AUGUST 2017 GLOBAL ASTROLOGICAL OVERVIEW PLUS YOUR HOROSCOPE


All month Jupiter is squaring up to Pluto. This does indicate a period that globally is predominantly dominated by ruthless egos that care only about steamrollering (vanity) projects through for their own gains, with not much concern for the greater good. However such behaviour does attract rebellion from those who feel threatened, by any perceived abuse of power, so power struggles ensue, and unrest, at the least, is unleashed.

Till 19th Mars is still hanging around the Sun by conjunction, hence ambition is rife as are aggressive noises, if not action. So the globe is still in a tricky period as far as impulse and ruthlessness is concerned.

However the unpredictable is less rife than it was last month.

Mercury in Virgo does move into retrograde motion from the 13th and remains in retreat till September 5th.  For many this will feel like a period of frustration, delay and blocks . It can also correlate with travel disruption and and technological hiccups. Misunderstandings and confusions are also potentially rife. This period is best seen as an oportunity to rethink and revise plans and projects Getting angry and impatient is a waste of an opportunity to take time out to look at a bigger picture , pause and revise.

 On cue, as his chart clearly shows, Trump’s troubles seemed to start to be significantly underlined last month, as his son was revealed to be embroiled in controversy relating to the whole Russian election interference scandal and the internal war in the White House.  Saturn started in early July to exactly conjunct Trump’s natal Moon in 5th house i.e. trouble re children and challenge from the past as the Moon rules his 12th house. This every 30 year Saturn assault on his Moon by conjunction and opposing his Sun, more or less simultaneously, continues till half way through October. His health, both physical and mental is potentially under strain as is his political standing. This would be a very karmically difficult time for anyone. People, who withstand this, IF their conscience is clear, are usually, at the very least, humbled, as there is a realisation of the huge difficulties of a certain task/role/job they are involved in, as the realities of the challenges hit home hard. Without humility, any guilty past comes home to haunt with a vengeance under these transits. Events through till late October, in his presidency, will create a nemesis that lays the foundations that determine his ultimate presidential status.

There are 2 eclipses this month. On the 7th there is a partial Lunar eclipse at 15 degrees of Aquarius.
This is powerful in so far as it signifies endings of chapter in quite a powerful way, personally and globally, for significant numbers of people.

The total Solar eclipse on the 21st is at 28 degrees of Leo. This will be visible strongly in many parts across the USA.  Significantly, it is virtually exactly conjunct Trump’s ascendant and Mars in Leo.  This will impact him strongly, as, despite current challenges, he will feel a new surge of a rebellious confidence to compensate for his problems and any humiliations he has felt. This is likely to encourage him to indulge in even rather more compensatory rash and ruthless behaviour and he will be extremely likely to throw his weight about and enemies should beware. This however ultimately may prove for him to be hubris too far.

Interestingly and unusually Trump was born at the time of a lunar eclipse… and because his Moon in Sagittarius, therefore conjuncts his south node, this indicates that, by becoming so involved in politics, he is ideologically adopting ambitions in this life, that are connected to past stubborn views, which are outworn and which need to be left behind. Despite his posturing, he may well realise, that his best road in life was probably to have remained in the business world, as his ability to cope ideologically with a swiftly changing globe and its needs is likely to be sorely lacking. 

 Globally, July was very Uranian and Martian   and August is still very Martian, hence increased global desires to flirt with war and the recent trend towards increasingly totalitarian regimes and ambitions towards dictatorship by political leaders, have been and are very self evident.

Whether one looks at the UK constitution’s chart for 1st January 1801 or England’s chart for 25th December1066, this benighted land is also going through crisis, not least economic or in international dealings now and for the coming few years. No surprise there. Teresa May has Neptune still transiting by conjunction her Mars and this once every 165-year transit will undoubtedly now and till the beginning of 2019, at the least humble her and if she manages to hang on to her position, it will disempower her significantly. She will also, professionally, not be able to trust those around her, as deceptions and disloyalty are in the air.

The most unpredictable and chaotic days this month are around the 24/25th when Venus squares Uranus, and intense and possibly rather dark days are around the 16th when Venus opposes Pluto. 
However with 2 eclipses, this month on the 7th and 21st, there will be some game changers on our planet this month, possibly rather intensely so on the 7th.


ARIES

 August for you is a time of enjoyment.   It’s party time; when you can take the initiative, have fun and be extrovert.  Romance is also more flagged up

It is important however, after the 13th, for many of you, to ensure there are no misunderstandings and miscommunications, or alternative facts haunting you at work. 

Before the 26th, you may all be tempted to be rather self-indulgent on the home and family front.  Good times are around, but curb extravagance.   After the 26th if born up to 30th, affections and passions are stimulated, as is creativity.

All born from March 28th to April 17th will be in a very constructive, energised mood, particularly romantically and creatively, as Mars stimulates you to action and positivity.

Jupiter is currently opposing the Suns of those born April 5th to 12th.  For this group, travel is very much on the cards, happy vacations; and also relationships are particularly abundant.  The only downside is over-confidence, over-indulgence and letter other people influence you a little too much. 

Saturn, however, is very constructive and mature if born April 10th to 12th.  It is good for study, serious communications, and legal matters and for long distance business. 

Uranus, still in your sign, is now directly impacting, as he was last month, those of you born around April 17th to 19th.  This influence, which will last on and off until May next year, is definitely one of restlessness and change and happens only every 84 years.  Acknowledge it, accept it, but do not be too impulsive.  Let the change happen to you.  Don’t force it. A more humanitarian and maverick attitude is growing.  You are looking outside the box. 

However, for those born around April 6th to 8th, you are in the final chapter of the transit that has been affecting you since March 2016 and it will be over by the end of this year; and it is one where there has been some internal struggle with yourself in order to gain your own rightful power and where you have possibly been in an external power struggle with someone, connected to work or career.  Very deep stuff has been dug up for you, so that you are recognising the need to assert your own uniqueness, individuality and independence and autonomy.  This is now under way towards a successful conclusion, provided you keep squeaky clean, are not coercive and what you are doing, you know is for the greater good. 


TAURUS

August is a month which focuses very much on home and family for your sign; and from the 13th, when Mercury moves retrograde, which he is until the 5th September, there a need just to be sure that communications in love life and with one’s offspring are allowing no room for misunderstandings; and maybe some re-thinking of plans in any speculative venture is possible, but it would be constructive.

Before the 26th, all of you will be able to utilise your charms in communications and your creativity is flagged up and harmony with siblings is underlined.  Your heart and your mind combine well. 

After the 26th, all born up to April 28th may be tempted to be lavish in their attentions and spending on home and family. Family celebrations or gatherings are indicated

However, Mars is in Leo, and therefore stressful to some extent, to those born April 27th to May 18th.  For this group, one need to be a little aware that there may well be some impatience and impulsiveness on your part and you may be a little like a bull in a china shop at home, or alternatively others on the home or family front may well be over-reactive and over assertive to you.  Also, stop and count to ten before doing anything risky, particularly at home, as you are slightly more lacking in caution in action and word, which potentially can make you a little metaphorically and literally accident prone.  Also, beware over-fixity and lack of flexibility when dealing with others.

Neptune is currently bringing a dose of hypersensitivity and empathy to those born May 3rd to 5th.  This has been in the ether for you since April and continues to affect you in this way until the beginning of 2019, and this once every approximately 82 year transit is bringing a gentleness, a sensitivity, a spirituality and a humanitarian sensibility to your door.  It is also excellent of the arts, particularly music and film.  Your heart centre is very important now. 

Pluto is currently, as he has been since March 2016, finalising his trine to you Sun, if born May 7th to 10th.  This transformative, regenerative and self-re-invention influence from Pluto is truly inspiring in terms of philosophical understandings, insights, travel, long distance associations and academic study.  It also gives courage, strength and belief in self and joy.


GEMINI

The summer month of August is very good for Gemini’s mind.  Communication will be important to you in a very positive way. However, your ruler, Mercury does move retrograde on the 13th and remains such until the 5th September.  All of you will need to be aware, particularly if born up to June 3rd, that family communications especially, can be the source of frustration.  Lack of clarity and uncertainty is underlined. 

After the 6th, if born up to May 29th, there is a need to have a little self-control over excessive spending and indulgence.  After the 26th, heart and mind combine for all born up to May 28th. Communication skills will be excelling

Mars however, is for those born May 28th to June 18th, giving a real constructive assertiveness to your thoughts and your speech and your communications.  You are a good negotiator.  Arguments will rarely be lost and you will enjoy a good debate.  Energy is strong and constructive.

Also, for all born June 6th to 13th, Jupiter is bringing blessings of optimism; positivity, travel, happiness, creativity and love life and affections are underlined.  A new confidence and optimism is in the air. 

However, Saturn is once again haunting those born June 11th to 13th, as he did at the end of December 2016, early January 2017.  For some weeks, there will be a sense of some block, restriction, a need to re-think goals and reality checks around situations and people that need to be taken seriously.  It is also a time to be aware that you need to look after your body and get rest and not push yourself.  Delays now offer a good reason to re-assess plans.  Just don’t lose confidence and you will see people very clearly, warts and all.

Uranus, however, is still inspiring those born around June 19th to 21st and he will do, on and off, until May next year.  Quite simply, he is inspiring your desire to work with others for the greater good, bringing confidence in your own understanding, insights and need to have interests in life that reflect your inner intuition.  Friends will be catalysts for change and you are a catalyst for others as well.  You are being awoken and you are being enlightened to yourself and to others.

Finally Neptune is still bringing a note of caution to those born around June 3rd to 5th.  Idealism is strong, but if you are in the wrong job, you may find that you are longing for something better.  The need for creativity, the arts and nature is strong, but whatever you do, be careful that you don’t fall for anybody who is less than totally sincere and certainly avoid any attempts at sleight of hand, particularly at work.


CANCER

Finances may well be a healthy focus this month and be aware that from the 13th, with Mercury retrograde, that you think very carefully before you speak or write, or send an email etc.  Make sure that your words are totally clear. 

Before the 26th, Venus is in your sign.  This can only enhance your charms, your charisma and love and affection invades your life more than usual. 

Jupiter, currently in Libra, is bringing for those born July 7th to 15th, a sense of well-being, comfort and happiness, but also extravagance and possibly a little over-reaching, particularly connected to domestic issues, real estate and home.  Enjoy. 

Uranus, however, is still creating restlessness and the unpredictable in the lives of those born July 20th to 22nd and has been so doing since late June and will not be completely finished with his journey until May 2018.  This once every 42-year square to your Sun is bringing particularly restlessness and unpredictability in your working life.  It is a time where the need for change is strong and it may be forced upon you, or you may be choosing it, but either way, acknowledge it is something that ultimately will liberate you, even if the initial disruption is a little unnerving.  The time has come to be kick started into a newer, more appropriate future for you.

Neptune is still being very kind in his once every 84-year transit to the Suns of those born July 4th to 7th.  Since April 2017, still strong and with you until January 2019, there is a sense that your gradually evolving into an emotionally intelligent and more sensitive being. Your heart centre is stronger than ever, your idealism, your creativity and your empathy and sensitivity to others, particularly the downtrodden and the vulnerable is significant now.  Being near water, nature and through inspiring travel you are growing and heart centre is undeniable.

However, if born July 9th to 11th, Pluto is in his final lap of a transit that only happens once every 165 years; and which started in March 2016 and is going to be over by end of the year. This can involve an experience of confrontation with someone that has undoubtedly brought you to be in a stronger position, through your ability to handle it wisely.  Keep squeaky clean, draw boundaries and if necessary, walk away. 


LEO

Your month; and therefore there is a desire to be centre stage and to shine.

With Mercury now being in Virgo and retrograde from the 13th, there is however, a need for you all to be aware for the coming three weeks that finances may well be subject to confusion and misunderstandings in dealings.  Keep squeaky clean and crystal clear. 

Venus moves into your sign on the 26th, affecting those born up to July 30th.  For this group, from that date, there will be an added dollop of love and affection in your life and your own warmth and charm will be significantly greater than usual.

Mars is also in your sign this month, which one has to be a little bit cautious of, particularly if born July 29th to August 20th.  For this group there is a distinct need to differentiate between assertion and aggression in attitude.  You are determined.  You are ambitious and you are driven on all levels that can be very constructive, provided motive is good and ruthlessness is avoided.  There is however a chance that it is someone else who brings over-assertiveness to your door, but one has to ask if one has attracted it. 

Jupiter is benevolent now if born August 8th to 15th.  He is bringing wisdom, support, luck, positivity and confidence. 


Saturn is being supportive in a different and constructive way with maturity and discipline and reality if born August 13th to 15th.  Hard work will pay off; as will obligation and duty to those one loves.

Uranus is also inspiring now; and been since the end of June; and will continue to be, on and off until May 2018, for all born August 20th to 22nd.  Long distance issues, study, travel, legal issues and academic pursuits can be truly inspiring and life changing and awaken you to new understandings and insights which can be liberating.  Other people may well be catalysts for this and relationships can certainly bring a refreshing input into your life.  Many of you will be able to see a bigger picture beyond your own subjectivity.

 If born around August 7th-9th the lunar eclipse on the 7th, may be quite an important dat . A time of eruptive endings or insights that can be quite powerful in affecting your insights and realisations about self and others.

If born around August 21st, the solar eclipse on the 21st will potentially bring a sense of a rejuvenation of the new and where difficult issues can get catapulted somehow away. This can feel like a sort of safety valve.



Virgo

Some alone time can be beneficial this month and privacy and behind the scenes dealing can dominate. 

However, Mercury, your ruling planet in your sign, does move retrograde from the 13th and stays that way until the 5th of September.  That would imply that all born up to September 5th need to be particularly conscientious about the possibility of delay, disruptions in communications, misunderstandings and failed messages.  All communication systems can let you down.  Keep on your toes. 

From the 26th, for all of you, friendships and collective activities with others can be really inspiring and love and friendship can somehow combine or morph from one to the other.  You are popular.  Enjoy.

It may be worth pointing out that because Mars is in your 12th House this month, it is important not to sit on any resentment or anger and let is seethe.  Get it out calmly to the right person, in the right place, at the right time. 

Saturn however, is a little tricky now, as he was indeed last December/January, if born September 13th to 15th.  This position will feel quite frustrating to this group.  Obligations, responsibilities and reality checks are around you, possibly to do with family and domestic situations.  You need to look after your health and pace yourself, as tiredness and lack of confidence can get the better of you.  Don’t see the cup too much as half empty, but with some hard work and discipline and facing reality, you can actually make progress, even if it is delayed. 

Neptune is currently, as he has been since April this year, opposing the Suns, in his once every 165-year transit, of those born September 5th to 7th.  This will be around you until January 2019 and a long subtle transit of Neptune does bring changes.  When it’s an opposition you have to be very aware that you are much more vulnerable to other people’s dishonesty or lack of black and white motive than usual.  You are also likely to put people on pedestals, or be drawn to victims.  You are not seeing people clearly or in a realistic way.  Check the credentials of everybody and get advice from others who are very grounded.  However, you will long for harmony and beauty, but be careful about negative escapist behaviour. 

However, if born September 9th to 11th, you will have a new found sense of empowerment, transformation, belief in self and confidence, notably creatively and in love life.  Enjoy.  This influence is with you until January of next year and has been building.


LIBRA

Your mind is sharp this month and communications abound in a successful way, but like everybody, after the 13th, you need to be aware that delays and blocks are actually opportunities to re-think things.

Before the 26th, Venus in your sign is a little warning that one has to be careful about any sycophantic behaviour in your working life.  Your charms can help, but don’t overdo it.

After the 26th, if born up to September 30th, friendships can be very benefiting and love life too can inspire.  Working with and for others is pleasing. 

Mars is giving a boost of energy to those born September 30th to October 21st.  Your leadership skills and your ability to coordinate other people and your determination to achieve your goals, particularly if they involve large groups will be admirable and effective.  Energy, on all levels is strong and constructive.

Jupiter, still in your sign, is now blessing those born October 9th to 16th.  Excellent for travel, good times, celebrations, happiness, and luck; and at the very least if there are any problems in your life, he will bring a mitigating factors.  The cavalry arrives.

Even Saturn is currently bringing, for those born October 14th to 16th, a sense of maturity, courage, determination, hard work and insightful wisdom, which brings bonuses later. It is deferred gratification. 

Uranus, however, is strongly now in his once every 84 Opposition to the Suns of those born October 21st to 23rd, a new sense of turbulence, possibly in relationships.  Other people are affecting you and are catalysts for change, disruption, for awakening and enlightening, even if it is uncomfortable.  This need for change is inevitable and although it may come from outside you, it is flagging up a destined time to realise that a new chapter does wait; and it will not be over until May of 2018.  Keep flexible, see this as a journey and don’t lose faith in the fact that it will kick-start you into a new, better future.  Be patient and calm.

However, if born October 10th to 12th, you are in the final chapter, over by the end of the year, of a transit from Pluto since last March 2016, which has been disruptive.  Endings of chapters have been possible and you have needed to emancipate yourself in a certain situation that was oppressive; and provided you are squeaky clean, did not in any way abuse power or sink to manipulative means, this will ultimately be a time of finding your true strength.


SCORPIO

Your personal reputation and public standing is flagged up this month.  Ensure you don’t let over-confidence or arrogance blemish that.  Be aware that from the 13th you will all need to be acutely aware that communications can go astray and blocks and restrictions on plans are possible, so double check everything; and particularly when arranging plans with friends.

Before the 26th, Venus in Cancer augurs extremely well for you all in terms of love life and travel going hand in hand.  Fulfilment and happiness is also possible in academic pursuits and love life can be very rewarding. 

After the 26th, if born up to October 31st, have a caution that you are not disingenuous at work, in order to gain favour. 

Mars in Leo is bringing for all those born October 31st to November 20th, a rather over-assertive impatience, and impulsive quality.  Again professionally; and equally others in authority may have a rather over-aggressive attitude towards you.  Stopping and counting to 10 before responding will be helpful and do also look before you leap.  There is tremendous fixity in your life now; and an inability to compromise.  Flexibility, as hard as it might be, could be your saviour.

 For all born around November 5th-7th, Neptune has, since April 2017 and will, until January 2019, been bringing a journey into your consciousness of greater empathy, sensitivity and huge artistic inspiration. Caring and putting other people’s needs first will have become important.  Your heart centre has expanded, appreciation of music, the arts, the sea, nature have all possibly taken you by surprise in their intensity.  Almost psychic connection with others will have rewarded relationships, not least in love life and with children. 

Pluto, your ruler, is also continuing until the end of the year his journey that started in March 2016, for those born November 9th to 11th.  This journey has brought insight, power, a forensic mind, truth telling, impressive communications, power over others in a positive way, regeneration and transformative insight, which has brought you respect.  Remember you are the agent, not the owner of the power.


SAGITTARIUS

August is a particularly good time for your sign for vacations and travel.

Mercury moves retrograde on the 13th which does suggest that after that dates you may need to pay much attention to ensuring that all communications are thoroughly understood in your working context.  It also suggests blocks and delays in achieving and communications between the 13th and the 5th September.  Don’t assume people have got messages or you have received them.  Frustrations can abound, so get things sorted before the 13th

After the 26th, if born up to November 30th, harmony and love is in the air, particularly when travelling and great appreciation of study of the arts.

Mars is also very complimentary now to those born November 30th to December 19th.  Passions are aroused.  Determination and constructive energies, particularly connected to study, long distance issues and legal issues.  Your forthright views are sound and get listened to and you can make a difference. 

Jupiter is also harmonious now for those born December 7th to 14th.  Friends and social life figure strongly and happily.  Your goals are given a boost.  Confidence is aroused and optimistic positivity.  Remember your ruler is Jupiter. 

Saturn, however has been in your sign for many moons and is now re-visiting the Suns of those born December 12 to as he has been doing since late July and will continue to be in that position until the end of September.  For this group, there is a challenge to face facts, deal with reality, work hard on a very practical level, step up to the plate and create an infrastructure for yourself through hard work, based on reality, but get rest.  Look after the body and don’t let the challenges defeat you. 

Uranus is inspiring however to those born December 20th and 21st.  This transit will be around, on and off, until February 2019.  Once in every 42 years this energy affects you and is brilliant for awakening you to your uniqueness, your creative abilities and your true humanitarian spirit.  You don’t do convention. You do inspired individualism and it can set you free. 

However, if born December 4th to 6th, keep grounded, keep real.  Do not trust too much and know you are going into a much more spiritual phase of life.


CAPRICORN

You may have to dig deep this month into complex issues to do with relationships, intimacy and finances.  This is not a time for superficiality. 

After the 13th, until September 5th, it is a good idea to double check all travel arrangements and long distance communications and legal issues, as delays, frustrations and confusion can be in the air.  Having said that, your mind, provided you take those issues into account, is sharp.

Before the 26th, all of you have Venus going through your Solar 7th House bringing bonuses of love and affection from others and you give as you receive.  People are a blessing. 

However, if born January 6th to 13th, be careful not to be over confident and ensure that you do not bite off more than you can chew, or show any arrogance in your career.  Don’t over-compensate for deep-rooted lack of confidence with a veneer of too much.

Uranus is, in his once every 42 years Square to your Sun, affecting all those born around January 18th to 20th and will be so doing on and off until March 2019.  This will bring restlessness and a desire for change, particularly domestically and unexpected events connected to home and family are possibly on the cards.  Rebellion, a need for the new, away from conservatism or total safety is rising in your being.  Your own individuality is being strongly stimulated.  Just be careful that you do not act rashly or impulsively just for the sake of change.  Consider carefully.

Neptune however is very inspiring if born January 3rd to 5th.  Inspiration from the arts and spirituality is strong, as is increased sensitivity to others.  Your psychic side a developing and your empathy and compassion should not be underestimated.  This is with you until early 2019.  Use is to develop your creative and spiritual skills and sensitivities.  Your heart is expanding.

Finally, Pluto is continuing on his long journey to conjunct the Suns of those born January 7th to 9th.  This long journey, every 248 years, has been underway since March 2016 and is in his final lap, over by the end of the year.  For this group, there is a sense of power, change, and transformation, possibly meltdowns followed by phoenixes out of the ashes. Remember to use your power wisely for the greater good and be careful whom you mix with.  Draw boundaries and walk away if necessary. 


AQUARIUS

This month focuses on the significant others in your life and they may be taking the lead and that’s ok. 

With Mercury retrograde from the 13th to the 5th September, it is very important that you ensure that your business arrangements, particularly financially, are clear-cut.  Frustrations and delays abound however.  Reconsider strategy and make sure you have clarity with those you deal with, particularly financially.

After the 26th, all born up to January 27th will be experiencing the potential benefits of cupid, but at least the good hearts of those around you.  People bring good things. 

However, Mars is in your opposite sign, affecting all those born January 26th to February 16th.  This entire group need to have an awareness all month that other people may well be on the warpath, either in response to your assertiveness or for no apparent reason.  People will not be pushovers. Stop and count to ten before you speak or communicate.  Be sensitive to this potential; and also do not assume you can be assertive to others in a way that may tip into aggression. 

Jupiter however is very friendly now to all born February 4th to 11th.  It is a great time for travel and international dealings, also for study.  Your mind is high in its consciousness and your sense of adventure is strong.  A feeling of luck and confidence is yours.

Even Saturn is positive now for those born around February 10th to 12th.  He is bringing constructive hard work to your door, which brings results, particularly in a leadership role and when working with others.

Uranus too is very inspiring and he is your ruling planet after all, to all those born around February 17th.  This will be continuous until around February 2019.  He is making your mind more intuitive and incisive with eureka moments and allowing your true Aquarian originality and uniqueness and insight to really shine.  Your humanitarian side and your desire to fight for the greater good is underlined successfully. 

If born around February 4th, the lunar eclipse of the 7th may bring quite a strong impact from others as they reveal issues or show behaviour that is possibly a bit of a revelation.

Also if born around February17th, the 21st could reveal a situation where you have a chance to be liberated from problems, albeit in a way that takes you by surprise and maybe a bit left field.


PISCES

Your work and your health is supported this month.  Do be aware that from the 13th until the 5th of next month, when Mercury, the planet that rules your 7th House moves retrograde, there is a great potential for misunderstandings and confusions in relationships; and frustrations and blockages, so try and ensure all necessary communications are achieved, if possible, before the 13th.  You may also have to re-think strategy after the 13th, which will ultimately serve you well, particularly connected to dealing with others.

Before the 26th, all of you will have a lot of fun, enjoyment, with the potential for romance flourishing and creatively and artistically you are on high form, with great inspiration and dealings with children and offspring; and fertility is sound.

Saturn is continuing to be a little troublesome for those born March 11th to 13th.  Extra responsibilities and difficulties weigh heavily on you, particularly in your professional capacity and you may feel tired and things are very hard to break through to success.  Take it easy.  Be grounded.  Do what you have to do, but get rest.  Face facts.  Be real.  Be mature and you will achieve a lot, even if it does feel a little bit of an uphill struggle.  Be honest about what you need to re-think.  Goals may have to be modified, but not abandoned. 

Your ruler, Neptune, currently in your sign (every 165 years) is now in his very rare visitation sitting on the Suns still of those born around March 4th.  This has been underway since April and is a very slow journey and is not completed until January 2019.  Because this is such a powerful transit, being your own planet, it brings a tremendous underlining of all Pisces traits, both negative and positive.  Hugely inspiring, hugely sensitising, even more than you normally are.  It brings a tremendous potential for spiritual growth, creative growth, empathy, compassion, and caring and even psychic qualities.  But beware the negative which is over-idealism, deception, self-deception, escapism, even addictive behaviour and hyper-sensitivity to the point of pain psychologically.  Emphasise the positive.  Avoid the negative. 

Finally, Pluto is continuing in his journey of empowerment of the Suns of those born March 7th to 9th.  This brings intelligent insight, powerful communications, ability to work well and effectively and influentially with others and able to transform yourself and others for the greater good.  This is destiny and is with you continuously until the beginning of next year.  Enjoy.
