Saturn will enter Pisces on March 7, 2023, to stay in that sign for almost three years which has me in massive preparation mode.
When the Lord of Karma is about to ask you for accountability in some area of your life, believe me, it is better to be prepared.
It’s not to be fidgety, but the stern teacher Saturn comes to meet with the dreamy Pisces. And this is not one of the happiest combinations in the cosmos.
Saturn in Aquarius (2020-2023) was quite comfortable since it is one of the two signs it rules (along with Capricorn). And despite that, the Lord of Limits did not stop doing its thing, controlling and restricting out-of-date processes that had to be updated.
Before seeing what will Saturn in Pisces bring for your rising sign, let’s review its astrological meaning.
What does the Saturn archetype represent?
Saturn has an awful press, just like Mercury retrograde. No wonder he is known as the great malefic of the zodiac.
The Saturn archetype is about time, authority, limits, and restrictions. This meaning is the part we like least about Saturn.
On the other hand, it also has to do with wisdom based on experience.
Saturn is the planet that seeks to build a solid foundation in the place it occupies in your birth chart. Some of the functions that Saturn plays in our lives are:
- Differentiate fantasy from reality.
- Set healthy boundaries
- Order the chaos and disarray
- Develop frustration tolerance
- Assume the responsibilities of our life
- Acquire experience and authority in our craft or some area of our life
We all must learn to integrate our Saturn as we gain experience and maturity.
How is the energy of Pisces?
Pisces represents the energy of the emotions that connect with the collective.
Pisces’s extreme sensitivity allows you to be in tune with the identity of humanity as a collective.
The energy of the last mutable sign is overwhelming because it reaches beyond our limits through spirituality and emotions.
Meanwhile, the ruling planet of Pisces is Neptune, which precisely has to do with the dissolution of limits and spiritual transcendence.
The values of Piscean energy in its high vibration are:
- Unconditional love
- Art and creativity
Instead, in its low vibration, the energy of Pisces can represent:
- Lack of limits
Pisces energy’s karmic challenge is empathizing with others without taking on their pain.
It is also imperative that those with an abundance of Pisces energy know how to set limits and put their feet on the ground. That is, to stand in reality without losing the empathy and compassion that characterizes them.
Alright, we have clarified what Saturn and Pisces represent in their expression.
How to understand the transit of Saturn in Pisces 2023-2026
With Saturn in Pisces, the question is, what fantasies in your life will you be able to make come true? Or what realities will dissolve?
We have already established that Saturn and Pisces are somehow antagonistic.
The best metaphor to illustrate this antagonism is a house (Saturn) built on the sea (Pisces).
Where Saturn is, effort and commitment will always be required.
The planet of limits in this mutable sign will allow you to put up a protective barrier so that the energy of the collective does not affect you too much.
Even so, Saturn will ask you to have compassion and empathy towards your environment, keeping control of your emotions. After all, Saturn will be in Neptune’s house and have to answer him.
Another crucial thing with this transit is to try not to fall into the savior-victim dynamic.
As I already mentioned, the transit of Saturn in Pisces will start on March 7, 2023, and will last until February 2026.
During this time, Saturn will have some retrograde periods.
First retrograde transit in the zero degrees of Pisces: June 17 to November 13, 2023.
Second retrograde transit in the 12th degree of Pisces: June 29 to November 14, 2024.
When Saturn travels through these degrees, please pay attention to what happens as it will go through them again in retrograde, activating those issues.
Retrogradations of planets are always moments when a previous situation is raised again.
Now let’s see how this transit will affect you according to your rising sign and the house where it manifests in your birth chart.
Aries rising – 12th House
