PISCES ZODIAC DEITY
The symbol for Pisces, a water sign, is two connected fish swimming in opposite directions and linked together by a band that keeps them connected throughout the cycles of life. Bound by this silver cord, the fish swim between Spirit and Matter, between the constellations of Aries and Aquarius. One fish is heads out to the edge of the Universe, while the other to the depths of the seas. The directions the fish swim represent the path into evolution and the Path of Return. One fish represents the soul, the other the personality or form.
Three Keynotes of the Duality of Pisces
- Bondage or captivity
- Renunciation or detachment
- Sacrifice and death
There are three cycles or sets of duality in this sign, each needing to be synthesized. In the first cycle the soul is captive in substance, descending into the ocean of matter.
As the polar opposite of Pisces, Virgo is one of the most significant of the signs of the zodiac for it holds the germ and ultimately represents the goal of the human evolutionary process. That goal is to reveal the veiled spiritual reality of matter. Virgo’s keynote is “The Christ in you, the hope of Glory.” This is the seed that lies dormant in Pisces
The fluid, sensitive Pisces temperament that is mediumistic and psychically polarized is stabilized in Virgo. The two signs balance each other as Virgo provides the impetus for mental introspection and critical analysis. Soul and form are united in Virgo. They have blended and are of great importance to one another. Virgo represents synthesis and the relation of spirit and matter after they have been brought together. The purpose for form life begins to be realized in Virgo. The seed that was hiding the spiritual reality is alive and reveals the beauty of spirit in matter. Their functions are basically interchangeable.

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.
QUALITY TO OVERCOME: Emotional ups and downs.
LESSON TO LEARN: The meaning of Divine Love.
MOTIVATED BY: A desire to escape from physical living.
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.
