Diana's Monthly Virgo Forecast for October 2014
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.
QUALITY NOT QUANTITY
Until the 24th Venus is in an area concerning money, property, possessions and other basic stuff. Overall, it means you can do okay in financial negotiations as your people skills will tend to improve. Buying/selling/renting/leasing tends to go in your favour and applying for funding or investments made under this transit can prove beneficial as long as you are sensible and don’t take a wild risk. In general, Venus tends to ease things materially and can open the path between money or other goodies and you but, just make sure the traffic isn’t travelling more away from you than towards you – unless this is your choice.
From the 24th Venus will be 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 distractions or more access to the arts. Media is favoured as is anything artistic. This transit could bring warm, supportive relations with siblings or soul brothers and sisters. You also 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.
Until the 11th Mercury is in a very outgoing, chatty area of your Solar chart but it’s also to do with education, gathering or sharing information, media etc. Increased interchanges through speaking and writing are more likely, and possibly more paper-work. Overall, it tends to be a great time for making connections, learning and sharing new stuff, in person or over the wires.
From the 11th Mercury retrogrades into Libra so conversations tend to have a more practical slant. Discussions may revolve around material matters, or basic physical needs and you may be looking into how to improve things and get it all working in a satisfactory way. So, considering essential needs and gathering information about whatever would be best for yourself or others on basic levels. Plans may focus upon useful resources or practical ways of achieving this or that result. Buying/selling, renting/leasing may also be on your mind at this time. And stuff! What is of most value to you and how can you use your natural abilities more.
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, and probably running around more. It’s a time when you have more on your mind and maybe more to get your head around. Education or travel is also highlighted and there may be plans, schedules or itineraries to consider.
Until the 26th Mars is at the root of your chart.
This means you could be busier than usual in and around HQ, or because of property or location. Decisiveness may be needed because of a living space inside or outside, or be related to a neighbourhood locally or over the wires. Points on the map, a family member, or a neighourhood, will need a decisive or assertive approach which may also make demands on your stamina and may be due to or the cause of conflict.
Mars in this area could mean a lot more coming and going within a locality or hustle and bustle around you. As always with Mars, there could be moments of tension which surface now and again and affect your mood and you may have to use pent up energies in a more positive way. Skeletons may start rattling in the closet and you have to confront emotional reactiveness or elements from the past or with parents or other family members. On the other hand you may be putting your energies into something which connects you with tradition, the family background, Mother Nature or the planet as a whole. For some, parents or parenting are emphasized – especially the male side.
A NEW SENSE OF SELF
From the 26th 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 in other ways, but don’t risk what you can’t afford to lose. Mars tends to be hasty, so it’s best to sleep on something before making major decisions.
Children, youngsters and pets are likely to be more at the forefront and there could be occasions when you feel at the centre of attention or more physically in demand. Your creative energy, or competitiveness should come to the fore. Whatever is going on, you could feel more in your power, more in touch with your ‘child within’. 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 and resources on an outside chance.
Saturn, also in this area, 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 in the last decanate or with 19-25 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
A CHAPTER CLOSING
Jupiter is in your 12th house til next August.
In general tying up loose ends from the past will help you grow and, as all things are connected, add to the pool of goodwill for us all no matter how insignificant or difficult it may feel at the time. This is also a good time for developing or finishing off things behind the scenes, doing imaginative or inner work, particularly in collaborations or projects which teach you new things and which are nurturing or healing for you or others.
But this is also the area where you can be your own worst enemy, shooting yourself in the foot because you cannot change old habits, emotional patterns or beliefs. In general, this is your opportunity to heal old wounds and touch base with your spirituality.
Virgos born in the middle decanate or with 15-21 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 if you 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.
Virgos born in the first decanate or with 4-6 rising will feel the energy the most this month.

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.
