Adapted Sagittarius and Pisces
Difference Sagittarius-Pisces: Excitation strength versus Inhibition strength
S+Associating Excitation strength for Sagittarius: the missioner. The associating Excitation strength reaches its climax: one establishes connections, associations or correlations between fields that seem the farthest apart, the most heterogeneous. Sensitivity to general interactions. Wide-ranging cooperations, universal understanding. Disappearance of the individual in his social or natural environment: one just becomes a link of a vast chain. Open, active and generous sociability; readiness to get out of one’s way so that the universal should prevail over the particular.
S−Eliminating Inhibition strength for Pisces: the uncatchable. The indifference of the Inhibition strength is all the stronger that it must withstand the growth of daytime — which will become dominant in Aries, the following Sign. Not letting oneself being touched, reached or shaken by anything nor anyone. Deconditioning oneself, making a clean sweep of all the pressing solicitations from the outside world. Slipping out of the usual ways of reacting, loving or thinking. Withdrawing from the surrounding world so as to be fully present to oneself, to the absolute one is aiming at. The appearance of adaptation to everything actually masks a total indifference.
Difference Sagittarius-Pisces: Inhibition quickness versus Inhibition slowness
Q−Inhibition quickness for Sagittarius: the sophisticated. A consummate art of sidestepping, well-knit avoidance tactics, sophisticated people skills: one handles with ease, skill and style the pawns of socioculture, one can opportunely mediate and withdraw, one can advocate a total opening while allowing some selection mechanisms; one can expand indefinitely the field of possible cooperations on an abstract level — but not with just anyone on a practical level, hence an enlightened elitism.
Sl−Inhibition slowness for Pisces: the placid. The monolithic, locked, unshakeable defence systems are an efficient anti-environment barrier: peaceful, tenacious and serene refusal of the external hubbubs, quiet and progressive decantation, absolute immobility out of silent rejection of any impulsive reaction, indifferent placidity towards everything that’s going on around oneself — allowing to give free rein to one’s intuition.
Difference Sagittarius-Pisces: Sense of syntheses versus Sense of opposites
SSSense of syntheses for Sagittarius: the unifier. One is in search of an endlessly open macro-synthesis, with all its elements interdependently and flexibly connected to each other. Everything holds together, from microcosm to macrocosm, from top to down, from left to right, from the Earth to the Sky: universalism, cosmopolitanism, encyclopaedism. It’s not even “it takes all sorts to make a world”, it’s “the world is made of a whole”. One is determined to stick to the big picture that absolutely rises above the usual dualities, rivalries, splits, distinctions and antagonisms. Liking for mixings, miscegenations and hybridizations; need to unite the whole personality into a harmonious and dynamic synthesis.
SOSense of opposites for Pisces: the invisible choice. Without really knowing exactly what one wants, one is able to perfectly, systematically and patiently eliminate, refuse and boycott what one doesn’t want. One postpones one’s response to opposing options. Until things settle out quietly and the way one must choose appears at the end of this decantation, one prefers edging one’s way between antagonisms, escaping too clear-cut dialectics, straddling the fence so as not to be trapped into simplistic dualisms. One wears out one’s adversaries by not responding. One lives in a static world where opposites are ever more equal, identical, yet different: there is a strong temptation trying to find a “third way” in order to transcend false oppositions.
Unadapted Sagittarius and Pisces
Difference Sagittarius-Pisces: Inhibition weakness versus Excitation weakness
w−Blocking Inhibition weakness for Sagittarius: the foolhardy. The blocking Inhibition weakness is at a peak: radical rebelliousness, lack of foresight, impatience, presumption, rashness. Being ready to all excesses, all immoderations; taking the most absurd or the riskiest bets. Trying to reach the unreachable star, running away towards the absolute, the infinity, the unlimited. The instinct of self-preservation is reduced to zero. One doesn’t accept any restriction, any normative framework, ceaselessly escaping from a fake prison so as to go towards an illusory freedom.
w+Expending Excitation weakness for Pisces: the forsaker. One has a hard time fighting, taking action, asserting oneself. Lethargic, apathetic, colourless behaviors; extreme passivity, excessive laziness, negligence, anxious refusal of the reality principle. Letting oneself being tossed around by the turbulent flow of circumstances, and come what may. Dependency, seclusiveness, immobility, despondency, inefficiency, powerlessness, oppressive incommunicability, deathly fear of having to confront oneself to the tough and real outside world.
Difference Sagittarius-Pisces: Unadapted Excitation slowness versus Unadapted Excitation quickness
sl+Unadapted Excitation slowness for Sagittarius: the megalomaniac. The need to organize and master applies to anything gigantic, immense, extraordinary, colossal. Imagination is carried away into mythomania, the delusion of being controlled, the search for greatness or for mythical heroism. Unquenchable quest for an insane power. Energizing identification to exceptional beings, or empty solemnity that impresses in order to hide the void of a spineless personality; vain hallucinated ambitions against a backdrop of ineffectualness to set oneself a realistic action framework.
q+Unadapted Excitation quickness for Pisces: the hysteric. The unadapted Excitation quickness is expressed more easily than for the Capricorn since it’s at the edge of adaptation (Aries). In the meanwhile, one can witness more or less restrained yet stormy passions, uncontrolled outbursts of anger, fits of blind rage, flushes of aggressivity, urges of hasty acting-out, all the more furious that they burst out involuntarily. Volatile mood that switches from apathy to revolted spite.
Difference Sagittarius-Pisces: Ultraparadoxical phase versus Egalitarian phase
UPUltraparadoxical phase for Sagittarius: the tower of Babel. One wants to integrate and make cooperate the most irreducibly antagonist sides, the most radically alien viewpoints. Great mishmash, ridonkulous associations. What’s normally inhibiting becomes stimulating: attraction for danger, Russian roulette, silly gambles, exhausting one’s supplies with relish. Social hyper-conditioning while aiming at originality: the parlor revolutionary, the self-righteous nonconformist, actions that are inconsistent with the displayed ethics. Excessively playing down one’s enemies: ending up playing their game by dint of telling oneself that one can set the cats among the pigeons provided that everyone cooperates with civility.
EPEgalitarian phase-clash of opposites for Pisces: the nothing-at-all. Everything is equivalent, equal, indifferent. One doesn’t mind anything either way. The world is flat, seamless, everything is just motionless order or disorder, absolute calm, infinite serenity. Hence an ultimate indifference, at best close to nirvana, at worst revealing of an absolute nihilism: passive non-choice ends up in being nothing in the whole, everything in the nothingness, and nothing at all. One is peacefully waiting until it makes, breaks or bores, or until the clash of opposites shatters all the good or bad reasons one has or believes having to choose one’s side, one’s way, one’s destiny.
