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.

Aries, intrepid riders! Uranus in Aries, you fly!

May 27  It begins. 

The Uranus square Pluto.  This aspect is unique because it will happen 7 times, starting in range now, exact for the first time June 23, 2012, finishing Mar 17, 2015, in effect five years! Also on May 27, the Full Moon of Gemini/Sagittarius, called the Full Moon of Humanity (communications), is on the same day Uranus, the planet of Humanity, enters Aries, for the first time in 84 years!  This puts Uranus in not just numerical square, but sign square with Pluto in Capricorn!  Aries is the beginning, the first sign; Capricorn, the 10th sign, symbolically represents the top of the mountain, the authority, the elder, the Patriarch.  Aries is the Initiate; Capricorn the wise Master, the Initiator.  Aries is innovative; Capricorn relies on Archetypes and existing standards.  Aries gets things started, Capricorn is the Builder completes the project.  Aries will jump the lines and fight, while Capricorn barricades the fortress and makes sure there is drinking water! 

Uranus and Pluto are, perhaps, strange bedfellows, ruling ‘fixed’ signs not known for their flexibility.  Uranus is noted for genius and insanity, always different than the average cat.  Can be a strict loner, or the totally internet savvy worldwide organizer.  Pluto says, ‘You don’t know who I am,’ master of secrecy, but will confidentially add your money to the corporate pile faster than the blink of an eye, multiplying your contribution to mega sums.  Now if that is in behalf of the community organization you are funding, it works.  If it is stealing, it could be more missing than was known could be stolen!  Pluto is known to be private and behind the scenes; Uranus loves to be social, noticed, with exotic friends.  Pluto is life stakingly serious about intimacy; Uranus can be very cool, dry, bored, or busy but maybe not with you.  Pluto wants to heal what was hidden; Uranus wants awakening – perhaps working together would get the job done!  So Pluto gets connected one way, sharing until death do us part, while Uranus wants to save the world, starting with friendship, by connecting people into groups, groups to groups.  If Pluto can get you to trust, Uranus can give you the cause to give your $ to.  You see how different they are, yet how their purposes can be used together profoundly?  I doubt it will be smooth going, and why should it be?!  How else to create new juice but to brew the cauldron with new bits?
