It's Pisces season and mercury is in retrograde as well! The perfect time for a self-inventory and some reflection. Pisces are sensitive souls. They are the introspective dreamers of the zodiac. They tend to have a compassionate heart for others who are struggling, whether it be fellow humans, or furry friends. They are a water sign that feels at peace, and at home by the water. My sun sign is not Pisces but my moon sign (which governs the emotions) is Pisces. My happy place is either in, or by the water. Fun fact. I was told that when I was a toddler that I instinctively knew how to swim underwater BEFORE I knew how to swim above it! I swam underwater from one parent to the other. Yup, I did the man from Atlantis move naturally it seems. It must have been the Pisces moon in me. 😉
I have created two pieces in my zodiac collection for Pisces that feature the Pisces symbol and a gemstone that resonates strongly with this sign. Pisces is represented by a symbol of two fish that are swimming in opposite directions. This implies a duality about the Pisces nature, much like the dual nature of Gemini that is represented by the symbol of the twins. I have heard it said that the fish swimming in opposite directions suggests the potential for Pisces to evolve and achieve great heights in whatever their field of interest is (i.e. Albert Einstein was a Piscean genius) OR that they could sink to the depths of despair and succumb to internal doubts or addictions. By no means do ALL Pisceans fall into either one or the other of these two scenarios. It simply shows the wide range of their potential. I have mentioned before that there are many variables in someone’s birth chart. How these variables interact overall influences the degree to which qualities are manifested. I outline below some of the more common characteristics associated with Pisces.
- Element: Water
- Symbol: Two Fish - Swimming in opposite directions.
- Modality: Mutable
- Very sensitive to feelings, environments, “vibes”
- Imaginative dreamer, loves fantasy, at times escapist tendencies.
- Artistically inclined. Lover of all things that inspire their heart and soul.
- Intuitive, empath, psychic tendencies
- Interest in mysteries, metaphysical subjects
- Romantic, gentle souls
Gemstones for Pisces
Some gemstones that have a strong resonance with Pisces are aquamarine, amethyst, turquoise, fluorite, ocean jasper, blue lace agate, jade, peridot, sunstone, sapphire, labradorite, amber, moonstone, ametrine, chrysoprase, calcite, smithsonite etc.
I chose aquamarine as the main gemstone to work with for my Pisces pieces. I outline below the energetic properties of aquamarine, and the aquamarine pieces that are part of the collection.
Aquamarine - This gemstone is a serene but powerful beauty! It is a stone of the water element. It assists with getting in touch with your intuition. It has a calming and soothing effect on the emotions. It brings courage to speak one’s truth. It is useful for letting go of difficult emotions and helps to bring closure on all levels.
It has been said that aquamarine was believed to be the treasure of mermaids and was used by sailors as a talisman for good luck and protection. Today it is thought of as an excellent crystal to wear while travelling long distances by sea, air, or road.
The following quote by Elizabeth Taylor illustrates the Piscean sentiment and their journey very well. The ups and downs, the problems and stress, along with all the happiness, have given me optimism and hope because I am living proof of survival.” Elizabeth Taylor.
For many Pisceans, the road isn’t always easy because they FEEL so much and internalize a lot of their emotions. It can take a great deal of effort to dredge through accumulated sludge that has piled up! The good news is that when they get through their struggles, their compassionate nature makes them even MORE willing to share what they have learned and overcome with others. They really do embody the desire to live in a peaceful world that is filled with love and hope for all.
