Pisces purpose in life involves understanding the needs of others, being tolerant, empathetic, and loving unconditionally. Although it is thought that Pisces may have its fair share of suffering, sadness and loss in order to develop compassion for others and the ability to feel what another feels.The person is getting in touch with the romantic dreamer within and creating something inspiring through the mystic arts, poetry, music, literary work, charity, spirituality, and making intuitive leaps in maths and science.
Pisces is the sign of the true mystic, drawn to all mysteries and will often drift off into their limitless imagination. Art and magic come alive in a Pisceans world, and even the more practical areas of life are coloured with more beauty, depth and inspiration. Once Pisces has poured their heart and soul into something, another powerful creative force swims around inside the individual searching for expression. This undeniable part of their inner-world is filled with an energy that can be creative or destructive, sometimes both.
No career will feel satisfying for Pisces, unless they can feel something on an inner level, as there is always a daimon within that is thought to be a divine, mediating, spiritual power pushing the individual towards a powerful fate. Pisces is haunted throughout life with a vision of ideal beauty, and longings that demand release. It is the reason such an individual becomes dissatisfied with earthly realities and limiting circumstances. They cannot betray this powerful voice of intuition as it demands to be felt and expressed.
Pisces is often called weak-willed, but the fishes are overpowered enormously by this other side, possessing an insatiable appetite for anything that will lift the individual out of the mundane world. Pisces is a dual sign and the pull between heaven and earth and readily identifying with everybody makes it almost – too easy- to become one of society’s victims.
Pisces are somewhat dream-catchers, fishermen of the unconscious and devotees of the spirit world. And they are developing their psychic gifts to the fullest. Often a crisis in the life of Pisces could involve the fish-like myth of being dismembered and emerging cleansed, healed and possessing gifts of wisdom and healing. In mythology the Fish swallow up and spit out heroes in a phase of purification (rebirth). Out of all the zodiacal signs, it is Pisces that is considered to have retained some memory of heaven and are in many ways still bound to paradise, but they will have an aversion to all the practical things on earth. A Piscean is forever losing their keys, forgetting to pay bills, and probably losing their mind in the process. When such spaciness, evasiveness and escapism prevails it is often like the plague for such types, taking so many Pisceans out of the real-world.
Pisces is close to everything symbolic of the ocean, and this includes the great lows and highs of their emotions. The irrationality of the unconscious drives some Pisceans to madness. Water signs are also all about how something feels, and whether or not it stirs them underneath and so they have the ability to infuse everyday life with more compassion, artistry and sensitivity, making it more bearable for everybody else. Pisces is also a sign of service and many involve themselves in something that benefits others. In this lifetime, Pisces has been given the key to all of enigmas, and knowledge that extends into the great vastness of the sea, its depths and creative gifts. Pisces also seeks to salvage what has been lost and reach a greater understanding.
The individual is psychologically bringing forth the sea, and they often seem an odd fit for a world focused on materialism – where dreams and intuition are not exactly talents one puts on their resume. Pisces is tied to the spiritual world, whether they like it or not. It’s hard at times to be a Pisces and to be who they are entirely, and the individual constantly plays with those secret yearnings of the soul looking to be answered.
Now, which way is the ocean?
