7 Pisces Season Rituals That Unlock Your Inner Magic 

Try our Pisces season rituals to wave a wand during this mystical zodiac season.

Do you believe in magic? The dreamy vibes of Pisces season can make the most hardened cynic want to immediately enroll in a semester at Hogwarts Academy. Ruled by hazy Neptune, Pisces is a spell caster. (Cue Pisces Rihanna reminding us that we’re beautiful “like diamonds in the sky.”)

Pisces Season Rituals To Try

1. Question your assumptions—did they really mean that?

Take nothing at face value during this four-week cycle! Although the reality shifts can be mind-bending, don’t just rely on your five senses. Give credence to your intuition, spiritual experiences and serendipities. Some will be so striking they seem to arrive as a message from another dimension.

Since you probably can’t prove these things on paper, don’t waste time arguing with the self-proclaimed cynic in your family. But if something resonates for you intuitively, it’s worth exploring. Nowadays, it’s not uncommon to read with a book that the author channeled from a thousand-year-old deity or to consult your oracle deck before making a major life move. Go ahead and enjoy the messages of Abraham that flow through Esther Hicks or let that Wheel of Fortune tarot card confirm your cross-country move. 

That said, it’s a good idea to fact-check any assumptions, especially if money or wellness prescriptions are involved! It’s one thing to be skeptical (someone who considers all possibilities with one eyebrow raised) and quite another to be gullible—the twin pitfall of Pisces season.

2. Unblock your psychic channels

Pisces season invites you to use a different sort of vision than pure sight. The third eye chakra, called the ajna, is located at the forehead between the eyebrows and is considered to be the gateway to your intuition and your sixth sense. But like all chakras, the ajna portal can become blocked. This may cause you to second-guess yourself and make ego-based decisions that can lead to unfulfilling results. You can help reopen your third eye for this Pisces season ritual by working with an energy healer or through your own meditation practice. Yoga poses such as forward folds, help to release tension in the shoulders and flush the pineal gland—restoring the flow of energy into the third eye. 

3. Never forget that water is life

Neptune, the mythical god of the seas, is the ruling planet of the zodiac’s Fish. During Pisces season, the health of our oceans and water supplies becomes an ever-more crucial focus. It can be hard to digest some of the scary facts about melting polar ice caps and rising sea levels. If you’ve been avoiding these “inconvenient truths,” NASA’s climate website has extensive teaching tools that are presented more factually than emotionally.

While no one can single handedly save the planet, for your Pisces season ritual, you can add to the collective efforts to protect our aquatic resources. As much as possible, eliminate the use of plastics, which often wind up dumped in the ocean (yes, even if you tossed that bottle into your recycling bin) to be ingested by fish, in turn, polluting the food chain. Carry a refillable bottle for your H2O. You can turn this into a decadent ritual by investing in a beautiful glass bottle, maybe one that has a crystal integrated into its design.

4. Channel your inner Erykah Badu, Nina Simone, Michaelangelo…

Give the muse a seat at your table. While you’re at it, invite this spirit into the recording studio and your dreams! Pisces season is like an extended vision quest. The veil is thin during these four weeks, making it easier to pick up “messages” from the ether. For this Pisces season ritual, sit down with a notebook and see what flows out of your subconscious. Known for its poetic prowess, this solar cycle could turn you into a regular Ntozake Shange, or Anais Nin who was born under this star sign. Keep a journal on the nightstand, as Pisces season can enrich your sleep and deliver divinely inspired messages through your dreams.

Do you keep hitting the same creative block? Check out Julia Cameron’s The Artists Way, a legendary guidebook for embracing your creative self that we often recommend. One of the most game-changing exercises is the practice of writing “Morning Pages.” This entails taking pen to paper first thing in the morning to free-write three pages of unfiltered thoughts. You’ll be amazed at how therapeutic this practice can be—and how many hidden gems get unmoored from the recesses of your mind in the process.

Expect this to be a therapeutic process, too! Pisces is symbolized by two fish swimming in opposite directions, making Pisces season a time to rise into higher planes AND go rolling in the deep. Don’t judge your work or try to achieve a masterpiece. Just make art for art’s sake…or healing’s sake!

5. Do a “boundaries inventory”

During “Neptune season,” as we also like to call these four weeks, the energy of the hazy planet helps us go with the flow But that can be a slippery slope in some cases, making people prone to excess. Bring awareness to how much you’re drinking and eating or how often you sacrifice sleep because you’re so consumed with a project (or you don’t want to leave the party). Hey, we all love to escape reality from time to time, but bear in mind that addiction falls under the domain of Pisces. “Just this once,” can be famous last words that undo months of hard work or, in extreme cases, create the kinds of problems no one wants to have. 

Steer clear of triggering people and situations. In The Empath’s Survival Guide, author Judith Orloff outlines the many ways highly sensitive people can become self-destructive in order to numb the intensity of the signals they pick up. Reach for artist’s tools when the urge to self-soothe strikes. Adult coloring books have risen to popularity as a cathartic form of self-expression—or maybe just a way to keep our hands busy. We’re fans of the iPad Pro and Apple Pencil’s simulated artist-style pens and brushes and have incorporated them into our note-taking!

6. Find forgiveness, or at least release the grudge

As the twelfth sign of the zodiac, Pisces governs the things we need to release—if only to lighten our own psychic loads. Have you been hauling around a grudge or tale of woe like an albatross? The Pisces Sun illuminates places where you’ve fallen into a victim mentality and need to change your tune. That’s not to invalidate legitimate trauma. The question is, can you reframe these experiences as soul lessons and a source of inner strength? Turn to healing circles, therapists, shamans and coaches—the experts who can help you view things through a more empowering lens. Your “wounds” may evolve into healing gifts, allowing you to one day support someone going through a similar struggle.

Is it time to extend the olive branch? Forgiveness is a gift that you can give yourself during Pisces season, along with heavy doses of compassion. That doesn’t mean you have to invite every offending party back into your life or soften boundaries that need to be kept firmly in place. But it does mean accepting people (and situations) for all that they are and all that they are not—and finding some divine serenity therein.

7. Let yourself daydream, too! (What IS that fantasy telling you…?)

Despite all the intensity of Pisces season, it’s also one of the most romantic and glamorous times of the year. Get ready for an early round of spring fever! Rose-colored glasses and hearts worn on sleeves are always in fashion during Pisces season.

Caveat: Piscean energy can be so lost at sea that you can sometimes forget that you are bound by the principles of the Earth plane. Periodic reality checks would be a wise idea—and at least three advisors to consult before unleashing any wilder schemes. But don’t be so hard-nosed that you fail to enjoy the imaginative vibes that Pisces season brings!
