Aries and "surrounding"

Aries - the ram - itself is a small constellation but lays right along and above the ecliptic. South of it the head of Cetus and Eridanus (river of life) and above Andromeda, the little constellation Triangulum and the queen Cassiopeia (Andromedas mother) with her husband king Cepheus. Perseus expresses into Taurus, so will be explained there.

Important stars are: Alrescha (the upward fish), Kaffa and Menkar of the head of Cetus, Sheratan, Hamal and Botein of Aries, Mirach and Almach of Andromeda, Shedar, Caph and Ruchbah of Cassiopeia.

Aries is of cardinal fire. Traditionally Aries is about new beginnings (Aries the partly evolved Roman counterpart of Greek's Mars). Aries is about the Self - defining oneself and the ow ways with self confidence. Contemplation, new beginnings, leadership, action, bravery etc. are other themes. Very alike Mars energy...

When we now take the energies of Andromeda and Cetus into count, we get the impression of entrapment, enslavement, limitations and obstacles on our way/path to find our own true self. The limitations we put on ourselves are often resulting from the conformity pushed upon us for various reasons - it does not necessarily mean, others want anything bad for us, most people act of their own best knowing, which does not always match with our own "good".

The head of Cetus: The head is where we process our plans of how to deal with our fears and limitations. W:e can either create the unpredictable "monster" to try to kind of avoid our fears or we can bravely face them and find better solutions - to slay the monster and setting ourselves free.....

Andromeda: A beautiful and famous Galaxy and Myth. She's the entrapped one and luckily she had Perseus to come to rescue her from the monster - we have both energies within us - we only need to decide. Then we can, full of energy and life force go on and create what we wish for ourselves - go on, with our evolutionary path as an Individual as well as Humanity as a whole.
