Spring 2021 has not been kind or easy. You may find that relationship challenges are cropping up all over the place. If you’re spending your nights studying the light of the moon on new fallen snow and wondering if it’s time to look for a new love, understand that your emotions are headed over the top of a roller coaster. You are feeling the grind of the climb as we head into Pisces season, which starts on February 18 and ends on March 20.
Take these five steps to get through this to a better place.
1) Study your horoscope to help you get a handle on these powerful feelings, particularly the Mars mojo of early March.
2) You need to express yourself and you deserve happiness. Use the waning moon power at the end of February to release what you don’t want in your sphere.
3) However, emotions are intense right now, stress is high and you want a better path at the end of this Pisces season, not rubble. Guard your mouth, especially if you’re prone to verbal eruptions.
4) Use Mars energy to power up your focus, goals and intentions. You may find that you’re more direct. Try to use email at work instead of direct verbal connection to be clear without overstepping.
5) Mercury doesn’t come out of retrograde until February 21. Just a reminder.
Do your best to keep your attitude and your interactions positive in this season. This is a time of romance, but it’s also a time of drama. On March 3rd, Mars will enter Gemini. This may give you a strong impulse to take big actions, including kicking a few people out of your circle. Be smart about this. Write a letter outlining exactly what is rattling your cage and explaining exactly why you want them gone. Fold it up and set it on fire. Even if they never know how frustrated you were, you can put those frustrations in the past. If the offender comes back to make new trouble, you can make a healthy choice instead of an angry one.
Taurus, get out of the office and leave off the chore list at home. Put some serious time into self care. Go to your favorite bookstore, get a coffee, treat yourself to something new and scandalous, and read for a couple of hours. Play an online card game with friends and laugh until your face hurts. Take at least two naps in one weekend. Mercury is finally coming out of retrograde and you can speak your mind at work with less chance of being misunderstood, but make sure that your car is not the last in the lot.
Gemini, this is actually your season to step up at work. Take on that challenging project that languishes because nobody wants it. You have the power at this time to really make a difference, both for your employer and in your career. However, make sure you speak up as you step up. Mars moves into your sun on March 3rd. This is big power, but make sure that Mars energy doesn’t mean battle energy in your case. Use your communication skills to turn your professional expansion into a process that benefits you now and in the future.
While Cancer is always busy focusing on the comfort of others, this is the season to do a little dreaming, a lot of planning and a great deal of communicating. You have a vision for 2021, even if you have pushed it to the back of your mind while caring for others. Instead, use the full moon to build a vision of your new nest. Use the power of the waning moon to shed what no longer serves you. By the new moon of March 13, your manifesting power will bring all that you want into your sphere.
Leo, it’s time to do some slicing and dicing. You likely have some things to say on several topics. Wait until Mercury isn’t messing things up. Between February 21 and 26, take a careful assessment of the people and activities that you spend your time and energy on. Who and what is worth it? What activities need to go? Which people are simply not good for you? Be fair, but be ruthless. Be as clean as possible when making these cuts and do it before Mars energy hits on March 3. You are performing surgery on your life, but Mars energy can turn your scalpel into a hammer.
All work and a little play may be your best option during Pisces season, dear Virgo. If you’re up for a promotion, dig in at least until February 26. Nodes of Destiny can bring good things to your office. Be ready to walk out of your comfort zone and lock the door behind you; huge changes are possible. Additionally, this may be a time for that side hustle to turn into something remarkable around the full moon of late February. Be ready to do some negotiating during the new moon; you could turn an ordinary event into something truly life altering.
Your scrambled schedule is going to stay scrambled until you commit to some serious self-care. Pisces season is the time to focus on getting plenty of rest. Venus energy on February 25 and the full moon of February 27 will either put you in the mood for self-love, or it will put you in a mood with those you care about. You do an amazing job of keeping things in order for everyone else. This is the season to order things in your life around your own well-being.
If old hurts are getting in the way of growing existing relationships or reaching out for new ones, it’s time to get brave. If you have a relationship or friendship that’s fading, take a hard look at why and decide if you are ready to reinvest, or if it’s time to move on. By March 3, you may be ready to put down a few things and just walk away. Because you have the power to create verbal wounds, take care to get your thoughts in order before you speak.
If you’re a traditional commitment-phobic Sagittarius, buckle up. It’s time to make some choices about your current squeeze. If you’re in a committed relationship, it may be time to explore expectations and future goals. For those who’ve always been a little skittish about love, make sure you approach your partner at a good time. They will be confused and you will be uncomfortable, so things could go badly wrong. Use the power following the full moon to shed old hurts and scars from former relationships. If your current partner hurt you in the past. give them the grace to change so you can change your attachment. Be brave.
Many Capricorns will want to do some navel-gazing during this time. Do you have a thorny issue with a loved one, and could it be related to your communication style? Be ready to say what you feel, but be prepared to hear what they have to say as well. Don’t worry about getting the last word. Worry more about leaving the last scar. You may get feedback that you need but really don’t want to face. Use the new moon energy in mid-March to reflect and grow. Old hurts can become new bonds if you put in the emotional work.
In honor of getting your tax stuff together, this is the time to go through your finances. You may need to start a budget, or adjust the one you have to focus on your new goals. Remember that financial security starts with financial self-knowledge. Instead of treating your budget as though it’s the money penalty box, use it as a toolbox to get what you really want. By March 13, you need a list of your goals, your credit card statements, and your bank statements. Sit down and put together a budget that directs your life in a direction you’re crazy about.
Stop. Wait. Think. Make lists, look at all the angles, and don’t react too quickly. There are big opportunities coming your way in Pisces season, which may confuse and worry you a bit. That’s fine; big decisions take time. Make lists of your goals and study your intentions. What do you want out of this new opportunity, and why? When you have your decision made and fully understand your “why” move forward without hesitating. Your intuition will guide you to the best choices for you and yours.
Pisces season is the time for all of us to step back and review what we want, why we want it, and how we’re going to get there. We may also be working to support the goals of those we love. There’s nothing wrong with changing your goals at this time, especially if you’re passionate about the new direction you and your loved ones are headed. Do everything you can to make life easier and take care of yourself.
