Phew. 2017 is finally over and chances are you won’t be sad to see it go. People of the Pisces persuasion haven’t had an easy go of it over the past few years. Hard nosed Saturn spent over two years in your career and goals sector, which can bring about success but only through long hours and discipline. You may have felt like a hamster on a wheel, always racing through your days, whether you’re a stay-at-home mom or a working stiff.
Furthermore, Jupiter spent two years in your relationship area. While Jupiter is known as the planet of optimism and abundance, it can also blind you to harsh realities. As a result you may have had to face the music in serious commitments, be they personal or professional.
And that’s precisely why you’re going to enjoy 2018. Saturn has moved on to your social house of friends and networking, where it will remain through the end of 2020. And Jupiter is in a new spot too, your ninth house of blue-sky thinking, travel and taking risks.
Life is going to feel lighter and less restrictive. Which means that anyone or anything that tries to hold you back needs to be addressed by you! There will be four eclipses this year, two of them in your house of closure and transition (on February 15th and July 27th). This is your time to 86 the stuff that’s not working out, whether it’s a job, individual or personal inner demon. The good news is that the transformation will be swift and final.
You’re going to find that your social circle becomes much wider this year. People with fresh perspectives, possibly from different cultures or walks of life, will enter your space. They will introduce you to even more folks, and some of these connections will be life changing (as in–your future spouse, incredible business mentor or BFF).
Adding to the joie de vivre is the movement of Uranus on May 15th into another sector that governs schmoozing and socializing! For the past seven years, Uranus has been dragging its sorry ass through your income sector, which is not a good place for it to be. Uranus is erratic and loves to throw curve balls—and who needs dramatic unexpected sh** when it comes to their finances?
Well, Pisces, it will be moving on to a convivial place where people like to have cocktails and chat, which means there will be a lot of spontaneous parties and brunches in your future. As in the next seven years! It’s possible that a friendship or relationship with a neighbor or sibling could get derailed, as Uranus is impulsive, but chances are you’ll be having so much fun that you won’t care. Besides, one door closes and another opens—to new people.
This month there will be two full moons, one on the 1st and the other on the 31st. The New Year’s Day event occurs in Cancer, your fifth house of romance. Since full moons wrap things up it’s quite possible that an engagement could occur, you meet someone new or a baby is conceived (hopefully not all of these three things happens in a week).
This is also your house of creativity, so a project that you’ve been working on over the past six months could come to a happy conclusion. All Pisces, regardless of occupation, can score big by impressing higher-ups over the next two weeks, which includes landing a new job or promotion.
The second full moon is a lunar eclipse in Leo, the companion event to the awesome solar eclipse we witnessed back in August. Leo is your sixth house of efficiency, which naturally includes smart habits and routines. This sector also governs fitness and health, so if you didn’t stick to your diet or exercise regimen after January 3rd, know that you can get back on track in February.
The #1 thing that you should be doing this month is expanding your network of friends, colleagues and mentors. With the Sun, Pluto, Saturn, Venus and Mercury all piled into your house of networking, get out of the house and start meeting people. Hook up with an exercise buddy, go to singles’ meet-ups, tell your pals to hook you up with someone, volunteer for a good cause, join a Mommy-and-me group or find a mastermind think tank to join forces with. There will be a new moon in this sector on the 16th, making the last two weeks of January superb for networking.« This Week’s Horoscope Today’s Horoscope »
