The mystery of Pisces

The Moon is so Full, so beautiful in Pisces tonight. Dream, drift, reminisce, meditate, fantasize, allow transcendence, open to escapism, imagination or spirit. Feel reality somewhere nearby, do not call it closer. Sweeter to keep the veil in place, to allow one’s self that soothing sense of vague unknowing.

How does one feed a Pisces Moon? What is it to tap into this energy? & what can it tell us about those who are born with this placement?
I know that Pisces is intended to be outside of what we can understand and yet I hate feeling so clueless! With a strong Pisces planets or a strong placement of Neptune it is likely easier to understand this energy – even for those who have a difficult time articulating it.

Noel Tyl says that those born with this placement “need to identify the ideal, understand impressions & work with the intangible”. I roll those words through my mind over and over.

Pisces always intrigued me and yet my lack of understanding was an annoyance. I have a hard time accepting what is so foreign to my internal make up.

Some 20 years ago, I met a young man whose chart made many connections to my Leo planets and yet his Moon was in Pisces. He knew his way around the language of astrology so I thought perhaps I would enlist his help in learning to better understand Pisces. He assured me that if I would spend one full day with him I would forever understand Pisces. I was intrigued and agreed to spend the next day with him.

I picked him up very early in the morning and we parked my car in downtown Burlington Vermont. It was a very beautiful summer morning; we walked slowly to the water, the stunningly beautiful Lake Champlain. He had shared nothing with me about how we were to spend our day. We went to the King Street Dock, rented a canoe and paddled out further into the lake than what I was comfortable with (just another sign of how uncomfortable I have always been with the depth and emotion of the Water signs – I do not even know how to swim!). Once out on the lake, far from the rest of the world (or so it seemed) my friend pulled out some medicinal herbs, which we proceeded to imbibe!

It was one of those precious few idyllic days that Vermont gets only in August. We spent the day floating on the lake, feeling every tremor of the motion of the lake. We took turns laying on the bottom of the canoe, absorbing the motion, the sense of what is unknowable.

When evening came we paddled to shore and walked back through town to my car. As I drove him home, my friend asked me: “Do you understand the energy of Pisces now?”

At that point, I was not sure I understood anything, my head felt like it had all day been in a cloud. Intangibility, impressions, passive and dreamy – that certainly had been my experience of the day. Perhaps now I did understand. The surreal, soft vagueness of our conversation as we floated in space and time. It left an impression on me. In the elusive sense of escapism I did take an understanding of the feeling behind this watery sign; within the essence of Pisces.

Now, when I encounter the energy of Pisces, the dreamy sensitive depth of feeling that I received, that beautiful summer day, is always there for me to tap into.

Hummm… Neptune does Quindicile my Moon, perhaps I should give that some thought!

I will always be grateful to my friend for teaching me the intangibility of Pisces.
