Pisces Decan 2 ~ General Meaning
Pisces decan 2 are ruled by Jupiter and the Moon (Cancer triplicity). They are the most slippery of the fishes, now you see them, now you don’t. The Sun slithers through this sultry zone from March 1 –10. 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. 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.
Victim/Saviour & Resurrection
Sometimes these people just don’t know who they are, so they are prone to be easily molded and manipulated by those closest to them. Pisces decan 2 should, therefore, try to associate with the clean living and spiritually aware. Much depends on 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!
The tarot cars associated with this decan is the nine of cups. In terms of karma “The Nine of Cups can symbolically represent being rewarded after a period of hard work and effort. Whatever you have been working on has come to successful fruition and you can sit back now and take all the praise and applause you have rightfully earned. People now see you in a different light and many will be envious of not only your abilities and skills but also because of the wonderful inner-light that glows in and around you.” ~Teachmetarot. So like the phoenix that resides in this decan, there is the potential for redemption and resurrection once you have served your penance. With Achernar being such a religious card, one can see the potential of suffering in early life, possibly through over-indulgence or addiction. Repenting and living a simpler life, devoted to good works could bring one spiritual riches in later life…

Sun Pisces 2
Achernar 15º ~ ” To deal with, or live in, a state of crisis, to identify oneself with a crisis. To be in a rapidly changing situation requiring crisis management skills.”  Ankaa 15º ~ “One who can remake themselves, the ability to rebuild a life. To be identified with a transcending idea.” 
According to Austin Coppock Sun decan 2 is supposed to do rather well in the material world and bring 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 here. So many classical composers and folk connected with the stars here! We get a great cocktail of the decan 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 labour” .
The Picatrix image 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 comes 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.
