The Sun enters Pisces tonight (February 18th) or early February 19th, depending on your time zone. The Sun's ingress may trigger some some issues in advance of the February 22nd Virgo Full Moon, and there's also a March 8th New Moon eclipse at 18 degrees Pisces. Lots of emotional and psychic drain plugs being removed this month.
Pisces is full of contradictions. Highly sensitive, but impersonal. Swooningly romantic, but it's always about more than the partner/crush. Pisces is uniquely equipped to reach out and touch everyone, including half-glimpsed ideals of people who don't exist. This is why release is so crucial for this sign: it's easy to get hooked into something/someone that's not real. But that grasp of unreality gives Pisces the ability to comprehend almost anything.
"It's all possible" says Pisces.
"Nothing's possible" says Pisces.
The Pisces area of your chart is where you can heal, escape, wallow, dissolve or transcend limits. It's where you can travel the farthest or wake up at the end of the journey and discover that you haven't left your bed. This area will be brimming with influences over the next month or so. There are the two lunations mentioned above. Also, Mercury's ingress (March 5th) and Venus' ingress (March 12th). And of course, the South Node, Chiron, Neptune and Ceres are in this sign (there's a Jupiter/Chiron opposition on February 23rd).
March 12th to March 20th (when the Sun enters Aries) will feature a concentration of energy in Pisces. The dream may come into focus, or go down the drain. You can achieve peak moments of healing, or disorientation. Know that even when you're helpless, you always have a choice. You can choose to give up, or let go of what's sucking you dry. You can choose to feel sorry for yourself, or take stock of what's not working and change course. You can choose to lie, or face reality. Granted, it's not easy to make clear choices when Pisces energy is swelling, but you still have the final say.
One thing you can bank on: if you have to force it, forget about it. What's meant to be will be, and as much as some of you probably loath that expression, it's the Pisces logo. You simply cannot use force when Pisces energy is strong. The more you struggle and micromanage, the further you'll drift from your goal. If it doesn't feel natural, then you're moving against the current. This doesn't mean give up on your goals, but you will need to differentiate between the correct path and the dead end.
