Loret is also the chlestic sign of force, intellect, intelligence, intuition, spirituality, creativity, harmony, cleverness, rationality, creative force, harmony, cleverness, power, and intelligence. Also known as the “Lovers” or the “hereditary” signs, LOTRISTS are often regarded as stubborn, obstinate, inflexible, stubborn, fickle, emotional, moody, sentimental, visionary, and versatile. They are deeply in touch with their sensual and emotional side, but also sensitive to the spiritual and intellectual aspects as well.
The zodiac signs – Aries (the ram), Taurus (the bull), Gemini (the twins), Cancer (the crab), Leo (the lion), Virgo (the virgin), Libra (the scales). The influence of this zodiac on a Loret Ioty may be strong, depending on the personal qualities of the individual born under that sign; however, the one and only true ruling star in this tie is the Sun, the planet of creation and of light. So here are some of the many signs, and their effects on Loret Ioty (the Sun) and how each has an effect on its bearer:
The Sun is one of the four cardinal signs – the most ancient and basic ones, and therefore the first one we encounter in astrology. It represents the energy and the bodily actions that make up life. The Sun is the one of the two signs of nature, or the animal world. The first element to appear in creation is water, by which the Earth is created. When the Sun emerges from the earth, he leaves a trail of light that is visible throughout the nighttime, called the “Eclipse” that is a symbol of the triumph of good over evil.
The presence of the Sun reminds us that while there may be a change, there is a stability that must be preserved at all costs. For this reason the Loret Ioty is an enemy of change, and for this reason the lotre yang has been associated with it throughout the ages. In ancient mythology, it was the Sun that helped the mortal to rise above the other mortals, as a demigod who strove to rule the other gods. It was also the Sun that helped in the materialization of vegetation, plants being the progenitor of all life upon Earth.
In Indonesia, the people who were most closely associated with the Sun were the people of Bali, the Sun God is present in almost every household and temple. The early Chinese, who also worships the Sun God, adopted the Loret Ioty as a symbol of prosperity and good fortune for their deities, it is also the origin of the idea of using the lotus flower in Feng Shui. The ancient Egyptians, who worships the Sun God as the god of knowledge and learning, adopted the Loret Ioty as a god of learning and knowledge, one of many important gods of that culture. Finally, the Incan people, who believed that the Sun God provided light, comfort, healing and wisdom, adopted the Loret Ioty as a symbol of protection from evil spirits, an idea captured by the tattoo of the Loret Ioty.
The Loret Ioty is now a common symbol in many parts of South and Central Asia, particularly in parts of Java, Borneo, Sumatra, and Bali. While the primary meaning remains the same, different regions have adapted the original meaning in different ways, with one area of the country, the cities of Harare and Kisumu adopting two entirely different connotations, with one meaning bravery and protection, and the other being fertility and wealth. It is here, too, that the two connotations are sometimes confused, with the courage/protection meaning sometimes taking precedence over the fertility and wealth one. It is interesting to note that, in a similar fashion to how the Western cultures have Christian or other religious connotations, Indian societies also have their own unique and highly colourful spiritual meanings. The concept of the Loret Ioty being the symbol for knowledge and wisdom is probably the most common, but in many parts of India, especially in the rural areas, it is considered much more than this. This has lead many Indians to adopt the Loret Ioty as the emblem of their love and respect for their Gods, both in Hinduism and Buddhism, where it is seen as a depiction of the Sun God.
