The 2017 Pisces Mixtape

Image

Shout out to all of the Pisces ! Yes, your time has come. Enchanting, intuitive and elusive, spoken words cannot fully grasp your other worldliness. All that the average person can muster to ask is: “you’re not from around here, are you?”

Whenever  others feel like they have you in their grasp, what they fail to remember is they’ve only captured one of the fish and there’s another one still swimming somewhere “out there.”

At your best, you’re creative, sensitive and empathetic- with a seductive dose of mystery that slowly inflitrates the psyche, heart and bloodstream of others.

Your shadow is the charlatan, who is so  mired in mental chaos, deception and confusion that your version of the “truth” is now illegal in all 50 states.

Your evolutionary homework consists of blending your uncanny powers of perception with the discrimination of a fact finding mission.

Discovering the grounding and the container that you need to make your dreams and ideals manifest in the outside world. Using creative visualization to build structures worthy of your time and energy.

Pisces, may the force be with you.

Aries Sun, Pisces Moon

While you’re fueled by making an impact, you’re also nourished by remaining boundless. Your heart requires a connection with all of life, but simultaneously there’s a need to relinquish wholly identifying with anything in particular. Your Sun/Moon blend speaks softly, but carries a big stick and it’s strength is often displayed through just the right amount of yielding and vulnerability to draw others in…. and then BAM!

The work of Aries (individuation, competition and going to battle) is done through the intangible realms of life associated with Pisces. The “light” of the Sun is refined in a place that most of us aren’t privy to see. Often, we ask ourselves how we can quantify or measure things like inspiration or imagination and the truth is: We can’t. And wouldn’t you know? This is the very “stuff” that feeds your soul.

There’s a part of you that really wants to get out into the world and see what you’re made of, and another which is perfectly content in remaining in the shadows-blending in. There’s a fire burning inside that reminds you that you can make a mark. However, you also know that this wouldn’t just be for you. Underneath any bravado is a deep concern for the welfare of other people. Whatever greatness that’s bestowed on you through staking your claim in the world clearly needs to be aligned with an ideal that’s larger in scope than a few complimentary words.

Surrender and flow are two words that must be etched into your vocabulary. Trusting the process of development works wonders for you as opposed to brute force. Your willingness to yield to the moment and all it has to offer can prove to be of great benefit. To employ your intuition as a means of informing your action is a wise move. That feeling in your gut is more than last night’s dinner and it’s important that you pay attention. You may not have everything figured out to the last degree, but there’s a message there that you need to heed.

Also important is the need to establish and maintain an inner sanctuary where you can retreat in order to process and distill the feelings you absorb in your sponge-like core. Periodic withdrawals for you are not selfish, but rather in your self-interest.

Venus in Sagittarius, Mars in Virgo

With this Venus/Mars combination at the helm, questions immediately arise regarding wise and discriminate use of one’s energy in reference to the ideals which they espouse. A vast appetite for personal growth is evident. There’s the thought that the “bigger” you allow yourself to be, the better.

However, concerns should be raised as to your overall level of effectiveness in your pursuits. Does your actual efficiency and production match the grandeur of your aspirations? Your bow and arrow requires precise direction, as you don’t want to be stuck on a rudderless ship with nothing but “good intentions.”

Also, it’s important for you to understand that your plan doesn’t have to be perfect in order to execute it. Your capacity to act and adjust to changing circumstances coupled with your faith is enough to get you moving. From there, you’re charged with making steady improvements.

There’s a natural square relationship between the signs of Sagittarius and Virgo which means that there’s tension present with their interaction. To navigate this terrain, pursuing constant refinement of the specific parts while never losing sight of the holistic view, is the path of development.

While your relational urges can be both expansive and hedonistic, you’re offered an anchor to ground you and enhance your staying power. One of the most valuable lessons you can learn is the dignity of finishing what you start. In doing this, your free-spirit is satiated because you’re using your freedom in a way which liberates you even more versus promoting unhealthy and overindulgent scenarios.
