Walking Through the Stars Zodiac Sampler - Pisces Complete!

I finished up Pisces last night!

Because I get asked frequently, the fabric is 32 count Belfast in Black Magic from Under The Sea Fabrics with the flosses and silks from Mo's Sale. I absolutely love this sampler and am sad to put it away for another month!

As with the past months, there was interesting Pisces information included with this month's installment.

Pisces – February 19 – March 20  Pisces called Ichtyes ("the fishes") by the Greeks, "Pisces" being the Latin translation.  

Pisces is caring and forgiving, awash in feelings, impressions and moods. They're a sign of complexity, but one strong inclination is toward retreat. This enables Pisces to be with the waves, and calm the inner waters (the psyche). Some are healers, artists, performers, musicians, or work in relief fields for people or animals. 

At the extreme edges, Pisces is the lost child, easily victimized, and unable to establish boundaries of Self.  

Pisces thrives when their multi-dimensionality is expressed through work and relationships. Their dreamlife is as real as their day in the topside world. They become empowered when they find enough solitude, and draw on their strong mystical connections.
