Back again from Aries 3............thinking on this symbol as the Self.

Somewhere, tink, at the end of a post you mentioned 'the five' .........sorry I can't find it but its probably relevant.

What this carrying could be self-knowledge...........the imprint of her "I am'................who she has the potential to become.

2 & 3 =5.............the number of man and often seen as a picture of a body with arms and legs outstretched........the pentagram

Five points balanced to make wholeness.

Throughout our lives we're constantly learning and growing. As children we observe and are taught those things considered necessary for us to survive on our own.
Later on we continue to explore and experiment.
Physically we discover how to care for and nourish our bodies.......we choose what suits us best.
Emotionally we learn through our relationships........learning to find the balance between give and take.
Mentally we learn to think for ourselves, make wise & foolish decisions, acquire knowledge...........again our choice what that will be.
We discover and develop our skills and talents, how they can be used to make a living.

Our life experiences, both good and bad, add to the growth and gradually we learn to take responsibility for our progress, understanding that we are the source , the creator of our lives.

That is only four.................the fifth is Spirit and until we take the responsibility of seeing ourself as the source of our spirituality we can't be truly whole.
Believing the Divine Presence is a being outside of themself disconnects a person from their source...........the small flame of Spirit that is the One that connects us to the All. It separates.
We give away the right to control our own spiritual progress by allowing others to lay down rules and doctrines that we must follow or else. We give away our personal power and become like the donkeys suffering under an oppressive master.

We empower ourselves when we remove ourselves from under that yoke.......perhaps that is when the glimmer of Spring appears .........the first step to lifting the veil.

A most informative site about the number 5.............interesting that it corresponds to Mars, the ruler of Aries.
