It is time for the collective to take a shift in energy as the sun moves into dreamy, intuitive mystical Pisces from February 18 through March 20th. The sign of Pisces is focused on what is beyond the physical realm. This is a time where being in touch with the intuition and guidance from a spiritual connection is encouraged. Pisces season is also what some may call “wrap up season” as it is the final period before the beginning of Spring. In many areas of the world, the Pisces season is represented by the last two weeks of winter. Simultaneously, it is also when we may begin to see signs of spring. True to its dualistic nature, and represented by two fish connected and swimming in opposite directions, Pisces represents where we have come from and where we are going. This time of the year is important for deep reflection. To get the most out of this time, it is important to get in touch with our spiritual nature and find a way to ground this energy in the here-and-now.
Pisces Season & The Incoming Energy
With Pisces season, the energy shifts from eccentric and unusual Aquarius to a more mystical, elusive vibe. If you thought that Aquarius was hard to understand due to its rebellious and out-of-the-box nature, then get ready to be even more confused. In general, Pisces energy is very nebulous and hard to grasp. A perfect image of Pisces is trying to grasp at fog. You can clearly see the fog, but when you go to reach for it, your hands just slip right through. This energy can be difficult to navigate for individuals that want something a bit more solid. However, there are ways that we can utilize Piscean energy in order to expand our consciousness and understand that we are all connected as one and part of the universal.
While this may not be the greatest time to be a go-getter, it is an excellent time to thoroughly explore the spiritual realm. Whether you want to get closer to your own personal religious path or you’re interested in exploring other spiritual ideas and concepts, Pisces energy supports the exploration of the spiritual realm. Getting deep and lost in the creative arts such as drawing, painting, poetic writing, music are ways in which this energy is channeled. Likewise, Pisces is an energy that is very altruistic, so looking out for the underdogs in the world through the compassionate sharing and giving of oneself is also favored during this time.
While Pisces has beautiful, ethereal energy to offer, it is important to note that all energies have another side, and this is especially true for a dualistic sign such as Pisces. Because this energy is very hard to understand, Pisces can also rule the realm of deception. This type of deception can be imposed on others or come from the self. Thus, it is important to be aware of deceiving the self as well as being deceived by other people. Likewise, this energy is also prone to be victimized as well as playing the victim in order to get out of accepting responsibility for circumstances. While this may sound a bit negative, it is important to note that all signs have their good and bad traits and by understanding this there is the opportunity to notice these behavior patterns and make adjustments accordingly.
Pisces Season and the Cosmic “Wrap Up”
As the final sign of the zodiac, Pisces is considered as both the nebulous beginning as well as the final wrap-up. Consider the time in the womb as being in the world but still apart from it. This is Pisces energy in a nutshell. Pisces is also the energy of releasing our physical bodies through the transcendent energy of the death process and returning to the universal Oneness that is everything. As the last sign, Pisces represents all of the signs before it as well as itself which is why it is one of the most difficult signs to understand. Given that Pisces season is a wrap-up of sorts before the beginning of spring marked by the sun’s movement into the sign of Aries, this is a perfect time to do your own wrapping up in your life.
Reflection is one of the main reasons why Pisces is not necessarily the most active sign. When we are wrapping things up, it is important to take time to reflect on everything that we have gone through in order to understand what we need to let go of so that we can officially move on. Thus, during this Pisces season, it is highly recommended that we all spend some time in deep reflection thinking about what we no longer need to have in our lives. Many of us will be asked to surrender and give up things that are no longer pertinent to our path forward. Consider how you will be using this energy to release that which is no longer applicable for you so that you will be able to progress forward unencumbered at the start of spring.
Pisces Season Important Planetary Energies
The following are some important planetary energies that will be occurring during Pisces season which goes from February 18th to March 20th.
Mercury which is currently transiting Aquarius will officially move direct right as we enter Pisces season on either February 20th or 21st depending on time zone. Likewise, Venus, the planet of love, relationships, value, and finances will be entering into the sign of Pisces adding a bit of romance and unconditional love to the mix.
The end of February gives us a full moon in Virgo which will help us ground into our energy and have us really look at how we are navigating our everyday experiences. Virgo is a critical sign, but the critical nature is there in order to help us fine-tune our lives so that we may live each day in alignment with ourselves.
At the beginning of March, Mars will move from the sign of Taurus into the airy sign of Gemini changing the way that we move and exert our physical energy. Likewise, a new moon in Pisces will offer new spiritual opportunities and a new path forward that hopefully aligns with our spiritual nature.
Mercury will also be moving into the sign of Pisces after completing its transit in Aquarius. With Mercury in the sign of Pisces, we can expect communication to get a bit nebulous, indirect, and nonverbal.
Channeling Piscean Energy Constructively
Because Pisces energy can be a bit confusing and difficult for some people to navigate, here are some suggestions for channeling Neptunian, Piscean energy constructively.
-Don’t be in a rush to get anything done. Honestly, Neptune/Pisces energy is not forceful like its next-door neighbor Aries. Pisces is pretty laid-back. If you want to get things done you have to do so because you’re motivated to do it instinctively. Take a look at your biorhythms to determine when it’s best to do certain things. If you have plans, make space for changes as energy fluctuations can result in a change of plans.
-Use this time to really explore your spiritual nature. This is an excellent time to practice yoga, meditation, energy healing, and other practices that connect us to the spiritual realms. If you are going this route, please be aware of being deceived by others and oneself due to wanting to believe in certain practices or because you want someone to save you. Pisces has this thing with either wanting to be the victim that needs a savior or desiring to be the savior rescuing the victim. This is not a positive use of this energy, and it is recommended that you avoid it.
-This is a great time to delve into your creative side. As one of the most creative, imaginative signs of the zodiac, Pisces has the ability to turn visualizations into reality. This shows up amazing poetry, artwork, and beautiful music. Thoroughly consider how you can explore your creative side at this time.
-Looking out for those that are less fortunate is also a Pisces trait. This is one of the most altruistic signs of the zodiac. This energy really hates to see anyone suffer, so it’s always interested in helping others. In some cases, Pisces can go too far and actually give away to others what it needs for itself. This is where Pisces needs to develop boundaries to ensure that it is not being taken advantage of. Consider how you offer assistance to those less fortunate at this time. Please remember however that you are not anyone’s savior just like you are no one’s victim. The best way to help others is to encourage them to also help themselves.
Here’s to the cosmic wrap up that is Pisces season.
