Chasing Tails

Diving into the deep.

Pisces, mutable water - the oceanic flux, expanse, immensity of feeling and imaginative stretch.

The heights, the depths, cycling round and round. Ecstatic states; suffering states. The two fish circling, chasing each other’s tails, bound by a cord, forever tied. One fish swims upwards, one downwards, remembering the swelling light as March moves.

The remembering is for some thing held, something completed, we are at the end of the astrological zodiac with Pisces, the circle has been circumnavigated and the remembering of the journey is ripe in the liquid memory realms of the Piscean mind. One fish wants to escape and be free from the wheel; the wheel of fortune, of carnal existence. The other fish is ready to return, to dive down into the cycle once more.

The Crab (Cancer) and Scorpion (Scorpio) - the other water sign creatures have shells, external protection - the fish is buffered by water alone. The skin gleams - the scales quiver, Pisces porosity is ever present, the within and the without mingle in sometimes overwhelming ways. Edges feel illusive enabling flights far into the imaginary, fears, fantasy, the full scope. Pisces’ range is broad and cavernous, and we all have it swirling in our life world somewhere - the beauty of Astrology is in discovering each sign’ realm within us. Where it shows up in our lives will differ, the tidal yank will summon us each to differing degrees; partly due to the planets that harbour there. But these waters are there for everyone, the fishes and their perpetual loop of longing, is likely to be ripe and full now with the sun making its' annual romp through its’ waters.

In the current sky (2021) Neptune continues to journey here, the trident attuned to vast reaches and realms, upping the immensity - in all ways - delusion, dissolving, waters of loss, of grief, of longing could be copious.

The Sun, Venus and Mercury all meet Neptune in March, quite a ricochet of encounters offering a heightening for sonar seeing.

Within oceans of feeling - the fishes can help, their buoyant nimble way to slip stream, letting waters buffet whilst feeling the float is a wisdom to keep us upright and flowing, not sinking.

Thawing from winter, especially this winter - with all the shedding and losses - brings the ever-greater longing for relief, for full light, for full life to fill us, replenish with an all-encompassing bonding that the yearning Pisces knows inside out. In all this there is an exquisite beauty an in-and-of itself tenderness.

Dream well through these days.
