The Sun enters the watery sign of Pisces, the final sign of the zodiac before the cycle begins again with Aries, herald of spring. Pisces is the culmination of all the other signs — their experiences, gifts, and failures, and thus straddles the spectrum between the conscious and unconscious worlds. Its symbol of two fish endlessly circling one another, like a yin and yang, portrays this balance of opposite forces. Indeed, Pisces can seem to have two personalities. On one hand, they are selfless and driven to be of service and understanding. On the other, they are prone to feckless flightiness.
Pisces season marks the end of winter and focuses us on the deepest reaches of our inner worlds, where we go to escape the bleakness outside. It is from this space where we can most recognize our inherent connection to the rest of humanity, which should drive us toward selfless deeds, and, in return, liberate us as spring arrives.
