Sabian Symbols have been part of our astrological tool box since 1925, when Marc Edmund Jones and Elsie Wheeler created the set of degree symbols. Each degree of the zodiac is given new depth and meaning by these incredibly poignant images.

There are many ways you can use them. The simplest is as a meditation for the day-you can view the current sign and degree of the sun in the sidebar to the right, then find the corresponding symbol below.  You can also, of course, do this for any planetary placement, and you end up with a very good summary of the day’s energy.

These concepts are also applied to birth charts. Note the Sabian Symbol for interesting planets and points. The Ascendant, Sun, Moon, Mars, Venus, Nodes, and asteroid DNA are my favorites. To find out the placement of any particular asteroids, you can go here, and enter the asteroid number near the end. You can look up any asteroid, but DNA is 55555.

I’ve resisted the urge to add commentary, and I’m presenting these just as they are. You are meant to intuit your own meaning.
