Power down, Pisces. It's your official hibernation season until February 18, and a well-timed one at that. With the Sun slinking through Aquarius and your restful, healing twelfth house, you're at your most reflective now. For you, the twelfth sign of the zodiac, this is your native turf. And while dragging yourself out of bed could be an epic feat some days, your imagination and intuition are at peak performance levels. Lead with your right brain and devote the first three weeks of February to as much creativity and rejuvenation as you possibly can.
The February 4 Aquarius new moon is an ideal day to start an artistic or spiritual project. If you haven't launched that daily meditation practice or kept your New Year's resolution to journal every morning, now's the time. Most Pisces never met a vision board they didn't like. Turn on your favorite playlist, pour some wine (or brew a pot of tea) and let the manifesting begin!
You could make an event out of it because on February 5, the Chinese Lunar New Year begins. Say goodbye to the territorial and guarded Dog and welcome the communal Earth Pig! For the next year, prioritizing pleasure is the key—and most Pisces don't need any extra prodding for that. Whether you're working hard or planning the party of the century, the "more is the merrier" Pig will help lighten your load by making it a fun team effort. Just keep tabs on your budget since the decadence can be a drain if you're not careful. (Oops, you overspent again!)
Another reason to watch your wallet? From January 1 to February 14, energizer Mars making its biannual blaze through Aries and your finance-focused second house, which could burn up funds. While there might be some stressful expenses, Mars in Aries also ramps up your earning potential. Stressed about money? Sometimes necessity is the mother of invention.
Speaking of novelty, innovative Uranus is also in Aries until March 6, bringing a wave of originality to your work and money zone. When Mars and Uranus team up in a rare conjunction (meeting) on February 13, an exciting job opportunity could arrive out of the blue. With these two hothead planets conjunct, you'll need to check your stress levels (and temper) at work. Perspective and patience are in short supply during this volatile mashup. Mars and Uranus will never again align like this in your lifetime. Thinking of leaving your job to pursue a radical new path or taking a courageous step? Make a bold move—and don't overthink it!
Valentine's Day, which falls on a Thursday, doesn't exactly scream "romance" this year, Pisces. Not only is the Sun still slogging through Aquarius, but the moon is in Gemini and your homey fourth house. Fleece pajamas and takeout sound a lot more tempting than caviar and couture. On top of that, the moon is locked into a tense T-square with foggy Neptune in your sign and Jupiter in your career zone. It will be hard to get your mind off of work, and you might even be stuck finishing up a deadline today. The good news? In four days, the Sun will enter Pisces, rebooting your energy. There will be a full moon in your relationship house on February 19 (more on that in a bit)—plus the weekend's Cancer moon beams into your fifth house of love. Cupid might be delayed, but better late than never!
Your social life picks up speed from February 14 to March 31, when activator Mars moves into Taurus and your communicative third house. The local scene could become a hotbed of opportunity and fun. Get out and network, mixing business with pleasure. A casual conversation over coffee or craft beer could turn into a meeting of the minds. Although you could feel kindred spirit kismet, don't rush into anything official. Test your synergy on a trial project to make sure your chemistry doesn't turn into a bad explosion. Only time will tell!
On February 18, "wounded healer" Chiron will move into Aries, staying until April 2027. Chiron made a brief pit stop here from April to September 2018, then receded back into Pisces. While Chiron is in Aries, we'll collectively mend old scars around visibility, self-esteem and identity. According to mythology, Chiron was a healer who couldn't heal himself. Under his influence, we transform by helping others overcome struggles that we've dealt with (and may still be muddling through). It's the ultimate act of service, where the giver ends up receiving an unexpected karmic gift.
You won't be sad to see Chiron leave your sign, but if you reflect back on the past few years (he's been weaving in and out of Pisces since 2010), you'll notice undeniable evolution. From your self-image to your presentation to your confidence, you've shed many layers and hopefully become authentically yourself—publicly, too. Now Chiron moves into your second house of money and self-worth. You could become a champion of sustainable spending and lifestyles, teaching others how to reduce their carbon footprint while still living well. Conscious consumerism is Chiron's mission, and you might change how you make (and spend) your money. Helping others gain confidence will also boost yours. When you're giving back or making a difference, feeling good about yourself comes naturally!
These themes won't be entirely new because radical Uranus has been in Aries since 2011, shaking up the status quo in this zone of your chart for years. On March 6, Uranus will permanently exit, passing the transformational baton to Chiron for the next nine years.
That same day, the Sun starts its monthlong visit to Pisces, waking you up from hibernation a month before spring officially begins. Prepare to get pumped about a personal mission or passion project. It's "me time"—and your birthday season—so feel no guilt about putting YOUR agenda first. When the Sun makes its annual "solar return" on your birthday, you get a special chart for the year ahead, which is always worth checking out, especially if you're still trying to figure out where you'll spend the big day.
But don't leap immediately into your solo groove. On February 19, the Virgo full moon—also a potent supermoon—illuminates the opposite point of your chart. With la luna igniting your seventh house of relationships, you could make a prosperous partnership official. A post-Valentine's engagement could be on the radar for some Fish, or a budding connection might advance to the contract phase.
In other cases, you might call off a commitment that's no longer yielding returns. Before you tender your resignation or cut someone off, see if you can't talk things through. With analytical Virgo (the zodiac's fix-it sign) at the helm, you might be able to repair a rift or come to a new agreement that works better for both of you. You never know unless you try.
