Following the annual time of Aquarius, the sign of Pisces closes the zodiacal circle and thus signifies the end of a cycle and its final synthesis. Pisces means experiencing life through a special kind of emotional participation: a boundless fusion with the inner states of others. Therefore, those of us powerfully imprinted with the Piscean way of perceiving become very sensitive to the diffuse atmospheres created between the subtle, infinite emanations of all beings.
An opened connection with the universal flow of the collective unconscious makes it possible for the Piscean nature to translate and refine emotions that others cannot point out or recognize. Pisces do that through an abstract manner of looking at life, using imagination and a kind of artistic flair. That is why we cannot fully grasp the inner life of this human type without understanding what meditation is, for Pisces – no matter how evolved one nativity might be or not – is naturally using a contemplative and detached attitude in order to translate into their personal metaphor the mixture of emotions, impressions, dreams, ideals that they pick up from everywhere they go.
Empathy and sensitiveness easily emerge out of this inner openness or availability. Pisces feels both the suffering and the most refined beauties of human soul without discrimination. Another natural inclination of this type is being attracted to mysticism and spirituality in an attempt to reunite itself with the divine Source of life. Pisces thus represents the test of transcending the limits of our human nature and going further than the ego allows us.
One of their main challenges is dealing with their predilection to the victim-savior pattern. Pisces need to learn not to sacrifice themselves uselessly and let people confront their own problems.
We might also point out a certain transparency and haziness of this multifaceted personality. Although all Pisceans are extremely sensitive, there are also some of them of a more mental and realistic disposition. Those are the ones capable of absorbing a huge volume of information and usually seem to be a living encyclopedia. For example, Albert Einstein was a Piscean.
As any other zodiacal sign, Pisces is also prone to some specific faults. Among these, the most problematic are: lack of practical sense, wasting their lives in a continuous day-dreaming, lack of discrimination, solidity and personal structure; developing all sorts of addictions and avoiding reality; inner chaos, victimization.
Keeping Pisces in balance means integrating the other three archetypes of the mutable cross:
- Gemini: lucidity; sharpness; emotional detachment;
- Virgo: disciplined attention to details; practicality;
- Sagittarius: optimism, faith in adventurous initiatives.
So I end my article with an appropriate wish: may your highest dreams become fully achievable!
