The Moon is in Libra all day, and creating order is the
focus through pleasing interactions with others and aesthetics in our
environment. We tend to solve problems diplomatically and tactfully under this
influence. Balancing our personal desires with those of another is likely to
figure strongly now. "Paralysis by analysis" could be an issue, as the tendency
to weigh all perspectives and to consider all possibilities can leave us sitting
on the fence, afraid to make a definite decision. Moderating, negotiating, and
compromise are themes today. However, with the Moon triggering the Uranus-Pluto
square this morning, there can be some tensions if we feel that others are
fencing us in or dictating our moves. Later today, the Moon trines Venus,
increasing our desire to establish a balance and to cooperate with others.
For many of you,
career and/or family matters have been unsettled or evolving
in the past couple of years, as necessary changes have been
taking place that serve to nudge you into a new and improved
direction, dear Pisces. This month, you receive the final
cosmic push towards your new beginnings. The Lunar Eclipse
on the 24th can bring recognition or the culmination of an
important project. May begins with a busy, sometimes
maddening pace that can reach an overwhelming point around
the Solar Eclipse on the 9th. You are reaching out to
others and enjoying the connections you're making, and many of you are all fired
up over a new or renewed personal interest. Chores and
errands can be excessive, and you might have to deal with
transportation problems and communication breakdowns on top
of it all, The last few days of May, however, brings a
stronger desire to enjoy the peace and security of family
life, and less interest in venturing far from home, as well
as nice opportunities to bond with those closest to you.
This can also be a time that you indulge in a luxury item
for the home, or when money comes through to fund a project.
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.
