The Sun On Scorpio 12: The Embassy Ball

 In Lunar Stories by Lynda Hill


The Embassy Ball

The Embassy Ball degree is a fascinating one – this can bring up the desire, or the possibility or the decision, to go out, to mix and mingle, to be with the ‘dignitaries’, to rub shoulders with the fabulous, the rich, the powerful, the famous, etc, OR, to be like Cinderella – cleaning out the fireplace, scrubbing the floors, cleaning up after others and wondering why love and fortune have escaped us.

This Symbol implies the ability to mix with people from all over the world, to talk in different kinds of languages or travel in the circles of the elite. There’s probably an issue about being invited to the ‘right’ functions or that you’re sure of being on the list of those who gather to make decisions or call the shots. Enjoying social situations can be rewarding on many levels, however, the conditions may sometimes be caged in rather strict protocol and rules of behavior that you and others have to adhere to. Look at yourself and observe whether you are being your natural self or putting on a show for others. This can imply social climbing and political strategies.

Political game-playing. Manners and protocol. Who knows who and what it’s worth. Being able to speak everyone’s language. Issues of being invited. Etiquette. Dressing up.

The Caution: Role-playing. Not knowing how to behave in “polite society”. Cinderella feelings of not being worthy. Diplomatic standoffs. Gate crashing. Out of one’s depth.

    Hi Lynda,
    The Sabian Symbols for this first week of November have been so telling. Thank you so much for taking the time/energy to share and interpret them for us. They have really helped guide me and validate all I’m thinking/feeling/doing/planning.

    Blessings and Love to You,

    p.s. I miss your videos 🙁
