Sabine

(săbēn`), river, c.575 mi (925 km) long, rising on the prairies NE of Dallas, Tex. It flows SE across Texas, then south to mark the Texas–Louisiana line. Near its mouth it broadens to form Sabine Lake (c.17 mi/27 km long; c.7 mi/11.3 km wide), then goes through Sabine Pass to the Gulf of Mexico. The Neches River flows into the lake. Port Arthur, Tex., is on Sabine Lake, and Orange, Tex., is on the river. The Sabine–Neches Canal divides above Port Arthur, the west branch leading up the Neches River to Beaumont and the east branch flowing to Orange. Part of the Intracoastal Waterway, it permits oceangoing vessels to reach these cities.

Sabine, asteroid 665 (the 665th asteroid to be discovered, on July 22, 1908), is approximately 72 kilometers in diameter and has an orbital period of 5.6 years. It is named after a group of people to the east of Rome whose women were abducted by the Romans. They fought the Romans but finally joined with them to become one people. In a natal chart, Sabine’s location by sign and house may indicate where and how one is most able to negotiate conflicts. When afflicted by inharmonious aspects, Sabine may indicate where one is taken advantage of.
