Winter Frost in the Forest is the Sabian Symbol for the 26th degree of Gemini. Here it is described using the 7 Words System – a way of understanding the complexity of human interactions that can be applied to all aspects of self-awareness and relationship, so that you quickly change your perspectives and get to a deep sense of what to do to improve things.
Have you ever thought that your star sign, even if it does give a huge amount of information about you, does not truly classify you very specifically? Certainly not in an extraordinarily memorable way that formulates the whole of life so that it must seem so very altered from then on. Well, have a look at these Sabian Symbols they could well make you see things differently! The Sabian approach certainly is very distinctive.
So you may want to find out what are these symbols? Sabian Symbols are 360 different images one for each degree of the zodiac that have been intuitively found by a woman, Elsie Wheeler, and unravelled by an American astrologer, Dr Marc Edmund Jones. Each one offers a subtle clue about the central sense of that degree, which can get to the bottom of some very useful and provoking perceptions for you.
It works even if its not your particular degree and yet a lot better if it is. Its best to allow yourself time to do it slowly, like a meditation. Let each of the short paragraphs sink in slowly and try to feel what it means, as well as using the mindor just sit with the images for a while and use your power of imagination to create some playful stories around it.

Having come to some new realizations about the essence of who you are, there is another stage you can adopt to decide to be different. You can influence a lot more of your circumstances than you usually do when you engage fully with the deepest part of your unique identity, by taking on the qualities indicated by your Sabian symbol.
Also if you are clearer about who you are, then you become a lot more certain about what you want out of life. You can set your goals according to an overall vision of the bigger picture, and that itself leads to a much greater chance of success. It helps with focus so that you keep your attention fixed on the required outcome.
Reading your own Sabian Symbol is a bit like getting a brother or sister to speak honestly about you. They know you well, with all your dark bits and your light, and although they love you, theyll tell you the hard truth! It can be difficult to hear, yet useful for those who are trying to become better people. It may be necessary to reread it a few times and think deeply about what is actually being said.
There is so much we could do with our lives! Opportunities are endless and very diverse, each day bringing little clues and teases to nudge us toward a little more unfolding of potential. Saying No to this and Yes to that surely requires us to trust our feelings and surrender to the inevitable that, come what may, we all end up being who we are: nothing more, nothing less.
Magick is a normal demonstration of life that requires particular space and time constraints. Freezing the moment has cosmic significance and is a necessary and sufficient condition of the art.
Ordinary habits of homebuilding and feeding ourselves are for comfortable maintenance of the status quo, while the discovery of ones full potential demands that we engage with the non-ordinary.
Natures supreme power and beauty shows us about such realities since for example, by nothing more esoteric than shifts in temperature and pressure to create hoar frost, she can transport even the most cynical materialist into wonderment.
Freezing to death that which is totally useless is her way. Purification through these transformative moments enables old cycles to give way to the new.
The beauty is incidental, a subjective human sentiment; yet is there anything more splendorous? Somehow the radical irreversibility of death deepens our sense of beauty, and raises it to spiritual levels.
We have then to see things with new eyes, eyes readied for new cycles and the inherent shift of perspectives. In this way we create our worlds afresh and in accordance with our newly expanded vision.
To bring about these magical moments, we have but to put aside our private concerns and become responsive to the great forces of lifes evolutionary imperatives.
