Diana's Monthly Sagittarius Forecast for February 2016
Until the 19th 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.
Until the 14th 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 14th 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.
THE MATERIAL WORLD
Until the 17th Venus is in an area concerning money, property, possessions and other basic stuff. Overall, it means you can do okay in financial negotiations as your people skills will tend to improve. Buying/selling/renting/leasing tends to go in your favour and applying for funding or investments made under this transit can prove beneficial as long as you are sensible and don’t take a wild risk. In general, Venus tends to ease things materially and can open the path between money or other goodies and you but, just make sure the traffic isn’t travelling more away from you than towards you – unless this is your choice.
From the 17th 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.
THE COMMON GOOD
Mars is in a more inward and private area suggesting things are 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. But somehow there are not enough facts to make a definite decision. Follow your inner light.
This 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.
Until the 19th 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!
Saturn has returned to your sign. Over the next 2 years scenarios and conditions around you will gradually help you learn how best to take your responsibilities to yourself, your talents, your well-being your hopes and dreams more seriously and concentrate your energies more purposefully onto specific targets which build new structures for the future.
Sometimes through adversity, you will steadily build the new routines outside and inside which will form the armature of that better, more comfortable life. Sagittarians born December or with 13-17 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period
Jupiter is in your area of career and overall life direction until next September. 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 with what you do for a living or your worldly responsibilities. Early Sagittarians or Sagittarius rising born 4th-8th December or with from 18-23 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
During this long transit of Neptune through your home area you may have to sacrifice your own style or your preferred plan regarding a space or property or neighbourhood in order to serve a common good. And, as long as you protect your privacy and have integrated your own wishes, regarding family members, community or tribe, all will be well.
Saggies born 29th Nov-1st Dec or with 7-10 degrees rising will feel the energy the most this month.

What today looks like:
Continuing today, and finishing on Sunday, the Sun is tussling with Mars. The Sun sitting in the sign of Aquarius may mean your area of brief trips, discussion, and thinking is filled with a quirky, free-spirited power. While this trying, difficult connection continues, it may be awkward to meditate, or to have a spiritual discussion.
Elsewhere: beginning today, and concluding on Saturday, the Moon is moving through the sign of Aries. For you, Sagittarians, this means a few days where creativity, leisure, and playfullness are comforting, and nurturing for you. The Moon, when in Aries, provides a feeling which is pioneering, and energetic.
As well: continuing today, and concluding on Thursday, our Moon is connecting with the planet Mercury. Our Moon sitting in Pisces may mean your area of instinctual behaviour, home, and family-life is supplied with a feeling which is intuitive, and perceptive. It might be opportune to buy something for your family, or try to make improvements at home, while this oppertunistic collaboration continues.
Also On This Day:
- Venus continues transiting the sign of Capricorn until the 16th.
- Our Sun carries on transiting Aquarius until the 18th.
- The Moon continues transiting Pisces until Wednesday.

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.
