The zodiac sign Pisces is embodied by two Fish and its glyph represents an image of these Fish, linked together for eternity. It’s important to know that it is not just one Fish, but two. They are a representation of Pisces’ ability to exist simultaneously in both a conscious and subconscious world. Ruled by Neptune, Pisces is intuitive and incredibly creative by nature. With a soul as deep and vast as the oceans, Pisces thrives in a world of fantasy, where its imagination can flow freely. The currents of Neptune allow Pisces to swim through a never-ending world of imagination and spirituality where anything is possible. This house is all about taking time for healing and rejuvenation before beginning anew. The 12th house represents your connection to spirituality, the deep and personal emotions you feel, and the openness of your heart. Pisces’ understanding of quiet contemplation and emotional speculation is heavily reflected in the 12th House of Subconscious. As the last sign of the zodiac, Pisces is also connected to the idea of cycles that every ending is a new beginning which is represented by the two Fish swimming in opposite directions.
Pisces’ Tarot Card: The Moon
Every zodiac sign is ruled by a Tarot card from the Major Arcana! The zodiac sign of Pisces is ruled by The Moon card. The Moon card represents our ability to rely on our instincts and intuitions, while Pisces is known as the most intuitive sign of the zodiac. The Moon, in all its mystical and idealistic wonder, is the Tarot card of Pisces. The Moon Tarot card encourages Pisces to go with the flow of nature, instead of swimming against its currents. A sensitive Water sign, Pisces is represented by two Fish, earning the nickname, “the Fishes with wishes” because of their powerful imagination and creative spirit. If you’re looking for kindness and empathy, Pisces is THE most compassionate sign of the zodiac. Pisces rules the 12th House of Privacy, Escape, and Secrets. Often seen as a negative, our sign’s card, the Moon, can be interpreted in a positive and illuminating way because it steps in when the positive side of your personality seems to be hiding or when we need protection from negative forces.
In addition to being a Water sign, Pisces is ruled by the planet Neptune, also known as the God of the Sea. These dreamy little fish are spiritual and intuitive, with Pisces being the most psychic sign of all. If you draw this card backwards during a reading, its warning effect comes into play, meaning that it is the wrong time for us to put a plan in action, that we are misaligned with the phases of the Moon, or that we are shadowing away from our true self.
The water on The Moon card symbolizes the subconscious. The crustacean emerging from the water represents “coming into consciousness” and the possession of psychic abilities, which is often true of those born under Pisces. The dog and the wolf in this card represents how our wild side blends with our tame side. This recurring theme of unity can also be found in the towers. They symbolize the practical life that most of us lead, while the path between them reminds us of the more meaningful life that we desire. This is very true to the nature of Pisces, who are always dreaming of something more fantastic than what is actually in front of them. Like Pisces, The Moon card is associated with the subconscious and often highlights idealism — suggesting that things are not as they may appear. The Moon card also represents our secretive side or “shadow self”.
The Major Arcana “ The Moon in Pisces”, represent important themes such as karmic lessons and cause and effect of situations and people, while guiding us to understand and enlighten us on the details of the matter and truths in the world. A Pisces won’t bring you around people important to them if they don’t love you, so if you’re around their friends and family then you’re good to go. Be careful though, if you don’t make a good impression then they’ll have second thoughts. They want to make sure that you’re just as adaptable and likeable: a friend to their loved ones, but a great lover to them in private.
Pisces in the Minor Arcana- Page of Cups
Pisces is the mutable Water sign, so we’re looking at our emotional resources and how these might need to change. Pisces helps us to maintain our integrity. Combined with Pisces, it wants to transcend the restrictions that we find ourselves surrounded by so that we can ‘merge’ with others. It needs to find a way to express its feelings in such a way that it still feels stable but not stuck. Pages are often seen as messengers and come to you with a new opportunity or an invitation. Pages encourage you to go for it and give you the green light for a new project or initiative. The Page of Cups heralds a positive message or news from loved ones. You may hear about the birth of a child, an engagement or marriage, a wonderful idea or plan, pregnancy, a new relationship, travel plans, etc. Court cards have a unique place within the Tarot because they either reflect your present psychological state or the perceptions of others. The Page of Cups, in the present position, indicates vulnerabilities in relating to others. Perhaps someone is offering nurturing in order to get something from you for themselves.
The duality between Yin and Yang unite both beauty and illusion as one. The Moon and page of cups have both beauty and darkness of life; it shows us the path and the correct direction to go on. Although it is complex but also give us a way to deal with life, in its own gentle way.
