IN06 Cross Of Joy
The Celtic cross we recognise today evolved from the Chi-Rho that consists of the two Greek letters X (chi) and P (rho) which was enclosed within a circle, and the ancient Celtic divine sun wheel. The wheel symbolises God, the motionless mover, the centre has no dimensions and cannot turn, yet all moves around it. The round symbolises female energy and the cross symbolises male energy, the seasons and the four directions of movement. Superimposed they express harmony and balance.
Blue in the cross represents clear thinking and thoughtfulness, Purple the mix of the fire of red and calm of blue becomes power and sublimation and is the colour of the Cardinals robe.
