The theme of the cross is the importance of
self-care and support to continue to work or serve.
The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement's principles are to protect life and health, prevent human suffering and ensure respect for all humans. This humanitarian movement is largely based on volunteers. Taurus' Red Cross nurse, who is popular in a crisis (Aquarius) epitomizes self-less giving and a desire to help despite the risks of the situations they enter. Nurses in general are at the front-line of someone’s bad day, receiving the negative emotions of the people or families they help and even of staff around them who also look for an outlet to negative emotions they received. At times, nurses can feel unacknowledged and unappreciated (based on the stories my health-industry friends tell me).
There is thankfully some comfort in solidarity, validation and dark humor with fellow nurses and health-workers, even just the support of friends or family who understand (Scorpio). One of the primary ways to self-care or self-nurture is with food, and a fellowship supper also feeds our soul with companionship.
After the demands of the day (Aquarius), Scorpio's support buoys us so we can begin a new day refreshed (Leo), ready for work (Taurus) and meeting demands again (Aquarius)!
This cross also resonates with the 14-15 Aries/Cancer/Libra/Capricorn cross, specifically:
While the 14-15 Cancer-Capricorn pair are about comfort and gentle lessons, the Taurus-Scorpio pair has a sense of bonding (Scorpio) with and caring (Taurus) for ‘fellow’ humans. Leo's early morning dew also harmonizes with Aquarius' ephemeral popularity—both evaporate in the heat. Perhaps this cross is a statement on the toil of humanitarian organizations at crises and the resulting high turnover of workers. Workers (Taurus) who arrive fresh (Leo) to the crises form attachments due to the intense experience (Scorpio) and perhaps stay to support each other, but eventually become spent in the cause (Aquarius) and leave.
