The Span of Expectation – The 1st Hemisphere of Libra
Air Element – Cardinal
The formula is: manipulating-critical-ingenious-specializing-social-inspired.
Dr. Marc Edmund Jones provides the official meaning of this Sabian symbol in his work, The Sabian Symbols in Astrology:
Libra 10° A canoe approaching safety through dangerous waters
This is a symbol of the necessary validation of all experience through an acceptance of risk, and of the refinement of personal skills through a direct contact with the recurrent exigencies of everyday living. Here the genius of the race is preserved by a fresh and constant participation in life’s transient situations. There is always the goal through which man is led to develop his powers.
The Keyword is COMPETENCY.
When positive, the degree is conscious and skilled resort to the course of action which leads most surely to success, and when negative, a primitive love of adventure and a wholly unintelligent faith in sheer good luck.

If stupid is as stupid does, does that also mean that genius is as genius does?
Never judge a book by its cover or an oracle by its mask!
We’re all ghosts driving meat-covered skeletons made from stardust! So what are any of us supposed to be afraid of?
One of the many things that we learned from Forrest Gump and his mom is that stupid is as stupid does. Also, that life is like a box of chocolates, and you never know what you’re going to get.
Lesson today? Life is risky business! Forest got involved in lots of risky stuff, though, and it always seemed to work out for the best. The way we live, the way we die. Things we think about along the journey. This is a good time to take a good look at ourselves, our journeys, the risks we’ve taken, are taking, and what we learn and think about along that journey along the risky-way.
We just never know how things are gonna work out. In the meantime, what is the best plan of attack in the situations with which we all find ourselves in now and then?
Ask self, how am I gonna be an optimist about this? There’s your lifeline! Grab it and keep on keepin’ on. Not what happens, but how you show up when it does! Be an optimist! In other words, take a peek at the glorious end from the rickety beginning to see how it will all turn out! Your answer is just a couple of clicks away.
