The Sun enters the sign of Pisces on February 18th at 4 a.m., Mountain Time. Pisces is the last sign of the Zodiac before the Spring Equinox and Aries. Since it’s the last, it is the most inward of them all and can easily reflect more on what is on the inside than what is in the outside world. Many Pisces are artists, musicians, healers and therapists. Every Pisces is psychic to a certain extent. They trust their intuition, which will always be their guide. There is quite a sensitive side of Pisces. Because of their empathy, they are often pure channels. There is also a side of this sign that likes living in another reality. I call it the Pisces dream world.
Even though the Sun has entered Pisces, there is a big group of Planets still in Aquarius. Of course, the slower planets, Jupiter and Saturn entered Aquarius on the Winter Solstice 2020. In addition, Mercury and Venus are also in Aquarius now too. Even though Pisces suggests calm and spirituality, this month will start out with more of a feisty and unusual vibe. Venus will enter Pisces on February 26th, which will bring more of a usual Pisces feel. If you wanted to make some changes to your home, Venus will help you make things more beautiful.
There is one major planetary aspect that happens on February 17th – 18th, just as the Sun enters Pisces. The slow planets Saturn and Uranus are square to each other, which will happen three times during 2021. Saturn will retrograde and form a red line square to Uranus on February 17, June 14th and December 24th. So, it will basically dominate the main astrology for the entire year. To make it easy: Saturn represents the old and Uranus represents the new. There is a clash between the status quo and future right now. Many want to keep things the same and actually reminisce about the good old days. While the revolutionary Uranus can’t wait to digitize everything. There is a need to compromise and come to the middle with this angle to get anything done. Balance is the keyword here. The ideal is making change while still honoring tradition. The beginning of this year-long challenge starts mid-February. In our personal lives, what do you want to change and what do you want to save? It might be delicate decisions.
Regarding the visible planets, Jupiter and Saturn can now be seen in the predawn sky. They aren’t as close as they were in the evening sky on the Winter Solstice, but they are still quite close together and easy to spot right before sunrise in the east. Mars is the only visible planet in the evening sky now and will be visible most of the night.
See you in Aries for the Spring Equinox!
