. Instead of kicking back and enjoying the ride of this pleasant transit, take steps to lay a foundation upon which you can build in the future.


Uranus trine Mercury: 4/22/2011 11:39 PM, Exact

During this transit (which occurs only twice every 84 years) your mind is particularly sharp and active. You are able to see life through a different perspective now, and even ordinary things and events have a new excitement to them. You seek wildly different experiences now, as you try to broaden your perspective on all facets of life. During this time you are more open-minded to the differences among people than usual. You will be fascinated by people with unique lifestyles or innovative ideas, and you may feel an urge to travel to new places to see more exciting things. This would be an excellent time to travel for adventure, although not so good if you want quiet rest and relaxation. Exposing yourself to different cultures and civilizations now will serve to broaden and enrich your mind. This is also an excellent time to teach or to become a student. It is a good transit for studying science and technology (such as computers), or astrology and other metaphysical sciences. You are more adept than usual at grasping new concepts, even those which you may have previously discounted as invalid. This is also a wonderful time to deepen your present research. You may find that you make discoveries now that had eluded you earlier, even though you have been studying the same materials all along. This is a great time to begin new ventures or to institute changes in your career or business. Announce a new product or service; try a new advertising campaign. You are highly intuitive now and may receive valuable psychic insights. If you've been in a boring rut, now is the time to break out of it.


Mars sextile Ascendant: 4/25/2011 8:35 AM, Exact

Energy is available today, both for working with others or by yourself. Increased personal effectiveness allows you to assert yourself and get things done without opposition.

Mars is in the 3rd house now, stimulating the expression of opinions and ideas with close associates, and leading to possible conflicts. Intellectually demanding tasks can be mastered.


Mars square Jupiter: 5/12/2011 5:21 AM, Exact

Energies can escalate beyond control. Impulsive actions beget chaos. Self-control is the key to successful results.


Mars sextile Venus: 5/13/2011 11:06 AM, Exact

This is a time for entertainment, parties and physical love. Artists feel creative. Relationships with the opposite sex prosper.


Jupiter trine Uranus: 5/13/2011 1:42 PM, Exact

This transit is known for being lucky, and always brings something unexpected. You feel like doing something out-of-the-ordinary at this time and want to explore new perspectives on life. You may feel the urge to travel and may have the sudden opportunity to do so during this time. You may have new opportunities presented to you, seemingly from out of nowhere, such as money from the blue, a move to a better residence, a promotion, business opportunity, or a chance meeting with someone who contributes to your success. You may make exciting new friends or join a scientific, religious, occult, cultural or educational organization which provides the support you need to achieve your goals. Whatever it is, it will require immediate action on your part and it will probably be a wild departure from your norm. You won't have time to sit around and consider the outcome. Your mind is particularly sharp and inventive at this time. You may come up with innovative ideas that can be put into practice at a later time. Spiritual and metaphysical subjects are of great interest to you now, and you strive to incorporate these principles into your belief system and everyday life. Your intuitive and psychic abilities are heightened; it is a good time to practice astrology. Although this transit is known for its luck in gambling, this will not help you if you are already "unlucky" in nature. Be cautious if you gamble and don't spend more than you have.


Jupiter square Saturn: 5/13/2011 9:55 PM, Exact

At this time you will weed out many unnecessary people and things from your life. Your moral values and behavior patterns will change to become more appropriate to the "new you" that is emerging. Now is a good time to go to a retreat or at least take time for meditation. It is not a good time to rely on the opinions of others because you are likely to get wildly conflicting advice. The challenge to you at this time is to balance out your life--cutting back in those areas that require it and growing in others. Your business may suffer financial difficulties or layoffs. If you expand your business during this time, be sure to stay within your means. Make a budget and stick to it. Whatever you do now in your professional life will have a more important impact than usual on your future. Be patient and take your time to find the proper solution to any problems. Be careful with finances during this time and resist the temptation to rebel against your limitations by spending wildly. You may change jobs under this transit because a better offer comes along with more opportunity for growth. This is a good time for a career change, but be careful to do it in a way that is not disruptive to you or anyone else. Your reputation may be challenged by mistakes from your past. Don't expect much help from your friends in high places. This is also an unfavorable time for legal disputes. You may feel restless and impatient now, uncertain about your future. You know that changes need to be made in your life, but you may not be sure exactly where or how. Take your time when making any important decisions. Think through your options carefully before acting.

The word can become a weapon if nervous irritation escalates. Delay dangerous tasks for a few days. Drive with care.


Uranus sextile Moon: 5/14/2011 9:57 PM, Exact

This transit occurs only twice in each 84-year cycle of Uranus. Your emotions are highly stimulated by this transit, and you will allow yourself to look at the world very subjectively. Your inner world is at least as important to you as the outer "reality" that you function in. Now is the time to revel in your innermost feelings. You are likely to make more emotional demands on your friends and love partners. All new and existing relationships must have an excitement to them that you may not have demanded before. If your current relationships cannot adjust to your increased emotional needs, you will not hesitate to find others that do. You have to be able to exercise total freedom in your emotional self-expression. Anyone who tries to limit you in this area will meet with great resistance. It is possible that you will make innovative changes in your home environment during this time, and you will require that it be more emotionally satisfying. You want your home to be stimulating and exciting and will not settle for safety and security alone in your domestic life now. Now is also a great time to entertain guests in your home. As you learn more about your innermost feelings, your creativity will also be stimulated. It is clear to you how you can make your life more interesting and exciting. You are able to see things from a new perspective, and this lends freshness and innovation to your creative works. This time is especially good for business dealings, especially those involving real estate, food or agriculture.

Pluto trine Pluto: 5/26/2011 3:40 AM, Exact

This is a once-in-a-lifetime transit which occurs late in life and affects everyone in your age group. Pluto transits are times of intense change and usually last about a year. At this time you will ponder the greater meaning of life and your role in the universe. You are likely to try out new belief systems and may practice yoga, meditation, mysticism or metaphysical sciences. You are highly intuitive and may have psychic or paranormal experiences. At this time it is easier for you to let go of your struggles and to allow the greater forces of the universe to guide you in life. You will achieve much more during this time if you can do so. Since you can see the larger perspective on life, you recognize that even the hardest times are all part of a larger plan. You're more patient with the seeming disappointments in life. New opportunities for growth may be presented to you, and you will become more stable and mature in your life in general. This is an excellent time for self-examination and even psychotherapy. Recognizing changes that need to be made in yourself and then making them comes easier at this time. You begin to see a deeper meaning in everyday events and to follow the lead of your higher self. Your dreams could be very revealing at this time.

The ego is alert to any challenge, and ready to fight. Apply excess energy to demanding tasks. Avoid irritations and anger.


Mars square Ascendant: 6/4/2011 9:20 AM, Exact

This brings lots of energy, so it is a good day to work by yourself; but also be prepared for disputes and conflict with others. The best thing to do is to pay close attention to your own personal needs, and to assert yourself when possible. Be careful around cars and machinery.


Jupiter square Jupiter: 6/8/2011 1:49 PM, Exact

This transit substantially raises your confidence level; as a matter of fact, you may have to guard against arrogance and delusions of grandeur. This Jupiter contact creates a tendency for overdoing things. Be careful not to overcommit your time or money. Don't spend lavishly now, expecting the funds to be easily replaced. You have a tendency at this time to overestimate your capabilities and inflate your ego. You still don't walk on water, so keep your feet on the ground and be realistic in the expectations you place upon yourself. You truly feel as though you could do everything for everyone now and genuinely want to, but when you take on too many obligations, many of them are left unfulfilled, and many who have relied on you will be disappointed. Take time to appreciate those you love. Be sure you have the necessary resources (and time) before you make commitments. This is not a good time to take chances, although you may feel like you can't lose. This transit helps you to find out what your realistic limits truly are and to operate within them. Avoid "get-rich-quick" schemes; if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Sometimes, this transit indicates a stroke of good luck, such as a windfall or sudden opportunity. If you should be fortunate enough for this to happen, just be sure you don't spend it as quickly as you receive it. Also, be careful not to over-indulge in food and drink.


Mars trine Mars: 6/10/2011 2:32 PM, Exact

Energies blend with the tasks at hand. There is considerable constructive force available. Self- esteem soars.


Jupiter sextile Venus: 6/13/2011 8:01 AM, Exact

This is a very pleasant transit, especially in the areas of love and money (both ruled by Venus). You feel optimistic and have a positive attitude about life. Because of this you can attract love and/or money to you like a magnet. This is an excellent time to relax or entertain friends, as well as for travel to foreign lands. Even business trips would be very pleasurable (and fortuitous) now, especially those involving publishing, education or cultural exchange. You get along well with people now and project a feeling of love and friendliness. This transit can bring a new love into your life, or it can add some romance to an existing relationship. You will definitely be more attractive to others and will feel like flirting and having a good time. Make yourself conspicuously available for romance during this time. Now is a good time for an interview or other situation in which you need to make a good impression. You relate to others with sincerity and warmth. You feel more like compromising during this transit, and you know how to smooth others' ruffled feathers. Your finances should pick up during this transit, but be careful not to spend your money as soon as you get it. Think twice before purchasing flashy or extravagant items now. They might not look so good to you once this transit has passed. You will enjoy surrounding yourself with beauty and art and have little tolerance for unpleasant or ugly surroundings.


Mars square Uranus: 6/14/2011 7:33 AM, Exact

This is potentially an accident phase when restrictions promote rebellious and impulsive actions. Expect the unexpected. Slow down.

Tackle that difficult, exacting job now. Superiors may reward sacrifice and accomplishment. Activities are favorably structured. 


Jupiter square Mercury: 6/16/2011 4:54 AM, Exact

Your mind is very sharp at this time, and you seek communication with others. You feel very optimistic and have a positive outlook on life. Because you have confidence in your opinions, you are able to communicate your point well to others now. This would be a good time to do some writing or to keep a journal where you record your changing thoughts and ideas. You want to speak more than you want to listen at this time, and you may have to make a conscious effort to let others put in their two cents' worth. It will not be easy for you to accept criticism from others now, yet this is exactly what you need to do. Communicating with others can help you to plan and negotiate well during this period, but you must be willing to hear others' opinions as well as your own. Because your mind needs a challenge, you may feel like changing jobs or residences now. Before investing your bank account in such a decision, be sure the grass is really greener on that side of the fence. You may engage in debate during this time, or even in an intellectual confrontation (better known as an argument). If you do encounter a quarrel with someone, it may be a good time to reexamine your viewpoint and consider why you are reacting defensively to what they are saying. If your beliefs are well-founded, you will hold up well under any attack. Be careful not to overcommit yourself during this time. You probably feel that you are constantly in motion and that there is never enough time in the day to accomplish your tasks. Allow extra time in your schedule for traffic jams, breakdowns and missed connections; otherwise, you'll be chronically late. If you take on more than you can handle now, every task will be done sloppily and with no attention to detail. It's better to accomplish a few jobs professionally than to accomplish many in a slip-shod manner.
