Astrology & Sun Signs – Pisces Sun, by Itself, Has Nothing to do With Being Spiritually Adept
A person born with a Pisces Sun sign was born approximately February 18th to March 20th. The times and days that the Sun changes signs varies each year.
The idea that all Pisces Sun people are "older souls," or "advanced souls" is popular, but based on our past life regression and astrology findings, it's completely invalid.
A Pisces Sun has nothing to do with whether or not a person is here for his or her last incarnation or that they have "gone around the zodiac," experiencing each of the Sun signs in previous incarnations.
One Pisces Sun person might be a spiritual novice and another could be close to being a spiritual master, and just looking at the Sun sign won't tell you which or what degree in between. The sign in which the Sun resides is a very obvious part of the horoscope, but only a fraction of the comprehensive charts.
Yes, the sign of Pisces could be considered the most developed water sign (the others being Scorpio and Cancer) in connection to the qualities associated with water, but comprehensive astrology is much more than just water, earth (Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn), air (Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius), and fire (Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius) signs.
By highly developed or most advanced, someone might say, "In relation to what?" In this case (Pisces) it's compassion, and emotional understanding, if you want to simplify things and take a surface approach. But the sign of Pisces is not often linked to, for instance, assertiveness and drive, so it's not the most developed sign in that sense.
The topic of the sign the Sun is in and how it relates to being more spiritually advanced than other Sun signs is fairly common.
It's important to understand that each planet rules one or more signs and the energy symbolized by a planet is more potent when it's in the sign it rules. The Sun in Pisces doesn't do anything to boost the Sun's symbolic greatness, thereby making someone more "advanced," not considering the rest of the information in the comprehensive charts.
If you want to focus only on the Sun sign for advantage look to Aries or Leo Sun (Sun rules Leo and Aries, is dignified in Leo and exalted in Aries). Sun in Aquarius and Libra are opposites to Sun in Leo and Aries, respectively, and are considered afflictions in the charts.
The sign of Pisces is ruled by Jupiter and Venus (and Neptune in modern astrology). Hence, if a person has either of those planets in Pisces, the sign of Pisces could be considered to have heightened significance in that person's charts.
When considering how spiritually adept someone is, there are many, many astrological and numerological aspects and patterns to consider while doing a comprehensive analysis.
A good place to start is the 9th house of the natal astrology figure. Begin by looking at the planets in that house, the characteristics associated with those planets, the cusp sign ruler, the qualities relating to that sign, the planet or planets that rule that sign, the aspects to the planets in that house and to the cusp of that house, and at the relative health of all planets involved.
As an example, if a person has the Sun in Pisces on the cusp of Aquarius, and that Sun is in a weak house, is harshly aspected by malific planets, and their 9th house is a mess, signifying a warped sense of spirituality, this person won't fit the "Pisces is the most advanced sign" concept at all.
To sum up, just as we cannot judge how spiritually advanced a person is by their physical appearance, we cannot assume someone is more or less spiritually aware or wise simply based on their Sun sign. A soul playing the role of a homeless person may be making her last appearance in physical form on Earth. Likewise, a "guru" who dresses the part and teaches spiritual principles, yet who doesn't consistently follow those principles and lacks integrity privately, may be creating plenty of karma for himself to balance in future lifetimes.
