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

Do you have a yen to travel? Are you looking to break new ground, career-wise or in your personal life? If so, you’re going to love 2018. With Jupiter transiting the zone of far horizons, you’ll go far, whether you take a boat or a plane to do so or you plough your energies, emotions and talents into your ambitions. Yes, it might be time to consider you will be happier and better off in new territory, even a whole other country. Clearly not every day of the 365 is going to be a hymn to happiness, but you have a much clearer field astrologically-speaking. So, do not put off till tomorrow what you can do in 2018. On the downside, friendships could be tested and a long-term alliance broken, and this may not be the year to go on holiday with close friends. Health could require a little more attention, and minor injuries or anomalies should be dealt with speedily. Indeed, that’s something of a metaphor for the year: seize that moment.

The older generation has a bearing on your love life this year. Now, in some cases this may mean that the opinions of older people, especially family members, will affect your decision making, and in other cases that single Pisceans could be more attracted to older partners. One way or another, age is a factor. It is also increasingly important for you to have a spiritual bond with a partner and to share similar goals. If these factors are not in place, many Piscean relationships will struggle. It will be the 4th-6th March birthdays who have the most to gain or lose from Neptune, but if you fall truly, madly deeply for someone or your partner lets you down in a major way, this planet has got you in its misty tendrils. The best times for love to blossom or mature are from 10 February – 4 March and 10 July – 5 August. And if any sign is in the spotlight on Valentine’s Day it is you.

You know the old joke: “How do I get to Carnegie Hall?” “Practice, practice.” This sentiment could have been made for you this year. Efforts of the past yield results, and each time you get knocked back, pick yourself up and try harder! Jupiter is on side, encouraging you to have dreams but to build them in reality. A contract with an international company or in a distant place could be on the agenda, and the areas of education, publishing, law and travel have much to offer if you are considering re-training. Indeed, 2018 is an excellent year to go “back to school”. The contacts you make, and the groundwork you put in should pay off in 2019. With Uranus exiting the financial zone from mid-May to early November, your income will be more stable, and you should make more money in the second half of the year. Still, this is not an excuse to blow the budget.
