Diana's Monthly Leo Forecast for October 2016
From the 23rd the Sun is in a sociable, busy area and you could be meeting and greeting or connecting over the wires, corresponding, maybe sharing what you know or sourcing useful information, and probably running around more. It’s a time when you have more on your mind and maybe more to get your head around.
FIGURING IT OUT
Until the 7th Conversations tend to have a more practical slant. Revolving around material matters, or basic resources and you may be looking into how to get your ducks in a row. Thinking will revolve around essential needs and gathering information about whatever would be best for yourself or others financially/materially. Plans may focus upon certain desirable resources or practical ways of achieving this or that result. You may be wondering how you can best express yourself creatively through material objects. Also, buying/selling, renting/leasing could also be on your mind at this time. And stuff! What is of most value to you and even how can make more of your natural abilities.
(Mercury and Jupiter at the beginning of the second week means it is easier to get the bigger picture or be more upbeat in your thinking).
(Sun over Pluto at the end of the second week could indicate intensity or a clash of wills/a letting go necessary before moving forward).
From the 7th Mercury is in a very outgoing, chatty area of your Solar chart but it’s also to do with communications equipment, media etc. Increased interchanges, through consulting or negotiating is more likely, and possibly more paper-work correspondence etc. Overall, it tends to be a great time for making connections, gathering and sharing information, in person or over the wires.
(MID MONTH there could be some surprises with Sun on the degree of Uranus).
Until the 18th 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. You may feel the urge to beautify your surroundings or make more of your space inside or outside. With Jupiter in the mix this could be a fortunate time for property matters or relocation as long as other aspects are favourable.
From the 18th the position of Venus can mean a sociable more playful period perhaps making new friends or enjoying 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 more creative ways and there may be more frequent connections with children, younger people, pets or partners. In general, this energy links you more to anything you personally find empowering or satisfying so, leisure, performance type activities are emphasized. And, most importantly, puts you in touch with your own playful inner child.
(In the last 3 days Venus on Saturn means more restraint or a more formal feeling in how you are relating).
Mars is in the sector of your solar chart which clears the decks for new beginnings. So that may mean a de-clutter, or some kind of re-set is in the pipe-line. Or maybe ditching an ailing, stale or chronic situation thus clearing the decks for new beginnings . Whether it’s a re-think, a de-tox or a Spring Clean, this Mars position emphasizes something shared, or over which you do not have sole control. Then a shift, a transition as emotions or intuition drive a change. You could be more sensitive to feelings or needs of others and you may have to bite your tongue or be more confidential or strategic in your actions. For some Mars here may mean an intense or sizzley interchange with someone special.
(In the 3rd week Mars on Pluto could lead to extremism or over the top expectations from or to you. However, difficult things can be achieved and ambitions can be successful as long as you are aware of another’s interests as well as your own).
Until the 23rd your attention could centre around a base of operations, community or family matters or extended family. Property matters – buying/selling/home improvements may features, or it may be about the past affecting the present or sharing. 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!
Saturn is now in Sagittarius and will stay there until late 2017. This puts her into a positive angle to your Sun sign. Overall, it can mean ultimate success if you pay more focused, nurturing attention to your creativity, or playful, fun activities over the long-term. Equally, any leisure or creative activities may be harder to organize or you have less time for them or you have to be persevering to achieve success with them.
More responsibility regarding children, animals or loved ones may put a heavier burden on your shoulders. It may be difficult to show patience at times but a more disciplined, serene approach will help them bear fruit. It may also mean that, because of one (or more) of these examples you feel held back or limited in your freedom to frolic so you must proceed in a more patient, organized fashion. Then you are on the road to building a solid and robust structure which stands the test of time in any of these areas.
Leos born 1st-8th August or with 10-16 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
(The current Saturn/Neptune transit brings uncertainty into this area and harder work to clarify things and get organized so as to go forward in a confident manner. You may be more interested in deeper emotional patterns or spiritual insight but this is gradual and subtle.
More obviously, there could be misunderstandings over a sharing type situation, a joint contract or interests in common. This may be around property or finances. Certain aspects may be unclear or elude you completely so it is necessary to probe and dig deeper, get clearer about what is going on and be strictly business-like in what could be an emotionally charged situation. This will avoid misunderstandings or blurred boundaries in the near or far future).
FLIT LIKE A BUTTERFLY
Jupiterian expansiveness will tend to support a more outgoing, upbeat, positive frame of mind until Oct 2017. You may be on a learning curve developing yourself though education, speaking, writing or other forms of creative expression. You could be travelling more.There could be more interesting daily exchanges which are positive, revealing or there are more comings and goings to and from a locality which could be at a distance. New concepts, jargons and connections will be carved into your mental landscape between now and August. Leos born 25th July-4th August or with 3-12 degrees rising will feel the energy the most this forecast period.
A mention of Pluto’s long transit through your area of work and health since 2008:
At times you may feel there is an ongoing power struggle with someone or something not singing from the same page as you in the area of work or health.
This may become a long-lasting situation or condition where you feel you are not displaying the aspects of yourself you prefer, and this is due to the outside influence which is controlling and hampering you. Either a work or health-related condition (yours or another’s) which is holding you back.
In either case you need to pay attention. It is necessary to understand that Pluto is about regeneration through stripping down to the most basic layer. There will be no papering over the cracks when Pluto is around. If it is about health, then the answer will not be found by looking into the symptoms as mainstream medicine does. The answer lies in the causal level. To reach that level you have to delaminate down to the basics. In other words do a deep clean, a declutter and if that means deleting old programs AND detoxifying the body, then that is what you must do. It is a radical cleaning up of your lifestyle. Once the basic operating system is running better, then you can regenerate with new programs.
So, the good news is Pluto is the planet of transmutation and rebirth and you uncover this once you have followed a labyrinth and met the Lord of your own Underworld – what lies hidden in the body, the psyche or the type of work you do. Once you have dived deep, and struck at the roots, then you will retrieve the gift of good health, or the treasure of how to live with healthy daily practices at work or at home in a more balanced, productive way, tailored to your unique requirements. And although you may not get what you thought you wanted, you’ll get what you need.
During this forecast period, Pluto will be felt most by those born 7th-9th August or with 14-17 degrees rising.
Pluto will be in this area of your solar chart until 2024.

What today looks like:
Starting today, and concluding on Wednesday, your finance sector is battling with your sexuality sector, as the Moon is competing with the planet Neptune. Your area of joint finances, sex, and taboo is being provided with a contemplative, intuitive subtlety by Neptune in the sign of Pisces. While this contradictory, trying connection continues, it may be a struggle to buy something secretly, or pool your resources.
Elsewhere: continuing today, and finishing on the 13th, Mars is clashing with Jupiter. Mars present in the sign of Capricorn may mean your area of health, routine tasks, and jobs is supplied with an activity which is tenacious, and disciplined. While this awkward connection continues, it may be awkward to chat about a short trip, or to talk to your co-workers.
Also On This Day:
- Saturn starts a square aspect with the Moon today, which ends on Wednesday.
- The planet Venus carries on transiting Scorpio until the 17th.
- The planet Mars continues transiting Capricorn until the 8th of November.
