Pisces – The Mystic in You

on March 2, 2013

“You may say I’m a dreamer…but I’m not the only one. I hope someday you’ll join us, and the World will live as one.” Though these were the words of John Lennon, a Libra, he very much understood the message of Pisces, possibly by the strong behind-the-scenes influence his Pisces colleague George Harrison had on the whole band without their knowledge. The quiet one, he was called, but he incorporated all the archetypes of life and the language of the Divine. The Beatles’ lyrics were romantic, fantastical, mystical, and humanitarian.

And that is what the energy of Pisces is. Pisces is and lives the language of God.   Pisces is the Whole of life.  They are the dreamers of the world, the imaginative creative force of the World. Their dreaminess and imagination is often misunderstood as being nothing but an illusion, that they are delusional. But then again……the mystics of the World, the philosophers of the World, the masters of the World, and even the genius minds of scientists (Einstein, a Pisces, by the way) believe that the physical world is actually the illusion.
The Hindus refer to this as “Maya,” literally meaning illusion. The Buddhist refer to it as “samsara,” which does not actually mean illusion, but it is the process of continuing to create different worlds for ourselves and moving into them.  Basically…! We suffer when the illusions of our own perceptions that we create in our minds affect our lives regarding our relationships, our emotions, our thoughts.

So… Pisces really a dreamer, or do they “get it?” Do they actually know what true reality is?  This energy incorporates the energies of all the signs. It contains Aries, Taurus, Gemini…..and on and on, which is why one will find Pisces people to be extremely empathetic. They know what it is like to walk in the shoes of others, of all those archetypal signs, which explains why Pisces rules the soles of the feet!  I guess that is why they love to dance and are good at it!!!!

However, that unlimited empathy they feel can be detrimental to them as they soak up all the negativity that flows through life, as well, which is why they like to sleep. Imagine having all those energies within you! It would be exhausting! It can pull them into a funk, into feeling pity for themselves. And their empathy does not limit itself to humans, but to all beings, to all things in the World. This needs to be understood, just like Libra’s balancing act needs to be understood.

The message that Pisces brings to us after we’ve traveled the whole Zodiacal Wheel is that we should try to be integrated with the blessings that each sign gives to us. We need to be communicators (Gemini), we need to be resourceful (Scorpio), we need to be persistent and determined (Capricorn), we need logic (Virgo) and all the other gifts that the Zodiac brings to us to get through in this life. Pisces is all of this. They truly understand and perceive that all is One. Pisces is the Astral World.

Pisces “believes.” This is the energy of faith and religion and hope, which is probably why during the Age of Pisces we had the establishment of conformed religion. Interesting to note that the Pope’s last official day in performing his Papal duties falls in the energy of the Sun being in the constellation of Pisces! The Age of Aquarius is about unity, one mind, one religion, one God, which, really, is what Pisces is about, but Aquarius needs Pisces’ faith and belief and integration to make it happen. So one age ends and another begins! What does the resignation of the Pope which has not happened but once before 600 years ago really mean for the future? We will have to keep our radars up for that one!

And again you probably ask….okay, so what does Pisces mean to me? This is the energy of yoga, of meditation, of astrology, of Tarot, of dreams, of imagination, of fantasy, of art, of all mysticism! It is the creativity of our minds and our thoughts. We all love these things in our life. Who doesn’t love to watch an animated fantasy movie. It stirs us up emotionally, brings out the creativity within us. When we use our imagination, we can visualize, create, and then manifest in our daily lives. Pisces is all about creative visualization!

So this is a perfect time to meditate, to take yoga classes, to pay attention to your dreams. Use your imagination. When meditating, use creative visualization if there is something you either want to rid yourself of in your life or attract to you, and keep a journal of what you “hear“ or “see“ as an answer to your visualization. Look at the World through eyes of empathy and compassion, walk in others’ shoes. Enjoy art and poetry. Go into your imagination…..become a mystic!

In yoga, this is a wonderful energy to take Flow classes. Maybe even Google Shiva Rea (a Pisces) and see if you can find one of her classes being streamlined, or maybe go get one of her DVDs. When performing your sequences, imagine yourself flowing like a dancer from one pose to another, seeing yourself as whatever you wish to be as you stay focused in the center of your Third-Eye.  Think of the prolific Fish, the symbol of Pisces, as they flow through the waters of our consciousness, one reaching for the Divine, the other towards our physical selves.  “As above….so below.”

And for fun……do the Snoopy Dance! This energy loves to dance!

Enjoy this time of imagination and creativity where all dreams “can” come true, and see you next month when we start all over again, a little wiser than we were before! (Pisces is the Wholeness of the circle, the beginnings and endings….thus, Winter to the joys of the Spring Equinox where life returns)

“Here Comes the Sun, and I say it’s all right!“
With love,
