Pisces season runs from roughly February 21 to March 21. Pisces is mutable water, and it is cold and wet. Extremely passive and receptive, it totally goes with the mutable flow. Wetness merges with others and blends with its environment. We come to the end of the line in Pisces season and might be running low on battery by now.
However, there is a sense of hope because, at the end of Pisces, we have the beginning, like the fool card in the tarot. The end of Pisces is the spring equinox! But the honour of housing the information for that has to go to Aries. Right now, we are in deep Pisces waters and the quickening. So much is stirring beneath!
Pisces Season Meaning
During this part of the year, we prepare for the return of the sunlight and more active and fertile times. It’s time to clear out the rubbish of the old cycle and prepare for the new start in spring. Pisces season is a great time for getting your house in order and setting new intentions.
The power Of Imagination
Pisces is the sign of imagination, so it is also an excellent time to set intentions for the new astrological year. Apart from the obvious preparations for the Spring equinox, there are no pagan festivals during Pisces season. It might be a perfect time just to get some rest!
In Romans times February was the last month of the year, which makes more sense in terms of the wheel of the year. March then is the first, so Pisces is unusual in that its sun dates overlap the end and the beginning. Pisces is a sign associated with great sensitivity, and being a water sign also tears!
Pisces Tears of Joy
We often feel extra emotional when we have to say goodbye to old ways, but we can also shed tears of joy when we start something new and exciting. Pisces has that hopeful, euphoric energy about it.
Just look at the tarot cards that symbolise the 3 Pisces decans, and you get that sense of joy. The 9 of Cups belongs to Pisces Decan 2 and is known as the ‘wish card’. It describes your dreams coming true.
Pisces season can be quite an escapist one, too; it’s the period when you become enchanted by fairytales. Intuition is also heightened. In Aries season, we have to take action and make those visions become a reality, but right now, we can just dream! March is named after the god Mars, so we know more base energy is on its way. Pisces is so opposite, so ethereal, so misty… Once we hit March, though, those brazen yellow daffodils signal the sap is rising already.
March 1 was the original Roman new years day called Kalends. Romans renewed the sacred fire while armed priests (known as Salii) danced around. All in honour of Mars‘s birthday. The archetype of the spiritual warrior (the ‘armed priest’) fits very well with March-born Pisceans’ energy. On March 9, there was another religious feast day for the Salii. These ‘leaping priests of Mars’ were twelve youths dressed as warriors. “The Salii are sometimes credited with the opening and closing of the war cycle which would last from March to October.” ~ Wiki. That all sounds very Aries! Let’s get back to the watery zone.
Correspondences Of Pisces
The Water lily is the official flower for Pisces. Worldwide this flower is associated with spirituality. It represents rebirth and peace, but also simple pleasures.

Pisces Season self-care
Bathe in Epsom salts, swim in seawater, light blue candles, burn Sage or Sandalwood incense sticks, reduce noise, do a social media detox, drink tons of water, invest in good sea salt for your food (It should be grey), sleep more than usual, meditate, join a gong bath group, leap around like a priest of Mars, pull a tarot card every day, visit an old church, get some reflexology (Pisces rules the feet.) sort out your bunions and paint your toenails blue.
