Aries to Pisces: An Astrological Journey

July 3, 2016

It is interesting how the signs, from Aries through to Pisces, tell a continuing and changing story, and how each sign changes the focus of the one preceding it.

Just to be different, lets start with Pisces: We are all One (we come from Spirit, and we return to Spirit, each and every one of us. We Are, as One, and in more than just the relationship sense of relating to one other person)

Aries: I Am (my self, my individuality, my ego self and my personal challenges – I have separated from the womb of Pisces where I was One with my mother)

Taurus: I Have (all of my possessions, including my self worth and physical bodily attributes – this is MY body)

Gemini: I Think (and I am full of ideas and I communicate and I multi-task really well)

Cancer: I Feel (and I collect photos, feelings and emotional experiences, and I am very sensitive)

Leo: I Create (wonderful, fun creations, and even though I am a generous person with a big heart and I do a lot for others, I am quite a self-absorbed person)

And after that, the signs seem to incorporate the larger world and outer reality a lot more.

The service oriented Virgo (I Serve, and in doing so I sacrifice myself for others, just like my opposite sign of Pisces)

The relationship-focused Libra (We Are, as opposed to opposite sign Aries’ “I Am”)

Scorpio’s “I Desire” (intense, personal, focused pursuit, that definitely does include other people!)

Sagittarius: “I See, and I Seek”: “I find other people’s philosophies really interesting -oh, what an interesting way of looking at life, I could talk about that for hours, and I wonder what the truth really is”… and I better move on to the next sign before it takes up all of this article… 🙂

Concrete Capricorn: “I Learn, and I Teach” (Black and White, this is the way it is – ‘Reality’ and the rules, and this is my structure. My way or the highway. Don’t bother me with philosophies; I have ‘concretised’ my philosophy on life, and this is the way it is)

Aquarius: “I Know” (Don’t try to lecture me or tell me what to do. I want to break all the rules, rules are made to be broken, I like to pursue alternative ways of doing things, predictability is boring, it’s time for a change, I’ve had enough of the ‘same old same old’. I sense a better way, and I’m going to manifest it down here on earth)

And back to compassionate Pisces: “I Believe” (We are all souls, living in these physical bodies. I try not to judge until I’ve walked a mile in someone else’s shoes; there but for the grace of God go I – we are all one).

The 12th House – A Positive Spin

November 1, 2015

The 12th house of the zodiac wheel contains a certain amount of mystery, and when one looks on the web in an endeavour to find out more about it, there seems to be a lot of misinformation and confusion around it (in written form). This is natural because the 12th house aligns with the 12th sign of Pisces. Remember that the sign of Pisces contains two fishes; one swimming upstream, and one swimming downstream. One fish could be considered generally negative, and the other broadly positive.

Unfortunately, the majority of people seem to identify the negatives more easily than the positives when it comes to astrology (and perhaps life in general).

Yes, acting out the downstream fish can lead to self undoing, imprisonment, institutionalisation etc (and anything else restricting and negative that the imagination may dream up). And the imagination has a lot to do with both Pisces and the 12th house. But lets look at the upstream fish – the one that swims against the current towards consideration and compassion for others and personal spiritual growth and enlightenment, rather than the downstream one which can sometimes disappear in a cloud of beer froth, or perhaps diminish ones spiritual progress with overindulgence in hard liquor or drugs.

I am someone who has two planets in the 12th house, and one in Pisces itself. I have a Neptune flavoured North and South Node also. If I didn’t have these natal placements, I wouldn’t be writing this.

I enjoy my 12th house and its placements. Yes, I enjoy my solitude, and need a bit of it everyday, and the occasional weekend alone is great for personal introspection, but I am also a very social person. i like all the different types of people in the world (just like all the different types of fish in the ocean). And, in true Piscean style, I recognise that the ocean is the one habitat that contains all those individual types of fish. Individuality within the Oneness.

To me, the 12th house is like a joyful monastery.

Imagine a monastery in a beautiful setting with plenty of silence, contemplation, dedication and devotion (to something greater) going on within it. And experiencing amazing personal spiritual breakthroughs every now and then. Seeing and recognising the light that resides at the centre of ones being.

We all have a personal beautiful spiritual light shining at the centre of ourselves. Sometimes the accumulated shadows of our subconscious mind may diminish that light from time to time, and in varying degrees. Correct use of our 12th house represents our opportunity to break through those personal shadows (we all have our ‘story’) and let our light shine. Our 12th house represents our opportunity to recognise our own personal light, and then amplify it, without attributing it to something outside of ourselves (there is no separation – separation is an illusion)

That is what the 12th house represents for me.

I don’t want to live my life in a monastery, and I surely don’t, but I sure do enjoy those special spiritual 12th house times!
