Every Pisces Rising contains an ocean of oceans of things. Pisces Rising IS an ocean, IS imagination… creativity… and Christlike compassion, all atoned, attuned, at-one.
First of all, your Soul Mates… in ancient astrology, they went much more by Rising Signs. Others with the same Rising Sign constituted your cohort or traveling companions in life.
Those with Pisces Rising include George Clooney, Robert Redford, Demi Moore, Antonio Banderas, Al Capon, Johnny Cash, Aristotle Onassis, Deepak Chopra, Alexander Graham Bell, Elizabeth Kubler-Ross, Dean Martin, Peter the Great of Russia, Rasputin, Theodore Roosevelt, Frederico Garcia Lorca, John Coltrane, Carole Lombard, William of Orange, Calvin, Somerset Maugham, Romulus, Oliver Cromwell, Robert Zoller, Clara Bow, Evangeline Adams, Mary Tyler Moore, Rutherford Hayes, Warren Harding, Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Solzhenitsyn, Savonarola, Konrad Adenauer and Arthur Rubenstein.
What matters to Pisces Rising is to be one with all things but also to be a separate unique individual. It’s easy to do the first. It’s very hard to do the second. If you spend too much time outside your Ascendant, you can get swept out to sea, being easily drawn to drugs, alcohol, self pity, martyrdom or victimization. Johnny Cash’s life portrays the spectrum of possibilities from win big to lose big. Please rent “Walk the Line” with Joaquin Phoenix.
Your Ascendant tells you what experiences in life to choose in order to grow. Choose opportunities that allow you to contribute your soulful qualities and imagination in ways that you choose and not just to please others. Listen to people’s sad tales on your own terms. Make sure you have enough time alone to recharge your batteries. Russia’s Staretz or Holy Man Rasputin is a vivid example of the kind of mesmerizing, hypnotic power that can be summoned for healing others or other purposes.
If used negatively, Pisces Rising can be a sponge for all the negative energy in the room or Universe. This leads to depression, despair and even thoughts of suicide. As astrologer Richard Idemon said, the war cry of the unconscious Pisces is, “Not me. Not here. Not now.”
It’s critical to Pisces Rising to understand the difference between imagination and illusion, fantasy and escapism, truth and yearning for the truth, the past and everything else.
Depending on the sign and house of your Sun, you must pull these positive experiences towards you in order to grow. Find opportunities to relieve others of their burdens in your saint-like way but then turn it over to the Universe the way gurus do. At the end of each day, the guru turns over all the problems he’s heard to his guru or ascended master and goes on his way. Find ways to channel your creativity from cosmic consciousness into something YOU choose.
You also want to, as Martin Schulman says, “Choose all things that are evolving, not involving.”
When centered and in touch, Pisces Rising is utterly egoless and at one with the source of life and love. The phenomenal energy and reign of Peter the Great of Russia is a good example of the power that can be harnessed for evolution.
Your Rising Sign also describes your physical appearance. Pisces Rising is either ethereally beautiful or a little strange looking, which, of course doesn’t concern them either way. You will never meet people with more soulful eyes or less concerned with their physical appearance.
