Diana's Monthly Libra Forecast for February 2015
Until the 19th your attention or concerns will probably centre around a base of operations, community or family or extended family. Property matters – buying/selling/home improvements may be a feature or it may be about a particular space. 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!
From the 19th there’s a brighter, less inward, vibration around. So that could manifest as more opportunities to be in environments with scope for play and enjoyment. Or to join with those out to have a good time. Or this placement could mean more emphasis is given to children, youngsters or romantic partners for some, and for others, there could be more socializing and maybe more contact with arts/entertainments or the leisure industry. You are more likely to feel the light of appreciation from others or be participating in activities you find fun or personally empowering.
Mercury is in a more innovative sector of your Solar chart and there’s likely to be increased communications either with or about young ones, lovers or pets. But, whatever you are doing, there may be more laughs or distractions along the way. Now you enjoy playing with ideas and speculating, maybe a little wildly, on this or that or the other possibility. Your creative juices are flowing and you are more articulate which may help with beating the drum on something. Trickster energy is stronger and games or pranks may be on your mind, there could be a false alarm or you are the butt of someone else’s joke. Also, you could be more romantically expressive or creatively inspired at this time. Mercury is retrograde until the 11th. After then, matters related to any of these areas should run more smoothly.
Until the 21st Venus is in a more practical mood, favourably highlighting teamwork regarding daily chores, health matters or running repairs. Others will probably be in a co-operative frame of mind assisting with your requirements. You are more likely to have reasonable interaction with health-providers, co-workers and anyone providing assistance and so if there has been an ongoing problem chances are you will find someone to help with recovery or repair and, even if the problem is not resolved, the interaction will tend to be pleasant.
DEVIL IN THE DETAIL
Until the 20th Mars is in a sector which emphasizes the practical side of any bright ideas and health-related matters. Considering how to manage, operate or fix – very practical and usually hands-on. You may be more involved with skilled people, health providers or bits of kit. So daily duties and methodologies are highlighted and you might have to get your head around the mechanical details. You can get a lot done if you keep up with daily duties, health matters – yours or another’s – and running repairs. Collaborations can be productive and achieve success but a co-worker or helper may try your patience. Still, it may be a small price to pay if you get your act together in the process.
From the 21st Venus is strong in her favourite place and affairs of the heart are favoured. You and someone could be feeling a closer rapport, no matter whether it’s a personal or professional association. A special someone could come into your life but all relationships, personal, or professional tend to flow more easily. You and another could be enjoying eachother’s company.
From the 20th Mars in your opposite sign means personal or professional exchanges are likely to be more dynamic and lively. Because of the agenda of another, there are more physical demands put upon you to be decisive or take action. You and someone could elicit strong opinions in each-other or, conversely, maybe you feel a strong pull towards someone or they feel a strong pull towards you. Once again patience may be needed as Mars here can make you too hasty, handle someone badly, throw caution to the winds, or make a false start. So the advice would be to try to keep things on an even keel and don’t dive in head first at full revs with all guns blazing before you are sure of your ground.
From 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.
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 developing your people, writing or speaking skills or being more creative with your self-expression through art. Communications equipment or vehicles be problematic, but be key to your success. 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-29th September or with 2-6 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 7th-12th October or with 14-19 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
Uranus: Librans born in the middle 10 days or with 11-16 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
Pluto: Librans born in the middle 10 days or with 12-16 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.

Diana's 2014 Libra Forecast:
MERCURY RETROGRADES 3 times for approx 3 weeks each in 2014:
First retrograde on 6th-28th February-Aquarius – Pisces.
Second retrograde on 7th June – 1st July – Gemini – Cancer.
Third retrograde on 4th-25th October Libra – Scorpio.
THERE WILL BE 2 SOLAR ECLIPSES IN 2014:
The first Solar eclipse of the year occurs on April 29th in your Solar 8th house
Make changes through partnerships or joint interests you share with another. Look more deeply into a mystery or research related to finances or property.
The second Solar eclipse of the year occurs on October 23rd in your Solar 2nd house
Make a start at improving the financial situation or anything which underpins an increased sense of material/physical security for yourself or another.
Astrologically speaking, as one of the Cardinal signs, there’s a lot of planetary action continuing to affect your Sun sign in 2014 with Uranus, Pluto and until July, Mars/Jupiter all 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. Sudden change affecting partners or others you are close too 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.
THE CARDINAL GRAND CROSS in April/May and Nov/Dec when Uranus/Pluto are closest will manifest important events which trigger yet another moment of choice as the mass consciousness shifts from the Piscean to the Aquarian Age.
Also, Venus and Mars will be in long transits beginning late in the year………
Venus is in Capricorn from November 5th 2013 – March 6th 2014 bringing support through family, neighbourhood or your place on the map. Relations with family or in the community should improve and you feel well-disposed towards them or in the local community. Some of you may have the urge to improve your home and embellish your environment making it more attractive or marketable and, other things considered, you could do well in a property deal over this period.
In late January until the first week of February Venus nearing the degree of Pluto could mark an intense period in relationships and there may be some deeper questioning, more sensitive feelings or a struggle for more control over a personal or professional relationship.
Mars entered Libra, on December 8th 2013 to stay until July 25th 2014. Mars will stay in your sign until July 2014. So, during that time you will probably feel in the mood to initiate things, get the ball rolling on improving image, health, or your pet ambitions. Mars will tend to boost your vitality and brings into sharper focus your objectives in life. For some, a love relationship could really start to heat up and demands more dynamic action. Looks like you are going to be very busy and somewhat in demand over this prolonged transit. Sometimes you could feel a need to push yourself beyond your limits as you are more impatient, but just don‘t make a habit of it and do not overdo things. You can make a great deal of progress during this phase and have quite an impact on others. You will be ready to step up to the plate, be more decisive and initiate things. You will work hard getting things more the way you want them to be on many levels.
Jupiter is in Cancer on until July 16, 2014 when it enters Leo.
As the year kicks off, Jupiter is in your area of career and overall life direction, meaning more doors swinging open, but not all will be leading to the road you should travel and you could be puzzling over which is the best way to go. It’s more likely you could become recognized over a wider stage. So it would be wise to situate yourself in the area and in the manner you prefer. You will be learning new things professionally and you should feel more established in your field or with your direction as this is a time when you can identify more with what you do for a living. Travel, foreign connections, higher education could be a part of the picture. This is a time to think bigger about what you do for a living or your overall direction in life and, during this period you may expand into amazing new areas.
Jupiter enters Leo and a very progressive area for you on July 16th. 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.
Saturn moved out of your sign on the 6th October 2012 marking the beginning of a more materially/orientated cycle during which, at times, you have been meeting 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 contacts, cash or vegetables. Gradually, over this long 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.
Saturn leaves here on Xmas Eve 2014.
Librans born from 7/8th October or with from 15 degrees Libra rising will feel this vibration most.
Uranus continues in a hard aspect to Pluto over 2014 orbiting closest to each other in April/May and November/December near the time of the Solar eclipses, but the aspect is still close over the whole year affecting most strongly those born in the second decanate of the 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 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 30th Sept-10th Oct or with between 8-17 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 3rd-7th October or with 10-14 degrees of Libra rising will feel this energy most strongly over 2014.
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 26th-30th September or with 3-8 degrees Libra rising will feel the effect of Neptune most potently in 2014.
