PISCES (February 19-March 20)
You may feel like you're under some strange pressure, which is true enough. But how you describe that sensation and what you choose to allow it to motivate you to do are under your discretion and control. Your astrology describes the theme of synthesis. This word started off meaning 'deductive reasoning' though the current definition is about combining the parts of something into a whole. Presumably we are talking about your life, your work and what you've accomplished so far. I would take the meaning a step further, which is about the synthesizing of something new from previously existing elements. In other words, there are parts of this holistic entity you're assembling that you will have to make yourself. This may requires the use of chemistry and physics, in the metaphoric sense. Things that don't seem to mix or combine on the first try may need a few more rounds of experimentation. You might need to account for the missing elements that will make your process work. The single most important thing you can be in possession of is an idea of what you're working toward—a description and drawing of what it is and how it's supposed to work. You might start that process with identifying the purpose that you need fulfilled, and let that purpose and vision guide and motivate you. Take up your role as the inventor of your own life.
