KnowPisces December ’22 Scope

Key themes: journey of self-discovery, community and friendships, causes and visions for the future, resources, sense of self-worth, abundance.

What a wild ride 2022 has been, after two years deep in a life changing pandemic, we’ve been able to start taking steps out of a life with so many restrictions (depending on the reality of each part of the world) and step into a life where enjoying the outside world and planning for a future seems more tangible. None of us are the same as who we were three years ago, the collective trauma is real, but so are the ways in which we’re thriving to heal and mend, collectively and individually.

We start December with your ruler, nebulous Neptune, going direct in your sign on the 3rd, sparking our imaginations and our ability to dream. Don’t give so much weight to how others perceive you or how they think of you. Make sure that you’re staying true to yourself no matter what. You can’t control the outside world, but you do have agency over your own actions, and acting in alignment with your truth will be the most healing thing right now for your body, mind and spirit.

On the 6th, Mercury, the messenger, leaves the expansive fire of Sagittarius, to enter the earthy focus of Capricorn, followed by Venus, the goddess of love, doing the same on the 9th. This happens in your area of community, friendships and the causes that move you. This is a beautiful time to make plans with friends. Also to reevaluate and reaffirm who gets to be a part of your inner circle. You want a community that’s empowering.

The last Full Moon of 2022 is happening in Gemini on the 7th at 11:08 pm EST, reminding us, in the midst of so much chatter, to be in deep exchange with ourselves. Illuminating your area of home, family and ancestry, this Full Moon highlights the importance of staying close to what grounds you. This is a good time to bring balance to the aspirations that you have for your career with the desire you might have to go inward for a while.

On the 20th, Jupiter leaves Pisces for good and will enter Aries, starting a new twelve year cycle of expansion and wisdom around the zodiac. This will bring more action, expansion and mobility into your financial life. It’s an ideal time to clear away the stories of lack and undeserving, especially when it comes to money. Work on making way for stories of worthiness, wealth and abundance to reside within you.

We welcome Capricorn season on the 21st! Beginning with the winter solstice, the sun’s journey through Capricorn reminds us of the power of our commitments. Followed by the last New Moon of the year happening in Capricorn on the 23rd at 5:17 am EST, bringing a breath of fresh air into your friendships. You’ll be craving more depth in your friendships, networks, and community ties. Pay deeper attention to who is really down for you and the bond you share, and who might be there to drain your resources.

On the 23rd, Chiron, the wounded healer, will be going direct in Aries in your area of resources, mundane delights and sense of self-worth. Chiron wants to help you see and confront where you’ve been wounding yourself when it comes to your capacity of survival. Don’t forget the system is rigged, and how much you’re able to make of it has nothing to do with your worth.

2022 comes to an end with Mercury going retrograde in Capricorn on the 29th. The end of the year will be asking us to review our commitments, to see how much we truly want to be invested in them. Keep this in mind when making your new year’s resolutions. In your case there will be a special focus on community, friends, your visions for the futures, visions that you share and expand with others, and the causes that light your fire.

KnowPisces November ’22 Scope

Pisces, as we begin the month of November in the midst of Eclipse season, pay attention to outside-the-box experiences that remind you of the impermanence of life. These synchronicities are the Universe’s way of telling you to sharpen your awareness of the present moment for this is all we have and the next moment it could be gone. As Juliet said to Romeo, “Parting is such sweet sorrow”. As the recent Solar Eclipse in Scorpio ignited your sector of philosophy and adventure, what did you realize about what’s most important to you in this lifetime, Pisces?

By the Full Moon Total Lunar Eclipse in down-to-earth Taurus on November 8th at 6:02am, Pisces, it becomes increasingly important to thread these realizations into your mindset and mundane interactions. This Lunar Eclipse conjoins with Uranus, the planet of Awakening, in your sector of communication and learning, which may compel you to radically shift your perception and simplify the way you share and gather information. Does the sweet fragility of the here-and-now show up when you’re running your errands, talking to your neighbour, or going for your go-to walk in the neighbourhood? This Lunar Eclipse also forms a challenging square to Saturn, the planet of Reality, so pay attention to how and when your mental and emotional states signal the need to set boundaries for recentering yourself with what matters most. Remember this quote by Radhanath Swami: “Mother Nature speaks in a language understood by the peaceful mind of a sincere observer.”

By mid-month, Eclipse season wanes with Venus entering uplifting Sagittarius on November 16th, activating your sector of career and reputation until December 9th. With Venus in Sagittarius, you may feel more optimistic and confident in the public sphere and receive opportunities for business alliances. As the planet of Communication, Mercury, enters fiery Sagittarius the day next through December 6th, open your mind to collecting visions, ideas, and goals for engaging in a satisfying role in society. Pisces, let yourself be inspired by Emily Weiss’ words: “And if you hear ‘that’s not possible,’ then ask ‘what is possible’.”

On November 22nd, the Sun shifts into exuberant Sagittarius which intensifies the life force energy in your sector of career and reputation until December 21st. Welcome to Sagittarius season, Pisces! Since Scorpio season may have clarified what’s more vital for you, you may notice that your understanding of ambition and accomplishment holds elevated meaning. What does “fulfilling your destiny” mean for you now, Pisces?

Pisces, while it’s in your nature to go with the flow and trust that everything will work out, Sagittarius energy challenges you to believe in big-picture thinking. The New Moon in visionary Sagittarius on November 23rd at 5:57pm opens a powerful portal for renewing your sector of career and reputation. Look beyond your title, status or type of work you do, Pisces, to a higher ideal of aligning with what it is you incarnated to be.

The possibilities are limitless as your traditional ruler, Jupiter, stations direct in Pisces a few minutes later. As the planet of Expansion & Opportunity culminates a 12-year cycle, what kind of knowledge have you gained about what it’s like to be an empathetic soul navigating a human experience? Pisces, the world might feel overwhelming at times and it’s because you’re so intuitively sensitive. With Jupiter in Pisces, it’s time to let go of the illusion that “love” can only be found in the world of dreams and fantasy – there is no need to escape. Pisces, turn the compassion, that you so easily give out, inwards and know that you carry a beacon of universal love everywhere you go, which lifts the spirits of those in need. Use your powers of creative imagination during this Jupiter-New Moon portal to make a vision board or an altar to symbolize and ground this inner knowing.

This New Moon provides a powerful portal to weave these answers into the fabric of your life’s philosophy. As Pema Chodron wrote, “To live is to be willing to die over and over again.” The Scorpio New Moon also coincides with the Lunar Samhain, a day in which the veil between the living and the dead is thinnest. Our unity to all there implies that we are living not just for us, but also for those who came before us, Pisces.

Imagine how abundant it would feel if you had faith that you are loved, no matter what?

From October 30th through January 12th, 2023, Mars stations for its first of three retrogrades in Gemini in your sector of home and family.
