Pisces time… Welcome to the Life Aquatic…
A string of aspects occurs this week while Mercury enters shadow, all of which will be revisited in March then again in early April, suggesting the next few days are the opening act of a work in progress that extends over the next eight weeks. Recurring aspects include links to Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto and the North Node – all framing the upcoming Mercury retrograde phase and playing integral roles in the storyline unfolding. It may initially feel like an unravelling, of course, but it is so that all the component parts can be reassembled in better way further down the line and with a refreshed perspective.
Neptune is the star of this show, so pay particular attention to events, insights and even premonitions that arise around Tuesday as these will resonate significantly when Mercury goes direct around March 28th. Clarity is likely to be in short supply, but creativity and inspiration flow abundantly. If you are psychic, empathic or suggestible, this could be an off the charts period for you! This combination can also incline living in a fools paradise, sustaining an illusion that everything is okey-dokey, despite the glaring signals that they aren’t, and this caveat should equally remain present in the thought process. The overall atmosphere is harmonious, so make the best of it, even if certain matters seem to come to a standstill.
The Earth element remains strong and is anchored by the Full Moon in Virgo on the 19th. The tone is pragmatic and motivated to attainment, efficiency and overall material growth or security. Particularly where Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn have caused concern or revealed vulnerabilities to the overall structure during the last several weeks, new solutions can be found to reconcile persistent issues. Meanwhile, if Venus encounters the same perils and circumstances still appear bleak – this is an indication that certain topics still require priority status and that a greater effort should be made towards their reconciliation.
The way through is a steady and concentrated approach towards the resolution of a problem once and for all and for the long run. Pluto has pointed to (or rather stabbed at!) this matter and generated incredible upheaval in this area for years, now Saturn requires it be dealt with, and to do so requires consistency and discipline. Neptune’s influence here indicates the potential to make a sacrifice, the ability to surrender material or superficial considerations to engage a spiritual perspective that alleviates some of the pain points associated with undertaking the hard work Saturn requires at this time.
How things appear now is far detached from the outcome that is revealed in two months, though since the results will probably exceed the expectations you currently have, what occurs between now and then can only provide an upside. This is a very positive week to attend to pressing matters, business or otherwise, (even if results come in a bit later) and plant seeds for what you would like to see manifest in about 2 months. By the time Mercury rights it’s course, Venus will be joining in the conversation from Pisces and these matters will come together effortlessly.
ARIES March 20 – April 19
The fruits of your labor begin to ripen this week as several productive developments occur on the career and work fronts. A project that comes to completion likely generates positive financial returns and a raise or salary increase could be the reward for your recent efforts. Where you have worked through difficulties and overcome substantial obstacles, compensation is on the way. Recognition for your achievement leads to professional progress and the attainment of your long range goals. It you are less than satisfied with the results this period delivers, it could signal it’s time to get back to the drawing board and recalibrate your trajectory towards your objectives.
TAURUS April 20 – May 20
Your vision for the future continues to come into focus and clarifying your goals helps you to attain them over the course of time. Connecting with friends and those who might share your vision of things can be incredibly productive, as conversations stimulate ideas and insights that progress a cherished hope or dream. This will be a work in progress through early April, but the inspiration you tap into this week has a substantial influence throughout this period, so pay attention to your instincts and serendipities. The Full Moon fires your passions – a love relationship or creative project harmonizes with your hearts desires.
GEMINI May 21 – June 20
Professionally this is a highly productive period with this week revealing major clues about the themes you’ll be dealing with over the next 8 weeks. Although the next two months will see you calibrating and then recalibrating your objectives, a conversation or decision initiated this week is crucial to the result you achieve by the beginning of April, so be attentive and deliberate in all your undertakings right now. Your instincts are strong and will keep you on course. The Full Moon this week falls in the area of your root base, home and personal life. You may determine your current arrangement is no longer serving long range goals and decide to make a move.
CANCER June 21 – July 22
Difficulties that may have emerged in your relationships can be overcome as you continue to fortify your commitment. Connecting to one another through a shared vision of the future will bring you miles closer to sealing the gap that may have once divided you. Though these destinations may seem a bit vague or even reaching them untenable, the discussions initiated now do arouse reservoirs of imagination and idealism that gives you the tool box you’ll use when you do eventually build your dashboard. Social life is exciting in this period, take up an invitation to spend time with like minded people.
LEO July 23 – August 22
You are revved up to make progress in your career and work assignments do a great deal to enhance your reputation, bringing you into prominence in the eyes of your superiors or those who can help you succeed. Obstacles which you may have recently confronted become easier to handle as you find a more supportive ambience which reinforces your objectives. Finances also get a boost from your added efforts and enable you to establish your position or authority. If in business negotiations or trying for a loan, be advised that discussions this week are just the first act in a three part series between now and April. Explore the options, but avoid commitments.
VIRGO August 23 – September 22
You could be over your head in a whirlwind romance, as this week features several exquisite opportunities for enticing developments. Events have the potential to reinforce your longer range desires for something real and lasting, though if you don’t like the results you are getting, it might be time to re-evaluate the situation and recalibrate where required. This is only part one of a three act love story extending from now through early April, after all. Tune into your Full Moon phase at the beginning of the week to decide what you really want and plant the seeds you would like to harvest in about eight weeks.
LIBRA September 23 – October 23
There seems to be a work around coming up with your job, role or title over the next 8 weeks. A potential re-do is in store where a position that fell through initially finally comes back on offer unexpectedly. What is put into motion this week sets the stage for the final word you get in April. The choices you make in this period should be serving attainment of long range professional goals. Your ruler Venus collaborates with Saturn and Pluto this week, not making for the easiest of bedfellows, but giving you the moxie to assert yourself with a certain conviction, especially in a troubling domestic situation. Improve your efficiency by carving out a morning and evening 15 for meditation and visualization.
SCORPIO October 24 – November 21
This is a sweet week for a romantic liaison, and talking and texting all your mischievous desires will be an enticing distraction. Bear in mind there is a work in progress quality to the upcoming 8 weeks featuring several detours along the road to attainment of your heart’s desire. An intriguing realization or conversation that occurs this week does set up the major themes you will be dealing with. A dip back into the past is also likely and especially around the 18th if you can’t get someone out of your head, you might feel compelled to look them up to see if a second try is on order. Enjoy the revel, but hesitate to draw a conclusion for the time being.
SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 – Dec 21
Chronic financial issues begin to clear up. Either you are finally getting the help you need, or holding it down on your own. Conviction you have held to maintain your values pays off for you now as does pinching the occasional penny. Domestic life can be interesting to unusual in the 8 weeks ahead, with an intuition or insight (even a dream or de ja vous can provide a juicy clue) mid week revealing what may lie in store over the coming phase for you. Confusion will be replaced by clarity if only eventually, for now you might just enjoy a trip down the rabbit hole. A family heirloom could hold an important message for you.
CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19
Sultry winds are blowing Cap, and your attention turns to amorous (even naughty) thoughts this week. Your libido and creativity are stimulated, though you might just as easily turn attention inwards and bestow some of the love mojo you possess right now on yourself. If you are involved, or seek to be, your words can carry a distinctive weight at this time and be both alluring and convincing. It’s better not to try to make a decision over the next two months, as contracts and negotiations are most likely to curtail or require further review. Let your imagination guide you while remaining non-commital. The Full Moon opens doors to new options.
AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18
Be wary of the shell game over the coming weeks while a financial prospect remains elusive, becoming palpable at one moment, then out of reach the next. Strong imaginative influences are at play and this can yield treasure for you or culminate in defeat. Your instincts about this matter are quite strong and offer a strong anchor through the nautical adventures in store ahead. If a circumstance is feeling not quite right, then it’s on you to trust your gut and step back from what could into a financial fiasco. Social prospects brighten your days, accept invitations and enjoy the company of others.
PISCES February 19 – March 20
There is a lot to take in right now Pisces, and you have to be a bit selective about which filter you choose to see things through to make the most of the opportunities that surround you. You are in the midst of a very personal transformation and events that precipitate this week play a huge role in the outcome. Over the next 8 weeks you have a unique opportunity to explore what you really desire and while the vision of your ideal is likely to mutate between now and then, what you uncover will prove hugely inspirational to you. Friends and allies seem to have a direct insight into what makes you tick if you let them show you.
