The energy when Pisces season hits is mystical, dreamy, and emo as hell. Suddenly, we can’t stop listening to our high school “sad driving mix” and staying up all night to eat edibles and water paint. Even the most Type-A among us are more likely to fall in love with strangers or blow past a deadline. Between now and March 20th, our collective intuition is heightened, as are our romantic, sensual, and creative sides. Honestly, it’s pretty much a 22-day-long Lana Del Rey song.

Give yourself the space and tools you need to channel your plentiful feelings. Consider this your starter pack for making the most of Pisces season (while also buying yourself some cool presents).

Sleeping through alarms is 100% allowed this time of year (tell your boss). The languid energy is ripe for staying in bed and letting your next big project come to you in a dream. I like to encourage the process by spritzing my pillows with an intensely calming fragrance, like this earthy one.

The Enchanted Wilderness' Natural Amethyst Crystal Pendulum

Your gut intuition is stronger and more acute than ever right now. The problem is, most non-water signs aren’t used to letting their feelings make decisions, instead of their brains. Get accustomed to tapping into your own intuition with the use of a pendulum (a quick YouTube search will fill you in on the myriad uses). If you’re worried about looking silly pulling it out in public, remember that it’s still marginally cooler than our collective fidget spinner phase.
