Pisces as Christ, or Soul, Principal
Pisces is the sign of unification. At the center of our lives on Earth and on our journey to further and further unfoldment of consciousness, it is the aspect of all things being electrically polarized that creates the tension that engenders the chaos that fuels the challenge within each of us to rise phoenix-like out of duality into a field of unified coherence that we call harmony, peace, or God. It is the sign of Pisces, the two fishes connected by a silver and gold cord, that presents us with duality, yet also offers in its Neptunian waters a sense that unity is a rapturous possibility. In esoteric literature the sign of Pisces is substituted for several other words: the Christ principle, the Soul, and the developing of consciousness.
Christ is a word that brings forth varied responses. For some, there’s a mental image of a man who lived 2,000 years ago in Israel who carried, was nailed to, and was hung from a cross on a mountain top, which, at his death, was enveloped in thunder and lightning. Others respond with a cynical disbelief that there was/is such a person called Christ. And a third response &emdash; usually from fallen away Christians &emdash; is a complete turning away from the word. Each response is valid in that it brings to the fore a certain stage in humanity’s religious development. But these responses do not explain the form, function, and purpose of that which we call the Christ principle.
Christ is not one individual person. Christ is not Jesus, and Christ is not Jesus’s last name. Christ is a principle and an attitude of unification. Christ is a word signifying a position of leadership (a job description) given to certain divine individuals whose task it is to initiate great harmony through a process of magnetic attraction. Christ is an energy pattern that blends diverse and opposite polarities into integrated wholeness. In humanity’s case, the polarities to be unified are Spirit (Father, divine masculine) and matter (Mother, divine feminine). Christ is another word for the Soul, that point of light between, yet containing both, Spirit and matter.
Christ is the Path home that blooms within us, felt first as a seeking and an aspiration for something greater than ourselves. Later this aspiration transforms into Love &emdash; for family, partner, nature, community, knowledge, and God. Christ is the principle that aspires, pursues, reaches, finds, and eventually blends with that which we are seeking. The
Christ principle originates in the star Sirius, which blends its streams of blue, orange, and green electrical fires with a particular star in the Big Dipper called Ray 2. From this star ray the cosmic fiery force penetrates Pisces, and then enters our Sun, where the originating energy is transformed into magnetic radiations of light which fall to Earth. On Earth, Christ is the point of divine fire in all living things. The purpose of this inner fire is to connect Spirit (the unseen) with matter (the seen). In nature, this Christ principle gives life its cosmic rhythm, the result of which is an ever-present, coherent life force. This point of life, connecting Spirit with matter, is the pure, radiant, harmonious vibration called the Soul.
And, lastly, Christ is the second aspect of God. A long time ago, when God the Father was getting to know Himself, He looked out and saw a reflection of Himself. This reflection He called the Mother. Love grew between them, and the activity of pulsating love between the Father and the Mother created a force vibrating between them. This love was called the Son (Sun). The Christ is the mediating aspect between God the Father and God the Mother, and the Christ completes the triangle, or trinity, of the three aspects of God
