The Span of Dependence – The 2nd Hemisphere of Capricorn
Earth Element – Cardinal
The formula is: sustaining-critical-efficient-generalizing-social-experimental.
Dr. Marc Edmund Jones provides the official meaning of this Sabian symbol in his work, The Sabian Symbols in Astrology:
Capricorn 21° A relay race
This is a symbol of an inevitable culmination for group opportunity, and of a continual enhancement of the individual’s skills and talents through his thoroughgoing co-operation with others in some vital phase of experience. Human values are established as they become the coin of effective relationship between one person and another, and their dramatization is the means through which man best discovers and refines his own latent potentialities. His importance to his fellows is his certainty of self-continuance.
The keyword is FITNESS.
When positive, the degree is exceptional skill in bringing the elements of any given situation to a functional wholeness, and when negative, complete inadequacy of self-resource.

Looking out at you
I see more within
Thoughts outside in.
Perhaps the reason we can’t forgive ourselves for our flaws is because we are refusing to allow another to forgive themselves for their flaws. We want to hold them accountable. We want to continue to blame them. And so, because of that limitation that we have imposed on other, we cannot with impunity, allow ourselves to forgive ourselves our imperfections. The divine I AM within will not allow such an injustice.
I Am; therefore, the task is possible.
Now, let’s call off all this silliness—this whining and complaining and griping–and get down to business. There is a task at hand. Let the Great I Am in you roll!
