Pisces the Fishes in 2006
Expanded Horizons, New Frontiers
Jupiter, lord of fortune, favours Pisces with expanded horizons
and new developments in 2006. Study, travel, overseas connections and
legal matters will feature until late November. From there, professional
or career advancements are in the frame. Saturn invites you to
reform your daily routines in accord with the changing demands
of work or healthcare. There may be a new workload or new challenges
with work for some. The midyear sees a major shift or break with
regard to your desires or sense of life direction. You can turn
your life around in some way or another. And, of course, revolutionary
Uranus still urges you towards new frontiers and a new definition
of yourself. Embrace the new and unknown!
Love and Money
Venus the goddess begins in reverse in Aquarius and your solar
twelfth house, moving back to Capricorn on Jan 1st. An uncertain
start or reorientation may mark the beginning of the year in matters
of love or money. You may need to go back over old ground or wait
on events or developments to take their course. You may come among
old friends or associations for a time. You may return to goals
or dreams that you've held in the past. Don't immerse yourself
too deeply though. For some, you may find you're only going back
to discover there's nothing to go back for. For others, you may
renew an old association and begin something again in earnest.
For some, health (yours or someone else's) may delay your plans
or change them. In the overall, it's time to review what you want
from the love and money interests in your life. Go back to the
drawing board. Set yourself to wait for what you want or take
the time to develop new interests or a new direction. Patience
is the key. Partnership issues may resolve themselves if you decide
what you want.
On Jun 22nd, the Lunar Nodes move out of Aries and Libra and
into Pisces and Virgo. This marks an important shift with partnership
matters and close associates. For those in a relationship, there
may be changes in the balance of how things work between you.
This may be for personal or professional reasons and may mark
the end of a cycle in your life together. The balance of independence
or initiative may flow towards you in some way. A partner may
try another path or move into changed circumstances. You may move
in new directions, either from choice or necessity, changing the
way your relationship works. For the singles, there may be someone
new in your life. Their presence, activities or nature may bring
changed conditions with what you do or the way you live. You will
need to come to terms with another style of operation or another
pattern of needs. For both, matters of health or work related
to someone close may affect your life or where you go. Pluto,
god of the underworld, puts tension on the Nodes as they shift.
This tension climaxes in Oct. The changes that come may mark the
end of important cycles. Negotiations, dealings with authority
and matters of joint holdings or monies may be reviewed or changed.
You will move from one era to another in your partnership life.
Home and Family
In the overall, work, health and partnership matters or changes
will all somehow have a big influence on life at home. Work or
health interests or concerns may feature at home. There could
simply be a hectic feel as new projects or operations make their
presence felt. Domestic life could be changed by changes with
partnership. You may be out of an old situation and into a new
one. Or it may simply be the balance of operations between you
shifts in the course of the year. March is abuzz with strong action
or individuals that will change the domestic patterns at speed.
Males, moving or renovations may feature. Some of you may struggle
with city versus country in terms or residence. Others may be
wondering which country! Some of you may go through shifts of
belief or find your beliefs are challenged by the current environment.
You may consider moving as a consequence.
Work and Health
With Chiron the wounded healer in Aquarius, you're at turning
point with your creative or spiritual gifts. Put latent ability
into practice. Develop your intuition and your knowledge by learning
the art of divination with tarot, runes or astrology. Practice
meditation. Engage in healing work, using crystals or essential
oils. Study herbalism, massage or feng shui. Explore! Enroll in
a course. Find a teacher. Develop skills. There is a hidden side
of you that needs to surface in new forms of expression. Paint,
sing, dance or write! Expand your visions. Change your daily practice.
There may be a new or unusual individual in your life to teach
or help you set a new course. You may return to an old teacher
and re-begin your studies, especially early in the year. Watch
for opposition from a hidden source.
Pay attention to your health. If you've been struggling, is
there something beneath the surface you haven't seen that may
be an unrecognized or undiagnosed source of any problems? Look
deep. You have hidden spiritual and creative wealth. Find out
how to use it and you may provide a solution for any health issues
that trouble you. Health conditions are emphasized with Saturn
in Leo, as he hovers between an opposition to Neptune and one
to Chiron throughout the course of the year. Daily routines and
general healthcare will need attention. You may have to deal with
changed health conditions or practices. Don't minimize the impact
or import of health needs by ignoring them or playing them down.
Matters related to the heart or back are emphasized. Be specific,
practical and immediate in your effort to put things right. Put
new regimes of healthcare or self-nurture in place when necessary.
If you need to change what you do because of health requirements
then do so. Be active and dynamic with health regimes.
Some of you will have increased workload or a new line of work.
This may see you operating in a more solitary capacity than usual.
Some of you may undertake a new creative project while others
will go into business. Either way, time and effort in quantity
will be required for what you're doing. It will be important to
balance the demands of work with changed healthcare requirements.
Don't focus on work at the expense of health. For some, work routines
will need to be structured while for others there will be a higher
organizational content in what you do. Take charge of what goes
on. Dealings with older people or those in authority may be part
and parcel of the daily routine.
With Jupiter in Scorpio, study, overseas travel and a broader
more philosophical view, will bring you to new horizons, literal
and metaphorical. Some will cross the frontiers of the mind by
expanding knowledge and skills. This may be for a career change
or simply out of general interest. Others will attend the 'university
of life', opening to a wider picture. There may be developing
associations or companionship with people of status, of other
cultures and those of academic standing. Issues with in-laws or
of a legal nature may feature. You can develop a better 'all round'
sense of the world you live in as a result of this transit.
Jupiter in Scorpio creates an intense desire to understand things
at a deeper level. You may travel to find powerful or life-changing
experiences. You may have to go somewhere to get somewhere. You
will come by opportunities for growth or expansion through fortunate
or potent connections with talented, exotic or interesting people.
Someone with powerful beliefs or insight will teach you what you
need to know. The Grand Cross in fixed signs that begins the year
tells us this may not at first seem to be what you want to know.
Thus, what you learn may be at odds with your background of attitudes
or practices. You may have to transform your belief system. You
will alter daily life with the application of new skills or practices.
On Nov 23rd, Jupiter moves to Sagittarius, shifting attention
to matters of career and dealings with authority or authority
figures. Promotion or opportunity for advancement will come for
some. Others will make fortunate connections with people of status
or authority, ones that can assist with work or career. You may
have dealings with people that have power, knowledge or position.
There may be a wide variety of cultural influences that come with
Mercury moves into retrograde (reverse) motion three times a
year for about three weeks each time. This phase heralds a time
of confusion and misunderstandings that can affect arrangements,
travel, transport, appliances, machinery and communications. The
breakdowns that occur are a function of neglect, inattention,
simple misunderstandings or component failure. They will often
bring to the fore the very contingency we should have planned
for and didn't. When the retrograde phase occurs, watch out for
such possibilities as well as putting off major decision-making
or the signing of crucial documents and agreements. We tend to
miss things while Mercury is in reverse motion and then have to
come back and do them again. A process of review in the retrograde
phase can efficiently show where problems might lie and help us
with damage control or the mending of things. Double check arrangements
at these times! What you think you've said and what others have
understood will often prove to be two different things.
Mercury turns retrograde in Pisces on Mar 3rd, squaring Pluto,
underworld lord, as he does so. Take time to review who you are
and where you're going. Watch communication, as it could be prone
to confusion or misunderstanding. Watch that you don't bump into
the furniture either. Minor accidents might trouble you. There
may be a break in professional dealings or with career matters.
You may be in a state of confusion or disagreement with an authority
figure or authoritative body. Negotiate a position. Talk things
over. This cycle ends on Mar 26th.
Mercury turns retrograde in Leo on Jul 5th, in range of a T-square
with Jupiter, Saturn and Chiron. There may be communication problems
at work or with co-workers. Vehicles or appliances at work may
be unreliable. A work matter may need review. You may have to
cover old ground to get something done or redone. An old project
or idea may be revived. Health may trouble. Minor matters may
disrupt daily routines or working patterns. Changes with work
or health may come from an unexpected quarter. Mercury moves back
to Cancer on Jul 10th, furthering the effects into romantic matters,
lifestyle activities or children. This cycle ends on Jul 30th.
Mercury turns retrograde in Scorpio on Oct 28th, in a conjunction
with Jupiter. There may be delay or changes with travel plans
or schedules. You may experience interruption or change with study
or legal matters. There may be news or developments overseas that
effect your plans. The big picture of what you want to do may
change because of changed circumstances. There may be difficult
dealings with in-laws or those involved with academic pursuits
or the law. You may review your own beliefs. The events in this
period may lead to a significant change in your belief system.
The cycle ends on Nov 18th.
Your New Moon comes on Feb 28th as the lights (Sun & Moon)
join with revolutionary Uranus, just before Mercury the messenger
moves into reverse. You may find stunning or startling changes
come, as your circumstances or your plans are turned around. There
may be unexpected developments that will alter how you respond
and where you go. You may go through something of a personal change
as you are moved to put your life on a different track. Hold off
decisions. Consider a changing situation. Let things unfold.
Your Full Moon comes on Sep 7th, bringing a Lunar Eclipse. There
may be changes with a partner or close associate. You may find
yourself out of kilter or overreacting. You may respond to a situation
or an individual in an unusual or uncharacteristic manner. You
may suddenly decide not to continue an association or personal
situation. A cycle with a partner or close associate may be interrupted
or end in dramatic circumstances. You may move from one association
Eclipses of both the Sun and the Moon often indicate the end
of a cycle or a significant change in the direction or pattern
of the affairs governed by the house in which the eclipse falls.
Eclipses of the Sun may affect work, direction and relations with
people in authority. Eclipses of the Moon may affect matters of
home, family and emotions as well as relations with women and
children. Both may affect your health.
Mar 14th brings a Lunar Eclipse with the Full Moon in Virgo.
There may be a change or an ending with a partner or close associate.
This may be an end between you or it may be that a change in the
life of someone close will affect your association. As tension
with Pluto is involved, this may come with a sense of finality.
Mar 29th brings a Solar Eclipse at the New Moon in Aries. You
may have to make an adjustment or a change with finances or the
budget due to a changed situation. There may be a change with
income or expenditure or both, brought about by delay, interruption
or an end of some kind. An end with a financial situation may
open a hidden door.
Sep 22nd brings a Solar Eclipse with the New Moon in Virgo.
