“Still unsure? Flip it! Decide!”
The Span of Assurance
Dr. Marc Edmund Jones provides the official meaning of this Sabian symbol in his work, The Sabian Symbols in Astrology:
Leo 5° Rock formations at the edge of a precipice
This is a symbol of the constitution of reality in crisis, offering a challenge to man as it pyramids in ramifying involvements until action or decision becomes an immediate necessity. There is no possible sustainment of individuality without an acceptance of difficulty as significant and an accompanying realization that every shift in orientation is a demand for some enlarged self-discovery. Personality only achieves its stability at the threshold of the risks it is willing to take.
The Keyword is ENDURANCE
When positive, the degree is man’s genius for initial aplomb and ultimate competency in the face of all danger, and when negative, pure bullheadedness.

Heads, I win. Tails, you lose…
“When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you, but because, in that brief moment when the coin is in the air, you suddenly know what you are hoping for.” Quasain
Or, if you are like me, you’ll deal with it the long, introspective way, which in my case included 12 pages of journaling. I don’t care for short-cuts, do you? “Participation must be conscious!” That is, of course, if you want the coin of life experience to flip from practical insight to wisdom and understanding. If not, if you live just one day after the other, without any measured approach to contemplate and glean the worth of your time spent, then any coin will do, and any toss will suffice. It’s all about what you’re willing to invest for your greater self-discovery.
