19th February - 20th March
When the sun enters Pisces it's the time of 'breaking waters'. The snow is melting and what was previously solid ground and crystal clear ice turns into slush and mud. Pisces is a very watery sign and may likewise rapidly change moods from seemingly stable to emotional outbreaks that seem to come from nowhere. Pisces is like a boundless ocean; it knows no limits and seeks to transcend ego boundaries. He may very intuitive and even psychic, picking up on feelings, thought-forms and ethereal entities, but because of its blurred sense of identity may not realise that where they are coming from. They are human chameleons and can make great actors, as they easily adapt and slip into different characters, though sometimes find it difficult to slip out of their role again when the show is over. He may identify with another person, group or ideal and his psychological openness makes Pisces very vulnerable to abuse. Pisces may seek to overcome his ego-boundaries through belief in a greater power or ideal and can be very self sacrificing in service to that power, especially if they are spiritually inclined, but may easily lose touch with reality. Sometimes the self-sacrifice is directed at caring for another person, though there is a danger of co-dependency. Pisces is likely to feel the pain and suffering of the world within his own soul and may become depressive. He may seek escape in drugs, alcohol or some other obsession and because of its boundlessness easily oversteps his capacity. More than any other sign Pisces needs a shape to fill, a role to play, a task to fulfil to be truly happy. Pisces can benefit greatly from Venus, who when in Pisces will turn into an ocean of love.
