Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) — This is a sober time in your life. This year in particular stands in strong contrast to many past years, because Saturn is in your sign and is now the dominant energy in your personal world. This is the “get a grip” quality you are likely to be feeling. There are other ways this is coming across. One is the message to simplify and clear space in your mind and your physical environment. Another is to mature into yet another stage and catch up with yourself. And finally, you are being called to materialize what may have only been a dream in past times. I am talking about the long influence of Neptune in your sign, an energy which is extraordinarily difficult to manifest or manage. It sends messages that may only seem irrelevant or like pure fantasy. Yet with the addition of Saturn, and its sorting out process plus its materializing property, you have a new ability to make substantial that which has previously only been a projection on fog. One suggestion: at this time, rely on others as little as possible. They are unlikely to be able to help much, except for specific tasks — if they prove trustworthy. If you want somebody you can trust, trust yourself.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) — Years ago — like 15 of them — the great (and now late) horoscope writer Rocky Gardiner commented in a Pisces entry about the seemingly endless journey of Neptune through Aquarius (1998-2011). Well, since that ended 12 years ago, you’ve had Neptune in your birth sign, and that is another seemingly endless and largely invisible experience. It’s been so long that you don’t know much else. This is an environmental condition that keeps disappearing, and it includes the sense of being invisible or alone. However, I have found in long years working with Neptune that this is largely an illusion. It’s like a fog that you must learn to navigate and see through. That will mean making an intelligent effort, though also taking a practical approach. At times, it’s difficult to see what is bothering you, or to identify what you need. The forthcoming Full Moon in your sensitive 12th house will provide you with an interior view and a way to think about your situation. You must bring the motivation to improve your life in tangible ways. However, from the look of your chart, you have external support available that you can tap into, which means people you can work with. Stick to those with a positive outlook, and/or those who have proven to be helpful in the past. Then, raise your sail, and get about what you know must be gotten about.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  — You may feel like you’re under a lot of pressure, but you’re also getting a lot done. Pisces experiences everything from a psychic and emotional perspective first. This creates a distortion when you have the sense that the walls are closing in, but really, you’re a little behind or short on cash.

The effect is Saturn in your birth sign. I suggest you work with it, because if you do, you can transform your life — slowly but dependably. Saturn is about taking on responsibility for yourself and authority over your affairs. It’s also about the wise and respectful use of time, and respect generally. Along the way, you may feel like you’re in the squeeze — like you don’t have enough, or like time is running out. Under the influence of Saturn, time must become your ally.

This will teach you to stay a step ahead of yourself, and to prioritize what must happen and what you want to happen rather than what you think you’re supposed to do. Though Saturn is not about “consciousness” generally, responding appropriately is all about raising awareness and learning how to make decisions. And with Saturn, the greatest of the taskmasters, you can accomplish what you set out to do.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  — Your ruling planet Jupiter has taken up residence in the angle of your chart associated with ideas, written communication, commerce and community. This is Taurus, your 3rd solar house. For as airy-fairy as people think Pisces is (and many pick this up as self-image), you like your ideas practical, solid and most of all, beautiful. That the Pisces planet has arrived here suggests that you’re also the factor bringing wisdom and imagination. To put it mildly, all matters regarding the 3rd house will receive some of this nourishment — drops of Jupiter, quoting an old song.

I realize the world is not exactly handing out encouragement for people who are involved in anything so sublime as an idea, or something made by hand. Yet you have a special pass right now. Yes, you will need to maintain your focus from day to day. You will need to bring continuity to your thoughts (rather than submitting to the chaos of digital conditions). And if you can do these things, and have a touch of faith in yourself, you will blaze a path made of small, meaningful steps.

Because Taurus is involved, that brings in what is called preserver energy. Maintain what you’ve gained so far; honor what you’ve earned; give yourself double credit for having accomplished anything meaningful during our near-total drought of wisdom. Focus your goals on specific things you want to do, rather than wanting to be known for anything. Glamor, including being starstruck, are two of the most serious pitfalls that can afflict a sincere person. There is always the temptation to “be special.” You don’t need to worry about that at all; you already are, and you’re also seen that way. Skip that part in favor of being real, and focusing only on what you know comes from your creative essence. The world will catch up with you sooner or later.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for May 2023 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  — Your ruling planet Jupiter is about to join the Sun and Mercury in the angle of your chart associated with buying and selling. The fact that Taurus is located here says you have something of value to offer, and Jupiter will remind you of that in some bold new ways.

Yet there is always a translation to get your wares to the market, and to establish their worth in a commercial context. That sentence includes one of the most important themes of the coming year of Jupiter in Taurus. Too often, people confuse the challenge of making something marketable with something not having actual worth. This can be a source not just of frustration but of a real struggle with self-esteem.

And many of the sublime qualities of life that are of value to Pisces people are taken for granted by much of the world. It’s a lot easier to sell a guitar than it is to sell a song. And even the people who are great at selling songs and can fill a whole theater must make their profits selling tee-shirts and programs. Had you and I invented the world, we would not have done things this way. However, that is the way they are. One of the deciding factors between commercial success and failure is cooperation. And this, too, is a value that is under a lot of stress, as too many among us fall for some new version of “every man for himself.”

You must rely on yourself as much as possible, and winnow down your associations with others to those who support you creatively, or facilitate your financial success — and not waste your time on the rest. Thankfully, taskmaster Saturn is in your sign and on your side right now, and will help you make any difficult decisions.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for April 2023 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  — Saturn is gradually helping you get a grip on your time and on your life. Stage one of this may be the awakening to how difficult this has been, for how long. It’s been five years since Chiron left your sign, which provided you with a kind of lens or filter through which you could see and manage your affairs. It’s been difficult living without this, though now the rising tide of fantasy (Neptune) has been joined by the reality principle (Saturn). To get the maximum benefit from Saturn, work with its core elements: honoring the passage of time, respect for when things must happen, taking authority over all matters of personal business, and reminding yourself there is a line where you end and others begin. This last one may be the most significant of them all. It’s something that every Pisces I know struggles with, which is because Pisces is the delta of Venus, the ocean that refuses no river. It’s why you care enough about animals in distress to actually help them; it’s why you will open your home to someone who you know needs a refuge. These are essential healing elements in the human condition we are in, though you need to erect a fence around your garden, and make sure that your door locks work properly. It will help if you slow down the time between when you’re asked for something and when you say yes. Keep track of others in your life who are willing to take responsibility for the world around them, and delegate some tasks to them. You are seeing that you need to manage your workload and life flow consciously and carefully, and attend to many personal details you have overlooked in the past. With this approach, Saturn always gives more than it takes away, and helps eliminate much that was not serving you.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  — Amidst many other changes that both you and the world will experience this month, Saturn is entering your birth sign for the first time since 1993. You will read mixed reviews about this, though I take a positive view of Saturn as the representative of the reality principle. I know this is not very popular these days, but ultimately, Saturn represents the ability to work upward from the bottom line. Its presence is an urgent answer to having lived with Neptune in your sign since 2011 — what you might call the fantasy principle. Neptune also has the effect of making you more vulnerable to outside influences, and it can cloud your perception and your judgment.

Most significantly, it often has an isolating feeling. Saturn drops a whole new lens in front of your perception of the world, and your self-concept. Allow its presence to redefine you as a serious, practical person. This is associated with both commitment, and tapping your inner authority, instead of having to rely on outer authority to keep you in place. Another part of the Saturn principle is being your own boss to the point where you have mastery over your affairs. And it will provide you with a firm boundary between yourself and all who choose to influence you in some way.

You have needed this for a while: a kind of sealant around your psychic doors and windows, and a more substantial definition of yourself that you honor. While there will be plenty of adjustments to make, those are long overdue. So, too, is a period of building and expansion — which in this world may seem to be against insurmountable odds. Saturn is offering you something you can work with, and you have many other factors working in your favor, particularly a newfound depth of self-respect.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for February 2023 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) — In March, Saturn enters your sign for the first time since May 21, 1993. What were the following few years like for you? At the start of any major cycle — and this qualifies — it’s a good idea to review the previous one. Meanwhile, the past three years of Saturn in Aquarius have been the consistent astrological factor of the crisis we have all lived through. So another relevant before-and-after measure would be to note what you’ve experienced between March 2020 and today. There sure was a lot happening in the world, though what of your most private and intimate inner reality? While it’s usually easy to avoid this here on Planet Digital, where everything including your brain and memory and imagination exist outside your body on a little hunk of metal, silicone and glass, Saturn has drawn you inward, toward the center of yourself. This is a feature of the 12th place — the sign before yours. This has been an enforced reconciliation with your inner reality, on all levels: from your internal map of your family and social reality to the most intimate and unusual thoughts and feelings of your psyche. This has squeezed out all kinds of unexpected material, which may have included an ongoing experiment in the true nature of your sexuality. This is not territory most people are comfortable with. Once you are aware of something and admit it, it’s implied that others will know it too — which may well be the case. What if everything about you were revealed? What if you could have no secrets, because all minds are connected? That is your thought experiment of the month.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for January 2023 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) — Jupiter has departed your sign and entered Aries, which is the start of a new cycle for you. It’s true that these happen in a diversity of styles (such as the Capricorn New Moon now underway). Jupiter in your own sign on and off through 2022 has left you with a sense of your potential, and has filled in more cracks than you may imagine. Whatever stresses you were under, or cracks you were filling in, you fared much better thanks to Jupiter’s presence. The Aries stage of the journey, which lasts through May, is about gathering your resources, and also, recognizing what they are. You might conduct an inventory of your abilities, your natural talents and your tools of the trade. A lot gets overlooked in our world, where there is so much activity, and where there are so many material possessions that we forget we have them. Before you set out to acquire something new, check your inventory and determine whether you already have it. I would remind you that the most important thing you have is yourself. Most people do not know this. We are taught over and over again to seek nearly anything and everything outside ourselves. Now is an excellent time to turn that around.
