Pisces decan 2 are ruled by Jupiter and the Moon. They are the most slippery of the fishes, now you see them, now you don’t. The Sun slithers through this sultry zone from Feb 28 – Mar 9. This area houses Aquarius’s water, the male watersnake, Eridanus the river, the Phoenix, the Sculptor and the west fish of Pisces. These amphibious creatures are masters of disguise and can blend into any environment effortlessly. Pisces decan 2 is probably the most liquid area of Pisces, which means it also risks being the most toxic.
Victims, Saviours & Redemption
These subjects are supremely absorbent of their environment, so can work positively or negatively. This placing would be great for a spy, but the most criminal and slimy of individuals could turn this great power into something quite nefarious. With Pisces decan 2 the evolutionary state of the soul is paramount, they can absorb toxins just as well as they can absorb love and bliss.
Whatever the choice, they will just suck the juice out of it, so it better be good juice. Sometimes these people just don’t know who they are, so they are prone to being easily moulded and manipulated by those closest to them. Pisces decan 2 should therefore try to associate with the clean living and spiritually aware. Much depends how earthed the rest of the chart is, but keeping in with the right crowd will keep nasty scum from accumulating on this fishes tank!

Sun Pisces 2
According to Austin Coppock, Pisces decan 2 is supposed to do rather well in the material world. The Sun here brings success due to this decan being associated with the tarot card the Nine Of Cups which is commonly known as ‘the wish card’. I think this is due to the solar energy bringing out the best of the creative promise of the decan as a whole. So many classical composers and folk connected with the stars here! We get a great cocktail of the decans rulers blended with the Sun. Jupiter brings growth and abundance, the Moon is fertile and imaginative, while the Sun can cook up both into a well of creativity. Here there is a good balance of matter (mater=moon) and enterprising spirit (Sun/Jupiter.) “The ability to maintain a harmonious relationship between material and spiritual layers of life is the art of following the tao itself…. Indeed several traditional images (of this decan), suggest that the material riches are the product of spiritual labor” .
The picatrix for Pisces 2 shows an inverted figure rather like the Tarot’s hanged man, so that “the material and spiritual priorities that have been inverted, and that the figure is grounded in the invisible, rather than upon the earth. Yet the inverted figure offers sustenance, proving that this strange act is not futile.”  Again the theme repeats of self-sacrifice and of martyrdom that come with the Jesus archetype so strong in the decan. The natives will sacrifice themselves for their art or for a good cause. But women in particular need to make sure they don’t totally devote themselves to the man (Sun) in their life and need to own the talents promised in this decan.
