BASIC SOUL PURPOSES: A PISCES INCARNATION is one in which she struggles with duality, especially the struggle of fusing her personality with the Soul/Higher Self. PLUTO, as her soul level ruler, provides the necessary destruction of old forms from previous incarnations so that renewal may take place as the soul returns into a new cycle as Aries. PISCES is both the culmination of a cycle and preparation for a new cycle on the spiritual evolutionary spiral.

INCOMPATIBLE ENERGIES: Those of air and fire elements – often compatible Ascendant energies will largely overcome incompatibility.
NEUTRAL ENERGY: PISCES
An intimate relationship with another PISCES means inability to recharge each other’s energy field. There is a tendency to blend and “act as one element.” Unless there are other strong energizing elements present, there can be a slow starvation of the nervous system. Conflict need not be present.
Attraction to others attuned to an element one lacks usually does not form the basis for a lasting relationship. One or both end up saying, “We are too different.”
Relationships can be either “too intense” or “devitalizing” according to the energy combinations of both persons. A strong reason for knowing the Soul Maps of those with whom we have close personal relationships. We can work positively with what we know.
Sleeping together merges the energy fields and can dramatically affect each person’s state of health, for good or ill. If in an intimate relationship with a neutral or incompatible Sun Sign, sleeping in separate beds/bedrooms can be very beneficial. (Stephen Arroyo, Astrology, Psychology, & the Four Elements)
EVOLUTIONARY SPIRAL: (According to Alan Oken, Soul-Centered Astrology) – as we grow holistically, we spiral upward from Personality-centered »> Awakening to Soul-Personality relationship »> Soul-Centered individual.
Functioning totally on the Personality-Centered Level – PISCES, at this level, is sensitive to everyone and everything, with an inability to discriminate the source of that sensitivity. The astral plane and solar plexus are usually quite open and undisciplined, so that sensation is often mistaken for consciousness, psychic impressionability for spiritual understanding, sympathy for compassion. Experience is usually instinctual and emotional. PISCES’ openness and acceptance tends not to be grounded in any practical form. PISCES’ altruistic sentiments often end up in “throwing herself away” on someone, or to so completely merge with the energies of the group as to “almost disappear.” This totally unconscious aspect of martyrdom/self-sacrifice is unhealthy. The expansive nature of PISCES’ waters extends outward with no dams or shoreline, flooding the surrounding area. As a result, PISCES can end up completely dominating her environment, family, and friends as she oozes out indiscriminately. Thus, in her efforts to extend outward (to be altruistic), PISCES on the personality level, can take over and through subtle seepage control her environment. The urge for other worlds and existences (remember the solar plexus is open to the astral plane) often leads to substance abuse or other escapist practices. PISCES, at this level, is attracted to religious groups that are emotional and showy. PISCES circumvents the mental discipline required to uncover her own inner wisdom.
Awakening to the Soul-Personality Relationship – PISCES now begins to orient herself along specific lines of intention or direction. The fluidity which is at the very core of PISCES remains, but is now more consciously contained in its search for balance between the high and low tides. A study of bio-rhythms can be most helpful for PISCES. At high tide, PISCES can offer an enormous amount of understanding to a project. Within her being, she has access to an unlimited supply of prior life talent and resources. Meditating on the ocean is helpful in understanding PISCES. No amount of force can hold it back; yet, it needs structures in which it can be used for practical purposes. Planets in Aries and/or Capricorn can be of great help in structuring PISCES’ self-expression during high tide.
During low tide, PISCES needs to withdraw, to gather herself together, to rid herself of all the energies she has unconsciously soaked up in her environment. PISCES is a very magnetic energy, which can create havoc in relationships. Others may not want to be pulled into an ocean of emotional situations.
PISCES is now moving toward the spiritual and attunement to higher values. She is experimenting with the instinctual and the intuitive, the real and the ideal, and even the sacred and the profane. Sensitivity to others takes on a much more solid grounding as PISCES develops her ability to discriminate. She is moving into a relationship with her polarity energy—Virgo—that will eventually lead to the unfolding of true intuition, conscious self-sacrifice, and an attitude of universal service.
Soul-centered Individual – PISCES, at this level, awakens to her role as a World Savior and her part in the unfolding of the Divine Plan on this planet. PLUTO’s transformative and regenerative energies now move into the conscious awareness. The task is the smashing of all crystallized forms of life that inhibit the flow of spiritual reality and loving inclusivity. It is here that the true soldiers of God are born, carrying with them the strongest of weapons—the love and wisdom of the 2nd RAY. The lessons of PISCES at this level are: the lesser is always sacrificed for the Greater and the way of the Soul is always inclusive. From the undisciplined life of PISCES at the personality level »> she has moved into the crucified life of the personality awakening to the Soul »> to the resurrected life of the soul-centered PISCES. From “slave” to her instincts and astral impressions »> she moved to “servant” as a PISCES personality awakening to her soul »> to the “Savior” of the soul-centered PISCES. She now affirms, “I leave the Father’s house and, turning back, I save.”
This I BELIEVE, THEREFORE I AM sign can be empathetic, compassionate, imaginative, creative, and self-sufficient. PISCES possesses an innate ability to “absorb” complex material; her mind is extremely active. PISCES can be highly intuitive, adaptable, congenial, and versatile. PISCES may appear to be strong and very determined on the outside, but inside the inner doubts are seething. She needs reassurance from others. PISCES needs to learn to use her prophetic gifts and to listen to her strong intuition. As a result, she will benefit greatly on an emotional/spiritual basis. These gifts are to be used to serve others, not for PISCES’ gain. PISCES will always feel at her best when serving others. When she fails to express her compassionate nature, she can become moody and introverted. A neat, congenial home helps PISCES to balance her emotional ups and downs. PISCES needs to channel her inborn desire to escape physical living into creative activities. PISCES is attracted to all forms of art and needs to engage in them. PISCES can be a fine musician and healer. PISCES is instinctively aware of her limitations and her capabilities. The knowledge of her limitations often results in an inferior complex. Many PISCES enjoy acting because it allows them to escape into another character and temporarily forget the inferiority complex.
In love, PISCES is very sentimental and romantic. She likes to receive unexpected gifts from loved ones as well as give them. She is faithful and loyal, but tends to place her loved one on a pedestal. When that loved one falls off the pedestal, she can be disillusioned. PISCES children need parental attention and a strong sense of security in order to assist them in dealing with their tumultuous emotions.
When PISCES is connected with her inner Source of Being, she is capable of great achievements. When PISCES is true to her inner Source, she has a high and holy destiny—that of World Savior.
NEGATIVE CHARACTERISTICS: (Remember that as you focus on developing your positive characteristics, the negative ones tend to disappear. Those who express in negative ways are frustrated, consciously or unconsciously, because they are not being who they truly are.)
PISCES, as the last sign in the zodiac, is clearing up odds and ends left over from prior incarnations. PISCES is moody, hypersensitive, impressionable, indecisive, changeable, and prone to self-pity. The combination of these characteristics and having to deal with past life residue renders PISCES introspective and difficult to understand. If asked, “what is wrong,” PISCES is not likely to know. PISCES needs to be alone, to regularly retreat, to be away from the world in which they feel so uncomfortable. Because of PISCES’ undifferentiated psychic sensitivity on the personality level, she is open to being obsessed by astral entities or to have them attach to her. PISCES has a deeply hidden pride that is fiercely defended if threatened. PISCES suffers from an inferiority complex and feelings of unworthiness. She never feels she has done enough, so she will overwork, overgive, and overstress her physical body. PISCES tends not to care for her physical body Temple, often rendering it a Tavern in which great suffering ensues. PISCES without a spiritual orientation feels separated, resulting in a tendency to be submissive and to completely resign herself to whatever life hands her. PISCES suffers tremendously when two factors are ignored: 1) she must be creative and 2) she must serve in constructive ways—constructive for self and for others.
