The Sabian Symbols are a set of 360 phrases that make up every degree of the zodiac signs.   They have a very mysterious origin and history behind them.  Historically, they originate from the Sabian tribe. The Sabian tribe was a mystical brotherhood from Mesopotamia.  In 1925, in San Diego, California, the Sabian tribe’s messages were channeled through the clairvoyant, Elsie Wheeler, with help from Astrologer Marc Edmund Jones.  All 360 messages were channeled in just one day. Marc Edmund Jones believed that Elsie Wheeler had tapped into the “ancient mind matrix” of the Sabian occult brotherhood.  Jones wrote, “psychism seems to deal (a) sort of group identity, or with an intelligence which is immortal in the fact that it can be revivified and consulted at will.”
