Pisces and the magical melusine

Maya as Mermaid

Have you seen this mermaid before? 

Everyone knows that Pisces, sign of the two fish swimming in opposite directions, is associated with the oceans and seas.

The ancient ruler of Pisces is Jupiter, aka Zeus or Jove. Yes, astrologically I use ancient rulers rather than the ‘moderns’…Uranus, Neptune, or Pluto, the transpersonal or generational planets.

Here you see an image of a melusine or mermaid, as known in fairy tales, with the lovely oceanic name of Maya. This drawing is named after my daughter, Maya, but I assure you she has feet (ruled by Pisces!) rather than a tail with scales and fins. Good swimmer though.

Melusines were reputed to have magical powers, the most famous one being the Piscean myth where a mortal man caught a melusine, fell in love, and married her but had to promise Not To Pry into Her Secrets.

Out of excessive nosiness, he didn’t keep his promise which resulted in a sad parting of ways for the both of them. Starfish-crossed lovers, I suppose. She only wanted to protect her illusive mystique.

If you know anyone with lots of Pisces energy within (and we all have Pisces somewhere in our natal charts) you’ll recognize this secretive side of Pisces. Sometimes it really is best not to ask…or your creative, dreamy Pisces may go pouf and disappear!
