Diana's Monthly Aries Forecast for November 2015
Until the 23rd is a gear-shifting phase, but you‘ll probably be feeling your way forwards as you intuitively sound things out. 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.
Until the 21st 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 FRESH PERSPECTIVE
From the 21st 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. 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.
Until the 9th Venus is in a more practical mood, favourably highlighting teamwork regarding daily chores, learning skills (or maybe which button to push), running repairs or health matters – your own or another’s. Others will probably be in a co-operative, more supportive 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.
From the 9th 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 13thMars 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 13th 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.
A FRESH PERSPECTIVE
New potentials are in the wind from the 23rd. The Sun is in a more outgoing, expansive area tending to raise the spirits as 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.
STRINGS TO YOUR BOW
Jupiter will be in your area of health & work until next September 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 August. Employers or colleagues will tend to be more appreciative of your abilities and your contribution.
Ariens born 5th-11th or with 15-21 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this month.
TESTING IDEALS AND BELIEFS
Saturn is in a 2 year transit of Sagittarius putting her in a supportive aspect with your sign. This is a cycle of 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 24th-28th March or with up to 3-8 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
Uranus: Ariens born 6th-8th April or with 16-18 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
Pluto: Ariens born 3rd-5th April or with 13-15 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
We still have the long-running generational aspect of Uranus/Pluto in challenging aspect to eachother albeit further apart. These two are responsible for mass social change. The status quo is shifting and things we have all taken for granted socially/economically/culturally is changing and those of us alive today are in the eye of that storm. This is an opportunity for those who are ready to awaken from a long sleep-walk, a chance for growth and new frontiers in belief systems, personal values, creativity and how we apply those against the unfamiliar background of a playing field where, at least, the goal-posts have moved or at most, the game has changed altogether . And there are more game-changing revelations to come over the years ahead.
So watch the spaces where Uranus and Pluto are transiting in your natal and sun-sign charts. And, you can even look at the positions of the signs under their rulership (Aquarius/Scorpio) to get a sense of which parts of your life may be most implicated.
This transit was hanging in the air much earlier this year. (Ebola outbreak, refugees, plucked out of seas and others had their way barred at Calais). Now it is rooting into the mass consciousness more robustly and will be triggering events, reactions and decisions made in response, over the coming 2 months or so. Also, at times in 2016.
Saturn is the planet of the status quo, physical boundaries and structures and Neptune is the planet of ideologies, victimization, escapism and of trying to do what is best for the common good even if it means hardship. But these notions are far too ambiguous for Saturn’s practical material nature. Saturn asks the ‘how’ and prefers to deal with the facts, the nuts and bolts. Saturn is also authority figures, and cares about appearances and keeping to historical standards. But Saturn is also a responsible Mother and wants to protect and provide for others.
These 2 planets are at such an angle that it creates friction, which creates heat which seeks an immediate outlet. They not only trigger events, but they demand dynamic effort to balance the conflict between them and to find a productive release to that tension.
Saturn is in Sagittarius at the moment. Sagittarius rules foreign lands, long journeys, unfamiliar territory and the Higher Law.
It seems to me that Saturn in Sagittarius and Neptune at home in Pisces brings a new kind of confusion, uncertainty about HOW to help the needy, HOW to resolve a tricky situation, without having the wool pulled over the eyes by the greedy. And how to execute the compassionate service required in an orderly, practical, structured fashion. So, our task is to balance our higher vision and emotional intelligence with realistic possibilities. This influence is underpinning events world-wide but also in our individual charts, so look at where Saturn and Neptune are transiting in your natal and sun-sign charts. I will mention the positions of these two transiting planets in your sun-sign chart below.
You can even look at the house positions of the signs under their rulership (Capricorn, Pisces) to get a sense of which parts of your life may be most implicated.
Also, in the individual chart the higher expressions of Neptune such as selfless service, charitable actions, healing and art, should be blended with concrete, practical solutions implemented in a gradual manner which are realistic and serve the common good.

What today looks like:
Beginning today, and concluding on Sunday, our Moon is tussling with the planet Venus. The Moon sitting in Cancer may mean a feeling which is nurturing, and comforting in your area of instinctual behaviour, home, and family-life. While this awkward connection continues, it might be difficult to stay home with your significant other, or to nurture partnerships.
Also today: continuing today, and ending on Monday, Mercury and Saturn are combining in the sign of Sagittarius. This powerful link supplies an analytical, restrcted consideration to your area of long journeys, law, and higher learning. Now may be a powerful time to come to terms with something unfamiliar on adventures.
As well: starting today, and finishing on Sunday, the Moon is cooperating with Jupiter. Your area of instinctual behaviour, home, and family-life is filled with a gentle, caring need by our Moon in Cancer. It may be good to work from home, or take your work home with you, while this convenient, natural connection continues.
Also On This Day:
- A square aspect between Pluto and Mars begins today, and ends on the 13th.
- A trine aspect between Uranus and Mercury begins today, and continues until Thursday.
- The Moon carries on transiting Cancer until Sunday.

Diana's 2015 Aries Forecast:
THERE WILL BE 2 SOLAR ECLIPSES IN 2015:
The first Solar eclipse of the year occurs on March 20th in your 12th/1st house.
This eclipse covering the subsequent 6 months, could trigger the Mercury/Neptune vibe in early Pisces. Just make sure you don’t get the wrong end of the stick because a communication was unclear or you confuse someone with your lack of clarity.
A time of fresh starts, with things on a personal level. Because this eclipse is on the cusp you there will be new beginnings related to your inner needs as well as your outer image and personal goals and ambitions over the next 6 months. So no more procrastinating, launch into something new!
The second Solar eclipse of the year occurs on Sept 13th in your 6th house
A good time to make improvements regarding employment, daily work methods, health matters (yours or another’s).
Until August 11th Jupiter, planet of potential abundance and expansion will positively influence your Sun sign. This is the second part of a 12 month period when you may be appreciated more for yourself, and you may find ways to be more creatively self-expressive or enterprising. There will be more call upon you to perform, compete, or flex your creative muscles. This transit and could help bring romance into your life, or find yourself in a more entertaining, sporty or ‘on show’ sort of environment ! Your world will expand through contact with children or animals or you’ll have more success with activities where your inner child can come out to play. Also this is a time when money can be made from speculative ventures or making use of talents which tend to be enhanced at this time. You may be rubbing shoulders with others who are competitive, artistic, or just out to have a good time. You should feel confidence growing over these months if you tap into your personal power more.
Ariens born from mid-month or with from 23 degrees rising will feel the energy of Jupiter in Leo the most.
Venus will be in an extraordinarly long transit this year…
Venus will be teaming up with Jupiter in Leo June 6th – Oct 9th resulting in a stunning series of aspects to your Aries sun and favourably underpinning the availability of more entertaining or playful environments. This could stack the odds in your favour in the romance department too. Creative or speculative projects will benefit and this is the moment to reach further and think bigger through these areas and also anything performance or competition orientated.
Jupiter transits from Leo to Virgo on August 11th putting Jupiter in your area of health & work. This will bring opportunities for more satisfaction related to employment. Also, your everyday tasks, the job set-up, techniques or health matters – your own or another’s. Others may tend to consult with you for your knowledge or skill and, in general will tend to be more appreciative of your abilities and your contribution. Either way, daily work is likely to teach you a lot and tends to be more fulfilling.
It’s likely that through everyday work or health and fitness your territory, physical or mental, will broaden.
Jupiter’s beneficial vibration could help your wellbeing as you learn what does and does not work for you on practical levels. The downside is that you might take on too many duties or overstep the mark with diet or exercise. Remember, moderation in all things.
All Ariens born until just past mid-April or with up to 24 degrees rising will feel the Jupiter vibration in 2015
Saturn transits out of Scorpio into Sagittarius on Xmas eve returning for a short spell between 15th June – 17th Sept a fellow fire sign – and that puts it into a supportive aspect with your sign Aries. You will be working harder at literature, higher education, legal matters or long distance connections. You could be integrating new understanding of concepts, language, culture or a belief system. It’s important not to close your mind because you think there is nothing new to learn about any of these areas, or think that current understanding is correct simply because you cannot see beyond them through lack of experience. Developing an ideology or field of knowledge will be gradual like chipping a shape out of stone. Getting educated will be practical and visceral, so be consistent and patient.
One way or another, a different dimension will open to you through unfamiliar places or those with a different mind-set or background to your own. Ariens born up to first week of April or with up to 12 degrees rising will feel the energy of Saturn most over 2015.
For you Aries, Saturn returns to your Solar 8th house. The 8th house is a gear-change zone which usually means clearing the decks in one area to make space for new green shoots in another area. This may involve property, finances, relationships or bad habits. You’ll become more aware over this time frame of who/what you can really trust and what the bottom line is. In the process, you may have to let go of a previous set-up, expectation or contract so that you can get more fulfilment from life. Ditching or modifying a prior arrangement in favour of one which is financially or emotionally more comfortable can happen but it will be gradual and you may still have to live within the parameters of the previous conditions for a while. Or maybe there’s a removal of a certain resource or support system or lifestyle and you are rigidly fearful because you see this as a loss, which it may be – in the short-term. But this is the house of new beginnings, of re-working your mission statement, streamlining or physically re-cycling the old material into something completely different. Either way, you will slowly be transitioning into a fresh perspective. At times, there may be more turmoil going on inside of you than others realize or appreciate. Maybe you have been realizing that chronic bad habits are difficult to break or a commitment is proving more challenging than you signed up for. One way or another, over this long transit your value structure will be challenged and re-shaped as a result.
A different way this can work is anything occult or connected to the ‘other side’ you take more seriously or work on yourself and your ability to renovate or renew your existence despite the obstacles and challenges. During this period you will have to be patient and persevering as the cogs of the gears slowly shift into their new positions. Ariens born from 17th April or with from 26 degrees Aries rising will feel this energy the most in 2015.
Uranus continues in a hard aspect to Pluto over 2015 orbiting closest to each other until mid-April affecting most strongly those born in the second decanate of the sign.
Aries, with Uranus in your Sun sign til 2019 and Pluto at the top of your chart for more years than that, it may be necessary to follow a different path to the one you have been used to.
Those of you born from the second 10 days to the beginning of the last 10 days of Aries will have a continuation of, or the start of changes which affect your sense of self and who you are in the wider world. You may feel a restless urge to express yourself in a freer or more independent manner. Spiritual or psychological insight could rock your world and your familiar way of being begins to alter.
You may find yourself more connected to a group of those with an interest or expertise in common. Technology of any kind, or anything related to the internet may be emphasized and in general, you could be connecting with kindred spirits as part of this process of self-identity transformation. This period could certainly hold some surprises which could either inspire you or awaken you suddenly but it is definitely designed to catapult you out of your familiar little box. So expect the unexpected and do your best to roll with the changes.
As this transformation takes place you may adopt a more rebellious stance in situations you would have accepted previously. This might take certain others aback who cannot understand your unwillingness to conform and there may be some finger pointing or intakes of breath from them along the way but this is part of the spirit of revolution of Uranus which, ultimately will facilitate change and transformation and is, with Pluto, part of a significant growth process in your consciousness.
Those children of the Ram born 4th-14th April or with 11-21 degrees rising will feel this energy most potently in 2015.
The life-changing force of Pluto continues to be felt across your sign from Capricorn. You should listen to the most primitive part of your knowing (not thinking) and follow your gut instinct when deciding which is the best way to go regarding direction in life. Over 2015 there will be an increasing urge for you to get more control over relationships with professionals, officials, parents, or build a reputation which is more true to the real you and your evolving values.
Pluto influences you to feel things more intensely and brings out your demons at times. And you could meet some of these intense feelings through interaction with authority figures, those who seem to hold all the cards and are in control of things. But manifestations of Pluto will also force you to look within and ask some deeper questions about where you really want to be in the big world. With the planet of death/rebirth affecting general life direction, career, reputation, teachers or authority figures it could mean some of you are involved in power struggles or are forced to make a major changes in these areas. Ultimately good because it clears the decks for new beginnings. Pluto is about power and will either bestow the will-power you need to make your mark on the world or give you the insight to find out what your goals truly are. Pluto is also about regeneration and you will have the opportunity for great success even if you have to switch boats mid-stream. If this feels right and supports your deepest values then go for it.
Finding a fresh direction or another option means steering a new course and, for a while, it may take some guts (which you have in abundance) and tenacity (which you will have to cultivate). Pluto will give you what you need – but not necessarily what you think you want.
Ariens born 4th-9th or with 11-16 degrees rising will feel this energy most over 2015.
Neptune is transiting early Pisces. Neptune works subtly but may mean you get pulled more into situations where you need healing or have to behave in a selfless, or supportive manner, with no thought of personal gain when helping others. Some of you may become interested in Yoga, meditation or healing practices. Underlying this transit you are preparing, understanding yourself more deeply and tending your inner world your private world like a secret garden. Some of you could have psychic experiences or strange encounters as Neptune sensitizes your third eye, dreams may become more informative. This long transit of many years may have you working more from behind the scenes in minor or major ways. Ariens born 25th-31st March or with 4-11 degrees rising, will feel the effect of Neptune most potently in 2015.
