PISCES / Pisces Rising




By Christine Rakela

In 2020, Jupiter in Capricorn is bringing your future together by expanding the possibilities of what can be attained. Since you have had concerns about where you are headed in life due to Saturn and Pluto’s presence, now with Jupiter in the same sector you can build a foundation of lasting value. This is the time to move forward with the pursuit of your hopes, goals, and dreams. You will experience much success, especially when Jupiter conjoins Pluto at various times in the year. Progress starts after Saturn and Pluto form a conjunction in early January and also aspect Mars adversely, which may cause a temporary set-back. The Full Moon on the 10th is challenging as well. The harder you work, the more you can attain. Uranus going direct brings positive progress in your working environment. The New Moon on the 24th inspires you behind-the-scenes. Mars square Neptune at the end of the month indicates a disappointment or problems with your career. You may need to change your approach to a particular goal.
In February, there are better influences after the Full Moon on the 8th into the 9th. Jupiter in sextile aspect to Neptune the second and third weeks offers support with your future goals and friendships. This could be a nice period to pursue sought-after aims as well as spending time with special friends that maybe you haven’t had time to connect with lately. Mars in sextile aspect to the Sun and Mercury the third and fourth weeks has you using your energy more constructively with personal goals. As Mercury goes retrograde from the February 17th until March 10th you will be reevaluating what’s going on with you. Avoid making important decisions or starting anything new under this influence. Watch out for misunderstandings and mistakes being made.
In March, the favorable conjunction of Jupiter and Pluto accelerates your goals in an excellent direction especially after Mercury goes direct on the 10th. Be aware that there is a difficult Full Moon on the 9th as well. Venus in wonderful trine to Jupiter and Pluto the last week of March only accentuates the terrific opportunities that support your hopes and dreams. Mars and Saturn joining hands into Aquarius the last few days of March into April will be a brief setback. Best to keep a low profile.
The first week of April as Mars squares Uranus causes stress at work and with those you are interacting with, and travel, so watch out for accidents. Fortunately, most of April Venus will be in positive aspect to Mars supporting home improvements, family relations, and financial ventures. The second week of April, Mercury in promising aspect to Jupiter and Pluto help steer you in a good direction with your sought-after goals. Friends could be very helpful. A New Moon and a Sun/Uranus conjunction toward the second half of the April will encourage a better rapport with those around you, travel, especially to new places, and educational goals.
The first week of May, Venus squaring Neptune may find you disappointed with a family member or home situation. This is not the time to redecorate or over-extend yourself personally. The Full Moon on the 7th may be the cause of a communication mix-up. The Sun is positive aspect to Pluto and Jupiter mid-May brings work improvements, social outings, travel, and the pursuit of what’s important to you, your hopes, goals, and dreams. Capitalize upon the opportunities around you. Venus going retrograde on May 13th until June 25th, has you reassessing which way to go with a home project or whether you want to sell your place or move.
This theme is further emphasized in June as the Sun and Venus draw more attention to home and/or family issues that need to be addressed. As Mars favorably aspects Jupiter and Pluto the third week you are motivated to go after set goals and accomplish what you can. Mercury is retrograde from June 18th - July 12th having you revaluate speculative or creative pursuits, leisure ventures, and what’s happening with romance. Avoid making important decisions or starting anything new. Watch out for misunderstandings and mistakes.
In July, almost all month Mars will be in supportive aspect to Venus persuading you to purchase what you need to improve the home environment. However, Mercury retrograde may stall some of your efforts until the 12th. Jupiter in positive aspect to Neptune the second half of July will inspire you toward the pursuit of future goals. Opportunities are around you that steer you in an uplifting direction. Creative aspirations are highlighted and benefit you. Gatherings with friends are to be enjoyed.
After the Full Moon on the 3rd of August, the Sun and Mercury are in excellent aspect to Mars mid-month driving you on the job to get much accomplished. Financial strategies are to be implemented as well for the best results. However, from the 12th until the end of August, Mars in challenging aspect to Pluto and then Saturn brings delays, obstacles, and set-backs with your goals and your future. You may find yourself frustrated, but need to act constructively and work harder to make progress. You may not feel appreciated for what you have to offer. Even friends may not seem to be there now. Money may seem restricted as well. For whatever reason this is a time in your life to get serious and put more effort into your ambitious aims. Gradually they can be realized.
In the first week of September, Mercury and later the Sun trining Pluto and Saturn has you working with others to get a job finished. Partnerships can be helpful in you attaining goals that you have envisioned. Then Mars retrograde in adverse aspect to Saturn late September will be the cause of things slowing down. Work is requiring much more effort and your input is not being recognized. Since friends don’t seem to be available, you are on your own in making your decisions. As money is tight, keep a low profile. Better times are ahead.
During October, with the Full Moon on the 1st an issue may arise with a partnership or your finances. Mars retrograde squaring Pluto may cause some resistance to your agenda coming into the second week. However, Venus in wonderful trine to Uranus and then Jupiter mid-month brings out the best in a personal relationship or partnership. You are feeling optimistic at the pursuit of your hopes, goals, and dreams. Pleasant socializing is thoroughly enjoyed along with leisure life, travel, and creative activities. You have been working so hard and now your ambitions will finally see the light. October 14th until November 3rd Mercury is retrograde so avoid making important decisions, starting anything new, and watch out for misunderstandings.
In November, progress is made after the 3rd as the second week indicates the Sun trining Neptune, which encourages you to pursue your idyllic vision of the future. Jupiter in favorable aspect to the Sun and especially Pluto most of the month promotes networking, distant correspondences, travel, and educational pursuits. Reach out to others and enjoy the response. A wonderful opportunity could evolve that brings an optimistic attitude.
In December, Venus in favorable aspect to Neptune and Jupiter makes social life especially pleasant right in time for the season holidays. Travel may be a delight. The Sun and Mercury in Sagittarius brings good news with your career. You are sporting a good reputation and attracting favors. Jupiter conjoining Saturn in Capricorn mid-month foresees the coming together of your hopes, goals, and dreams. What a way to bring in the holiday cheer!
