The Sun–the source of our vitality–enters Pisces on February 18–just three minutes after our second Aquarius New Moon. Pisces is the sign of the Dreamer, the Artist, and the Mystic. The solar Pisces month encourages us to renew our vitality by nourishing these parts of ourselves. Grant some “me time” to the inner dreamer, artist, or mystic. These characters are most alive, perhaps, in the affairs of the house where Pisces falls in your chart. But you don’t need to be that precise. Just vow this month to face the sky with your Mystic self. Clear from your mind how astronomers have named the stars or astrologers have interpreted the planets. Simply enter the night and see if there is a twinkling light—a star or planet–that catches your notice. Settle your mind and ask: “Do you have a message for me?”
The answer may come in words. Or it may not. It may come as a feeling, a sensation, a new conviction. It may come immediately or hours later. Your work is simply to be receptive and reverent. Thank the sky by agreeing to bring this message into your world—through a new decision or action, a changed perspective, an inspiration you share with another. You may even want to name your star and commune with it throughout the month.
Working this way requires a special dreamy kind of clarity. Your conscious mind may be suspicious. It might diminish your reverence by accusing you of just pretending. The very phrase “just pretending” reveals how our culture typically views Pisces perception. As children, before we heard this phrase, we were wiser. We knew that we had this special ability. We could flow through our days like mermaids through water. We knew how to listen to stars and how to get help from the fairies whenever we needed it most. This is the month to remember all that.
