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.

STUDENTS! FOR YOUR LEARNING PLEASURE!

Libra, Isis, Angel on Earth

Symbols say so much. Whether Quan Yin or Isis, some say they are Angels on Earth. Look at Isis, goddess of Light, marital harmony, and magic, for our Libra symbol. Wings outstretched, she welcomes all, has compassion for all, equality and balance. The Sun above her head is the Sun symbolized at its set, the rise in the top line of the Libra symbol. The two lines represent ‘As above, so below.’ The partnering of the lower and upper worlds. So we have balance in all directions, side to side among us, below and above, spirit and mind with matter.

Or you can think of the Libra symbol as the scales.  The lower line is the earth the scales are standing on, grounded on this plane, connected in a good way to Mother Earth.  The scales themselves, with the ‘rise’ of the center post, the upper line, with the pans at either side. 

Or you can think of the upper line as representing a person holding the scales.  Their head, the higher consciousness that weighs what we think, is the rise point on the upper line, our arms outstretched holding the pans of life on either side. 

Since Libra, the Fall Equinox, signifies coming into the darker time of our year, resources deep within us, many times the Libra symbol is made with a dark background. Some make the symbol orange or gold to signify the sunset glow, fall, harvest, pumpkins, Halloween – the link between the living and our ancestors! 

Look at the symbols of all the signs to learn more of their beauty.
