The Pallas in Pisces Transit
The asteroid Pallas moved into the sign of Pisces on March 7, 2021, and will remain in Pisces until February 14, 2022. Under the sign of Pisces, strategy is approached with intuition. This is a type of thinking where innate feelings of “just knowing” what to do are likely. In fact, this is a time where being overly logical could actually backfire and make it more difficult for us to navigate in the strategic manner we desire. Pisces energy is relegated to following its intuition, and any Piscean will tell you that when they don’t follow their intuition they usually regret it. There is also a significant pattern-recognition associated with following intuition. During the Pallas in Pisces transit, many will discover that the more they follow their intuition the better they are at achieving their aims. It Is by using compassion and empathy with intuitive guidance that Pallas in Pisces is able to navigate strategically.
In terms of the healing energy, Pallas in Pisces understands that we are all One and connected through Source. No one is better or worse than anyone. We are all connected no matter our station in life. Pallas in Pisces considers healing for the collective because healing for one is healing for all because we are all One. Empathy is greatly enhanced during Pallas in Pisces, and there is this ability to harness emotional intelligence to tap into others psychically in order to heal ourselves and others. Because there is a lack of boundaries with Pisces energy, it is important to consider very carefully how we are utilizing these abilities to create an impact. When we choose to assist someone, perhaps we can consider why we are choosing to do so.
Why do we help those that we help? Are we seeking to fulfill some inherent ego desire? Are we really helping as efficiently as we think we are? Are there systems in place that make utilizing our intuitive nature to assist ourselves and others easier or complex? Are we really seeking to assist with an abundance of compassion or are we utilizing our own personal judgments when we assist others? Do we seek to help others unconditionally without detriment to ourselves, or do we find that in assisting others we end up being used? Are there conditions to charity and supposed compassion when helping certain people and even ourselves? These are just some questions to consider during this Pallas in Pisces transit.
Creatively, this is an excellent time to explore the arts to their fullest. From music to dance, film, and photography, Pisces is known for its well-developed creativity. Now is an excellent time to explore different realms of creativity as they may offer valuable insight into our own healing.
When Pallas Goes Retro in Pisces
The asteroid Pallas will go retrograde in the sign of Pisces from July 14, 2021, to November 8, 2021. During this time, it is important to consider how we utilize Neptune energy as part of our own personal strategies and thinking processes. As wonderful and spiritual as Neptune energy is, there is an undertow that has to be considered especially as it relates to strategic thinking and application. As with any other water sign, Pisces energy acts subversively. Oftentimes, achievement happens through the path of least resistance. Similar to water wearing down stone, putting out a fire, and/or evaporating to acclimate itself to air, Pisces energy is mutable so it has the specific ability to adapt to any environment. This is part of the strategic patterns related to Pallas in Pisces energy. In many ways, this adaptability allows it to function in various environments. In many ways, there is this manipulation of self in order to get ahead by molding oneself to the environment…similar to a chameleon.
During Pallas in Pisces retrograde, we may want to consider how we manipulate situations for our own benefit. Pisces’ ability to intuit makes it capable of understanding situations at their core thereby allowing them to mold themselves into what is needed for a particular advantage. This energy is neutral. However, it can be used in nefarious ways to achieve an end if so desired. Even some of the higher qualities of Pisces such as its intuitive nature, compassion, and empathy could be used as tactics and weapons in order to achieve a specific effect. This is the realm of understanding the asteroid Pallas and how we use specific zodiac energies in order to fight and/or gain an advantage without being physical. In the case of Pisces, intuition and empathy can be used as warfare.
Ultimately, Pallas transiting the sign of Pisces retrograde asks us to reconsider how we use Neptune energy as part of our personal strategies. How do we use Neptunian energy in the form of intuition, compassion, empathy, and the path of least resistance to get to where we want to be? How do we use these traits to help others? Are we really helping others, or are we utilizing intuitive faculties to gain an advantage by creating the perception that our actions and methods are “divinely guided”? These are just some things to reconsider during the retrograde of Pallas in Pisces.
