Diana's Monthly Aquarius Forecast for May 2014
WITHIN THE CASTLE WALLS
Until the 21st , your attention or concerns will probably centre around a base of operations or within a locality, community or with family members. Property matters – buying/selling/home improvements may be a feature or it may be about a particular space inside or outside. In some respects your gaze will tend to be more inwards and you may be pondering more, or feeling things more deeply. Listen to your instincts!
Until the 8th, discussions could revolve around family, extended family, neighbours, or property matters. Correspondence and speculation may be about a physical space inside/outside, or points on the map. You may be mulling things over feeling more emotional or nostalgic. There may be communications with relations or parents for some of you and others may be considering a legacy or a tradition of some kind. Whatever is going on feelings tend to be nearer the surface and certain interchanges may stir things up or touch a nerve. Either way it tends to be a mentally busy or social time in and around a base of operations – wherever that is – or you may be on the move more. Around mid-month there could be an unexpected change affecting any of these areas.
Until the 3rd, Venus is in an area concerning money, property, possessions and other basic stuff. Overall, it means you can do okay in financial negotiations as your people skills will tend to improve. Teaming up with another regarding finances or buying/selling/renting/leasing is favoured and applying for funding or investments made under this transit can go your way as long as you are sensible and don’t take a wild risk. Any conflict over possessions or property matters can be harmonized over.
THE GREAT WIDE OPEN
From the 3rd Venus will be in a very sociable sector of your solar chart. She can help you to be articulate in your expression and tends to deliver environments or daily encounters which are more appealing or entertaining, even exotic. Some of you could be in exchanges with others who appreciate your self-expression or there may be more interesting distractions or more access to the arts. Media is favoured as is anything artistic. This transit could bring warm, supportive relations with siblings or soul brothers and sisters. You also can do better when buying/selling/promoting etc and if you want to settle a feud or negotiate for something, then you can be very persuasive.
From the 8th Mercury is in a more innovative sector of your Solar chart and there’s likely to be increased communications either with or about young ones, lovers or pets. Whatever you are doing, there may be more laughs or distractions along the way. Now you enjoy playing with ideas and speculating, maybe a little wildly, on this or that or the other possibility. Your creative juices are flowing and you are more articulate which may help with beating the drum on something. Trickster energy is stronger and games or pranks may be on your mind, there could be a false alarm or you are the butt of someone else’s joke. Also, you could be more romantically expressive or creatively inspired at this time.
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 17-21 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
Until July, Mars is in a more outgoing, expansive area of your solar chart. At key points over this long transit you will be supported as you reach out for new horizons and fresh experiences, so this may be the right moment to launch a new scheme or enterprise or to go on a journey of discovery.
You will be gathering information or learning through doing, but also grasping certain things you didn’t have a clue about before. Some of you may be getting out and about more and this is a good time to shake out the cobwebs. Travel, connecting with foreign lands, giving or taking a course would be a good idea. Some of your physical energy may be needed as you push the envelope of daily life and get right outside of the routine box by stretching yourself mentally or physically. Aquarians born in the first/second decanate or with 8-12 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this month.
STRINGS TO YOUR BOW
Jupiter will be in your area of health & work until next July and there will be no shortage of opportunities to learn and grow through employment matters, colleagues, daily duties, but also health and fitness. The indications are that you will get the chance to experience new work or health routines until mid-year. Employers or colleagues will tend to be more appreciative of your abilities and your contribution.
Aquarians born near the beginning of the second decanate or with 14-21 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
JUPITER/URANUS/PLUTO early month
You may be feeling restless and looking for ways to be less hemmed in and freer to express yourself in the way you prefer.
Also, what do you have to chuck out in order to improve your life? What ballast do you have to drop in order to expand into fresh territories? What lengths will you have to go to in order to more fully inhabit the version of yourself you have now become?
This may be a time when you are deeply questioning things and being very honest with yourself about what is more worthwhile at this stage of the journey.
(The current position of Saturn, Neptune and Jupiter will create a vibration which positively supports imaginative ways to improve your material/financial circumstances and may give you a deeper insight into what is of more value in your life now. New work possibilities are on the horizon and could connect you to travel or another culture).

What today looks like:
Beginning today, and concluding on Saturday, the Moon is clashing with Venus. Your area of groups, friends, and social circles is provided with a faithful, independent desire by the Moon in the sign of Sagittarius. It might be difficult to buy something from or for a friend, or place a lot of value in your social circle, while this diffcult clash continues.
Also today: continuing today, and ending on the 5th, Mars is competing with the planet Uranus. Mars present in the sign of Libra may mean your area of long journeys, law, and higher learning is supplied with a compromizing, diplomatic action. It might be a struggle to discuss something unfamiliar, or think about a holiday, while this fluctuating, tricky link continues.
Elsewhere: continuing today, and concluding on Saturday, our Moon is moving through Sagittarius. For you, Aquarians, this means a few days where social groups, and aquaintances are more familiar, and feel safer to you. The Moon, when in the sign of Sagittarius, provides a restless, adventurous need.
Also On This Day:
- Jupiter carries on a trine aspect with the planet Venus today, which continues until Monday.
- Pluto carries on a square aspect with Mars today, which ends on the 12th.
- The planet Mercury continues transiting Aries until Tuesday.

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.
