Sabian Symbols: Early morning dew
This universal idea is best expressed through planets in
Leo 10 (9° - 10°)
Reformulation of self into a better, lighter expression of being
The darkness of a cold night is symbolic of our troubles and suffering; yet a new day always dawns bringing its hope and fortifying the spirit. We have no choice but to engage with the trials and tribulations, yet with faith we will remember that sunrise always comes, and it brings with it a new day, a new way, potentially a feeling of optimism and joy. We can choose to focus our attention on the night's terrors or dawn's promise and all that we become arises from this choice.
EARLY MORNING DEW SPARKLES AS SUNLIGHT FLOODS THE FIELD

Delighting in every moment is the cause, not the result, of success
Whenever we overcome our tendency to accept personal limitation and procrastinate, we are supported by Nature’s gift of perpetual rejuvenation.
The real gifts of life are ever abundant and all around us in every moment – as long as we keep alert and notice things, especially unexpected occurrences.
An important life lesson, which allows a breakthrough to another dimension of contentment, is that we can relax and trust in the beneficence of Nature. All of our right choices are endorsed.
The image speaks to us of the continually surprising fillip we enjoy when life’s optimism reveals itself to us – in a fresh dawn, a spring day, or a rainbow – and we become excited by an event we have witnessed a thousand times before. Every one of our basic experiences is recurrent and the deep wisdom contained within them can sometimes reveal itself in quite unexpected ways. The morning dew is more than a phenomenon of pressure and temperature; it has a magical quality.
This quality underpins our expectation of success; our goals are sponsored by our feelings, and our feelings are more optimistic when we are refreshed by Nature’s wonders.
The greatest danger of life is that we lose sight of who we are and what truly outstanding accomplishments are at our fingertips. Every sunrise, and every conscious inhalation, is there to remind us that we are existentially magnificent – just by being alive, we achieve glory.
We have a talent, a very special talent, to find the better aspect of any situation. Even when threatened by disaster we can choose to access the optimism and confidence that we feel on a brisk sunny morning.
