American Red Cross founder, Swiss Jean-Henri Dunant, was awarded the first Nobel Peace Prize in 1901.

ARIES is the first sign of Astrology’s first cross of the 3 Grand Crosses of Matter. Its cross is the Cardinal, as in the red bird, Cross. It’s four points are first, itself, Aries, Mars, the Warrior, Protector, Rescuer, Initiator. Opposite is Libra, Venus, the Beloved, partnerships of all kinds, equality, balance, respect, fairness both in beauty and in Spirit. The vertical axis is of Cancer, Moon, at the South, warm at home’s hearth, Mom’s nurturing. Opposite is Capricorn, Saturn, of the North, hard at work out in the world, building, fortifying, at times scrabbling for a toehold, maintaining.

The symbol of the American Red Cross, is red on white, Aries’s two colors! It was founded in Switzerland, a politically neutral country, for humanitarian purposes, to help soldiers. It was brought to the United States by Clara Barton after the Civil War. The symbol was chosen in gratitude to the Swiss founder, Jean Henri Dunant, using the reversed colors of their flag.

The Cardinal Cross is truly a cross of Matter. Without life, it doesn’t matter. Aries gives us that option for life and inspiration. Once gathered up, we can go home, be cared for, be loved, find productive outlet for our creative ability. Bravery and physical prowess are standard equipment for Aries. Standing up to a bully, in behalf of the underdog, when the odds are stacked pretty high, is merely a challenge. They wink at you over their shoulder as they lean right into the fray! Follow tight through the crowd, you’ll make it to the other side, or be first in line at the grocery store!

Ok, so not all Aries are that gallant. In fact there are some complaints they only think of themselves. And that may be true. Yet, we can learn to balance ourselves more appropriately. Take courage, say NO once in awhile. Say YES when you want it. Stand up. You can. Even if you fumble or are wrong. You can sort things out. At least you got started. Do you need to apologize? Would your Aries friend? Probably not. Should you apologize for just being yourself? Probably not.

In this time of needing great courage, stay steady in the Light. If you need help, be wise, ask for it. If you can give help, do it the ways you have that are so special to give, exactly as you can. I wish you and your loved ones the very best, with every breath.

In Dedication, and in Gratitude, to all those in Japan who are risking their lives to make things safe for us. They are Angels of a kind, heroes and heroines for sure.

Feb 20 to 22, we have a lot of Pisces flavor as first Mercury, then Mars conjunct Neptune, Pisces’s planet on the 20th. The 21st Mercury enters Pisces, then the 22, Mars enters Pisces. Concentration may be exquisitely focused, or exquisitely seeking in a field of diffusion, bumping into what might never have been seen if you hadn’t meandered, toeing over the fringe of consciousness into other realms. Rescue me and take me with you!

Feb 21 Happy Presidents Day!

Feb 22 to March 9 Five planets in Pisces! It starts with a powerful Mars, Chiron, Mercury, Sun conjunction from 0 to 4 degrees! Mars gives Pisces more pizzazz than usual! Makes me think it is readying things for the big March 21 to May 15 Aries (Mars’s Sign) 56 day Stellium! Mars will energize Chiron, light up its healing and teaching, heat up mates and marriages, add exercise like swimming or dancing to its repertoire, inspire leadership as a healing morality. It fights for the underdog, may be the underdog, yet in teaching will step courageously onto new ground. The Sacred Hunter will seek his magical Beloved. Mars with Mercury and the Sun in Pisces will ignite the dream in a very personal sense. This will be specially so if your birthday is the first four days of Pisces, and its grand cross mates, Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius. Innovative words and unique, yet Universal, ways of personal expression, will cause others to follow in their own special ways, a symphony of Beings.

Time to step it up with those dancing shoes…..
