Today is a fishy day. The sun moves into Pisces this afternoon, and later tonight Mercury conjoins Neptune in Pisces — the first of three such conjunctions between the two planets.
To celebrate, I’m going to wear my Eton fish shirt. The one in the photo is a reissue of the shirt that I own: the original Eton fish shirt. I suppose it’s a collector’s item now that the company is producing knock-offs from its own archive. The print on mine features bigger fish and my shirt doesn’t have a pocket. The current price for the new version is $285 USD. I got mine for a song, although I had to get my Pisces friend on the West Coast to pick it up for me in Bellingham, Washington, just across the Canadian/US border, because Saks didn’t ship to Canada back then.
Speaking of that Pisces friend, we’re headed to Vegas in a couple of weeks. I’m going to bring along my other fish shirt to celebrate her fishiness. Yes, I have two fish shirts. There’s a photo of it on my Instagram page if you’re interested in seeing it. Click “About Me” link above and follow the links provided.
When we’re in Vegas, I’m also planning to visit the Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay. I was there several years ago with my two Pisces friends and I’d love to go back.
With all this fish talk, it probably seems as if I like fish a lot more than I do. I suppose that I’m just comfortable when the sun is in Pisces. It corresponds with the sun’s transit through my fifth house (which I blogged about yesterday), but more than that, it brings out the best in me, or at least I think it does. It makes me wonder if any other Capricorn natives feel the same.
On that note, Venus and Saturn form a conjunction today in Capricorn. Venus rules over my Libra ascendant and Saturn is the ruler of my sun sign. This conjunction is just a degree away from my natal sun. Needless to say, I’ve got a lot going on.
Nevertheless, I feel great. Last year at this time, I was blogging about feeling as if I was on the upswing. I still feel that way. My health is terrific. My mood is terrific. I feel hopeful for the future. I know a lot of astrologers would look at Saturn’s proximity to my natal sun and speculate that I would be feeling oppressed, or even depressed. Instead, I feel liberated, like I’m able to sit back and watch the world fix itself without feeling as if I have to intervene. Saturn in Capricorn is reminding me of the old adage “slow and steady wins the race.” Only in this case, I feel like a salmon swimming along with the current rather than a tortoise trying to get to the finish line. I just know that once I get out to the open water, I’m finally going to have some room to grow.
Or maybe I’m just self-deluded with all this planetary action in Pisces. In either case, I like how I’m feeling right now while the universe is serving fish. I could get used to this.
