Diana's Monthly Scorpio Forecast for February 2016
Until the 19th your attention could centre around a base of operations, community or family matters or extended family. Property matters – buying/selling/home improvements may features, or it may be about the past in the present or sharing. 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!
Until the 14th Mercury is in a very outgoing, chatty area of your Solar chart but it’s also to do with communications equipment, 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.
From the 14th 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 or 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, around or about a base of operations – wherever that is – or you may be on the move more.
Until the 17th Venus is 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.
From the 17th 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 family or tribal connections, or maybe you like where you are located. You may feel the urge to beautify your surroundings or make more of your space inside or outside.
READY TO ROLL
Mars in your sign, which means the need for you to be decisive and to take action has been increasing. It also brings more hustle and bustle around you. More stamina may be needed but vitality tends to improve and, whether you like it or not, the goals and objectives are more obvious. Definitely the time to get the ball rolling on things – or just keep up! As Mars is about initiating things, whether you choose it or not, this is a time to be more dynamic and physically active and get on with what needs doing either out of choice or necessity. Some of you will get plunged into situations which demand assertiveness, leadership or just get you working harder.
Even though Mars tends to boost vitality, be aware that Mars can run you ragged and use up your time or sap your energy, if you do not harness it, so take the trouble to engineer enough down time for yourself and recharge those batteries. The advice is to be smart and customize things to suit you better and pace yourself so you will have the reserves you need to tackle life, balancing your efforts with enough R&R. Overall, this is your opportunity to get with whatever program you need to improve things for yourself personally. Mars does not like hanging around and so you should not procrastinate once you have thought something through, but impatience and overstretching your energies are Mars’ weaker side so just watch your step as you go forward and you can be successful.
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 be more involved with those out to have a good time whether as a participant or a facilitator. 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 is launching you into a 2 year cycle of more concentrated work related to the material/physical side of life. You can be successful but disciplined effort will be needed to manage the piggy bank and to improve quality of life or resources, 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 better for you. Scorpios born 4th-8th November or with 13-17 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period
STRENGTH IN NUMBERS
Until next September, Jupiter is in a fortunate angle to your Sun sign. Jupiter will help you grow and learn through new associations and friendships, or within a collective of others who have interests or a situation in common. New friends, colleagues or those with a shared aim or interest will show you a new angle or expand your world over this phase. Equally you could be viewed as the enabler or guide connected to a key group of others.
Scorpio and Scorpio rising from 18-23 degrees or those born 9th-14th November will feel this energy the most this forecast period.

What today looks like:
Beginning today, and finishing on Saturday, the Moon is tussling with Mercury. The Moon sitting in Aries might mean an alert, enthusiastic desire in your area of health, routine tasks, and jobs. While this trying, difficult connection continues, it may be awkward to have a technical discussion, or to chat about a short trip.
Also today: starting today, and concluding on Monday, the Moon is moving through Taurus. For you, Scorpios, this means three days where personal relationships, and partners are fostered, and more familiar in your life. Our Moon, when in Taurus, provides a need which is reliable, and resistant.
As well: continuing today, and ending on Sunday, the Sun is clashing with Mars. Your area of family, home-life, and instincts is provided with an individualistic, eccentric motivation by the Sun in Aquarius. It might be frustrating to start something in your family, or nurture something new, while this tough, awkward clash continues.
Also On This Day:
- Neptune starts a sextile aspect with the Moon today, which continues until Saturday.
- The planet Mercury continues transiting the sign of Capricorn until Saturday.
- Our Sun carries on transiting the sign of Aquarius until the 18th.

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.
