When are Pisces dates?
Pisces dates are from February 18/19 (depending on where you are on the planet) until March 20th. Pisces is the final sign of the zodiac wheel, meaning it marks the end of the astrological calendar, ending on exactly the Spring Equinox. Pisces, therefore, is also the final sign of the winter months, before ushering in spring and the new astrological year with Aries being the first sign to follow.
What are Pisces’ traits and personality?
Pisces traits include the element of water and the modality of mutability. As we have already learned, each sign is a unique combination of one element and one modality, which is like the main “quality of the sign” and in this case a sign embodying attributes of changeability and transformation. Pisces is, therefore, the only sign which is a combination of both water and mutability, and in my opinion the queen sign of fluidity (did I mention my sun sign is Pisces?!). It therefore couldn’t be more perfect that the symbol of Pisces is two fish, swimming in opposite directions. Since mutable types are known to be versatile, flexible and adaptable, and water signs revered for their intuitive, emotional sensitivity, as far as pisces traits go we have here a complex sign with indeed a lot of depth.
Pisces sign: Fantasy vs Reality
Known as the “mysterious one” it comes as no surprise that Pisces’ ruling planet is none-other than Neptune herself, the planet infamous for intuition and healing. Neptune is all about mysticism, creativity and imagination and she is here to show us where our delusions are. Again we recall the symbol of the two fish for, also representing the contrast between fantasy and reality which can be characterized by Pisces sign. In a way Pisces sign has one foot on this planet and the other up in the stars, the sign most easily accessing the ether realms. So whether or not you have Pisces sign in your natal chart, this next astrological month will be a time of greater accessibility to a more spiritual existence and access to your subconscious. Make note of your dreams, explore what is underneath the surface in your everyday existence and pay special attention to any serendipities or coincidences this month, for the veil is thin at this time of year.
And remember, all bodies of water need a container, otherwise the water will dry up leaving nothing behind. So while you may be higher up in the clouds this month, be sure to keep one foot on the ground, dear ones, so you can enjoy this time of heightened magic without drifting out to sea.
