Diana's Monthly Virgo Forecast for May 2014
Until the 21st , the Sun is in a more outgoing, expansive area which tends to raise the spirits as you see fresh possibilities outside of the routine box. Some of you may have itchy feet, and with the vibrations increasing opportunities to escape the daily grind this is a good time to get out and about more and try new things. Travel or educational pursuits could be emphasized and you should keep your eye on the distant horizon.
Until the 8th, your mind may be more focused on those from a distance, travel, or another unfamiliar environment. You’ll tend to be thinking bigger and becoming more aware of fresh potential, or a distant horizon. This could be a good time to refresh your mental palette and think in bright new colours. A plan may be forming in your mind. There may be a breath of wind from further afield or exchanges with a guide, those with specialist knowledge or just someone with a refreshing slant on things. Mercury enjoys this communicative sector which also emphasizes higher learning, publications and the legal side of things. Another way this transit might work is you take the opportunity to beat the drum about something, get the word out, be the guide or the guided, the informer or the informed.
PLOTS AND PLANS
From the 8th, discussions, correspondence and ideas may revolve around short-term plans or longer term considerations like where you are going from here in life. Career, a new enterprise, or those who may facilitate your aims could be highlighted. You may find your goals and schemes are being validated or rejected by the by the way things are unfolding across the wider stage – so keep your ear to the ground. You will be putting mental effort into expressing yourself in the best way you can so as to get the result you desire. Vehicles, transport or communications equipment may also be on your mind. Around mid-month expect the unexpected and roll with the changes.
Until the 3rd, Venus is strong in her favourite place and affairs of the heart are favoured. You and someone could be feeling a closer rapprochement, no matter whether it’s a personal or professional association. A special someone could come into your life but all relationships, personal, or professional tend to flow more easily.
From the 3rd, Venus is in a place of emotional depth and you can really move others with Venus here or something can touch your feelings deeply – great for the romantics and artists among you. In general, it can mean things may become more intimate or ’involved’.
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.
IMAGE AND REPUTATION
From the 21st you will probably be taking certain targets or overall direction more seriously or you have to become more aware of the rules imposed by authority figures, bureaucracy and anyone you wish to impress favourably. The overall idea is to project a good image and be consistent and responsible as you go forwards. Reputation or how you are packaging something may be emphasized.
Until late month, discussions, correspondence and ideas may revolve around this area and you will be putting mental effort into expressing yourself in the best way you can so as to get the result you desire.
Vehicles, transport or communications equipment may also be on your mind.
Saturn is challenging you to work more consistently and routinely at speaking, writing, media, education, short distance travel. You should be developing communication and people skills – perhaps integrating a new knowledge or dealing more with deadlines or steadily developing your people, writing or speaking skills or being more creative with your self-expression through art. Communications equipment or vehicles be problematic, but be key to your success. It’s also likely that you’ll be learning that often the ‘truth’ is no more than a ‘perception’ or a judgment which is time-bound and therefore finite. In other words it has an expiry date which changes with age and experience.
Virgos born near the beginning of the last decanate or with 17-21 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
Until July Mars is in a long transit of a materialistic area of your Solar chart. Mars is demanding you put more effort and decisiveness into getting organized in a material or security-orientated sense. The piggy-bank, possessions or any other bit of territory may need a more motivated and decisive approach. And that may mean a more dynamic application of talents and skills. You could be striving to get your hands on certain things or places, but watch your step related to basic material security, money, property or possessions as Mars can be demanding, impulsive or too hasty at times. Your physical strength may be stretched or there may be tensions as you try to work through what needs to be done in a physical/material/financial sense. Virgos born in the first/ second decanate or with 8-12 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this month.
Until next July, Jupiter will help you grow and learn through new associations and friendships, or within a collective of others who have interests or beliefs in common. New friends, colleagues or those with a shared outlook will expand your mind and your world over this phase. Equally you could be the enabler, teacher, guide connected to a key group of others.
Virgos born in the first/ second decanate or with 12-14 degrees Virgo rising will feel this energy the most this month.
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.
During this long transit of Neptune through your opposite sign you may end up being the ‘prop’ that others lean upon or you may sacrifice your own style or your preferred plan to serve and facilitate another, and as long as you have separated the needy from the greedy, all will be well if you respect and honour your own wishes too.
Virgos born in the first decanate or with 6-8 Pisces rising will feel the energy the most this month.
(There is a helpful vibration around for you Virgo because of the positions of Saturn, Neptune and Jupiter positively underpinning educational pursuits and developing skills through literature, or other media, it helps bring more heart-based interaction in close relationships. It’s possible others may provide more support or you gather together with those of like-mind for humanitarian or other reasons).

What today looks like:
Starting today, and finishing on Wednesday, our Moon is tussling with the planet Saturn. The Moon present in Aquarius may mean a free-spirited, quirky need in your area of health, routine tasks, and jobs. While this awkward connection continues, it might be frustrating to chat about a short trip, or to have a technical discussion.
Also today: continuing today, and ending on the 5th, the Sun is coordinating with Neptune. Your area of different cultures, investigation, and travel is provided with a resistant, stable motivation by the Sun in Taurus. While this oppertunistic collaboration continues, it might be good to collaborate with a stranger, or to investigate a contract.
Elsewhere: continuing today, and concluding on the 12th, Mars is clashing with the planet Pluto. Mars present in the sign of Libra may mean an action which is balanced, and compromizing in your area of finances, property, and values. It may be awkward to buy something fun, or grow your wealth, while this trying, difficult connection continues.
Also On This Day:
- Mercury continues transiting Aries until Tuesday.
- The planet Mercury starts transiting Taurus until the 7th.
- The Moon carries on transiting Aquarius until Wednesday.

Make a fresh start through travel or plunging into a new environment which can teach you alot.
The second Solar eclipse of the year occurs on October 23rd in your Solar 3rd house
Improve yourself through education, communications, social life and creative self-expression.
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 is in Capricorn from November 5th 2013 – March 6th 2014 which is good news for you Virgo as the potential abundance of Venus will be gracing an area related to creative enterprises. Relations with youngsters, animals and romantic partners will also warm up. It may also bring ease and flow into artistic projects or speculative ventures or something you do simply because you enjoy it and gives you the chance to hang-out in a more fun way with others.
Mars entered Libra, on December 8th 2013 to stay until July 25th 2014. An extraordinarily long transit dynamically activating your money and property sector. Physical effort may be expended getting things as you want them in this area and physical stamina may be needed related to basic stuff. Maybe you are putting more effort into acquiring or shifting physical objects, building, making practical improvements or balancing the books. Competitive buying and selling may be a feature of this period. This position of Mars may stimulate your urge to create an environment for yourself or others or helps with health and fitness. On another level this would be an optimum time for you to develop your inborn gifts and talents into more marketable skills. Or to cultivate something you know could be of value to others, and which they will appreciate – which will be rewarding for you.
Jupiter is in Cancer until July 16, 2014 when it enters Leo.
Expansion will be via new associations and friendships, or a collective with certain interests in common through which you can learn and grow. Kindred spirits or those with a common cause will expand your world over this phase.
Your work schedule or personal social agenda is likely to be bulging at the seams at certain points and you‘ll have to be careful not to overestimate or underestimate another’s capabilities or 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 will 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.
When Jupiter moves into Leo in July a more introspective period begins. This is a good time for developing things behind the scenes, imaginative or spiritual work, particularly in collaborations and projects which teach you new things.
But this is also the area where you can be your own worst enemy, shooting yourself in the foot because you fall back into old habits, emotional patterns or beliefs. Letting go and forgiving will help you grow and add to the pool of goodwill for us all no matter how insignificant or difficult it may feel at the time.
All natives of Virgo will feel the influence of Jupiter over the year but before mid-year will be more favourable.
From Oct 6th 2012 Saturn began a 2 and a half year transit of challenging you to work more diligently at communications, media, education, short distance travel. You should be developing speaking or writing skills and perhaps integrating a new understanding of language or a system of thinking or getting your head around communications equipment. Developing these skills will be like chipping away at a sculpture, so be consistent and patient. You’ll be learning that certain ‘perceptions’ aren’t necessarily based in fact and may not even be true. As you slowly get to the bottom of how much in your experience is perception and how much is ‘truth’, you may realize you need to make some changes to your own habitual ways of communicating or viewing the world. Saturn leaves here on Xmas Eve. Virgos born 7th Sept or from 15 degrees Virgo rising will feel this vibration the most.
Uranus, will be working from Aries for about 7 years and gradually will be revolutionizing the way your joint finances work. It will bring change and sometimes destabilization into the area of joint resources and could affect your basic material security. However, if you have been struggling in this area, the tendency of Uranus to reverse the order of things may turn the cards in your favour. This transit could also mean that someone significant could leave your life and destabilize your emotions. Just remember to stay open to something (or someone) you thought could never happen, happening. It could be a revolution in your thinking related to your joint material situation and deeper feelings. This energy also favours new technology, renewable energy, or other areas you might term ’alien’ in a mystical or psychological sense. Virgos born 31st Aug-10th Sept or with between 8-17 degrees rising will feel this vibration the most.
For many years, Neptune is transiting through your area of close relationships – personal or professional. Neptune brings a more supportive, empathic or psychic flavour to all types of one-to-one relationships. You may find yourself relied upon by someone who needs caring for. This is not the best transit for business type alliances as things may not be as good as they are cracked up to be. In personal relationships signals tend to get crossed, so, just take more time to make sure things are clear between you and avoid putting others on a pedestal or giving away your power because of your ‘blind’ faith. Hopefully, each side should be seeing each other as you really are with no frills attached. Now is the time to balance your high ideals and fantasies with the reality of what’s going on in the love department or within a professional relationship. So, avoid over-romanticizing partners or ignoring the small print in a contract during this period.
Virgos born from the 26th-31st August or with 3-8 degrees Virgo rising will feel this energy most in 2014.
The life-changing force of Pluto, in Capricorn, since 2008, is in a brilliant angle to your Sun sign and means regeneration from deep levels through recreational activities or speculative enterprises. You may become deeply involved in artistic or recreational activities which have the potential to influence many. You may strive to get more creative or artistic control in an area which allows you to shine in your own special and unique way.
Regarding children or young people this could be a powerful influence and life-changing. There will at times, be a radical letting go of old scenarios which could ultimately be empowering. This is the energy of rebirth affecting your choices in all kinds of relationships which may feel quite compelling and you could discover a deep soul connection with someone. Conversely, romantic connections could be intense and lead to a new beginning – one way or another.
Virgos born 2nd-7th September or with 10-14 degrees of Virgo rising will feel this energy most this year.
