Welcome!

I hope you find something interesting and informative on the pages inside. I have a passion for astrology that began at age 5!  I have studied many forms of astrology and Western Karmic Astrology and Evolutionary Astrology are my favorite so far.  Since astrology is an ever expanding wisdom there’s always a new idea or perspective on the horizon.

Through the years I’ve noticed the most challenging aspect of astrology for beginners is where to start.  Studying the twelve signs is the best place to begin so each month I provide the current placement for the Sun, but every sign is also applied to the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto and a plethora of other astral bodies, as well as the houses that make up a horoscope. Learning the twelve signs is quite simple and will open up a whole new way to see the world. Everything has a birth: your home, your car, your cat and, of course, you!

In addition to posting the sign of the month, I will also be writing about simple upcoming celestial events like Eclipses, Retrogrades, New and Full Moons, and Solstices and Equinoxes to add a little spice to the month and make learning astrology a little bit more interesting.  I’ll post these on my Facebook page as well.  If you’d like to join the site, please go to Jo’Ann Ruhl and you’ll get any monthly updates instantly!

The Sun enters Pisces on February 18, 2015 at 3:50 p.m. PST and 6:50 p.m. EST

Oh you beautiful mermaids and mermen! Will the human world ever understand your song? You sing of the visions you see while swimming in your dreams with the Angels!

Pisces is the twelfth sign of the Zodiac, they are the visionaries and illuminators of our world; they bring us light. Pisces is the ruler of our dreams and all the things we associate with dreaming. Its animal symbol is two fish, swimming in a circle as if to try to catch each other. The fish symbolize man’s two primary conscious states: lower consciousness or the “thinking” mind and higher consciousness or the “God/Universe mind”. Consider the thinking mind as the one you use every day; it learns to drive, read, and play card games. The God/Universe mind is intuitive and draws on wisdom. Pisces is here to teach us to connect or merge these two minds, but first they show us, by example, what it is to have them be in constant conflict.

Pisces is a water sign, but I consider it more like a cloud or bubbles in champagne, floating water! Pisces is always floating upward toward the God/Universe mind. There it finds itself “high”, blissfully feeling the ecstasy of unconditional love. Suddenly the earthly realm calls to them and they feel like they are slammed into their bodies to experience the unpleasant, conditional love of the physical world. Where would you rather be? The lesson is, we never really leave the spirit realm, we learn to draw it down into the physical realm consciously and raise the vibration by experiencing unconditional love here. Isn’t this the message of the mystics and saints?

Pisces represents spirituality actualized through consciousness. Once they learn to ground themselves and draw the spiritual energy to themselves, they then teach this to us. Pisces has a wide spectrum: it represents drug addicts, narcotics, addictions, and thieves, as well as mystics, saints, dreams, psychic visions and anesthesia.

Pisces are known for their ability to “walk a mile in someone’s shoes” as they are very empathic. They must guard against being sympathetic by taking on others feelings and problems.

Their ability to be “out of body” sometimes gets them labeled airheaded. One thing is sure about them, they may seem easy going and passive, but this is their super power; like a cloud they will float around any situation, just try catching a cloud sometime! They are actually very powerful because they have integrated all the lessons of the other eleven signs into their experience and now must master the final state of conscious awareness or awakening.
