fish symbols

The constellation Pisces comprises a set of dim and scattered stars that trace the images of two widely separated fish joined by a knotted cord. One fish, swimming upward, faces east toward Aries, while the other fish swims westward toward Aquarius along the plane of the ecliptic. The directions of motion of the two fish form a cross, the symbol of the Christian religion – the upright line of the cross representing spirit and the horizontal line signifying matter. Astrologists say that the Age of Pisces (cf.) coincided with the birth of Jesus.

Other notes: Dharma wheel; Early circular ichthys [Iota Chi Theta Upsilon Sigma-greek word for fish] looks like the Dharma wheel. Wheel appears in several panels of AoE, F&B and Synthesis.
