As Ralph Waldo Emerson wisely observed, "The fruit is in the seed." Think about it: one apple seed, for instance, holds the potential for all the fruits on all the trees that may come from that single kernel. Holding it is like holding a thousand forests in the palm of your hand!
When Aries arrives (Nissan in Hebrew), we are like that seed. Our choices, our words, our actions, and our plans are packed with immense raw potential this month. The Rav often referenced seeds when speaking of Aries because this month marks the beginning of the astrological cycle. As with anything in its infancy, Aries offers us a unique opportunity to initiate great growth and transformation. And because Aries is the first sign in the zodiac, it also serves as the gateway to all the other signs to come--powering the changes it inspires to last the entire year and beyond.
