We’re heading into the last trimester of 2016, but it’s New Year’s Eve all over again for you, Pisces! A glowing lunar eclipse in your sign on the 16th sets the stage for major changes ahead. You always experience a full moon in Pisces around this time of year, but 2016 delivers a full moon eclipse your way. As a result, get ready to close out chapters from your past. Deals and projects that you’ve been working on over the past six months may finally come to fruition. You’ll be ready to move on to another level of living that you may not have experienced before. And if you’re not ready? The eclipse will still take you to a different place whether you like it or not!
But this isn’t anything to fear. The cosmos, in its wisdom, knows that we can get stuck in ruts and inertia can set in. That’s what eclipses do: they shake, rattle and roll us so that we’ll see the light and move on. This one may make you aware of people and situations in your world that are holding you back, as Mars is in a tough angle. Mars doesn’t like being cornered and neither will you. Chances are that you’ll break free of a job, relationship, group activity or family tie that has worn out its welcome. If you’ve been dutifully keeping a stiff upper lip and your opinions to yourself in recent months, don’t be surprised if you speak up, loud and proud, around eclipse time.
And as eclipses always occur in pairs, there’s a solar event taking place on the 1st. This one occurs in your partnership sector which deals with both romantic and business alliances. As this is a new moon, a fresh beginning can start in love. Singles could find a keeper over the next six months and attached Pisces will make more of a commitment to their lover. Truth be told, if your romance is not built on solid ground you may consider moving on as stern Saturn urges you to look way down the road—do you want to put even more time into a situation that’s not working out? But Neptune could cloud your thoughts, and Mercury is retrograde in this part of your chart until the 22nd. Don’t make any major decisions in love until after then.
The solar eclipse could also introduce you to a person who’s interested in teaming up with you in some sort of business alliance or project, and it could prove to be quite profitable. That’s because on the 9th ( a drumroll, please) lucky Jupiter enters your finance house for the first time in 13 years. This house, the eighth, is all about investing, such as buying real estate (a rental property or your own home), retirement plans, stocks, windfalls (such as an inheritance or nice legal settlement) or entering into a joint venture. Jupiter governs profits, and this is the house of passive income. Teaming up with someone else is the way to go.
For example, if you’re thinking about going the entrepreneurial route, Jupiter can help you line up investors. A friend or relative may ask you to invest in a startup of their’s. You could patent an invention or make some wise investments in the stock market.
Jupiter blesses you in yet another way, as the eighth house also governs sex, intimacy and shared emotions. The next 13 months could be some of the sexiest on record for you! You may be more open to sharing your thoughts with a loved one, and spending more quality time with a lover will become a priority. Single Pisces are in a hot steaming’ place to meet a new flame, thanks to the solar eclipse and Jupiter rolling into your commitment sector. Attached Pisces will see their relationships go to a higher level: engagements, babies, cohabitating, or renewing vows. When the Sun enters Libra on the 22nd it will be joining benevolent Jupiter, so the next four weeks could be game-changers when it comes to your love and family life.
Pluto has been retrograde since April, forcing you to examine your deepest held wishes and aims. You may have realized over the past five months that things you thought that you wanted are no longer important, leading to a revised wish list. You change as a person when Pluto backstrokes through this part of the sky, and this small but mighty planet was also asking you to consider the company you keep: friends, neighbors, team members and groups that you’re a part of. When Pluto goes direct on the 26th you may move forward with a smaller but tighter cadre of friends and associates whom you trust implicitly.
And as one door closes, another opens. Megawatt Mars enters this part of the sky on the 27th, introducing you to a whole new set of people. Networking is the way to go in October, so get ready to crush it on social media, make plans with your tribe and join clubs and organizations that will introduce you to like-minded people.
