Diana's Monthly Scorpio Forecast for May 2014
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 bonding, teaming up or doing business together. But however it is for you, there is a stronger feeling of mutual interaction – or attraction!
Until the 8th, communications – personal or professional, in close interactions and collaborations are highlighted and you’ll probably be sharing ideas and connecting with someone’s slant on things and even if you disagree, at least it helps you clarify your own thinking. You may be in relationship with someone whose guidance or information is valuable or you yourself may be more looked upon as the information-giver, go-between, or guide.
Until the 3rd the Venus position can mean you express yourself in more spontaneous or creative ways which could be good for business and personal life as your spirited efforts make a good impression on others. There may be close connections with children, young people, pets or partners, and for some, a romantic relationship. Somehow you could feel under the spotlight.
From the 3rd 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. There is likely to be a female or somebody you take to who is there with practical help or advice when needed. This Venus transit could be good news for you health-wise as long as you avoid overindulgence either through head-in-the-sand habits or being wilful or extreme. Socializing or a romantic liaison could happen with someone connected to employment or a service-orientated environment.
THE WORLDS WITHIN
From the 8th, communications tend to become more strategic, involved, or confidential. Your thinking could spring from deeper feelings and be more heart-based. You may be mulling over finances a space, a venue, possessions or property belonging to or shared with another. There may be more discussions related to an agreement or contract and you have to liaise with another before the deal is sealed.
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 be more conscious of another’s welfare, feelings or requirements. 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.
In the current Saturn cycle ‘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 near the beginning of the last decanate or with 17-21 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
SERVING THE COMMON 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 alright 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 onboard 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.
Scorpios born in the first/second decanate or with 8-12 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this month.
A LEARNING CURVE
Until 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, legal issues 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 14-21 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
JUPITER/URANUS/PLUTO early month
You may be feeling restless and looking for ways to be less hemmed in and freer to express yourself in the way you prefer.
Also, what do you have to chuck out in order to improve your life? What ballast do you have to drop in order to expand into fresh territories? What lengths will you have to go to in order to more fully inhabit the version of yourself you have now become?
This may be a time when you are deeply questioning things and being very honest with yourself about what is more worthwhile at this stage of the journey.
(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 an innovative, inspired and realistic approach).

Beginning today, and concluding on Wednesday, the Moon is partnering with Jupiter, as your appearance sector is connecting with your travel sector. Your area of foreign countries, higher learning, ethics and law is being supplied with an expansion which is sensitive, and gentle by Jupiter in Cancer. While this beneficial, easy link continues, it might be good to be adventurous with your appearance, or start researching something.
Elsewhere: continuing today, and finishing on the 5th, the planet Mars is battling with the planet Uranus. Your area of spirituality, subconcious, and mystery is infused with a balanced, compromizing drive by Mars in Libra. While this fluctuating, tricky link continues, it might be a struggle to practice meditation, or to contemplate your job.
Also On This Day:
- A sextile aspect between the planet Pluto and Venus continues today, and ends on the 21st.

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.
