Coin Name : Cydra
Edition Name: The Fourth House
Finish: Antique Gold
2014 – 50 coins
Cydra Vaux was Gregson Vaux’s sister. She died on July 13, 2013 at the age of 51, after battling cancer for many years. This coin design is to honor her memory.
This edition features black and blue resin enamel on antique gold. The name comes from one of Cydra’s favorite songs, which was played at her memorial service:
When the moon is in the Seventh House
And Jupiter aligns with Mars
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars
This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius
The Age of Aquarius
Harmony and understanding
Sympathy and trust abounding
No more falsehoods or derisions
Golden living dreams of visions
Mystic crystal revelation
And the minds true liberation
Cydra was not a believer in astrology, although she did love the poetry and art that were sometimes associated with it. She greatly loved this song because she was strongly attracted to the hope and free spirit that was associated with the hippy movements of the 1960s and early 1970s.
The seventh astrological house is ruled by Aquarius, but Cydra was born on June 28 and her astrological sign was cancer, which rules the fourth house. It is an irony that it was the disease cancer which finally ended her life. In a sense, Cydra’s birth, life, and death were associated with the fourth house.
