The Sun spends approximately one month in each zodiac sign every calendar year. We call these apparent movements of the Sun “transits” – I use the phrase apparent movements because the Sun isn’t moving, of course; in reality we’re moving around it.
If you were born during the time when the Sun is in Pisces, then we say that you are ‘a Pisces’ – Pisces is your Sun sign, or your zodiac sign as some prefer to call it. However, there’s more to astrology than just your Sun sign, which is why astrological transits affect us all.
The subtle energy shifts of the Sun in Pisces have a message for all of us every year, whether we were born ‘a Pisces’ or not. The gentle astrological energies of the Sun in Pisces are mystical, sensitive and somewhat ethereal.
When the Sun transits Pisces, all of the things we normally associate with the zodiac sign Pisces start to come more into focus. Traditionally, we associate Pisces with sensitivity, spirituality, selflessness, compassion, creativity and imagination.
Every zodiac sign has its less than rosy qualities too, however, and in Pisces' case these include gullibility, deceit, overly emotional thinking and indecision. So, the Pisces Sun transit brings these issues to the fore too.
Sun in Pisces energy can be a deeply beautiful thing. This is romantic energy, beautiful, inspirational, tender and loving. It’s poetry, artistry, dreams and visions. It’s the ultimate sacrifice, and small daily sacrifices made in the name of love.
However, when the Sun transits Pisces, we must also be aware of con artists, those who prey on the weak and vulnerable, and those who seek to exploit other people’s compassion or good natures.
A high level of emotional sensitivity is par for the course when the Sun transits Pisces, and people in general are both more easily moved and more easily hurt. This energy can be confusing, and it can feel overwhelming – the one thing most of us need when the Sun transits Pisces is a safe port in a storm.
How Does the Sun in Pisces Transit Affect Each Zodiac Sign?
Each Sun sign will experience the Sun in Pisces transit in a slightly different way, but on a personal level, all signs will likely feel more sensitive and more vulnerable. Most will be making decisions more instinctively, and less rationally.
Aries Zodiac Sign (Aries Dates: March 20 – April 19) During Sun in Pisces
You are at your most spiritual and serene when the Sun transits Pisces, Aries – but you’re not always comfortable with the introspective vibe of this transit. Try to calm down and spend more time just ‘being’. If you can meditate, daydream or learn manifestation techniques, that would be an excellent use of this solar transit.
Taurus Zodiac Sign (Taurus Dates: April 20 – May 20) During Sun in Pisces
This solar transit puts you in touch with your most humanitarian instincts, Taurus, and more than anything you will want to help to heal the world. It’s an excellent time for charity endeavors, but try to give more than just money – giving your time or your skills will ultimately be worth more, both to you and to the charity concerned.
Gemini Zodiac Sign (Gemini Dates: May 21 – June 20) During Sun in Pisces
This transit marks a very reflective period in your career, Gemini, so don’t be surprised if you start to wonder whether what you do is really worthwhile or not. You may doubt your skills or abilities, but you should be able to take comfort in the fact that others value you and your work. Don’t make rash career decisions at this time.
Cancer Zodiac Sign (Cancer Dates: June 21 – July 21) During Sun in Pisces
This can be an excellent period for students, because – in contrast to most other signs – you find that this transit helps you to think more clearly and productively. The emphasis on the water element, which you too share, strengthens your intuition and your emotional connection with the wider world.
Leo Zodiac Sign (Leo Dates: July 22 – August 21) During Sun in Pisces
Guilt is a common theme of this solar transit for you, Leo, but you must try to avoid wallowing in self-pity or being too harsh on yourself. You may experience upsets in love at this time, especially if there is anything illicit going on – but it can also be a very healing time for forgiving someone who has hurt you.
Virgo Zodiac Sign (Virgo Dates: August 22 – September 21) During Sun in Pisces
When the Sun transits your love zone, Virgo, it’s no surprise that you may find many romantic opportunities during this period. If you’re single, it’s a great time for dating; if you’re already in love, it’s a wonderful time to deepen your soul connection together. Make a commitment that extends beyond this lifetime.
Libra Zodiac Sign (Libra Dates: September 22 – October 22) During Sun in Pisces
Your mental health needs good care during this transit, Libra, as you may be prone to worry or anxiety at this time. It’s a good time for therapy or counseling, and for bringing to light long lost or long-hidden truths from your past. Do plenty of things which make you smile, to make up for this possibly overly soulful vibe.
Scorpio Zodiac Sign (Scorpio Dates: October 23 – November 21) During Sun in Pisces
The Sun in Pisces is a very creative transit for you, Scorpio, and your imagination should be soaring. An excellent time for writers, poets, musicians and artists, it’s important now to allow your authentic talent to shine. This is quite a joyful and uplifting influence, so make the most of some magical moments you can create.
Sagittarius Zodiac Sign (Sagittarius Dates: November 22 – December 20) During Sun in Pisces
When the Sun transits your family zone, Sagittarius, it brings light, love and laughter to the family home and shines an optimistic light onto all things domestic. With this soulful Sun, however, there may be bittersweet moments for family – but at least any tears will come from a place of love and healing.
Capricorn Zodiac Sign (Capricorn Dates: December 21 – January 18) During Sun in Pisces
To stay on track during this solar transit, Capricorn, you’ll need to be highly organized, as these vibes tend to make you forgetful, distracted or just plain vague. Make lots of lists, schedule everything in detail and double-check anything important. Otherwise, it’s a lovely time for making new friends and renewing old friendships.
Aquarius Zodiac Sign (Aquarius Dates: January 19 – February 17) During Sun in Pisces
The Pisces Sun transits your money zone and blesses you with greater abundance, Aquarius – provided your income comes from a place of ethical and moral soundness. The spiritual elements of this vibe don’t work well with ill-gotten gains, so take time to ensure that your work and your income are for the highest good.
Pisces Zodiac Sign (Pisces Dates: February 18 – March 19) During Sun in Pisces
The Sun’s transit through your own sign is your personal new year period – and as such it’s a brilliant time for a fresh start. Switch up your look or your personal identity; find a new job, move to a new home, start a new relationship – whatever makes you happy. This transit is all about living your best life.
