The Sun on Libra 29: Handing Down Knowledge From Generation To Generation
The Sabian Symbol for the Sun is Libra 29: 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.
The Caution: Belief that one knows it all. Fundamentalism. Doing what’s always been done, regardless of why. Reliance on tradition. Snobbery and elitism. Burning books.
