The Moon is again in Capricorn all day. The
Sun semi-squares Chiron this morning. The desire to learn and grow through experiences and through
others is strong, but may be hampered by a lack of confidence under this
influence. A long-term aspect comes exact today: Uranus square Pluto. (The last
of the series will occur in March 2015). This
influence stimulates dissatisfaction with the way we've been living our lives,
and with what we consider to be restrictions, whether these are internal or
external ones. We may no longer be satisfied with superficial elements of our
lives, humdrum routines, or situations that keep us feeling tied down or locked
in. Buried feelings and motives can surface now, possibly
erratically. Major changes can occur, and these help us to break out of monotony
and to break bad habits. This is not the best time to make major commitments.
Mars will further activate this square tomorrow and the next.
Financial security and enjoyment of the good things in life are more important to you than usual this month, dear Pisces. Financial activity, including pressures or concerns, can be a strong focus this month,
but so can comfort levels and goals that help you to feel more secure. Facing up
to recent excesses may be an issue. Avoid unnecessary displays of rebellion in
your relationships. Watch also for a tendency to gamble or lend indiscriminately. Some of you will be seeing some real conflict between your own values and the values of friends or groups,
and may be feeling undervalued at times. You could be dealing with changes in business income or problems with an associate or friend, but while there can be some
social challenges this month, a friend may be integral in achieving your goals, and partnering with a friend in some tangible way can be part of the picture.
Escapism is not the answer; dealing with problems as they arise is. There can be deep changes in your value system that create the need to transform your long-term goals, and that affect your business income. Alternatively, changes in your long-term goals and dreams create the need for new systems for earning a living.
Opportunity periods occur on the 10-11 and 17-20, when synchronicities occur
that seem magical. Personal magnetism is powerful virtually all month, but
especially on these dates. Venus aligns with dreamy Neptune in your sign on the 10-11 and others are most certainly drawn to you now. You can be very persuasive, in a gentle way, so do be careful how you handle this quiet power! There can be a strong desire to help others right now, but keep in mind that playing into someone's fantasies may not be helpful in the long run. This is a good time to make a first impression or to get noticed.
Your life picks up pace in the last week of the month, and the 29th's Solar
Eclipse brings new and improved energy for learning, studying, and connecting.
2014 continues the theme of learning to take your work hat off, dear Pisces,
and truly enjoying yourself. In the first half of the year, and particularly
from mid-March to mid-July, avenues open to express yourself in creative and
romantic ways. This is a time for exploring your desires, different ways of
"playing", and enjoying yourself in the process. By mid-July, ideally you'll have found more ways to entertain
yourself and others, and the focus shifts to work, health, and daily habits.
Opportunities to expand your reach and to improve your health abound. The year
ahead is one of work and play, dear Pisces, but you may take either to excess at
times! Love can be fun and casual this year. Intimacy can be a challenge, especially
from February forward, but also an area of important life lessons. Admirers can
be plenty - you're coming across very well! Relationships with children can prosper in 2014. If you need to make repairs
or simply to improve the enjoyment factor in these relationships, this is an
excellent time to do so. Energies of 2014 can bring out the escapist in you, particularly in the first half. Consider if this is doing more harm than good. Saturn helps out again this year
by reminding you, gently, of your responsibilities. Work with this energy in
order to come to a healthy balance. Use May's energies to stabilize a romance, monetize a hobby, join a higher
learning program to upgrade your skills (especially creative ones), or make
travel plans. Wonderful energy is brought to your work, daily routines, and health
endeavors from mid-July forward. Especially from September on, your natural
talents and skills are in high demand. If you're looking for work, this is an
excellent time for opportunities. It's also strong for innovative new health
and wellness routines. Money from work can improve or increase. This is a time
for breakthroughs in your practical life. You bring more confidence and energy
to your work and to your daily life as well as self-improvement efforts. A
money-making or work idea may very well be golden at this time! Watch
for overload, but do take advantage of this time to make real improvements. More profitable business areas this year include online, technology,
creativity, health, and the service industry. The second half of the year
especially is a time when your work
ethic is recognizable and is integral to improving your income.
can nag at you from time to time this year, however. The desire for more predictability
may not be fulfilled this year. You're challenged to think outside of the box.
Shared money and resources as well as loans and debts are areas of flux and
change. This is a time for settling debts as much as possible. From March to
mid-May, work on anger issues regarding a spouse, intimacy, debts, and
obligations to others, which can be sensitive spots for you. There can be a wonderful focus on education this year - more responsibility
and effort are put forth. It's an especially important period for upgrading your
skills and doing research on professional goals, as you are coming to a
professional peak of sorts beginning at the very end of 2014 and lasting until
Jupiter continues to move through your romance sector until mid-July, opening
up opportunities to you. You can have more admirers now. Love and romance may
enter your life, or they are enhanced with good humor and warmth, and social
engagements abound. For singles, meeting a special person is highly likely,
although it is not necessarily a person who is "partnership material". You are
feeling quite free from responsibilities at this time, making it easier for you
to let your hair down and have a good time. Your openness to enjoying yourself
and more casual relationships now can make this period of your life an
unforgettably pleasurable one.
Work will be a stronger focus in the second half of 2014 - there can be a
whole lot of it! For the most part, however, you're likely to enjoy it. It's not
that the fun is over, but rather what you define as "fun" is now changing. For
some, a romance settles and stabilizes.
Because your partner sector ruler is Mercury, your close relationships are
particularly vulnerable to Mercury's retrograde periods. These are periods
when love could be on the stagnant side, a partner is reflective, there are
communication problems with a partner, or when relationships are confusing. Mercury's retrogrades in 2014 occur from February 6-28, June 7-July 1, and October 4-25. The more significant of these periods are
February 6-12 when
Mercury is retrograde in your sign and it is easy for others to misread you, and
June 7-17 when Mercury is retrograde in your romance sector--a
double whammy of sorts. For all periods, however, it's a good time for slowing
down, reviewing your situation, and gaining a new perspective on problem areas...cont'd
