Sun enters Pisces on the 18th of February.
Pisces is the last sign of the Zodiac. Eleven months after the Spirit (Aries) has grown to become a perfect individual (Sun’s journey from Taurus to Virgo) and thereafter, this perfect individual has learned to give back to the world his or her unique gifts (Sun’s journey from Libra to Aquarius), in Pisces it’s time to integrate everything and become “whole again”.
After this perfection is achieved, the Spirit will return to the womb of the universe and start afresh, when on the 19th of March we have the Spring equinox and a new Astrological Year will start (a new Astrological cycle starts at the Spring Equinox which is the same time when the Sun moves into Aries).
“Perfection is achieved not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away” – Exupery
Pisces season is a time to reap what we sow, to take responsibility for what has happened in our life and simply accept the reality of now.
If you lived with curiosity and intention you can find yourself content with how far you’ve come, no matter how difficult this 12-month cycle has been for you. Remember – It’s not what happens to us, but how we react to what happens to us!
“If your consciousness is clean, pure, innocent, the moment is not far away when you will explode into a luminous splendor. That’s what is known as enlightenment, or awakening, or self-realization” – Osho
Sun’s transit into Pisces is the “culmination” of the human spirit’s mission in this yearly astrological cycle. This is the time to “complete” whatever we have started at the time of the Spring Equinox last year.
February and March (the time before the Spring equinox) have always been a good time to de-clutter the house, the body, the mind and the soul.
Take your time to meditate, contemplate and ponder things, and prioritize them for the next cycle. Slow down and reflect what this astrological cycle has meant for you, and what you are moving towards or inviting in the next Sun cycle.
The following 4 weeks also make a great time to go for a detox, a purification ritual or try music or art therapy. This is not a time for serious physical or psychological work – be gentle with yourself.
If possible, try to take some days off work and go to a place in nature, preferably by the sea, or by a lake, far away from the business of the city. The best days to go for a mini-retreat are 16 to 18th of March (it is a weekend), just before the Spring Equinox on the 19th of March.
And while the thought of what is about to come into being is unknown, rest assured that a fresh start is just around the corner.
