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.

What a difference that will be from Jupiter in oceanic watery Pisces!  Pisces, known to be magical, meditational, artistic especially with visionary art and all kinds of music, intuitive with computer software, a spiritual fisherman, a traveler upon the waves of ocean and mind, sadly a magician of denial, also has boundless compassion and dedication, giving life and Soul for their beliefs. 

Jupiter will be our first planet into Aries this year.  It’s been 12 years since it was there before, and this time, since it is also Perihelion (nearest the Sun in its orbit), it makes a swift sweep through, in a breathtaking 4 months, 13 days, Jan 22 to June 4!  Usually it takes a whole year through a sign!

Aries - Breath of the Fire of Life!

Aries doesn’t make moods, they make motion! Instant perception, immediate response, uncannily right. Like first responders, they can save your life! They are great consultants. Bring them in, record the insights, let them go on to the next. They just gave you their gift. Passion and fire are their mediums.

Jupiter, planet of Sagittarius, loves to travel, the faster the better!  Skiing, skating, racing, hiking to far high places suits. In Aries they can’t wait to get started and want to get there first! If you see them coming, step aside! Jupiter has a great sense of direction, purpose, a taller long view, that can take Aries more potently into its future.  Aries is independent and Jupiter likes freedom to roam. Great combo for them, might not make their lovers or family so happy.  Promotions, publicity and publishing will be red hot! Aries has just the spark to push it over the threshold!

Jupiter thinks it is right, and Aries is willing to defend or apply the principle. If there are anger issues, this may be the time to get a grip, learn how to use your energy in a good way. There needs to be care here. Jupiter can be too blunt, feelings can get way hurt.  It may be costly in time to repair, or heartbreakingly irreparable. Not good. The axis Aries challenges is Cancer/Capricorn, Mother, Father, children, people of tender connections. The other side of Aries is Libra, our marriage mates, partners in business, legal proceedings. Be smart, savvy. If you don’t know how to hold yourself in battle, get a go between, a counselor, an attorney, whatever makes sense. The instinct of Aries is to do it all yourself. A wise person can do both, get help, and do it yourself.

Think of children born with this placement of Jupiter! Natural born leaders, fearless teachers, but you better grab the info quickly, because they already see another possibility! Keep them entertained, give them challenges they can achieve so their Spirit won’t be broken. When they are doing what they love, they will have broad minds, and a tremendous focus!

Jupiter, the WayShower, makes the Pilgrimage; Aries lights the Way – torch and candle!  On Point, Blessings on your Journey!
