Face down those fears about interpersonal connection, Pisces, because it’s time to take some emotional risks on your own behalf. On Tuesday, September 22, the confident Sun blazes into Libra and your eighth house of intimacy and permabonding for four weeks. Regardless of your current relationship status, this annual seductive solar power surge gives you the urge to merge—your bodies, emotions, resources or lives! Unattached Fish will need to be willing to put in the effort, whether that means getting more serious in your search or making it clear to your commitment phobe that you want, need and deserve more than you’re getting! When dating, avoid grilling new people on the first night out, but remember that’s it’s not only acceptable but a wise policy to ask a few open-ended questions about their long-range goals, like where they want to live and whether they want kids. For couples, this annual transit can act like an aphrodisiac in the bedroom, especially if anyone’s libido has been MIA. Do your bit by not getting together with bae when utterly drained or distracted from work. Dress up just for them when you DO have plans, even if you’ve been together for decades. This is the grease that keeps the partnership wheels cranking! But watch for intense emotions like jealousy, obsessiveness and even paranoia to arise. This is the eighth house’s shadow side, the downside to all that passion and intimacy. Don’t yield to its lower vibrations. If those feelings do come up, take it as an opportunity for honest and direct conversations.
On Sunday, messenger Mercury makes its annual trek into Scorpio and your ninth house of truth-telling, expansion and independence. Anything that holds you back or down right now will have no place in your life—and you won’t have any patience for people who say one thing and do another, especially if you’re involved on any interpersonal level. The cosmic communicator will be spending an extra-long time in this zone because of a retrograde from October 13 to November 3, so you’ve got until December 1 to clear the decks of anyone who’s interfering with your quality of life or growth mission. And while you’re at it, learn to be a strong advocate for yourself! If you don’t want to waste your time on gossips or the “all talk and no action” types, become a better gatekeeper! It’s been easy to stay TOO isolated or limited this year, and this Mercury cycle switches things up. Say YES to invitations and opportunities that will widen your horizons and “Sorry, I can’t” to those that clearly won’t.
