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.

Feb 2, 2000 (Jan 6, 2000 to Mar 1, 2000) Nep Sqr Vesta
You may become caught up in fantasies or illusions about your work or employment at this time. You might dwell on impractical ideas and interests rather than getting down to hard work. Doubts, fears, and uncertainty concerning your own abilities or feeling unclear as to what kind of work or project could spark your enthusiasm is likely now. You may become captivated with a new interest or hobby which tempts you to escape from work which you find boring or unsuitable. Or there may be situations in your job where you question the objectives of co-workers or professionals. For instance, you may doubt the integrity or truthfulness of persons in your workplace and imagine or perceive all sorts of deception or behind the scene activities taking place. Since most of your feelings may be speculative, you should avoid making any major changes or disruptions in your job at this time.
Feb 8, 2000 (Feb 7, 2000 to Apr 11, 2000) Sun 1st H.
During this time you can make a strong statement to the world about who you are and your presence has a more noticeable effect upon the people in your environment. If you want to make an impression on others, now is a fine time to do so. People recognize you and are likely to follow your lead, or at least they stay out of your way more readily than usual. You are likely to feel more confident and vital now.
However, you may be so preoccupied with yourself and your own desires that you unintentionally ignore other people and their needs.
Feb 9, 2000 (Feb 8, 2000 to Mar 4, 2000) Ven 12th H.
You are not likely to be very gregarious or sociable now, and you may feel that you cannot be openly affectionate with someone you care about. You may have romantic yearnings for someone that is unavailable to you, and great discretion regarding this relationship may be called for.
On the other hand, a friend or loved one may need you very much. You could be called upon to give to or care for them without getting much personal enjoyment or pleasure at the moment, except through serving them in an unselfish way.
Feb 25, 2000 (Feb 25, 2000 to Feb 26, 2000)Nep Conj Moon/Nep
You can be in an extremely sensitive state right now, open, vulnerable, without barriers to protect you. It can be a good time to get away from it all, to be quiet and get some rest. Even your physical strength could be reduced if you remain too open to the world around you. In spite of your compassion for others, you need to take care of yourself first. You can be imaginative, even inspired, if you give yourself the freedom to focus on your dreams.
Feb 25, 2000 (Feb 18, 2000 to Mar 26, 2000)Pal Oppos Sat
You may encounter disapproval and negative reactions from authority figures or business professionals regarding your viewpoint and/or your creative plans. Difficult decisions may need to be made which will directly effect your public reputation and career status. For example, you may be deeply involved with a business assignment and your employer or superior imposes strict and rigid guidelines on the project, thus delaying or inhibiting your ability to make concrete achievements. You experience suspicion, doubt and worry over your job performance and feel you must take decisive action to ensure your position in the corporation.
This can also be a time when there is anguish over an ill or elderly parent who depends upon your care and concern.
Feb 26, 2000 (Feb 15, 2000 to Mar 7, 2000)Jup/Plu Oppos Ura
You are not about to put up with any opposition now. You can be adamant in your beliefs and highly resistant to anyone who tries to disagree with you. This is a time when you learn more about your needs to be free and your capacity to express yourself as a unique individual. But freedom has its price so be prepared to factor that into your plans.
Feb 27, 2000 (Feb 27, 2000 to Feb 28, 2000)Jup Conj Moon/Ven
You can feel especially attractive now, comfortable with yourself and the impact that you have on others. People respond to you favorably, treating you gently and with kindness. Your people skills can be functioning very well now so that you always make the right moves. It is a good time to receive gifts. If no one gives you one, buy yourself something nice.
Feb 27, 2000 (Feb 24, 2000 to Mar 1, 2000)Juno Conj Sat
You can count on the support of your mate or spouse in pursuing personal or career ambitions at this time. You and your partner can work effectively on meeting the goals and expectations in your relationship as well as in the public domain. Commitment to each other is quite strong and enduring. However, too much seriousness or concern over long-term plans for the partnership or professional interests may cause a problem in your personal relations with one another. If the relationship is going through a difficult time, this period may help bond you together despite your differences. You want the world to view your marriage or partnership as respectful, established and secure.
If you are not in a relationship now, you may meet someone who is responsible, practical and reliable. A possible May/December romance may begin at this time.
Feb 27, 2000 (Feb 20, 2000 to Mar 4, 2000)Ceres Trine Jup
Fortunate experiences and displays of generosity are in abundance. General good fortune and successful financial gains are obtained through expanding your creative or career goals. Your personal needs and caretaking abilities are in tune with your loved ones, and great strides can be made in fulfilling family needs. This is a time when legal affairs should prove to be beneficial, and there is a possibility of an inheritance or of receiving much needed financial assistance at this time. The sharing of household responsibilities and nurturing needs are cooperative and easily handled. Health matters may improve under this astrological influence. Benefits may also come through your involvement with children, or a desire to expand your family unit could be felt at this time.
Feb 28, 2000 (Feb 26, 2000 to Mar 1, 2000)Sun/Nep Oppos Ura
One side of this influence is that you are highly inspired, imaginative and creative. There may be no limits to your creativity now. The other side is that you are confused, needing freedom but wanting others to care for you. Be flexible and open and you will be guided as to what course to take in the future.
Feb 29, 2000 (Feb 28, 2000 to Mar 1, 2000) Ven Sxtil MC
Meeting people that can benefit your career, getting together with colleagues, or getting to know your superiors on a more personal, friendly basis is quite likely at this time. Take advantage of all opportunities to socialize with the people you have professional ties with for the outcome is likely to be quite positive.
Mar 1, 2000 (Feb 29, 2000 to Mar 2, 2000)Mars Trine MC
You can make your influence felt at this time and any efforts you make to advance your career or other important long-range goals will be very effective. Independent action, self-reliance, or taking on more of a leadership position are favored now. You have the green light!
Mar 2, 2000 (Feb 28, 2000 to Mar 4, 2000)Vesta Trine Plu
This is a favorable time for making changes in your professional and personal life in order to have greater control and to advance your ambitions. You can work well with a group or team effort to cooperate on common goals, or even work in solitude on a long-held or passionate interest that you want to develop. Your will and better judgment guides you to work on productive activities which create opportunities for growth or power. This can be a period of exciting transition in your work endeavors or personal interests where you can discover what you truly find meaningful and important. Changes that take place in your personal life may increase your awareness of the need to heal past issues and distribute power more equally in your relationships.
Mar 2, 2000 (Feb 13, 2000 to Mar 21, 2000)Ura Trine Sun
This is an upbeat time, with increased enthusiasm and creativity. There is little resistance to your creative, spontaneous inclinations. This is a wonderful time for creative work and expression of any kind. Dance, music, artistic creativity, and scientific work are all benefited. Originality is highlighted and you are able to compose, design, and create things with fresh insight and originality.
You feel less constrained and hemmed in by circumstances and are able to enjoy activities with greater zest and spirit than usual. You can develop greater agility and fluency at this time. Dancers and musicians, for example, often develop more free-flowing, graceful styles and techniques during this period.
You are less resistant to change than usual now. You find it easier to accept new ideas and explore innovative areas. This is particularly helpful if you are normally conservative and rigid in your approach to life. Take advantage of this time to loosen up, develop greater enthusiasm, creativity, and gracefulness, and explore progressive, innovative ideas and activities.
Mar 2, 2000 (Feb 26, 2000 to Mar 7, 2000) Jup Conj Ven
If there is something that you have always wanted but felt that you could not afford, then your wait is over. You will buy it now, whether you can afford it or not! The urge to splurge is irresistible now, and your desires for good things can turn into cravings under this astrological influence. If you are dieting, it is likely that you will need to ease up a little. Of course, you should try to avoid unhealthful indulgence but asceticism is not in order either. This is a time to enjoy yourself.
You are in a fun-loving mood. Parties and other social occasions, especially of a festive nature, are likely to turn out better than expected. If there isn't a good party to go to, you may decide to throw one yourself - and be glad you did, because it will be fun.
You almost certainly will spend more money than you should, but you may also receive a bonus or gift. You have a lucky streak now that can bring you unexpected benefits - but don't use that as an excuse to throw it away at the races!
Mar 2, 2000 (Feb 26, 2000 to Mar 7, 2000)Jup Conj Ceres
During this period you may overextend yourself to loved ones with generosity, care, and nurturing. This is a good time to gain insight and understanding into your own personal needs as well as those of the people closest to you. You can begin to become more of a contributing factor in the education or spiritual upbringing of your children. You can explore ways to instill positive family values and principles into your domestic life at this time. There are also possibilities that you will take on a greater role in caretaking responsibilities, possibly through the concerns of a distant relative or someone else who openly requests your aid and direction.
Mar 3, 2000 (Mar 2, 2000 to Mar 4, 2000)Merc Trine Merc
Conversations and sharing plans and ideas with others are very fruitful now. You understand what others are telling you, and you make yourself clearly understood also. This is a favorable time for getting your message across to others via writing, speaking, or advertising.
Mar 3, 2000 (Mar 1, 2000 to Mar 5, 2000)Merc/Nep Oppos Ura
It may be a little difficult to keep your concentration now. The world can be spinning around you and your mind can also be turning away from the path of reality. You can use this time to make breakthroughs in your perceptions. Be sure to keep notes and see what you can make of it when the dust clears.
Mar 3, 2000 (Mar 3, 2000 to Mar 4, 2000)Merc Oppos Merc/Nep
It can be easy to tell a little white lie today or to gloss over the truth. Others, also, may not be completely up front with you. You do have the ability to communicate with imagination now and to talk with great compassion.
Mar 3, 2000 (Mar 2, 2000 to Mar 4, 2000)Merc Trine Nep
You are inspired creatively, artistically, or spiritually at this time. Your imagination, intuition, and psychic sensitivity are high now, and you find yourself wanting to paint or listen to music, daydream, or fantasize rather than concentrate on practical matters.
Mar 3, 2000 (Mar 3, 2000 to Mar 4, 2000) Ven Trine Sun
Relaxation, enjoyment, and pleasure are emphasized now. This is not a time to push yourself or to be involved in activities that require intense competition or a great expenditure of energy. Cooperative, harmonious personal and professional relationships are more important to you at this time. You feel like socializing and being friendly.
Mar 4, 2000 (Mar 3, 2000 to Mar 5, 2000)Ven Oppos Mars
Relationships with the opposite sex are intensified now. You experience strong feelings of attraction and desire and, if you are unhappy in your sexual life, you can be very tense and angry "for no reason" now. You may be tempted to act on an infatuation.
Mar 4, 2000 (Mar 3, 2000 to Mar 5, 2000) Ven Conj Asc
At this time you come across in an appealing, charming, openly affectionate manner which is likely to win you new friends and admirers. You make an excellent first impression now. This is a very favorable time for doing something to enhance your appearance such as getting a hair cut or purchasing new clothing.
Mar 4, 2000 (Mar 3, 2000 to Apr 24, 2000) Ven 1st H.
Your desire for harmony, beauty, and gracious surroundings is stronger than usual and you avoid unpleasantness as much as possible. You're inclined to use charm, gentle coaxing, and loving persuasion rather than more direct, forceful methods to get what you want. At this time, pleasure and affection are more important to you than work, and you may be rather lazy, but pleasantly and cheerfully so.
Mar 4, 2000 (Mar 3, 2000 to Mar 5, 2000) Sun Sqr MC
You are at cross purposes with the people in your environment who are most able to benefit you. You tend to come on too strong, to be oblivious to others' needs and intentions, or to act inappropriately now. You feel an urgency to take positive steps to achieve your goals, but be certain that you are not overstepping yourself, as this can cause considerable enmity at this time.
Mar 4, 2000 (Mar 2, 2000 to Mar 6, 2000)Ven/Ura Oppos Mars
This can be a very exciting time of social, sexual and creative discovery. You may be willing to take risks and will likely connect in new ways, perhaps with new and very different people. You need something fresh and original to keep you interested at this time.
Mar 4, 2000 (Mar 4, 2000 to Mar 5, 2000)Sat Oppos Mars/Jup
You can take advantage of your organizational skills to help you choose the best strategies for achieving your goals. It is important for you to be patient as rushing things now could get you in trouble. If you keep your vision and plan carefully, you can succeed in your ventures. However, you could also experience the doubts, fears and delays of others which can inhibit the progress of your projects. Stay cool, stay on course, and take your time.
Mar 5, 2000 (Mar 2, 2000 to Mar 8, 2000) Juno Sqr Moon
Emotional tension in a marital or love relationship is likely at this time. If you have a tendency to be possessive or overprotective of your loved ones, then this behavior will be more pronounced during this period. It is possible you may experience tearful and frustrating moments caused by unconscious feelings of jealousy, rejection and oversensitivity in an intimate relationship. Your moods can be so changeable that your partner has difficulty assessing what your true motivations are. Your lover or spouse may be afraid of upsetting you emotionally and, therefore, suppress his or her inner feelings about your actions. On the other hand, your mother, wife, or girlfriend may be transmitting mixed signals in their emotional dealings with you.
Mar 5, 2000 (Mar 5, 2000 to Mar 6, 2000)Sun Conj Moon/Sat
Do your duty with dignity and honor. You can do what you must with your head held high. If you have fears this is a time to shine a light on them and move beyond old limitations and doubts. Act confident even in the face of doubt.
Mar 5, 2000 (Mar 3, 2000 to Mar 7, 2000)Sun/Plu Conj Sat
Power struggles are one possibility here, but you can use them to bring yourself to a higher level of efficiency. You might want to look at your responsibilities with the intention of listing your priorities and reducing your efforts in the less important areas.
Mar 5, 2000 (Mar 5, 2000 to Mar 6, 2000)Ven Oppos Mars/Ura
It can be fun now to be different, to be with different kinds of people, to break the rules, and to go outside the old limits. Your inventive and rebellious side may be fun for you to explore right now and can even provide some pleasant returns.
Mar 9, 2000 (Feb 20, 2000 to Mar 30, 2000)Ura Oppos Mars
Courageous and undaunted, you step boldly forth, assert yourself, and charge ahead. If you are normally shy and receding, you will burst out of your shell now. If you are a strong and aggressive person, then you will try to take full command of every aspect of your life and force weaker personalities to submit to you and support you.
Impatient and dynamic, you work feverishly to bring projects that have been ongoing for some time to a rapid completion. You take on Herculean tasks and expect to accomplish them almost overnight. You feel tired of waiting for the things you want, and you charge forth to claim them. Find a task to do and do it! This is one of the worst times to take a relaxing vacation because you won't be able to relax; you have too much that you want to do right now. If you do vacation, activities like sky diving or white water rafting suit your taste now.
This can be a volatile and explosive time. If you have a bad temper, then you will need to do everything possible to stay in control of yourself at this time. Pent up anger and hostility surfaces, and relatively minor things can cause you to become upset and angry. You are particularly prone to arguments, disagreements, and power struggles with others. You are inclined to not realize how pushy you are, and others may rebel against you. Make bold steps forward now and work hard, but try not to be inconsiderate of others in the process. Energetic physical activity is almost a must and will make you feel better and accomplish more.
Also, you may attract domineering people to yourself, and you may need to assert yourself. This problem is particularly likely if you try to repress and deny the powerful energies that you are dealing with now. Be forthright and direct (that should be easy) but also try to be tactful too (which is not so easy).
Your daredevil attitude may cause you to try dangerous activities or take risks that you normally would not consider. Do be reasonable, however, as your impatience and boldness makes you more accident-prone than usual.
Business decisions and career decisions now tend to be too risky and also warped by your impatient need to accomplish everything in an unrealistically short amount of time.
Mar 9, 2000 (Mar 4, 2000 to Mar 14, 2000)Jup Conj Vesta
Enthusiasm may be at an all-time high, and you set your sights on doing something meaningful and profitable in order to expand business, professional, or personal aspirations. Dedication, commitment, and courage allows you to get absorbed in any task, endeavor, or venture which you conceive has real value and substance. If your work or a personal ambition is unfulfilling, you may search for greener pastures or look for ways to improve your current situation. You may gain insight through education, travel, business courses, or training in a specific field of interest to you. You will want to convince colleagues and professionals that you will extend yourself and serve them to the best of your abilities. Since some of your aims and objectives can involve work or interests outside family and romantic relationships, you will have to be open and honest with loved ones, who may be feeling a little left out in the cold.
Mar 9, 2000 (Feb 20, 2000 to Aug 16, 2000) Ura 1st H.
During this entire period (and especially at the beginning) you will be breaking out of old patterns and ways of relating to the world, which can cause quite a bit of disruption in your life. People who do not want you to change and who are invested in maintaining the status quo are likely to be particularly upset. You seem more erratic, spontaneous, and unreliable, even to yourself. You are experimenting with different ways of being and may adopt a more unconventional or individualistic attitude. Your inner restlessness and need to make changes may also impel you to relocate or make some other radical departure from the life you've been living until now.
Mar 9, 2000 (Feb 20, 2000 to Mar 31, 2000)Ura Conj Asc
During this time period, you cast off some of your old roles and adopt new ones. You take a fresh approach to life and your personality undergoes major changes. Your role and position in life now strikes you as limiting, and you experiment with new life styles. For example, you may decide to dress differently, change your hair style, or act in a more spontaneous, less conventional manner. You will find yourself tired of being "Bill the businessman", "George the hippie", "Sally the mother and housewife", or "Jane the quiet, intelligent one". Whatever image and role you play in life is likely to be shattered at this time. George the Hippie cuts his hair and Sally the mother takes a vacation to have time for herself.
Now is the time to break out of some of the molds that you have become accustomed to. Even if your role and position in life is natural and fulfilling to you, there is still the need to explore new attitudes, approaches, and styles now. Don't hold back this impulse; if you try to refrain from making changes, you will find yourself becoming very restless and dissatisfied with your current situation.
This time period is an unstable one, and you may encounter some unexpected changes. It is possible that your life will not change dramatically, but the possibility of unexpected changes in career or family life often occur during this astrological influence. Be prepared for unexpected major changes if they arise.
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.
Mar 11, 2000 (Feb 10, 2000 to Aug 15, 2000)Nep Qucnx Plu
Deep forces in the collective are at work, which you may experience as a subtle dissolution or disintegration of beliefs, attitudes, and attachments. These changes are profound, yet rather gradual. Nevertheless, adjustments and resistance to relinquishing the old can be stressful. Spiritual renewal through inner exploration, service, and a concern for external values is the most positive possibility at this time. If you are not so inclined, however, this can be a distressing period during which a subtle, chronic unease or disease plagues you.
