PiscesFebruary 19 - March 20
Today’s astrologically charged weather encourages us to lay low, meditate, and take frequent breaks from technology — even if that seems counterproductive. With Mars and Uranus energizing the cosmos, power struggles with oneself or others are likely. Pisces, if you need some time on your own, without being other people’s emotional support system, this would be a great day to practice setting boundaries. The New Moon energy is still quite strong, so being able to know when you can’t give any more of your energy to others will be healing as you fully embrace the fresh start this year wants to gift you.
Happy Aquarius season Skymates! Pisces, today the Sun leaves the structure-seeking sign of Capricorn to enter the innovative and free-spirited energy of Aquarius. This month will help us to align even more with the energy of the Aquarian Age. It’s time to challenge the status quo, within ourselves, within our families, within our groups, and out in the world. Pisces, this month is about closure. It’s about tapping into your spiritual journey. It’s about allowing yourself to take things slow and to sink into your emotional body. So try not to set up too many meetings and appointments, only the ones that are truly vital. Leave your calendar open and go with the flow of the moment.
Ruling Planet: Neptune, the Planet of Fantasy & Jupiter, the Planet of Luck
Where You’ll Find Them: In their own world, at an artist gallery, writing a song
What They Avoid: Predictability, structure, societal expectations
Pisces, the 12th and final sign of the zodiac, is all about connecting with depth and the subconscious. As a Water sign, Pisces is profoundly emotional, sensitive and intuitive. Pisces are known for their big hearts, full of love and compassion. They tend to wear their hearts on their sleeve, unlike the more guarded Water signs Cancer and Scorpio. Pisces is the ultimate dreamer, often floating off into their own world when the “real” world gets too overbearing. With Pisces, there’s so much more than what meets the eye. Pisces can play tricks on your mind due to their adaptability, which is why they’re symbolized by the Fish.
Pisces are artists, healers and mystical being, so they don’t often gravitate towards conventional career paths. They’d ideally not even want to work at all, because Pisces understand that life is meant for being more than just a rat race. Life’s meant to be felt and experienced fully, and Pisces is too often aware of how easily desensitized and disconnected human beings can be. That’s why many Pisces use art as their outlet — they’re able to remind everyone of our collective humanity and our transcendent talents.
If you want to be friends with a Pisces, be prepared to deal with their unpredictable nature and occasional moodiness. Pisces doesn’t do that well when it comes to being on time or continuing a super long stream of conversation, and that can lead to people feeling like Pisces is irresponsible or flakey, when in reality they’re just doing their own thing. Pisces is a loyal, caring, intuitive friend who often knows what’s going on with a loved one just by looking at them in their eyes. There is a darker side of Pisces in friendship, though, one that Pisces may at times try to deny. Pisces can be an all-consuming friend, and there are moments when jealousy or envy gets the best of them. Pisces’ mission is to learn to accept each and everyone of their feelings — they aren’t “good”or “bad” — they’re just what they feel. The more they resist their feelings, the stronger their feelings become.
A Pisces in love is a beautiful sight, as long as the relationship isn’t a toxic one. As the most spiritual sign of the zodiac, Pisces tends to have a savior-complex in relationships, and this can lead to them being overly self-sacrificing and compromising, to their own detriment. Since Pisces is ruled by Neptune and Jupiter, they can sometimes idealize their lovers or put them on a pedestal. They also don’t always let go of unhealthy unions, causing them to go through more pain than necessary. Alternatively, once Pisces becomes more aware of their inner strength, they’ll be able to transcend toxic unions and attract soul-stirring, mutually beneficial, transformative connections. Once Pisces fully trusts their lover, they invite them into their orgasmic world, and nothing is ever the same.
