Today is February 20th, meaning the Sun has entered Pisces!

A Quick Note on Astrological Correspondences
It’s pretty easy to see the connections between the correspondences. Pisces is the last sign in the zodiac, occurs during February/March and is represented by the fish. Therefore, every correspondence has to do with water (aqua, Neptune, blood, pearl, etc) or being “last” (Crone Goddesses, feet, 7th chakra) or seasonal occurrences (early flowers, purple – February’s colour)
You can easily apply this to your own zodiac sign. Aries, for example is the first sign in the zodiac so it is symbolic of:
The Top: as in the first of everything, cardinal numbers, best, strongest, etc
The Head: as in headstrong, opinionated, thoughtful and wisdom as embodied by owls and other associated creatures.
It is also a fire sign, so you’ll find lots of red correspondences (root chakra which is also the 1st chakra, red stones, colour red)
That’s how correspondences work. SO, why don’t you take your own Sun Sign and think about:
a. the time of year and seasonal occurrences
b. the animal association or the element
c. your birthstone
See if you can make the connections yourself. It’s actually pretty easy and, once you get the hang of it, you’ll begin to see that there is a beautiful symbolic language that has existed throughout time and permeates every aspect of every culture.
Pretty amazing, right?
