Diana's Monthly Taurus Forecast for November 2015
We still have the long-running generational aspect of Uranus/Pluto in challenging aspect to eachother albeit further apart. These two are responsible for mass social change. The status quo is shifting and things we have all taken for granted socially/economically/culturally is changing and those of us alive today are in the eye of that storm. This is an opportunity for those who are ready to awaken from a long sleep-walk, a chance for growth and new frontiers in belief systems, personal values, creativity and how we apply those against the unfamiliar background of a playing field where, at least, the goal-posts have moved or at most, the game has changed altogether . And there are more game-changing revelations to come over the years ahead.
So watch the spaces where Uranus and Pluto are transiting in your natal and sun-sign charts. And, you can even look at the positions of the signs under their rulership (Aquarius/Scorpio) to get a sense of which parts of your life may be most implicated.
This transit was hanging in the air much earlier this year. (Ebola outbreak, refugees, plucked out of seas and others had their way barred at Calais). Now it is rooting into the mass consciousness more robustly and will be triggering events, reactions and decisions made in response, over the coming 2 months or so. Also, at times in 2016.
Saturn is the planet of the status quo, physical boundaries and structures and Neptune is the planet of ideologies, victimization, escapism and of trying to do what is best for the common good even if it means hardship. But these notions are far too ambiguous for Saturn’s practical material nature. Saturn asks the ‘how’ and prefers to deal with the facts, the nuts and bolts. Saturn is also authority figures, and cares about appearances and keeping to historical standards. But Saturn is also a responsible Mother and wants to protect and provide for others.
These 2 planets are at such an angle that it creates friction, which creates heat which seeks an immediate outlet. They not only trigger events, but they demand dynamic effort to balance the conflict between them and to find a productive release to that tension.
Saturn is in Sagittarius at the moment. Sagittarius rules foreign lands, long journeys, unfamiliar territory and the Higher Law.
It seems to me that Saturn in Sagittarius and Neptune at home in Pisces brings a new kind of confusion, uncertainty about HOW to help the needy, HOW to resolve a tricky situation, without having the wool pulled over the eyes by the greedy. And how to execute the compassionate service required in an orderly, practical, structured fashion. So, our task is to balance our higher vision and emotional intelligence with realistic possibilities. This influence is underpinning events world-wide but also in our individual charts, so look at where Saturn and Neptune are transiting in your natal and sun-sign charts. I will mention the positions of these two transiting planets in your sun-sign chart below.
You can even look at the house positions of the signs under their rulership (Capricorn, Pisces) to get a sense of which parts of your life may be most implicated.
Also, in the individual chart the higher expressions of Neptune such as selfless service, charitable actions, healing and art, should be blended with concrete, practical solutions implemented in a gradual manner which are realistic and serve the common good.
Until the 23rd 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 give and receive 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 21st Mercury is in your opposite sign. 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.
From the 21st discussions, ideas and research tend to be strategic and could be revealing as you drill down to fundamentals and suss things out. At times, communications could become more involved, intense, or confidential. Your thinking could focus on sensitive issues like the joint financial situation 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.
Until the 9th the Venus position may mean a more sociable or lucrative period when you may feel the warmth or support from friends or other associations. This transit may mean a boost to your love-life, and some of you could be tying the knot with that special person. You are likely to express yourself in freer or more creative ways and there may be happier connections with children, young people, pets or partners. 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. Leisure, performance or speculative activities may be highlighted.
From the 9th, Venus is in a more practical mood, favourably highlighting teamwork regarding daily chores, skilled work, running repairs or health matters – your own or another’s. Others will probably be in a co-operative, more supportive 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. Venus will transit this area until October.
Until the 13th Mars is in a sector which emphasizes the practical side of any bright ideas. Considering how to manage, operate or fix – very practical and usually hands on also related to health and fitness. You may be more involved with skilled people, health providers tools or technology. 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.
From the 13th 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. You and someone could elicit strong opinions in each-other or, 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 23rd when the Sun moves, is a gear-shifting phase, but you‘ll probably be feeling your way forwards as you intuitively sound things out. This the moment for letting go of some ballast whether that means a Spring Clean or general de-clutter. Or it could mean a more radical change in your routines related to money, property or a relationship.
Saturn is now in your 8th house. The 8th house is a gear-change house which usually involves clearing the decks to make space for new life. This may involve property, finances, property or your own bad habits. You’ll become more aware over this time frame of who/what you really value, and in the process, you may have to let go of an aspect of a previous perspective, set-up or contract so that life can become more healthy, happy or fulfilling. Sometimes ditching or modifying a prior arrangement in favour of one which is financially, emotionally or physically more comfortable can happen but it will be gradual and you may still have to live within the parameters of the previous set-up for a while. Or maybe there’s a removal of a certain resource or support system or lifestyle and you feel this as a lack. Either way you will slowly be transitioning into a fresh perspective which is closer to your true priorities.
Taureans born 23rd-28th April or with 3-8 degrees rising, or, will feel this energy the most over this period.
Jupiter, planet of potential abundance and expansion will very positively influence your Sun sign until next September. This is a time when you may be appreciated more for yourself in a playful or romantic sense. At times it will encourage a more spontaneous, even self-indulgent, energy. There may be admiring glances coming your way and you may be in the mood to take a risk or a gamble. You may grow through access to creative activities where you can feel empowered and shine in your own unique way. Children, animals and leisure or entertainment activities will be emphasized.
Taureans born from 5th-12th May or with 15-21 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.

A time of new beginnings, with things on a personal level. Because this eclipse is on the cusp you can initiate new beginnings related to friendships and group affiliations and also spend more time on introspection or nurturing activities and supporting others.
The second Solar eclipse of the year occurs on Sept 13th in your 5th house
A time of change through your relationship with children or romantic partners, and pets. A fresh start through leisure entertainments, creative or performance type activities .
Jupiter is in Leo until August 11th This is your home area expanding your life through family or neighbourhood relationships, property and location. It will also tend to underpin a renewed sense of emotional harmony. Maybe you will move or have access to somewhere different which opens up your horizons. Perhaps the family expands through a new arrival or the home-base is enlarged. Visitors may open you up to fresh experiences of various kinds. There could be more contact with long-distance locations or a different culture and that may be related to family or extended family.
In general, your comfort zone, family or community relationships should improve. Your base of operations may move into new areas, and you could do well with a property exchange. Or you could be connecting with fresh influences near home or at home which are educational. But also family or community could benefit as you share your knowledge and experiences.
Taureans born from mid-month or with from 23 degrees rising will feel the energy of Jupiter in Leo the most this year.
Jupiter transits into Virgo on August 11th and will be there for the rest of the year in a stunningly favourable angle to your sun sign Taurus.
This is a time when you when you may be centre stage or more appreciated by others. Confidence should improve and you can be more creatively self-expressive or competitive. It will encourage a more spontaneous, even self-indulgent, energy and could help bring romance into your life, or create conditions for a more entertaining, or loving environment – or both! You may grow through contact with children or animals or have more access to activities where your inner child can come out to play. Also this is a time when money can be made from speculative ventures or for making use of talents or other resources which tend to be positively enhanced at this time. You may be rubbing shoulders with others who are sporty or competitive, or have more access to a socially playful or performance orientated environment or lifestyle. You should feel confidence growing over these months as you tap into your personal power more.
Taureans born up to mid-May or with up to 24 degrees rising will feel the Jupiter vibration the most in 2015.
Also, Venus will be in an extra long transit June 6th – Oct 9th.
Venus will be conjunct Jupiter 25th-7th July at the root of your chart which augurs well for affairs of the heart, family or neighbourhood connections and property matters.
Saturn departs Scorpio from Xmas Eve 2014-June 15th. For you Taurus, Saturn is now in your Solar 8th house. This is a gear-change zone which usually means decks being cleared emotionally and/or materially in one area to make space for new green shoots in another area. This may involve property, finances, relationships or bad habits. You may feel a lack as a support system or relationship is either changed or no longer there. You’ll become more aware over this time frame of who/what you can really trust and what the bottom line is. In the process, you may have to let go of a previous set-up, contract or expectation so that you can get more fulfilment from life. Ditching or modifying a prior arrangement in favour of one which is financially or emotionally more comfortable can happen but it will be gradual and you may still have to live within the parameters of the previous conditions for a while. Or maybe there’s a removal of a certain resource or support system or lifestyle and you are rigidly fearful because you see this as a loss, which it may be – in the short-term. But this is the house of new beginnings, of re-working your mission statement, streamlining or physically re-cycling the old material into something completely different. Either way, you will slowly be transitioning into a fresh perspective. At times, there may be more turmoil going on inside of you than others realize or appreciate. Maybe you have been realizing that chronic bad habits are difficult to break or a commitment is proving more challenging than you signed up for. One way or another, over this long transit your value structure will be challenged and re-shaped as a result.
Taureans born up to the middle of the first week in May or with up to 12 degrees Taurus rising will feel the energy the most over 2015.
From June 15th Saturn resumes its transit of your opposite sign Scorpio.
You are completing a process which began around 14 years ago when you were redefining yourself and your world. Now, that sense of self is being tested and it will be a time of weighing in the balance which alliances are worth the greater effort now demanded from you.
So, this is a cycle of having to work harder at balancing your needs and requirements with those of others. Of understanding others in a new way and, along the road, you may sometimes feel frustrated and limited by what you see as their unreasonable behaviour or narrow-mindedness. Compromise, collaboration or cultivating others will have to be done gradually and will probably be harder work. Hidden stresses in the fabric of a relationship are more likely to be exposed and in some cases you won’t be inclined to paper over the cracks anymore and decide to move on. You may also feel a lack of anyone special in your life or feel lonely within a current partnership or close relationship. The underlying message here is to restructure close relationships and work along new lines, but first there is the invitation to confront your own flaws and weaknesses and scrutinize the way you habitually handle yourself in close relationships. Are you too controlling or too eager to undersell yourself? What are the expectations between you, the agreements, the underlying moral obligations and ask yourself whether you and the relationship are still going in the same direction. Its Saturn’s job to ‘stress-test’ us wherever she goes in our chart and the fundamental test of this transit is to honour your responsibilities in close personal or professional relationships, but, in the process, understand yourself better.
If you are old enough look back 29/30 years or 14/15 years when the decisions you made then may have a bearing on what is happening now. Taureans born 17th May to the last day of the sign or from 26 degrees rising will feel this vibration the most over 2015.
Uranus/Pluto are closest until mid-April and will manifest important events which trigger yet another series of choices to raise our vibration through knowledge, forgiveness and letting go as the mass consciousness shifts from the Piscean into the Aquarian Age.
For many years, Uranus will be transiting a more sensitive, karmic area of your chart. Helping you to get in touch with deeper patterns and intuitions. Some of you may develop an interest in psychology, inner work, humanitarian or reformist groups. The Uranian style of enlightenment can suddenly flag up something previously hidden which gives you a shock as it reveals something which has eluded you for a long time. Secrets or hidden motivations – your own or another’s, may unexpectedly be exposed. You may also have more involvement with unconventional groups or with institutions which could be connected to health, spirituality or art. An innovative, alternative vibration which means you could discover new perspectives which are not main-stream.
This could be an inspiring time for you artistic children of the Bull and could also stimulate imagination, dreams, psychic or healing experiences. Taureans born 4th-14th May or with from 11-21 degrees rising will feel this vibration the most over 2015.
Neptune’s position shows that friends may need you to be more sensitive and supportive. You feel more of a pull to become involved with groups which serve the community, or champion the under-privileged. You will probably feel more of a sense of duty to a special group or to certain friends or associates and share ideals with kindred spirits. Avoid being woolly minded or too ‘helpful’ to those who do not help themselves. Taureans born 27th April-4th May or with 4-11 degrees rising will feel this vibration the most over 2015.
Pluto now in Capricorn, continues to have a positive but radical impact on your sign. For several years Pluto will continue to bring a deeper awareness and help you to find the thread of your own personal truth amid the myriad twists and turns of human belief systems, moral and legal laws. Distilling the essence through intellectual seeking, languages, travel, religions, philosophies, and spiritual law. Pluto’s mode of operation is to force an issue through these areas and cause you to think more deeply, more honestly about what is truly of most value. There will be some courageous ditching of ballast along the way in the form of now irrelevant beliefs and ideals.
There should be a growing understanding of different systems of thought, as Pluto catalyzes you to dig deeper and, as the rose-tinted specs fall away you begin to see how a mental perspective or someone you idolized is really like, warts and all, and this, ultimately is freeing and empowering. Because Pluto here gets you questioning more deeply or expanding your knowledge base through education but also maturing your understanding through experience. Pluto here may also mean someone you have an intense connection with could be linked to travel or has a lot to teach you. Any of these could have a profound effect upon you.
Taureans born beginning 4th-9th May or with 11-16 degrees rising will feel this vibration the most in 2015.
