Taurus 11 ~ “Never give up the good fight.”

Winged Victory 7

“Never give up the good fight.”

The Span of Experience

Phase 41

Earth Element

Dr. Marc Edmund Jones provides the official meaning of this Sabian symbol in his
work, Sabian Symbols in Astrology:

Taurus 11° A woman sprinkling flowers

This is a symbol of the soul’s determination to give constant and tangible manifestation of its creative powers, and of its eagerness to pour itself into every potentiality of living. There is here an easy and rewarding partnership between man and nature, so that a natural profusion tends to match his inner generosity of spirit. He feels responsible for the welfare of his world, and its rewards for his interest are very great.

The keyword is CARE

When positive, the degree is the high stewardship by which man builds everything around him into an enduring organism for his own fulfillment, and when negative, superficial satisfactions and a wasteful truckling to petty concerns.

The formula is: sustaining-ideal-efficient-specializing-spiritual-experimental.

Katy Perry ~ By the Grace of God https://youtu.be/jokARaxZIi4

Mary, Mary, quite contrary,
How does your garden grow?
With silver bells, and cockle shells,
And pretty maids all in a row.

If you brought it to life—planted a seed, nurtured it, tended it—then don’t stop now! Keep sprinkling that which you’ve helped to manifest. Never give up the good fight! Storms will come—rain, thunder, lightning, wind! You are the one that must continue to nurture your manifestation through all it must endure before it returns from whence it came—back to the earth. Every energy must fulfill itself! So then keep tending your garden!

Besides, “More grows in the garden, than the gardener sows.” Spanish Proverb

  1. Thank you – what a revelation this interpretation is. This degree is my Venus/Saturn midpoint – they are exactly opposite each other, and my Neptune is on 11 Scorpio. So this degree creates a perfect fixed Grand Cross. Stewardship, and care, and nurture what’s growing … wow. And I love gardening. The Katy Perry song was new to me too, and blew me away. And the most amazing thing – I discover all this, as Uranus and Venus are transiting on this very degree.

    1. Thank you. In Aries I started making these reflections available via podcasts on Spotify. Just recorded Taurus 1-10 yesterday. Interestingly, your degree will be next. 🙂
