Circinus + Crux Constellations
Perfection - Completion - Continuity
Circinus and Crux are two of the 88 modern constellations. Circinus refers to a compass, an instrument used for drawing circles and arcs. The circle is one of the most widely recognized symbols of completeness, cycles, and perfection. Crux refers to a cross, or two perpendicular lines dividing each other in half; a representation of unity and structure.
Both Circinus and Crux are among the most ancient human symbols, appearing continually in cultures around the globe, and have elements of symmetry and beauty within their form.
Upright, this card symbolizes truth and perfection, as well as the concept of completion. This may manifest itself in feelings of purpose, appreciation, trust, and honor.
The reverse is not necessarily the opposite of this reading, but rather, this sense of completion comes with less ease.
