Going somewhere? Not that you’re aware of? Hang on a sec, Pisces. On Monday, October 15, meandering Mercury and vogueish Venus share a magic carpet ride through your travel zone, planting the seed for a sweet little getaway. Chances are, you can’t pack a bag and wake up in Paris. But with this starry stimulation, even a quick scenery change will hit the refresh button on your perspective and enhance your mood. If you’re tethered to the office or base camp, do some symbolic acts that will mix things up, like sampling foods at new venues and hanging with a new friend. Getting out of your routine, even for a day, can help you look at situations and problems in a whole new light. This is a good day to just get some travel PLANS in the hopper. If funds are tight, think of good friends or relatives you could visit or find last-minute deals to places that are high on your radar. Attached? Venus retrograde (until November 16) is a perfect time to return to places that have sentimental meaning, like where you had your first kiss or vacation. In lieu of leaving city limits, single Pisces could swoon over a sexy accent that catches your ear at the neighborhood wine bar. Diversify your options and date like the international ambassador of amour that you are!
Tuesday marks the quarter moon in Capricorn, which shines its balancing beams into your eleventh house of teamwork and technology. Are you looking to buddy up with someone on a personal or professional project, perhaps something in the digital realm? This lunation could illuminate capable candidates—but the trick is believing that a perfect collaborator even exists! If you’re involved in a group mission that’s going nowhere fast, take it upon yourself to do a crew review. It could be that one person isn’t up to snuff or their dead weight is slowing others down as they try to compensate for them. You don’t have to play “bad cop.” That’s what head honchos and HR people are for. Just make sure you can point to the problem areas—and ideally have a solution in mind—and then get back to work. Things could change in a flash!
This weekend has your name on it—literally! The moon will be in Pisces both days, handing you the talking stick—and car keys, and credit cards—and granting you cosmic permission to do whatever your heart desires. Start by clearing your schedule of tiresome tasks and social obligations that you never asked for in the first place. What’s likely to make you happiest is a wide-open calendar with just one or two fun plans with your closest BFFs or beloved. If you have some pent-up energy and want to channel it into something, flash back to ideas that got sparked around the August 26 full moon in your sign. Did you get a glimmer of a more fulfilling path…or a creative project that you filed away as “perfect for fall”? Without pushing yourself (and adding stress, which will kill your motivation), take an exploratory step and see if you’re still feeling it. Or, if you want to laze around with a good book or catch up on your Netflix, that’s great, too. Repeat after us, Pisces: It's not selfish to put yourself first!
