Diana's Monthly Sagittarius Forecast for May 2014
Until the 21st it’s time to make yourself useful. You may be dealing with more chores or niggly details, or, this may be the moment to get to grips with health issues (yours or another’s) or a better diet and exercise regime. You may also be putting more effort into maintenance, repairs, or applying skills. So, dealing with the ‘to do’ list and getting things organized better seems advisable.
Until the 8th, Mercury is focusing your mind upon daily schedules, the to-do list, and discussions, ideas or paperwork have a more practical slant. Thoughts could revolve around daily duties, repairs, maintenance, or health – yours or another’s. Thinking about the mechanical details of daily life will definitely be a keynote. Also you could be learning useful new skills or applying those you already have either out of choice or necessity. Around mid-month there could be a change which makes you aware of what’s missing or what is unnecessary.
Until the 3rd, 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.
From the 8th, communications – personal or professional, in close interactions and collaborations are highlighted and you’ll probably be bouncing ideas around with someone. You may be intrigued or less than impressed at someone’s slant on things but even if you disagree, at least it helps you clarify your own thinking. You may be in relationship with someone whose guidance or information is valuable or you yourself may be more looked upon as the information-giver, go-between, or guide at this time.
From the 3rd, the new Venus position can mean you express yourself in more spontaneous or creative ways. There may be happier connections with children, young people, pets or partners, and for some, a romantic relationship. In general, this energy links you more to anything you personally find empowering or satisfying. And, most importantly, puts you in touch with your own playful inner child. Social get-togethers may revolve around speculative interests, leisure, performance or art.
A PROBLEM SHARED IS A PROBLEM HALVED
From the 21st it’s not a time to be going it alone and you’ll benefit more from close liaisons. So central to this period, will be how to get the best out of partnerships and other close associations. You and someone could be bonding, negotiating or supporting eachother. But, however it is for you, there is more of a feeling of mutual interaction – or attraction!
Late month, communications tend to become more involved or confidential. Your thinking is more intuitive and could take you deeper within yourself.
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 near the beginning of the last decanate or with 17-21 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
Until July, Mars is in a very sociable and progressive area of your Solar chart. Very technology orientated so things like the internet and the paraphernalia that goes with it could be emphasized. You will tend to be the initiator with projects or part a group with interests or aims in common. Mars can be a bit pushy, so, on the flip side, there may be tensions between you and a friend or associate. Due to certain others, life becomes more demanding or annoying and you may have to be on the ball, competitive and decisive. Just avoid being hasty and don’t allow others to tire you out or push you into something you don’t want. This is a more future-orientated phase when things which have been shelved, sometimes for a long time, can start to move forwards again. So, in general, a phase to get the ball rolling – expecting the unexpected, unusual or inspirational along the way. Saggies born in the first/second decanate or with 8-12 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this month.
MORE TO PLAY WITH
Until next July, Jupiter will be putting a beneficial emphasis onto your joint financial area. Materially, your life could grow and expand through the contribution of key associations or a partnership. So this can mean more money, possessions or improved physical conditions made available to you, or that you find it easier to access them through a key relationship. It may be a different financial strategy or set-up becomes a useful resource and it may be some kind of moral debt settled or financial debt is repaid.
Sagittarians born near the beginning of the second decanate or with 14-21 degrees Saggie rising will feel this energy the most this month.
JUPITER/URANUS/PLUTO early month
You may be feeling restless and looking for ways to be less hemmed in and freer to express yourself in the way you prefer.
Also, what do you have to chuck out in order to improve your life? What ballast do you have to drop in order to expand into fresh territories? What lengths will you have to go to in order to more fully inhabit the version of yourself you have now become?
This may be a time when you are deeply questioning things and being very honest with yourself about what is more worthwhile at this stage of the journey.
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 6-8 Pisces rising will feel the energy the most this month.
(The new vibration emanating from the position of Saturn/Neptune/Jupiter helps you to take stock, tie up loose ends from the past as you gradually complete and heal from the previous long cycle. In less than 2 years, you will be building a new foundation from the roots up. You could benefit from someone sharing resources with you).

The planet Mercury sitting in the sign of Aries may mean a consideration which is alert, and enthusiastic in your area of pleasure, leisure, gaming, and creative self expression.

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.
