A Jockey Spurs His Horse, Intent On Out-Distancing His Rivals is the Sabian Symbol at Pisces 9°. It is about the mobilization of our energy and the skill in the drive for success in any social performance affected by the spirit of competition. Basically it’s about the rat race and the emphasis on mondern society on individual performance and the desire to win. This is ruled by Gemini in a twelve-fold sequence and, maybe I just don’t want to think that hard, but the only correlation that comes to mind is that Gemini guys do tend to be comparatively tiny. And they also like to be winners. The horse symobolizes the feverish release of energy controlled by techinical skill and long practice. Apparently, when this symbol is featured in a person’s chart it points to a need to spur one’s total self toward the speedy attinament of a goal. Ah, okay: Speed. This is a Gemini attribute to, that sign being ruled by quicksilver Mercury named for the fleet messenger god of immediacy, both in time and space. He traveled so fast he was nearly ubiquitous. He was also tiny, locked in perpetual adolescence with the cunning, prankster mind to match. Mercury is also the nimble god of the skillful and dexterous and adroit for whom excess weight is anathema. Likewise when we seek out a goal we must let go of all unnecessary baggage that might prevent us from its achievement. We must be completely geared to said goal. And, okay, here’s another clue to the Gemini rulership: Dane Rudhyar, scholar of these Sabian symbols, tags the keynote for this oracle as: Self-Quickening.

I don’t know about you but this is the exact energy I needed to be presented with today. On the shadow side, that orange OompaLoompa Donald Trump is a Gemini who is outstripping his own rivals. He is, after all, a skilled artist of the deal hell-bent on a single goal. We cannot let that douchebag win by the way.
