Diana's Monthly Virgo Forecast for February 2015
Until the 19th there’s a brighter, less inward, vibration around. So that could manifest as more opportunities to be in environments with scope for play and enjoyment. Or to join with those out to have a good time. More emphasis is given to children, youngsters or romantic partners for some, and for others, there could be more socializing and maybe more contact with arts/entertainments or the leisure industry. You are more likely to feel the light of appreciation from others or be participating in activities you find fun or personally empowering.
From the 19th it’s time to make yourself useful. You may be dealing with more chores or niggly details, or, this may 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 applying skills. So, dealing with the ‘to do’ list and getting things organized better seems advisable, but there will be smiles along the way.
THE KNOTTY DETAILS
Mercury is focusing your mind upon the practical side of life. The daily duties, discussions, ideas or paperwork may be on your mind. Thoughts could revolve around, repairs, maintenance, or health – yours or another’s. Thinking about the mechanics of daily life 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. Mercury is retrograde until the 11th which may cause hold-ups but after the 11th things should go more smoothly.
Until the 21st Venus is strong in her favourite place and affairs of the heart are favoured. You and someone could be feeling a closer rapport, no matter whether it’s a personal or professional association. A special someone could come into your life but all relationships, personal, or professional tend to flow more easily. You and another could be enjoying eachother’s company.
Until the 20th Mars in your opposite sign means personal or professional exchanges are likely to be more dynamic and lively. Because of the agenda of another, there are more physical demands put upon you to be decisive or take action. You and someone could elicit strong opinions in each-other or, conversely, maybe you feel a strong pull towards someone or they feel a strong pull towards you. Once again patience may be needed as Mars here can make you too hasty, handle someone badly, throw caution to the winds, or make a false start. So the advice would be to try to keep things on an even keel and don’t dive in head first at full revs with all guns blazing before you are sure of your ground.
But overall, co-operative interactions are favoured as personal or professional alliances can be beneficial and productive if both horses are pulling the carriage in the same direction. If your opposite number is not having the same transit in the same place (which is unlikely), then you may see them as indecisive, or dragging their feet. So sometimes you will just have to slow down and try to understand things from their point of view. Equally don’t let someone overtire you because the Mars energy is coming at you through them and you are trying too hard or spreading yourself too thin on their behalf.
Another’s willingness to take action with/for you can be invaluable as it may help you to be more effective and functional than if you were going it alone. During this transit, diplomacy and people skills need to be cultivated more.
From the 21st Venus is in a place of emotional depth and something can touch your feelings deeply, or you can move others – great for the romantics and artists among you. In general, it can mean things may become more intimate or ’involved’.
Venus here could also manifest as a relationship helping you out materially or supporting you emotionally in major or minor ways. So, a good time to acquire and use resources to benefit your joint material interests with others. Negotiations could go in your favour and there could be deeper, more rewarding bonds with another. Some of you may feel like shifting into more commitment in a material or emotional sense – depending on your natal chart and on your own ability to create what you want. Also, a relationship could revolve around a shared space, possessions or property but things can be ironed out to mutual advantage.
TRUST YOUR GUT
From the 20th Mars is in the sector of your solar chart which clears the decks for new beginnings. This Mars position means coming up against conditions which provoke an inner change. You could be intensely aware of the sensibilities or rules of others at times and you may have to bite your tongue or be more dynamically sensitive or confidential when it comes to a key relationship. Debts due or owed (moral or otherwise) may need a more decisive approach or maybe someone is being more assertive – even coercive – towards you. You’ll probably have to feel your way rather than ´think´ your way, and even though you are sensitive to another’s feelings or set of values, you want to stick up for yourself , and be true to your own values and inner nature. You are looking for a win/win solution.
However, you’ll tend not to want to put all your cards on the table with some people.
ALL THINGS ARE CONNECTED
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 25th-29th August or with 2-6 degree 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 6th-11th September or with 14-19 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 29th-31st or with 6-8 degrees rising will feel the energy the most this month.

What today looks like:
Beginning today, and ending on Tuesday, our Moon is tussling with Mercury. The Moon sitting in Taurus might mean a desire which is stable, and reliable in your area of foreign countries, higher learning, ethics and law. It might be awkward to be adventurous at your job, or research health matters, while this awkward connection continues.
As well: starting today, and concluding on the 20th, Venus is moving through Pisces. For you, Virgoans, this means about a month where agreements, and partnerships are more valuable, and pleasant to you. Venus, when in the sign of Pisces, provides an aesthetic which is perceptive, and intuitive.
Elsewhere: continuing today, and ending on the 2nd, Mercury and the Sun are combining in Aquarius. This intensive connection brings a creative, curious motivation to your area of routine tasks, health, and techniques. Right now, it may be good to speak in front of an audience in matters of routine.
Also On This Day:
- The planet Pluto starts a trine aspect with the Moon today, which ends on Tuesday.
- Starting today and ending on Tuesday, Jupiter is in a square aspect with our Moon.
- Mars carries on transiting Pisces until the 19th.

First retrograde on 6th-28th February-Aquarius – Pisces.

Make a fresh start through travel or plunging into a new environment which can teach you alot.
The second Solar eclipse of the year occurs on October 23rd in your Solar 3rd house
Improve yourself through education, communications, social life and creative self-expression.
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.
