Tides of Transformation: An Overview of Saturn Transiting Pisces

While Saturn is the planet about where life teaches you lessons (karmically related), where you can be hard on yourself, and where you can find growth / abundance after working on yourself - having it in the Zodiac Pisces is an interesting placement as Pisces isn’t too serious of a sign. Pisces is known for its artistic, dreamy, head in the clouds, intuitive, and empathic energy. 

On March 7th, 2023 Saturn began transiting Pisces again, where it will stay until May 24th, 2025. Saturn orbits a Zodiac Sign for about 2.5 years at a time. With this placement, there are certain themes that we can see more prominently at the time. 

Naturally, Saturn can have a big pull towards society. During a Saturn in Pisces transit, we can see themes such as spiritual or religious movements being prominent, an increase in social justice movements and humanitarian efforts, heightened creativity (musically, artistically, theatrically, and in literature), environmental awareness, healthcare problems, and refugee crises. 

Historically speaking, when looking at the strong effects of Saturn in Pisces, the spread of Buddhism became prominent during the same transit. The abolitionist movement in the 19th century that was aimed at ending slavery and promoting equality, and environmental advocacy. The Spanish Flu epidemic of 1918 that led to economic struggles. The Renaissance Period in Europe flourished with artistic and intellectual influences! This all took place in a Saturn in Pisces transit!

In Modern times, we’ve been able to see an increase in holistic approaches (spirituality, meditation, mindfulness, etc), an increase in empathy and a spotlight on humanitarian efforts, innovative developments artistically, the addressing of climate change, challenges in the healthcare system following the pandemic (including debates about health reform post pandemic), rise in conflicts amongst nations regarding control over land, media that focuses on spiritual themes, and a highlighted view on mental health.
