23-24 Gemini/Virgo/Sagittarius/Pisces cross

  • Gemini: Children Skating On Ice.
  • Virgo: Mary And Her White Lamb.
  • Sagittarius: A Bluebird Standing At The Door Of The House.

  • Pisces: An Inhabited Island.



The Sagittarian bluebird contains the key to the whole cross.  In dream theory (according to dreammoods.com), the bluebird "symbolizes both happiness and sadness. It is also an indication of purification and resolution to the opposing conflicts/paradoxes in your life". 

The paradoxes in the cross are: Gemini children having fun skating, though there is implicit danger in slipping/falling and also that the ice is thin and could crack open, dropping children into freezing water.  Mary and her white (symbolising purity) lamb are loving innocents in the famous nursery rhyme "Mary Had a Little Lamb", however the rhyme describes the commotion that erupted when Mary brought her lamb to school. 

The Gemini fun with implied danger evolves to a Virgo commotion caused by the innocent child and her loving pet.  The Sagittarian bluebird brings the paradoxes (akin to "the road to hell is paved with good intentions") to the door of the house - which could be another word for family, or in dreams represents the self and the soul.  According to dreammoods.com "entering through a door signifies new opportunities that are presented before you. You are entering into a new stage in your life and moving from one level of consciousness to another. In particular, a door that opens to the outside signifies your need to be more accessible to others, whereas a door that opens into the inside, denotes your desire for inner exploration and self-discovery."


The effect of the bluebird inviting the soul to explore and resolve these paradoxes is healing for any child (or inner child) who thought they did something wrong, just because of the effect their actions had, even though harm was not intended.  Just because life responded a particular way to the child does not diminish the love that every child deserves.  The blue-bird is a redeeming of the self, the innocence returned and the invitation to self-love, that requires inner work and new perspectives to integrate the paradoxes.

The Piscean inhabited island provides a conclusion - ease, solitude, relaxation away from everyone else so as to heal, or cutting the self off from the rest of society.

The trip back to Gemini occurs when after healing, accepting the paradoxes as part of life allows you to enjoy life again for all its dangers (spiralling higher), OR that by limiting your perspective (cut off from society) you are not seeing all aspects of life and continue to live in paradox (continuous loop) for example "it was my fault something bad happened even though I just wanted to skate, so life and everyone including me suck".

We may not be able to control everything in life, but we can choose our attitude.
