Diana's Monthly Aquarius Forecast for August 2014
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 get 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!
On the 7th, you do well to get active on behalf of others but also the dreamer in you can manifest a cherished vision.
You will have to push through with determination around the 8th/9th to take advantage of the wave of inspiration and progress coming from Uranus.
Until the 12th Venus is in a more practical mood, favourably highlighting teamwork regarding daily chores, health matters or running repairs. Others will probably be in a co-operative frame of mind assisting with your requirements. You are more likely to have reasonable interaction with health-providers, co-workers and anyone providing assistance and so if there has been an ongoing problem chances are you will find someone to help with recovery or repair and, even if the problem is not resolved, the interaction will tend to be pleasant.
THE WORLDS WITHIN
Until the 16th, communications tend to become more strategic, involved, or confidential. Your thinking could spring from deeper knowing or be more heart-based. You may also be mulling over the financial or property situation, a space, a venue, possessions belonging to or shared with another. There may be more discussions related to an agreement or contract and you have to liaise with another before the deal is sealed.
WALKING THE TALK
From the 16th, 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. Avoid major decisions on the 18th/19th you may be inclined to build castles in the air.
From the 12th 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 but all relationships, personal, or professional tend to flow more easily. You and another could be enjoying eachother’s company.
A PROBLEM SHARED IS A PROBLEM HALVED
From the 23rd it’s not a time to be going it alone and you’ll benefit more from close liaisons. So central to this period, will be how to get the best out of partnerships and other close associations. You and someone could be bonding, negotiating or supporting eachother. But, however it is for you, there is more of a feeling of mutual interaction – or attraction!
From the 23rd is a gear-shifting phase, but you‘ll probably be feeling your way forwards as you intuitively sound things out. You may be more conscious of another’s welfare, feelings or requirements. You may also be weighing up what another’s side of things is in a financial, legal or moral sense. You could be musing over some deeper questions, but answers will come more through intuition than the intellect. Transition will occur when, through mutual action with, or challenge from another, your value structure (and instinct) tells you what is the right thing to do.
Aim for some down time to feed your soul on the 29th – worldly energies will be at a low ebb. But you have the ability to tune into what eluded you before.
A NEW DIRECTION OR THE MASTER PLAN
The new Mars position indicates a period for putting physical effort into achieving certain goals and ambitions. These may be career orientated or ‘via’ points on the way to where you hope to end up. Overall, this transit of Mars could inspire you to take more responsibility about your direction in life and you care more about the impressions you make on certain others. Over this long transit you feel the need to work on image or reputation and reach standards which are demanded by those in authority, and, if you are decisive and energetic, Mars will help you get to where you want to go as long as his tendency to be controversial is handled. You may get frustrated with the powers that be as you feel they are slow, aggressive, inefficient or downright unco-operative. If you manage to keep your cool and not be too hasty, you will make progress with the master-plan, but also with lesser goals and ambitions too.
A PLACE IN THE WORLD
Saturn, also in this area, 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 in the middle 10 days or with 15-19 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.

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.
