Diana's Monthly Scorpio Forecast for August 2016
Until 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.
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..
FRIENDS IN HIGH PLACES
Until the 6th Venus is helping to create more favourable circumstances with authority figures, like bosses, parents who will be positively emphasized as they tend to see you or your work in a friendly light. There could be an ally – possibly a female – or just someone you feel close to no matter whether they are socially above you or not, who is invaluable to your success or who facilitates an ambition. You yourself could be the one who takes a firm but friendly stand and enables another to achieve their goals.
A CHERISHED HOPE WITHIN REACH
From the 6th Venus warms group relationships and other associations. You will tend to feel supported by others who are singing from the same page or have common interests, as you move forwards with something you have hoped for, maybe for a long time. Networking, group gatherings or team efforts benefit from Venus’s sociable, helpful mood. Anything related to technology or activity online may be interesting, materially beneficial and, in general facilitate positive experiences. As Venus also rules money and property, you may benefit materially through groups, friends or special associations.
MOBILIZING ASSETS & TALENTS
From the 3rd 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.
From 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.
THE RESISTANCE OF THE INANIMATE OBJECT
Saturn is launching you into a 2 year cycle of more concentrated work related to the material/physical side of life. You can be successful but disciplined effort will be needed to manage the piggy bank and to improve quality of life or resources, whether that’s cash or vegetables. Gradually this side of things takes the shape you desire, but routine perseverance is the key as there will tend to be obstacles. Be kind to yourself, encourage yourself and don’t take your eye off the ball. Make what you have work better for you and you will build, sometimes through challenging conditions, a more comfortable reality which puts a smile on your face. Scorpios born 31st Oct-3rd November or with 9-11 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
(The current Saturn/Neptune transit brings uncertainty and indecision into this area, so harder work is needed to clarify things, get organized and go forward in a confident, focused manner. During the long transit of Neptune through your 5th house there is a tendency to be unrealistic or too rose-tinted specs about partners, children or speculative projects. You feel like taking a gamble when you are not completely clear about what’s involved or what the outcome might be. On the other hand, Neptune is in such a brilliant angle to your natal Sun you might just get away with it as your personal charisma and creativity is at a high and could even get you some recognition. Your imagination can be shaped by the current proximity of Saturn to Neptune (by degree) and if you proceed in a methodical, structured manner you can be successful with projects and popular at the same time. If you are at the stage of getting all your ducks in a row with something exciting – be persevering and don’t give up!
STRENGTH IN NUMBERS
Until next September, Jupiter is in a fortunate angle to your Sun sign. 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.
Scorpio and Scorpio rising from 12th-20th Nov or with 21-29 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this month.

What today looks like:
Continuing today, and ending on the 5th, the Sun is tussling with the planet Saturn. Your area of groups, friends, and social circles is supplied with an agenda which is practical, and detail-oriented by our Sun in Virgo. While this awkward connection continues, it may be awkward to place a lot of value in your social circle, or to buy something you've wanted for a long time.
Elsewhere: starting today, and concluding on Wednesday, the Moon is moving through Leo. For you, Scorpios, this means three days where society, government, and career are comforting, and nurturing for you. The Moon, when in the sign of Leo, provides a prideful, creative feeling.
Also today: continuing today, and concluding on Sunday, our Moon is clashing with Uranus. Our Moon present in the sign of Cancer may mean your area of foreign countries, higher learning, ethics and law is provided with a comforting, sensitive desire. It might be frustrating to do something unfamiliar at work, or be adventurous at your job, while this trying, difficult connection continues.
Also On This Day:
- Neptune starts an opposition with our Sun today, which ends on the 6th.
- Mars continues transiting Sagittarius until the 26th of September.
- The Moon carries on transiting Cancer until Sunday.
