There is a strong message coming to you from the heavens now and in the coming four weeks; you need to do something about the rhythm of your days. You need to make some changes to your daily life and then way it ticks over. Whether it's about a job change or better self-care routines, or about just making some life changes, think about what you would love to do to change your life and then ... follow that impulse.

Month of July

If during the year you've been tossed about by various turns of loss or distress, then, this month, you're more likely to come to a better understanding of what's happened and how to move forward. Possibly your confidence in your own good fortune and bright future was rocked, but you're on your way to getting that back.

Fortunate Jupiter moving direct on the 10th will surely help your recovery from recent losses and dips in fortune. You will likely experience a better sense of emotional and financial balance. Sensual Venus' move into earthy Taurus a few days later will also help you feel more grounded.

What might be at first disorienting is nebulous Neptune's retrograde on the 16th for five months. However, Neptune's apparent pull away from the Earth by retrograde might signal how you're more obliged to be clearer minded about how to manage risk and trust your intuition better.

As you return to centre, you will probably feel like you can reach out more to others, both to discuss what's been happening inside and the renewed visions you have for your future, whether that's for love, your career or personal development goals. Be careful not to tackle too much as you perhaps feel even better than your old self. Use experience and your gut to outline well-defined steps and priorities for how to move forward. Your passion can fuel your next set of adventures over the long haul if you don't burn out attempting to do everything at once.

If you've read your astrology books, you will know that Pisceans are supposed to be the romantic, poetic dreamers of the zodiac - the ones who have visions and are somehow mystical. Lovely! But my fave Piscean fact is that uber-business man Rupert Murdoch is one of you. He hardly comes across as some sort of floaty poet BUT does that guy have vision or what? Yes, don't be mislead by the tales of Mystery and Imagination which surround your sign, you are also someone who can deal very well with the modern world.

But about that Mystery side of you. Even if you don't talk about it with your friends, you're almost certainly aware that you're what psychics call 'sensitive' you can pick up vibes (very handy in business as well as in your personal life). You are usually considered the most otherworldly of the zodiac, even if others don't know that about you. Pisces does also rule music, drugs and wine.

Pisces is the imaginative minstrel, the lady with the crystal ball that fills with a mist, the generous drunk, and the artist. Pisces is associated with not one, but two rulers, Jupiter and Neptune. Jupiter is the avuncular Father Christmas of the zodiac who makes you give with your heart, mind and money. He's also the planet who allows money to slip through your fingers. Neptune is the planet who confuses us all, and in whose fog we find delightful Piscean mysteries. You're a mutable sign you move as the tide takes you. Your symbol is of two fishes swimming in opposite directions, which is a lot like you.

You can be a business person, with a tough veneer and a sharp suit, while underneath it all is a Jupiter/Neptune softy - a mushy person who is sometimes a little too susceptible to coercion and suggestion, always open to enjoyment and perhaps even sometimes a little too self-indulgent. And maybe plays guitar. You can calm people down just by walking into the room and your generous spirit pervades any gathering.

A Water sign, like Cancer and Scorpio, you are rarely the one with the sharp tongue or the raised voice. You're far more likely to merge with something soft and slither away from trouble than to head for it well, most of the time! You give people hope and faith when they're lacking it. You have visions that few can match, which is where your psychic gifts come in. Listen to your intuition because it has much to teach you, just as you have much to teach others about using their intuition. Whether or not you get it, Pisces is a super spiritual sign. Part of the reason for this is that your sign knows how to make sacrifices for others when required.

You have lesser boundaries than most and you will give a part of yourself for others. But you're nobody's fool and can be effective in business. It's important to be honest and to avoid playing the martyr. Help others to learn patience by showing them the value in going with the flow.
