Dive Into Pisces Season & The Best Crystals To Use This Month
Are you ready to dive in? 🌊
Pisces season arrived a few days ago, on the 18th. With it, a refreshing New Moon and some beautiful energy to start the season with.
Pisces is the first water sign you encounter in the year, and it calls you to look inward and confront your emotional wellness, especially if that is something you have been avoiding. I have some top-notch crystals to help with that, by the way. Keep reading to find out which ones.👇🏽
Pisces is also the last of the zodiac signs – so while we are in a technical new year, and in the first water season of that new year, we are also in the final stretches of the astrological year. This means you can be still be typing up bits that you may have left loose in the last few months, while also starting with new goals and routines in your life as you move forward. In true Pisces fashion, always holding contradicting truths!
Capricorn season was about your goals and ambitions, Aquarius season was about giving yourself the freedom to meet those goals, and now Pisces is here to align your inner self with the outer self you are putting out there.
Pisces season does have a bit of a warning coming with it though.
Be careful of seeing the world through rose-colored glasses.
Hear me out – seeing (and choosing to see) the best in people and in life is not a negative at all. What becomes a problem, though, is when you disregard anything that can be challenging or negative in favor of “seeing the positive”.
You can hold both. Life can be hard, and sad, and it can piss you off. It can also be beautiful, rewarding, and joy-inducing, all at the same time.
Pisceans are compassionate, empathetic, loyal, and intuitive. They can also be moody and tend to let emotions rule their lives. This means that in the next month or so, there is a tendency to let yourself sink deep into some of those emotions… do your best to feel them and then let them go. You do not want to get weighed down here, you want to witness and learn what the emotions you are feeling are telling you, and then move forward.
Pisces is a Neptune-ruled planet. Neptune is known for its compassionate nature and ability to forgive easily. It has been called "the dreamer" because it rules imagination, creativity and spirituality.
Neptune has a tendency to see things not as they are but as they could be--or even should be! This can lead to confusion or illusions if you allow yourself too much room for daydreaming without taking action. This is where the “rose colored glasses” tendency I mentioned earlier comes into play.

Celebrate Pisces Season With Water
It sounds cliche, but there is a reason that Pisces does so well with the watery world (and no, it’s not because it’s a fish!).
Zodiac signs are known to be at home when interacting with their assigned element. It is where they flourish, where they can connect with themselves and often with the earth. Put an Aries in a hot summer day outside, a Virgo in a forest, a Gemini in the mountains.. And a Pisces in some water.
The water, regardless of its source, is a place to relax and to be in your body. Water is such an easy medium to envelope your body with energy as well, as you can submerge yourself physically as well as energetically.
Here are some ways you can incorporate water in your rituals during Pisces season.
Water Rituals for Pisces Season
As we enter the season of Pisces, it's a great time to connect with the element of water and all its healing properties. Pisces is a water sign and is associated with emotions, intuition, and spiritual growth. Here are some water rituals you can incorporate into your daily routine during Pisces season to help you connect with your emotions and intuition.💧
1. Take a Salt Bath
One of the simplest water rituals is taking a salt bath. Salt is known for its purifying properties and can help you release negative energy. Add a cup of Epsom salt or Himalayan pink salt to your bathwater and soak for at least 20 minutes. As you soak, visualize any negativity leaving your body and being replaced with positive energy.
2. Meditate Near Water
Find a body of water near you, such as a lake, river, or ocean, and spend some time meditating near it. Listen to the sound of the water and let your thoughts flow freely. Water is a great conductor of energy and can help you connect with your intuition.
3. Create a Water Altar
Create a small altar with a bowl of water, seashells, and crystals that promote emotional healing, such as Amethyst or Aquamarine. Take a few moments each day to sit in front of your altar and reflect on your emotions.
4. Drink More Water
Drinking more water is a simple way to connect with the element of water and improve your overall health. Aim to drink at least eight glasses of water a day and infuse it with herbs or fruit to make it more enjoyable.
5. Cleanse Your Aura with Water
Fill a spray bottle with purified water and a few drops of essential oils, such as lavender or sage. Use this water to cleanse your aura and energy field. Close your eyes and spray the water around your body, visualizing any negative energy being released.
This is the best time to connect with the element of water and its healing properties. By incorporating these water rituals into your daily routine, you can improve your emotional well-being and connect with your intuition.
Pisces season is also a great time to connect with your inner self and practice self-care. You may be feeling emotional or sensitive during this time of year, so it's important that you make sure to take good care of yourself. Pisces is known for being compassionate towards others--but what about yourself?
This is the culmination of the astrological year, where all of the lessons and energies of the preceding signs are coming in together. This is the space and time where you can look back and see how far you have come – and dive deep into the version of yourself that you are becoming.
