Dr. Marc Edmund Jones provides the official meaning of this Sabian symbol in his work, The Sabian Symbols in Astrology:
Virgo 27° Grande dames at tea
This is a symbol of life’s maturity as a threshold of new discovery rather than as any canceling out of personal reality, and it emphasizes the fact that each individual may pass on what he has gained and thereby have an effective continuance of himself through others. Here are the highly concentrated values of selfhood as the reservoir of racial assets, since the traditions of one generation are always the ever-ready strength of the next.
The Keyword is APLOMB.
When positive, the degree is an efficient administration of inheritance or position and a full capitalization on the opportunities of common experience, and when negative, a selfish delight in special privileges of any sort.

One minute to tea time! Prepare to lead now by example! Allow others to decide if they like what they see.
The flip side of King Arthur’s Round Table, we now have the symbol of the Grande Dames at tea. Both examples of gender-specific adults who are either self-appointed through victory in battle or, in the present party, some established and time-honored tradition of “Mother, may I?” Either way, lending the voice of wisdom directing to best course of action for the future, younger generations.
Lead, follow or get out of the way. Train a child when he is young and he shall not depart from it.
The Mad Hatters Tea Party is ever set a minute before it starts!
