Pisces decan 1 are ruled by Saturn and Jupiter (Pisces triplicity). The sun glides like a gondola through this decan from February 19 – 28. 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.
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. 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).
Muses, Fairytales & The Bohemian Dream
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… (Continued In eBook.)
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!’… (Continued In eBook.)

Sadalmelek 3º ~“(Heliacal Rising Star) An optimistic life philosophy; the expectation of continuing fruitfulness in one’s life. A confident person with a good network.”  Fomalhaut 4º ~“Great and lasting honours.”  “On the Ascendant and in good aspect, tradition has it that this star will make for ‘fame’ and a name ‘remembered forever’.”  “(Heliacal Rising Star) One’s dreams are the dreams and ideals of humanity; a life spent in admiration of great artistic gifts, or great art or literature.”  Deneb Agide 5º ~ “(Heliacal Rising Star) To seek the hero’s journey, a desire to become aware. To always feel the one can take a deeper step, to feel that one has to walk the less trodden trail. ” 
The ascendant gives the purest expression of the decans energy since no planets will colour its expression. The ascendant is also the relationship axis, so the influences above will play out mostly in how the subject relates to others. With Pisces decan 1 the empathy will be most notable in relationships. There can be the problem of feeling too much of their partner’s pain. It is very important they choose their company carefully as they can take on too much of other people’s woes.
In anaesthetising themselves to the suffering there can be problems with alcohol or drug abuse. The fame promised can only fuel the temptation to substance abuse due to the nature of the industry and the people it attracts. A down-to-earth attitude elsewhere in the chart is needed to avoid becoming swallowed up by the glamour of stardom. Judging by the number of celebrities found here, very few manage to reach the top and stay there to a grand old age without being pulled off course by Piscean deceptions and/or drugs.

Sun Pisces 1
Sadalmelik 3º ~ “Occult interests, prominence in occultism, gain through companies.”  “An optimistic attitude.To be a good networker; to be seen as a hub of information or social contacts.”  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.”  “The artist, the idealist, the charismatic person; to be vulnerable to hubris. The need to keep one’s feet on the ground while one’s head in the clouds”  Deneb Agide 5º ~ “ The desire to explore – places, spiritual beliefs and ideas. The courage to act on one’s beliefs. The shaman, one who touches other worlds.”  Skat 8º ~ “Sensitive, emotional, psychic, criticism and persecution through mediumship, but help from friends.” 
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 ”  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.
