George Harrison, a Pisces Sun, was called the mystical soul of the band by fellow-Beatle John Lennon. I just saw the 2011 documentary about him, Living in the Material World -- a real treat with a lot of never-seen footage and Harrison's own photos and home movies.
It includes an early version of the song Awaiting on You All with the lyrics:You don't need no love in
You don't need no bed pan
You don't need a horoscope or a microscope
To see the mess that you're in
If you open up your heart
You will know what I mean
We've been polluted so long
Now here's a way for you to get clean
That way to get clean is to chant mantras. The documentary follows his path as a seeker, as it intertwined with music. He had a mentor in Ravi Shankar, the master sitar player (shown here), who passed away at 92 in December (2012). There's a scene where Ravi says it's through music, that you can touch the heart most directly.
I found a critical couple of comments this morning on the site, one on Scorpio: Keeping Your Own Secrets. Reader unknown says, "stop saying everything about Scorpios it's not a secret anymore just leave us alone !! we need to keep it a secret please every Scorpio need to understand how much important is this ....."
But let me assure you unknown, that astrology is just a tool to understand yourself and others better. And it's just one way to think about who you are, and it has its limits. I like this critical quote from Sri Chinmoy, "Before one accepts spirituality, astrology is very powerful, like a lion. Then when one enters into a deeper spiritual life, astrology becomes a tiny household cat."
It's a stepping stone, a way to see your energies with some distance. It's an incredible tool on the path, but I don't think it's the most profound way to know yourself and be known. As this documentary makes clear, music when expressed through the soul, is a step beyond.Anwar Hussein/Getty Images
