Diana's Monthly Scorpio Forecast for March 2014
Life is more serious these days and you’ll have been thinking more deeply about things but in March you’ll be playing with fresh ideas and anticipating the future with more optimism and there is a more settled feeling at the roots of your life. You may feel the burden of responsibility on your shoulders though and this is a time when you must put personal desires on one side to serve something bigger than yourself. You are on quite a learning curve but opportunities for success could pop up when you least expect them as long as you cast your nets wider and reach into unfamiliar areas. From late month take practical steps to improve efficiency.
New Young Blood
The New Moon on the 1st in Pisces mixes well with Jupiter and Pluto who are at odds with each other this month, so for you Scorpio, despite the general tendency to take things too personally, or hang on too tightly, if you were to shift into a more creative, humorous frame of mind then you’ll probably end up gaining more. But you may have to let go of (or play down) something in order to preserve something else of greater value to you.
Until the 21st, there’s a brighter, less inward, vibration around. So that could manifest as more opportunities to be in environments with scope for play and enjoyment. Or to associate with those out to have a good time. You are more likely to feel the light of appreciation from others and do things which let you shine your own light in powerful ways. More emphasis is given to children, youngsters or romantic partners for some, and for others, there could be more socializing and maybe more contact with arts/entertainments or the leisure industry.
Home Is Where The Heart Is
Until the 18th, discussions could revolve around family matters, extended family, neighbours, or property. Correspondence and speculation may be about a physical space inside/outside, or points on the map. You may be mulling things over, thinking about the past or parenthood. There may be more contact with relatives for some of you and others may be considering a legacy or a tradition of some kind. Whatever is going on, feelings tend to be nearer the surface and certain interchanges may stir things up or touch a nerve. Either way it tends to be a mentally busy or social time in and around the HQ or not too far away and you may be on the move more.
Innovative Thinking Or Wild Speculation?
From the 18th, Mercury is in a more innovative area of your Solar chart and there’s likely to be increased communications either with or about youngsters, lovers or pets. Whatever you are doing, there may be more laughs or distractions along the way. Now you enjoy playing with ideas and speculating, maybe a little wildly, on this or that or the other possibility. Your creative juices are flowing and you are more articulate which may help with beating the drum on something. Trickster energy is stronger and games or pranks may be on your mind, there could be a false alarm or you are the butt of someone else’s joke. Also, you could be more romantically expressive or creatively persuasive at this time.
Mercury lines up with Neptune from the 20th. Everyday thinking could get fuzzy or there are mixed messages and it’s difficult to get clarity on things. Deception may be a factor too so don’t kid yourself into a worried or over-optimistic state. This can also be the result of outside factors which either sedate or confuse. Matters related to children, partners or a project may be unclear. But it’s a great time to think creatively, be articulate and share your ideas.
Keeping It Real And Grounded
From 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.
In the last two days of the month the New Moon in Aries lines up with Uranus/Pluto/Jupiter. You may feel the need to bust out of whatever has been holding you back. Set wheels in motion to improve efficiency with work methods and regarding health – yours or another’s.
Venus completes her mega-transit of Capricorn on March 6th. She will be in a very social sector of your solar chart. She can bring ‘grace, fluency and flow’ to your thinking and speaking 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 which encourage creative self-expression or there may be more interesting distractions or more access to the arts. Media is favoured as is anything artistic. You’ll want to keep things at least courteous or attractive looking and at most, feel more appreciative of the beauty and love there is available to you, and you will feel freer to express this to others. 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 life-changing force of Pluto is transiting this sector for several years, continuing to have a positive but powerful impact on your sign. You could be learning to master a language, anything from html to reading navigation charts to interpreting psychic projections. You should not underestimate the power of the spoken or written word, as, with Pluto here, others will pay attention to and be influenced by what you are communicating. There will evolve a deeper understanding of different systems of thought, more tolerance for differing cultures as your previous beliefs or presumptions get cut down to size. Thinking is deeper, more insightful and choices begin to come from a deeper place as your perceptions and intuitions are evolving. Pluto here will help you get insight into areas which are psychic, secret or mysterious in some way. It could even be another dimension, or a separate reality!
Scorpios born in the beginning of the second decanate or with 12-14 degrees rising will feel this vibration the most this month.
In the current Saturn cycle ‘turns of events’ will help you learn how to take yourself and your needs more seriously and concentrate your energies consistently onto specific targets which ultimately lead to a happier, healthier, more solvent or settled version of yourself. Through adversity, you will steadily build the new structures outside and inside which will form the armature of that better, more comfortable life.
Scorpios born in the beginning of the last decanate or with 21-23 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this month.
From March 6th, 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 the tribe, family members or neighbours or maybe you like where you are located or benefit through a property. You could be getting more access to the beauties of nature, decorating a space or digging a garden. Nostalgia may not be far away and this transit can help heal old wounds from the past, balance family relationships and bring more equilibrium to your emotions. Inwardly you should feel more balanced and aligned spiritually. There could be a new arrival!
Serving The Higher Good
Until July, Mars is in a more inward and private area suggesting things could be busier behind the scenes or in a separate bubble with others. I see this area as a chrysalis or cocoon within which something is developing or growing. This is a dynamic energy and so you may be putting yourself out for something bigger than you are. But that’s all right for this is a karmic house which is about selflessness.
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 with Saturn in your sign you may be feeling somewhat downbeat and talk yourself out of something which could lead you to the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. But you need true grit to ride out the obstacles and get to it.
This Mars 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 on-board 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, 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.
A Broader Canvas
Until next July, Jupiter will be working happily out of his own house in your solar chart – the ninth. During this more serious time in your life, this is very good news for you Scorpio. Your mental territory is due to broaden and experience will mature you. Growth can also come through travel, foreign connections, wider communications through the spoken or written word, another language or academia. Also education, so being seen as the teacher or student or the disseminator of information, the advisor, or guide is more likely. A great vibration for broadcasting on to a grander stage, but also for getting involved in publishing, politics, the law travel or communications media. This is an expansive area and the boundaries of your known world will stretch into new territories.
Scorpios born in the beginning of the second decanate or with 10-12 degrees Scorpio rising will feel this energy the most this month.
(The position of Saturn/ Neptune/Jupiter could stimulate your imagination related to a speculative project or a romantic relationship. Saturn’s realism and limitations should prevent you from building impossible castles in the air in either area. And Jupiter will open your mind to new horizons and fresh adventures. All three together bring a wave of positive energy into your life which underpins a balanced innovative and spontaneous approach).

What today looks like:
Continuing today, and concluding on Friday, our Moon is clashing with the planet Neptune. Our Moon present in Taurus might mean your area of partnerships, close relationships, and contracts is infused with a need which is reliable, and resistant. It may be difficult to play a one-on-one game, or have fun with a significant other, while this tough, awkward clash continues.
Elsewhere: beginning today, and concluding on Sunday, the Moon is moving through Gemini. For you, Scorpio, this means a period of three days where shared resources, sexual relationships, and secrecy are safer, and more nurturing. The Moon, when in Gemini, provides a need which is curious, and communicative.
As well: continuing today, and ending on Friday, Venus is tussling with the planet Mars. Your area of instinctual behaviour, home, and family-life is supplied with an individualistic, idealistic aesthetic by the planet Venus in Aquarius. While this awkward connection continues, it might be difficult to stay home alone, or to look after your spirit.
Also On This Day:
- A sextile aspect between Uranus and our Moon begins today, and ends on Saturday.
- A trine aspect between Saturn and our Sun continues today, and continues until the 21st.
- Venus continues transiting Aquarius until the 5th of April.

Diana's 2014 Scorpio 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 7th house
Take the initiative to improve things in one-to-one relationships. Get things straightened out with an established one, or put yourself in environments where you can meet a potential partner.
The second Solar eclipse of the year occurs on October 23rd in your Solar 1st house
Time for a self-improvement program or to take steps to improve what is of highest priority to yourself personally.
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 the year………
Venus will be in Capricorn from November 5th 2013 – March 6th 2014 bringing supportive connections and more ease, grace and flow in your communications with others. There could be more access to artistic or entertaining activities. Good news for artistic creative expression, romantic connections, warmer relations with siblings and friends. Also, on another level, you could make money through use of communications equipment (including vehicles), get a good deal from negotiation, do well through promotions, the media or networking.
When Venus comes close to Pluto’s degree in late January/early February any of the above will become more pressing or intense.
Mars enters Libra, on December 8th 2013 to stay until July 25th 2014. A long transit dynamically activating your area of higher service. Mars here needs more inner awareness from you as he can stir up annoying feelings which have you blaming others or the weather or the government when really there is something deeper bugging you. This is the house of NON-EGO and so that means getting your ego agenda out of the way. If you were to work as a selfless support for the good of others, for the common cause, for a higher or bigger purpose and let go of personal, self-centred ambitions, you will do better with this long Mars transit.
Health matters – your own or another’s – may be emphasized or you may be doing something which improves wellbeing for yourself or another.
Work alone as often as you can, or if you that’s not possible, engineer a space you can go to or a pursuit you can follow where you can get in tune with your deeper self and your inner drives more easily. Be gentle with yourself and do not beat yourself up, if you do that, you could fall into or escape into inappropriate behaviour.
Inner reflection, psychoanalysis or spiritual pursuits are recommended but also as many self-nurturing activities as you can fit in. Others will be needy and can tire you out so it would be smart if you secure somewhere to recharge your batteries. On another level this position of Mars relates to projects behind the scenes which need physical strength or effort and, in a way, you are preparing, getting ready, for a bigger or more important dynamic activity after Mars has left this house of your solar chart.
You may become aware of subtler energies, and more self understanding. Just avoid shooting yourself in the foot with those same old emotional reactions which have you falling down the hole in the road.
Jupiter entered is in Cancer until July 16, 2014 when it enters Leo.
As the year kicks off Jupiter is working happily out of his own house – the ninth. 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 possibility. 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 unless you waste the 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.
From mid-July Jupiter moves to the top of your solar chart. 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.
All natives of your sign will feel the Jupiter influence over 2014.
From 6th October 2012 Saturn entered your sign 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, more solvent and 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. If you are in touch with your deeper desires, then the Saturn influence will make it clear what you have to let go of and support new growth. 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. Saturn leaves your sign on Xmas Eve 2014. Scorpios born from 7th Nov or from 15 degrees Scorpio rising will feel this vibration most.
Uranus will be transiting your sector of daily work routines and health for several years. Uranus is about change and so the type of work you do will be subject to change in minor or major ways. There is always an experimental feel with Uranus and, in a way you may be trying out this or that or the other thing. You will probably feel restless at some stages, or seek more freedom from the control of others at work. Rather than throw the baby out with the bath-water and chuck it all in, try to use this freedom-loving vibration in creative ways by breaking free of anything boring or repetitive and find more interesting ways to serve others. This is an innovative, alternative vibration which means you could discover new approaches and methodologies which are more stimulating related to work or health – yours or another’s. Another way Uranus here can operate is get you working within groups of people with sometimes, off-beat interests in common..
There may be a connection – minor or major – with aviation, sailing, internet or broadcasting among many other things as Uranus rules air waves.
But as Uranus also rules change, then a previous structure may suddenly be replaced by a new one and you’ll have to learn new skills or adapt rapidly to a fresh environment. Scorpios born from 31st Oct-9th November or with between 8-17 degrees rising will feel this vibration the most in 2014.
Neptune has been making its influence felt in a performance-orientated area since early 2012. Good news for the ‘creatives’ among you. Imaginative projects can blossom under this transit. Sometimes the mists of Neptune distort reality related to romantic partners, children or speculative ventures you may put them on a pedestal or see the relationship through rose-tinted glasses overemphasizing the dream and ignoring the practical reality.
Over the year, early Scorpios or Scorpio rising will feel the pull to speculate on an outside chance, take a gamble or use that personal charisma of yours to attract resources or attention or investment. It’s advisable to steer clear of financial speculation as Neptune works better with fantasy than reality. Anything involving taking a risk or a gamble would not be a good idea. However, with Saturn in your sign, you will probably make more effort than ever to be realistic and keep at least one foot on the ground then you could be successful. However remember that if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck it probably is a duck, which is great if you are looking for a duck.
Another way this works is you make your creative services available to attract interest or funding on behalf of a cause you believe in. Or you could be serving the leisure-time and entertainment of others. You could have more selfless, caring, involvement with children, animals or those who need guidance and watching out for. Your imagination is likely to be working at full stretch and a romance could really take off but beware of the rose-tinted spectacles! Your sense of using your power to provide fun things for others will be stimulated. Scorpios born 26th-31st October or with 3-8 degrees rising will feel this vibration the most.
The life-changing force of Pluto transiting Capricorn for several years, continues to have a positive but powerful impact on your sign. You could be learning to master a language, anything from html to reading navigation charts to interpreting psychic projections. You should not underestimate the power of the spoken or written word, as, with Pluto here, others will pay attention to and be influenced by what you are communicating. There will evolve a deeper understanding of different systems of thought, more tolerance for differing cultures as your previous beliefs or presumptions get cut down to size. Choices should be coming from a deeper place now and your perceptions and intuitions about others is growing and deepening. Pluto here will help you get insight into areas which are secret or mysterious in some way. It could even be another dimension, or a separate reality! Scorpios born 2nd-6th November or with 10-14 degrees rising will feel this vibration the most over 2014.
