There are no astrologers in Game of Thrones. But we can ask ourselves: what are the astrological signs of Game of Thrones main characters? Today – Jon Snow.
Jon Snow, the Bastard: Suffer!
Jon Snow seems to perfectly illustrate the motto for Pisces: „serve or suffer“. But, in his case, „or“ was replaced by „and“, so that his motto became „serve and suffer“.
Tyrion, probably the smartest character in the book and the show, indicates from the beginning the main cause of his suffering:
„Tyrion Lannister: Let me tell you something, Bastard. Never forget what you are, the rest of the world will not. Wear it like armor and it can never be used to hurt you.
Jon Snow: What the hell do you know about being a bastard?
Tyrion Lannister: All dwarfs are bastards in their father’s eyes“.
Catelyn Stark’s confession tells a lot about Jon childhood sufferings:
„When my husband brought that baby home from the war I couldn’t bear to look at him. I didn’t want to see those brown stranger’s eyes staring up at me. So I prayed to the gods, take him away. Make him die. He got the pox. And I knew I was the worst woman who ever lived. A murderer. I’d condemned this poor, innocent child to a to a horrible death all because I was jealous of his mother. A woman he didn’t even know. So I pray to all seven gods, let the boy live. Let him live, and I’lll love him. I’ll be a mother to him. I’ll beg my husband to give him a true name, to call him Stark and be done with it. To make him one of us“. Which she didn’t and John never became a Stark, remaining a Snow, a bastard.
Jon Snow at Night’s Watch: Serve!
Being in remote places is something natural for Pisces. Jon Snow joins the Night’s Watch, the military order which guards the Wall, the immense ice structure which separates the northern border of the Seven Kingdoms from the lands beyond.
The Night’s Watch oath is all about renunciation and sacrifice:
„Night gathers, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death. I shall take no wife, hold no lands, father no children. I shall wear no crowns and win no glory. I shall live and die at my post. I am the sword in the darkness. I am the watcher on the walls. I am the fire that burns against the cold, the light that brings the dawn, the horn that wakes the sleepers, the shield that guards the realms of men. I pledge my life and honor to the Night’s Watch, for this night and all nights to come“.
And John will remain loyal to his Night’s Watch vows, even when Stannis offers to legitimize him and declare him Lord of Winterfell.
The sensitive and compassionate Jon Snow
The Pisces man is warm hearted and deeply sensitive. He is compassionate, generous and loyal. John Snow vividly demonstrated these qualities.
Jon’s loyalty to the Watch and its vows, his family and even Westeros itself are tested, confirmed and reconfirmed.
His friendship with Sam, mockingly called „Ser Piggy“, who weigh 20 stone (127 kg/280 lbs) and prefers books over swords, his love story with Ygritte, the free woman he was supposed to kill and his efforts to save the wildlings and to allow them to pass through the Wall – all these facts offer a faithful portrait of John Snow’s Pisces qualities.
