Diana's Monthly Virgo Forecast for October 2016
Until the 23rd 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. So that includes what resources you can make use of inside or outside and that includes your inborn resources like talents and abilities, things you value about yourself.
MEETING AND GREETING
Until the 7th Mercury is in your sign putting you more in the stream of information exchange and mixing with others. A time to put those people skills to work as you outline intentions or ideas more clearly and accurately or listen with more care or perspicacity to what they are saying. There may be more paperwork or other things to get your head around and mental processes may be accelerated. Communications equipment, vehicles, travel or transport might also be emphasized. At times there may be so much coming at you that you feel a bit scattered so engineer quiet spaces for yourself whenever you can.
(Mercury and Jupiter at the beginning of the second week means it is easier to get the bigger picture or be more upbeat in your thinking).
(Sun over Pluto at the end of the second week could indicate intensity or a clash of wills/a letting go necessary before moving forward).
FIGURING IT OUT
From then 7th conversations tend to have a more practical slant. Revolving around material matters, or basic resources and you may be looking into how to get your ducks in a row. Thinking will revolve around essential needs and gathering information about whatever would be best for yourself or others financially/materially. Plans may focus upon certain desirable resources or practical ways of achieving this or that result. You may be wondering how you can best express yourself creatively through material objects. Also, buying/selling, renting/leasing could also be on your mind at this time. And stuff! What is of most value to you and even how can make more of your natural abilities.
(MID MONTH there could be some surprises with Sun on the degree of Uranus).
Until the 18th 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 art and beauty. Media is favoured as is anything artistic. This transit could bring warm, supportive relations with siblings or soul brothers and sisters. You (and another) 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 18th 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.
(In the last 3 days Venus on Saturn means more restraint or a more formal feeling in how you are relating).
A NEW SENSE OF SELF?
Mars is in a more spontaneous, and for some, romantic area, giving you the trigger to be more in the mood to take a chance on love or to speculate upon other possibilities. Whatever is going on, you could feel more in your power, more in touch with your ‘child within’ but equally, you could be busier because of children or younger ones in your life. Mars tends to be hasty, so it’s best to sleep on something before making major decisions and don’t risk what you can’t afford to lose.
There could be occasions when you feel at the centre of attention or more physically in demand. Your creative energy, or competitiveness will tend to come to the fore. Overall this is the time to get active with projects you enjoy and which are rewarding and empowering. Great for the entrepreneurs and ‘creatives’ amongst you, and you may be more in the mood to invest time or resources on an outside chance.
(In the 3rd week Mars on Pluto could lead to extremism or over the top expectations from or to you. However, difficult things can be achieved and ambitions can be successful as long as you are aware of another’s interests as well as your own).
From the 23rd the Sun is in a sociable, busy area and you could be meeting and greeting or connecting over the wires, corresponding, maybe sharing what you know or sourcing useful information, and probably running around more. It’s a time when you have more on your mind and maybe more to get your head around.
SKELETONS IN THE CLOSET
This is an important Saturn transit for Virgos. This is the time to build upon or change aspects of what was begun in your life about 7 or 14 years ago. This time around, stress-testing of Saturn may challenge you to take responsibility for the dust swept under the rug from the past. Therapeutic work triggers inner change and, externally, a more body-centred approach through healthy practices should help you build better emotional/physical foundations.
You may have to put more into family relationships or work harder at getting along with others in a community or neighbourhood – any of which may feel lacking in some way but there will be material there to build upon. Anything you have just been tolerating regarding your domestic setup, place on the map or with family or extended family will now need your attention especially as loose ends from the past may impact the present. This is the time to get things more how you would like them to be.
Virgos born 2nd-8th September or with from 10-16 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
(The current Saturn/Neptune transit brings uncertainty and indecision into this area, so harder work is necessary to clarify things, get organized and go forward in a confident, focused manner. With Neptune in a long transit of your opposite sign Pisces the danger is to lose yourself in another, or to be the prop which holds them up. On the other hand, you may not fully realize their value in your life or their purpose which may change the dynamics of the interaction between you. Either way you may be or may have been deluding yourself about someone close (long or short-term). Now Saturn is in close degree to Neptune you have the chance to be more realistic in your perceptions, how to balance how you wish things to be with how it really is in the now. On the other hand someone you feel is familiar to you on first meeting could also be crossing your path…).
A FERTILE SOIL TO EXPERIENCE AND GROW
Jupiter is in your area of finances, property material resources as well as talents. So, until Oct/2017 remain open to whatever resource, knowledge or experience might help you expand mentally or physically into fresh territories. Such decisions could teach you a great deal and even turn out to be lucrative or worthwhile in other ways down the line.
Jupiter here will also help you decide what is of highest priority to you at this stage in your life‘s journey. He will help you to think positively about basic resources (money or property) and he will help you realize your own worth through opportunities for you to show others what talents and abilities you have. Others are more likely to show appreciation of your property, talents or experience over this long transit.
Virgos born 26th August-4th September or with 3-12 degrees rising will feel this energy the most.
During the 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 another, and as long as you have separated the needy from the greedy, all will be well as you integrate more levels of yourself. But remember to respect and honour your own wishes too. Stronger boundaries may be needed at times, but you can be the facilitator too and there will be much bubbling up within you as you slowly develop new concepts or come to fresh realizations. Careful you don’t get a distorted view of someone’s worth – in either direction. Virgos born 1st-3rd Sept or with 8-11 degrees rising will feel the energy the most this month.
