Sabian Symbols of Broadway Musicals

I have become mildly obsessed with Les Miserables lately, listening to the Broadway soundtrack at every available opportunity.

So, just out of curiosity, I used Radu's handy Sabian Symbols Numerology Tool to convert the following song titles from the musical production into the appropriate sabian symbols. As you can see, there are several main themes, which I have grouped together accordingly.

Click on each song title to view its lyrics:


The letters in LES MISERABLES sum up to 49.

The Sabian Symbol associated with this number is:

A NEW CONTINENT RISING OUT OF THE OCEAN.


The letters in ONE DAY MORE sum up to 52.

The Sabian Symbol associated with this number is:

WHITE DOVE FLYING OVER TROUBLED WATERS.


The letters in WHAT HAVE I DONE? sum up to 63.

The Sabian Symbol associated with this number is:

THE GARDEN OF THE TUILERIES IN PARIS.


The letters in COME TO ME sum up to 35.

The Sabian Symbol associated with this number is:

A WIDOW AT AN OPEN GRAVE.


The letters in PLUMET ATTACK sum up to 35.

The Sabian Symbol associated with this number is:

A WIDOW AT AN OPEN GRAVE.


The letters in AT THE END OF THE DAY sum up to 71.

The Sabian Symbol associated with this number is:

NEWLY OPENED LANDS OFFER THE PIONEER NEW OPPORTUNITIES FOR EXPERIENCE.


The letters in A HEART FULL OF LOVE sum up to 71.

The Sabian Symbol associated with this number is:

NEWLY OPENED LANDS OFFER THE PIONEER NEW OPPORTUNITIES FOR EXPERIENCE.


The letters in I DREAMED A DREAM sum up to 65.

The Sabian Symbol associated with this number is:

A RADICAL MAGAZINE, ASKING FOR ACTION, DISPLAYS A SENSATIONAL FRONT PAGE.


The letters in CONFRONTATION sum up to 65.

The Sabian Symbol associated with this number is:

A RADICAL MAGAZINE, ASKING FOR ACTION, DISPLAYS A SENSATIONAL FRONT PAGE.


The letters in BRING HIM HOME sum up to 76.

The Sabian Symbol associated with this number is:

A WOMAN ACTIVIST IN AN EMOTIONAL SPEECH, DRAMATIZING HER CAUSE.


The letters in MASTER OF THE HOUSE sum up to 72.

The Sabian Symbol associated with this number is:

A BLACK SLAVE-GIRL DEMANDS HER RIGHTS OF HER MISTRESS.


The letters in ON MY OWN sum up to 38.

The Sabian Symbol associated with this number is:

A SLEIGH WITHOUT SNOW.


The letters in JAVERT AT THE BARRICADE sum up to 83.

The Sabian Symbol associated with this number is:

THREE FLEDGLINGS IN A NEST HIGH IN A TREE.

*Note: I thought this was significant because halfway into the song, a young boy named Gavroche sings about what "Little People" can do


The letters in A LITTLE FALL OF RAIN sum up to 74.

The Sabian Symbol associated with this number is:

TWO PEOPLE, LIVING FAR APART, IN TELEPATHIC COMMUNICATION.

*Note: This was also very surprising, because throughout the play Fantine is desperately in love with Marius yet can never get his attention...yet in this song she is content to die in her lover's arms


The letters in TURNING sum up to 40.

The Sabian Symbol associated with this number is:

A RED CROSS NURSE.

*Note: This is another surprising match...check out the lyrics and you'll see what I mean.

EDIT: I just realized that I share two different sabian symbols with Les Miserables in my natal chart...no wonder why I'm obsessed! :mrgreen:

Quote:
Mars: Same as I Dreamed a Dream and Confrontation

76__(16)
WOMAN AGITATOR MAKES AN IMPASSIONED PLEA TO A CROWD Rising of the human soul in demand for the recognition by the outer nature of the needs of inner being. Self-assertion.

___*When positive, the degree is an unswerving determination to expand every potential of being and take part in every possible detail of world-wide reconstruction, and when negative, a bias forever exalting itself.

Jupiter: Same as Bring Him Home

65__(5)
A RADICAL MAGAZINE DISPLAYS A SENSATIONAL FRONT PAGE The compelling power of social propaganda. Exteriorization of emotional sympathy in organized reform. Efficiency.

___*When positive, the degree is personality in its highly effective capacity for putting its stamp on everything it touches, and when negative, a perverse determination to quarrel with everybody.

Okay, a little more Broadway on France: Gigi

These will more likely bring up smiles rather than themes, but who knows? (Beware, I was a musical theatre major for three years...there may be a little more theatre history than you might like. )

Thank Heaven for Little Girls
Sabian symbol: 120 A DAUGHTER OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION.
If one considers Oklahoma as a revolution in American Musical Theatre, then Gigi may be one of its daughters.

It's a Bore
Sabian symbol: 35 A WIDOW AT AN OPEN GRAVE.
Hmm...I think that was how Gaston Lachaille was feeling about love and women when he was singing this song.

The Parisians
Sabian symbol: 58 A MATURE WOMAN REAWAKENED TO ROMANCE. That seems more appropriate for Madame Alvarez, Gigi's grandmother, rather than Gigi.

The Night They Invented Champagne
Sabian symbol: 148 MANY LITTLE BIRDS ON THE LIMB OF A LARGE TREE I think I'd rather have many little birds than pink elephants.

SHE IS NOT THINKING OF ME
Sabian symbol: 105 A GROUP OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE OVEREATEN AND ENJOYED IT. This is also known as "The Waltz at Maxim's", yet the point of the song is its secondary title. The Sabian really seems to fit the atmosphere of Maxim's, whether it is from the food or gossip.

And speaking of Gossip
Sabian Symbol: 31 A CLEAR MOUNTAIN STREAM.
I didn't say all of them would work.

Gaston's Soliliquy
Sabian Symbol: 69 A QUIVER FILLED WITH ARROWS.
Considering the musical arrows Gaston is shooting at Gigi, this is perfect.

Gigi
Sabian Symbol: 32 AN ELECTRICAL STORM
Actually, I would call it a lightning strike for Gaston, realizing he loved Gigi.

I Remember It Well
Sabian symbol: 79 A LARGE ARCHAIC VOLUME REVEALS A TRADITIONAL WISDOM. Now this one really works for the duet between Honore Lachaille and Madame Alvarez.

I'm Glad I'm Not Young Anymore
Sabian symbol: 119 A GREEK MUSE WEIGHING NEW BORN TWINS IN GOLDEN SCALES. Hmm...I'll have to ponder on this one for awhile.

Say A Prayer for Me Tonight
Sabian symbol: 119 A VIOLENT STORM IN A CANYON FILLED WITH EXPENSIVE HOMES. Er...umm...okay...

I tried some more song titles from the Phantom of the Opera, though I cannot say that I am as pleased with the results. Nevertheless, here are three finds I thought to be of some relevance:

The letters in ANGEL OF MUSIC sum up to 53.

The Sabian Symbol associated with this number is:

A JEWELLERY SHOP FILLED WITH THE MOST MAGNIFICENT JEWELS.


The letters in THE MIRROR sum up to 61.

The Sabian Symbol associated with this number is:

A GLASS-BOTTOMED BOAT REVEALS UNDER-SEA WONDERS.


The letters in PAST THE POINT OF NO RETURN sum up to 111.

The Sabian Symbol associated with this number is:

A PRIMA DONNA SINGING.

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

EDIT: I have changed the title of this board to Sabian Symbols of Broadway Musicals, so feel free to experiment!

Also, if anyone is interesting in seeing the entire list I created for the Phantom of the Opera, simply post your request

Come to the Cabaret, Old Chum...

The song Cabaret, from the musical of the same name, Sabian Symbol is 23 and reads:

A WOMAN IN PASTEL COLORS CARRYING A HEAVY AND VALUABLE BUT VEILED LOAD.

Kind of makes sense for Sally Bowles until the abortion...
