Sabian Symbols: Cupid knocking on the door
This universal idea is best expressed through planets in
Sagittarius 7 (6° - 7°)
STIRRING UP OF EMOTION
There's always something going on to keep us from giving up and losing our appetite to stay involved in life's ups and downs
In direct contrast to group consciousness, most people also experience the emotional intensity of falling in love, a temporary condition during which period self-centred feelings dominate and our concern for social approval is often minimal or absent. There is a huge challenge to somehow bring the balancing force of consciousness and reasonableness to bear upon the situation without denying the high degree of intensity of emotional experience, which keeps the life force operating strongly within us.
CUPID KNOCKS AT THE DOOR OF A HUMAN HEART
Cupid knocks at the door of a human heart
A visionary person follows their dream motivated by optimism – because they know that life is bountiful
Life is abundant. With the correct attitude of expectation and focus, we can inevitably draw deeply upon the resources that are all around, and receive rich blessings.
To do so it may well require constant renewal of our relationship with others, an individual willingness to change or refine anything and everything in our nature and circumstances, as an exercise in self-quickening.
There is an incurably romantic aspect to humankind that is brought to life in relation to others, time after time, notwithstanding frequent and repeated disillusionment. This surely speaks to us of hope and optimism. However often Cupid strikes, we always get caught again next time.
Seeking out an unattainable ideal and vision of self-fulfilment, we can go through unending social renewals, forming and then breaking the ties of association with fellows, ever moving on towards the allurement of a dream.
There is no limit to the horizon of our appetite for new experience. It is as fundamental a motivation as any other; it is creative, liberal and far-sighted.
Through this process, the integrity of our spiritual self is made known, since it is entirely necessary to become self-aware and sensitive to the needs and constraints of whatever and whoever we meet en route.
Unbridled desire, cupidity and self-exaltation are never far away, and can bubble up to take prominence at any time, yet – in all innocence – we seek only to consume and be consumed within the intimacies of involvement with whatever life offers us.
