Pisces 19th Feb - 20th March
YOUR YEARLY HOROSCOPE 2017
Pisces is one of the Sun signs experiencing
some of the strongest astrological aspects in 2017.
That is not a problem but what does complicate matters
is the contrasting nature of these influences. With Neptune in
Pisces, your Sun sign, you are especially sensitive to the atmosphere and emotional undercurrents around you. This is good for artistic and altruistic activities. However, with Saturn on high in Sagittarius, you can’t avoid dealing with the world. How you manage the two will go a long way to determining how well you do in 2017. The North Node points a way forward, encouraging you to roll up your sleeves and get busy while the South Node warns that devil sometimes finds work for idle hands. Fortunately, with Jupiter in Libra and Uranus in Aries, your financial prospects look favourable but you’ll need to be flexible, innovative and not bite off more than you can chew. Pluto indicates that, if you’re prepared to be a team player, your inner circle may be of help in enabling you get where you want to go.
Saturn's influence in 2017
Sober Saturn will remain in Sagittarius until the end of 2017 when it moves into Capricorn. Sagittarius, like Aries and Leo, is a fire sign and the three fire signs form a harmonious triangular alignment with one another in the zodiac. Saturn’s presence in Sagittarius, like the prescience of Uranus in Aries discussed below, promises to be a favourable one. Saturn is in Sagittarius, the area of your solar chart associated with your work, status, vocational life path and interactions with those in positions of power and influence, if you’ve been avoiding your duties and responsibilities you may get a wake-up call requiring you to pull your socks up. If you’ve been making constructive efforts then your responsibility and recognition may increase.
With Saturn we reap what we so and while you may have a lot on your plate in 2017, the benefits and rewards will come later. Those of you who may have been siting on the fence may be required to choose one path over another. Avoid choosing the path of least resistance if a more fulfilling and demanding, path also opens up before you. When you deal with those in positions of authority or influence endeavour to make an extra effort to be seen to to be fair, honest and just in your dealings, decisions and conduct.
Jupiter's influence in 2017
Jupiter, your traditional planetary ruler, takes twelve years to travel the 12 signs of the zodiac, spending approximately 12 months in each zodiac sign. Jupiter will be in Libra until October 2017 when Jupiter moves from Libra to Scorpio. Libra is one of the money zones of your solar chart, the one associated with the resources and money of others and your financial dealings, connections and commitments to them. Jupiter is associated with serendipitous luck, good fortune and expansion but with happy-go-lucky Jupiter, there is always the potential of excess, extravagance and waste. Nevertheless, you may benefit indirectly from the good fortune of others in 2017. It should also be easier to get the help, backing and support you need to achieve your goals. However, be careful not to be too indulgent of yourself and ask for too much more than you need.
With Jupiter in Scorpio from the autumn and into 2017, this would be a good time to explore life and the world away from your usual scene and routine. Travel, adventure and connecting with people from different cultures and backgrounds is well-starred. This would also be a good time to explore and expand your educational, spiritual or philosophical interests.
The Nodes of the Moon's influence in 2017
The Moon’s Nodes, the North Node of the Moon and the South Node of the Moon form a pair, an axis and are always opposite one another. Approximately every 18 months or so, they change zodiac sign. The North Node is orientated towards the future, where we’re going, and so points to an area which we need to embrace and develop, where greater opportunities to develop our potential awaits us. The South is associated with the past, where we are coming from, and is considered a place of release. An area of life where we may have become too comfortable, complacent, indulgent or a creature of habit and routine.
With the North Node in your opposite sign of Virgo, the relationship zone of your solar chart until May, it’s important for you to make an effort to reach out to and connect with others rather than trying to do everything yourself or go it alone. And when you do, be prepared to compromise, cooperate and let others set the agenda. Be prepared to make the first move and approach others rather than sitting back and waiting for them to take the initiative. Personal and professional relationships are well-starred so don’ be bashful. Be open to a new relationship or renewing an old one.
In May the North Node will move into Leo and the South Node will enter the sign opposite Leo, Aquarius. From May it is important to be busy and productive and to develop a regular routine that can ground you and bring greater stability into your life. Try to keep your feet on the ground and not let yourself be swept away by flights of fancy or desire to escape from having to roll up your sleeves and fulfil your obligations. You might also want to consider adopting a regular physical or spiritual practice such as swimming, Yoga or Mediation that can help you develop and maintain and strengthen your mind and body and make you more effective in your dealings with the world.
Uranus's influence in 2017
Uranus is associated with change and upheaval, often sudden and unexpected and for some it represents a wake-up call. Uranus wakes us up from our narrow view of things and brings with it a new perspective that makes perfect sense to us afterwards although prior to its influence in our lives we didn’t notice, or failed to notice, what we later consider an obvious and natural course of events. If we knew what to expect, it wouldn’t be Uranus. Taking approximately 84 years to travel the 12 signs of the zodiac, Uranus spends about 7 years in each zodiac sign and is considered a background influence for most people until it triggers some of the more personal points in our horoscopes.
Uranus is in Aries, the area of your solar chart associated with money, possessions, personal resources and your more direct financial affairs. Although the sources and flow off your income may be erratic, unpredictable or unorthodox, this is not necessary a problem if you can be flexible and put something away for a rainy day. You may have opportunities to tap into unusual or original ways of making money, new ways of working or woking with new ideas, technology or intellectual property. You should also be open to using new forms of exchange, payment methods or financial practices in 2017 and beyond.
Pluto's influence in 2017
Pluto travels very slowly, taking approximately 248 years to travel the 12 signs of the zodiac. As with Uranus, Pluto is associated with change. However, Pluto and Uranus are not the same. The change Pluto signifies is associated with the natural process of death and rebirth, something we see and experience around us everyday, such as the cycle of decay, death, rebirth and renewal that characterises the changing seasons. So to does Pluto affect us all to varying degrees at varying times in our lives. Pluto has a cleansing influence. Pluto cleans away that which has served its purpose or role in our lives and needs to make way for new life, growth and new experiences. Change is an inevitable part of life and is more difficult or stressful, the more we try to hold on or resist. Pluto can give us an opportunity to discover, or rediscover, hidden talents and resources within us, talents which may now demand a stage or a place in our lives to be expressed. Pluto can be the key to making the changes ahead that work in our favour.
Pluto is in Capricorn, the area of your solar chart associated with friendships and group activities and associations. This indicates that some of the people you meet socially or the groups you join may have a profound influence on the course of your life. Therefore, be open to making big changes in your social network and connecting with kindred spirits who share your hope and aspirations.
Neptune's influence in 2017
Neptune will be in Pisces throughout 2017 and beyond. Like both Uranus and Pluto, Neptune is considered an outer planet. Neptune is also slow moving, taking 165 years to travel the 12 signs of the zodiac and so, like Uranus and Pluto, Neptune's influence reflects social, political and cultural changes that shape and colour the course of history. We experience these outer planets in a personal way when they touch or trigger the sensitive points in our horoscopes. Neptune more than any other planet is not of this world. The world of Neptune is a utopian paradise. Neptune is concerned with selflessness, idealism, spiritual and mystical inclinations, imagination and fantasy. Difficult aspects from Neptune can be stressful since they test our worldview and challenge us to make our dreams and ideals a reality. Neptune has an affinity with Pisces and so feels relatively comfortable in your Sun sign.
Neptune’s presence in Pisces is likely to correspond with increased sensitivity on a number of levels. This could encompass greater sensitivity to the energy, mood and emotional undercurrents going on around you as well as heighten intuition and increased sensuality. This is good for creative and artistic work but may sometimes leave you feeling uncomfortable in the company of insensitive individuals or toxic environments. At times, due to your increased sensitivity and demands made upon you you may feel the urge to escape, drop out or loose yourself in the garden of earthly delights. This could prove counter-productive and so it would be prudent to take time out occasionally and retreat into the arms of mother nature. This can also be a very creative time, a time when you can be an agent for positive change in the world, especially in the little things you do everyday, to become an example to others.
Since your idealism, imagination, sense of compassion and capacity to penetrate the mysteries of life are enhanced, this is a good time to pursue your dreams, ideals and the exploration of transcendental psychology and mystical subjects. Neptune will be in Pisces until around 2024 when it moves into Aries. As it slowly makes it’s way though your Sun sign in 2017, it will be felt particularly strongly by those Pisces born at the end of February and early March.
