Pisces Decan 3 are ruled by Mars This is the zone of the impossible, for here we have aeronautical fishes! The sun flies through this decan from March 11 – 20. This zone is totally dominated by the visionary, high-flying, mythical horse Pegasus, with a lizard, a swan and a star measurer. We get the feeling that this Piscean water is simmering, about to boil over as it makes its way to the new life born on the spring equinox at 0º Aries. This zone is bursting with anticipation for the future and impatient because its like these subjects have been cocooned for so long.
Pisces decan 3 can make calamitous mistakes by over-reaching themselves. These eager foals need to remember that half-baked ideas do not go down well, and hold back until their plans are fully developed. The later end of the decan, especially those on the anaretic 29º are natural daredevils and aim high in all things. They are prone to accidents due to their impulsive natures, but are very “gung ho” about it and get back in the saddle as soon as they can.
Daring Visionaries & Star Measurers
These fishes are often confused as to why they are such hotheads when the usual descriptions of Pisces are so laid back and lanquid. Not so with decan 3! They retain the wonderful Piscean imagination, mysticism, musical talent and psychic ability, but they are more likely to put these talents to use because of their great desire to see their name in starry lights. They are ambitious visionaries and will not stop until they see their dreams materialise. The biggest problem with this decan is over-reaching themselves and the danger of burn out.
With the star measurer here these subjects are naturally fascinated by the cosmos, meta-physics and what makes the universe tick. They can also simply be very enamoured by stardom. Some just crave fame for fames sake, because they desperately want to be somebody. Those who don’t have the necessary talent become eternal Cinderella’s, convinced that a handsome prince is on his way to whisk them away from their drudgery and put them on the throne they deserve. Their imagination does see the fairytale in everyday life and even if things are quite bleak, they are always craning their neck above the “prison bars” of reality smiling at their rainbow future that will surely come. Yes, they can see it, it’s totally real to them, and some with very strong powers of visualisation can indeed make it happen, somehow, somewhere…

*Star positions for the year 2000.
The potent mind-power comes from Markab the alpha star in the wing of Pegasus which “is said to influence above all the spiritual and mental nature, to give a good head for figures, intellectual alertness, mental powers in general and last but not least, the ability to further propaganda activity, if at the same time relevant aspects are also present.” The ability to put a positive spin on things can come in useful and these people can make career out of it working in glamour industries such as fashion, film and advertising. In Vedic astrology the 24th nakshatra where this star resides is called “The Former beautiful”. So Pisces decan 3 can have beauty physically or they will be someone who can make things appear beautiful through art or design. But they are no bimbos’ remember Pegasus is the intellectual. The fact their minds are so busy, might be the reason they are so accident prone. Practical things, like simple walking in a straight line might be a problem… Thankfully this star does give “honor, riches and fortune” , so they can easily pay the bill for repairing all those mangled fetlocks.
The reptilian Lacerta may at first seem at odds sitting in amphibious Pisces, but there is an unlikely connection. Lacerta and Lacrima (latin for tears) have the same latin root. When the lizard sheds its skin it come off in patches looking lacerated and lace like. So these subjects can go through trauma, ball their eyes out and look like a shredded mess, but like the lizard, can magically regenerate its limbs and pull themselves back together.
So although Pisces decan 3 may have accidents, even if they are life threatening ones, they bounce back pretty quickly. These people are the comeback kings and queens. Azelfafage falls in Cygnus the Swan’s tail, the constellation in general “gives a contemplative, dreamy, cultured and adaptable nature. The affections are ill regulated and unsteady, the talents develop late. There is some love of water and swimming and the arts.” I have a theory that tail stars have a volatile edge to them, and tend to lash-out, which fits in with Pegasus’s tendency to reactive impulsively. So the swan here (Unlike Aquarius decan 1) is more likely to spit at you if you upset them, rather than quietly glide away.
Last but not least is the infamous Scheat in the flying horses left leg. Jamie has written about Constellation Pegasus. I think this sums up Scheat very well, he says it “gives ingenuity, a brilliant mind, but also being so far ahead in ones thoughts that others think you are mad. It gives you blind faith and does not make one inclined to look before one leaps. A certain naivety can prove advantageous however, because I think if one did see just how dangerous the path was, one would never take it.” Scheat is also on the verge of becoming “The star of our age” since in 2045 it will reach Aries point and move into the tropical constellation of Aries. I believe Scheat has a lot to do with the advancement of futuristic technology and connecting minds through the internet. Surfing online is very fluid, here barriers come down and there is a transparency between people that we didn’t have 20 years ago. Exposing photos of oneself to the world on social network media is very Pisces decan 3. Scheat knows no bounds, and sees no boundaries. The sky is indeed the limit.
