Sale Ends January 31st at Midnight.
Another amazing month is coming toward you, Pisces, in an exciting and changeful time. The first half brings you to greater awareness of the role that you intend to play in articulating the truth of your beliefs and acting upon them out in the world. The eclipses of January emphasize the presence of your ruler, Neptune, in your first, or identity, sector. As chart ruler, strongly placed Neptune implies that you are growing internally, coming into yourself in a big way, and have a solid confidence in yourself that will take you far. Neptune is also a dreamy, numinous archetype on its own! This is therefore additionally a time for you of great confusion, illusion, and faith in the unknown and unseeable truth behind and beyond the material plane. You have an essentially spiritual thrust to all your planning now, including your career choices. As you proceed to act upon your deepest values, only the path with heart will in fact be truly satisfying to you.
The following was written by this month's guest columnist Adam Elenbaas of The Nightlight Astrology School
Happy New Year, Pisces!
This month features two eclipses, one in Leo and one in Capricorn, plus a long lineup of transits through Capricorn, corresponding to your eleventh house of friendships, group affiliations and future plans. This begins with a Sun/Saturn conjunction in Capricorn on January 1st, followed by a powerful Solar Eclipse in Capricorn on January 5th, that will bring your concept of your pathway forward to the fore. Later on, a Sun/Pluto conjunction takes place, also in Capricorn on January 10th, and finally there is a square from Mars in Aries to Saturn in Capricorn on January 21st.
With eclipses set to roll through your eleventh house for the next year, and with Saturn moving into a conjunction with Pluto in your eleventh house by the winter of 2020, you are going to be dealing with some very intense energies in this area of your chart for a while to come. The basic nature of the eleventh house is that it connects us to friends and allies, groups and sometimes even benefactors who share similar ambitions, dreams, or goals. The eleventh house is sometimes confused as a “humanitarian” house, but it’s really about social connections and how they shape or share in our highest social, and often professional ambitions in life. Our ambitions may or may not be humanitarian or spiritual. Often enough they are about power, gain, and greed or personal gain. We are all human, after all! In the next year, starting with the powerful lineup of Capricorn transits happening this month, you are therefore exploring your long-term dreams and goals, which are the highest and best dreams and goals' Along with this you are asking yourself who your most helpful friends or colleagues are and what constitutes healthy vs. unhealthy professional or social compromise' If you are willing to be incredibly honest with yourself about your motivations and desires, to look within and ask yourself if your motivations and desires are the right ones, then these transits will likely usher new people into your life that will be truly beneficial for you!
On January 8th, Mercury in Capricorn will square Mars in Aries in your second house of money and resources, and then between January 12th and 13th, Mercury will conjoin Saturn in Capricorn. During this time, you will be trying to make some difficult choices about the prioritization of your time, money, energy, and resources. This is potentially a more reactive and volatile period for you mentally and emotionally, so take your time with making any big decisions. There is an excellent opportunity to get to the bottom of things, or to get clear about your bottom line, but you should pick and choose your words very carefully as you could easily enter unnecessary conflicts with friends or allies, as well.
On January 13th, just as the Sun and Moon come into the square alignment of the First Quarter Moon, Jupiter in Sagittarius in your tenth house of career will square Neptune in Pisces in your home sign. Venus in Sagittarius is also perfecting a trine to Mars in Aries in your second house of money and resources on January 17th. Therefore, 2019 is going to be a big year of personal and professional advancement for you, thanks to Jupiter’s long sojourn through your tenth house, but also thanks in large part to it’s square of Neptune in your home sign. This combination brings what is most unique about you into the public eye, or it has the potential to bring your talents and abilities to the forefront in your professional life or in the eyes of those above you (or fellow experts, etc.). Perhaps the only downside of this transit is that with increased attention, success, or visibility, there may sometimes come confusion about who we are and what we really value. Success is sometimes like a funhouse mirror; it can be exciting, but it can also distort our true nature. If you stay close to your essence, and true to your character, this transit promises the growth of your character and confidence, as well as expansive professional development.
On the late evening of January 20th, a Lunar Eclipse falls in the sign of Leo in your sixth house of labor, sickness, and service, the last of a long series of eclipses in Leo. This indicates that you’ve been working hard and possibly laboring through a period of hardships over the past year and a half. Sixth house hardships help us to develop both empathy and a service attitude, but they are also draining and sometimes even hard on our physical health. This eclipse suggests that you are ready to reap what has been sown of your hard work, or of the trials and challenges of the past year and a half.
Then, on January 22nd, Venus will conjoin Jupiter in Sagittarius in your tenth house, bringing auspiciousness, growth, beauty, and opportunity into your career house to close out the month. You may also find that you are making beneficial social connections at this time, or that you are being invited into the company of powerful people. Just remember to stay true to who you are; this is what will always bring you the most success and happiness!

The Sun represents the Self, one's way of being in the world. It can represent, on different levels, both the ego and the higher Self or soul purpose. It rules Leo and is exalted in Aries. The Sun is the most important 'planet' in the chart and symbolizes one's will and sense of vitality. When the Sun is afflicted (poorly placed or poorly aspected) it could indicate problems with the father, or male role model. The Sun energizes your entire chart, and planets in close relationship to the Sun (by planetary aspect) are emphasized in your personality. If your Sun is prominent in your chart, you will exhibit great power to do and to be.
The Moon represents the personal self, the feelings and the unconscious. It is a reflection of the true self, represented by the Sun. The Moon also stands for security and instinctual or habitual patterns, as well as the ability to relate to others, and to be nurturing to others. The Moon rules Cancer and is exalted in Taurus. It is often contrasted with the Sun as the female receptive principle versus the masculine or positive principle. The Moon represents the feminine and nurturing part of oneself. In a male chart, the Moon represents the feminine within, or the 'anima' and also indicates the type of partner you will attract. The Moon also represents an attunement from the past, which operates at an instinctive or habitual level in your present life.
Mercury represents the mind and intellect, and rules Gemini, sign of duality also Virgo, and has its exaltation in Aquarius. Mercury is an airy planet, associated with all forms of communication and the in-flow and out-flow of intelligence. Its position indicates how your mental function will be expressed, and where techniques and skills are available to you.
Venus is the planet of love and relationship. Venus is in-taking, rather than out-going (as represented by Mars), and rules the signs Libra and Taurus. Venus has its exaltation in Pisces, and is associated with aesthetics, beauty, refinement and romance. Its position in the chart indicates the area in which the give and take of love, affection and sensual pleasure will be expressed.
Mars is the planet of outward activity and animal passion. It rules Aries and is exalted in Capricorn. This fiery planet is masculine in action, versus softer more receptive Venus. When strong in the chart it can indicate a volatile temper, and also great courage. Its position indicates how your personality will assert itself, and what modes of activity will stimulate your physical energies.
Jupiter is the planet of faith, positivism and optimism. It rules Sagittarius and is exalted in Cancer. Jupiter represents the principle of expansion, versus contraction (as represented by Saturn) and the aspirations of the higher self. Its position in the chart indicates how your faith will be expressed, and what modes of activity will stimulate self-confidence.
Saturn is the planet of limitation and contraction, and the trials of life experience. This includes disciplive, punctuality, and the conservation of material resources. Saturn rules Capricorn and is exalted in Libra, and is limited and material, versus unlimited faith (as represented by Jupiter). It indicates areas where the personality will be restricted by fears and lack of confidence, and also areas which are important to be worked on in this lifetime.
Uranus is the planet of freedom and revolutionary vision, the urge for change and the ability to visualize new possibilities. Uranus rules Aquarius, and is exalted in Scorpio. It is also associated with mental studies, electricity and astrology. Its position indicates the arena of originality and freedom from conventional thinking in your life.
Neptune represents the universal ocean of oneness with all beings. It is thus highly compassionate, also idealistic, imaginative and self login or even self undoing, and can be associated with drugs or media, as fantasy expressions. Neptune rules Pisces, and finds its exaltation in Cancer. Its position indicates where there may be confusion and also great creativity in poetic or musical fields. Neptune has been called the higher octave of Venus.
Pluto is a force for change that can be destructive in its power. Pluto rules Scorpio, and is exalted in Leo. Pluto is related to will, and intense passion, and has a reputation for ruthlessness. As god of the underworld Pluto brings the deepest compulsions into the light. Its position indicates areas of life that must ultimately become transformed as part of the soul's evolution.
Chiron is a small planet, or 'planetoid' that was only discovered in 1977, and which has already shown itself to be quite powerful in an individual's chart. Occupying an eccentric orbit between Saturn and Uranus, and named for the centaur physician of Greek myth who taught ancient wisdom to mankind, Chiron represents the archetype of the "Wounded Healer" and is associated with shamanism and going within to heal oneself. Its discovery is synchronous with the rise of the holistic health movement. Chiron's position in the chart reveals where one has been wounded, and where also there is the opportunity for discovering healing from within and sharing this discovery with other people, since from our wounds arises our compassion for the suffering of others. The position of Chiron, by house and sign, can also show where we have talent and access to ancient wisdom, as well as where we may depart from the mainstream in service to a higher practicality. Those with prominent Chiron are likely to be educators and spiritual healers.
As goddess of the harvest and the natural process of fertility and renewal, Ceres represents the process of nurturing and motherhood in an individual chart, and has been attributed to the sign Cancer as a co-ruler with the Moon, as well as to the signs of Taurus, Scorpio and Virgo.
The astrology of the asteroid Pallas indicates the creative use of the mental faculty in combination with ageless wisdom, and is also involved with the arts, especially the plastic arts such as sculpture and pottery, and with medicinal remedies.
The astrology of Juno indicates partnering energy of intimate relationships, as in the more modern issues of where the boundaries are with another person, how much sharing is appropriate, versus holding back, are there issues of bitterness and jealousy, or projected authority and control onto another person, and intimacy needs in general.
In the astrology of Vesta issues of sexuality and completeness unto oneself predominate. Possible associations are the woman (or man) who chooses celibacy, but as a nun or monk takes on a higher purpose than normal family life, also issues of sexuality and who is ultimately served in the process, self or other.
While the lower expression of Eris might manifest as the lust for struggle and violence, there is also a more positive manifestation in the most basic defense of one's rights in standing up to established power, by violence if necessary. By recognizing and coming to terms with this potentially violent factor in ourselves we can grow as humans and become more whole.
The astrology of Haumea seems to be related to love of the natural world and to the fecundity of natural process. This archetype thus signals profound connection to Nature, connection to Source, and a form of natural charisma.
The astrology of Makemake is related to love of the natural world and to the activism associated with defending the environment. This archetype thus signals a profound connection to nature that is quite similar to the archetype of Haumea, his fellow traveler in the Kuiper Belt, with the same astronomical designation and also named from the pantheon of indigenous gods and goddesses.
The Part of Fortune (from the Latin Pars Fortuna) is the only Arabian astrology part still commonly used in modern astrology. It indicates an area of life that is a fortunate one for the native. The house in which the Part of Fortune is placed indicates an area of your life which is likely to be a successful one for you; an area where the applications of your skill will bear fruit. Its is where you will find good luck and happiness.
The Nodes of the Moon indicate areas of life that are of special concern to you. Also referred to as the dragon's head, The North Node indicates your goals. The placement of the North Node indicates work that needs to be done in your life, or new faculties that need to be developed in the present lifetime.
The Nodes of the Moon indicate areas of life that are of special concern to you. Also known as the dragon's tail, the South Node indicates areas of mastery, often from a previous lifetime.
Aries people tend to be energetic, forceful and outgoing. They are good at getting things done, although they prefer starting to finishing. Like the energy of the first rush of spring, they move into the world in a headstrong, pioneering way. Aries people are likely to rush into things before reflecting, and may also be impatient or unwilling to sit back and allow events to mature.
Taureans revel in the pleasures of life. They crave the security and comfort of relaxing in the warmth of their home environment. They value the senses and the enjoyment of material things. Taureans are likely to work hard to make their home an attractive one. They also have the makings of a healer and have a large capacity for kindness.
Gemini is the sign associated with communication, logical thought processes (based on duality) and the conscious mind. Gemini people tend to be airy and intellectual, glib of tongue and curious about life and other people. They can experience two sides of things at the same time, and may tend to be flighty.
Cancerians are nurturing and protective of others. Their ruling planet is the Moon, and they tend to be moody, with constantly changing emotions. Cancerians are also likely to be security-conscious and highly value their home life. They may appear passive, and tend to rely on their feelings to make decisions. They are subtle, rather than direct, and are likely to reflect the moods of those around them.
Leos are likely to express themselves in dramatic, creative and assertive ways. They are also likely to enjoy the warmth of the physical Sun. Leos have great energy, courage and honesty. They are likely to be self-confident and maybe even a bit self-indulgent as they expect to be the center of attention, and often are. Leos can be quite determined and usually get their way when they really want to. They also possess great integrity, and are a natural leader.
Virgos love work, service to others and the gathering of the fruits of the material world, as symbolized by the harvest. They are also likely to be a good conversationalist, with wide-ranging knowledge and interesting ideas. They can be analytical and perhaps overly fond of detail, with perfectionist tendencies, and they may miss out on the big picture by concentrating on the micro. It also benefits them to learn the fine line between discrimination and criticism.
Libra is the sign of harmony and relationship. The Sun in Libra is at the time of the Equinox, when day equals night, and similarly Libra strives for balance between polarities. Librans are known for their good taste, elegance and charm. They are seekers of harmony and beauty.
Scorpio is the most intense sign of the Zodiac, and is associated with sexual activity and with the symbolism of death and rebirth. Their emotions run deep. Scorpios have great personal magnetism and great powers of persuasion or even the ability to coerce others.
Sagittarius is an optimistic, positive-thinking sign associated with the quest for freedom from all restriction as well as idealism, religion and philosophy. Sagittarians are direct and forthright, good-natured and affirmative in their outlook.
Capricorn people are ambitious and practical, and are likely to have an excellent sense of social responsibility. They also tend to be conscious of social mores, perhaps to the point of over-concern. Their natural caution allows them to advance slowly and steadily to the top.
Aquarians have a rebellious nature, and are eccentric, spontaneous and original. They are forward thinking and detached, and can seem conservative though they really are not very much so. They are scientifically minded and logical, and confident in manner.
Pisceans are friendly and likable, and yet can be very moody and introspective as well. Pisces is a watery sign, concerned with subtle emotions and secret mystical depths. Pisceans are not entirely at home in this world.
