The cross is an archetype found in all cultures, mostly in a magical context, where it has power as the route to enlightenment, and as a symbol of the inner solar power. Crosses symbolize spirituality and healing, and are seen as the meeting place of divine energies.
The 4 points of a cross represent self, nature, wisdom, and higher power or being. They suggest transition, balance, faith, unity, temperance, hope, and life. Crosses represent relationships, unions and a need for a deeper connection to something. It is unique in its all-inclusive symbolism, which covers the Sun god, the Earth goddess, the life-giver, the great tree and the earth energies.
