Welcome to January, Pisces! As the last sign of the zodiac, you’re not only very wise but also quite empathetic. As a result, you may have taken on too much pain that wasn’t yours during 2020. Hopefully, you spent some of December practicing self-care to try and decompress, but don’t stop now just because we’re changing the calendar. The first big astrological date of 2021 for you to note is Friday, January 8, when Venus, the goddess of love, beauty, and abundance, enters hardworking Capricorn and your 11th House of Friendship.
Also on this date, communication planet Mercury enters innovative Aquarius, and your 12th House of the Unconscious, stirring up deep spiritual desires. With your friendships in the spotlight, it will be important for you to reconnect with your inner circle to feed your emotional needs. Social distancing has affected us all. Because many of our work lives have fused with our personal lives on Zoom and over text, it’s become easier for many of us to push off our new way of socializing virtually. But you need your crew to swim with, pretty Pisces fish. Reach out to your best friends right now and make some plans to spill your guts.
It’s important to make these plans during the first half of the month, because you may start to feel a bit lazy during the second half of the month. Innovative Uranus goes direct on Thursday, January 14. Usually, it’s good news when a planet goes direct, and this transit will help you relax regarding the state of the world. However, when Uranus went retrograde last August, it helped light a fire under your ass and put you to work, whether that was through activism or checking in on friends. Now, life may feel a bit calmer, but there’s a flip side to this coin; some of us may feel less urgency about the things that matter to us, and it’s important that you don’t let your support system fall to the wayside.
Logical Aquarius season begins on Tuesday, January 19, helping you keep your cool just in time for Inauguration Day, when the internet is sure to be a stressful place regarding politics. While everyone feels the effects of the sun entering Aquarius, a day to circle just for you, Pisces, is Tuesday, January 26, when your ruling planet Neptune squares your North lunar node, which represents your future. You’re already a psychic sign, but pay extra attention to the dreams and messages that come your way around this time. If you’re feeling unsure about what next steps you should take, both in your professional and personal life, take note of any signs the universe seems to offer up during this transit.
