There is a lot going on in the sky right now. Yesterday’s eclipse was in the last couple of degrees of brainy Aquarius. Over the next couple of days, both the sun and Mercury move out of this intellect-driven air sign and into the mushy, emotionally-connected world of Pisces. For a little while, the sun, Mercury, Venus, Neptune and Chiron will all occupy the sign.
A lot of astrologers who value emotional intelligence over IQ are probably writing florid passages about spiritual awakening and the significance of dreams. I get that. I write that stuff, too. However, I don’t place a premium on EQ over IQ. You need to have both. If you don’t have both, you’re not going to function properly in the world.
So, in the shadow of yesterday’s eclipse, perhaps it’s a good time to integrate all this Pisces energy into a physical project that serves you both intellectually and emotionally. With Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn, there is an opportunity to direct your energy into something tangible.
Like the Stereo MC’s said, “It’s no illusion, call it reality.” Elevate your mind over the next month by discovering something that connects your mind, body and spirit in ways that make you feel whole. Remember that the symbol for Pisces isn’t just a fish, but rather two fishes holding a cord between their mouths in order to remain “Connected,” like that other song by the Stereo MC’s.
Or you could just go to iTunes and download the entire Stereo MC’s catalogue. Getting “Lost in Music” wouldn’t be such a bad thing during these Pisces transits, either.
