Remember the Lotus

Whenever you should doubt your self-worth, remember the lotus flower.  Even though it plunges to life from beneath the mud, it does not allow the dirt that surrounds it to affect its growth or beauty.  Suzy Kassem. The lotus flower is considered a sacred symbol.  The Lotus symbolizes purity, beauty, majesty, grace, fertility, knowledge and serenity.  The lotus will fluorish in murky waters, pushing through mud and mire.  The petals break through and reach toward the sun, while the leaves stay afloat as they shine in the light.

Symbolically, lotus petals can be found in the chakra symbols.  Each chakra has a specific number of petals, representing ascending vibrational frequencies.  The state of enlightenment is represented by the thousand-petal lotus.

Whats Your Sign?

Astrological Signs, the Ancient History.

When the ancients noticed the planets moving along the ecliptic path, they also noticed the background of fixed stars behind that path. It would be as though you noticed a background of billboards around a racetrack. You could tell the positions of the horses around the track just by identifying the billboards behind each horse. The ancients used the background of fixed stars the same way. They divided their racetrack (the ecliptic) into 12 equal sectors. Each sector was named after the fixed-star group seen in that sector. Aries the ram, etc. The ancients referred to these sectors as the "little zoo", which in Greek is "zodiac".

The Significance of The Signs.

The planets represent the energies that drive your physical, emotional mental and intuitional systems. These energies manifest themselves differently depending on the positions of the planets in the signs of the zodiac.  Different signs channel the energies into different behavior patterns, which are then recognized as personality traits.

In a single word, the traits associated with each sign are as follows:
Every sign falls into a group of signs, either fire, earth, water, and air; depending on their orientation in the zodiac. These ancient astrologers had associated each Element with their temperaments, and each group of elements are at 120 degree angles to each other.
  • Fire Signs - Aries, Leo, Sagittarius.  Enthusiastic, courageous, passionate and impulsive.
  • Earth Signs - Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn.  Practical, materialistic, conservative, and inhibited.
  • Air Signs - Gemini, Libra, Aquarius.  Intellectual, adaptive, impractical, and superficial.
  • Water Signs - Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces.  Emotional, sensitive, placid, and susceptible.
These four groups of signs: fire, earth, air, and water, combine to form two major groups that represent two fundamental approaches to life; active and passive. The fire and air signs make up the active or masculine signs, while the earth and water signs make up the passive or feminine signs. It is unfortunate that the ancient astrologers called the active signs masculine and the passive signs feminine.

Another group of traits occurs among signs that are 90 degrees apart from each other. There are four signs in each group of Qualities , which are cardinal, fixed, or mutable. They suggest the basic kinds of activity a person will be engaged in--getting things started, keeping them going, or steering them in different directions.
  • Cardinal Signs - Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn.  Initiating, enterprising, ambitious and domineering.
  • Fixed Signs - Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius.  Determined, conventional, organizing and  dogmatic.
  • Mutable Signs -  Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius.  Adaptable, imaginative, tutorial and critical.
