Summary Pisces Horoscope: An emphasis on work, health, and closure, with two major eclipses in these sectors. Mercury retrograde could see a relationship or home matter come up for review. Saturn direct in your career house could see career matters speed up.
Extended Pisces Horoscope: There’s sure to be lots of activity in your life this month, with two game changing eclipses, Mercury and Uranus going retrograde, and Saturn going direct!
The month begins with two major heavy hitting planets, Jupiter (your ancient ruler) and Pluto, squaring one another on August 4th in your money and goals houses. It seems you may have to spend a large amount of money at this time, perhaps to pay off a credit card or other debt. Alternatively, perhaps there is a problem with a friendship- either a fight or your friend is in a tough spot.
This aspect has occurred before- in late November 2016 and late March 2017– so think back to those times for clues as to themes that could emerge.
The first eclipse will be a lunar eclipse on August 7th at 15 degrees Aquarius, which is your closure house. Luckily, this eclipse will reach out happily to good luck Jupiter in your money house, as well as stable Saturn in your career zone, suggesting that you could happily end a job or assignment. You might even be paid handsomely for your efforts!
One thing to be watchful of, however, is the fact that energizer Mars will be zooming through your 6th house of work and health, directly opposite this eclipse. It’s possible that you will need to address a medical concern, or that work will seem like it never ends! Make sure to take care of yourself, rest properly, and eat well during this time.
Some good days to address work, health, money, or career needs are August 10th, 13th, 16th, 20th, 21st, 22nd, and 27th. Luckily, I don’t see any negative squares or oppositions between planets in your 6th house of work and health this month- so if you do need to address a medical issue or get a new job, this is a really wonderful time to go after your goals.
In fact, the solar eclipse on August 21st takes place in this very same house of work and health, and it is the most gorgeous eclipse! It will conjunct motivator Mars and the fated North Node, reach out happily to Jupiter and Uranus in your two money houses, and trine stable Saturn in your career zone!
It seems any new job will be a major step up for you and bring a hefty raise! If you are undergoing a medical procedure, this is also a wonderful eclipse for it.
There is reason to suggest that you make any moves earlier than the eclipse, however, as on August 13th Mercury goes retrograde, and I think we all know to stay away from Mercury retrograde by now! This time, it will take place in Virgo and your 7th house of partnerships, so you may need to review and revise a close personal relationship. I would avoid making any relationships “official” (including jobs, unless you’re desperate) during this time or signing any contracts. You could find down the road that whatever you committed to is not what you thought it was.
Mercury also rules your 4th house of home and family, so this is an area of life that could come up for review as well. Mercury goes direct on September 5th.
Switching gears, you’ll be pleased to hear that love planet Venus is gliding through your 5th house of love, children, and play this month, so Jack won’t be just a dull boy all month!
Venus will make loving aspects to Mercury, Neptune (your ruler!), and Pluto respectively on August 10th, 12th, and 15th, so these are wonderful days to go on dates, try to conceive, or work on creative projects.
Days I would avoid are August 17th and August 24th, when Venus will be angry with Jupiter and then Uranus in your two money houses.
Luckily, August 27th sees the Sun in your money house reach out happily to Saturn in your career zone. Even better, on August 25th, Saturn goes direct in your career sector, suggesting that career matters will speed up or become easier.
Summary Pisces Horoscope: A friendship matter or long-term goal may come to a head with the full moon on July 8th. The new moon on July 23rd could sweep in a new job, assignment, or health routine.
Extended Pisces Horoscope: June 23rd saw a new moon in your love and romance house, conjunct Mercury and Mars in the same house, and making a loose square to Jupiter in your financial zone.
It’s possible that you had to spend money on a romance, child matter, or creative project.
The first few weeks of the month continue this focus on love, children, and fun, with your best day being July 5th, when the Sun makes a harmonious trine to your ruler, Neptune in your sign.
However, there are some hard aspects going on in this house, which could bring challenges or expenses your way. Days to watch out for are July 2nd, 4th, 9th, 17th, and 20th.
Then, July 8th sees full moon in Capricorn and your 11th house of friendships and goals, and in truth, this moon is mixed.
While the moon will make a loving trine to your ruler, Neptune, in your sign, it will conjunct transformational Pluto, oppose warrior Mars in your love house, and square good luck Jupiter in your financial zone.
You may achieve a long-held goal at this time, but it may come with expense or sacrifice. It’s also possible you feel torn between a friend or a romance, or between group obligations and personal desires. You could also hear distressing news about a friend.
Home and family matters seem to go well this month, with loving Venus gliding her way through Gemini. Good days to address home or family needs are July 18th, 26th, and 30th.
I would avoid July 17th and 24th for family matters.
As the month progresses, planets begin to trickle into Leo and your 6th house wellness, jobs, and daily routines. Luckily, it’s all good news on this front, as Mercury makes harmonious aspects with Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, the True Node, and Uranus on July 7th, 14th, 19th, 21st, and 24th respectively.
In fact, you get a lovely new moon in this same 6th house on July 23th, giving you motivation and energy to pursue new health routines or diets. You might even get a new job, or perhaps a new office upgrade or assistant.
Of course, nothing will fall into your lap, you must polish your resume and send it out there or ask for more responsibilities.
Next month offers even more possibilities for wellness and work, since there will be a stunning solar eclipse in Leo (your 6th house) on August 21st.
