February 18 – March19
A s you may be aware, as a Pisces, you’re a bit of a visionary. Of course, you don’t think of yourself this way because to you this visionary perspective, this ability to see past the limitations that others perceive, is natural.
You’ve been this way for your entire life. It’s just that when you are, for example, talking to somebody about how a particular situation could work or, perhaps, about the potential of a particular individual, you realise that you can see – you can ‘envision’ – that potential far better than others.
During 2014, however, you’ll be relying less on that vision and far more on the practical side of arrangements. In fact, with the planet of focus, Mars, in one of the most practical portions of your chart, having moved there in late December 2012 and remaining there until mid-2014, you’ll be thinking about how you use your resources. And, more than that, because this emphasises joint interests, you’ll be talking to others about such matters.
Here it’s important to realise that when you recognise potential, others may not. And where you spot promise in certain individuals, those you’re dealing with, equally, may be less convinced. Rather than waste time trying to win those who have doubts over to your way of thinking, set aside those ideas for the time being and focus on practicalities, at least during the first half of the year.
Then, when Mars moves into one of the most expansive parts of your chart, joining the practical Saturn there, in late July of 2014, and you begin to focus more on new activities, you’ll be able to take what you’ve learned about those practical matters and those new ideas and work together with others. And, even more importantly, when Mars moves into the crucial mid-heaven angle of your chart, as it does in the middle of September next year for a stay of about six weeks, here, too, you’ll be ready to take action.
If there’s a single theme for you for this year, therefore, it’s ‘practicality and patience’. Those practicalities will dominate the first half of the year, meaning that you need to be patient about certain ideas or ventures that are exciting to you, or dear to your heart. Others may not understand or, equally, you may need to work hard to convince them to explore these. Not only that, with Saturn, the planet of focus, positioned in the most expansive part of your chart all year, departing it only at the very end of 2014, and with the expansive Jupiter forming a series of brilliant aspects to it, both last year and in late May 2014, what you stumble upon, what you hear about or simple sheer good fortune could bring something beyond anything you could imagine possible.
This doesn’t just have to do with life’s practicalities, it has to do with who and what you most enjoy in life as well. It could mean that you run into somebody who touches you, who lifts your spirits or introduces you to something that’s rewarding, an activity that brings you joy, an endeavour that lifts your spirits or, quite possibly, is profitable.
But, equally, this is a time to balance those practicalities, especially those you’ll be focusing on during the first half of the year, with those joys.
During February, you’ll find that even unexpected errors seem to add something amazing to your life. The trick is to be open to everything and to explore every option.
Equally, recognise that as exciting as some arrangements are, they may not last long. Do something out of character and give things a go, but do it in a way that’s a little more relaxed than your usual intense focus on perfection. This will allow you to try out more things and to meet more people. It will also allow you to make the best of a year that will introduce you to many exciting activities. But, most of all, it will introduce you to people who you’ll find rewarding – and in the future as well.
