Diana's Monthly Virgo Forecast for May 2015
A FRESH PERSPECTIVE
New potentials are in the wind until the 21st. The Sun is in a more outgoing, expansive area tending to raise the spirits as you see fresh possibilities outside of the routine box. Time to make plans or launch into projects. 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 distant horizons could be emphasized.
LONG RANGE GOALS
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.
Mercury goes retrograde for 3 weeks from the 19th and this may be a slower moving time to dot the I’s and cross the T’s with responsibilities or the image or the red tape. Then, once the retrograde is over all your ducks are in a row.
THE RIGHT IMPRESSION
Until the 8th Venus is helping to create more favourable circumstances with authority figures, like bosses, parents who will be positively emphasized as they tend to see you in a good light. There could be an ally – possibly a female – or just someone you feel close to no matter whether they are socially above you or not, who is invaluable to your success or who facilitates an ambition. You yourself could be the one who takes a firm but friendly stand and enables another to achieve their goals.
Until the 12th Mars is in a more outgoing, expansive area of your solar chart. At key points over this transit you will be reaching out for new horizons and fresh experiences, so this may be the right moment to launch a new scheme or enterprise or to go on a journey of discovery.
You will be physically active in gathering information or learning through doing, but also grasping certain things you didn’t have a clue about before. Some of you may be getting out and about more and this is a good time to shake out the cobwebs. Travel, connecting with foreign lands, giving or taking a course would be a good idea. Some of your physical energy may be needed as you push the envelope of daily life and get right outside of the routine box by stretching yourself mentally or physically.
SCHEMES AND PLANS
From the 12th the Mars transit indicates a period for putting physical effort into achieving certain goals and ambitions. These may be career orientated or ‘via’ points on the way to where you hope to end up. Overall, this transit of Mars could inspire you to take more responsibility about your direction in life and you care more about the impressions you make on certain others. Over this transit you feel the need to work on image or reputation and reach standards which are demanded by those in authority, and, if you are decisive and energetic, Mars will help you get to where you want to go as long as his tendency to be controversial is handled. You may get frustrated with the powers that be as you feel they are slow, aggressive, inefficient or downright un-co-operative. If you manage to keep your cool and not be too hasty, you will make progress with the master-plan, but also with lesser goals and ambitions too.
A CHERISHED HOPE WITHIN REACH
From the 8th Venus warms group relationships and other associations. You will tend to feel supported or that others are singing from the same page as you move forwards with something you have hoped for, maybe for a long time. Networking, group gatherings or team efforts benefit from Venus’s sociable, helpful mood. Anything related to technology or activity online may be interesting, materially beneficial and, in general facilitate positive experiences.
From the 21st the Solar energy theme means targets or overall direction will move to centre-stage. At times you will feel the pressure of meeting certain standards or have to be aware of outer image, how you present yourself and the impression you are making on others.
You may have to be more aware of the rules, officials, parents etc or a system of some kind.. The overall idea is to project a good image and be consistent and responsible as you go forwards.
SKELETONS IN THE CLOSET
Saturn 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 and get 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 members will now need your attention especially as loose ends from the past may emerge in the present.
Virgos born 23rd-27th August or with 0-4 degree rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
A CHAPTER CLOSING
Jupiter is in your 12th house til 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 4th-9th September or with 12-17 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 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. Careful you don’t get a distorted view of someone’s worth – either way.
Virgos born 31st Aug-3rd Sept or with 8-11 degrees rising will feel the energy the most this month.

What today looks like:
Continuing today, and ending on the 30th, the planet Mars and the planet Mercury are combining in Taurus. Your area of different cultures, investigation, and travel is infused with a detail-oriented, alert curiosity, during this intensive connection. Right now, it may be good to buy something new in foreign places.
As well: starting today, and ending on Saturday, the Moon is cooperating with Saturn. Your area of organizations, clubs, and social groups is filled with a caring, comforting feeling by our Moon in the sign of Cancer. It might be beneficial to attend to the needs of your organization, or look after your group, while this easy, natural connection continues.
Elsewhere: beginning today, and concluding on Monday, the Moon is moving through Leo. For you, Virgo, this means a few days where privacy, alone-time, and reflection are fostered, and more familiar in your life. Our Moon, when in Leo, provides a desire which is creative, and expressive.
Also On This Day:
- Venus carries on transiting Gemini until the 7th.
- The Moon continues transiting Cancer until Saturday.

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.
