As most people, I was always interested in learning more about "my sign" and would pick up an astrology book or newspaper (before the internet) to read my horoscope. Little did I know that I would seriously study Jyotish (Vedic Astrology) decades later. I am months away from starting my "Mercury Period" (Mercury Dasha), and recently, an overwhelming desire ignited in me to transfer and teach all of my knowledge of esoteric subjects to mainstream community members. Where did this desire come from?
It came from the quickly approaching appearance of my Mercury planet in the constellation of Virgo in the 9th House "taking the stage". So, what does that mean?Mercury is the planet of communication. Virgo is symbolic of health. And the 9th House is the house of Higher Education. If you blend all those meanings, you get a "Health Educator".
The idea of using green and orange represent the 4th and 2nd Chakras respectively. The 4th Chakra (green) symbolizes the heart area (love for community). The 2nd Chakra (orange) symbolizes the sacral area (love for creativity). I wanted a logo that expressed communication and community, thus a circle shape symbolizing the world with networks of "messages" and two arms hugging our community. Wella!
