Pisces Rising Sign
Like their symbol, the fishes, Pisces Rising likes to go with the flow. They appear at first glance to be gentle, peace-loving artistic types, but the way they keep their hearts and minds open keeps them changeable and unpredictable. The typical Pisces Ascendant can seem to be a different person today than they were yesterday. Usually shy and quiet, tomorrow they may be passionate and exuberant. This allows them to blend in with many types of people. Pisces Rising is very impressionable, like the sand in the water. They are dreamy and soft-hearted. They are irresistibly charming and intriguing.
Pisces Ascendant sees the world through glasses tinted by their opinion, so they have a difficult time being objective. Decision making is difficult for them as well. They are so flexible that they don’t want to make plans for anything in the future. They don’t want to face any harsh realities. Organization is not their strong point.
Pisces Ascendant wants a stable, reliable partner. They need someone who is realistic and practical; who will help keep them grounded a bit. They are very emotional and compassionate… so much so that they can become their own victims due to their massive vulnerability. They can become their own worst enemy. They dislike confrontation, but are not above using manipulative game playing to get what they desire. A true romantic, the right pairing with a Pisces Ascendant can result in a creative romance worthy of a novel.
Pisces Rising is imaginative and creative. They may have artistic talents and psychic abilities to share. They may turn to spiritual matters or philosophy, and they have a great admiration for education, no matter what level they did or did not attain. Pisces Ascendant likes travel, sports and dancing. They can be very capable when they build up confidence in themselves.
Physically, they may be sensitive to anesthesia and other medications. Pisces Rising does not want to stand out in the crowd, and dislikes attracting attention to themselves. They are generous, sensitive and sentimental. On the other hand, they can manipulate others to feel sorry for them so they can benefit.
Some may see Pisces Rising as someone to take advantage of because they are so open and compassionate. They are sensitive to negative energy and criticism. It is difficult for them to shield themselves from either one. Pisces Ascendant may feel a deep lonesomeness that they can’t do anything about. If they can utilize this alone time for meditation or other introspection, they may be able to use their talents to their benefit.
They may do well in a career helping others, or a creative endeavor. Pisces Ascendant likes secrets. They use subtlety in life to ease their way. Their lesson in life is to learn to live their life rather than to dream it away. Pisces Rising may have many pets because they like having others to care for. Some may excel as animal communicators if they can develop their gifts to the point of being a reliable skill.
A man with an Ascendant in Pisces is more emotional and sentimental than other men, and also has a softer character. Such a man will never behave harshly, aggressively, intrusively. When faced with problems of life, he often tries to swim away from them, instead of deciding once and for all. These men have a great temptation to pour alcohol problems or to leave them in the narcotic world, which often happens in the end with them. However, some choose a different, higher path — engaging in esotericism, different energy and meditative practices. On men with the Ascendant in Pisces it is useless to try to exert direct pressure — they will simply disappear from your field of vision, it is better to try to penetrate with love and affection into their sensitive, vulnerable soul, and then you have a chance to stay in it forever.
Women with the Ascendant in Pisces are often supersensitive and super-enigmatic. They are very easy to hurt by any sharp word. Offended, they simply float away to their quiet creek and sit there until the situation is harmonized, all its appearance letting you know how wrong you are. To portray yourself as a victim (an evil husband, unhappy circumstances, bad parents or ungrateful children) is the favorite role of such women. To conquer the heart of such a woman, a man should be kind, sensitive and gentle, and also understanding and able to experience with her all her numerous grievances and troubles (often imaginary, however).
A child with an ascendant in Pisces is often shy and may seem mysterious. It is very important for him to have the opportunity to express himself in music, dance, fine arts and acting. Also, give him the opportunity to do something for others. Handle it patiently, intelligently, without excesses — otherwise the complex of the martyr can easily develop. He is also inclined to vagueness, uncertainty, and therefore it is useful to bring up in him a sense of logic and the ability to focus.
Spiritual Interpretation of Pisces Rising
The symbol for your rising sign is two fishes, bound together but moving in opposite directions. These fish represent your soul nature and your form nature. You have a form nature in order to experience the growth of your soul, yet the two can seem to struggle against each other. You find that pursuing your own personal material desires does not resolve this struggle, but only deepens it. You need to find a spiritual path that allows you both to satisfy your personal needs and desires, and to satisfy your spiritual yearning for significance.
How to accomplish this balance? You can focus first on your instinctual nature. You find that you usually have a feeling about what to do in any situation, but you sometimes listen to other people instead of paying attention to your inner daimon. One way to allow this inner voice its say is to take time each day to isolate yourself and listen. Listening to the sound of water can focus your mind and let your inner voice be heard.
On the physical plane you are drawn to mediumship - your psychic senses perceive a lot that other people overlook. As you begin to listen more deeply, you find that your role is that of mediator between the seen and unseen worlds. You can sympathize with the difficulties of others, and you can synthesize the feelings and motivations that can help them. As you develop this skill, you will find that you are no longer operating from the instinctual level, but now use your intellect to discern on both planes and to synthesize the information you gather.
Probably your major problem is your psychic sensitivity. You need to work with this ability on the intellectual level so that you can use it effectively, instead of being its victim. Your sign is associated with the feet. Forward progress involves learning how to walk, both physically and psychically, through the obstacles before you.
