Astrology Book Review
360 Degrees of Wisdom
by Lynda Hill
Charting your destiny with the Sabian Oracle
The first practical astrological guide based on the 360 Sabian Symbols and their meanings
In 1925, an extraordinary thing happened: two people—a clairvoyant medium and an astrologer received messages from the world of spirit for every degree of the zodiac. These messages were channeled from a Brother of the Sabian Alchemists, astrologers who lived in Mesopotamia in the first millenium.
In 360 Degrees of Wisdom, Australian astrologer Lynda Hill introduces the first easy-to-use guide based on the 360 Symbols and their meaning. Illuminating both the concrete and mystical qualities of each Symbol, this book is full of intuitive advice. No knowledge of astrology is necessary, and unlike many astrology books, every page reveals answers for you about your life and what is happening around you. Ask a question, then pick a red card and a blue card from the specially designed pack of cards included with the book, and let the Symbols lead you to the answers you seek. More accessible than the Tarot and more relevant to modern life than the I Ching, 360 Degrees of Wisdom will help you discover a fascinating branch of astrology—and will guide you on your journey through life.
This book was published by Penguin Group USA.
The Sabian Symbols are:
An eternal inspiration for your soul
A guide to your path through life
A pure reflection of your heart
A connection to your soul's source of power
This book is a guide to life. It is the good friend you'd always want to be beside you to cheer you up with a kind word. It is the enigmatic accomplished Master available 24/7. And not finally, it can give you the essence of a reading without having to draw the astrological chart./p>
The book was released on November 30, 2004 in US and Canada. The Sabian Symbol for the Sun's position on that day (Sagittarius 9): "A mother leads her small child step by step up the stairs".
Lynda Hill writes in her book about this Symbol that it "pictures a situation where one needs to assist someone less experienced [...] to learn about life or to understand".
A wonderful quote from the book, related with this symbol, is very fit: "Every time you don't follow your inner guidance, you feel a loss of power, a sense of spiritual deadness... we need to be willing to let our intuition guide us, and then be willing to follow that guidance directly and fearlessly". (Shakti Gawain)
