The Pisces Prophet: Dec. 14-Feb.14

Soncheree McCampbell, Features Editor

Congratulations! You’ve survived November’s Mercury retrograde. Let’s hope that this next period will be more gracious to you.

On December 20th, Venus will enter Aquarius, where it will stay for 18 ¾ days. Aquarius is the sign of originality, independence, and humanitarianism. Since Venus is the planet that rules romance and pleasure, relationships are expected to have a more unconventional approach. Instead of the standard date night, couples may get the urge to be more whimsical. Go stargaze or participate in volunteer work!
On December 22th, Capricorn season will begin. Capricorns are known to be practical, ambitious, and disciplined. These qualities will intensify when the Moon enters Capricorn on December 26th and when Mercury enters Capricorn for 7.3 days on December 29th. Mercury rules communication and expression, so professional interactions such as talking to authoritative figures or tackling your lifetime goals may seem less daunting during this time period.

The new year will start off strong on January 3rd, when Mars will enter Sagittarius, the sign of optimism, freedom, intellect, and straightforwardness. When encountering the planet associated with agression and action – amongst other things – you may become restless, and have a desire for adventure. This will continue for 57.25 days.

On January13th, Venus will enter Pisces, the sign of imagination, sensitivity and compassion. When encountering the planet of love and bliss, romance will be more dream-like.There will be more of an urge to settle down with a significant other.

On January 16th, Mercury will enter the sign of Aquarius. Original ideas will spring forward. Make sure to jot down your entrepreneurial thoughts because this will only last for 7.3 days!

On January 20th, Aquarius season will begin. Independence and freedom will be the main themes and will intensify on January 24th, when there will be a new moon in Aquarius. New moons symbolize beginnings. When in Aquarius, the ability to detach, network, and “think outside the box” will be stronger.

On February 3rd, Mercury enters Pisces. Logic within conversations will take the backseat while emotions and daydreams will run high. Becoming empathetic listeners will be second nature. It’s important to reflect and give yourself reality checks to avoid calamities!

On February 7th, Venus enters Aries, the sign of energy, courage, confidence, and quick-wittedness. There will be an urge to be in short-term, non-committal relationships. Remember that Venus will only be in this position for 18 ¾ days!

On February 9th, there will be a full moon in Leo, the sign of faithfulness, generosity, open-mindedness, and lovingness. Full moons represent growth, high power, and realizations. When encountering the full moon, you will gain clarity in self-awareness.
