“Move your wings so I can see.”
The Span of Defensiveness
Phase 313
Air Element
Dr. Marc Edmund Jones provides the official meaning of this Sabian symbol in his work, Sabian Symbols in Astrology:
Aquarius 13° A barometer
This is a symbol of man’s great love for living his experience in advance, and of his gift for meeting every possible contingency by an effective estimation of his own potentials. He uses the power of the human mind for broad generalization or abstract insight, and balances this with the tendency of nature to operate at all points through quite specific and measurable dependabilities. He knows that life can always be made to reveal any pertinent details of its fundamental ordering.
The keyword is INDICATION
When positive, the degree is unusual keenness of observation and exceptional competence in judgment, and when negative, superficial uncertainty and a continual trimming to passing events.
The formula is: manipulating-ideal-ingenious-specializing-physical-receptive.
Weatherman’s Choice: Imagine Dragons – It’s Time
What’s springing up in your world?
We get to be the all of it or any part of it we want to be. Many have spoken of this concept of self-created reality, expressing it in various ways—the Yin or the Yang of it, the Light or the Dark of it, the Good or the Evil of it. Choices made in every present moment. Then there is the idea of reincarnation that we can come back and be it this way this time and that way that time. Or, and this is the one I hold fast to–the idea that all that we see is but a reflection of ourselves. Anyway, today’s septenary is about that—how you get to be. But you’ll have to decide how to “see” this concept of springing forward for yourself.
Let me be a weatherman and make a forecast
All indications are there’s gonna be some weather ahead real soon… Barometers, you see, measure atmospheric pressure, things that are building up, things that need releasing… Usually old stuff coming up in the present in fast and furious ways…
Speaking of Weather Divination – It’s IMBOLC!
Imbolc, also called (Saint) Brigid’s Day, is a Gaelic traditional festival marking the beginning of spring. Most commonly it is held on 1/2 February, or about halfway between the winter solstice and the spring equinox. It is one of the four Gaelic seasonal festivals—along with Beltane, Lughnasadh and Samhain—and corresponds to the Welsh Gŵyl Fair y Canhwyllau. For Christians, especially in Ireland, it is the feast day of Saint Brigid.
It is believed that it was originally a pagan festival associated with the goddess Brigid (goddess of fertility) and that it was Christianized as a festival of Saint Brigid, who is thought to be a Christianization of the goddess. At Imbolc, Brigid’s crosses were made and a doll-like figure of Brigid, called a Brídeóg, would be paraded from house-to-house. Brigid was said to visit one’s home at Imbolc. To receive her blessings, people would make a bed for Brigid and leave her food and drink, while items of clothing would be left outside for her to bless. Brigid was also invoked to protect homes and livestock. Special feasts were had, holy wells were visited and it was also a time for divination.
