Libra 1° “Put your idea to work.”

The Span of Expectation – The 1st Hemisphere of Libra

Welcome, Autumn Equinox!

Phase 181

Air Element – Cardinal

The formula is: manipulating-critical-ingenious-specializing-physical-experimental.

Dr. Marc Edmund Jones provides the official meaning of this Sabian symbol in his work, The Sabian Symbols in Astrology:

Libra 1° A butterfly made perfect by a dart through it

This is a symbol of completely unconditioned potentiality, as this may be grasped on the imaginative side of life. Here are elements of individual consciousness emerging from a primordial formlessness, and of wisdom developing through the human spirit’s continual determination to project itself into experience. Each person comes into identifiable being through the nature which has been molded for him, and thereupon refines this for his own self-expression.

The Keyword is ARTICULATION.

When positive, the degree is man’s awakening to the need for some more whole-souled focus of character, and when negative, the loss of all true selfhood by a needless surrender to the world and conformity to its ways.

We have entered the social hemisphere of the wheel, Libra through Pisces. Here we are embarking on the pathway through Libra where we have the opportunity to perfect personality in order to facilitate the broadest possible sharing of experience with our fellows.

If you are the vision-board moon goddess or a goal-driven sort of fellow, this is a perfect opportunity to step into the zodiacal sign of Love with similar intention. We have 12 such opportunities to avail ourselves of sign-setting experiments of conscious expansion each year.

Consider what small change you could make towards enhancing your personality. Set your goal, make your vision board! Be encouraged! Be Brave!

The Butterfly Effect

“In chaos theory the butterfly effect is the sensitive dependence on initial conditions in which a small change in one state of a deterministic non-linear system can result in large differences in a later state.” Wiki

The Caterpillar Drive

Another option for the strong, silent type—the great silent nucleus? How about you run on caterpillar drive? They’ll never hear you coming!
