The Sun On Pisces 13: A Sword In A Museum
The Sabian Symbol for the Sun is Pisces 13: A SWORD, USED IN MANY BATTLES, IS NOW IN A MUSEUM
What ‘battles’ are you meant to lay to rest now? Are you tired of fighting? Are you finding yourself spending more time than you need to just endeavouring to prove yourself and your position – or – to defend your position? Is there a need to lay down your weapons and promote peace between people? Are some of your battles really from the past?
It’s curious to note how the museum in Mosul in Iraq is probably now laid to waste… totally ruined. What an enormous tragedy – I wonder who was profiting from the looting?
This Symbol shows the ability, or the need, to be able to know when to stop battling in life, when to lay down one’s “Sword” and take up a higher position that reflects a more intelligent or spiritual way of being in the world. Sometimes, when reminded of the battles of the past, we are influenced towards actions that ensure peace. We are uplifted by the symbolic memory of past deeds of valor, although the stings of defeat may also be part of the story. You may find yourself faced with the choice of fighting or reasoning which is confused by your lack of training or experience in the ways of “Battle”. Don’t go down with the ship. It helps to lay down one’s ‘sword’ – not in order to surrender, but to stop the ‘warring’.
