Energy flows, but rhythms feel out of whack this week for Pisces natives. Instead of playing along, you can step aside and observe others and their drama.
The week begins on Sunday, January 17, with the first of a series of intense aspects. Jupiter in Aquarius, in your house of spirituality, makes a square to disruptive Uranus in your house of communication. Today, you may wake from a radical dream with pictures floating in your mind that can feel disturbing. The underlying message is about change. You're heading toward a breakthrough, not a breakdown. It requires you to be still for a moment to hear the message of the Universe (tough to do in a whirlwind of energy and activity). Today, shut off electronic devices, even if it's just for an hour. If possible, be in nature, and if not, sit by a window to watch the snowfall.
On Wednesday, January 20, the changing energy intensifies with a pair of aspects giving you a skeleton key to exit your jail and a map to figure out where to go next. Mars in Taurus conjuncts Uranus in your house of communication. At the same time, Mercury makes a trine to the North Node. The first step to getting out of jail is to recognize you have no jailer but yourself. Time to change how you think. Thoughts become things, and what you're focused on manifests in your life. If you're only thinking the thoughts that other people gave you or advertisements of what people want you to buy, you crowd out your own visions—time to find your vision again.
This intense week ends on a high note like an opera singer shattering glass. On Saturday, January 23, Mars, the planet of action, squares Jupiter. At the same time, the sun in Aquarius conjuncts schedule-minded Saturn. Now it's time to put your plans on paper. And there is the need for accountability. Find someone in your life who will hold your feet to the fire. If the people in your life encourage you to just sit on the sofa and eat rocky road ice cream (which is arguably the best flavor of ice cream so therefore extra tempting), consider finding a new group of people who will support your growth. Or you may consider a "carrot and stick" app to keep you on the straight and narrow.
