Diana's Monthly Gemini Forecast for November 2015
We still have the long-running generational aspect of Uranus/Pluto in challenging aspect to eachother albeit further apart. These two are responsible for mass social change. The status quo is shifting and things we have all taken for granted socially/economically/culturally is changing and those of us alive today are in the eye of that storm. This is an opportunity for those who are ready to awaken from a long sleep-walk, a chance for growth and new frontiers in belief systems, personal values, creativity and how we apply those against the unfamiliar background of a playing field where, at least, the goal-posts have moved or at most, the game has changed altogether . And there are more game-changing revelations to come over the years ahead.
So watch the spaces where Uranus and Pluto are transiting in your natal and sun-sign charts. And, you can even look at the positions of the signs under their rulership (Aquarius/Scorpio) to get a sense of which parts of your life may be most implicated.
This transit was hanging in the air much earlier this year. (Ebola outbreak, refugees, plucked out of seas and others had their way barred at Calais). Now it is rooting into the mass consciousness more robustly and will be triggering events, reactions and decisions made in response, over the coming 2 months or so. Also, at times in 2016.
Saturn is the planet of the status quo, physical boundaries and structures and Neptune is the planet of ideologies, victimization, escapism and of trying to do what is best for the common good even if it means hardship. But these notions are far too ambiguous for Saturn’s practical material nature. Saturn asks the ‘how’ and prefers to deal with the facts, the nuts and bolts. Saturn is also authority figures, and cares about appearances and keeping to historical standards. But Saturn is also a responsible Mother and wants to protect and provide for others.
These 2 planets are at such an angle that it creates friction, which creates heat which seeks an immediate outlet. They not only trigger events, but they demand dynamic effort to balance the conflict between them and to find a productive release to that tension.
Saturn is in Sagittarius at the moment. Sagittarius rules foreign lands, long journeys, unfamiliar territory and the Higher Law.
It seems to me that Saturn in Sagittarius and Neptune at home in Pisces brings a new kind of confusion, uncertainty about HOW to help the needy, HOW to resolve a tricky situation, without having the wool pulled over the eyes by the greedy. And how to execute the compassionate service required in an orderly, practical, structured fashion. So, our task is to balance our higher vision and emotional intelligence with realistic possibilities. This influence is underpinning events world-wide but also in our individual charts, so look at where Saturn and Neptune are transiting in your natal and sun-sign charts. I will mention the positions of these two transiting planets in your sun-sign chart below.
You can even look at the house positions of the signs under their rulership (Capricorn, Pisces) to get a sense of which parts of your life may be most implicated.
Also, in the individual chart the higher expressions of Neptune such as selfless service, charitable actions, healing and art, should be blended with concrete, practical solutions implemented in a gradual manner which are realistic and serve the common good.
Until the 23rd you may be dealing with more chores or niggly details, or, this may also 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 maintenance, repairs, or using skills. So, dealing with the ‘to do’ list and getting things organized better seems advisable, but there will be smiles along the way.
Until the 21st, Mercury is focusing your mind upon the practical aspects of life. Thoughts could revolve around, repairs, maintenance, or health – yours or another’s. Thinking about the mechanics of how something works 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.
From the 21st Mercury is in your opposite sign. Communications – personal or professional, in close interactions and collaborations are highlighted and you’ll probably be sharing ideas and connecting with someone’s slant on things and even if you disagree, at least it helps you clarify your own thinking. You may be in relationship with someone whose guidance or information is valuable. Or you yourself may be more looked upon as the information-giver, go-between, or guide.
Until the 9th 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.
From the 9th the position of Venus can mean a highly sociable period making new friends or capitalizing on old associations. Maybe a boost to your love-life, and some of you could be tying the knot with that special person. You are likely to express yourself in freer or creative ways and there may be happier connections with children, young people, pets or partners. In general, this energy links you more to anything you personally find empowering or satisfying. And, most importantly, puts you in touch with your own playful inner child. Leisure, performance or speculative activities may be highlighted.
Until the 13th Mars is at the root of your chart. This means you could be busier than usual in and around HQ, or because of a property or another location. Physical effort may be needed right in your own back yard or there is more physical demand on you because of family, neighbourhood or community. Decisiveness, assertiveness or more stamina may be needed because of any of these possibilities. Mars in this area could mean a lot more coming and going within a locality even if it is not your usual stamping ground or there may be more hustle and bustle around you. As always with Mars, there could be moments of tension which surface now and again and affect your mood and you may find a way to use pent up energies in a more positive manner. Skeletons may start rattling in the closet and you have to ride the waves of emotional reactions or elements from the past have more impact or relevance to the present. On the other hand you may be putting your energies into something which connects you with tradition, the family or tribal background, Mother Nature or the planet as a whole. For some, parents or parenting are emphasized – especially the male side.
A NEW SENSE OF SELF?
From the 13th 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. Mars tends to be hasty, so it’s best to sleep on something before making major decisions and don’t risk what you can’t afford to lose. There could be occasions when you feel at the centre of attention or more physically in demand. Your creative energy, or competitiveness will tend to 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 busier 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’ amongst you, and you may be more in the mood to invest time or resources on an outside chance.
From the 23rd you’ll benefit more from the support or contribution of another in close relationship. It’s not a time to be going it alone, so central to this period, will be how to get the best out of partnerships and other close associations. You and another could be teaming up or doing business together. But however it is for you, there is a stronger feeling of mutual interaction – or attraction!
In September Saturn returned to your opposite sign – Sagittarius.
This long-term position of Saturn is ultimately constructive for your sign but may manifest as you having to work harder, over the next 2 years, at balancing your point of view with that of a partner or opposite number. At times you will be keenly aware of a lack in this department and must strive for 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 a break-up then give thanks for what you have learned and shared and try to move on without carrying guilt or blame. 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 or to go to more trouble for a partner or someone near to you who is going through difficulties in their life.
Geminians born 24th-29th May or with 3-8 degrees rising will feel the energy the most this forecast period.
A SAFE HARBOUR
Jupiter is now in your home area til next September, highlighting expansion related to your place on the map, neighbourhood or a space inside or outside. Also this transit helps settle you emotionally and can create a sense of belonging and feeling more inwardly balanced. Outwardly, family and community relationships should improve and some of you will extend or make additions to your base of operations. If you feel cramped or restless where you are located, then, in general, it’s a good time for expanding the existing space or getting more access to somewhere you prefer, maybe abroad, or relocating altogether.
For some there will be a newcomer in the family or maybe you are accommodating others more often at home and need to rearrange the space. Whatever the reasons behind it this is a good time to make changes. Geminians born from 5h-12th June or with 15-21 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 should be rewarding. This transit favours imaginative art, good causes, healing and spirituality.
Geminians born 27th-31st May or with 6-8 degrees rising will feel the energy the most this month.

What today looks like:
Starting today, and finishing on Monday, our Moon is cooperating with Saturn. Our Moon present in the sign of Cancer may mean your area of finance, personal values, and property is supplied with a gentle, caring desire. While this beneficial, easy link continues, it may be beneficial to place value in a partnership, or to make a financial agreement.
Elsewhere: continuing today, and ending on the 13th, the planet Mars is clashing with the planet Pluto. Your area of pleasure, leisure, gaming, and creative self expression is provided with a compromizing, socialable action by Mars in Libra. It might be difficult to relax and rejuvinate, or have a good time in bed, while this trying, difficult connection continues.
Also today: beginning today, and concluding on Tuesday, the Moon is moving through Leo. For you, Geminians, this means a few days where communication, your local area, and achievments are fostered, and more familiar in your life. The Moon, when in Leo, provides a feeling which is expressive, and prideful.
Also On This Day:
- A conjunction between the planet Mercury and the Sun continues today, and concludes on Tuesday.
- Mars continues transiting Libra until the 3rd of January.
- Our Moon carries on transiting Cancer until Sunday.

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.
