rays of sun, tree of leaves, crescent moon and stars growth and fullness, renew in peace
This almond-shaped pendant shows two different aspects of the life of a tree. On one side, the rays of the sun emanate from behind a tree crowned with many leaves. This symbolizes the powerful heat and light of summer, a time of growth and fullness.
On the other side, the tree has bare branches, and is accompanied by a crescent moon and stars. This symbolizes quiet rest and regeneration, allowing the tree to conserve its energy for the next part of the cycle.
The two images together are meant to remind us that it take reflection as well as momentum to bring about a Transformation of Spirit that can lead to an enriched life.
