24-25 Aries/Cancer/Libra/Capricorn cross

  • Aries: A Double Promise.
  • Cancer: A Dark Shadow Or Mantle Thrown Suddenly Over The

                    Right Shoulder.

  • Libra: Information In The Symbol Of An Autumn Leaf.

  • Capricorn: An Oriental Rug Dealer.


This Aries and Libra combination is a little like Virgo 28-29 A Man Gaining Secret Knowledge From A Paper He Is Reading but the realisation (Libra) is not immediate and only occurs while walking the path of this cross. 

Aries' initial promise or contract suggest the agreement means something else, probably made by Capricorn’s dealer.  The meaning doesn’t have to be sinister, but Cancer’s dark mantle implies tough love (at best) or a sinister agenda (at worst).  Cancer's right side can mean the future, a male, or giving—in the context of this cross it could be a warning (or a demonstration) about the future of the path you tread.

Capricorn’s salesman connects the dark mantle and the double promise—be careful what you wish for, it might just come true.  Rugs are like tapestries and blankets, woven with colours and textures like a story.  Rugs are under the feet, like magic carpet, and here mean the choice of possible paths and life stories.  Libra’s realisation in time (autumn rather than winter's ‘closing time’) prompts a turning point and a new choice made (Capricorn). 

The cross describes a marketing pitch (Aries) you are sold on, then a taste of the dark side of what you bought (Cancer) in case you only saw the pros and not the cons.  "Oops, I now know enough to change my mind," says Libra.  "Let's see if I can return this thing and walk on a different path," says Capricorn, though the path has a double promise (Aries) as all paths do—let's hope the deal you make is worth the cost (Cancer)!

The cross is a blessing as it informs us before we are stuck with a commitment that we find out doesn't suit.  To balance the energy in the cross is to resolve its four steps quickly and easily.
