Pisces (19 February – 20 March)
As the month of February begins, the emphasis is on rest and retreat. This is because you have three of the personal planets moving through Aquarius and the most hidden sector of your horoscope. This includes the Sun (identity), Mercury (mind/communication) and Venus (relating).
There may be a good reason why you have to slow down the pace, perhaps due to a health issue or the end of a job or work contract. Certainly, when you have a trio of planets in Aquarius, this is time for reflection and contemplation, rather than being actively out in the world.
You might be feeling physically weak or sense that your body needs more time to rest and be quiet for a while. The focus is on your inner world and being still so you can access your natural intuition. Catch up on your sleep and listen to your dreams. Being a Sun Pisces, your dream world can be a rich resource of insight and wisdom.
There is another reason why it’s important to slow down and take the pace slow. This is because of the major planetary event this month which is a Solar Eclipse on the 15th in this same sector of your horoscope.
A Solar Eclipse is effectively a turbo-powered New Moon, a symbol of new beginnings and the start of a new chapter. When you have a Solar Eclipse in the most hidden sector of your horoscope, it’s important to look at what you need to let go of or what needs to be released.
Also, if you’re charging ahead at full speed and you’re not moving forward mindfully through life, this eclipse could trip you up. Pay attention to what’s going on within you and don’t ignore or avoid any stirrings or deeper feelings.
This is particularly important for you because action planet Mars is now in Sagittarius and the most visible sector of your horoscope. Sagittarius is about being in the public eye and it rules your career and vocation, your status and reputation.
Mars is ambitious and driven but if you have too much going on in your life and you’re playing catch up, this won’t help your stress levels. Invariably, this is when life steps in to slow you down. Even if you work hard and play hard this month, also find time for relaxation. This is vital if you’re to have a successful month.
Admittedly, you may be more than ready to try and get ahead especially if you sense that you can achieve a lot with some extra effort. If you think back to 2015, 2016 and 2017, this is when you had Saturn, the taskmaster of the heavens, in Sagittarius and your career sector.
This slows you right down because Saturn represents limits and obstacles or, at the very least, you have to work hard to reap your rewards. You may feel you’re off the reins now and want to make the most of new career opportunities. Also, it’s important to note that in November 2018, your traditional ruling planet Jupiter enters Sagittarius for the first time in 12 years.
Jupiter will be strong in its sign of rulership throughout 2019 and this is when your career really takes off and you can fly high. Think of events this month as sowing the seeds for what’s to come. Ensure you’re running in the right direction and, if necessary, reorient your compass and fast.
Your confidence will be on the increase as the month progresses, so don’t worry if you’re feeling insecure or fear takes hold early in February. Once the Sun and Mercury move into your star sign Pisces on the 18th, this is when you can start to put yourself first and feel more comfortable out in the wide world.
This is the start of your birthday season and an excellent time to celebrate and have fun. It’s important to focus on your personal goals and aims and talk and think about what next. The more you’re excited about the future, the more of a confidence boost you receive and so it goes on in a positive cycle.
You’re back in flow from mid-month onwards with both Jupiter, your traditional ruler, and Neptune, your modern ruler, on your side. This is when it’s important to spend time visualising what next and utilise your creative and spiritual source to good effect.
As a Sun Pisces, you’re at your best when you feel inspired and enthused about life. You have a romantic soul so you need to seek out interests and activities that lie beyond the every day. When life becomes humdrum or mundane, your spirit fades.
Then it’s essential you recharge your batteries and replenish your soul in whichever way you choose. Do what works for you. Events around the 25th of the month may point the way forward.
The flip side of Neptune is confusion or delusion. Your star sign Pisces is strong, however, so channel your creative and romantic nature into worthwhile activities. Seek out meaning and purpose and lose yourself in a good way.
Finally, this is an interesting month when it comes to love. At the start of February, Venus in Aquarius can indicate unrequited feelings or a love affair you need to keep private. This changes entirely, however, on the 10th, when Venus moves into Pisces.
This is your time of year when you have the love planet in your star sign, just in time for Valentines Day. So make the most of this and know that when you look good, you feel good too. Venus adds the attraction factor to your personality so flirt and be seductive, especially if you’re looking for love or you want to spice up your love life.
The most romantic day of the year for you is often when Venus and Neptune, higher octaves of one another, come together in your star sign Pisces. This year, that event happens on the 21st. Make the most of this gorgeous alignment and give in to romance.
