Your Daily Planet Tracker for Jan. 9: Moon In Pisces

The Moon in Pisces: Intuitive, Empathetic, Imaginative

January 9 – January 12, 2019

Tarot.com Staff

Before we talk specifically about the Moon in Pisces, let’s talk about the Moon for a moment. Astrologers consider the Moon a planet, and it’s the fastest moving of all of them. Because it moves so quickly, the Moon passes through each of the 12 zodiac signs once every month. Just as the Sun has a placement in our birth chart, so does the Moon.

When the Moon is in Pisces

No matter what Sun sign you are, for a couple of days a month we all feel a little bit like a Pisces. When the Moon is in the whimsical sign of Pisces, you’ll find yourself drifting and dreaming. Forget that pressured series of events in your day planner, and don’t bother checking your watch. This lunation will have you more concerned with the thoughts that are dancing through your mind than the realities of your everyday life. Your intuition will be heightened, and you’ll accomplish more by letting your instincts guide you.

Because emotions are on overdrive during the Pisces Moon, you’ll have a sensitivity and receptivity to the world around you. This will be a time when you’ll feel sentimental, and wanting to connect with your loved ones in an effort to be closer to them. Don’t be surprised if you get a little misty during television commercials — this is just how this Moon affects us.

New Moon in Pisces

New Moons are always a time of new beginnings, and the New Moon in Pisces inspires us to imagine the future we want. Write down what it is you’ve been dreaming of and what’s stopping you from getting it. This is the time when we overcome our fears so that we can begin manifesting the things we’ve fantasized about.

The Pisces New Moon is also a period of profound healing. If you’ve been wounded emotionally or spiritually, this is when you will focus on your regrets, your anger, your insecurities, and your doubts. This is a good time to meditate or take a walk. These moments of solitude will allow you to go within and reconnect with yourself so you can patch up old wounds that have been lingering.

Full Moon in Pisces

The Pisces Full Moon is a time of compassion. When the empathy of the Pisces Moon combines with the skills of the opposing Virgo Sun, we truly have the best of both worlds. What these signs have common is a sense of service. This Full Moon reminds us that we don’t have to be precise to be helpful, and that making an error with a loving attitude is sometimes more beneficial than perfect behavior done begrudgingly.

The Full Moon in Pisces turns our simple thoughts into vivid fantasies. We might feel like we’re in a cosmic tug of war where we’re being pulled between idealism and reality. It may seem as though we’re being forced to choose sides, but the point of this lunation is to put ideals and inspiration into concrete forms so we can bring our dreams down to earth.

Your Daily Tarot Love Card for January 9th is The Tower

Daily Love Tarot

The Tower

Resentment that builds walls that keeps others we want in, out, needs healing today. Resentment shows in tension in a face that rarely smiles. The Tower urges you to start working now and you are one day closer to a loving, soul mate union. If your long-term relationship is undergoing a rough patch, talk about the things that bother you. Anger kills passion. You need to encourage them to talk to you.

Tarot Card of the Day for January 9 is The Hermit

Tarot Card of the Day

The Hermit


The challenge of The Hermit card is to be able to recognize a teacher in a humble disguise. This font of mysterious knowledge will not make it easy for the student to acquire his wisdom, as it takes time and long contemplation to fathom what he knows. He often speaks wordlessly, or in ancient and barbaric tongues, communicating with the elements, animals, and nature herself.

While an hourglass was an identifying feature on the earliest Hermit Tarot cards, more modern cards have shifted the metaphor, showing more or less light released from his lantern. In either case, the Hermit card reminds us of the value of time away from the hubbub of civic life, to relax the ego in communion with nature.

The universe is trying to send you a message!

2019 WILL BE DEFINED BY THESE TWO TAROT CARDS

2019 WILL BE DEFINED BY THESE TWO TAROT CARDS

A year can be measured in a multitude of ways. In terms of the Tarot, 2019 will be the year of The Hanged Man or The Empress.

Tarot and astrology both involve a blend of intuition and mathematics, and as such, annual thematic cards are divined through very basic means: just add up the digits of the year in question. So, for 2019, determining the year’s ruling cards is as simple as adding 2+0+1+9 = 12 (The Hanged Man), and then furthering that equation by adding 1+2 = 3 (The Empress). If helpful, consider the double-digit card a baseline for the collective mindset and the single-digit card a more individual mode.

2018 was marked by theJustice and High Priestess cards, and it was impossible to ignore their influences on the zeitgeist. Using the approach of the double-digit card as the collective, it’s easy to see how themes of law and order loomed large in the cultural consciousness. Legal issues abounded in the government in the U.S. — think the Russia investigation and numerous skirmishes surrounding the border — and were accompanied by ample debate in regard to trans rights and the fates of those whose abuses were brought to light by the #MeToo movement. Justice is a card that speaks of karmic righteousness, and many of us seemed to wrangle with cosmic rights versus wrongs, shadow-boxing with complicated ethics and moral dilemmas. Ultimately, each of us came to understand that we must rely only on our own voice of internal knowing (The High Priestess) to make decisions and lead the way to the future.

The Tarot-centric themes of 2019 only serve to continue this developing narrative. The Hanged Man speaks of surrender, release, and sacrifice, and often comes up when querents need to make choices around personal discipline and the relinquishing of bad habits. This is a crucial time for letting go of anything that is not serving us, for stepping into the embodiment of our higher selves. On a cultural level, it is a clarion call to surrender the comforts of our various privileges and unearned advantages. We will be forced to see things through new eyes, and The Empress will guide us on an individual level, assisting in making this process of letting go a thing of grace and beauty. She will accomplish this by asking what we are creating, what we are nurturing, where our energy can be softer and more loving, and how we can mirror or mimic the unconditional love of the divine.

With this guidance in mind, it’s best to welcome whatever the New Year brings with open arms. And should you find yourself in need of a bit of guidance, simply pull a card — enhanced perspective is sure to follow.
