Diana's Monthly Capricorn Forecast for November 2016
Until the 22nd the Solar energy makes it a forward-moving phase when friendships, associations or more involvement within a community or a group of kindred spirits could be a key feature. A future-orientated phase when you may be working to realize an idea or ideal which has been on the backburner for a long time. Networking, group connections and technology may also be emphasized. You could be making some new friends…
From the 13th this will be a period in which to discuss, consider, and generally chew the fat in the company of others. You also may be networking or spending more time online. Others could find you articulate and your ideas interesting and you feel in an experimental mood as you explore different ideas or avenues of expression. You could be surprised by another’s style or unusual take on things. Equally others could see you as unconventional or inspiring.
HOLD THE INTENT
From the 13th Mercury is working from deeper levels and your mind tends to become introspective and more open to emotional or subtle energies. You may be a little preoccupied by things going on in the background of your life, and you could find yourself zoning out or just feeling mentally at 6’s and 7’s as things may be a little up-in-the-air. Zoning out isn’t necessarily a bad thing and, at this time, you can do your best thinking in a restful, nurturing environment or in a private bubble with others. Imagination and intuition are working well. Also a good time for healing, spiritual or imaginative activities, so, listen to your inner guidance, hold the vision of how you want it to be, and picture moving beyond what is now getting in the way of your happiness and wellbeing.
FEED THE SOUL, HEAL THE BODY
Until the 12th there may be less opportunity to share your feelings in an open way. Or you just will not be in the mood to do so. You’ll tend to keep things to yourself and may be feeling uncertain about where you stand in a relationship, regarding finances or a property. You could be mulling over the past and finding emotions getting in the way of rational thinking. 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 have the chance gently iron out any inner turbulence or physical imbalance. This long transit means you are likely to feel more supported by others within a closed circle or other special environment. It is likely you can benefit materially through others in these types of shared environments. A good idea would be to immerse yourself in nurturing pursuits which feed your soul whenever you can.
(23rd-25th Saturn over Mercury: Mental pressure, or more responsibilities related to contacts, communications mental and physical. Vehicles, travel, transport or schedules may present challenges).
BUT also in the last 10 days expansive Jupiter on Saturn can mean you are on a learning curve or spreading your wings into unfamiliar territories leading to future growth and abundance. Focus and tenacity may be needed but you widen your horizons. An important teacher or teaching could come at this time.)
GOOD IN YOUR SKIN
From the 12th 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 to connect with others and some of you could be discovering a significant other.
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 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.
(In the last week there is likely to be more intensity, deeper questioning related to relationships or regarding joint or shared money or property. Someone or something bugging you …make sure you aren’t projecting your emotions on to them).
Until the 9th Mars is in your sign for the first time this year, which means the need for you to be more decisive or to take action has been increasing. Or, if you are not in the mood, Mars tends to bring 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, if you do not harness it, so take the trouble to engineer enough down time for yourself and recharge those batteries. 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.
MOBILIZING ASSETS & TALENTS
From the 9th Mars is demanding you put more effort and decisiveness into getting organized in a physical or security-orientated sense. The piggy-bank, possessions or any other bit of territory may need a more motivated and decisive approach. And that may mean a more dynamic application of talents and skills. You could be striving to get your hands on certain things or places, but watch your step related to basic material security, money, property or possessions as Mars can be demanding or impulsive at times which could translate into being pushed into unwise or hasty actions. Your physical strength may be stretched or there may be tensions as you try to work through what needs to be done in a physical/material/financial sense. You could be more actively engaged in diet or health matters – your own or someone else’s.
From the 22nd the Solar energies could manifest as a pull towards things going on behind the scenes or in your private life – perhaps to do with the past or perhaps it’s a work in progress. You’ll probably have to put aside personal desires and become more aware of another’s needs or requirements, even when you are not in the mood. Others may not fully realize how much you are dealing with as the Sun is in a karmic house during this phase. But this is no time to cling to ego, as, if you do, you may feel let down.
SOWING SEEDS FOR THE FUTURE
Saturn now in the sign before yours, Sagittarius. This position of Saturn marks a time of preparation for when it enters your sign in late 2017. This is the time to tie up the loose ends from the past, face up to behaviours the consequences of previous set-ups which have become counterproductive and move on. You may be doing more inner work or chuntering away behind the scenes on something. During this transit, you may be called upon to support or provide a service to others more often, who in some cases, will not grasp just how much you are doing on their behalf or perhaps not realize how much background or personal work you are dealing with. Capricorns born 3rd-8th January or with from 13-18 degrees rising will feel this energy the most.
NEW DOORS OPENING
Jupiter is in your area of career and overall life direction until Oct 2017. This puts Jupiter in a good angle to your sun-sign. This means more doors swinging open, but not all will be leading to your highest good or worldly success, and you could be puzzling over which is the best way to go. It’s more likely you could gain more recognition and be learning new things professionally. By the end of the transit you should feel more established in your field or the die is cast regarding your general direction and that will be the time when you can identify more clearly with what you do for a living or your worldly responsibilities. Capricorns born 31st Dec-8th Jan or with 10-18 degrees rising will feel the energy the most over this forecast period.
(Jupiter on Pluto in the second half of the month helps you with the power to succeed through intuitive evaluation of what really matters most at this time. There may be a feeling of things being out of your personal control, or a battle of wills so keep your integrity intact but don’t be obsessive).
Uranus: Capricorns born 10th-13th January or with 20-23 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
Pluto: Capricorns born 3rd-9th January or with 14-17 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.

As well: continuing today, and concluding on Saturday, Mars is tussling with the planet Jupiter. Your area of spouses, partners, and agreements is filled with a sensitive, caring activity by Mars in Cancer. It may be frustrating to deal with a long term contract, or attend to a long term relationship, while this awkward clash continues.
Also today: beginning today, and ending on Tuesday, the Moon is collaborating with the planet Saturn. Your area of taboo, shared finances, and sex is infused with a feeling which is dominant, and creative by the Moon in Leo.
