“Don’t let your dreams slip away.”
The Span of Expansion
Dr. Marc Edmund Jones provides the official meaning of this Sabian symbol in his work, The Sabian Symbols in Astrology:
Cancer 9° A tiny nude miss reaching in the water for a fish
This is a symbol of the eternal and unsullied freshness of soul as it enters every new experience with an unabated enthusiasm and thereby both substantiates its divine estate and brings enduring significance to whatever it may touch. Here is the absolute lack of inhibition which enables man to grasp the reins of control in every realm he decides to make his own, and the unquenched and simple curiosity which virtually makes it impossible for any potentiality of being ever to escape him.
The keyword is INCLINATION
When positive, the degree is ingratiating and irresistible capacity for self-expression, and when negative, continual indiscretion as a bar to any appreciable achievement.
The formula is: sustaining-critical-universal-specializing-social-responsible.

Wish Again, Big Bear by Richard J. Margolis
Big Bear caught a fish. The fish was shiny and very upset.
“There’s been a mistake, there’s been a mistake,” Fish yelled, flipping and flopping in Big Bear’s net.
“I don’t think so,” Big Bear said politely. “You’re just what I want for lunch.”
Fish thought fast. “Nonsense!” he said. “Don’t you know I’m a wish-fish? Instead of eating me you should ask me to grant you three wishes. That’s what wish-fish do–they grant wishes.”
In the end Bear didn’t eat fish, even though the “wish fish” hadn’t really been able to grant the three wishes bear had asked for; instead wish fish and bear had become friends, and friends don’t eat friends, you see.
So, there is a larger, more over-arching reality to which all our desires may find common value and appreciation. You just have to want it–that “greater” reality. Zero-sum game stuff. Reach low, lift high, then take aim at the stars!
Don’t ever let go of your dreams—don’t let them slip by—but always allow that there may be a greater purpose being served while you wait for your dream to come true. Just, no matter how long it takes, remember always:
