Diana's Monthly Pisces Forecast for May 2016
Until the 21st 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.
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.
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 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 arts. Media is favoured as is anything artistic. This transit could bring warm, supportive relations with siblings or soul brothers and sisters. You also 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.
From the 24th Venus beams a friendly, sociable light into the root of your chart. This can manifest in various ways. Overall, it encourages a more harmonious time at home and you welcome others into your space or are more the visitor to others. Or, it could be a venue where you all meet up. It could be a good time to appreciate family or tribal connections, or maybe you like where you are located. You may feel the urge to beautify your surroundings or make more of your space inside or outside. Good for property search or relocation as long as other aspects are favourable.
SCHEMES AND PLANS
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 the Mars transit indicates a period for putting physical effort into achieving certain goals and ambitions. These may be career orientated or ‘via’ points on the way to where you hope to end up. Overall, this transit of Mars could inspire you to take more responsibility about your direction in life and you care more about the impressions you make on certain others. Over this transit you feel the need to work on image or reputation and reach standards which are demanded by those in authority, and, if you are decisive and energetic, Mars will help you get to where you want to go as long as his tendency to be controversial is handled. You may get frustrated with the powers that be as you feel they are slow, aggressive, inefficient or downright un-co-operative. If you manage to keep your cool and not be too hasty, you will make progress with the master-plan, but also with lesser goals and ambitions too.
From the 28th Mars is in a more outgoing, expansive area of your solar chart.
At key points over this transit you should in some way be reaching 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 physically active in 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. 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.
From the 21st your attention could centre around a base of operations, community or family matters or extended family. Property matters – buying/selling/home improvements may features, or it may be about the past in the present or sharing. 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!
A PLACE IN THE WORLD
Saturn has returned to the top of your Solar chart until late 2017. This is a more dynamic position of Saturn and not without its challenges. But, in slow stages, as you clear the obstacles, this will aid and abet you to redefine your place in the world, your image and life direction. This is the time of the harvest and you will reap seeds sown in past years for good or ill. You may feel you are not doing the work, projecting the image or receiving the recognition that you would like and you will be required to work harder at cultivating those in authority as a new structure takes shape. This transit may also emphasis the parental or authority figures in your life. If you are old enough, look back about 29 yrs or 14 yrs to get the gist of what is unfolding now by recalling where you were then and what happened next. Can be quite an eye-opener!
Pisceans born from 2nd-6th March or with 12-16 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
A NEW RAPPORT
Until September, Jupiter will be opening the way to a wider range of options via close personal or professional alliances. Because of key close associations your horizons will broaden. Others will be more interested in your knowledge and experience but, equally you will probably be intrigued by the fresh influences coming your way. Partners, colleagues, clients, friends could get you thinking more expansively and probably you will learn a lot through them. Pisceans born 2nd-5th March or with 12-15 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
Neptune is in your sign for many years. So during this long transit of Neptune through its home sign you may be called upon to put that sensitive, helpful side of your character more to help others or to facilitate them with their lives. It’s easier to end up being the ‘prop’ that others lean upon, but as long as you have separated the needy from the greedy, all will be well if you make stronger boundaries and integrate your own wishes too.
Pisceans born 1st-2nd March or with 11-12 degrees Pisces rising will feel the energy the most this month.
