Pisces - January 2018
Happy 2018, Pisces! There is a good deal of cosmic commotion in your house of friends in January, which will have you focussing on friendships and what others in your life want from you! Lilith and Saturn recently passed into this part of your solar chart, where they will join powerful Pluto. Lilith as we know, is all about expressing your inner self and following your instincts, so you might begin to realise now that some of your friends don’t really know you very well. A chain of conjunctions between Mercury, Saturn and Lilith from the 12th to 19th will send some honest words into platonic relationships; this is a time for saying what you feel, even though others may not be happy with your opinions. The Sun and Pluto will also connect from the 1st to 18th, a passionate combination of energies which will add some jealousy to relationships with others in your social circle. Love could arise now with a friend, and emotions will run deep. The new Moon of the 17th sends someone new and interesting into your world, too.
Mars meets Jupiter in your house of travel for the first three weeks of the month, and this is an adventurous connection which will inspire you to get out of your comfort zone and explore the world. This is a very physical, athletic aspect, therefore it you are looking to up your exercise levels in the new year, it’s a good time to join a sports team or take on a hobby which allows you to work off your stress. Studying is very favourable too, in particular you will probably find an interest in philosophy, religion and modern languages. Mars and Pluto coming together from the 4th to 15th and in these days you might find a new religious or spiritual group with common interests to your own. Just be careful not to take the moral high ground with others; it’s important not to pass judgement on those who need a sympathetic ear.
The first of two January full Moons will hit your house of love and leisure on the 2nd. If the festive period for you has been, as it often is, all about everyone else, it’s time to refocus on your own needs and have some time just for you. Put aside activities and people that don’t allow you to express your natural creativity and spontaneity, and spend time around those who can help you have some fun. Being around children will be especially favourable, your conversations will flow freely and you will really appreciate their love of life. Neptune connecting positively with the Moon here adds some extremely imaginative vibrations, making this a wonderful time to begin a writing, artistic or dramatic project. Expressing yourself will be very important around this time.
Our second full Moon on the 31st is also a very important lunar eclipse, and work and health will be in the spotlight at this time for fishes. Important work projects could end now and you will need to work out where you want to go next. If you have had lingering health issues, they will reach a stage where you need to get yourself checked out. It’s a time of important changes in your everyday life, routines could change as we move into February and you will need to adapt to different surroundings. Mars hitting your career sector on the 27th will also enhance your sense of ambition and desire for success, so it may be time to have a rethink about where you want 2018 to take you. Have a lovely January!
