A cosmic watery theme continues as the Sun follows Neptune, Mercury, Mars and Chiron into the oceanic seaweed of Pisces on February 18. The Sun colors our self-expression and the energy we choose to radiate through the heart, and when in the compassionate sign of Pisces, we’re more likely to feel our way through situations and empathically consider the other person’s position. Boundaries get blurred and we may have to ask ourselves often and deeply, “Is this my stuff”? Where one person ends and another begins is vague and confusing during this time.
There is nothing linear, logical or clear about the energy of Pisces. The sign is dual, mutable and watery. Think squishy, mushy, foggy. This invisible and elusive energy dominates the cosmos until the middle of the March, so it’s time to learn to sing in the rain. Getting in touch with the higher octaves of Pisces is essential to avoid drowning in the potential paranoia or other emotional swamps of Pisces.
The best anchor is to give yourself plenty of soulful and spiritual outlets. If you don’t give your imagination something beautiful and inspiring to merge with, it may seek a more grim approach, like exaggerating your worst fears and negative projections. This can be an incredibly creative influence and you may notice fashion, photography, film and music shining in their highest glory during this phase.
Life is fluid, dreamy and inspired if you’re working the higher potential of this transit. If you get stuck in the pity party side of Pisces, falling into the victim complex or woe-is-me syndrome, you’ll miss the magic.
