Pisces Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Mutable Water. Your ruling planets are Neptune and Jupiter.

You are still on the roller coaster, Pisces, and getting used to the up and down by now, although you'll still be happy to learn that the train is coming into the station. This is a paradoxical time of rethinking priorities and of arriving at new conclusions regarding your life direction but it all takes time. Over the last two weeks of the old year and the first two weeks of the new, you are like a bow pulled to the maximum, ready to let your arrow fly. Then the latter half of January, punctuated by the First Quarter Moon of the 23rd, is flight time. When you do let it go it will involve both your inner and your outer worlds in a new amalgam of meaning.

As the month begins, you are feeling your future calling to you. This month is huge for you, to the point where another world will open up for you before the end of it, and you will feel like you are not even the same person that you were when you started, in a good way. Kicking off the month and year, the New Years Eve eclipse in your sector of creative self-expression presents you with the feeling that you can really accomplish pretty much anything. There has been a long period of many months preceding this one where if you have been doing your homework you have been busy incorporating a strong sense of spiritual integration into your life, and this month is your well-deserved reward for all that heartful effort. The eclipse signals that paradigm shifts and great leaps forward are available now, and that it is your own unique self that they are available to, as you bring all your years of personal evolution to bear on this current moment. The Last Quarter Mon of Thursday, January 7th, is a time of assessment, when you are taking a look at where you have been over the past three weeks of this lunar cycle, and where you might be headed in the next. There could be some moments of tension that arise as you continue to rearrange your priorities and you day-to-day habit patterns. Then the Solar Eclipse and New Moon takes place a week later, late on Thursday evening or early Friday, January 15th, in your sector of group participation and plans for the future. This is the best chance that you will have all year to vision a more productive outcome for yourself. Your wishes are powerful now, and whatever you can conceive you can eventually achieve. This is also a call to service and to more direct involvement with like-minded associates, a potential antidote to feelings of isolation that might have been a factor for you lately as you explore changing realities. Your evolutionary progress toward your true goals, as you imagine them in your deepest levels of intuition, is getting a boost forward to the extent that you are open to receiving it. There is a way that you have hesitated at the brink of progress, weighing the potential deficits against what you want to believe is really possible for you, and this dynamic continues, but with greater confidence on your part in the transformation that could in time be accomplished. The final two week of the month represent the working out of the impulse that comes into being with this mid-month event. In the middle of this latter period you will get an energy jolt from the First Quarter Moon taking place on Thursday, January 7th, accompanied by the entrance of Jupiter into your sign, which is a very Good Thing, granting you the confidence and the grace of the universe to support you in your endeavors. You might be reminded of the Goethe lines, which certainly apply to you right now: "What you can do, or dream you can do, begin it! Boldness has genius, power and magic in it."
