The Moon is in Gemini until 4:46 AM EDT, when it enters Cancer.
Restlessness gives way to an instinctive need for peace and quiet. A
feeling of belonging and safety are motivators now. Our feelings are
insular and deep, and our attachments are emphasized now. More attention
to our personal lives, family, or close loved ones is likely now.
Mercury contraparallel Neptune today reinforcing the strong influence of
subjective impressions today. We are more understanding, or at least we
try to be, and can more easily access imagination and intuition today.
Health, work, school, habits, and services are in strong focus this month,
dear Pisces. Last month, Jupiter made a major move, beginning a year-long
transit that boosts your desire to improve and expand your daily routines,
health, and work. This month, several planets are helping out. This is a time
for self-improvement efforts that involve getting yourself back in charge and in
shape. You can improve your skills, learn new things, take on new projects, and
discover ways to heal and strengthen your body. While you are rather focused on
flaws and problem areas in your life, ideally in order to improve things, others
may not be as interested, so do what you can to avoid giving unsolicited advice.
You have increasing faith in the services you provide or the work you do. The
Full Moon on the 10th will remind you to balance work with rest, especially if
you've been overdoing work efforts. You might also learn of a secret or
otherwise hidden information that significantly affects your life. From
mid-month forward, you're likely to learn ways to improve your relationship with
co-workers and classmates, or for bringing more harmony and balance to your
working environment. For all of your efforts towards tightening up your
routines, Mars' presence in your adventure sector is encouraging you to broaden
your horizons. Restlessness can sometimes pull you away and distract you, but
try not to feel ineffective in the process. Instead, look for ways to balance
your life. With Saturn in your adventure sector since October 2012, you may not
have had much chance to expand your knowledge, travel, or learn and experience
new things. With Mars here now, you have more courage and gumption to get going.
Choose your causes wisely during this time, as you can sometimes push your ideas
and beliefs too hard. For some of you, there can be legal difficulties
associated with work, or an urgent need to update skills. The last week of
August brings strong energy for partnering and negotiating.
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
