Saturn in Pisces Transit Effects 2023 to 2026

Saturn enters the sign of Pisces on March 8, 2023 and it ends its 3 year transit cycle until February 14, 2026. As the planet of time and karma, this might just become a very profound and important breakthrough that creates major shifts, changes and karmic lessons for each of us on a personal and collective level - - simply because these two alignments are in total opposite to each other.

Saturn rules time, karma, rules, structure, tradition, stability and discipline. Pisces on the other hand is all about mysticism, dreams, fantasy, illusions, pleasure seeking, compassion, idealism, imagination and all things that are unseen.

It gives two different energies that needs to correlate and join in together as it promotes a specific effect or outcome. When Saturn was in the sign of Aquarius, everything was all about changes, innovation, activism, technological and medical advancements. Saturn is dignified and comfortable in Aquarius, it was not a heavy energy, but we couldn't say it was an easy ride as well. There has been issues of social distancing, country distancing and the Russia-Ukrainian War even occurred - - just some of the issues that have come up the past few years when Saturn was in Aquarius. Now that is enters the sign of Pisces, there will be drastic effects that might come that allows us to notice things that we usually wouldn't notice at all. It also gives an element of focus to "self-undoing" as it does highlights the energy of the 12th House as well, so karma does play a huge role to this energy. We should remind ourselves that there is always a "consequence" to our past action, even more so with Saturn in the sign of Pisces.

Saturn is the teacher that gives us wisdom, knowledge and help us learn from experience, so we gain mastery over things and allow us to overcome our vices and adversities that blocks our path in life. It may be difficult, yes, and this is the reason why most people fear Saturn. However, people tend to forget that Saturn also gives us abundance and bountiful rewards when we put in the hard work - - it gives us credits where credits is due.

The fact that Saturn and Pisces are so much opposite from one another, we can expect things to be felt much more. Pisces wants to feel good and do pleasurable things, while Saturn wants you to be responsible and to discipline yourself. Pisces has an indecisive quality to it, sometimes even shady and confusing, but Saturn calls for structure and certainty. With Saturn in Pisces, we simply cannot idealize things and dream alone and wake up the next day like it's a new day, it wants you to fix what must be fixed - - it will want you to take action and the necessary step to make a change and have some maturity in your life. Wherever Pisces is for you in your natal chart, this is the area of focus where Saturn will put some structure and change for you in the next couple of years.

Now, how Saturn in Pisces will play out for you will be different for everyone... again, Saturn can be a punisher, too. When you do not act with moral values, when you do things in ways that promote ill-intent to others... Saturn will act in a way that teaches you harsh lessons, too. This is especially true with Saturn in Pisces, because Pisces is the sign that is much more prone to give in to their vices, feelings and desires, which most of the time is not always good for us or for anyone for that matter.

Pisces is romantic and compassionate, but also hides the truth, selfish, negative and shady. Everything has a good and bad quality and while Saturn tests us and gives us a lot of limitations - - it always has a reason and purpose. Ultimately, it gives us a reality check and without the challenges it gives us, we will never strive for maturity to change things for the better. Instead of rejecting Saturn, I would say, it is best to embrace the energy of Saturn and work our way to be the better versions of ourselves.

Manifestations of What Saturn in Pisces Might Bring to Us:

- Huge focus and changes in terms of Religious Beliefs and Spirituality
