Aries 7° “Free your mind, the rest follows.”

red_or_blue_pill_crimson_quill-2

The Span of Realization – The 1st Hemisphere of Aries

Phase 7

Fire Element – Cardinal

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

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

Aries 7° A man successfully expressing himself in two realms at once

This is a symbol of a creative division of labor within the self, such as distinguishes human kind from the lower orders of life and enables any individual to participate in the experience of many interpenetrating realms of reality. There is capacity here for a complete control of events by shifting from one to another focus of emphasis whenever it proves convenient or expedient.

The keyword is PROFICIENCY.

When positive, the degree is unlimited versatility and a special gift for divorcing the things of issue from whatever lacks immediate pertinence, and when negative, a tendency to defeat all self-competence in an unintelligent scattering of interest.

Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin

“The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you’re inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it.” Morpheus

PJ’s Manifesto, “Telling me your dreams” ~ The Hand of God

“You know what I love most about this moment. The only person who knows where I am right now… is me….it’s like looking into infinity. This is what perfection looks like. Big data hates this place. Free will. So they trick us. They take everything they know about us and they use it against us. To control us. They make it so easy. Don’t they? We can get a pill for any mood online. We come at the click of a button. We Uber our food. I mean, what the fuck? We’ve given up the right to choose in exchange for free shipping, and a money-back guarantee. We give them our data, and they make chains that fit us better…Wake the fuck up! Wake the fuck up!”

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.

Aries 6° “Construct brightly while you can.”

television

The Span of Realization – The 1st Hemisphere of Aries

Phase 6

Fire Element – Cardinal

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

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

Aries 6° A square brightly lighted on one side

This is a symbol of experience as the over-all sustainment of any personal or conscious being. A materialistic reality is found to be sheer illusion when taken of itself or given any power on its own account, but it also is discovered to be the servant of every human impulse whenever life becomes red-blooded or achieves a motivation and an effective appreciation of its own nature. Implicit here is the realization that things are given their fundamental ordering as they are accepted in consciousness.

The keyword is SET.

When positive, the degree is the absolute unimpeachability of a genuine self-direction, and when negative, complete loss of self-efficacy in a surrender to frustrations.

A Whole New World – Aladdin

Embracing the Infinite by Kelly Lee Phipps (February 5, 1971 – March 25, 2014)

Above the wavering sea stars await
your return
mirrored across the deep span
stretching within
The curving space between here and
there is endless
Yet it seems like you’ve been
abandoned in the emptiness

You can never stop the flow of dark imagery
coursing through your heart
Those chambers of guilt and fear always struggle
to contain the tingling fire dancing as your soul

It hurts to be free.
But when you step into your passion
the whole universe opens within…
And others may wander with black
holes for hearts
devouring your visions with their fears

But tell me. How old are you?

That’s not your age.
It’s simply the number of orbits
you’ve made around this star
You’ve made many orbits around
other stars like a timeless electron zipping around
an atomic nucleus
You are infinite!

And if you argue for your limitations,
you have to fight them.
But if you discover your possibilities,
you get to create them

So stand still,
gaze at the sky
Sense the reverence rising inside
And know that your being
Is an extension of eternity.

Aries 5° “Mobilize aspirations.”

9886374e296877886197720f3a478554

The Span of Examination – The 1st Hemisphere of Aries

Phase 5

Fire Element – Cardinal

The formula is: manipulating-critical-original-specializing-physical-inspired.

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

Aries 5° A triangle with wings

This is a symbol of the inviolability of man’s essential nature throughout every ramification of his experience, as long as he holds to the purity of his original impulses. There is here a very practical balance in his self-fulfillment, thanks to his threefold individuality in terms of skills, loyalties and values. Light rather than darkness remains the goal of his life, and his personal capacities become a continual refinement of every baser metal in selfhood.

The keyword is ZEAL.

When positive, the degree is the creative transformation of everything into an expression of enduring idea and a reflection of the real vision ahead, and when negative, blissful obliviousness to all normal or everyday considerations.

The Fray ~ Run for Your Life

Lady Bug Lady Bug Fly Away Home

Location, location, location!

The right time, the right place. The present moment. Things that make us get up and do it. Relocating to the path with heart. The call of the wind to take flight, now, not later. What is your aspiration? What is the call of the wind that you hear? Today’s symbol bids you onward to your goals. Time to take flight and be there!

“May the roads rise to meet you; may the winds be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face, the rains fall soft upon your fields. And until we meet again, may God hold you in the hollow of his hands.” Irish Blessing

Aries 4° “Hold on to what you believe.”

Aries 4

The Span of Realization – The 1st Hemisphere of Aries

Phase 4

Fire Element – Cardinal

The formula is: manipulating-critical-original-specializing-physical-responsible.

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

Aries 4° Two lovers strolling through a secluded walk

This is a symbol of the first innocent rounding out of conscious experience, and of an unspoiled assurance of personal potentialities for which no immediate sense of responsibility is necessary. Implicit here is the fact that reality is ever without meaning or power except as it stimulates the self to move in its own interest persistently and continuously whenever the least opportunity offers.

The keyword is ENJOYMENT.

When positive, the degree is an utterly naïve assimilation of self into its world and a complete flow of all effort towards some proper end, and when negative, the indiscriminate loss of the self’s real assets in pure self-indulgence.

Hold on to What You Believe ~ Into the Wild

Desiderata

Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons; they are vexatious to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter, for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.

Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment, it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.

Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here.

And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be.

And whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

Max Ehrmann

Aries 3° “Plans well-made are underway.”

hqdefault

The Span of Realization – The 1st Hemisphere of Aries

Phase 3

Fire Element – Cardinal

The formula is: manipulating-critical-original-specializing-physical-receptive.

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

Aries 3° A cameo profile of a man in the outline of his country

The keyword is EXPLOITATION.

This is a symbol of a real breadth of participation in everyday affairs, and of the extent to which every individual tends to epitomize the tradition and culture from which he has emerged. There is here the suggestion of both an impersonal self-dedication to broader community interests and a highly personal dramatization of the self as a focus for group actuality.

Brighter than the sun

Oh, this is how it starts
Lightning strikes the heart
It goes off like a gun
Brighter than the sun
Oh, we could be the stars
Falling from the sky
Shining how we want
Brighter than the sun

Sky phenomena are increasing. Are they real? What well-made plans are underway? More importantly, whose well-made plans are underway? Are yours? What is your plan? How will you execute it, exploit it? This symbol tells us. Read it again. If you do not tend to your plan, the others’ plan will surely encompass you. Begin with an outline, then fill it in. There is not a lot of time. I recently received this from a friend, “Humanity has entered a very difficult period… The pressure and stress to move forward and create other conditions is going to be enormous. It is necessary to work and work very hard… There is no time.”

Be up and about your business! Mind it, and mind it well!

Prajapati, a reminder to people of three divine qualities: Self Control, Charity and Compassion

Yod – The Finger of God

Accepting turbulence
Navigate content
Discomfort of not-knowing
Vague sense of insecurity
Humming dim as backdrop
Achievement unhindered
Extraordinarily acquired
In the margins
On the edge
O’er the top
Oh, shadows grey
Where others fear to tread
Draw closer still
Ere you slip from reach
Certainty in uncertainty

Aries 2° “Lesson One: You must toughen!”

2017-03-21_13-31-28

The Span of Realization – The 1st Hemisphere of Aries

Phase 2

Fire Element – Cardinal

The formula is: manipulating-critical-original-specializing-physical-sensitive.

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

Aries 2° A comedian entertaining a group

This is a symbol of the mirror which life holds up to itself recurrently, and so facilitates an everyday understanding of itself. The identity of each individual is projected back into the wholly naïve potential of his experience, thereby providing a fresh and transcendent self-perspective. Here is man’s heightened individuality as he discovers he may play whatever role he finds useful in each momentary contact with others, together with the continual self-reassurance he gains in self-rehearsal.

The keyword is RELEASE.

When positive, the degree is the power of personality through a full and completely uninhibited self-expression, and when negative, a neglect of common responsibility through idle diversions of interest.

The Reason ~ Hoobastank

“A thick skin is a gift from God.” Konrad Adenauer

The things we laugh at the hardest—our biggest belly laughs—happen when we are brought face-to-face with the ridiculousness of ourselves. That is our release of our self-judgments, of our imperfections–that which absolutely must take place at the critical core level to make way for a rebooting, a resetting of our very essence of self-understanding and self-acceptance, warts and all. We simply must let go, laugh, and see ourselves from a higher level. Get there. Do whatever it takes. Laugh! Roar! It is really quite hysterical! And, no, you didn’t recreate the wheel. We meet there in our humanness–for laughter truly is the best medicine and it unites!

Adam Sandler’s infamous comedy routine explains: “They’re all gonna laugh at you!” (a seemingly forever looping audio–in case we don’t get it the first time, I suppose…) Adam’s career in comedy began with down-and-dirty routines. Maybe you put your nose up in utter disgust, if and when you heard some of those, like “The Longest Pee”. Most likely, judgmental snootiness deemed him unworthy of worldly success. Yet, Adam left us laughing at him as he journeyed all the way to the bank. Something to think about…

So, let us not be too quick to judge. That is the lesson. We’ve got to learn to laugh at not only ourselves, but to tongue-in-cheek the antics of others. Seriously. Let’s learn to laugh again. If you want release, that is…

“Learning to let go should be learned before learning to get. Life should be touched, not strangled. You’ve got to relax, let it happen at times, and at others move forward with it. It’s like boats. You keep your motor on so you can steer with the current. And when you hear the sound of the waterfall coming nearer and nearer, tidy up the boat, put on your best tie and hat, and smoke a cigar right up till the moment you go over. That’s a triumph.” ― Ray Bradbury

For a time such as this

I won’t even venture into the revolutionary impactful communications known as memes, icons, or emojis! You’ve got your favs, and I’ve got mine! They sure do hit the spot, don’t they! ROFLMAO

Aries 1° “Where ere you go, there you are.”

Aries 1

The Span of Realization – The 1st Hemisphere of Aries

Phase 1

Fire Element – Cardinal

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

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

Aries 1° A woman rises out of water, a seal rises and embraces her.

This is a symbol of completely unconditioned potentiality, as this may be grasped on the practical side of life. Here are elements of soul emerging from primordial nonexistence, and of an essentially feminine receptivity calling up a more masculine or personal and self-seeking initiative. There is an implicit emphasis on the mutual interdependence of the emotional and purposeful aspects of self.

The keyword is REALIZATION.

When positive, the degree is an illimitability of experience of which anyone can take advantage under any or all circumstances, and when negative, a failure to find a place in life because the self cannot separate itself from its own private obsessions.

The Chosen

Healing. That is why revolutions come, so that there might be a healing. (If you didn’t click on the link above and watch the trailer for Season 2 of The Chosen, please go back now and do that. If you haven’t seen The Chosen, you can now! It is free and available on YouTube or on its own downloadable app so you can watch it on your phone! You’ll be glad you did.)

Aries is pioneering. Raw fire power. We need that now. We have that now. Engage!

Regarding the journey ahead:  Truth Be Told, Thoughts Become Things. You are divinity in the flesh… You are chosen. You are whole. And you can heal whenever you are ready… Now, go and stir up the waters, stand up! Arise! Now go forth and do what you came here to do!

“The way in which one gains whole wholeness is, first of all, to entertain the following radical concept: There is nothing that is intrinsically true about me that is wrong. Secondly, therefore, why am I having problems? And what you look for are the ways in which your inclinations are being used improperly. Now, very interesting word ‘proper’—most people think it means ‘correct.’ It doesn’t. The Latin root of ‘proper’ and ‘appropriate’ means ‘one’s own.’ So, when you use something improperly, you’re using it a way that is not suitable for who you are.” Robert Hand, Turning of the Wheel radio broadcast 5.16.14 with Chris Flisher

[A word regarding Chris. Chris was an Aries. He was passionate and creative. He left a great legacy for us. He passed on Feb. 3, 2022. But he has left us a treasure-trove of radio broadcasts on Astrology and a wonderful gallery of astrological mandalas in his artworks. Visit his site and bookmark his radio channel! You’ll be glad you did!]

An Introduction to My Work

I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce you to my work.

My work aligns with the 365-day calendar, not the 360-degree circle. In order to do this five additional days or spaces have been added to the wheel of 360 Sabian symbols. I call them the Days of the Divine Feminine. Yes, on Leap Year, there is an additional degree or spacing, which serves as Leap Day.

Thus, in my work, the heavens align in perfect order with the Earth and vice versa. For this reason, there are times when my work is ahead of the astrological sunrise degree and times when it is behind the sunrise degree and times when it is in alignment with the astrological degrees. You may have noticed this if you follow me and receive my daily blog notification emails. It is for those of you who have taken note of this that I am writing this explanation.

In astrological chart calculations using the 360-degree wheel, these five days are accounted for as “Holdover” and “Skipped” degrees to compensate for the difference between 360 and 365. Further, they are not the same every year! The Sabian Assembly invites you to download a free pdf Sabian Symbol sunrise chart for 2023. While there you might take a moment to read the explanation for these holdover and skipped degrees. In my work, there are no symbols skipped or held over, as each day has its own symbol. However, the dates on which these fall are matched into alignment with the calendar, the Earth’s orbit around the sun.

By the way, I am also an avid astrology student, and I am well-aware of the relationship and distinction between my work and astrological computations. I draw, study and read charts as do many of you, on a daily basis, and have done so for 17 years now. My work is not in opposition to astrology, but is my own creative alignment—an experiment, which I share with others and which is especially directed to non-astrologers. I understand and enjoy the benefits of both systems.

Let’s continue.

Where is this star pattern located, you might wonder. I placed one of the five points opposite the Galactic Center, which is at Sagittarius 28. It is the 3rd point of the star pattern. The placement for it is, therefore, between Gemini 28 and 29.

The five points I use are aligned with the seasons, given by Pythagoras as being five in number, not four. They are Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter and Terror Time or The Blackening. More on that here: Pythagorean Pentacle: Organic Cycles. Here are the five dates and Days of the Divine Feminine, which are also found in my book On the Shoulders of Giants: Advanced Techniques in Sabian Symbology by Saijin:

1st Day of the Divine Feminine – The Blackening – between Aquarius 4 and 5 – January 24

2nd Day of the Divine Feminine – Spring – between Aries 16 and 17 – April 7

3rd Day of the Divine Feminine – Summer – between Gemini 28 and 29 – June 19

4th Day of the Divine Feminine – Autumn – between Virgo 10 and 11 – August 31

5th Day of the Divine Feminine – Winter – between Scorpio 22 and 23 – November 12

Now that Cycle 1 is complete—collecting data, daily experiences, and creating templates—the analysis phase of Cycle 2 can begin.

How it Works

I hope you have enjoyed my first introductory video. There will be more in the future!

The culminating phase will be a DIY Workbook with access to a calendar library of all symbols and prefilled templates, additional resources and live Zoom Q&A sessions. Expected date is early 2024.
