The Sun enters the sign of Pisces on February 18th at 3:50 p.m., Mountain Time. Pisces is a water sign and is associated with Neptune, the ultimate water planet. Pisces are soft, creative, psychic and spiritual. They are the dreamers of the Zodiac and are often in a bubble and feel otherworldly. This is the sign of altered states of consciousness, either through meditation and ritual or alcohol and drugs. They get altered one way or another. Typical Pisces occupations include healer, counselors, artists, musicians, clergy or designers. If you need someone to hold your hand . . . ask a Pisces.
The big news this month is about Saturn, who is entering the sign of Pisces. Saturn has an orbit of around 29 years, so he stays in a sign for approximately 2 ½ years. Saturn will remain in the sign of Pisces from March 7th until February 15th, 2026. Saturn is the planet of structure and wants to contain his projects so they will be sturdy. Water is hard to contain and organize, so Saturn isn’t very comfortable in this fluid and vague sign of Pisces. Hopefully, this will bring a phase of disciplined compassion to the world, through foundations and philanthropy. Personally, we can all use it to bolster up the weaker parts of our lives. What needs help? Now is the time to find solutions for long-standing problems. I’ve written an entire article on Saturn entering Pisces in this newsletter.
The last week in February and the first week in March will bring a fun pair of planets together. Venus will join Jupiter in Aries on March 1st. If you have spring fever and want to take a little road trip – this is your chance. Try a new destination and be adventurous. Extreme sports favored.
Regarding the visible planets, we’re in for a treat this month. Brilliant Venus and Jupiter will join and will be easily visible in the evening sky after sunset above the western horizon. This stunning pairing is worthy of having a planet-watching party, folks. I know that’s what I’m going to do. Together they are planets of celebration, so turn it into as wild of a party as you can muster. Higher in the sky will be Mars. Saturn is the only planet that is just barely visible in the predawn sky. This month is all about seeing the planets after sunset. Enjoy!
See you in Aries for the Spring Equinox.
