The Sun And Mercury Signalling A Time Of Observation
The Sabian Symbol for the Sun is Pisces 10: AN AVIATOR IN THE CLOUDS
and, it seems to be a day of looking at things from a higher perspective, or, possibly, from a distant, objective view, in order to get a clearer picture of what’s going on. There’s a rather rarefied atmosphere going on now.
This Symbol shows the ability, or the need, to be able to stay on one’s course while not allowing distractions or difficult or confusing issues to deter you from getting to your destination. There will be times in your life that you need to rise above and transcend the more nitty-gritty realities of earthly existence and its difficulties, just be aware that you may not be seeing the complete picture very clearly sometimes. If you take special notice, you may be able to see through illusions, seeing past the surface appearances to things that others miss. You may be able to rely on your creative or intellectual skills to take you above and beyond those things that others have to deal with. You may just be evading the real truth.
Sailing through difficulties. The need for accurate navigation. Being in charge of the controls. Seeking higher truths. Mastery. Flight. Navigation. Maps. Compasses. Pilots.
The Caution: Escaping responsibilities. Isolating oneself. Drugs and alcohol abuse. Avoiding reality. Unearthed. Unrealistic expectations. Missing the point. Evasive.
This ‘rarefied atmosphere’ is made even stronger by Mercury being on Aquarius 13: A BAROMETER –
This Symbol shows the ability, or the need, to be able to measure what’s going on in the atmosphere around you, whether it be physical, emotional, spiritual or on an etheric level. You could feel rather sensitive to changes or shifts going on around you and you can pick them up far more than most people. Not only shifts in “Barometric” pressure, but shifts in temperature and mood can be picked up, almost like you have antennae. You may need to plan for future action, and you need to know what to expect or at least anticipate. You will find in your own sensitivity the instrument that perceives the possibilities of upcoming events. You may be a “translator” for others, bearing useful messages and being able to read the environment.
Measured responses. Perceiving subtle changes. Insight. Knowing when rain or storms are coming. Anticipating shifts. Opinion polls. Indicators. Reading the atmosphere.
The Caution: Fear of change. Constantly looking to fashions or fads. Watching, waiting to see how other people react, seemingly with no will of one’s own. Having no anchor.
