The Three Levels of Pisces

RisaNewSSunday is the Full moon Pisces Solar Festival (26 degrees) and Purim, the Jewish Festival of Queen Esther who saved the temple in Persia and her people.
In this last week of Pisces, let us understand Pisces more. Our world is made up of energy triangles (like Buckminster Fuller’s geodesic domes). Every person, event, kingdom functions on three levels (Personality, Soul, Spirit—the Trinity in all of creation and religions).

Everyone, everything, every nation experiences developmental stages. From darkness to light, from unknowing to knowing, from forgetting (our origins) to remembering, from sleep to being awakened, from chaos to harmony and beauty. In all the signs, as in Pisces, there are three levels. Recognizing them in ourselves and others brings forth understanding and compassion (Pisces virtue). Everyone experiences the following stages.
At first, we live in opaque waters, then translucent waters, and then we become the Waters of Life. At first we seek mediums (channelers) to tell us who we are, what to do, where to go. Then we become mediators, then World Saviors. From unconsciously responding to the world, then sensitive in the world, to including all the world. From blind sensation, to compassion, to identifying with all Creation. From the undisciplined life, to the Crucified life to Resurrected life. From slavery and bondage (many lifetimes), to being a servant to becoming a World Server where we finally realize we are Divine. We are all Pisces during the month of Pisces - the two fish, one looking above, the other below. One sings the other doesn’t. The other dances. Let us ponder upon these things in Pisces.

ariesAries-March 21–April 20
You might seek some sort of transcendent level of communication with God, nature or your Soul. You might choose prayer, meditation, dreaming, philanthropy, tending and care of the ill. Seeking angels and devas and things unworldly to most. Perhaps you will write poetry, music, read Rumi or go fishing. You may fear being lost in chaos, in waters, no boundaries. You may be extra sensitive, lost in imagination and surrender.


taurusTaurus April 21–May 21
Daily, selflessly you share with others all that you study, learn, research and know. Your imagination takes you everywhere in terms of understanding the depths and reaches of world events. You are compassionate and kind. For this reason you seek groups that transcend physical boundaries where chaos is understood. You could become an artist and/or a filmmaker. Filming the new age, the harmony through the chaos.

geminiGemini May 22–June 20
You wish your work could transcend boundaries and definitions. You’re really a mystic. In the public you dispense information. In your personal inner life you’re quite different. Offering yourself in service, selflessly and idealistically is your real identity, functioning within the imagination, realizing non-physical realities. Some think you’re chaotic and confused. We know you’re visionary, living in other worlds. Like Pisces does.

cancerCancer June 21–July 20
Education is most important to you. Education that is metaphysical, philosophical, cultural and religious. These horizons reach your mind, support your sense of compassion, knowledge and practice of sacrifice and selflessness. Music is most important. It takes you beyond physical limitations to where there are no rules or regulations. You need this often. It produces kindness within.


leoLeo July 21–August 22
At times you feel confused, chaotic and moody, wanting to merge completely with another, dying and coming back to life. Few understand this with you. You hide it well. You create drama so that separations occur. Otherwise you feel you’re drowning. This occurs often with sex for you. Barriers dissolve and this feels dangerous, so you choose ways to maintain safety and boundaries. Study the psychology of the imagination.


virgoVirgo August 23–September 22
You achieve a transcendent experience when focused upon health, exercise, daily work, organizing, serving and tending to the animal kingdom. Always imagination must be involved. Your work requires selfless compassion. Or the work won’t make sense to you. You’re charitable, a social worker, seeking the welfare of everyone. Your environments must have a spiritual orientation. Routine is most important. Go fishing sometime.


libraLibra September 23–October 22
Take special care of your body during this time. Strive to maintain vitality of health—physical, emotional and mental and spiritual. Cleanliness (inner/outer) is most important. Drink pure water, orange and lemon juice, fresh vegetable juices daily. Make all work conditions harmonious. Should disharmony occur, walk away. Do not return. You can overwork. Know you’re always a success, there is no failure. Let all your dreams come true.

scorpioScorpio October 23–November 21
You’re attracted to romantic imaginative people, spiritual and kind, selfless and sacrificing. You learn from them. They love you so deeply you discover your true self. Often they are also poets and mystics, musicians and filmmakers. Their imaginations , allow your imagination to come forth. The discovery of your creativity is at times a surprise to you. You’re able to withstand withdrawn and melancholy people, too. You understand them.


saggSagittarius November 22–December 20
Your most important transcendent reality is relation with family, heritage, traditions, and mother. You’re a nurturer although you hide this well. It’s important to live in an area that supports and nourishes. Sometimes you long to live in the “motherland,” in or near deep waters, a desert, the woods, monasteries, communities.  Or a family compound. Curved and flowing walls and spaces are best. Nature follows these guidelines.


capricornCapricorn December 21–January 20
Half the time you are out and about in the community. The rest of the time you’re in a book, under covers, in front of a fire, a Vesta hearth preparing nourishment for others. Sometimes your thoughts are in the clouds. Lost in your imagination you’re also practical with a poetic sensitivity. You feel compassion for your family, neighbors and humanity. Some days are chaotic, other are passionate with conversations. You can be a writer.


aquariusAquarius January 21–February 18
It’s most important to cultivate goodwill with everyone, especially work associations. Be very aware and cautious of others’ behaviors and agendas. Allow no quick money schemes. Others may practice these dubious behaviors. However you cannot. You must at all times be free and understand what is of value (and what is not). Careful with spending. Give only with love.

 
piscesPisces February 19–March 20
Approach everything gently and with empathy. Maintain boundaries, yet allow for compassion as well as confusion to inform your life. Create an imagination journal. Listen to music. Allow nothing to cloud a hopeful approach to life. Sometimes Pisces can feel despairing. Feeling life is a dim distant reality for them. Pisces isn’t of this dimension. Their work is to see potential in others and support that potential. It’s a rare gift. Your work.

Oh Dear Risa, I so know your pain and feelings of an orphan. My dear Mother died 11 years ago the night before my birthday. I felt all of what you are feeling and I feel deeply for you. She came to me the 3rd day after her passing. She came in a beautiful tear shaped pearl, then she said to me " I am so sorry it's taken me so long but they've had such a party for me" She was so very happy & radiant!! I could only see her in my mind's eye but I felt her overwhelmingly.
I share this with you to know your Dear Mother is so there for you too.
Many Blessings and much love, from one daughter to another.
Brandi

Over Hills and Plains, Riding a White Horse, Bow and Arrows in Hand

Saturday, early morning, the sun enters and radiates the light of Sagittarius. Three hours later, the Sagittarius new moon (0.07 degrees) occurs. “Let food be sought,” is the personality-building keynote. “Food” means experiences; all kinds, levels and types. It also means real food. Sag’s secret is their love of food. Many, if not musicians, are chefs. Some are both. The energies shift from Scorpio’s deep and transformative waters to the “hills and plains of Sagittarius.” Sag is the rider on a white horse, eyes focused on the mountain peaks of Capricorn (Initiation) ahead. Like Scorpio, Sagittarius is also the “disciple.” Adventure, luck, optimism, joy and the beginnings of gratitude are the hallmarks of Sagittarius. Sag is also one of the signs of silence. The battle lines were drawn in Libra and we were asked to choose where we stood. The Nine Tests were given in Scorpio and we emerged “warriors triumphant.” Now in Sag, we are to be the One-Pointed Disciple, riding over the plains on a white horse, bow and arrows in hand, eyes focused on the Path of Return ahead. Sagittarians are one-pointed (symbol of the arrow). Sag asks, “What is my life’s purpose?” This is their quest, from valleys, plains, meadows and hills, eyes aimed always at the mountaintop. Sag emerges from Scorpio’s deep waters, conflict and tests into the open air. Sag’s quest is humanity’s quest. Sag’s quest, however, is always accompanied by music and good food.
