Sabian Symbols List


Hi All, How are things going?
I realized the other day it was a little difficult to find someones Symbol without the Astrological degree, so I thought I'd make a list which may make it a little easier to find Symbols, and degrees. I'll do one Astrological sign at a time per post.

These Symbols are from the book 'The Sabian Symbols as an Oracle' by Lynda Hill. They are also found in '360 degrees of Wisdom' also by Lynda Hill. You can get a free oracle reading on her website and also find where to get the books:
