The Sabian Symbol for the Sun is Virgo 6: A MERRY-GO-ROUND
Do you feel like you’re going around in circles? Doing the same thing day in and day out? Do you want to get off the cycle of habits that you find yourself doing? Thinking?
There’s a need to see definite possibilities and the evidence of advancement in our life and to feel as though we are making progress towards a goal or a clear outcome. This image can relate to any situation where we feel stuck in repetitive or unprogressive ruts. Relationships, marriages, jobs and everyday chores or habits can have you running around in circles landing you right back in the same place. This can lead you to wonder if you should just hold on tight, wait to see if the thing will ever eventually stop or jump off. Jumping off whilst things are still in motion can actually feel life threatening. The desire, longing or even addiction to things, people, places, substances, etc., can put a hold on your life to the point where you can’t see a way out. Just when you may think you’ve seen a way to get off, or out, you’re back in the same situation, emotion or location. However, each time you return to what feels like the same place, if you’ve been watchful, you’ve had the opportunity to look at other alternatives, answers or possibilities. At some stage, though, there will need to be a decision made: do you want to keep going round and round, or do you want to stop repetitive situations or reactions and get off?
