08-09 Taurus/Leo/Scorpio/Aquarius cross

  • Taurus: A Christmas Tree Decorated.
  • Leo: Glass Blowers.

  • Scorpio: Dental Work.

  • Aquarius: A Flag Turned Into An Eagle.

This cross has the sense of destiny about it. 

A Christmas tree will eventually be decorated.  If it was grown for the purpose of Christmas, then its likely destiny is decoration by December 25th. 

Glass blowers take glass, fire and air to create wonderful shapes and colours and manifest a new delicate object – I bet the glass is happy! The blowers breathe air, like the goddess Psyche, into the material to give it the identity and purpose (vase? tumbler? bead?) it now has.

Dental work is about fixing the smile and promoting health for proper function – correcting the teeth to a better working or cosmetic function.

According to Scott Alexander King's Animal Dreaming book, eagle represents spirit, so we can interpret the the flag as the spirit of the people, a physical symbol carrying the cultural identity, values and spirit of those who unite under it.  This exalts the piece of cloth that is merely shorthand for the name of a country.

Destiny implies an understanding of the essential self.  How can we fulfil our destiny without knowing who we are, our skills, our strengths and what we came to learn? 

Our destiny requires that eventually we see ourselves as we truly are at some point, through efforts of developing ourselves in life.  We cannot become a decorated tree without growing from a sapling, nor can we be a bead without a glass blower, we cannot achieve wisdom (teeth) without chewing over and reflecting on our experiences, we are more than just a member of a group because we are the values of the group come alive in our interactions.

In another sense we can ask: how do you define your essential self?  By your role (Taurus), what you create (Leo), what you perfect (Scorpio) or who/what you align with (Aquarius)?
