The Span of Protection – The 2nd Hemisphere of Pisces
Water Element – Common or Mutable
The formula is: sustaining-practical-universal-generalizing-spiritual-sensitive.
Dr. Marc Edmund Jones provides the official meaning of this Sabian symbol in his work, The Sabian Symbols in Astrology:
Pisces 27° A harvest moon
This is a symbol of life’s moments of culmination as the threshold of new achievement rather than as any canceling out of experience in the given aspect, and it emphasizes the fact that nature in her immeasurable prodigality is forever showering man with the products of her untiring creativeness. She is saying to him that his productivity is as rich as hers, and that the highly concentrated resources of the world are at the immediate service of anyone who will put them to use and so facilitate their replacement.
The keyword is BENEDICTION.
When positive, the degree is consistent effectiveness in dramatizing personal potentials, and when negative, loss of all opportunity by timid action.
The Spirit of Passion ~ Who am I?
Be productive! Dig deep! Go the extra mile! Engage your creativity! Be as prodigious as is Mother Earth in her bountiful harvest unto us! And when your harvest is come, may you say unto yourself, Well done, good and faithful servant!
The Path of Best Intentions
We will reap what we sow in the realms of time and space. Our efforts will be magnified by the unseen realms—mysteries which we cannot begin to understand or appreciate in their fullness. Begin therefore with the end in mind.
Remembering how small we are in comparison with who we are—is the power to bring forth an appreciation—a benediction—on everything we plant, everything we touch and nurture—the power to bring forth a bountiful harvest. And most importantly, to bring forth such a harvest within our relationships.

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.
