Pisces is a mutable water sign. It is emotional and flexible, able to navigate the vast and shifty waters of feeling. Pisces feels comfortable in a world that is a little fuzzy around the edges, shying away from the sharp definition of facts and figures. It sees the world in multi-coloured shades, instead of black and white, and is able to see a morsel of truth in many different points of view. If Pisces has a reputation of being hard to pin down, it's not because it wants to deceive, but because it does not believe that there’s a single fact of the matter. For Pisces, reality is fluid and changeable, barely distinguishable from the world of dreams and the creative imagination. That's why Pisces feels happiest when it can express its rich inner world and make use of its unique artistic, empathetic and spiritual sensibilities. As the last sign of the zodiac, Pisces is world-wary, its skin porous and permeable. Like someone who has seen and done it all, Pisces seeks the thrill of life beyond the mundane, to experience unity and a state of grace. This may be expressed creatively or through religious and humanitarian pursuits.
Sun is entering Pisces just as Venus and Mars exit the sign. Mars in Pisces and Venus in Pisces have blown up a storm, agitating our dreams, expectations and romantic longings and urging us to believe that our salvation is just around the corner. Now Sun's entry into Pisces will shed light on our dreams and yearnings, as well as our suffering and our capacity for compassion and transcendence. With Mars and Venus in dynamic Aries from the 20th, just as Sun settles in sensitive Pisces, there is a danger of coming on too strong, just when some of us are feeling vulnerable and sensitive. On the upside, there is also a potential for initiative to realise a creative or romantic dream. This will be an emotional time, when reason may fall by the wayside. Thankfully, Mercury is still in Aquarius, throwing a measure of objectivity and logic into the proceedings.
Great things to do with Sun in Pisces:
- Let inspiration flow! Get creative: write, paint, dance...

- Pursue your dreams - make it happen!

Weekend 7th-8th March Sun conjunct Chiron in Pisces
