Over the next few weeks we will see numerous planets float into the watery, empathetic sign of Pisces. Mars already made the move on February 1st. Mercury will dive in on the 5th, the Sun on the 18th, and Venus on the 25th. During the month, we should see our actions, communications, self-expression, and declarations of love become more adaptive, compassionate, and devotional.
What’s especially significant about this influx is that as they enter Pisces, each will connect to Neptune, Pisces’ ruling planet. This Neptune union will further Pisceanize our perceptions as it’s M.O. is to dissolve the hard edges, reminding us that everything is really much more connected than we consider it to be upon first glance.
While this Neptune connection may further spiritualize our senses, calling forth a deep desire for union and an unconditional love connection, it also has the potential of taking us for a swim in a sea of illusion and confusion. If we don’t have a clear sense of who should be responsible for what, a strong Pisces and Neptune energetic can inspire us to overstep our boundaries, which can lead to self-sacrifice, martyrdom, and enabling behavior.
So during this time, it’s important to dive into your heart, finding that feeling of grace that comes through a sense of awe-filled connection, while also maintaining a heightened sense of clarity. Here are some self-care strategies that may be helpful.
* Meditation: Meditation gives you a time-out from swirl of everyday life and an experience of centering. It allows for the bridging of conscious and subconscious thoughts and feelings, further tuning you into your faith and intuition. The practice of meditation can help to catalyze a state of inner peace.
* Pink Yarrow Flower Essence: This elixir can promote a sense of empathetic fluidity while also helping us to strengthen our personal boundaries. It’s great for periods when we find ourselves with a greater tendency to emotionally merge and get lost in another (which may be more of the norm during this heightened Pisces/Neptune period).
* Be Aquatic: Whether you go for a walk by the sea, take dips in a pool, or relax in a bath, connecting with the water can be very healing during this time. Being in the water and/or observing its flow can help you to tune into and more powerfully resonate with the natural energetics that will be so prevalent in February.
