Seeing your chart, I can understand why you responded the way you did to some of the posters as well as the dramatic title of your thread (It's why I clicked on it so good job there)
First off, I see that you have a "negative" nature; not in the sense of inherent badness but more in the sense on what things you focus on in the world around you. The reasoning I have for this, is that you have a Capricorn rising which would make you see the world through a more somber and "realistic" lens as well as your ascendant ruler's location in the watery Piscean sign which is known to be less robust in it's ability to handle pressure as say the sign Leo or Aries would. Coupled with this you have Mars aspecting your Saturn through the opposition (a discordiant aspect) which may add more pugnaciousness to your character and a desire to bite back those that offend or breach your defenses in any undesirable way and we have a mix. In a symbolic way, we also see the tendency of others (opposition/7th house analogy) challenging or attacking (Mars) you (Saturn). Mars/Saturn is also an aspect of squelched or frustrated anger so that you may also feel a sense of impotence in regards to your more aggressive and assertive tendencies.
Another feature of your chart is the immense strength and prominence of the moon; She is in hayz, domiciled and angular and is also just leaving the Sun's beams. The moon is highly impressionable to her environment, governs the irrational mind (imaginations, desires, cravings), "prominent" women, intuition, changeability and travel, among other things. Do to her highly changeable nature we therefore can say she bestows sensitivity to your character as well as perhaps the irrational mind over the rational (Mercury is not as powerful as Moon in this chart). She would bestow her nature upon you so that you also possess the traits of sensitivity, irrationality (this may mean that you are more imaginative/emotive than logical for instance), and high impressionability to the environment. Configured to the 7th house cusp we see just how much off an influence others have on your emotional equilibrium. This is a strongly interpersonal aspect, and bridging this along with your asc ruler + aspects we see how a somber, sensitive person who has a tendency to attract conflict may paint her world after awhile.
If you want to know why this current period might be more challenging for you then we can look at some of the transits that have occurred to you in the recent period.
- Mars/Saturn/Antares conjunction perfected on your midheaven and was in conjunction to Jupiter about mid August. This config has a very strong leaning towards callous violence and conflict and it's culmination may have indicate that the general atmosphere of your life at that time had this all- pervading warring energy in it, exacerbating any feuds or conflicts with people.
- Saturn is making an opposition to your Mercury presently and Mercury is another planet of cognition as this governs the rational mind of logic and speech. This would certainly make your mental space a more serious and foreboding environment as usual as Saturn is casting his restrictive rays directly to your Mercury.
- There is also the relevance of Pluto making a close conjunction to your ascendant which brings his direct energies on your personhood and "orientation to life". I pulled this little description from another forum (solunars) regarding Pluto; I like how much fluff is taken out of it:
WHAT INCREASES OR DECREASES WITH PLANET’S ANGULARITY: Disaffinity with rules, categories, structures; desire to relate without imposed qualification; need for immunity from outside pressure.
WHAT IS COLORED WHEN THE PLANET IS ASPECTED: “Get away from it all” urge; need to be independent of cultural trappings & labels; search for existential meaning.
HOW A PLANET IT ASPECTS IS AFFECTED: “All or nothing:” strongly intensifies or thoroughly diminishes; strains. Creates powerful need that planet’s expression be free of others’ arbitrary limitations.
It also is having a direct effect on your strong Moon (and mind planet) through an opposition (the most difficult aspect of them all) and by virtue of the fact of it's rulership of the 7th, your relationships or also taken the a strong hit from this Planet.
Both your planets of mentality being afflicted by the most stereotypically serious planets will be no walk in the park, that's for certain.
Transits are just one aspect of the many predictive techniques but I think I have made my point clearly enough as to why this current period of time is so hellish for you.
