Pisces Decan 1 ~ General Meaning

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 anaesthetizing themselves there can be problems with alcohol or drug abuse.

8 Of CupsLike 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.

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!’.

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. The need to keep one’s feet on the ground while one’s head in the clouds” [5]
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.” [5]
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] 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.

  1. February 19th Pisces here … this resonated profoundly and began to shed tears, for some deep reason that I couldn’t quite grasp. I don’t have the energy right now to go on in detail of how this reached me, but my life is nothing but pure magic… in the light and in the darkest of dark.

  2. Both my moon and ascendent is in decan 1, my sun is decan 2 in Sagittarius. I find it interesting that in my sun it’s known as the 13th fairy and here it mentions fairytales.

    Now for Sag decan 2 it mentioned emphasis on the moon (could that mean that I exhibit a Sagittarius with more Pisces qualities?

    (For info sun, mercury, Uranus and neptune are in Sagittarius, venus in cap, Mars in virgo, jupiter in scorpio, saturn and Pluto in libra)

    I know I can see the mutable qualities very well. But even with having 4 planets in Sagittarius I don’t act like what one might expect. Could that be due to the above question?

  3. Bam. You nailed it. This was the crush of my life. Best 1 month fling I ever had. Best sex I ever had. Artist, dreamer, fairy, mind controller. *poof* Disappeared out of thin air (twice!!), and yet I still crave him. Ugh.

    Pisces Decan 1 you are a sexy, sexy enigma.

  4. A perfect description a Pisces Decan 1…..my Sun and Mercury conjunction sits here, and I’m a poet, witch, dreamer, psychic and fairytale-writer. The comments on Formalhout and Mercury are fascinating though, because I’m also an academic, researcher, historian and sceptic.
    I do have trouble motivating myself into action sometimes- making those dreams come true- but luckily my Piscean Mercury and Sun are in some energetic sextiles with Mars, and also form the side of an awesome Grand Trine kite with Pluto, Lilith and Neptune- and it perfectly reflects my love of writing and researching about magic, psychology, art and love….

  5. Thank you Marina for balancing all the negatives written about Pisces Sun and Mercury in Decan 1. I recognise aspects of myself in your sensitive evocations of us fishes and its so nourishing to see the positive side. I am a photographer and painter with a passion for the Tibetans and Tibetan culture, and a Sufi Master to guide me – so your description fits well. I definitely still (at 63) am shocked at how venal and unkind people can be, and still find it surprising and painful. Thank heavens for Mars in Scorpio and Jupiter in Aries or I think I’d float right off the planet!!!!!

    1. Have my Mercury Here at 1*, I have experienced all of the above. Loss, childhood slander and childhood imprsionment, which lead to a short adult imprisonment- possible 2 year though, was SCARY. because they said I did not finish the childhood requirements. Which were not true anyway. But I think that also has to do with my Leo Ascendant,Cancer 12th / Unpredictable Uranus Cusp In the 7th house of litigation. Confusion abounded for all my childhood cases. Places of Institution just seem to be a lot of times where I end up, and ironically where a lot of people need someone like me. It was traumatic as a child, and I believe if I had my Mercury in another less go with the flow place, I would have stood up for myself, for the slander I got in childhood. But how many 14 year old kids given up to the State know how to to do that. Not many adults do,

      But since Mercury rules skin, I get a lot of complements on it and having a photogenic camera look. I do have my “jazz cigg moments” too. & Its true, I just don’t belong stocking or counting mundane things. Not saying thats not beautiful work, because it is. But my Mercury needs to be undefined. Its funny though, with this placement, most of the time it silences you if you try and do small talk. Some days I just dont even try, some people will try and get me to say funny information or for the day with a joke and I try back, and I just can’t, there like o ok sorry Im like ugh Never mind , My Mercur’s In Pisces. To myself of course as I leave the store. LOL

    2. Just another sidenote I forgot, since My Mercury is in Pisces. LOL, is were good at communicating through mediums, like internet or music or text or symbols. But like on the spot communication is hard for me to do, unless its like for humanity and im in a group and know I have to get it out. Then Im pretty good. But just on the spot how ya doing or people that talk at me, like Mercury In fire signs, Especially Aires lol they will have to repeat because it takes me a minute to come back to earth to hear what there saying. But Mercury Airens scare the bejezuz out of my Placement sometimes though, they get right in your face and expect a immediate answer/ hate repeating themselves. But there funny because they say the things Pisces Mercury’s are also thinking but would never say to someones face. lol

    3. With Mercury in Pisces 3 entries is not soo bad is it? The downside of having nice skin, in Pisces, is hyper-senisitive skin, in Pisces. The cold feels especially brutal on me, while Leo Seasoned Sun at a beach gives me the enthusiasm of a baked fish. My eyes and the skin on them, water at the slightest 50 degree or below breeze!?! Thank You Mercury Pisces gods for this one. People always ask why i’m crying in stores or school because one yawn makes me look like I just watched an American Politician tell the truth.

      Bug bites seem to be are all the rage, and tend to stay with me longer than other people. If Mercury rules all things with skin, then this explains why, I do not have drug or drinking issues, with Mercury here -my skin the skin of my nose skin of everything in fact seems to absorb and detect very easy. Its a great litmus test for my environment. Want to know if its in your house? Ask a Mercury Pisceans skin, it will tell you. I half to half dose everything in fact.
