Pisces are always trying to read the signs the universe is sending them. To other people, a very bad car accident is just a moment of carelessness, or bad luck. But to Pisces, it may be a warning from the universe to be more careful, or it can be a sign to make some changes in one’s life. Like Sagittarians, these intuitive folks want to know the meaning of what’s going on around them. But they prefer meaning to come in a clairvoyant instance rather than from factual, or data analysis, like Gemini or Virgo. I can tell you, as a Sun in Pisces myself, I prefer not to sift through pages of information, trying to get the information and data to spit out its meaning to me. I think Sagittarius and Pisces has that in common; Both big pictured folk who prefer their information just drop from the sky, into the brain, and with the meaning screaming from their intuition.
The Piscean clairvoyant and intuitive gifts will help keep the fish from going towards people who don’t have their best interests at heart. For example, people who just project their dirt and use our kindness for weakness. People who only want to dump their manure onto our wellbeing. The fish needs to learn how to navigate and maneuver around others creating a possible hall of mirrors because all this projection towards them will wound their energetic body. The Piscean needs to learn not to manifest (via law of attraction or the law of mirroring) a vortex where all their energy is sucked, people project onto them, and thus a magical Hall of Mirrors is now fully engrained into their 3D dimension. We Pisces are into energy and we are sensitive souls. Sociopaths, narcissists, energy vampires, psychic attackers, and gossips may use our sensitivity against us with this rotating Hall of Mirrors. They may gossip, spread false rumors, and use their toxic energy and tongue to bring us down at the workplace, school, or in the playground. There may also be ghosts (from the past), demons, fears, depression, and darker entities, that desire to cast a dark shadow on our thin hides in this elusive vortex. The mirrors in this vortex can hold such hidden shadows, blind spots, dark figures, and sorrow, as well as positive things that are hidden from plain sight.
There can be a lot of misunderstandings if you have a strong Pisces, Neptune, or 12th house flavor in your chart. Neptune fogs things up and mystery is considered a threat, and something to quarantined, to human beings that are unevolved. The projections towards Neptunians are from a place of fear and ignorance. Us Pisceans come in all different shapes and sizes; We are the priest, the teacher, the philanthropist, and thousands of other combinations. Pisces can also come in the negative form of the sinner, reprobate, and psychopath. The reason for this dark side is because every sign has a shadow. One way to quell such painful assumptions from these projections, no matter which aspect of Pisces is being displayed, is to speak up more than you do normally. I will admit, out of all signs Pisces are most fearful of being straightforward, we do not like confrontation. Neptunians can have more than one personality in our unconscious, some can be blunt (but that is the exception). We Pisceans are like a prism, try to look through us and there’s another angle to try to ‘figure out.’ All the colors of the rainbow live there. Another way Pisces can stop the arrows of projection from shooting at them is to stop projecting themselves.
Sometimes what we Neptunians see, criticize, or project onto others, is really what is also within us. If a Pisces or Neptunian looks into the Hall of Mirrors (that holds both light and shadow) that is held up in the vortex, they will see lightning striking their dark towers, black rain clouds, and grey skies. Sometimes the particular characteristic isn’t one hundred percent exact as the other person who we Pisceans project on to, or to the same (usually exacerbated) degree, but it’s there. Projections is sometimes more subtle than we think. Perhaps sometimes this projection is just a manifestation in their reality telling them to work on a part of themselves. But, ultimately, whether Neptunian or not, it is for the greater good that we escape this reflecting Hall of Mirrors.
If Pisces wants to escape this projecting Hall of Mirrors they must learn to put up their boundaries, thicken their skin, and learn not take abuse from people. It’s good for these fishes to forgive, but it’s okay to be more discerning when it comes to who you want to give a second chance to. They grow up and learn to conserve their energy for people and things that are relevant to their life. Your inner circle (no matter how big it is) is precious, and being in it should be a sacred and respectful honor for anyone who enters it.
I think, on some unconscious level, we Pisceans just want to be in communion with God. We want to ‘swim’ in the arms of the divine and just synchronize with God’s will. We prefer not to swim against the flow of life (God’s will, or the hand of God). The Piscean sees going against the hand of God as attracting suffering into one’s life. Don’t like how the path you are on is attracting blockages and pain? ‘Perhaps it’s God redirecting you to another path,’ a Pisces will think to themselves.
But knowing all this about Pisces, we still haven’t yet answered, ‘what does it mean to be a Pisces?’ Personally, I believe Scorpios and Sagittarians may desire to come to the Pisces stage of spiritual evolution. Scorpios may unconsciously want the ego to die, searching out intense experiences and soul crushing karma. All this may be Scorpio’s way of breaking the ego until one lifetime (if you believe in reincarnation) their ego cracks and they reach the ultimate consciousness! Like the flamboyant and warm colors of the leaves in autumn, Scorpios may desire the ego death that Pisces has already achieved.
And Sagittarius? Sagittarius wants God to show his face. They desire, or even lust, for God to show them his consciousness and presence to them. Being the know-it-alls of the zodiac, they desire to know it all. The shadow Sagittarius is still connected to his ego’s desire to know every thing (with perhaps Virgo in second place) and perhaps to show off to his colleagues. Sagittarius, being the College professor of the zodiac, will want to publish a book about God’s face and God’s presence if he ever does reach this state of consciousness. He, or she, may even brag about it and show it off to everyone in the world to flex his (or her) intellectual muscle.
It is better to look at the sign, Pisces, as a step in spiritual evolution rather than just a sign. I don’t think all Scorpios and Sagittarians are these flamboyant showoffs. I’m just trying to show people why they might be limited in reaching the Piscean consciousness, or enlightenment. Scorpio might be too eager and Sagittarius is still too lustful for knowledge.
At the end of the day, there is no absolute, or one meaning to any sign. I will state my opinion, though. To me, to be a Pisces means to be in touch with the flow of life (as if like a fish), be in touch with your soul, be close to God, and most importantly be kind (within reason) to everybody!
Do you have a strong Piscean energy in your chart? What about a Neptunian and 12th house emphasis? What do you think it means to be a Pisces? What are your experiences like being a Pisces?
