How to Treat your Pisces

.


The Pisces gives love constantly. The moment you withhold love from your Pisces, or treat your Pisces even a little bit harshly, you've opened the door to great sadness . Pisceans don't understand cruelty - even if it comes unwittingly from them. And the sensitive nature of Pisces makes him susceptible to great hurt. If you want to keep him around, be aware of your words and actions, and your Pisces' reaction to them. If he slinks off and hides, you know there's some serious heartache going on!

The Pisces needs compassion, water, creative or spiritual surroundings, an atmosphere of peace and calm, and ample opportunities to show off her many talents and ideas. Pisces loves to learn, and needs to be provided with information and ideas to help keep the creative juices flowing.

So be sure to provide your Pisces with imaginative, uplifting and beautiful entertainment. Don't overwhelm her with frightening images such as one might see in a violent movie. Pisces would rather not dwell on such things, and is much healthier when exposed to natural, peaceful or spiritual imagery.

Feed your Pisces with love and kindness, a sincere interest in his many dreams and ideals, respect for her creations, quiet, secluded outings, romantic conversation and your own spiritual idealism. Wake your sleepy, dreamy night-fish up in the morning, help your Pisces find the way in crowded places, guide him through confusing times and hold her hand while crossing the street. You will be rewarded with a sweet, gentle and unconditional love.

How to Treat your Aries

.


Your Aries is a highly intuitive, fiery, fast-acting, independent person who needs freedom above all. Aries people can stand alone in the world, and take pride in their ability to go through life without leaning on others. They always have a plan of action. If your Aries is not moving fast physically, you can be sure that mind is brimming with ideas. For Aries, the head is what it's all about, and Aries wants to put every idea into motion.

Let your Aries know how wonderful and special she/he is. In spite of that bold, confident appearance, or perhaps because of it, Aries can be somewhat the loner and not get support when needed. Also, your Aries may never feel truly complete or accomplished at anything because of the high standards he sets for himself. So, feed him with praise to boost his ego, and offer your loving encouragement to fan her passionate fire. Then, allow your Aries to follow those dreams, and offer helpful pointers and solutions wherever needed. You might feel invisible and unappreciated, but don't despair. Your Aries feels as if you are a part of her, and so may not understand the need to show gratitude. Just notice the way she glows inside when you give your advice, or the loving looks he gives you, and his determination to do even more. To Aries, this is the biggest thank you of all.

Most importantly, do everything possible to make your Aries feel unfettered. Like all fire signs, Aries can't stand to be led around or confined - unless as a means to an end. Let your Aries come up with the idea first, if possible. Otherwise, if you want your Aries to do something, ask gently! Your Aries has a passionate heart and the best of intentions, yet is a very sensitive, instinctual and intuitive individual. Your thoughtful love will be rewarded with heroic efforts and a proud devotion to your needs.

The Hanged Man in the Tarot

.


The Hanged Man is associated with the Sign Pisces in the Tarot

~ Sacrifice ~

The symbolism in this archetype is rich and deep, and found in nearly every mythological and religious tradition, yet this is one of the simplest cards to interpret in a reading. Sacrifice... the Hanged Man is giving up something dear to him, in this case maybe even his life. His reasons can be many or few - but ultimately, he is letting go of certain needs or desires in order to fulfill the needs of another, or group of others.

This is Martin Luther King going to jail for staging a sit- in, and finally losing his life to further the cause of racial equality. This is Jesus on the Cross - dying for our sins. This is Prometheus who is punished by the gods for giving us fire. This is Ghandi - leading countless others into deadly situations to make a stand for justice. These heroes KNEW they would be severely judged and punished. They knew they would suffer, yet their sacrifices had immeasurable value for those higher values they served - and they found the strength to go through with great pain in order to change the world.

We can see the shadow of the Hanged man in the alcoholic who gives up drinking to save her marriage, the entertainer who puts his career on the line to stand up for a cause, the mother who gives birth, and gives up work to be with her child, or conversely - who is forced to give up time with her child in order to feed her family.

The artist who gives up a nurturing relationship in order to fulfill his creative drive is sacrificing basic needs in order to make his mark in the world. Then - when he turns around and gives up his creativity to be with loved ones, he is sacrificing once again! The Hanged Man shows up whenever we stop what we're doing to attend to the needs of someone else, and especially when it is painful to give up that necessity, basic drive or comfort. In many ways, he is the exact opposite of the Devil - who serves only his own selfish needs. This archetype represents the power within us to completely surrender some part of self in order to fulfill what we perceive as something greater, or at least temporarily more important. The Devil gives up his soul for some material gain, and the Hanged Man gives up some material gain for his soul. Ultimately, who do you think wins? Certainly the Hanged Man - because he spurns the fleeting comforts of human existence - knowing that our souls go on forever.

The Hanged Man has a cause very dear to his heart, and essential to his soul purpose and evolution. He may be a martyr, but he'll never tell you that. He doesn't look for pity - only understanding and love.

If I can accomplish just one thing in life, may it be that I continue to find the courage to keep sacrificing for what I know is right, and also know when to do so... to let go of those things that do not serve my higher purpose in life, and embrace those things that send me soaring closer to sainthood... surely a long way off, but at least I can try!

The Outer Planets - Chiron, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto and the Lunar Nodes
~^. .^~

.


Uranus in Pisces! ... Uranus will stay in the Sign of the Fish 'til 2011! Spiritual Revolution you say?? Yes, that would describe it well. What can we expect with Uranus in Pisces? Perhaps our ideas about death, sacrifice, the fantastic and impossible, transcendence and service to humanity will take some dramatic and innovative turns. We can hope that humanitarianism will take on new meaning and purpose, and that service to others may become a more integral part of our social order. With this placement, Uranus can become quite reclusive or fanatical. Scientists who may have been hiding out for years in research can bring new and surprising inventions and discoveries into our midst, and Political Messiahs may come out of the woodwork. With Uranus and Neptune in mutual reception - they will rely upon each other more than usual, and herald perhaps a renewed and revolutionary (Uranus) vision for humanity (Neptune) The cost may be a certain amount of turmoil and confusion regarding just where we are going for humanity, and will probably not be without conflict.

Neptune in Aquarius (til 2012) is helping to set our expressions of love and creativity into positive, innovative motion. A change in the prevailing style in movies, fashion and art will be seen in the months and years to come - probably bringing much more in the realm of the unusual, shocking, rebellious, and inter-cultural.

Pluto in Sagittarius speaks of honesty. While Pluto remains here (till 1/25/2008), we are all challenged to be true to ourselves and others, and to accept and nurture the rich diversity of humanity and our animal companions on this earth. The world is our family, and those who are not willing to find, or at least look for the wisdom of the ages - reflected in many ways through many religions, traditions and philosophies - will surely suffer a crisis of faith.

Pluto is on the Sagittarius/Capricorn cusp from 1/26/08 until 6/14/08, harboring in a new Plutonian era of change in our social institutions, government and power structures. The very fabric of society may begin to be re-woven - these are exciting times!! With Pluto entering Capricorn accompanied by Venus and Jupiter, we may indeed feel blessed with good fortune, harmony and high ideals!

The powerful Neptune/Pluto septile, exact on Dec 1, 2006 and Feb. 21, 2007 will last (going in and out of close orb) into 2011! For those of us who are very creative, tremendous inspiration can bring influential, explosive, mind-blowing creations. In love - the potential for making inspired changes is heightened - yet there also exists the possibility of getting lost in confusion. Avoid falling into a pit of despair, or indulging in self-destructive activities. Getting nowhere fast? Look for Creative and Healthy, Inspired, Loving outlets to save your skin! Get involved in helping others.... this is especially important now! Neptune/Pluto can bring a fanaticism wthat has not been seen since the last such aspect at the beginning of WWII. Yet - this aspect is also very positive for creating lasting, humanitarian changes throughout the world.

The North and South Nodes are now on the Aquarius/Leo axis ('til 8/21/09). This node placement brings positive connections based on love for humanity and the quest for social equality, along with healing in the area of self-love and love for loyalty's sake. This is a good time to examine our motives, use our egos wisely, and take the high road - or face karmic consequences!

Chiron in Aquarius... This archetype of human compassion will be passing nonstop through Aquarius from January 06 til Feb. 2011, bringing a period of higher inspiration in the realm of healing. We may look forward to greater cooperation worldwide in the healing sciences, and perhaps going back to tradition - those time honored ways that our ancestors enjoyed and practiced in harmony with nature. Perhaps we may find more and more "health" foods (ie unaltered and unprocessed) on our grocery shelves, greater acceptance of mind-body healing approaches, and some brave new ideas to surface, too.

Mewsings from Venus & Mars... March 2008

Mars is retrograde in Gemini (until 3/5/08 when the red planet is back again in Cancer). Mars in Gemini brings the ability to multi-task, and a greater focus on our communications, community and education. For lovers who are very jealous or possessive, this can be a challenging time. Keep it real and honest, and try not to jump to conclusions!

Mars in Cancer 3/5 to 5/9 is passionately protective - a real fighter for family and country. It will be important to use patriotism wisely, and to express your fighting spirit with everyone's well being in mind!

Venus in Aquarius until 3/13 is wild and free, and looking for excitement, communication and cameraderie in relationships. She will have interesting ideas, and will not be swayed from her path!

Venus in Pisces from 3/13 to 4/6 is compassionate, sweet, loving and possibly easily led. Mars in Cancer is the perfect guide! These few weeks will be great for families and committed lovers - providing a chance to make deeper spiritual/emotional connections, reminisce meaningfully, and forge long-lasting bonds based on mutual respect and protection.

 
FUTURE FORECAST FOR LOVE
The first week in March, Mars in Gemini/Cancer opposes Pluto in Capricorn, and Venus/Mercury conjunct Chiron and Neptune in Aquarius. bringing idealized, inspired, healing love along with powerful and perhaps polarizing male combative energy. This is a time for creating change that will benefit all, and bring people closer together as a human family.

During the second week in March, Venus entering Pisces (3/12) sextiles Pluto, opposes Saturn and trines Mars, which helps us to solidify goals and make the best of any opposition from the previous week. Self discipline and good communication will help us as individuals to stay on top of responsibilities and avoid reprimands.

During the third and fourth weeks, Venus nears Uranus as the wild planet sextiles Jupiter. Venus also quintiles Pluto, and Mars octiles Neptune, bringing plenty of excitement in relationships - an optimism and willingness to try new things, and perhaps a need for change and renewal. Deeper, more spiritual and meaningful relationships are favored, as well as those that promote fellowship, cooperation and progress.

~ The Big Guys ~
Jupiter in Capricorn til 1/5/09 will help set the stage for societal changes, and perhaps help to broaden the horizons of our policy makers and power brokers. This can be a year of making great leaps forward, taking chances, and making new ways the status quo.

Saturn in Virgo 'til July 21, 2010 brings our focus to the things of the earth.. the cleanliness and purity of our physical environment. These coming years can bring a stronger sense of purpose and responsibility within our social institutions, government and authority figures regarding the sanctity and protection of our mother earth. A wonderful time this can be!! Let's feel our earth permeating society, and becoming the central focus for all we do!
