Diana's Monthly Libra Forecast for May 2016
Until the 21st is a gear-shifting phase, but you‘ll probably be feeling your way forwards intuitively and sounding things out as you go. 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.
Discussions, ideas and research tend to be strategic and could be revealing as you drill down to fundamentals and suss things out. At times, communications could become more involved, intense, or confidential. Your thinking could focus on sensitive issues like the joint financial situation or revolve around property or possessions belonging to or shared with another. There may be more paperwork or some rethinking 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.
It may be that you feel quite passionate about something or someone and feelings go deep. Or, on the flip side, it’s probably easier for someone to push your buttons. Just trust your deeper instincts, stay away from ego, and try to avoid knee-jerk reactions. Get to the basics within the current conditions.
Mercury is retrograde until the 22nd which means hold-ups or having to think things through more carefully.
Until the 24th 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 but also regarding material resources which come through another. Formally or informally 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.
BREATH OF FRESH AIR
From the 24th Venus encourages warmer more supportive relationships with those from far away, or from a different cultural background. Travel with a partner is possible or someone expands your thinking with their experience or background. You are more likely to connect with others who have a knowledge or expertise which helps you add pieces of the puzzle. This could be financially advantageous. 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 about something and it could prove to be lucrative. Publications or educational establishments could be highlighted and you and someone may be on a bit of a learning curve together. A teacher or someone with wisdom could be helpful, or, through their contribution and support you ultimately get a better understanding or material reward for your joint efforts.
Mars is retrograde all month which tends to mute the action and may cause some re-thinking. Those born either in the first week or with up to 8 degrees rising will be feeling the effects most. This is not a great time to initiate a competition or a fight you dearly need to win. If possible, wait until the retrograde is over.
Until the 28th Mars is in a transit of your Solar communications sector accelerating mental processes and firing up the way you express yourself. A great time for getting to know people, places or concepts.
Comings and goings may increase or you find yourself more in the stream of information exchange and this would be a good time to float a new concept or body of work. However, there may be tensions and you can feel overloaded with too much on your mind. Sometimes, it could feel that certain others are too impatient or over-assertive but, your own reactions may be too defensive or pinickity. It’s better to be measured and decisive in what you say, keeping lines of communication open rather than wasting energy wondering about someone’s deeper motives.
In general, there could be more correspondence or other types of paperwork than usual and flying hither and thither for business or personal reasons. Overall, you should start to feel more confident about making decisions or defining certain objectives more clearly. You can be proactive and successful with media, promotions, negotiations or simply speaking up for yourself in a more assertive way.
MOBILIZING ASSETS & TALENTS
From the 28th Mars is demanding you put more effort and decisiveness into getting organized in a physical or security-orientated sense. The piggy-bank, possessions or any other bit of territory may need a more motivated and decisive approach. And that may mean a more dynamic application of talents and skills. You could be striving to get your hands on certain things or places, but watch your step related to basic material security, money, property or possessions as Mars can be demanding, impulsive or too hasty at times. Your physical strength may be stretched or there may be tensions as you try to work through what needs to be done in a physical/material/financial sense. You may be more actively engaged in diet or health matters – your own or someone else’s.
A FRESH PERSPECTIVE
New potentials are in the wind from the 21st. The Sun is in a more outgoing, expansive area tending to raise the spirits as you see fresh possibilities outside of the routine box. Time to make plans or launch into projects. Some of you may have itchy feet, and with the vibrations increasing opportunities to escape the daily grind, this is a good time to get out and about more and try new things.
Saturn, is now in a positive angle to your sun sign until late 2017. This is the time when you work more consistently at education 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 but may be useful tools. Any of the before-mentioned arenas 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 4th-8th October or with 12-16 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
A CHAPTER CLOSING
Jupiter will be in your 12th house until September.
This is a good time for developing projects or tying up loose ends behind the scenes. For healing the consequences of the past, maybe figuring out what went wrong or why you keep falling down the same old holes in the road. Collaborations or projects which are nurturing and caring for others who may be leaning on you more than usual will teach you new things. However you are likely to grow into a deeper understanding by being the supporter in the background.
But this is also the area where you can be your own worst enemy, shooting yourself in the foot because you cannot change old habits, emotional patterns or beliefs. This transit will help you grow from within and, as all things are connected, add to the pool of knowledge and goodwill for us all no matter how insignificant or difficult it may feel to you at the time. Healing or spiritual practices or imaginative work is will help you reap the benefits of this transit.
Libra or rising sign Libra or those born 4th-7th October or with 12-15 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
Uranus: Librans born 13th-17th October or with 20-24 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
Pluto: Librans born 8th-10th October or with 16-18 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.

What today looks like:
Concluding on Wednesday, Pluto and our Moon continue joining in Capricorn today. Your area of instinctual behaviour, home, and family-life is filled with a comforting, tenacious feeling, during this intensive link. At home, now may be a good time to make career changes.
As well: continuing today, and ending on the 1st, Mercury is coordinating with Jupiter. Mercury present in Taurus might mean your area of joint finances, sex, and taboo is supplied with a stable, resistant notion.

Elsewhere: continuing today, and concluding on the 17th, Venus is moving through Gemini. For you, Libra, this means three weeks where investigation, and unfamiliarity are somewhat emotive, and more to your tastes. Venus, when in Gemini, provides an intellectual, curious inclination.
Also On This Day:
- The planet Mars continues transiting Sagittarius until Friday.
- Starting today and concluding on Saturday, Neptune is in a sextile aspect with Mercury.
- Starting today and ending on Wednesday, the planet Uranus is in a square aspect with the Moon.
