On Monday, the Sun will leave airy Aquarius for the seas of watery Pisces, joining Mercury, Mars, Chiron and Neptune. In fact the first thing the Sun will do is conjoin Neptune in Pisces on 20 February, loosening boundaries between what is and what might be. There will a minimum of five planets in water signs for the next month, creating a fluid, ever changing atmosphere.
Last year at this time Saturn was still in Libra so this is the first time when the Sun travels through Pisces with the solid support of Saturn in Scorpio. It is my feeling this may turn out to be very beneficial because Saturn can provide much needed structure for very mutable Pisces. In watery Scorpio Saturn is harmoniously trine to Pisces, a gently supportive aspect. We have getting a preview of this tomorrow when Mars in Pisces is trine Saturn.
Pluto in Capricorn is another powerful entity providing serious backup for Pisces. This is enhanced by the ongoing Saturn-Pluto sextile/mutual reception. Those who have personal planets and Ascendant at 11° in Pisces should notice increased resolve and a willingness to tackle the tough issues.
I almost hate to mention the upcoming Mercury retrograde in Pisces from 23 February to 17 March. Thankfully Mercury doesn’t make it back to conjoin Neptune again . . . once was enough. It remains to be seen how much difference having Saturn and Pluto aspecting this spacey Mercury will make. Sure can’t hurt!
A rather odd issue I associate with Pisces (and with Moon-Neptune aspects) is being emotionally unavailable. I believe this has to do with the fact Pisces, like Capricorn and Aquarius, is one of the signs that represent the collective. There is a big difference between being kind and loving to many people and doing the same in a one-on-one relationship. It can take the shine off your love affair when you realize your Pisces lover interacts with other people with as much warmth and compassion as they show you. Neptune has no boundaries and its compassion has no limits, something easier to see as wonderful in the abstract. Perhaps for Pisces, it is indeed easier to love many than just one . . . not to mention far less stressful. Does this resonate with those of you who have Sun, Moon or Venus in Pisces (or those planets aspecting Neptune)?
