As to my post, the one before the last, I have this recent observation to throw into the mix...
It is copied from a post of mine at the astrologyweekly.com forum and here pasted.
The other evening I tinkered with this concept and had an idea ... I checked the two symbols in the Sabians for the 15th and 16th of Aries and also those for the same of Libra...this arose from an idea of a 'pole' ["pole" in the electrical sense] and the imagery that Nikolai Tesla is said to have drawn in the sand to explain his revelation and theory to his brother[?] that Edison's electrical generator was inefficient due to being an 'unnatural arrangement' at odds with the natural mechanics of the Cosmos.
Here I need to emphasize that...while I and most every one else that uses the Sabian Symbols in applying the abstract concept to human psychology...if this particular set of "Degree Symbols" is in fact valid [..and I'm 99.99% convinced they in fact are ...then they are equally valid for scientific interpretation/understanding... just as I am claiming in this thread that the 'Traditional Signs" and their attendant precepts are. The 'rub' is in seeing it!
Now, Aries 15* is a bit difficult...and to be honest I'm not sure how it supports this theory at all... [wish it had some other description of the symbol than what was given because I do get the sense that "it's in there somewhere" ...so I'm just going to pretty much skip over it but would like to make mention, as to emphasize, that it does refer to a "weaving"
[symbol for Aries 15*can be looked up at this link: http://mindfire.ca/The%20Sabian%20Symbols/An%20Astrological%20Mandala%20-%20Aries%201-15.htm
The symbol for Aries 16* is thus [From Dane Rudhyar's book on the Sabian Symbols, "An Astrological Mandala".}"NATURE SPIRITS ARE SEEN AT WORK IN THE LIGHT OF SUNSET.
KEYNOTE: Attunement to the potency of invisible forces, of nature."
Now, think of an electrical generator, or an alternator, a cars' distributor [pre-computerized days of the automobile] et al of similar electrical devices.
Libra 15* [ibid.]: "CIRCULAR PATHS.
KEYNOTE: Coming to terms with the inevitability of establishing steady rhythms..."
...and now, recall and picture the 'points' on a distributor [those of you that are old enough to remember a distributor or learned enough to be able to do so.]
Libra 16* [ibid.]: "AFTER A STORM A BOAT LANDING STANDS IN NEED OF RECONSTRUCTION.
KEYNOTE: The need to keep in operation steady links..." ...Keyword: REPAIR."
Now, at this point you'll either "SEE", what I've been getting at here in this post, or you won't.. for those of you that can "See It", please follow along, and permit me to further state that, if this is implying what I think it is, and if my idea that Virgo and Scorpio are 'particularly and quite essentially
' involved in this matter, then there has to be at least a singular degree and symbol in both those two signs that are in some sort of mathematical ratio*
[aspect] to the "Top Dead Center" of both the two Signs of Aries and Libra [Hence why I choose both the 15th and 16th of Aries and Libra as the "TDC" of all Signs is in the middle between the two...that is to say at 15* 30' 30" of all Signs] and it could be found be in the Sabian Symbology...[or should be... it depends upon the one doing the looking...what they know of electrical theory and how well conceptualized the symbols were formulated along these particular 'lines of design' as to give cause to suspect.] *
I'm currently playing with a few ideas and even the possibility of 'Semi-Squares" in this theoretical model....meaning the 30th and possibly the 29th degrees of Leo and the 1st and 2nd degrees of Sagittarius...that is to say...immediately outside of the signs of Virgo and Scorpio.
