Jack Kerouac, the prototypal Beat Generation poet and novelist, was a quadruple Piscean. He was born with the Sun, Venus, Uranus and Lilith in Pisces. This is a zodiac sign that defaults to polarities: to Fish-folk, moderation and the middle ground is unsafe terrain. They won’t so much oscilliate as do – or be – opposing extremes at the same time.

Kerouac embodied high and low Pisces values: Iconic for his eloquence, cool and stream-of-consciousness writing, he ran counter to the culture of the day and single-handedly established a new genre. He also drank himself to death and was most likely a living nightmare for the many women he pursued, married or had a yen for.

The Beat Generation were born with Neptune in Leo and came into prominence with Pluto in Leo over the 1950s. Kerouac had Neptune in Leo trine Mars in mutable Sagittarius and both those stimulated his multiple-Pisces line-up. He had Moon in Virgo opposite Uranus in Pisces and square his Mars. So he was ultra-Mutable, fantastic at Flow, not crash-hot at stability.

Crazy, alcoholic and burdened with the standard-issue sexism of his generation as he was, he’s still hot. Jack Kerouac is probably the number one Neptunian Boyfriend archetype. And well, he could write. Here are his haiku-like 30 Tips For Writing.

“…. and I shambled after as usual as I’ve been doing all my life after people who interest me, because the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes “Awww!”

  1. Yes! Finally. I have been seaching for months on what Haute Neptune means. And it has elluded me a hundred times. Idealistic has neve ressonated. This however resonates a lot. The control your dopamine makes so much sence. Giving myself a natural high by will. Yes! I love that. I know that guy

  2. I’ve got Pisces sun and I felt so, so utterly liberated when Neptune moved over my sun a few months ago.

    All the crap limitations, beliefs and rules I’ve been living under for years just seemed to evaporate into the ether and I felt like anything was possible.

    Needless to say I CANNOT wait for Neptune to slip back into Pisces next year and drive me forward into the next phase of my life.

  4. Jack !…one of my fantasy boyfriends from my teen-age years….spent hours absorbed in ` On the Road ` and ` Dharma Bums`.

    wander-lust and just regular lust.

  5. Tantric names? it would co-respond to the Ida/Pingala, the etheric silver & gold
    energetic threads that rise and entiwne thoughout the spine. Featured in ‘The Serpent
    Power’ by Auther Avalon.
    Sanskrit is so romatic & flourish-y, beautful words & descriptions of the millions
    of threads weaving up the spine aka the Kundalini.

    Note to self: Go back to your studies or lose your long term memory!

    Neil Cassidy, Jack’s mate was rather hot and handome. Whatta pair.
    My pets are named after Jack K & Henry M.

  6. Mystic thanks for this, this is brill! Gotham is an excellent resource. My fave tip is no. 4, “be in love with your life”, what else is there…

    Read his “On the Road” story and loved this, he made even the most painful experiences seem beautiful and kind of collective, moments of existential experience embraced by the ultimate happy belongingness in this world, of us all.

  7. Currently listening to Matt Dillion reading On the Road (itunes audiobook bit pricey but oh so worth it).. Matt Dillons reading is absolutely delicious.

    thank you for re awakening all my pisces man stuff. Gorgeous guy, i can see those big hands stroking my head after we had “been intimate”, him spouting poetry, me as his muse.

    Having said that, my new mystic-prescribed, saturn on ascendent plan is NO messy men, hot or not. Standards. No addicts, no liars, no players, no one unavailable and saturn apparently knows even if you are fantasising about them.

    sorry to be off topic but is anyone else here single and thinking it is maybe forever now? Not in a “i am not worthy” way but just nobody around you like?

    1. yes saturn does know if you are even fantasizing….I have pisces on 7th cusp. In all my years, only one fling with a pisces. I knew he was no good for me and there were gigantic circumstances, so it went no where. hmmm. but I love them, two of my kids are pisces.

    2. Pisces man in my past was secretive, paranoid and alcoholic.

      I’ve got my Neptune stuff sorted now (and shortly after, realised that EVERY significant relationship had been fueled by alcohol). Now one of my needs in a future partner (and subject of any early conversation) is about their relationship with alcohol. It’s non-negotiable.

      TLS, yes, I feel sometimes that I will never partner again (and that that would ok), but I hope I’m wrong! I’m not ready to shut up shop just yet!

  9. Not a huge fan or his writing (teenage angst / acid trip!) or his looks… The haute neptune type packs their yerba mate into their gourd & gets to work on their bombilla?

  10. Not a huge fan of his writing, but goodness, he was handsome. I’ve noticed I tend to be very attracted to Pisces men (makes sense, my Moon/ASC are in Pisces). I just need to find a good one!

  11. Love Jack. Thank you MM. Lovely photo for my birthday.

    Even ABC Classical played my fav song this monring.

    Feeling blessed even tho I have pass- agg frenemies about I shall gloriously glide by them and channel the Moon in Aries.

    1. That’s the right tude LG, sometimes I’ve questioned why certain ‘friends’ are around. Happy Birthday too xx

    2. Happy Birthday! Have an awesome year groover!

      Forget your pass-agg frens and shine like sun, high on life, and eternally shining above it all! πŸ™‚

      1. Thx for all your lovely bday wishes. been in the rainforest last 3 days. MM’s daily was so spot on it was a Are you ready?kinda message… lots revealed and lots to ponder good and bad over the weekend with friends meeting the lusty for the first time and then hearing their views. Very interesting

  12. My multiple Piscean Pa got me on to Kerouac as a girl, I didn’t know he was Pisces, but that’s perfect! Poser that my dad is, he often sported a pipe, I am rather fond of them.
    A good shaman ought have a pipe or two. I shall invest me in a corn-cob pipe when my tobacco plants grow. My Moon Garden is still in seed packets, though I do have jasmine and snow drops already flowering.

    Jack is the best, I do love the way he makes language feel so physical, his prose sort of enfolds you in it’s embrace…

  13. yes a really really attractive man – he must have been born on a full moon to have moon in virgo and sun in pisces – the opposite of my sun/moon. Read him when I was a teen – but he and his compadres were unfortunately a negative influence as I grew up right on the tail end of the baby boomer drug culture – happy to say neptune in pisces is helping me clean up my act now tho’!
