Diana's Monthly Gemini Forecast for May 2014
SHIP IN A BOTTLE
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 be more aware of another’s needs or requirements and they 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 disappointed.
Until the 8th, Mercury is working from deeper levels and your mind tends to become introspective and more open to emotional or subtle energies. You may be a little preoccupied, and you could find yourself zoning out or just feeling mentally at 6’s and 7’s as things may be uncertain. At this time, you can do your best thinking in a restful, nurturing environment or in a private bubble with others. Also a good time for healing, spiritual or imaginative activities, so, listen to your inner guidance, hold the vision of how you want it to be, and move beyond what is now getting in the way of your happiness and wellbeing.
From the 3rd, Venus can create more favourable circumstances in business or career matters or with general goals and ambitions. Authority figures, bosses, parental figures will be positively emphasized as they will tend to see you in a good light and 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 with whom you forma a team. You yourself could be the one who takes a parental role and enables another to achieve their aims and ambitions. This transit may involve you in more artistic activities help you co-ordinate with another to achieve the master plan. You could team up with someone for your mutual advantage
From the 8th, Mercury is in your sign livening things up and putting you more in the stream of information exchange and mixing with others. There may be more paperwork or other things to get your head around. Communications equipment, vehicles, travel or transport might also be emphasized. A time to develop people skills and it’s important to express intentions or ideas clearly and accurately to others. 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. There may be moments of wild speculation and miraculous inspiration but just keep those feet on the ground.
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.
From the 29th, conversations tend to have a more practical slant. The piggy-bank, property or possessions may be on your mind.
A STITCH IN TIME
Saturn is transiting a 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 near the beginning of the last decanate or with 17-21 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
Until July, Mars is in a more spontaneous, and for some, romantic area, giving you the trigger to be more in the mood to take a chance on love or to speculate in other ways, but don’t risk what you can’t afford to lose. Mars tends to be hasty, so it’s best to sleep on something before making major decisions. There could be occasions when you feel at the centre of attention or more physically in demand. Your creative energy, or competitiveness should come to the fore. Whatever is going on, you could feel more in your power, more in touch with your child within but equally, you could be busy because of children or younger ones in your life. Overall this is the time to get active with projects you enjoy and which are rewarding and empowering. Great for the entrepreneurs and ‘creatives’ among you. Geminians born in the first/second decanate or with 8-12 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this month.
A FERTILE SOIL TO EXPERIENCE AND GROW
Take advantage of Jupiter in your area of piggy-bank, property and possessions until July to splash out on whatever might help you expand mentally or physically into fresh territories. Such decisions could teach you a great deal and even turn out to be lucrative or worthwhile in other ways down the line.
On another level, Jupiter here will help you decide what is of highest priority to you at this stage in your life‘s journey. He will help you to think positively about basic resources (money or property) and he will help you realize your own worth through opportunities for you to show others what practical abilities you have. Others are more likely to show appreciation of your property, possessions, talents or experience.
Geminians born in the first/second decanate or with 14-21 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
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.
During the long transit of Neptune through your career area you may end up being the ‘prop’ that others lean upon or you may sacrifice your own style or your own preferred plan to serve and facilitate another, and as long as you have separated the needy from the greedy, all will be well. Remember to respect and honour your own goals in life and integrate the practice of higher service as often as you are able.
Geminians born in the first decanate or with 6-8 Pisces rising will feel the energy the most this month.
(Saturn, Neptune and Jupiter in water signs means you could be co-operating with others to make a dream into reality and a certain talent or resource could open the door to more abundance. Early Geminians may not be seeing something clearly enough to take confident action though. It may be a time to listen carefully to guidance, let go of ego and do what feeds your sense of personal integrity).

Starting today, and concluding on Sunday, the Moon is cooperating with Neptune.

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.
