Scanning the Stars: Sun in Pisces

Sun in Pisces

by Michael McClain,


The Sun is in this last sign of the zodiac from 20 February until 20 March each year. The symbol for Pisces is the Fish.


In Pisces, the Sun is sensitive and idealistic. You are “tuned in” to your environment, and aware of everything happening in your world, and to everyone around you. Pisces is the dream sign of the zodiac. You may be one of the true dreamers of the world, often getting caught up in impractical plans and ideas. You absorb the ideas and the mental outlook of those around you, for better or for worse. The decisions that you make may be workable, if sometimes emotional and erratic. Often these decisions are made on hunches and feelings with little or no foundation in fact. Creative, spiritual and often a bit mystical, you can be impractical and illogical.


You’re a moody and introspective person, and it’s hard for others to understand you. It may be hard for you to understand yourself sometimes. Your temperament varies from being optimistic to being acutely pessimistic.


Although you may be very shy and unassuming, you care deeply about your stature and succeeding in your endeavors. You may feel vulnerable and anxious when you are unsure of your status and circumstances. You have a deeply hidden inner pride and when this is attacked in any way, you react emotionally.


Compassionate, tolerant, kind, and loving, you are easily influenced by others because you don’t want to hurt anyone. Always charming and likable, you are good to those in distress. You are as fond of animals as you are people. You are sympathetic to the world’s unfortunate, including every stray animal and helpless soul you meet. You are more concerned with others’ well-being than your own, and you want to save people from themselves. You are easily taken in by a hard-luck story and often leave yourself open to be used. You are always there with a shoulder to cry on for your friends in need. Frequently people take advantage of this compassionate nature.


If you are a typical Pisces, you’re likely to suffer from an inferiority complex. You probably lack an adequate sense of self-confidence, as you are so very sensitive, shy and introspective. You never feel that you do enough, so you often overwork, putting stress on your physical body. In your quiet way, you accomplish much. Having a natural tendency to become a workaholic, you must have a generous amount of escape time, preferably with total solitude.


Pisces, more than any other sign, draws strength or weakness from the rest of the horoscope. The nature of Pisces is very adaptable and pliable. You may have to fight for a sense of stability and to resist the impulses of the moment.

Scanning the Star for February 18th/19th, 2015: New (Black) Moon

February 18th/19th, 2015: New (Black) Moon


a message from Sarah Varcas

To read more of Sarah’s articles visit Awakenings, Intuitive Astrology for Heart and Soul


You may be wondering what sign this New Moon is in and what’s a Black Moon? Answering the second question is easier than the first: a Black Moon is the second New Moon during the Sun’s journey through a single zodiac sign (known as a ‘solar month’). The answer to the first question is a little more complex, for whilst, technically speaking this New Moon is in Aquarius, it is so close to the cusp of Pisces it’s almost redundant to allocate it one sign or the other. This is a rare state of affairs and one with great significance. For whilst one often hears mention of planets being ‘on the cusp’, most often they’re actually in the first or final degrees of a sign and someone’s playing fast and loose with the cuspal zone! This New Moon, however, is most definitely on the cusp placing us in the borderlands between one sign and another.

The Moon is new at 11:48 pm GMT on 18th February. Had it been a few minutes later it would have been in Pisces. But it wasn’t and that’s what matters! This Moon resonates deeply with our current state as we cross the border between astrological ages. The Age of Pisces fades as the Aquarian Age takes shape. This process takes many generations to complete and it would be wrong to state categorically we are now in the Aquarian Age just as it would be wrong to state the opposite. To be alive during the shift of the ages is a great blessing although it can, at times, feel like a great curse!! Akin to enduring an endless earthquake which repeatedly hits wherever we thought we were safest, it may look like something of a personal disaster which turns out to be the biggest stroke of collective luck when we finally decide to go with the flow and see where it takes us. This Moon assures us that the efforts of Uranus and Pluto in their square since 2012 will not have been in vain if we surrender to the imperative of deep and enduring, not fleeting and cosmetic, change.

The true power of this Moon lies in her foresightedness, for she brings visions of hope for a world made new. It may look like wishful thinking and provoke our inner cynic, but she remains unperturbed by those who fail to see what to her is undeniably clear: that what we are as human beings, our very nature, the communities we build, the relationships we share, the priorities upon which our world is built, are dissolving now, slowly but surely, like it or not. Whether we are waving an excited goodbye or clinging on for dear life, change is upon us, so deep and so wide that nothing and no one can avoid it. And rather than change happening to us, in fact we are the change. Evolution happens within, as an integral process that animates the evolving life-form. It’s not an event but a way of being, a changed heartbeat, a new flow of Vital Force in each and every cell. As this planet shifts so do we. This Black Moon affirms that yes, we live in the End Times. But the ending is a new beginning and the shadows of the abyss over which many are peeking right now is merely hiding the light of rebirth which burns forever bright in the heart of darkness.

Just as our each and every cell is made new by the forces of change that currently flood our planet, we each are cells of a much larger organism. As Mother Earth herself delivers the new age for us we can offer or deny her the love and support she needs for the birth. The worst excesses of humanity’s estrangement from its own essence have been perpetrated against our planetary Mother who has sustained and nurtured us from age to age. She cries out to us now for a deeper commitment to her welfare over and above that to our own egoic comfort. She wants to take us with her into the new but will go on alone if we continue to prioritise our desires above her survival. She will still be here in centuries to come. Humanity’s future is less certain.

This deeply powerful Moon reaches out to each and every one with a heartfelt plea: make evolutionary change your priority, your ‘raison d’etre’. Commit to the long haul whatever it takes. Connect with Source, experience your true nature, relinquish the egoic armour grown layer upon layer as life has challenged and broken you. Forget the past, not in an act of denial but a radical commitment to healing which makes all things new, not just in part but completely. The shift of ages requires spiritual warriors, courageous lovers and those so fiercely compassionate that nothing can escape their healing embrace. And it demands of us integrity so sharp it makes us bleed and eye-watering honesty so raw we are naked before it. Only then can we change deeply enough to become the very source of evolution, its driving force not its hapless victims. Its essence, not its effluence!

I love the feel of this Black Moon, challenging though she is. She straddles ages in no (wo)man’s land, inviting us to stand in limbo beside her, no longer who and what we were and not yet who we are becoming. This is the first act of courage she demands: to embrace the darkness of the unknowable whilst standing firm and sure that the sacred will always prevail and our very essence along with it. All else, she reminds us, may become as dust, dispersed on the winds of change.

Happy Birthday Pisces!!

Happy Birthday Pisces!!

posted by Lynn Hayes

Website: Astrodynamics! with Lynn Hayes


Somehow over the weekend I missed the fact that the Sun entered Pisces on Sunday!

Pisces is the most watery of the water signs, and the last of the twelve zodiac signs. Like a drop of water falling into a river that ultimately flows into the deepest ocean, Pisces seeks to merge into an experience of something greater and more divine, an experience that is beyond this world.

Like Aquarius, Pisces has two rulers which gives it’s nature a greater complexity. Neptune is known as the “modern ruler” of Pisces. Before Neptune was discovered, Jupiter ruled Pisces and is therefore called its “ancient ruler.” Jupiter expands and Neptune submerges, and the nature of Pisces is a combination of the two. Pisces is the chameleon, the shape shifter. There is incredible creativity bestowed by Pisces and other strong Neptune influences, along with a desire to fully experience the divine as we seek to dissolve the boundaries of conventional and ordinary reality. This creativity can sometimes take the form of daydreaming and an easy fall into dramas of illusion.

Pisces is a “mutable” sign, lending flexibility and adapatibility to the personality. Without the inclusion of more fiery influences in the personality, Pisces can suppress one’s physical vitality and drive. The extreme empathy of the Piscean personality offers psychic ability, but can also make it difficult to distinguish between one’s own feelings and those of others.

The ultimate quest of Pisces is to transcend the shackles of ordinary reality and experience the divine while keeping two feet firmly planted on Planet Earth. Please bear in mind that an individual’s astrological makeup is far more than their Sun sign, and that the Pisces influence is shared not only by those with a Pisces Sun but also among those with other planets in Pisces or strong Neptune connections in their chart.

Your Daily Cosmic Calendar for Thursday, Feb. 19th

Change and excitement are blended themes over the next 72 to 96 hours — although you will have to contend with two long void lunar uncertainty zones, each one lasting for around 24 hours. It is wise to write down morning dreams and visions in a special notebook as the Moon forms its monthly conjunction with Neptune in Pisces (2:49AM). You also have a capacity to size up important business matters — thanks to the development of a supportive, 60-degree alliance between Mercury and Saturn (5:07AM). Comfort and healing want to go hand-in-hand — courtesy of another 60-degree liaison between Ceres and Chiron (10:27AM). The lunar limbo-factor clocks in at 3:03PM (during a seemingly routine 60-degree rapport between the Moon in Pisces and Pluto in Capricorn) as the Moon enters a void cycle that lasts until 3:14PM tomorrow. This 24+ hour lunar meandering time-period includes the powerhouse of Mars entering its own sign of fiery Aries (4:12PM today) — the red planet’s first entry into the beginning of the zodiac in approximately 2 years. Mars will be in Aries until March 31, but some of its independent flare and over-the-top zeal may be muted because this planetary-zodiacal commingling began during a void lunar cycle in watery Pisces. Feelings of deja vu and reflecting about life-after-death, reincarnation, telepathy and alternative medical therapies are par for the course as the Moon unites with Chiron (5:25PM) while Venus parallels Chiron (7:33PM). Strive to keep sound communications going with loved ones later on when Mercury in Aquarius forms a polarity to Juno in Leo (9:30PM). [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Standard Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.]

Calendar of the Sun for Thursday, February 19th

Calendar of the Sun
19 Solmonath

Day of the Fish: Beginning of Pisces

Colors: Deep ocean blues and blue-greens
Element: Water
Altar: Set with cloths of sea colors, shells, pearls, the figures of fishes, a chalice of water, rolls of bandages, a pot of salve, and a scrying ball.
Offerings: Shells. Salt water. Aid and give help unselfishly to someone in need, especially someone whom you feel is not deserving of it.
Daily Meal: Fish. Seafood. Seaweed.

Invocation to Pisces

Glimmer in the deepest waters,
Dweller in water salt as tears,
Sacrificed and sacrificing,
Neptune’s elusive child
Bathed in obscuring mystery,
Whose gift is Faith,
Bless us with the ability
To step beyond ourselves
And learn compassion
For all beings.
By the power of all believing,
You challenge us
To remember always
That we are part of a destiny
Much greater than ourselves,
One in the Many
And Many in the One.
May we go forth
Always in hope.

Born of water, cleansing, powerful, flowing, healing, we are….

(Let one who is chosen to do the work of the ritual walk about with the chalice of water and bless each person on the head with the waters of Pisces. Then let them walk about with the pot of salve and ask, “Dost thy heart need healing?” If the answer is no, let them bow to each other, and the bearer say, “Then have thou compassion for those who do.” If the answer is yes, s/he will rub a bit of the salve on the person’s heart chakra, and say, “By the grace of the Gods, may thou be healed.” Then the water is poured out as a libation.)

Your Daily Planet Tracker: Mars In Pisces, Now Until Feb. 19th

Planet Tracker

Mars in Pisces

Now to Feb 19, 2015

From The Staff at


Assertive Mars, the warrior, can seem out of place in watery Pisces, a sign of diffusion. It may be difficult to focus one’s initiative during this time, particularly if inspiration is lacking. Pisces requires a cause or greater purpose to be fully motivated.

When imagination and faith are engaged, Mars in Pisces works wonderfully to combine dynamism and compassion. It is able to push gently, express itself creatively and fight for a higher purpose. Sometimes, though, this combination manifests as blind lashing out or indiscriminate anger. Watch where your passions take you now. There are beautiful and noble worlds in which to engage in the battle, but it can be easy to flail about without a clear target in sight.

Universal Pisces often touches the artistic within us. This is because creative forms of expression can be so much richer than ordinary communication. Mars’ placement here is a reminder that we all need channels to take us beyond the boundaries of our mundane perspectives.

Writers born with Mars in Pisces include Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Camille Paglia, Hermann Hesse, Spalding Gray and Carrie Fisher. Musicians Art Tatum, Elton John, Miles Davis, Johnny Cash and Eric Clapton were also born with this placement.

Jackie Robinson was a Mars in Pisces who had to rein in his natural aggression to serve a vital cause: desegregating baseball. Joe Montana’s purpose was less noble, but revealed an intuitive athletic genius that almost always hit the mark.

Acting is a wonderful field for Mars in Pisces people. It opens a world of imagination and fantasy played in by Shirley Temple Black, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Alan Alda, Michelle Pfeiffer and Glenn Close, among others. Mars in Pisces actress Marilyn Monroe fulfilled the Piscean extremes of goddess and victim.

Ralph Nader is a Mars in Pisces individual who has battled for the underdog. Machiavelli’s subtle ways of power and manipulation were considerably less noble.

We find illusion-maker David Copperfield and photographer Ansel Adams in this group, as well as perhaps the greatest genius of the last 1000 years: Michelangelo. When action (Mars) is connected to universal forces, it is clear that there are no limits to human creativity. is a Daily Insight Group site

Scanning the Stars: Mars Moves Into Pisces

Mars Moves Into Pisces

From the Psychic Advisors at Keen, Your Personal Advisor

Mars moves into Pisces where it will stay until February 19th.  Under this influence you could be more sensitive than you realize, and you’ll probably notice that your physical energy has higher peaks and lower valleys than usual. Napping will be a very good thing for you to do when you’re tired; you may need more sleep than you normally do too. It will be important that you honor your body in that regard by resting when you need it and taking regular breaks.

Assertion may be a real issue for you at this time. You will probably be better at acting on behalf of others than for your own benefit. If you don’t feel comfortable expressing yourself forcefully, that energy can easily turn into passive-aggressive behavior, something that you must be aware of at this time. It will be far too easy for you to wage a cold war instead of simply expressing your anger or other strong emotions if you don’t feel comfortable with your emotions or problems during this period.

It will also be very tempting to try to escape those issues by way of drugs, alcohol, or any other addictive and damaging behavior. If you find yourself needing a break from everyday life, the challenge will be to find ways to indulge these parts of yourself safely during this transit.

Your Love Horoscopes for Tuesday, February 3rd


Your Love Horoscopes for Tuesday, February 3rd

Aries Horoscope
(Mar 21 – Apr 19)
Just a day after Venus and Neptune’s alignment in a nostalgic part of your chart whipped up a potent cocktail of romantic nostalgia and fantasy, the timing of the Moon’s return to your romantic sector couldn’t be better. In the lead up to tomorrow’s Full Moon the doors to the past and second chances are being flung wide open.


Taurus Horoscope
(Apr 20 – May 20)
With so much focus on your relationships over the last few years you’re ready for some romance this year and that’s exactly what the love gods have on the menu. While you’ll have to wait until March for Venus, planet of love to return to your sign and until July for your luckiest year for love in over a decade to kick off, already there’s a chance and a need to make your life as love friendly as possible.


Gemini Horoscope
(May 21 – Jun 20)
Regardless of what happens next the Moon’s return to your communication sector today was always going to be an opportunity to give your emotional responses a voice and your relationships were always going to benefit. But due to become a Full Moon by tomorrow this is a chance to get the ball rolling on what is the potential for a communication and/or relationship breakthrough


Cancer Horoscope
(Jun 21 – Jul 22)
While the Moon’s departure from your sign will take away any personal and/or relationship tension over the last few days, chances are it’s left you with a much better sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. This has been a reminder that in order to be true to your relationships you’ve first got to be true to yourself.


Leo Horoscope
(Jul 23 – Aug 22)
Even before tomorrow’s Full Moon has a chance to bring any personal and/or relationship tensions to a head, the Moon’s return to your sign today and opposition with Mercury in your relationship sector is set to get the ball rolling. While you’ve got a fairly bumpy 5 days in front of you, you’ve also got the potential for a communication and/or relationship breakthrough.


Virgo Horoscope
(Aug 23 – Sep 22)
As Venus and Mars spend their first full week together in your relationship sector for nearly 2 years, they’re both emerging from alignments that over the last few days have created an opportunity for healing and to recapture some of that old magic. For now it’s about fighting for a sense of what’s possible, with the reality checks needing to wait for another time.


Libra Horoscope
(Sep 23 – Oct 22)
Now in his final 10 days in retrograde motion in your romantic sector and holding the door open to second chances, a bit of pressure from the Moon today will do you and Mercury good, especially as any emotional responses come with a chance to give your heart, the past and unsaid words a voice.


Scorpio Horoscope
(Oct 23 – Nov 21)
Your challenge today is holding onto a sense of romantic fantasy and escapism that came to a head yesterday as the professional clouds begin rolling in. Yet while this might normally be a problem with Venus and Mars, the planets of love and passion spending their first full week together in your romantic sector in 2 years, the professional gods will have a real fight on their hands.


Sagittarius Horoscope
(Nov 22 – Dec 21)
With a sense of romantic anticipation already building ahead of Venus and Mars’ return to your romantic sector this month, the Moon’s return to an adventurous part of your chart ahead of tomorrow’s Full Moon is both a chance to get excited about the journey and to start challenging some of your excuses.


Capricorn Horoscope
(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
As the Moon leaves your relationship sector this will see any personal and/or relationship tension triggered over the last few days defuse, with this you’ll also lose a real opportunity to give your relationships a voice. This is an opportunity that needs to be seized, using any buttons that have been pushed over recent days as an opportunity for a communication and/or relationship breakthrough.


Aquarius Horoscope
(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Today marks the start of what could be a trying few days on the relationship front, with the Moon’s return to your relationship sector not only due to culminate in a Full Moon tomorrow, but just as tensions are already rising. Yet rather than something to fear and especially not if you’re committed to ensuring the communication lines are open, this is an opportunity for a communication and/or relationship breakthrough.


Pisces Horoscope
(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
As the Moon’s monthly visit to your romantic sector wraps up yesterday’s alignment between Venus and dreamy Neptune also ends, with your challenge being to hold onto the romantic sentiment and escapism created over the last few days. For it’s today that life’s realities start demanding your attention, with a need to fight to ensure they’re not entirely successful.
