The Sun is now in Pisces, the sign associated with two fish swimming in what appears to be opposite directions, forming a circular shape and some existence of a connection to each other. One fish represents matter and one fish represents spirit. Pisces is one of the mutable signs so it can vacillate between the two realms of Earth and the Heavens. Protected by a thin membrane of skin that has evolved into scales, they can be very sensitive to the world around them. Fish utilize vibrations and detect currents through their sensitivity and some can even create and detect electrical currents. When managing the connection to the “seen and unseen”, the imagination can be a tool to assist in being able to maintain the idyllic, dreamy vision alongside the more harsh realities of material factual reality. Maintaining an open channel to the infinite and the absolute requires incredible receptivity and this can also be a place of overwhelm. As this is the case, fish are known to require solace and turn to hiding when they don’t feel secure or need to adjust to the stimulus. With so many Planets currently in Pisces, we may feel a sense of greater sensitivity and receptivity to our world. From this sensitivity we find compassion as to walk in another’s shoes can be a lesson for us all. Fire is brewing beneath the watery abyss of Pisces with Jupiter in Leo reminding Pisces Planets that it is okay to claim the stage and share the vision. Saturn in Sagittarius reminds Pisces to stay disciplined and bring the idealism back down to Earth so that we can have faith and learn. Mars is about to jump out of the water world and into the fire of Aries which should give us all a shot in the arm to will us into action rather than contemplation. Mars is at home in fearless fiery Aries and will lure Venus to join him very soon. Happy Lunar New Year!
