Parsifal and His Wheel

I just posted (in the sidebar) the image I’m using as an on-line icon for this site. There’s a story behind it. The “hoop-and-stick” of the old children’s hoop-rolling game struck me as a perfect analogy for the Celtic Cross spread, with its circular “cross” and vertical “staff” sections (never mind that the hoop is rotating in the wrong direction). It also reflects the old idea that the cross shows progress in the matter itself – the timeline and history – while the staff reflects the querent’s reactions to emerging  developments that lead to the outcome. The child in the image is an extension of the stick and represents the figurative  “staff.”
