Sivan is the month associated with the Zodiac Sign of Gemini and
the Tribe of Zebulon. Gemini - "The Twins" - is the only Zodiac Sign
whose symbol is exclusively human and specifically androgynous, in that
the male and female are both equally represented in this Mutable Air
(Transforming Thought) sign.
How perfect is that as a symbol for the
month during which we celebrate the giving of the Torah to ALL Am
Yisrael - men and women alike? The Kiruvim ("Cherubim") atop the Holy
Ark in the Tabernacle are "The Twins" - male and female - who face each
other and whose wings touch and it is from between those wings, atop the
Ark, that G*d speaks to us. G*d speaks to us from the space where male
and female energies meet. The gift of Torah is for everyone.
