For the next few days I am going to share the 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.
The Sabian keywords for the planets are:
SUN : PURPOSE; MOON – FEELING; MARS – INITIATIVE; VENUS – ACQUISITIVENESS; MERCURY – MENTALITY; JUPITER – ENTHUSIASM; SATURN – SENSITIVENESS; URANUS – INDEPENDENCE; NEPTUNE – OBLIGATION; PLUTO – OBSESSION.
The symbol is normally interpreted by the degree and minutes of the position of a planet and to the next higher degree if a planet has reached at least the one minute mark of a degree.
LEO 9 (31 July) – GLASS BLOWERS – KEYWORD : DEFTNESS
Theme: Creativity. This symbol speaks of creativity and artistry and to give them tangible expressions. Whether creating objects of art, or forming alliances or ideas, you will need to be clever and skillful in bringing your project to fruition.
Opportunity: Your greatest advantage lies in knowing what you want to accomplish before you start working. Use a light touch and move quickly to correct mistakes.
Risk: Guard against being too heavy-handed or twisting things out of proportion. Be careful not to embellish the facts or distort the truth.
What an important time it is to delve into our creative nature and wake up to this amazing potential within each of us. It may seem that we are at the mercy of circumstances but in reality we are masterful creators of our own lives. The realisation of this means that we cannot blame others for our current reality but need to delve deeper into ourselves to understand why we are where we are. It also means having hope because the realisation that we are co-creating our existence means that we can change it. What is your vision for your life”? What hopes and dreams are waiting to be born. Now is the time.
