Sabian Symbols

A new online tool has been set up at http://sabiansymbols.astrologyweekly.com and it assists you in using the Sabian Symbols in Numerology and in Astrology or as an Oracle, as described below.

The Sabian Symbols represent an extraordinary tool and can be applied in many different ways.

Their initial purpose was to describe each of the 360 degrees of the zodiac and then be applied in astrology, in connection with the planets located at the corresponding degrees.

This is one exciting way to use the Sabian Symbols and it can be applied to any branch of astrology: natal, relational, mundane, even horary astrology.

The Symbols can be applied to any point in the zodiac. They will reveal, at times brilliantly and clearly, added layers of meaning to the degree of any of the planets, any asteroids that one might use, the angles - in fact anywhere there's a zodiacal degree. My belief is that wherever one seeks meaning, one will find meaning. (Lynda Hill)

For instance, Mercury at the moment the astrology forum was set up last year was at 1 Pisces: A CROWDED PUBLIC MARKET PLACE, and the forum is crowded indeed, with lots of interesting talks and interactions between astrology fans.

Then the Sabian Symbols may be applied in Divination, as an Oracle, just select a "random" Symbol and read it. It yields extraordinary results.

The third way to use the Symbols is in connection with Numerology: just calculate the numerological values of the letters in a name or in a phrase, sum them up and read the Sabian Symbol associated with that number. If it exceeds 360, subtract 360.

The nice folks on the astrology forum came up with awesome examples such as:

'War on Terror' = 66: 'WORKMEN DRILLING FOR OIL'
'Genetic Engineering' = 107: 'THE SEED GROWS INTO KNOWLEDGE AND LIFE'
William Shakespeare = 79: 'A LARGE ARCHAIC VOLUME REVEALS A TRADITIONAL WISDOM'
Terrorism = 54: 'AN (INDIAN) WARRIOR RIDING FIERCELY, HUMAN SCALPS HANGING AT HIS SIDE'
Eve = 14: 'A SERPENT COILING NEAR A MAN AND A WOMAN'

The next step was to figure out that one could actually write a question in plain English, with all relevant details and read the Sabian Symbol associated with its numerological value. This is almost unbelievable, but I got extraordinary fit answers. The only trick is to write the question in full, no shortcuts or misspellings. You may even use it for horary questions, if the astrologer receives the question in writing... Isn't it cool?!

The bottom line is that it doesn't matter what system one uses to come up with a Symbol, there will always be meaning in it. And this is also a quote by Lynda Hill, who is, to my opinion, the world expert on Sabian Symbols.
