- Famous People with Pisces Rising
"Go with the flow" seems to be a Pisces rising motto.
They move about the world in a vaguely directionless, gentle
manner. They come across as artists and lovers of peace; but their
open minds and hearts can give them a chameleon-like persona.
Others are not always sure who they'll meet from one day to the
next with a Pisces rising
person. Although often quiet and shy, another day may find them
talkative and passionate. They are hugely impressionable, have a
dreamy disposition, and project a soft-hearted personality. Pisces
rising sees the world the way they want to see it at any given
time, so objectivity is not necessarily a strong point. Neither is
People with Pisces rising resist
any kind of labeling--their characters are changeable, and they
don't want to be pinned down or pegged in any way. Theirs is a
restless, searching nature that cannot be happy with any one way
of living or being. Pisces rising avoids cold, hard facts and
harsh realities like the plague. They don't have a decisive plan
for tomorrow or even today, preferring to keep things open. Since
they change their minds frequently enough, and like to
"feel" their way through life, too much organization or
structure can be seen as very limiting.
Pisces rising people walk around
with their heads in the clouds, and even when you do have their
attention, their dreaminess is almost always apparent.
These people look for a stable
partnership--one that is reliable. Pisces rising people gravitate
to partners who keep them on their toes, and they often will pass
off the little details and reality checks to their significant
other. They seem to need a practical, realistic partner.
Pisces Ascendants often have a
sensitivity to drugs, and sometimes are prone to allergies that
come and go. Their physical constitutions seem to be less
resistant than most.
Pisces rising people often
possess an irresistible charm that comes on in a quiet way, with a
soft aura about them. Both their appearance and mannerisms are
usually quite intriguing to others.
The Ascendant (or rising
sign) is often considered the mask one wears when meeting
others. Perhaps it is most aptly thought of as the automatic
responses to one's environment. The Ascendant shows our natural
defenses and how we cope with day-to-day issues. The energies
of the sign and condition of the Ascendant are most overt and obvious to others.
The Ascendant shows an individual's first, natural reaction
to new people and situations.
The characteristics of Pisces Ascendant described above are modified by planets conjunct the
Ascendant, planets that aspect the Ascendant, and the position of
the ruling planet of the sign on the Ascendant. For example, a
person with a Pisces Ascendant with its ruling planets, Jupiter or
Sagittarius will respond to the environment a little differently
than another person, also with a Pisces Ascendant, but whose
Jupiter or Neptune
is in Scorpio. Similarly, a person with a Pisces Ascendant who
also has Saturn conjunct it will "behave" differently
than someone with a Pisces Ascendant who does not have that
aspect in their natal charts.

The point that was on the eastern horizon at the moment of your
birth is called the ASCENDANT, or rising sign. While the Sun
describes your conscious direction and current life focus, and the
Moon your subconscious predisposition and past, the Ascendant
indicates a way of being that transcends and embraces past, present,
and future. It describes the way you engage and merge with the outer
world and how you bring through into life the energies depicted by
the Sun, the Moon, and the rest of your birth chart. Everything is
filtered through the Ascendant from an esoteric point of view. It
indicates your soul's function and thus a key part of your destiny.

giving, and must learn your limits and when to say no.

and give credence to them. Your ruling planets are Jupiter, planet

grace into your life.

not the formal sense).
Pisces Rising and Jupiter in Capricorn

realms. Part of your soul function has to do with work on the inner
planes through prayer, meditation, or working with subtle forces.

Pisces Rising and Neptune in Aries
Your Neptune is in Aries: Ideals of heroic courage and dreams of a
powerful leader underlie your generation. In some way you personify
and must express the spirit of a warrior to fulfill your soul
Pisces Rising and Neptune in Taurus
Your Neptune is in Taurus: Images and ideals of the Perfect Woman,
or the Goddess, are the dreams of your generation. You have a deep

worship of material advantages are the bane of your generation.
Pisces Rising and Neptune in Gemini
Your Neptune is in Gemini: Fantasy, imagination, images and dreams
expressed through the written or spoken word is suggested here. You
are poetic but also illusory or confused about the nature of your
perceptions. To fulfill your purpose in life you must come to

spiritual longings of your generation. You must personify or
personally embody this spiritual nurturing in order to fulfill your
Pisces Rising and Neptune in Leo
Your feeling for beauty, the arts, and the spirit of creativity runs
deep and is a key aspect of your life purpose. You must in some way
embody this creative spirit, which is not to be confused with the
ego's need to dazzle and to be thought special. Superficial glamour
or self-worship can cloud your true spark.
Pisces Rising and Neptune in Virgo
The art and science of healing is a key part of your soul purpose.
The spiritual dimensions of health, the effects of prayer or imagery
upon the body, blending body with soul and spirit, angelic healing,
art as medicine - these are each ways you could express your true
Pisces Rising and Neptune in Libra
Your Neptune is in Libra: Ideals of sisterhood and brotherhood,
social equality, and idyllic relationships are the dreams of your
generation which in some way you personally embody or express.
However, illusions about "the perfect relationship" or being a
chameleon in order to please other people are tendencies that you
should beware of.
Pisces Rising and Neptune in Scorpio
Your Neptune is in Scorpio: An urge for a deep understanding of the
mysteries of life, death, afterlife, or the sudden forces of the
psyche is an underlying theme of your generation. You are a deep sea
diver. Avoid the murky waters of mind-altering drugs or distorted
imagery in art or music, in order to fulfill your highest destiny.

Bringing inspirational dreams to others is a part of your function.
Try to overcome a tendency toward lack of self discipline,
restlessness, and living in the clouds. Learn to ground your dreams
in everyday life.
Pisces Rising and Neptune in Capricorn

paternal heritage is an underlying theme in your generation. The
need for Divine Order - for spiritual order, structure, and
discipline - is a part of your life pattern.
Pisces Rising and Neptune in Aquarius
Dreams of a perfect society (a Utopia or Shangri-Lai) shape your
generation, and in some way you are to embody or express these
ideals. New communal sharing, a new spirit of all-of-us-together is
Pisces Rising and Neptune in Pisces
Your Neptune is in Pisces as well: There is a deeply spiritual or
religious impulse in your generation, which in some way you embody
or personify. Whether or not you think of yourself as "religious",
your affinity with the intangible, unseen, subtle aspects of reality
makes you a muse or channel of inspiration for others. There is also
a calling for self sacrifice or self martyrdom.
A Spiritual Interpretation of Pisces Rising
The following interpretation of Pisces Rising is from
Your Spiritual Path Report.
"The symbol for your rising sign is two fishes, bound
together but moving in opposite directions. These fish represent
your soul nature and your form nature. You have a form nature in
order to experience the growth of your soul, yet the two can seem to
struggle against each other. You find that pursuing your own
personal material desires does not resolve this struggle, but only
deepens it. You need to find a spiritual path that allows you both
to satisfy your personal needs and desires, and to satisfy your
spiritual yearning for significance.
How to accomplish this balance? You can focus first on your
instinctual nature. You find that you usually have a feeling about
what to do in any situation, but you sometimes listen to other
people instead of paying attention to your inner daimon. One way to
allow this inner voice its say is to take time each day to isolate
yourself and listen. Listening to the sound of water can focus your
mind and let your inner voice be heard.
On the physical plane you are drawn to mediumship - your psychic
senses perceive a lot that other people overlook. As you begin to
listen more deeply, you find that your role is that of mediator
between the seen and unseen worlds. You can sympathize with the
difficulties of others, and you can synthesize the feelings and
motivations that can help them. As you develop this skill, you will
find that you are no longer operating from the instinctual level,
but now use your intellect to discern on both planes and to
synthesize the information you gather.
Probably your major problem is your psychic sensitivity. You need
to work with this ability on the intellectual level so that you can
use it effectively, instead of being its victim. Your sign is
associated with the feet. Forward progress involves learning how to
walk, both physically and psychically, through the obstacles before
Pisces Ascendant from the Cosmo Natal Report:
"You are a gentle, sensitive person with a deep understanding of
people and a very tolerant, accepting, nonjudgmental approach
towards life. In a noisy, competitive atmosphere you are often
receding and withdrawn for you are not an aggressive, forceful
person, and you intensely dislike conflict. In fact you tend to be
somewhat passive, to wait, watch, observe, feel and know much - but
to act little. Letting things resolve or work themselves out in
their own way, rather than directing or forcing your will upon them,
is often your way of dealing with problems.
You may have a deeply religious or spiritual feeling about life, not
in the orthodox sense necessarily, but an intuitive sense of the
immensity and underlying oneness of all life, which makes so many
human aspirations and striving seem rather unimportant. You need
peaceful surroundings in order to flourish, and periods of quiet
solitude are essential for your emotional balance and well-being.
You are also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any
fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a
child you probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever
others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of your
imagination and fantasy was also very real to you, a place to escape
to when the outer world became too harsh, demanding, or simply
Because you are very giving and forgiving, people in need gravitate
to you, sensing your sympathetic nature. Often you will continue to
give to a person even when you realize they are taking advantage of
you or becoming overly dependent upon you. You overlook and make
excuses for other peoples' weaknesses, and for your own as well.
Discrimination and self-discipline are not your strong points.
Though you may be as intelligent as anyone, you do not really have a
rational, logical approach toward life, and trying to reach you
through logical arguments is often futile. Your feelings, intuition,
and heart, not your head, lead you, which may infuriate or bewilder
your more rational friends. You certainly recognize that there is
much more to life than can be explained intellectually and
categorized into neat little boxes, and you have an open, receptive
attitude toward such areas as psychic phenomena, telepathy,
parapsychology, etc. You are not as structured and rigid in your
attitudes as many people are, which enables you to see many
different points of view and to accept all of them as valid. This
can lead to vagueness, uncertainty, and confusion on your part - or
to a very flexible and holistic way of approaching any issue."
