The Aries symbol is about how we are a
product of our environment: the physical, cultural and societal values. When we make generalisations about a race or
group of people, we are making observations from the outside looking in about
the environment that is imposed on that group or race. Have you ever met someone who never left their home town? Do they perceive anyone not from there as the Other, rather than a fellow human?
The rest of the cross stresses how travel is good for the soul: the movement in the Cancer symbol indicating a journey, leadership in the self and adventure. The furs are self-care, self-nurture and
comfort at a time where change can be lonely and uncomfortable, and sometimes a guide is needed. A change of environment frees us from old roles
and discover new selves according to the Libra and Capricorn
symbols. Really, we have seen the Other, and the Other is us.
