The Ascendant Sign in Esoteric Astrology
(Artwork by Kagaya)
THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD
It is in Pisces that the Victory of Love is achieved. This is due to the action of the esoteric ruler of the Fish, Pluto. In effect Pisces is like Scorpio, a sign of transmutation and death. This connection between the Fish and the Scorpion is quite profound, linked as they are through their mutual rulership by Pluto. It is through the “death” which occurs in the purifying waters of Pisces that one dies to all the desires that keep a person bound on the wheel of rebirth. Indeed, we can say that the waters of Pisces signify baptism, cleansing a person for “a new chance” at life.
The Soul purpose of a person with Pisces rising can be seen in two stages. The first is very definitely the cleansing process itself. This has to do with the work of transforming the personality from any vestiges of itself that can inhibit true Soul-centeredness. This is self-undoing, self-destruction in its most positive form. It is through the Will (Pluto and the First Ray) acting through Love (Pisces and the Second Ray) that the Pisces rising person learns how to make a clean severance from those past activities and karmic patterns that have inhibited Soul growth. It will be through the qualities of devotion and selflessness (aspects of Pisces’ other Ray, the Sixth) that the Fish come to swim in the holy waters of the Higher Self.
