Mercury in Pisces has kept the guesswork going strong. As of Friday, Mercury/Jupiter puts you/us in the know or it on the go in some enlarged, in-scope way. Watch for information to be released (perhaps leaked) or for a conversation to reveal more than is intended.
Mercury/Jupiter, a promising or a hopeful influence (perhaps reflected by the money markets), can stir up inspiration, romance, spiritual inclination, and/or dish up good entertainment. Interestingly, the Oscars will air without a host (Mercury in Pisces, missing in action. We might say the same for strong moral leadership). The measles outbreak, largely blamed on the lack of immunization (Jupiter in Sagittarius—the beliefs, the mistrust, the skepticism), is an example of the increase of vulnerability created by this exposing and wide-spreading transit.
While Mercury/Jupiter has a propensity for getting carried away or taking it too far, Friday’s Venus/Pluto in Capricorn (conjunction) aims to keep a grip on reality. Extending to December, the transit is a forerunner contributor to the momentous 2020 Capricorn alignment. Venus/Pluto marks a life-altering end phase and beginning (the beginning of the end or the end of the beginning). Primarily, it is putting the finishing touches on that which has been in the works for some time. We are evolving the way we do business, the way we relate and create, especially regarding evaluations, judgments, priorities, survival needs, and relationships (most importantly, our relationship to authority—i.e., bosses, parents, church, and state). Pluto in Capricorn also enforces a reconciliation with the consequences of the past. While all that sounds heavy-duty, the reality is that we want to and need to build it better. Do the work; get the result.
March 20 - April 20
Can you feel it? Venus/Pluto now positions you at an important time line threshold. Call it one more year. Whether you witness the evolution through a circumstance or a feeling, you are coming to the end of a long haul. While you work on the wrap-up, you are also signed up for an intensified foundation-laying, especially regarding your career or a key relationship.
April 20 - May 21
Progressively, the future is cementing its course. If it isn’t shaping into the reality you want, then what are you going to do to redirect it? Yes, there are limits to how much you can control, but there is no better time than right now to take charge. Harness available resources. Put ambition to work; make opportunity work for you.
May 21 - June 21
For now, Neptune, Mercury, and the sun in Pisces keep projects, potentials, and issues moving along a fluid track. On the bigger-picture note, Venus/Pluto marks an important finish line or time line, this regarding a contract, money, or health matter or a key relationship (intimate, business, parent, or child). All in or all out? A hefty investment/commitment of time, heart, or money is required.
June 21 - July 22
Need to rebuild your social life, career, reputation, financial and emotional security? The work is significant, but so, too, the reward. Start by redefining goals, limits, and boundaries, what’s acceptable and what’s not, what’s of value, what’s dragging you down. This year and next will cement the long-term reality. There’s no time to waste and no better time to get going.
July 22 - August 23
Venus/Pluto can redirect plans, thinking, or action-taking in some unforeseen way. You could uncover something important that changes the way you view it or tackle it. On the bigger-picture front, give yourself the year to see how much you can build, how useful it is, or how much it is worth. It can take that long to renovate, get established, or get reestablished.
August 23 - September 23
Something lost, buried, or forgotten can be found, retrieved, or replayed. Friday exposes, uncovers, or clues you in unexpectedly. Mercury/Jupiter can spark creativity, romance, or opportunity. On the flip side, you could feel overwhelmed, overspent, overtaken, or caught up in it; it’s easy to overshoot or go too far. The transit can target vulnerability, play on fearful imagination, or release a floodgate of emotion.
September 23 - October 23
You can get swept up in it Friday. On the other hand, Mercury/Jupiter could prompt you to let it slide or take the easy way out. Make the weekend do your bidding, not the other way around. A renovation project, real-estate transaction, or major investment of time, money, or heart can be in the works. Venus/Pluto is an important foundation-laying transit.
October 23 - November 22
Friday, your timing is good. Venus/Pluto assists you to get it nailed down, finalized, bought, sold, leased, or to make it official. Thanks to the transiting moon in Scorpio, the weekend is yours to own. Going by feel, on a deep dive with another or doing your own thing, you’ll have no problem making the most of the time you spend.
November 22 - December 21
Wherever you go, you’re all in. Friday’s Mercury/Jupiter trigger greatly enhances your intuition, creativity, emotional responsiveness, and physical sensitivity. Venus/Pluto also keeps you completely immersed. On the bigger-picture note, the transit marks a timetable of significance. You are wise to put maximum attention to building it better, especially regarding financial security and emotional self-sufficiency.
December 21 - January 20
An impression, intuition, or impulse runs strong. Don’t second-guess what you feel. Friday, Mercury/Neptune exposes something, clues you in, or provides an opportunity for a top-up. At the same time, Venus/Pluto sets significant wheels in motion and/or gives you something more substantial to work with or toward. Venus/Pluto launches a big investment or cash-in year or two.
January 20 - February 18
Easy or creative is your best choice on Friday; save the work or effort for another day. The weekend keeps you on a total-immersion program. Short-term and long-term, Venus/Pluto consumes you with feeling it out, sorting it out, and getting it under better control. It’s a process and it needs time to complete/run its course.
February 18 - March 20
Mercury in Pisces keeps you in full swing. Whether it is your birthday or it is coming up soon, the stars are a great backdrop for celebrating the special occasion and making the most of your weekend. Now and over the year to come, Venus/Pluto also shortens the distance to the long-awaited goal post, reward, or finish line.
