Taurus 26° “Not what you get, what you give.”


The Span of Enjoyment – The 2nd Hemisphere of Taurus

Phase 56

Earth Element – Fixed

The formula is: sustaining-ideal-efficient-generalizing-spiritual-experimental.

Taurus 26° A Spaniard serenading his senorita

This is a symbol of man’s unlimited capacity for self-establishment and for finding everything he desires immediately at hand, as here given emphasis on the ideal side. Reality is seen as the product of every least element the individual contributes to its overall effectiveness, rather than as the end result of whatever he may discover and pre-empt for himself privately. A poetry of living and a music of desire become the final touchstones for a true self-fulfillment.

The keyword is CONSTANCY.

When positive, the degree is the continual reassurance by which the will of man coaxes the depths of his soul into his experience, and when negative, futile attempts to control life by emptying blandishment.

Give a Little – Roger Hodgson 

Some give more.
Some give less.
Some give in.
Some give way.
Some give a damn.
Some don’t give a damn.
Some give too much.
Some give too little.
Some give up.
Some just keep giving….

And those are the ones whose well never runs dry. 

I think they are the ones that are not worried about what they get back…

How many times have these words been uttered! “After all I’ve done for you!!!!” These are the “expectors”! But what if that’s not how happiness really works. What if their sights are set too low! What if what we really desire lies beyond our 3D reality expectations. Consider the following advice on “If and Should”:

“An act of love has no expectation of return. Expectation is a limitation of imagination. Our imaginations are limited by expectation of outcome. To go beyond our expectations frees our imagination. It’s where we may come to know the truth of things by allowing them to be exactly whatever they are. Conditions. How do we remove them to experience unconditional love, you ask? Remove ‘if’ and ‘should’. An act of love has no expectation of return.” Brett Poe 6.14.21

Welcome to the amazing Sabian symbols!

These personal reflections are but an example of one person’s journey of discovery with the Sabian Symbols. This blog series was written in 2014 and 2015, during the last two years of my mother’s life. She and I lived here together in my home, and at the end of each day I would sit and write my reflections on each symbol. At that time I had studied the Sabian symbols for seven years. However, these blogs aren’t interpretations, they are simply my reflections about the symbols. Yet, they hold a very sacred place in my heart and in my memories. I have edited them lightly over the following years, but always preserving the essential feelings and energies surrounding that first attempt at writing about them. When this series is done being edited, around Scorpio season, I will most likely go on and begin a new blog series. Much has changed over the past nearly nine years! I have many other things I’d like to share about the symbols. But, for now, this is the first cycle of reflections.

If you are interested in beginning your own adventure with the Sabian symbols, I encourage you to begin keeping a set of notes of your own thoughts. You might begin your quest with drawing a Sabian symbol from the Sabian Oracle. You can find it by clicking the link below. Enter the time of the draw for later reference.
