Happy Birthday, Pisces!
February 19, 2016
If you ever hoped to be famous, whether in your community, your industry, or the world at large, the coming 12 months will give you a chance to make your mark. Career opportunities may open up for you in ways you have never dreamed possible, and it will be up to you to concentrate intensely on your chosen endeavors to make them a success. With each project, your reputation will grow, and by the end of next year, 2017, you could become a force to be reckoned with in your industry.
The coming year could bring you a big chance to prove your mettle. Saturn, the planet having a large part in causing this trend, demands an all-or-nothing devotion to a quest. Mars, the high-level action planet that pushes events forward with great energy, will spend an unusually long time at the very top of your chart and will join Saturn, which is already there. Both will light your house of honors, awards, achievement, and fame.
The fact that both planets will make an extended stay in this part of your chart is significant. Mars usually remains in one sign for six weeks, but in 2016 Mars will remain in that powerful and prestigious career sector (tenth house) of your chart for 29 weeks. Saturn last entered this part of your chart December 23, 2014—remaining there until June 14, 2015—and then suddenly gave you June, July, August, and half of September to rest. No such rest is due in 2016. It is time to keep your hands on the steering wheel and your focus on the road without distraction. You had a taste of Saturn last year, but Saturn has returned on September 17, 2015 to stay two more years, until December 19, 2017.
No doubt you will work very hard, for Saturn teaches that nothing of value comes for free. Saturn requires sacrifices, so if you are single, your social life may take a dip during a large part of the coming birthday year. However, you will realize that the rare chance you may be given in 2016 and 2017 can only be considered a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and one that can help you to set a strong foundation to your life. Saturn takes 29 years to circle the Sun and to visit all 12 houses of your horoscope, so this is indeed a special trend.
Although Saturn does not give rewards during his tutoring period—that will come later—you could nevertheless see gratifying progress when Jupiter and Pluto interact on March 16 and June 26. It would be easy to underestimate the potential of what may be offered to you, particularly on March 16, but later, in hindsight, you may see how wise you were to examine the opportunity and get involved if it interests you.
In your coming birthday year see what comes up professionally after the important new moon November 29, 2016—one that seems tailor-made for you. Professional opportunities may blossom beautifully for you in the days that follow this new moon—assuming you have been working hard on honing your craft.
Many Pisces work in creative fields, and if you do, you should be at the top of your game. Neptune has been touring Pisces since April 2011 and will remain in your sign until January 2026, a period of 15 years. It takes Neptune 165 years to circle the Sun, so many people never get to host Neptune in their own sign. Neptune rules the photographic and film image, so you are likely to have a high profile with the public. This is a trend that could last many years. March 2016 and September 2016 will likely be your biggest months for creative breakthroughs.
The eclipses this year will be in Pisces and in your opposite sign of Virgo, on March 8, September 1, and September 16, 2016. The final eclipse in the current Pisces-Virgo series will be February 26, 2017. Eclipses arrive in families of signs and come by every six months once a certain family of signs has emerged. This newest series started last year on March 20, 2015. It has not been since 2007 and 2008, with one extra eclipse in February 2009, that we have had eclipses in Pisces-Virgo. Eclipses are the most dramatic tools the universe uses to create change. Eclipses push us forward, ready or not, and timetables that you may have written in stone suddenly move up dramatically. The appearance of these eclipses in your sign and opposite sign of Virgo almost guarantees an action-packed year ahead for you, dear Pisces.
The interesting part about this particular series of eclipses is that they will all be solar new moon eclipses, denoting fresh starts and new opportunities. The only one that will not be a solar new moon eclipse will be a lunar full moon eclipse of this series due on September 16 in Virgo. That one will mark an ending or culmination of events. Overall, you are very fortunate, for the previous series of eclipses in Aries-Libra were almost all emotional full moon lunar eclipses, so those signs have had substantial adjustments to make in recent years. Even so, eclipses are our friends, for they create progress and bring information to the surface that we need to know to protect ourselves. The days that come after the eclipses mentioned (March 8, September 1 and September 16, 2016, and February 26, 2017) will very likely be important dates in your timeline.
Now let’s turn to your marriage prospects—you have the finest ones of all the signs! Jupiter, the giver of gifts and luck, will continue to send golden beams to your marriage house, a trend that started last August 2015, goes on until September 9, 2016. This means this period could be the very finest time in 12 YEARS to wed. Although Jupiter will leave Virgo—your opposite sign on the horoscope wheel—on September 9, there will also be an extraordinary new moon for marriage that you may want to consider in the same month, September 30, 2016. The new moon occurs on a Friday, but as with all new moons you will have several days after the new moon arrives to take action.
If you are already wed, your mate might do extraordinarily well this year and be happy and optimistic. By the time you celebrate your next birthday, you will have spun a number of joyous memories this year.
If you are not serious about anyone now, you can still use this energy toward building a lucrative business alliance. This could be the year to locate the ideal collaborator for you. Search early in the year, and make a decision by the time you get to September.
If you are single, it may be a quiet year for love, as you will be very focused in your career. Still, during March 2016 you are likely to be at your height of allure, so be sure to circulate then. The full moon of July 4 should, under normal circumstances, bring opportunity for love, but this full moon will be flawed.
Later in the year, you will have a gorgeous full moon on December 29, 2016, strong for plus or minus four days, to ensure that happy friends will surround you when you ring in the new year.
Now let’s talk about your finances in the year ahead and beyond! Indeed, from September 9, 2016 to October 2017, Jupiter in Libra could bring some of the greatest prosperity you have seen in over a decade. This trend will start September 9, 2016 and extend to October 10, 2017, a period of 13 months.
The luckiest days of the year for everyone of every sign should be September 25 and 26, with each sign experiencing the luck that the meeting of the Sun and Jupiter will bring on these dates differently. The financial luck you may experience could come from a wide variety of sources.
The end of 2016 could be your most social. Beginning December 19 and continuing until January 28, Mars will be in Pisces and put the shimmering spotlight on you. Having Mars at your side is considered a substantial advantage, for Mars will give you courage, drive, and determination. Use this part of your forecast period to launch some of your dearest endeavors and relationships. Mars will also make you more attractive and give you a sparkling aura that others will crave to be near.
Travel will likely be fun just after the new moon May 6 or the new moon October 30 (in both cases, include the two weeks that follow the new moon). Additionally, you may find that you are on foreign shores or a beautiful island on the full moon, April 22 (plus or minus four days). Or, the period on or near November 14 also represents another important full moon for travel.
Finally, looking ahead to the end of your birthday year, consider a trip not too far from home sometime from March 9 to April 21. Mars will give you lots of energy and increase your spirit of adventure and exploration. For part of that time, from April 8 to May 3, 2017, Mercury will retrograde, coaxing you to look back to an earlier time. Consider going to a place you visited (and loved) in childhood, and enjoy reminiscing about the beauty of the locale, now seen again with grown-up eyes.
Dear Pisces, you have a fantastic year ahead! Are you excited yet? You should be!
