A Large Disappointed Audience

Here is a full view of A Large Disappointed Audience, a drawing in honor of the Sabian Symbol for '28 Aries.'

In his book, The Sabian Symbols in Astrology, Dr. Marc Edmund Jones gives this degree as...

...the transiency of the rewards in a life taken too literally and narrowly in its more superficial terms. Implicit in the reversed symbolism is the disillusionment that comes when an individual learns that he cannot depend on the applause of his fellows, or make the momentary mood of the masses any proper guide for the values he should pursue.

There is here the call to a selfhood which can rest secure in its own creative potentiality, catering to nothing exterior to itself.

The keyword is: DISJUNCTION...

positive manifestation: complete spiritual independence;

negative/unconscious/shadow side: a destructive assimilation of the self to every defeat or frustration of human kind.

To which I would add: the show must go on!
