Diana's Monthly Capricorn Forecast for May 2014
Until the 21st, there’s a brighter, less inward, vibration around. So that could manifest as more opportunities to be in environments with scope for play and enjoyment. Or to associate with those out to have a good time. 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 3rd Venus will be in a very social sector of your solar chart. She can bring ‘grace, fluency and flow’ to your thinking and speaking 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 which encourage creative self-expression or there may be more interesting distractions or more access to the arts.
DOWN TO THE GROUND
From the 3rd 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 theirs. Or, it could be a venue where you all meet up. It could be a good time to appreciate family connections and value the bonds you share either with them or your tribe. Maybe you just like where you are located. You could be getting more access to the beauties of nature, decorating a space or digging a garden. Perhaps feeling a little nostalgic, but this transit can help heal old wounds from the past, balance family relationships and bring more equilibrium to your emotions. Inwardly you should feel more balanced and aligned. There could be a new arrival for some of you.
INNOVATIVE THINKING OR WILD SPECULATION?
Until the 8th, Mercury is in a more innovative sector of your Solar chart and there’s likely to be increased communications either with or about young ones, lovers or pets. Whatever you are doing, there may be more laughs or distractions along the way. Now you enjoy playing with ideas and speculating, maybe a little wildly, on this or that or the other possibility. Your creative juices are flowing and you are more articulate which may help with beating the drum on something. Trickster energy is stronger and games or pranks may be on your mind, there could be a false alarm or you are the butt of someone else’s joke. Also, you could be more romantically expressive or creatively inspired at this time.
From the 21st it’s time to make yourself useful. 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 applying practical skills. So, dealing with the ‘to do’ list and getting the schedules organized better seems advisable.
From the 8th, Mercury is focusing your mind upon the practical side of life. The daily duties, discussions, ideas or paperwork may be on your mind. Thoughts could revolve around, repairs, maintenance, or health – yours or another’s. Thinking about the mechanics of daily life 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 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 near the beginning of the last decanate or with 17-21 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
A NEW DIRECTION OR THE MASTER PLAN
Until July, both Mars and Jupiter are transiting key areas of your Solar chart.
Mars is transiting the top of your chart. This Mars position indicates is a period for putting physical effort into achieving certain goals and ambitions. These may be career orientated or ‘via’ points on the way to where you hope to end up. Overall, this transit of Mars could inspire you to work on image or reputation and reach standards which are demanded by those in authority, and, if you are decisive and energetic, Mars will help you get to where you want to go as long as his tendency to be controversial is handled. You may get frustrated with the powers that be as you feel they are slow, aggressive, inefficient or downright unco-operative. If you manage to keep your cool and not be too hasty, you will make progress with the master-plan, but also with lesser goals and ambitions too.
Capricorns born near the second decanate or with 8-12 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this month.
A NEW RAPPORT
Jupiter will be opening the way to growth through close personal or professional alliances. Because of key close associations your horizons will broaden. Others will be interested in your take on things but, equally you will probably be intrigued by theirs. Partners, colleagues, clients, friends could get you thinking more expansively and probably you will learn a lot through them.
Capricorns born near the beginning of the second decanate or with 14-21 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
The life-changing force of Pluto is in your sign for many years. Choices should be deeply weighed within you. You’ll have an array of options presenting themselves and letting go of an old paradigm may be a necessity. You will be striving to project a more authentic version of yourself into the world. You will tend to feel more sensitive about everything and touchy about what you see as interference from others and there will be an urge to have more control over your environment.
Capricorns born in the beginning of the second decanate or with 12-14 degrees Capricorn rising will feel this energy the most this month.
JUPITER/URANUS/PLUTO early month
You may be feeling restless and looking for ways to be less hemmed in and freer to express yourself in the way you prefer.
Also, what do you have to chuck out in order to improve your life? What ballast do you have to drop in order to expand into fresh territories? What lengths will you have to go to in order to more fully inhabit the version of yourself you have now become?
This may be a time when you are deeply questioning things and being very honest with yourself about what is more worthwhile at this stage of the journey.+
(The current position of Saturn and Neptune will help boost your creative self-expression and help you experience a deeper understanding of which community or friendships you enjoy the most or are the most useful in your life. A new relationship may open your heart and mind to bigger horizons).

As well: continuing today, and finishing on the 5th, the Sun is collaborating with Neptune. Your area of leisure activities, fun, and unwinding is filled with a reliable, physical motivation by our Sun in Taurus. It may be good to have an enjoyable chat, or read something relaxing, while this easy, oppertunistic link continues.

Diana's 2014 Capricorn Forecast:

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.
The second Solar eclipse of the year occurs on October 23rd in your Solar 11th house
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.
