Diana's Monthly Capricorn Forecast for August 2014
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 be more conscious of another’s welfare, feelings or requirements. 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.
On the 7th, you do well to get active on behalf of others but also the dreamer in you can manifest a cherished vision.
You will have to push through with determination around the 8th/9th to take advantage of the wave of inspiration and progress coming from Uranus.
THE WORLDS WITHIN
Until the 16th communications tend to become more strategic, involved, or confidential. Your thinking could spring from deeper knowing or be more heart-based. You may also be mulling over the financial or property situation, a space, a venue, possessions belonging to or shared with another. There may be more discussions related to an agreement or contract and you have to liaise with another before the deal is sealed.
OUTSIDE THE BOX
From the 16th your mind may be more focused on distant places, travel, or another type of unfamiliar environment. You’ll tend to be thinking bigger and becoming more aware of fresh potential, or a distant horizon. This could be a good time to refresh your mental palette and think in bright new colours. A plan may be forming in your mind. There may be a breath of wind 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. Avoid major decisions on the 18th/19th you may be inclined to build castles in the air.
Until the 12th 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 but all relationships, personal, or professional tend to flow more easily. You and another could be enjoying eachother’s company.
From the 12th Venus is in a place of emotional depth and something can touch your feelings deeply, or you can move others – great for the romantics and artists among you. In general, it can mean things may become more intimate or ’involved’.
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.
Mars has entered a very future-orientated and sociable area of your Solar chart. You will tend to be the initiator with projects or you have a lot on your plate because of a group with interests or aims in common. Mars can be a bit pushy, so, on the flip side, there may be tensions between you and a friend or associate. Due to certain others, life becomes more demanding or annoying and you may have to be on the ball, competitive and decisive. Just avoid being hasty and don’t allow others to tire you out or push you into something you don’t want. This is a more progressive phase when things which have been shelved, sometimes for a long time, can start to move forwards again. Very technology orientated so things like the internet and the paraphernalia that goes with it could be emphasized.
Time to get the ball rolling.
SHAKING OFF THE COBWEBS
New potentials are in the wind until the 23rd. The Sun is in a more outgoing, expansive area which tends to raise the spirits and you see fresh possibilities outside of the routine box. 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. Travel or distant horizons could be emphasized and you may be making plans.
Aim for some down time to feed your soul on the 29th – worldly energies will be at a low ebb. But you have the ability to tune into what eluded you before.
Until the end of the year, Saturn is in a more helpful angle to your Sun sign. This means you can be more successful if you put a steady flow of energy into networking, group connections, friendships, a hierarchy or a social circle. Finding your place in the pecking order might be slow but if you accept that you can only integrate gradually, you can rise up the levels as you gradually establish yourself in the eyes of others.
Capricorns born in the middle decanate or with 15-19 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.

MORE TO PLAY WITH
Jupiter has begun his new cycle and will be putting a beneficial emphasis onto your joint financial area. Materially, your life could grow and expand through the contribution of key associations or a partnership. So this can mean more money, possessions or improved physical conditions made available to you, or that you find it easier to access them through a key relationship.
It may be a different financial strategy or set-up becomes a useful resource and it may be some kind of moral debt settled or financial debt is repaid.

First retrograde on 6th-28th February-Aquarius – Pisces.
Second retrograde on 7th June – 1st July – Gemini – Cancer.
Third retrograde on 4th-25th October Libra – Scorpio.
THERE WILL BE 2 SOLAR ECLIPSES IN 2014:
The first Solar eclipse of the year occurs on April 29th in your Solar 5th house
Make a new beginning through romance, an interesting pastime or leisure pursuit. Get more involved with children or animals or anything which brings out your inner child.

Make a fresh start through group interests or friendships. Take steps to achieve previously shelved future goals.
Astrologically speaking, as one of the Cardinal signs, there’s a lot of planetary action continuing to affect your Sun sign in 2014 with Uranus, Pluto and until mid-year, Mars/Jupiter all making an 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, although it is generational, will, to an extent, set the precedent for what follows for us all further down the line…
THE CARDINAL GRAND CROSS in April/May and Nov/Dec when Uranus/Pluto are closest will manifest important events which trigger yet another moment of choice as the mass consciousness shifts from the Piscean to the Aquarian Age.
Capricorn, with Uranus at the root of your chart until 2019 and Pluto in your sign for more years than that, opportunities to carve out a new life for yourself from the ground up will present themselves and that means certain behaviour traits and the role others are used to seeing you play will be changing as you align more closely with unconscious desires. Even though it may not feel like it at the time, it’s your choice what shape that future may become. Progress is likely to come through deeper insight or events which stir things up in the pit of your stomach and you should listen to that more ancient part of yourself.
Also, both Venus and Mars will be in long transits beginning late in the year………
Venus is in Capricorn from November 5th 2013 – March 6th 2014 which is good news for you Capricorn as the grace and ease of Venus will be influencing you personally. Others will tend to see you as more attractive or persuasive. Matters financial could ease over this period. This is likely to be a time for more mixing and mingling in a fun way and making friends. A great time for finding that special someone and, if there are feuds to settle this would be the moment but you are more likely to end up as piggy-in-the-middle.
Mars entered Libra, on December 8th 2013 to stay until July 25th 2014. Over this long transit, Mars will fire up your urge to be more dynamic regarding your ambitions, projects or general direction in life. This will be a period when you make decisions about where you are headed and then work very hard to get there. So you may have to bite the bullet, stop procrastinating and just get on and do it, but figure out your strategies as best you can in advance as Mars can be hasty and get you on the wrong side of authorities or powerful figures who may work against your best interests. Overall this transit of Mars could inspire you to upgrade image or reputation or improve your own authority or ability to lead. And, if you are decisive and energetic, Mars will help you do well despite his tendency to be controversial. But you may get hot under the collar with the powers-that-be, seeing them as inefficient, obstructive or too aggressive, so try to play down clashes and keep your powder dry until the situation demands decisive and energetic action. If you manage to keep your cool, be smart and not too hasty, you will make progress with the master-plan, but also with lesser goals and ambitions too.
Jupiter is in Cancer until July 16, 2014 when it enters Leo
Jupiter in your opposite sign – Cancer, and will be opening the way to growth through close personal or professional alliances. Because of one-to-one interaction 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.
Jupiter leaves Cancer and enters Leo in mid-July and in some ways this is when you are more likely to get what is coming to you through the resources of another. So it’s a good time to pool resources through a partnership, receive funding, improve your property or your overall material situation because there is someone there who you can team up with. Somehow, during this transit there will be sweeping changes which enrich life which can be fortunate for you over time, but, in the process, you will have to let go of whatever may be interfering with a more rewarding life and that includes your own out-moded ways of seeing things. This is when you need to practice the art of allowing abundance to come to you. Jupiter in this area of your solar chart until 2015 could open the door to spiritual and emotional regeneration. It is a vibration which heals old wounds – if you allow it!
All natives of your sign will feel the beneficial influences of Jupiter over 2014.
Saturn remains in Scorpio until Xmas Eve 2014.
Saturn began its transit of Scorpio in on Oct 6th 2012 and is now in a much more helpful frame of mind related to your sun sign. Now you need to put a steady flow of energy into networking, group efforts, a hierarchy or a social circle. Finding your place in the pecking order might be problematical at times but if you accept that you can only establish yourself gradually, you can rise up the levels and over time, establish credibility, reliability and cultivate useful contacts who help you achieve your goals. Along the way you will encounter challenges as you strive to integrate your individual wishes with that of others. You could feel sidelined unless you find a way to compromise. But if you continue to be diligent and consistent in the obtaining of your ideals you should get the results you yearn for. So it’s not what you know but who you know, and how well you dove-tail your needs with theirs over this lengthy period. Capricorns born from 5th January or with from 15 degrees Capricorn rising will feel this energy the most over 2014.
Uranus continues in a hard aspect to Pluto over 2014 orbiting closest to each other in April/May and November/December near the time of the Solar eclipses, but the aspect is still close over the whole year affecting most strongly those born in the second decanate of the sign.
Some ties with the past will be broken over the 7 year transit of Uranus here. There may be several changes of scene over 2014 if Uranus comes within range of an important point in your natal chart. Change and the breaking of familiar routines will be a governing factor and also this could affect the lives of kith and kin. Because of inner changes at the deepest level of your being, your foundations externally are rocked and you’ll have to adapt to different environment. You may feel ambushed from time to time but this is the spirit of revolution which facilitates your evolution and part of a significant growth process even though it may be unpredictable at times. After the transit has passed you will be able to re-establish more settled living conditions but, when that time comes, priorities will have changed and you will feel free of stuck emotions or a too rigid environment.
Capricorns born 29th December-7th January, or with between 8-17 degrees rising will feel this energy most potently in 2014.
The life-changing force of Pluto continues to be felt across your sign. Choices should be coming from a deeper place now. You’ll have an array of new options presenting themselves over the year to come -particularly in the first 6 months. You may be striving to project the most authentic version of yourself and what you stand for to others. You will feel more touchy about what you see as interference from others and there will be an urge to have more control over your environment.
Pluto is about power and how we use it and so, during this long transit, Capricorns will hopefully come to understand how to use that power for good and for what is best for them personally. Subconscious projections are bubbling up within you and may land upon unwitting others. You will be closer to the most primitive part of your knowing and to follow your gut instinct when making decisions. There may be a compulsion to turn the page, sweep aside the old order, overturn tradition but if this is not what is best for your personal evolution then you will have to turn your gaze within and uncover your own deeper motivations. You could become more interested in the occult or psychology or anything which helps you to regenerate your sense of self-identity. Over 2014 there will be an increasing urge for you to be free of outlived aspects in relationships or outmoded professional set-ups and be more true to yourself. Capricorns born 31st December-4th January, or with between 10-14 degrees of Capricorn rising will feel this energy most strongly over 2014.
During the current transit of Neptune, some of you may become more interested in psychology, the occult or mysticism. Maybe you will develop your intuition, imagination or artistic ability. You may become interested in metaphysics, inter-dimensional travel or have telepathic experiences. You may have more strong dreams both night and day. You may discover that what you thought was written in stone and an absolute truth is an illusion, maybe a mass illusion. There may be some confusion and things turn out to be other than what you had imagined, so remember that doubt and skepticism are healthy so test out theories before deciding whether they are true. Your imagination and creative potential can be increased but avoid allowing fantasy to colour your ability to see what is real.
Early Capricorns born until 24th-29th December or with 3-8 degrees of Capricorn rising will feel the effect of the Neptune vibration most in 2014.
