“Everything in the universe has a purpose. Indeed, the invisible intelligence that flows through everything in a purposeful fashion is also flowing through you.” – Wayne Dyer
Cards: 8 of Swords, Knight of Cups, 3 of Pentacles
Pallas Athena sprung into life from the forehead of her father, Zeus, fully clothed in battle gear and ready to fuck some shit up. She is the goddess of Wisdom, Victory and Strategy. Warriors prayed to her for success in battle, and academics paid her homage so she could bring them illumination. Through her, we learn how to connect information and use it to our advantage. Athena teaches us how the pieces fit to form the whole. Unfortunately for Athena, her fellow deities pretty much ignored her as a sexual object. Because of this, Athena’s babies are the babies of the mind. She shows us where our greatest ideas may take place, but she can also be obsessive. What part of your life do you ceaselessly investigate in? Where are you gifted with the ability to make swift connections?
So, what does it mean now that she is drifting into Piscean waters? Pallas in Pisces is actually my natal placement for this asteroid, so I may be able to intuit a thing or two about this energy. The combination of 8 of Swords, Knight of Cups, and 3 of Pentacles, tells me that this energy is the ability to see the spiritual building blocks of the world. Pallas in Pisces tells me that we will be able to have confidence in our creative and spiritual connections. The world political climate will become increasingly more idealistic (Pisces rules religion and spirituality, so expect more of that to be brought up as well). The fantastic part about this energy is that Athena is forced to FEEL, not THINK in Pisces. We go from over rationalizing our strategy to feeling out intuitively how we should move toward our victories. This surge of creative intelligence will be amazing for unraveling old patterns that have us blindfolded in regards to our next move. Pallas in Pisces coupled with the Knight of Cups tell us that your ability to charm your way out of a situation will dramatically increase. This is great fuel for those who are already swimming in the waters of creative intelligence.
Pallas in Pisces will give us the opportunity to explore the architecture of our spiritual world. I bet that we will be seeing a lot more synchronicities, more spiritual groups coming together due to realizing connections, and an overall merging of people’s spiritualties. The fish make Pallas a lot softer than she usually is, giving her the ability to have insight on healing and creative interpretation. This is the position of the mystic and psychic and the ability to see spirit where others do not. This is where Pallas shows us how the spirit world connects to the bigger picture, and how fantasy and creativity play a role in bridging the causal and acausal worlds.
