Pisces Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Mutable Water. Your ruling planets are Neptune and Jupiter.

You are slowly beginning to make the connection, Pisces. Your influence is bigger than you might have previously supposed. This month is a time of reevaluation of not only your impact on the world around you, but the impact of the world of Spirit within your heart. When you remember your gifts you become a rock amidst the turbulent seas of circumstance. Financial benefits accrue and, more, you can communicate your deepest truth without fear of rejection. You have it in your power to change the world after all, when you start with the part of it that you can completely control, namely yourself.

As the month begins, you are in a sensitive place, looking to the future but hyper-aware of the past, with an eye to transcending it. You may find yourself turning to the inside as a method of connecting with a more all-encompassing sense of life as evolutionary development. At the time of the New Moon on Saturday April 5th, these feelings are intensified. You are facing a basic although not extreme conflict between your present reality versus your future self, whoever you might turn out to be in the process. With the burst of energy accompanying this lunation, security issues are on your mind, and you may find that good luck with finances is both a draw and a somewhat elusive goal. You are eventually shooting for a sense of security based on less tangible investments. Partners in your life may serve as a reality-check right now in your search for values, both in criticizing your efforts at moving beyond the material and in mentoring you through it. With the First Quarter Moon of the following weekend, you will find some additional bumpiness in the road of your progress. A new you attempting to be birthed, and the backward drag of prior conception seems to be trying its best to hold you back, since old habits die hard. You might take solace in realizing that biological life itself is a process of constant building up and breaking down. The Full Moon that comes along a week later, on the weekend of April 19th and 20th, may provide a sense of relief, and also represents another turning point in your maturation. All this month, you are finding a delicious sense of movement that only slightly resembles a roller-coaster ride. It depends on how you look at things; there could be a queasy feeling to be so thoroughly and definitely leaving the past behind, or else the excitement a traveler feels when approaching an alien shore, and is able to discern the contour of the coastline for the very first time.
