From March 7th, 2023 til February 15th, 2026, with some periods of retrograde, Saturn will be in Pisces. The last time Saturn was in Pisces was from 1993 to 1996, this means that those born during that time may be experiencing their first Saturn return this time around.
Saturn, the ringed planet, is known for its association with discipline, structure, and responsibility, while Pisces is a water sign known for its intuitive, empathetic, and dreamy nature. When Saturn moves into Pisces, it creates a unique energy that can impact our lives in various ways. In this post, we will delve deeper into what this transit means, how it may manifest, and what we can do to make the most of this celestial event.
Saturn has been in its element!
Saturn’s journey through Capricorn and Aquarius over the past 6 years has been a period of intense focus on structure, discipline, and order. In Capricorn, Saturn was able to fully express its nature to build strong foundations and create stability, while in Aquarius, Saturn’s focus was on revolutionizing existing structures and systems to better serve the collective.
During this time, we have experienced lockdowns, social distancing guidelines, and other forms of restriction on our daily lives. These measures have forced us to adapt to new ways of living and working, highlighting the need for structure and discipline in our personal lives and the importance of adhering to rules and regulations for the greater good.
But did we truly thrive during this period? Or is it time for some balancing?
What changes can Pisces bring?
Pisces, in contrast to the previous signs that Saturn has traversed, is a water sign known for its fluidity and dissolution. In Pisces, boundaries can become blurred, and the structures we have built up to protect and control, both socially and personally may start to erode.
The solid foundations and structures that we have built up during Saturn’s time in Capricorn and Aquarius may falter in Pisces, as we are called upon to adapt to a more intuitive and fluid approach to life. This period may be marked by a need to let go of the rigid thinking and strict limitations that we have imposed on ourselves in the past and embrace a more compassionate and flexible way of being. This is again true for our personal lives, but also our greater, social and political existence as well.
During Saturn’s transit through Pisces, we may be challenged to re-evaluate our personal and social boundaries and consider which structures need to be reimagined. This period may provide an opportunity for personal growth and transformation as we let go of rigid thinking and embrace a more intuitive and compassionate approach to life.
The dissolution of boundaries and structures that may occur during this time may be unsettling, but it can also be a powerful catalyst for positive change. By shedding outdated beliefs and patterns of behavior, we can make space for new perspectives and experiences to emerge.
So yes, it’s important to let go of boundaries that do not serve us anymore, but it is also important to have boundaries that continue to protect and support us. In Pisces, we have to pay extra attention so that our personal boundaries are not stepped over by others.
Pisces and the victim mentality
Many groups in our society can experience a sense of oppression and inequality, and in the years ahead, as Pluto also moves into Aquarius, we may see an increase in activism and movements for human rights, equality, and environmental justice. This period may bring a heightened need for accountability, with calls for those in positions of power to take responsibility for their actions.
However, the influence of Pisces can also create a tendency to externalize blame and play the role of the victim. While seeking accountability from external sources is important, it is equally essential to look within oneself and take responsibility for one’s actions and behavior.
As we navigate this period of social, political, and personal change, it is crucial to approach issues with empathy and a willingness to understand different perspectives. By cultivating a sense of personal responsibility and accountability, we can work towards creating a more just and equitable society for all.
A shift in consciousness
Pisces brings an increased need and awareness for spiritual connection, prompting a growing openness to alternative views, solutions, and cures. However, it’s important to not completely let go of our objective judgment (Saturn) while exploring new ideas and perspectives. We don’t want to fall victim to something that will be ultimately a wrong influence on us. We have to find the right balance between the energies of Pisces and Saturn.
This period may also witness a rise in creative and spiritual entrepreneurship, as people become more connected to their intuitive and imaginative abilities. If you feel like this is your call too, this period might be great for you to experiment. Of course, this energy may manifest very differently in certain people. Those who are vibrating at a lower level of consciousness might find that their Piscean need for dissociation may come through substances like alcohol or drugs.
