Pisces Decan 1 ~ Feb 20 to 28


Pisces decan 1 are ruled by Saturn and Jupiter (Pisces triplicity). The sun glides like a gondola through this decan from February 19 – 29. It’s easy to get very enchanted by this otherworldly zone of Aquarius, Pegasus, the Swan, the Southern fish and the Sculptor. It is the home of dreamy Fomalhaut, the rose coloured twinkle in the eye star of the southern fish. It is also a very psychic area of the cosmos with six prophetic stars residing here.

*Magnitude & star position for year 2000

This zone is a bohemian artists dream, where one can catch the muses and write inspiring music, art and poetry. Here one can absorb, blend into the landscape and be receptive to the flow of inspiration from the collective.

Muses, Fairytales & The Bohemian Dream

But oh so sensitive, there can be the problem of feeling other peoples pain. Pisces decan 1 are great empaths, but prone to self-medication when they take on too much of other peoples woes. In anaesthetising themselves there can be problems with alcohol or drug abuse.

Like the preceding decan, Aquarius 3. these subjects are visionaries. However in dreamy Pisces, they less likely to take steps to make these visions reality. Very often Pisces decan 1 thinks the mirages in their life actually are real. There are very few beastly stars in Pisces decan 1.

Fomalhaut’s Gabriel is the only human Archangel (Compared to Regulus, Antares and Aldebaran the other archangel stars).The animals in this constellation are hardly wild and all the stars on them are placed above the waist. So then there is something very chaste about Pisces decan 1, but that doesn’t stop them from being the worlds worst flirts.

Look, don’t touch, for these subjects turn unrequited love into an art form. Pisces decan 1 will tease you until you are half insane and then disappear leaving just a puff of fairy dust. This dust will stain your clothes and seep into everything you own… They certainly leave an impression, even if it’s just a stubborn red wine stain on your carpet. In the worst cases, like their modern ruler Neptune, Pisces decan 1 are often more successful at serenading love than actually making love.

Voice Of A Siren

Pisces decan 1 has the voice of a siren and is an ace seducer, they can charm you into doing anything for them which is why they don’t often need regular jobs. These poets always find a willing benefactor with a spare sofa, since their musical and artistic talents can be so seductive. Their partners/friends gush how they just need someone to give them a break, so it would be a real waste to have them stacking shelves in a supermarket.

Once these artistes come out of their ‘jazz cigarette’ haze and put their notes on paper they can do very well commercially. So Pisces decan 1 really do need an agent, benefactor or partner with business savvy and common sense to make their executive decisions for them.

Very often these subjects get so enraptured with the creative process that they can float cluelessly into the teeth of a great white. In their fairy tale haze, Pisces decan 1 have faith that everything is good in the world, but often feel incredibly hurt and let down when they find out not everyone is Snow White.

8 Of Cups

The tarot card associated with this decan is the 8 of cups “Much inner and outer work needs to be done. You might feel the need to withdraw from the rat race to focus on what is of true worth and to hear your inner voice.  The Eight of Cups does not imply that your Personal Journey will be easy as many superficial and shallow layers will have to be peeled away before you will find your Personal Truth and Spiritual Core.” ~ teachmetarot .

It is clear that this decan does not focus on the rat race of the business world, rejecting material gain. Karmically this decan signifies turning your back on old behaviour patterns where you have stayed too long in a situation or relationship that was unfulfilling. This lifetime is a wakeup call, and you may have one very draining partner, with whom you suffered so much that you decide once and for all, ‘never again!’.

Pisces Decan 1 Fixed Star Meanings *

Enif 1º is found in Pegasus’s nose and has its head firmly stuck in the clouds. Robson says the constellation as a whole “gives ambition, vanity, intuition, enthusiasm, caprice and bad judgment.” Noonan says “The constellation portends events concerning ships and the ocean and also changes in the weather. In medieval times it was said to indicate vain individuals with a great deal of ambition, but with very poor judgment.” For Enif specifically it brings “Danger in battle.” [1] Biham 6º in the head of Pegasus, the other star in this constellation has no specific meaning.

Sun Pisces 1

Sadalmelik 3º ~ “Occult interests, prominence in occultism, gain through companies.” [2] “An optimistic attitude.To be a good networker; to be seen as a hub of information or social contacts.” [5]
Fomalhaut 4º ~ “Dissipated, easily influenced by low companions, gain through inheritance but unproductive of good, may suffer for some crime committed, danger of bites from venomous creatures.” [3] “The artist, the idealist, the charismatic person; to be vulnerable to hubris.

Skat 8º ~ “Sensitive, emotional, psychic, criticism and persecution through mediumship, but help from friends.” [6]

As we can see there are certainly some illustrious folk here. Austin Coppock compares this decan to a Labyrinth, he acknowledges that this is the zone of  ‘wanderers seekers and poets’ but also that they “have a penchant for getting trapped in unpleasant fairy tails, narrative loops they refuse to break free of ” [7]

Pisces Mugs

You can really see the very light and very dark sides of Fomalhaut coming out through here as their creative solar flare throws a very long black shadow. Saturn and Jupiter both ruling this decan though, also symbolise the internal battle between god and the devil.

Those who succeed in slaying the demons lurking inside their misty Labyrinth can do very well. Sometimes they make a career out of their demon-slaying. This decan is also very heavily involved with the occult, but this doesn’t always mean that these folk dabble in mysticism. Sometimes they just like to keep themselves private, have a very rich inner world and a fascination with other dimensions.

SADALMELIK 3º ~ “Ecclesiastical success, occult interests, criticized, trouble through enemies, loss through lawsuits.” [2] “To have inspirational breakthroughs that can solve old problems. To be able to think outside of a situation and see it from a different point of view. Acting with the establishment’s support” [5] FOMALHAUT 4º ~ “Sympathetic, charitable, honors in the Church, Freemasonry or secret societies, many voyages.” [3]” Charismatic, or to have a philosophical cause and love of the classics. A love of travel and unusual places. A grand far-reaching vision is put forward.” [5] DENEB AGIDE 5º ~ The desire to help others through education. Seeking to improve the spiritual or physical lives of people. The lawyer or teacher who wants to lead by example. The reformer gains ground.” [5] SKAT 8º ~ “Philosophical occult or religious mind, social success, prominent in Freemasonry” [6]

Jupiter here is at its most artistic and poetic, but in my research, the outstanding occupation seems to be that of astrology. Jupiter was a sky god, after all. Religion and astrology are closely linked, and the fixed stars confirm there is ecclesiastical success which I would read as fame as an astrologer also. The secret societies connection is interesting; it seems like spirituality is more esoteric and less of the mainstream dogma of the traditional religions.
