Diana's Monthly Libra Forecast for October 2016
Until the 23rd is a powerful time for you with the Sun in your sign. A good time for taking stock and reviewing the dance of life over the past year, and also thinking about the future. In general, the way should be clearer to improve things for yourself personally and definitely to be more ‘self‘ centred, doing whatever is most supportive of physically, mentally and spiritually. Also to give more time and energy to aims and ambitions close to your heart and feel the empowerment that brings. .
Until the 7th Mercury is working from deeper levels and your mind tends to become introspective and more open to emotional or subtle energies. You may be a little preoccupied by things going on in the background of your life, and you could find yourself zoning out or just feeling mentally at 6’s and 7’s as things may be a little up-in-the-air. Zoning out isn’t necessarily a bad thing and, at this time, you can do your best thinking in a restful, nurturing environment or in a private bubble with others. Imagination and intuition are working well. Also a good time for healing, spiritual or imaginative activities, so, listen to your inner guidance, hold the vision of how you want it to be, and picture moving beyond what is now getting in the way of your happiness and wellbeing.
(Mercury and Jupiter at the beginning of the second week means it is easier to get the bigger picture or be more upbeat in your thinking).
(Sun over Pluto at the end of the second week could indicate intensity or a clash of wills/a letting go necessary before moving forward).
MEETING AND GREETING
From the 7th Mercury is in your sign putting you more in the stream of information exchange and mixing with others. A time to put those people skills to work as you outline intentions or ideas more clearly and accurately or listen with more care or perspicacity to what they are saying. There may be more paperwork or other things to get your head around and mental processes may be accelerated. Communications equipment, vehicles, travel or transport might also be emphasized. At times there may be so much coming at you that you feel a bit scattered so engineer quiet spaces for yourself whenever you can.
(MID MONTH there could be some surprises with Sun on the degree of Uranus).
THE MATERIAL WORLD
Until the 18th Venus in an area concerning money, property, possessions and other basic stuff. Overall, it means you can do okay in financial negotiations or making the most of assets. Buying/selling/renting/leasing tends to go in your favour and applying for funding or investments made under this transit can prove beneficial as long as you are sensible and don’t take a wild risk. You and a friend could be getting organized materially, or expanding into new territories and enjoying the trip. In general, Venus tends to ease things materially and can open the path between money or other goodies and you but, just make sure the traffic isn’t travelling more away from you than towards you – unless this is your choice.
From the 18th Venus is in a very sociable sector of your solar chart. She can help you to be articulate in your expression and tends to deliver environments or daily encounters which are more appealing or entertaining, even exotic. Some of you could be in exchanges with others who appreciate your self-expression or there may be more interesting daily encounters or more access to the art and beauty. Media is favoured as is anything artistic. This transit could bring warm, supportive relations with siblings or soul brothers and sisters. You (and another) can do better when buying/selling/promoting etc and if you want to settle a feud or negotiate for something, then you can be very persuasive.
(In the last 3 days Venus on Saturn means more restraint or a more formal feeling in how you are relating).
Mars is at the root of your chart. This means you could be busier than usual in and around HQ, or because of a property or family commitments. Physical effort may be needed right in your own back yard or there is more physical demand on you because of relatives, neighbourhood or community. Decisiveness, assertiveness or more stamina may be needed because of any of these possibilities. Mars in this area could mean a lot more coming and going within a locality even if it is not your usual stamping ground or there may be more hustle and bustle around you. As always with Mars, there could be moments of tension which surface now and again and affect your mood and you may find a way to use pent up energies in a more positive manner. Skeletons may start rattling in the closet and you have to ride the waves of emotional reactions or elements from the past have more impact or relevance to the present. On the other hand you may be putting your energies into something which connects you with society’s traditions, your own background, Mother Nature or the planet as a whole. For some, parents or parenting will be emphasized – especially the male side.
(In the 3rd week Mars on Pluto could lead to extremism or over the top expectations from or to you. However, difficult things can be achieved and ambitions can be successful as long as you are aware of another’s interests as well as your own).
From the 23rd finances, goods, property or anything which affects your material security or physical wellbeing now or in the future is likely to have your attention. So key themes are centred around ‘stuff’ – yours (or theirs), and perhaps protecting it, moving it, ditching it or acquiring more. Also seeing how to improve things in practical ways which may improve wellbeing – yours or another’s.
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 2nd-8th October or with 10-16 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
(The current Saturn/Neptune transit brings uncertainty into this area and harder work to clarify things and get organized so as to go forward in a confident manner. This may manifest through health matters, yours or another’s or daily duties. You have to put personal preferences on one side so as to assist or to adopt better health and fitness practices if it is yourself we are talking about. Equally, this transit may manifest through work activities. Co-workers, service providers (and health providers)can be elusive or vague at times. Your attitude towards work may change as you begin to see it more as a service. A nurturing, caring aspect comes to the fore and you gain satisfaction from the support or facilitation you are contributing. The best approach to be doing a job you genuinely enjoy, where you can be creative and fully engaged. That way, no matter what it is you are doing your work will automatically serve others).
Jupiter in your sign there to stay til Oct 2017. This means it’s time for a real growth spurt in your life and things could be taking off in (several) new directions and it will be up to you to be guided by what feels right. 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.
Librans born 25th Sept-5th Oct or with 3-12 degrees rising will feel the energy the most during this forecast period.
Uranus: Librans born 15-18th October or with 23-25 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
Pluto: Librans born 7th-10th October or with 14-16 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.

What today looks like:
Beginning today, and finishing on Sunday, your career area is clashing with your money sector, as the Moon is clashing with Venus. Your area of values, money, and personal belongings is being supplied with a possesive, tenacious sensibility by Venus in Scorpio. It may be difficult to cultivate your public appearance, or go for a raise, while this tough, awkward clash continues.
Elsewhere: continuing today, and concluding on Wednesday, Mercury is connecting with Pluto. Mercury sitting in Virgo may mean a critical, practical curiosity in your area of spirituality, subconcious, and mystery. While this easy, natural connection continues, it might be good to nurture your soul, or to look after your spirit.

- A conjunction between Jupiter and our Sun carries on today, and concludes on the 6th.
- Our Moon starts transiting Leo until Tuesday.
