Perhaps you have thought that your birth sign, whatsoever it may say about you, cannot really characterize you exactly? At least not with an exceptional sense that makes the whole of life seem almost poles apart from what it was before. Well then, have a glimpse at these Sabian Symbols they may make you change your mind! The Sabian approach certainly is very distinctive.
Well, you may enquire, what are these symbols? Sabian Symbols are 360 different images one for each of the 360 degrees of the zodiac that were clairvoyantly discovered by an exceptional person, Elsie Wheeler, and illuminated by a foremost astrologer, Dr Marc Edmund Jones. Each one presents a suggestion about the underlying importance of that single degree, which can get to the bottom of some very useful and provoking perceptions that you may find quite interesting.
It works even if its not your particular degree and yet a lot better if it is. Its best to allow yourself time to do it slowly, like a meditation. Let each of the short paragraphs sink in slowly and try to feel what it means, as well as using the mindor just sit with the images for a while and use your power of imagination to create some playful stories around it.

Having come to some new realizations about the essence of who you are, there is another stage you can adopt to decide to be different. You can influence a lot more of your circumstances than you usually do when you engage fully with the deepest part of your unique identity, by taking on the qualities indicated by your Sabian symbol.
Also if you are clearer about who you are, then you become a lot more certain about what you want out of life. You can set your goals according to an overall vision of the bigger picture, and that itself leads to a much greater chance of success. It helps with focus so that you keep your attention fixed on the required outcome.
Reading your own Sabian Symbol is a bit like getting a brother or sister to speak honestly about you. They know you well, with all your dark bits and your light, and although they love you, theyll tell you the hard truth! It can be difficult to hear, yet useful for those who are trying to become better people. It may be necessary to reread it a few times and think deeply about what is actually being said.
There is so much we could do with our lives! Opportunities are endless and very diverse, each day bringing little clues and teases to nudge us toward a little more unfolding of potential. Saying No to this and Yes to that surely requires us to trust our feelings and surrender to the inevitable that, come what may, we all end up being who we are: nothing more, nothing less.
Unacceptable levels of pressure of life can cause one to indulge in senseless flights of fancy, inhabiting a world of make-believe. Its not at all helpful to do this, can be quite disorienting and cause real trouble.
Nature offers unlimited scope to release each of us from psychological and physical burdens that necessarily arise out of our involvement in life. Sleep is the most obvious example, so too is daydreaming, and yet these are meant as temporary restful states rather than realistic alternatives to worldliness.
Certainly, there is a need to balance everyday strains and stresses by finding a lightness of being, which the image of two moonlit fairies suggests. It is the souls nature to fly and soar, and in moments when we can feel this, there are precious opportunities for inwardness and self-reflection; these arise as a matter of course whenever such a mood is present.
From this, one learns the ability to rise above any threats to well being that would result if one felt a sense of inescapable long term forced imprisonment in the realm of physicality and all that that entails: the compelling requirement to attend to the bodys needs and so many emotional challenges.
On the path of self-realization the sense of exaltation that comes form this lightness of being is a dynamic factor in other words, we move along more readily if such abilities are harnessed and used productively.
So the very inclination we have to space out can be productively channelled as a means to tune in and develop a transforming sensitivity. We then find that creative imagination has profound powers of healing.
Being occasionally detached from the normal heavy sense of self is truly liberating and such an ascendancy of spirit demonstrates the magical facility of selfhood.
