The Sun On Pisces 6: Army Officers On Dress Parade
The Sabian Symbol for the Sun today is Pisces 6: A PARADE OF ARMY OFFICERS IN FULL DRESS
This degree can have us showing up fully kitted out to do what needs to be done. We roll up our sleeves and get going… sometimes it’s from volunteer work that we step up, other times we are being paid, amply or otherwise (often otherwise). Sometimes, with this degree, we might wonder where our sense of individuality, our sense of unique self has gone. Sometimes we feel driven to help others. Whatever we’re doing, if we do it from a sense of willingness and duty without strings attached, we can achieve a lot.
Sometimes, people put on their ‘uniform’ and tell others what to do.. shout orders, make themselves out to be ‘the officers’ while others are the lackeys… sometimes, a show of strength comes from a place of weakness (witness the posturing that goes on on a military level – ugh… war war war).
This Symbol shows the ability, or the need, to spring to attention and rally to show others their duty, honor and their protection of the community and the higher ideals. You may find that recognition needs to be given for service and dedication to the community. Dedication, discipline and duty bring their own rewards and it is often people with this Symbol that turn up first with whatever is needed in order to make people feel better, protected or recognized. Putting on your best face, and your uniform – and there are many ‘uniforms’ that can be worn – and joining with others will ensure success. There may be issues of showing one’s ‘authority’ in public, staking one’s claim as part of the broader community that works to protect and bring everyone together.
National pride displayed. Patriotism. Memories of war. Being committed to service. Being dressed up. Putting on a uniform. Medals. Stripes. Drills. Routines. Parades.
The Caution: ‘Stiff’ and unfeeling. Having special privileges that others don’t. Having to do what one must do. Drills and boring routines. ‘Drill sergeants’. Sloppy dressing.
