Today is the last day that I will be sharing the daily Sabian Symbol for the Sun, the ruling Planet of the sign of LEO, from the book “A Screen of Prophecy” by Diana E. Roche. The Sabian Symbols are a set of 360 symbolically descriptive images, each of which is accompanied by an interpretation of each image. Each symbol matches an astrological degree of the 360 degree astrological wheel. They were originally brought into existence on some unrecorded date in 1925 by Marc Edmund Jones and Elsie Wheeler.

Theme : Bounce back. This symbol speaks to recuperation, and to the ability of individuals to re-eenter life fit and refreshed after major stress and strain. The image of sunshine just after a storm speaks to healing and rebirth. The storm is seen here as a process of cleansing and purging. Times of upset and turbulence are the necessary means for clearing away whatever stands in the way of healthy growth and functioning. The emphasis here is on recovery and reconstruction. Positive: At its highest, this symbol represents an exceptional ability to hold steady through turmoil and confusion and not lose sight of the higher purpose in all things. Negative: Emotionalism and a tendency to fly off the handle or get upset over every little thing.

Opportunity: Your greatest advantage lies in using stress productively. Stay centered and look for the silver lining in the clouds.

Risk: Guard against letting yourself get thrown off balance by disappointment or loss. Don’t rain on someone’s else’s parade or dampen their enthusiasm and joy with your bad mood.

Today’s symbol raises the question of how to stay positive and centered in the centre of chaos. Just like the eye of a storm, an opportunity exists to regroup and plan for the future in a new and renewed way. Every one will have their day of doubt and it is in these times that it is important that someone has the ability to stay positive and point out the silver lining.
