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 Moon in the Tarot

~ Going Within ~
the Moon represents the emotional or astral body - the soul's memory of all earthly feeling. This is where the deepest human feelings reside, in the Moon's play of light and shadow, her dance with the Sun. In many decks, the Moon is portrayed as two dogs baying at the Moon, one wild - representing our primal, uncontrolled emotional responses, and the other tame - to show the civilized restraint that we as social beings are capable of.

Imagine you are struck by a strong emotion... surprise, sadness, shock, fear, anger - whatever feels most familiar to you. Now feel the actual feeling - and think about your outer, visible response. While some of us react immediately, many people instinctively close up and hide. Often, we need time to withdraw from others - to go within and sort out the feelings welling up inside. Sometimes there is outright embarrassment.

The Moon is internal, thoughtful - busy getting in touch with the swirl and tumble of feelings within her. In astrological terms, she is Zodiacal Cancer, the crab (another key image in this card) - whose moods change with the lunar phases and who often hides in her shell. She cares deeply for others, and in caring can become entangled in their needs - losing track of her own. Or, she can drown piteously in her own problems - tangled in a sea of emotion.

But however she may react, there is a withdrawal from the world on some level. Even in anger one tends to close up and shut everyone else out. The emotions take hold, seen or unseen, and we are essentially all alone. With the Moon, we go within, and dare not let anyone - outside our most intimate circle - into our innermost souls, and even they may feel left out for a time. Fear can creep in if we have difficulty coming to terms with the feelings that hold us in their grip.

But while we are immersed in her ocean, we may also see things more clearly through the reflective forces of the Moon as she reaches in and touches us in our solitude. Relationships come into focus, and those things we've kept hidden even to ourselves are illuminated in a dreamy misty light - and beg for attention. This is the time to take action - when the lunar forces are at their peak, and we are sure, through and through, about what needs must be met. The Moon is an essential part of you. She is the concern that wakes you up at night, the nagging desire that fuels your imagination, and the primal, natural forces of emotion that keep you alive. You may hide from her, howl at her or hail her with joy, but you cannot deny her her power!

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 is in Capricorn now until 2024. The very fabric of society may begin to be re-woven - but not before old structures are dismantled. Capricorn is about authority, success, achievement and social order. Pluto is about death and regeneration. Pluto asks us to dig deep and USE what is best in our world to create something much better. We need to avail ourselves of and share our brightest and most humanistic minds (Uranus in Pisces, Neptune in Aquarius!!), and not descend into blind destructiveness, greed or desperation.

The powerful Neptune/Pluto septile, exact on February 15th, 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 the sort of fanaticism that has not been seen since the last such aspect at the beginning of WWII. Yet - this aspect also has the potential to inspire lasting, humanitarian changes throughout the world.

From 8/22 to 3/4/2011, the North & South Nodes are on the Capricorn/Cancer axis, bringing a focus on relationships that can help us to achieve our goals, do our very best, and encourage us to honor our teachers, supporters and mentors. As we enter this phase, take time to remember ancestors and to acknowledge valued family members, yet to let go of those memories and belongings that no longer serve us. Reach out with enthusiasm for new opportunities that may present themselves!

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
~ Future Forecast ~ for Love

Venus in Pisces from 2/12 to 3/7 is more inclined to bend to the needs of other, and find ways to maintain peace and harmony. While she's busy dreaming of a better world, take time to treat her to a little special time for herself.

With Mars in Leo from 10/17/09 to 6/17/2010 (!!!) - LONG retrograde from 12/20/09 to 3/10/2010!, males will want to really shine, and egos may seem especially large - but certainly family matters will take on increased importance, as well as the desire to maintain a spotless reputation. To make the most of Mars in Leo, try to keep it fun and playful, and leave the stress behind .

Venus in Aries 3/12 through the end of March is bold, self-directed, and unstoppable. Loving partners may feel more "fiery", and could be looking for a little extra excitement - keep it close to home!

Future Forecast for Love

During the first week in March, Venus conjuncts Uranus with Jupiter/Sun not far behind in Pisces, and trines Mars, bringing added interest and intelligence to our connections with loved ones and the world. Speak your heart to others, and share your wisdom openly.

The second week, Venus opposes Saturn and squares Pluto, bringing solemnity and possibly a desire for change in relationships. There may be power struggles or intrigue, and honesty and empathy will be the only cure for misunderstandings.

During the third week, Mars sextiles Saturn. This is a terrific time to network, begin a new project or routine, make solid plans, and take hold of your dreams.

During the 4th week, Venus sextiles Neptune/Chiron, and Jupiter sextiles N.Node & quintiles Pluto.. Healing and caring for others may become a priority. Open your mind and heart, take right action, and see how easily a difficult situation can be changed for the better!

~ The Big Guys ~

Jupiter in Pisces from 1/19/10 to 6/6/10, brings sensitivity, charity and healing energy when it comes to our outlook on culture, education, and social justice. This is a good time to become active in causes that benefit those less fortunate in the world, and in our communities.

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 from authority figures regarding the sanctity and protection of our mother earth. A wonderful time this can be!! Let's make conscious guardianship of our world the central focus for all we do!
