Dreamy Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac ruled by the graha of expansion, Jupiter. Watery, fathomless and full of life within. It’s two fish are in continual movement, exactly and equally, in opposite directions. Moon in Pisces is an esoteric placement, here you are the emotional, astral, mental and ‘other’ summary of the entire zodiac. You represent the end of a cycle and the learnings hereof. Highly compassionate, highly sensitive, you understand. You may not be so articulate with words but you are deeply aware of your and the other’s emotions all the time.
It can get tiring.
Jupiter loves to continually expand without any limits, he is universal in his benevolence. Moon wants rhythmic movements and is rooted in the homeland tradition. Emotionally caught between these two, you tend to feel pulled in two directions, or at times quite confused. This emotional two-minds causes physical stress. If in this, you get caught in intellectually demanding situations where you are required to impose your personality, the stress can even make you physically sick! You are dual-natured, the two fish in equal and opposite directions. So you can instinctively access emotional context in situations. But to bring your Moon to focus and actually act you need strong benefic influences. Else you will be seen to be wavering, indecisive, vague and worse, tricky and unreliable.
You never rest.
Deep sleep period is comparatively less so you feel tired. The soul can recharge itself only in the Sushupti stage of existence. The dreaming phase is quite happening with astral travel and other similar karmic demands made on your person. You are formidable in the Swapna avastha, you can contact other dimensions, spirits, teachers and also beings who drain your energy. You are kind, selfless, willing to help others. You can sacrifice yourself for others, this mind-set is even more damaging as you give away of your energy. Allowing yourself to be a channel for the energies and emotions of others, you are constantly absorbing energy. If not anchored by benefic planets, you can drown in a sea of emotions.
You are well-off, can earn money through your own efforts. You also give away, donations to temples, philosophical causes, orphanages etc.
You like spending time with children and also the aged. Generous, you give them your time and emotional support. You like the quiet and are unobtrusive and dislike being in the lime-light. You are the silent hard worker in the background. Creative arts, reading books, things that you can do in relative quiet. You don’t just ‘read’, your imagination literally recreates the scene in your mind’s eye. A writer of abstract topics or a painter drawn to nature, you require calm surroundings. Even as an exercise, your favourite would be swimming! If you are put in a room-full of noise, hectic activity and lots of people you get uncomfortable. You are highly sensitive to auras. You are easily disturbed emotionally, you cannot resist pressure. You look for ways to get out of stressful situations. Especially PIsces-Moon women tend to cry silently and they have large liquid attractive eyes!
You are a good teacher, you know instinctively how to encourage your students to think for themselves. You genuinely care about inspiring them. Philosophical or esoteric subjects are your forte. If you are a professional you try to get your juniors interested in the ‘whys’ and ‘hows’ of the practical job. You are a mentor. You appreciate the inner subtle dynamics of practical things and want others to understand them too. Your parenting style is also that of a benevolent teacher. You let your child explore creativity and also gift him with a foundation of spirituality/philosophy. The child shares a strong bond with his Pisces-Moon parent.
There is often a difficult relationship with both the parents. Perhaps parents may have argued in front of your child-self, creating life-time impressions. But there is an emotional rift. You do not get on well with your teachers either, you often know more than they do. You know yourself to be intelligent and worthy but you do not get that validation from these elders. Leo is placed 6th from Pisces, so if you have too many planets placed here you will suffer emotional pain. You tend to be absent-minded about material things but you always remember emotional pain from the past. It hits back with that same intensity. Emotional frustration is possible as you never get satisfaction in your relationships. No other sign can match the emotional depths of Pisces. Also this reliving of past emotions is not good for emotional/ physical health. Sun’s Mahadasha will occur slightly after mid-life and here is a potential period of long-term medical conditions.
You might look healthy and robust but you are not.
Venus Mahadasha is a 20yr long period where you will go through turbulence, this will come before middle age. Venus is the ruler of the signs placed 3rd and 8th from Pisces. Both these places can indicate serious problems. (Read the earlier posts on the 3rd and 8th houses). In this period you will suddenly enter into relationships which will cause upheaval on the emotional fronts.
The Moon Mahadasha in the Vimshottari system will also cause health problems which will primarily originate from the emotional context.
The emotional context of your spouse is Mercury-Virgo, 7th from Pisces. In a life-partnership it is essential that the two be compatible not similar. If both are the same, they, as a unit, will be taken advantage of by others. So they have to be fill-in-the-blanks for each other. A dreamy Pisces needs the qualities of an analytical Virgo in the spouse to take care of the regular material life. Even if your spouse is actually not a Virgo/Mercury, he will express some of those qualities after getting married to you. The solution is to let your spouse display his Mercury-traits outside the house. This will mean that he will have lesser contribution within the house. But it will help you as this gives him an outlet and you do not suffer.
You do not concentrate, you flow.
Travelling, seeing new things, experiencing them. Women especially love the anonymity that travel affords. This travel can be physical, astral, or even via imagination. Divert your creative energies, write a book!
Addictions are possible with this placement. So if this Moon is badly placed find your emotional anchor as early in life as possible. (Libra ascendants look out!). Best would be to start some personal spiritual practice. You are drawn to abstract dreamy, fluid, watery things. The private spiritual, meditation and solitude help you. Your enjoyment of things is on the emotional plane rather than the intellectual. You do not like being hurt emotionally yourself and neither do you like hurting others. You can go to any extent to avoid both of these things. You are of a pliable nature and cannot say ‘no’. Highly romantic in nature. This puts you in uncomfortable positions often and you can be easily dominated by your loved one.
Try and learn to put your personal emotions first.
You should understand one thing, others do not feel pain as deeply as you do. Stop feeling for others what they don’t feel for themselves. This is hyper-sensitivity causes you needless pain.
Three Nakshatra, lunar mansions, make up this sign, Purva-bhadrapada, Uttara-bhadrapada and Revati. These three are among the most sensitive sections of the zodiac. The very last degrees of Revati are the Gandant, the gap between watery-fiery signs. Birth in the Gandant will cause typical problems which require attention immediately after birth. Even if someone from your family dies with the Moon in these three Nakshatras it requires special rituals, it is the end of the zodiac.
Pisces is a watery, dual natured sign, the end of the zodiac. So Moon in Pisces Meen rashi is emotionally brilliant, intelligent, imaginative, intuitive, philosophical but whether all this remains in the astral realms or gets converted into the material realm depends on the ascendant sign, ascendant lord and the malefic/benefic influences on him in your horoscope.
