Diana's Monthly Scorpio Forecast for May 2015
Until the 21st you’ll benefit more from the support or contribution of another in close relationship. It’s not a time to be going it alone, so central to this period, will be how to get the best out of partnerships and other close associations. You and another could be teaming up or doing business together. But however it is for you, there is a stronger feeling of mutual interaction – or attraction!
Discussions, ideas and research tend to be strategic and could be revealing as you drill down to fundamentals. Communications could become more involved, intense, or confidential. Your thinking could focus on sensitive issues like the financial aspects in a relationship or revolve around property or possessions belonging to or shared with another. There may be more paperwork or some rethinking related to an agreement or contract. At this time, some of you may be giving confidential advice and perhaps ‘sensing’ more than thinking as your gut knowing will be stronger.
It may be that you feel quite passionate about something or someone and feelings go deep. Or, on the flip side, it’s probably easier for someone to push your buttons. Just trust your deeper instincts, stay away from ego, and try to avoid knee-jerk reactions. Get to the basics within the current conditions.
Mercury goes retrograde for 3 weeks from the 19th. This is the time to get sorted out with joint resources, shared space or deeper issues between you and another.
Until the 8th Venus is in a place of emotional depth and something can touch you deeply, but you can move others too. In general, it can mean things may become more intimate or ’involved’.
Great for the romantics and artists among you.
Venus here could also manifest as a relationship helping you out materially or supporting you emotionally in major or minor ways. So, a good time to acquire and use resources to benefit your joint material interests with others. Negotiations could go in your favour and there could be deeper, more rewarding bonds with another. Some of you may feel like shifting into more commitment in a material or emotional sense – depending on your natal chart and on your own ability to create what you want. Also, a relationship could revolve around a shared space, possessions or property but things can be ironed out to mutual advantage.
Throughout April and until the 12th of May Mars in your opposite sign means personal or professional exchanges are likely to be more dynamic and lively. Because of the agenda of another, there are more physical demands put upon you to be decisive or take action. Or…you and someone could elicit strong opinions in each-other, conversely, maybe you feel a strong pull towards someone or they feel a strong pull towards you. Once again patience may be needed as Mars here can make you too hasty, handle someone badly, throw caution to the winds, or make a false start. So the advice would be to try to keep things on an even keel and don’t dive in head first at full revs with all guns blazing before you are sure of your ground.
From the 12th Mars is in the sector of your solar chart which clears the decks for new beginnings. So one manifestation may be a letting go or clearing out. Whether it’s a re-think, a detox or a Spring Clean, this Mars position means coming up against pre-existing conditions, behaviours or requirements which provoke an inner shift and then an outer change. You could be intensely aware of the feeling or needs of others at times and you may have to bite your tongue or be more confidential or shrewd.
Debts due or owed (moral or otherwise) may need a more decisive approach or maybe someone is being more assertive – even coercive – towards you. You’ll probably have to feel your way rather than ´think´ your way, and even though you are aware of others’ feelings or set of values, you want to stick up for yourself , and be true to your own values and inner nature. You are looking for a win/win solution but listening with your inner ear.
You’ll tend not to want to put all your cards on the table with some people.
BREATH OF FRESH AIR
From the 8th Venus supports relationships with those far away, or from a different background. Travel with a partner is possible. You are more likely to connect with knowledge or expertise which balances your perspective and helps you get the bigger picture. You yourself may be valued or admired for your knowledge, know-how or guidance and this may be a good time for putting the word out on to a wider stage about something. Publications or education could be emphasized. You and someone may be on a bit of a learning curve together. A teacher or someone with expert knowledge could be helpful, possibly expensive, or, through their contribution you ultimately get a better deal.
From the 21st is a gear-shifting phase, but you‘ll probably be feeling your way forwards as you intuitively sound things out. You may have to be more conscious of another’s side of things. You may also be weighing up what another’s side of things is in a financial, legal or moral sense. You could be musing over some deeper questions, but answers will come more through intuition than the intellect. Transition will occur when, through mutual action with, or challenge from another, your value structure (and instinct) tells you what is the right thing to do.
THE RESISTANCE OF THE INANIMATE OBJECT
Saturn moved out of your sign on the 24th December 2014 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 24th-27th October or with 0-4 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 4th-9th November or with 12-17 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.

What today looks like:
Beginning today, and finishing on Wednesday, the Moon is partnering with Jupiter, as your finance sector is coordinating with your life path area. Your area of profession, society, and life-path is being supplied with a self-oriented, expressive expansion by Jupiter in Leo. While this easy, natural connection continues, it may be beneficial to improve your career, or go for a raise.
Elsewhere: continuing today, and concluding on the 5th of June, the planet Mercury is clashing with the planet Neptune. Mercury sitting in Gemini might mean an intellectual, chatty consideration in your area of secrecy, shared resources, and sexuality. It might be awkward to have a good time in bed, or enjoy a secret, while this awkward clash continues.
Also On This Day:
- A trine aspect between Pluto and the Sun carries on today, and continues until Saturday.
- Uranus starts a trine aspect with the Moon today, which continues until Wednesday.
- The Sun carries on transiting Taurus until the 20th.
- Mercury continues transiting Gemini until the 8th of July.

Diana's 2015 Scorpio Forecast:
MERCURY RETROGRADES 3 times for approx 3 weeks each in 2015:
First retrograde on Jan 21st – February 11th – Aquarius 17-1 degrees
Second retrograde on 18th May – 11th June – Gemini 13-4 degrees
Third retrograde on 17th Sept – 9th October – Libra 15-0 degrees
THERE WILL BE 2 SOLAR ECLIPSES IN 2015:
The first Solar eclipse of the year occurs on March 20th in your 5th/6th house.
This eclipse covering the next 6 months, could trigger the Mercury/Neptune vibe in early Pisces. Just make sure you don’t get the wrong end of the stick because thinking or a communication was unclear or you confuse someone with your own lack of clarity. Deliberately make sure you check and get confirmation on whatever is important to you either in a personal sense regarding feelings or in a professional one.
This is the time to begin improvements related to creative or speculative projects, work, daily duties, health and close relationships especially with children or pets.
The second Solar eclipse of the year occurs on Sept 13th in your 11th house
The moment to begin shifting into new things through group involvement and friendships.
Venus will be in a long transit from mid-year…
Venus will be in Leo from June 6th-Oct 9th bringing supportive connections for you Scorpio as the potential abundance of Venus will be gracing your area of career and general life direction making it easier to connect with bosses, officials, parents, teachers and others in positions to assist you on the long and winding road through business or bureaucracy or help you climb the ladder of success.
Jupiter is at the top of your solar chart until August 11th
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 2015, after August will be more favourable.
Be aware of the good vibrations in this area particularly from June 25th-July 7th when Venus teams up with Jupiter. Scorpios born from mid-November onwards will feel Jupiter in Leo the most over the year.
Jupiter moves into Virgo on August 11th Things which have been on the back-burner for a long time can now start rolling forwards. Expansion will be via new associations and friendships, or within a collective with a common interest or outlook. This is the area through which you can learn and grow. An innovative and maybe unconventional approach will expand your world over this phase.
Your work schedule or personal social agenda could be bulging at the seams at certain points but you‘ll have to be careful not to overestimate or underestimate other’s intentions.
This is a very progressive area so the internet may be involved or something techno or at the leading edge in another way. Prepare to be amazed and inspired by innovative ideas or new equipment and inventions.
New associations and teaming up with others could be pivotal to your being able to move towards a long cherished goal. This energy could draw a teacher towards you, someone to guide or advise or someone you can consult for their expertise or refreshing take on things. Equally, it may be yourself who helps others move forward with new knowledge or experience. Scorpios born up to mid-November or with 0-23 degrees rising will feel this energy the most.
Saturn left your sign and began a new cycle on Xmas Eve Now, there will be more challenges related to the material side of life. Obstacles will arise, delays will happen, disciplined effort will be needed to manage the piggy bank, property, possessions and to improve quality lines of supply whether that’s property, cash or vegetables. Gradually, over this long period you can get things under control and life finally becomes more comfortable. But consistency, patience and true grit will be key. So keep taking those small steps towards better conditions now, surmounting the hindrances, which will stand you in good stead further down the line. It’s also a good idea to build upon your assets and that goes for your inborn gifts as well.
Saturn re-enters your sign between June 14th-Sept 17th. 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. Scorpios born from 17th Nov or from 27 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 4th-14th November or with between 11-21 degrees rising will feel this vibration the most in 2015.
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 27th October-4th November or with 4-11 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 4th-9th November or with 11-16 degrees rising will feel this vibration the most over 2015.
