is associated with compassion,
spirituality and unconditional
love. The house holding Pisces in
the natal chart shows an area of life where one might be easily deceived,
prone to escapism, self-sacrificing, where one would show artistry and
imagination, or be especially sensitive to the moods of others. Pisces,
by the planets Jupiter and Neptune,
is an emotional sign with an emphasis on intuitive thought and idealism.
Issues involving the seas, chemicals, charities, institutions of confinement,
plots, and secrets become emphasized during Pisces.
Moon at 29 degrees Pisces 27 minutes:
Moon moves into Aries less than an hour after the New Moon and the Sun
follows 12 hours later. Therefore, we can expect the qualities of Aries
to be just as prevalent as those of Pisces throughout this cycle. Aries
is associated with personal initiative, assertiveness and leadership.
There is an emphasis on excitement and adventure. Issues involving political
or industrial leaders, the military, exploration and feats of courage
become accentuated with the Sun in Aries.

exciting transformation of collective ideals.

throughout this lunation cycle.
Sedgwick gives the following advice about working with this aspect:
the zone in which you perfectly function as a complete freethinking
spirit. No need to be roped in by social rules that fail to fit
your nature. No need to be so rebellious that you become revolting.
Avoid Plutocratic urges and invoke the generosity of Pluto. Reach
out to those who intend to make things better on the planet while
following that path yourself. Those who get shaken out of the Tower
(a la the Tarot) are those clinging to structures, situations and
concepts that do not further [humanitarian goals].
