Pisces 19th Feb - 20th March
YOUR YEARLY HOROSCOPE 2015
in 2015 and beyond is the presence of Neptune in
Pisces, your Sun sign. Neptune takes approximately 165
years to travel through the 12 signs of the Zodiac. Neptune
has been in Pisces since 2011 and will be there for another 10 years or so. Neptune’s presence in Pisces can be considered a longterm, background influence for all Pisceans. Nevertheless, those Pisceans born in the last week of February will experience Neptune’s influence most strongly in 2015. Those born earlier have already met Neptune on their travels, those Pisces born in March will meet Neptune in the not too distant future. Neptune, like poor ole Pisces to some extent, does not have a great reputation in astrology, but that may be because most zodiac signs find it difficult to deal with Neptune. The water signs: Cancer, Scorpio, and especially Pisces, your Sun sign, have the greatest affinity with Neptune and so Neptune is unlikely to cause as much mischief with you as it sometimes does to other, more skeptically, narrow-minded and rationally inflicted Sun sign individuals.
Why has Neptune got such a bad rap? Partly because what Neptune signifies is not entirely of this world. Neptune is primarily concerned with the world of imagination, alternative reality, fantasy, mysticism and compassion. Do you believe in fairies, elves, angels or flying saucers? Do you have precognitive dreams? Are you guided by your intuition? Do you believe nature is alive? That we’re all little pieces of a holographical world soul? That we’re all connected, that the soul is immortal and we can learn to live together in peace and harmony and that each individual can make a difference? If you answered yes to most of the above, you can experience the best of what Neptune has to offer in what promises to be a life changing and reaffirming planetary transit.
As you can imagine, anyone with both feet planted firmly on solid earth and their head in the sand may experience Neptune as a nebulous, disorienting, and downright spooky. To try to live an authentic life, to be open-minded and concerned for the welfare of others and the earth, is the only insurance policy Neptune endorses. For those few remaining Pisceans still living in flatland, Neptune may bring some strange experiences. While some may be abducted by aliens, it’s more a case of having to reassess their current map of meaning they use to navigate through life.
Since most Pisceans are intuitive and spiritually inclined Neptune offers the potential for a deeper connection with the great beyond, the imaginal realm and the chance to tap into a rich well of inspiration and creativity. Activities that involve creative self-expression, the arts, music, theatre, dance, drama, storytelling, puppetry, fantasy, fashion and alternative reality are avenues in which you find fulfillment and grow and prosper under Neptune’s influence.
Healing, nursing, spiritual and mystical pursuits are favored now but be careful not to rely on a guru to provide all the answers you seek because you may be disappointed, seduced, hoodwinked and taken to the cleaners, and we’re not talking laundry. Do be prepared to follow the trail where your intuition and inspirationally lead you. Desire to escape from the often harsh realities of the world go some way to explain Neptune’s questionable reputation in astrology.
Under Neptune’s influence it’s not advisable to attempt to escape one’s problems, worries or commitments through the use of alcohol, pharmaceutical or recreational drugs, fraudulent practices or deception. Those who try to do so will, sooner or later, find themselves on a slippery slope with a steep incline. Neptune’s presence in Pisces can increase your sensitivity to the unseen world, to nature, to inspiration but also to pollutants and intoxicants in your environment and diet. Therefore, the more you can make yourself a healthy instrument, the more you could be a channel for Neptune’s compassionate, creative, spiritual and inspirational energy. If you’re prepared to connect with your inner spirit, to get your act together and lead an authentic life, you may discover the end of the rainbow leads to your
Generally, the presence of Saturn in the area of your solar chart associated with career, vocation and status suggests is an important time for these matters, for making your mark someway. Your responsibilities, workload or the expectations of others may increase. This is the time for some serious decisions so be prepared to roll up your sleeves, work hard and focus. If you have been drifting, indecisive or uncommitted to a particular line or vocation now is the time to make up your mind to either make a commitment to one particular path and to get stuck in, or perhaps it is time to head off in a new direction. You may need to deal with issues of responsibility, commitment and the need to clearly define your role, purpose and direction. A time to establish or reestablish yourself your uniques and individuality. The efforts you put in over the next few years will have long-term implications for your career, vocation and life path. Additional work or responsibility that comes your way now should be welcomed.
For younger people Saturn’s impact may be felt in the immediate environment. Younger Pisceans may find that they have to grow up sooner than they had intended. There may have additional duties, task or responsibilities to fulfill now. Work, study or family pressures may weigh a little heavier on them over the next few years and so they’ll need love, encouragement and support to make them feel valued and to help them achieve their goals.
Some of the individuals you meet are likely to have a positive influence on you. With Jupiter in your relationship zone, who you know rather than what you know can make a difference so don’t be bashful if someone offers to open doors for you socially or professionally. A happy-go-lucky, philosophically inclined Jupiter type may enter your life, and open you up to a new scene and way of seeing. You may even meet a knight in shining armor or a fiery damsel who tries to rescue you. If you’re in a relationship that’s going well, this might be a good time to deepen or cement your relationship in some way. If your relationship is on the rocks, with Jupiter in your opposite sign of Virgo, there can be a tendency to think the grass is greener elsewhere. However, before looking further afield, be sure to give whatever you’ve got your best shot. Until August Jupiter will be in Leo, the area of your solar chart associated with day-to-day work, chores and routines, your health or lack thereof.
This would be a good time to adopt a healthier diet and lifestyle, ideally a plant-based diet, but also physical activity and exercise routines that were fun, enjoyable, sociable and gave you a chance to show off. This should be a favourable time for the day-to-day aspects of your work environment, routines and interactions with others in the workplace.
In astrology, eclipses are one of the most powerful harbingers of major life changes. With the Nodes beginning an 18 month transit through Pisces and Virgo from November, this points to a period of significant personal change ahead which will also have implications for relationships, personal, emotional, romantic and professional. The Nodes can be considered as an axis, the North pointing the way forward, into the future where lies a promise of fulfillment, personal development and a certain amount of good fortune lies waiting. The South Node on the other hand is a point of release, where you need to let go, unbind yourself, perhaps this is an area of your life where you have become comfortable, perhaps too comfortable even stagnant or lazy. With the South Node in Pisces and the North Node in Virgo, it is indicating that from the end of 2015 and into 2016, be prepared to reach out for others, to cooperate and compromise, to be a team player.
This is reinforcing the message of Jupiter in your opposite sign of Virgo from August. As such, you’re likely to achieve more as a member of the team than by going solo. Until August, with the North Node of the Moon in Libra and the South Node in Aries, this emphasizes your financial affairs and your financial commitments to others. There is the possibility that you could get yourself in hot water if you’re careless, indiscriminate or wasteful with your personal finances. The presence of the North Node in Libra suggests that while you should get your financial house in order, you may benefit through the help and resources, financial, emotional and otherwise, of others. Therefore, if you need help to achieve your goals, to get things done or simply just put food on the table, be prepared to ask. Although you should be sensible with your financial affairs in 2015, this is not the time to make major life decisions based purely on the financial implications. Financial considerations should not be your only or even primary concern. When confronted with opportunities for major change, if the backing and support of others is what you need to get where you want to go, again, be prepared to ask.
Those Pisceans deeply involved in group activities, politics or associations of various forms may find Pluto can indicate power struggles, political manipulation and issues of control. You be offered greater influence or responsibility or perhaps have to deal with others in such a position. Events outside your control could also bring major changes to your social life or within your circle, as one door closes another opens. This is reinforcing to some extent the message of both Jupiter and the North Node of the Moon in your opposite sign of Virgo in the second half of 2015, the importance of relationships: social, professional, emotional and romantic over the next few years.
