Pisces in Love

Ruled by mystical Neptune, Pisces is the most romantic sign of the zodiac. You have the stuff of romance flowing through your very veins. From the moment you heard your first fairy tale you were caught up in the magic of those princesses locked in towers and princes rescuing them. Somehow, you have never quite rid yourself of the notion that there is a special someone for you, a soul-mate, someone who will go through fire and water to claim you. And if anyone can find their soul-mate, you can. The trouble is you have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find him.

In your quest for the Holy Grail, perfect love, you can go through many disastrous love affairs and possibly a marriage or two. And you suffer a lot. You give your all to the man you're in love with; you trust him and abandon friends, jobs, ambitions, and a few principles too, in order to keep him. Caught up in the hormonal rush of lust, you lose all sense of perspective and convince yourself that this is HIM - you have a repeat prescription for rose-coloured specs. It may take years before you realize that you made a mistake.

There are several routes out of the maze of illusion, betrayal and rejection - one of them is to turn your watery nature into ice, thus living a celibate existence and channelling your loving energy into other pursuits; another is to martyr yourself to a troubled and unfulfilling marriage, pining and withering on the vine. Many celestial Fish opt for either of these two courses. But there is a third way. By accepting that all human beings are flawed, and that we only truly find the heaven in another person once we have exited this earthly realm is a good start. No one person can make our lives for us: we must do that ourselves, but we may find someone who can share the journey with us. In working with the reality of a relationship and tossing out the dream factor you could find that you do indeed have a prince of a guy. And if anyone can find him, you can.

The Piscean Man

Pisces men come in all shapes and sizes but they have one thing in common, they will all have a tale of tragedy to tell you. They are great story-tellers, serious romantics and very difficult to pin down. When you go fishing for a Pisces man, you'll need sonar equipment and a wet-suit: he is elusive and slippery, and he'll drive you mad. Truth is very much as he sees it at the time, so don't expect him to be reliable and consistent. He's not the most faithful of men, either, but he has a reason: you. You didn't care enough or you did something that he cannot fully explain, but you caused it. Of course, he has many redeeming qualities: he is deliciously sexy, sloppily sentimental, kind and caring. He needs a woman who will earth him and make sense of his dreams. If that's you, go to him: you'll never have a dull day in Neverland.

Who's For You

You are not the type to be limited to only a handful of signs but as a general rule of thumb you will be drawn to signs that belong to the Mutable family - Sagittarius, Gemini, Virgo and Pisces. The Sagittarian really floats your boat - this man has all the confidence, fire and spirit of adventure that you crave. He is very commitment shy so getting to the altar can prove lengthy and circuitous, and once you're together he may totally blow your fuses when it comes to security and fidelity, but at least you'll never be bored. Mr Gemini has other ways of keeping you guessing: it's this man's mind that fascinates you, and his dark side, yet in the long run you may find he is too emotionally unavailable and verbally cruel. Virgo is your opposite number so you have many similarities and many sharp differences, all of which go to make you deeply attracted to each other, and able to sustain a long and abiding union. Anther Pisces is either a dream come true or a total nightmare - it depends how well you understand yourself and how much projection there is involved in the relationship. Taurus and Capricorn are two other compatible signs - they stabilize and contain you.

Life Love Money The Year Ahead for Pisces

The dispiriting Saturn-Neptune alignment of 2016 will be dwindling as the year opens, and with Venus in your sign you may sense you have put your troubles behind you and are facing a new and beautiful dawn. And with a solar eclipse in Pisces on 26 February, that new dawn may well be confirmed by the events of the first half of the year. Nonetheless, Saturn hasn’t left the solar system so there will be the occasional set-back and you will need to focus on practicalities as opposed to dreams. Indeed, despite lack of success with one of your greatest goals, rather than give up and diversify you should put even more fuel into achieving it. Early March and late September are times of break-through. Health and fitness are also top of the agenda – 2017 is the year of living beautifully.

Although the main focus of the year is on career and material matters this does not mean love and relationships are not an important part of your life. It’s just that your worldly progress must not be sacrificed for the sake of an all-consuming passion or someone who is causing you anguish and standing in the way of your success. If Saturn has taught you anything at all it is to value yourself so that others will value you. January and September are months when love can be found, rekindled and set on a lasting course – the signs of Libra and Aries could prove significant here. On the other hand, events of late January and early October could bring a relationship to breaking point. The important thing is to see partners for who they are and to know that they will never change. Only you can change.

Jupiter will be helping you become richer, and certainly providing opportunities for you to get yourself out of a financial hole. For some Pisceans a promotion or better job will increase your income; for others investments and property transactions will do the same, and for a few finding the right help with monetary troubles will set you on course for success. A top job can be yours, so believe in yourself – don’t wait for someone to pluck you out of obscurity, go strut your stuff. Start your bid for success in January, and should you receive a rejection or a job is lost, don’t be discouraged. There is success for you in 2017. Acquiring or increasing your computer skills could prove useful and inspiring others, whether through teaching, mentoring or writing, could open the way for a new career.
