The Sun On Taurus 17: A Symbolical Battle
The Sabian Symbol for the Sun is Taurus 17: A SYMBOLICAL BATTLE BETWEEN `SWORDS’ THE DISCIPLES OF MIGHT, AND `TORCHES’, THE DISCIPLES OF ENLIGHTENMENT
This Symbol shows a battle between the forces of good and the forces of evil. Although we all have our own ideas of right and wrong, this Symbol shows a desire to go head-to-head in an attempt to bring light and love to situations that seem dark and foreboding. Often, there is a struggle between one’s practical needs and the underlying reasons for having those needs. You may find yourself sometimes caught up in what you are trying to achieve and have lost sight of why. There’s often corruption around, but the endeavor to bring ‘enlightenment’ to people often meets with severe resistance. Witness the stranglehold the media has on information.
‘Might’ versus ‘light’. Arguments over ideals. The Spear of Destiny. Arguments. The Inquisition. The Crusades. The pen being mightier than the sword. The media.
The Caution: Controlling those around you with rational force rather than inner enlightenment. The interests of big business vs. those of the individual. Propaganda.
