Sabian Symbol Book and Card Set
360 Degrees of Wisdom
Charting Your Destiny With The Sabian Oracle
by Lynda Hill
400 Page book comes with a set of Oracle cards
If you enjoy using the online Sabian Oracle, you're in for a treat with Lynda's book The Sabian Oracle: 360 Degrees Of Wisdom as the book contains far more information and advice than the on-line Oracle. You can share the book with friends, use it anywhere you go and watch what happens. The Sabian Symbols are extraordinary for insight, revelation and guidance. Miracles, big and small, happen in your life when you tap into their field. With the Sabian Symbols, you're not only tapping into the circle of the zodiac, but also into what Marc Edmund Jones - the founder of the Sabian Symbols with Elsie Wheeler, the spiritualist medium - called an 'ancient mind matrix'.
Seekers can find answers to their questions and commune with spirit in a surprisingly wonderful way. The book is big at 400 pages. Each page has five sections; Commentary, Oracle, Keywords, The Caution and quotes to illustrate the Symbol. There are some 3,500 quotes in the book.
In The Sabian Oracle: 360 Degrees of Wisdom, Australian astrologer Lynda Hill introduces the first easy-to-use guide based on the 360 Sabian Symbols and their meaning. Just like the Tarot and the I Ching, The Sabian Oracle is designed to answer any questions you may have, and often provides answers to the questions you didn't think to ask!
Though the Oracle is based on the signs of the zodiac, no knowledge of astrology is necessary: you can simply ask a question , then pick a red and a blue card from the specially designed pack of cards included with the book, and look up the answer in the book.
The Symbols can lead you to the answers you seek. More accessible than the Tarot and more relevant to modern life than the I Ching, The Sabian Oracle will stun you with its accuracy and intuitive guidance, providing you with a tool to guide you on your journey through life.

The bubbly lady who generously shares her Newsletter with our readers each fortnight has over twenty years experience as an astrologer. A kind and gentle person, Lynda’s readings and interpretations on astrological influences are so accurate and succinct she is considered one of the world’s leading authority on the Sabian Symbols. Born in Manly, residing in fair Avalon for 38 years, raising a family, travelling abroad frequently to teach others about the Sabian Symbols, author, lecturer, teacher, speaker and second generation astrologist Lynda agreed to let us share some content about her as a change to clear insights from her.
You have worked as an Astrologer for decades now very successfully, working here as well as giving Seminars OS. Could you give us some insights on how you maintain such a high level of quality and accuracy in your work?
I guess it's the same with most people who study their profession, I just tune in and it all comes naturally. I am working with a symbolic language with astrology, and the Sabian Symbols take you even further into symbols and these are fabulous for your right brain as they help expand your intuition and allow one to receive amazing insights.
The Sabian Symbols are an articulate and also very accurate method of reading energy/current influences. How or when did you first come into contact with them and what about them 'rang true' to you so you knew they were what you could utiliise in your work for and with others? (and how did this develop?)
Yes, they are extraordinary and they continue to amaze me - the whole thing amazes me, still, even after all these years of working with them. I first got into the Sabian Symbols in 1989 when my then astrology teacher mentioned them briefly in a lecture. It immediately piqued my interest and I bought a few books on them. I found them to be very interesting, but didn't particularly pursue a study of them. I then had a clairvoyant friend do a spontaneous reading for me on my birthday in 1991. She said that I would travel the world lecturing, particularly the United States, that I would specialise in a subject that very few others were doing and that I would become well known for it. I would also write several books, one of which would be hugely successful. I was incredulous - I couldn't lecture or write a book and the thought of speaking in front of people made me feel ill - I even cried once when I had to do it. She said that she was only "telling me what she was seeing".
Well, two weeks later, I realised that what she said was what I wanted, even though I had no conscious knowledge that I wanted it before the reading. I also, at this time, had no idea what my speciality would be. I sat in my office, closed my eyes and asked for the things she'd said I'd be doing. I also included having the respect of my peers and doing good works. Straight away, I began looking into the Sabian Symbols and was continually blown away by the messages they convey and the incredible insights they give into our lives, our motivations and what makes us tick on a physical, emotional and spiritual level.
Within 6 months, I spoke in the United States in Lansing, Michigan, in front of some 450 people. This was the beginning of what is now 25 lecture tours of the United States.
If you weren't so strongly drawn to Astrology what do you think you may have done instead ?
I love photography and could easily have gone down that route. Also, anything to do with travel as I've always been a traveller and have been to over 80 countries, going to many of them many times.
What do you do for 'down time'?
I love gardening and being outdoors, dancing, socialising and being with friends and family. I love going to concerts and seeing people perform their art.
What is your favourite place in Pittwater and why ?
This is a hard question as it is all so beautiful - I don't think I'm alone in thinking it's the best place on the planet to live. I have a particular affinity for Bangalley Headland - it is a wonderful example of nature's architecture. This question stretched my mind, Whale Beach, Avalon, Palm Beach - it is all so incredibly beautiful.
What is your 'motto for life' or a favourite phrase you try to live by?
Most definitely it's to treat others as you would have others treat you. Being into quotations, I have many quotes that spring to mind, but the simple answer is that I try to live by the Golden Rule which basically says to live life with a care for others and always with an eye on the idea that we are all just trying to live our lives and get on, no matter where we come from or what our status is in life.
