You already know that Pisces (February 19-March 21) is the sign of the fish. This is no accident. In some ways, Pisceans are like ocean creatures, in some ways they are like the ocean itself. We’ve all got at least a little* of this sign in us and managing your primal watery nature can be a challenge, Pisces, so here are some tips for the Fish in all of us:
The ocean is the primal symbol for the imagination—and Pisces, you are deeply in touch with your imagination. You are a visionary. Your imagination is a rich, lush place that you should visit often and draw on liberally—because there’s always more there and you will never run out of fancies, dreams, imaginings, daydreams, visions and fantasies. Write them down. Make them into art. Share them with people—especially those around you who have forgotten how to dream.
This connection with the ocean blesses Pisceans with oceanic awareness. It’s a sort of global intuition, which comes from the fact that fish feel in every direction. Fish don’t use their eyes as much as they use their whole skin surface. As a Piscean, you feel “vibes” or vibrations exactly as a fish does. You live in 360-degree awareness, responding to events all around you, whether you know it or not. This intuition is Pisces’ main superpower.
Your global intuition gives you a special sensitivity to your environment. It spreads your awareness out, improving your peripheral awareness but making it hard to concentrate your attention and also making you easily influenced by your environment. Place a Piscean in the wrong environment and watch that person disintegrate, while a Piscean in the right environment will thrive enormously. Create good environments for yourself, Pisces—it’s worth the effort.
Pisces, when people accuse you of being flaky, remember that by dwelling on land, you’re out of your element all the time. Have you ever thought about the world of a fish? A fish is surrounded and supported by the water it lives in all the time while humans live on the ground and are subject to gravity. A fish never falls down—and has no corresponding desire to build. The famous Piscean laziness is a natural outcome of belonging in a world without ambition. It leaves your average zodiacal Fish with an enviable ability to relax and go with the flow. This means, Pisces, that you are supremely equipped for the magical state we call “flow,” because it’s your home.
Pisces, your imaginative nature makes you highly empathic. You can easily imagine yourself walking a mile in the other person’s moccasins and your gentle ocean waves can quietly get right inside a person. You intuitively know how to bond to others, but beware of sucking others in or of unconsciously crossing their boundaries, because not all ocean currents are benevolent. You could be someone’s undertow and they could get lost in you. Once you’ve gotten your tendrils of awareness and affection into all the little corners of someone’s life, when you pull away, they may suddenly feel empty, bereft, lost in an empty void that used to be filled with a loving presence—you. Being loved by you is special—bestow it wisely.
* You don’t have to be a Pisces to be a Piscean type. That’s because you could be an Aries (or any other sign) yet have a bunch of planets in your chart in Pisces—enough to tip the balance and leave you feeling more like Fish than Ram.

“Wake up!” says Saturn. “I gave you a chance to see your responsibility recently. Now I’m telling you again: this is a time of testing.”
Today is a Pivotal Day
When a planet turns retrograde it makes a pivot in the sky and also creates a metaphorically “pivotal” experience for human beings.
Today, that planet is Saturn. It’s as if Saturn is telling us, “You can’t go on avoiding responsibility forever. I’m delivering a wake-up call.”
