Diana's Monthly Cancer Forecast for November 2015
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.
Until the 23rd there’s a brighter, less inward, vibration around. So that could manifest as more opportunities to be in environments with scope for play or creative effort. Or to be more involved with those out to have a good time whether as a participant or a facilitator. More emphasis is given to children, youngsters or romantic partners for some, and for others, there could be more socializing and maybe more contact with arts/entertainments or the leisure industry. You are more likely to feel the light of appreciation from others or be participating in activities you find fun or personally empowering.
Until the 21st Mercury is in a more innovative sector of your Solar chart. Now you enjoy playing with ideas and speculating, maybe a little wildly, on this or that or the other possibility. But, whatever you are doing, there may be more laughs or distractions along the way. Your creative juices are flowing and you are more articulate which may help with beating the drum on something. Also, there’s likely to be increased communications either with or about young people, lovers or pets. Also, you could be more romantically expressive or creatively inspired at this time.
Until the 21st, 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 works will definitely 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 will be of service.
Until the 9th Venus is 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 daily encounters 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 9th Venus beams a friendly, sociable light into the root of your chart. This can manifest in various ways. Overall, it encourages a more harmonious time at home and you welcome others into your space or are more the visitor to others. Or, it could be a venue where you all meet up. It could be a good time to appreciate family or tribal connections, or maybe you like where you are located. You may feel the urge to beautify your surroundings or make more of your space inside or outside.
Until the 13th Mars is in a transit of your Solar communications sector accelerating mental processes and firing up the way you express yourself. Educational pursuits, speaking, writing or socializing can be demanding or competitive at times and you express ideas and opinions with greater force and dynamism which may take others aback. Comings and goings may increase or you find yourself more in the stream of information exchange and this would be a good time to float a new concept or body of work. However, there may be tensions and you can feel overloaded with too much information coming at you or demanded from you. Sometimes, it could feel that certain others are too impatient or over-assertive but, your own reactions may be too defensive. It’s better to be measured and decisive in what you say, keeping lines of communication open rather than wasting energy wondering about someone’s deeper motives.
In general, there could be more correspondence or other types of paperwork than usual and flying hither and thither for business or personal reasons. Overall, you should start to feel more confident about making decisions or defining certain objectives more clearly. You can be proactive and successful with media, promotions, negotiations or simply speaking up for yourself in a more assertive way.
From the 13th Mars is at the root of your chart. This means you could be busier than usual in and around HQ, or because of a property or another location. Physical effort may be needed right in your own back yard or there is more physical demand on you because of family, neighbourhood or community. Decisiveness, assertiveness or more stamina may be needed because of any of these possibilities. Mars in this area could mean a lot more coming and going within a locality even if it is not your usual stamping ground or there may be more hustle and bustle around you. As always with Mars, there could be moments of tension which surface now and again and affect your mood and you may find a way to use pent up energies in a more positive manner. Skeletons may start rattling in the closet and you have to ride the waves of emotional reactions or elements from the past have more impact or relevance to the present. On the other hand you may be putting your energies into something which connects you with tradition, the family or tribal background, Mother Nature or the planet as a whole. For some, parents or parenting are emphasized – especially the male side.
From the 23rd when the sun moves, you may be dealing with more chores or niggly details, or, this may be the moment to get to grips with health issues (yours or another’s) or a better diet and exercise regime. You may also be putting more effort into maintenance, repairs, or applying skills. So, dealing with the ‘to do’ list and getting things organized better seems advisable, but there will be smiles along the way.
STITCHES IN TIME
Saturn has returned to her previous position in your area of the job, health matters and all manner of practical tasks. This is a service-orientated area of your Solar chart. But it’s also the stitch-in-time-saves-nine part too. Keeping ahead of the game with the practical side of chores and health matters would be smart. Anything health and fitness related will take time to resolve itself so, be patient! Generally it means harder work and more assistance to others on a regular basis or keeping things ticking over with general maintenance and repairs and that includes the body too. Also it could be a time for plugging away at learning practical skills, and generally applying yourself in useful ways. Service providers, co-workers or even certain equipment or techniques may present obstacles or cramp your style at times. These challenges make you savvy and push you into wiser choices in the future.
Cancerians born 24th-29th June with from 3-8 degrees rising will feel the energy the most this forecast period.
FLIT LIKE A BUTTERFLY
Jupiterian expansiveness will tend to support a more outgoing, upbeat, positive frame of mind until next September. You may be on a learning curve developing yourself though education, speaking, writing or other forms of creative expression. There could be more interesting daily exchanges which are positive, revealing or there are more comings and goings to and from a locality. New concepts, jargons and connections will be carved into your mental landscape between now and August. Early Cancerians and Cancerians born from 7th-13th July or with 15-21 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
Uranus: Cancerians born 8th-10th July or with 16-18 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
Pluto: Cancerians born 5th-7th July or with 13-15 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.

What today looks like:
Starting today, and concluding on the 15th, the Sun is connecting with the planet Mars. The Sun sitting in Sagittarius may mean your area of organization, routine, and health is supplied with an athletic, independent motivation. While this oppertunistic collaboration continues, it may be opportune to take your work home with you, or to work with your family.
As well: continuing today, and ending on Thursday, our Moon is clashing with Jupiter. The Moon present in Gemini might mean a curious, communicative desire in your area of mystery, sprituality, and privacy. While this awkward clash continues, it may be frustrating to meditate, or to have a spiritual discussion.
Elsewhere: beginning today, and concluding on Sunday, the Moon is moving through the sign of Cancer. For you, Cancer, this means a period of three days where the impression you give to others, and your attitude toward the world are more familiar, and feel safer to you. The Moon, when in Cancer, provides a caring, nurturing need.
Also On This Day:
- Neptune carries on a square aspect with our Sun today, which continues until the 3rd.
- Our Moon continues transiting Gemini until Friday.
- The planet Venus carries on transiting Libra until the 4th.

Diana's 2015 Cancer Forecast:
MERCURY RETROGRADES 3 times for approx 3 weeks each in 2015:
First retrograde on Jan 21st – February 11th – Aquarius 17-1 degrees
Second retrograde on 18th May – 11th June – Gemini 13-4 degrees
Third retrograde on 17th Sept – 9th October – Libra 15-0 degrees
THERE WILL BE 2 SOLAR ECLIPSES IN 2015:
The first Solar eclipse of the year occurs on March 20th in your 9th/10th house.
This eclipse covering the next 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 own lack of clarity.
Reaching out for the knowledge and exploring new possibilities and dimensions of experience. Take the initiative regarding your direction and your goals.
The second Solar eclipse of the year occurs on Sept 13th in your 3rd house
A time of fresh starts through connections new and old, gathering information, also reaching out to siblings or not putting off contacting that certain person.
Astrologically speaking, as one of the Cardinal signs, there’s a lot of planetary action continuing to affect your Sun sign in 2015 with Uranus and Pluto making a strong impact. The Cardinal signs are the movers and shakers of the zodiac and the way you handle what the universe is dishing up between 2011 and 2016 is generational and will, to an extent, set the precedent for what follows further down the line…
Cancer, with Uranus in a hard angle to your Sun sign til 2019 and Pluto in your opposite sign for more years than that, you will be getting used to the sometimes jittery and sometimes exciting feeling that change is in the air and that your direction in the wider world is going through a cycle of change. Certain close relationships will never be the same again and even though it may not feel like it at the time, it’s your sub-conscious choosing what is taking shape.
Venus will be in long transits beginning late in the year………
Venus will be in Leo from June 6th – Sept 17th which is potentially good news for you Cancer as the abundance of Venus will be gracing a materialistic area to do with finances, property, and possessions. It is also the field of your innate talents. With Venus in a long transit here could get yourself a good deal on something but also find that a talent becomes lucrative.
Jupiter is in Leo until August 11th . Growth will tend to come more through finances, property or other material ways. Definitely the time to capitalize upon your assets, be they material or in the form of inborn talents. This vibration can attract useful resources or opportunities and you discover more about their value in your life. Take advantage of Jupiter here to underpin whatever might help you expand mentally or physically into new territories as it could result in better finances or better use of your talents, now and in the future. By thinking bigger, you should do better in basic material ways.
Cancerians born from mid-July with from 23 degrees rising will feel the energy of Jupiter in Leo the most.
Jupiter enters Virgo on August 11th beginning a cycle of developing yourself through communications, education or creative self-expression. In person or over the wires, you can benefit through networking, exchanging information and improving your communication style through any media and people skills. This is right up your street Gemini. If you are ready to seize fresh opportunities and learn new things, you begin to see a range of happier options unfolding before you as Jupiterian expansiveness influences you into a more outgoing, positive frame of mind but Saturn will keep you realistic about what’s doable in practical terms. There could be more comings and goings within the locality, or social life could become a busy hub of mental activity and a learning resource as well. You can develop people skills, learn a new language or jargon, visit unfamiliar places or mix with a culture or a mind-set different to what you are used to. New pathways will be carved into your mental landscape. And this is a good period for connecting with creative thinking and expressing yourself freely through different media maybe channelling your thoughts and intuitions and getting the bigger picture as your mental map expands.
Cancerians born after mid-July or with up to 23 degrees rising will feel this energy the most in 2015.
For you Cancer, Saturn’s new transit in Sagittarius may equate to a more challenging work schedule, or for some, a need to take health and fitness more seriously – your own or someone else’s. This is the ‘stitch in time saves nine’ position of Saturn. Generally it means harder work and more service to others on a regular basis and keeping things ticking over with maintenance and repairs. You may be in more regular contact with co-workers medicos, therapists or service-providers now. Any of these may feel challenging because it will be through them that you meet the tests of Saturn. A great time for learning practical skills and applying yourself in useful ways so as to get useful results.
Saturn will be in this transit all year except between June 15th and Sept 18th 2015
Cancerians born up to 5th July or with up to 23 degrees rising will feel this vibration the most over 2015.
Between June 15th and Sept 18th
Saturn challenges come through children/young ones, speculative or investment projects, or a romance. These areas, hobbies and competitive activities will need a more disciplined, patient approach to slowly come to fruition. Creative interests or spare-time activities will need a consistent and disciplined input. Those of you involved in the arts or promotional or performance-type activities, should understand that a regular, methodical application will bring success in the long run, nothing will happen fast.
In this Saturn transit you’ll learn how to concentrate your energy into building new routines into activities you find empowering, enterprising creative or competitive.
Cancerians born from 17th July or from 27 degrees Cancer rising will feel this vibration the most.
Uranus continues in a hard aspect to Pluto over 2015 orbiting closest to each other up to mid-April
Uranus will be transiting the top of your chart until 2019 Inspired new beginnings with your general life-direction can occur over the 7 plus years of Uranus here. There may be a several changes of conditions over 2015 if Uranus comes within range of an important point in your natal chart. Change and expansion, especially with Jupiter in your sign until mid-July, may be a governing factor and you will be learning a lot as new doors open in the professional arena but also with partners and other close relationships personal or professional.
A previous set-up may suddenly be replaced and you’ll have to adapt to a different environment. Because you are re-thinking the master-plan or wanting a change in your direction, there could be a ‘coup de foudre’ when things happen fast, but this is the spirit of revolution which facilitates your evolution and is part of a significant growth process even though it may be unpredictable at times.
Cancerians born 2nd-14th July or with 11-21 degrees rising will feel this vibration the most over 2015.
Pluto, now in Capricorn for many years in your close relationship area, will help you decide what kind of personal or professional interactions are most worthwhile. Wherever Pluto goes in the chart, your feelings are more sensitive and there will be a letting go which may feel inevitable or you cling to bygone scenarios which makes evolving more difficult. But Pluto is about rebirth from the raw material of the old way, the old life. This strong drive growing within you intensifies certain relationship interactions and there could be intense exchanges at times. With the planet of death/rebirth affecting you it could mean some of you are compelled to make major changes or have it thrust upon you by a someone in close relationship. This could work to your advantage in the long run as it shakes things up and clears the decks. Finding a fresh direction or another option means steering a new course and for a while it may take guts and tenacity but Pluto will give you the deep conviction to see it through all the way. Pluto, planet of manipulation and control, means that you may encounter these factors in your interactions with others at close quarters but you should stick up for yourself and your value structure will, after a period of disorientation, regenerate and strengthen. Cancerians born from the 4th-8th July or with 11-16 degrees rising will feel this vibration most strongly over 2015.
Early Cancerians will feel the beneficial effect of the Neptune transit in 2015. For you this means a pull to make sense of the mystic or unknown in more educated, philosophical, idealistic ways. Along the way, some of your pet theories and beliefs could slowly dissolve. You could become a pilgrim or spiritual seeker or you serve others with your knowledge or sage advice. Some of you may develop your communication skills and access a larger audience with your knowledge, compassion or intuition. Others may become interested in a particular place you feel is sacred or special. You could be drawn to mystical teachings, higher knowledge, or the arts. You may develop an interest in metaphysics, inter-dimensional travel or have telepathic experiences. You may discover that what you thought was written in stone as true you have been seeing through rose-tinted spectacles and is an illusion – maybe a mass illusion. There may be some confusion about your beliefs but doubt and skepticism are healthy, so test out theories before deciding what is truth for you. Cancerians born 27th June-4th July or with 4-11 degrees of Cancer rising will feel this vibration the most.
