Diana's Monthly Gemini Forecast for May 2015
FEED THE SOUL
Until the 21st the Solar energies could manifest as a pull towards things going on behind the scenes or in your private life – perhaps to do with the past or perhaps it’s a work in progress. You’ll probably have to put aside personal desires and become more aware of another’s needs or requirements, even when you are not in the mood. Others may not fully realize how much you are dealing with as the Sun is in a karmic house during this phase. But this is no time to cling to ego, as, if you do, you may feel let down.
MEETING AND GREETING
Mercury is in your sign putting you more in the stream of information exchange and mixing with others. A time to put those people skills to work as you outline intentions or ideas more clearly and accurately to others. There may be more paperwork or other things to get your head around and mental processes may be accelerated. Communications equipment, vehicles, travel or transport might also be on your mind. At times there may be so much coming at you that you feel a bit scattered so engineer quiet spaces for yourself whenever you can.
Mercury goes retrograde for 3 weeks from the 19th may block the flow so you may have to be more patient as you cultivate contacts or get better prepared before you proceed with your plans.
Until the 8th planet of love, material success and physical balance, Venus, is in your sign supporting a gregarious, sociable mood. Meeting the world with more ease and enthusiasm after the previous phase which was less certain and more introspective. Close relationships get a boost with more opportunities to mix and mingle successfully or connect with those important to you. With Venus here you will tend to come across as more welcoming and attractive – good news for business as well as your personal life. On the other hand, you could be feeling somewhat self-indulgent and inclined to treat yourself to activities, or purchases which boost morale or are a valuable asset. It’s not all easy-peasy with Venus, which also rules money and other material resources like possessions and property, and you’ll need to work to balance things, so just make sure that the flow of abundance is not flowing more from you than to you – unless that is your choice. Overall this is a good time to put yourself out there and work the energy to your advantage in whichever manner is most beneficial.
SERVING THE COMMON GOOD
Until the 12thMars is in a more inward and private area suggesting things could be busier behind the scenes or in a separate bubble with others. This is a dynamic energy and so you may be putting yourself out for something bigger than you are. But that’s alright for this is a karmic house which is about selflessness.
This Mars transit will encourage a more self-reflective mood where you will be mulling things over whilst in the midst of other activities. Mars here can dip the vitality and you may be feeling somewhat downbeat and talk yourself out of something which could ultimately be good.
This Mars transit will also stimulate the unconscious and your imagination as well as your ability to manifest what you want and shape things from backstage. You may feel happier if you take more time out for yourself to nurture or heal and it’s advisable to work alone whenever you can. Emotions and some frustrations may be nearer the surface and knee jerk reactions are more likely so this is something you may catch yourself doing. Those who take this onboard may just avoid falling down those old emotional holes in the road.
Because your energies are turned inwards, you are more easily affected by outside influences and can get sucked into other people’s stuff, their moods and opinions, so just be more self-protective at this time. Pay attention to dreams, visions, omens and coincidences. Mars here will also underpin practices like yoga, meditation, clairvoyance or healing, or indeed anything which takes you out of yourself which helps you sustain the energy and enthusiasm you need to be of service where necessary.
THE MATERIAL WORLD
From the 8th Venus is in an area concerning money, property, possessions and other basic stuff. Overall, it means you can do okay in financial negotiations as your people skills will tend to improve. Buying/selling/renting/leasing tends to go in your favour and applying for funding or investments made under this transit can prove beneficial as long as you are sensible and don’t take a wild risk. In general, Venus tends to ease things materially and can open the path between money or other goodies and you but, just make sure the traffic isn’t travelling more away from you than towards you – unless this is your choice.
READY TO ROLL
From the 12th Mars in your sign, which means the need for you to be decisive and to take action is has been increasing. It also brings 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, so take the trouble to engineer enough down time for yourself. 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.
SHINE YOUR LIGHT
From the 21st is a powerful time for you with the Sun in your sign. A good time for taking stock and reviewing the dance of life over the past year. In general, the way should be clearer to improve things for yourself personally and definitely to be more ‘self‘ centred, doing whatever is most supportive of yourself physically, mentally and spiritually. Also to give more time and energy to aims and ambitions close to your heart and feel the empowerment that brings.
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 21st-25th May or with 0-4 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 between now and August.
Geminians born 2nd-5th June or with 12-17 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 become more the facilitator for others to lean upon and, in order to enable them, you may sacrifice your own style or expectation, 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 29th May-7th June or with 8-11 degrees rising will feel the energy the most this month.

Diana's 2015 Gemini Forecast:
MERCURY RETROGRADES 3 times for approx 3 weeks each in 2015:
First retrograde on Jan 21st – February 11th – Aquarius 17-1 degrees
Second retrograde on 18th May – 11th June – Gemini 13-4 degrees
Third retrograde on 17th Sept – 9th October – Libra 15-0 degrees
THERE WILL BE 2 SOLAR ECLIPSES IN 2015:
The first Solar eclipse of the year occurs on March 20th in your 10th/11th house.
This eclipse covering the next 6 months, could trigger the Mercury/Neptune vibe in early Pisces. Just make sure you don’t get the wrong end of the stick because a communication was unclear or you confuse someone with your lack of clarity.
New beginnings with your worldly responsibilities and the ball rolling with things which you have waited to do for a long time.
The second Solar eclipse of the year occurs on Sept 13th in your 4th house
A time of fresh starts through family, property logistics, neighbours or community matters.
When Uranus/Pluto are closest until mid-April, it will manifest important events which trigger yet another series of choices as the mass consciousness shifts from the Piscean to the Aquarian Age.
Jupiter is in Leo until August 11th
This will be 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.
Geminians born from mid-June or with from 23 degrees rising will feel the energy of Jupiter in Leo the most.
Jupiter transits into Virgo on August 11th Jupiter in your home area inclines your life to expand through location, property, family connections and will also tend to cultivate more of a sense of belonging and inner balance. Maybe you will move, make home improvements or have access to somewhere you prefer. Perhaps changes are happening which expand the home-base or family or visitors are increasing and opening you up to fresh experiences of various kinds. Or maybe there is more contact with long-distance locations or a different culture.
In general, your comfort zone, family or community relationships should benefit. Your base of operations may change, and you could do well with a property exchange. Or you could be connecting with fresh influences near home or from home which are educational but also the world of others in your vicinity could expand as they learn from you and your experiences.
Geminians born up to mid-June or with up to 24 degrees rising will feel the Jupiter in Virgo vibration the most in 2015.
Venus will be in Leo from June 6th – Oct 9th which may be good news for you Gemini as the potential abundance of Venus will be in a long transit through your communications area. Make hay while the sun shines through creative self-expression, social life, media, education, negotiations and travel. Relationships with siblings and soul brothers and sisters will also benefit from Venus’s positive influence.
From Xmas Eve, until June 6th, Saturn is in your opposite sign, Sagittarius
You are completing a process which began around 14 years ago when you were redefining yourself and your world. Now, that sense of self is being tested and it will be a time of weighing in the balance which alliances are worth the greater effort now demanded from you.
So, this is a cycle of having to work harder at balancing your needs and requirements with those of others in close relationship, and, along the road, you may feel frustrated and limited by more responsibility for them – which may not be their fault – or narrow-mindedness which probably is their fault. Collaboration or cultivating others will have to be done gradually and will probably be harder work. Hidden stresses in the fabric of a relationship are more likely to be exposed and in some cases you won’t be inclined to paper over the cracks anymore and decide to move on. Another way this works is that you find someone you admire/look up to and wish to cultivate them as they can facilitate your ambitions….or…you decide to take the plunge in a love relationship and put it on a formal footing with all the organizing and forward planning that demands.
Yet another manifestation of this transit is you feel lonely, crushed, misunderstood either within a current close relationship, or you are bothered by the lack of anyone special in your life. The underlying message here is to restructure close relationships and accept a new framework. Conditions will arise which force you to confront your own flaws and weaknesses and scrutinize the way you habitually handle yourself in close relationships – are you underselling yourself? Or are you too controlling or too insecure? What are the expectations between you, the agreements, the underlying moral obligations? And ask yourself whether you and the relationship are still going in the same direction. Its Saturn’s job to ‘stress-test’ and show us the cracks wherever she goes in our chart and the fundamental test of this transit is to strive to meet your responsibilities in close personal or professional relationships as best you can, but, above all, honour yourself.
If you are old enough look back 29/30 years or 14/15 years when the decisions you made then may have a bearing on what is happening now. Geminians born up to mid first week or with up to 13 degrees rising will feel this vibration the most over 2015.
Saturn returns to Scorpio on June 15th and will stay til September 17th when she re- enters your opposite sign.
Saturn in Scorpio is 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.
From Oct 6th 2012 Saturn began to manifest a tougher work schedule with some knotty details becoming a bit of a challenge. Or, for some, there will be more need to take health and fitness more seriously – yours or others. This is the ‘stitch in time saves nine’ position of Saturn so it’s advisable to take practical steps despite the off-putting difficulties.
Generally it means harder work and more service to others on a regular basis and keeping things ticking over nicely with daily duties, 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 you because they are late or not there, or not to the standard you would like. It will be through them that you meet the tests of Saturn. Having said that…with determination you are likely to find someone really reliable with whom you can work in a gradual, step by step manner.
A great time for learning practical skills and applying yourself in useful ways so as to get useful results. Geminians born from 17th June onwards or with from 27 degrees rising will feel this vibration the most over 2015.
Uranus is in a positive and opportunistic angle to your Sun sign and will happily be transiting its own house until 2019. Uranus is in a sociable area related to collaborations, group gatherings and the collective consciousness locally,or over the wires. So it‘s likely you‘ll be hanging making friends with those who are unconventional or reformist or technological. Through a group or a friend with advanced knowledge your interests are changing. 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 realized.
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 4th-14th June or with between
11-21 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, or, you were being too materialistic in your thinking. 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 if you are stuck in your ego.
Geminians born 27th May- 4th June or with 4-11 degrees rising will feel this vibration the most in 2015.
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 occasional 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 4th-9th June or with 11-16 degrees rising.
