Okay, so we’ve arrived at Pisces, ruled by Neptune, the planet of dissolution, named for the god of the sea, the planet of non-material existence. And yes we have gotten to the point of the story where someone has “died” only to show up a few days later sporting some spiffy stigmata.
But not only has he not died but now apparently nobody else who believeth in him will either, which is neat. Pisces’ motto is I believe. Belief precedes proof. Science has now proven that all existence is really non-material, that matter is just dense energy. And that energy can neither be created nor destroyed. Something the ancient Zodiac seemed to know along. So none of us are really going anywhere. The point is moot. Immaterial.
We simply pass beyond the veil of illusion, through Salome’s seven colored scarves, over the RoyGBiv to Oz or Nirvana—Kurt Cobain was/is a Pisces—the immaterial universe being right here all the time. Pisces’ opposite facing fish portray the two-way street of birth and death, in limbo or utero—the name of a Nirvana album—Pisces being the mutable-water sign, the primordial soup from whence we came and to which we return.
Jesus was a Pisces like James Taylor Lou Reed Kurt Cobain George Harrison and Victor Garber. The Jesus Fish. The Pisces fish are the totems of Aphrodite, called Mari, and her son Eros. Mari is Mary whose della robbia blue gown fringed in white is the sea fringed with foam. Eros was at once the oldest of all the gods and yet an eternal babe. Kurt Cobain, Eros is Love. Jesus is Love. Energetic Love. Spiritual Love. That which connects us all. Close your eyes. Imagine, believe, that you are pure energy, letting your notions of matter dissolve. And feel yourself, as molecules, as atoms, as protons, as neutrons, hadrons, quarks, as pure energy, sharing the same primordial soup as the rest of us.
Typos happen—I don’t have time or an intern to edit.*
