I've been an Aries since I was born! Now astrologists and my local news crew say I just might be a Pisces-which I can't even spell. I had to look several times at the website I was referencing to check spelling. This 13th sign is really throwing me off! Check it out here :
So, in an effort to decide what I truly am I read my horoscope(s) for today:
Aries: Thursday, Jan 13, 2011 -- Normally, too much restraint would make you feel restless, but today it probably won't cause you much concern. In fact, you may be eager to meet all your obligations because that would separate you from the pack and show others what you can do. Additionally, once you finish your chores, you'll be able to justify doing something that's more pleasurable and no one will be able to find fault with your plans.
Pisces: Thursday, Jan 13, 2011 -- You are standing right at the edge of a profound breakthrough, making it vital for you to maintain a positive attitude. However, being confident doesn't mean that you're fearless; it simply means that you are willing to face your fears. Ultimately, the forces of optimism and good luck can overcome most obstacles today, so continue pushing forward while it still matters.
This really didn't help me decide, so I am going to put Aries/Pisces info on here, and let you decide. I may know myself better than anyone else, but a second opinion is always welcome here.
All About Aries
March 21 - April 19
Rise and conquer! You Aries stare roadblocks straight in the face with a headstrong, take-charge attitude. And you Rams don’t have horns on your head for nothing -- they certainly come in handy when diving headfirst into goals and projects, which you so often do.
Others are drawn to follow you, as Rams also make great action-oriented leaders with know-how. Although you're eager to face your fears in order to beat them, you are certainly up for the challenges that come your way.
While it may be backwards for others, your motto is "Ready, fire, aim!" because you take a different approach -- you learn as you go along, which speaks to your level of confidence. At the same time, that impulse to “dig in” can cause false starts, and before you know it, you’re in too deep. Oftentimes, you’re forced drop one project and move on to another, before even finishing the first task. Take your time in the decision-making process and make sure you know exactly what you’re getting yourself into.
The Aries element is Fire
It makes perfect sense that as a Fire sign, Aries are naturally warm, but they’re also spontaneous -- and obviously at times, just plain hot. So even when others feed on your survival skills, you stay full of warmth. You don’t make moves based on logic, but intuition, while keeping in the moment.
Horoscope house: 1st
Everything begins with the 1st house, and Aries is the first sign of the zodiac. The 1st house symbolizes our physical body and personality, and how the rest of the world sees you -- not how you see the world. New beginnings, childhood or the start of a budding relationship or project are also represented.
Aries' key planet: Mars
Don't mess with Mars! When others stand in your path, Mars inspires you to fight with determination. Not only is Mars called the "Warrior Planet," but it’s also referred to as the God of War in Greek mythology. Fighting aside, you want to be on the move constantly, and Mars represents your expression of energy and the way in which you move forward in life. In regards to Aries, it results in jumping right in and moving forward with tenacity.
Your greatest strength
You overcome fear with courage
Your possible weakness
You don't finish what you start
All About Pisces
February 19 - March 20
Fish act as one when swimming with their schools, and just as each fish is part of a greater whole, you Pisces Fish are more aware of interdependency than any other zodiac sign. It's as if you live in an ocean and the spirit that flows through you is one that flows through all fishes. The symbol of the Fish is also the symbol of Christianity, the predominant religion during the past two thousand years -- also known to astrologers as the "Age of Pisces."
As a Pisces, you are spiritual in nature and emotional in expression. Intuition and imagination are both your strengths and weaknesses, and you are attracted to the mystical side of things -- this can be dangerous, though, because the realm of imagination offers little structure to your everyday life. Without the foundation of reality, it becomes easy to flounder. Your own salvation, then, can come from helping others less fortunate than yourself -- those who have been caught in the currents of life and into addiction or spiritual confusion.
Your motto might be "Reality is just a shared illusion," and, in a higher sense this may be true. Nevertheless, you still need to survive in this "shared illusion" of reality, which can sometimes become a struggle as you compassionate Fish often feel the pain of the world as if it were your own. There's no easy escape -- your best path is to follow a creative or spiritual pursuit while doing your work in the real world.
The Pisces element is Water
The waters of Pisces are the waters of consciousness itself. Just as Water is the element of emotion, the Water of Pisces connects each of us to one another in ways that go beyond the rational and into the sea of thoughts and beliefs.
Horoscope house: 12th
The 12th house is like the astrological refuse collector. It's not about endings in the traditional sense; it's more about recycling. Here is where we brush up against our own limitations and see how they undo what we've done. Here is where it all dissolves into the boundless cosmos, only to be transformed and to start anew, back in the 1st house, all over again.
Pisces' key planet: Neptune
As the key planet for Pisces, Neptune is about the spiritual and the mystical. It's about what we cannot see with our five senses. Neptune was the God (or Goddess) of the Seas. She symbolizes the dissolution of reality, for all earth arises from the ocean and eventually to it returns. Neptune is represented by the mists, which prevent us from seeing what's really "out there." Instead, we must rely on our own imagination to guide us through the hidden realms.
Your greatest strength
You have compassion for those in need
Your possible weakness
Your confusion can be a disadvantage
SO...I don't know what all of this means, aside from the fact that I am confused (which points to Pisces, I KNOW!) ...However, I don't set a whole lot of store by this whole astrology thing anyway, it's just fun. This new sign, Ophiuchus, is making things KOOKY! : )
*Age of Aquarius- The Fifth Dimension (Oh, you KNOW that's funny!)
