Using the Planetary Aspects and Transits program we find that at 6 am GMT March 14, 2012, Venus and Jupiter are exactly conjunct (in Taurus), and each of them forms a close-to-exact grand trine with Mars (in Virgo) and Pluto in Capricorn. All of the aspects are close-to-exact, in the sense of being less than 20 arc minutes from exact.
When aspects of astrological trines become exact it can be a cause for major world event such as the Japanese tsunami and the Libyan uprising.
I hope you’ll enjoy this post as much as I enjoyed putting it together. It’s a continuation of our Leadership through the Signs series featuring Piscean Albert Einstein. From our past posts we’ve gleaned some essential qualities of the Piscean temperament which I’ve listed below. For each of these Piscean qualities I’ve included a quote by or about Albert Einstein which elucidates the keywords.

Most of the Einstein quotes I found in Wikiquotes and are sourced there. There are a couple of other sources I’ve cited as well. Have fun with this look at this fascinating Piscean.
1. Pisceans operate from an instinctual, connected space, tapped right in to the wisdom of all.
I was sitting in a chair in the patent office at Bern when all of sudden a thought occurred to me: If a person falls freely he will not feel his own weight. I was startled. This simple thought made a deep impression on me. It impelled me toward a theory of gravitation.
2. Pisceans find freedom through spiritual orientation.
Try and penetrate with our limited means the secrets of nature and you will find that, behind all the discernible concatenations, there remains something subtle, intangible and inexplicable. Veneration for this force beyond anything that we can comprehend is my religion. To that extent I am, in point of fact, religious.
A human being is a part of the whole, called by us “Universe”, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest — a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.

As the Republican Party is serving up two Pisces sun presidential candidates (Romney and Perry), I wanted to take a look at past Piscean presidents. Of our 43 presidents, there have been four with sun in Pisces:
- George Washington (1789-1797)
- James Madison (1809-1817)
- Andrew Jackson (1829-1837)
- Grover Cleveland (1885-1889, 1893-1897)
The 18th and 19th centuries were better environments for Piscean US presidents. The 20th century produced none. Maybe the 21st century will see a return of this mutable water sign in the White House.

Pisces, the Ocean and Your Feet
I just spent some time by the sea. Large bodies of water are known to soothe the soul, if songs and poems are to be trusted.
But what I wonder is whether it’s the soul that’s being soothed or simply our feet?
Toes in the sand
For many of us, our feet and toes spend their lives in cramped shoes. If at the office all of your colleagues were to take their shoes off at once, the staff would recoil in smell and the view of sweaty, ugly, wrinkled and abused feet.
At the beach, our toes and feet are free! They are soothed in sand and cleansed in water. Going barefoot on the beach is like going naked – a sensuous and divine pleasure.
As I crossed a Florida street barefoot, the inner demon of my childhood nurse neighbor rang in my inner ear – there are so many germs on the ground!
I don’t care, my feet said, we want freedom! We never want to wear shoes again!
At the beach, everyone’s feet are beautiful. The repulsion feet can cause in daily life is eradicated at the beach.

Andrew Jackson (March 15, 1767 – June 8, 1845) was the seventh President of the United States (1829–1837). Based in frontier Tennessee, Jackson was a politician and army general who defeated the Creek Indians at the Battle of Horseshoe Bend (1814), and the British at the Battle of New Orleans (1815). A polarizing figure who dominated the Second Party System in the 1820s and 1830s, as president he dismantled the Second Bank of the United States and initiated ethnic cleansing and forced relocation of Native American tribes from the Southeast to west of the Mississippi River. His enthusiastic followers created the modern Democratic Party. The 1830–1850 period later became known as the era of Jacksonian democracy.
