The beginning of Ezekiel's vision reads as follows: "There the hand of Yahweh came on me. I looked; a stormy wind blew from the north, a great cloud with light around it, a fire from which flashes of lightning darted. " (Ezek. l:4ff. , JB) So Ezekiel's grand vision of the nature of God also came from the north. There is another reference in Job 26:7. In paragraph 158 Jung speaks of a Christian writer who quotes Ezekiel and his vision of God coming from the north; the writer relates that to the coming of the Antichrist. Jung comments: The pious author never stops to think how remarkable it is that the prophet's [Ezekiel's] vision of God should be blown along on the wings of the north wind, wrapped in this devilish smoke of threefold ignorance. This material which Jung lays out indicates that the unconscious of these pious authors is pointing out the fact that both devilish and divine attributes come from the same source. They are the positive and negative manifestations of the Self. Those realizations are slipped into religious discourse by the unconscious of those who do not realize what they are revealing. So the north is both the abode of Set, Typhon, Lucifer, the devil, and the source of the most magnificent revelation of deity that the whole Old Testament offers us. Page 88 12 Paragraphs 162–176 The Historical Significance of the Fish Jung begins his chapter on the historical importance of the fish with a discussion of the birth of the Messiah. He writes: Like every hero, Christ had a childhood that was threatened (massacre of the innocents, flight into Egypt). The astrological "interpretation" of this can be found in Revelation 12:1: "A woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. " (par. 163) This image of the woman clothed with the sun is part of a grand apocalyptic vision experienced by St. John the Divine on the island of Patmos: Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman, adorned with the sun, standing on the moon, and with the twelve stars on her head for a crown. She was pregnant, and in labor, crying aloud in the pangs of childbirth. Then a second sign appeared in the sky, a huge red dragon which had seven heads and ten horns, and each of the seven heads crowned with a coronet. Its tail dragged a third of the stars from the sky and dropped them to the earth, and the dragon stopped in front of the woman as she was having the child, so that he could eat it as soon as it was born from its mother. The woman brought a male child into the world, the son who was to rule all the nations with an iron scepter, and the child was taken straight up to God and to his throne, while the woman escaped into the desert, where God had made a place of safety ready, for her to be looked after in the twelve hundred and sixty days. (Rev. 12:1–6, JB) Jung refers to this account in Revelation as a variation of Christ's nativity. He attaches considerable importance to the image, as indicated by his lengthy discussion of it in "Answer to Job.
