2018 horoscope for Pisces

Written by Absent


Love: Dreams at your Fingertips ... and in Your Heart!
In 2017, Jupiter paved the way for change. No question of being complacent but instead of adapting to the events that have shaken you up and accepting the transformations, which most of the time, have been imposed on you! In 2018, you aspire to broaden your horizons and apply the lessons and understandings you have learned from your recent (and past) experiences in order to try to broaden your horizons, push your own boundaries and why not Ami Pisces realize your ambitions in love (among others)! In 2017, whatever your desire to evolve and fully enjoy the present moment, you have run into imponderables, difficult obstacles to identify and some disappointments that may have left you with a bitter taste and sharpened your distrust or your self-doubt and the ideal you pursue.

In 2018, almost everything seems to come together for your intuitions to be good counselors and for the cosmos to be complicit in your quest. Thus, Ami Pisces whether you are looking for that special someone or want to give a second wind and height to your couple, this year you can surf lightly on a state of affairs that listens to you and is favorable to the realization of your desires, and why not, an ideal that you pursue for a while! Only the natives of the first decan will have to contend with Saturn, which risks delaying some of their projects or compelling them to rationalize their future prospects a little, so that it fits better with reality and takes more account of their environment!

1st decan (February 19th - February 28th): Patience!
Last autumn Jupiter invited you to turn a corner, to evolve the link or to achieve your ambitions in love?! Yet, since late December, you have to deal with Saturn, which may be casting a shadow over your plans. Count on this austere planet, in 2018, to bring you back down to earth. Do you have big plans? Why not start laying the groundwork. However, you will have to comply with certain rules, accept deadlines and suffer some restraints that will sometimes give you the feeling that you are alone in the world. Fortunately, you can count on Uranus between early February and mid-July to develop your creativity, find new ideas that can free you from an entourage which is weighing you down and then see a different future. You can build it slowly but surely, by innovating and leaving room for your desire to cut some ties or habits, which restricted your perspective and your prospects! It's up to you to be up to the task and to be very serious in your initiatives while seizing all the opportunities that come within your reach, on the fly and to move the lines at your leisure! At the end of the year (from November 8th, 2018), Jupiter will propose that you take on and accept new social responsibilities and stay on the front lines on the professional front. So, this year, try to build your future without blinking but without trying to rush the movement too fast! Venus will boost your influence and help you win votes between February 10th and 18th. Take advantage of this period of grace to convince those around you to adhere to your projects and support you in your realization. This delicious planet will allow you to send your messages smoothly between March 31st and April 8th and make nice in order to try to achieve family unanimity between April 24th and May 2nd. Between May 19th and May 27th, there is room for love and seduction. You will then shine with all your fire and should not leave anyone insensitive to your charms. In July (between the 10th and 19th) take a step towards the other, open the dialogue and do everything possible to embark with the other in your dreams. In September, (between the 9th and 29th) Venus will give you an enthusiasm and an increased willingness to push back some limitations that prevent you from realizing some of your projects. You may have to wait until December (between the 2nd and 17th) to really turn a corner and finally open the way. Saturn will rclear off on the 8th and you will finally get rid of the slowness that may have restrained your desire for fulfillment!

In a Relationship, you aspire to project yourself in the long run and last fall, Jupiter gave you hope for the best and in particular to be able to challenge yourself. Among other things, that of building a better future together, of structuring the future on a stable basis and therefore making it as sustainable as possible. Saturn is likely to put a few sticks in the wheels in 2018! Enough to probably test the validity of your plans and the cohesion of your couple. So stand together and do not try to do things too quickly. Uranus will blow a new wind on your projects between February and mid-July! So to succeed and above all to pass the Saturnian test, temporarily reduce the wind in your sails. Patience and obstinacy will pay off and allow you to build your plans and weld your couple for the long term!

Single, autumn 2017 has given you a glowing future and made you want to embark on new adventures? If you want to give shape to a recent story or build a future to your liking, you will have to hold your horses a little bit, in 2018! Indeed there is no question of building on the wind but instead of following the rules enacted by Saturn, master of time! Uranus will happily blow a wind of freedom and fantasy between early February and mid-July. You will have the opportunity for different and stimulating encounters that will encourage you to free yourself from the past and to build a respectful future, which includes as much your desire for stability as your thirst for novelty! In December 2018, Saturn releases its pressure. You now know what you need and what you can do in order to be happy and build on solid bases!

2nd decan (March 1st - March 10th) : Your Asset… heart
In 2017, the situation has shaken you a little and forced you to deal with disruptive elements that could thwart your desires and induce a rather unpleasant atmosphere of frustration to bear? All this is finished? In 2018, you will enjoy delightful currents that could put a little fun in your life and some rumba in the air. Indeed, everything seems possible in 2018, where the planets agree and put some “oomph” in your loves! You will be able to enjoy the grace of the cosmos, which should greatly facilitate things and lift you from the ground in early December 2017 but also in January when love lurks and where your heart could well boom and reconnect with great thrills! You will undoubtedly get closer to an ideal of life in May (around the 25th) and in August (around the 19th) where all the conditions will then seem to work together for you to find that special someone or to turn a corner, happily toward nirvana! Also count on beautiful openings in September (around the 12th)! You could then reach your goal in 2018 as long as you accept to transform yourself, learn from the past and give up the fantasy of fusional love for the reality of a more mature bond. Pluto now occupies the field of your theme related to the future but also to the relationships you have with your group (whether your friends, a social circle or other). No question, then, to live an idyll cut off from others. You will need to find someone who will direct your life as a couple towards a goal to be fulfilled for the benefit of all or lead your current duo towards a more inclusive, more participative version of the relationship. Venus will very often be your ally in this exciting quest. Notably in January where you will have a wonderful launch pad to jump into the deep bath of delicious and sensual emotions. Venus will boost your power of seduction between February 18th and 26th but do not abuse your charms to try to control everyone except at your own risk (the 17th and 25th)! You will know what to say and what to do between April 6th and 16th to please your entourage and (between May 2nd and 11th) to bring harmony to your home! Venus will boost your libido and your desire to rekindle the flame with your crush between May 27th and June 5th and invites you to listen to them and pamper them without reservation between July 19th and 28th! It will be time to embark for the land of love, to take off from the end of September, even if from the 5th you will probably only be able to actually take flight in December (between the 17th and 29th)!

In a Relationship, after the possible challenges and mandatory changes to be made in 2017, you will enter in 2018 a frequency field that should please you. The opportunity for you to tighten the ranks around the same vision of the future (mission, common goal) and a strong desire to evolve your duo in the right direction; that of a complicity found because it is fed by a new project of life! We can not see why 2018 could prevent you from loving yourself, dreaming together and understanding each other five out of five!

Single, you will come into 2018 a little depressed from a year that forced you to grow, to transform and to withstand shocks, separation and symbolic mourning that have however had the merit of making you aware of what is possible or not, achievable or not. If your fantasies have taken a blow (to the fins) you will have the opportunity, in 2018 (and in fact since December 2017), to reconnect with an ideal that, freed you from pretense, could well open the door to the right path. If there is no question of living your love affair and experiencing a romance cut off from the world, you could then have the opportunity this year to forge a strong bond with someone who will help you broaden your horizons and will offer you to share a dream, a mission and a vision of the future that should inspire you and make you want to continue ... and why not commit for a while?

3rd decan (March 11th - March 20th): Openings!
In 2017, you may have been primarily mobilized on the professional front where you managed to play your cards right and move the lines despite tensions and transformations (social status, remuneration, job etc.) to accept willingly or not! If Jupiter boosted your libido and sharpened your desires, not sure you really had the time to answer and fill them! In 2018, you can count on Jupiter to widen your horizons on all fronts and why not, to make significant encounters or give your couple a chance to gain a second wind between the 21st of January and the 25th of April but also between September 19th and November 8th, 2018 where this giant planet of the zodiac could help you to turn a corner, even as fast as the speed of sound! Especially this spring, when combined with Pluto (in April), who should offer you some great opportunities to connect with your partners (whether your friends or your lovers) around a shared vision of the world and common ambitions for the future. Pluto, should indeed (between February 6th and July 13th) encourage you to change your goals and give you other desires, other aspirations probably less centered on exclusively personal goals and perhaps more centered on universal or idealistic ones. Venus will boost your thirst for love and your lover between February 26th and March 6th, your desire to communicate harmoniously with others between April 16th and 24th (a blessed period to meet or deepen the bond). Bet on May (between the 11th and 19th) to get closer to your social circle and make every effort to improve your exchanges within the clan. Venus will exalt your charm between the 5th and the 13th of June, where you will have every chance to hit the ground running or sensually rekindle the flame. Between July 28th and August 6th, the dialogue will be advised and promoted if you actually consent to listen and hear what you are told. You should end the year in osmosis with your partner, decided to evolve and grow the relationship and if you have not yet found that special someone, prepare to surpass yourself, in order to achieve your goals and captivate whoever you want!

In a Relationship, you will benefit repeatedly in 2018 (but mainly in the spring) from a beautiful launch pad to steer your future and your relationship in the right direction. You will want to move the lines, invest together in a future that inspires you and you can count on Pluto, in 2018 (and in the years to come), to revitalize your projects or even transform them completely for they follow as close as possible to the evolution you have accomplished together!

Single, In 2018, you focused on realizing concrete goals that may have moved you a little further from your emotional pursuit. If you do not lack the want to fully enjoy life and the present moment, you can expect in 2018 more effective support from the sky, in order to achieve your aspirations and find with whom to share them. However, you will need the chosen one to be ready to follow you where you want to go. Indeed, Pluto risks (especially between February and July) transforming a little your vision of the world and your projects and future prospects. No longer a question for you to live in isolation but to leave your bowl so as to connect to a cause, a mission or an ideal that is gradually emerging in your mind. You will seek to find that special someone who will love you enough to participate in your business and adhere to your need to follow a destiny that inspires you and exceeds you!

Advice from FREE Horoscope :

A year that should leave good memories for most of you and maybe bring them closer to a vision of love and the future carried within it! However, provided you agree to open the hatches, to transform yourself, to abandon sometimes an old version of the relationship to your partner and the others to evolve and not miss your chance, in 2018, to reach for the moon and why not, live a love that meets your expectations and desires.

Social Life

Social Life: On the Right Track!
In 2017, you had to face some changes which were not always gently made or that forced you to question some of your assets? Your projects may have been hindered by a social environment or an entourage resistant to your ideas, perhaps undecided to give you the funds or power you needed to act as you please? In 2018, you should enjoy cosmic conditions more favorable to your professional expansion that will allow you to expand your horizons.

Nothing should really oppose your rise to power or your achievement. Only the natives of the 1st decan will have to deal with Saturn who will require rigor and conscience in the elaboration of their plans and will be able to embark on the adventure only after careful reflection! As of November 8th, 2018, you should be able (by December 2nd, 2019) to reap the benefits of your initiatives, to turn a corner, Ami Pisces and to impose yourself in your area of expertise, your profession and on the social level then valued by the celestial bodies!

Advice from FREE Horoscope:
A dynamic year and for some an enthusiasm that makes you want to surpass yourself and the means to achieve it. If the first decan drags their fins a little, rest assured, you will come out of a slightly demanding year, strengthened in your projects and your status. As for the others, let them take advantage of a situation that allows you to surf rather lightly on the promises of a sky that should provide you with multiple opportunities to open the way, to chart your course, to broaden your horizons and thus in the end ... to rejoice!


1st decan (February 19th - February 28th): Stay cool… as Much as Possible!
It's up to you to manage, as consciously as possible, the trials and tribulations that you will not fail to meet this year if you want to avoid the expense of following your emotions, which are not necessarily good advisers. So, prefer to invest in a punching bag or a subscription to a gym rather than return any anger or excesses against you, thus putting yourself unnecessarily at risk! A Word to the Wise ...

2nd decan (March 1st- March 10th) : The Fish have Fed...on the Lion!
A year that supports your expectations but also your form and your morale. Take advantage without exaggerating, however, of this enormous potential to gain a second wind after 2017 was a little destabilizing. You regain your health and you remember to maintain it, in order to go far and wide ... and high!

3rd decan (March 11th - March 20th): Capital to Maintain!
A year that should help you grow and allow you to surpass yourself and fulfill some of your hopes, or at least see a new future more in line with the evolution you have achieved. Provided of course that you take care to properly maintain ... the mechanics!

Over the months

1st decan:
A first month of the year that does not invite flirting and makes you face responsibilities that you must accept if you want to move slowly but surely in the right direction and anchor your future on a solid foundation!
2nd decan :
You start strong and in January, should be able to lay the groundwork for rewarding relationships that are friendly or romantic and a future that inspires you. A first month of the year to fully exploit in order to take off and begin to realize what it is you want!
3rd decan :
If the month starts in a whirlwind and you get some real benefits, then make sure not to abuse it to ask for more than we can grant you. Just a little measure is recommended both in business and in love, in order to finish the month in style (the 25th) rather than on edge (the 28th?)!

February :
1st decan :
A good month to anchor your initiatives and projects. A little serious probably, but you will manage with the certainty and awareness that you use in your personal interests, without neglecting the collective dimension of your affairs!
2nd decan :
To assert your ideas and defend your colors, assume that in February the best will be the enemy of good and that to win the vote around your inspired proposals, it will be better to pass your messages smoothly rather than starting and maintaining polemics!
3rd decan :
A month that favors quiet and effective initiatives but does not allow you to pull the rug out from under your social or intimate partners who would hardly appreciate that you acted behind their backs even if you do not have the purpose of deceiving them!

1st decan :
A month to unroll without expecting too much, putting into perspective the restraints that stand in your way and finally forgetting about them as soon as possible!
2nd decan :
No showers to predict in March where you pursue a dream and seem determined to communicate your vision to an entourage that should fall under your charm! You will take the opportunity to go fishing for support (financial, material) and you will be right!
3rd decan :
A month without sudden showers that is rather very bright and favorable to your ascent? Do not hesitate to go ahead without losing control of the vehicle at the end of the race!

April :
A month where patience is highly recommended. Enough to let go of everything while holding your horses. From the 15th, you will see more clearly and should then be able to close the debate by the 27th and complete the month more serenely (the 30th)!

2nd decan :
Rather than taking a stand because you are being resisted, prefer, in April, betting on creative communication, your enthusiasm, your faith in the future and your ability to make everyone dream (the 11th and 12th), in order to turn any situation to your advantage!
3rd decan :
In April, you will not fear anything or anyone and if at first you have a little trouble winning the vote, do not be disarmed because the situation supports your ambitions in April and should certainly help you push your limits and the boundaries of the possible!

1st decan :
This month, Uranus opens up other perspectives for you, and boosts your mind, which should not take long coming up with ways to overcome the Saturnian restraints that have been weighing on you a bit since the end of December!
2nd decan :
Certainly, whether we believe you or not, or fear that you are losing a sense of reality or not, in May, you should be able to do what you like and you will not hesitate for a second to get into the adventures that tempt you and a priori ... are waiting for you!
3rd decan :
A month when, if you take yourself for the king, you risk losing your throne or at least temporarily being dethroned. So to avoid disappointment in May, agree to reduce the wind in your sails a little and lower your tone rather than doing whatever you like!

1st decan :
Bet on your charm and your eloquence to move the lines in love and family without abusing it, if you do not want your assets to end up playing against you and then leading you to error!
2nd decan :
A bit of a contrasting month, but you should be able to succeed by focusing on your charm and your current ability to convince those around you, to believe you and to follow you! Just be careful not to overestimate your powers!

3rd decan :
Venus boosts your power of seduction and your desire to love and be loved until the 13th but will not necessarily allow you to convince the other to take your word for it and follow you in future prospects that could, for the moment, be seen as a little nebulous, even adventurous. Evoke your desires without trying to impose them on anyone!

1st decan :
To avoid provoking anyone at your own risk in July, be prudent, cautious, and think carefully before acting and even talking!
2nd decan :
A month that favors your love and should greatly contribute to your fulfillment on all fronts if you do not quibble about details that annoy you on a daily basis. This could trigger useless debates that (if you entertain them) might drag on until next month!
3rd decan :
And if you enjoy July to decompress instead of looking for lice in everyone's hair or feeding endless discussions that could short-circuit your exchanges with you entourage (private or professional) in your everyday life?

1st decan :
Since mid-May, Uranus has been pushing you to develop your creativity, to try something else and get rid of certain habits that constrain your expression. Take advantage, this month, of this provocative influx to renew yourself and maybe circumvent or dissolve blockages that currently hinder your projects!
2nd decan :
Another month where you will have the opportunity to play your cards right, no matter the circumstances! You can indeed count on your inner resources and a remarkable flair to realize your deep aspirations and all this against all odds!
3rd decan :
A month that invites you to withdraw from the game to review your methods and plans? And if you took the opportunity to go on vacation?

September :
1st decan :
A month that will blow both hot or cold sometimes, so it is wise to approach it conscientiously, in order to make the most of your skills and gifts without exceeding the limits!
2nd decan :
Another golden month to fully exploit, in order to shine with all your fire and achieve feats before Jupiter goes away (from the 19th)!
3rd decan :
Jupiter could, from the 19th, keep his promises this winter and this spring (between January 21st and April 25th) or boost your thirst for power. It's time to move up a notch and to make every effort in mid-September to push your limits and aim far and wide!
October :
1st decan :
You arrive at the end of a cycle that may have experienced your resistance when faced with Saturnian obstacles and restraints. In October, keep up the hard work until Jupiter arrives to the rescue (next month) and Saturn finally moves in December!
2nd decan :
A fall month rather ... seasonal? Your protections are moving away? Try to live on your reserves for now rather than calling the devil who would not fail to answer you ... pronto!
3rd decan :
A month that encourages your initiatives and your audacity. So, it's time to explain what you want and plead your case before those who could and should help you move mountains!

November :
1st decan :
A month to exploit in order to shine with all your fire, without being tempted to make too many sparks. Saturn gave a real existence to your projects and tested your patience? So take advantage of what you have learned and sometimes endured in 2018, to lay the foundation of your next success!
2nd decan :
Ambitious and determined to rally the votes you need to achieve the plans you care about. You will know what to say and what to do in November to excite the crowd until Jupiter propels you into the limelight in late December!
3rd decan :
A month that relays your initiatives and invites you to act for the moment undercover but no less effectively, in order to achieve your plans! This is the moment to use your flair, your intuition to turn a corner and launch your nets!
1st decan:
A last month of the year when Jupiter boosts your social radiance, where Venus promotes your emotional fulfillment and where Saturn tells you bye bye? Only positive things and the assurance of ending a year, sometimes difficult to manage, certainly in good conscience but also ... in beauty!

2nd decan :
A beginning of the month to manage in good conscience, in order to avoid eventual slip ups that you will go through and finish rather happy with yourself and confident in the future!

3rd decan :
A last month of the year that revives a process (started between early February and mid-July 2018) subtle but no less important for the future! No reason to fear these transformative energies, which in December, encourages you to move forward ... Meanwhile Jupiter (next February) will take care of pushing you into the spotlight!

In 2019,

From November 8th, 2018 until December 2nd, 2019, Jupiter urges you to realize your social ambitions and puts you centerstage and in the limelight. You will then have the heart to shine and make or strengthen your place in the Sun! New ideas come in, you develop an originality, which could encourage you to try something else or push you to renew your entourage and your daily environment. In any case, you will benefit from solid assets to serve an ideal that you keep close to your heart and to create a buzz if you do not abuse your powers to lay down the law and give (at least a little) some floor to the others !

My advice

The trigon formed (in 2017) between Saturn and Uranus has apparently opened the door to constructive reform. We learned from the lessons of the past and changed our tune. The loop should be completed around November 11th, 2017 when this aspect, conducive to thoughtful but daring transformations, will make its final lap. Then? If the year 2017 has been rather turbulent, sometimes electric, tense and violent but also a source of hope and possibly a harbinger of a way out of the crisis; 2018 should confirm this step forward and propose to us to raise the debates and open the hatches!

Count already on Pluto who shook us up a bit in 2017, provoked social movements, discontent, deep dissatisfactions, a feeling of injustice and a climate of generalized trickery (so many secrets and affairs revealed in broad daylight). Pluto should in 2018 greatly help us finally get our heads out of the sand! Let us therefore envisage some positive openings in all spheres(economy, reduction of unemployment and public deficits) from January, but also in April and September when everything will not yet be put in place and completed but where a smiling future could begin to point the tip of his nose! However, Pluto, a great "lord of metamorphoses", is acting slowly but surely, and at work in the sign of Capricorn since 2008, he took the time to move the lines, often at a high price!
Neptune has evolved in Pieces since February 2012! In this sign of which he is the master, the deep-sea planet favors awareness, great humanistic impulses and also facilitates ideological and fundamentalist derivatives and great confusion of all kinds. If it can help "drown the fish," Neptune can also light, inspire and raise up.

From the beginning of December 2017 (but also in May 2018 and August 2018), it invites us to broaden our horizons, to move towards a higher, less narrow vision of the path to be taken and perhaps to become a better person. Some limiting barriers or beliefs begin to yield to the evidence that a new paradigm is definitely put in place. Going backwards now seems impossible and undoubtedly undesired by everyone who understands the interest they have in taking this passage, to join the movement in 2018 rather than stick to your guns! Hope may be reborn in the heart of man? Their destiny is to be built, it belongs to them but can now only be inscribed in a perspective of genuine solidarity, participation committed to growth and responsible maturity!
In 2017, Uranus played the role of public agitator but if the planet of great changes in life destabilizes, upsets, provokes, exasperates and breaks our landmarks, it is always for our own good and pushes us out of the woods, to dare for novelty. In 2017, in agreement with Saturn, it played its part and offered us new choices, to reverse our codes (labor in particular) and to take calculated risks! Present in the rather warlike sign of Aries since 2011, it has often sowed chaos and launched many hostilities here and elsewhere in the world but it has finally traced a new path and made us understand that the future belongs to those who love, tolerate and include rather than those who discriminate, criticize and kill in the name of absurd ideologies, based on despair more than on the exalting recognition of our human dignity! Between May 15th and November 6th, 2018, Uranus will point his nose in Taurus before settling on March 6th, 2019 in this sign of land more placid than warlike. What to expect from this incursion in 2018? A more concrete exploitation of the potentials discovered in recent times? Between August and the end of September 2018, Saturn and Uranus will coexist unceasingly. The opportunity to anchor some recent advances? Not without some stirring and friction, but if we manage to lay the groundwork for a more solid, creative and positive world, then it could offer us some sustainable ways of expansion!

Saturn invested, on December 20, 2017, in the sign of Capricorn. It is no longer a matter of embarking on great adventures or opening new doors of consciousness but of anchoring, in 2018, our findings and initiatives in the long term! The changes put in place in previous years must now lead to concrete measures and a new way of life must emerge. If we can count on this austere planet to build on solid and secure bases, do not hope too much that it operates in joy and good humor. There will be concessions to be made, efforts to be made in order to turn lead into gold, but we will probably be well aware that no miracle will happen without having to roll up our sleeves!

Jupiter interfered in Scorpio on October 10th, 2017 and will only leave this demanding sign in November 2018 (the 8th). The new path (sketched in Libra between September 9th, 2016 and October 10th, 2017) is taken and the promised changes are underway. But if the transformation of our society now seems inevitable, let us wager that it will not always be done in gentleness. The scorpio transmutes and encourages the moult, to break the cocoon and open our wings, we must give of ourselves, stop complaining and gather strength and courage to accomplish what needs to be done for the good of everyone and for all! Fortunately in 2018, Jupiter will receive the precious support of Neptune and Pluto, great alliances that should revive the economy, boost the labor market, bailout accounts and give breath and meaning to our lives and facilitate metamorphosis! Starting November 8th, 2018, Jupiter will invest in the sign of Sagittarius, which he controls. At ease and in his (fire) element, let's bet that this giant planet of the zodiac will invite us to respect life, the world, humanity and the divine around us and in us!
