Diana's Monthly Scorpio Forecast for December 2014
Until the 22nd finances, goods, property or anything which affects your material security or physical wellbeing is likely to have your attention. So key themes are centred around ‘stuff’ – yours (or theirs), and perhaps protecting it, moving it, ditching it or acquiring more. Also seeing how to improve things on a practical, physical, material level which may improve wellbeing – yours or another’s.
QUALITY NOT QUANTITY
Until the 11th Venus is in an area concerning money, property, possessions and other basic stuff. Overall, it means you can do okay in financial negotiations as your people skills will tend to improve. Buying/selling/renting/leasing tends to go in your favour and applying for funding or investments made under this transit can prove beneficial as long as you are sensible and don’t take a wild risk. In general, Venus tends to ease things materially and can open the path between money or other goodies and you but, just make sure the traffic isn’t travelling more away from you than towards you – unless this is your choice.
From the 11th Venus will be in a very sociable sector of your solar chart. She can help you to be articulate in your expression 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 who appreciate your self-expression or there may be more interesting daily encounters or more access to the arts. Media is favoured as is anything artistic. 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.
QUALITY NOT QUANTITY
Until the 17th conversations tend to have a more practical slant. Discussions may revolve around material matters, or basic physical needs and you may be looking into how to improve things and get it all working in a satisfactory way. So, considering essential needs and gathering information about whatever would be best for yourself or others on basic levels. Plans may focus upon useful resources or practical ways of achieving this or that result. Buying/selling, renting/leasing may also be on your mind at this time. And stuff! What is of most value to you and how can you use your natural abilities more.
From the 17th Mercury is in a very outgoing, chatty area of your Solar chart but it’s also to do with education, gathering or sharing information, media etc. Increased interchanges through speaking and writing are more likely, and possibly more paper-work. Overall, it tends to be a great time for making connections, learning and sharing new stuff, in person or over the wires.

ENGAGE BRAIN BEFORE MOUTH
Until the 5th Mars is in a transit of your Solar communications sector accelerating mental processes and firing up the way you express yourself. Maybe shooting from the hip with opinions.
Educational pursuits, speaking, writing or socializing can be pretty demanding or even competitive at times and you express ideas and opinions with greater force and dynamism which may take others aback at times. Comings and goings may increase or you find yourself more in the stream of information exchange and this would be a good time to float a new concept or body of work. However, there may be tensions and you can feel overloaded with too much information coming at you or demanded from you. Sometimes, it could feel that certain others are too impatient or over-assertive but, your own reactions may be too defensive. It’s better to be measured and decisive in what you say, keeping lines of communication open rather than wasting energy wondering about someone’s deeper motives.
In general, there may be more correspondence or other types of paperwork than usual and flying hither and thither for business or personal reasons. Overall, you should start to feel more confident about making decisions or defining certain objectives more clearly. You can be proactive and successful with media, promotions, negotiations or simply speaking up for yourself in a more assertive way.
From the 5th Mars is at the root of your chart. This means you could be busier than usual in and around HQ, or because of a property or location. Roof over the head may need physical effort. Decisiveness may be needed because of a living space inside or outside, or be related to a neighbourhood locally or over the wires. Points on the map, a family member, or a neighbourhood, will need a decisive or assertive approach which may also make demands on your stamina and may be the cause of conflict. Mars in this area could mean a lot more coming and going within a locality or hustle and bustle around you. As always with Mars, there could be moments of tension which surface now and again and affect your mood and you may have to use pent up energies in a more positive way. Skeletons may start rattling in the closet and you have to confront emotional reactiveness or elements from the past or with parents or other family members. On the other hand you may be putting your energies into something which connects you with tradition, the family background, Mother Nature or the planet as a whole. For some, parents or parenting are emphasized – especially the male side.
Until the 24th the Saturn cycle in your sign means ‘turns of events’ will gradually help you learn how to take your responsibilities and your life more seriously and concentrate your energies consistently onto specific targets which build new structures for the future. Through adversity, you will steadily build the new routines outside and inside which will form the armature of that better, more comfortable life.
Scorpios born in the last 10 days or with from 26 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
THE RESISTANCE OF THE INANIMATE OBJECT
Saturn moves 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 in the first couple of days or with 0-1 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 in the last decanate or with 20-23 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.

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.
