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.

Aquarius - Ahead of the Times!

Chiron has ventured into Pisces for a preview, to set things up for the future, since April 19, 2010. On the magical planes, Pisces is our spiritual home, a space of insights, epiphanies, visions, often in films, making music, dreams. Pisceans often dedicate their lives to a great cause that carries on for aeons, crossing all boundaries of time and space. Businesses can be anywhere from the local bar on the corner, to the most fanciful island spa, wine making, film making, eyewear, sail making, ocean voyages, metaphysical gift shops, churches, the summer psychic reader on your vacation!      

Today the mystic healer returns to Aquarius

…for six plus months to wrap up its Aquarian matters. Chiron is teacher/healer, and per the Magi astrology, the astute business person, and THE marriage planet! Aquarius is friendships, community organizations, professional associations, the worldwide net! It sizzles! It is the awakener, changemaker, sets us free! It is the lightning strike, the earthquake that sets us loose from the daily repetition, helps us step beyond fear. Get connected in behalf of the changes you want to see happen. See how others have done things similar to the kinds of things you want to do. Be with people who are going your way or who are in related fields. See if you can merge and get more support, get investors to fund you, whether that be in Spirit or financially.      

Consider your intent in relationships.  Stay single, work toward a relationship, stay in your relationship, heal, renew, a relationship, leave a relationship in a healthy way.  Consider your family relationships, friendships, business associates.  Chiron, ever the teacher, gives opportunity to learn and heal every step of the way.  Every connection is meaningful.  Every loss of connection, or choice to end connection, brings a life skill – how to do it with grace.      

Aquarius is fascinated with research and invention! Just let your ideas flow, brainstorm. Do different! Give it a try, one thing leads to another! Take time to be a little more wild on the far edges of your line of sight! Remember that curvature of the Earth? Well, if you keep going, you can see more! Evolution just keeps right on going!      

Aquarian enterprises are anything computer and internet, singers and sound, vibration, seismic, ahead of its time, flight, space and astronomy and astrology, intelligence, humanitarian organizations, and would you believe, bartending and banking?!       

Think about what you dream of. How can that come true? What can you do? Who can you connect with to help you?      

Best!
Cerena
