Diana's Monthly Libra Forecast for April 2015
Until the 20th 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!
The Total Lunar Eclipse on the 4th indicates change and improvement related to goals close to your heart, health and wellbeing, (yours or another’s) a better balance in important relationships. The idea is to take a positive step in the right direction regarding this area on the 4th to set the intent for the following months.
Until the 15th 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 15th discussions, ideas and research tend to be strategic and could reveal deep insights. Communications tend to become more involved, intense, or have to be confidential. Your thinking could focus on the financial ramifications in a relationship or revolve around property or possessions belonging to or shared with another. There may be more paperwork related to an agreement or contract. At this time, some of you may be giving confidential advice and perhaps ‘sensing’ more than thinking as your gut knowing will be stronger.
Or it may be that you feel quite passionate about something or someone or, on the flip side, it’s probably easier for someone to push your buttons. Just trust your deeper instincts and try to avoid knee-jerk reactions.
Until the 12th Venus is in a place of emotional depth and something can touch your feelings deeply, or you can move others – great for the romantics and artists among 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.
Mars is in the sector of your solar chart which clears the decks for new beginnings. So one manifestation may be a letting go or clearing out. Whether it’s a re-think, a detox or a Spring Clean. Either way, this Mars position means coming up against conditions which provoke an inner shift and then an outer 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 but listening with your inner ear.
You’ll tend not to want to put all your cards on the table with some people.
BREATH OF FRESH AIR
From the 12th Venus supports relationships with those far away, or from a different background. Travel with a partner is possible. You are more likely to connect with knowledge or expertise which balances your perspective and helps you get the bigger picture. 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 wider stage. Publications or education could be emphasized or benefit you materially. You and someone may be on a bit of a learning curve together. A teacher or someone with a specialist field of knowledge could be helpful, possibly expensive, or, through their contribution you get a good deal.
From the 20th is a gear-shifting phase, but you‘ll probably be feeling your way forwards as you intuitively sound things out. You may have to be more conscious of another’s side of things. 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 what is the right thing to do.
Saturn, also in this area, is challenging you to work more consistently and routinely at speaking, writing, media, education, short distance travel. You should be developing communication and people skills – perhaps integrating a new knowledge or dealing more with deadlines or steadily growing your data-base. Maybe you are developing your people, writing or speaking skills or being more creative with your self-expression through art. Communications equipment or vehicles might pose problems at times. Any of the before-mentioned areas may be key to your success over the long-term. It’s also likely that you’ll be learning that often the ‘truth’ is no more than a ‘perception’ or a judgment which is time-bound and therefore finite. In other words it has an expiry date which changes with age and experience.
Librans born 25th-28th September or with 2-5 degree rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
STRENGTH IN NUMBERS
Until next August, Jupiter will help you grow and learn through new associations and friendships, or within a collective of others who have interests or a situation in common. New friends, colleagues or those with a shared outlook will expand your mind and your world over this phase. Equally you could be the enabler, teacher, guide connected to a key group of others.
Librans born 5th-7th October or with 12-14 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
Uranus: Librans born in the middle 10 days or with 15-18 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
Pluto: Librans born in the middle 10 days or with 14-16 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.

What today looks like:
Starting today, and ending on Monday, the Moon is tussling with Venus, as your friendships sector is clashing with your sexuality sector. There may be a stable, resistant inclination in your area of secrecy, shared resources, and sexuality, while Venus is in the sign of Taurus. While this tough, awkward clash continues, it might be difficult to come up with new ideas, or be with a different group of people.
Elsewhere: continuing today, and concluding on the 14th, Uranus and the Sun are joining in Aries. This powerful connection brings a prideful, individualistic motivation to your area of spouses, partners, and agreements. In close relationships, it might be good to meet a group for the first time right now.
Also On This Day:
- The planet Jupiter carries on a conjunction with the Moon today, which concludes on Monday.
- Mercury continues transiting Pisces until Monday.
- The planet Venus carries on transiting Taurus until the 11th.
- Our Sun continues transiting the sign of Aries until the 19th.

The moment to begin shifting gears on deep levels, letting go of the past and looking within.
Astrologically speaking, as one of the Cardinal signs, there’s a lot of planetary action continuing to affect your Sun sign in 2015 with Uranus and Pluto making a strong impact.
The Cardinal signs are the movers and shakers of the zodiac, and the way you handle what the universe is dishing up between 2011 and 2016, although it is generational, will, to an extent, set the precedent for what follows for us all further down the line…
With Uranus in your opposite sign Aries til 2019 and Pluto at the root of your chart for more years than that, the domestic set-up may change radically and there may be more intense interaction with a parent or related to a property. There may be a significant shift in the parental dynamic. Change comes your way through the ups and downs of partnerships or others you are close to and will cause your life to change in radical ways. Even though it may not feel like it at the time, it’s your subconscious that chooses how things are taking shape.
Venus will be in a long transit beginning around mid-year…
Venus is in Leo from June 6th-Oct 9th
This is a very sociable vibration which makes it a great opportunity to join with others in a group and, through the power of numbers, achieve something bigger than the individuals in the group. Or it could be the chance to make friends or useful contacts which have a beneficial or supportive effect on your life. Give and take with others and within a group or those with common interests or sharing a common experience. Connecting with others who have an interest or special area in common, in person, or over the wires may bring money or other desirable resources in your direction.
June 25th-July 7th holds great potential.
Jupiter is in Leo until August 11th
Things which have been on the back-burner for a long time can now start rolling forwards. Expansion will be via new associations and friendships, or within a collective with a common interest or outlook. This is the area through which you can learn and grow. An innovative and maybe unconventional approach will expand your world over this phase.
Your work schedule or personal social agenda could be bulging at the seams at certain points but you‘ll have to be careful not to overestimate or underestimate other’s intentions.
This is a very progressive area so the internet may be involved or something techno or at the leading edge in another way. Prepare to be amazed and inspired by innovative ideas or new equipment and inventions.
New associations and teaming up with others could be pivotal to your being able to move towards a long cherished goal. This energy could draw a teacher towards you, someone to guide or advise or someone you can consult for their expertise or refreshing take on things. Equally, it may be yourself who helps others move forward with new knowledge or experience.
All Libra natives will feel the energy of Jupiter this year.
Jupiter moves into Virgo on August 11th suggesting this will be a time to develop things behind the scenes, 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. 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.
Librans born up to mid October or with until 24 degrees rising will feel the energy the most over the forecast period.
Saturn began its new cycle highlighting your area of education, communications and self-expression on Xmas Eve
This suggests you will have to work in a more regular way at communications, media, education, short distance travel. You should be developing speaking or writing skills in a consistent manner and perhaps integrate a new understanding of language or a system of thinking. You may find communications equipment is challenging or a getting something off your chest takes longer than planned. Developing these skills will be like chipping away at a sculpture, so be consistent and patient. You’ll be learning that certain ‘perceptions’ aren’t necessarily based in fact and may not even be true. As you slowly get to the bottom of how much in your experience is perception and how much is ‘truth’, you may realize you need to make some changes to your own habitual ways of communicating or viewing the world.
Librans born up to the first week or with 0-13 degrees rising will feel this energy the most.
Saturn returns to her previous position June 14th-Sept 17th signalling that, at times, there are more challenges related to the material side of life. Obstacles will arise, delays will happen, disciplined effort will be needed to manage the piggy bank, property, possessions and to improve quality lines of supply whether that’s property, cash or vegetables. Gradually, over this period you can get things under control and life finally becomes more comfortable. But consistency, patience and true grit will be key. So keep taking those small steps towards better conditions now, surmounting the hindrances, which will stand you in good stead further down the line. It’s also a good idea to build upon your assets and that goes for your inborn gifts as well.
Librans born from 17th October or with from 27 degrees Libra rising will feel this vibration most.
Uranus and Pluto continue in hard aspect over 2015 orbiting closest to each other until mid-April, but the aspect is still close over the whole year affecting most strongly those born in the second decanate of your sign.
Uranus will be transiting your opposite sign for many years and during that time through partnerships and other close relationships, your life will be turned around and renewed in ways which are surprising and transformational. This transit will trigger events which help you to throw off the shackles of the past and surrender to the next stage of growth.
The Uranian energy has an inconsistency, a changeableness which may mean close relationships follow suit.
This could pan out as a special someone’s influence upon you has the remarkable effect of turning all previous plans on their head, or at least causing you to re-think parts of the old plan.
Or the energy may manifest as a certain someone introducing you to a special group of others, and your connection with them changes your ideas about what can or can’t be done. Or it may be that you are introduced to unconventional, revolutionary or more scientific approaches.
Someone in your life long-term could be undergoing change, and, because their situation is fluctuating it puts your relationship on a new footing. Or someone significant is having ups and downs in their life or are coming and going now you see them, now you don’t. Or you have a relationship which is dependent upon technology like the internet.
However the Uranian vibration is panning out it isn’t likely to be boring and whatever is manifesting from it may make you a little nervy.
So you’ll have to be flexible and open-minded as you adapt to changing conditions inwardly and outwardly. This is the spirit of revolution which facilitates your evolution and is part of a significant growth process even though it may be unpredictable at times.
This is also a time when you entertain wild ideas about a relationship but when the dust settles, you are clear about what you don’t want and therefore discover what you DO want in relationships and this will ultimately lead to a more settled, liberated life once the transit to your Sun is over. The main thing to remember is stay calm, and don’t act too impulsively. Librans born approx 4th-14th Oct or with between 11-21 degrees rising will feel this energy most this year.
Pluto, now in Capricorn, will urge you towards getting more control over the foundations of your life. Your location, your home and your family relationships will be affected as this strong energy takes root within you and comes to you from the outside. Problems from the past or childhood conditioning will most likely come up for some deeper scrutiny and you begin to understand the ramifications of certain inherited tendencies or emotional patterning coming down through the family line and how you may be expressing this in your everyday life. Some of these old patterns will be strengths but some will be undesirable and this energy will bring conditions which elicit change on inner levels.
In a more external way Pluto, the planet of death/rebirth, may mean your domestic set-up, place on the map or routines at home are changing in radical ways. There is also likely to be a fundamental shift in family relationships as the old loyalties give way to new ones through separation, death or new birth.
Relations with parents could channel the energy of Pluto through power struggles or the dynamic between the parents changes in a significant manner. This long transit of Pluto through your home area will change the most personal areas of your life and, as the basis of your life changes, so will your life direction and career alter as a consequence of this radical shift.
Librans born 4th-9th October or with 11-16 degrees of Libra rising will feel this energy most strongly over 2015.
The current transit of Neptune may mean you will feel a pull to function from deeper, more spiritual levels at work or with health-matters, yours or another’s. Some of you may become interested in Yoga, meditation and healing practices. Underlying this transit is a search for oneness and connectedness with all life. Some of you could have psychic experiences or strange encounters which are esoteric in some way. This long transit of many years may have you giving more freely of your services or working in more compassionate, spiritual, healing ways whether on a grand scale or right in your own back-yard. It could also mean you connect with boats, catering or anything providing a service to others.
Librans born 27th September- 4th October or with 4-11 degrees Libra rising will feel the effect of Neptune most potently in 2015.
