Sabian Symbols: An angel carrying a harp
This universal idea is best expressed through planets in
Capricorn 9 (8° - 9°)
LOVE, HARMONY AND BEAUTY
Everything flows within us and around us, and when we can hear the universal sound of this action then we are in alignment with life itself
To the awakened being it is clear that all life is not other than the expression of a single sound, the ‘Word’ of Genesis, the ‘music of the spheres’, the ‘rhythm of life’. Unless we tune in to that universal, eternal note we will not hear God’s voice. The melody is one of harmony and beauty carried with love as its tone so, in order to tune in, these are the qualities we seek to embody as a way of life.
AN ANGEL CARRYING A HARP

Worldly success follows spiritual attunement
There is an overall coherence to life and it is like the harmony in music, in which each individual part is essential – and each added strand of resonant melody enhances the whole piece.
An angel carrying a harp has been ever symbolic of Christian heaven – a state of grace wherein all are in constant and cosmic attunement together. In life, when we tune in to this universal blending of energies, we are enabled in all of our activities so that we have no limitations in any situation, and we can therefore avoid frustration, disappointment, and the fear of lack.
Also we adopt a special gift for inspiring others towards their own accomplishments – we do this instinctively, by example alone.
When operating from this place of high attunement, we drive ahead to point of self-fulfilment, unrestricted by doubt or feelings of unworthiness, incompetence or irrelevance.
All of our own and other’s human motives are found to be legitimate at some level of comprehension – all of our simple fantasies show that we trust the pre-eminence of desire, which, in consequence, brings us to be able to realise our ultimate dreams of becoming a better, more fulfilled person.
Within us a deepening sense of the spiritual source arises – as it pervades all consciousness – and it is this which actually we are seeking to find attunement with.
Our natural condition is enthusiasm. In the unsullied state of their original inception, all the simple potentialities of experience express true spirit – and this lets us know something of the eternal, unabated glory of just being. It is when we feel thoroughly enthusiastic about what we are doing and being that we know we have reached this exalted state.
