Horoscope Pisces 1st Decanate
The Neptune-decanate of Pisces is pictured among the constellations by CEPHEUS—the King—whose foot rests upon the immovable Pole Star. He holds aloft a scepter cut from the Tree of Life, and his crown is surmounted by seven globes representing the seven planets and the septenary law in nature.
People born under this section of the sky are naturally interested in understanding Nature, particularly in its psychic and spiritual aspects. They are mystics, to the manor born, and seek truth not so much through the methods of exact science and reason as through the exercise of their psychic faculties. They readily become seers, and have a natural aptitude for grasping the esoteric interpretation of all phenomena. This ability to recognize the truth through the “inner response’ becomes of value in the world of affairs in connection with secret-service work of all kinds. They are detectives of the highest order, whether their talents be directed to social conditions, or to the wider mysteries of universal relations.
Ramkrishna, the famous Yogi, whose influence over the Vedanta Philosophy was so great and beneficial, was born when the Sun was here. Dr. Richard Hodgson, whose physical researches led him to investigate the phenomena connected with H. P. Blavatsky, was born when the Moon was in this decanate. And Wm. Lilly, best of the older authorities on horary astrology, had this portion of the zodiac on the Ascendant at his birth. It is the decanate of VERITY.

Agrippa’s Description of the Decan:

Alan Leo: 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.
