Libra 15° “Cycles of divining me.”

The Span of Expectation – The 1st Hemisphere of Libra

Phase 195

Air Element – Cardinal

The formula is: manipulating-critical-ingenious-specializing-spiritual-inspired.

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

Libra 15° Circular paths

This is a symbol of subjective fulfillment through a thoroughness of participation in experience, here dramatized by every individual’s gift for remaining true to himself at center. There are interminable repetitions in the events of personal life, but the consciousness ever holds to its orbit and the realization must remain constant. Man and his world may seem completely at variance with each other at some point of crisis, but inevitably everything falls into place.

The Keyword is CONGRUITY.

When positive, the degree is a rather extraordinary facility in self-adjustment or practical reorientation, and when negative, a tendency to think in circles and to lose all perspective in inconsequentialities.

MindFilter ~ They must find it difficult, those who have taken authority as the truth, rather than truth as the authority.

The Revolution of Consciousness (an excerpt):

“As the various structures of society begin to crumble and manifest their worthlessness, many people have begun to expand horizons and look to new (old) explanations for the nature of consciousness, the fabric of reality, and the origins of mankind and human civilization. New (old) spiritualities are emerging, in large part because quantum physics is redefining our understanding of reality, forcing us to re-examine ancient mysticisms which, in our ignorance, we dismissed as antiquated and primitive, replaced by the more “enlightened” and modern views of “god” that facilitated the fallacy that salvation rests upon something external – petitioning the creator or savior to influence your life in a positive fashion. And new sciences such as archeo-astronomy are redefining the current paradigm of human origins and the evolution of civilization.”

Libra 14° “Remember what you’re here for.”

The Span of Expectation – The 1st Hemisphere of Libra

Air Element – Cardinal

The formula is: manipulating-critical-ingenious-specializing-mental-responsible.

LIBRA 14° A noon siesta

This is a symbol of man’s basic competency, dramatized on the objective side as he is able to organize his responsibilities and withdraw his attention for a moment of inner reorientation. Implicit in the symbolism is a fullness of being through the everyday satisfactions which come as a reward of effort, or through a realization that it is possible to participate with profit in the common business of living. Here a subconscious fellowship with the eternal has its fruits in a freedom from unnecessary involvement in ephemeral affairs.

The keyword is RECUPERATION.

When positive, the degree is an incisiveness of thought or reaction and an effective directness of act, and when negative, a fundamental and self-defeating disinterest in life. 

The Long and Winding Road https://youtu.be/fR4HjTH_fTM

Whatever it is you must do to recuperate, do it. Do not delay the achievement of your goal to be your greatest version of your grandest self. Time is of the essence! Do not waste precious time on that which can never sustain happiness. Time to get on with your objective. Your quest awaits. And remember, never give up! 

We will not rest until we have reached our goal!

Libra 13° “Taking the road back to me.”

The Span of Expectation – The 1st Hemisphere of Libra

Phase 193

Air Element – Cardinal

The formula is: manipulating-critical-ingenious-specializing-spiritual-receptive.

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

Libra 13° Children blowing soap bubbles

This is a symbol of man’s reassurance through the presence of the beautiful and the good in every least promising form of human relationship. People are disposed kindly toward their fellows, but there is no growth in the mere rhythm of everyday routine, and human individuality knows it must be up and at the business of selfhood whether constructively or otherwise. Implicit in the symbolism is the challenge to rise above childish things while yet clinging to childlike ways.

The Keyword is ENCHANTMENT.

When positive, the degree is a consistent simplicity of character which enables anyone to maintain his touch with a transcendental magic of being, and when negative, a constant and idle daydreaming.

6 Impossible Things http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RQ0Ngpax7gw

Well, let’s take a closer look at these soap bubbles!

This is the house that Jack built

Here is the popular British nursery rhyme—a cumulative tale–that actually does not tell the story of Jack’s house, or even of Jack who built the house, but instead attempts to reveal how the “house-building” is indirectly linked to other things and people. Through this method we hear the story of “The man all tattered and torn”, and the “Maiden all forlorn”, as well as other smaller events, showing how these are interlinked.

Inter-linked—like soap bubbles that cling together. It would be wise for us to think on these things that stick together, things which attach, and things which accumulate in our daily experiences of life— Whatever it is we might think we are building, might surprise and delight us by becoming something much more that we had planned. We don’t really know all that will manifest until our building-story, bubble-blowing-experience is over.

In order to get the magical content of connection and process, do take time to imagine how the interactions and interweaving might be connected—how they might be working together synergistically. Be ever careful with the casual dismissal of such converging and coalescing occurrences by determining them to be mere coincidence. Consider, instead, that they might be emerging from a realm of “synchronicity”? Do appreciate that you are the creator of your own reality. Watch out! Here it comes! Your reality is bubbling up from within you!

Libra 12° “A secret freed in the heart.”

Libra 12° ~ Miners emerging from a mine ~ Keyword: ESCAPE⁣

“When positive, the degree is inexhaustible resources of self with a consequent uncompromising strength of character, and when negative, complete inability to develop personal potentials or rise above dull nonentity.” Dr. Marc Edmund Jones⁣

“A secret freed in the heart.”⁣

If You Could Hie to Kolob https://youtu.be/9Z3pjXmNq2g

Closure⁣

We like having closure on things. It brings us back to a place of peace, doesn’t it? But what happens when there isn’t that opportunity? Many things in life happen where there isn’t always closure as we’d like. We are left with a space that won’t close up—a hole or a gap—and we feel somewhat broken or torn. ⁣

Recently I heard the words “soul rip”… I thought about that. If we are sufficient unto ourselves, shouldn’t we be able to fill the gap by ourselves without need of outside help? Lots of things to think about when it comes to “closure”.⁣

Tessellation – Filling Space⁣

Disclosure⁣

Faust: “The Pentagram gives you pain? Then tell me, you Son of Hell, if that’s the case, how did you gain entry? Are spirits like you cheated?”⁣

Mephistopheles: “Look carefully! It’s not completed: One angle, if you inspect it closely has, as you see, been left a little open.”⁣

Non-Disclosure⁣

Have you ever kept a secret? Was it out of respect? Was it shared in confidence? Would the sharing of it be a breach of your honor? Is the not sharing of it mandated by a non-disclosure agreement? Does this non-disclosure create a gap or fill a gap? What is let in by it or what may escape through it?⁣

Full Disclosure⁣

As with all human beings, there is something in you – a space, so to speak – that nothing and no one will ever manage to fill. In this space, many outside ideas and thoughts will try to gain entrance. They, however, will never be sufficient to your requirements. There will always be some room left over, and you will innately know that something is lacking, that there is yet a void. Only the God and Goddess within–the divinity which you yourself already are–being boundless and infinite–can fill this illusion of “void”. When you have touched the source within your own divine being, you will know the joy that passeth understanding.⁣

Regular tetrahedra alone cannot fill space; they do not tesselate (fill space). Read more: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tessellation#Tessellations_in_higher_dimensions

“A secret freed in the heart.” Namasté ~ Saijin

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.

Libra 11° “Time to go bravely forward.”

The Span of Expectation – The 1st Hemisphere of Libra

Phase 191

Air Element – Cardinal

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

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

Libra 11° A professor peering over his glasses

This is a symbol of high ego on the personal side, or of the naïve self-confidence by which an individual is enabled to continue the role of superiority he has elected to play among his fellows. Implicit here is the refinement of self in whatever particular phase of excellence will promise recognition for itself, and also the acceptance of the form in which it is manifest. There is a subordination of all other considerations to the immediate dramatization of responsibility.

The Keyword is SPECIALIZATION.

When positive, the degree is a quiet mastery of events through a developed insight or depth of understanding, and when negative, a joy in depreciating others and compelling their subservience.

Don’t be Distracted

The more we come to know what makes us happy, the more peculiar we may appear to those who do not know us. But to those who do know us, to those who are brought into our sphere of influence, the greater our impact will be. Our behavior, to them, is a catalyzing agent and creates a deepening bond—a connection where real learning can take place.

Intuition and creative streams of consciousness co-mingle in this space in between where the whisperings that really matter can be felt if not heard. It is that look of one who leans in close to observe, to look at us with intent–over the top of their spectacles—and says, “My, oh my! You understood what I was hoping to teach, didn’t you?!”

By Touch Only ~ Horse Whisperer Extraordinaire http://youtu.be/igKJB3tg6Mw

“The girl riding the horse is a deaf mute…she can’t hear, nor can she speak. No bridle, no saddle…all commands are by touch only. This is one of those, “I wouldn’t believe it unless I saw it with my own eyes” kind of thing. She is in her 20’s, her father having passed away just 24 days before this performance. You can hear her dedication to him if you turn your speakers up a bit. Oh, did I mention that this isn’t even her own horse? No, it’s not–she is training it for someone else.”

Note: Research a year ago informed me that the rider is NOT a deaf mute. Such are hoaxes in the Age of Information. I’ll let it stand. We’ll see if you read to the end and if you, too, come to the same conclusion. Per the professor looking over his glasses, Question everything! Do your own research. Do not believe what I tell you simply because I told you! We all must learn to be sovereign individuals in charge of our own realities!

Libra 10° “Risky business underway.”

The Span of Expectation – The 1st Hemisphere of Libra

Phase 190

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.

Bastille ~ Pompeii http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F90Cw4l-8NY

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.

Libra 9° “The true artist reigns supreme.”

The Span of Expectation – The 1st Hemisphere of Libra

Phase 189

Air Element – Cardinal

The formula is: manipulating-critical-ingenious-specializing-social-responsible.

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

Libra 9° Three old masters hanging in an art gallery

This is a symbol of man’s capacity for embracing a universal reality within his own personal experience. Here is representation of the fundamental faculties of self-expression as they may be established in effective alignment with each other, thereby furthering every pertinent aspect of human potentiality. Implicit is the concept of the past and the present as irrevocably in partnership, every individual’s heritage providing him with a foundation for the achievement he desires.

The Keyword is ACCORD.

When positive, the degree is a gift for bringing people and events together in high appreciation of the greater values of life, and when negative, idle worship of tradition and destructive self-contemplation.

Liberace’s last interview https://youtu.be/8ZdjtYGYJyo

REIGN! To take hold of the three in one.

Habitual, Social, Mental. Any one of the three essentially denies the experience of the sublime or three-in-one potentiality of wholeness, true bliss.

Get your swag on and step right up to the mirror of Self! Now smile ‘til it takes the hide off! Be a master of yourself! Pull in the reins for your own ability to reign supreme!

Do the three-way mirror test. Hang around until you are smiling on all three sides. Then, and only then, will you see how you can reign as the three old masters do!

Inner Transformation – A Work In Progress – Leads to Outer Transformation

Be of one accord with self first. Now, about face! Go and find another to come into mastery with, too. Together a third will come into the throng!

Libra 8° “Rising up through the ashes.”

The Span of Expectation – The 1st Hemisphere of Libra

Phase 188

Air Element – Cardinal

The formula is: manipulating-critical-ingenious-specializing-social-receptive.

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

Libra 8° A blazing fireplace in a deserted home

This is a symbol of naïve reality, or of the basic law of the cosmos whereby all things tend to continue steadily in their accustomed function. Implicit here is the burning desire or capacity for passion which establishes man’s loyalty to each object of his self-projection and instruments his more consistent self-orientation through each phase of personal responsibility to the world in which he finds himself.

The Keyword is GUARDIANSHIP

When positive, the degree is an exceptional gift for enlisting both men and the natural forces of life in the service of self and its dominating vision, and when negative, a witless dismissal of all affairs to their own devices.

“Death on one level means life on another.” Avia

And within this darkness, I became the light. …In psychic spaces, in the darkness, look for that which shines the brightest. Follow it…become it…then, lead it.

“Vultures Chose Me” is a video by Green Renaissance that documents a woman’s flight with the vultures. It is simply breathtaking. I hope you enjoy it. http://youtu.be/LqsD3UqzkJQ

“That is freedom. You’re flying up there, and the sun is going down. It’s peaceful. It’s quiet.”

If Vulture has flown across your path you are being asked to be patient with yourself and think things through. Take your time before making decisions and choose paths that support your higher consciousness and your heart. Use all of your resources combined with your past experience to approach the problem from a different angle. Know that you are always free to choose your own path but be flexible while moving forward. Allow yourself to use all of your senses to navigate through this situation for your highest benefit. Call on all your resources to get the job done. Alternatively Vulture recognizes that you are fiercely protective of those you feel responsible for but you are reminded that knowing when to allow others to sink or swim is important too. Recognize the need for higher awareness in all those around you.” Spirit Animals

Libra 7° “Cometh hell or high water!”

The Span of Expectation – 1st Hemisphere of Libra

Phase 187

Air Element – Cardinal

The formula is: manipulating-critical-ingenious-specializing-social-sensitive.

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

Libra 7° A woman feeding chickens and protecting them from the hawks

This is a symbol of the creative division of labor between the functions of man and nature, and of the dual constitution of the soul in its responsibilities of conservation on the one hand and of development on the other. There is here every capacity for a control of events through a nurturing of the things which are desirable and a rejection of those which have no immediate value.

The Keyword is SHREWDNESS.

When positive, the degree is a high competence in administering the duties of normal experience and a very special skill in protecting the self’s real interests, and when negative, a complete personal ineptitude in the face of life’s everyday and recurrent complexities.

Out of Sight, Out of Mind

Where are the chickens in Vincent van Gogh’s sketch? Where are the hawks?

Things that are implied through action only!

With one hand she holds up her apron to create a pouch to hold the feed in it, and with her other hand she tosses it forth and scatters it upon the ground. All of this set against a dark sky. You can almost make out the texture of hawk feathers! But Van Gogh certainly did not mean to paint Libra 7 for us, did he?

But, if time is not, and if he was of another time and place, intended for our hearing today?…

Well, I think we should think more shrewdly upon these things…

“Now I understand what you tried to say to me… They would not listen, they did not know how. Perhaps they’ll listen now.”

Libra 6° “What happens when you add fire?”

Libra 6

The Span of Expectation – The 1st Hemisphere of Libra

Phase 186

Air Element – Cardinal

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

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

This is a symbol of experience as the practical or everyday substantiation of inner insight and conscious understanding. Idealistic reality is found to be sheer escapism if ever taken by itself or given any authority on its own account but is the sole dynamic for the human spirit whenever any individual actually stands face to face with his opportunity. Implicit here is the realization that man’s being has its beginning in the meaning with which it is endowed.

The Keyword is PERSONIFICATION.

When positive, the degree is power through the full employment of imagination for the discovery and development of human potentiality, and when negative, self-defeat through inadequate expectation and superficial allegiances.

Fire Power ~ The Last Element

What happens when you add Fire to the first three elements — Earth, Air and Water? I realize that Fire is considered the first element; however, it was the last one we, mankind, received, and so in the present consideration, let us considered the beginning from the end or what happens when the first comes last and the last comes first…

What will happen will depend on how whether we choose to destroy or to create with it. When we play with it, ignorantly or otherwise, we end up getting burned. This we learn from experience.

We could utilize it to stay warm from the cold, prepare warm food, cleanse in warm water. Those would be beneficial uses of fire. We could also create weapons with it, for protection or for violent aggression. Good or bad the intention, Fire will serve us as we desire.

That’s probably why Zeus didn’t want Prometheus to give it to us. We weren’t wise enough. He knew we’d get burned. But Prometheus knew that without it we wouldn’t survive; we’d die from the cold. Fire, dangerous to handle, but it’s the only way to survive. And, not only survive, but thrive.

Through it, we might find ourselves in the throes of immoral pleasures or passions. On the other hand, we could touch the higher realms of spiritual inspiration and magic–physically, mentally or emotionally.

Fire–it all depends on what we do with it. One thing about Fire; when you misuse it or use it, there will be immediate feedback. We will learn, one way or another. We wanted to be like the Gods. We’ve got our chance. We’ve got Fire power. How are we handling it so far?

“What happens when you add fire?” Namaste ~ Saijin
