"Very occasionally, if you pay really close attention, life doesn't suck."
-- Joss Whedon
The Sun moves into the mutable waters of Pisces on the February 18. Life is about to become a whole lot dreamier. Our need for escapism and serious soul time takes precedence now. There's also a strong urge to merge. Boundaries get blurred, and fantasy and reality become interchangeable for the next few weeks.
Pisces induces a search for the sublime and the higher realms where we can lose our self into something beyond. The longing for mystical or magical experiences becomes a daily need. There's a strong desire to submerge the ego the way we do when we fall asleep at night. Suddenly there's no longer that grasping, possessive, fear-based consciousness of "mine, mine, mine."
The desire for more sleep, dream time and retreating in general will also dominate our wills during this time. Pisces is one of the most sponge-like, hypersensitive of the zodiac. It has been dubbed the sign of pathological compassion because of the inability to NOT identify with everyone else's pain. Figuring out where one person ends and another begins becomes a blurry enterprise during this transit. Expect tremendous shapeshifting, duality and illusions to throw your normal experience of reality into some hazy semblance of a poem.
Pisces shows us the way back to the invisible and glamorous realms. We have to move beyond our ordinary and limited perceptions and connect back to vision and infinite potential. This is the time to channel from greater sources. If you can dream it, you can channel it. And then -- you can manifest it!
