Oh, finally, this is the sort of thing I always wonder about:
"A slow moving transit (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto) impacting a natal house/planet is often associated with big events in your love life. There is a specific set of expectations associated with each planet. But when these transits hit, and the expected doesn’t happen, you might wonder what the deal is."
Yes, yes, I do!
What you expect: good stuff. An existing relationship bursts at the seams with happiness. An amazing new relationship barrels into your life.
What you may get: a relationship ends. If you’re single, you stay single.
The keyword with Jupiter is “expansion.” Jupiter expands everything. If you and your partner are on the verge of splitting, Jupiter’s push for freedom can be similar to a Uranus transit. The difference is that Jupiter-driven endings can be more amicable. Jupiter broadens your concept of what’s possible, and that includes the possibility of moving on. A Jupiter transit can also expand your existing fears/depressions/anxieties/self-destructive habits. If you’re single, and something that’s been holding you back gets worse, know that Jupiter is amplifying it. The upside? Jupiter also gives you a way out, or at least the opportunity to look for a way out. Remember that Jupiter expands your sense of what’s possible; keep your eyes open for a chance meeting (not necessarily romantic) that opens your eyes to a different way of dating or relating.
Suddenly that explains a lot.
What you expect: divorce, loneliness, isolation.
What you may get: a new relationship or solidified commitment.
This heavy planet can delivers the goods, in a positive way. Yes, transiting Saturn (especially through the 7th House) can bring a new relationship. It won’t be easy, and there will be significant responsibilities attached. But transiting Saturn can bring love.
Hah, totally happened when Saturn was going through my seventh/transiting my Sun/Chiron/ascendant.
What you expect: ruptured relationships or a flash in the pan affair that goes no where.
What you may get: a new relationship that goes the distance, or new life in an existing partnership.
Whether you’re being shaken, stirred or shocked, Uranus wants you to move. Move on from what’s holding you back, towards the future. Sometimes a new relationship’s only purpose is to propel you out of your rut or unhappy partnership. Once you wake up, the new lover vanishes as quickly as he or she materialized. But some relationships that start under this transit can last, if both parties are ready to move forward together.
I haven't really done this one yet, but my forties should be uh, interesting.
"Sometimes,what you get from a major transit is nothing. It’s business as usual, even if transiting Pluto is moving through your 7th House. Or Uranus is moving over your Venus. If this is the case, you may be overlooking the changes (or opportunities for change). Or, the absence of change is significant in itself. If you are absolutely certain nothing is shifting in your love life, it’s time to look at your relationship to that natal planet. What’s happening with its natal position in your chart? How do you deal with its energy in your life? It may be that you have no lessons to learn. But it’s also possible that you’re not tuned into that planet’s energy. Simply becoming aware of how it functions in your life (or how you may be suppressing it) can make a difference."
"To make most of this aspect, pick something that you’ve been putting off (something that involves Leo themes) and just do it. This isn’t a life-changing influence, but it can make it easier for you to pluck up your courage and take that risk. Remember that Uranus retrograde is intensified freedom/change."
What am I putting off? Picking insurance, picking a life goal...everything, basically....
"There can be red hot anguish in undergoing a crisis of faith—it’s a loss of hope that leaves us in despair. We’re afraid for our own safety.
It’s that Dark Night of the Soul. It’s Jesus, crying out on the cross, “My God, why hast Thou forsaken me?”
In times of religious/spiritual crisis in my own life, I don’t necessarily see 9th house transits but more often transits to natal Jupiter. I’ve experienced transits to natal Jupiter from every slow-moving planet from Saturn to Pluto in the time I’ve been in astrology.
I’ve seen major transits to natal Jupiter producing a similar painful upheavals in the lives of clients and friends as well:
- They’re often experienced as a far-reaching crisis of faith where everything we thought we knew no longer seems true or valid.
- Those are the times when our spiritual teachers or others we looked to for inspiration turn out to have terribly human flaws.
- It’s those times when everything we thought made us a good person doesn’t keep us safe when the worst happens.
- Those are the times when the old answers that we firmly believed in no longer serve, and we have to expand our worldview."
I'm going to categorize things...Stuff About My Imaginary/Potential Love Life:
Sun conjunction Venus:
You will have opportunities for romantic relationships. One person (or several!) may court you intensely. You will receive innumerable invitations, and the choice of accepting will be yours. This will not be a year of solitude. If you already have someone in your life, your relationship will be harmonious and you will share many pleasant moments.
Solar Return Moon in Libra:
You will be more emotionally balanced, and you will be softer and warmer with others. You will be more sensitive and dreamy, more romantic and sociable than usual. You will want more contact with people and will step up your social life. During this year, you will want to offer more of yourself to your loved ones and will be rewarded with affection from them in return.
This influence increases your popularity and brings much success in working with the public. Your personal magnetism will be strong and because of it you will attract others to you. You also could develop a greater desire for pleasure and for enjoying life in general.
On the negative side, this influence could make you very dependent. You could rely on the opinions of others too much, limiting your own freedom, especially if their suggestions are contrary to what you desire.
This will be an important year for you personally. If you have plans for marriage or for committing to a serious relationship, you will let it be known. If you are already in a committed relationship, you will have a happy year, but if you are not involved, this could be the year to begin one. This is the result of your emotional inner balance. Concentrate on achieving your own balance and the rest will take care of itself.
Solar Return Asc in or within 3 degrees of natal 7th house:
You will announce an important union during this year. If you have plans for marriage, it would be the right time to tie the knot. On the other hand, you also could get involved with some new business associations.
Your personality will be favored by the public and you will make a very good impression. This will benefit you, if your activities are related to dealing with the public or to politics.
Solar Return 5th house cusp in or within 3 degrees of natal 11th house:
Your social life will be very satisfactory. You will share many amusing and happy moments with your friends. Your popularity will increase and your social circle will expand. You will also develop many new projects and plans for your future. There is the possibility of a friendship turning into romance.
Solar Return 7th cusp Conjunct natal Uranus:
Your spouse or committed partner will arouse your more creative, rebellious, and unconventional side. You will do things that you never had the courage to do before and will feel rather free and uninhibited in the company of others. You will be looking for a less conventional relationship without so many demands placed upon you because you will resent taking orders from others or any type of routine. If you are truly not happy or satisfied with your situation, you will probably want to find a different partner, possibly more than once during the year.
Solar Return llth house cusp in or within 3 degrees of natal 5th house:
Your hopes and desires for finding satisfaction and happiness in your love life will increase. If you are already in a committed relationship, you will find that you will be very compatible. If you do not have a partner at this time, you may have the chance to meet someone through your friends or at a social meeting.
You will be very happy in the company of your friends and will share amusements, pleasures, and sports.
This astrological influence could also transform a friendship into romance.
Venus in 12th house of Solar Return:
Your love life could become very difficult during this year. You could get involved in a secret love relationship that could complicate an already existing relationship. You will be inclined to give more to others than you need to. You must use your compassion wisely and take care not to play the role of martyr or victim. You should use your own judgment and evaluate the condition of your present love life in order to arrive at an satisfactory solution. Be careful not to allow yourself to be unduly affected by feelings of inferiority or by memories of the past that tend to weaken your self respect. If you do, you will have a very difficult year of problems resulting from self blame and dissatisfaction in general. Love could lead you down the wrong path if you don't look at things with a logical, steady mind. It's also important not to waste time getting involved in situations that aren't in your best interest.
Solar Return Venus Conjunct natal Sun:
You will have a strong magnetism and charm during this year and there is the possibility of a romantic meeting with someone. The positive response and demonstrations of affection that you will receive will make you feel very good about yourself. You will be an active participant in any meetings you attend and if you have a position of leadership, you will be accepted and respected by everyone.
Overall, I am very pleased at this. I would not mind a friendship-mance. Or even a secret romance. Okay, so Venus in the 12th is usually a "your cheating heart/secret crush while you're taken" sort of thing, but since I don't have anyone to cheat on, who cares?! At least that way people don't give me shit about it.
That is like, what, seven love predictions? Okay, so 2009 had similar and of course, nothing happened... I really wish I remembered to keep track of this shit over the year and then see if it panned out or not. It is annoying to be immune to such things no matter what anyone says, at times.
Okay, okay, so it's for the best that I remain single, I know that. But I am 50% grumbly about it anyway.
Stuff About My Crappy Job And Crappy Health:
Solar Return MC Capricorn:Well....I work in one of those.
This is a very good year for competing in the work place and achieving your objectives. You will be very determined and will show much insistence in sharing your ideas with others. You will feel very ambitious and sure of yourself in your work, and you won't be given to fears or insecurity. However, take care not to move too quickly or hastily because that could bring some opposition from the others you work with.
If you are involved in science, administration, mathematics, or some sort of business enterprise, you will be very successful.
You could be offered a position of more authority in your work, one that would give you the opportunity to direct and organize others, thereby leading to a promotion and/or raise. Although everything seems to indicate progress in the business world, you could also be drawn to pursue spiritual studies, making your personal growth more complete.I'd guess the spiritual studies part pans out more than a promotion. At this point I'd have to jump ship entirely to get any higher up, or become management. To which I say "ugh" on that last one.
In selecting your goals it will be important to distinguish between principal and secondary ones, and choose them accordingly. Organization and constant work are the key words for becoming successful this year. On the other hand, you may be challenged with problems that need to be resolved, opponents who present a challenge to you, or disagreements with bosses or people who are in authority, which could hinder your growth. You are being tested this year to find your courage and trust in yourself. Don't give way to doubts or fears, but be firm and act on your own ideas. Your success this year will be thanks to your perseverance and hard work and not due to luck.
Sun opposition Saturn:
During this year you could experience obstacles that will be difficult to overcome. The duties and responsibilities of your daily life will seem to choke you. On the other hand, you won't be so willing to gratify your every wish. You will be inclined to take things too seriously and to limit yourself unduly. Try to keep your good humor in spite of the problems you may have and maintain a positive and optimistic attitude.,
You will find that other people will interfere in your life and those in authority over you will be difficult. The relationship with your father, or with some paternal figure in your life, could be very disturbing during this time. You could feel isolated and alone, generating inner feelings of bitterness and frustration. The opposition of others won't be easy to deal with and will require much patience and perseverance on your part.
Solar Return Moon in 6th house:
You may become restless and start thinking of making a change in the work you do. You will be looking for a more pleasant work environment, one which is less stressful. If you are presently working in a noisy or negative environment, you will seek something more positive and congenial. Or you might even think about changing the kind of work you do.
Solar Return 6th house cusp in or within 3 degrees of natal 12th house:
Some health problem you have had in the past could reappear. It is advisable to reassess your habits and daily routine, discarding any activities which could affect your health. Pay attention to your diet and to your personal hygiene. This astrological influence could bring on some chronic illness which, if serious, could lead to confinement or limitation of your freedom.
There could be complications in the work place due to the disloyal competition of co-workers or injustices placed on you by your superiors. There also is a possibility of you getting involved in some secret or illegal work.
Solar Return 6th cusp Conjunct natal Pluto:
Deep, hidden, and repressed emotions could bring on disorders in your physical body. You should try to bring these feelings to the surface so that you can work with them. If you don't, you may have problems later on. During this year, you could very well be able to heal any recurring problems, and with proper treatment, bring about a total cure.
This influence could bring such profound and permanent changes in your work environment that it will seem like a different place. You will have more authority but you will tend to be less flexible in your dealings with others.
Saturn in 6th house of Solar Return:
You will be loaded down with work, responsibilities, and limitations this year. You will probably have problems or conflicts with your superiors. If you are dissatisfied with your job or with the compensation you receive, you won't have the incentive to do the work. You will probably feel resentful of the routine, particularly if you work as an employee of someone else. If you are self-employed, you will be concerned over of the amount of responsibility that you must take on. If you decide you want to change jobs during this year, stay calm and don't rock the boat until you have found another better position.
Solar Return Saturn Conjunct natal Uranus:
Although your daily routine and duties will lead you to want to change your life around in a different direction, you will find it difficult to be as spontaneous and creative as you would like to be. You will rebel against the limitations and restrictions that are imposed on you by others. You will long for complete freedom, but it will be difficult to find it during this time.
Neptune in 10th house of Solar Return:
You could have problems in your work place with confusion and deception. You could be discredited or betrayed by people you work with who attack your position or standing in the organization. This could be a year of uncertainty and possible scandal. Achieving your goals and objectives could require a degree of sacrifice and great effort on your part. It is important to be persevering and not allow yourself to get discouraged, in spite of the problems.
This influence gives you a desire for change, but without a definite direction. It is advisable to think carefully before making an important decision. You could begin to doubt the wisdom of continuing in the professional direction you have been going in.
Under this influence, you could also be asking questions about the meaning of life and other spiritual topics.
Solar Return 12th house cusp in or within 3 degrees of natal 6th house:
Be careful not to neglect your work responsibilities this year. You may tend to feel too superior to others around you and expect them to take over your duties. This could result in feelings of envy or enmity in your co-workers.
It is important to pay special attention to your health this year, especially if you have have had serious problems in the past. Illness during this year could require extended rest or hospitalization.
Mars in 12th house of Solar Return:
You should be very cautious during this year because you could be attacked by someone who disagrees with what you believe in. It also could lead to dangerous situations or surprise attacks of some kind. There could also be the possibility of accidents or confinement.
You probably won't be able to channel your energies very easily and could be frustrated in your attempts. Your attempts to take action will be repressed or will manifest in an inappropriate manner. In general, you won't make a good impression on others and can even evoke their enmity. You will be acting primarily from a subconscious level and could therefore react too impulsively or destructively. You need to explore and become aware of bitterness and negative feelings you have brought with you from the past and take steps to heal them.
You would be better off working alone, avoiding too much pressure from your superiors. Social or charitable work could be a positive way of expressing this energy providing you are interested in doing it. You could also get interested in some sort of investigative work, the solving of mysteries or delving into secrets.
Yeah...that's not good...Well, work has been changing and stressful (and now, more drama-y) over the last year any way even BEFORE Uranus officially went into my sixth house...I had to look it up because it sure feels like it's alredy been there for awhile. Uck. Anyway, all of that does sound highly likely.
Stuff In Which I Will Either Gain Or Lose A Lot Of Money:
Solar Return Ascendant Taurus:
Material matters will be very important to you this year. This is a favorable period for increasing your financial position. You may start looking for new ways to increase your income and, if other indications are favorable, you will find the means to do so.
Solar Return 2nd house cusp in or within 3 degrees of natal 8th house:
You will have a great improvement in your finances due to an inheritance or legacy, or through the collaboration of your spouse, partner or business associate. On the other hand, there is danger of certain complications in your own business or of loss of employment. Be cautious and don't neglect your personal finances.
Jupiter in 2nd house of Solar Return:
You will expand your financial possibilities and earn more money during this year. You will be able to achieve your goals and sometimes a little bit more. Your sense of expanding and being more financially powerful will be very strong. On the negative side, this could cause you to spend more than you earn. You should control your purchases or expenses because you could run up an excessive amount of debt without realizing it. You won't want to deprive yourself of anything and you will have trouble knowing how to distinguish between what is real and what is not.
You won't run short of money this year and it would be very profitable for you to include money as one of goals for the year. However, it will be important to be responsible and careful so that you don't find yourself spending excessively in order to exaggerate your status or social position.
Solar Return 8th house cusp in or within 3 degrees of natal 2nd house:
This influence could bring you earnings through inheritances, legacies, donations, legal proceedings, or gifts. However, you should be careful in your regular work assignment because it is possible that you could lose your job now.
Pluto in 8th house of Solar Return:
Some of your old life patterns will come to an end this year and you will experience a transformation and significant changes in your current situation. Deep repressed emotions and impulses will be coming to the surface of your consciousness to be looked at and worked with. You will be dealing with profound, important subjects, such as life and death, or other mysteries of life. Your sexual urges will be stronger than usual.
On the material side, there could be changes due to situations beyond your control. Your financial situation could change suddenly, for better or for worse, especially if you have joint resources with other people. It would not be a good time to apply for credit or to take on any new debts.
Under this astrological influence, you could be the recipient of some type of inheritance or legacy which will change your financial situation.
Okay, this just freaking confuses me. I may gain or lose a lot of money? What? There isn't anyone from me to inherit from (my mom is spending my inheritance and nobody else likes me that much to leave me cash), so the money loss sounds more probable. Feh. But who doesn't have that going on these days.
Moon opposition Mercury:
Your thinking will be less sure, precise, and positive. This could affect your ability to communicate with others and your ability to concentrate. You also will have frequent changes of mood, which may confuse the people around you. You will be more subjective and less logical.
You may want to make a change of residence or make some changes within your home. Any possible change should be considered and thought out thoroughly, avoiding impulsive or capricious decisions. There could be communication problems within the home which will lead to conflicts and difficulties. Always be clear and precise in what you want and ask for. Your popularity will be up and down as you could sometimes be the target of criticism.
In addition, you will be involved in a variety of projects which do not produce any satisfactory, appreciable results. The failure will be a consequence of the lack of continuity in your ideas and projects. Be alert and use your analytical mind in making your decisions.
In the chart of a woman, it marks a great inner transformation, in which you develop stronger and more aggressive personality traits during this year.
Uranus in 11th house of Solar Return:
You will feel attracted to forming new friendships this year. You will want to learn about different life styles and new and revolutionary ideas. Your desire to participate in group activities will increase, especially if they are discussing or studying new, unconventional topics. You will also be thinking of participating in social or philanthropic activities which aid others who are in need. However, you won't necessarily be willing to accept the rules or conduct that these groups will want you to follow.
You may become dissatisfied with your usual friendships, especially with friends who are very conservative, but will be easily attracted to those new relationships that stimulate your intellect. Your desire for novelty and newness could lead you into new, spontaneous activities and relationships. However, it is important to be flexible and understanding of old friends who don't understand your new position.
Your goals, dreams and expectations will undergo change this year so be prepared for it!
Solar Return Uranus Conjunct natal Mercury:
Your thinking will be very much influenced by the unconventional, freedom-loving people that you meet. This new way of thinking will change your attitude toward life and its purpose. You will become very curious about many things, especially the unusual or forbidden. You will want to communicate and exchange your new ideas with many creative people.
Mercury in 12th house of Solar Return:
You will become more quiet and secretive and will want to keep your life on a more intimate basis. You will privately question your ideas and will keep your opinions to yourself. You could have problems communicating with people because you are shy and distrustful of others. You may begin thinking that what you say will be used against you.
Solar Return Mercury Conjunct natal Mercury:
Your intellectual capacity will increase during this year. You probably will associate with people who have the same interests and will stimulate you to continue studying or to participate in intellectual groups. It will be easy for you to learn and also to relate your knowledge during this period. It will be important not to spend all the time talking about your projects without giving anyone else the opportunity to share.
Well, some of that is good and some of that is not. I like the Uranus/Mercury aspect though (have this natally as well), that sounds awesome.
Solar Return 3rd house cusp in or within 3 degrees of natal 9th house:
You probably will study and become more interested in philosophy, religion, politics, or metaphysics. You will be able to easily understand abstract ideas and profound subjects. You will have questions about religion and will search for specific answers to your spiritual questing.
You also could take a trip to a foreign country in pursuit of your studies or maintain correspondence with people who live in another country.
Solar Return 9th house cusp in or within 3 degrees of natal 3rd house:
You probably will take a trip to a foreign country to study or to enlarge your personal knowledge during this period. You will be able to work well with both concrete and abstract thinking, your intuition as well as your reason, and with your philosophical ideas as well as everyday, practical problem solving.
Solar Return MC in or within 3 degrees of natal 3rd house:
You may have to take some short trips relating to your profession, or you may receive certain job proposals by mail or other communication. Your professional growth will be in direct relationship to your intellectual achievement, your conscientious pursuit of your studies, and your relationship with your environment. If you are involved in some type of intellectual work, you will have much success during this year.
I highly doubt I will travel out of the country this year unless I ah, inherit a bunch of money for that. Internet pen palling out of the country may be as far as that goes.
You could find yourself being more realistic and stubborn than usual.How can that be even possible? That's my default!
You will be more tenacious and persevering in pursuing your dreams.Woo hoo!
It is important, however, to not be so obstinate and unwilling to compromise that you cause undue tension and resentment in others. You may find yourself having the desire to acquire beautiful or expensive things to a greater degree than you are used to.Again, how is that last bit even possible?
This year will bring you in contact with practical people with whom you could possibly form a productive business arrangement.Yesssss!
But you should be cautious about moving too fast in these ventures as you might find that the results do not meet your expectations.Oh. :/
If you have artistic inclinations, it will be a positive year for expanding your creative talents. This influence may attract you to begin to study such fields as art, interior decorating and design, or crafts such as pottery, which could ultimately result in material profit.
I wouldn't mind this.
Temper and Injuries:
Sun conjunction Mars:
This is an excellent year to begin new projects, especially those that involve dynamic activity or some risk. You will feel full of vitality and vigor to confront life. You won't enjoy sitting down too much or spending time in one room for a prolonged period and will resist maintaining a daily routine. You will need to find an outlet for your increased dynamic energy. One possibility would be participating in some sport or some work that requires physical effort.
But this influence could also cause you to be more aggressive,, impulsive, and impatient. You will be prone to overreact to the smallest things. It would be wise to be more aware than usual to how you act in situations which trigger off your negative side. This behavior could effect your social relationships and bring about conflicts with people who don't agree with your way of thinking. Your confidence will be strong and you will defend your ideas with great vigor. Try to maintain a certain amount of flexibility. You will be inclined to express yourself most aggressively in the house that is occupied by the Sun this year (described in the previous paragraph).
There also is danger of accidents, falls, blows, burns and cuts. This is due to your inclination to take chances and to act hastily or impulsively.
Solar Return Mars Conjunct natal Sun:
You will react very strongly to any acts of aggression on the part of others. You will find yourself getting involved in tense situations, especially when you are confronted with very aggressive, domineering, or competitive people. However, your personal pride will be very strong and you will be able to take care of yourself when you are attacked or criticized by others.
The relationship with your mother and with women in general will be very favorable and balanced. You will be able to count on their support for your projects in most cases.
Moon trine Jupiter:
You will feel a sense of well-being and contentment all year. Your emotions will be very positive and you will be optimistic, happy, and generous. As a result you will earn the appreciation of people in general, increase your popularity and receive spontaneous, willing help from others, especially women.
You will have good fortune in the things that you undertake. This will be mainly due to your sincere and positive attitude. This will also spread to the financial area, where you will probably gain more income. In addition, the atmosphere in your home will be very positive and harmonious. Existing differences and disagreements could disappear during this time, and you will find the support and harmony that you need. The relationship with your mother as well as other women in your life will be very positive.
Solar Return Moon Conjunct natal Pluto:>
Your relationship with the public, particularly with women, will arouse powerful feelings in you which will cause you to change and transform in some way. You could react to the emotional demonstrations of other people in a somewhat violent and uncontrolled way. In addition, your relationship with your family, especially with your mother, could provoke increased tension in you.
Solar Return 4th house cusp in or within 3 degrees of natal 10th house:
You will rely on the support of your family to help you achieve the goals you have proposed for this year.
Your work activity will be influenced by and tied, in some way, to your loved ones. You could find yourself following in your parents' footsteps during this year or you may receive favors and credits due to their influence. Your success will be realized later, in the final months of this solar year.
This all just makes me laugh, because while my mom is supportive in some things...she is not so supportive of the major ones that would say, involve my changing jobs and/or moving away. It's not in her best interests to support me on that, you know?
Anyhoo: romance good, job ick, temper ick, brain up and down, family bizarrely happy for me, money--who knows.
