I thought it would be good to use the Orphalese software to record my daily sabian symbol readings and so set about looking for appropriate images to convey the meaning of each card.

Attached is what I came up with for this symbol.

Looking at purple_scorp’s image somehow reminded me when my father taught me how to ride a two wheeler. He was there every step of the way, showing me what to do. I became dependent on his assistance and when he wanted to let go of the bike, I panicked! ‘Don’t let go’, I pleaded. I couldn’t fathom being separated from his support and balancing it by myself…….and, the kids on my street were watching, eek! they’d laugh, if I couldn’t do it on my own. So, I can imagine how awkward and frightened this girl might feel….her first time. Once she overcomes her fear, shyness and self-doubt, she’ll be ‘dancing with grace’ in no time.

Doing something different invites new energy into our life……it all hinges on taking that first step. Once we breakthrough we’ll experience a personal freedom from the past, our life will begin to expand. Change always involves some kind of surrender and a passage into the unknown.

I think too, some teachers can have an overpowering force in our life. We believe they hold a special power and when we’re young, we think they’re always right! For a time we adapt to their way of thinking, until we adopt our own sense of power and intuition. That’s when we forge ahead creatively, individually, and with great passion.
