The world of fashion is a Neptunian art form that reveals the collective’s longing for transcendence through color, texture, pattern — fad and facade. How Earthlings costume their bodies says everything about where they are heading. All dressed up with places to (seemingly) go.
As Neptune moves through each sign of the zodiac you can track cultural projections of hope and liberation onto the various themes associated with each sign of the zodiac. And there’s a very fine line between madness and spiritual visions, delusions, etc.
For instance, Neptune’s transit through Aquarius earmarked our infatuation with technology and all of the idiotic expectations that involve computers, robotics, information manipulation, etc. Technology was to have made the world infinitely better, but still billions of people go to bed starving each night.
As the planet moved into Pisces — a sign associated with fantasy, religion, hypnosis, and psychosis — Judaic-Christianity’s hegemony as one of the central ideologies that, well, propels psychosis around the globe, began to wane. Suddenly atheism was hip and people turned to straight-up fantasy to channel their now wayward spiritual impulses.
Politically it appears that Christianity remains a dominant theme in American life, but as Neptune often does, that is a distortion that has morphed into the political propaganda that masquerades as Jesus stuff. Recently a church in the South held a blessing ceremony for AR-15 semi-automatic rifles. Shit like that tells you how debauched it’s become.
The theater of Gucci’s 2018 fall line of fashions has captured this amalgam-ic decay in eyepopping, polychromatic detail. Pisces, often dubbed the ‘zodiac’s garbage heap’ has never looked more fabulous. Here everything religious, including old hippie dalliances with Tibetan Buddhism and the 9/11 terrorists’ dreams for a roomful of virgins — is jettisoned over the event horizon.
Bring on the final season of Game of Thrones!
