Pisces: 19.02 - 20.03
When the Sun enters Pisces it is the time of ‘breaking waters’. The snow is melting and what was previously solid ground and crystal clear ice turns into slush and mud. Pisces is a very watery sign and may likewise rapidly change moods from seemingly stable to emotional outbreaks that seem to come from nowhere. Pisces is like a boundless ocean; it knows no limits and seeks to transcend ego boundaries. He may very intuitive and even psychic, picking up on feelings, thought-forms and ethereal entities, but because of a blurred sense of identity may not realize that's where they are coming from. They are human chameleons and can make great actors, as they easily adapt and slip into different characters, though sometimes find it difficult to slip out of their role again when the show is over. He may identify with another person, group or ideal and his psychological openness makes Pisces very vulnerable to abuse. Pisces may seek to overcome his ego-boundaries through belief in a greater power or ideal and can be very self sacrificing in service to that power, especially if they are spiritually inclined, but may easily lose touch with reality. Sometimes the self-sacrifice is directed at caring for another person, though there is a danger of co-dependency. Pisces is likely to feel the pain and suffering of the world within his own soul and may become depressive. He may seek escape in drugs, alcohol or some other obsession and because of its boundlessness easily oversteps his capacity. More than any other sign Pisces needs a shape to fill, a role to play, a task to fulfil to be truly happy. Pisces can benefit greatly from Venus, who when in Pisces will turn into an ocean of love.
Candles can be burnt to create a special ambience at any time, though their soft light is particularly conducive for romantic occasions. Candles are widely used for spiritual and magical work. Ritualistic candle burning aids concentration on a specific magical intent. As you focus on the flame visualize your intentions being consumed and transformed into ethereal thought forms. Energy follows thought. To turn your dreams, wishes and visualizations into realities, follow thought with action, charged with the cosmic energy of the sacred fire.
To ensure best results and minimise any possible dangers, please take heed of the following precautions: Burn candles for one hour per inch of diameter to ensure even burning. The wax needs time to warm up and melt. Burning the candle for less than the recommended time will usually result in a hole burning down the middle of the candle and the wick will eventually drown. Keep the wick trimmed to about ¼ inch to reduce smokiness and dripping. Always burn candles on suitable surfaces, preferably fire-proof dishes or candleholders, which will also catch any dripping wax. Don't expose lit candles to draughts as this results in uneven burning an excessive drippiness. Keep candles out of sunlight to preserve their colours. Use your common sense when playing with fire. Keep candles out of reach of children and animals.
