Goldsmith’s Revised Sabian Symbol for the 13th Degree of Scorpio tells us gives us this pertinent message/image:
Holding an old-fashioned microphone, a talk radio host makes a number of controversial claims, in an attempt to keep his audience plugged in.
Defiant independence of thought; supplying correctives to public discussions, often through mass media (broadcast eccentric views); cultural provocateurs (court controversy and even scandal; gain attention with extreme opinions, but may end up suffering for it); jolting people out of their complacency vs. toning down high-voltage ideas to make them more palatable; getting the lowdown; connecting the dots; putting together a new synthesis (overly excited by new but unproven connections; spout opinions to see if they have any resonance with the public); staying plugged into current affairs through television, radio, and newspapers; staying on top of an unstable situation (ongoing analysis as new facts come to light); roping people in and browbeating them into an agreement.
