Though true for everyone, the following information will feel more relevant to you if your sun, north node, Chiron and/or a group of other planets are in Pisces on your birth chart.
What Is Pisces’s Intention?
In our journey toward an ever-expanding sense of self, Pisces brings us to knowing a oneness with all that is. To the extent we believe God to be outside our self, Pisces will haunt us until we actually experience that we are part and parcel of God. Pisces, home at last!
Our inner Neptune always feels oneness, but because our ego has been unaware of any direct experience of our divine connection, we have struggled through various substitutes, from religious martyrdom to drug addiction and more. Pisces’ spiritual intention is to give us conscious access to our divine wholeness in infinite, eternal and unconditional love.
We learn to be nonjudgmental and compassionate. We free our minds with meditation and self-reflection. We relax our need to fix the world, and surrender our anxiety to a higher power and a divine plan. Our ego learns to relax totally, sometimes seeming nonexistent. We feel at peace, not by denying worldly reality, but by incorporating divine reality.
Our unconscious inner Pisces, feeling the longing, but not knowing how to create authentic connection to our divine wholeness, can feel vague, disorientated and a victim to life. Our deep feeling Neptune, always connected to others, can be oversensitive to others’ pain, creating emotional confusion and self-doubt. This can lead to escape through alcohol, fantasies or even mental illness. Or we might try to force a spiritual connection, a seeming death to our ego, through religious cults, martyrdom or drugs. Sometimes we can invoke divine awareness through music or other artistic experiences.
What needs healing and growth?
Our ego, blind to the illusions of its limited senses, can suffer greatly from a lack of faith or trust in God. The world can seem entirely unfair and merciless. One can shut oneself to the divine and create a hard shell of cynical pragmatism, afraid of opening to others, yet painfully desiring connection. And we can feel overly sensitive to others, like an open sore, lacking boundaries. The pain can crush us, drive us to escapism or, more positively, to creative and artistic expression, and eventually to our inner spiritual resources.
After lifetimes of blame, rescuing others, denying self, escaping and recovering from various addictions, we eventually begin to experience a larger order to life. There is justice within the unjust, fairness in the unfair, blessings in every turn of events. Love is ever present and supporting us in everything we experience. We open our spiritual heart to receiving and giving that love, thus grounding our soul in full presence in this physical dimension.
What can I do this month?
To heal and evolve your Pisces self, give attention to your spiritual awareness. Do you blame outside yourself? Do you feel alienated from God? Do you get confused around other people’s feelings? Can you feel compassion without needing to rescue? Do you trust the flow of life? Can you feel your divine connection to others, beyond just a concept? Do you meditate and spend time alone in self-reflection? Do you trust that this seemingly unfair and cruel world is actually perfect for all souls in it? Does that last question tend to annoy you?
