Diana's Monthly Capricorn Forecast for October 2016
Until the 23rd the Solar energy theme means you will be taking your targets or overall direction more seriously or be more aware of how you present yourself and the impression you are making on others, or how something is representing you. Traditions or social conventions may have more of your attention.
You may have to be more aware of the rules imposed by officials, parents, bureaucracy and anyone to whom you have responsibilities. The overall idea is to project an appropriate image and be consistent and responsible as you go forwards.
A FRESH SLANT
Until the 7th Mercury is expanding your mind and you should be entertaining new potential. Discussions and/or paperwork could be related to travel, higher learning or an unfamiliar environment. 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.
(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 necessary before moving forward).
THE LONG VIEW
From the 7th 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 also 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.
(MID MONTH there could be some surprises with Sun on the degree of Uranus).
A CHERISHED HOPE WITHIN REACH
Until the 18th 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. With a flexible, experimental attitude should be successful.
FEED THE SOUL, HEAL THE BODY
From the 18th there may be less opportunity to share your feelings in a spontaneous way, but more chance to find better ways to support yourself or others. You’ll tend to keep things to yourself and may be feeling undecided about how things stand in a relationship, or regarding finances or property. A good time, however to quietly and intuitively evaluate. In your comparisons, you could find emotions getting in the way of rational thinking. Others can be oblivious to what’s going on for you as you take a step back, touch base and, with Venus’s knack of finding the balance, any inner turbulence or physical imbalance can be gently ironed out. This transit means you are likely to be more the supporter of others, perhaps maybe pulling strings in the background. Also you are likely to feel more supported by some within the context of unique social circle or other special environment. It is likely you can benefit materially through others in these types of shared environments. A good idea would be to immerse yourself in nurturing pursuits which feed your being whenever you can.
(In the last 3 days Venus on Saturn means more restraint or a more formal feeling in how you are relating).
Mars is in your sign for the last time this year, which means the need for you to be decisive and to take action has been increasing. Or, if you are not in the mood, Mars tends to bring more hustle and bustle around you. More stamina may be needed but vitality tends to improve and, whether you like it or not, the goals and objectives are more obvious. Definitely the time to get the ball rolling on things – or just keep up! As Mars is about initiating things, whether you choose it or not, this is a time to be more dynamic and physically active and get on with what needs doing either out of choice or necessity. Some of you will get plunged into situations which demand assertiveness, leadership or just get you working harder.
Even though Mars tends to boost vitality, be aware that Mars can run you ragged and use up your time or sap your energy, if you do not harness it, so take the trouble to engineer enough down time for yourself and recharge those batteries. The advice is to be smart and customize things to suit you better and pace yourself so you will have the reserves you need to tackle life, balancing your efforts with enough R&R. Overall, this is your opportunity to get with whatever program you need to improve things for yourself personally. Mars does not like hanging around and so you should not procrastinate once you have thought something through, but impatience and overstretching your energies are Mars’ weaker side so just watch your step as you go forward and you can be successful.
(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 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.
SOWING SEEDS FOR THE FUTURE
Saturn now in the sign before yours, Sagittarius. This position of Saturn marks a time of preparation for when it enters your sign in late 2017. This is the time to tie up the loose ends from the past, face up to behaviours the consequences of previous set-ups which have become counterproductive and move on. You may be doing more inner work or chuntering away behind the scenes on something. During this transit, you may be called upon to support or provide a service to others more often, who in some cases, will not grasp just how much you are doing on their behalf or perhaps not realize how much background or personal work you are dealing with. Capricorns born 31st Dec-6th January or with from 10-16 degrees rising will feel this energy the most.
(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. During the long transit of Neptune through you 3rd house, you may be noticing things which eluded you previously. Little nuances and hidden meanings, in conversations or signs and portents in the heavens. On the down side it is easier for either you or others to get the wrong end of the stick – not good in a negotiation situation. However, as Neptune is in a wonderful angle to your natal Sun this is a brilliant time to let rip with your imagination, learn or teach art or healing, take an interest in counseling or charity work. For some of you your psychic ability will be stimulated. Overall, keep a flexible and open mind as new levels of consciousness beckon. With Saturn close by degree last month and this month, you should learn to believe what your gut feelings are telling you despite what others think or what you would have thought historically. Here is the chance to tailor what you convey to others in a structured, realistic manner providing, if you can, proof of what you are saying. It is possible others are being less than honest or clear in what they are communicating but with Saturn so close at the moment, they may be challenged to provide evidence themselves.
NEW DOORS OPENING
Jupiter is in your area of career and overall life direction until Oct 2017. This puts Jupiter in a good angle to your sun-sign. This means more doors swinging open, but not all will be leading to your highest good or worldly success, and you could be puzzling over which is the best way to go. It’s more likely you could gain more recognition and be learning new things professionally. By the end of the transit you should feel more established in your field or the die is cast regarding your general direction and that will be the time when you can identify more clearly with what you do for a living or your worldly responsibilities. Capricorns born 24th Dec-2nd Jan or with 3-12 degrees rising will feel the energy the most over this forecast period.
Uranus: Capricorns born 12th-15th January or with 23-25 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
Pluto: Capricorns born 3rd-8th January or with 14-16 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
