As someone with a lot of Pisces in my Astrology make-up, I’ve heard all too often that Pisces just want to escape and are living in an illusory day-dreaming state. While I do relate to these tendencies, there is a certain beauty that is also present with escapism.
Being disconnected from reality doesn’t imply being disconnected from life or source. Disconnection can simply mean detaching from the present holographic reality. Detaching is a code word for transcendence. Sure, disconnection can lead to irresponsibility and numbness, but why do we assume that leaving implies swimming downward as opposed to upward…….hence the Pisces glyph? Disconnecting from reality is merely rising above the static here and now to take a gander from a different perspective, high up in the rose quartz coloured diamond sky.. A heightened level of awareness allows you the opportunity to have a broad view of what’s going on down below.
Rather than work against your energies and soul imprint, work with and immerse yourself in your dominant element. If that’s Water, then live your life from a place of non-attachment. Accept what is happening to you knowing that you can rise up into the clouds to gain perspective. If Earth is your element, live your life from a place of grit. Don’t be afraid to get down and dirty. Bury yourself deep into what’s handed to you, knowing that you will always be able to dig yourself out of the soils of toil. If Air is your dominant element than buckle down and study what comes your way, because you have the ability to solve any problem. If Fire is your dominant element know that fire is the energy of rebirth. You will always rise up from the ashes.
When Pisces is your dominant sign and Water is your dominant element, remember that you can always come up for air (perspective) when you find yourself being carried away the current.
A Whole New World
The Sabian Symbol for my 1 Degree Cancer Ascendant is
A PERSON ON A MAGIC CARPET OBSERVES VAST VISTAS BELOW
As the beautiful song from ‘Aladdin’ says- a whole new world awaits those willing to escape it every once in a while. What was once old, becomes new again.
Shining, shimmering splendid
Tell me, princess, now when did
You last let your heart decide!
Take you wonder by wonder
Over sideways and under
On a magic carpet ride
A new fantastic point of view
No one to tell us no
Or where to go
Or say we’re only dreaming
A dazzling place I never knew
But when I’m way up here
It’s crystal clear
That now I’m in a whole new world with you
Soaring, tumbling, freewheeling
Through an endless diamond sky
A whole new world
(Don’t you dare close your eyes)
A hundred thousand things to see
(Hold your breath it gets better)
I’m like a shooting star
I’ve come so far
I can’t go back to where I used to be
(Every turn a surprise)
With new horizons to pursue
(Every moment, red-letter)
There’s time to spare
Let me share this whole new world with you
(A whole new world)
That’s where we’ll be
(That’s where we’ll be)
