week of February 28-March 7 2015
We may have asked you this before, but do you remember Peter Perfect and Penelope Pitstop? They emerge from the “mutable-water” mists of Pisces as modern alliterative archetypes of the Zodiac’s Fish. In true Piscean paradox, the so-called shadow sides of people born under this sign are characterized as being pristinely flawless, if not prissy, caricatures. Planet Neptune, named for the great god of the sea, rules Pisces. Its energy is that of dissolution. And one way in which it manifests, or is, rather, personified, by Pisces people, is in their ability to wash away aspects of their own human condition-ing, which they view as an impediment to whom they believe themselves to be. (I Believe is the sign’s motto). An overactivation of this mechanism in Pisces men, in particular, can result in a Peter Perfect syndrome whereby Fish males adopt slash remove such impediments to a sort of Richie Cunningham goody-goodyness; or, in extreme cases, get stuck in more Felix Unger-style neurosis-sy displays of fastidiousness. Being proper, even putting on aristocratic airs, can be a hallmark of the Pisces Ken Doll, any anatomical incorrectness not withstanding. And so we find the lock-jaw likes of Pisces David Niven, Tony Randall, Rex Harrison, Jim Backus, Kelsey Grammer, Kyle MacLachlan, Mitt Romney, French Stewart and Rob Lowe along with such picture perfect personalities as John Barrowman, James Van Der Beek, Ron Howard, Sidney Poitier, Robert Sean Leonard, Tim Daly, Chris Martin, Freddie Prinze, Jr., Chris Klein, Barry Bostwick, Tommy Tune, Peter Graves, Michael Bolton, Josh Groban, Harry Belafonte, “Ken Carson” and, of course, Mr. (Fred) Rogers.
You receive encouraging news, now, as the Sun conjuncts healing Chiron—and there’s no need to dread some other shoe dropping, either. Life meets you half way, materializing hopes and wishes. You now negotiate a new design-for-living, wearing many hats. And Thursday’s Full Moon illuminates the fact that you can have it all. Resist any number crunching—it actually limits abundance. What if…is no way to begin a sentence. Just imagine…is more like. Karmic retribution is in full swing: this is more good news, no?
With Thursday’s Full Moon, and Jupiter trining Uranus, Venus and Mars, you accept the notion that you descend from a long line of creative, intellectual mavericks. And you come to see that being out on a limb—artistically, academically, entrepreneurially— is now the safest place to be. Far from maddening mediocrity, you nurture a niche that allows for singular expression while tapping you into fresh revenue streams. Feel the link between burningest ambitions and a bubbling source of spiritual inspiration. And work it.
You feel more at ease, now, with life’s ephemera, acing any psychological tests placed before you. As Mars trines Saturn, family may converge. Surely, ancient roles are being played out (pun intended); but, try as they might, loved ones can’t push your buttons. Right? A solo vocation beckons, one that allows you to make an enduring mark. You percolate where you’d once procrastinated. Funds ease as you prize freedom over possessions. Thursday’s Full Moon will allay all communication on the home front.
You launch a comprehensive plan in service of personal evolution, as both a creative and a creature of love. Mercury opposing Jupiter blesses you with the ability to carve out professional inroads and to experience a fine romance, free of clingy dysfunction. But you must blast your way out of career cul de sacs, and challenge yourself to be with those who share your idea of commitment. A crony seems to be giving you the boot; or maybe it’s just the kick in the caboose you need to learn that friendship is a true gift not a given.
You provide your brain a rest, now, settling deeper into your body; and the conjunct of the Sun and Chiron lends teeth to efforts to stick to any kind of wellness program. It is key to be less focused on making alterations and more so on appreciating the journey of doing right by health and happiness. If debating whether to kick a questionable habit, we offer a resounding: Yes. Pluto square Mars amps powers of elimination. The removal of excesses is vividly more beneficial than usual, as evidenced by increased loving interest.
Mercury opposed Jupiter sees you plotting next major moves. You should also recharge your batteries but, as this looks unlikely, at least pace yourself, easing, not diving, into obligations. Treat them as meditations or exercise. Instincts are sharp as regards new faces on the scene. You’re tempted to censure people for mercenary maneuvers, but resist and rise above. Be thankful you’re more conscious about relationships than the next d-bag. Yes, you’re self-concerned; but at least you don’t tax others with your private-life drama, baby.
You’re of a mind to something fresh, but now is first about retooling existing plans, products and projects, doing what you already do, louder and prouder. So don’t throw in the creative towel—audience is on the horizon. With the Full Moon, Thursday, you march forward with more objectivity about yourself. Be not concerned with what your actions mean or how you’re seen. Trust: Even if the thing you most want to do is something you feel you’re bad at, then get out there and deliver the most vividly horrific display you can.
You wax uncharacteristically philosophical, now, transforming acquired street smarts into sustainable wisdom. With Pluto square Venus and Mars, others may also turn to you for guidance. Flash: you can be a go-to guru while maintaining emotional detachment. Though you brim with genius notions, you mustn’t waste the grace—record all thoughts. You may not get to some big ideas for eons, but trust that they’ll keep. The trick is not to be distracted from pursuing most pressing ones. Forgiveness is the only absolute power.
Mercury opposed Jupiter has the obvious effect of challenging you to network your way to new intellectual, academic, philosophical or artistic heights. Stay attuned to sign-posts pointing to new inroads of opportunity. Freedom stems from maintaining a me-first attitude—don’t be emotionally blackmailed into anything that doesn’t sit right. False prophets have a plethora of opinions on what you should/not do. Silence! Make your own decisions. Keep goals in mind and don’t pooh pooh cash-making gigs that get you there.
You’ve hurricanes raging inside you as Saturn trines Mars. Healthiest detachment from people, places and things must be maintained. It can feel like the opposite is true but: nothing is personal. You’ll lose if you fight affronts with brash retorts. Word all business plans or directives carefully, artfully. It can seem like voices are speaking through you; and we won’t dismiss spiritual assists. You’ve the strength, now, to curb consumption and to embrace any asceticism your soul desires. When you feel like retaliating…love more.
We adore a positive spin as much as the next mystics; but, leading to Thursday’s Full Moon, you must admit that there is inequality in your midst. So fight the power of oppression and Plutocracy. Yours are not opinions to be kept to yourself, but wise words for instigating swift and sweeping change. Be most wary of those putting the sick in sycophant. Such hiney-smoochers may be trying to put you off the scent of taking advantage of your connections. Shut it down. Ease on down the road to meditative calm.
Efforts you put out there this week are met with great enthusiasm. With the Sun conjunct Neptune, leading to Thursday’s Full Moon, your scope expands in response to career or creative schmoozing. Karmically, too, you get an instant return on goodly investments. What you focus upon will magnetize. So if you fixate on any lacking attention, you may be undervalued; if you appreciate your own unique asset, you best ready yourself for the limelight. See life as a lotus unfolding: fully expressive, expansive and in no way linear.
