Date Duration: February 19 to March 20
Sign Quality: Mutable
Planetary Ruler: Neptune
From February 19 to March 20, the Sun is in Pisces. Ruled by Neptune, the Roman god of freshwater and the sea, Pisces is a very intuitive and emotional sign. During this period every sign of the zodiac will be exposed to Pisces energy; this means that we will all experience both the benefits and challenges of Pisces energy. How this energy affects you depends on your personality, your ability to adapt to change, and rise to the challenges that may come your way.
Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac and as is positioned at the end of winter in the northern hemisphere. This period when the sun aligns with Pisces may urge you to engage in deep introspection and look back on your experiences during the past year.
Pisces is perhaps one of the most intuitive signs of the zodiac and as such, it is the perfect time to contemplate on your past so you can wash away any regrets, come to terms with past mistakes, and figure out which aspects of your life you need to change. As a mutable sign, people born under Pisces are known to be adaptable, flexible, and sympathetic- traits that are useful to have when you are in the midst of making serious changes in your life.
Like other water signs, Pieces is driven by empathy and emotions. The sign is symbolized by two fishes swimming in opposite directions, which is interpreted to signify the duality in Pisces’ personality.
Some people might find Pisces energy a bit overwhelming, especially those who aren’t used to dealing with their emotions and are averse to change. Fortunately, there are stones and crystals that can help you harness the positive energies and cope with any challenges that Pisces energy may bring out; they are beneficial for everyone, regardless of their sign, during this season.
A Closer Look at Pisces Strengths and Weaknesses
Highly intuitive, creative, and intelligent, Pisces are known for their ability to sense things that others cannot which gives them a great capacity for empathy. Their deep intuition and sympathetic nature is what makes them such great listeners and good advisers. They are also known for being non-judgmental even though they have a tendency to feel things more deeply than others. When you share your feelings and problems to a Pisces friend or relative, you can expect them to listen and sympathize, but they will never judge.
Pieces are very loyal people, especially to their friends and family. While they seem sociable, Pisces actually prefer being around small groups of people rather than large groups. They might be willing to lend an ear to anyone and even give advice, but when it comes to sharing their own feelings and emotions, Pisces are often closed off and are only willing to share with a select few, as they tend to hold on to the belief that other people won’t understand their feelings.
Pisces are generally quiet people, they prefer to listen and observe rather than talk when they are in social situations. While they enjoy being around family and close friends, Pisces generally like spending their time alone either thinking or letting their imagination run wild. They also enjoy engaging in outdoor activities, especially water-related activities whether by themselves or with their family, friends, and significant others.
Pisces are known to be dreamy and idealistic, but they also have a logical side to them. While you might find a Pisces distracted by their own thoughts and fantasies ,they are also capable of accomplishing tasks quickly when they set their mind to it.
It is in their dreams versus their actual reality that Pisces’ dualistic nature manifests itself the most. They can be completely immersed in fantasies and daydreams in one moment, then easily snap back to reality in the next.
Being deeply emotional is both a strength and a weakness for Pisces. On the one hand, having the capacity to feel things deeply and being in touch with their intuition gives them a strong moral compass, but it can also be their biggest detriment, especially when they succumb to challenging emotions.
When they feel overwhelmed by these emotions, Pisces can fall into depression and lose their ability to see the good in the world. They have a tendency to overthink and get too wrapped up in problems which can cause them lose their sense of good judgment and ability to solve problems.
Pisces are idealists and only see the good in the world when they feel optimistic, but can also view the world as cruel and hard when they are exposed to too much negativity. When they feel too much negativity, Pisces can turn to escapism and may have a tendency to overindulge and get intoxicated as a way to quiet down their overthinking brains and numb their emotions.
Romantically, Pisces make for very loyal partners. They love being in a committed relationship and when they are in love, they tend to offer everything they have to their partners, wholeheartedly and selflessly. While they don’t expect anything in return, when they get their hearts broken or are betrayed by a romantic partner, they tend to lose all sense of reality and seek pleasure elsewhere.
Pisces, just like every other sign, have negative aspects to their personality and while you might see these negative traits from time to time. You’ll find that Pisces are generally kindred spirits and are very easy to talk to, which is why most people turn to them for advice.
This period when the sun aligns with Pisces may be difficult for some people, but can also be the best time to get in touch with your emotional side and connect with your intuition especially if you’re having difficulty dealing with any changes that are happening in your life or implementing the necessary changes you need to improve yourself and your life.
