More Wizards: Two Fish Upon A Star

A wizened one perches comfortably on the banks of the cosmic stream, angling his star-studded line into the celestial pool that is strewn with timeworn tales of all shapes and sizes.

Two fish swim eternally through the heavens, bound together by stories of these stars told a million times and a million ways. The ancient Greeks saw them as Aphrodite and her son, Eros, who were bathing by a river when a frightening monster, Typhon, approached. To escape-and remain unseparated-they transformed themselves into a pair of fish bound together by a stream of stars. Romans tell the same tale of Venus and her son Cupid. Even earlier civilizations knew them as the constellation of the two tails; the Goddess Anunitum and Simmah, linked to symbolize the rivers Tigris and Euphrates. The cradle of civilization, this was the domain of the moon-goddess.

The moon pulls playfully on the tether of the two fish. The sigil of Pisces serves as perfect bait, representing both two fishes and two crescent moons; one waxing, one waning. Some celestial fish tales also see one arc symbolizing the finite consciousness of mankind, the other arc the consciousness of the universe. But it is the line between the arcs-representing earth-where the spiritual and material spheres of life meet.
