Pisces is a creative sign that lives in a certain “separation” from reality. The moon in Pisces favors all endeavors related to the flight of imagination, fantasy, investigation, disclosure of mysteries and secrets. In this period it is good to meditate, take time to self-analysis. In addition, any activities related to water will be safely held.
Pisces is a fertile zodiac sign, so it is the best time to plant fruit crops, or any other plants that you want. In addition, astrologers claim that the moon in Pisces helps couples to conceive a girl.
Do NOT have surgical procedures performed on the feet at this time.

Pisces Full Moon Divination
You will need:
- 15-30 minutes of uninterrupted time
- a journal
- Clear sight of the moon
If the night sky is clear enough to see the glow of the Full Moon take a moment to relax your mind and body. This practice can be done in or outdoors (if the weather permits it).
Once you are in a comfortable position (standing or seated), begin a rhythmic breathing sequence by inhaling deeply through the nose, holding the breath for three seconds and slowly exhaling from the mouth. As you inhale, visualize cleansing golden/white light vibrations entering your body through your nose, and traveling down your trachea and filling your lungs, chest cavity and heart center with warm, glowing sensations.
As you exhale, visualize discordant vibrations, tension, confusion, and stress leaving your body through your mouth in dark, cloudy swirls of energy. Bless yourself, and your discordant vibrations in the name of Spirit or any deity you deem fitting when you seek comfort, protection, and solace. Cast these discordant vibrations unto the ether to find peaceful resolution.
Gaze up at the moon and soften your focus relax your eyes and body.
Think of the question you’re seeking answers to (limit to 1 at a time) the intention is to hold that question in your mind.
Continue gazing at the full moon and allow the answers/ inspiration to come to you. this can be an image, word, symbol.
Scrying With The Moon
If you’d like to enhance this ritual, you might like to try Scrying with the moon by incorporating a clear glass (not plastic), or silver bowl so that it captures the light of the full moon. You will then surround the bowl with four white candles that will create a magic circle. soften your gaze into the water and pay close attention to both the flames and the water.
This is an intermediate – advanced practice. However, Scrying also comes very naturally for some people. Each of our abilities will vary. Some people might see with their eyes, or “second sight” while others may see nothing, and hear or feel the answers to their question. Trust your inner sense and guidance in deciphering the visions presented to you during this practice. Yes, a practice. You will not always have success the first time.
The benefit to this method is that the water in the dish used for divination will also be charged by the Full Moon to be bottled and used for spells, rituals, and products at a later time.
Scrying can be an auto-deepening trance process that progresses in stages using tools such as a crystal ball, water, mirrors or other reflective mediums. Initially, the medium serves as a focus for the attention, removing unwanted thoughts from the mind in the same way as a mantra. Once this is achieved, the scryer begins a free association with the perceived images suggested, for instance in a crystal ball, by the tiny inclusions, web-like faults and/or the cloudy glow within the ball under low light (i.e. candlelight).
“The technique of deliberately looking for and declaring these initial images aloud, however trivial or irrelevant they may seem to the conscious mind, is done with the intent of deepening the trance state, wherein the scryer hears their own disassociated voice affirming what is seen within the concentrated state in a kind of feedback loop. This process culminates in the achievement of a final and desired end stage in which visual images and dramatic stories seem to be projected within the mind’s eye of the scryer, like an inner movie. This overall process reputedly allows the scryer to “see” relevant events or images within the chosen medium.” – Oracles of Divination
When you feel ready to return to the reality of your meditation room or outdoor area, simply count backwards from ten to one. At the count of one, open your eyes and breathe deeply several times.
Remain seated or standing, and allow yourself the time required to reintegrate into the third dimension of reality. Enjoy the moments and the vibrations that fill you as you reflect upon your meditation experience. This is an excellent time to begin writing down what images, symbols, or information was shared to you during your experience.
Pisces is the twelfth sign of the zodiac. The sun enters Pisces at slightly different times each year, usually around Feb 21, sometimes the day before or the day after.

In artistic representations, Saga bears a long Viking braid, an emblem of womanhood and honor.

Later, her name was applied to the sacred heroic texts of the Scandinavian people.

As the twelfth and last sign of the zodiac, Pisces contains within itself a little experience of all the signs. This gives Pisces Suns the ability to identify with people from all walks of life—from all backgrounds—in some way. These individuals are not only changeable and adaptable, they have open minds and tremendous understanding. But Pisces itself is often misunderstood. Pisces Suns may spend a good portion of their lives yearning for understanding, and the other part in a state of divine discontent. Suffering is sometimes glamorized in the Piscean world.
Sun in Pisces people are frequently pegged as wishy-washy, but this is all a matter of opinion. What you will find behind a vaguely directionless, spacey manner is a deep person with real dreams. Their dreams are more than getting that picket fence or making it up the corporate ladder. Pisces are tuned in to a higher purpose and their dreams transcend the individual. A deep love for humanity, and compassion that knows no bounds is found with this placement of the Sun.
Pisceans are not known to be cutthroat business types, nor are they given to throwing themselves out into the world in an aggressive manner. But make no mistake about it, Pisces can be extraordinarily successful when given the chance to express themselves. The arts, marketing, music, teaching, drama, healing arts…these are all fields in which Pisces can find expression. Their imagination, attunement to humanity, and remarkable intuition endow them with enviable gifts of insight and creativity.
Pisces is a sensitive sign—both sensitive to criticism and sensitive to others’ feelings. Easily touched by human suffering, at least in theory, Pisces wouldn’t hurt a fly. They believe in people, are deeply hurt by compassionless human behavior, and have a hard time saying no. Harsh realities are avoided either through escapist behavior or self-delusion; but every now and again reality does raise its ugly head, and hits Pisces over the head. This is a sad time indeed. Pisces retreats into their own world, self-pitying and giving pep talks to themselves (“I will never trust again!”). Rest assured, though, that these periods are rather short-lived and even useful.
Pisces seems to derive energy from their (generally short) bouts of self-pity. They come back stronger, with a spring in their step, ready to face the world again, and just as, if not more, compassionate and trusting as they were before. Some might even wonder if Pisces finds pleasure in suffering. Sometimes this is the case, but most of the time, Pisces pulls a lot of creative energy from sadness. Pisces is the poet or artist with angst, although this trait is often more apparent with Moon in Pisces.
Some find Pisces’ tendency to be late for appointments, spaced out behavior, and absent-mindedness amount to irresponsibility. Pisces would be shocked to know this, however. Who me? Pisces wonders. Irresponsible? Pisces Suns absolutely care—their love knows no bounds—but their retreats from ordinary life (whether they are as simple as daydreams or actual departures) that they so seem to need every now and again are not always understandable to no-nonsense signs, such as Virgo or Aries.
Many Pisces seem almost allergic to things like shopping lists, maps, directions, and instructions, and for some brave souls, even watches — they prefer to feel their way through life than to follow some plan.
We find plenty of artists, poets, and musicians with Sun (and other personal planets) in Pisces. Piscean themes are woven throughout the songs of Billy Corgan of the Smashing Pumpkins and Kurt Cobain of Nirvana, for example.
