Pisces Forecast for December 2014
By Susan Miller
This will be your most important month of the year for you, for Saturn will leave your ninth house on December 23 and release you from the tension you have faced since October 2012. The ninth house, where Saturn has been located, is mainly an intellectual house. It rules the taking in of information, through study at the university or through international travel - the ancient astrologers felt that being on foreign shores would be a fine way to learn about another culture. This house also rules the distribution of information through broadcasting and publishing. Legal matters and court settlements and all immigration matters, those pertaining to passport, visa, or green cards, are found in the ninth house too. One or several of these areas may have brought you tension either consistently or occasionally over the past two years.
If you were writing a book, you may have had to delay it for any number of reasons, and that is if you were able to finish it at all. If you were an undergraduate or graduate student, your experience may have been hard, perhaps because of a certain professor who was very critical of you. If you stuck out the class (or stayed in college during the entire semester), you learned the material in a way that it would stay with you forever - Saturn would see to that. If you were in a court case, it may have been fraught with delays and difficulties. This includes trying to divide property in a divorce, for your soon-to-be ex may have found one reason after another not to bring the papers to a final stage. If you were trying to sell a screenplay or TV show, you may have found the process arduous. You get the idea. All that changes now.
Saturn is now heading to your tenth house of fame and honors on December 23, to stay the lion's share of three years, to leave December 19, 2017. Saturn will make a brief appearance back into your ninth house for thirteen weeks, from June 14 to September 17, 2015. Thirteen weeks of a visit from Saturn is a very short time, so I doubt you will encounter any new challenges. Saturn in Scorpio blends well with your Pisces sun, and that will work for you too. If you like, to be careful, during mid-year, June through September, it might not be the time to focus on matters related to those I just listed above.
Saturn will bring you an opportunity to become very famous. You will have to work hard and show complete devotion to your dream. Saturn in the tenth house works a little differently than Saturn in the ninth house - this trend will be more fun as you see your mastery over your chosen profession, and what you learn will have the potential to forever change the way others perceive your status and abilities.
If you apply yourself to all that is presented by Saturn, your effort will prove worthwhile. Saturn is a little like the ballet master with his long stick that he uses to pound the floor as he holds it upright, pointed to the ceiling - "Do it again! Again," he shouts, and all the while, criticizing tiny details that must be corrected. Indeed, Saturn will send a critic who wants the best from you, so he will challenge you. You will find the strength to measure up - even though at first you may assume you couldn't possibly do so. Rest assured, you will have an experienced person to help you learn the ropes of your new role, for you will need to understand and follow new procedures, rules, and regulations and have new standards to live up to. You will not be alone, as this person will help you, but at times, you might feel a little alone. That's an illusion, so if you ever feel that way, look up - you will see a smiling face, ready to lend a hand.
The last time Saturn was in Sagittarius and filled your tenth house of career honors and fame, it was November 1985 to November 1988. As you see, these periods are rare, and rare astrological trends are always much more noticeable, if only because you would have so little experience with them. You might be starting a new venture now, or it may come in a year. You new venture will be an important one to you and those involved with it, and will represent a new role that you've not done before.
Saturn will often require sacrifice, but it's usually something simple like wishing you had more leisure time, but the venture you will embark on will have so much potential that you will immediately see it as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. When you consider the benefits you will accrue in the end, you will be willing to give up almost anything you need to temporarily give up to be successful. This taskmaster planet does not bring rewards during your learning period, but will leave a gift by the door when he makes his final departure, as thanks for dealing with his vigorous training. If you work earnestly with Saturn, you will become a force to be reckoned with in your industry or in the world at large.
Now let's turn to another topic - your finances. Money has concerned you lately, for it has been very up and down, and you can never quite predict when news will be happy or make you jittery. Just when you thought you had a grip on your finances, a large expense would come up. Then again, you probably had good surprises too, with a lot of money coming in all at once when you didn't expect it.
A marvelous financial surprise is likely to happen on December 4, when the Sun in your fame house will signal Uranus in your house of earned income. The same day, Venus will signal Jupiter, giver of gifts and luck, from your house of work assignments. It's clear the job that will give you a large payoff will be a pleasure to do. A golden triangle will link the Sun, Jupiter, and Uranus - you could not have better aspects for career and money than on December 4, plus or minus one day.
On December 5, you will communicate impressively. Mercury in your fame house and receive a golden beam from Jupiter. This would be a great day to travel, to give a speech, to hand in written work, or to make a promise to a partner, in love or business. If you have a contract to sign, and your lawyer says it is ready for you to sign, do so today.
The full moon, December 6, will bring a home or family matter to conclusion. It may be that you rent, buy, or sell property. Or, you may hear from your bank that your request for a refinancing plan is approved. You may find the perfect piece of furniture or other item you had your heart set on acquiring, and lo and behold, it's on sale. Uranus will be in great angle to this full moon, so some sort of good news is about to come to you out of the blue. If it does not pertain to your physical home, it might have to do with your parent or someone you think of as a parent. If you have been concerned over this person's welfare, for example, you will feel gratified by the news.
If you want to buy an electronic item, for yourself or to buy as a gift, do so the day that Uranus, which rules the future, high technology, and the digital world, goes direct on December 21. It is always a plus to have a good, strong Uranus behind you when investing in an expensive electronic or kitchen appliance. Uranus has been retrograde since July 21, so when it goes direct December 21, it is news. Uranus will also sharpen your intuition, as it rules your twelfth house, so listen to what your instinct will tells you, especially in the days that revolve around December 21.
More good news about your finances will arrive on December 20 when Mars will contact Uranus. When you get the check, it will come as a complete surprise.
Over December 12-14, when Jupiter, planet of good fortune (in your house of workaday projects) and the Sun (in your house of fame) will send one another a golden beam of supreme harmony, you again will get superb career news. It may be that a project you just finished will get you strong and positive publicity for a job exceptionally well done.
You will be thinking quite about your career this month, but as you get closer to the last ten days of December, you will be able to relax and have fun. The new moon this month will fall in Capricorn, December 21, in the critical 0 degree of a cardinal sign, considered extremely powerful. It will light your house of friends / events / parties, and along with the new moon will come her entourage that will include the Sun, Pluto, Venus, and Mercury - five heavenly bodies, which is half the solar system, all squeezed into one little house. This means friends will play a huge part in your life at month's end, and chances are you will eat up this trend with a spoon.
This new moon will receive a lovely vibration from Neptune, your ruler, suggesting you will be invited to a beautiful party or have a different bewitching romantic experience. Neptune can set up quite a dream of an evening, and it would come a day or several days after the new moon, December 21. The people you meet at this event are likely to be successful and well-heeled. You may be asked to attend as part of what you are doing for your own business or employer, as your name will start to get "out there" now, and you are growing in authority and/or possibly even celebrity.
If your birthday falls on February 19, plus four days, or have Pisces rising 0 degrees, you will benefit the most from this new moon. The planets in Capricorn are all different degrees, so I feel all Pisces, of just about any birthday will notice this gorgeous trend. If you have your natal chart, look to see if you have any planets at 0 to 5 degrees of Pisces, Scorpio, or Cancer - those planets will receive golden vibrations too.
Christmas Eve, December 24, will not be a day for you or anyone else to travel. Mercury will be at odds with Uranus, and you are likely to face delays and frustrations. This tells me you must allow more time than you assume you need to travel home for the holidays. Don't cut your travel time too close!
The last week of December continues the divine social trend started by the new moon. On New Year's Eve December 31, the transiting moon will be in Taurus, so you may be invited to a fun gathering to ring in the New Year in a town a short distance away. Dear Pisces, the coming year will be a far better one than the one you came through in 2014. The universe has goodies for you, so for New Year's Eve, do what feels most comfortable for you - by month's end you may already know, you are coming into your own! It's your time to shine!
You are preparing to enter an important phase in your career. You may know about it now, or it will come up later. Saturn, the taskmaster planet, is about to enter your tenth house of honors, awards, achievement, and fame on December 23, for a two-and-half year stay. Next June 14, 2015, Saturn will retrograde out, back into Scorpio until September 17, 2015, and that will give you a breather in all the tutoring you will need to take in your career. Once Saturn moves back to Sagittarius on September 17, however, Saturn will remain until December 2017. The last time you had this planet in your career sector, it was 1985 to 1988, and you may have made a name for yourself then too. Saturn will show you how to display authority, a practicality so that you can turn your visions into reality.
From December 4, Mars will be in Aquarius, so you will be perfecting your strategy, to get ready for a big push next month, when Mars enters Pisces.
The full moon on December 6 will put the spotlight on your home. You may be entertaining over that weekend, or you may be making needed repairs before company shows up. If you were planning to cook, this would be the right weekend to call in helpers to polish the silver and make sure the linens are ready to take out. Full moons bring a lot of energy, so you will get everything done in a flash.
Life will change dramatically after the new moon December 21 when no less than five heavenly bodies will fill your sector of fun / people / parties / events and friendships. You've not seen an emphasis this strong in years, so plan to be out and about, catching up with friends at parties, drinks, dinners, and in other ways. Some of your friends are powerful people, indicated by Pluto being among the planets present, and you may get a vital tip about a position or assignment as you socialize. All five heavenly bodies will be in Capricorn, an earth sign that blends perfectly with your water sign element.
You have been working very hard, so this month, the universe will give you a rest, and let you let your hair down during the last ten days of December. It appears you may be invited to a New Year's Eve party, and if so, be sure to go. With the transiting moon in compatible Taurus, you're sure to have fun, and it may even have a touch of luxury, with beautiful foods, flowers, table setting, music, and fabulously interesting, fashionable people.
Dates to note: PISCES
Most important dates for love, meetings or actions Pisces: 3, 4, 9, 12, 13, 17, 18, 21, 26, 30, and 31.
The Sun and Uranus bring you good news on December 4, which may help you discover a new moneymaking opportunity. Do your homework to make sure it is valid plan and if it is, take that chance.
Mars moves into Aquarius on December 4, which may cause mechanical things to break in your life that you were aware were on their way out. Be prepared for that and squirrel away a little extra money, so you can take care of these incidents as they happen.
On December 6, a full moon in Gemini highlights a project on your home that you are in the process of completion. Double check to make sure of any changes you have made; it is very possible you may have changed your mind about something.
Venus moves into Capricorn on December 10 until January 4, 2015, and welcomes in a great time to socialize with people. You could enjoy going to spas and daytrips to art exhibits setup by organizations and social clubs that you belong to.
There is a new moon in Capricorn on December 21 that introduces you to a new social organization to belong. If there is a group you have thought of joining, go and ask some of its members more about what it takes to join.
On December 23, Saturn moves into Sagittarius until December 20, 2017, which brings increased pressure surrounding your career, yet could also visibly increase your status and reputation as well. Try to balance what you can, so it does not become too much for you to handle alone, get help if you need it.

P.S. for December 2014
Happy Birthday Astrology Zone!
Since December 14, 1995, 19 Years on the Internet!
I am very excited to see Astrology Zone reach her 19th anniversary!
I have learned so much since 1995, the year I started, and with each passing year I enjoy writing for you more and more.
This past year has been a big challenge for me due to my health condition,
but you stayed with me, and your steadfast encouragement helped me get well.
2015 promises to be a bigger and better year than 2014; that's good news for you.
Before I got sick, I had many surprises in the pipeline for you.
Next month I will be able to show you some of those projects that I kept moving forward,
despite my illness.
My progress was due to the kindness, and help of my partners.
The first project I was working on in January 2014, you may already know about:
It involved replacing my old apps (started in 2003) and introducing two brand new ones.
The world had changed, and it was time to write new code.
My new apps were announced in last September, one for iPhone and another for Android/Samsung. If you didn't get yours yet, they are free and you can download them now in iTunes or Google Play. All the early bugs that showed up in the iPhone app are fixed, and both the iPhone and Android/Samsung apps run flawlessly.
The graphics of my new, redesigned apps are beautiful. Happily, both new apps will resize to fit all your devices. Please check system requirements.
Once inside the app on your smart phone, you will have the option of subscribing to my longer content for $4.99 for one month or $12.99 for three months - you have overwhelmingly chose to subscribe for the third option, the yearly $49.95 subscription.
If you don't have a smart phone or if you live overseas, you can still subscribe to the same content that I write for iPhone, Android, and Samsung.
Check www.dailyastrologyzone.com for more info.
Another project we launched this year is a mirror AstrologyZone site in all Spanish. Please tell your friends about it. It's free, and here is the special URL: www.es.susanmiller.com.

Check Out the Star Map Collection by Sequin
Last March, when I was still well, I was invited by Sequin executive women to look at an idea their talented New York City Sequin Design Studio had for a collection of pendants with an astrological theme. I immediately fell in love with the various astrological pendants, and they asked me to check to make sure all the designs and keyword descriptions of the signs to be used on their site were astrologically correct. I made a few changes to the keywords, but my involvement was very minimal. (Everyone, it seems, at Sequin reads Astrology Zone!) I love the quality of these beautiful pieces. Many girls layer several of these necklaces, using various lengths, and that's a great look too.
The pendants are all made in America and handcrafted by artisans using material components from around the world, and are so well priced that I feel they will fly out of their inventory. These necklaces are gorgeous. They are made of 22K gold-plated brass with antique finish and crystal details. I was impressed with the lovely chain that the pendants come with too, as it is tangle-proof and delicately made to look beautiful when worn. Whenever I wear my necklaces, I get so many compliments.
These necklaces make great gifts, and also would be a beautiful addition to your accessory wardrobe. I quickly chose those necklaces as part of my favorite things to give for holiday gifts, or for a friend's birthday. Imagine how surprised I was that Oprah had chosen this Sequin Star Map Collection as a part of her "favorite things" in her December issue! I was so happy for my new friends at Sequin and the incredible success of this new line of jewelry. It seems Oprah and I think alike!
If you order by December 15, you will get your gift by Christmas. Readers living overseas, please order by December 10 to allow extra time for shipping. Your necklace will arrive in a pretty gift box, perfect for gift giving. Remember to think ahead for upcoming birthdays and Valentine's Day - I know these necklaces are going fast!

A New and Important Book on Fashion and Style:
"365 Style" by Nicky Hilton
Wow! Amazon tells me you bought SO many copies of Nicky Hilton's book in November!
I love Nicky's book too! Here is my review in case you missed it last month!
There are many books on the market on fashion and style, and I admit, I have bought many of them. In this new book, Nicky Hilton, designer, author, entrepreneur, daughter of Rick and Kathy Hilton, and sister of Paris, has created a completely original, honest, and remarkably wise book on style. It comes complete with many color photographs, and in it Nicky shows you ways you can upgrade your own fashion style from good to style icon level. The goal is to sharpen your personal style by looking within, not by copying someone else's style. Nicky gets you started by showing you some of her favorite style icons, but only to get you thinking. She gives many stories and examples from her own life, and she makes you enthusiastic about going through your own wardrobe to find ways to amp it up. The title of the book refers to Nicky's suggestion that you consider 3 aspects of your lifestyle, and choose 6 staple items of clothing and 5 essential accessories. Doing that will instantly get you a stylish starting point.
Nicky has attended all the fabulous fashion shows in New York, Paris, Milan, and more in her young years, but her advice is down to earth and certainly does not require you have a trust fund. Just the opposite, her tone is one of a best friend going through your closet and handing you advice that is at times funny but always wise. Certainly a lot of what Nicky says makes you think. In one chapter, she advises, "Always dress like you are going to meet your worst enemy" (i.e, bumping into the ex-boyfriend who betrayed you, or the mean girl in high school who made your freshman year a terror.) Nicky gives many examples of her own life and shows how running into that old boyfriend looking like a million because she had taken just a little extra time with her appearance on the way to meet girlfriends for a casual Mexican dinner gave her a happy boost during that unexpected nano-second on-the-street encounter.
With each page, you will rethink your own wardrobe and habits, and occasionally Nicky will casually toss out the very advice you needed most. When it happens, you will feel like you were hit by a thunderbolt. I enjoyed her advice about dressing for a first date, meeting his parents, and more, and all along she gives you many vignettes that allow you to see her own lifestyle. Those peeks into her own life allow you to understand why she has the authority and experience in her early thirties to write this wonderful jewel of a book.
She has advice on such things as:
- The $30 wardrobe item you can't live without.
- The one closet accessory that keeps everything organized at all times.
- Five must-have wardrobe items, all affordable.
- How to pack a suitcase like a jet-setter.
I feel you will enjoy this book and get much from it. Just click here to order your copy:
