Pisces - February 2019
Hi there, Pisces! Your communication skills will be top notch in February, as Mercury gets busy in your sign after the 11th! This is a brilliant time for socialising, holding important discussions or meetings, and dealing with paperwork of all kinds. Your mind will be sharp now and you will need lots of mental stimulation to keep you occupied. Mercury and Venus form a sextile after the 15th which is very beneficial for planning social activities and making new friends or societies. This aspect doesn’t reach perfection, however, as Mercury turns retrograde in early March, therefore plans you make with your new pals may not come to fruition as you hoped. Mercury also conjuncts imaginative Neptune between the 18th and 27th, a highly innovative combination of energies which is fabulous for all kinds of creative expression, particularly writing, working with film and the media, and spiritual counselling. You won’t be feeling overly practical during this transit, and it’s important that you touch base with reality at some point.
As the Sun goes dark in your house of secrets for the first eighteen days of the month, a strong urge to spend some alone time is likely. This is all about working out where you have come since your last birthday, as you prepare for your solar return at the month end. You won’t be at your most receptive to those who need you, as some degree of self-absorption is inevitable during reflective transits such as these. Minor health ailments could be more prevalent, and an enhanced interest in psychic matters is likely. The new Moon of the 4th provides a wonderful opportunity to try a new meditation or relaxation technique, you may also be drawn back to a religious or spiritual group at this time, which you have not been connected to for a while. Searching for meaning in life is, in a nutshell, the lesson to be learned here!
Venus conjuncts the south node in your house of friendships during the last week of February, an aspect which could cause disagreements in your world of friends. The south node takes us back to patterns of behaviour which we have repeated many times in our relationships, hence it may be an idea here to take a step back and really look at your interactions and their underlying motivations. Ask yourself what you want to get of these arguments, and whether to simply walk away might put you in a better place emotionally. The Sun’s sextile with Mars between the 19th of February and 12th of March is excellent for letting people know what you think, and drawing their attention to your needs and feelings. If your friends don’t like it, they’re not your friends!
The full Moon of the 19th illuminates relationships, and is sure to show you exactly where you’re going wrong if things aren’t too healthy here at the moment! Full Moons bring the lunar cycle to a head, hence challenging situations tend to reach a climactic point at these times, and need to be tackled. If a particular partnership has been troubling you, events may arise now which will lead you to make a choice, once and for all. But the full Moon also lights the path to show you a way forward, therefore your choices are by no means limited, there are many solutions and it’s up to you to choose the one that best fits. The Moon’s trine with Mars will help you, as your assertive, dynamic approach pushes you to take the lead in deciding whether a love relationship has run its course. Have a lovely February!
