07-08 Taurus/Leo/Scorpio/Aquarius cross

  • Taurus: A Sleigh Without Snow.
  • Leo: A Bolshevik Propagandist.

  • Scorpio: The Moon Shining Across A Lake.

  • Aquarius: Beautifully Gowned Wax Figures.

Let's start at the more difficult symbol - the Bolshevik propagandist. 

“Propaganda is information that is not objective and is used primarily to influence an audience and further an agenda, often by presenting facts selectively to encourage a particular synthesis or perception, or using loaded language to produce an emotional rather than a rational response to the information that is presented" (from en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Propaganda).  

"Later official accounts of the revolution from the Soviet Union would depict the events in October as being far more dramatic than they actually had been… In reality, the Bolshevik insurgents faced little opposition… Later stories of the heroic "Storming of the Winter Palace" and "defense of the Winter Palace" were [later found to be] propaganda by Bolshevik publicists. Grandiose paintings depicting the "Women's Battalion" and photo stills taken from Sergei Eisenstein's staged film depicting the "politically correct" version of the October events in Petrograd came to be taken as truth" (from en.wikipedia.org/wiki/October_Revolution).

Relating this to the other symbols, where the lake reflects the illusion of another moon, the gowns are displayed on wax figures which are facsimiles of real people, the Leo symbol is about talking something up bigger than it really is (or BS, short for bull-sh...evik).  Rather humorously, the Taurean sleigh is exposed as, well, useless, without the snow - it is now an ornament in the garden, or awaiting winter in the shed.

Therefore the cross has two layers:

  • display/illusion
  • immobility/caught - the gowned wax figures are immobile, the moonlight is beautifully caught by the lake, the sleigh is stuck, and the propagandist tries to catch hearts and minds to further an agenda.

The question is, what is the reality?
