It’s tempting to forget about our troubles and just allow our dreams to replace reality once the Sun shifts into imaginative Pisces. Unrealistic fantasies seem more vivid than ever but we’re not likely to let go of our opinions, even when confronted by romantic visions of perfection. Thankfully, the Moon flies into philosophical Sagittarius, enabling us to step back so we can gain a wider perspective on our lives.
Aries (March 21st – April 19th)
A brief retreat from the front lines for a dose of renewal and recharging is exactly what the doctor ordered. The Sun’s shift into peaceful Pisces illuminates your 12th House of Spirituality, prompting you to escape into your cozy cave for a break from the mundane world. You may think letting go of all your responsibilities is the best way to reconnect with your spiritual center but, truthfully, you don’t need to extinguish your fire completely just to cool off. Thankfully, the promise of adventure will draw you back to reality before you know it.
Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)
The spirit of community warms your heart as you think fondly about your circle of friends. You appreciate being part of such a fun group and you hope to spend more time giving back some of the joy you receive. The compassionate Pisces Sun shines a light on your 11th House of Social Networking for the next four weeks, encouraging you to cultivate stronger bonds of friendship. While it may seem more important than ever to maintain harmony, the high-minded Sagittarius Moon reminds you to keep your eyes open to all possibilities rather than blindly following one path.
Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)
You’re galvanized to move into a period of manifestation where your lofty ambitions become undeniably real. The Sun’s shift into idealistic Pisces puts the spotlight on your 10th House of Profession, inspiring you to visualize exactly where you hope to be in your career. The more you polish your idea of success, the closer you get to making it a reality. Sharing your aspirations with a trusted friend can help prevent you from getting stuck in the dreaming phase. Antoine de Saint-Exupery wrote, “A goal without a plan is just a wish.”
Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd)
You tend to favor the comfort and safety of the familiar, but something stirs your desire to see more of the world now. Whether you decide to travel the globe or just feed your imagination with a captivating learning adventure, the possibilities seem endless. Honestly, it doesn’t matter if your journeys take you outward or inward; you will get even more out of them if you incorporate your findings into your regular routine. Including bits of inspiration in your everyday surroundings keeps you uplifted without feeling like you must escape into fantasy-land to avoid the monotony. Dream globally, act locally.
Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)
You feel a tug on your heartstrings that draws you into a reverie of pure love and trust. The Sun’s move into surreal Pisces brightens your 8th House of Intimacy, urging you to surrender to the kind of connection that seems to transcend ordinary relationships. However, the extravagant Sagittarius Moon reminds you that you don’t need to completely give up your individuality to nurture the soulful link you desire. Paradoxically, dissolving the rules to make room for personal freedom often brings people closer together.
Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd)
Your focus shifts to your closest relationships and how to emotionally connect with the ones near and dear to you. You’re prompted to reevaluate your expectations of love and friendship as the Sun swims into empathetic Pisces and your 7th House of Partnerships. Injecting more sensitivity into your interactions enables you to better consider the feelings of others while attempting to bridge the distance between you. It could seem like the lines are blurred, but staying grounded in your own core beliefs is as important as being open to another person’s point of view. Acknowledging someone’s position need not require self-sacrifice. Respect is a two-way street.
Libra (September 23rd – October 21st)
All the late nights and fun times start to catch up with you and you need to turn your attention to your health. The Sun moves into healing Pisces and your 6th House of Well-Being, inspiring you to reassess the habits that are the building blocks of your normal routine. It’s all too tempting to fly on autopilot and let time slip away when you could be developing patterns to support a more healthful existence. Thankfully, the Moon’s entrance into optimistic Sagittarius introduces a spark of motivation to go along with your resolutions. Move it or lose it.
Scorpio (October 22nd – November 21st)
A new phase is beginning in which your creativity takes the lead. It’s the perfect time for exploring artistic pursuits or reconnecting with a childhood activity that brings you joy. The Sun’s annual four-week glide through mystical Pisces accentuates your 5th House of Self-Expression, provoking you to pour your heart into a passion project. Daydreams may saturate your reality but striking the right balance between work and play will make your recreational time that much more fulfilling.
Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st)
You may opt to stay home more often over the next four weeks as the Sun takes up residence in your 4th House of Domesticity. Reconnecting with your roots provides restorative healing for your heart. Nevertheless, it feels like the only thing that truly matters is getting in touch with the collective. However, the questing Moon in your sign reminds you to celebrate yourself as a piece of the whole without having to merge into oneness and out of reality. Take care of yourself before preaching to others to do the same.
Capricorn (December 22nd – January 19th)
Your drive to achieve often compels you to take control of situations to ensure the best chance at success. However, a turn of the tide inspires you to adopt a more flexible approach. The Sun’s shift into gentle Pisces highlights your 3rd House of Information, putting you in a place to be more receptive to messages rather than only pushing your point forward. Nevertheless, don’t allow this new sensitivity to cloud your judgement when you intuitively know something is wrong. Gathering options before nailing down an action plan is a good change of pace from your usual persistence.
Aquarius (January 20th – February 18th)
Your eclecticism is apparent in the way you dress as you choose to reflect your individuality in most purchases. The Sun makes its entrance into whimsical Pisces and your 2nd House of Material Things, seducing you with the allure of a few unique pieces to add to your collection. If you’re not careful, you might find more creative ways to spend than save, so make sure your acquisitions align not only with your immediate wishes but your long-term goals as well. Keep in mind your self-worth is not defined by what you wear but rather by what’s in your heart.
Pisces (February 19th – March 20th)
Wipe the slate clean and start celebrating your birthday month. The radiant Sun moves into your sign, prompting your annual review of where you’ve been and where you’re going. It’s time to get back in touch with your dreams so you can set ambitious goals. Manage your expectations wisely, since it’s easy to drift through the next four weeks in a haze of possibilities that could only serve to bewilder you if you mistakenly believe you can do them all. Tempering your intuition with some good old-fashioned initiative helps you make the most of a new beginning.
