Horoscope Pisces August 2013
In June the planetary power began to shift from the East to the West. Last month the shift was confirmed. Now until December the western, social sector of your horoscope becomes the dominant sector. You’ve more or less had your way these past five months. Now it is time to let others have their way (so long as it isn’t destructive). Often what blocks us in life is excessive self-focus. Too much pre-occupation with ourselves and our own personal needs will even block prayer. So it is good to take a ‘holiday’ from ourselves every now and then and shift our focus to others. This is what is happening now. It’s a time to cultivate your social skills and attain your ends through consensus and co-operation.
Your love life has more or less been status quo this year, but on the 23rd, as the Sun enters your 7th house, you enter a yearly social peak. You are in the mood for romance – serious romance. Others seem romantically interested in you as well. Whatever your age or stage in life there is more socializing, going out and party-going. Love is active but complicated these days. Your love planet goes retrograde from the 3rd to the 26th. It is^Iso more or less in opposition to your personal planet. You and your beloved are at opposite ends of the spectrum – you have opposite perspectives on things. Often this leads to conflict and separation. But it need not be so. Opposites are seen as ‘complementary’ from a higher perspective. They are meant to provide a new insight, perspective and contribution to the relationship. Neither you nor your partner is wrong. Both perspectives are valid. There’s a need for more compromise in love matters. Don’t let these temporary disagreements rush you into some rash decision (especially from the 3rd to the 23rd). Review your love life, mull it over, and then make your decision after the 23rd.
The unattached will probably have many romantic opportunities during this period, but there is no rush. Give love time to develop. Time will show you the right decision.
Your financial planet makes a move out of Gemini and into Cancer on the 3rd. Many of the financial trends written of last month are still in effect. You are spending on family and can earn from them as well. You are more moody in financial matters. Financial ability is a matter of mood. When the mood is right you earn more and make good decisions; when the mood is off – well, there are mistakes and challenges. So try to sleep on things before any important purchase or investment. Make sure you are in a mood of peace and harmony as well. Then your decisions will be right and powerful.
Your financial planet will be in your 5th house from the 3rd onwards. This gives us many messages. You are more speculative and risk-taking now (again, try to be in a calm mood before indulging, and always follow your intuition). You earn money in happy ways – perhaps while indulging in leisure activities. You invest in the children (or those who play this role in your life) and can also earn through their help or good grace. Older Pisceans have the financial favour of children now. You are looking for ways to enjoy the act of money-making, to make it fun and not just a chore. You will succeed.
