Some three decades ago, in an attempt to produce a series of symbols that would be relevant to contemporary students of astrology, Marc Edmund Jones and a clairvoyant friend formulated the so-called Sabian symbols. Now Dane Rudhyar has taken these symbols and reinterpreted them to emphasize their character as a cyclic and structured series which formalizes and reveals the archetypal meaning of 360 basic phases of human experience. Rudhyar also demonstrates how the Sabian symbols can be used for divination. Like Tarot cards and the I Ching, they provide clues to the best way to face anxieties, or suggest what alternative courses of action might mean in one's life. In the form of pictures that are easily recognizable to people today, these symbols can be said to constitute a contemporary, American I Ching, a series of symbols that goes to the very root of planetary significance for our present era.… (more)

First words
Foreword: 

After I met Marc Edmund Jones in Los Angeles in 1930, he was generous enough to mail me copies of mimeogrpahed courses/ on astrology he was then sending to the members of the Sabian Assembly which he had founded.
1. Symbols and the Cyclic Character of Human Experience:

There has probably been no time in the history of human civilization when the word symbol or its equivalent in any language has been as much used or given so many varied meanings as it is today.
