Have you ever thought of the connection behind conscious and unconscious mind? Or the connection behind practical and divine world? If you have an interest in this greyish part of human mind then surely you have come across the terms of zodiac signs that are solely attached with astrology.
Many people believe that subconscious mind is the gift of God while the conscious mind which man deals with in practical world is nothing but a slave of the subconscious mind.
Then it can be derived that subconscious mind is more conscious than the conscious mind. Once Albert Einstein had said ‘The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.’
Intuition that arises from the unconscious mind is a sacred gift of divine. The intellect is a faithful servant. The intellect reflects as we see from the outer world. In our waking world, the servant rides while the sacred gift (Subconscious Mind) patiently trod behind.
A picturesque analogy can be depicted between iceberg and human mind. The subconscious mind is the bottom part of the iceberg that remains below the water level. Yet subconscious mind is the maximum portion of total human psychology that is responsible for all the events.
Coming to the ocean part, it is the ultimate consciousness. Specialists often discuss about the consciousness field which covers a major part of the subconscious mind.
Basically the true nature of ice-berg is water. Again ocean, which comprises of water, is considered as God. So speaking frankly, human being is part of a divine soul.
The subconscious mind is superior to conscious mind.
In ancient times while considering the sun shine symbols, the total sky which is considered as round (360°) is divided into 12 segments based on constellation which has an angle of 30° each. These symbols are also called Sabian Symbols. These symbols are a set of 360 phrases of words. The different images of the zodiac signs corresponds to the different word phrases. The phrases might consist of 2 words to 21 words.
These symbols were born in San Diego in 1925 by Marc Edmund Jones. He was a famous American astrologer and spiritualist.
The name was termed as Sabian because Sabian people were an ancient race of alchemist, who lived in Harran, a city on the banks of Euphrates river in Mesopotamia. The city existed from the third millennium BC to thirteenth century AD. The Sabians were engaged into Talismanic magic. It is such a type of magic that is involved in coercing a deity’s power into a physical object.
The Sabian oracle opens the door between our inner feelings and intentions and the conscious mind.
In ancient times at Babylon, the moon-cult was the national religion. They are also known as Chaldeans. The word Chaldeans mean ‘Moon-worshippers’. As the religion removed elsewhere, the Sabian people practiced the tradition of Chaldean astrology.
