At the center of the home, the hearth
provides warmth and LIGHT, food and protection.
Symbolizes love, fertility and life. Related to ANDROGYNE,
with the masculine fire and the feminine receptacle. Hospitality and sanctuary
go along with feelings of protection. Carries with it omens; any anomaly in kindling
or burning predicts a simliar event to members of the house.
