Astrology and Health
The Sun brightened sensitive Pisces, a feminine sign on your birthday. In astrology, the Sun stands for your inner nature, the true mark of your character. The twelfth sign of the Zodiac, Pisces is ruled by fortunate Jupiter and new age Neptune. A mutable (changeable and communicative) sign, dreamy Pisces is the exaltation of Venus, the goddess of love and artistic sensibility. It is a water sign, so Piscean people are creative, sensitive and deeper than they appear on the surface, although they can be emotionally vulnerable, clinging and rather melancholic.
The light of the Sun, ruler of our inner nature, is somewhat dimmed in Pisces, the home of Jupiter (lord of the gods) and his elusive brother Neptune (the king of the sea). Jupiter gives you a thirst for knowledge and understanding, with a natural lucky streak.
Neptune brings out your sensitive and spiritual qualities, but it can also lay you open to deception and intrigue (that is if it's not you who is doing the deceiving!). You have probably noticed that Neptune can stimulate a thirst of a quite different variety — a thirst for liquor, drugs and addictive substances in general (including the addictions of love... ). Both of these great planets influence your personality.
Sensitive Pisces reacts emotionally to everything. You just give in to your feelings, a trait which can lay you open to control by the unscrupulous. But then, you yourself are fairminded and not at all afraid to bend unbreakable rules, should the situation demand a more humane approach. You would make an excellent judge, a sensitive administrator, or a quite inspirational teacher.
Compassionate Pisces is idealistic, although you have a tendency towards sacrificing yourself on the altar of love, or some other noble cause. Hmmm. You really must watch that tendency to play the martyr.
Despite your sensitive personality and delicate physical constitutions, you really are a survivor. You outlast those who may be much stronger, by adapting more easily to the demands of changing circumstances. Your intuitions are reliable and should be trusted; you may even have natural psychic powers, which can be developed, given the right circumstances. This could help you succeed in many aspects fo your life, like chance games like bingo and also just generally improving the way you live. However, because you are adaptable and so readily identify with the feelings of others, you risk exploitation and loss of your own needs, ideas, and talent. Of course, intuitive Pisces understands the moods and behaviour of others so well that you can be quite a manipulator behind the scenes. Pisces is a dual sign, which has both an up and a down-side.
The two fishes in your astrological sigil swim in either direction. Here is your choice: focus, be strong and overcome the weaknesses in your sensitive nature, or dissolve in vague longings and become the victim of your own vulnerability. For the sake of your emotional equilibrium, develop a private place of your own, or at least take a private time for daily retreat and relaxation. Your most creatively stimulating and soothing environment is close to water, especially near the ocean.
Shy Pisceans would often rather impersonate someone else than be themselves. No wonder so many of you are actors, artists, writers, and dreamers. Elusive Neptune makes it hard to predict how you will develop. Some of you are neat and well-organized, while others become slovenly and careless — largely a reflection of your emotional reactions to the environment. Your intense imagination can lead you to stretch the truth under many circumstances, the other side of the coin to your creative ability to write fantastic novels, poetry and produce other artistic endeavours.
Confronting your own vulnerability, you can be a daredevil and risk-taker. The thrills of car racing, piloting a plane, exploring the wilderness, or hunting game can be seductive. A compulsive eater, you face a lifelong battle of the bulge. Sports and physical fitness routines are a good way to keep in shape and reduce emotional stress. Horseback riding, dancing, skating, swimming or sailing are favoured activities.
Pisces rules the feet and lymphatic system. Swelling, allergic reaction to drugs, injuries to the feet and related problems are common complaints, but your emotional nature can also make you vulnerable to psychosomatic illness.
Your colours are pale green, purple, rose, and grey-blue. Pisces rules metallic pewter, while your birthstones are aquamarine, chrysolite and moonstone. Aquamarine seems to disappear when placed under water, like your shy Piscean self, which often wishes it could disappear so easily. Flowers for Pisces are the orchid, lilac, wisteria, lotus, white poppy, and pansy.
