First I will address the Sun in Aquarius because the house that Aquarius rules in your personal natal chart is where you should be acting and reacting just like an Aquarius, which is why this information is so important. The the final few paragraphs will be how it pertains to your Sun Sign. It is important to undertand how the energy of the Sun operates under various conditions (Sun Signs) so that you can better understand how it will operate in your own Life.

When the Sun moves into Aquarius there is favoritism toward group efforts. Now this would be the best time for Companies to offer a moral building retreat for their employees. There is probably no better time of the year to get the employees together for a motivational pep-talk. In fact, since Aquarius is the visionary of the zodiac because they rule 'the future', hopes and wishes, this is also the best time to go on a spiritual retreat or a vision quest. Geez, you just can't beat the energy!

The energy during this period of time has everything to do with making friends, communicating within groups, networking in social media or at social gatherings or building new associations and contacts. This is a 'group effort' mentality when the Sun moves into Aquarius. This is the time where you will notice there is an overall concern or a universal concern where a meeting of the minds comes together.

All too often the Aquarian motto of "I know therefore I am" is mistaken for just knowledge. Certainly there is an element of knowledge with this sign as Aquarius who tends to know a little about everything. There is no doubt about it, these are the people you will want to stack your table with at the next trivia night. But there is more to "I know therefore I am." Remember, Aquarius is the social butterfly of the zodiac, so it's not just want they know, it's WHO they know. Aquarius has connections! The glyph for Aquarian's is represented by two curvy lines. These lines are often mistaken for water and it is thought that Aquarius is a water sign, which is NOT true. Aquarius is an air sign and when the wavy lines are pictured with the symbol of the woman, the woman is pouring energy (or knowledge) out of the vessel and not water.

Aquarian energy is rather impersonal emotionally and is well known for being rather aloof and distant. It would be fair to say that Aquarian energy is detached, not attached. Remember, they have a wide circle of friends so attempting to cling to them is not going to work. Aquarian's will shake you loose if you lock on. Further, asking an Aquarian what they are doing or where they have been is even a bit too clingy, so having your own Life and not clinging to their Life is probably the best idea for all concerned. Even though Aquarian's are distant emotionally their energy sure can be like swiss cheese, meaning it is laced with holes. Picture a circle of people holding hands. The larger the circle gets the more holes in the circle. Small circles of people are tighter, large circles of people create big gaps and this is what makes an Aquarian's energy so easy to infiltrate. Anyone can get in, even those who shouldn't.

Stimulating conversation with an Aquarian is a required or you will be discarded. It's as simple as that. Aquarius certainly has the chops for stirring up a revolution or creating a rebellion against the establishment. Freedom in all forms means everything to an Aquarius, which further feeds their 'do not cling to me' posture.

Aquarian's have friends from both sexes so if you are the jealous type, do not, and I mean DO NOT expect them to give up their male or female friends for you. The Aquarian will give you up before they cease contact with a friend. If an Aquarian says they are just friends, that is absolutely the case. At the same time, when it comes to Aquarian's in a relationship, their absolute perfect mate will be their friend first and then their Lover and then their marriage partner. Aquarian's need to be married to their best friend.

The Sun in Aquarius is opposing your 7th house of contractual relationships. This house also rules unions, lawsuits, contracts, partnerships, marriages, agreements, and open enemies with the public.

The Sun may be in Aquarius but it is moving through your opposing 7th house of relationships, which is naturally ruled by Libra (the sign of balance, Love and harmony); therefore, you are shining when it comes to relationships, partnerships and the like. This can either reveal itself positively or negatively depending on where you are in the relationship. You will learn more about yourself through relationships and partnerships than any other thing in your Life. Which actually is Good thing when it all boils down. You should not treat this as opposition or a tug-of-war. Instead you should be looking for the balance in the relationship.

This is a great time for you to review your old relationships and "see" what you have learned through those couplings. It is imperative that you learn from the old in order to embrace the new. If you have lingering doubt, resentment or anger with regard to a current or past relationship, this has to be cleared in order to improve upon the relationship you have now or in order to call a new relationship to yourself. And yes, of course, there is a very strong possibility of meeting someone new. If you are already coupled up, then it is a perfect time to re-negotiate or work through your differences.

The flow for your Solar Chart (your Sun Sign) is -- Leo would be on the 1st house and then you would follow the signs in order for each house. Virgo 2nd house, Libra 3rd house, Scorpio 4th house, Sagittarius 5th house, Capricorn 6th house, Aquarius 7th house - Sun in Aquarius, Pisces 8th house, Aries 9th house, Taurus 10th house, Gemini 11th house and Cancer 12th house.

Mercury stands for the intellect, common sense, cold reason, commerce and business. Its qualities are fluidity and versatility. Its position and aspects tell us about our communication and learning habits and our modes of thinking. The house that Mercury occupies in your Natal Chart is where these characteristics will manifest the most.

When Mercury, the planet of the mind, enters the Sun Sign of Aquarius, this is not only a meeting of the minds, it is mental energy that is open to new thoughts, ideas and experiences. More people will be trying new things during this period of time. There is a search for answers that are based in Truth. The traditional accepted way of doing things is tired, old, boring and may not be working anymore and it is time to change gears and do them differently. After all, Aquarius is THE MOST inventive and innovative sign of the zodiac. Folks, if you are looking for originality or a time to be original, it is when Mercury is in Aquarius. That's because Aquarius is naturally aloof and distant; therefore, they are not attached so they are never really surprised by much. What some might find impossible to believe or understand, Aquarius can shrug it off and say, "Yeah, I can understand how that could be possible."

There is such a mental change in energy during this time that you may see yourself getting rid of old things or changing your approach or lifestyle. Out with the old and in with the new! Aquarius is the sign of 'the future' therefore the mind is set firmly on the future. Whatever house is reflected below for your sign, there is a futuristic focus on this particular subject matter.

This is a really great placement for Mercury because Uranus is the higher octave of Mercury, which is the natural ruler of Aquarius. In other words, Mercury is very comfortable here as if it is in its exaltation. Mercury rules the mind and the intellect and Aquarius is one of the three intellectual air signs (Aquarius, Gemini and Libra). Since this placement acts as though it is in its exaltation (higher form) this increases the need and desire for Good communication that transcends human understanding and turns more Universal and ethereal. This is why Mercury in Aquarius is often seen as telepathic and that of a mind reader. Notice how you will be able to communicate with fewer words or even with the nod of your head. You may find yourself joining or engaging in a group effort where there is truly a 'meeting of the minds'. This is because Aquarius rules groups, memberships, friends, socializing and organizations. Yep, a true meeting of the minds.

Mercury in Aquarius is opposing (challenging) your 7th house of relationships, partnerships, business partners, unions, contracts, lawsuits, marriages, agreements, and open enemies with the public.

Mercury has increased your ability to communicate with partnerships and relationships. This means communication between TWO people. It takes two to tango and it usually starts with communication. If you are coupled-up, this is the time to discuss and communicate on a deeper level with one another. If you are single, you will be more objective and unemotional in matters of the heart. This does not mean you will not care. It just means you will have a better head on your shoulders while deciphering Love. Mental stimulation in relationships is heightened. This is also a great time to ask for a second opinion. It does not mean you should doubt your instincts; although if your instincts tell you to ask for a second opinion . . . then by all means ASK! You may also sign a new contract or strike a new deal during this time. Scroll down to read your Venus Opportunity.

The flow for your Solar Chart (your Sun Sign) is -- Leo would be on the 1st house and then you would follow the signs in order for each house. Virgo 2nd house, Libra 3rd house, Scorpio 4th house, Sagittarius 5th house, Capricorn 6th house, Aquarius 7th house - Mercury in Aquarius, Pisces 8th house, Aries 9th house, Taurus 10th house, Gemini 11th house and Cancer 12th house.

The Venus glyph is the upright symbol of Mars, where Venus is feminine (yin) energy and Mars is masculine (yang) energy. It is represented by the circle of spirit over the cross of matter. It represents the spirit overcoming matter through Love. Venus is the yin side of our emotional nature and rules Love, beauty, harmony, affection, appreciation, sensual, vanity, flirtatious, art, music and aesthetics. The house that Venus occupies in your Natal Chart is where these characteristics will manifest the most.

First let's talk about the meaning of Venus in the sign of Pisces. Venus is the planet of Love, romance, pleasure, relationships, self-worth, dignity and all things beautiful. Venus is like the Greek root phil- or philo- which means to have a Love of or strong affinity for. So when you think of Venus in your personal natal chart think "Love of" whatever sign is involved.

Pisces rules the 12th house of silent suffering and solitude. Pisces represents what goes on behind closed doors that you don't want others to see or know about you. It presents reflection, prayer, meditation, the silent sufferer and introspection. Pisces rules spiritual healing and faith healing. It rules areas behind closed doors where people are not openly seen such as hospitals, prisons, jails and institutions. This is where people silently suffer. This is also very monk-like or cloistered nun behavior. Pisces rules the psychological mind and mental health.

Pisces is naturally ruled by Neptune, the planet of dreams, visions, altared states, drunkedness, stupors, alcohol, drugs, drug habits, gases and gasoline, fairytales, fables, chemistry, bluffing, black magic, the abnormal, cheating, betrayal and hydration . . . just to name a few things.

So you can see, when you put "Love of" or phil- in front of any of these words, there will be an affinity for these things. Venus in Pisces can cause people to be so drunk in Love that they Love at all costs, which translates into unconditional Love. This can show up two ways 1) I Love you unconditionally and 2) I Love you unconditionally, so go ahead and do anything you want to hurt me and I will still be here Loving you holding onto your ankles as you are walking out the door. Venus in Pisces is absolutely hands down, unconditional and punch drunk Love. Venus in Pisces Loves even when it doesn't make sense or isn't healthy. It's unconditional.

Venus is exalted in the sign of Pisces, which means it is the second strongest placement for the planet. It's often looked as being a 'guest' in this house. Have you ever heard anyone say, "Mi casa, su casa." In Spanish this means, my house is your house. An exaltation is saying, "Welcome, take your shoes off and stay a while." Venus is definitely on a 'high' right now just like it is under the influence of cupid's arrow that is laced with an aphrodisiac. Hmmmmmm, what happens when Venus moves out of Pisces into Aries and this aphrodisiac wears off? Venus in Aries will be saying, "What about me! Love me!" I wouldn't get too wrapped up in punch drunk Love right now because it can turn out to be bittersweet. And I sure as heck would not be mixing alcohol with Love right now. Absolutely NOT! Venus in Pisces will be part of a Stellium in Pisces the last two days of January and the first few days of February. If you cannot handle one glass of wine during this transit, then you don't need to be pouring the first glass to begin with during this transit.

The sign of Pisces is incredibly sensitive in every sense of the word and because they are so sensitive then their sonar (intuition) is incredibly accurate. Pisces is sensitive to another person's plights and a suckerfish for a sob story. Since they are sensitive physically and emotionally, they are sensitive to alcohol and drugs. Again, watch the level of booze you put into your body because it will mess up your intuition and take you off your game. Not to mention put you further into a state of punch drunk Love. Pisces is also very benevolent, so this transit could make you over-benevolent and over-giving.

Venus in Pisces can produce some incredibly lonely feelings as well. Remember, Pisces rules all of those places where people are alone. So an individual could Love so much during this transit to the point of loneliness because the other person is unable match their affection. It can certainly lead to disappointment to say the least. While Venus in Pisces may be exalted, I find it nothing but a damn fairytale and punch drunk. Wake up folks, the Love pheromones are getting to you. Snap out of it! Stay alert!

One thing that will occur during this transit is some darn Good writing including spiritual, song and poetry writing because the mind is really diving deep and going behind the scenes to get in touch with deep seated emotions. This is fantabulous writing energy for going out into the ethers without having to really smell it.

Venus in Pisces is moving through your 8th house of transformation, sex, legacies, insurance, spouse or partner's money and other people's money, spirituality, stocks, bonds, taxes, inheritances, wills, surgeries, and astral experiences.

If you are single, secret Love affairs are not going to work for you. Any relationships that you are engaged in should always be on the up and up. You may even be secretly attracted to someone, yet have not shared or expressed this attraction to them. Either way, it is a secret. This attraction may be very intense. If you find yourself communicating and flirting via e-mail with someone you really do not know, there may be secrets shared without having full knowledge of the other person. This will expose you on a whole new level where you will learn more about yourself, especially your strengths and vulnerabilities.

Those of you who are already coupled-up, your physical relationship may become more intense, passionate and magnetic. The relationship has the ability to take on a deeper meaning that will have a powerful long-term effect. This could make changes in you that cause an emotional transformation. The 8th house is about transformation and regeneration; therefore, your relationship can change for the better if you choose to move in that direction. Scroll down to read your Mars Opportunity.

The flow for your Solar Chart (your Sun Sign) is -- Leo would be on the 1st house and then you would follow the signs in order for each house. Virgo 2nd house, Libra 3rd house, Scorpio 4th house, Sagittarius 5th house, Capricorn 6th house, Aquarius 7th house, Pisces 8th house - Venus in Pisces, Aries 9th house, Taurus 10th house, Gemini 11th house and Cancer 12th house.

Check out the Mars Moving Through the Signs Calendar. Dates are listed from 1920 up until 2015.

First I will address the Mars in Pisces and then the final few paragraphs will be how it pertains to your Sun Sign. It is important to undertand the energy of Mars and how it operates so that you can better understand how it will operate in your own Life.

Mars is the planet of assertion and drive. Mars is aggressive, impulsive and ram-rod's its way through whatever it wants and it will do without your permission and quite comfortably I might add without a guilty bone in its planetary body. Mars is the testosterone in the chart. It will describe the degree of force that we go after what we want. Mars will tell us whether we are forceful and confrontational or if we prefer to sit back and watch. It will also reveal what motivates us and what desires drive us most powerfully. The house that Mars occupies in your Natal Chart is where these characteristics will manifest the most.

Mars in the sign of Pisces is not a very strong placement for Mars because Mars is the planet of drive, ambition and force. It will drive right over you if you are in the way. It will honk its horn if you don't press on the accelerator fast enough when the Light turns green. It is harsh, it can be crass and it is impulsive. Well folks, Pisces is a Lover, not a fighter. Pisces is NOT looking for trouble. Pisces is naturally ruled by the planet Neptune, which is the higher octave of Venus, the planet of Love, beauty and all things wonderful and kind. So having said that, this is actually a very weak placement for Mars, unless of course someone is drowning and then Mars in Pisces will kick in and rescue that person. If I had a child with Mars in Pisces, I would make certain that kid was on the swim team. Mars is much stronger spiritually than it is physically. So spiritually speaking, this is a VERY STRONG placement for Mars.

Pisces is actually a very spiritual sign and always concerned about the past. In fact, Pisces lives in the past more than any other sign because they rule the 12th house of the past and karma. This is why you will ALWAYS hear a Pisces drop the 'k' word (karma). Pisces' are very deep individuals because Pisces rules the deep blue Ocean. Pisces is also THE MOST intuitive sign of the zodiac. This is why I always say to behave like a "Tune-ah-Fish" when the Moon is in Pisces. Use your sonar! Pisces is also THE MOST impressionable sign of the zodiac, which is what makes them flip-flop back and forth so quickly because they really do see both sides. They are able to do that unlike others. It is a gift, not a curse. It is a strength, not a weakness. Those who cannot flip back and forth and see both sides are likely fixed. Being fixed is awfully controlling when you think about it. There is nothing wrong with flipping when you have an eyeball on each side of your head and have a 360 degree view! It's a gift! And right now it is a gift for us all with this Mars in Pisces transit. During this Mars in Pisces transit we should all tune-in to a higher frequency and work our intuition. Use this aggressive Mars action to tune-in!

"Intuition is when God is speaking in-tu-it
and the 'it' happens to be you." ~Dr. Loretta Standley

The more unattractive side of Pisces is the victim-like behavior. Cancer is the martyr and Pisces is the victim. Both Cancer and Pisces are THE MOST fearful signs of the zodiac, although Pisces has Cancer beat on this one. Both are also THE MOST intuitive signs of the zodiac, although Pisces has Cancer beat on this one as well. Even still, if that fear and that guard were let down then the intuition would be over-whelming and the intuitive flood gates would be open. Pisces is a water sign and if the flood gates opened, then a flood of opportunities would come crashing in. Haven't you ever watched the store openings on Black Friday where people are just waiting for that opportunity? The doors open and the money just rolls in for the Company and the opportunities just roll in for the consumer. This is the way intuition works. When you allow fear to hold you back, you get nothing. If the Black Friday example, if fear is present then you would not even leave your house much less drive to the sale. Doing nothing begets nothing. One day I was talking to a client who I had been pushing to investigate another part of her profession. Over the past six years I kept reminding her of this other side of her profession. One day she called and the minute she opened up to it and applied for another position, the offers came in from everywhere. She became overwhelmed with opportunity. Isn't that funny! Fear can be so paralyzing as it stagnates water. Pisces is a water sign. Open the flood gates folks!

Back to the victim behavior. This is the most unattractive characteristics of Pisces energy. During this transit I would not advise you to step into 'poor me syndrome' because victimizing yourself will not win over friends and influence people especially with Venus in Pisces through February 19, 2015. People will just 'tune' you out and swim away from you. The only way victim posture works for Mars in Pisces is when it feels threatened. A halibut lays at the bottom on the Ocean and just looks like part of the Ocean floor. A rockfish looks like a rock. Neither fish starts thrashing about letting every fish in the Ocean know that it is weak and/or suffering. Are you kidding me? That's how fish get eaten by other fish. People that post their victimization on social media, especially during Mars in Pisces are going to suffer more until they learn to stop calling attention to their victimization. I have a South Node in Pisces in my chart and at no time do I EVER get permission from the Universe to blab about 'poor me' and how hard my day went or if I'm suffering in any way, shape or form. The only reason why I spilled the beans on my food poisoning last week was because I thought I was going to be down for the count and offline for a few days. The South Node in Pisces is the silent-sufferer and never talks about their suffering. Mars in Pisces, is also a silent-sufferer. And a full-blown Pisces is a silent-sufferer. Rising Sign Pisces, is a silent-sufferer. That's why you never hear me complain about my Life because as a South Node Pisces I don't have permission to blab about suffering. I can't! It breaks the rules. I can write about it later, after I have gotten through it but not as I go through it. The same goes for this Mars in Pisces transit. Why in the world would you let the world (or your enemy) know your weakness?

Again, Mars in Pisces is Lover, not a fighter and it retreats instead of confronts. This is more of a spiritual placement where you should be working that intuition of yours and being aggressive about that rather than flipping your tail and turning the other way and not receiving anything. The flood gates will not open that way. I guarantee it! Tune-in folks, tune-in and become a Tune-ah-Fish!

Mars is all about AGGRESSION and DRIVE! Mars in Pisces is moving through your 8th house of the wealth of your spouse or partner, spirituality, insurance, legacies, other people's money, stocks, bonds, taxes, inheritances, wills, surgeries and astral experiences. It is the house of regeneration, and covers death, sex, legal matters and metaphysics.

Keep in mind that this is the house of transformation and you will find that you will have to transform some part of you before this transit ends on February 19th. This means that your either your behavior, attitude, actions and reactions will have to make changes and adjustments. Embrace this thought right now so that you will not be forced to transform through some other means. It is a great time to re-adjust, re-examine and re-think your old belief systems and see if they still resonate with who you are today. If you need to change your actions to match your beliefs, then do it. Scroll down to read your Chiron Opportunity.

Chiron is all about discovering your WOUNDED HEALTH WITHIN! For all Leo's, this involves your 8th house of other people's money, joint resources, coupling resources with another including sex, death, rebirth, transportation, insurance, taxes, wills and beneficiaries. Chiron is an asteroid and is called, the wounded healer. Chiron, the Wounded Healer, represents our emotional and physical wounds. It reveals a part of us that is hurt, small and vulnerable. Chiron encourages us to heal our wounds, and then look beyond personal realms, to see the suffering of others, and to become teachers and healers. The house that Chiron occupies in your Natal Chart is where these characteristics will manifest the most.

There is a thought that we create our own suffering because we continue to cling to material possessions, behaviors, beliefs and ideas that we need to release in order to move to our higher-self. Ahhhhhh . . read that sentence again for a deeper impact. Wherever you find Chiron in your Natal Chart, it represents where you suffer and how you can release your own suffering to move forward in Life.
