“Love exists before the birth.”

Earth Element

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

Virgo 3° Two angels bring protection

This is a symbol of the absolute certainty which any individual may develop in the terms of his conscious faith, and of the power in human character which becomes the hallmark of his spiritual orientation. There are the traditional legions of heavenly forces which ever move to sustain the soul in its outreaching to eternal values, facilitating the simple and consistent convergence of all good things toward their own kind. High-mindedness here pays very pleasant dividends.

The Keyword is SECURITY.

When positive, the degree is a sure conviction which enables man to proceed to an effective fulfillment of his dreams, and when negative, vain pretense and self-importance.

The formula is: sustaining-practical-efficient-specializing-physical-receptive.

Eurythmics ~ Miracle of Love

Love Child of Two Angels

We cannot be born without parentage–cosmic, as well as mortal. And whether or not we can appreciate the human ones, know that they are indeed angels though you may not yet have the capacity to understand or appreciate it. So, if that proves difficult, then begin at the outermost realm, the cosmic, immortal realm—where Yin and Yang set existence into motion–the light from within the void. An act of passion of universal proportions!

Now bring it to a point of understanding, a point of conception and inception. That would be you. That would be me. That would be each and every one of us who has ever lived, is now living, or is yet to come to this planet to live.

You can’t remove this stardust from you; your fire burns within. You are the Miracle of Love. The love that existed before birth…

The Archetypal Angels ~ Rudolph Valentine and Natasha, his leading lady

“It is in Rudolph’s blood to wear black velvet pantaloons and stamp his black patent leather boots and click castanets. His manner was quite Argentine; his hair quite brilliantine.

“Natasha Rambova was also clad in black velvet, offset with a red Carmen-like shawl. She was very brave to put on a ten-dollar pair of black silk stockings so close to her partner’s three-inch silver spurs,” Times reporter Dora Dean

Are you brave? In cosmic proportions? Are you being the miracle of love that you came here to be? Think about these things. You are protected…

Psalms 91:11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

Phase 152

Earth Element

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

Virgo 2° A large white cross upraised

This is a symbol of the conscious stewardship through which man sustains his more enduring values, here emphasized by an uncompromising testimony to his deeper allegiances. His moral courage is a dynamic for all transcendental achievement, and his psychological fearlessness is a corrective for the maladjustments of both individual and society. A sense of spiritual belonging is exalted as the greatest of human satisfactions.


When positive, the degree is an utterly selfless enlistment in some dramatic service for the ultimate welfare of humankind, and when negative, witless dogmatism and misdirected efforts for causes of great pretension but little real worth.

The formula is: sustaining-practical-efficient-specializing-physical-sensitive.

Fight Song ~ Rachel Platten

Now, get up off your knees and march onward. Deal with what’s right in front of you! You’re just gonna have to learn how to trust in you again. Have some faith! It’s time for you to take control of your life. Take your power back. ⁣

This is about your happiness!⁣

Pick up your cross. What cross? That one—the big white one right there in front of your eyes. No, not that one! That one’s mine. Yes, the other one. That one’s yours. Has it a name? It has. What is it? I don’t know. It’s your cross. You name it. I’ve got my own to carry. ⁣

Seriously, you still don’t get it? Come on then, have a sit. Think about it. What is it you want? What makes you happy? Where is your power? Think, man, think! Think, woman, think!⁣

Today may you rise up and reach the synthesis of who you are within, working with self not against self! It’s the only way. It’s what your journey is all about. ⁣

Now take back your power! Stand up straight, shoulders back, chin up! Now march! Carry on! Carry on! Carry on!⁣

“Extraordinary means!”⁣

Phase 151

Earth Element

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

Virgo 1° ~ A man’s head

This is a symbol of full maturity in human estate, with an emphasis on the personal integrity which represents in general what all men are asked to be in particular. The ideals of an inner life are given their outer manifestation through some self-accepted responsibility on which others can count. Ambition has its high dignity here in the distinction with which it endows those who remain most faithful to its exactions and thereupon become most conscious of its rewards.

The Keyword is CHARACTER.

When positive, the degree is an effective self-assurance and an ever-clear vision of each emerging opportunity in life, and when negative, inordinate vanity and a consistent overestimation of individual capacities.⁣

The formula is: sustaining-practical-efficient-specializing-physical-experimental.

Of ogres and ogresses… Shrek the Third 🦌 👂 ⁣

Double Entendre ~ a word or phrase open to two interpretations, one of which is usually risqué.⁣

Character, that quality of self in which it is far better to have one than to be one… But, (and what comes after ‘but’ is always the most important part!) if you are truly a class-act, you can have one and be one, too!⁣

Let’s be characters with character! Do try to see what’s missing and bring that to light from within! You’ll be doing yourself, and the world at large, an invaluable service.⁣

The Seven Cardinal Virtues⁣

All virtues have as their final scope to dispose man to acts conducive to his true happiness. ⁣

The happiness, however, of which man is capable is twofold, namely, natural, which is attainable by man’s natural powers, and supernatural, which exceeds the capacity of unaided human nature. ⁣

Since, therefore, merely natural principles of human action are inadequate to a supernatural end, it is necessary that man be endowed with supernatural powers to enable him to attain his final destiny. ⁣

Now these supernatural principles are nothing else than the theological virtues.” James Stalker⁣

Find your character, find your happiness!⁣

Fire Element

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

Leo 30° An unsealed letter

This is a symbol of the spiritual integrity of all things in and of themselves, dramatized here by the remarkable extent to which reliance may be placed on the discretion of others in even the most trivial details of day-by-day living. Suspicion is a poison to the mind whenever it becomes a set of temperament rather than a normal competency in applying the lessons of experience, and in consequence man must trust his fellows in general and in spite of his frequent disillusionments in order to discover how far he may do so in every given case.

The Keyword is CONFIDENCE.

When positive, the degree is exceptional skill in winning and holding the respect of everybody, and when negative, a genius for indiscreetness.

Oliver Wood: “Get the Snitch or die trying.”

Oliver Wood: “Ah, you like it now. Just wait. It’s wicked fast and damn near impossible to see.”

An unsealed letter in the palm of our hand? Buddha – looking at his own right hand…

“In some portrayals of the Buddha, he is looking at his right hand. But is he only looking at it? Actually, when the Buddha is concentrating on his hand, he is making contact with the great hand of the Creator, that is, with the whole universe, with suns, stars and nebulae. And in the Creator’s hand, the Milky Way represents the line of Saturn.

“If the Buddha is concentrating on his hand, it is because the hand is not simply a physical organ we use like a tool or instrument. It is imbued with a mysterious power, by means of which it communicates with nature’s subtle bodies. Like the Buddha, anyone who concentrates on their hand can connect with the universe. They will feel they are in the hand of the Creator, nourished by the energies they receive from its centre.” Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov

Akashic Records – The Book of Remembrance

The Akashic records are like the DNA of the universe. They are the soul’s journey over time, so every thought, word, and deed is registered in the Akashic records. Each soul has its own Akashic record, and there are collective records of all souls or all journeys.

Phase 149

Fire Element

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

Leo 29° A mermaid

This is a symbol of humanity’s insatiable appetite for experience on the side of psychological self-assurance, and of the nascent eagerness of the soul for a private and personal participation in every possible facet of self-fulfillment. There is an ineradicable purity of man’s make-up at core, and in consequence an ultimate repudiation of all the compromises which seem to be demanded in everyday relationships. The individual forever seeks and responds to the creative needs of life itself.

The Keyword is IMPORTUNITY.

When positive, the degree is a completeness of quickening to inner instincts of the being and a real willingness to trust them, and when negative, a lack of discrimination and an awkward insensitivity.

The Deep ~ “Accept me for who I am and not what you see. Take time to understand the pieces of me. What you see is not what you’re going to get. The perception you hold of me, I will soon make you forget. Beneath the surface, you will find so much more. I have locked myself away within my soul’s core. I’m very selective of who I show all of my colors to. The only ones who have access to my realness are those…who walk in Truth.” Lena Hovanesian

Phase 148

Fire Element

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

Leo 28° Many little birds on the limb of a large tree

This is a symbol of the transcendence of the lesser things in life by a continual expansion of higher considerations, or of the individual’s ability in a crisis to center his attention on the enduring orientations through which he gains his own assurance. Here is a happy lightness of the human spirit as it rejoices in its infinitely varying relations with the beautiful and the good, or as its experience is poised at a point of highest satisfaction.

The Keyword is RAMIFICATION.

When positive, the degree is man’s effective mobilization of all the unrealized possibilities of his destiny, and when negative, an enjoyment of confusion or the momentary self-importance it brings.

David Lanz ~ Cristofori’s Dream 

The planet of sensation, Earth—where birds sing, flowers bloom, clouds drift, waters flow, and mountains spire. With eyes, ears and nose; fingers, hands, legs and toes, all of our senses ingest, digest and consume all that is about us.

To each experience we attach a measure of significance through these sensate abilities. In the end we will have a story to tell—our astounding experiences and unique perspectives of what we have realized, those epiphanies of which we have become intimately aware.

Thus, born into such an amazing world and filled with such incredible personal senses, how might we plan, organize and construct for a future intake of our highest mental, emotional and physical endowment? We are the sum total of our experiences. Make yours a conceptual melody, won’t you, please?

This planet we call home, Earth, is filled to overflowing with stories. Some are mean and angry, full of hatred and misconceptions and loathing. But there are other voices! Listen to them! They speak of unfathomable beauty and joy! Indeed by such inspired voices has this cherished tradition of story-telling long been kept alive among us—at the cradle, on the knee, around the campfire, from the pulpit and podiums of great men and women come…

Fire Element

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

Leo 26° A rainbow

This is a symbol of the over-all realization which comes to man for his guidance whenever he strives to reach his goals of a more enduring sort. Here is assurance of divine participation in the most unpromising of human relationships. The individual learns that there is a consistent ordering throughout the world in which he finds himself, and that nature will co-operate effectively with every vision he chooses to keep alive on his own account.

The Keyword is SIGNIFICANCE.

When positive, the degree is a sense of very real spiritual power and presence in all personal effort and desire, and when negative, an uncritical acceptance of every passing hope or dream as something on which to depend.

A Bird’s Eye View ~ Messengers of Truth

In the early 1970s, a researcher testing the ability of pigeons to discriminate colors, discovered by accident that the birds can see ultraviolet (UV) light. The finding was deemed curious but not too important. “It was natural for scientists to assume that bird vision is like human vision,” says Geoffrey Hill, an Auburn University ornithologist and the author of Bird Coloration. “After all, birds and humans are both active by day, we use bright colors as cues. … No one really imagined birds might see the world differently.”

Never assume! You know where that leads, don’t you?

Fire Element

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

Leo 25° A large camel crossing the desert

This is a symbol of man’s capacity to overcome the handicaps imposed on him by the normal limitations of the world in which he elects to function, and of his underlying and basically inexhaustible endurance. Here is a psychological integration of human character, revealing an effective self-mobilization which the least of men may accomplish. His achievements in the face of the difficulties to be overcome are the real foundation of his self-refinement and ultimate self-discovery.

The Keyword is ADEQUACY.

When positive, the degree is uncompromising persistence and uncomplaining self-expenditure in any course to be followed, and when negative, ruthlessness in an unintelligent self-interest.

Paraousia – Paraousia

Wholly, holy, presence…

The camel carries water within itself, thus “living” water. And if we were to envision ourselves like unto the camel, then instead of seeing life as a barren wilderness threatening our survival, we might instead, also like the camel, realize we have all that we need to fully engage and even prosper in the “wilderness”. We might shake any gloomy outward view and instead base our perspective on the light from within. We each came here, you see, equipped not just to start the journey, but to finish it, and we may accomplish that in any way, with whatever attitude, level of understanding and way of being that we choose.

“We’re born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we’re not alone.” Orson Welles

And that is the turning point from wholeness to holiness! In such a state—aware of one’s own living water within, this greater form of holiness will emerge—interdependence. When two or more come together in wholeness—each aware of its own self-sustenance—then the caravan, the group of the holy, begins moving and flowing, too.

Phase 144

Fire Element

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

This is a symbol of the complete self-obsession which human individuality may exhibit, emphasized here on the side of an insensitiveness to every exaction or reward of the world. Implicit in the reversed symbolism are the values of an inner refining of self and a need to use and exalt rather than hoard the physical and psychological possessions of the being. Paradoxically enough the bringing of reality to center is a development and sharing of its potentialities.

Leo 24° An untidy, unkempt man


When positive, the degree is an ease of outer accomplishment thanks to the inner intensification and increasing sensibility, and when negative, perverse satisfaction in a neglect of self.

The Soft Goodbye ~ Celtic Women

When all is said and done, what will you have made of yourself, your character, your destiny?

Fire Element

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

Leo 23° A bareback rider

This is a symbol of man’s absolute mastery of his immediate world of experience, and of his ability to capitalize on any special function of life with which he is concerned. There are illimitable opportunities for the human spirit to dramatize its personal achievement or individual aspiration, and to do this is the way of most effective self-refinement if only it is pursued assiduously and valiantly enough.

The Keyword is AUDACITY.

When positive, the degree is uncompromising courage in the everyday business of living and a carefree assurance in meeting the problems of a modern society, and when negative, idle self-display and intemperate desire for applause.
