Astrology enthusiasts, listen up! A big shift is coming, and it's all thanks to Saturn. On March 7th, Saturn will move into Pisces, where it'll stay until February 13th, 2026. This is a big deal because Saturn moves slowly and takes almost three years to make its way through a sign. Saturn is known as the Planet of Karma, Restriction, and Responsibility. It loves structure and boundaries. However, Pisces is more about dreaming and creativity. So what happens when these two opposing energies collide? We're about to find out!

According to astrologer Stephanie Campos, since 2017, Saturn has been moving through Capricorn and Aquarius. This made our Saturn lessons harsher and more intense during this transit because it's moving through a sign it's comfortable in. Although Saturn loves structure, Pisces is more about dreaming and creativity. This astrological happening marks a time when fantasy will intertwine with our reality. According to Lisa Stardust, an astrologer and author of The Love Deck, "It's a time in which we can use our artistry in a clever way that defines the changes occurring at the world at large."

"Saturn likes structure, boundaries, and a serious attitude," explains Narayana Montúfar, senior astrologer for and author of Moon Signs: Unlock Your Inner Luminary Power. "Pisces is oceanic, meaning it dislikes boundaries, desires more mobility, and tends to constantly change its mind." Although these two extremes will be at odds with one another for the next three years, there is a positive side: "Saturn's powers will be somewhat debilitated." Astrologer Iva Naskova notes that when strict Saturn moves into Pisces, it means that we all get to take off our rose-tinted glasses and take a reality check. She also points out that since Saturn rules, government rules and regulations globally are expected to change.

This shift will also usher in a new era of Saturn returns which occurs every 27-ish to 29 years when Saturn returns to the place it was when you were born. Those who had Saturn in Aquarius will be ending theirs, while those with their Saturn in Pisces will be just beginning this introspective period. So astrology fans, get ready for some change ahead!
