Wind, Cloud and Haste is the Sabian Symbol for the 20th degree of Taurus. 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.


Did you ever think that your sun sign, while it may say quite a lot, can’t be totally detailed about every aspect of your personality, can it? Definitely not in an extraordinarily memorable way that makes all of your life seem very changed from then on. Well, have a look at these Sabian Symbols – they could well compel you to adjust your attitude! The Sabian methodology genuinely is quite exceptional.

What are the Sabian Symbols all about? The Sabian Symbols are images – one for each degree – that were clairvoyantly revealed by a mystic, Elsie Wheeler, and clarified by a leading astrologer, Dr Marc Edmund Jones. Each of them gives an ingenious clue about the principal significance of that point, which can unlock some very useful and provocative perspectives for you.

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.

That which distinguishes us from others is the ego; it gives shape to a unique set of attitudes, beliefs, habits and perceptions that spin the divine message into its own pattern of expression.

Interaction with the world at large subjects each of us to the spin of others, and we would become dizzily disoriented if the ego had less aplomb; it actually needs to feel a little self-important to do its job.

Constancy of change creates the illusion of superficiality; it often seems that not much in life has meaning or even consequence. Yet this view is itself a reflection of the instability of an underdeveloped ego. By investing more in the details of what’s happening, here and now, during ordinary, conventional and mundane events, the ego can develop its necessary strength.

Then what ripens within a mature individual is a masterly efficiency to bring a measure of control and stability even to non-ordinary events – those unfolding during the transitional stages of evolutionary, or possibly revolutionary, crises.

Having mastered two important control issues – what to influence and how to exert that influence – then the possibility arises to demonstrate a rising above the ego, a spiritual lightness of being. This hints at one’s exalted station, speaks of the soul’s essential freedom, and is akin to the cheering effect of sunlight.

There is a test of relevance. So much of what seems superficial and trivial is indeed truly trivial and should be ignored if we are to avoid wastage of our own precious life force through careless diffusion. What is and what is not perceived as trivial remains at the discretion of the individual.

Transiency – symbolised by the racing of clouds across a windy sky – stimulates a renewal of vitality. Each momentary scene is a picture of how various forces have found dynamic equilibrium to express one particular fleeting truth of existence; each new scenario is another examination to see if we can handle it elegantly.
