The Sun On Libra 19: A Gang Of Robbers In Hiding
The Sabian Symbol for the Sun today is Libra 19: A GANG OF ROBBERS IN HIDING
The Gang Of Robbers In Hiding can show how our mental attitudes can rob us of our peace and tranquility. Indeed, our minds can bring trouble to us when none might exist. We might be thinking things are going to go wrong and then we are proven right. We might be suspicious of people’s motives to the point of not being able to trust anything. This can bring up issues to do with our memories of past hurts and slights, distrust and graft of our governments, fear and loathing of those people/things/events that are somehow ‘foreign’ to us (in any sense of the word).
However, this Symbol can also mean that light being shed on dark places can illuminate and bring relief to worry and fear. As with all Symbols, this Symbol is not necessarily negative – it all depends on how you see it.
I have seen this degree active in the charts of healers and therapists who help people release their fears (their ‘demons’). In fact, people with this degree in their charts can be light-bearers, shedding light on dark spaces.
The following is my shortened interpretation for this degree:
This Symbol implies that you may feel you have been wronged or something has been taken from you. Often, there is no real way of finding who or what is the cause. 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.
The previous Sabian Symbol is Libra 18: TWO PEOPLE WHO HAVE TO GIVE AN ACCOUNTING FOR THEIR ACTS BEFORE THE TRIBUNAL OF SOCIETY – an alternative wording for this degree is TWO MEN PLACED UNDER ARREST. What is often needed here is the removal of any ‘handcuffs’ – mental, physical or spiritual. Are you finding yourself handcuffed to something/someone/a memory that is no longer serving you?
This Symbol implies the periodic need for people to step up to the line and explain themselves, or to justify some actions or ways of being, particularly in relationships. Sometimes our ideas or actions are under criticism, to the point of feeling that someone has offended social acceptability. Be thoughtful about situations, because problems you face may only exist in your own mind, stopping you from having fruitful relationships because of a lack of trust or a failed relationship in your past. You may need to forgive or feel forgiven. Relationships can be held in abeyance until the facts come to light. Things resolve themselves as time goes by.
Unacceptable principles. People kept apart because of circumstances. Relationships like jail sentences. Staying too long. The law. Karma to be worked out. Judge and juries.
The Caution: Refusing to conform to society. Sabotaging relationship values. Feeling stuck, unable to move. Telling tales. Handcuffs and manacles. Severe judgments.
