Once known as Haftorang, the fixed star known as Fomalhaut is known to many as ‘the star of dreams.’
There’s just one thing you should know…that’s a little bit misleading. Yes, Fomalhaut represents our fondest, most longed for dreams coming true. But to get there…?
To understand what the issues are here, let’s start with Fomalhaut being the most brilliant star in the constellation we know as Pisces. As a zodiac sign, Pisces often gets a bad rap – I’ve heard Pisces called everything from “the trash can of the zodiac” to “the distance by which we fail our own expectations.”
Frankly, I’m thinking that whoever said that had some issues with their emotions. Notice that I didn’t say emotional problems…that’s more like saying someone’s neurotic or unstable. And that’s not the point. What I’m getting at is that because Pisces is all about owning our emotions, the fact that everyone has emotions and that emotions are a healthy and necessary part of life, that suggests that the folks who came up with those labels…well,…maybe they aren’t so friendly about the whole ‘feeling thing’?
There are twelve signs in the zodiac. There are also four ‘elements’: air, earth, fire and water. That means that there are three signs in each element.
The third set of signs are universal, public and global. Sagittarius is universal fire – envisioning how things could work and finding out how to make them work, bringing things into being.
Capricorn is global earth: commerce, societal transactions and traditional methods of operating, social standing. Aquarius is the universal air sign in which we learn which groups we want to belong to, which we fit into and what it takes to be appreciated out there in the world.
Then there’s Pisces. Pisces is universal emotions. It’s all that we have in common with each other as human beings. It’s what we wish we were and what we don’t like (even loathe) about ourselves. It’s instinct and the ability to connect and ‘know’ without speaking. It’s the emotion of fantasy, the grief of loss, the anguish of betrayal, the ecstasy of reverence, belief, awe and success.
Pisces rips away that 'barrier’ that ‘holding emotions in check’ we all think is so important.
So Pisces is the sign of dreams – among other things. But all things Piscean, including those dreams…? They require that we bare ourselves to all that can be felt. Into all this comes the lore of the Royal Stars: success can be yours if you avoid one PARTICULAR human trait.
In Fomalhaut’s case, that ‘trait’ is corruption. By ‘corrupt’ we mean a dream which is ethical and moral, a dream which doesn’t have you succeeding at cost to others. It’s the quality of Pisces as a universal sign which makes it so important that your dream be ‘universally’ acceptable. In one of the interactive signs, the question would limited to just you and whoever you were dealing with – your lover, your boss, your bank, your project. But when you get to the third sign of every element, somehow the questions isn’t limited. Even if it’s a secret and only two people know that secret, there’s a universal level of ‘acceptability’ which is involved.
Then…into all this comes Fomalhaut, Royal Star of Persia. The dream of success or the success of the dream promised by Fomalhaut is all about our willingness to face our own emotionality through emotion-provoking experiences.
So much for those who avoid. And good luck to the ‘rose colored glasses’ tribe. Emotional realism is the Pisces challenge and the metaphysical equation here is solved by accepting your own emotions and those of people around you. From that comes realism and…remarkably…calm.
It’s the games we play with ourselves about what we ‘don’t have to deal with’ which end up tripping us up. Fomalhaut is one of the celestial mechanisms which we trip over…or make our slip-ups on.
Fomalhaut is roughly in opposition to Regulus – just as Antares is in opposition to Aldebaran. As the ‘Watcher of the South’ it’s position in Pisces is very fitting as ‘south’ – as a direction – is indicative of emotionality.
解答例↓ Hmm A is more human but B has its good sides too... I choose B because: 1. Human reproductive system so you can pass on your genes. 2. Fish brain so it's ethical to eat. Actually, wait, where on the body is the female reproductive system?
A of course, would be a companion to talk to. Unless the island has no food, then it would be easier to kill and eat B.
