The time has come to give a fond farewell to the laid-back Aquarian energy, in which we've been living and open our spirits to embrace the Piscean Sun. Emotions are likely to ebb and flow from February 19 though March 20, as the energy of the Sun in Pisces warms the earth below. As the last sign of the zodiac, Pisces energy encourages us to feel more deeply so that we may plant our personal seeds for the next Celestial Year and nurture them to grow.
Two opposing fish
The symbol for the watery sign of Pisces is two fish bound together, but facing opposite directions which is accurately symbolic of the Piscean struggle to either "go with the flow" or move into new territory by battling their way upstream. Pisces is ruled by Neptune, the planet of illusion, mystery and deception. The co-ruling planet is Jupiter, who offers optimism, generosity and dreams. These planetary influences, combined with the elemental force of life-giving water, create one of the most highly perceptive, intuitive and empathic combinations astrologically available.
Pisces people definitely heed their watery side and take a more emotional approach to life. They have incredible imagination and creativity and are loyal, giving and kind. Their gentle energy may make them appear shy, but this appearance fades once you step into the warmth of their hospitality. They have an uncanny ability to blend in and adapt to any situation, possibly because of their natural sensitivity. A Pisces is very quick to see what lies beneath the surface and speedily unravels the underlying mysteries.
While Pisces is a sign that enjoys independence and freedom, they have a great need to be loved and reassured. As a rule, they will try and avoid conflict - but even the most delicate fish can have an incredibly strong backbone and barracuda teeth.
When it comes to relationships, Pisces are quite romantic. They tend to be eager to please and easily take on the joys and woes of those they care about. A properly loved and reassured Pisces is a happy Pisces and they will love, support and trust almost unconditionally. But a Pisces scorned will bear the scar for years - if not life.
The Piscean path
Pisces is an artist of life. It seems that they are always seeking higher spiritual consciousness and are eager to teach and share their knowledge. They understand self-sacrifice, and will not hesitate to help a friend in need. It is safe to say that they can be generous to a fault.
Professionally, their artistic nature must be allowed to flow. Whether a poet, a dancer, or a psychic, they accomplish the most when they feel that their work is appreciated. While people born under this sign will do what it takes to make their way in life, they prefer a position that offers creative and scheduling freedom to a 9-5 day.
It is virtually impossible to accurately describe the depth of a Pisces. They feel deeply, think deeply, and venture into realms - that sometimes seems to cross realities. It is their gift and their curse. People born under this sign are capable of achieving just about anything - provided they stay on course and avoid leading themselves astray.
Happy Birthday, Pisces!
If the last couple of years of your life have seemed a little out-of-whack, this is the year that you can pull it all together! As your new year begins, you are quickly blessed with a lunar eclipse in your opposing sign of Virgo. The eclipse energy is particularly beneficial to you, if you choose to use it.
The bigger you dream, the more likely you are to achieve success, provided you stick to your plans and keep yourself on-track. Old friends may once again crawl out of the woodwork and new friends are likely to gravitate toward you. Many of the people you meet will be instrumental in helping you achieve your future goals. Personally and professionally, your relationships will evolve and reach new depth.
Spiritually, prepare for your beliefs and concepts to change. Tap into your own psychic abilities and you will find the truth - that you are better and more deserving than what you had ever realized. This is the year for you to learn to accept help when it is offered, as well as time for you to learn when and how to say, "No."
Overall, if you are born under the sign of Pisces, expect this to be a revolutionary period for you. The plans you lay and changes you make will lead you to the inner peace and balance you have been looking for.
