MYL'S PISCES BLEND
Updated: Mar 21, 2019
Pisces is the last sign (12th house) of the zodiac symbolized by two fish swimming in opposite directions. Their path speaks to duality, the yin/yang of nature. Pisces is a mutable water sign. The water represents emotions, the mutability points to the ease of flow in life. Pisces have a great capacity to adapt to any situation, instinctively knowing what do in any given arena. Pisces live through their emotions. They will, more than not, refer to their surroundings by how they feel, how something effects them emotionally. They use the words “I sense”, “I feel”, “I have an intuitive knowing”, “I believe”. Pisces have two ruling planets – Neptune and Jupiter. And thanks to Neptune they are the most psychic sign of the zodiac, deeply spiritual and open to other’s emotions.
Pisces are the easygoing dreamers — artistic and creative individuals with a vivid imagination who spend time developing a higher consciousness. They are some of the most gentle and patient members of the zodiac, notoriously empathetic and intuitive to the needs of others. Their out-of-this-world nature can make them seem like they've got their head in the clouds, or even lazy, but Pisces is just busy brainstorming a way to save the world with love. Being a dual sign, many Pisces can be accused of being wishy-washy, since in their polaric nature, they see both sides and deeply understand the reasons behind each. This swimming in both directions can also make them unreliable and seemingly confused with the world around them. They can seem vacillating and lackadaisical because they sense the possibility of many alternate realities and different levels of consciousness, so therefore they can’t “buy into” any one scheme or ideology. Pisces truly are multi-dimensional. As with all dual natures, this can be a gift and a curse.
Pisces serve mankind in a quiet, understated way. They love supporting people in a selfless way, compassionately taking on the other person’s burdens or joys. They have an inner need to help others, even to the extent of being self-sacrificing. This can be draining on a fish’s energetic reserve and they have to take care of their physical well-being. Pisces love to escape into their own tranquil, peaceful, illusory world. They are happiest in fantasy, in a timeless place with no complications, no demands and no struggles. Meditation is essential for these fish, who need “down time” in a quiet reflective space.
Two of my best friends and sparkle witches are Pisces, so when I began this blend I thought of what would be good for both of them, something grounding and gentle for her compassionate heart, but also something that fed her infectious energy. I didn't want to make this blend to change or temper her, I wanted it to emphasize the things that I know she likes about herself.
It's definitely a challenge creating an astrological sign blend, because we each have certain parts of us that are more connected to our star sign than others. Or that come out at different times. In no way do I think there is ONE Pisces oil (although I'm thinking about what would be the GO TO oil for each sign), probably you could have a set of Pisces' oils for different times. For Pisces, the GO TO oil is NEROLI.
The essential oil of Neroli is ideal for grounding Pisces’ dreamy, unpractical nature and for nurturing the sensitive inner-self as its energy supports meditative desires by quieting the minds to allow for universal influences to be expressed. Use it when your nerves feel a little frayed and let it promote calm and rational thinking when your emotions become too hot to handle. It's excellent for keeping even the dreamiest among us focused and aware. Throughout the zodiac we see each sign ruled by a body part, working its way down to the feet where Pisces born experience bunions, corns and tired aching feet. To reduce the pain in their feet, many of those under this sign will use Cedarwood oil. With antifungal properties this oil also reduces the pain in arthritis of the feet and general foot soreness.
The gift, that they are intuitive, understanding and sensitive can be supported by essential oils such as sandalwood, frankincense, ylang ylang, vetiver, melissa, rose, neroli, jasmine, and clary sage.
The curse, that they are spacey, disconnected, dreamy, and unrealistic can be grounded by essential oils like rosemary, peppermint, black pepper, bergamot, helichrysum, basil, and cedarwood.
Essential oils that help with the fear of being out in the world are clary sage, spikenard, frankincense, marjoram, melissa, sandalwood, ylang ylang, lavender, geranium and vetiver.
Essential oils that build up pisces energetic reserves are rose, lavender, chamomile, grapefruit, jasmine, all the oranges (neroli, petitgrain, sweet orange), sandalwood, lemon, geranium, and juniper berry.
Oils that soothe and comfort the inner Piscean world are lavender, neroli, sandalwood, patchouli, ginger, frankincense, rose, ylang ylang, chamomile, immortelle, carnation, and hyacinth.
