Knowing that, focus on discussing your options but, for the moment, avoid commitments. Still, you can prepare. The last thing you want is to upset anybody. Raise these now, and be frank. So, experiment. Then see what happens. True, the period when Mercury is retrograde has a well earnt reputation for triggering confusion. Explore these. Some could lead to remarkable experiences, ideas or offers. Only days ago, you were hoping that the most recent version of plans would work out. From your perspective, these were the best possible option. That being the case, plunge in. However, their words and the actual situations could be worryingly dissimilar.
Tempting as it is to give them advice, say nothing.
With Mars putting you on war footing in February, Venus shifting into your privacy zone in March and Pluto turning Retrograde in your mysteries zone in April, this period is likely to be a heated and a somewhat tense time. The end of August looks likely to be one such healing time in your love life. A Solar Eclipse in your spiritual zone in June highlights once again the need to escape from the pressures of everyday life. In October, it could be your friends turn to get on board with the new you, although the Mercury Retrograde in your social zone shows a few hiccups along the way. A Lunar Eclipse in your health zone in July could be another turning point, proving to you that something simply has got to give.
Most Pisceans have one or two passions, activities that mean a great deal. But, also, you tend to embrace certain tricky situations or, on occasion, individuals who always seem to be struggling. The current planetary setup is encouraging you to review these, especially those where you give a lot and receive little in return. There is no wrong way to be honest. This is all about them, and their desire to avoid any such tricky issues. Simply raise the matter in question yourself. This is one of those peculiar periods during which what, only recently, seemed good ideas are turning out to be seriously worrying while sudden, and unsettling, ideas, offers and events are becoming more appealing with every passing day.
Sometimes the insights triggered by the New Moon are immediate. Not only do you prefer to keep your word, changes can be confusing. Yet sudden events are giving you little choice. Forget about struggles to retain existing plans.
Uranus retrograde starts on August 11, , at 6° Taurus and ends on January 10, , at 2° Taurus. Uranus retrograde brings change. Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto in Apr 29, PM, Saturn Retrograde, Saturn . Nov 1, PM, Venus enters Sagittarius, Venus Sagittarius.
Make those changes. Everybody will understand. Long ago you learnt that, when others disagree with you or dislike your plans, the less you say, the better. Instead, you take action, quietly and, sometimes, behind the scenes. Only weeks ago, you were discussing appealing but seemingly unrealistic new ideas. Since then, not only have circumstances changed, so has your perspective on certain once solid elements of your life. For now, focus on exploring your options not solid plans.
Several changes are yet to come before you think in those terms. Discuss your concerns now. The more forthright you are, the better it will be for everybody concerned. Planning ahead may be a virtue, but judging by the clash between Venus and the planet of innovation and the unexpected, Uranus, in your birthday chart, the more prepared you are for surprises, the better. Some weeks ago, you sidestepped unimportant facts, mostly because explaining everything in detail would take way too much time.
While that made sense then, things have changed, to the extent matters you regarded as unimportant are now of considerable significance. Explain this now, once and clearly. From one point of view, bringing certain longstanding arrangements to an end is sad, if not a tragedy. The trick is to avoid lengthy discussions and, instead, quietly stop planning these. Usually the ideas or offers triggered by the New Moon are clear cut. After that, you can make lasting plans.
Recent sudden and, annoyingly, unsettling changes may not have been welcome at the time. But, fortunately, you had no choice. On occasion, your mood shifts from being the logical Virgo you usually are, to being irritable, if not actually belligerent. The sooner you calm down, the better.
This may seem a waste of time. However, as your instincts if not sudden revelations are suggesting, new revelations could mean rethinking everything. While stressful, what you discuss and decide could impose order on arrangements that were, admittedly, made in the midst of chaos.
The problem is how you can fit it all into your existing life, commitments and future plans. But you can explore a fresh approach to various existing arrangements. That might work. But recently, you unwisely assumed certain matters were unimportant. It turns out they are. Waste no time seeking out excuses. Discuss this now, with those who matter, and frankly and openly. Each event is about adopting a new approach to familiar activities, each of which will lead to breakthroughs. Ages ago, you made a promise to yourself. This is never easy and, recently, has been particularly challenging.
Still, achieving and maintaining that balance is key to so much else working as it should. The planets seem to view this from a different angle, because the setup focuses, first, on breaking up old patterns but, as much, on doing something new often, if not every day. Strange as it may seem, for now, avoid even mentioning these.
Few things are more disappointing than being forced to stand by the wayside while plans you worked hard to organise, and quite probably care about, are coming undone. The sooner you seek other options, the better. The problem is, while everything points to them at least having been behind certain problems, others were involved, too. Various crucial facts have yet to surface. The more you learn, the clearer it will be that these arrangements suit you, and your objectives, far better than you first thought.
It appears destiny is handling this for you, in the form of events forcing everybody to tackle those issues, and as a team. Be wary. You rarely think of it, but you were born under the most discreet of signs. This means you both respect the privacy of others but, also, diplomatically avoid mentioning issues you know certain individuals would rather not be discussed. Except now, you must. The individual in question is determined, and if successful could trigger problems.
Confront them now, and with uncompromising clarity. As much as you enjoy chatting with others, from family and friends to colleagues and neighbours, you always end up doing more listening than talking about your own activities. Make that your priority. This is about sticking with longstanding plans or passions or, equally, more recent promises made to yourself. Begin reviewing these. Some need to be rethought but others can do, in the process clearing the way for something new, better and more relevant. You can manage them any time by clicking on the notification icon.
