Diana's Monthly Aquarius Forecast for October 2014
SHAKING OFF THE COBWEBS
New potentials are in the wind until the 23rd. The Sun is in a more outgoing, expansive area which tends to raise the spirits and you see fresh possibilities outside of the routine box. Some of you may have itchy feet, and with the vibrations increasing opportunities to escape the daily grind, this is a good time to get out and about more and try new things. Travel or distant horizons could be emphasized and you may be making plans.
PLOTS AND PLANS
Until the 11th discussions, correspondence and ideas may revolve around short-term plans or longer term considerations like where you are going from here in life. Career, a new enterprise, or those who may facilitate your aims could be highlighted. You may find your goals and schemes are being validated or rejected by the by the way things are unfolding across the wider stage – so keep your ear to the ground. You will be putting mental effort into expressing yourself in the best way you can so as to get the result you desire. Vehicles, transport or communications equipment may also be on your mind.
From the 11th Mercury retrogrades into Libra focusing your mind on distant places, travel, or another type of unfamiliar environment. You’ll tend to be thinking bigger and becoming more aware of fresh potential, or a distant horizon. This could be a good time to refresh your mental palette and think in bright new colours. A plan may be forming in your mind. There may be a breath of wind from further afield or guidance from those with specialist knowledge or just someone with a refreshing slant on things. Mercury enjoys this communicative sector which also emphasizes higher learning, publications and the legal side of things. Another way this transit might work is you take the opportunity to beat the drum about something, get the word out, be the guide or the guided, the informer or the informed.
Until the 24th Venus supports relationships with those far away, or from a different background. You are more likely to connect with knowledge or expertise which balances your perspective and helps you get the bigger picture. Travel with a partner is possible. You yourself may be valued or admired for your knowledge, know-how or guidance and this may be a good time for putting the word out on to a bigger stage. Publications or education could be emphasized or benefit you materially. You and someone may be on a bit of a learning curve together.
From the 24th Venus is helping to create more favourable circumstances with authority figures, like bosses, parents who will be positively emphasized as they tend to see you in a good light. There could be an ally – possibly a female – or just someone you feel close to no matter whether they are socially above you or not, who is invaluable to your success or who facilitates an ambition. You yourself could be the one who takes a firm but friendly stand and enables another to achieve their goals.
THE RIGHT IMPRESSION
From the 23rd, the Solar energy theme means you will be taking your targets or overall direction more seriously or be more aware of outer image, how you present yourself and the impression you are making on others, or how something is representing you.
You may have to be more aware of the rules imposed by officials, parents, bureaucracy and anyone else to whom you have responsibilities. The overall idea is to project a good image and be consistent and responsible as you go forwards. Reputation or how you are packaging something may be emphasized.
Until the 26th Mars has entered a very future-orientated and sociable area of your Solar chart. You will tend to be the initiator with projects or you have a lot on your plate because of a group with interests or aims in common. Mars can be a bit pushy, so, on the flip side, there may be tensions between you and a friend or associate. Due to certain others, life becomes more demanding or annoying and you may have to be on the ball, competitive and decisive. Just avoid being hasty and don’t allow others to tire you out or push you into something you don’t want. This is a more progressive phase when things which have been shelved, sometimes for a long time, can start to move forwards again. Very technology orientated so things like the internet and the paraphernalia that goes with it could be emphasized.
Time to get the ball rolling.
SERVING THE COMMON GOOD
From the 26th Mars is in a more inward and private area suggesting things could be busier behind the scenes or in a separate bubble with others. I see this area as a chrysalis or cocoon within which something is developing or growing. This is a dynamic energy and so you may be putting yourself out for something bigger than you are. But that’s alright for this is a karmic house which is about selflessness.
This Mars transit will encourage a more self-reflective mood where you will be mulling things over whilst in the midst of other activities. Mars here can dip the vitality and you may be feeling somewhat downbeat and talk yourself out of something which could lead you to the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. But you need true grit to ride out the obstacles and get to it.
This Mars transit will also stimulate the unconscious and your imagination as well as your ability to manifest what you want and shape things from backstage. You may feel happier if you take more time out for yourself to nurture or heal and it’s advisable to work alone whenever you can. Emotions and some frustrations may be nearer the surface and knee jerk reactions are more likely so this is something you may catch yourself doing. Those who take this onboard may just avoid falling down those old emotional holes in the road.
Because your energies are turned inwards, you are more easily affected by outside influences and can get sucked into other people’s stuff, so just be more self-protective at this time. Pay attention to dreams, visions, omens and coincidences. Mars here will also underpin practices like yoga, meditation, clairvoyance or healing, or indeed anything which takes you out of yourself so you sustain the energy and enthusiasm you need to be of service where necessary.
A PLACE IN THE WORLD
Saturn is at the top of your Solar chart until the end of the year. In slow stages, this will help you redefine your place in the world, your image and life direction. This is the time of the harvest and you will reap seeds sown in past years for good or ill. You may feel you are not doing the work, projecting the image or receiving the recognition that you deserve and you will be required to work harder at cultivating those in authority as a new structure takes shape. If you are old enough, look back about 29 yrs or 14 yrs to get the gist of what is unfolding now by recalling where you were then and what happened next. Can be quite an eye-opener! Aquarians born near the beginning of the last decanate or with 19-25 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
A NEW RAPPORT
Jupiter will be opening the way to growth through close personal or professional alliances. Because of key close associations your horizons will broaden. Others will be interested in your take on things but, equally you will probably be intrigued by theirs. Partners, colleagues, clients, friends could get you thinking more expansively and probably you will learn a lot through them.
Aquarians born in the middle 10 days or with 15-21 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.

Also, Venus and Mars will be in long transits beginning late in the year………
Venus will be in Capricorn from November 5th 2013 – March 6th 2014. Feelings may be kept under wraps or relationships tend to be within a private little bubble. There could be more going on emotionally than you are ready to admit to others. You have always been good at separating yourself from your feelings and putting your focus into the external world, a ‘worthy cause’ may be one of the ways Venus is showing herself in this part of your solar chart. Your intellect is your dominant function, so you may reason that the way a certain relationship is going is all for the best, or fated to be this way or in your best interests – or whatever. What it amounts to is a time when you cannot reach out freely in relationships and there may be something unresolved within your own psychology that needs attention before you do. However, if you have your intention firmly fixed on the highest good in a selfless way, your rewards will be great. A wonderful time for escaping to a beautiful place and to immerse yourself in nurturing activities which feel your soul.
Mars entered Libra, on December 8th 2013 to stay until July 25th 2014. An extraordinarily long transit in a very positive angle to your Sun sign. A great opportunity for you float ideas across a wider stage. To test your theories through debate, to stress-test your beliefs against reality. You will be aroused by Mars to defend your opinions robustly as you identify more strongly with your ideas at this time.
However, we are much more than what we think and believe. So, over this long period you should aim to use the Mars energy to also learn a great deal. To open your mind to new concepts and get a broader perspective on a field of interest or to feel the spirit within and spread your wings into new territories, fresh experiences which open your eyes to different dimensions of experience. Maybe you aren’t sure what to get involved in, just plunge into something different and the universe has a better chance of manifesting the appropriate experiences. This position of Mars activates higher education, legal activities travel and foreign connections and any of these areas may become more emphasized.
Jupiter is in Cancer until July 16, 2014 when it enters Leo.
Jupiter is in your area of health & work and there will be opportunities to improve things related to the job set-up, techniques or health matters – your own or another’s. The indications are that you will get the chance to learn new methods of coping on a daily basis over these periods. Employers or colleagues will tend to be more appreciative of your abilities and your contribution and work can become more fulfilling.
It’s likely that through using new techniques, the influence of service providers or different therapies that your territory physical or mental, will broaden.
Jupiter’s beneficial vibration could help your well being as you learn what does and does not work for you.. The downside is that you take on too much work or overstep the mark.
Jupiter moves into Leo, your opposite sign in mid-July 2014.
Jupiter will be opening the way to growth through close personal or professional alliances. Because of one-to-one interactions your horizons will broaden and you will learn much through them. Others will be interested in your take on things but, equally you will probably be intrigued by theirs. Partners, colleagues, clients, employees, employers could get you thinking more expansively but equally, you will be stretching their understanding into new areas. Those from a different background or with an expertise could catapult you out of your familiar mental box, link you to distant places or get you travelling more. You’ll be entertaining new possibilities as you get a broader perspective. The expansive, benevolent influence of Jupiter will boost all working or love relationships as it will facilitate a feeling of mental rapport with another. If mental rapport seals the deal for you, then some of you could take the plunge and enter into a marriage or some kind of fuller commitment to another.
Aquarians born through the whole sign will feel Jupiter’s vibration in 2014.
From 6th Oct 2012 Saturn began a 2 and a half year transit of Scorpio at the top of your Solar chart.
Slowly, this will help you redefine your place in the world, your image and life direction. You will be restructuring your outer and inner world in gradual stages over this long period. This is an opportunity to show the world what you can do, but, in the process you will have to take on more responsibilities and steadily push through obstacles to achieve your goals. This is the time of the harvest, of reaping what you have sown in the past. If you are old enough, look back about 29/30 yrs or 14/15yrs or 7/8 yrs to get the gist of what is unfolding now by recalling where you were then, decisions you made and what happened subsequently. Can be quite an eye-opener! Of course you are older and wiser now and you’ll have been through the cycle before so you know what to expect and can prepare accordingly.
You’ll also know that this is a time when perseverance is necessary related to profession and standing in the world. Aquarians born from Feb 3rd or with from 15 degrees rising will feel this vibration the most over 2014.
Uranus your ruling planet is now be working from Aries until 2019 and gradually will be changing the way you think and even the language or jargon you use. It will bestow wonderful opportunities to open your mind to new concepts, and through daily encounters expand your thinking and learn a great deal you didn’t know before. Certain knowledge may feel like quite a revelation at times. Everyday matters may have more of an edge to them and you may take up the study of something weird like astrology or filamentology or something on the leading edge in the sciences. This energy also favours, anything innovative in the field of IT or sustainable energy, or other areas where you hook-up with a group of others who share particular interests or experiences. Aquarians born 27th Jan-5th Feb or with between 8-17 degrees rising will feel this vibration the most over 2014.
The new position of Neptune means that slowly your values are changing and that a sacrifice may have to be made for something or someone worthwhile to you. On a mundane level you should be doubly careful with your finances and property matters and avoid being too idealistic when making decisions in the area of basic material security. Aquarians born 23rd-28th January or with 3-8 degrees rising will feel this vibration the most over 2014.
The life-changing force of Pluto, now in Capricorn, means regeneration from deep levels involving letting go of ingrained patterns and scenarios from the past. Updating outmoded behaviour or an old way of being clears the decks for a gradual re-birthing into new conditions and a fresh perspective. Emotionally, there will be a subtle gear-shift deep within you as the old order is crumbling and the way clears for a reinvention of yourself.
Aquarians born 30th Jan-3rd Feb or with between 10-14 degrees rising will feel this vibration the most over 2014.
