Pisces season, the time of overthinking, overstressing, and mental breakdowns. But it can also be a very enlightening time if we can just figure out how to sit still and calmly think things through.

If you can manage to take the time to fully understand yourself and where your misguided feelings are coming from, you’ll elevate yourself emotionally and become stronger over the months to come. If anyone has the ability to heal themselves, it’s a pisces which makes this season perfect for overcoming those long-endured obstacles and letting go of anything which no longer serves.
