The Sun On Scorpio 11: A Drowning Man Is Being Rescued
The Sabian Symbol for the Sun today is Scorpio 11: A DROWNING MAN IS BEING RESCUED
… how are you feeling? Are you drowning not waving? Waving, not drowning? Are you signalling that you need somehow to be rescued? I realise that the feeling of the need of being ‘rescued’ is not particularly hip or groovy in this so-called New Age = we have to be self sufficient. However, there is no harm in showing where you really are at… and, it’s not a negative thing to step in to help others – if they are signalling that that is what they truly want (or need).
The following is from my book The Sabian Oracle: 360 Degrees Of Wisdom –
Commentary: ‘A Drowning Man is Being Rescued’ is a symbol of difficulties, relief, rescue and resuscitation. The ‘Drowning Man’ often indicates someone who’s fallen into something that is out of his or her control and out of their depth. They can feel like they’re being overpowered by their inability to cope with life. This can manifest on any level, emotionally, physically or spiritually. Here, he is shown as ‘Being Rescued’, and help is, or soon will be, nearby.
Oracle: We can feel like we are suffocated by our marriage, job, friendships, life path, etc., or through the lack of these things. Although this Symbol speaks of a ‘Rescuing’, and this may indeed be at hand, sometimes it’s essential that we admit to the fact that we are losing control or ‘Drowning’ before a ‘Rescue’ can even begin to take place. People will often lend a hand and spontaneously arrive on the scene to help others out, but they need to know the depths of the situation that’s occurring. As the ‘Man’ in this Symbol is ‘Being Rescued’, it shows that the ‘Drowning’ has been noticed and that ‘Rescue’ or relief is imminent. People may indeed turn up to help out or this may be a more lonely passage, with you having to rely on yourself. However, continuing to struggle on alone may not solve anything – indeed, struggling can make things worse. This Symbol can also point to co-dependent types of relationships where there is a continual need to be available, to be on hand, and to be reliable. This can be a tiring responsibility for the ‘Rescuer’ as well as for the ‘Drowning’ person. A true ‘Rescue’ is often found when we look after our own needs, even if it entails a hand-up from someone else along the way. Concentrate on the shore, even if it feels as though it’s miles away from you. Reconnect with what’s possible and real, earth yourself and know that help is at hand, even if it’s your higher self that is performing the ‘Rescue’. Soon you’ll be able to “breathe” easily again.

The Caution: Panicking in order to draw help rather than learning how to cope. Constantly finding reasons for losing control of situations. Getting into deep water on a regular basis.
