ARIES

Since Abraham's time the ram has signified

sacrifice.

But in the new age it becomes clear that we cannot sacrifice our children; we have to sacrifice ourselves, to conform to the great universal or cosmic law under which everything is self-sacrifice – from the mother suns to the electrons in a single continuous oblation. When man has learned this fact he will become free of his limitations because no such sacrifice of oneself is ever in vain.

Aries is also the symbol of springtime and the continuous joyful

renewal

of all things. “Sacrifice is the great revealer of values.”[1] Limit not thy

offering

to “the giving up of earthly goods or the denial of some desires and yearnings, but let every thought and every work and every enjoyment be an offering to God within thee.”[2]


“Only the one who offers his whole nature, finds the Self.”[3]
