Diana's Monthly Sagittarius Forecast for August 2015
A FRESH PERSPECTIVE
New potentials are in the wind until the 23rd. The Sun is in a more outgoing, expansive area tending to raise the spirits as you see fresh possibilities outside of the routine box. Time to make plans or launch into projects. Some of you may have itchy feet, and with the vibrations increasing opportunities to escape the daily grind, this is a good time to get out and about more and try new things.
Until the 8th Mercury is expanding your mind and you should be entertaining options outside of the box. Discussions and or paperwork could be related to travel, higher learning or another type of unfamiliar environment. You’ll tend to be thinking bigger and becoming more aware of fresh potential, or a distant horizon. A plan may be forming in your mind. This could be a good time to refresh your mental palette and think in bright new colours. Maybe there is a breath of fresh air from further afield or guidance from those with specialist knowledge or just someone with a refreshing slant on things. Mercury enjoys this communicative sector which also emphasizes higher learning, publications and the legal side of things. Another way this transit might work is you take the opportunity to beat the drum about something, get the word out, be the guide or the guided, the informer or the informed.
PLOTS AND PLANS
8th-28th – discussions, correspondence and ideas may revolve around short-term plans or longer term considerations like where you are going from here in life. Career, worldly responsibilities, or bureaucracy could be highlighted. You may find your goals and schemes are being validated or rejected by the by the way things are unfolding across the wider stage – so keep your ear to the ground. You will be putting mental effort into expressing yourself in the best way you can so as to get the result you desire. Vehicles, transport or communications equipment may also be on your mind.
28th onwards – is 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 and you feel in an experimental mood as you explore different concepts or avenues of expression. You could be surprised at their differentness or unusual take on things. Equally they could experience you as unfamiliar or unconventional.
BREATH OF FRESH AIR
Apart from 19th July–1st August, when she will be favouring profession or status, Venus supports warmer more supportive relationships with those far away, or from a different background. Travel with a partner is possible or someone expands your thinking with their experience or cultural links. You are more likely to connect with others who have a knowledge or expertise which helps you get important pieces of the puzzle. This could be financially advantageous. You yourself may be valued or admired for your knowledge, know-how or guidance and this may be a good time for putting the word out on to a wider stage about something and it could prove to be lucrative. Publications or educational establishments could be highlighted and you and someone may be on a bit of a learning curve together. A teacher or someone with wisdom could be helpful, or, through their contribution and support you ultimately get a better understanding or material reward for your joint efforts.
Until the 9th Mars is in the sector of your solar chart which clears the decks for new beginnings. So one manifestation may be a de-clutter, letting go or regenerating an ailing or stale situation. Whether it’s a re-think, a de-tox or a Spring Clean, this Mars position means coming up against pre-existing conditions, behaviours or requirements which provoke an inner shift and emotions drive an outer change. You could be intensely aware of the feeling or needs of others at times and you may have to bite your tongue or be more confidential or shrewd.
Debts due or owed (moral or otherwise) may need a more decisive approach or maybe someone is being more assertive – even coercive – towards you. You’ll probably have to feel your way rather than ´think´ your way, and even though you are aware of others’ feelings , values or expectations, you want to stick up for yourself , and be true to your own values and inner nature. You are looking for a win/win solution but listening with your inner ear and seeing with your third eye.
You’ll tend not to want to put all your cards on the table with some people.
From the 9th Mars is in a more outgoing, expansive area of your solar chart. This means you leave behind the time of inner turbulence and begin to step into the light of more mental and emotional clarity.
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.
THE LONG VIEW
From the 23rd the Solar energy theme means you will be taking your targets or overall direction more seriously or be more aware of how you present yourself and the impression you are making on others, or how something is representing you. Traditions or social conventions may have more of your attention.
You may have to be more aware of the rules imposed by officials, parents, bureaucracy and anyone to whom you have responsibilities. The overall idea is to project an appropriate image and be consistent and responsible as you go forwards.
SOWING SEEDS FOR THE FUTURE
Saturn has returned to her previous position in the sign before yours. This position of Saturn marks a time of preparation for when it enters your sign again in September, there to stay until 2017. This is the time to tie up the loose ends from the past, face up to behaviours or previous set-ups which are counterproductive and move on. You may doing more inner work or chuntering busily away behind the scenes on something. You may be called upon to support or provide a service to others more often, who in some cases, will not grasp just how much you are doing on their behalf or perhaps not realize how much you are dealing with on a personal level. Sagittarians born 19th-22nd Dec with from 27 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period
A LEARNING CURVE
Until the 11th, Jupiter will be working happily out of his own house in your solar chart – the ninth. Good news for you Sagittarians as you have had the opportunity to push the envelope of life and discover new mental or physical areas. Growth can also come through travel, foreign connections, wider communications through the spoken or written word, another language or academia. Also education – at times viewed as the teacher, the advisor, or guide is more likely. This is 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 phase and the boundaries of your known world will stretch into new fields of endeavour.
From the 11th Jupiter is in your area of career and overall life direction for about a year. This means more doors swinging open, but not all will be leading to your highest good or worldly success, and you could be puzzling over which is the best way to go. It’s more likely you could gain more recognition and be learning new things professionally. By the end of the transit you should feel more established in your field or the die is cast regarding your general direction and that will be the time when you can identify more clearly what you do for a living or your worldly responsibilities. Early Sagittarians or Sagittarius rising born from 19th December or with from 27 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 29th Nov-2nd Dec or with 7-10 degrees rising will feel the energy the most this month.

Diana's 2015 Sagittarius Forecast:
MERCURY RETROGRADES 3 times for approx 3 weeks each in 2015:
First retrograde on Jan 21st – February 11th – Aquarius 17-1 degrees
Second retrograde on 18th May – 11th June – Gemini 13-4 degrees
Third retrograde on 17th Sept – 9th October – Libra 15-0 degrees
THERE WILL BE 2 SOLAR ECLIPSES IN 2015:
The first Solar eclipse of the year occurs on March 20th in your 4th/5th house.
This eclipse covering the next 6 months, could trigger the Mercury/Neptune vibe in early Pisces. Just make sure you don’t get the wrong end of the stick because thinking or a communication was unclear or you confuse someone with your own lack of clarity. Deliberately make sure you check and get confirmation on whatever is important to you either in a personal sense regarding feelings or in a professional one.
This is the time to begin making positive changes regarding the domestic set-up, family or neighbourhood relationships. Also regarding children or leisure, creative and speculative projects
The second Solar eclipse of the year occurs on Sept 13th in your 10th house
The moment to begin shifting gears in the professional arena or with worldly responsibilities in general
Venus is in a long transit between June 6th-Oct 9th
The potential abundance of Venus will be warming up connections through travel, educational or intellectual pursuits. A close relationship could be with someone at a distance and travelling or visiting faraway places could be a beautiful, rewarding experience. Legal matters could go well during this Venus transit too. You will be more attracted to exotic or alien environments or a faraway culture over this time. You may have a close or special relationship with a teacher or student or someone you team up with who has specialist knowledge which is of value to you.
Jupiter remains in a highly beneficial angle to your sun sign Sagittarius until August 11th
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.
Saggies born from mid-December onwards or with from 23 degrees rising will feel the energy of Jupiter in Leo the most in 2015.
A window of opportunity for fresh enterprises of all kinds exists during the whole of this transit but particularly between June 25th-July 7th. Saggies born from mid-month onwards or with from 23 degrees rising are going to feel this energy the most.
Jupiter moves into Virgo on August 11th
This is your area of career and overall life direction, meaning more doors swinging open, but not all will be leading down the road you should travel and you could be puzzling over which is the best way to go. It’s more likely you, or what you stand for, could become recognized over a wider stage during this phase, so it would be wise to choose an area you prefer and one which is realistically manageable . You will be learning new things professionally and you should feel more established or settled about where you are heading in life as this is a time when you can identify more with what you do for a living. However, there is a danger you become over-confident and bite off more than you can chew. If you avoid this pitfall and are not egotistical about your capabilities which is not the same as genuinely caring about skill, reputation and doing a good job, then you can be very successful. Travel, foreign connections, higher education could be a part of the picture. This is a time to think bigger about what you do for a living or get a broader perspective on your overall direction in life and, during this period, you may expand into amazing new areas.
Be aware of the good vibrations in this area particularly from June 25th-July 7th when Venus teams up with Jupiter. Saggies born from mid-December onwards will feel Jupiter in Leo the most over the year.
Saturn entered your sign on Xmas Eve for a 2 and a half year transit. This happens approx every 29 years. In this Saturn cycle circumstances will help you learn how to take yourself and your needs more seriously and concentrate your focus consistently into those areas which ultimately lead to a happier, healthier, more solvent or settled version of yourself. During this transit, new conditions will slowly create structures inwardly and outwardly which form the armature of that better, more comfortable life. Along the way, tensions and challenges will alter your perceptions. Saturn answers the vibrational call of your unconscious for experiences which will force you to grow and learn and build a new reality and so material conditions will challenge you to reach consistently into areas which demand effort and discipline. If you are in touch with your deeper desires, then the Saturn influence will parent new growth though your steady endeavours. If you are not, then Saturn will attract unwanted burdens because you have not yet realized your true needs and your ‘signal’ brings more of what you do not want. Saggies born until the middle or the first week or with up to 12 degrees rising will feel this energy the most.
Saturn leaves your sign and returns briefly to its previous position June 14th-Sept 17th, to do with finishing off a chapter of life rooted in the past.
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 closet. 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. Saggie’s born from 17th December onwards or from 27 degrees Saggie rising will feel this vibration the most in 2015.
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 4th-14th December or with 11-21 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 27th November-4th December or with 4-11 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 4th-9th December or between 11-16 degrees rising will feel this energy the most in 2015.
