Diana's Monthly Leo Forecast for June 2015
Until the 22nd the Solar energy makes it a forward moving phase when friendships, contacts new and old, or more involvement within a community of others of like mind could be a key feature. A future-orientated phase when you may be working to realize an idea or ideal which has been on the backburner for a long time. Networking, group connections and technology could also be highlighted.
This is period in which to discuss, consider, and generally chew the fat in the company of others. Others could find you articulate and your ideas interesting and you feel in an experimental mood as you explore different ideas or avenues of expression. You could be surprised at by another’s style or unusual take on things. Equally they could experience you as unfamiliar or unconventional.
Mercury continues to retrograde until the 11th. A good time to separate the wheat from the chaff within a group of contacts, associations or friends as you may need a good buddy or useful contact to facilitate your progress. From the 11th things come more into focus and connections become more enlightening.
Until the 6th Venus is transiting a more background area of your Solar chart and you’ll tend to keep your feelings to yourself and may be pondering things – perhaps in the company of another, or quietly weighing up what someone or something is really worth to you. You could be feeling nostalgic or finding emotions are getting in the way of the present. Others can be oblivious to what’s going on for you so take a step back, touch base with yourself and, with Venus’s knack of finding the balance, you can gently iron out any inner turbulence. A good idea would be to immerse yourself in nurturing pursuits which feed your soul.
GOOD IN YOUR SKIN
From the 6th Venus comes into your sign until October, supporting a more gregarious, sociable mood and could boost your love-life and other close relationships. Meeting the world with more ease and enthusiasm after the previous phase which was less certain and more introspective. Reaching out more to connect with others and some of you could be tying the knot with a loved one.
Professional 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 work the energy to your advantage and reap the potential benefits.
Until the 25th Mars is transiting a very future-orientated and sociable area of your Solar chart. You will tend to be the initiator with projects or you have a more dynamic interaction within a group who have interests or aims in common. Mars can be a bit pushy, so, on the flip side, there may be tensions between you and a friend or a member or the group. Due to certain others, life becomes more demanding or annoying and you may have to be on the ball, competitive and decisive. Just avoid being hasty and don’t allow others to tire you out or push you into something you don’t want. This is a more progressive phase when things which have been shelved, sometimes for a long time, can start to move forwards again. Can be technology orientated so things like the internet and the paraphernalia that goes with it could be emphasized. Time to get the ball rolling?
SERVING THE COMMON GOOD
From the 25th Mars 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 making yourself available for something bigger than you are, or just carrying out routine check-ups or following healthy practices. But that’s alright for this is a karmic house which is about selflessness. This is a time for nurture, healing and support either through you or for you.
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 so you sustain the energy and enthusiasm you need to be of service where necessary.
From the 22nd 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 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 let yourself down. A great time for nurturing, healing pursuits and for making improvements to health and fitness.
SKELETONS IN THE CLOSET
Saturn returns to her previous position until October and is challenging you to take responsibility for the dust swept under the rug from the past. Therapeutic work triggers inner change and, externally, a more body-centred approach through healthy practices should help you build better emotional/physical foundations.
Outwardly, you will have to meet family obligations and get along with others in a community or neighbourhood – any of which may be lacking in some way. Anything you have just been tolerating regarding your domestic setup, place on the map or with family or extended family will now need your attention especially as loose ends from the past may impact the present. Leos born 21st/22nd May or 21st/22nd July or 21st/22nd August with 28 degrees or 2 degrees rising will feel the 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 there but in other areas too. 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 7th-15th August or with 15-22 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.

What today looks like:
Starting today, and concluding on Friday, our Moon is tussling with Venus, as your communications sector is clashing with your spirituality area. Your area of spirituality, subconcious, and mystery is being filled with a value which is nurturing, and gentle by Venus in Cancer. It might be frustrating to meditate, or think about a mystery, while this trying, difficult connection continues.
As well: continuing today, and ending on Sunday, Mars is clashing with Neptune. Mars present in Gemini may mean your area of cliques, friendships, and organizations is infused with an activity which is communicative, and chatty. While this awkward connection continues, it may be frustrating to be with a different group of people, or to make unexpected changes.
Also On This Day:
- An opposition between Uranus and the Moon begins today, and concludes on Friday.
- Jupiter starts a sextile aspect with Mars today, which concludes on the 13th.
- Starting today and ending on Friday, Pluto is in a square aspect with the Moon.
- A conjunction between the planet Mars and the Sun carries on today, and concludes on the 12th of July.

Good to be taking steps to improve anything related to joint interests/finances/property, bearing in mind the other’s needs and requirements.
The second Solar eclipse of the year occurs on Sept 13th in your 2nd house
A time of fresh starts through finances, property, possessions and any your inborn assets.
Jupiter is in your sign encouraging a real growth spurt in your life. Your mind will be opening to fields of interest which teach you new things and it will be easier to see the overview. Your horizons will broaden through travel, foreign cultures or higher education. 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 spread your wings and 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 2015.
Jupiter moves into Virgo on August 11th 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 or opportunities and you discover more about their value in your life. Take advantage of Jupiter here to underpin whatever might help you expand mentally or physically into new territories as it could result in better finances or better use of your talents, now and in the future. By thinking bigger, you should do better in basic material ways.
Leos born until just past mid-August or with up to 24 degrees rising will feel this energy the most.
Venus is in Leo from June 6th- Oct 9th and during that transit there will be a happy collaboration with Jupiter in your sign between 25th June – July 7th, indicating potential success in a material, romantic or artistic sense.
Saturn left Scorpio and the root of your chart and entered Sagittarius on Xmas Eve
Saturn here demands you pay more serious, nurturing attention to your creative sel. Also to the wellbeing or education of children/young ones, speculative or investment projects, or a romantic liaison. These will need a more disciplined, patient approach to slowly come to fruition. So you will be taking the long view and thinking about the future. Creative interests or spare-time activities will need a consistent and disciplined input to achieve. Those of you involved in the arts or promotional or performance-type activities, should understand that a regular, methodical application will bring success in the long run, nothing will happen fast. In this Saturn cycle you’ll learn how to concentrate your energy into building new routines into activities you find empowering, enterprising creative or competitive.
IF YOU ARE A HOSTAGE TO HISTORY YOU CANNOT EMBRACE YOUR DESTINY
Saturn returns to Scorpio on June 14th and stays there until Sept 17th when she re-enters Sagittarius, there to stay until the end of 2017
Between these dates, you will feel the demanding 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.
This time period finishes the cycle which began in Oct 2012 of having to work harder at family relationships and being more cautious or challenged by conditions 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 one of 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 up to 4th August or until 13 degrees of Leo rising will feel this vibration the most over 2015.
Uranus continues in a hard aspect to Pluto over 2015
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 3rd- 14th or between 11-21 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 misunderstandings or blurred boundaries around shared 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. 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 27thJuly-3rd August or with 4-11 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 4th-8th August or with between 12-16 degrees rising will feel this vibration the most.
