Interpretation of degrees?

Ahhh, I just this morning got around to checking this post out more thoroughly.
The link provided by TamaraL is to Astrotheme which was relatively recently acquired by astrodienst, that is to say I believe it was sometime during this decade. Astrodienst has been persistently in effort to discredit any of the discoveries I have made in the last twenty years...

So of course, they took down that webpage just to discredit you.

It's not like webpages ever disappear for any other reason. :lol:

But if anyone has anything more to say about the degrees of Pisces, please discuss away.

Back on topic,

No, I didn't say that and I didn't mean to imply that. When I clicked on the link the first time it didn't take me to where TamaraL wrote that it would. Instead I found myself on some site that had an announcement that before I could proceed any further I would have to be subjected to "security check" and that If I wished to proceed any further and consented to that "check" then I was to click an on screen "button".

I've had enough experience with simiiar type sites that led me to one of those scams in which what happens that when you do click a "button" consenting to such you are then suddenly on a webpage, or site, that announces that that they are, or in some way are affiliated, with Microsoft, and that your computer is infected and therefore rendered inoperable and your screen becomes frozen on that websites' page which offers to resolve the problem, if you make a phone call to a given number or click yet another button, which I have never done as for not having to. To which I owe thanks to the excellent internet security software and services, I do have, by subscribing to that provided by[and if it is okay to mention the company, as this is for informative purposes pertaining to my explanation and is not a "plug" or an attempt to advertise? I then provide the name herewith as...] Kaspersky. I do know of a couple of people , personally, and have read many an account by others, that were victimized by the extortion attempt that was quite often successfully gotten away with by the perpetrators of the charade.

However after I saw your reply, which seemed to imply that it was a very innocuous link, I again clicked that link provided and found my self at a different page. That of one that is typically displayed when a website domain has become defunct and sometimes even offered for sale. That is also what many have encountered in having to deal with that scam, in that it does so at random, which, in my opinion, is "part of the plan", so as to either confuse the victim or whatever investigative entity that may do so in response to a complaint, or all the more likely so as to do so in an attempt to discredit the integrity, or intelligence, of the complainant.

I am not just some paranoid fool with an overblown belief in their self importance as you seemingly have implied. While my technical savvy concerning computers and the internet is, I admit, is pathetic at best I do believe myself to be most wise as to the nature and the ways of the wicked.

Again, I thank you for your time spent in investigating the matter.
Thankfully, ptv

P.S. I also do not mean to accuse or in any way imply that member TamarL was complicit in such a scam, rather that the weblink was very likely legitimate when she did post it some six years ago, but having having since then become defunct is now a rather "compromised" link.

To all others that are members and non-members alike, in order to clarify any confusion as to what ensued above. Is that it was the first link TamraL provided that I found to be compromised and not the one she provided to astrotheme.

In the last six or seven years [and to be quite frank I feel it has been from the "get go" as to when I first announced my findings back in 2005] I have have found myself to becoming more and more, over the passage of time, to have to "go back [two steps forward, one step back] to defend or have to explain something I wrote and presented, or already explained, defended, and have to explain it again and all the more elaborately at that.

It has now gotten to about a point at which all of my endeavors online being as like that of, what I can only express as, "One step forward and one step back".
This very involvement with this thread again, I found myself being 'dragged into', after a long interval of six years since I made one post in reply in 2013, being a very good example of such.

Having recently reconnected with an old acquaintance whom has, since the days I last heard from Her, become very much connected with the nation of China as for Her own studies and subsequent recognized mastery of an most ancient belief system and practice of health and well being , i.e. Qigong, it caused a much overdue realization that I've been pretty much wasting my time in forums such as this very one,in attempts to inform, enlighten, and educate the English speaking societies of the world about my producing the natal chart for Jesus/Yeshua of Nazareth and what can be derived from it as to everyones' true spiritual nature, the plethora of astrological information that is provides as to being a "template" by which to not only re-discover lost techniques of interpretation and forgotten knowledge they provide, bring back into the light many that have become "occult" due to their fading into relative obscurity, and expose those techniques and what is allegedly the knowledge therein to be in error and possibly even intentionally fraudulent.

What resulted from such a realization is an "epiphany", if I may so use the term without giving the impression that I'm hoisting some sort of "great truth" upon mankind that was revealed to me on a mountaintop by a burning bush, or something as the likes of that, as it is a personal one in regards to my own dharma here in this lifetime of mine.

That "realization" being that the only purpose that I can presently conceive of as to what such a natal chart would eventually amount to, although it will likely have many effects in other ways, is to bring to people an understanding of just exactly whom Yeshu'a/Jesus of Nazareth truly was and what his purpose here on earth was. As to which, not what a single sect of Christianity presently in existence, that I know of, being assuredly of that knowledge nor any that do demonstrate in their activities and actions towards others. [and the late Edgar Cayce stated to be, as a fact in 1944 when asked what of all the belief systems of Christianity was in fact the closest in being knowledgeable of, and in practice, as to what Yeshu'a/Jesus actually taught, His reply was just two words, "the gnostic"]

The "epiphany" was provided by Edgar Cayce's "proclamation" about the future of the Christian religion, and while no clairvoyant can accurately make predictions about the future... and the Tanakh, i.e. the Old Testament of the Bible to you "Christians", even says to not make use of such for any matter concerning anticipation of future events [yet, also, does recommend consulting those that can see it through the use of astrological practices but using it as to know of when times are most opportune to pursue certain activities and not specific outright "predictions" of what will actually occur and it even further delineated what type of astrologers should be used for such consultations] and also be aware that it was revealed that Edgar wasn't using an actual gift of clairvoyance when He spoke of things other than in regards to matters about physical health but that all such other information was being channelled through Him by "the Messengers from upon Most High that serve the Throne of Grace itself' and none other than them. [i.e. the angelic and, or, {depending} anyone of those known collectively as "The Great White Brotherhood", aka the Ascended Masters" aka "The White Lodge", and also please be aware that even that source said that as to the future nothing is "etched in stone", so to borrow a phrase].

Edgar said that, "True Christianity will eventually come out of China".
Thus, the epiphany, I had, is that this natal chart is of it's greatest usefulness in that land and is where I should be directing my efforts to.


As I stated in the foreword to my book, which I don't even have a copy of myself any longer and the original manuscripts' files are in a computer still under repair along with the revised manuscript, and thus I am forced to write in a synoptic form, [and even though I do identify myself as and am more than confident I may as for the prime tenet of Quaker beliefs is to "listen to the Inner Voice"] I am not what most anyone, if anyone at all, might or will identify as a Christian and that I indeed never did, nor presently, have a need of "Christianity" nor Jesus as an archetype, or "savior". [but, I did also add that I do presently, as to then and do so now, pray to Him along with those I have prayed to in the past. In fact when I do Pray to Yeshu'a, I only offer to be of service to Him].

I am a sisya of the bij, the Logos, the "seed word" from which all else is produced, 'OM', or 'AUM', however you wish to write it in the English alphabet, as is explained by the late Swami Sivananda in his book, "Japa Yoga", Himalayan Press [and despite the Swami's entrance into mahasamadhi in 1963, I have had darshan with on two occasions, the first in 1974 or 75, I as I didn't write it down in any sort of journal at the time, although it was shortly there after when I realized just whom it was and that was in 1975. ] The bij,'OM', the Logos, "the Word in the Beginning", is my only guru, satguru [sometimes spelled, sadguru] archetype, spiritual savior, et al. but I also wrote in my forward that as the bij, 'OM' is One with the Light, that same Light that Jesus/Yeshu'a declared He is One with, and then as such, all Christians have no cause to say I am in conflict with Him. As all beings united in the Eternal Light of God are also united with Gods' Eternal Truth as One.

As I also pointed out in my forward, I have no reason to try to "sell" or promote, belittle, badger, or even convince anyone to accept Christianity as a belief system, and in fact it was Sri Rama that did provide me with the profoundest revelations as to any ["spiritual"] entity that did so provide, the greatest, or most in providing overall understanding, being the bij, 'OM', itself...and, I also stated, that all true archetypes and avatars of God, are a way to a true path of discipleship and a Path to God.

All true paths , and their emissaries, are One, in the Light, in the Eternal Truth, are One with God.

May God Bless all who seek, or whom are already on, that Path.

Two esoteric degrees in the sign of Taurus, which has 2 star clusters: the Pleiades and Hyades. 10' Taurus (May day today) and 20' Taurus (represented as 3:40 hours/AM - it tends to fall on Mother's day here in North America).

Sabian symbol for 10' Taurus: A (Red Cross) Nurse Warm in Sympathy. Or A Woman Sprinkling Long Rows of Flowers.

and for 20' Taurus: Wisps of Clouds Streaming Across the Sky. Or A Moving Finger Points to Significant Passages of Time.

I would thought 10' Taurus had more to do with Mother's day and 20' Taurus about May day itself. In astronomy, the constellation's brightest magnitude star Aldebaran (Alpha Tauri) is in 9' Taurus or actually, 21' Taurus (4 hours, 35 minutes in right ascension). And fun fact Pioneer 10 is headed to the direction of Aldebaran and it'll take 2 million years from now to reach there.

And fun fact Pioneer 10 is headed to the direction of Aldebaran and it'll take 2 million years from now to reach there.

So, you're back in this old thread again, the one that had lain dormant for so long when you revived it last year contending, or implying, that the Sabian Symbols you brought into question were inappropriate, as for a reason you claimed was, because that degree is known by some school of thought, or another, to be a malefic degree.
And I replied that there are no inherently malefic degrees in the Zodiac nor anything material placed in the heavens by our Creator that is intended to be as such.
If, let's say as for an example, your Astrological Part of Catastrophe happens to be in the same Sign and degree as Saturn or Pluto, for two examples of possible effect that can activate that Part, at birth, or by transit, and possibly even progression, then you might truly have a genuine cause to sweat a little.

The Sabian Symbol given for the 10th degree of Taurus is that of [ibid.]

TAURUS 10°: A RED CROSS NURSE.


KEYNOTE:
The compassionate linking of all men.

This symbol reveals the feeling of human cooperation at the stage of pure altruism and service to the social Whole. On that foundation of Christ love (agape, or true companionship), man can reach a still higher level of experience made possible by the refinement of the substance of his being, his consciousness and his will. This goes beyond imagination and faith in the future - beyond Christmas tree celebrations - for it implies going into the dark to bring life and love to the tormented and the deprived.

At this final stage of the five-fold sequence we see what is finally open as new potentiality to the 'widow before an open grave' — the closing symbol of the preceding sequence. Personal attachment in love to a husband or wife has changed level becoming a
CONSECRATION TO HUMANITY.
"
This degree happens to be where the Part of Mans' Marriage is as derived from my natal chart.
It rather clearly explains why I have never married and have had long stretches of celibacy throughout my lifetime... and I will be 67 years of age on this May 5th.
One who is CONSECRATED TO HUMANITY", such as s monk of certain Orders, or a yogi of certain Orders of Yoga, or a Templar Knight, most often takes a vow of celibacy and, in addition, some even live their lives in isolation, just as many of those monks and yogis that live in monasteries and ashrams do.
As a sishya of the bij, I am not to go into seclusion but rather immerse myself in human society, among my fellow humakind, I never took a vow of celibacy, because it is not required that I do so, it's just the way that path unfolds or, at least as to, how it unfolded for me.

I am a yogi, a "sisya of the bij, OM", the Word of God is my Satguru and I am not to have any other as my means of salvation. [as explained by Swami Sivananda in his book "Japa Yoga"]That renders me as impartial, and thus unbiased, towards all other archetypes, avatars, satgurus, and the like and if they are legitimately that and you, or anyone else, that does have anyone of them in that role for you , and you earnestly follow the path they have given for you, and keep the rites of your faith holy and sacrosanct and faithfully employ them, you will achieve that goal which you have been promised by your faith. or your faiths' archetype of spiritual achievement. All paths to God are valid and worthy [as long as they are true faiths] and, then ultimately, you will realize at some point on your path that your only obstacle is yourself. As long as you remain intent on reaching that goal and don't allow yourself to be distracted by any allurement that is not a part of that path you will not fail in reaching that goal... you won't become an obstacle to yourself.

If you read Rudhyar's presentation [I am only recommending Rudhyar's presentation and interpretations as I have found then to be the most clearly and extensively explained imho, and that they certainly work best for myself] for the 30th degree of Virgo, which is the 1st step in the process of 360 such steps [or phases] of spiritual evolution that culminates with transformation into that which one must become in order to exist in the higher vibration dimension of existence that those who succeed do dwell, you will find that the Sabian Symbol for that degree is stating exactly that, as Dane presents the Sabian for the Sign and degree as... [ibid.]

"VIRGO 30°: TOTALLY INTENT UPON COMPLETING AN IMMEDIATE TASK, A MAN IS DEAF TO ANY ALLUREMENT."

..and Dane's 'Keynote' phrase for that Sabian Symbol is given as...[ibid.]
"KEYNOTE: The total concentration required for reaching any spiritual goal."

....as to which Dane then offers us his summation of the symbolism that is found for that degree [ibid.]
"This is the culminating step, the decision that results from a myriad of small choices. Still a shadow of hesitation can remain. Attention may be distracted from the Now by a voice from the past, glamorizing some old memory. The outer doors of perception and thought must be closed, so the soul can complete its...".

and the Keywords to be aware of, that is to say as to how He puts it all "in a nutshell", so to speak...[ibid.]
"CONQUEST OF ILLUSION."

The 360 Sabian Symbols are in their totality a process of transformation and they are not exclusive to the Zodiac. The Zodiac is a construct of mind and was divided into 360 degrees in order to work with that process of transformation as those 360 phases have existed since the very beginning when the Universe was created. Humankind came later.

As the process of this planets' own yearly transformation, that we were born on, are in fact made of, which in turn was made of our Suns matter, begins every year with the Spring Equinox, So does the Sabian Symbol of the first degree Aries begin at the very moment of the Vernal equinox, and also gives explanation as for why the Sabian Symbols must be used in reference to the Tropical Zodiac. The Signs are ever moving in relation to the Equinoxes, and that is why the attributes of the Signs as they apply to you as a person must be referenced as to the Sidereal Zodiac. Thus you are also given the basis of an explanation as to why the Sabians are not relative to any Sing of the Zodiac except as a reference of placement as to where and when they begin as that process and where they culminate as that process of transformation.
...and why they also have nothing to do with man made holidays and observances of the temporal calendar.


...and btw, the Sabian for the 20th degree of Taurus is [ibid.]

"TAURUS 20°: WISPS OF WING-LIKE CLOUDS STREAMING ACROSS THE SKY.

KEYNOTE:
The awareness of spiritual forces at work.

Any emergence of life potentialities from the depth of the vast Unconscious is answered by the spiritual activity of superconscious forces in a cosmic kind of antiphony. The individual who has taken a new step in their evolution should look for the 'Signature' of divine Powers confirming their progress. It may reveal the meaning of what is to come next. The 'wing-like clouds' may also symbolize the presence of celestial beings (devas, angels) blessing and subtly revealing the direction to take, the direction of "the wind" of destiny.

This is the fifth stage of the tenth five-fold sequence. It concludes a process, having experienced which the individual should find themselves more securely established in their own original nature, receiving the
BLESSINGS of super-natural forces.
"


...and the Sabian Symbol for the 21st degree of Taurus is; [ibid.]

"TAURUS 21°: A FINGER POINTING TO A LINE IN AN OPEN BOOK.

KEYNOTE:
Learning to discern what in your culture and religion is meaningful to you personally.

This symbol evokes the traditional practice, when one is in need of guidance, of opening at random a Sacred Book (for Christians, the Bible) and spontaneously placing one's finger on a paragraph. We are parts of a cultural-religious whole, and every whole has a message for its many parts, if these are willing to submit their little wills to the great meaning and destiny of the whole. In an even broader sense, the open mind can learn to detect "signatures" in many events which he has allowed to occur. The too great reliance on repeated symbolizations can lead to a schizoid state of over-subjective dependence upon signs and omens.

This is the first stage of the eleventh five-fold sequence of symbolic phases in the general process of 'Differentiation' (Act One). By relying on cultural guidance a person identifies himself with a differentiated type of collective response to a particular environment. It is a state of
SUBSERVIENCE TO COLLECTIVE VALUES.
"

I do so urge you to get a copy of Dane's book on the Sabian Symbols [or Marc Edmond Jones, or even Blain Bovee, for that matter, Lynda Hill's too if you would like to, but I do recommend using Bovee and Hill for supplemental, additional, understanding but that is IMHO, of course.] Dane's book should be read from cover to cover to truly understand why He presents them in the manner as He does and why they are also so important in use for the House cusp interpretations [and I'm not saying that Jones or any of the other authors I have mentioned don't do the same, for the reason I haven't read enough from those books yet as to make such a evaluation.
But if you know those other authors in fact do, or even if you don't have any use for techniques of chart interpretation that involve symbolism found for the degrees of House cusps, as such, then choose what author you will.
]

But as to whichever of the books you do choose to study of the four I've given, please read it thoroughly, and then LEARN IT, KNOW IT, AND LIVE IT"

It's been my pleasure to serve to the spiritual needs of my fellow members of our human race.

We are ultimately becoming ONE RACE, AS EVENTUALLY ALL FIVE OF THE RACES OF HUMANKIND WILL MELD TOGETHER OVER TIME.

I now presently know for certain, due to my recent acquisition of analysis of my DNA, that I am a mixture of at least four of those "Five Races", those that are identified by the colours Black, Red, Yellow, and White and that of the fifth is yet pending a decision by science when they have enough samples identified as such in the data banks of their computers.

Which demonstrates that just as I have no reason to be, nor am I, biased towards any one faith over another, I have no bias towards any particular racial type, or mixture of types, over another either.

We will all Be One, in the Word and the Light, when we all have successfully completed that process of spiritual transformation.

All Glory to God.

Greetings.

I'm going to attempt another way, a different approach, of explaining what the Sabian Symbols are and what they mean to us all and maybe it'll help a few people that might need another, or different, explanation by which to understand....I hope that I am successful or at least that this attempt helps even just one person.

You can't assign the location of the Sabian Symbols to any fixed star or constellation, in fact nothing that one can point to in the Heavens has anything to do with, as to, where the Sabian Symbols are. Not where they begin, or end, not even a single one of them. They are not affixed to any thing in the Heavens nor are they even affixed to only the realm of astrology. They represent what is within any cycle found in nature that is a cycle of transformation.

Our planet earth goes through a cycle of transformation in a years time. Beginning at the Vernal Equinox when all nature blooms with new life and the Sun completes its journey through the first 90 phases, the first 90 Sabian Symbols of the 90 degrees from Aries 01* to Gemini 30*.

Then through a Summer season of life at its fullest, as the Sun passes through the 90 degrees following Gemini 30*, from Cancer 01* to Virgo 30*. Now the Sun has journeyed half way through the Tropical Zodiac, and on Earth all has undergone 180 of the transformative phases, half of the complete cycle.

Then next comes the Autumnal Equinox, when the cycle of life begins to wane and nature starts losing its vitality a little more, as the hours of Sunlight here on Earth grow shorter, with each passing day. The Autumnal Equinox coincides with the first degree of Libra and the Sun passes through another 90 degrees and the 90 phases of the transformational cycle that comes with each of those degrees from Libra 01* to
Sagittarius 30*.

At that point, the final quarter of the cycle, the last 90 phases of the transformational cycle, begins with the Sun entering the next degree of the Tropical Zodiac, which is also the Winter Solstice, the hours of sunlight here on Earth are at their least and the hours of darkness are at their greatest. Life has died out, or gone dormant. Yet during those last 90 phases of the transformational cycle, those 90 degrees from Capricorn 01* to Pisces 30*, the length of time of sunlight on the Earth begins to increase again and then, when the Sun has passed through all 90 of those degrees and the final 90 phases of cyclic transformation have been completed here on Earth, comes the next Vernal Equinox... and the cycle repeats itself.

The phases of the Moon is another cycle of transformation, the Vedic cycle of the great ages which is known as the Yugas, is another cycle of transformation. Every seven years every atom of our physical self has been replaced in a cycle of atomic replication.* The universe is a creation of multiplex, myriad, cycles of transformations everywhere from the Macro, to the Meso, to the Micro.
What the Sabian Symbols are is the symbolism of what each phase of the "program", the "blueprint". the "computer code", of any, of all of those cycles have been developed from. It is a part of the "Divine pattern", or "Divine template", by which our Creator used to construct all the cycles that were "written into the master program" for the Universe.

As we are born of this earth we are a part of the cycle given for this earth as its program. That cycle begins anew at every Vernal Equinox and the only astrological connection it has is that the Tropical Zodiac is a means by which to keep track of when each one of those 360 phases of that cycle begin and end.

The moment your are born, where everything in the cosmos is at that moment, is when you where born from that "program". You are a part of the entire program, but who you are is a Being that arose from that which the program was at the moment you were born. Your birth chart is then that template of that moment in the program, that you were born, and arose from which out of. It is a blueprint of where, and what, the program was at that moment, where everything in the Heavens was at the moment, you were born. You are a construct of that template, that is your "Being" and as the Universe does change immediately after you are born and then changes again the next moment, as it is never static, but always changing and seamlessly as such as it is ephemeral, what this science of astrology is, is thus, the understanding of what your template of "Being" is, and how the change, at any given time you care to choose to know of, is affecting you at that moment, or had affected you in retrospect, or will affect you in the future.

*[If you ae curious about the 7 year cycle of atomic replication. From what I know about it, is what I read which I initially learned from the readings given by the late, 20th century clairvoyant, a channel for "messengers from the throne of Grace", Edgar Cayce, although I seem to recall also reading something about it in Sri Yuketeswars book, "The Holy Science". I feel that it is also important for me to elaborate on this just a bit. The firth year of each of those cycles is a most important year as it is said to be the most crucial year in that process of replication an d that is the year that one should take the best care of themselves as is possible. Abstaining from harmful food, drink, not getting adequate sleep, and not getting enough exercise,, as to have those atoms that are being replicated the in the best shape they can be as the one that will replace it is being modeled upon it. That is what aging is, or has to do with a great percentage of it. The inability of your physical self to replicate perfection, or the perfection that it should have been, In the world as it presently is, that is an impossible task for anyone to achieve but you can live a much longer and less physically troublesome life by doing what you can by following this guideline as to the best that you are able. The first cycle is from the day you are born to the day you have your 7th birthday, and the fifth year of that cycle is from the day of your 4th birthday to that of your 5th.

Now given that, just add 7 to each birthday from that of the 4th and you can easily determine when during each cycle that crucial fifth year begins.
Here's the sequence for anyone that might have trouble doing the math Each of them is that birthday to be followed for a year there after. the 4th, 11th, 18th, 25th, 32nd, 39th, 46th, 53rd, 60th, 67th, 74th, 81st, 88th, 95th ...and if you make it to your 95th birthday, May God Bless you and may you continue to live for as many more years as you wish to.

My 67th birthday is this May 6th. I will be abstaining from a number of of things on the list I made for myself and plan on keeping "regular hours" and that will mean that I might not be writing as much here for awhile as I have in the past. I like to write at night and into the wee hours as that allows me to write undisturbed and as such I am able to maintain trains of thought ...which is most beneficial when pondering some of these questions concerning the understanding of "True Astrological' understanding and practices.
...it may have something to do with the fact I was born right at sunset, too? Since I was in grade school, I've found that I've always done my best academical work at night and wrote my best term papers after midnight.... those that got me the highest grades, anyhow.

Happy birthday on the 5th, piercethevale!

Thank you passiflora, although my birthday is on the 6th.

I do want to add to what I wrote above or, maybe I should say, that I wish to clarify...

As to the Sabian Symbols being written into every cycle there is to be found in the entire universe, that is as to those cycles that are cycles of transformation, who is to say that they don't only just apply to our own planet earth and who is to say that they do?

I'm certainly convinced that they apply to our planet although the symbolism given seems to me to indicate that this "program's" precepts are interpreted through particular symbols that are only relative to humankind.

Dane Rudhyar saw that it does apply to all cycles of transformation but ...as far as I know... He never gave an explanation, nor a demonstration, as to how they apply to any other cycle of transformation other than that of humanity. As I explained, and did so give a partial demonstration, that they also apply to all life on this earth, as one can truly see for themselves just by observing the seasonal changes and the effect that has on all life forms, but as to these particular images, as seen and given by the clairvoyant Elsie Wheeler, and whether they are also appropriate in regards to any other life forms on earth does appear rather sketchy.

The Creator knows precisely what each of the 360 phases is, but does humankind have a word for each one, or even just one for that matter. Dane did leave us with a "Keyword" for everyone of them, and some seem very appropriate, and may even be the perfect single word that says all that is needed. But for many of the symbols Dane found it necessary to use more than a single word in his "Keyword" summation and a few of the "Keywords" He used, He used more than once.

If all materiality, the physical universe and everything born out of it and within it, were written as a computer code...which in a sense it is, that is the Hebrew Kabbalists say that numbers are the construct of it [not the exact words I read, and I'll try to find that passage that I read and post it in a follow up, but it is sufficient for now.], then each of these 360 phases would have then a different numerical code. That's where the spoken and written languages we use fall short. I have been in correspondence with Sabian Symbol Astrologer, and author, Blain Bovee, recently and He wrote that He thinks that Rudhyar fell short in interpreting some of the symbols and I believe so as well. .. although it seems that He might be finding fault with more of them than I...but we haven't gotten to that stage in our communications with one another as yet.

Blain Bovee is a most cordial man a true gentleman, a scholar of much erudition, and whom writes some of the most beautiful prose I've ever read. In fact I am a bit envious of his skill at writing. It certainly isn't my forte nor could I ever hope to improve myself to such a level, I just wasn't born with the ability nor the potential... in other words, 'It ain't in my stars"

He has some of his writing posted online at a website named 'Medium', but He informed me that he no longer participates at that website, any comments anyone might care to leave will likely not even be seen by Blain, and definitely not answered. He does have his own website and does do personal horoscopes but I don't know what his fee is, not offhand, anyways.

Thank you all for reading, and your interest in the Sabian Symbols, and I certainly hope that your interest continues and your knowledge expands.
To better astrology, and the betterment of astrology, yours truly ptv

P.S. I was going to add to the above that as to the dilemma of the difference of Season between the Northern and Southern hemispheres here on our planet and as to whether the Sabians then should be adjusted, turned 180* for a rectification?, or continued to be used doen under as they are up yonder? I can't say, I've not a single birthchart that I've ever done an analysis for from someone born South of the equator. I suppose I could work with a natal chart of someone as such of much historical and or public exposure but even then I wouldn't have anywhere near a sufficient amount of data by which to reach a conclusion... and besides, at my age? I haven't got any where near the time left to me to even get started on it and get beyond a rudimentary stage of understanding.
That's a task for you younger and, imho, especially those that are also of the Southern Hemisphere.

And I'm back on the thread the 3rd time, more info on Aldebaran of esoteric and great astrological importance. On the 10th degree of Taurus, that is the 40th degree in the zodiacal ecliptic, thinks about the 40 days and 40 nights. And Nisan in the Jewish calendar, the 14th (full moon in Scorpio date when the Sun is in Taurus) is Pesach or Passover, and in sidereal 9' Gemini is 14' Taurus.

(Aldebaran) (Alpha Tauri) (The Bull's Eye) (9 47 Taurus/9' Gemini in sidereal). "God's" Sword Hand. And in ufology, one of 3 extraterrestial origins (planets) of the Nordics/ Pleiadeans/ Humanoid aliens (the Pleiades and Hyades, then the Aries constellation gave the name "Aryans"). Aldebaran is said to represent Saint Michael, one of the 2 biblical archangels (the other is Gabriel).

It is my Mom's natal sun degree (I mentioned this before) and she named her firstborn of 2 sons after...Michael. My 11th house is in Taurus and I'm an Aquarius sun and moon, and she had a large circle of friends in the local Autism society chapter she started after I was diagnosed with autism in my childhood. And 9' Gemini is the 70th day, a month ahead of 10' Taurus which is 40 days.

Did you know that those names for those "angels" were given by the Hebrews after their captivity by Babylon?

One must be extremely cautious as to invoking any angel by name.

There seems to have some deliberate confusion caused as to the role of arch angels, archeons, what their names are, etc.

I've little doubt that some fixed stars are of greater beneficence than others but to base such an evaluation as such on names that some ancient source had given in association with is a practice I certainly want no part of and I do caution all others, in as much, to at least consider what I've written here.
I've not done much research on fixed stars, however. but to those whom have I ask you, "how assured are you of the sources that you studied, the translations of long dead language, the spiritual orientation of a long vanished civilization?" Babylon being one of those aforementioned.

P.S. As to the further correspondence with Blain, as I mentioned above... that ended rather quickly when I showed to him what all I have managed to do with the Sabian Symbols, the natal chart of Yeshu'a, my "runic explanation for the Zodiac", etc. He wrote back and said that He is suffering from eye ailments and could no longer communicate with me because of it.

A few friends of mine think He was a bit overwhelmed by it all...?
Perhaps, or maybe He has a eye ailment and can't read computer screens any longer?
...although He never did offer to talk over the phone or by any other means.
So, I do have to wonder?

I did eventually find that His interpretations for quite a few of the Sabian Symbols, those that I did get to read [two Signs worth], strayed far from what Rudhyar gave as his interpretations. And many of those had long been proven to me to be quite adequately interpreted by Dane, where as Blain's made little or no sense at all in the same type astrological application [e.g. Arabic Part, the Ascendant, etc.]

Still, Blain does write some marvelous prose and poetry.
