Progressed Ascendant in Pisces
This will bring some trouble; the native will be overanxious and inclined to worry. For it will bring him into a more gloomy, brooding, and melancholic side of his nature, and thus make him liable to give way to depression and despondency; this tendency must be combated by a firm will.
He will now have many experiences that will be far from pleasant, and will come in contact with persons whose influence will not be beneficial. To those who are progressive it will bring a keen love of animals, or dumb life, causing also an awakening of the deeper sympathies, with a desire to help all who suffer; and in any case the native will now begin to be more hospitably inclined, with a far wider sympathy for others than formerly.
It is not in any sense a fortunate period (unless at birth Jupiter was very well aspected and the Sun between the fourth and seventh houses), and if the directions are not good it will bring sorrow and some confinement, which will be imposed upon the native by circumstances. If the directions are good its effect will not be so evil, but a hampering or restrictive influence of some kind there is sure to be.
Progressed Ascendant in 1st Decanate of Pisces
If the progressed ascendant is in the first decanate of Pisces (0 degrees to 9 degrees and 59 minutes), the general interpretation above applies.
Progressed Ascendant in 2nd Decanate of Pisces
If the progressed ascendant is in the second decanate of Pisces (10 degrees to 19 degrees and 59 minutes), the general interpretation for Progressed Ascendant in Pisces applies, as well as this:
This will make the native more than usually sensitive, and very sympathetic. He will now experience some domestic troubles and will feel very keenly home affairs, which will affect the life greatly.
Under this progressed ascendant he will form some romantic attachment, yet will tenaciously hold on to any engagement that he may have previously entered into. He will experience many strange events affecting the emotional side of the nature; for the personal feelings will be very keen, and may in fact tend to become hyper-sensitive.
It is not a good period on the whole, but some advantages may be gained in connection with psychic affairs.
The native will be rather too mediumistic or receptive to the influence of others, the effects of which he will fell very keenly; hence he should endeavour to create a more independent spirit and cultivate more self-reliance. For he will certainly need it when the directions are evil.
Progressed Ascendant in 3rd Decanate of Pisces
If the progressed ascendant is in the third decanate of Pisces (20 degrees to 29 degrees and 59 minutes), the general interpretation for Progressed Ascendant in Pisces applies, as well as this:
This will tend to bring deaths and sorrows into the native’s life: he will be rather anxious, inclined to worry and fret, and to be too easily affected if affairs “go wrong.” There will be a danger of his becoming somewhat jealous and resentful, and he should therefore endeavour to keep the lower nature will under control.
This period will prove a rather trying time all round, and he should do all he can to avoid giving way to any of the evil tendencies that the directions may indicate, for the emotional and passional nature will be re-awakened.
It will be a good period, however, for psychic development but only if the mind is not too much absorbed in material things; for unless good directions are operating it is apt to cause the native to be too easily influenced by others, and hence as easily affected by degraded and impure conditions and surroundings as by the highest and most spiritual psychic influences.
He should do all he can to awaken the self-controlled and dignified side of this decanate, so as to strengthen the sign Pisces, which is always more or less weak, being a sign to which humanity as a whole is unable as yet properly to respond.
