Diana's Monthly Virgo Forecast for October 2015
On Oct 13th there will be a new moon at 19 degrees Libra which could elicit changes – possibly sudden or radical which will be occurring over the following month wherever Moon or Uranus are transiting in your natal and sun-sign charts.
In the sun-sign chart:
VIRGO and Virgo rising: The next 4 weeks is an appropriate time to consider how to improve material security. Also how to make more of assets, not only in the world outside but from your talents within. Long-term: There are likely to be sudden changes through important close relationships which affect income or property and possessions. You are learning to be materially more self-reliant but, when you least expect it, things could take a turn for the better materially or emotionally.
Until the 24th 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.
Conversations tend to have a more practical slant. Revolving around material matters, or basic physical needs and you may be looking into how to improve things or 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. Mercury is retrograde until the 9th.
FEED THE SOUL, HEAL THE BODY
Venus finishes her long transit of your 12th house on the 9th. Until then you may not be in the mood or the situation to let go of being the support for another and be self-indulgent. You’ll tend to keep your feelings to yourself or be uncertain about where you stand in a relationship, or regarding finances or property. You could be mulling over the past and finding emotions getting in the way of the present. Others can be oblivious to what’s going on for you as you take a step back, touch base and, with Venus’s knack of finding the balance, you gently iron out any inner turbulence or physical imbalance. This long transit means you are likely to feel supported by others within a closed circle or other special environment It is likely you can benefit materially through others in these environments. A good idea would be to immerse yourself in nurturing pursuits which feed your soul whenever you can.
GOOD IN YOUR SKIN
From the 9th Venus is in your sign, supporting a more gregarious, sociable mood and could boost your love-life and other close relationships. Meeting the world with more ease and enthusiasm after the previous phase which was less certain and more introspective. Reaching out more to connect with others and some of you could be tying the knot with a loved one.
Professional relationships get a boost with more opportunities to mix and mingle successfully or connect with those important to you. With Venus here you will tend to come across as more welcoming and attractive – good news for business as well as your personal life. On the other hand, you could be feeling somewhat self-indulgent and inclined to treat yourself to activities, or purchases which boost morale or are a valuable asset. It’s not all easy-peasy with Venus, which also rules money and other material resources like possessions and property, and you’ll need to work to balance things, so just make sure that the flow of abundance is not flowing more from you than to you – unless that is your choice. Overall this is a good time to work the energy to your advantage and reap the potential benefits.
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, so take the trouble to engineer enough down time for yourself. 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 24th 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
Saturn has returned to her previous position and is challenging 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.
Outwardly, you will have to meet family obligations or work harder at getting along with others in a community or neighbourhood – any of which may be lacking in some way. 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.
Virgos born 23rd-28th August or with from 0-5 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
Jupiter is now in your sign for about 12 months. This means it’s time for a real growth spurt in your life and things could be taking off in (several) new directions and it will be up to you to be guided by what feels right to you. You will discover much through those from different backgrounds or belief systems, about their ways of seeing things, so, quite a learning curve there but in other areas too. More travel, foreign cultures or higher education could be part of the picture. Just try to avoid trusting to luck or overlooking important details and expanding too far too fast. This is your opportunity to think bigger and reach for the golden ring on the merry-go-round of life.
Early Virgos or Virgo rising or those born 3rd-10th September or with 11-17 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
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 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 – either way. Virgos born 29th August -2nd Sept or with 6-9 degrees rising will feel the energy the most this month.

What today looks like:
Starting today, and concluding on the 15th, the Sun is collaborating with Mars. Your area of home-life, instincts, and family is filled with an agenda which is athletic, and restless by our Sun in Sagittarius. While this natural, oppertunistic link continues, it may be good to buy something for your family, or to buy something for your home.
Also today: continuing today, and finishing on Thursday, the Moon is clashing with the planet Jupiter. The Moon present in Gemini may mean your area of career, life-path, and society is infused with a desire which is intellectual, and knowledgable. It might be difficult to make a public appearance, or appear in front of an audience, while this tough, awkward clash continues.
As well: beginning today, and concluding on Sunday, our Moon is moving through Cancer. For you, Virgoans, this means three days where groups, aquaintances, and friends are more nurturing, and homely to you. The Moon, when in Cancer, provides a desire which is sensitive, and nurturing.
Also On This Day:
- The Sun continues transiting Sagittarius until the 21st.
- Venus carries on transiting the sign of Libra until the 4th.
- The Moon continues transiting Gemini until Friday.

Diana's 2015 Virgo 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

THERE WILL BE 2 SOLAR ECLIPSES IN 2015:
The first Solar eclipse of the year occurs on March 20th in your 7th/8th 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 a communication was unclear or you confuse someone with your own lack of clarity.
Time to begin new things through connection with others in close relationship both materially and emotionally.
The second Solar eclipse of the year occurs on Sept 13th in your solar 1st house
Time for a self-improvement program. Make a start on tackling what is of highest priority for yourself personally.
Venus will be in a long transit from mid-year…
Venus will be in Leo from June 6th – Oct 9th 2015
Feelings may be kept under wraps or relationships tend to be within a private little bubble. There could be more going on emotionally than you are ready to admit to others. A ‘worthy cause’ may be one of the ways Venus is showing herself in this part of your solar chart. Your intellect is your dominant function, so you may reason that the way a certain relationship is going is all for the best, or fated to be like this or like that, or whatever. What it amounts to is a time when you hesitate to reach out freely in relationships and there may be something unresolved within your own psychology that needs attention before you do. However, if you have your intention firmly fixed on the highest good in a selfless way, your rewards will be great. A wonderful time for escaping to a beautiful place and to immerse yourself in nurturing activities which feed your soul.
Jupiter moved into Leo in July 2015 suggesting this will be a time to develop something 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 after mid-year will be more favourable.
Jupiter moves out of Leo and into Virgo on August 11th signalling the beginning of a real growth spurt in your life when your mind will be opening to fields of interest which teach you new things. Travel, foreign cultures or higher education could be part of the picture. You’ll be entertaining new possibilities, looking to the distant horizons and thinking bigger. The expansive, benevolent influence of Jupiter will encourage a new understanding and could plunge you into unfamiliar scenarios where you learn a great deal. A good time to launch into new projects or a fresh enterprise. Also a time to look into legal matters in a major or minor way.
Virgos born up to mid September or with until 24 degrees rising will feel the energy the most over the forecast period.
Venus is in Leo from June 6th- Oct 9th and during that transit there will be a happy collaboration with Jupiter sign between 25th June – July 7th, indicating potential success in a material, financial sense. You can get yourself a bargain or acquire something of great value to you.
Saturn transited into Sagittarius at the root of your chart on Xmas Eve beginning a 2 and a half year cycle of having to work harder at family relationships and finding it more challenging getting along with others in a community or neighbourhood. Anything you have just been tolerating regarding your domestic setup, place on the map or with family members will now need your attention especially as the past may emerge in the present. Maybe you feel a lack regarding these areas.
Otherwise, you may be stuck in the past, have baggage which is restricting or have other commitments which feel burdensome. Effort may be needed to manage things at home, as you build a new or improved place for yourself in the world. The up side is that you can feel hugely satisfied with what you achieve and how you have matured emotionally.
Virgos born up to 4th September or with until 13 degrees rising will feel the energy the most.
Saturn returns to Scorpio between June 14th-Sept 17th. Continuing to demand you work more diligently at communications, media, education, short distance travel. You should be developing speaking or writing skills in a consistent manner and perhaps integrate a new understanding of language or a system of thinking. You may find communications equipment is challenging or a getting something off your chest takes longer than planned. 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 from the 17th Sept or with from 27 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 you emotionally. 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 deeper feelings and material situation. This energy also favours new technology, renewable energy, or other areas you might term ’alien’ in a mystical or psychological sense where there may be revelations. Virgos born 3rd-14th Sept or with between 11-21 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 27th August-3rd September or with 4-11 degrees Virgo rising will feel this energy most in 2015.
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 3rd-9th September or with 11-16 degrees of Virgo rising will feel this energy most this year.
