Pisces 20th February - 20th March
(reprinted with permission from the September 2012 edition of The Essence)
The most watery of the three water signs is Pisces. On the positive side, water brings sensitivity, compassion and empathy. Pisceans have an abundance of these qualities, which can lead to them becoming emotional and psychic sponges, soaking up the feelings and energies of all those around them. They are ruled by the Roman god Neptune, King of the Oceans, and their symbol is two fish swimming in opposite directions.
This issue of wobbly Piscean boundaries is worthy of mention - just visualise a beach, where the ocean meets the shore - where is the definite line where sea ends and land begins? It all melds and merges together. Much the same thing happens with Pisceans and everyone else's auras and thoughts and feelings. As they know, we are all One, we are all connected, what you do to another you do to yourself, (it's all very Sydney Rose). For putting in and maintaining firmer boundaries with others, Flannel Flower can be very useful. Pisceans do have a reputation for being confused and confusing - you might be too if you were a fish out of water, who is prone to taking on everyone else's stuff, and have constantly shifting boundaries on top of it all.
Pisceans have many of the attributes of an old soul - charitable, self sacrificing and wishing to be of service, with a tendency to pursue a more spiritual (as opposed to material) path in life. They are great listeners and are fairly unshockable - so many people use them as confidantes and counsellors. Too much of this can lead to emotional burnout, for which Alpine Mint Bush can be used; it is a wonderful emotional restorative. With their ability to see the big picture and the spiritual perspective in events, Pisceans may give away their personal power; allowing themselves to be abused by others - taking on a victim / martyr mentality or turning the other cheek. Southern Cross is good for all of this, helping to improve their sense of personal empowerment.
There is a leaning towards escapism - the real world can be too harsh for this most sensitive of souls. Daydreaming is one way to escape, as is being ungrounded, unrealistic or foggy in the head. Sundew (found in Emergency Essence) addresses all these traits. Creative pursuits are another means of escape, with many artisans having a strong Piscean influence in their chart. If the creative channel becomes blocked, Turkey Bush can help get their creative juices flowing again.This is a much better alternative than turning to drugs or alcohol, which for Pisceans are a tempting means of escaping reality. Addictive tendencies can be helped with a combination of Monga Waratah, Bauhinia, Bottlebrush, Boronia and Wedding Bush - a theme discussed in the Level 2 workshop.
Traditional astrology teaches that Pisces has an affinity with the feet, lymphatic system and the aura. In mindbody medicine, any problems with the feet would suggest an issue with moving forward, or with your direction. If you are feeling stuck, Red Grevillea is very helpful, while Silver Princess helps you to become clear upon your life direction, and the next steps you need to take upon your journey, particularly if you are feeling aimless or apathetic. Bush Iris has a resonance with the lymphatic system. Angelsword and Fringed Violet assist with keeping the aura intact, so are excellent for psychic protection and for cleansing the energies of others from your own aura. Both are found in Space Clearing Mist, Emergency Essence, Travel Essence and Intensive Hand Cream.

Petaltones are a unique range of flower essences that work on multiple levels via evaporation into the chakras and the auric field. They are the creation of David Eastoe, who began making the Petaltone essences in 1992 from English wild flowers that grow in powerful natural settings as well as flowers from the Island of Hawaii. The Petaltone Essences are for external use only.
We are pleased to introduce 5 new Petaltone essences from David Eastoe.
- Creative helps to structure your energies so that you can create your life, assisting with the relationship between the world of structure and the world of ideas.
- Source 77 connects you with your full potential at a soul level. This essence works well with Creative. Between them they help connect you with your life's potential.
- Healing Flame purifies the energies along your central energy column/spine, relieving tensions and freeing up blocked energy.
- Temple Flame is a clearing and protection essence, that works gently but powerfully via the element of Fire.
- Violet Silver Angel is a protection essence that uses these two colours to shield your aura against unwanted intrusions.
