Moon Sextile Moon: A need for intimacy from 30 December 2005 to 31 December 2005: Weak, transient effect: This is a time of deep feelings. Today during the day you want to be surrounded by familiar people and objects that remind you of pleasant past experiences. It is a good time to be with relatives and family and to go over old times with them.
Moon Square Mercury: Subjective thinking 31 December 2005 to 1 January 2006: You have a strong need to communicate about your emotions. It is natural for your opinions to be in a state of flux at this time. Just be honest about admitting it. The danger is that your feelings and emotions will overwhelm your rational intellect, making your thinking so subjective that no one else will be able to relate to what you say.
Pluto sextile Ascendant: Gaining authority Beginning of January 2005 until beginning of November 2006: This is a time of positive change and opportunity in your life. In all of your relationships you are exerting more power and having a stronger than usual effect upon others. This means that you have great responsibility to use this power well.
Out of your everyday environment, where you would least expect it, a very intense relationship may emerge that will change the lives of you both. The most important factor in such a relationship is that it allows you to develop much more of yourself than you have ever known was there.
You could gain a position of authority among your fellow workers or among friends, as in a club or social group. The best way to use this power would be as an agent of reform and improvement.
During this period you may have experiences that cause you to change your goals.
Uranus square Neptune: Undesirable consequences End of March 2005 until end of February 2006: You may suddenly find yourself in the grip of a total delusion that you believe to be the most real thing you have ever encountered. It is very important that you consider very carefully any new idea or philosophy before allowing it to take control of your life.
At best, ideas and philosophies are devices that help you understand and make sense of the confusion of everyday experience. But under this influence ideas may become a substitute for experience, so that you begin to believe in things that you have never experienced. You will be particularly attracted to ideas that help you avoid confrontations with the everyday world.
You may turn to the study of mystical disciplines in an effort to understand what is happening to you. In itself this is not bad, but you will have to be very careful that such studies do not totally alter your sense of proportion.
If you live consistently and are willing to deal with the real world and handle its challenges, this influence can open up aspects of reality that you have never dreamed of. It can signify an enlightenment experience at some level. But if you try to avoid reality altogether, this influence may bring about the state of unconsciousness you desire, but with undesirable consequences.
Saturn trine Neptune: A monastic consciousness End of September 2005 until beginning of July 2006: At this time you will reach a new understanding of your own being and the world around you. In recent years you have probably been through periods of great doubt, uncertainty and confusion.
This is an excellent time for studies that can raise your consciousness, such as yoga, occult metaphysics, spiritualism and mysticism. Now you are able to study these subjects and put them into practice in your everyday life. They will not be purely intellectual or mental activities - you can make them real and useful!
Your ideals are not in conflict with the realities in your life at this time. Your approach is one of calm sober reflection. This is not a time of lightness and gaiety; instead it produces an almost monastic consciousness that contemplates the world with detachment.
Pluto opposition Mars: A roughshod ride End of January 2006 until end of November 2007: This can be a very powerful but somewhat difficult influence to handle, because the energies are so intense that harnessing them creatively may be a problem.
You have to recognize that you have a very strong drive to win, to succeed and, if necessary, to exercise dominion over others in your drive to succeed. These feelings are perfectly all right if you acknowledge them and use them wisely. If you deny them, you will experience tension within yourself and others' actions, and that you are often angry without understanding why.
You can use this energy to accomplish much work and make great changes around you. Just don't get so wrapped up in your own ego that you step on everyone else's toes.
Neptune trine Mercury: Intellect and intuition End of February 2006 until mid December 2007: This is one of the most imaginative periods of your life in a positive way. This influence signifies one of the few times in life when the rational intellect and the intuitive and feeling functions are able to work as a team.
Fortunately, the intuitive sensitivity stimulated by this influence extends to your relationships with others. You understand what people are thinking with much less verbal communication than usual, almost as if you can look into their minds and see what is happening there.
You are likely to take an intellectual interest in metaphysical and spiritual subjects at this time, and your innate psychic abilities may be manifested. But your approach to these subjects is a bit different from most people's. You demand that spiritual matters make sense to you intellectually as well as intuitively. You want to know, not merely to believe, but your newly intuitive sensibility tells you that there are limits to understanding through rational intellect.
If you are involved in any kind of teaching, this influence will be an invaluable aid. You will be able to communicate what you know in such a way that others really understand the subject and also your experience of it.
Neptune sextile Jupiter: Pure faith End of April 2006 until end of November 2008: This influence creates a strong desire for a very special kind of knowledge. You are interested in what the rational mind can tell you, but you also want very much to understand the subtler spiritual truths. You may want to learn more about metaphysics and spiritual teachings through studying the occult.
You may want to travel, and this is a good time to do so.
This is usually a very optimistic time, and positive frame of mind can help to ensure that your plans work out as you want them to.
You enjoy the company of friends at this time, and you feel sufficiently secure and magnanimous that you don't need to bother with the silly ego games that people often play with their friends.
