Diana's Monthly Pisces Forecast for August 2014
Until the 23rd 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.
On the 7th, you do well to get active on behalf of others but also the dreamer in you can manifest a cherished vision.
You will have to push through with determination around the 8th/9th to take advantage of the wave of inspiration and progress coming from Uranus.
Until the 12th the new Venus position can mean you express yourself in more spontaneous or creative ways. There may be happier connections with children, young people, pets or partners, and for some, a romantic relationship. In general, this energy links you more to anything you personally find empowering or satisfying. And, most importantly, puts you in touch with your own playful inner child. Social get-togethers may revolve around speculative interests, leisure, performance or art.
Until the 16th Mercury is focusing your mind upon daily schedules, the to-do list, and discussions, ideas or paperwork have a more practical slant. Thoughts could revolve around daily duties, repairs, maintenance, or health – yours or another’s. Thinking about the mechanical details of daily life will definitely be a keynote. Also you could be learning useful new skills or applying those you already have either out of choice or necessity. Around mid-month there could be a change which makes you aware of what’s missing or what is unnecessary.
From the 12th 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.
From the 16th communications – personal or professional, in close interactions and collaborations are highlighted and you’ll probably be bouncing ideas around with someone. You may be intrigued or less than impressed at someone’s slant on things but 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 at this time.
Avoid major decisions on the 18th/19th you may be inclined to build castles in the air.
A PROBLEM SHARED IS A PROBLEM HALVED
From the 23rd it’s not a time to be going it alone and you’ll benefit more from close liaisons. So central to this period, will be how to get the best out of partnerships and other close associations. You and someone could be bonding, negotiating or supporting eachother. But, however it is for you, there is more of a feeling of mutual interaction – or attraction!
Aim for some down time to feed your soul on the 29th – worldly energies will be at a low ebb. But you have the ability to tune into what eluded you before.
Mars is in a more outgoing, expansive area of your solar chart. At key points over this transit you will be supported as you reach out for new horizons and fresh experiences, so this may be the right moment to launch a new scheme or enterprise or to go on a journey of discovery.
You will be gathering information or learning through doing, but also grasping certain things you didn’t have a clue about before. Some of you may be getting out and about more and this is a good time to shake out the cobwebs. Travel, connecting with foreign lands, giving or taking a course would be a good idea. Some of your physical energy may be needed as you push the envelope of daily life and get right outside of the routine box by stretching yourself mentally or physically.
TESTING OLD IDEALS
Until late year, Saturn is in a supportive aspect with your sign. There may be some deep insights about your beliefs which have taught you a great deal already during this transit which began late 2012. You will be seeing the reality of who or what you idealized. Taking more seriously wider communications, literature, higher education, legal matters or long distance connections. Developing a new understanding will be gradual like chipping a shape out of stone. So be steady and patient. You may become more respected for your knowledge or style of communicating, but also appreciate and even wish to emulate others for this.
Pisceans born in the middle 10 days or with 15-19 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
STRINGS TO YOUR BOW
Jupiter will be in your area of health & work until next August and there will be no shortage of opportunities to learn and grow through employment matters, colleagues, daily duties, but also health and fitness. The indications are that you will get the chance to experience new work or health routines until mid-year. Employers or colleagues will tend to be more appreciative of your abilities and your contribution.
Neptune is in your sign for many years. So during this long transit of Neptune through its home sign you may end up being the ‘prop’ that others lean upon or you may sacrifice your own style or your preferred plan to serve and facilitate another, and as long as you have separated the needy from the greedy, all will be well if you integrate your own wishes too.
Pisceans born in the first decanate or with 6-8 degrees Pisces rising will feel the energy the most this month.

Venus and Mars will be in long transits beginning late in the year………
Venus will be in Capricorn from November 5th 2013 – March 6th 2014 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.
Mars entered Libra, on December 8th 2013 to stay until July 25th 2014. A long transit dynamically activating your sector of joint resources and shared property. Someone or something may get under your skin and cause inner pressures which you have to keep to yourself for some reason. It may be that you have to find a way to make the best of a situation where you do not have as much control as you would like and you search for a win/win solution. There may be disagreements about how to manage resources and you have to be strategic in what you do. Physical effort may be expended on getting things how you want them to be in these shared areas and you may have an encounter with someone or some situation which has a strong effect upon you. Depending on how helpful or unhelpful this feels you may do best by modifying your position regarding an agreement or contract, or look for the loophole in your situation which can lead you into better conditions. On another level, Mars here will help clear the decks of whatever is no longer relevant in your life. A good moment for a de-tox or a de-clutter. Also a good time to seek confidential advice or to be the bridge for another to move from discord into harmony.
This can also be quite a sizzley, transit of Mars and for some there can be an intense involvement with another.
Jupiter is in Cancer until July 16, 2014 when it enters Leo.
Jupiter, planet of potential abundance and expansion is very positively influencing your Sun sign until mid-July. This is a time when you when you may be appreciated more for yourself- and you can be more creatively self-expressive or competitive. It will encourage a more spontaneous, even self-indulgent, energy and could help bring romance into your life, or create conditions for a more entertaining, or loving environment – or both! You may grow through contact with children or animals or have more access to activities where your inner child can come out to play. Also this is a time when money can be made from speculative ventures or for making use of talents or other resources which tend to be positively enhanced at this time. You may be rubbing shoulders with others who are sporty or competitive, or have more access to a socially playful or performance orientated environment or lifestyle. You should feel confidence growing over these months as you tap into your personal power more.
Jupiter moves into Leo mid-July putting Jupiter in your area of health & work. This will bring opportunities for more satisfaction related to everyday tasks, the job set-up, techniques or health matters – your own or another’s. Others may tend to consult with you for your knowledge or skill in any of these subjects and, in general will tend to be more appreciative of your abilities and your contribution either way, work can become more fulfilling.
It’s likely that through everyday work or health and fitness your territory, physical or mental, will broaden.
Jupiter’s beneficial vibration could help your wellbeing as you learn what does and does not work for you on practical levels. The downside is that you might take on too many duties or overstep the mark with diet or exercise. Remember, moderation in all things.
All Pisceans will feel the Jupiter influence strongly at some point this year but from before mid-year is more favourable.
From 6th October 2012 Saturn began its 2 and a half year transit of Scorpio – a fellow water sign – and that puts it into a supportive aspect with your sign. Saturn will be in this transit until Xmas Eve 2014.
You will be working harder at literature, higher education, legal matters or long distance connections. You could be integrating new understanding of concepts, language, culture or a belief system. It’s important not to close your mind because you think there is nothing new to learn about any of these areas, or think that current understanding is correct simply because you cannot see beyond them through lack of experience. Developing an ideology or field of knowledge will be gradual like chipping a shape out of stone. Getting educated will be practical and visceral, so be consistent and patient.
One way or another, a different dimension will open to you through unfamiliar places or those with a different mind-set or background to your own. Pisceans born from 5th March or with from 15 degrees Pisces rising will feel this vibration most.
Uranus moved from your sign in March 2011 where it had been revolutionizing your life in quite surprising ways since 2003.
Uranus, will now bring changes to your finances and material set-up. Your value structure is changing and this will be reflected in occasional destabilization of finances and your basic material security. However, if you are open-minded and willing to try new methods- especially earnings connected to groups of others with interests in common, then you can be successful. It will now be a revolution in your thinking related to the material side of life and your changing priorities will liberate you from the old conditions which you now see more as a hindrance. Some of you may take a pay cut just to be able to work in a more stimulating, innovative or unusual way. Also a time to further your own talents or some crazy plan you may previously have put on the back-burner. This would be a good time to capitalize on an asset or a resource which could become lucrative for you but remember ‘quirky’ or ‘irreverent’ is also Uranus’s extreme expression so try not to go too wild. This energy also favours leading edge thought and technology so you could find a nice little earner working over the wires. Something in the sciences is well starred and you may be looking into economizing through utilizing renewable energy sources. Letting go of some material ballast would be advisable at this time as that would open the door wider to Uranus’s magical ability to conjure a windfall out of a clear blue sky. Make sure you stay vibrationally open to that potential. Pisceans born from 26th Feb – 7th March or between 8-17 degrees Pisces rising will feel this vibration most.
Neptune the ruling planet of Pisces entered its home – your sign – on the 4th February 2012. One way of many this influence can work is that all your Piscean traits are magnified. So that means amazing things like empathy, higher service, second sight or artistic ability but also a tendency to escapism, self delusion and silly idealism. It’s always up to you how you play the Neptune card. A strong Neptune in a chart can be about sacrifice, illusion and second sight. Celebrities or well-known people often have a strong Neptune as the public do not see them as they really are – ordinary, fragile human beings like you and me, but as super beings, Gods and Goddesses – which they are not. Being put on a pedestal and worshipped or not being appreciated for your real worth can feel hollow and phoney.
So during this long transit of Neptune through its home sign you may end up being the ‘prop’ that others lean upon or you may sacrifice your own style or your preferred plan to serve and facilitate another, and as long as you have separated the needy from the greedy, all will be well if you integrate your own wishes too.
But the Neptune effect in Pisces may mean you have to work harder to maintain your own identity to walk the path true to you and keep your feet on the ground. Over this long period experience will teach you when to draw the line in the sand and keep it real for yourself. That way you attract relationships based on your true inner needs and not some illusory sense of you. Pisceans born from 21st-26th Feb or between 3-8 degrees Pisces rising will feel this vibration most.
The life-changing force of Pluto now in Capricorn is in a good angle to your Sun sign. It means regeneration through friendships or a personal or professional social circle. There will be a subtle gear-shift deep within you as old doors close and new ones open and your long-range goals change. Also an old order is crumbling and the decks are clearing in preparation for a new dawn through friendships, social life, networking, and using the power of the collective to bring about change – major or minor – for yourself and society. Do not underestimate the power of Pluto to manifest through an encounter or a friend whose influence has a critical effect on the course of your life. The extremist nature of Pluto could get you mixing with those who are extreme in their views and you find yourself taking a direction you should not take. However Pluto can raise social awareness and bring about radical change in a good way too and its regenerative qualities will encourage more innovative approaches in your life. Pisceans born from 28th February-4th March or between 10-14 degrees Pisces rising will feel this vibration most.
