This is an astrologically somewhat complex day. The Moon transits Capricorn
until 2:23 PM EST, when it enters Aquarius. Mercury in challenging aspect to
Uranus midday can stimulate unusual thinking and insight, but some scattered
mental energy that can lead to stress. This evening, Venus trines Uranus, and
this opens us up to new and progressive ways of relating and interacting. It
also stimulates a desire for variety in the ways we seek out pleasure and
comfort. Tonight, the Sun squares Neptune, affecting our entire day, however.
This influence takes away our sense of certainty, and we can either go with that
flow, or resist it and feel a little lost or without direction. Concentrating on artistic or spiritual pursuits is better
than focusing on things that require straightforward, factual thinking makes the
most sense now.
There is much activity in your sector of beliefs, adventure, and ideals
this month, dear Pisces, and you are encouraged to bring more of the world into your
personal life. You could be enjoying new interests and thinking about your plans in a big-picture way. There can be some forgetfulness or moments of feeling quite scattered, but Saturn weaves in and out of the picture this month, reminding you of your limits.
There can be quite a bit of temptation to bend the rules, but when it comes to
educational or legal matters, it's best to take traditional routes. This is a
good time for work on structuring your leisure time. Take every opportunity you can to learn new skills or develop your current
ones. There could be strong focus on training, learning, and connecting. If there are weaknesses in a campaign or your current level of skill, then this
is a time for handling problem areas. For some of you, there could be issues with a parent's daily affairs that require more
responsibility on your part. The first half of the month can be good for attracting positive feedback and feeling
especially liked and reinforced. You are more likely to make happy connections through activities that take you outside of the routine or onto unfamiliar ground. From mid-month forward, you feel increasingly more confident about your personality, contribution, appearance, and manner. Personal goals seem more doable. You're coming back into your own, reaching out to others more often, but also feeling self-sufficient.
There may be difficulties with a friend or group stimulated around the 10-12,
but gains coming through your connections as well. Motivation and enthusiasm are
stimulated to begin new goals. The last week of November brings a breath of
fresh air to your career, professional interests, or life direction. There may
be some form of recognition for your accomplishments or work, and incentives,
benefits, or awards can figure strongly.
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
