Emma Gonzalez, a student at the Parkland, Florida high school where 17 people were left dead after a mass shooting, calls out President Trump and the NRA by name at an anti-gun rally in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Eric will be discussing this on Planet Waves AM/FM tonight at 10pm EST (listen here or on 1490 AM).
The Sun entered Pisces today, joining Mercury (which entered Pisces yesterday), Venus, Neptune and Chiron. On Friday, the asteroid Juno will join the pool party. You may be noticing that last week’s edginess is softening, or feel a sensation like pressure has finally equalized.
Partly this is a typical shift after any eclipse, but it’s being emphasized right now by the cluster of planets in Pisces.
I realize as I type this that it’s also possible all the current water-sign activity might have you feeling more sensitive, a little overwhelmed or even desiring some measure of escapism in the aftermath of last week’s tragic, horrific and maddening school shooting in Florida. If that’s the case, rather than withdrawing completely, you might see if you can call on all this Pisces energy to shift into a more creative mode. That can include tending to your self-care.
Over the weekend, the Sun and Mercury entered Pisces, one day apart. They join Venus and long-term visitors Nessus and Neptune. On Friday, the asteroid Juno will join the pool party. The movement from Aquarius to Pisces signals a shift in emphasis from the intellect to the emotions; from groups as a political structure to the collective as organically unified; from disruption and pattern-setting to visioning and moving toward that vision.

In The Art of Becoming annual readings, the minor planet Quaoar — newly in Capricorn — gets a lot of attention. Today it’s in a sextile to the Pisces Sun. Notice how your emotional sense of yourself reflects certain family patterns you were born into.
In astrology, the 12th house is the one that is usually said to correspond with yours, the 12th sign. This is the most mysterious house, which is about all things invisible, and not available to the normal senses. How have your dreams been? Have you noticed that you’re doing some kind of deep working out?
Still newly in Pisces, the Sun today forms a sextile to Pholus in Capricorn. In creative terms this could help immensely: a relatively small-seeming idea providing the seed from which a whole new project may sprout. On the flip side, as always, there is a danger with Pholus of things getting out of hand.
The emphasis of the sky has now shifted from Aquarius to Pisces, with the entrance of Mercury followed by the Sun. This can allow the intuitive centers of our minds to open up like flowers in the spring. It’s important to find the balance between planting one’s feet in concrete and floating off into some misty etheric realm.
I am sure you could use some relief from the many responsibilities that have been placed on your shoulders the past three years, and the ones that you’ve taken on as a matter of choice. You did this because it was the thing to do, and I reckon that it actually was. In my reading of the charts, that condition is shifting.
