Diana's Monthly Gemini Forecast for February 2015
MORE THAN CASUAL
Until the 19th was a gear-shifting phase, but you were probably feeling your way forwards as you intuitively sounded things out. You may have been more conscious of another’s welfare, feelings or requirements. Or 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 which is REALLY the best way to go.
A FRESH PERSPECTIVE
New potentials are in the wind until the 19th. The Sun is in a more outgoing, expansive area tending to raise the spirits and you see fresh possibilities outside of the routine box. Time to make plans and launch projects. 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.
A FRESH PERSPECTIVE
Mercury is expanding your mind and you should be entertaining options outside of the box. Discussions and or paperwork could be related to travel, higher learning 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 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 is retrograde until the 11th after then hold-ups decrease and things move along more smoothly in these areas.
Until the 21th 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 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.
Until the 20th, the Mars position indicates 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 take more responsibility about your direction in life and you care more about the impressions you make on certain others. Over this long transit you feel the need 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 un-co-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.
CONNECTIONS NEW AND OLD
From the 21th Venus warms friendships new and old and you feel supported as you move forwards with something you have hoped for, maybe for a long time. Fresh associations, networking, group gatherings or team efforts benefit from Venus’s sociable, helpful mood. Pooling forces and resources may be interesting, materially beneficial and, in general facilitate positive experiences.
From the 20th 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?
From the 19th the Solar energy theme means you will be taking your targets or overall direction more seriously or be more aware of outer image, how you present yourself and the impression you are making on others, or how something is representing you.
You may have to be more aware of the rules imposed by officials, parents, bureaucracy and anyone else to whom you have responsibilities. The overall idea is to project a good image and be consistent and responsible as you go forwards. Reputation or how you are packaging something may be emphasized.
IS IT ME OR IS IT THEE?
The long Saturn cycle will be more challenging and ultimately constructive for your sign and may manifest as you having to work harder at balancing your point of view with that of an opposite number. At times you will be keenly aware of falling short of their standards and must aim at improvement. At other’s you will feel very frustrated by another’s demands or behaviour which you feel inhibits your own or clashes with your will. Compromise, collaboration or cultivating certain relationships will have to be done gradually and will probably be harder work as you are learning to overcome your own prejudices or historical expectations, but this may be a make or break aspect for certain relationships. If it is ‘making’ the relationship then you will step into more commitment and responsibility towards another. Some of you will wish to formalize a relationship at this stage. If it is a break-up then give thanks for what you have learned and try to move on without bearing any grudges.
Geminians born 23rd-27th May or with 2-6 degrees rising will feel this 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 August. You may be on a learning curve developing yourself though education, speaking, writing or other forms of creative expression. There could be more 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.
Geminians born 4th-10th June or with 14-19 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
During the long transit of Neptune through your career area remember to respect and honour your own goals in life and integrate the practice of higher service as often as you are able and in whatever supportive ways you can.
It is more likely that you are a facilitator for others lean upon and, to enable them you may sacrifice your own style or plan to serve them, but, as long as you have separated the needy from the greedy, and maintained strong boundaries for yourself, this more service-orientated way of working will be rewarding. This transit favours imaginative art, good causes, healing and spirituality.
Geminians born 27th-30th May or with 6-8 degrees rising will feel the energy the most this month.

What today looks like:
Starting today, and ending on Wednesday, the Moon is clashing with Venus. The Moon sitting in the sign of Taurus might mean a feeling which is physical, and methodical in your area of mystery, sprituality, and privacy. While this awkward clash continues, it may be frustrating to meditate on your life, or to achieve something in private.
Also today: continuing today, and concluding on the 18th, the Sun is moving through the sign of Aquarius. For you, Gemini, this means a few of weeks where foreign people, deep enquiry, and long trips are more immediate, and present for you. The Sun, when in Aquarius, provides an agenda which is individualistic, and free-spirited.
Elsewhere: beginning today, and concluding on Friday, the Moon is moving through Gemini. For you, Geminians, this means a few days where your general outlook, and appearance are comforting, and nurturing for you. Our Moon, when in the sign of Gemini, provides a knowledgable, chatty desire.
Also On This Day:
- Jupiter carries on a square aspect with the Moon today, which ends on Tuesday.
- Venus continues transiting Pisces until the 20th.
- Mercury continues a conjunction with the Sun today, which concludes on the 2nd.

Diana's 2014 Gemini Forecast:
MERCURY RETROGRADES 3 times for approx 3 weeks each in 2014:
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 12th house
The eclipse energy favours artistic, spiritual or healing activities. Give yourself time for deeper introspection and do not be too open about changes you are feeling within but not yet ready to make.
The second Solar eclipse of the year occurs on October 23rd in your Solar 6th house
This eclipse will help you make changes on a practical, routine level. Start something new related to daily duties, at your place of work or with health matters. Clean up your act and look for an opportunity to be useful to others.
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.
Also, both Venus and Mars will be in long transits beginning late in the year………
Venus will be in Capricorn from November 5th 2013 – March 6th 2014 which may be good news for you Gemini as the potential abundance of Venus will be in a long transit through your joint financial area. You should do your best to make hay while the sun shines with finances or property matters and there is a fair cosmic wind blowing in your direction. You could do well in negotiations and get yourself a bargain during this transit. Someone could contribute useful advice or resources, or simply pick up the tab for you just when you need it. Make sure you realize this is a finite period in which you can do better if you play your cards right and do not expect things to stay the same forever. Overall you should feel more supported, emotionally or with other types of much needed resource or moral support. You should feel a deeper connection in a close relationship, and for some, this can be a sizzley time in your love-life.
Mars entered Libra on December 8th 2013 to stay until July 25th 2014. This is an extraordinarily long transit positively activating your area of children, creative enterprises, and romance. You’ll probably get more opportunity to be centre stage or be on the receiving end of admiring glances, or just shine in your own special way. Or you’ll be more in the mood to take risks and encourage others to do the same during the time Mars is in this creative, competitive and enterprising area of your solar chart.
Jupiter is in Cancer until July 16th 2014 when it enters Leo.
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 and you discover more about their worth in your life. Take advantage of Jupiter here until mid 2014 to underpin whatever might help you expand mentally or physically into new territories as it could result in better finances or more desirable resources. By casting your nets wider, you should do better in this area.
Jupiter enters Leo on July 16th 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.
All natives of the sign Gemini will feel the Jupiter influence but it will be more favourable after mid-July.
Saturn entered Scorpio on Oct 5, 2012 and will stay til Xmas Eve 2014 when she enters your opposite sign.
Saturn is now in mutual reception with Pluto which intensifies but also harmonizes their forces to a degree. Saturn in Scorpio indicates extreme caution and slow progress in the banking sector worldwide and the power mongers exerting tighter control not only over money but over other basic resources, governments and playing on the sympathies of the population. At the same time there is likely to be previously hidden facts brought to light which, after the muddy waters have cleared, regenerate those areas concerned.
For you Gemini, from Oct 6th 2012 Saturn began to manifest a tougher work schedule, or for some, more need to take health and fitness more seriously – yours or others. 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 will take work-methods, co-workers medicos therapists or service-providers more seriously now. Any of these may feel annoying or frustrate 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. Geminians born 5th June onwards or with from 15 degrees rising will feel this vibration the most over 2014.
Uranus is in a positive and opportunistic angle to your Sun sign and will happily be transiting it’s own house until 2019. It’s a sociable area related to collaborations, group gatherings and the collective mind – locally or over the wires. So it‘s likely you‘ll be hanging out with a different class of people with advanced knowledge or new circle of associates or mates with common interests. Fresh, even, ground-breaking influences may inspire you to think along very interesting and unusual lines. This is a very progressive part of your Solar chart and it could mean that hopes and dreams left on the shelf a long time ago will start to be mobilized.
This is also an innovative, alternative vibration which means you could discover approaches which are not mainstream, techno or just unfamiliar. This vibration also favours anything innovative through IT, sustainable energy, or other areas which put you at the leading edge. A previous structure may be replaced through new contacts and you’ll have to adapt to a sometimes surprising but interesting environment which accelerates the speed at which things happen – probably in short bursts.
Early Geminians will feel this vibration most strongly, born from 29thMay-7th June or with between
8-17 degrees rising.
For many years Neptune has been making its influence felt in the area of how you escape from the usual box. This is where you may have been most illogical or starry-eyed about exotic foreigners, education or a faraway place. Neptune has completed its transit of this area.
In Neptune’s new manifestation, it may mean you have to lay aside your own desires and make yourself available in a more selfless or nurturing way because it serves or promotes the good of others. But it’s not all sacrifice because this transit will be great for those involved in things like medicine, boating, hospitality, healing, spirituality, charities, catering and anything which serves a higher purpose or a common good. This vibration will also support you artistic Geminians and may spur you to greater achievements through flights of imagination. But sometimes you’ll realize you didn’t think things through clearly and you missed important details. And, when it comes to acclaim and a true valuing of your contribution, with Neptune here, it can sometimes mean you become ‘invisible’ and you may feel overlooked or unappreciated or perhaps misconstrued by others.
Geminians born 24th-29th May or with 3-8 degrees rising will feel this vibration the most in 2014.
The life-changing force of Pluto, now in Capricorn, means regeneration from deep levels over the next decade. There will be a letting go of the old scenarios which could relate to property, money or other resources you share or have shared with another. The old order is crumbling and the decks are clearing for a new dawn in material ways or with deep heart connections. You will be learning how to pick up the most valuable pieces from the past and move them into the future, rising, phoenix-like from the ashes. Some of you may feel more drawn to the mystical, hidden, spiritual side of life. Some will become more interested in psychology. And for others, this transit will mean an inheritance of some kind or when you can ‘cash in’ on assets or previous savings. It can also mean power struggles or turbulence related to assets, inheritance and your own true allegiances. Pluto’s position is a little demanding at times on the emotional level but by doing inner work and letting go of an old order, you can be reborn and, along with Uranus, make progress with something you’ve wanted to achieve for a very long time. Geminians born 31st May – 5th June or with 10-14 degrees rising.
