The Span of Expectation – The 1st Hemisphere of Libra
Air Element – Cardinal
The formula is: manipulating-critical-ingenious-specializing-social-receptive.
Dr. Marc Edmund Jones provides the official meaning of this Sabian symbol in his work, The Sabian Symbols in Astrology:
Libra 8° A blazing fireplace in a deserted home
This is a symbol of naïve reality, or of the basic law of the cosmos whereby all things tend to continue steadily in their accustomed function. Implicit here is the burning desire or capacity for passion which establishes man’s loyalty to each object of his self-projection and instruments his more consistent self-orientation through each phase of personal responsibility to the world in which he finds himself.
The Keyword is GUARDIANSHIP
When positive, the degree is an exceptional gift for enlisting both men and the natural forces of life in the service of self and its dominating vision, and when negative, a witless dismissal of all affairs to their own devices.

And within this darkness, I became the light. …In psychic spaces, in the darkness, look for that which shines the brightest. Follow it…become it…then, lead it.
“Vultures Chose Me” is a video by Green Renaissance that documents a woman’s flight with the vultures. It is simply breathtaking. I hope you enjoy it. http://youtu.be/LqsD3UqzkJQ
“That is freedom. You’re flying up there, and the sun is going down. It’s peaceful. It’s quiet.”
If Vulture has flown across your path you are being asked to be patient with yourself and think things through. Take your time before making decisions and choose paths that support your higher consciousness and your heart. Use all of your resources combined with your past experience to approach the problem from a different angle. Know that you are always free to choose your own path but be flexible while moving forward. Allow yourself to use all of your senses to navigate through this situation for your highest benefit. Call on all your resources to get the job done. Alternatively Vulture recognizes that you are fiercely protective of those you feel responsible for but you are reminded that knowing when to allow others to sink or swim is important too. Recognize the need for higher awareness in all those around you.” Spirit Animals
