A Large Camel Is Seen Crossing A Vast And Forbidding Desert is the image at Leo 25°. It is a symbol of self-sufficiency so its rule by Aries makes sense on that singular score. What is ahead is a long and exhausting adventure (sound familiar) and the camel symbolizes our ability to sustain ourselves independently, with no outside resource. In a sense it was easy for the spiritual ascetic of the previous image to give himself over to god, relying on the kindness of strangers; and just as Aries is a counterpoint to Pisces, we see here that self-reliance is the order of the day. The path we are on is always also something of an occult path. We must be emotionally self-contained, absorbing all that we have learned from life thus far, and be willing to face the nothingness (desert) that is ahead of us all. Aries-ruled symbols always carry a new lease on life and so let us now imagine that we are given such license.
