The holiday season this year comes with some stirred up cosmological waters. After a prolonged stay in Aquarius, Mars, the planet that energizes is entering the vast territory of the collective unconscious, the endless and unfathomable ocean of Pisces, the sign of the Fishes.
Pisces is a sign that is most associated with passive, female principle of the the universe that is Yin energy. It is the type of love that is all-encompassing, it is pure forgiveness, gentleness, ethereal beauty, subtlety, deep imagination, psychic phenomenon. People who are born under the influence of this sign have a natural ability to tap into this realm, often to the astonishment and wonder of others.
Back to Mars. Mars motivates in many ways. Sometimes it can just feel like a straightforward burst of energy. A new focal point in which you are ready to place your time and energy. Other times it comes in the form of agitation, unrest, a feeling like you just can’t take it anymore and something needs to change. This is the boiling, roiling, stirring and churning way of the warrior planet.
In Pisces, it is the the ethereal waters of other-worldliness that are being agitated, motivated, energized. In short, the Mystic within is being summoned.
Mars will stay in Pisces until New Years Eve, flavoring the holiday stretch with a sizzle of Yin energy.
There is definitely a je-ne-sais-qoi quality to the next couple of months. Things may pop up that make you open your eyes wider to the greater mysteries of life. The wonder that comes about from the many holiday lights may be of extra sparkle.
Subjective reality is the home of our feelings. With Mars traveling through Pisces, emotions that come with this time of year may feel more overwhelming. One of Pisces biggest challenges is to keep the rivers and tides of emotions flowing healthily.
Pay attention to what is nagging at you or what is merely calling you in the next few months. It is likely tied into a deeper personal connection to the waters above and the waters below. That is, a deeper connection to all that is unknowable, yet worthy of reflection. A grander reality, that is based on a willingness to feel.
