Finally, some good news.
Aquarius season comes to a merciful end this week as the Sun enters Pisces. Like Aquarius season, a Pisces period can be a time of a lot of clashing and hot emotions, but it’s also an opportunity for growth. Unlike Aquarius’, Pisces’ tend to quantify their creativity with purpose and evolution more than ideas.
That could mean a manifestation of everything teams have worked on in the first five weeks of the season; Mercury retrograde comes to an end as well, leaving a shadow period that promises mayhem, too.
