The Sun On Virgo 25: A Flag At Half Mast
The Sabian Symbol for the Sun is Virgo 25: A FLAG AT HALF MAST IN FRONT OF A PUBLIC BUILDING – this can speak of letting something go from your life – it can be a release of something, an abandonment, a death, moving on, feeling free to finally mourn, etc. It can also show a desire to do something really significant in the world – to have a mission.
This Symbol points to recognition for a life well lived or for a notable contribution to society or someone in the public eye. This is about carrying a task through to completion, or, having the enormous desire to leave something, a legacy perhaps, to society that is worth commemorating or celebrating. It also signals a time for letting something go or knowing when to give up or let go. It shows recognition of what’s been accomplished. A life may have been lost, or a project finished. This can produce a feeling that something has passed from your life. Grieving may be necessary, however so is assimilating what it took to get where you are, and for moving forward again into the future.
Public tribute and recognition. Walking away or leaving. Signs for all to see. Having the power to sway the masses. Obituaries. Public holidays. Taking time to grieve.
The Caution: Feeling an obligation to carry on without taking time to mourn loss. Denying your life in order to fulfill some social function. Hypocritical mourning.
