Dec 22 - Jan 19
Click daily, weekly or monthly for your horoscope
While 2019 ends and 2020 officially begins on the New Year, the whole of December is a transition month, with the themes that have dominated 2019 running their course and playing out, while the themes that will dominate 2020 aren't waiting for the New Year. It is Jupiter who defines one of the two major areas of focus in any year, with Saturn defining the other. Beyond that we have many sub themes, some in play all year and others coming and going, but the makeup of any year is defined by where Jupiter and Saturn are. Throughout 2019 Jupiter has been in your career sector, creating the potential for professional growth now and for years to come. At the same time, not only Saturn but Pluto have been in your sector of friendship, teamwork and networking for years, making this not only an important year for personal and professional networking but where you may have been called upon to invest a lot. What happens in the early days of the month is something not seen in two decades, with Jupiter leaving your career sector and returning to join Saturn in your friendship sector. This is the first time that Jupiter and Saturn have been in the same area of your chart at the same time, bringing the two main areas of focus in any year together. This brings what will be the major thrust of 2020 into play from as early as 3rd December. However, with the Sun not leaving your career sector until 22nd December, Mercury here from 9th December to 29th December and Mars returning in the New Year, you haven't even begun to capitalise on the professional potential Jupiter has created. At the same time, with Pluto in your sector of friendship, teamwork and networking since 2008 and Saturn since 2017, this is less the start of something new and more a case of more power going into something already an important theme in your life. What does make this month exciting is that Mars will spend the whole month in an adventurous part of your chart, fuelling a passion for adventure through to the early days of January.
Week beginning Monday 9th of December 2019
You should start to notice a drop in pressure and a sense that you no longer have a monkey on your back, constantly cracking the whip. You still have the Sun in your career sector and Mercury's return on Monday will begin a chance to bring this professional year home. However, Mercury returns with the intellectually savvy edge that will allow you to keep your head in the game and your feet on the ground and this is just part of the reason why you will find it easier to stay in the moment. Another reason is the strong social focus that has deepened since last week and is set to become even stronger. At work there will be a greater sense of collaboration or at least that is the way things are starting to lean. While outside work, your social life is becoming more important, with Thursday's Full Moon giving home and family matters a boost. This might exacerbate any work/life balance issues, but chances are there won't be a lot of push back.
Monday 9th of December 2019
In the six days since Jupiter left your career sector, the Sun has brought the focus back onto the here and now. Where Jupiter had spent 13 years looking to the future, cementing bold personal and professional goals and ambitions and planting seeds for future growth, the Sun is more interested in bringing this professional year home. Mercury's return today is a benefit for both, giving you the intellectually savvy edge needed to bring this professional year home but also to turn Jupiter's goals and ambitions into a professional game plan and resolutions.
Pisces is the twelfth and ultimate sign of the zodiac. You might be last but you are certainly not least!
Pisces rules the feet and those feet carry the weight of the entire body! Sometimes you might feel like you're carrying the weight of the world too.
Yours is a mutable, fluid, water sign. The symbol for Pisces is two fish swimming in opposite directions. This could represent the way that your conscious and unconscious minds pull you in different directions, or your spiritual life versus your material life.
Perhaps those fish symbolise the way that your naturally compassionate and sympathetic nature takes on the burdens of others, even when it's to the detriment of your own direction and well-being.
Traditionally your ruling planet is Jupiter, named after the King of the Gods and renowned for his benevolence and joviality. You are benevolent by nature and you do love a good laugh!
Modern day astrology gives co-rulership of Pisces to the planet Neptune, named after the Roman God of the sea. It seems that Neptune's cloudy, nebulous, undefined energy is also a good fit for your poetic soul. We know fish belong in the sea!
Our oceans are mighty and powerful and we shouldn't downplay the powerful affect that you can have in the lives of others. As a friend or co-worker, you are the one who will willingly agree to shoulder the burden or go the extra mile. You can be completely selfless when it comes to helping others.
For this reason we find many of you in our hospitals and helping professions, although of course some of you have work that ties you to the sea or fishmongery. You're naturally adaptable, so you can adapt to most roles.
You're intuitive and highly impressionable, probably the most psychic of the water signs, so the feelings and moods of the people around you can affect you deeply, more deeply than perhaps you realise.
You could be likened to a big sponge, soaking up all kinds of moods, feelings and psychic debris while you rub shoulders with others during your everyday life, you may not be aware that this is happening. You need times of solitude to let go of this emotional clutter, to feel refreshed.
Sea air is the most wonderful balm for the troubled Pisces soul. Those of you who aren't lucky enough to live near the coast, should aim to visit often. Water is your element and it's totally cleansing. Long baths can be similarly healing, swimming too.
Your sign gets along best with the other water signs, Cancer and Scorpio, and with the earth signs, Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn, but then it's a rare Pisces who doesn't get along well with just about everyone!
The position of Jupiter and the other planets in your birth chart can mitigate how you express and experience your Pisces nature. If you'd like to know more about your horoscope, one of our astrologers will be happy to help.
