Aries 12: A flock of wild geese
Libra 12: Miners emerging from a mine

The first theme concerns GROUPS. The collective noun flock descends from the Old English flocc (a group of persons, company, and troop) and is related to the Old Norse flokkr (crowd, troop, and band) and the Middle Low German vlocke (crowd, flock, sheep). The word itself means “a group of animals that live, travel, or feed together”, “a group of people under the leadership of one person”, and “a large crowd or number.” A miner is “one whose work or business it is to extract ore or minerals from the earth.” The keyword here is miners, the plural of miner, and thus some quantity is indicated, a group of indeterminate number.
A second theme concerns the EARTH or the ENVIRONMENT. Recall that a miner is one who extracts minerals from the earth. A mine is “an excavation in the earth from which ore or minerals can be extracted.” The word wild descends from the Indo-European (IE) root welt- which means “woods, wild.” Paronyms include weald (an area of open or forested country), wold (an unforested rolling plain), and wilderness (an unsettled, uncultivated region left in its natural condition).
A third theme concerns WILDLIFE. First, there’s the keyword geese, the plural of goose, which refers to “any of various wild or domesticated water birds of the family Anatidae.” Second, as shown above, sheep are implied in the etymology of flock. Third, among the paronyms of the keyword wild are the words vole (any of various rodents of the genus Microtus) and wildebeest (African antelope). Finally, one of the paronyms of emerging is the word merganser which refers to “any of various fish-eating diving ducks of the genus Mergus.”
