“The execution of anything considerable implies in the first place previous persevering meditation.” William Godwin
Right now, there are several planets in the sign of Pisces: Mercury, Venus, Mars, and Neptune. Pisces is a Water Sign, which means it symbolizes emotional things. It deals with the imagination, mysticism, dreams, and even delusion. Pisces also represents psychics and intuition. Ultimately, it seeks union with the divine.
With so much Piscean energy about, we would do well to sit with and sort out our own emotions and feelings. Poorly-aspected Pisces can be manipulative, deceptive, passive aggressive. Because it is so very spiritual, Pisces can find reality very harsh, too harsh to deal with sometimes. It can easily slip into victimhood or martyrdom if not properly grounded.
Soon, several planets will move into the sign of Aries, however. Mars will shift on the 11th; the Sun heralds the coming of Spring on the 20th; and Venus changes on the 21st. Aries is a Fire Sign, and therefore symbolizes action, energy, and movement. It is confident, a risk-taker, and a self-starter. Of course confidence can become arrogance and Fire can burn, so Aries needs to be learn patience too.
My favorite thing about astrology is how it reminds us to look at the big picture. Pisces becomes Aries, Winter becomes Spring, internal becomes external, feeling becomes action. The Wheel spins, and we have the chance to put into action the new spiritual and emotional lessons we’ve learned.
Sometimes it’s difficult to sit still and be patient and wait. But, to everything there is a season, and the Universe reminds us of that if we pay attention to its symbols. Have you been thinking and pondering? What have you been meditating on? Are you soon ready for action, ready to make changes?
