Against the Tide: Goal Setting for Pisces

Against the Tide: Goal Setting for Pisces Photo credit: Jo Tracey

Beside my desk I have an ideas board. On it I pin article ideas I want to pitch to editors, phrases or character traits which I want to use in my novel, travel story ideas and potential blog posts. I also have a series of photos for locations that I am using in my novel that help me picture the scenes I am writing.

It’s all very organised, yet for the last month I have pitched exactly, wait for it, two story ideas- neither of which are even on the board, and one of which I have had a nibble on. Two. I have so many on there that I simply have no idea where to start. I’m thinking tomorrow that I might just shut my eyes and pick one.

Part of the problem is that I don’t really have a clearly defined direction, a goal as such. When I was being paid by someone else it was easy- work related goals were imposed, no decision required. Now? Well now, it’s different. Now my goals are “me” and Mine. A very wise coach has advised me that my starting place should be a vision board. I think I might spend this afternoon doing that- but maybe after I get that frangipani photo enlarged and in a frame for the bathroom...

Some signs are blessed with an innate focus that enables them to set goals with enviable ease- they are reading this and shaking their collective heads at me now. ‘What’s so hard about it?’ they say. ‘You set it and then it is a matter of one foot after the other.’ Others, quite simply, do not.

Pisces is one of those. It isn’t so much that we don’t know how to set goals, but rather that we often simply lose track of what they actually are. To say Pisces (or, for that matter, Pisces Rising or even Saturn in Pisces) is easily distracted is an understatement. Faced with limitless possibilities and an imagination that knows no bounds, how can we not stop along the way to check out the brightly coloured fish in this ocean of life.  And, if we happen to lose our way? We simply choose another route, another goal, another dream.

By far the biggest problem with our goals is our own sense of boundary. Where we begin and where we end is by no means clearly defined. Likewise how do we know that what we are aspiring to is actually our goal and not that of someone else. To say that Pisces is highly suggestible is another understatement. As a result we often take on the dreams of those we are close to as our own.

So with a questionable GPS to guide us, how do we know which direction we should be swimming in? We don’t, we feel it. Pisces only gets herself in trouble when she forgets to be guided by her heart and instead over thinks the situation.

Before getting in touch with your inner Virgo opposite and plotting the route, ask yourself a simple question- is this what you really want or is this something you think you want or that you should want or that your parents/partner/latest crush wants for you? Your amazing imagination will be able to visualise the outcome, so be very very sure of your answer before you commit.

Now...what was I doing again?
