You’ll also be attracting more positive attention.
Pisces season has been a very social time for you. You’re making powerful connections and collaborating with heavy hitters as your planetary ruler Venus connects with intense Pluto. You have no time for anything superficial or shady, and if something seems to be suspicious, you can always ask for another opinion. There are people who act totally different when they know they’re being recorded or watched. After all of this socializing, it’s time to lay low and let go of the reigns for a bit. The beginning of spring is a time to rest and recalibrate as you consider how you want the rest of 2021 to look. With Venus in a very secretive part of your chart, you’re exploring hidden desires. Mystery is attractive.
You’ve been hitting your mark with precision, and you have a lot of steam to blow. Now that your planetary ruler, Mercury, enters Pisces, you’re going to have maybe too many different directions.

There’s an opportunity to find ways around certain tasks as the sun connects with Pluto: You can cut corners, or just have insight into things that you’ve been working too hard or too much on. You gain a stronger ability to ask for assistance with something that’s not totally visible to everyone else. Once you’re able to speak up about it, something transforms. Early spring takes you out of the dark as the sun enters fellow fire sign Aries. You’re excited about traveling and learning as you journey to new heights and destinations.

You’re getting a deeper understanding of your friendships and bonds as the sun and Venus connect with power planet Pluto, allowing you to see patterns in how you attach and relate.

The sun and Venus enter Aries, your house of partnerships, and you’re going to be getting a lot more mileage out of other people. There are a lot of people that you can rely on, and relationships that you have grown to appreciate. Now is the time they take on new forms as you see them in a better light.
It’s been fun, but now it’s time to get back to business. As spring begins, your winter hibernation is over, and you’re getting things in gear to take better care of your health and chores as the sun and Venus enter your house of routine. It’s a lot easier to start something than it is to quit, so be mindful of how you use your time and direct your attention to things that are more valuable. You’re still thinking a lot about sex and parties, with Mercury in your chart’s house of pleasure, and it’s creating a lot of mental restlessness and feelings of instability in relationships as Mercury connects with Uranus. Other people are always going to do their own thing, and that’s OK.
There are a lot of new ideas around your home and living situation as Mercury enters your chart’s domestic sector: There can be excitement around trying something totally wacky and rebellious with your lifestyle and the way your private space provides for it as Mercury connects with Uranus.

You have powerful messages to send and receive, Capricorn. Conversations bring new depths to your own ability to transform yourself, to understand your fears and your hangups, as the sun and Venus connect with power planet Pluto.

Any sense of power imbalance or a need for control can be worked through as things that are usually taboo are brought to light for healing and connection.

Imagine your ideal living space, and chase after the vision.
Pisces season was a lot of boring financial stuff. You worked through insecurities, material and spiritual, and are now trying to find your crew as the sun and Venus move into Aries.

You’re attracting sweet messages as Venus enters your house of communication, bringing beauty into your reading and writing.
