The Sun's entry into Pisces, the last sign of the zodiac (10:18 p.m. PST on Feb. 18 / 1:18 a.m. EST on Feb. 19), signifies the beginning of the end. It's time to complete what you started last spring, so you can start a new cycle at the Spring Equinox next month. This is a time to dream, rest, heal and surrender to something greater than your individual self.
Pisces is symbolized by two fish swimming in opposite directions. Spirit and matter, bliss and suffering, paradise and prison are some of the co-existing paradoxes inherent in this sign. The boundary between waking life and the world of dreams dissolves, and you confront the illusory nature of reality. Find out where you're being called to dissolve, let go, complete a cycle and surrender by looking up your zodiac sign below.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You're ending a personal cycle as your birthday year comes to a close and the Sun slips into your 12th House of the Unconscious. This is a time for being invisible and retreating into your inner world. Your intuition will lead you toward awareness of your hidden tendencies.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
The Sun in your 11th House of Groups and Friends signals a time for expanding into a greater sense of connection with your community. By spending time with friends and participating in groups, you can renew your faith and your vision for the future.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
The dreamy Pisces Sun in your 10th House of Career inspires the longing to bring your work in a new direction, perhaps with a more healing, spiritual or creative focus.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
With the Sun in your 9th House of Travel, this is an expansive time for you. You are ready to encounter people, places and ideas that are outside the realm of your normal reality.
