Third sign of the circle of destiny which rules during the period from 15.12. until 15.01. is called Cherry. In BiH tradition, cherry is a tree which takes a special place in the cult of the dead since its fruits are eaten by birds. Since a bird in mythological imagery is a symbol of a soul in the past it was a custom to plant cherry tree in graveyards. It was believed that a cherry growing near a graveyard will help a soul of a mejit (deceased) to free himself of sins, each time when a bird would eat its fruit. Among the folk cherry fruits are called "bird’s provision" or "ptičja nafaka".

Female cherry

A female cherry tends to take the initiative in the seduction process, therefore she doesn’t hesitate to give compliments to a man she likes. Her tactic spurs her to more steps, since members of this sign have a hard time coping with rejection and disinterest of the other party. In the end when she conquers the man she likes, whether through the role of a gentle and vulnerable woman or an aggressive flirt, the next step is subjugating her partner in order to have control over him. Despite all of this, female cherry is insecure and possessive deep inside. Mentioned energy and persistence she doesn’t transfer onto work and career since she is not overtly hard working and dedicated to work. She is not lazy but her personal life affects her business enthusiasm. If in that segment everything functions she is then dedicated to work. In most cases work is a necessary evil, although she respects financial independence. Though she has a tendency to be in leading roles, she more prefers team work. Tendency towards panicking is the result of her weak relationship with stress and pressure.

Male cherry

Members of this sign, male and female, can be recognized easily according to the way they dress which is always sports like and carefree. Also, the less clothes they wear the freer they feel. Male cherry is playful, he likes challenges, to be conquered and to conquer, he possesses a characteristic naivety, and when hurt he cannot stay angry for long. He’s not a vengeful person. He loves sex and everything connected to it therefore experiments in that field are not foreign to him. This is certainly the most erotic sign in the circle of destiny. He can be jealous, possessive but also stubborn. From his partner he desires attention since that fulfils him. She needs to be proactive and broadminded since he is magnetically attracted to these types of women. He is a gourmand but also prefers healthy food and such a way of life. In business he is not content with only one activity and a large part of men under this sign earns “on the side”. They’re good business partners and have no issues fitting into any work environment.


Bosnian circle of destiny

Bosnian horoscope or Bosnian circle of destiny is based on an old division of the year into two parts summer and winter. That is why there is in the horoscope a dualistic division into six signs of light and six signs of darkness which together represent two principles i.e. good and evil and male and female sex. That's why every sign begins within a middle of one and ends in the middle of another month. The length of one sign begins and ends on the 15th of a month at noon exactly.

Sun and moon have a dominant influence over the Bosnian circle of destiny, and they also impact life on our planet the most. Signs over which the moon presides are usually family oriented, more prone to expressing feelings and in an extent more responsible. But we shouldn’t forget in this case the influence of earth itself which can sometimes have a more pronounced influence on people during winter times, even more so than the moon, because during the winter the sky is often covered with thick clouds and the sun and moon are distant i.e. hidden.

Light signs are the complete opposite to the dark ones and that difference is especially evident in their action, inclination to risk, changes and adventures. Strengthening of the sun’s rays, acceleration of the natural rhythm, constant weather changes, or even summer storms, perfectly describe the nature of people born during one of the six light signs. Because of it they are more prone to stress, annoyance, possessiveness, abrupt mood swings.

The names of the signs in the horoscope are not coincidental, they stem from Bosnian mythology arising from the ancient cult of the Grand Mother, whose worship dates from the Neolithic all the way to the Illyrians and until today. Even though the cult influence is not pronounced like during the ancient times it is still present in numerous segments of folk belief and mythological phenomena. The main signs of the horoscope are, the snake and dragon which represent two opposing sides which are at the same time permeate one another but also divide and they signify beginning and the end. They are the alpha and omega of the circle of destiny. In the middle of the circle the position has been taken by Granddad (Did, Djed) and Grandma or Baba, priest of the Bogomils and his wife, which can also be referred to as Illyrian divine couple Vidasus and Thana or solar god and lunar goddess.

In accordance to the dualistic teachings of the Bogomils the Bosnian circle of destiny dealt with both material and spiritual life of individuals, helping them to know themselves and their role in life, and it transformed all that was negative into the positive. That’s why the circle of destiny is nothing more than a Bogomil wheel of reincarnation through which the human soul passes through in order to reach final liberation. On that journey the soul takes both human and animal forms, but also vegetative forms, trying to teach us empathy and need to help one another, no matter what our physical form looks like nor where we come from. From the aspect of Bogomil philosophy each human being seeks liberation from negative elements of their karma in order to experience enlightenment in the end. The main mover of the circle of destiny are human ego, malice, greed, jealousy but also man as a dualistic being has the potential to perceive evil and to cleanse and purify himself of it through specific cycles, and achieve enlightenment. Illustration and the search through signs of the circle of destiny is best explained if we compare it to searching for gold, when the diggers would dig tons and tons of sand in order to find after exhausting work a few pebbles of gold.

Every man carries in himself the characteristics of all signs of the circle of destiny but the most dominant ones are from the sign during whose rain he was born. Also every sign has his own energy, vibration, which forms an individual and introduces into the new cycle. That’s why in the Bosnian horoscope the sign in which one is born represents his starting position from which the soul begins its journey further in the circle of destiny. That circle is physical and spiritual. We can follow it in the material and spiritual level from birth to death – we are born and we grow, we change constantly both physically and mentally, in order for that process to stop on one level and continue on another.

Relationships between people are defined by a basic division to male and female sex and the need for them to be combined in a whole. A large part of that need for a whole is described by the word love, which is as an occurrence the subject of all possible studies from the psychological, endocrinological, all the way to molecular and biochemical. All of these studies fulfilled some parameters, explained certain mechanisms, but did not define the thing in its entirety.

The circle of destiny, as all things in nature, is based on two opposite poles which attract each other. The basics of this division are the two lights - luminaries, Sun and Moon, which represent a man and a woman which are a unique mechanism connected by numerous aspects and rules, beginning with moon phases all the way to the exaltation of these two bodies. The sun represents the male principle and exalts in the sign of the Grandfather, first of six male signs of the circle of destiny, while the moon represents the female principle which exalts in the snake, the first sign which begins the dark part of the year. There is another division which constitutes universal couples - Grandmother and Grandfather; the dragon and the snake which are positioned at the beginning and the end of the circle of destiny. They are considered to be earthly and heavenly love couples through which life energy and fertility flows. Since love is the most important segment of this energy road in the Bosnian horoscope there is a part which deals with analysis and review of mutual emotional matching of signs, which is called Anzotika, according to the name of the ancient Illyrian goddess of love.
