The Fish vs. the Sea Goat

This week, we find ourselves enmeshed in the compassionate, oceanic, spiritual energy of the Pisces fish. The Sun moves between both Pisces’ traditional ruler, Jupiter, and its modern one, Neptune, amplifying its expression. This means big feelings of empathy and intuition. The high-vibe expression is collective compassion, for example, how we are tuned into the crisis in Ukraine and offering our love and support from all over the world. The risk we run, however, is letting those emotions overwhelm, to the point of feeling too much. Establishing healthy emotional boundaries is not Pisces’ strong suit.

At the same time, this week we also have a tense Capricornian stellium with heavy-hitting Mars and Pluto overwhelming soft-spoken Venus. This can bring up power struggles - especially at work or within our relationships - and while the intensity is real, it serves to help bring the gunk to the surface to be healed. When Mars and Pluto are together, situations requiring emotional strength and courage could arise.

On the surface, the Pisces Fish and the Capricorn Goat have very little in common. But we have to remember, Capricorn is, in fact, a Sea-Goat. It is actually half goat and half fish!
