Your Sabian Symbols are a template to the course and unfolding of your life. A chart is like a snap-shot in time – it is a moment of significance that is ripe with meaning and guidance. The Sabian Symbols for your chart can show up in many ways in your life – in a literal way, in an emotional, spiritual or intellectual sense. You may find that some of them seem to map others, or events in your life, and this can be true in ways that are amazing – especially with the Sabian Symbols – but all of it is a reflection of that moment in time that you were born.

TWO PEOPLE, AT WIDELY DIFFERENT POINTS, ARE IN CONVERSATION WITH EACH OTHER BY MEANS OF TELEPATHY

This Symbol speaks of psychic and clairvoyant communication with others and the ability to be able to pick up on what others are thinking. You can communicate with someone and it is not always necessary to be physically face-to-face, or on the phone or emailing them or the like. You can have bonds with people that are unaffected by distance or actually being in touch with each other. Let your heart tell you that you are always in their company and there is no need to feel alone. Keeping others in your mind and heart will communicate something to them, and probably they back to you. Conquering space and time limitations. Psychic and mental communication. Sharing ideas. The ‘other person’ knowing what is felt or thought. Being on the same frequency.

The Caution: Blocking out psychic awareness because of fear. Manipulating others by subtle means. Mind and thought control. Feeling very separated by time and space.

WORLD FAMOUS PIANIST GIVING A CONCERT PERFORMANCE

This Symbol speaks of the need to be able to show one’s talents, skills or unique abilities to others, whether it’s in a ‘Performance’, or through just being oneself. In the situation facing you, it is not always enough to know that you are highly skilled, or have others say how wonderful you are, the proof is in expressing those skills in the real world and creating something as a result. The ‘Performance’ should spring from a love of what one is doing, whether it is music, performing, speaking or some other form of expression. True rewards come from being well rehearsed and prepared to share your talent with others as well as acknowledging the talents of others. Smugness versus talent. A validation of social standing. Hands-on creativity. Singing. Music. Playing out front or in the band. Having an adoring public. Repertoires. Practice.

TWO DUTCH CHILDREN TALKING AND STUDYING THEIR LESSONS TOGETHER

This Symbol shows that you should be able to feel relaxed and comfortable with friends and able to speak your own truth. There’s a need for clarity and for those of like mind to communicate spontaneous and creative ideas with each other. Feeling cut off and isolated because your beliefs or language are different from other people can propel you to finding those you can share your thoughts or your ‘studies’ with. There is usually, or should be, at least one person around you who can give you advice or lend you an ear when you need to express yourself in your own unique way to someone who understands. Sharing innocent and carefree thoughts and ideals. Exchanging views with like-minded individuals. Finding a soul mate. Chitchatting about everyday life. Talking for hours.

A BOMB WHICH FAILED TO EXPLODE IS NOW SAFELY HIDDEN FROM DISCOVERY

This Symbol shows that explosive elements need discharging. Pressure cooker energy needs to be released, but it often needs to be done slowly and carefully. By keeping a sense of control, one can handle wild situations, elements or people without things getting out of hand. Be an example to others of how calmness and quiet can take the charge out of things. Take whatever opportunities you can to defuse elements as an explosion often damages more than is expected. You may have to hide something away so things don’t get crazy, but with some careful thought, all should be well. Tantrums and frustrations. Rash emotional actions and decisions. Intelligence organizations. Valuable lessons of self restraint. Simmering tempers. Defusing situations.

THREE FLEDGLINGS IN A NEST HIGH UP IN A TREE

This Symbol implies a situation of people sharing their space, living together and cohabitating as they grow and mature. Situations are likely to be full of potential and promise for the future. The spirit may not be quite ready to fly on its own and still be in need of the “mother” – or the company of siblings and friends – to sustain, protect and nourish. The time for independence will come, and probably soon, however it may be too soon to break out on your own. Know that you will be able to rise up and leave and venture out on your own. Although there can sometimes be a feeling of being alone and neglected, there is still a sense of safety. Integration of spirit, soul and body. Discovering a new sense of being. Being high up and detached. Nests and tree houses. Sibling rivalry. Working at getting along. House mates.

DANCING COUPLES CROWD THE BARN IN A HARVEST FESTIVAL

This Symbol shows the need to regularly celebrate life and its bounty and harvest. When the work’s been done, achievements have been made and there is a sense of security and ‘Harvest’ in the air, it is time to celebrate with one another. Gathering people together, there is a need to get back to a simple, conservative level of enjoyment. There’s a sense of being in tune with seasonal rhythms and taking some time out to enjoy and de-stress. The feeling of a healthy heart and a healthy mind, while taking a break from the struggles of providing, can bring joy to everyone. See if you can take time out to celebrate and to enjoy your relationships, friends and environment. Celebrating the warmth and providence of the Earth. The joy of nature’s harvest. Joining others to celebrate. Rhythmical or seasonal adjustments. Dancing. Barns and dance halls.

CAREFREE CHILDREN SKATING ON ICE

This Symbol speaks of children having to tread carefully and watchfully. Situations are likely to come up where you may not know exactly what to do in challenging situations. If you feel like you’re on “thin ice” you may feel like you’re walking on eggshells; planning each step as you go and listening for cracks the entire time. If you don’t acknowledge changes and adjust yourself accordingly you may be at a disadvantage. Be wary of blindly rushing into anything – you may get to the point where you can’t safely return to where you began. If, however, you set out to have fun while being mindful of your environment, this could be a fun filled time with lots of shared experiences with good friends. Skating over difficulties. Finding creative and childlike solutions to problems. Treading on eggshells. Children facing physical or emotional hardship. Parents that crack up.

A GREEK MUSE WEIGHING NEW BORN TWINS IN GOLDEN SCALES

This Symbol shows the ability, or the necessity, of being able to weigh up seemingly similar things and being able to make distinctions between them. In a creative or intuitive way you may be pressed into making judgments and decisions, but the elements of your judgment are, in many ways, exactly the same. The choices can be confusing because they essentially lead to the same result. This situation is probably brand new; maybe the answer lies in taking an intuitive ‘punt’, or waiting for the solutions to become more clear-cut. Comparisons and similarities. Weighing things up. The law and lawyers. Seeking subtle differences. Measured responses. Using intuition. Inspiration. Fairness. Equality.

The Caution: Judgmental opinions about things that are essentially equal. Being nit-picky. Constantly weighing things up instead of just accepting them. Tipping the scales.

AN INDIAN GIRL INTRODUCES HER COLLEGE BOYFRIEND TO HER ASSEMBLED TRIBE

This Symbol implies that you may find yourself bridging the gap between situations or people that are inherently foreign to each other or previously unknown and unexplored. By bridging the worlds between people, you invite richness into your life and the lives of others that may not have been possible if you’d stuck to your culture, your ethnicity, your own side of the tracks. It is your deeply felt understanding of both situations and the respect with which you are held in both situations that makes their mutual acceptance possible. This is about opening your heart to find the rewards that are waiting. Challenging or going against the status-quo. Bringing in new intellectual elements Or a natural, earth-based attitude to stuffy environments. Clans, tribes. New lovers. Foreigners.

The Caution: Upsetting people with alternative behavior. Choosing people who won’t fit in. Ignoring tradition. Judging people by social standards. Prejudice. Barriers. Rebellion.

A DAUGHTER OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION

This Symbol shows the ability or the need to stand up for an ideal or a situation that demands your involvement. This could be about political or social revolution, or fighting to change the status quo. Relying on old traditions that were, in their day, radical and transforming, may no longer work. The difficulty is that these traditions are more predictable, conservative values that may no longer seem relevant to today’s needs and aspirations. Despite your inner feelings of modern freedom, you may come up against those that are more conservative and unmoving. Being bound by social conditioning. Leading the charge to break down the barriers of tradition. Sacrificing oneself for the larger picture. Wanting change. Fighting the norm.

The Caution: Supporting battles that have already been won. False feelings of superiority. Narrow-minded conservatism. Glorifying the past. Having to be ‘in the club’ to be accepted.

THE PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC OR THE RULER OF ONE’S COUNTRY

This Symbol shows that it’s time to take charge, to expand your base of operations and to show that you have the integrity and the necessary energy to get things done.

A TEACHER GIVES NEW SYMBOLIC FORMS TO TRADITIONAL IMAGES

This Symbol implies that you have ideas or a message to spread, but you may be holding back because you think it has been done before – however, things done by you will have your personal stamp on them and they are best done your own way. Bring out something fresh and new and it will also revitalize those around you. Looking at things in a different light, you’ll revision old thought forms with new ones. Try to find new solutions to old ideas – you could revolutionize something. Be prepared to take a different stance or look at things from a new and fresh perspective.

A FLOCK OF WILD GEESE

Take your cue from the wild geese. When they fly in formation, they take turns in leading the way; when one gets tired or sick, another takes the lead. Spread your wings and seek freedom, taking note of ‘seasonal’ variations around you. Just remember to be mindful of your responsibilities to both yourself and others. Be a part of the group by contributing and promoting the joys of togetherness while keeping a sense of independence. Geese are known for forming lifelong partnerships, so marriage or partnership may indeed be a consideration in this situation. Aquarian ideals of brotherhood. Attunement to planetary rhythms. Spirit liberated from matter. Focused group activity and support. Choreography. Flying in the slipstream.

The Caution: Following the leader without knowing where you are going. Never knowing where to land, or where to ground your self. Taking off on wild goose chases.



Jupiter is on Aries 18

AN EMPTY HAMMOCK

This Symbol shows issues of working hard versus taking time out to relax. If you find that you are being too hard on yourself, this Symbol implies that you need to know when to stop, rest and recuperate. Regardless of how much one has to do, it’s no crime to stop to regain your strength. You needn’t sacrifice your opportunity to rest for someone else. Everyone is entitled to their share of peace and pleasure. How about lounging around and taking it easy for a change? Sometimes you need a chance to day dream. On the other hand, have you been slacking off and not getting into what you could be doing? Detachment. Abandonment. Having too much to do to be able to rest. Sleeping difficulties. Planning for days off or retirement. Having permission to stop.

The Caution: Deliberately pushing your self when in need of rest or not being involved in life’s complexities. Laying around and doing nothing. Being a lounge-lizard.

The Karmic Degree for Jupiter is Aries 17

TWO PRIM SPINSTERS SITTING TOGETHER IN SILENCE

This Symbol shows that quiet withdrawal might be just what you need. However, it is easy to become isolated in conservative, albeit moral, ideas. You may find that there is only a select, restricted group with whom you wish to associate. There can be a quiet knowing that doesn’t need a lot of words or emotional displays. Just be wary that this false sense of security doesn’t isolate you from change and growth. Unresolved issues can lead to stunted emotional responses. Look for opportunities to open up to new possibilities. Loosen up emotional blockages. Holding onto one’s original identity. Not wanting to compromise because of social expectations. Relationships that have a quiet knowing.

The Caution: Emotional insulation. Refusing relationship. Pretending to be something. Disapproval of younger, more vital energies. Being fussy and judgmental.

A MAGIC CARPET HOVERS OVER THE DEPRESSING REALITY OF EVERYDAY LIFE IN AN INDUSTRIAL AREA

By elevating ourselves above the everyday world we can transcend worry and strife. There is a clear message here that you can lift yourself above negative situations and by doing so, you can attain a calmer, more creative and spiritual life. With expanded awareness you can have an elevated perspective that reveals greater truths. However, be a little careful not to lose your self in the longing for escape or the exotic. You probably have to come back down to the earthly plane every now and then. Vehicles of transcendence. Elevated views. Transcending problems. Astral travel. Carpets and rugs that are special. Meditation. Levitation. Escapes through fantasy or film.

The Caution: Self defeating detachment from the every day world. Losing yourself in flights of fancy. Extreme longing for escape. Using drugs or alcohol to avoid life.

There are those around you who also depend on your ability to provide nourishment, both the literal food, and the symbolic, spiritual caring. Getting down to business and finding what nourishes will bring improvement and growth with small beginnings growing into fabulous and successful outcomes. This degree points to the mother hen in us all but we must be careful not to overprotect or fuss about our brood. Searching for sustenance. Being devoted to the nurturing of small beginnings. Concern for the essential, small details. Repetitive cycles of things that have to be done.

The Caution: Pointless searching where there is no nourishment left. Fussing around. Not letting people grow up and take responsibility for them selves. Being looked after.

THE SEED GROWS INTO KNOWLEDGE AND LIFE

This Symbol shows situations pregnant with meaning and significance. Something starts with a seed and grows until it becomes something reliable and strong. Sometimes, you may feel that you are not growing or developing properly, maybe dissatisfied at perceived failings. Things take time to develop and, rather than being rushed, need to be nurtured to develop. It is important to start small and grow, fertilizing and watering in order for things to grow and flourish. Remember that small and steady beginnings can lead to a beautiful flowering. This can indicate pregnancy or the inception of a new idea. Warning against grabbing for the fast dollar. Pregnancy, childbirth and growing up. Embryonic cells. The giving and receiving of lessons. The Kabala. The Tree of Life.

The Caution: Trying to do things that aren’t fully developed. Rushing and missing vital parts in the situation. Aborted attempts. Arrogance about how much one knows.

A PRIEST PERFORMING A MARRIAGE CEREMONY

This Symbol speaks of the ability, or the necessity, of bringing people together so they may enjoy, grow and learn from each other. It turns out that the simplest expressions of the heart and mind often need to be acknowledged in a ritualistic performance so that we feel we are indulging in the customs and traditions of our society. There is a need for a sense of blessing from a higher power. Whether this is about an actual ‘Marriage Ceremony’, a hand-fasting ceremony, or some other kind of bonding ritual, there’s a need for people to come together to make commitments and vows to each other. Sanctified unity. Expressions of loyalty, sacred vows. Making levels of commitment. Psychoanalysis that binds and bonds people together. Accepting the shadow. Ceremonies.

The Caution: Rigidly following established rules at the expense of ways that have greater personal relevance. The forcing of people together. Bondage to social expectations.

MANKIND’S VAST ENDURING EFFORT FOR KNOWLEDGE TRANSFERABLE FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION

This Symbol speaks of handing knowledge down through the ages so that the wisdom and teaching are not lost and people in successive generations may benefit from studying or knowing it. There is, or needs to be, an outreaching to others through awareness with this degree. Of course, there is always more to wisdom than just knowing; it’s what’s done with knowledge that creates wisdom. It is through knowledge and understanding that we can bridge the gap between ourselves and others and ensure that valuable lessons and insights are available to all. Interpreting and conveying ideas. Teaching by example. Wisdom of the ancestors. Knowledge handed down. Books. The spoken word. The gift of wisdom and insight.

A PERSON ALONE IN DEEP GLOOM. UNNOTICED, ANGELS ARE COMING TO THEIR AID

This Symbol shows help, encouragement and assistance coming when one is most in need of it. There can be an inclination to depression with this degree, but it seems that, particularly if faith is employed, there is always some redeeming event or someone helpful turns up and the “Gloom” is dispersed and the light returns to one’s life; there is a realization that things are getting better. It will dawn on you that you are being helped in some way; ‘Angels’ come to aid those who need them. Don’t be afraid to ask for assistance. Have hope, faith, trust and work on changing your attitude and watch hope return. Realizing you are not alone. Awareness of spiritual help. Angels, friends, helpers. Changes in the weather. Salvation versus depression. Counselors. People who lend a hand.

The Caution: Unrealistic reliance on spiritual agencies or help from others. Gloom. Not recognizing joy. Being alone and forgotten. Refusing help. Up one minute and down the next.


The Quest Degree for Uranus is Libra 30

THREE MOUNDS OF KNOWLEDGE ON A PHILOSOPHER’S HEAD

This Symbol speaks of having the ability to read spiritual understandings into physical objects. The “Philosopher’s Head” shows intelligence and knowledge, even without the need to say very much. Someone’s appearance, demeanor, dress and manners, several different aspects can be combined to result in a truly wise appraisal of someone’s intelligence. However, sometimes we need to pierce through appearances to see the truth of people and situations. With this degree, there can be a real talent for bringing abstract truths into reality and often the need to get one’s thoughts or beliefs out into the real world. However, be wary of constantly living in your head. Concentrating on philosophical questions. Looking to the signs. Wisdom that transcends book knowledge. Phrenology. Great brains. The head, scull or cranium. High foreheads.

The Caution: Analyzing things too much. Heavy reliance on intellect. Taking things far too seriously. Weighed down intellectually. Having a “know it all” attitude. Analyzing things.

IN THE LEFT SECTION OF AN ARCHAIC TEMPLE, A LAMP BURNS IN A CONTAINER SHAPED LIKE A HUMAN BODY

This Symbol implies seeing the body as being ones “Temple”; something to be honored and given respect, exercise and good nutrition. It also pictures linking the spirit and the body. Logic is not always involved in this equation – this mostly speaks of emotions, spirit and physicality. Sometimes we need to remember to be ‘in our bodies’ and this shows the rewards that can come from regarding our body as our temple. There’s a need to sleep and exercise when we need to, to eat when we need to; to be alive and happy. However, if taken too seriously, one can forget to nourish their mind, preferring to concentrate on physical attributes and forgetting about other possibilities. Connecting the left and right sides. Yoga. Grounding reality. Working out. Sexuality. Realizing that body and spirit are one. Sport and its physical rewards. Metabolic rates.

The Caution: Being caught up in the illusion of the “physical self”. Worshipping the physical body at the expense of the intellect, psyche or spirit. One’s fire going out.

Neptune symbolizes: Mystical, “out there,” spirituality and con artists. Dreams, mysteries, mystics and religious issues. Intuition, clairvoyance, seeing into the invisible. Addictive, chaotic, charming, deceptive, illusory, co dependent, sensory awareness.


The Karmic Degree for Neptune is Sagittarius 10

A THEATRICAL REPRESENTATION OF A GOLDEN HAIRED GODDESS OF OPPORTUNITY

Rewards, awards, acclaim, a sense of presence, charisma and beauty are all the promise of this degree. There will be offers that look too good to refuse, and they could be full of promise, but they should still be looked at carefully. It can be something of a reward for you, in which case it can lead to bigger and better things. You, or someone close to you, could be seen as someone who could totally succeed – a natural talent. It may seem to be the answer to your dreams – and indeed may well turn out to be a grand adventure with a big reward. However, be aware of idle chatter, with no basis in reality. Distinguishing reality from theatre. Feeling that the ‘world is your stage’. Playing out a story. Acting out impulses. Dramatizations. Opportunities that seem too good to resist.

The Caution: Shallow adoration. Propaganda. Constantly chasing ‘things’ that come to nothing. Judging people by their looks. False appearances. False opportunities.

A FLAG THAT TURNS INTO AN EAGLE; THE EAGLE INTO A CHANTICLEER SALUTING THE DAWN

This Symbol shows being able to proclaim one’s feelings, beliefs, love of country or political opinions, without feeling they are likely to be criticized, shot down or dismissed. Our highest ideals can be expressed proudly, like “A Flag” and as an expression of spiritual purity – “The Eagle” at “Dawn”. You may find that you are regularly moved to burst forth with your ideas, giving voice to what you think and feel. However, some may not like the message or what you have to say, how you say it or where you say it. However, issues that are really worthwhile and ‘centered’ will be seen by many and heard in the clear light of day. Declared idealism. Trumpeting ideals. National pride. Peak experiences. Issues of patriotism. Flags. Political displays. Nobility and pride. National anthems. Pomp and ceremony.

The Caution: Assuming right because of might or power. Propaganda. Lording it over others. Seeing others as being lesser. Crowing. World domination. Loud voices. Bullying.

A PERSON FEEDING CHICKENS AND PROTECTING THEM FROM THE HAWKS

This Symbol shows someone who nourishes and protects and feels a sense of being in charge and being responsible for those who can’t look after themselves. There is probably the need to look after those in your care, whether persons, things or ideas. There could be dangers that no-one else seems to be taking seriously, however your efforts to protect and nourish will be rewarded in the future. Feeding, nourishing and protecting those around you will pay off sometimes in unexpected ways. There’s a need to be careful not to favor some far more than others or to take too much on, or feel responsible for everything and everyone as this can exhaust and limit what you’re trying to accomplish. Nurturance, protection and guardianship. Shielding the innocents. Stopping the ‘bad guys’. Being firm with outsiders. Providing shelter. Being on the lookout for changes.

The Caution: Overprotection. Not coping with problems. Not allowing others to grow up. Being picked on. Seeing the world as a big scary place. Attacking others. Favoritism.

Pluto symbolizes: Unconscious motivation, depth psychology, precinct of deep history.


The Karmic Degree for Pluto is Libra 6

A PERSON WATCHES THEIR IDEALS TAKING A CONCRETE FORM BEFORE THEIR INNER VISION

This Symbol is one of the few Sabian Symbols that speak directly of the idea of the ‘law of attraction’; as a person imagines, so does their outer reality take shape and bring to them what they were imagining. In your life you’ll find vivid examples of thoughts manifesting as things – other times they may happen without you really realizing it. Ideals are not only bought into the light of reality but they are put to the test. This shows the ability to be able to visualize your thoughts and feelings and it possible to project your creative ideas out into the real world. What you think will happen can happen. Confrontations with objectives. Meditations and affirmations. The need to be careful of what’s wanted. Writing and being published. Designs and plans. The Secret. Builders.

The Caution: Being dissatisfied with what was thought to be the ideal. Not being careful of what you ask for. Neurosis. Focusing on the negative thereby bringing the negative.


The Quest Degree for Pluto is Libra 8

A BLAZING FIREPLACE IN A DESERTED HOME

This Symbol implies the ability, or the necessity, to provide warmth and reassurance in times of emptiness, loss or desertion. You may need to remember that even in times of real loneliness, when you feel separated from your ‘center’, there is a constant, unseen, sustaining energy always ready to welcome you home: whether it be the fire of your own spiritual center, the warmth and familiarity of family and kin, or a knowing that one is sustained by humanity at large. You may need this reassurance yourself or you may be the one to help others in their hour of need. Security and comfort left behind. Wood for burning and heating. Gas and electricity. Holiday homes. Homes rarely visited or inhabited. Homes filled with love, if not people or possessions. The warmth of the heart or the hearth. Fertility issues. Sweat lodges.

The Caution: Isolation, separation, abandonment or bitterness. Sabotage by or of loved ones. Being forced out, possibly for social reasons. Divorce. Latch-key children.



Chiron is on Aries 27

THROUGH IMAGINATION, A LOST OPPORTUNITY IS REGAINED

This Symbol shows the talent or the ability to be able to use inner creative energy to revitalize ideas or opportunities that seemed to be lost. Whatever it is that you need to do, believe that it is possible and create an image in your mind and you will most likely succeed at gaining it or recovering it. Always take heart; there is energy here to recapture things that seemed to be lost. Visualizing what you want, allowing time and watching for it to manifest can bring astounding results. Sometimes, however, the “lost opportunities regained” are in a different form than we had first imagined. Creative imagination and visualization. Hope renewed. Second chances. Last minute reprieves. Being forgiven or pardoned. Imagineering. Making up for losses.

The Caution: Relying on self pity which denies using the imagination to recover situations. Not noticing the solutions to problems. Going over and over lost opportunities.

Chiron symbolizes: Our wounds and it is known as The Wounded Healer, it also shows The Stories That We Tell Ourselves, it is where we have to focus on healing, it can show things that are out of shape or misplaced or in need of repair.


The Karmic Degree for Chiron is Aries 26

A PERSON POSSESSED OF MORE GIFTS THAN THEY CAN HOLD

This Symbol often shows someone who has more talent, more possessions, more gifts than most other people. Perhaps too much is demanded or expected of you or you expect life to give you more and more and more. Recognize that you are surrounded by abundance, but perhaps you are unable to experience it all at once. If you don’t feel you have the ability to cope with all that life throws at you then look in your ‘storehouse’ and you could be surprised at talents you have that have never even been used. You may have to give up some things in order to make room for others. Potentiality. Obsessions about ‘having things’ or achieving goals. Counting ones blessings. A jack of all trades. Having to drop things because you can’t contain them.

The Caution: Not focusing on one issue at a time, or ideas of real worth, and not really achieving anything. Inability to gain or contain everything. Unrestrained ambitions.


The Quest Degree for Chiron is Aries 28

A LARGE AUDIENCE

This Symbol shows a sense of being an observer or a spectator, sometimes more than being a participant. You may have an inner critic that analyses things. In fact you might feel as though you, or someone else, have failed and left something wanting. But how much is this because too much was expected in the first place? The ‘Audience’ sometimes only remembers the last performance, so get up and try again. Be aware that you may be your own ‘audience’. Do you feel that things have or haven’t lived up to expectations? Are you missing out through negative projections? Perhaps your need to feel satisfied, to perform or be fulfilled should be more realistic. Adjustment of expectations. Living through the responses of others. Battling to get a spot. Responses to creative activities. Relying on feedback. Being a spectator. The need to inspire.

The Caution: Feeling sorry because of defeat or frustration. A lot of people feeling emotionally ‘wiped-out’. Shattering of illusions. Refusal of entry. Not getting a seat.

RETIRED ARMY VETERANS GATHER TO REAWAKEN OLD MEMORIES

The Symbol shows reunions and gathering together with people who have shared histories, struggles or issues. A reunion can ignite feelings of camaraderie, companionship and triumph, sometimes along with great passions. As these are “Retired Army Veterans”, it’s through the passing of time and with the hindsight of age that many things can be faced, healed and laid to rest. In going over the memories of ‘old battles’ you may find the clues for current ones. However, this degree can show going over and over old hurts, injuries, diseases, etc. The trick also is not to see others as the ‘enemy’, but rather see in everyone the possibility of friendship. Reunions. Past life memories. Fellowship. Masculine domains. Understanding the individual within an idealistic struggle. Finding comrades. Moratoriums. Tears of the past.

The Caution: Not letting go of the past. Exaggerating past successes to justify current strategies. Going over the same old ground. Jobs for the boys. Prisoners of war. Pain.

North Node symbolizes: This is known as quite a ‘karmic point’ (although all planets and points in a chart can be’karmic’). One’s destiny in this life. The things you are meant to integrate, move towards, become. Destined relationships and relationship issues can show up here.

CHILDREN IN HALLOWEEN COSTUMES INDULGING IN VARIOUS PRANKS

This Symbol implies that society needs to have an outlet for disruptive energies, and to have periodic displays of fun, even indulging in somewhat disruptive pranks. You may feel that the trickster in you needs to be let out every now and then, or you may be the focus of tricks by others. Whichever, it should be acknowledged that there needs to be an occasional outlet for immature or fun loving energies, as long as there’s no harm done. This Symbol can refer to somebody who doesn’t take anything too seriously. The time of Halloween is the time when the veil between the living and the dead becomes very thin. The mad-man inside all of us. Astrodrama. Unintegrated energies playing tricks. Practical jokes. Creative surprises. Trick of treat? Dressing up. Ghouls and ghosts. Halloween.

THE OCEAN COVERED WITH WHITECAPS

This Symbol implies getting whipped up about things, often out of proportion to what’s really going on OR staying calm and centered when events or people are getting out of control and making a big deal out of situations. You may find that surface emotions get whipped up and this can led to concerns that are disproportionate to the depth of the situation. Emotions, intelligence and situations probably have a far deeper sense of strength and permanence than it may seem. Get below the surface where things are calmer and more stable. However, don’t withdraw completely as you could find it hard to surface and show your true feelings. Mobilization of energy and emotions. Safety in deeper, secure layers of responses. Energy that needs an outlet. Churning thoughts. Flighty and changeable. Drama queens.

A GLASS-BOTTOMED BOAT REVEALS UNDER-SEA WONDERS AND PANORAMAS

This Symbol speaks of being able to see into things that other people don’t see. You have the ability, the desire and the lens to be able to pierce beneath outer levels of things in order to get a grasp of what’s going on beneath the surface. It can also show that you look at the issues at hand from an objective, uninvolved perspective. A distant, possibly uninvolved position is probably much safer for you and the situation you are observing. It may be that situations are often out of your natural environment, so this is much safer – for you and those things that you are observing or watching. Seeing things that are not usually observable. Clairvoyance. Connecting with the collective unconscious. Spiritual gifts enlarging perspective. Vehicles of discovery. Lenses.

The Caution: Putting up a barrier of social safety to avoid involvement in deeper emotions and their complications. Separation and estrangement because of distance.

South Node symbolizes: Past karmic patterns to be overcome, can be habits that are good, but can describe things, relationships, issues that you need to let go of, or, hold you back from manifesting your true destiny. Relationships that feel karmic and difficult, memories from the past.

A PEACOCK PARADING ITS SPLENDOR ON THE TERRACE OF AN OLD CASTLE

This Symbol shows the beauty and splendor of private estates, wealth and riches. Behavior and presentation of form is of vital importance. Situations are likely to be well established, but could also be slowly breaking apart. There is a need to maintain your grace and pride while also maintaining the center of attention.

A NERVOUS GENTLEMAN, DRESSED IN AN ELABORATE SANTA CLAUSE COSTUME, IS FILLING CHRISTMAS STOCKINGS FURTIVELY

This Symbol often describes people who are into giving gifts and dishing out the good things in life to others. The question is: are you the giver or the receiver? Regardless, there are gifts given or received. Those who are giving will probably try to make it a surprise. Be gracious and accept those things you both give and receive, but realize that some could be suspecting what’s really going on as it may not always be clear what the intentions are behind the act. In fact, it can show someone sneaking around, somewhat like ‘Santa Claus’, in an effort to achieve something while no one is looking. Wishes fulfilled. Longing for superficial gratification. Gifts dispensed. Receiving gifts from unknown sources. Sudden surprises. Secret affairs. Quick getaways. Charity.

The Caution: Hiding. Futile pretense. Concealing one’s true intentions. Trying to get away with something. Shoplifting. Plundering other people’s possessions. Being light fingered.

A GREEK MUSE WEIGHING NEW BORN TWINS IN GOLDEN SCALES

This Symbol shows the ability, or the necessity, of being able to weigh up seemingly similar things and being able to make distinctions between them. In a creative or intuitive way you may be pressed into making judgments and decisions, but the elements of your judgment are, in many ways, exactly the same. The choices can be confusing because they essentially lead to the same result. This situation is probably brand new; maybe the answer lies in taking an intuitive ‘punt’, or waiting for the solutions to become more clear-cut. Comparisons and similarities. Weighing things up. The law and lawyers. Seeking subtle differences. Measured responses. Using intuition. Inspiration. Fairness. Equality.

The Caution: Judgmental opinions about things that are essentially equal. Being nit-picky. Constantly weighing things up instead of just accepting them. Tipping the scales.

AN INDIAN GIRL INTRODUCES HER COLLEGE BOYFRIEND TO HER ASSEMBLED TRIBE

This Symbol implies that you may find yourself bridging the gap between situations or people that are inherently foreign to each other or previously unknown and unexplored. By bridging the worlds between people, you invite richness into your life and the lives of others that may not have been possible if you’d stuck to your culture, your ethnicity, your own side of the tracks. It is your deeply felt understanding of both situations and the respect with which you are held in both situations that makes their mutual acceptance possible. This is about opening your heart to find the rewards that are waiting. Challenging or going against the status-quo. Bringing in new intellectual elements Or a natural, earth-based attitude to stuffy environments. Clans, tribes. New lovers. Foreigners.

The Caution: Upsetting people with alternative behavior. Choosing people who won’t fit in. Ignoring tradition. Judging people by social standards. Prejudice. Barriers. Rebellion.

A DAUGHTER OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION

This Symbol shows the ability or the need to stand up for an ideal or a situation that demands your involvement. This could be about political or social revolution, or fighting to change the status quo. Relying on old traditions that were, in their day, radical and transforming, may no longer work. The difficulty is that these traditions are more predictable, conservative values that may no longer seem relevant to today’s needs and aspirations. Despite your inner feelings of modern freedom, you may come up against those that are more conservative and unmoving. Being bound by social conditioning. Leading the charge to break down the barriers of tradition. Sacrificing oneself for the larger picture. Wanting change. Fighting the norm.

The Caution: Supporting battles that have already been won. False feelings of superiority. Narrow-minded conservatism. Glorifying the past. Having to be ‘in the club’ to be accepted.

While others just see something simple like a tea cup, you can have the ability to weave a story for yourself and others about how life will, or can, be. One has to put aside skepticism and embrace trust and intuitive knowing in order to be able to listen to the messages that are around. Be open to seeing meaning through the catalyst of the simplest of everyday events. You will receive messages, if you are open to ‘seeing’ the signs. You may have to deal with skeptical people.

There is a lot of chattering and flitting from one thing to another going on and while there is no harm being done, perhaps, sometimes, there’s nothing much really being achieved.

A RETIRED SEA CAPTAIN WATCHES SHIPS ENTERING AND LEAVING THE HARBOR

This Symbol speaks of the necessity in life of finding time for quiet recollection. You may feel that the stormy, unpredictable, emotional life is something you can, or need to, leave behind; to opt out. But like the sea captain, there will always be the frustration in the desire to return and get back amongst it. An objective and calm understanding of life’s experiences is available, but know when to rest and when to be active and work as merely looking out at the world from a confined perspective and feeling like you have no choice but to sit and watch is unlikely to bring the world to you. Memories and peaceful contemplation. Writing memoirs. Being a spectator rather than a participant. Disconnection from the past. Nostalgia. Safe ports or harbors. Retiring.

A GANG OF ROBBERS IN HIDING

It often happens that the feelings of loss or being taken advantage of are mostly in your own mind, making it difficult to trust or even to know how to trust. Make sure that there is no undermining of faith by indulging in suspicions that are ungrounded in reality. You could spend time searching for perpetrators, but a better solution is probably to get on with your life. However, do take precautions so you’re not easily taken advantage of. Things will most probably come to light when they are meant to. Mental attitudes that sabotage, restrict or control. Counseling others to help improve their lives. Alert to intrusion or paranoid? The need for light. Spying. Ambushes. Psychology.

The Caution: Unfair advantage at other’s expense. Finding it hard to trust anything. Difficult hidden energies that erupt into consciousness. Unbalanced mental states. Fear.
