PiscesFebruary 19 - March 20
Welcome to February, skymates! This is the last full month where Saturn, the Planet of Challenge and Responsibility, will be in the sign of Aquarius. On March 7, Saturn enters Pisces, where it’ll remain until 2025. This month is astrologically and spiritually significant. For you, Pisces, Saturn’s final stretch in Aquarius is teaching you the power of forgiveness. As sweet as you may outwardly seem, you’re a profound Water sign with the capacity to hold grudges even longer than Scorpios or Cancers. But sometimes those grudges cause you more harm, making it challenging to fully heal. Use the start of the month to make a list of all the people you consciously or unconsciously still have a grudge about. Validate your feelings and accept that they should be acknowledged. But with the full moon in Leo striking this week, this may be the time to burn that piece of paper and let your burdens turn to ash along with it.

Dear Pisces, the month of February opens up with Ceres, the asteroid of motherly nurture, going retrograde in Libra on the 3rd. As this happens in your area of one-on-one relationships, use this time to shed light on any imbalances or power dynamics in your connections and committed partnerships.
The Full Moon in the passionate sign of Leo will happen on the 5th, at 1:28 pm EST, in your area of physical needs and work routines, it’s a reminder to take care of yourself and your well-being. Your body is worthy of royal treatment and it’s important to tend to the places that may get rusty, scratched up, or worn down. This is a time to focus on self-care and rejuvenation, so make sure to schedule in some rest and relaxation. With the Full Moon in your work sector, your talents are on full display and you may get a well-deserved recognition for your hard work.
Vesta, the asteroid of devotion and commitment, begins a new run around the zodiac on the 7th as it moves into Aries, bringing a renewed sense of passion and commitment to the things you hold dear. This is a time to focus on what truly matters to you and to align your actions with your core beliefs and values.
On the 11th, Mercury —the Messenger— moves into your area of introspection, in the sign of Aquarius. As you delve deeper into your inner chambers, allow yourself to dream and fantasize about what you truly want. Trust that the universe is working behind the scenes to bring you breakthroughs and opportunities. Don’t be afraid to shake things up and reorganize your thoughts and beliefs. Embrace the power of change and trust the process of self-discovery. The darkness eventually leads to the light.
Pallas, the asteroid of wisdom and strategic thinking, will enter your area of creative self-expression in the sign of Cancer on the 16th. You’ll be feeling especially inspired and motivated to share your talents with the world. It’s a powerful time to tap into your inner wisdom and trust your instincts when it comes to your creative pursuits.
On the 18th, the Sun’s exit from Aquarius will give way to Pisces Season, followed by the New Moon also in the dreamy sign of Pisces, on the 20th at 2:06 am EST, activating your area of self-discovery. This is a time for self-reflection and inner growth. Be patient and understanding with your emotional responses to the ups and downs of life. Remember that healing is a journey, and it starts with being kind and compassionate towards yourself. Tend to your wounds, both physical and emotional. Recognize that they are gifts, not curses, and that by working through them, you will gain a deeper understanding of yourself. Become your own shelter, be the nurse to your own fractures, breaks, and bruises.
Also on the 20th, Venus starts a new cycle around the zodiac as she comes out of Pisces and moves into Aries. Happening in your area of resources, the fire of passion and ambition burns bright within you. This is a time of growth and abundance, but it’s important to remember that these opportunities won’t necessarily be available forever. Take advantage of this moment and be proactive in your financial pursuits.
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.
