As we move into the Pisces cycle (February 19th – March 20th) it’s time to harness the renewing energy of spring, and get back to actually enjoying things. The water signs relish an escape from reality. Follow your fish friends, and embrace your sensitive artistic side with music, movies, and museums. Get out there and get inspired to dream big.
Go with the flow. Make an effort to say YES to things and work on filling up your social calendar with cool events to give yourself something to look forward to until spring finally breaks.
The grimy end of winter can be a tough time of year; on top of that, as brilliant and invigorating as Aquarius season can be, it can be lonely, too. It can leave you feeling distant, cold, and drained. It can leave you with a desperate need for softness and feeling. So now, here is Pisces season, ready to offer you the depth and emotion you’ve been missing.
The sun is typically in Pisces from about February 18 to March 20, and while it’s there, you might feel guided by empathy, by intuition, by feelings more than logic or ambition. If Aquarius season activated the best and most sparkling part of your intellect, Pisces season activates a quieter, dreamier wisdom. If Aquarius season had you feeling like your mind was someplace bright and cold and far away, Pisces season can return you to your own heart, and remind you how deeply you’re connected to the whole world around you.
