I'm incredibly excited to share this new post. I've been waiting to release it and couldn't hold it out any longer. I hope this enLIGHTens your brain and expands your view of the Universe. I'm very fascinated by all things cosmos AND symbols, so this is the perfect recipe for a flavorful finding.
The origins of the swastika are beyond time. Even the earliest uses of it fail to signify what it meant to the people at the time. The earliest recordings of it's meaning are as a symbol of good fortune, a sun sign or the movement of cycles. But those recordings are thousands of years after the oldest found swastikas. So where still left to wonder - where did it come from?
Since the swazi is so old perhaps it's birthplace was in the stars? The ancients used star groups like the Big Dipper, to tell seasons and direction, there's no doubt the ol' dancing dipper held a significance. It dances in a circle around Polaris (The North Star) Polaris is the only star that doesn't move and is used to measure latitude. The turning of the seasons was vastly more important if you lived in nature like our ancient grandpas and grandmas. Perhaps they used the swazi to show another person the 'turning of the seasons'. They could've used it as a type of calendar to keep track of the seasons, the cycles. The swazi is commonly known as a symbol of the Sun and of cycles. It's for these reasons I suggest that the Big Dipper was the inspiration for the fist carvings of swastikas.

On a clear night in the northern hemisphere, you can find north with a little bit of stellar constellation knowledge. If you can find the Big Dipper (Ursa Major) then it is simple to find the North Star (Polaris). If you follow the imaginary line from the tip of the 'cup' of the Big Dipper, you will find The North Star.
