Diana's Monthly Virgo Forecast for February 2016
Until the 19th you may be dealing with more chores or niggly details, or, this may also be the moment to get to grips with health issues (yours or another’s) or a better diet and exercise regime. You may also be putting more effort into maintenance, repairs, or using skills. So, dealing with the ‘to do’ list and getting things organized better seems advisable, but there will be smiles along the way.
Until the 14th Mercury is in a more innovative sector of your Solar chart. Now you enjoy playing with ideas and speculating, maybe a little wildly, on this or that or the other possibility. But, whatever you are doing, there may be more laughs or distractions along the way. Your creative juices are flowing and you are more articulate which may help with beating the drum on something. Also, there’s likely to be increased communications either with or about young people, lovers or pets. On the other hand, you could be more romantically expressive or creatively inspired at this time.
From the 14th, Mercury is focusing your mind upon the practical aspects of life. Thoughts could revolve around, repairs, maintenance, or health – yours or another’s. Thinking about the mechanics of how something might work best will definitely be a keynote. Also you could be learning useful new skills or blowing the dust off those you already have – either out of choice or necessity. Practical advice will be of service.
Until the 17th the Venus position may mean a more sociable or lucrative period when you may feel the appreciation 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 17th, 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.
Mars is in a transit of your Solar communications sector accelerating mental processes and firing up the way you express yourself. A great time for getting to know people, places or concepts.
Comings and goings may increase or you find yourself more in the stream of information exchange and this would be a good time to float a new concept or body of work. However, there may be tensions and you can feel overloaded with too much on your mind. Sometimes, it could feel that certain others are too impatient or over-assertive but, your own reactions may be too defensive or pinickity. It’s better to be measured and decisive in what you say, keeping lines of communication open rather than wasting energy wondering about someone’s deeper motives.
In general, there could be more correspondence or other types of paperwork than usual and flying hither and thither for business or personal reasons. Overall, you should start to feel more confident about making decisions or defining certain objectives more clearly. You can be proactive and successful with media, promotions, negotiations or simply speaking up for yourself in a more assertive way.
From the 19th 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 get the best out of partnerships and other close associations. You and another could be teaming up or doing business together. Mutual interaction – or attraction is a key theme.
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 obligations or work harder at getting along with others in a community or neighbourhood – any of which may feel 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. This is the time to get things more how you would like them to be.
Virgos born 28th August-4th September or with from 13-17 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
Jupiter is now in your sign until next September. 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.
Virgos born 10th-15th September or with 18-23 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 – in either direction. Virgos born 29th August-1st Sept or with 7-10 degrees rising will feel the energy the most this month.

What today looks like:
From today until Friday, the Moon and the planet Uranus begin teaming up in Aries. This intensive connection brings a nurturing, free-spirited feeling to your area of joint finances, sex, and taboo. Right now, it may be good to join a group in a crisis.
As well: continuing today, and finishing on Sunday, the Sun is clashing with Mars. The Sun present in Aquarius may mean your area of organization, routine, and health is infused with a motivation which is individualistic, and idealistic. It might be difficult to talk to your co-workers, or have a technical discussion, while this trying, difficult connection continues.
Elsewhere: continuing today, and concluding on Saturday, the planet Mercury is moving through Capricorn. For you, Virgoans, this means a period of two days where relaxation, fun, and leisure are provided with a rational nature, and are better understood by you. Mercury, when in the sign of Capricorn, provides a consideration which is disciplined, and tenacious.
Also On This Day:
- The Sun continues transiting Aquarius until the 18th.
- Jupiter continues a sextile aspect with Mars today, which ends on the 20th.
- The planet Saturn starts a trine aspect with our Moon today, which concludes on 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.
