Diana's Monthly Aries Forecast for February 2016
Until the 19th the Solar energy makes it a forward-moving phase when friendships, associations or more involvement within a community or a group of kindred spirits could be a key feature. A future-orientated phase when you may be working to realize an idea or ideal which has been on the backburner for a long time. Networking, group connections and technology may also be emphasized.
Until the 14th, discussions, correspondence and targets may involve bureaucracy, parental figures or the ‘powers that be’. Or it may mean more ‘official’ type paper-work or correspondence. Career, a new enterprise, or those who may facilitate your aims could be highlighted. You may find your goals and schemes are being validated or rejected by the by the way things are unfolding across the wider stage. You will be putting mental effort into expressing yourself in the best way you can so as to get the result you desire. Vehicles, transport or communications equipment may also be on your mind.
From the 14th will be a period in which to discuss, consider, and generally chew the fat in the company of others. Or you may be networking or spending more time online. Others could find you articulate and your ideas interesting and you feel in an experimental mood as you explore different ideas or avenues of expression. You could be surprised by another’s style or unusual take on things. Equally others could see you as unconventional, inspiring or….either you or someone else is too unconventional!
FRIENDS IN HIGH PLACES
Until the 17th 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 good 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 17th 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.
Mars is in the sector of your solar chart which clears the decks for new beginnings. So one manifestation may be a de-clutter, is in the pipe-line. Or maybe either letting go or regenerating an ailing or stale situation. Whether it’s a re-think, a de-tox or a Spring Clean, this Mars position means coming up against pre-existing conditions, behaviours or requirements which provoke an inner confrontation with your ethics or things shared with another. Then a shift, as emotions drive a change. You could be intensely aware of the feeling or needs of others at times and you may have to bite your tongue or be more confidential or shrewd.
Debts due or owed (moral or otherwise) may need a more decisive approach or maybe someone is being more assertive – even coercive – towards you. You’ll probably have to feel your way rather than ´think´ your way, and even though you are aware of others’ feelings , values or expectations, you want to stick up for yourself , and be true to your own values and inner nature. You are looking for a win/win solution but listening with your inner ear and seeing with your third eye.
You’ll tend not to want to put all your cards on the table with some people.
FEED THE SOUL
From the 19th the Solar energies could manifest as a pull towards things going on behind the scenes or in your private life – perhaps to do with the past or perhaps it’s a work in progress. You’ll probably have to put aside personal desires and become more aware of another’s needs or requirements, even when you are not in the mood. Others may not fully realize how much you are dealing with as the Sun is in a karmic house during this phase. But this is no time to cling to ego, as, if you do, you may feel let down.
STRINGS TO YOUR BOW
Jupiter will be in your area of health & work until 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 7th-12th or with 18-23 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 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 2nd-6th April or with 13-17 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
Uranus: Ariens born 5th-8th April or with 16-19 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
Pluto: Ariens born 4th-7th April or with 15-18 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.

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.
