Diana's Monthly Sagittarius Forecast for October 2016
Until the 23rd the Solar energy makes it a forward-moving phase when friendships, associations 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 to realize an idea or ideal which has been on the backburner for a long time. Networking, group connections and technology may also be emphasized. You could be making some new friends…
THE LONG VIEW
Until the 7th correspondence and targets may involve bureaucracy, parental figures or the ‘powers that be’. Or it may mean more ‘official’ type paper-work or correspondence. Career, a new enterprise, or those who may facilitate your aims could be highlighted. You may also find your goals and schemes are being validated or rejected by the by the way things are unfolding across the wider stage. 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.
(Mercury and Jupiter at the beginning of the second week means it is easier to get the bigger picture or be more upbeat in your thinking).
(Sun over Pluto at the end of the second week could indicate intensity or a clash of wills/a letting go necessary before moving forward).
From the 7th this will be a period in which to discuss, consider, and generally chew the fat in the company of others. You also may be networking or spending more time online. Others could find you articulate and your ideas interesting and you feel in an experimental mood as you explore different ideas or avenues of expression. You could be surprised by another’s style or unusual take on things. Equally others could see you as unconventional or inspiring.
(MID MONTH there could be some surprises with Sun on the degree of Uranus).
FEED THE SOUL, HEAL THE BODY
Until the 18th there may be less opportunity to share your feelings in an open way. Or you just will not be in the mood to do so. You’ll tend to keep things to yourself and may be feeling uncertain about where you stand in a relationship, regarding finances or a property. You could be mulling over the past and finding emotions getting in the way of rational thinking. Others can be oblivious to what’s going on for you as you take a step back, touch base, and with Venus’s knack of finding the balance, you have the chance gently iron out any inner turbulence or physical imbalance. This long transit means you are likely to feel more supported by others within a closed circle or other special environment. It is likely you can benefit materially through others in these types of shared environments. A good idea would be to immerse yourself in nurturing pursuits which feed your soul whenever you can.
GOOD IN YOUR SKIN
From the 18th Venus is in your sign, supporting a more gregarious, sociable mood and could boost your love-life and other close relationships. Meeting the world with more ease and enthusiasm after the previous phase which was less certain and more introspective. Reaching out to connect with others and some of you could be discovering a significant other.
Professional relationships get a boost with more opportunities to mix and mingle successfully or connect with those important to you. With Venus here you will tend to come across as more welcoming and attractive – good news business as well as your personal life. On the other hand, you could be feeling somewhat self-indulgent and inclined to treat yourself to activities, or purchases which boost morale or are a valuable asset. It’s not all easy-peasy with Venus, which also rules money and other material resources like possessions and property, and you’ll need to work to balance things, so just make sure that the flow of abundance is not flowing more from you than to you – unless that is your choice. Overall this is a good time to work the energy to your advantage and reap the potential benefits.
(In the last 3 days Venus on Saturn means more restraint or a more formal feeling in how you are relating).
MOBILIZING ASSETS & TALENTS
Mars is demanding you put more effort and decisiveness into getting organized in a physical 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 or impulsive at times which could translate into being pushed into unwise or hasty actions. 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. You could be more actively engaged in diet or health matters – your own or someone else’s.
(In the 3rd week Mars on Pluto could lead to extremism or over the top expectations from or to you. However, difficult things can be achieved and ambitions can be successful as long as you are aware of another’s interests as well as your own).
Saturn has returned to your sign after a gap of about 29-30yrs. Until late 2017, 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 to concentrate your energies more purposefully onto specific targets which gradually 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 1st-7th December or with 10-16 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
(The current Saturn/Neptune transit brings uncertainty into this area and harder work to clarify things to get organized and go forward in a confident manner. There are deep changes going on within the core of your being. Family may need extra support or something going on in the locality may mean you have to put aside personal preferences and go with the flow. On the one hand you can be idealistic about the home base or family and hold an almost utopian vision of how you would like it to be, but with Saturn in the mix you must wake up to the realities of the situation and be practical with that vision. Figure out the mechanics of how it can be realized in the face of a little confusion or difficulty during the times when Saturn is close by degree to a planet or important point).
STRENGTH IN NUMBERS
Jupiter is in a fortunate angle to your Sun sign, in residence until Oct 2017. Jupiter will help you grow and learn through new associations and friendships, or within a collective of others who have interests or a situation in common. New friends, colleagues or those with a shared aim or interest will show you a new angle or expand your world over this phase. Equally you could be viewed as the enabler or guide connected to a key group of others.
Sagittarians born 25th Nov-3rd Dec or with 3-12 degrees rising will feel the energy the most over this forecast period.
A SACRED SPACE
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-2nd December or with 8-11 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this month.

What today looks like:
Beginning today, and concluding on Sunday, the Moon is tussling with the planet Venus, as your sexuality sector is clashing with your spiritual sector. Your area of alone-time, mystery, and dreaming is being infused with a passionate, possesive sensibility by the planet Venus in the sign of Scorpio. While this awkward clash continues, it may be awkward to think different, or think deeply about a secret.
As well: continuing today, and finishing on Wednesday, the planet Mercury is collaborating with Pluto. Mercury present in Virgo might mean a notion which is careful, and analytical in your area of career, life-path, and society. While this beneficial, positive connection continues, it may be beneficial to cultivate your public appearance, or to improve your career.
Also On This Day:
- A conjunction between Jupiter and our Sun continues today, and ends on the 6th.
- The Moon begins transiting Leo until Tuesday.
- Mars continues transiting the sign of Sagittarius until Monday.
- A square aspect between Uranus and the Moon carries on today, and concludes on Saturday.
