17. THE SAND WOMAN:
Please scroll down for description and statement
The scene is a sunny day on the beach. Five small children have undertaken the ambitious task of building a woman out of sand. One young girl, somewhat older than the others, works at the head. Two little twin girls, dressed in bright orange and wearing white sunbonnets, are holding up a banner bearing a double-moon symbol. A little boy walks past with a balloon imprinted with this same symbol and another little boy has just released two of these balloons, which now float above the beach. The sand woman has this symbol in her third eye region.
The girl is now being rebuilt "from the ground up." The alchemists would refer to this as the "spiritization of matter"; and one can see specks of the "alchemical gold" in the reclining figure--a sign that the process has begun.
The double-moon symbol represents the kind of energies operating at this point: nurturing, receptive, protective; in short, the energies embodied in the zodiacal sign Cancer.
Always we come to a point in our growth process when we can no longer do it alone. We need help and we invariably attract just the person, book or situation that will carry us through--until the next time. [SOLD]
