Everything You Need to Know About Pisces

Did you know that Pisces are the last sign of the #zodiac and is often seen as the sign that has gone through all of life, has lived all the aspects of the cycle, thus incorporates all the knowledge from each of the signs before it. But its not all bubbles and bliss. The weight of worldly #wisdom can push Pisces to want to escape at any chance we get. Anyone know a Pisces with an addictive personality? The word “sedated” can be used to describe us at times. If I am not running around (Hustlin) like a chicken with my head cut off, you best believe I am trying to move as little as possible. As fishes we also go with the flow – so your chances of actually keeping plans with us is better off keeping it spur of the moment. Set plans that aren’t important, can stress us out. Because you never know what the morning will bring. Our mood when we set plans – can and will change the day of. Pisces is also a mutable sign. Meaning it is extremely easy for us to turn into a chameleon soul and blend into any place, with any people, with any situation. And look as if we effortlessly just got it like that. Because we are one of the more empathic and emotional signs – we can relate and sympathize with just about – ANYONE. One thing Pisces can do to help ground back to the Earth (since lord knows we live in the clouds) is to connect to and evolve through its opposite sign, Virgo – aka my sister Steph! Being a pisces has always fascinated me and I have always been so in love with the characteristic and personality traits of this sign. I take pride in being a Pisces – but I also dread some of our emotional irrationality. I also get really excited any time I meet a new pisces, because I immediately feel like I am not alone in the world. Us Pisceans can be such dreamers, that sometimes the reality of the world weighs heavy on our heart.  A Pisces will spend much time trying not to drown in our emotional pity parties. Trust me when I say we never mean too! Just as the tides have highs and lows – we do as well. Many time on a weekly basis! As a water sign, the moon placement heavily affects our attitude.

Pisces: The Two Fish

Welcome to our February sub box, Unicorn loves! We are entering into one of my favorite seasons of the zodiac, Pisces season! As a Pisces Moon I deeply resonate with the energetics of the two fish, the mysticism, ethereal, and mutable empathetic nature. Read on to learn more about the Pisces energies that will be impacting us all starting February 18th.

Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac (the zodiacal wheel of the year actually starts with Aries, the initiation of spring and the rebirth after the depths of winter). In this way, as we go through the cycles of the zodiac each year, Pisces is often seen as the sign that has gone through all of life, has lived all the aspects of the cycle, and thus incorporates all the knowledge from each of the signs before it. Pisces, therefore, carries a weight of worldly wisdom and knowledge that can gift the sign with great insight and also push it towards wanting to escape from the banalities of the everyday world.

Pisces is a water sign, the third sign in the evolution from Cancer to Scorpio. The impact of the watery nature is very present in Pisces, as it is an intensely emotional, empathetic, almost porous sign. Pisces is deeply connected to the mysteries of the world, all that lies beyond the veil, all that the intuition teaches us about the world beyond, the fantastical, the unknowable. It can be easy, therefore, for a Piscean person to get lost in those watery depths, in wanting to connect and merge with that which is on the other side and is separate from the everyday world we live in. Like Cancer and Scorpio, Pisces feels deeply; this is a sign that is profoundly connected to its feelings, to everything that the heart and the intuition has to tell it. Unlike Cancer and Scorpio, however, Pisces does not have a natural defense mechanism to help it when it is overwhelmed by feelings and sensations and emotions and projections and energy and the vibes; the Crab has its shell and its claws, the Scorpion has its stinger and its exoskeleton, while the fish’s shiny scales can reflect light but do little to deflect the emotional spear. This can make Pisces a bit more vulnerable to emotional wounding than the other two water signs. Pisces may also feel a bit more emotionally overwhelmed than other signs at events or by the emotions of the world, which can be a bit confusing for more brash signs (hi, Aries) or more disconnected signs (looking at you, Aquarius).

In addition, as a combination of a mutable sign and a water sign, Pisces is moved deeply by the desire to merge with the other, to enter so deeply into their understanding and consciousness that two can become one. This can show up in love relationships, and it can also show up in other relationships without life where a Pisces may find it hard to do anything that might hurt the other person, even if they are feeling a bit like a fish out of water or delicate. A Pisces might also seem a bit quick to change in temperament or have rapid emotional switches, both because of the mutable, quicksilver nature, and also because of how they might be impacted by what happens around them when their energetic fields are still porous.

This desire to become, to take on, also comes from the duality of the two Pisces fish as they swim. It is said that one fish always swims towards the heavens, bringing down the knowledge from above, while the other fish always swims underwater, bringing up the knowledge from the depths. This is also what gives people with strong Piscean energy in their charts their connection with the more mystical aspects of the world, their extra-attuned psychic senses, their closer connection to the magic of the world. They are constantly integrating and bringing together this information from the other realms, from the beyond. They want to know and enter into the mysteries. This is something that can sometimes drive Pisces to seek to escape from the day-to-day world. It may be in part because they feel overwhelmed, it may be in part because they want to expand beyond this dimension; Pisces can seek to lose itself in things that seem to bring the Divine closer or make the daily realities fade away.

One thing Pisces can do to help to ground back to the Earth is to connect to and evolve through its opposite sign, Virgo. This sign loves the daily practicalities and connecting with the real, the tangible, with precision that helps to separate the millet from the barley or the wheat from the chaff. Higher Pisces has learned how to embody this Virgo energy to help it connect deeply with all that is mystical while also remaining connected to life here, how to be discerning about what energy it lets in instead of letting itself drown in all the emotions that come around.

Neptune is the modern planetary ruler of Pisces (Jupiter was the ruler before Neptune was discovered). As the god of the seas, Neptune has an apt planetary connection with Pisces; in fact, Neptune is currently in the sign of Pisces in the sky and will be there until 2025, giving us all some extra energy around this desire to transcend reality and engage with the mysteries of life. If you have your chart (check out www.astro-charts.com !) Then you can also see both where Pisces is, what planets occupy that sign, and also where Neptune lies, along with the houses for both, to understand in more depth how you may engage with all that is mysterious, where you may be most likely to go with the flow, and how you connect with your intuition.

Throughout this season, enjoy taking some time to celebrate the liminal space that Pisces occupies! Winter is letting go of its grasp upon the land, spring is just around the corner with Aries season to come. This can be a particularly potent time to engage in dream-work, to connect with your intuitive side, to learn how to balance your emotional connectivity with some good boundaries, to revel in your creative, imaginative spirit and faith in what will come.

We hope this month brings you many opportunities, time alone, and a certain kind of love that only you can experience for yourself. Xx

This is a beautiful heart-activator that is perfect in this season of dreaminess, connection, love, empathy, and this desire to merge with the collective. This is an excellent stone for connecting with your dreams and bringing them into life. It helps bring joy, excitement, happiness, and harmony into all aspects of your life and your relationship with yourself and others.

Chrysocolla
A crystal for the heart that particularly encourages self-love and self-compassion via emotional healing and transmutation of guilt into empathy. When we may feel a bit overwhelmed by emotions and situations that are happening around us, chrysocolla can help us to tune in to the psychic wisdom of the universe and gain a greater state of peace.

Ocean Jasper
Gazing into the depths of this stone is gazing into the depths of the ocean – from the storm-tossed waves to the corals and everything in between. As you lose yourself in the swirls and movement and patterns of colors in each piece, you can easily recognize the interconnected nature of all life in this realm and in all others. This crystal encourages us to engage with our Piscean nature of integrating the Heavens and the depths.

Apatite
This crystal helps our minds to expand beyond this timeline to recognize the spirals of life that let us both integrate the past and connect with the future as well. We also can feel peaceful and calm when we meditate with a piece of apatite, as it helps to soothe our nervous systems, which the empathetic Piscean nature find very comforting. Deepens our psychic connections and our connection with our kundalini energy.
