Diana's Monthly Aquarius Forecast for August 2015
Until the 23rd you’ll benefit more from the support or contribution of another in close relationship. It’s not a time to be going it alone, so central to this period, will be how to give and receive the best out of partnerships and other close associations. You and another could be bonding, teaming up or doing business together. But however it is for you, there is a stronger feeling of mutual interaction – or attraction!
Until the 8th Mercury is in your opposite sign. Communications – personal or professional, in close interactions and collaborations are highlighted and you’ll probably be sharing ideas and connecting with someone’s slant on things and even if you disagree, at least it helps you clarify your own thinking. You may be in relationship with someone whose guidance or information is valuable or you yourself may be more looked upon as the information-giver, go-between, or guide.
8th-28th discussions, ideas and research tend to be strategic and could be revealing as you drill down to fundamentals and suss things out. At times, communications could become more involved, intense, or confidential. Your thinking could focus on sensitive issues like the joint financial situation or revolve around property or possessions belonging to or shared with another. There may be more paperwork or some rethinking related to an agreement or contract. At this time, some of you may be giving confidential advice and perhaps ‘sensing’ more than thinking as your gut knowing will be stronger.
It may be that you feel quite passionate about something or someone and feelings go deep. Or, on the flip side, it’s probably easier for someone to push your buttons. Just trust your deeper instincts, stay away from ego, and try to avoid knee-jerk reactions. Get to the basics within the current conditions.
A BROADER VIEW
28th onwards – Mercury is expanding your mind and you should be entertaining options outside of the box. Discussions and or paperwork could be related to travel, higher learning 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 fresh air 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.
Apart from July 19th-August 1st when she will be more deeply involved emotionally or materially, Venus is strong in her favourite place and affairs of the heart are favoured. You and someone could be feeling a closer rapport, no matter whether it’s a personal or professional association. A special someone could come into your life and some of you could be tying the knot. But all relationships, personal, or professional tend to flow more easily. You and another could be enjoying eachother’s company or simply lending eachother a hand.
Until the 9th Mars is in a sector which emphasizes the practical side of any bright ideas. Considering how to manage, operate or fix – very practical and usually hands on also related to health and fitness. You may be more involved with skilled people, health providers tools or technology. So daily duties and methodologies are highlighted and you might have to get your head around the mechanical details. You can get a lot done if you keep up with daily duties, health matters – yours or another’s – and running repairs. Collaborations can be productive and achieve success but a co-worker or helper may try your patience. Still, it may be a small price to pay if you get your act together in the process.
From the 9th Mars in your opposite sign means personal or professional exchanges are likely to be more dynamic and lively. Because of the agenda of another, there are more physical demands put upon you to be decisive or take action. You and someone could elicit strong opinions in each-other or, conversely, maybe you feel a strong pull towards someone or they feel a strong pull towards you. Once again patience may be needed as Mars here can make you too hasty, handle someone badly, throw caution to the winds, or make a false start. So the advice would be to try to keep things on an even keel and don’t dive in head first at full revs with all guns blazing before you are sure of your ground.
From the 23rd is a gear-shifting phase, but you‘ll probably be feeling your way forwards as you intuitively sound things out. This the moment for letting go of some ballast whether that means a Spring Clean or general de-clutter. Or it could mean a more radical change in your routines related to money, property or a relationship.
A PLACE IN THE WORLD
Saturn has returned to the top of your Solar chart until September. This is a more dynamic position of Saturn and not without its challenges. But, in slow stages, as you clear the obstacles, this will aid and abet you to 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 would like and you will be required to work harder at cultivating those in authority as a new structure takes shape. This transit may also emphasis the parental or authority figures in your life.
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 from 16th February or with from 27 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
A NEW RAPPORT
Until the 11th 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.
MORE TO PLAY WITH
From the 11th Jupiter has begun his new cycle and will be putting a beneficial emphasis onto your joint financial area. Materially, your life could grow and expand through the contribution of key associations or a partnership. So this can mean more money, possessions or improved physical conditions made available to you, or that you find it easier to access them through a key relationship.
It may be a different financial strategy or set-up becomes a useful resource and it may be some kind of moral debt settled or financial debt is repaid.

What today looks like:
Starting today, and concluding on Saturday, the Moon is tussling with Saturn. The Moon sitting in Aquarius might mean a feeling which is eccentric, and idealistic in your area of appearance, and first impressions. It might be difficult to make a public appearance, or appear in front of an audience, while this tough, awkward clash continues.
Also today: continuing today, and finishing on Tuesday, Mercury is coordinating with Uranus. The planet Mercury sitting in Leo might mean an expressive, self-oriented curiosity in your area of partnerships, close relationships, and contracts. While this beneficial, positive connection continues, it may be good to debate with a friend, or to talk to your partner.
Elsewhere: continuing today, and concluding on the 8th, Mars is moving through Cancer. For you, Aquarius, this means a week where health, routine, and tasks are activated, and are busier for you. The planet Mars, when in the sign of Cancer, provides a nurturing, comforting drive.
Also On This Day:
- The Moon starts transiting the sign of Pisces until Monday.
- The planet Venus continues transiting Leo until the 8th of October.

You’ll be entertaining new possibilities as you get a broader perspective.

Look out for the period June 25th-July 7th as having extra ability to benefit you positively through these areas.
Jupiter moves into Virgo on August 11th and in some ways this is a period when you are more likely to get goodies through the resources of another. So it’s a good time to pool resources through a partnership, receive funding, improve your property or your overall material situation because there is someone there who you can team up with. Somehow, during this transit there will be sweeping changes which enrich life which can be fortunate for you over time, but, in the process, you will have to let go of whatever may be interfering with a more rewarding life and that includes your own out-moded ways of seeing things. This is when you need to practice the art of allowing abundance to come to you. Jupiter in this area of your solar chart until 2015 could open the door to spiritual and emotional regeneration. It is a vibration which heals old wounds – if you allow it!
Aquarians born until mid-month or with from 24 degrees rising will feel the energy of Jupiter in Virgo the most.
Saturn began her new cycle on Xmas Eve. Now you need to put a steady flow of energy into networking, group efforts, a hierarchy or a social circle. Finding your place in the pecking order might be problematical at times but if you accept that you can only establish yourself gradually, you can rise up the levels and over time, establish credibility, reliability and cultivate useful contacts who help you achieve your goals. Along the way you will encounter challenges as you strive to integrate your individual wishes with that of others. You could feel sidelined unless you find a way to compromise. But if you continue to be diligent and consistent in the obtaining of your ideals you should get the results you yearn for. So it’s not what you know but who you know, and how well you dove-tail your needs with theirs over this lengthy period.
Aquarians born up to the middle of the first week of February or with up to 12 degrees rising will feel the energy of Saturn in Sagittarius the most.

This gives you the chance to 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.

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 something in the sciences.

Aquarians born 27th January-4th February or with 4-11 degrees rising will feel this vibration the most over 2015.
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.
