Your strongest asset is Courage.

Better security is in the picture now as Jupiter has entered your Sun Sign. Indicators point to positive dealings with education, travel and the law. Much in your stars point to a spiritual/psychological trend that brings understanding and clarity about yourself as well others. For the next year, however, you will have a tendency to go over-board. Try to balance activities and desires. Some changes in health care may be stressful, but the benefits will be good. A returning situation has not improved.

January 22 - Feb 21 and Aquarius Rising
Your stars are a bit divided over the next six months. Money that you thought was lost will return through legal or banking systems starting in September. Processing will take time. Travel, local and foreign, will become more of a trend in your life as well as working with new technology. A family situation may cause concern, but does not require action from you this year.

A spiritual current is calling you back to your deeper and perhaps former practices. Your greatest ability is Perception.
February 22 - March 21 and Pisces Rising
Your stars have cleared away some of the challenges in your life so that you can move forwards towards your goals. You do need to keep one foot on the ground while your eyes are focused on a cloud, however. Some practicality and structure from a Taurus or Venus ruled person will help to put your ideas into reality. Finances could hold you back from moving too fast and this is a good check as once you like something, you tend to go overboard. September brings new friends and many creative Pisces will find themselves in successful theater and music productions. Your greatest strength is in your ability to Give.
