05-06 Gemini/Virgo/Sagittarius/Pisces cross

  • Gemini: Drilling For Oil.
  • Virgo: A Merry-Go-Round.
  • Sagittarius: A Game Of Cricket.

  • Pisces: Officers On Dress Parade.

This cross seems similar to the 02-03 GSVP theme of ‘more things change, the more they stay the same’.  The difference here is that each symbol has a sense of rhythm.


Consider the pump-jacks in Texan (of the United States of America) oil-wells (Gemini) that intend to bring oil and provide a visual nodding rhythm in the landscape.  Virgo’s merry-go-round whirls children around on a circular platform for fun.  Sagittarius’ cricket game has overs where the teams take turns batting and is considered a gentlemen's game of fun and strategy.  According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, the officers perform on dress parade (a formal ceremonial parade in non-combat dress uniform) in a set choreographed rhythm (Pisces).  The parade has been practiced by the officers by ‘drill’!  Which brings us back to Gemini’s Drilling For Oil.


The cross reminds us that we achieve by repetition, whether for gain (Gemini), for fun and recreation (Virgo and Sagittarius), or to perfect the display of pride in service (Pisces).  This cross is about the importance of the rhythms of life, like the Buddhist trope of fetching wood and carrying water, that still need attention for gaining resources (Gemini), fulfilment of our days (Virgo and Sagittarius) and respect for what we have achieved (Pisces).
