Have you ever considered that your sun sign, even if it does give a huge amount of information about you, does not in fact classify you very specifically? At any rate not with an exceptional sense that will make each and every part of life seem so very altered from then on. Have a look at the Sabian Symbols they might help you alter your ideas! The Sabian slant is somewhat unique.
So you may want to find out what these Sabian Symbols actually are? Sabian Symbols are 360 in number, images one for each degree of the zodiac that have been clairvoyantly derived by a woman, Elsie Wheeler, and deciphered by a leading American astrologer, Dr Marc Edmund Jones. Each of them gives a subtle clue about the core meaning of that degree, which will probably release some very useful and thought-provoking points of view for you.
It works even if its not your particular degree and yet a lot better if it is. Its best to allow yourself time to do it slowly, like a meditation. Let each of the short paragraphs sink in slowly and try to feel what it means, as well as using the mindor just sit with the images for a while and use your power of imagination to create some playful stories around it.

Having come to some new realizations about the essence of who you are, there is another stage you can adopt to decide to be different. You can influence a lot more of your circumstances than you usually do when you engage fully with the deepest part of your unique identity, by taking on the qualities indicated by your Sabian symbol.
Also if you are clearer about who you are, then you become a lot more certain about what you want out of life. You can set your goals according to an overall vision of the bigger picture, and that itself leads to a much greater chance of success. It helps with focus so that you keep your attention fixed on the required outcome.
Reading your own Sabian Symbol is a bit like getting a brother or sister to speak honestly about you. They know you well, with all your dark bits and your light, and although they love you, theyll tell you the hard truth! It can be difficult to hear, yet useful for those who are trying to become better people. It may be necessary to reread it a few times and think deeply about what is actually being said.
There is so much we could do with our lives! Opportunities are endless and very diverse, each day bringing little clues and teases to nudge us toward a little more unfolding of potential. Saying No to this and Yes to that surely requires us to trust our feelings and surrender to the inevitable that, come what may, we all end up being who we are: nothing more, nothing less.
Living in the physical world presents constant challenges that press us to get to grips with quite compelling realities. The naivet of youth comes head to head with the harsh truth of having to keep the wolf from the door. Whatever we have as a visionary life strategy will fail if it is impractical.
To learn how it all works means that we have not to be self-obsessed. That is a luxury of childhood, and simply will not do for a viable independent adult life. The ability to relate to others properly is a survival requirement; it demands that we take into account the words and needs of our friends and neighbours.
Through these interactions we are tested to hold on to our essential goodness and innocence, at all costs affirming lightness of being when cynicism threatens. If we place reliance upon our own ability to do this, then in turn others will come to rely upon us that we will always hold up a candle rather than fear and blame the darkness.
Each single interaction with each and every person in each particular moment is of consequence. On some mysterious level, a pulse is energized by all aspects of our lives, a vibration which goes out and re-echoes throughout eternity. In this way we come to know something of our immortality. In essence, nothing that was ever alive can ever die, even on the level of thought and feeling.
So we raise our light to the outer world; this is done not only to proclaim but also to remember. We have to overcome fear or reluctance to show of our light, since by showing it we keep it alive and even influence others to keep their light shining. A lighted candle touches our sense of sacred, it cheers and inspires people.
The main thing in all this is to know how to raise even mundane connections with situations and people hidden beneath the dross of everyday life there can be found gold: a higher meaning that is evidence of the universal, eternal, all-pervasive nature of spirit. It rises to the surface whenever two or more people engage with as much sensitivity to the others viewpoint as to their own values.
The inner experience of such interactions can awaken our awareness of another reality; it is ever-present yet rarely invoked: the sense of transcendence. This aspect of life, though entirely natural and ever accessible, is nonetheless non-ordinary. The highest within us connects to the highest there is, and for a few moments we get a sense of the interconnectedness of all things throughout eternity.
