Diana's Monthly Aquarius Forecast for October 2016
SENSING THE POTENTIAL
Until the 23rd the Sun is in a more outgoing, expansive area tending to raise the spirits and you see fresh possibilities outside of the routine box. Time to make plans or launch into projects. 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.
Until the 7th discussions, ideas or research tend to be strategic and also revealing as you drill down to fundamentals and suss things out. At times, communications could become confidential, involved or intense . At this time, some of you may be giving confidential advice and perhaps ‘sensing’ more than thinking as your gut knowing will be stronger. Your thinking could focus on sensitive issues your own or another’s. Conversations could revolve around the joint financial situation or property or possessions belonging to or shared with another. There may be more paperwork or some rethinking related to an agreement or contract.
(Mercury and Jupiter at the beginning of the second week means it is easier to get the bigger picture or be more upbeat in your thinking).
(Sun over Pluto at the end of the second week could indicate intensity or a clash of wills/a letting go necessary before moving forward).
A FRESH SLANT
From the 7th Mercury is expanding your mind and you should be entertaining new potential. Discussions and/or paperwork could be related to travel, higher learning or an unfamiliar environment. Thinking bigger and becoming more aware of fresh potential, or a distant horizon, a plan may be forming in your mind. This could be a good time to refresh your mental palette and think in bright new colours. Maybe there is 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.
(MID MONTH there could be some surprises with Sun on the degree of Uranus).
Until the 18th 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 or your work in a friendly 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.
A CHERISHED HOPE WITHIN REACH
From the 18th Venus warms group relationships and other associations. You will tend to feel supported by others who are singing from the same page or have common interests, as you move forwards with something you have hoped for, maybe for a long time. Networking, group gatherings or team efforts benefit from Venus’s sociable, helpful mood. Anything related to technology or activity online may be interesting, materially beneficial and, in general facilitate positive experiences. As Venus also rules money and property, you may benefit materially through groups, friends or special associations.
(In the last 3 days Venus on Saturn means more restraint or a more formal feeling in how you are relating).
THE COMMON GOOD
Mars is in a more inward and private area suggesting things are busier behind the scenes or in a separate bubble with others. This is a dynamic energy and so you may be making yourself available for something bigger than you are. But that’s alright for this is a karmic house which is about selflessness. This is a time for nurture, healing and support either from you or for you.
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 should be conscious of who/where/what is good for you and who/where/what is not. You may even be feeling somewhat downbeat and talk yourself out of something which could ultimately be good. But somehow there are not enough facts to make a definite decision. Follow your inner light.
This 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 influenced and can get sucked into other people’s stuff, their moods and opinions, so just be more self-protective at this time. Pay attention to dreams, visions, omens and coincidences. Mars here will also underpin practices like intuitive or imaginative thinking and healing practices. Or indeed anything which takes you out of yourself so you sustain the energy and enthusiasm you need to be of service where necessary.
(In the 3rd week Mars on Pluto could lead to extremism or over the top expectations from or to you. However, difficult things can be achieved and ambitions can be successful as long as you are aware of another’s interests as well as your own).
Saturn is now in a more helpful angle to your Sun sign. This means you can be more successful if you put a steady flow of energy into networking, group connections, friendships, a hierarchy or a social circle. Finding your place in the pecking order might be slow or you become disenchanted with the old order, but if you accept that you can only integrate or make improvements gradually, you can rise up the levels as you slowly establish yourself. This is a time of progress, but steady as you go forwards.
Aquarians born 29th Jan- 4th Feb or with from 10-16 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
(The current Saturn/Neptune transit brings uncertainty and indecision into this area, so harder work is necessary to clarify things, get organized and go forward in a confident, focused way. Neptune’s long transit through your 2nd house may mean confusion around finances or property at times. You may have to put your own desires on one side when it comes to these things. Avoid getting involved in anything risky and definitely get a trustworthy second opinion when making important decisions as your ability to have clear judgement could be impaired. Also, you may have to make sacrifices regarding the way you earn money or related to property. Now Saturn is close to Neptune by degree, here is an opportunity for you to push forward with a long-cherished hope or plan to capitalize on assets whether they be material resources or your own talents, but to do so in a methodical, disciplined manner and you should see a good result down the line).
A LEARNING CURVE
Jupiter will be working happily out of his own house in your solar chart until Oct 2017. You will have the opportunity to push the envelope of life as your mental/physical territory broadens and teaches you new things. Growth can also come through travel, foreign connections, wider communications through the spoken or written word, another language or academia. Also education – at times viewed as the teacher, the advisor, or guide is more likely. This is a great vibration for broadcasting on to a grander stage, but also for getting involved in publishing, politics, legal issues or communications media. This is an expansive phase and the boundaries of your known world will stretch into new fields of endeavour.
Aquarians born 22nd-31 Jan or with 3-12 degrees rising will feel the energy the most over this forecast period.
