Diana's Monthly Sagittarius Forecast for October 2014
CONNECTIONS NEW AND OLD
Until the 23rd, the Solar energy makes it a forward moving phase when friendships, contacts new and old, or more involvement within a community or a group of kindred spirits could be a key feature. A future-orientated phase when you may be working quite hard to achieve an aim which has been on the backburner for a long time or on behalf of friends or a group. Networking or technology is also well highlighted.
Until the 24th, Venus warms friendships new and old and you feel supported as you move forwards with something you have hoped for, maybe for a long time. Fresh associations, networking, group gatherings or team efforts benefit from Venus’s sociable, helpful mood. Pooling forces and resources may be interesting, materially beneficial and, in general facilitate positive experiences.
Venus is transiting a more background area of your Solar chart and you’ll tend to keep your feelings to yourself and may be pondering a relationship or feeling uncertain about the finances or a 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 so take a step back, touch base and, with Venus’s knack of finding the balance, you can gently iron out any inner turbulence. A good idea would be to immerse yourself in nurturing pursuits which feed your soul.
TRUSTING YOUR INSTINCTS
Until the 11th 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, or within you 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 plan to move beyond what is now getting in the way of your happiness and wellbeing.
From the 11th Mercury retrogrades into Libra and is a period in which to discuss, consider, and generally chew the fat in the company of others. Others could find you articulate and your ideas interesting as you feel freer to experiment and explore different concepts or avenues of expression. Equally others could surprise or delight you with their fresh and unusual take on things.
READY TO ROLL
Until the 26th Mars now in your sign, means the need for you to be decisive and to take action is 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.
MOBILIZE YOUR TALENTS
From the 26th Mars is demanding you put more effort and decisiveness into getting organized in a practical material 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.
SHIP IN A BOTTLE
Until the 23rd, the Solar energies could manifest as a pull towards things going on behind the scenes or in your private life – perhaps to do with the past or perhaps it’s a work in progress. You’ll probably have to be more aware of another’s needs or requirements and they may not fully realize how much you are dealing with as the Sun is in a karmic house during this phase. But this is no time to cling to ego, as, if you do, you may feel disappointed.
SOWING SEEDS FOR THE FUTURE
In some ways, the current position of Saturn is a time of preparation for when it enters your sign at the end of 2014. You may doing more inner work or beavering away behind the scenes on something. You may be called upon to support or provide a service to others, who in some cases, will not grasp just how much you are doing on their behalf. This is the time to tie up the loose ends from the past, face up to behaviours which are counterproductive and move on.
Sagittarians born in the last decanate or with 19-25 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
A LEARNING CURVE
Until next August, Jupiter will be working happily out of his own house in your solar chart – the ninth. During this more serious time in your life, this is very good news for you Scorpio. Your mental territory is due to broaden and experience will mature you. Growth can also come through travel, foreign connections, wider communications through the spoken or written word, another language or academia. Also education, so being seen as the teacher or student or the disseminator of information, the advisor, or guide is more likely. A great vibration for broadcasting on to a grander stage, but also for getting involved in publishing, politics, legal issues or communications media. This is an expansive area and the boundaries of your known world will stretch into new territories.
Sagittarians born in the second 10 days or with 15-21 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
During this long transit of Neptune through your home area 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 that of another, and as long as you have separated the needy from the greedy, regarding family, neighbours or tribal members, all will be well if you integrate your own wishes too.
Saggies born in the first decanate or with 4-6 rising will feel the energy the most this month.

Diana's 2014 Sagittarius Forecast:
MERCURY RETROGRADES 3 times for approx 3 weeks each in 2014:
First retrograde on 6th-28th February-Aquarius – Pisces.
Second retrograde on 7th June – 1st July – Gemini – Cancer.
Third retrograde on 4th-25th October Libra – Scorpio.
THERE WILL BE 2 SOLAR ECLIPSES IN 2014:
The first Solar eclipse of the year occurs on April 29th in your Solar 6th house
Take steps to improve health – your own or another’s or get your act together with work. Be there in useful ways for others.
The second Solar eclipse of the year occurs on October 23rd in your Solar 12th house
Put your best foot forward to support others but also to heal and relax yourself. Take time out and involve yourself in something which takes you out of yourself.
THE CARDINAL GRAND CROSS in April/May and Nov/Dec when Uranus/Pluto are closest will manifest important events which trigger yet another moment of choice as the mass consciousness shifts from the Piscean to the Aquarian Age.
Also, Venus and Mars will be in long transits beginning late in 2013………
Venus is in your money house from November 5th 2013 – March 6th 2014 easing conditions in the area of money, property and material security. Venus is the great attractor so if you want to get your hands on something special then Venus will set her magnets on it. If you have had financial difficulties then this is a good moment to balance the books or make some kind of investment. If you curb the tendency to be more self-indulgent and aim for what is of most value to you in life Venus will tip the scales in your favour. You may be especially tempted by beautiful objects or property as this vibration can work either from you or towards you! A side-effect of this transit may mean you team up with someone who is supportive in practical ways providing for physical needs or ailments if health has been out of wack. Finally, Venus in your second house means it’s a great time to capitalize on assets and that includes your inborn talents. So if there is something within you that wants to come out this is the time to give it permission.
Mars entered Libra, on December 8th 2013 to stay until July 25th 2014. An extraordinarily long transit dynamically activating a very progressive sector of your Solar chart. This means you can get going with goals which may have been simmering in the back of your mind for a very long time. Mars will also activate friendships, teamwork, group efforts, and innovations in your life so this means you will have to co-ordinate your needs with others, but you have to find the right people to work with. If you don’t, then it will feel as if you are in conflict with the status quo. To use the Mars vibration most effectively in this house of your chart you should hook up with those of like mind and then pull together. Others may look to you as the initiator, spear-heading a movement towards the future. It may feel as if a cherished hope has finally got the green light.
Jupiter is in Cancer until July 16, 2014 when it enters Leo.
Until July 16th, Jupiter is putting an emphasis onto your joint financial area. Materially, your life could grow and expand through an association or partnership. So this can mean more money or possessions made available to you, or that you find it easier to access desirable resources because of a key personal or professional relationship or even a legacy of some kind. There could also be someone who helps you to establish firmer emotional or material foundations and the structure or support they provide is the launch-pad you need to achieve success. On another level, you could gain deeper insight into psychological patterns which helps to heal any trauma from the past. You could develop an interest in things occult or spiritual or uncover dimensions of life which have hitherto been secret or hidden from you.
Jupiter moves to Leo in mid-July putting it into a highly beneficial angle to your sun sign Sagittarius. There should be more opportunities for long-distance travel, increased involvement with foreign lands, wider communications through the spoken or written word, languages or academia.
Seeking knowledge and expanding your perspective or, conversely, others seeking your guidance or expertise is a far more likely. There could be more involvement with the law, politics, or communications media and disseminating knowledge across a broader stage – an excellent time to become a writer for example. Your awareness and knowledge base will certainly grow during this expansive period. Your views on ‘life, the universe and everything’ will change and mature unless you waste the Jupiter energy by stubborn adherence to your old opinions. Jupiter, the ‘learning through doing’ planet wants to grow your consciousness beyond its old, limiting prejudices and beliefs.
All natives of your sign will feel the Jupiter influence strongly at different times over the year.
Saturn began a new cycle from 6th October 2012, initiating a cycle of finishing off a chapter of life rooted in the past.
In some ways, this position of Saturn is a time of preparation for when it enters your sign in the last week of December 2014. You could be experiencing the consequences of past actions which affect your physical health or general well-being at this time. Skeletons could be rattling in the cupboard. Rather than brood over past mistakes you should focus on clearing away the remains of the old life. Ditch whatever is getting in the way of your future happiness, seek healing for what ails you for the current of the river of time is propelling you into new beginnings. Having said that there are always elements of your history which are good to hold on to because they bring joy and fulfillment. It is for you to decide what stays and what goes but, whatever it is should be tied up in a neat bundle to keep or to let go.
There is much you can do for the common good at this time but first you have to start with looking after yourself more and observing behaviours which may have you falling down the same old hole in the road every time someone pushes that button. Saturn leaves Scorpio and enters your sign on Xmas Eve 2014.
Saggie’s born from 7th December or from 15 degrees Saggie rising will feel this vibration the most in 2014.
Uranus has now moved into a great angle to your Sun sign Sagittarius. It puts an emphasis upon entertainment and perhaps more off-beat ways of having fun or feeling a part of a creative endeavour or innovative group who have a particular interest in common. New and unusual experiences teach you many things you didn‘t know before. There could be simulating hobbies on offer or a creative connection with leisure or the arts. Surprises may come through children, animals or a romantic relationship which get you out of a rut and breathes new life into old routines. You are kept on your toes and have to be flexible as their lives change sometimes in quite unexpected ways!! This is a good time for a joint creative enterprise and you are likely to encounter stimulating and inspiring experiences which help you approach things in fresh ways.
This energy also favours, creative work, a speculative venture where you may take a bit of a risk. Also anything innovative in the field of IT or some leading edge system of thought or technology.
Saggies born 30th November-9th December or with 8-17 degrees rising will feel this vibration the most.
The new position of Neptune which will last til 2025, means a more idealized or serene home environment, but the flip side of this is a feeling of uncertainty about family members or confusion regarding with whom or where you really belong or how much you can rely on things staying secure. On another level your home may become a place of retreat or sanctuary. It could also be on or near water. Saggies born the 25th-30th November or with 3-8 degrees rising will feel this vibration the most.
The life-changing force of Pluto, now in Capricorn until 2024 means regeneration of your material security. Over this long transit there will be a letting go of the old scenarios related to money or property or other sources of income. There could be a complete reversal of your previous value structure. The old order is crumbling and the decks are clearing for a new dawn in the material world which reflect more truly who you are and where and how you wish to live now. There will be a compulsion to have more control over this area of life and to establish more security than you had before. You will be learning how to pick up the pieces you want to keep from the past and move on into the future rising, phoenix-like from the ashes of the old order. You may also make better use of your inborn talents developing them to a higher level over this lengthy period. Pluto here will help you make a major gear-shift from one chapter of being to the next concerning material security but you must hold the vision of how you would like it to be.
Saggies born 2nd-6th December or between 10-14 degrees rising will feel this energy the most in 2014.
