The Mystery of the Sabian Symbols and what they can mean for You:
Where did Sabian Symbols within the Zodiac Signs originate?
The Sabian Symbols are a set of 360 phrases that make up every degree of the zodiac signs. They have a very mysterious origin and history behind them. Historically, they originate from the Sabian tribe. The Sabian tribe was a mystical brotherhood from Mesopotamia. In 1925, in San Diego, California, the Sabian tribe’s messages were channeled through the clairvoyant, Elsie Wheeler, with help from Astrologer Marc Edmund Jones. All 360 messages were channeled in just one day. Marc Edmund Jones believed that Elsie Wheeler had tapped into the “ancient mind matrix” of the Sabian occult brotherhood. Jones wrote, “psychism seems to deal (a) sort of group identity, or with an intelligence which is immortal in the fact that it can be revivified and consulted at will.”
What are Sabian Symbols within the Zodiac Signs?
A Sabian phrase accompanies every degree of the zodiac. Some of the phrases are only two words while some are much longer. Each phrase corresponds to the specific zodiac sign degree. They are symbolic of the meaning of that particular zodiac sign’s degree. The symbols describe each zodiac sign’s degree by using a sort of metaphoric language. The Sabian Symbols start at Aries 1 and complete at Pisces 30. Each phrase holds a unique message and energy all their own. Some artistic interpretations of the phrases have been done to create a visual interpretation. It is the symbol behind this phrase and/or artistic visual creation association that we must strive to understand. We must seek the answers in a multi-faceted way to see how these symbols and their messages ring true to our lives.

You may find resonance with some of the messages, meanings, and images invoked by the Sabian Symbols, while others may leave you feeling perplexed. That is normal, as some of these messages do not reveal themselves to you until certain parts of your life journey, while others may be speaking of one of your past incarnations.
