There are three Mercury retrogrades this year. The first is in Aquarius from Saturday, January 30 to Saturday, February 20; the second in Gemini from Saturday, May 29 to Tuesday, June 22; and finally, the third is in Libra from Monday, September 27 to Monday, October 18. Mark these dates down and watch for the usual communication snafus; in particular, beware of the return of exes. After the everpresent loneliness in 2020, if a former lover reaches out, you may be tempted to take the sex or attention. However, dear Pisces, these sorts of things usually end the way they did the first time around. You’ve made it this far; hold out for someone else.
Lucky planet Jupiter is in Aquarius and your 12th House of the Unconcious for the majority of the year. The planet enters your sign in your 1st House of Self from Thursday, May 13 to Wednesday, July 28 before stationing there for a year starting on Tuesday, December 28. Your presence will be extra magnetic during these times, and it’s an ideal time to take some risks and stick your neck out a bit. As long as you’re still using your head a bit, don’t be afraid to follow your heart.
There is a lunar eclipse on Wednesday, May 26 in Sagittarius, a solar eclipse in Gemini on Thursday, June 10, a lunar eclipse on Friday, November 19 in Taurus, and a solar eclipse on Saturday, December 4 also in Sagittarius. While all eclipses tend to bring surprises, especially watch out for those in Sagittarius (Wednesday, May 26 and Saturday, December 4) as they light up your 10th House of Career. Many of us struggled professionally due to pandemic budget cuts and business closures. You’re feeling motivated, now, which is a good thing, because more opportunities are starting to come your way. Say yes to those that feel right.
As the year comes to an end, your love life goes under review as lover planet Venus goes retrograde in Capricorn, and your 11th House of Friendship on Sunday, December 19. When a planet goes retrograde, it can feel as if that area of our life is extra messy, but it’s also a chance for do-overs. Echoing themes for earlier this year, this Venus retrograde looks at your friendships from a romantic perspective. Wait, are you secretly in love with your best friend? If so, you should tell them. On that note, enjoy the new year, Pisces, and see you in 2022.
