This drawing is inspired by the Sabian Symbol for "30 Pisces": "The Great Stone Face" in the Dr Marc Edmund Jones version of the Symbols, Sabian Symbols in Astrology.
There are, as you probably know, word pictures or Symbols for each of the 360 degrees of the circle or zodiac. "30 Pisces", the end of the circle or cycle, is just before 00Aries00, which is a World Point--the Aries Point. In the West, Spring begins when the Sun reaches the Aries Point--the Spring Equinox--the beginning of the Western zodiac.
"The Great Stone Face" = "Human responsibility as an immortality of the soul, and of a way of living which has become a continual manifestation of its ideal and so a constant dramatization of its self-discovery to others as an encouragement to them in their own alignment to eternal reality.
Each individual selects the image within himself to which he would shape himself outwardly, and this he comes to resemble as in Nathaniel Hawthorne's tale, The Great Stone Face. Destiny is character as it most persistently constitutes itself."
Keyword:DISCERNMENT -The Sabian Symbols in Astrology, MEJ.
The Dane Rudhyar version of the Sabian Symbols, An Astrological Mandala, gives the keyword for this degree as: "ARCHETYPALIZATION...the power of archetypes as factors conditioning life processes. Keynote: The power of clearly visualized ideals to mold the life of the visualizer."
Or, alternately, in fewer words, and with some kind of a Celtic accent: we're all the otters of our own fat.
