Pisces season 2021 is here. As we leave the colder, more detached energy of Aquarius season, the energy mutates into the in-between that is Pisces season. Pisces rules the period between winter and spring where the weather can vacillate back and forth until finally we seem to flow into gradual warming and the awakening from the deep sleep of winter. As such, Pisces is a mutable sign which is indicative of an adaptive, chameleon-like nature.
Pisces Place in the Zodiac
Pisces is the 12th sign of the zodiac. It’s a water sign and its ruler is Neptune, God of the Sea, but before Neptune’s discovery, Jupiter ruled Pisces. And as Pisces rules the final house of the zodiac, it’s also the culmination, of all experiences that came before it. A cosmic transition between dark and light, inner and outer experience.
Corporeally, Pisces rules the feet and the systems that keep fluids moving through our bodies. Creatively, it rules mysticism and movies, photography and dreams, and all things that are not as they appear. The symbol of this sign is two fish tied together, facing different directions—and if you’ve ever known a Pisces you can attest to their ability to shift directions at a moment’s notice, flowing one way or the other, back and forth. Pisces is ethereal energy and their archetype is the dreamer, the mystic, the intuitive, empathic soul. They are also known for their less than pleasant side of delusional, victim or martyr, overly emotional/dramatic, gullible and addictive personality.
The fish can go both ways in one lifetime as well, possibly giving into substance abuse or escapism and then turning their life around at some point. No matter how they show up, they’ll have an interesting story of triumph over personal limitations or suffering.
Pisces Season Energy
Pisces energy is like that feeling you get when you know something is going on, but can’t put your finger on it. If you’ve ever known a Pisces, through that relationship you may have discovered you’ve come to terms with some limiting beliefs you held or that you were able to rise above a situation where you were victimized. You’ll find so many Pisces in nursing or other healing professions as they are born to help others. They seem to ‘get’ you and anything you may be going through.
Pisces has a beautiful way of making you feel as though you are the only one who matters in the moment they are with you. It’s a very real, spiritual connection you can make with these divine humans. Unfortunately, at times they can enable, and ultimately weaken others through their willingness to take on others pain or responsibility for another’s actions. They can create interdependent relationships that are extremely unhealthy, just by being kind. So strong boundaries are extremely important for our Pisces friends to create and hold tight.
Pisces also rules sacrifice. If you look at what the divine purpose behind Pisces energy is, you’ll find it has to do with purification of our soul through forgiveness and compassion. The sign reminds that only in forgiving ourselves and understanding our own perceived weaknesses, can we accept others and truly love unconditionally. In this, we are enabled to release the bonds of self/self serving/self centerdness and ego. This is the divine gift of Pisces.
Pisces Season Intentions
Pisces season 2021 is going to be a time of continued change. From one season to another, you can set intentions around things you’d most like to release that have kept you from achieving your goals. This is a season to let your imagination soar with dreams and ideas you’ve always wanted to explore.
Don’t be in a hurry during Pisces season. Neptune/Pisces can be deceiving or have you over promising because you really, really believe you can do something.
Look at your personal boundaries and where others may be projecting their reality onto you—release it. Projection goes both ways so consider also where you may be reacting or responding through pain rather than unconditional acceptance of another.
Feel the feels. We all become more sensitive during the Sun’s run through Pisces. This time is about remembering that we are all connected. Don’t try so hard to be something. Allow your spirit to gently flow, intuitively guiding you to the next right thing in your life. Listen to music that moves you, create or look through images that inspire you, journal your dreams and deepest feelings, read or write poetry or music, get a deck of oracle cards and let the messages move and uplift your soul. Connect with your divine self and marvel at your powerful, inner strength, and deepest embodiment of love. It’s a beautiful time to breathe deeply and return to your heart space.
