Falling at the end of winter, Pisces season can seem a bit bleak and unspiring. But watery Pisces is mystical and romantic, and it's corresponding foods can be truly awesome.
As Pisces season closes out the astrological year, many of us are seeing still seeing harsh weather and freezing temperatures. Our ancestors would have seen food stores running low, and some cultures, including the Baha'i faith, are fasting at this time of year.
But Pisces energy is harmonious and emotional, associated with water, and the sea. This energy is all about romance, art, and beauty. It's a great time to keep warm and get creative.
Pisces Season Foods
Naturally, for Pisces season, you might want to celebrate all the delicious foods of the sea. Unfortunately, I'm not much of a fish and seafood person. In fact, we only eat fish maybe a few times a year, and other than putting some fish fingers in the oven, I never cook it. Fish that are in season right now include clams, halibut, lobster, and salmon.
But there are a few other foods corresponded with Pisces as well, and I truly enjoy eating them.
Fig trees are corresponded with the sign of Pisces. The fruit brings the energy of luck, abundance, seduction, and fertility. Let's enjoy it in the form of jam and cheese.

What's in season for Pisces
We may think we don't have many options here since it's the dead of winter, but Pisces season offers us some imported tropical fruits along with some reliable staples to see us through the winter.
Tropical pineapple is a fruit of hospitality and welcome. I'd feel welcome if you made me a Gammon Steak with Pineapple Salsa.
Pomegranates are mythical and beautiful connecting us to our inner wisdom and symbolizing death and rebirth. I apparently prefer to experience pomegranate in a cocktail.
Passion fruits definitely seem like something that belong in a witch's kitchen. And while things may be pretty barren here in Scotland, we are able to get fresh tropical fruits like this, so take advantage of them while you can.
Bananas are keeping us going through the winter thanks to modern shipping. They can bring resilience through change along with wealth, luck, and spirituality.
If we were hunting game, turkey would be in season right now. I'm glad I get mine from the store, and I'm happy to eat it all winter long.
