05-06 Taurus/Leo/Scorpio/Aquarius cross

  • Taurus: A Bridge Being Built Across A Gorge.
  • Leo: An Old Fashioned Woman And A Flapper.

  • Scorpio: A Gold Rush.

  • Aquarius: A Performer Of A Mystery Play.



This cross has halves:

  • the Leo old-fashioned woman and the flapper has their dynamic explained by the Aquarian mystery – "this person is completely strange!"  Or, "why is this person in my life?!  I don't understand!" 
  • The Taurean bridge connects each side of the gorge (a large space with cliff like edges), allowing anyone to freely leave or enter either side - or escape for something better (Scorpio gold rush).  This half has structure (Taurus) and movement (Scorpio).

The Taurus and Scorpio symbols together are about connection while the Leo and Aquarius symbols together are about difference and mystery.  Putting these symbols together, the story is that a new structure (Taurus) or different person (Leo) provides richer experiences (Scorpio) of which we may not know the outcome (good, bad, random) or why it is so (Aquarius).

My own personal experience of this cross was as follows:

I booked and stayed at an accomodation, however had to leave due to family circumstances.  I read the booking rules and the accomodation website calculated the refund I was due.  I completed the appropriate form however the owner of the accommodation was unwilling to process it.  We both thought we had the correct interpretation of the rules and both of us were very firm about our positions, thinking the other person was wrong, dishonest or crazy (Leo).  I was aware that I was allowing myself to get triggered ("why can't I shake this off?  I have other options, why am I so insistent?!  Why can't I let this go?") and both of us became very verbally assertive though maintaining a very thin veneer of civility.  The booking website was the intermediary and decided to intervene (Taurus), refund out of their pocket the rest of my money when I left early, and allow the owner to keep the entire booked amount (and I think the owner needed the money too), so the outcome was a win-win (Scorpio) between the two strangers (Leo, Aquarius).  A friend of mine read the entire emailed conversation and acknowledged that we had become attacking, and I agreed that despite myself I had become so (Aquarius), even though I knew better about myself and triggers and had tools to overcome them.  The best I was able to manage in the situation, though, was that I was very self-aware of the emotions and reactions I struggled to control.  I have absolutely no doubt the owner felt the same way!

In the end, I was able to leave with the appropriate refund, which, had I been more accomodating and less stressed and insistent, would have agreed to half of that, as that was what the owner offered!  I could not berate myself for my behaviour because as weird as it was (Aquarius) it resulted in a full win-win for both of us (although a halfwin-halfwin is not bad in hindsight - it was clearly Not Good Enough at the time!)  The feeling of joy when I was "freed" by the news of the refund is beyond this page :)

As I am someone who likes to know the Why of things, the lesson of the cross was that for a time I could not understand why this owner and I had crossed paths, and I realise there is just No Reason.  There is Just Is.  And there is no judging anyone in the situation - had either of us acted differently, maybe we would not have "won" so much.  All I have to explain the situation is this cross!
