Greta Thunberg Sabian Symbols
Iconic picture of our times - let's focus on the solution not the problem
Nobel Prize Nominee
Greta Thunberg was born in Stockholm on 3 January 2003. She is a renowned activist for action on Climate Change, has appeared on the cover of Time magazine and has been recommended for the Nobel Prize for Peace by three members of the Norwegian parliament.
School Strike for Climate (Skolstrjk för klimatet)
School Strike for Climate is the name of the movement that Greta Thunberg initiated in Sweden in 2008, this is also called Fridays for Future, Youth for Climate and Youth Strike 4 Climate. One phrase associated with Gemini 9, her North Node, is "rising to the issue of the moment". Rudhyar focuses on the particular aspect of this, which is the spiritual challenge to achieve self-mastery. She has had to overcome the limitations associated with Asperger Syndrome in order to get her message across to the world.
A million supporters
Her movement has attracted the support of an estimated 1.2 million people in 112 countries. This widespread reach of her influence resonates with her Jupiter position at Leo 17, which points to her dedication to a collective ideal, and having a real and deep concern for her fellows.
Having Mars at Scorpio 22, she has no doubt learned that it is necessary to focus ones desire on a goal with pinpoint specificity. Her parents have been persuaded to follow suit and become vegan and give up flying, which for her international opera singer mother must have been quite a difficult decision! She refuses to be associated with an organisation, stating that she is an independent activist.
Sacrifice for Children's Future
Her Pluto position is Sagittarius 19, Pelican moving their habitat, which teaches of the special quality of that bird, whose duty towards their offspring is expressed as extreme self-sacrifice. In trying to understand and explain her attitude to her compulsion to protest Climate Change, one of her teachers said of her: The only reasonable thing to do is unreasonable.
