Diana's Monthly Aries Forecast for October 2016
Until the 23rd you’ll benefit more from the support or contribution of another in close relationship or interaction. 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 7th Mercury is focusing your mind upon the practical aspects of life. Thoughts could revolve around, repairs, maintenance, or health – yours or another’s. Thinking about the mechanics of how something might work best will be a keynote. Also you could be learning useful new skills or blowing the dust off those you already have – either out of choice or necessity. Practical advice received will be of service.
(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/a moving forward).
From the 7th 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.
(MID MONTH there could be some surprises with Sun on the degree of Uranus).
Until the 18th Venus is in a place of emotional depth and some things can touch your feelings deeply, or you can sway another’s feeling for good or ill. Relationships may become more intimate, ’involved’ or lucrative. Venus here could also manifest as a relationship helping you out materially or supporting you emotionally in major or minor ways. So, a good time to acquire and use resources to benefit your joint material interests with others. Negotiations could go in your favour and there could be deeper, more rewarding bonds with another. Some of you may feel like shifting into more commitment in a material or emotional sense – depending on your natal chart and on your own ability to create what you want. Also, a relationship could revolve around a shared space, possessions or property but things can be ironed out to mutual advantage.
BREATH OF FRESH AIR
More opportunity is likely from the 18th when Venus encourages warmer more supportive relationships with those from far away, or from a different cultural background. Travel with a partner is possible or someone expands your thinking with their experience or background. You are more likely to connect with others who have a knowledge or expertise which helps you add pieces of the puzzle. This could be financially advantageous. 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 wider stage about something and it could prove to be lucrative. Publications or educational establishments could be highlighted and you and someone may be on a bit of a learning curve together. A teacher or someone with wisdom could be helpful, or, through their contribution and support you ultimately get a better understanding or material reward for your joint efforts.
(In the last 3 days Venus on Saturn means more restraint or a more formal feeling in how you are relating).
SCHEMES AND PLANS
The Mars transit indicates this is 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 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 un-co-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.
(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).
From the 23rd is a gear-shifting phase, but you‘ll probably be feeling your way forwards intuitively and sounding things out as you go. You may have to be more conscious of another’s side of things. 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.
Saturn is in Sagittarius til late 2017 putting her in a supportive aspect with your sign. This is a cycle of getting educated or gaining insights about beliefs or fields of interest, mental and physical. You will be seeing the reality, warts and all, of higher education or something you previously idealized or knew little about. You may feel more responsibility because of any of these areas or have to take more seriously wider communications, travel or legal matters. Developing a new understanding will be gradual like chipping a shape out of stone. So be steady and patient. You may gain a reputation for communicating your knowledge or experience through some medium of expression. But also appreciate and even wish to emulate certain others who can teach you a lot. Ariens born 30th March-5th April or with 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 manner. Because of the long transit of Neptune through you 12th house, you will be asking deeper questions and reflecting upon the past or questioning your knee-jerk reponses which mean you shoot yourself in the foot from time to time. You may spend more time musing upon life, the universe and everything. Some of you will explore the psychic or imaginal realms, some will discover deeper meaning to their life. With Saturn close to Neptune by degree, you will have the chance tot to flesh out those elusive feelings and vague hunches. To share with others and communicate across a wider field. Some may receive teaching which brings new understanding and insight or you may be the teacher/guide/author who shares experience with others. Discipline and organization will be needed in either case to bring the inner visions, the abstract ideas or the higher knowledge into the everyday world).
A NEW RAPPORT
Jupiter will be opening the way to wider possibilities via close personal or professional relationships until October 2017. Because of key close associations your horizons will broaden. Others will be more interested in your knowledge and experience but, equally you will probably be intrigued by the fresh influences coming your way. Partners, colleagues, clients, friends could get you thinking more expansively and probably you will learn a lot through them. Ariens born 23rd March – 1st April or with
3-12 degrees rising.
Uranus: Ariens born 11th-12th April or with 22-23 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
Pluto: Ariens born 3rd-5th April or with 14-16 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.

What today looks like:
Starting today, and concluding on Tuesday, the Moon is competing with Neptune. Your area of pleasure, leisure, gaming, and creative self expression is supplied with a creative, prideful need by the Moon in Leo. While this contradictory, trying connection continues, it might be tricky to have fun on your own, or to enjoy a mystery.
As well: beginning today, and concluding on Thursday, our Moon is moving through Virgo. For you, Arians, this means a few days where your day job, health, and routine are fostered, and more familiar in your life. The Moon, when in Virgo, provides a critical, practical need.
Also today: continuing today, and finishing on the 2nd, Mars is clashing with the planet Uranus. Your area of life-path, career, and position in society is infused with a dogged, authoritative action by Mars in Capricorn.

Also On This Day:
- The planet Mercury continues transiting Scorpio until the 12th.
- Starting today and concluding on Tuesday, the planet Venus is in a square aspect with the Moon.
