Monday January 26th - Sunday February 1st
Say you, say me. This Monday, January 26, a quarter moon in Taurus and your expressive third house helps you find the words you’ve been fumbling for. Grab that pen or keyboard! You’ll want to capture these thoughts as they may very well contain seeds of genius. If you’ve hit a wall with a writing project, this lunar surge will help you push through; even a half hour of dedicated journaling can help you start the week off on a tuned-in, peaceful note. Platonic partnerships, such as friendships and coworker collaborations, are the focus of this quarter moon. Has the flow of give and take become a little lopsided? Spend Monday restoring equilibrium. If you’ve been slacking, step up to the plate and make amends. Have you been letting others dump their duties into your lap? Stop the enabling, Pisces, and hold them accountable for pulling their weight. The way you share with people should feel like a win-win for both parties. If it doesn’t, you might need to find a third party to help with the tasks neither of you can handle. Think before you speak on Monday too. This harmonious quarter moon falls into your communication quarters, cautioning you against blurting out any unfiltered monologues. Talk through your speech with a levelheaded third party. What is the point you are trying to get across? Is there a clear request you want to make — one that’s more logical than emotional? Practice makes perfect when it comes to delivering your lines and getting results.
Monday’s complexity is quickly replaced by a feverish burst of mojo. On Tuesday, love planet Venus sashays into Pisces until February 20, joining her cosmic companion Mars there. These two don’t pair up all that often, so consider it a double-bonus since you’ll be hosting them both in your sign for the next three weeks! Who has time to wait for Cupid? Not you, Pisces! Your Valentine’s era is officially underway. Enjoy all the attention that comes your way, and don’t be afraid to be a bit more, uh, demanding, from your partner. Everyone likes a little challenge, so be a little harder to pin down — not impossibly so, but just enough to create an aura of mystique. It’s not like you’ll need to fake it. With Mars and Venus in your sign, both your creativity and ambition are off the charts. Obsessively pursuing a passion project — and even turning it into a moneymaker — could consume hours of your days. While your magnetism shoots to the moon, don’t rush to lock down a “one and only.” If you’re single, you might prefer to play the field for the next few weeks, enjoying a wide span of suitors a la late signmate Elizabeth Taylor. After all, the marrying kind has his/her benefits, but so does a high-intensity Dionysian fling. There could be one for the books before February 19 — or perhaps the locked pages of your diary. Ooh la la! With your cosmic ruler Neptune meeting Venus at the exact degree of Pisces this Sunday, some bodice-ripping adventures lie ahead. Doff the rose-colored glasses (along with your unmentionables) though. Delusional Neptune and idealistic Venus could almost convince you that a player is really a Prince Charming this weekend. Projecting qualities that don’t exist is a pitfall of the Venus-Neptune pairing, which could also veer to the opposite extreme. Should your suspicious mind be riled up this weekend, take a breath. Get the facts before your react (or fling anyone’s clothes onto the front lawn and block ‘em on Facebook). It might really just be a cousin your amour du jour is hugging so tightly in that photo.
A few storm clouds could blow in this Friday, too, when the Sun and Mercury retrograde conjoin in your murky twelfth house. If you’ve swept some fears or emotions under the rug, look out! Your attempts to be “positive” could backfire, so don’t bother. Take a time out to really deal with the feelings that come up. While you don’t want to vent anger on anyone, you shouldn’t pretend that you’re okay with something that really bothers you on a gut level. If the other party is resistant to change, you might need to close the door on your relationship for a while, in the interest of self-preservation. Are you missing the advice of a mentor? Someone who played Yoda to you in the past could have the very words of wisdom that you need to hear. Reach back in your history for that stellar support.
