BASIC FORECAST Sample Printout

This report and the Advanced Forecast Report, (see previous page) are our most popular forecast reports. You can run either a transit-to-natal or progressed-to-natal report; you cannot combine transits and progressions in one report but you can run them as separate reports. Major aspects (conjunctions, oppositions, squares, trines, and sextiles) formed between the transiting and natal planets are interpreted, and also planets through the houses. Outer planet transits are treated in detail and inner planet transit interpretations are short and succinct.

Your Astro-Forecast begins on the next page. If the time period for an interpretation is, for example, given as "July 1, 2000 (June 15, 2000 to July 15, 2000)", then it starts in mid-June, reaches greatest intensity around July 1, and ends in mid-July. The first date listed is the time when the influence has reached maximum strength; we can call this date the "peak date". The influence starts on the beginning date, gradually increases in strength until the peak date is reached, and then it gradually fades out until the ending date is reached. An influence may last for as little as a few days to as long as half a year or so.

You may also notice that the same interpretation shows up periodically during the year; this is not unusual. In some cases the beginning and ending dates of the 2 influences are the same; the only difference between the 2 interpretations is the peak date. This means that this particular influence has two peak dates instead of one. It is even possible for there to be three or more peak dates for the same astrological influence. To eliminate redundant interpretations, you may be informed that the astrological influence also occurred earlier and that you should refer back to the previous occurrence of this interpretation.

You may be wondering what the abbreviations after the dates are. For example, you may see "Sat Conj Plu", "Ura Trine Nep", etc. These abbreviations are given for the benefit of astrologers and they show the astrological factor that is in effect.

We hope you enjoy your Astro-Forecast. For the benefit of astrologers, some technical details are given below.

At this time losses, burdens, cumbersome responsibilities, and/or an overall sense of struggle weighs you down considerably. You may feel depressed or oppressed, unhappy with yourself and your life for no particular reason, and older than your years.

This is not a good time to make binding contracts or agreements. You are apt to be too pessimistic or limited in your thinking to do yourself justice. This is also a time when you may have to deal with some unfinished business from the past before you can move on. Finish all jobs and clear out debts if you can.

Oct 13, 2002         (Oct 6, 2002 to Oct 20, 2002) Jup Trine MC

Fortunate circumstances assist you in your career. Obstacles and impediments seem to disappear and your work progresses very smoothly. This is a time of steady growth and progress, combined with an enjoyable and harmonious atmosphere. You feel good about yourself and the direction of your life. You feel that your work is meaningful, further expanding your sense of well-being and happiness at this time. Unusual or highly unexpected events do not occur but the gradual change in tone and quality of your life brings about a much improved situation for you.

You may feel so comfortable during this time period that you do little to take full advantage of the opportunities that are available to you. Do not sit back and watch this influence pass you by!

Note that the precise timing of this astrological influence is very dependent on the exact birth time, so the dates given are accurate only if your birth time is very accurate.

Oct 14, 2002     9 AM(Oct 12, 2002 to Oct 15, 2002)Mars Trine Sat

Your concentration is excellent now and you are serious about your work. You want to focus on real accomplishment and avoid frivolity and distractions. You may fruitfully tackle difficult, disagreeable tasks or work that usually frustrates you, for your patience and ability to do painstaking work is brought out now. Self-control and self-discipline are required of you at this time but, fortunately, they yield positive results in the long run.

Oct 14, 2002     9 AM(Oct 13, 2002 to Oct 15, 2002)Merc Qucnx Ven

Misunderstandings with a friend or someone you are usually in harmony with are likely to arise now, especially if you feel you are being taken for granted. You are more acutely aware of differences in style, taste, or values. You will want your personal preferences to be appreciated and taken into account.

Oct 15, 2002         (Oct 14, 2002 to Nov 16, 2002) Sun 8th H.

Joint financial affairs and investments are likely to be an issue at this time, and it is a good time to clarify each party's expectations and to take care of legal business, insurance, wills, and so on.

On a personal level, there is a desire to intensify the level of intimacy and honesty in your closest relationships and to clear away anything which is impeding the deeper union you seek.

Oct 15, 2002    10 PM(Oct 14, 2002 to Oct 16, 2002) Sun Sxtil Ura

Acting on impulse, changing your usual routine, improvising and using your intuition rather than following a prescribed, logical way of doing things is called for now. The tempo of your life accelerates now. Expect a rather inconstant, unpredictable, but interesting time.

Oct 17, 2002    11 AM(Oct 16, 2002 to Oct 18, 2002)Merc Trine Jup

This is a good time to travel, especially to places you've never experienced before, where you will be exposed to new ideas and different ways of looking at the world. Studying new concepts is also favored; your ability to understand abstract ideas and your desire to grow intellectually is strong now. Anything that broadens your world appeals to you at this time. You are interested in the big picture and have less attention and interest in details.

Oct 18, 2002    12 AM(Oct 16, 2002 to Oct 19, 2002)Mars Qucnx Moon

Domestic disputes caused by interference from outside agents are indicated. For example, you may be bringing work home with you and then unconsciously venting your hidden resentments and frustrations on innocent people.

You are subject to fevers or infections now, fueled in part by emotional irritability. Letting off steam in whatever nondestructive ways you know would be very beneficial.

Oct 19, 2002     6 AM(Oct 18, 2002 to Oct 20, 2002) Merc Sqr Merc

Intellectual disagreements or differences of opinion and viewpoints arise now. You may have to speak your mind in a way that challenges or unnerves someone else. However, your mind is very active and sharp, and your reasoning power is good, so this is a good time to do mental work.

Oct 20, 2002     9 AM(Oct 18, 2002 to Oct 21, 2002)Mars Qucnx Ven

Ambivalence or disagreeableness in a close relationship arises now. An old friend or lover who is rather disturbing to your peace of mind may contact you, or you may feel uncertain about where you are going in a particular relationship.

You may aggravate or pick at a friend or loved one in the misguided belief that you can change things. At this point, however, it is unlikely that your words or actions will create happiness or the desired outcome. Try to be good natured about any differences that are apparent to you now, and let it pass.

Oct 22, 2002     7 AM(Oct 21, 2002 to Oct 23, 2002) Merc Sxtil MC

Making decisions or long-range plans is favored now. Your judgment is sound. Making worthwhile professional contacts, reaching out to others who can help you in your work, and taking care of business in an orderly, clear way are also likely.

Oct 22, 2002     5 PM(Oct 21, 2002 to Oct 23, 2002) Sun Sqr Sat

This is a time of considerable frustration and your desires or efforts appear to be thwarted or at least delayed. Relationships with men and people in authority may be particularly uncomfortable. Also, you have more self-doubt than usual; your mood is somber and rather self-critical. This is a good time to take stock of your life, to see how you are limiting and holding yourself back, and to determine your next steps. But do not attempt to press forward now, and don't take whatever setbacks you experience too much too heart.

Oct 24, 2002     9 PM(Oct 24, 2002 to Oct 25, 2002)Merc Trine Sun

You are very clear and perceptive now. It's a good time to make a decision or come to an agreement, negotiate, exchange your views with others, or present your case. If you are in a profession dealing with words, ideas, or communication, this is a very productive time for you. Ideas flow, and you express your thoughts well.

Oct 25, 2002     1 AM(Oct 24, 2002 to Oct 26, 2002)Sun Oppos Moon

Your feelings, emotional needs, and desires for closeness and a sense of belonging come to the fore now. You give your home, personal relationships, and inner life more attention. Problems you may have been avoiding in these areas are brought into focus.

Oct 25, 2002     2 AM(Oct 24, 2002 to Oct 26, 2002)Merc Trine Asc

Communications are excellent now. You come across clearly and present yourself articulately. Public speaking, interviews, and other transactions with the public are favored. Conversations you have at this time go smoothly, and an agreement can be reached.

Oct 25, 2002     2 AM(Oct 24, 2002 to Oct 26, 2002)Merc Sxtil Mars

You are eager to discuss your thoughts and plans with others at this time and you may have a very fruitful brainstorming session, a spirited debate, or a very active meeting with others in which things really get accomplished. You are verbally assertive and can present your own plan or idea quite convincingly.

Oct 26, 2002    10 AM(Oct 24, 2002 to Oct 27, 2002)Mars Trine Jup

At this time you will want to branch out; you have the energy to do more and take on more challenges. This is a very good time to begin implementing the plans and promises that you have made to yourself, as any new endeavor is likely to succeed. A new health regimen, actions taken to advance professionally, or anything you do to move toward achieving a cherished goal or ideal goes well now.

Oct 26, 2002     2 PM(Oct 25, 2002 to Oct 27, 2002) Sun Oppos Ven

You are feeling particularly affectionate now and the company of your love partner or very close friends is important to you. This is not a time for solitary activity. Sharing, harmonizing, and love are the themes now. However, if you are not happy in your personal life, your problems may seem especially pressing at this time.

Oct 27, 2002     9 AM(Oct 26, 2002 to Oct 28, 2002)Merc Sxtil Ura

You will want a break from the predictability of your usual routine and methods. You're in the mood to experiment and to learn something new. Offbeat or original ideas excite you and you will seek people who can offer you a different way of looking at things. Discovery, inventiveness, and spontaneity are major themes now.

Oct 27, 2002         (Oct 26, 2002 to Nov 15, 2002) Merc 8th H.

Communication and negotiations regarding joint finances, shared assets and investments, and property or anything else you own in common with another person, are likely now. It is a good time to get such affairs in order. Discussions about death are also likely to arise, both over legalities (wills, inheritances, and so on), and the more emotional, personal aspects of it.

Oct 29, 2002     2 AM(Oct 27, 2002 to Oct 30, 2002)Ven Trine Merc

This is a good time to schedule social activities or even business meetings where tact and friendliness would be a plus. You act as a diplomat and harmonizer between people with differing viewpoints. Also, attending cultural events such as an art show or a play is favored. Thoughts of love, an appreciation for beauty, and an aesthetic enjoyment of your surroundings are brought to the fore. A short pleasure trip would also be beneficial now.

Oct 29, 2002     7 AM(Oct 28, 2002 to Oct 30, 2002) Sun Sxtil Plu

There are opportunities for deep sharing and powerful, meaningful contacts with others, especially people who share common goals or ideals. An opportunity for a leadership role is also likely.

Oct 29, 2002     5 PM(Oct 28, 2002 to Oct 31, 2002) Ven Conj Nep

Your romantic imagination is strong now. Dreams of an idealized "true love" or feelings of compassion and oneness with others emerge strongly at this time.

Your perception of people gets rather hazy; you tend to see them through rose-colored glasses. It is best not to make firm commitments at this time.

If you have creative or artistic inclinations, your work will blossom. You can come up with some really lovely, inspiring images.

Oct 30, 2002     9 AM(Oct 28, 2002 to Oct 31, 2002) Mars Sqr Merc

Verbal battles, disputes, and heated debates are very likely at this time because you speak your mind without much forethought, tact, or consideration of consequences. Right now you will say the things you usually only think, especially to people you disagree with. Also, you are quite impatient and easily frustrated and are inclined to move about too quickly and abruptly, which can cause accidents. Unless you slow your pace down a bit, this time period can be quite a headache.
