The Moon transits practical, goal-oriented Capricorn all day, and our
feelings are expressed reservedly and sparingly. We don't want to expose
ourselves to the feeling of being vulnerable. Our sense of responsibility is
stronger than usual, and we aim for efficiency in most areas of life now. Our
view of life in general is realistic. Our careers and objectives are in focus
with the Moon in this practical sign. With
Venus semi-square Chiron today, blocks to intimacy are possible as we focus
on differences rather than similarities in our relationships with others.
You are especially accountable for your actions this month, dear Pisces. Everyone seems to be looking over your shoulder, observing what you do and what you are capable of. This is one of the busiest times of the year professionally, when you are in high demand; or for some, when responsibilities to others are in strong focus. A New Moon occurs on the 2nd, activating and bringing power to your sector of career and reputation. This brings new and fresh energy to your professional goals, your career itself, and to your standing in society. It's the most public time of the year for you, when others notice you for your accomplishments. Depending on how you've handled your life in the past year, this can be a pleasing or uncomfortable time. It's certainly time to take charge. In December, you may be in the position to solidify a creative project or deal or to inspire others with your vision. You are more effective, in general, at attempts to express your creativity. Support from behind the scenes or from an unlikely source is likely to come to you around the 10-12. Take advantage of the 10th, when you are recognized for the work you have done, and the 26th, when a partnering opportunity might arise. A family matter demands your attention around the 17th. This is a time when when it's especially beneficial for learning to detach yourself from old, outworn attitudes towards making money and towards personal possessions. From mid-month, you are more willing to take healthy risks instead of staying stuck in a rut. Your spirit and courage are on the increase. From the 21st, your social life begins taking more precedence over your professional life, and although friendships or associations with groups may be a little strained, you're more focused on straightening things out. You may feel a little withdrawn when it comes to daily communications and light chit-chat, however, so that extra time for rest and reflection may be in order.
year 2013 is stronger for relationships of all kinds, and especially love and
"fun" friendships, dear Pisces. You're also a lot more grounded and confident.
Ideally, you use the transit of Jupiter to your solar fourth that began in June
of last year and ends in June of this year to the utmost - filling your inner
well and strengthening ties with family. This way, by the second half of 2013,
you can bring more natural confidence to a new cycle that involves exploring
your more playful, dramatic, and creative side. It's a great year for home
improvements of all kinds. Again this year, however, finances can be up and
down. However, with Saturn no longer leaning up your secondary financial sector,
you're in a slightly better position now with a better outlook for money sources
beyond your personal income, including bonuses, a partner's contribution, and
loans. It's your own income that requires some change. When it comes to money,
you are challenged to think outside the box in order to come up with viable
plans to improve your finances. Love is easier this year - considerably so.
Serious relationships are less strained. Intimacy challenges lift. Romantic,
playful, and casual relationships in the second half of 2013 can be easy to find
(possibly a little too easy at times!). New avenues for recreation, amusement,
creative expression, and hobbies can open up. This is a good year for
stabilizing and organizing many areas of your life. The first week of February
is an opportunity period that can involve partnership and financial gain. It's
also strong for work in teams and for cementing friendships, although there can
be rocky times with some friends or groups that you're associated with. Your
values are changing, and they sometimes seem in stark contrast to those of
friends. You are looking for solid answers and adjusting your belief system in
major ways. Events might occur that have you thinking more deeply about your
beliefs and morals. You can assume a leadership or teaching role this year quite
naturally. You are able to talk about spiritual matters in an accessible way. In
fact, throughout 2013, others can be quite intrigued with your unique vision.
In the first half of 2013, you are building your self-confidence and your
"inner well", dear Pisces, and the "work" you do in this respect is important.
In the second half of the year, Jupiter moves into your romance and creativity
sector, and this is a more outgoing time when you feel secure enough to express
yourself uniquely. Ideally, you have built up your sense of security in the
first half of the year so that you can take full advantage of this Jupiter
What can happen during this period involves a stronger desire and ability to
enjoy yourself - without apology! In the second half of 2013, doors seem to open
for new ways to express yourself, through recreation, romance, art, and
entertainment. Many of you will have more admirers, romantic prospects, and
opportunities for casual love affairs. While these may not lead to commitment or
may not last in the long term, it's a strong time for opening up to new
possibilities and for gaining confidence in yourself. Because Jupiter is
connected with your career sector, there can be opportunities for romance
through your work for some of you. You are more courageous when it comes to
meeting others and sharing your heart and time with them. Love tends to find you
easily, but you can improve your chances even more by circulating more
frequently than usual, grabbing opportunities to go out, and by putting yourself
If a love affair ends (more likely in August when Jupiter opposes Pluto),
it's likely to be a blessing in disguise, and there is unlikely to be a shortage
of opportunities to begin anew.
Your own ruler, Neptune, forms a lovely aspect to Jupiter in your fifth house
this year, and this suggests a very natural confidence and romantic or creative
experiences that boost your ego, at the very least, and possibly even inspire
you. There may be connections to love made through travel or higher education
with Jupiter's trine to Saturn in your adventure sector this year.
In general, 2013 is likely to be a more empowering, stable, and grounding
year for you. You are feeling considerably more natural, and generally speaking,
others are appreciating the qualities that come most naturally to you. People
might often feel drawn to you for guidance, healing, or spiritual questions. You
radiate warm, healing energy. You are also more grounded and reliable than
usual. Don't hesitate to grab at opportunities that allow you to grow, learn,
and create, and especially to share these things with others.
Quick-moving Mercury rules your partnership sector, and travels virtually the
entire zodiac in the course of the year 2013, as is common for any year. Mercury's retrograde periods may
point to slow downs in relationships, or times when a partner is harder to
understand, indecisive, or hesitant. These periods are February 23-March 17
(strong because it's in your sign), June 26-July 20
(strong because it is in your romance sector), and October 21-November 10.
When Mercury is in your sign, a partner or potential partner is seeing you in
an especially positive light, and tends to have your interests and needs as a
priority. This occurs from February 5-April 13, although from February 23-March
17, Mercury is retrograde in your sign, and this can point to some mixed
signals, signal crossing, or stalling. There can be past relationships in high
focus during this period. You might also have an admirer but you may be keeping
a distance for the time being.
There is an unusually large number of planetary bodies in your sign this
year much of February and March.: the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Neptune, and
Chiron. February 26 to March 8 is especially powerful. This suggests that you
have more power to direct your life, to take control, and to influence others.
