You might find yourself feeling more empathetic and connected than usual—even with Mercury retrograde.
With Pisces season upon us from February 18 through March 19
Pisces knows the immense power of kindness, consideration, and care. It knows that developing the ability to have compassion—for ourselves and for those around us—is an invaluable investment to make in our lives, our world, and our futures. We set ourselves up for success when we focus on strengthening the connective tissue of our lives.
Empathetic to no end, Pisces knows no boundaries. This water sign can leak energy faster than a bottomless cup loses liquids. But this same trait can also find the cracks in the walls of any heart—and can permeate even the most guarded among us. It seeks to relieve pain through connection and is attuned to the suffering of others. It can spot a mistreated soul a mile away and always makes room at its table for those in need. Without defense, the fishes find it easy to give and receive love. Permeable, open, and available, Pisces knows that to hurt another is to hurt itself—and to love another is to be a channel for more of the same.
Seeking all avenues towards emotional availability, in general Pisces Season aims to sensitize us all. Reciprocity depends on our ability to disarm ourselves. In a world that is constantly teaching us how to be defended, that can be counterintuitive; when we only focus on attaining things, it’s much easier to live in a scarcity mindset. But when we focus on what we have to give, all kinds of opportunities and avenues to explore appear.
This Pisces Season starts out with Mercury still retrograde, making plans a little less solid than we’d perhaps like. Since this astrology is well-suited to reflecting, reworking, editing, imagining, and rethinking the thesis of our life, the last week of February and the first week of March are perfect times to envision the steps we’d like to take come spring. Potent creative incubators, these last days of winter are for dreaming, connecting, and embodying what it means to live a life with compassion at the core of it.
