The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.
~ Albert Einstein, Pisces Sun and Midheaven
The Sun moves into the sign of Pisces today!
Sun Sign of Pisces
Pisces is ruled by the fish, but according to astrologer Jon Cainer, a more accurate symbol might be the dolphin. “These graceful, intelligent creatures live in harmony with each other and their environment. To see a dolphin at play is to see Creation at its most majestic and the essence of true Piscean magic at work.
“Pisceans, so the story goes, are wistful, whimsical, misty-eyed dreamers who live in a cloud cuckoo land. It is said that they simply do not possess the power of rational thought because they are creatures entirely of instinct.”
But, he insists, what most people would consider escapism is, for a Pisces, an act of courage and even survival. “It sometimes seems that everyone who needs a shoulder to cry on or someone to confide in selects one of these gentle, approachable people.
“Unfortunately,” he continues, “Pisceans tend to absorb emotional energy rather like a sponge and eventually, it seeps out in the form of nervous energy and a desire to retreat into the world of imagination. This is why Pisceans are often prone to overindulge their senses in an attempt to escape from their own sensitivity. They love to fantasize. Their ruling planet is Neptune.”
Pisceans are generous, and never egotistical in their personal relationships. They are known for giving more than they ask from their friends. Arguably, they are the most romantic zodiac sign, and are gentle, sensitive lovers. Many are psychically gifted, and their versatility, intelligence and remarkable creativity are a winning combination for stardom in literature, music and art.
However, they can be moody and withdrawn at times, and romantic partnerships that are not also deeply spiritual are rarely satisfying for Pisces. When Pisces feels rejected or gets the blues, they can go seriously downhill. Because of this, and because they tend towards an addictive, compulsive nature, Pisces needs to be especially wary of using drugs or alcohol for escape or distraction.
Piscean Blessings for Everyone
During this time when the Sun is in the sign of Pisces, we are all experiencing some of the most ethereal energy of the year. We may be especially attuned to our compassionate, empathic gifts during this time. It is an ideal opportunity to cultivate our intuitive skills, explore our artistic side, and seek mystical wisdom.
This is the last month of the astrological year, and so it is also a time for us to conclude the lessons and work we have been doing since last Spring. Tapping into the Piscean dream-time energy, you might wish to trance journey, to access the hidden worlds of imagination and magic, as you prepare for the upsurge of Aries energy at Equinox.
May the days of Pisces be blessed with peace and compassion for all.
