Whether Astrology is science or magic, we’re open to most things, if they may be of benefit. ~ Ed.
I’ve been visiting the ocean, and Pisces has opened my heart to the beauty of its depths.
Pisces is the astrological sign which occurs from February 19th to March 20th and is the last of the 12 zodiac signs. Although Pisces is said to contain aspects of every sign preceding it, it has an imprint all its own.
When I think of the astrological sign of Pisces, I picture aquamarine water, mermaids, water nymphs and mystical music drawing me down an unknown path.
The Piscean soul is indeed brave to live under the influence of Neptune. Pisces are ungrounded—two fish swimming in opposite directions—and emotional dreamers, swayed in extremely opposite directions. They are a spiritual sign, capable of great insights.
I recommend crystals and sacred stones, for the sensitive, loving Piscean, who wears their heart on their sleeve.
The crystal’s grounding capability is valuable to the Pisces who cannot keep their feet on the ground, metaphorically or physically. I would also recommend grounding, heavier food for the Piscean who finds themselves lost to their emotions or the shortcomings of a lover or family member.
Smoky quartz can be placed directly on the feet by Pisces while doing a grounding meditation or exercise.
There is no doubt that Pisces are magical.
They have a certain fluidity to move between worlds: physical and astral, the above and below.
Pisces has two birthstones, amethyst and the ever-alluring moonstone. Either can be worn as a pendant for protection, to cleanse the aura and provide boundaries.
It’s important for Pisces to establish boundaries. Crystals are valuable tools, but they cannot replace the practice of protecting oneself from unwelcome energies. This is difficult for Pisces who has such a beautifully expanded heart.
Pisces can gaze into a moonstone orb for spiritual insights and to strengthen their intuition. It does not have to be large—a round polished moonstone will do.
Other stones and crystals that Pisces will find useful are aquamarine, blue smithsonite (for grounding and balancing), turquoise (to connect to the energy of the sea), blue lace agate and fluorite. When choosing a stone, always pick the one your soul resonates with; you should feel a quickening when you touch the stone.
A Pisces cannot be expected to fit a specific mold.
We can learn many things from Pisces, both from what they do well and not so well. Their path is ever changing and follows the tides as governed by Luna.
How can a Pisces be anything but who they are: a mystery, a symphony of questions and spiritual wanderings?
A wonderful birthday gift for Pisces is a treasure chest filled with their most beneficial stones or a trip to the ocean.
