We start a new lunar cycle tomorrow with a New Moon in Pisces. We’ll get an extra dose of Piscean energy since Neptune and Venus are right there with the Sun and the Moon. Venus LOVES being in Pisces- it’s their sign of exaltation. Neptune is the modern ruler of Pisces – although I don’t use modern rulerships, I can say that Neptune is very strong in the fish sign- making it’s pull towards escapist, delusional, obscuring tendencies extra potent. The traditional ruler of Pisces- Jupiter- is still in the heady sign of Aquarius.
Jupiter being in the pragmatic, intellectually driven sign of Aquarius, could lead to some ideas being dismissed, (especially if they require change) or the expansive nature of Pisces being stifled. If fear is the thing getting in your way, take a good look at it. Does this fear serve you anymore? Pondering this combination of Pisces’ ruler in a fixed air sign made this quote from Aesop leap to mind- The level of our success is limited only by our imagination and no act of kindness, however small, is ever wasted.
The quote speaks to a couple of things to consider moving forward. If you can dream it and you have the skill and determination to see it through- it’s possible. If you’re feeling lost and directionless, volunteer- help others. This action tends to act like a un-stick mechanism, and usually has the tendency to open us up to different possibilities. At the very least it’s helping the world be a better place- Pisces likes that, and Jupiter in a Saturn ruled sign rewards a sacrifice, especially if it involves work.
What’s notable about the planetary placements at the moment is the lack of cardinal energy, and the lack of fire, and how that impacts are motivation or lack thereof. We have mostly the daydreaming, limitless fish, and the fixed ideas of Aquarius. With the planet of thrust- Mars- in Gemini, we’re in a brainstorming/information gathering time. Make plans, make lists and dream big. Without the get up and go of cardinal propulsion, or the inspiration of fire I predict there will be a lot of great ideas that won’t get off the ground until things start moving into Aries next week, and continue to gain cardinal steam when Venus and Mercury join the Ram’s party. By the next New Moon, we’ll be warmed up and ready to charge ahead.
In the mean time, take care of yourself. xoxo
