This Week in Astrology With Nick Newmont: February 18-24th, The Sun in Pisces

This week the Sun moves from Aquarius into Pisces. Most Astrological sites you visit will list the time the Sun spends in Pisces from February 19 to March 20. Those dates are affected by the world’s time zones. Specifically on the west coast, the Sun goes into Pisces on Thursday the 18 at 9:22 p.m. PST and moves into Aries on Saturday, March 19 at 9:19 p.m. PDT. (We move the clock forward on March 13).

This week we shift from Uranus consciousness, which triggered our desire for knowledge and independence away from Capricorn’s rigidity, to Neptune’s sensitivity. During Pisces, we must stay the course of action and not get caught up in the dreamy, floaty Neptune influence. Pisces creates a very altruistic and extremely empathetic feeling. It’s great to help people but not to the degree of pitying and taking on their pain. Also, if we do help someone and they do not reciprocate, you are not a victim, so do not pity yourself.

Pisces is the most sensitive sign in zodiac: trust what you feel! If you are a Pisces, remember your glyph is the two fish swimming in opposite directions. Make up your mind and go with it. And stop trying to swim upstream. Trust your feelings and stop worrying about the other guy’s feelings; they will be okay. Your penchant for taking on guilt is unparalleled. Sorry, but it’s true.

During Pisces, the twelfth sign of the zodiac, draw upon the strength of the other eleven signs. Use the energy of each sign and allow the time in Pisces to be a culmination of all the signs. So, along with the Neptune/Pisces sensitivity, empower yourself with positive attributes of the entire zodiac and finish what you started eleven months ago. Next month, when the Sun moves into Aries, we begin a new Solar cycle and get our needed spring, fresh start.

Have a great week everyone!
