A Piscean Escape from Westeros
As promised, I will continue with more Westerosi sun sign fun. I didn’t want to go this long without a post, but deciding to take six classes this semester really took a toll on my blogging. Thank gods for spring break. There was a lot of Piscean action going on not too long ago and it inspired me to write about Sansa Stark, who is the only Pisces I could think of so far. There don’t seem to be many in the seven kingdoms, so there is definitely something special about the maiden of Winterfell…
Unlike her courageous sister, Sansa prefers to escape the harsh realities of the world rather than face them. When I think of Pisceans, I think of a place where dreams and imagination take over, which can produce a wonderful creature, like sweet Sansa. She is gentle, kind and caring, refusing to believe that these traits cannot take her anywhere.
But this is the Game of Thrones.
Even as her family drops dead one by one, Sansa cannot let go of her dream. That one day she will be saved by some gallant knight. So she waits in her bed chamber, even after she is tortured by Joffrey, even after she is betrothed to a Lannister, the family that helped murder her mother and brother, she still waits. She continues to play the role of a dutiful wife to her imp husband, all the while dreaming that she will be rescued from all this.
True to Piscean nature, she refuses to believe that everyone in this world is as heartless as the ones she’s been so unfortunate to come across. Are there any good people in this world? Yes, but not all are good. This is the awful truth that Sansa is slowly learning. Taught by her virtuous parents that honor and duty is most important, the result was a purely good child, but also a very naive one. One thing the Starks did not teach, and seemed to be unaware of themselves, is that people lie and betrayl is common in the seven kingdoms, where many sell their souls for gold. However, like Arya, Sansa is her own person and although they both grew up in the same house hold, they continue to approach situations very differently. This is what makes astrology such an insightful tool to uncovering characteristics.
