The Span of Defensiveness – The 1st Hemisphere of Aquarius
Air Element – Fixed
The formula is: manipulating-ideal-ingenious-specializing-mental-experimental.
Dr. Marc Edmund Jones provides the official meaning of this Sabian symbol in his work, The Sabian Symbols in Astrology:
Aquarius 11° Man tête-à-tête with his inspiration
This is a symbol of satisfaction in the transcendental experiences of selfhood, and of a new realization that each individual lives in a consistent intimacy with spiritual verities of every sort and on every hand. Implicit in the symbolism is the need to act continually in personal self-interest, and to translate every vision into practical consummation. As man accepts the over-shadowing of a universal life and order, he must demonstrate his own special capacities and rededicate his own individual achievements.
The keyword is ECSTASY.
When positive, the degree is an enthusiastic idealism and a tireless desire to serve others, and when negative, complete self-obsession.

I asked how she was doing as she boarded the plane. “Fantastic, and it’s getting better every minute!”
It’s that kind of day if we allow it to be…
The definition of tête–à–tête is a private conversation between two people. In the original French it means “head-to-head”. It is, perhaps, an inner dialogue with the perfect complement of oneself, idealized, as Jung defined the anima and animus. In any event, here is the best and the brightest and the most inspirational kind of experience one can have, whether within or without.
And should definitely include the within, should it not? I mean, if by now we do realize that within each of us there is the masculine and the feminine trying to rewire itself into ideal balance, then let us begin there. Ideally, you know, that perfect “alchemical marriage” exists potentially somewhere beginning in our very own minds. But the joy and ecstasy of then sharing it, or if not first, then at last coming to it. Ecstasy within, ecstasy without. That’s the ultimate tête–à–tête we’re going for — that which inspires to self-transcendent experience.
Onward to Ecstasy! Whatever inspires you, tap into that today!
Fantastic and getting better every minute?
I replied, I’ll have some of what you’re having!
