This week brings a new astrological season, one that invites forgiveness and release, intuition and rest. As we step into Pisces season, healing awaits.
There are twelve signs that make up the zodiac, each representing a certain archetype and way of living, being, perceiving, doing, and expressing. Each sign holds a unique frequency and its own invitations that ultimately lead us home to more of ourselves. Within us exists each of these twelve zodiac signs, and we can feel the shift in these frequencies and invitations as the Sun journeys through the signs and shapes our perceptions, the way we relate to the world around us, and our focus and interests each month.
February 18, 2023, brings one of these shifts as the Sun moves from Aquarius and into Pisces. It is during this time that the Pisces within us surfaces and permeates our beings, shaping our reality and sense of self.
A water sign, Pisces relates to the etheric, spiritual, and mystical realms. It is the dreamer and the intuitive. It is the drop of water that cannot be separated from the entire ocean, the spark of energy held by the vibrational current of existence. It is also the last of the twelve zodiac signs. As such, it represents the final journey of the astrological year before the Sun moves into Aries, the first sign of the zodiac, on March 21, 2023, and begins a new cycle.
Pisces has a way of blurring the boundaries between self and all that is. When the Sun—which in astrology represents our sense of self, identity, and individuality—comes into the realm of water, our structured identity is invited to ease and ultimately cease to exist so that when the time comes, it can be reborn and created anew.
This season touches the waters from which many mystical, religious, and transcendent movements were born. It brings about an emptying of Self to merge with a creator and reveals to us the divine paradox of surrendering Self only to find its truth is boundless, formless, and one with everything that is. It is simultaneously letting go of any defined Self and realizing Self is all.
This week and throughout Pisces season, the invitation is to dissolve any and all barriers that stand between you and life. This week begins a month-long journey into the re-sensitizing of ourselves after much of the world has taught us to desensitize. It is a time to open your heart and allow in love, beauty, art, sound, healing, energy, prayer, forgiveness, and receptivity. It is a lens through which we are invited to look and to remember that to be fully alive, one must be open.
The last season of the astrological year represents closure. It is the liminal space in time bridging the past and future, a moment for us to reflect, complete, heal, forgive, and release the journey we have been on since April, 2022. As this new season begins, we are invited to rest. To go inward and contemplate. And to return to our intuitive guidance that knows the most nourishing path of preparation for the new astrological year.
Sound and music. Soft movement and prayer. Artistic expression and compassionate relating. Intuitive knowing and mystical remembering. Forgiveness, releasing, and anything that brings you closer to the divine. These are our companions throughout this time. This is where great healing can occur.
Throughout this season, feel into the true nature of Self that goes beyond the physical, the tangible, the logical, and the known. Explore the unknown that exists beyond time and space so that when you are invited to be reborn in Aries season, you are present and existing in awareness of all that is.
