Diana's Monthly Scorpio Forecast for February 2015
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, and probably running around more. It’s a time when you have more on your mind and maybe more to get your head around. Education or travel is also highlighted and there may be plans, schedules or itineraries to consider.
From the 19th the focus will probably be more in and around the base of operations like the neighbourhood, community or with family members. Property matters – buying/selling/home improvements may be a feature or it may be about a particular space inside or outside. 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!
The mental focus could revolve around family, extended family, neighbours, or property matters. Correspondence and discussions may be about a physical space inside/outside, or points on the map. You may be mulling things over feeling more emotional or nostalgic. There may be communications with relations or parents 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 touch a nerve. Either way it tends to be a mentally busy or social time in and around a base of operations – wherever that is – or you may be on the move more. Mercury is retrograde until the 11th, after then, glitches will decrease.
Until the 21st 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 NEW SENSE OF SELF
Until the 20th Mars is in a more spontaneous, and for some, romantic area, giving you the trigger to be more in the mood to take a chance on love or to speculate in other ways. Mars tends to be hasty, so it’s best to sleep on something before making major decisions and don’t risk what you can’t afford to lose. There could be occasions when you feel at the centre of attention or more physically in demand. Your creative energy, or competitiveness should come to the fore. Whatever is going on, you could feel more in your power, more in touch with your ‘child within’ but equally, you could be busier because of children or younger ones in your life. Overall this is the time to get active with projects you enjoy and which are rewarding and empowering. Great for the entrepreneurs and ‘creatives’ amongst you, and you may be more in the mood to invest time and resources on an outside chance.
From the 21st Venus is in a more practical mood, favourably highlighting teamwork regarding daily chores, health matters or running repairs. Others will probably be in a co-operative frame of mind assisting with your requirements. You are more likely to have reasonable interaction with health-providers, co-workers and anyone providing assistance and so if there has been an ongoing problem chances are you will find someone to help with recovery or repair and, even if the problem is not resolved, the interaction will tend to be pleasant.
DEVIL IN THE DETAIL
From the 20th Mars is in a sector which emphasizes the practical side of any bright ideas and health-related matters. Considering how to manage, operate or fix – very practical and usually hands on. You may be more involved with skilled people, health providers or bits of kit. So daily duties and methodologies are highlighted and you might have to get your head around the mechanical details. You can get a lot done if you keep up with daily duties, health matters – yours or another’s – and running repairs. Collaborations can be productive and achieve success but a co-worker or helper may try your patience. Still, it may be a small price to pay if you get your act together in the process.
IN THE SPOTLIGHT
From the 19th 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 join with those out to have a good time. 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. You are more likely to feel the light of appreciation from others or be participating in activities you find fun or personally empowering.
THE RESISTANCE OF THE INANIMATE OBJECT
Saturn moved out of your sign on the 24th December for 6 months, marking a new cycle of challenges related to the material/physical side of life. Disciplined effort will be needed to manage the piggy bank and to improve quality of life 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 for you better. Scorpios born 25th-30th October or with 2-6 degree rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
Jupiter will be in your area of career and overall life direction until next August. 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 with what you do for a living.
Scorpios born 6th-12th November or with 14-19 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.

What today looks like:
Beginning today, and ending on Saturday, the Moon is coordinating with the planet Venus. Our Moon sitting in the sign of Gemini might mean a communicative, knowledgable desire in your area of joint-resources, sexuality, and taboo. While this beneficial, positive connection continues, it may be beneficial to have a good time in bed, or to enjoy a secret.
Also today: starting today, and concluding on Monday, our Moon is moving through Cancer. For you, Scorpio, this means a few days where long journeys, foreign cultures, and deep research are comforting, and nurturing for you. The Moon, when in the sign of Cancer, provides a need which is comforting, and sensitive.
Elsewhere: continuing today, and concluding on the 12th of March, the planet Mercury is moving through Aquarius. For you, Scorpios, this means a month where home, family, and mother-figures are in your thoughts, and seem clearer in your mind. Mercury, when in Aquarius, provides an idealistic, quirky consideration.
Also On This Day:
- Mars carries on transiting the sign of Pisces until the 19th.
- The Moon continues transiting the sign of Gemini until Friday.

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.
