A Butterfly With The Right Wing More Perfectly Formed is the Sabian Symbol at Aquarius 25°; it highlights the development of ones conscious individuation over that of the emotional—the right side over the left. Actually what we are seeing is the transmutation of emotional into conscious power. Just as the maggot might be hatched in the trash and become a fly, so too is the caterpillar reborn as the butterfly. Birth is the provenance of the first house and sign of Aries, which rules this symbol in a twelve-fold sequence. And so this is a symbol of overcoming. We are taking ourselves off the Pisces trash heap of reincarnation, being re-born as a more evolved being, with the new mutation to prove it. This symbol portrays the capacity to develop the rational and fully conscious aspect of the mind ahead of normal evolution. Symmetry is in large part an illusion on all levels. Though humans and other animals are seemingly symmetrical, there are always inconsistencies. And metaphorically speaking we all have leanings for which we must compensate. How else do we know to move toward balance and less we feel the inherent imbalance.

With the previous Pisces-ruled image we spoke of the disenfranchised, the forgotten, the discarded or otherwise disabled. We were asked to have compassion. And now, perhaps we are able to see our own imbalances, our own handicaps, our own imperfections. Just as we are taking flight we realize that we have our idiosychrasies or impediments. Can we thus have the same compassion for ourselves as we have for others. Or is our giving to others a distraction from the necessary focus we should place on ourselves. Still, we must note the the Right Wing is only more perfectly formed; that is to say that the left isn’t imperfect, begging the question what is imperfection? A more perfect right said just goes to show that our evolution is happening through the conscious right-brained side of ourselves; perhaps because the soul level is already a form of perfect, immutable, and therefore can’t evolve but just always, already is complete unto itself.
