Welcome to Pisces season! If you’re a fan of this spiritual, deep-feeling sign — and especially if you aren’t — here’s a guide to swimming through the emotional waters with ease.
Get a box of tissues ready, and allow those cleansing tears to wash away the sediment of this past astrological year. Aries season is coming up next, and the baby fire sign of the zodiac ain’t got time for cryin’!
When is Pisces season?
Every year, Pisces season begins around February 18 and ends around March 20. During this time, the Sun is in the Pisces constellation. The Pisces new moon occurs on Wednesday, March 2, at 12:35 pm EST.
What does Pisces season mean?
Pisces is a water sign, which means it’s more intuitive and emotional than the cerebral focus of Aquarius, the air sign whose season just passed.
So, as the sun embarks on its journey through the deep waters of this spiritual sign, get ready to slow down, turn inward, and let love flourish.
You may have heard that water signs like Pisces are constant crybabies. As a Cancer Sun, I can assure you this is not true! Perhaps we shed more tears than most, but they can be brought on by joy, laughter, and love as well as sadness. We just love to feel it all.
Ruled by mystical Neptune and expansive Jupiter, Pisces is on an endless quest to seek out and ride intense emotional waves others wouldn’t dare consider — like a cosmic Garret McNamara.
What are Pisces’ strengths?
Pisces season 2022 comes in hot on the tail of Valentine’s Day, a Mars-Venus conjunction, and a Full Moon in Leo. Romance and relaxation take center stage for the next several weeks.
Like other water signs (i.e., Cancer and Scorpio), Pisces is empathetic and tuned in to the emotional undercurrents of our lives.
Pisces is the final sign in the astrological calendar. Because every sign builds on the knowledge of the one that comes before it, you can think of Pisces as the wise elder of the zodiac. Deeply spiritual and highly intuitive, Pisces often exudes a supernatural sense of psychic power.
What challenges may arise during Pisces season?
On the flip side, all this dreamy, head-in-the-clouds, go-with-the-flow energy can make Pisces season a tricky time for more administrative tasks like laying plans and implementing structure. Prepare for tectonic-level reality shifts and interstellar spiritual awakenings, but take nothing at face value.
Unlike Cancer and Scorpio, Pisces, the fish has no protective shell to hide behind. In addition to making Pisces even more empathetic, this leaves them vulnerable and prone to emotional overwhelm as they absorb other people’s energies like a sponge.
Balance these obstacles by setting up healthy boundaries and making time for self-care.
Who are some famous Pisces?
For anyone who grew up in the 90s (raises hand), Kurt Cobain may be the first Piscean celebrity that comes to mind. But there are loads of well-known fish in the sea. Pisces celebs include:
- John Wayne Gacy
- Nina Simone
- Elizabeth Taylor
- Drew Barrymore
- Karen Carpenter
- Albert Einstein
- Catherine O’Hara
- Erykah Badu
Chances are, you probably have a Pisces in your personal life. If so, you can marvel at the way they blossom into their sensitive selves over the next four weeks.
How can I celebrate Pisces season?
There are plenty of ways to get your fish on this season. Writing poetry is the first that comes to my mind. I recently took a class with Chelsie Diane and was blown away! Highly recommend.
Other great ways to celebrate Pisces season include:
- Play emo music on repeat
- Visit art galleries
- Book a tarot reading with me
- Watch that tear-jerker movie
- Soak in a luxurious bubble bath

You don’t have to go all-out. Honoring Pisces season can be as simple as buying a new candle — just make sure it’s beeswax, soy, or another nontoxic wax blend! I’m lookin’ out for your health!
There you have it! I hope you enjoyed this Pisces season guide. Happy swimming, dear fishies!
