Overview for this Month: Pisces (All)

May 2016

There are wonderful aspects made from your communications sector to planets in your sign this month, dear Pisces. So, while a retrograde Mercury may lead to some misunderstandings, you're nevertheless expressing yourself with special flair. If you focus on slowing yourself down, this can be a very rewarding month. You may be turning to past projects and interests rather than embarking on all-new endeavors, but there is a lot of good energy with you for devotion and dedication. It's a great time for editing, revising, and reviving. You can have much success with designing, writing, and teaching as well.

There can be discoveries of different ways to connect, whether this is about communicating or commuting, perhaps because current ones are not working well. You might rediscover old interests or revisit past studies with success. Personal influence and powers of persuasion are especially strong. Ideas shared with friends or in group settings can be healing and helpful. You can find yourself in the position of guide or coach, and doing very well at it. There can be the strengthening of a friendship or a group involvement. While there can be some problems with misunderstandings as Mercury retrogrades until the 22nd and Mars does so all month, your concern and care can help strengthen close relationships.

Jupiter turns direct in your partnership sector on the 9th, and as your co-ruler, this helps build your faith and optimism. You're in a better position to see the benefits of partnering going forward, or there could be more helpful, happy, or pleasing people coming (back) into your life. Even with increased family focus starting near the end of May, your social life is set to increase. Moods are lifted. Career matters can also begin more forward momentum. There will be a few matters to iron out before everything is running up to par again (the 21-22 could bring a problem to a head), but you are certainly feeling more hopeful and spirited. You can find much joy in feeling part of a partnership or close friendship, There can be a nice spirit of forgiveness.

The Sun moves into your home and family sector on the 20th, and then Venus begins its transit of the same house on the 24th. You are moving towards a strong period for enjoying and improving family and home life. The 21-22 is tricky, but eye-opening. A Full Moon occurs and aligns with an opposition between the Sun and retrograde Mars. Both events promote new awareness, and both in initially disruptive or dramatic ways! Be cautious when it comes to mixing personal and professional arenas. Misunderstandings can be plenty, and you'll want to avoid "bad press". Impatience won't move things forward if they're not ready to go in that direction, so take some time before making needed changes.

On the 26th, the final Jupiter-Saturn square in a set occurs, stimulating tensions revolving around long-term ambitions, goals, career, and partnerships. You can get yourself all wound up about others' expectations of you - you can be frustrated with critical observations and limits imposed by others, particularly related to performance and responsibilities. It can be difficult to find balance in your life right now with people pulling you in different directions, but every effort should be made towards simplifying things so that you can get as close to balance as possible.

From May 27th, Mars moves back into your solar ninth house, and will spend its final month of retrograde motion in this area of your chart. You may be dealing with waning energy or enthusiasm levels until you recognize that it's about redirecting these things to the right channels. Legal or publishing matters can require a second look. Watch that you don't focus too much on the frustrations of differing belief systems and opinions. Look for old studies, interests, and passions that may spark a new interest, but be sure to approach them in fresh ways so that they aren't left unfinished this time around.

May 2016 Pisces Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

May 2016

 

Overview.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

Until May 20th: The Sun continues to highlight your solar third house--a time of the year in which you are most likely to be a "busy bee". Communications, short trips, errand-running, and general busy-ness feature now. You could have a finger in many pies, so to speak, as your curiosity is piqued by a larger variety of things than usual. Used well, this could be a period in which you come up with solutions to a number of problems. You are more inclined to take pride in your intellectual accomplishments and/or your ability to socialize and make connections.

From May 20th forward:With the Sun spotlighting your house of family and home, these areas are your instinctive focus during this period. Your family, home, property concerns, roots, and heritage come into focus and become a source of pride. You are likely quite preoccupied with feelings of security and your inner experiences. This is a time when you send down roots and seek a feeling of belonging. You could be thrust into a position of leadership on the home front. Ego confrontations with family members are possible now, but the best way to handle this energy is to do your best to strengthen your relationship to your family and your home base. This is a time to do what you can to build trust in your family life and a strong foundation within yourself, so that regardless of what you meet in the outside world over the next months, you have a secure place to return to. Besides spending more time tending to domestic affairs, the focus can be on cultivating and nourishing your inner foundations that support you and your growth. This is a time to collect yourself--to fill your well, so to speak.

Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort

Until May 24th:

Venus plays in your solar third house now, indicating a more light-hearted, curious, and intellectual approach to love and pleasure, as well as a more easygoing communicative style. During this cycle you are especially charming in your communications with others. Your words are soothing, and you tend to use words to smooth over problems that you see around you. You are mostly cheerful in your approach to others, and perhaps somewhat intellectual. Essentially, you are quite companionable during this cycle. You enjoy talking about what interests you, and you see value in the exchange of ideas. Sometimes this transit brings benefit through siblings, communications, or short trips. Good companionship is as equally important as romance to you during this cycle. You prefer an intellectual, communicative, and witty partner just now, and your powers of attraction are increased through expressing these types of qualities. You are most attracted to wit, cheerfulness, and verbal rapport, and you are especially good at mediating conflicts now. If you were to begin a romance or friendship during this cycle, it would likely be quite light-hearted.

From May 24th forward:

Venus warms your solar fourth house now. During this cycle, you are especially fond of the life of the home and family. You are more receptive and gentle on a romantic level, and tend to be sentimental or nostalgic now. You may particularly value the aesthetics in and around your home during this period. If things are out of whack on the home front, you will do whatever you can to create a peaceful and stable atmosphere. Loyalty and sensitivity in your relationships are more important to you than typically. You might focus on ways to earn money in or from your home. This is a calming influence--a time when simple pleasures most appeal.

Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

Mercury is retrograde from April 28th to May 22nd:

All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of communications with a partner or about partnerships, as well as communications with or about family and home, because Mercury rules these areas of your life. It will be important to avoid signing any contracts or making important partnership or family/home decisions during this cycle.

Occurring in your solar third house this time, extra care should be exercised when it comes to composing letters, emails, making phone calls, and with communications in general. There may be the need to revisit old, nagging issues with siblings or neighbors, errands could go wrong, you might have trouble getting from point A to point B (example, transportation problems), emails or letters get lost, and so forth. Idle chit- chatting during this period may have repercussions! People might be misunderstanding your words. You may be forgetful during this cycle, and it makes sense to allow yourself extra time to get to appointments, if they are not cancelled in the first place! It would also be wise to double-check your work and communications before sending them off.

Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage

Mars is retrograde from April 17-June 29

All Mars retrograde cycles affect you in the areas of personal finances, income, possessions, comfort, and values. These areas might be ambiguous now, or cause for concern and anxiety for the time being. Reassessing these matters becomes necessary. This is a good time for taking a hard look at your budget. It's also a time for understanding how the management of your personal resources impacts your confidence in general.

From April 17th to May 27th:

Occurring in your solar tenth house this time, enthusiasm for career and public or professional matters may wane, perhaps due to some problems or setbacks in these areas of life. Ambiguities might have you second-guessing or reassessing your goals. You might feel less confident or you could simply feel more cautious now. Some projects may stall. You may be feeling as if you are only going through the motions when it comes to  your duties and responsibilities, temporarily lacking ambition, fire, or motivation. Refocus, backtracking, and review become necessary and recommended now. This Mars retrograde emphasizes practical and work matters. How you organize your time is in question now.

From May 27th to June 29th:

Occurring in your solar ninth house during this period, enthusiasm for higher education, travel, your personal philosophy, or adventure in general may wane, perhaps due to some problems or setbacks in these areas of life. Some projects may stall, or you could find that you are less confident about expressing yourself in adventurous ways. Your outlook on life in terms of the "bigger picture" could be more cautious, and you might find that you temporarily have less faith, or you are questioning the faith that has carried you to date. Refocus, backtracking, and review become necessary and recommended now. Your outlook and lust for life, for the time being, might not be as natural or spontaneous as it has been.

May 2016 Pisces Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

May 2016

 

Overview.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

All month: The Sun is illuminating your communications sector now, suggesting "busy-ness" and movement. You are exploring and searching now, making connections, and paying attention to your immediate environment. Social interaction is emphasized during this period, and is for the most part light-hearted. Give other people a little extra time and attention, notice their efforts on your behalf, and strengthen your connections. You are more curious and alert than usual, and you could be quite busy with errands, paperwork, phone calls, and light socializing. Much energy is expended in understanding and adapting to your immediate environment. Siblings, neighbors, close relatives, friends, and co-workers may play a more important role than usual in your life during this cycle. You are more interested in exploring your own neighborhood than you are a different country. This is not a time of big adventure-seeking. Rather, it's a time of little adventures close to home. Neither is this a time when you are especially focused. In fact, you could have a finger in many pies right now. You are especially resourceful now, and you could find yourself enjoying (or seeking) attention for your intellectual know-how. The ability to express and communicate your ideas is extremely important to you at this time. You are eager to investigate new things, whether scientific or technical.

Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort

Until May 8th:Venus continues to grace your solar second house during this period. You might receive gifts or bonuses now, or you find much comfort in what you already own and have. You may be a little extravagant with money for the time being, as your desire for luxury and comfort items is increased now, and this is something to watch for. When it comes to love, you value those who make you feel comfortable and secure.

From May 8th forward:With Venus moving through your solar third house during this period, you are mostly cheerful in your approach to others, and perhaps somewhat intellectual, during this transit. Essentially, you are quite companionable now. You enjoy talking about what interests you, and you find great value in the exchange of ideas. Sometimes this transit brings benefit through siblings, communications, or short trips. During this period, you are most attracted to wit, cheerfulness, and verbal rapport. You are especially good at mediating conflicts. Smoothing over differences using your diplomacy skills figures now.

Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

Mercury is retrograde from April 28th to May 22nd:

All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of communications with a partner or about partnerships, as well as communications with or about family and home, because Mercury rules these areas of your life. It will be important to avoid signing any contracts or making important partnership or family/home decisions during this cycle.

Occurring in your solar third house this time, extra care should be exercised when it comes to composing letters, emails, making phone calls, and with communications in general. There may be the need to revisit old, nagging issues with siblings or neighbors, errands could go wrong, you might have trouble getting from point A to point B (example, transportation problems), emails or letters get lost, and so forth. Idle chit- chatting during this period may have repercussions! People might be misunderstanding your words. You may be forgetful during this cycle, and it makes sense to allow yourself extra time to get to appointments, if they are not cancelled in the first place! It would also be wise to double-check your work and communications before sending them off.

From May 22nd forward - Mercury is direct:

Mercury is right at home in the third house, and offers a natural curiosity, facility with words, and the ability to multi-task successfully. More time spent on the phone, writing emails, in the car making short frequent trips, chatting, running errands, communicating with neighbors and siblings, visiting friends and relatives, and doing paperwork is likely now. There can also be a tendency to fuss over insignificant matters now, however. Also, "information overload" is also a possibility. This may be a busy time with neighbors, classmates, siblings, and community affairs. Your interests are especially varied now, and perhaps scattered. It's an ideal time to pick up information from your environment and the people in it, as your tendency is toward a certain level of intellectual detachment just now. Your mind is often distracted, particularly when circumstances call for you to stick to routine, so this is not the best transit for focusing on one task or project. Your mind is especially inquisitive during this cycle, when learning, short trips, and other forms of communication and making connections, appeal strongly. Some are fidgety or nervous during this cycle, perhaps due to increased errand-running, phone calls, and the like. Others enjoy the challenge of tackling a variety of subjects. As well, talking, writing, and studying can be good ways to handle stress.

Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage

Mars is retrograde from April 17-June 29

All Mars retrograde cycles affect you in the areas of personal finances, income, possessions, comfort, and values. These areas might be ambiguous now, or cause for concern and anxiety for the time being. Reassessing these matters becomes necessary. This is a good time for taking a hard look at your budget.

May 2016 Pisces Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

May 2016

 

Overview.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

Until May 10th:

The Sun continues to transit your solar second house. This is the most "financial" period of the year for you. You might have a more materialistic view of life for the time being, or you have an increased interest in your own possessions, during this cycle. You are more attracted to objects and possessions that give you a sense of comfort, status, or luxury now. You probably should be on the lookout for a tendency to create your own financial stress due to extravagant spending habits. At this point in the year, you are unlikely to take many risks, however, and you can be quite resistant to change. This is a time when "comfort zones" are more important to you than usual--you value the familiar.

From May 10th forward:The Sun is illuminating your communications sector now, suggesting "busy-ness" and movement. You are exploring and searching now, making connections, and paying attention to your immediate environment. Social interaction is emphasized during this period, and is for the most part light-hearted. Give other people a little extra time and attention, notice their efforts on your behalf, and strengthen your connections. You are more curious and alert than usual, and you could be quite busy with errands, paperwork, phone calls, and light socializing. Much energy is expended in understanding and adapting to your immediate environment. Siblings, neighbors, close relatives, friends, and co-workers may play a more important role than usual in your life during this cycle.

You are especially resourceful now, and you could find yourself enjoying (or seeking) attention for your intellectual know-how. The ability to express and communicate your ideas is extremely important to you at this time. You are eager to investigate new things, whether scientific or technical.

Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort

Until May 16th:Venus continues to grace your solar second house during this period. You might receive gifts or bonuses now, or you find much comfort in what you already own and have. You may be a little extravagant with money for the time being, as your desire for luxury and comfort items is increased now, and this is something to watch for. When it comes to love, you value those who make you feel comfortable and secure.

From May 16th forward:With Venus moving through your solar third house during this period, you are mostly cheerful in your approach to others, and perhaps somewhat intellectual, during this transit. Essentially, you are quite companionable now. You enjoy talking about what interests you, and you find great value in the exchange of ideas. Sometimes this transit brings benefit through siblings, communications, or short trips. During this period, you are most attracted to wit, cheerfulness, and verbal rapport. You are especially good at mediating conflicts. Smoothing over differences using your diplomacy skills figures now.

Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

Mercury is retrograde from April 28th to May 22nd:

All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of communications with a partner or about partnerships, as well as communications with or about family and home, because Mercury rules these areas of your life. It will be important to avoid signing any contracts or making important partnership or family/home decisions during this cycle.

Occurring in your solar second and third houses this time, extra care should be exercised when it comes to new financial initiatives, composing letters, emails, and phone calls, as well as communicating with neighbors and siblings. Back up your computer and allow sufficient time for delays or transportation mishaps when going for appointments. As well, it would be wise to choose your words carefully. What you say or write can too easily be misinterpreted during this period. There may be the need to revisit old, nagging issues regarding personal finances. Take this time to re-budget instead of making premature purchases. Hold off on decision-making regarding money. Instead, take the time to re-think your sources of income and how you spend your cash during this period, but put off finalizing anything important for the time being. In fact, some money-making ideas or ventures may be put on hold due to circumstances beyond your control. It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to communicating with co-workers, neighbors, and acquaintances, or take this time to re-examine issues rather than communicating about them prematurely.

From May 22nd forward - Mercury is direct:

With Mercury in your solar second house, this is a strong period for analyzing your cash flow, income, and earning power. You are more practical and rational in your approach to finances during this period. With your conscious mind focused on money and possessions, as well as personal values, this can be a strong period for gathering new money-making ideas. Alternatively, it could be a time when you tend to fret over your finances. Conversations tend to be practical rather than frivolous now. Financial gain may come through communications.

Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage

Mars is retrograde from April 17-June 29

These areas might be ambiguous now, or cause for concern and anxiety for the time being. Reassessing these matters becomes necessary. This is a good time for taking a hard look at your budget.

You are moving towards a strong period for enjoying and improving family and home life. The 21-22 is tricky, but eye-opening. A Full Moon occurs and aligns with an opposition between the Sun and retrograde Mars. Both events promote new awareness, and both in initially disruptive or dramatic ways! Be cautious when it comes to mixing personal and professional arenas. Misunderstandings can be plenty, and you'll want to avoid "bad press". Impatience won't move things forward if they're not ready to go in that direction, so take some time before making needed changes.

On the 26th, the final Jupiter-Saturn square in a set occurs, stimulating tensions revolving around long-term ambitions, goals, career, and partnerships. You can get yourself all wound up about others' expectations of you - you can be frustrated with critical observations and limits imposed by others, particularly related to performance and responsibilities. It can be difficult to find balance in your life right now with people pulling you in different directions, but every effort should be made towards simplifying things so that you can get as close to balance as possible.

From May 27th, Mars moves back into your solar ninth house, and will spend its final month of retrograde motion in this area of your chart. You may be dealing with waning energy or enthusiasm levels until you recognize that it's about redirecting these things to the right channels. Legal or publishing matters can require a second look. Watch that you don't focus too much on the frustrations of differing belief systems and opinions. Look for old studies, interests, and passions that may spark a new interest, but be sure to approach them in fresh ways so that they aren't left unfinished this time around.
