Pisces - The 12 Sided Water Crystal
I was watching a Carl Jung documentary before and he was talking about the ‘collective unconscious’, it made me think of Pisces -as the twelfth sign of the zodiac, Pisces completes the sun sign cycle. It is said that in its journey around the zodiac, the Sun picks up the salient characteristic of each sign it travels through. By the time it reaches Pisces, the Sun has quite the collection of human stories and qualities in all hues of the rainbow blended throughout their personality. As a Water sign, Pisces is an inherent link to our collective unconscious and their mutable modality instils their tremendous flexibility and capacity for empathy. The archetype of Pisces represents the fusion of the soul and form, and bound by the silver cord, the two 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.
Pisces is associated with the healer, the martyr, the redemption and the saviour. As the end of the soul’s journey, the diamond of Pisces stores the sparkle of every sign within them. Carrying the weight of the collective unconscious, these individuals tend to be very sensitive to emotional undercurrents and have perceptions that border on psychic. As they see other people in pain, the Piscean feels emotionally aligned and ill at ease, and in reverse, will feel instantly uplifted around a joyful environment. Pisceans involuntarily share all the world’s sufferance along with their pleasure, installing an incredible capacity for solicitude. It is common for these individuals to become confused with their own feelings, and what are those of their company. Often time, the Piscean can seem as though they are miles away, pulled into the secret and mystical worlds of their dreamy unconscious.
The mutable fluidity found in these natives instils their chameleon quality and incredible skills of adaptability. Pisces want to be all things to all people, and they carry the particles of all of these people in them. The paradoxical nature of this sign can be dispersed throughout the highly evolved Piscean Albert Einstein to the alcohol abuser waiting outside the rehab. Neptunian fog can impair clarity and cause these natives to either drown in the unconscious waters or find the jewels of the journey in merging meaning with matter. The planet of Neptune dissolves all the boundaries of the physical and the unconscious, and it is the duty of the Piscean to bring these worlds together.
Pisces is an incredibly hard sign to pin down. They tend to be quite unpredictable and ecletic. Their fluid and sensitive temperament is mediumistic and the higher evolved Pisces is the true mystic with an inner world of riches. Pisces is the watercolour picture, one that cannot be defined as each colour blends into the next, as different company brings out unique shades of hues and shades, the sparkling artwork of Pisces that we enjoy is the heavenly gift for the rest of the zodiac.
