Diana's Monthly Leo Forecast for February 2015
Until the 19th it’s time to make yourself useful. You may be dealing with more chores or niggly details, or, this may 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 applying skills. So, dealing with the ‘to do’ list and getting things organized better seems advisable, but there will be smiles along the way.
From the 19th 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 bonding, teaming up or doing business together. But however it is for you, there is a stronger feeling of mutual interaction – or attraction!
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. Mercury is retrograde until the 11th.
After then, communications of all kinds will speed up.
Until the 21st Venus is in a place of emotional depth and something or someone can touch your feelings, or others can feel moved by you. In general, it can mean things may become more intimate or ’involved’.
Venus here could also manifest as a relationship helping you out materially or supporting you emotionally in major or minor ways. So, a good time to acquire and use resources to benefit your joint material interests with others. Negotiations could go in your favour and there could be deeper, more rewarding bonds with another. Some of you may feel like shifting into more commitment in a material or emotional sense – depending on your natal chart and on your own ability to create what you want. Also, a relationship could revolve around a shared space, possessions or property but things can be ironed out to mutual advantage.
TRUST YOUR GUT
Until the 20th Mars is in the sector of your solar chart which clears the decks for new beginnings. This Mars position means coming up against conditions which provoke an inner change. You could be intensely aware of the sensibilities or rules of others at times and you may have to bite your tongue or be more dynamically sensitive or confidential when it comes to a key relationship. Debts due or owed (moral or otherwise) may need a more decisive approach or maybe someone is being more assertive – even coercive – towards you. You’ll probably have to feel your way rather than ´think´ your way, and even though you are sensitive to another’s feelings or set of values, you want to stick up for yourself , and be true to your own values and inner nature. You are looking for a win/win solution.
However, you’ll tend not to want to put all your cards on the table with some people.
From the 20th Mars is in a more outgoing, expansive area of your solar chart. At key points over this transit you will be supported as you reach out for new horizons and fresh experiences, so this may be the right moment to launch a new scheme or enterprise or to go on a journey of discovery.
You will be gathering information or learning through doing, but also grasping certain things you didn’t have a clue about before. Some of you may be getting out and about more and this is a good time to shake out the cobwebs. Travel, connecting with foreign lands, giving or taking a course would be a good idea. Some of your physical energy may be needed as you push the envelope of daily life and get right outside of the routine box by stretching yourself mentally or physically.
SHAKING OFF THE COBWEBS
From the 21st Venus supports relationships with those far away, or from a different background. You are more likely to connect with knowledge or expertise which balances your perspective and helps you get the bigger picture. Travel with a partner is possible. You yourself may be valued or admired for your knowledge, know-how or guidance and this may be a good time for putting the word out on to a bigger stage. Publications or education could be emphasized or benefit you materially. You and someone may be on a bit of a learning curve together.
DEEPER THAN CASUAL
From the 19th is a gear-shifting phase, but you‘ll probably be feeling your way forwards as you intuitively sound things out. You may be more conscious of another’s welfare, feelings or requirements. You may also be weighing up what another’s side of things is in a financial, legal or moral sense. You could be musing over some deeper questions, but answers will come more through intuition than the intellect. Transition will occur when, through mutual action with, or challenge from another, your value structure (and instinct) tells you which is the best way to go.
Saturn, is in a very positive angle to your Sun sign until June. It can mean ultimate success if you take the long view and pay more focused, nurturing attention to creative activities or investment projects, also regarding the affairs of children/young ones, or a romantic relationship then you are on the road to building a solid and robust structure which stands the test of time. Equally, any leisure or creative activities may be harder to organize or you will have less time for them. A more disciplined, patient 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 will need to proceed in a more structured or organized fashion. Leos born in 25th-29th July or with 2-6 degree rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
PAINTING WITH A BROADER BRUSH
With Jupiter in your sign it’s time for a real growth spurt in your life as things could be taking off in (several) new directions and it will be up to you to grab what feels right to you. You will discover much through those from different backgrounds or belief systems, about their ways of seeing things, so, quite a learning curve! More travel, foreign cultures or higher education could be part of the picture. Just try to avoid trusting to luck or overlooking important details and expanding too far too fast. This is your opportunity to think bigger and reach for the golden ring on the merry-go-round of life.
Leos born 6th-12th August or with 14-19 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.

Starting today, and finishing on Friday, the Moon is cooperating with Jupiter. The Moon present in the sign of Gemini may mean your area of organizations, clubs, and social groups is provided with a communicative, chatty feeling.

Our Sun sitting in Aquarius might mean a free-spirited, quirky power in your area of partnerships, close relationships, and contracts.

As well: from today until Friday, Neptune and Mars continue joining forces in the sign of Pisces. Your area of secrecy, shared resources, and sexuality is filled with an enthusiastic, perceptive activity, during this powerful connection. Now might be a powerful time to contemplate your wishes where taboos and secrets are concerned.
Also On This Day:
- The Moon continues transiting Gemini until Friday.

Both Venus and Mars will be in long transits beginning late in the year………
Venus is in Capricorn from November 5th 2013 – March 6th 2014 which is in your area of work and health. Working relationships feel more supportive or you team up with someone related to a health matter – your own or another’s. You could get quite chummy with someone you liaise with related to daily duties, repairs, maintenance or health and wellbeing. And you feel more inclined to be of assistance to another in these types of situations.
Mars entered Libra on December 8th 2013 to stay until July 25th 2014. An extraordinarily long transit dynamically activating your area of communications and education. You’ll probably be flitting hither and thither in person or over the wires and making new connections or re-visiting old ones. Also keeping your ear to the ground and paying attention to feed-back. This is a great transit for study or teaching or developing your speaking, writing or artistic skills. You’ll be more inclined to be assertive and speak up when you want to get things off your chest and won’t be backwards in coming forwards with your ideas and opinions. The air can get a little blue at times as you cross swords with those with other opinions, but at least it helps to sharpen your mind and hone your own ideas. Be careful when travelling though as Mars here could encourage mishaps or hasty reactions. It also might mean problems with communications equipment or vehicles at times.
Jupiter is in Cancer until July 16, 2014 when it enters your sign Leo.
Letting go and forgiving will help you grow and add to the pool of goodwill for us all no matter how insignificant or difficult it may feel at the time. So, tying up loose ends from the past would be a smart thing to do over this period. This is also a good time for developing things behind the scenes, imaginative or inner work, particularly in collaborations and projects which teach you new things.
But this is also the area where you can be your own worst enemy, shooting yourself in the foot because you fall back into old habits, emotional patterns or beliefs.
Jupiter enters your sign from the 16th July signalling the beginning of a real growth spurt in your life when your mind will be opening to fields of interest which teach you new things. Travel, foreign cultures or higher education could be part of the picture. You’ll be entertaining new possibilities, looking to the distant horizons and thinking bigger. The expansive, benevolent influence of Jupiter will encourage a new understanding and could plunge you into unfamiliar scenarios where you learn a great deal. A good time to launch into new projects or a fresh enterprise. Also a time to look into legal matters in a major or minor way.
All natives of your sign will feel the influence of Jupiter over 2014, the second half of the year will be more favourable.
Saturn entered Scorpio on Oct 5, 2012 and stays until Xmas Eve 2014
Until the end of the year, you will feel the challenging and limiting energies of Saturn in Scorpio, each time she connects with an important degree in your natal chart. Saturn is now in mutual reception with Pluto in Capricorn which tends to harmonize their forces.
You have begun a 2 and a half year cycle of having to work harder at family relationships and being more cautious when getting along with others in a community or neighbourhood. Anything you have just been tolerating regarding your domestic setup, place on the map or with family members will now need your attention especially as the past may emerge in the present. Maybe you feel a lack regarding these areas.
Otherwise, you may be stuck in the past, have baggage which is restricting or have other commitments which feel burdensome. Effort may be needed to manage things at home, as you build a new or improved place for yourself in the world. The up side is that you can feel hugely satisfied with what you achieve and how you have matured emotionally.
Leos born from 7th August or with from 15 degrees of Leo rising will feel this vibration the most over 2014.
Uranus continues in a hard aspect to Pluto over 2014
With Uranus slowly transiting through an expansive area of your Solar chart, expect your familiar way of thinking and interpreting the world to change, maybe in ways you never expected. The key to this transit is to keep an open mind no matter how weird it gets. Certain realizations could be a revelation to you and you are inspired by the implications. You may already have noticed that plans for the future or certain aspects of life have suddenly taken you off in a new direction. A great time to study a stimulating new subject and you may find yourself more attracted to revolutionary or humanitarian movements. For some of you this transit will begin to help you achieve a long-cherished dream or ambition which has been on the back-burner of your life for a very long time. You may connect with others of like-mind with a particular outlook or expertise in common. Travel, contact with faraway places, languages or fresh fields of intellectual interest could radically change your life.
Those born between 31st July-9thAugust or between 8-17 degrees of Leo Rising will feel this influence most this year.
The new position of Neptune can lead to deeper fulfilment in love relationships and finding your soul-mate. An extraordinary ‘bonding’ can occur between you and another. In subtle ways, there is an old chapter closing and a new one birthing. Also, you may get interested in a dimension of knowledge which is mystical, supernatural – even divine. You are fascinated with the hidden subtext in all phenomena or you want to learn more about your own deeper psychological drives and motivations. The passing of someone will change your outlook considerably or a connection with someone already in spirit brings insight.
In a more material sense there could be misunderstanding or blurred boundaries around someone else’s finances, joint resources, property, or another’s values or priorities. You may feel obliged to sacrifice possession of a property a space, money, time, energy because of someone else. On a materialistic level the advice would be not to leave things to chance regarding property, money or inheritance. Be crystal clear about it and also be clear with yourself about moral obligations.
Leos born 26th-31st July or with 3-8 degrees rising will feel this vibration the most.
The life-changing force of Pluto, now in Capricorn until 2024 means regeneration from deep levels regarding employment, skills and health – yours or another’s. A good time to adopt practices which help Pluto regenerate your body. Over this long transit there will be a letting go of some old scenarios related to your daily work, the way you do your job or maybe it’s certain lifestyle choices which influence health. You may feel an urge to get control in these areas and there may be power struggles at times with co-workers, service providers or medical people. This energy of rebirth may also affect your employment situation or daily routines, there could be some tension around this and you may want to transform your existing situation so that it mirrors more closely who you are and what you’d like to achieve through your work. Try to avoid riding roughshod over the feelings or opinions of those in your care or who provide a service for you or with co-workers. You may also make better use of your inborn talents, developing them into skills over this lengthy period. Leos born 2nd-6th August or with between 10-14 degrees rising will feel this vibration the most.
