A Child And A Dog Wearing Borrowed Eyeglasses is the Sabian Symbol at 21° Sagittarius which is also ruled by Sadge in a twelve-fold sequence. The use of imagination and make believe in anticipating higher stages of development is the keynote. The image hinges on the notion that one can hasten the evolutionary process of a being—by making the dog more human, through imitation, we might be accelerating its growth. Eyeglasses symbolize intellect and, with Sagittarius, we are always dealing with the higher mind evolving out of the purely animal, the Centaur expressing this development. If we wear the mask of a god, or the vestment of a guru, we are at once pretending to be them while also invoking their power to actually be them. It’s all about learning through imagination, better known as fake it till you make it.
