The Fishes

With Pisces as your Sun Sign

With the Sun in the mutable and watery sign of Pisces, you are a complex being and you can be rather unworldly and idealistic, with an innate urge to trust everyone. On the positive side this makes you sympathetic, compassionate and sensitive to the needs of others, but you are very impressionable to outside influences and may be easily led. Like the sea however, your emotional nature is full of hidden depths, sudden storms, and strong, shifting emotional currents that can sometimes overwhelm you and those around you. You have a tendency to  be vague, moody and periods of self-doubt and self-pity will often affect you. You have a strong disposition toward escapism and a refusal to face reality. "Feeling good" may be more important to you than dealing with the practical necessities of life. On the positive side, this can be expressed through meditation, a strong imagination and a wonderful appreciation of creativity. On the negative side this can lead to an excessive dependence on drugs (including alcohol) or fruitless daydreaming and an inability to conform with any kind of routine or self-discipline. If you can harness all the potential, emotions instincts within you, then you can be very successful, as you can sense in which direction to go without being told.

With Pisces as your Ascendant

The mutable water sign Pisces was rising at the time of your birth, indicating that you are sensitive and  impressionable in your general approach to life. You tend to melt into your surroundings, and others may not notice you or give you due recognition. Please don’t undervalue yourself as you really can make a difference. You will however need to work at gaining a strong sense of identity, since your openness & extreme sensitivity to the needs of others may cause you to be taken advantage of, or to be led  into actions that you would not personally choose. You are generally someone who leads from the front, but someone who influences subtly from the background.

Others may regard you as something of a soft touch and a dreamer, an idealist who finds it difficult to cope with the harsh practical realities of the material world. You may feel the need to express yourself through music or other artistic activity, or by working at some project that involves sacrificing your own personal needs for the good of others. Difficulties with dealing with the real world could make you turn to drugs as a means of escape so a more positive approach to solving them would  be through some form of meditation. The objectivity and sense of peace gained through this would benefit you physically as well as mentally. Be careful of not being too critical of your partner as this can be wholly destructive and can lead to unwanted separation.

The ruling planet of Pisces is Neptune and the house position of this planet, and its aspects to other planets, will be important in determining how and where you most easily express both the positive and negative sides of Pisces rising.

January 2018 for Pisces Ascendant

These predictions have been written to fit your Ascendant sign, and that is dependent not only on the day your were born but also the time that you were born as well as the place of your birth.

Ok, so Pisces ascendants, what does 2018 hold in store for you? Well it's natural to starting with the outer planets and how they are affecting you in general and this is a summary of where they are moving before I move on to a more detailed chronological look at the year ahead.


Overview - The Sun and Venus are in Capricorn as we start this year and Mercury joins them in this sign on 11th January and you'll be networking with your contacts, thriving in group situations and your social life should be good too. Between 18th and 20th January both the Sun and Venus shift into Aquarius we will tend to drift into the background and want to spend more time working on our own and contemplating about the future. Mercury follows on behind moving into Aquarius on the last day of the month.

Mars generally dictates where our actions and motivations are directed to, and we find it as we begin the year in your house of beliefs and higher learning alongside Jupiter. These two planets combine on the 8th January and this will open up your life to matters of diversity and travel, culture and international contacts. You'll be in a mood to learn and expand your knowledge, and you may be taking up new courses now to complement your work. You'll be forthright over faith matters and if questioned you'll defend yourself stoutly, as you will in any legal encounters too.

On 16th January Jupiter and Pluto form a sextile of progress to open out your life. Jupiter as I explained earlier is in it's natural house of higher knowledge, beliefs and culture and you'll be searching for new information and insight. This may come through a group or association that you join or are a part of through a friend who has expertise in a sector that you are interested in. This is an aspect of making new friends through cultural exchange, networking and travel. If you are dealing with legal matters, powerful friends can be of a real benefit as they can turn a situation in your favour and you can also effect changes in your relationships with your partner's family and relatives, in particular brother and sister-in-laws.

On the 17th January there is a quincunx between Mars and Uranus, and this may see you suddenly taking an interest in something new, maybe technological, scientific or radically different. You might have to pay out for something expensive, or your values will be tested by something you learn. If you are planning to be abroad at this time, expect an unusual experience or maybe you'll have to adjust your travel plans.

Mars moves into Sagittarius on the 26th and into the work sector of your chart. Your need to achieve and get positive results will be very strong and this will contribute a climate within you where you will work very hard to get good results. This position of Mars favours you being rather ego-centric and going it alone for some of the time, and it will be to your benefit if the work you have to do will be more independently based and focused rather than working in cooperation or under the auspices of a boss or senior person. The reason for this is that you will be very inclined to argue or strongly disagree with people in positions of authority; you may clash with colleagues and parents. They in turn will try to influence what you are doing, or even block your efforts and this could lead to conflict, unless you are able to compromise and swallow your pride.

On the 31st January we have the first of five eclipses this year, a lunar eclipse in Leo to start things off. This sign controls the everyday work, routines, service and health sector of your horoscope with the effect that your relationships with bosses and work colleagues will be tested by situations that test both of you. How you react to difficult situations between you in the next few months will be crucial to whether you eventually decide to change your role or employment. You'll be adapting your daily routines, changing your attitudes to people who provide services for you and also looking at your health and welfare, diet and exercise regimes and what is most suitable for you.
