Today is 15˚ Scorpio and marks Solar Samhain, the exact solar midpoint of Equinox & Solstice.
The Sabian message for 15 degrees Scorpio is, “A Girl’s Face Breaking into a Smile.”
Sabian symbols are metaphorical phrases that describe each astrological degree of the zodiac, for which there are 360. (they’re like messages from an oracle!)
It’s definitely an esoteric tool. But, if you sit with a Sabian Symbol message, a knowing begins to surface. They can be quite useful for daily reflections. And at times, I’ve found them to be powerful.
The following is an excerpt from Ellias Lonsdale’s book, Inside Degrees, which features his reinterpretation: “A Woman With a Gold Tooth”.
“You invent, conceive, bring into being whatever you hope for and whatever you dread. Usually the dreads come up more first and dominate for a while. In this cycle you scare up the world's most extreme melodramas, each one of them marked "no way out, no way through." If you should outlast your dread demons, and you shall, you will find, in a very different direction, that there are equally powerful hope angels. You hope and wish and yearn for everybody to go free and this wishing has deep, uncanny power. For you have been nourishing for a very long time two counteracting worlds: the one dark and heavy with foreboding; the other swept clean by the magical will to bring the world around right.”
We enter the darkness to find the light, and the only way out is through.
The cosmic alarm has been clanging away and many are awakening to its sound. Let's focus on all the eyes that are opening.
Let’s thrive in that silver lining...
and break into smile...
...with our thousands of small acts that transform the world.
May our magical Wills be ignited.
Solar Samhain blessings
