Aquarius Sun/Moon/Rising – Love is in the air for you my Aquarius friend!Saturn’smove into Scorpio is asking you to think back to 2005-2007, do you remember what you learned back then?Romance isn’t really your thing, but this month it’s on your mind thanks to Jupiter.Relationships that are not going anywhere are going to fall away, and there is one relationship that gets jump-started but not before you decide “what do I really want and what really makes me happy?”Anything is possible, including Soul 2 Soul, if you want to get down to brass tacks, besides you’re the Original Idealist, and magic happens this month for you!Be confident and tell the person you care about how you feel, yes I said “FEEL!”Big gulp!

Pisces Sun/Moon/Rising – You are the rescuer of the Zodiac, you open your arms to 2 and 4 legged mammals alike, because you care so much.But my goodness, can one person save the world?Probably not this month, so it’s time to draw a line in the sand and if the same people are still complaining about the same thing, “JUST SAY NO MORE!”Eventually they will figure it out!Most of the things you expect to be difficult will be easier than you think and the things you think are going to be easy-breezy will suffer from the “unexpected side of life.”Don’t get bent out of shape about it.In the love & romance department there’s only one question for you this month, “am I ready to commit?”Only you can answer that question and if you’re scared then ask yourself “why am I afraid to take this chance?”Yes, face your own fears and you won’t be a fish out of water anymore!This is a TREAT Pisces!
