Welcome to Pisces season! Things get emo on the 18th as the sun and moon both enter water signs, breaking up the pile-up of overthinking, philosophical planets in Aquarius. Under these skies, we can both identify the problem and find compassionate solutions, especially once Mercury enters poetic Pisces on the 23rd. Romantic visions and idealism are definitely leading the way, but the full moon in Virgo on the 24th also illuminates practical next steps.

This week is also big for relationships which reach a passionate climax or boiling point on the 22nd when Venus meets Mars. The last time these two relational planets met up was March 6, 2022. Are there any connections that began back then that you’re ready to let go of now?

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

The month before your birthday always has you in reflective mode. It’s easy to obsess over where you were this time last year and how much or how little you’ve gotten done since.

After a period of feeling caught up in power struggles and negotiations, the sun is now in your fellow water sign Pisces and you’re back in the flow. The full moon in Virgo on the 24th reveals how your schedule and daily rituals are either serving you or not. What if instead of “sticking to a routine,” you instead found fluidity?

Whether you’re in the throes of a new relationship, arguing with a roommate or looking for investors for your small business, you’re having a hard time knowing where they end, and you begin. Sometimes the kindest thing to do is say “no” and take space. The full moon in Virgo on the 24th reminds you of your true worth.

Scorpio (October 22 - November 21)

Pisces season begins on the 18th, and for you, this is a most creative, romantic and joyful time. Sure, there’s always more work you can do on yourself, but why not have a little fun? The full moon in Virgo on the 24th brings your most social night so far this year. Back in September, you set some intentions around connecting with friends and building your network. What have you made of those dreams?

This is your most visible time of the year as you see the results of projects you began back in September. Something important to consider, especially if you’re feeling disappointed with the outcome, is how to cultivate more of a work/life balance. Success doesn’t mean you always have to be “on.”
