Duality is in the air. This year, Pisces (Adar in Hebrew) appears twice on the calendar, doubling our opportunity to access the uplifting, healing Light that resides in the supernal, or celestial, sphere. This is our time to pull that positive Piscean energy down into the earthly plane to help elevate the world and bring deep, lasting happiness to ourselves and to others.
As a dual sign (with two fish swimming in opposite directions), Pisces inherently embodies the Kabbalistic idea of "holding opposites." One fish may be moodily combing the murky depths of the water; the other may be jumping out of the pond for joy. This illustrates a fundamental concept both in philosophy and in many religious studies--that everything in the world has a balancing, or opposing, side. Front and back... darkness and light... up and down... above and below. As psychologist and spiritual teacher Dr. David Sanders explains, we cannot embrace "Wholeness" without also embracing the notions of "separateness, brokenness, and all other paradoxes and opposites." No idea, object, or situation exists without another side or perspective.
