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.

(The Day of the Explorer) | Aquarius Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
You may feel like it’s difficult for you to have any personal goals or ambitions. The more you reach for, the more you’ll be guided into serving others. Be happy that, as a Pisces, these instructions are written into who you are. Nobody needs to convince you to do the right thing; you only need to get out of your own way and cooperate.
|Current Aquarius Weekly Horoscope
Last week’s solar eclipse in your birth sign is gradually working its effects on you. When an eclipse is building, it’s like an invisible storm is blowing in. The psychic air pressure changes; there’s tension in the atmosphere.
|Current Aquarius Monthly Horoscope
You don’t need a conspiracy theory to understand your life. It’s a fact that the elements of your existence have come together by design, most of which was based on your own intentions, choices and actions.
Written in the Planets
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. If you find yourself on a train of thought that specifically feels troubling, it would be particularly wise to slow it down and do a little fact-checking before you act on your thoughts.
