Pisces Horoscope for January 2024

Posted on January 1, 2024 by Henry Seltzer of ASTROGRAPH.COM

This is quite a powerful month for you, Pisces, when you are focused on your career and professional life, and yet also questioning certain aspects there. Mercury stations to direct motion on the evening of the 1st, but is still in its retrograde shadow for three more weeks, when you are likely to continue meditating on where you are heading, career-wise, and also on the alignment between your most sincere principles and what you do out in the world. The Capricorn New Moon of January 11th makes for another stage in this journey toward better integration of all your parts, when you are especially aware of future life directions and intention. On the 20th, another important turning point in this monthly cycle, Mercury escapes its retrograde shadow, while Pluto enters Aquarius and there conjuncts the Sun in your sector of unconscious process. The Leo Full Moon of the 25th also expands upon this inner work, so that, in particular, you are seeing the connection between your inner moral compass and all that you do and visualize. By making the changes you see fit to make in this January timing, you are essentially fighting for a better world around you that is still in the process of being born.

The month of January opens with positive indications for you, since both Jupiter in Taurus and Mercury in Sagittarius are just stationing to direct motion. This is good news especially for things related to your social participation, your career and your public life. January is colored as well by the recent mid-December Sagittarius New Moon, that landed in your chart sector that relates to your career and professional life, so that outer world progress and ideas there have been on your mind as well. Uranus in Taurus has been featured in recent New Moon configurations, including this recent one, and will have an influence on your communications, which will continue to be varied and a little wild. Your intuition is excellent now, so that information may well come to you by non-logical means.

Because Mercury has recently been moving backward through your Sagittarius or career sector, and is even late on the 1st standing dead still in the sky, you have been mulling over your career path with an eye to determining just where you need to adjust your sails. This process continues into the first three weeks of the current month, as Mercury gradually straightens out, regains its momentum, and recovers its lost ground. Mercury will only escape from its retrograde shadow on January 20th.

Saturn currently transiting in Pisces demands that you calibrate your visionary tendencies with a good dose of patience and a pragmatic mindset if you are to succeed at this time. The good news is that, there are many planets transiting in the sign of Capricorn or your social sector, in January, which may bring you the right people to help you get the job done.

Mars enters Capricorn on the 4th which could bring progressive traction to your collaborations during this first week of the month.

The career and vocational sector of your chart is activated this month and you could be re-assessing directions and goals at this time. On January 7th through the 9th, Mercury in Sagittarius squares Neptune in Pisces for a third time since the end of November potentially highlighting fuzzy thinking or where you may have been building castles in the air. Great accomplishments often begin with a dream but one must also be able to follow through consistently to get the long-lasting results desired. You may need to rethink something around this time but a positive aspect between Mars in Capricorn and Saturn in Pisces from the 8th to the 10th could bring some good news and an actionable plan..

The New Moon in Capricorn arrives on the 11th, signaling the beginning of a fresh cycle in your chart sector relating to your collective values, your social participation and more extensively your dreams and hopes for the future. This New Moon is supported by Uranus in Taurus which may help integrate cutting edge ideas into pre-existing structures in the coming weeks. Although this lunation cycle emphasizes collective values and a desire to change things for the better in your community, the New Moon also forms a square to the Nodal Axis currently transiting in the part of your chart that relates to available resources. There may be some tensions between what you aspire to do versus what you need to do to be financially stable at this time. The secret may lie in balancing your idealistic tendencies with the willingness to meet mundane responsibilities head on.

The week of January 15th should be smoother sailing with Mercury having just ingressed into Capricorn and forming constructive aspects to Saturn in Pisces and Jupiter in Taurus from the 17th to the 19th. Collaborations and communications with others should be easy so use this time to your advantage as things could slow down considerably in the latter half of January.

On January 20th, the Sun forms a conjunction with Pluto in Capricorn before they both enter the sign of Aquarius, continuing their conjunction in the first degree of Aquarius. Aquarius Season could bring these highly transformative influences to your inner work and your comprehension of unconscious process. Your internal moral capacity shifts into high gear as your understanding soars.

The Leo Full Moon culminates on January 25th in the sector of your chart that relates to your health and routines, shining a light on your habits and your well-being. The Full Moon makes a T-square to Jupiter in Taurus, which implies that there is a learning process going on as you try to reconcile disparate parts of yourself. Your investigations might show you where things have gotten excessive or out of balance.

From the 26th to the 28th, Mercury and Mars form a conjunction in Capricorn that trines Uranus as Uranus stations direct in Taurus on the 27th. This is a potent reflection on how far your ideas have come toward manifestation. Unexpected information could surface at this time or you may have a lot more details or logistical things to sort out suddenly. Things could be more busy than anticipated socially and you may be placed in a position of authority or have to make some decisions for a group. Collaborations should feel graceful yet you can expect a lot of back and forth between you and others as the month comes to a close. All and all, the January month has been a good one for your learning curve as you begin to truly navigate 2024.
