The Rose Cross (also called Rosy Cross and Rose Croix) is a symbol associated mainly with the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. It contains the attributes for the Elements, the Planets, the Hebrew alphabet, Alchemical principles, the Hexagram and Pentagram, the Sephiroth of the Tree of Life, and the letters INRI. The four arms of the cross belong to the four elements and have pentacles placed upon them. The center portion belongs to the Holy Spirit and the planets. The petals of the rose refer to the 22 paths on the Tree of Life and the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet. Below the rose, is the hexagram with the planets. The cross is sometimes associated with the ancient Egyptian Ankh, the symbol of eternal life and the rose considered a symbol of the Dawn or resurrection. The Cross and Rose together, therefore, symbolize the Dawn of Eternal Life which all of us hope for by the advent of a Redeemer.
