During 2020, you’ll be called upon to work behind the scenes in many ways, Pisces. This could mean becoming less visible in your job. The major astrological event of the year, the unusual Saturn-Pluto conjunction, highlights the need to step back from the limelight to be of service in a more indirect way.
You will see this starting to happen almost immediately, with a Lunar Eclipse in your ego zone in January, swiftly followed by the exact Saturn-Pluto conjunction in your impersonal zone. Mars is transiting your career area at this time, so it may come as something of a shock if you find your glory being stolen.
You may find this difficult to handle at first, and with February’s Mercury Retrograde in your sign, talking about your feelings won’t be easy, either. But in March, Saturn arrives in your privacy zone, so you’ll be quite glad of the chance to lead a slightly less public life. Mars arrives here too and impacts upon your spirituality, driving you to seek some answers. You can learn a lot through prayer or meditation during the first half of 2020.
Busy yourself with your family life in April and May, as Venus transits this area before turning Retrograde there. With Pluto, Jupiter and Saturn also Retrograde, it’s the ideal astrological chance to reflect and heal, instead of having to rush around leading a high-voltage lifestyle.
The quiet starts to evaporate once Mars arrives in Pisces, and the Solar Eclipse in June in your ego zone probably doesn’t pass off quietly. Mercury is Retrograde here too, so you may struggle to react to a snub or a work-related move with dignity. Hang in there, because a Lunar Eclipse in your public zone will shed more light on why it’s necessary for you to take a back seat. You will eventually understand. During July, though, you can expect to have a few angry or resentful moments as you settle into your new role – the Sun forms a series of oppositions to the Saturn-Pluto conjunction that month, so anger is never far from the surface, especially around the time of the Lunar Eclipse in your impersonal zone.
September is when you’ll learn to value yourself for more than just your public role, Pisces, as indicated by Mars turning Retrograde in your values zone. At the same time, gentle Venus transits your everyday routine zone, helping you to settle down again. Expect a minor blip in November, during a Lunar Eclipse in your family zone, but it’s in December that the entire point of the year is really revealed: A Solar Eclipse in your career zone points toward a surprising or shocking new beginning. Unbeknownst to you, the energies of the year so far have been preparing you for this point. Jupiter is about to shift into your spiritual zone, so astrology suggests that you’ll come to understand that following a calling or a vocation is far more important than working in a role where there’s constant recognition and praise.
Love and Romance
Love mixes a lot with friendship this year, Pisces, whether that’s just you and your lover enjoying your social life, or a friend turning into something more special if you’re single. It could be a bumpy start to the year, though, with an early January Lunar Eclipse in your pleasure zone. If your relationship has become stale and boring, this could be the jolt you need to do something about it.
In February, passionate Mars moves into your social zone. If you’re single, start by looking for new friends rather than a new lover. This energy is all about shared interests and shared purpose, so you may meet someone at a political rally, a charity event or even a church.
May could be a tricky period for romance, with Pluto, Venus, Jupiter and Saturn all Retrograde. With Mars in your sign, you’re probably coming across as more assertive or aggressive than normal, so watch out for arguments that don’t need to happen. This is especially likely in a new relationship, but an established one could go through a rocky and argumentative phase too.
Expect the unexpected in June, with a Solar Eclipse in your dating zone and Mercury Retrograde in that area too. Miscommunication is highly likely if you’re dating; if you’re in an established relationship, astrology suggests that you may be tempted to stray on the spur of the moment. Although it’s mostly related to your move into the background, July’s oppositions between the Sun and the Saturn-Pluto conjunction may also impact on your love life and your social life. There could be bad feelings if a friend does declare their love, but you’re not interested, so it’s very important to be tactful and respectful.
The tension doesn’t last long, and by August, Venus is transiting your pleasure zone, Pisces, promising many memorable moments in a relationship no matter if it’s old or new. This is the ideal time to have some fun!
October finds Venus in your romance zone and intriguingly, making a trine aspect to the Saturn-Pluto conjunction which sits in your impersonal zone. This could be another moment where love and friendship collide, although this time with a much happier outcome.
In an established relationship, December could be a very meaningful month. With Jupiter moving into your spiritual zone, you may feel driven to examine the karmic links between you and your lover – this could be very illuminating and will take your relationship to the next level for sure. If you meet someone new in December, it will most likely be through an unexpected coincidence, or a happy accident of some kind. Once you have met, you may feel as though you’re linked through previous lives – and yes, Pisces, you could well be right!
Career and Money
2020 is a year when you’ll seem to be moving into the background, away from the acclaim that your current job offers and into more of a supporting role. However, this is not a step backwards, Pisces – far from it – and this year’s energies may well be about helping you find your true vocation.
You start the year with Mars transiting your career zone, so your ambition is strong, and you probably can’t imagine that changing. However, the Saturn-Pluto conjunction in your impersonal zone is starting to take effect. So, during February, as Venus moves through your values zone, you’ll probably find yourself questioning the purpose of what you do for a living.
In March, Saturn arrives in your spiritual zone and so does Mars. Another term for this astrology zone of your chart is the sacrifice zone, and that’s a hint about where your work life may be heading. Follow up any instincts you have for a caring, more altruistic role. Mars moves into your own sign in May, and so your ambitions will return, but most likely heading in this new direction.
During June, a Solar Eclipse in your ego zone and a Lunar Eclipse in your career zone both point toward this subtle shift of career interests – away from something individualistic and into a more demanding but arguably more important and satisfying role behind the scenes or in a support or caregiving role. This may even mean a temporary fall in income, but with Mars arriving in your money zone at the end of the month, you’ll be highly motivated to make up any shortfall through creative and ingenious side hustles.
Don’t be surprised if friends and family are not initially on board with a new career direction, especially in July. It really isn’t up to them, so don’t take criticism to heart. You may well not be fully convinced yourself, but it’s important to remember that it’s your decision alone, even if you feel that you have been semi-forced into this situation. Mars squares up to the Saturn-Pluto conjunction in August, so one friend in particular may be heavily advising against where you’re headed. Follow your heart, Pisces.
Through fall (or spring – depending on your hemisphere) Mars spends some time Retrograde in your money zone, which is another indicator that your plans may lead to an income drop. However, in December, the Solar Eclipse in your career zone shows once and for all that you’re making the right decision. With Venus moving into your career zone and smoothing over any blips, things will go well. And as the year ends, Jupiter, the astrological bringer of good fortune, moves into your spiritual and sacrifice zone. If you do end up moving into a more vocation-like career, the signs are excellent that 2021 will bring you major satisfaction.
2021 is an important year in your spiritual growth, Pisces. In February, June and December, three incidences of a rare and powerful Saturn-Uranus square will play out in your astrology chart, activating your communication zone and your spirituality zone – in practical terms, this is about learning to fulfill your spiritual gifts by speaking or writing, learning or teaching on spiritual topics.
In January, you may feel very conscious of what others think, with the Sun and Venus both forming conjunctions to oppressive Pluto in Capricorn, your social zone. This may impact your self-confidence, and when Mercury turns retrograde in your secrecy zone at the end of January, it will be tempting to hide away. However, in the second week of February, Venus and Mercury both form conjunctions to Jupiter in Aquarius, your spiritual zone. This could be something of a revelation for you, revealing that you need to teach or express your spiritual knowledge. When the first Saturn-Uranus square becomes exact on February 17th, your initial efforts to do so may be misjudged, ignored or even ridiculed. Hang on in there. We’re not done yet.
The Lunar Eclipse on May 26th occurs in your career zone, however, and for a while your focus will switch to your career ambitions and your need to make a living. The Solar Eclipse on June 10th is in your family zone, reminding you of your responsibilities over and above your quest for spiritual growth. With Mars pushing into your work zone at the end of June, you will be able to work hard and make up for any lost time earlier in the year; Jupiter’s arrival in your own sign, Pisces, on June 13th will help too, but only until Jupiter turns retrograde on June 20th. The Mars-Saturn opposition on July 1st pits your everyday work against your spiritual urges, as does the Sun-Jupiter opposition on August 20th. Somehow, you will have to find a way to reconcile your career with your desire for spiritual growth.
It’s probably not until Jupiter turns direct in Aquarius, your spiritual zone, on October 18th that the fog will start to clear about this. With Mars moving into your philosophy zone on October 30th, you are set to learn more about your chosen spiritual path, and perhaps even about how you could forge a meaningful career in this area. However, the Lunar Eclipse in your communication zone on November 19th, followed swiftly by a Solar Eclipse in your career zone on December 4th, warns you not to push too far too fast, Pisces.
During the holiday period in late December, the Saturn-Uranus square becomes exact for the final time, and this time it’s likely to push you into action. Expect the holiday period to be a crucial time for you in deciding how to honor your spiritual path and how to lead, teach and innovate in this area. Jupiter settles into your own sign, Pisces – to stay for some while – in the last days of 2021 – a beautiful hint that, by then, you may be well on the way towards embodying your true spiritual path as a wisdom-sharer.
Love and Romance
It’s a relatively quiet year for your love life, but there are positive indications that your principal relationship will remain strong and supportive.
You’ll probably first feel the effects of this support in late March, when Mars trines Saturn in your spiritual zone, from your family zone, helping to remove obstacles and to fire up your enthusiasm for your chosen path. This is mirrored by a very helpful Mars-Jupiter trine in mid-April. Later in April, with Mars moving into your play zone, you will have opportunities to spice up an existing relationship or to rekindle the magic in a love affair which may have stagnated. The magical Mars-Neptune trine on May 31st is an example of a key date in your love life; the trine between Venus and Jupiter on June 3rd is another.
Be careful to balance your working life with your love life and family life during May and June, however. The Lunar Eclipse on May 26th is in your career zone and is followed by the Solar Eclipse on June 10th in your family zone. As supportive as your family may be, don’t make them second best in your priority list by spending too much time at work.
Late July sees both Venus and Mars start to move through the love zone of your chart, and this looks like a settled and happy period for an established relationship. If you are single and looking for love, mid-August could bring some interesting encounters when Venus shifts into Libra, your passion zone. However, the Mars-Neptune opposition on September 2nd adds an element of possible confusion or deception into your love life, so be very careful before you give someone new your full trust. Mercury turning retrograde in Libra, your passion zone, in late September is another potential warning sign for a new relationship – take it slowly, Pisces.
When Jupiter turns direct in your spiritual zone on October 18th, you’ll be very keen to share your beliefs and your discoveries with your partner. This would be a lovely time to explore the karmic links which bind you together, and to share your secret dreams and fantasies.
Moving into November, friendships and your social life look increasingly important, especially once Venus moves into Capricorn, your social zone, in early November. If you are single at this point, a friendship may become something more than just a friendship – but do watch out for the Lunar Eclipse in your acquaintances zone on November 19th. Sudden changes in interpersonal relationships may be tricky at this point. The ensuing Solar Eclipse in your career zone on December 4th may be a reminder that work-family balance issues still need ironing out.
Venus forms two conjunctions with compelling Pluto in December; one on the 11th and another on the 25th, having turned retrograde. Both of these occur in your social zone, so again, if you are single, there may be an admirer closer than you realized. However, don’t rush into anything. Jupiter is due to settle into your own sign on December 29th, and that is when your true inner confidence will start to shine.
Career and Money
There look to be quite a few training and development opportunities on the way for you in 2021, Pisces. The first is likely to come out of the blue around January 20th, when Mars conjuncts Uranus. However, your desire to pursue a more spiritual pathway is a concern for you throughout the year and the first Saturn-Uranus square on February 17th makes you second guess your need or desire for extra training or more qualifications.
A helpful Mars-Pluto trine opens your eyes wide on February 25th, however, and shows you that there is more than one way to work in a spiritual fashion. Conjunctions between first Venus and Uranus and then the Sun and Uranus in your learning zone in late April will also bring opportunities to learn and to grow, as will the Sun-Pluto trine on May 17th.
Nevertheless, it’s the Lunar Eclipse in your career zone on May 26th that really shakes things up. You may be dissatisfied with your career for all kinds of reasons, not just your underlying spiritual motives. However, the Solar Eclipse on June 10th occurs in your family zone and urges you not to take drastic action while you have family responsibilities. The second Saturn-Uranus square hits days later and increases your feeling of being trapped in your current job. With Mars starting to move through your everyday work zone, however, you’ll feel able to make some changes there which will help your job suit you much better.
Be careful with money and investments in late September, when Mercury turns retrograde in this area of your chart. You may be kidding yourself over something financial, and when the Sun conjuncts Mars here on October 8th, it’s important to avoid impulsive decisions.
More training opportunities start to appear in late October, when Mars shifts into your training zone. In November, you may feel that you’re being led even further away from your chosen path, especially on November 10th when Mars squares Saturn and November 15th when the Sun squares Jupiter. Not so. If you can run with the idea of training and more qualifications, do so – because the Lunar Eclipse in your learning zone on November 19th will show that this was the right thing to do. The swiftly following Solar Eclipse in your career zone on December 4th further underlines this. Change and upheaval are on the way but working in your favor, Pisces.
During the holiday period in late December, the final Saturn-Uranus square takes place, asking you yet again whether you are ready to embody your role as a spiritual teacher. With the changes and training you have experienced in your career thus far this year, you are likely to be in a position to say yes, at last. This is why, when Jupiter settles into your own sign of Pisces in the last few days of 2021, you should feel very inspired and optimistic about 2022.
