Pisces Decan ii – 9 of Water – Illusive Happiness

The Illusive Hunt for Happiness

The Second Decan of Pisces is ruled by Jupiter, planet of expansion and growth. When placed in the Sign of Pisces, one can imagine an endless sea full of all sorts of possibilities and opportunities.

This is why many Tarot cards are labeled ‘Happiness’ either at this Decan or the next. But consider the concept of being a fish swimming in a school. Sure there is strength in numbers, but is there individual freedom of choice? Do any of the fish have an opportunity to grow and flourish as unique beings? Or do they mindlessly follow every twist and bend established by the lead fish? Would they even know if they were being led astray; into the gaping maw of a whale, for instance?

As a human, we often follow the same instinctual paths when it comes to our emotional life. We are raised in collective school situations and indoctrinated with our often provincial social programs. We feel powerful and popular if we happen to swim at the leading edge of the group for a time, but we may never get to know what the TRUTH of our inner Spirit is crying out to express.

When we go along with the crowd, THEY will mold our psyche and inform our consciousness. It’s only when we break away from these restrictions that we, as individuals, begin to blossom and shine in our own right!! Dare to be original and shine in your own awareness!

~Besides, as we eventually discover, that Happiness itself is elusive and fleeting. Why can’t we rather embrace the small things in life as ‘pleasures that bring joy’ and embrace them, even as we are aware that they are fleeting?

Can you grow your inner Self to the point of releasing your instinct to grab hold of Happiness with both hands? The answer is YES, when you do the inner work of INTROSPECTION. Look within to notice what Triggers you and how you unconsciously REACT. Can you step away from conflict, pause, breathe, center your energy and re-examine WHY you want to react with anger? If you will do this work to discover your initial programming as a child, you’ll see what expectations you have of others that are self-centered and based on worn-out expectations.

Learning to accept the TRUTH of any situation is hard work. But it’s very worth the time spent in Self Discovery. Get curious about your instinctual PATTERNS. Ask yourself Why you are angry, annoyed, frustrated or upset. Listen for the answers from your inner voice and analyze it. How old is this voice? Is it a voice from someone else? Is it a worn-out voice from your past that you can release in order to acknowledge and accept the present?

JOY ONLY EXISTS IN THE PRESENT MOMENT.

Try allowing the joy of the moment to bless you and move along? I think people would learn to be less proprietary about ‘having’ and more open to ‘experiencing’ life, love and all good things, be more optimistic and open to diverse thinking and acceptance of everyone~ if we could engage with the flow of Happiness rather than the impossible task of holding onto it, forever.

Namaste’
