As a Pisces with a birthday on March 17, I have discovered a clear connection between mermaids, sea creatures, Water Goddesses and Pisces women. The mythos of the Mermaid reflects the ebb and flow of the changing tides, and represents our deepest knowing and intuition. Many Water Goddesses are reflections of the alternating phases of the Moon, and guide our emotional depths and empathic talents. Pisces is represented by fish swimming in opposite directions - a symbol for the duality of life and our ability to integrate experiences. The amorphous nature of Pisces can be elusive, but like Mermaids and Water Goddesses, many Pisces women evoke the otherworldly qualities of the mysterious, and align with the archetype of the mystic. Please enjoy my original art celebrating the Mermaids and Water Goddesses of Pisces~! Available as a deluxe art card on archival paper that can also be matted and framed.
All the Great Mothers are born from the primeval ocean or the watery abyss, the primordial womb of life from which all created forms emerge. The ideogram for the Sumerian goddess Nammu was the sea; Isis was born from all-wetness, Hathor is the watery abyss of heaven, Nut, the sky goddess, lets her milk fall as rain, and Aphrodite is born from the foam of the sea. The brightly painted mermaids flinging their arms and hair to the winds of every quarter on the prows of ships, may be a folk remnant of this inheritance.
