Pisces – Zodiac sign of Mystery, Feelings and Water.

As you might have noticed when looking at my artworks, the water element related to the Zodiac sign of Pieces, is close to my heart and often featured in my work.
We are presently under the influence of Pisces since this zodiac sign, which means Fishes in Latin, is running from February 19 to March 20.
It relates to change, movement and to feelings.
Pieces are very sensitive, emotional people. At their best, they are very dedicated, like to sacrifice for others and are demanding little for themselves.
They like to dream and sometimes they might feel somehow disconnected from the reality. Other people could find them unrealistic or unpractical, somehow mysterious and hard to know.
In Greek mythology this sign was related to Venus and her son, Eros. It is ruled by the planets Jupiter and Neptune.

I love water and swimming in clean waters of seas, rivers and pools. I also like taking long walks along the beach, hiking beside rivers, lakes and mountain streams, or admiring waterfalls and dipping in healing springs. In my artworks I often feature nymphs – mythological beings related to water element, or depict water in various forms.
Water – Symbolism and Rituals

Water not only cleans and purifies but is also related to emotions and even to the subconscious mind. It is one of the basic elements on our planet, and without it, there wouldn’t be any life. It is also one of the most important elements in many myths and rituals celebrated in various cultures. In particular, it relates to Spring and to a new life.
In Poland, my country of origin, there was a pagan custom of drowning so called “Marzanna” – a doll dressed in woman’s clothing. This ritual was representing the burial of winter, or perhaps of the goddess of death and it had place in spring, usually in March. In some areas of Poland this old pagan custom is still alive today.

Water and Music, Thoughts and Feelings – How they Can Affect It.

It is also amazing that it was recently discovered that water seems to react to our feelings, thoughts and even to music and actually changes its structure. These astonishing changes could be well observed on frozen water crystals. Read more about this very interesting research in Dr. Masaru Emoto’s interview
You can also read Dr.Masaru Emoto’s book “The Message from Water”, or watch this short YouTube video with several samples of the water crystals and how they were affected by music, thoughts and emotions.
This can make us think to pay more attention to our own feelings and thoughts and those of others. We should really consider to what music and other sounds we are listening, since we are mostly made of water…
