Item Description

Stars are important this time of year. We are familiar with the story of the North Star with a bright light that led the Magi to the infant Christ. Event more spectacular is the star Orion which is especially radiant this time of year. It was named for the mythological hunter Orion that was punished with blindness for a horrific act towards beautiful Oenopion. Late, his repented heart brought healing as he fixed his eyes on the eastward Isles of Lemnos and the healing rays of the sun restored his sight. This symbolic legend is germane to the theme of renewal, illumination of inner spirituality, and clarity of focus onto what is important in life. Looking to the rising sun to awaken our souls vision to that which is to dawn from within each of us.
