The Sabian symbol for 2 degrees Aries is:
A comedian reveals human nature
Rudhyar’s take on this symbol is an intriguing parallel to the relational lessons inherent in the Full Moon’s placement in Aries, which is in opposition to the Sun in Libra. He suggests it relates to the development of reflective consciousness, the objective ability to look at oneself reflected inside a mirror (here we see that duality/relationship is innate in the meaning of this symbol), and to be able to see with humor the inadequacies that are reflected back to us. This ability to laugh alongside life and with oneself represents the victory of the reflective/objective consciousness over subjective feelings and moods. In other words, the triumph of the essential soul nature, which is in tune with the absurdity, transiency and eternal nature of life all at once, over the lunar nature of the emotions, who’s constantly changing tides have the ability to keep us at the mercy of our moods, naturally slowing and sometimes making impossible the process of self-realization.
The symbol for 2 degrees Libra, where the Sun sits at the time of the Full Moon is:
The transmutation of the fruits of past experiences into the seed-realizations of the forever creative spirit
This symbol clearly implies the evolution of self through an integration of past lessons and experiences and a forward movement into a more centralized, spiritual aspect of self, i.e. developing the inner contact with the “forever creative spirit,” the Creator outside of all space and time. Together, the symbols for the degree of the Full Moon and the Sun beautifully suggest the fruition of personal development that occurs through a committed, light-hearted relationship with something outside of ourselves.
As the primary relational axis in the zodiac wheel, the dynamic between Aries and Libra is one of self-interest vs. investment in the other. Between these energies we learn the appropriate degrees of self-assertion, compromise, courage, devotion, singularity, fusional transcendence, honesty and worship. We learn what it means to develop the self through investing in another, and how to work with our relationships to source our own authenticity. We also learn how to transcend our isolative ego through dedication to a union, something greater than our singular selves; and so we move much more quickly along the spiritual path in our awareness of the need to serve something outside of the self. This must be appropriately balanced with self-knowledge and self-discovery, of course, and when it is we find that a great tension has been resolved in life- how to approach relationship to strengthen the self, and how to approach the self in a way that strengthens the relationship. This beautiful mirroring function requires great levels of humor and levity, as it is often in the eyes of the beloved that we tend to take ourselves too seriously. Our relationships are then another great paradox that expresses the cosmic giggle of the universe. Relax expectation, faithfully commit in devotion, nurture the spiritual inner seed life, and watch the magic of love and all its psychedelic beauty.
The reason why our relationships are our greatest sources of spiritual growth is because they involve close contact and fusional dynamics with other human beings- those mysterious containers of life force who deeply challenge our ability to constantly relate to reality in honor of both its spiritual and physical aspects. What we are truly engaging with at a profound level with the other is the development of karma, the evolution of dharma, and the many stages of emotional cycles in between. To see the other person as an accumulation of both karma and dharma, to honour their path equally to our own, and to commit to the energetic dynamic that exists between us in order to liberate ourselves from the bondage of matter- that is true marriage in its alchemical, esoteric, and spiritual sense. With the fusion of Sun and Moon come all the secret chambers of life. Tread bravely, tread closely, and above all things- listen.
