Diana's Monthly Libra Forecast for November 2015
We still have the long-running generational aspect of Uranus/Pluto in challenging aspect to eachother albeit further apart. These two are responsible for mass social change. The status quo is shifting and things we have all taken for granted socially/economically/culturally is changing and those of us alive today are in the eye of that storm. This is an opportunity for those who are ready to awaken from a long sleep-walk, a chance for growth and new frontiers in belief systems, personal values, creativity and how we apply those against the unfamiliar background of a playing field where, at least, the goal-posts have moved or at most, the game has changed altogether . And there are more game-changing revelations to come over the years ahead.
So watch the spaces where Uranus and Pluto are transiting in your natal and sun-sign charts. And, you can even look at the positions of the signs under their rulership (Aquarius/Scorpio) to get a sense of which parts of your life may be most implicated.
This transit was hanging in the air much earlier this year. (Ebola outbreak, refugees, plucked out of seas and others had their way barred at Calais). Now it is rooting into the mass consciousness more robustly and will be triggering events, reactions and decisions made in response, over the coming 2 months or so. Also, at times in 2016.
Saturn is the planet of the status quo, physical boundaries and structures and Neptune is the planet of ideologies, victimization, escapism and of trying to do what is best for the common good even if it means hardship. But these notions are far too ambiguous for Saturn’s practical material nature. Saturn asks the ‘how’ and prefers to deal with the facts, the nuts and bolts. Saturn is also authority figures, and cares about appearances and keeping to historical standards. But Saturn is also a responsible Mother and wants to protect and provide for others.
These 2 planets are at such an angle that it creates friction, which creates heat which seeks an immediate outlet. They not only trigger events, but they demand dynamic effort to balance the conflict between them and to find a productive release to that tension.
Saturn is in Sagittarius at the moment. Sagittarius rules foreign lands, long journeys, unfamiliar territory and the Higher Law.
It seems to me that Saturn in Sagittarius and Neptune at home in Pisces brings a new kind of confusion, uncertainty about HOW to help the needy, HOW to resolve a tricky situation, without having the wool pulled over the eyes by the greedy. And how to execute the compassionate service required in an orderly, practical, structured fashion. So, our task is to balance our higher vision and emotional intelligence with realistic possibilities. This influence is underpinning events world-wide but also in our individual charts, so look at where Saturn and Neptune are transiting in your natal and sun-sign charts. I will mention the positions of these two transiting planets in your sun-sign chart below.
You can even look at the house positions of the signs under their rulership (Capricorn, Pisces) to get a sense of which parts of your life may be most implicated.
Also, in the individual chart the higher expressions of Neptune such as selfless service, charitable actions, healing and art, should be blended with concrete, practical solutions implemented in a gradual manner which are realistic and serve the common good.
Until the 23rd finances, goods, property or anything which affects your material security or physical wellbeing 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 on a practical, physical, material level which may improve wellbeing – yours or another’s.
Until the 21st conversations tend to have a more practical slant. Revolving around material matters, or basic physical needs and you may be looking into how to improve things or get your ducks in a row. Thinking will revolve around essential needs and gathering information about whatever would be best for yourself or others financially/materially. Plans may focus upon certain desirable resources or practical ways of achieving this or that result. You may be wondering how you can best express yourself creatively through material objects. Also, buying/selling, renting/leasing could also be on your mind at this time. And stuff! What is of most value to you and even how can make more of your natural abilities.
From the 21st Mercury is in a very outgoing, chatty area of your Solar chart but it’s also to do with communications equipment, media etc. Increased interchanges through speaking and writing are more likely, and possibly more paper-work. Overall, it tends to be a great time for making connections, learning and sharing new stuff, in person or over the wires.
FEED THE SOUL, HEAL THE BODY
You’ll tend to keep your feelings to yourself or be uncertain about where you stand in a relationship, or regarding finances or property. You could be mulling over the past and finding emotions getting in the way of the present. Others can be oblivious to what’s going on for you, and you should take a step back, touch base and, with Venus’s knack of finding the balance, you gently iron out any inner turbulence or physical imbalance. This long transit means you are likely to feel supported by others within a closed circle or other special environment It is likely you can benefit materially through others related to these environments. A good idea would be to immerse yourself in nurturing pursuits which feed your soul whenever you can.
GOOD IN YOUR SKIN
From the 9th Venus is in your sign, 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.
SERVING THE COMMON GOOD
Until the 13th 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.
READY TO ROLL
From the 13th Mars in your sign, which means the need for you to be decisive and to take action has been increasing. It also brings more hustle and bustle around you. More stamina may be needed but vitality tends to improve and, whether you like it or not, the goals and objectives are more obvious. Definitely the time to get the ball rolling on things – or just keep up! As Mars is about initiating things, whether you choose it or not, this is a time to be more dynamic and physically active and get on with what needs doing either out of choice or necessity. Some of you will get plunged into situations which demand assertiveness, leadership or just get you working harder.
Even though Mars tends to boost vitality, be aware that Mars can run you ragged and use up your time or sap your energy, so take the trouble to engineer enough down time for yourself. The advice is to be smart and customize things to suit you better and pace yourself so you will have the reserves you need to tackle life, balancing your efforts with enough R&R. Overall, this is your opportunity to get with whatever program you need to improve things for yourself personally. Mars does not like hanging around and so you should not procrastinate once you have thought something through, but impatience and overstretching your energies are Mars’ weaker side so just watch your step as you go forward and you can be successful.
From the 23rd the Sun is in a sociable, busy area and you could be meeting and greeting or connecting over the wires, corresponding, maybe sharing what you know or sourcing useful information, and probably running around more. It’s a time when you have more on your mind and maybe more to get your head around.
Saturn, returned to her previous position and will be 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 26th September- 1st October or with 3-8 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
A CHAPTER CLOSING
Jupiter will be in your 12th house until next 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.
Early Librans or rising sign Libra or those born 8th-14th October or with 15-21 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
Uranus: Librans born 9th-11th October or with 16-18 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
Pluto: Librans born 6th-8th October or with 13-15 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.

What today looks like:
Starting today, and concluding on Saturday, the Moon is clashing with Mars. Your area of motivations, careers, and society is supplied with a desire which is nurturing, and comforting by the Moon in the sign of Cancer. While this awkward clash continues, it might be frustrating to appear in front of an audience, or to make a public appearance.
As well: continuing today, and concluding on the 9th, the planet Mercury is moving through the sign of Sagittarius. For you, Libra, this means about two weeks where your local area, communications with others, and short trips are more interesting, and examined more closely by you. Mercury, when in Sagittarius, provides an athletic, faithful notion.
Elsewhere: beginning today, and ending on Saturday, our Moon is competing with Pluto. Your area of profession, society, and life-path is filled with a nurturing, comforting need by the Moon in the sign of Cancer. It may be a struggle to involve your family in your profession, or nurture your career, while this balancing act continues.
Also On This Day:
- Venus carries on transiting Libra until the 4th.
- Neptune starts a trine aspect with the Moon today, which ends on Saturday.

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.
