The frustration for Pisces this quarter is that you will not bear the direct benefit from the surge of activity and energy you are experiencing. Your efforts will be directed towards the organisation or business administration of a third party. For Pisces who work in stockbroking or finance this can be a very fruitful time for speculation and investment: hunches and personal knowledge can give you an edge. In both cases the warning is to not take undue risks with property and investments which are not yours.
Concerned with inequalities and injustice you may find yourself in the role of advisor or champion of the underdog in some way. This is a chance to use your relatively more superior social status, education or knowledge of the law to help some person or group achieve a fair result or a chance at improving their plight. Emotional involvement may be cathartic on a level for you, but you must retain some detachment so that you do not become overwhelmed by the whole project.
On a personal level be careful that strong emotions which arise from deep seated or subconscious resentments do not lead to neurotic and erratic behaviour which could undermine work and social relationships.
This is a time when many Pisceans may make a firm commitment and so bended knee and marriage proposals should not come as a surprise. In marriages, compromise is vital and there may be a need for a re-declaration of commitment after a betrayal of trust which may not be an affair, but rather a breakdown in mutual respect and drifting apart. No relationship just flows like a steam, every now and again there must be a bend or a swirling weir which in addressing you rediscover element of the union which may have been neglected of misunderstood.
Single Pisceans may be surprised to learn that a platonic friends has carried a candle for them for many a year – give it a try, why not?
Work will tend to be behind the scenes and even though reward per se may not be forthcoming the goal is bigger than any one individual and that is where the satisfaction comes from. Principles of justice, truth and the pursuit of constructive values is central to the work ethic. You will be motivated to work hard as you are keen to make a good impression. Any criticism may be taken unduly hard and you must try and have a thick skin and rise above it if you are treated or spoken to unfairly as the focus is more on the goal than the individual, it is not personal. In general relations with co-workers should be amicable and there will be a positive spirit of cooperation – or should I say mutual suffering at the coal face. Your colleagues will give you moral support and some good advice.
Work motivation may have not kicked in yet, but your passions for other areas of life have hit the ground running. Aquarians are having a large dose of New Year optimism for the more enchanting aspects of life – you want to make 2014 count and that does not mean in the accounting sense. A life audit last year made many Aquarians take a long hard look at where they are and while on the surface things may look good, it’s “only the heart that sees rightly” and so while the pros may exceed the cons as far as the material side of life goes, that is far from satisfactory and Aquarians are looking for meaning this year. I think Aquarians know in their heart what would make their lives zing and perhaps what has been lacking is the impetus to get cracking. Whenever you are living life for the moment and being a free spirit you can guarantee that someone will be trying to criticise and control you – perhaps even reign you in. January is ideal for defining your needs diplomatically to those who care about – planning things now and getting the people around you on board will go a long way to making it easier for you to fulfil new goals and needs especially those which are not easy for others to understand.
Do not be distant – communication in new and older relationships is vital. Do not isolate yourself either. Passions will run high this period and bearing in mind your ‘searching’ mentality you may jump quickly into an ill-advised liason – be it a one night stand or an affair. By all means pursue what feels right and what makes you feel alive, but bear in mind the stakes and the risks. If you do act, take it a touch more slowly and ask yourself, “Is this really what I hope it is.”
A very productive time for working in teams and creating harmony in your work environment. Introducing new technology and helping those you work for or with to switchover is likely. It is best to get contracts signed, new terms of employment negotiated and resumes sent out before Mercury turns retrograde on the 22nd of January. Your mind will be inclined to drift off into a dreamworld and so this is not an ideal time for intensive study, deadlines or detailed precision work. Try to put off the aforementioned or delegate it out. The best use of these period is in creative planning for your business or learning new skills – if you are an employee you may well be sent to learn new IT skills or management training. Union representation or other political interests you get involved with ie action groups, pressure groups and lobbies will keep you very busy and provide a social outlet.
Book Review NEXT of SIN – Dianne Rapp, Book Reviewer
Ever wonder what happened to those stories filled with suspense with twists and turns? You know the kind that Alfred Hitchcock produced, making us bite our nails and worry for the hero or heroine! Well Lisa Gordon has penned that type of thriller and it’s worth reading. Her heroine, Gaby thought she was leading an ideal life. She was a rising star in her legal firm and just married a handsome man. Then the nightmares started plaguing her and memories of a childhood trauma erupted. To save her sanity Gaby must delve into the secrets of a serial killer and risk her own life to bring him to justice.
I really enjoyed this suspenseful novel! It reminded me of a Hitchcock thriller, filled with danger but not depending on blood, guts, and gore like modern novels. This is a thriller that delivers chills while chasing an elusive killer. You won’t know until the final pages if this clever killer escapes. Gaby evolved from a society socialite into a brave woman fighting for justice. Pick up this book and enjoy a story worthy of Hitchcock.
A string of murders dating back to 1987 and in all that time only one witness and she doesn’t even know she’s a witness!
Top Amazon Reviewer Dii called it, “A chilling thriller that will dig deep into your marrow and whittle away at your faith in humanity and justice.”

to be remembered.
