Diana's Monthly Gemini Forecast for September 2014
Until the 23rd, your attention or concerns will probably centre around a base of operations, community or family or extended family. Property matters – buying/selling/home improvements may be a feature or it may be about a particular space. In some respects your gaze will tend to be more inwards and you may be pondering more, or feeling things more deeply. Listen to your instincts!
From the end of August and into the first week of September your energies could dip or you feel there is more on your shoulders. You need to push through with sensitivity and faith as Neptune tends to fog the issues. There may be ambiguities swirling around which introduce doubt or illusions.
Until the 28th 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.
Don’t expect to come to any clear-cut decisions or do realistic evaluations about what something or someone is really worth until the second half of September.
On the other hand although things tend to be unfocused and pixilated this is a great time for intuition, spiritual or imaginative work and being kind to others when you are not in the mood.
Until the 6th Venus will be 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 distractions 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.
For the rest of the month 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.
There could be some jitters in the second week and you could be preoccupied but you should keep an open mind despite the tendency to get lost in one particular idea. Another may be trying to impose their opinions upon you which may encourage you to think more deeply and stick up for what is important to you. Maybe you or they feel passionate or convinced but wait until the second half of the month to get things in proportion.
DEVIL IN THE DETAIL
Mars is in a sector which emphasizes the practical side of any bright ideas. Considering how to manage, operate or fix. Also useful skills or bits of kit. So daily duties and methodologies are highlighted and you might have to get your head around the mechanical details. You can get a lot done if you keep up with daily duties, health matters – yours or another’s – and running repairs. Collaborations can be productive and achieve success but a co-worker or helper may try your patience. Still, it may be a small price to pay if you get your act together in the process.
From midmonth Mars in your opposite sign means personal or professional exchanges are likely to be more dynamic and lively. Because of the agenda of another, there are more physical demands put upon you to be decisive or take action. You and someone could elicit strong opinions in each-other or, conversely, maybe you feel a strong pull towards someone or they feel a strong pull towards you. Once again patience may be needed as Mars here can make you too hasty, handle someone badly, throw caution to the winds, or make a false start. So the advice would be to try to keep things on an even keel and don’t dive in head first at full revs with all guns blazing before you are sure of your ground.
But overall, co-operative or competitive interactions are favoured as personal or professional alliances can be beneficial and productive if both horses are pulling the carriage in the same direction. If your opposite number is not having the same transit in the same place (which is unlikely), then you may see them as indecisive, or dragging their feet. So sometimes you will just have to slow down and try to understand things from their point of view. Equally don’t let someone overtire you because the Mars energy is coming at you through them and you are trying too hard or spreading yourself too thin on their behalf.
Another’s willingness to take action with/for you can be invaluable as it may help you to be more effective and functional than if you were going it alone. During this extended transit, diplomacy and people skills need to be cultivated more.
STITCHES IN TIME
Saturn is transiting the same service-orientated area of your Solar chart until the end of the year. 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 would be smart. Generally it means harder work and more assistance to others on a regular basis or keeping things ticking over with general maintenance and repairs. 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.
Geminians born in the second decanate or early third decanate or with 17-22 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
FLIT LIKE A BUTTERFLY
Jupiter is in his favourite house until next August.
Jupiterian expansiveness will tend to support a more outgoing, upbeat, positive frame of mind. You may develop 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, connections will be carved into your mental landscape.
Geminians born in the second decanate or with 9-16 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.
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 in the first decanate or with 4-7 degrees rising will feel the energy the most this month.

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.
