You need 12 for the zodiac signs and 30 for the possible degrees. Choose a card from each stack & read the phrase.

Craft stores like Michaels sell plain wooden discs in at least 2 sizes that are handy. Other people paint the glass aquarium stones.

Dane Rudhyar's book talks about getting 2 decks of playing cards where the backs are 2 different colors.

The signs from an astrology deck with 1 through 30 of a Lenormand or other numbered oracle work great, too! (I use the Essential Guide to Astrology and Flower Wisdom, a 32 card deck that's numbered. They both are cute small cards, so they play well together!)

This is a really good idea cardlady22. Ideal for anyone unfamiliar with astrology.


The Sabian Symbols relate to the degrees of the astrological zodiac signs. Each sign consists of 30degees. There is Symbol for each degree. Some astrologers use them. I'm sure someone else must have said this in an earlier post, but I haven't read all of this thread, so please forgive me if I haven't mentioned you.

Just adding to the thread for those looking through to advance their understanding on the Symbols.

Lynda Hill has a new additional home for the Sabian Symbols which is very user friendly and informative.
http://www.sabiansymbols.com

You can also find Lynda's Sabian Symbol Oracle generator there as well - just press on Oracle in the tab - or Press here:
http://sabiansymbols.com/oracle/

The Home Page is great to see where the Sabian Symbols are for the Planets as they move through the degrees. What energy is around in Real Time.
As well as the free information on the site there are also other levels you can subscribe too as well.

Happy Symboling!
