An embassy ball is the Sabian Symbol for the 12th degree of Scorpio. 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 given thought that your sun sign, whereas it may say a great deal, cannot really characterize you exactly? At least not in a spine-tingling kind of way that makes every single thing in your life take on a different meaning. You may enjoy to have a glimpse at these Sabian Symbols – they could well make you see things differently! The Sabian approach certainly is very distinctive.

Well, you may enquire, what are these symbols? Sabian Symbols are 360 different images – one for each degree – that have been clairvoyantly derived in 1925, by a mystic, Elsie Wheeler, and unravelled by an American astrologer, Dr Marc Edmund Jones. Each of them offers a subtle clue about the central sense of that degree, which can get to the bottom of some very useful and thought-provoking points of view that you may find quite interesting.

It works even if it’s not your particular degree – and yet a lot better if it is. It’s 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 mind…or 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, they’ll 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.

A stable and fulfilling life requires us to develop and maintain loyalties. Without this, our need to demonstrate devotion is thwarted. And yet such loyalties are all too easily misplaced and need continual reappraisal.

From time to time it is meaningful and healthy to show where our loyalties lie. Such display is the authentic externalization of an inner truth, which could never even be known clearly were it not made obvious in public.

Our very individuality has no definition except as it is framed by the general background of what society holds as having value. It is irrelevant to a cat what you wear or say at an embassy ball, although to yourself and the others guests these things define you.

How you choose to behave eventually comes down to what has practical worth. A meaningful series of choices is arrived at by process of trial and error. To make this possible we have to discard what amounts to meaningless shows of conformity.

Civilization evolves within the creative tension held between the haves and have-not. Whereas high-achievers may feel the need for recognition and reward in order to be motivated to their highest efforts to raise society, should this degenerate to a smug demand for privilege, then corruption and decay will soon follow.

The politics of exploitation are disguised with empty words, false smiles and crocodile tears. If there is to be justice and the general sense of well being that goes with it, then those of privilege must prioritize the use of their resources with good conscience

One influences collective morality by demonstrating that one’s own life is stable. Any allegiances formed openly in the mistaken folly of youthful permissiveness are appropriately re-evaluated and corrected with the guidance of ones own informed imagination.
