William Meader – Esoteric Astrology: Revealing the Soul’s Intention

William Meader – Esoteric Astrology: Revealing the Soul’s Intention


It’s good to be back, it’s been a year since I’ve been here, and it’s just a zoomed by so Yeah, my goal today is to Share with you some of the fundamentals of esoteric astrology, which is a little bit different than traditional astrology? Ahm, in the in a couple of ways Fundamentally esoteric astrology is much more related to or is useful to people that have actually had an awakening to People that have an awakening to their higher promptings Traditional astrology is very good when it comes to understanding the personality dimension of life, but once a person has come to that time in life or that particular incarnation where there’s a deeper something being felt a higher kind of love being felt a recognition of a kind of selfless almost christ-like love Being felt that’s called the awakening it’s a big big point in the evolutionary journey of the human soul over the vastness of time and Once that awakening occurs in one life or another Life is never the same, and it’s it’s at that point where we begin to see the usefulness of esoteric astrology ah because esoteric astrology is got a fundamental couple of goals one is In a certain sense, it’s designed to help us understand how Does the soul want to pattern? the nature of consciousness In the life and also how may the lower self get in the way and what can be done about it So the premise behind this whole philosophy Or I should say this this the astrology portion of this philosophy, is that a person has recognized their own duality They’ve recognized that higher and lower and this particular type of astrology is trying to cater cater to the higher The soul and help you understand how to transform the lower the personality so that it becomes the rightful servant to the higher and that’s the goal the soul is who you truly are and Ultimately your personality its destiny is to just be the outer garment. It’s destiny is to be the instrument through which the soul Tries to interface in the world and in the process of interfacing making uplifting Contribution to something beyond yourself Every human soul wants to serve And yet it we have to recognize it and we have to Understand how the personality needs to conform to its expectations So the goal tonight is to is kind of twofold. I’m going to do a PowerPoint with you today and The first few slides are just going to be showing you a couple major distinctions between Esoteric astrology and traditional astrology, and then I’m going to take you on a journey and I’m gonna take you through the 12 signs of the zodiac and I’m gonna give you a higher understanding of each of these signs and And hopefully for those of you who feel life is really a spiritual journey Hopefully you get some insights into your own journey itself. That’s my goal sound okay Okay, so let’s begin esoteric astrology versus personal or traditional So esoteric astrology focuses on the purpose of the soul and it’s struggled to transform the personality But personal astrology focuses on the personality development and its expression, okay? Next Because the soul is found on the abstract plane of mind an esoteric astrologer will interpret a chart abstractly Abstractly, so you will see as I go through this you will see that the language I use will have a more abstract quality to it because then that’s why the whole philosophy is Abstract those of you have studied Blavatsky unless you know it’s very abstract, but there’s a reason for that because your causal body your soul is found on the abstract mental plane the higher mental plane and So the more we exercise and develop our abstract consciousness The more you’re in the neighborhood of the soul Personal astrologers tend to interpret a chart concretely at least comparatively speaking In esoteric astrology the rising sign holds the clue to the soul’s incarnation ‘el intention It’s an important concept in traditional astrology the rising sign Which is the sign? That’s cresting at the eastern horizon at the moment of your birth and? It’s really important in traditional astrology But when a person has had the awakening has has a deeper sense of their soul call then the rising sign has a higher meaning as suggested here You see and let me just show you the bottom part of the personal astrology the rising sign reveals the nature of Persona and its expression in other words of the the rising sign to a traditional astrologers is that it represents? appearance persona how use are seen in the world or how you would like to be seen esoteric astrology says well Yes Until you wake up to that higher prompting and then this higher understanding of the rising sign is really crucial you see the reason for that is that this is the sign, that’s in the east and The east is the direction of spirit, and it’s rising So it can symbolize the souls rising intention in a way, it’s your soul sign Probably more accurate though if I were to say it this way if you could live The higher qualities of your rising sign well, that’s like a gate right to the soul So if you don’t know your rising sign I encourage you to learn what it is, okay? next Esoteric astrology uses three levels of levels of ruling planets for each sign From this the spiritual dimension of the sign can be revealed Now this is an aspect that I there’s no way I could fully get into this tonight But I’ll just say this that I don’t know if you know what rulers are many curious. How many of you are Familiar really familiar with astrology, I’m just kind want to get a feel for it okay well, you know that every sign of the zodiac has a planet that rules it, which means represents it and And yet traditional astrology has a tier of rulers That are useful and correct as it pertains to the consciousness of the personality But there’s a higher tier of rulers and That those planets are often different than the traditional And it says that it is suggested that those planets hold the soulful vibration associated with that sign You see one of the big differences between traditional and esoteric is that? Traditional astrology has a more monolithic approach, but esoteric astrology takes into account That people are actually at different levels of consciousness and that that has to be included in the nature of the Interpretation two people could have exactly the same chart one is a very young soul and one is very also and yet And yet often people kind of interpreted the same, but that’s it’s far from the same And and that’s one of the beauties of esoteric astrology it takes into consideration the hierarchical dimensions of evolution itself Okay So here it is personal astrology uses only the traditional rulers These are useful that only as it pertains to the personality not the soul Okay All right a couple more Esoteric astrology considers the moon to be the major liability of a person’s chart particularly after the age of 35 I’m looking at your faces Many of you are probably in that category, I know I am too whereas traditional astrology personal astrology considers the moon is the symbol of a person’s emotional tendencies and Instinctual patterns, and that’s true. It is but Many times to the person on the path the moon Can represent instinctual patterns that can actually defeat the soul from being more effective in the life It’s because it’s as if the solely because it’s in its representing instinctual Consciousness the soul can have difficulty getting a grip on it so one of the great challenges of of Evolution is to handle the problem of the moon in your chart And the general rule of thumb is for the wherever the moon is found is that when it whatever sign It’s in and assuming you’re on the path it either means that there’s going to be too much of that energy woven into the instinctual dimension of consciousness or the Opposite not enough of it or the third possibility It’s unstable sometimes too much sometimes not enough, so it swings back and forth okay Okay All right, so we’re gonna start with Aries Now what as I go through these? I’m gonna show you the deep meaning of Aries the deeper meaning of Aries, and then I’m assigns, and then I’m going to give you a sacred mantra for each of the signs of the zodiac So when you think of Aries? Let me go back for a minute when you think of Aries the? Typical way, we think of that sign is that it’s it’s a powerful sign It’s a sign that has a lot of fire in it it’s the kind of the warrior on the March Mars as a traditional ruler Mars is the Lord or God of War right and Although that’s true But when we look at it from a deeper perspective Aries is one of the first ray signs now. I don’t know if you folks know what those seven rays are but every every Of each of the seven Ray’s every ray finds expression through three signs of the zodiac and in the case of the first ray which is called the Ray of will and power one of the signs that it finds its access point is indeed Aries and Aries is this the will to initiate the archetypes of God on behalf of humanity’s betterment You see Aries is a sign that when it’s affecting the the life of a disciple I better define my words here when I use the word disciple I Don’t mean it in the traditional way I don’t mean it in the sense of oh all of that guru and that sort of thing no what I mean is to be a disciple of your own soul To be a disciple of your own higher promptings that’s discipleship. I mean there’s also Larger understandings of discipleship, you know it is said that the greatest master You could all ever follow is often the one least followed, and that’s your own higher consciousness They own the soul within you okay, so when you hear me use the word disciple That’s what I mean, okay? Aires sees and said Aires tries to shape into human consciousness The ability to sense the new paradigms Emerging on humanity’s horizon and to be a voice in support of those new and emerging paradigms So it’s a futuristic sign. It’s a pioneering sign and It’s very strong It’s the first sign of zouk very strong because it has to be strong if you if you’re an Aries Individual who’s on the path and you sense new ideas, and you want to bring them forward You got to be strong because Humanity is is governed by inertia, and if you’re going to initiate the new It takes a lot of power to move something into the field of inertia so that’s why Aries is so strong normally unless other things in the chart Compromise that so as I go through these twelve please understand I’m talking about them in their kind of pure sense realize that a chart is very complex and there’s many many other variables that can modify things, but I Just want you to understand the fundamentals on a higher level of the signs themselves okay? Now as I said every sign of the zodiac? Has a sacred mantra that I’m going to share with you now. This is a sentence in English and it’s said to be the sole speaking in this sign and ah I’m going to show it to you here, but I always like the preface is the area one that Aries is so strong that Let’s put it this way. I’m glad you’re sitting okay, so here’s the the the sole speaking in Aries I Come forth and from the plain of mind. I rule I Come forth and from the plain of mind I rule But let me explain that because it if you can misinterpret this very easy. I’m going to embellish it for clarity I My higher consciousness I The best in me I the soul itself come forth and from the power of my mind I rule my creative expression That’s what Aries is really about it has nothing to do with ruin people it’s an insistence on doing what you must do to bring forth the new idea without distraction but it requires that you understand the the the how to use your mind right because Mars is a traditional ruler and Mars is passion Mars is it huh? Mars is the energy that rules the solar plexus And before you’re on the path, and you’re in Aries Mars is the the fuel that you use to bring forth in a the new? And by the way a Couple years ago, I learned something really interesting about Rams. I mean the real animal Did you know that in real life? They’re nearly blind? I thought well that’s telling blind charging forward without right sight without right thought and so a negative side of Aries is sort of Unnecessary disruptions in the process well until you start to live from its higher nature Because it’s higher ruler is not Mars it’s higher ruler is mercury and mercury is the messenger of the gods in Greek mythology mercury is as Hermes and So it’s the power of thought itself that you want to use to move something forward instead of using your astrology your emotions to fuel the expression you use the very power inherent in the new idea itself as You’re motivating force for getting something in the world Okay, I’m gonna (laugh) I just realized that Because this PowerPoint is being played on a different system this is supposed to be the the the glyph for the sign but apparently the computer that we’re using here doesn’t have the the font for that so I apologize for the queue here that I just noticed it now So disregard these symbols because obviously it’s not going to pick it up correctly. Okay. Let’s go to Taurus I’m curious any torian’s in here. Uh-huh okay? All right, well you know when you think of Taurus. Here you to think of you know groundedness. It’s an earth sign There’s a sense of stability. There’s a sense of dependability loyalty sometimes stubbornness, okay But kind of a persevering steadiness But here’s the higher meaning of Taurus The desire to reveal the light of divinity hidden within form You see in the ancient literature Taurus has been called the sign of the light bringer friends the light bringer But it’s not light in the way you think it has everything to do spiritually with Building as a function of Revelation You know many artists come out of Taurus Taurus is a four-three sign and the fourth ray one of the attributes of the fourth ray’s beauty It’s why Taurus even in traditional astrology, Taurus rules Gardens Taurus rules ecosystems I mean, it’s it’s often in May and May is when everything is coming to life. You can kind of understand Why Taurus is connected to? beauty, ahm But on this higher level Taurus has to do with revealing revelation We use an example just to highlight this and I think I will use an artist. It’s a good way of doing this Ahm, over here, we have an image on the wall here And this this tapestry is beautiful now when you look at a visual image like this Everything you see all of the all of the shapes all the colors the lines All of that is just a bunch of forms just a bunch of forms But when forms are rightly related to each other something comes out of that painting or that that tapestry? That we call beauty See beauty is actually something that arises through the right relationship of form It’s in relating things. Where beauty comes forward and That’s the underlying principle of Taurus It has to do with construction to reveal Now eventually the torreón artist If they are artists the torreón artist discovers something really amazing They discover that the painting they just created That painting is actually not creating the beauty Instead they realize that the beauty pre-exists the painting and that the Assembly of form is Actually, just to reveal that which already is it’s already there. It’s intuited and It’s not just artists. I have a I’ll give you an example a good friend of mine He lives in a he’s very Torian clearly on the path he’s a double Torian actually and he doesn’t have an artistic bone in his body I Think a stickman would be challenging for him to the house with you Actually be challenging for me to But but he’s a man that he works in this company In LA and he’s always he’s supervising a group of people in the department and he’s always asking himself He’s watching the flow of the work in the in the environment and he’s always asking himself What if we were to simplify this task and maybe eliminate this and maybe merge these tags we could make it all more efficiency efficient It’s the same thing because when we talk about Taurus in the assembly of form don’t confine your thinking to just physical form How you do something as a form and in his case he Arranges procedures within a company and from that the light of efficiency is revealed to others Or it’s the teacher who wants to convey ideas to a student and has to use forms called words To deliver that and If the construction of that language is done poorly It falls on deaf ears But done well. It’s an enlightened realization That’s Taurus. That’s Taurus. Taurus is also the sign most associated with the opening of the third eye You’ve heard the expression Hitting the bull’s eye. Have you not? We think that’s an archery term, but it’s actually much older. It’s a reference to the bull in the sky If you look at the old paintings of the bull in the Middle Ages It was always a single eye either a single eye or a profile But there’s this long history of the eye of the bull the AIA vision the eye of God Taurus is really about a deeper way of looking In fact the mantra for it addresses this very thing let’s take a look The soul says this I see and when the eye is opened all is illumined Here I see, okay? Okay, you folks following me. Okay, you tracking all of this okay? All right, do we have any Gemini people in here? The traditional ruler of course is Venus right the esoteric ruler it’s going to surprise you the Vulcan Vulcan remember live long and prosper Vulcan was said to be the blacksmith of the gods in mythology and Vulcan in esoteric astrology is actually believed to exist it is said to be within the orbit of mercury within eight degrees of the Sun either way and but in a third substance it hasn’t made the dense physical level yet and Vulcan would take RAW in mythology vultan would take raw matter and with power and fire and strength Shape it into something luminous and useful the form that reveals same idea Okay? All right Gemini people again Okay, some of you go like this (laughing) who was that mean. okay. All right, so so when you think of Gemini of course you think of you think of You often that they talk about two sides of the personality right two sides of the personality? But you see when you wake up in in Gemini. It’s not two sides of the personality anymore That’s not the duality it shifts from two parts of the personality to the soul and the personality There’s a red round. You might say it vertical eise’s before you’re on the path. Yeah. I got two sides of my personality But then it shifts and now it’s the higher self and the lower self and Gemini is also associated with communications You and I are doing a Gemini thing right now This camera is also Gemini the Internet’s Gemini, but when you’re on the path and waking up It’s all about vertical communications. It’s about the communications between the soul and the personality That’s actually the higher understanding of Jupiter, and I let me show you The relating of the pairs of opposites and the building of the Ant Ekron Now some of you may know what Ant Ekron is but let me explain Ant Ekron is a Sanskrit word, and it’s the it’s said to be the communication bridge that is between the soul and the personality It’s in and and yet this bridge does not exist naturally It has to be built and It’s built when three things are woven into the fabric of your life One Heartfelt service to humanity a real christ-like commitment to love and serve to study building your higher mind and three meditation Those are called the three pillars and and why this is so important is because we are told in the ancient literature that Gemini rules the construction of the anta karana Doesn’t mean that if you don’t have Gemini in your chart you can’t build it No because Gemini has a ruling planet It has a higher and lower ruling planet and that planet is someplace in your chart So in a way one thing you need to know about astrology is in a certain sense all of the signs of the zodiac Are related to you in some way shape or form because all of their representatives are in the zodiac in your chart somewhere. Okay? So it’s a very very important and the key to success when you’re on the path in Gemini is to learn to quiet the lower self In order to hear the faint whispers of the soul Because you see the soul speaks in faint intuitive whispers It’s all about getting the lower self quiet, which by the way is very difficult for Gemini Because it’s a mutable sign and the mind wants to go all over the place and that’s the great irony There’s a great irony about Gemini always think about this You know it’s like Gemini people would probably benefit most from meditation, and yet, they’re the least likely to meditate But if you can really quiet it down, it’s a fantastic sign here’s the mantra for it I See my other self and in the waning of that self I grow and glow Let me embellish it for you for clarity. This is the soul speaking in Gemini I see that busy personality down there And in the waning of it, which is the quieting of it I grow and I glow I say It’s kind of beautiful isn’t it I think anyway the next sign cancer I’m glad you’re keeping you’re keeping me on track later. This is good. Okay The ruler the traditional ruler is mercury right the esoteric ruler is Venus Venus because Venus on a higher level It’s all about learning that to think with your hearts and to feel with your mind a reverse pattern I Could really go into it Okay, let’s just it. I gotta keep my pace here cuz but but I’ll just save this really quickly Planets are living things friends planets are beings It’s not just this ball of dirt out there. It’s a being it’s alive. Just like the earth is a being It’s a god to us But air and just as the earth has a soul and a personality so too Does Venus in fact Venus is more evolved than our earth and? each of those those Planetary lives out there are their soul and personality are governed by rays So when you think of Venus? What do you normally think of what would word would come to mind normally love? What ray is love most associated with Second ray quite right Venus is second ray in its personality nature But not its sole nature the soul of Venus is actually fifth ray 5th ray, and that’s the Ray of higher mind higher mind So this is a very complex thing and I could take you down a lot of roads here But I’m just trying to give you a sense of understanding that When we think about planets and their influence we also have to think about their higher influence and their lower influence okay? Okay, so on to the next sign any Kent Syrians in here by the way Uh-huh okay a few of you nice that you decided to leave the house and come and join us today Here’s cancer Building the foundations of life through the warmth of nurturing love You see cancer is an amazing sign when you really get to the deeper part of it you know traditionally, it’s associated with it’s associated with the home and the nest and Security you know there’s a lot of truth to that all of that But let me just say that to start is that cancer is one of the most Christ filled signs of the zodiac Personally I would put cancer and Pisces as the most Christ filled although the Christ principle manifests differently between those two Signs and in cancer that Christ’s principle man it It manifests as nurturing wise supportive love and and Again, I’m talking about it in its purity without all of the other things that add or flavor and differences and stuff so in its own right It’s that way and when you’re on the path One of the big things in cancer that you have to understand is that if cancer is about the home Well, then what you really discover is you got to redefine? What the home is and The big message for cancer is this the home in the truest sense is not the four walls you live in Instead it’s important for the Cancerian To see the entirety of his or her life as if it were their home the wholeness of the life and that every department of the life career friendships relationships interests all of those are like larger rooms in this larger home that is the disciples life and Always the big question in cancer Is how well-lit are those rooms Or are any of the lightbulbs getting a bit dim because cancer in a spiritual sense without any and other influence Cancer is a is a diffused sign It’s not a goal-oriented sign It’s a sign that says Be the best you can be in every situation Make the best of you radiate through every window of every one of those larger rooms of life you see It’s an amazing sign when you rise to the occasion and the key one of the key words is the word foundation You see Signs of the zodiac there’s so much that we can say, but one of them is they they often represent certain spiritual principles and cancer one of the main spiritual principles that it Conveys is the so called principle of foundations I? Mean if you think about it If it’s the sign of the mother Mother is pretty foundational to life if it’s a sign of the home home is pretty foundational to life so on a deeper level it it’s the nature of foundation so a Cancerian disciple is somebody who should see their service to humanity to See it as a role to play as a Foundation upon which others can thrive and grow because you’re loving wisdom is a foundation to them you see let me show you the mantra I Build a lighted house, and they’re in dwell I Build a lighted house, and they’re in dwell and that’s the house of one’s life Okay So much more I could say, but I can’t got to keep my pace, so Let’s go to the next sign oh She’s good Yeah see it’s good and keep doing that because I’m You know normally, this is a two-hour session But I I’ve been told I’ve got a really compress it for time reason so but I will do these rulers traditional ruler is The moon esoteric ruler is Neptune Neptune and Neptune in the highest sense Neptune is the Christ if you want to find the Christ in your chart from a planetary spectrum aspect us perspective look to Neptune a Lot of people talk about Neptune in a negative way. You know who makes you foggy? Leads to the depression and all of that, but that’s only the lower Negative effects when it’s working through an imperfect instrument But Neptune on the higher level is pure unfettered christ-like compassion So it’s it’s it’s higher ruler okay? Next Leo Esoteric theme the will to be the authentic self and the power to convey illumination any Leo people in here Just to What’s the odds of that – okay well? When you think of Leo you usually think of somebody that is kind of out there extroverted you usually think of Leo as the You know the in traditionalist, you know there’s an old joke about Leo You know there’s an old joke the joke goes like this you can always tell a Leo, but you can’t tell them much And I have to be honest with you, I’m a Leo so I have a right to tell the joke but We are told that the Ray the first rates another first ray sign and it brings in the will in three ways Spiritually the first is the so-called will to be the will to be You see in the deepest sense friends Leo is all about finding yourself Every Leo person should be asking the question Who am I Who am I Who am I and of course? That’s a working hypothesis. I mean if you were to be asked that question ten years ago You’d probably answer it a bit different than you would now you see and So so one of the big interesting things about Leo is that you know, it’s symbolized by the lion right the lion But here’s the big surprise. There’s actually two lions in Leo and not one two lions Though the traditional lion is the lion as the self as personality? Where the higher the other line is the self as soul with a capital S both ourselfs Both are centers of identity The lower lion You know that’s the that’s the the lion that most astrologers will attend to You know the you know the when that when the lower lion loves the limelight What’s really going on there? That’s really the personality. That’s saying to itself Hey, this must be Who I am because this is what everybody loves But the higher lion That lion that self doesn’t need accolades from the environment to validate itself The higher line is all about standing in one’s authenticity Without inflation, which would be egoism or deflation which is diminished self-esteem? It’s to stand in what is what is? in fact the mantra for it Is Here . I am that and that am I? It’s a shortest of the twelve shortened to the point, but let me embellish it for you I am that quiet point of beingness deep within and that’s who I am But as I said it brings the the will energy in three ways The second way is the so called will to lead Leo is one of the leadership signs Many Leo’s are natural leaders not all by the way, so we’re making broad generalizations but many are good leaders naturally, and the other is the so-called will to alumina the will to illumine You see leo is also one of the teaching science friends one of the teaching signs Quiz question what object in the sky rules Leo the Sun well so it may have something to do with bringing light to things you say and To now address what I know she’s going to ask me Leo is one of the signs there’s only a couple of them like this Where the ruler is the same on the higher and the lower it is also the Sun it is also the Sun Okay You know think about it the Sun is the symbol is the center of our solar system It’s the centralizing force for the life of our solar logos you know the whole solar system is also an entity in its totality and Even though we look at the earth and say that’s a god the solar logos is nature two planets are those are chakras Within it so our planet is a chakra within the larger entity But that Solar logos that Sun Is the center power for the whole solar system and when we say to ourselves? I want to find myself What I’m really saying is I want to find my center It kind of makes sense that the Sun would be the symbol of it Okay Let’s go on to Virgo Before I do when you think of Virgo you usually think of things like oh wait how many virgos are in here beep beep recites Okay, we got a few virgos So usually virgos associated with menisci meticulous detail attention to detail crossing the t’s diving the eyes hard work work before play sometimes perfectionistic tendencies Alright There’s truth to all of that to some extent, but here’s the higher meaning of it, and then I’m gonna explain it this one’s kind of harder to explain, but here it is the Gestation of the Christ principle within the womb of substance Let me explain in this philosophy, it’s understood that who you really are is the soul that’s your real self and that Your soul or I should say an aspect of your soul is incarnate into three layers of intelligent substance the physical dimension the emotional dimension and the mental dimension now the consciousness of those three layers is What we call personality? Some people might call it ego, okay Now when you’re born in Virgo or you have it as your rising sign? It’s important to see your whole personality as If it were a womb and That the soul Which is the Christ in you is? in gestation within that womb and The more that womb can be well tended to cared for and purify The more likely the soul can birth itself through that form in service to humanity is upliftment You see so Virgo in the deep spiritual. Sense is the great sign of purification? It has everything to do with purifying the form dimension of life So that a higher and wiser part of you is more effectively being it can be expressed through that form You’re with me still I Mean even the word the Virgo comes from the root word virgin to be pure to be pure Here’s the mantra for it This this one by the way is the most poetic of the twelve I Am the mother and the child I God I matter am This was going to take some explanation And you know when I when I work with this I always I Always find that the one thing about talking about Virgo is that I? Have to take you to cosmos for a minute to get you to get this okay So bear with me as I take you to the big picture one of the most amazing important concepts in the esoteric philosophy and theory is that In the ultimate ultimate ultimate sense There’s only one thing one existence one beingness Some people call it God other people call it Brahma other people call it universal intelligence Often we might call it Parabrahman or often simply the one life Now in the esoteric philosophy they there’s a view that’s quite different than the Abrahamic theologies of Christianity Islam and Judaism when it comes to the sort the question of the creator and that which is creative the general bias of the Western Theologies is that there’s a god out there, and there’s creation so it’s God in creation, but in esotericism that’s not the way It’s understood. It’s not understood as God and creation. It’s understood as God as creation God as creation and God as creation is a whole different paradigm For understanding you and your relationship to the greater life You see Your as your array your a beam of light from that one life And in a way the whole path is to realize and and prove it that You are the divinity you seek You are the divinity you seek so that’s a context now for me to explain this mantra, okay? Now as that one life In Carnot’s the one becoming the many We are given to understand that it first becomes the two before it comes and becomes the many and It you could to make it simple one side is the cosmic father and the others the cosmic mother In Hinduism the cosmic father is called, Purusha, and the cosmic mother is called moola Prakriti But what’s so interesting is that it is believed that those two streams each carry? different attributes of the one life so for instance the cosmic father Holds the deep sense of purpose and will of the one life while the cosmic mother holds the vibration of the Nate the innate intelligence the knowingness of the one life I Kind of have a joke sometimes when I do a whole workshop on cosmology that the joke is you know the cosmic father No, sorry, yeah Yeah, the cosmic father knows what to do, but doesn’t know how to do it the cosmic mother knows how to do it But doesn’t know what to do okay, and and The when we talk about the mother That cosmic mother is interesting because all the planes of consciousness are her all of them every plane of consciousness is made up of Intelligent substance and the inherent intelligence in that substance is her if I cut my hand It heals itself. I didn’t do a thing it heals itself. That’s an intelligence That’s her if I have an emotion it could be a base emotion, or it could be a lofty emotion, but I’m experiencing the intelligence of emotional substances within my emotional body that’s her if I have a thought I’m Experiencing the Assembly of mental substance and the product of that assembly is the thought itself that’s her Wisdom that’s her intuition. That’s her That’s how pervasive the cosmic mother is okay now back to the mantra, so I am the mother and the child The Virgo individual It’s really important that they have this sense of reverence for their form nature mental emotional and physical The very thing that is the personality is made up of three types of intelligence the physical the emotional mental and there’s a kind of honoring and Reverence to it recognizing that in its essence it too is sacred And it’s part of the cosmic mother so there’s a sense of recognizing honoring and somewhat Identifying with the cosmic mother, but also the child now. What’s the child the soul? the Christ in you I Am the mother and the child I God meaning either soul I matter am So virgo has everything to do with honoring the sacredness of your own duality The sacredness of your form nature mental emotional and physical and the sacredness of that higher part of you that wants to find Expression through that form and through the purification of the one the other can come forth unencumbered in service to human betterment That’s forgo Probably a little deeper than you read in the newspaper I suspect And if and from a perm a service perspective it means that the Virgo individual some should see themselves as an agent of good form to try to support good form that supports More sacredness of life coming through that form in other people for instance not just yourself It’s not surprising the Virgo even mainstream is the sign most associated with the healing profession all healing whether it’s mainstream medicine or alternative Is Virgo I mean think about it? What does a doctor want to do? They want to help you get the form right so that you can more joyously live it best through that form Okay Libra Rulers Mercury is a traditional ruler And believe it or not the moon is the esoteric ruler and I’m a little cautious here because I Will just say this that it is said that the moon is veiling another planet, and that’s Vulcan again Vulcan again, so we saw a Vulcan as a sacred influence in Taurus, which had to do with Creating good form in order to reveal something now we see Vulcan again working through a higher level of the moon to create good form in support of purification Okay Okay, any libras in here kind of curious Okay, just a couple okay So when you think of Libra you usually think of you know balance harmony It’s been a connected to justice and partnership by the way This with it’s the great sign of relationship, but on a higher level, let’s look at it The harmonization of duality through the establishment of right relationship You see so often when we talk about relationship In a Libra context. We’re often thinking about is interpersonal but actually that’s just a small part of it you see Libra is all about the principle of relationship and the principle of relationship is a much bigger thing than just interpersonal relationship because you see the Leibman individual on the path Should be look looking out at their lives and saying What is the right relationship that I should have with everything I interface with What is the right relationship with my career? What is the right relationship to have with my friendships with my interests? with my partner with mother nature With a chair. I’m sitting on You know think about it. Everything is a relational question from a certain point of view there’s you the perceiver and there’s that which you perceive and Libra is an energetic influence of living influence in cosmos in the zodiac that tries to help an individual Perceive Right fit? What is the right fit to have here okay? And now there’s two levels of a2 that I always like to share there’s that part of it And then there’s another part that has to do with right relationship within oneself So for instance what is the right relationship between the masculine and feminine energies? What is the right relationship between happiness and sadness? between the mind and the heart between action and inaction between the soul and the personality These are deep profound important questions about human consciousness itself So Libra has to a lot to do with Both the question of right relationship externally and right relationship internally okay, and here’s its mantra I Choose the way that leads between the two great lines of force You see Libra is that the scales and The middle of the scales of the fulcrum point and The two great lines of forces any duality the Libra individual is facing Whether it’s the duality of the heart and the head whether there’s the duality of your personal life in your spiritual life Whether it whatever duality you’re faced with with a question Libra says I choose the way the leads between the two great lines of force It’s not surprising therefore that Libra is one of the signs that rules the religion of Buddhism Two signs of the zodiac rule the religion of Buddhism one is and the others Libra You know Taurus, you know the Buddha was born in Taurus He it was actually enlightened and Taurus, and he even died in Taurus And the most sacred full moon is the torreón full moon? which is called the waist sack moon a familiar with that that’s always the Tori and full moon and and and Taurus on a lower level And a traditional level is about desire really Taurus is about acquisition money comfort comfort But on a higher level, it’s it’s about transformation of desire Leading to act of a spiritual aspiration Which then in turn leads to illumine living, but what the Buddhist said was he said all suffering is due to desire That’s what he said and then he said the solution to all suffering in the world and The way to enlightenment is to quote walk the noble middle path you’ve heard this the noble middle path Libra I choose the way that leaves between the two great lines of force you see you can see the connection Okay Scorpio Where are they aha Oh? Rulers rulers oh, I thought you were saying you’re a Scorpio now. Okay, so the rulers okay, okay? this is gonna be a tricky one to share with you the tradition of Venus right the esoteric or the higher is Uranus and It’s kind of surprising unless you really understand why? The reason is this and without getting too deep into this When the soul evolves over the vastness of time and incarnate son drudes of times Before you wake up it is said that your soul is involute into form in the substance meaning It’s like you’re getting deeper into materiality and identification with form and I Like to I have this strange image that I always picture of it’s like I think of a bottle of wine and a cork And a corkscrew your incarnated and your penetrating into form okay and Then what happens is in some incarnation It is said that the individual will have become a strong ego and have done it all that would have say ciated all things would have experienced wealth would have would have Achieved every kind of ego gratification thing possible and yet when they get to that point There’s there’s still this realization Something’s still missing And what happens is often that person will begin to realize that there’s a whole inner dimension of life a whole inner universe to explore and they begin to awaken more to a spiritual life and they begin to do what is called in the ancient literature the reversal of the wheel and They begin to incarnate in the other direction because you’re going clockwise Before you wake up you’re going counterclockwise through the zodiac over many many incarnations When you’re on the path, it’s like the corkscrew is coming back out the way it came in okay, and that turning point is Libra and Uranus is the planet that creates radical reorientation many of you know this right? So in that light it makes a lot of sense that Uranus would be the higher ruler of it, okay? Look if you’re Libra that doesn’t mean that this is the incarnation you’re reversing the wheel you may have done it several incarnations Ago, but you will revisit Libra. We all do Many times, but if it is the time of your incarnation journey where you are reversing the wheel You’re going to have Libra really strong in the chart Okay, okay, all right um Scorpio Scorpio Scorpio All right, here’s here’s Scorpio and the higher sense Discipleship that is demonstrated through the transformation of the shadow Scorpio friends is called in the ancient literature. It’s called the sign of the test the sign of the test But it’s also called the sign of discipleship Because it’s in Scorpio where the disciple has to prove his or her fitness to serve the greater life Because in the spiritual community out there Talk is cheap. Talk is cheap You got to prove yourself you got to do the hard work, and you got to prove yourself every one of us and What I’m about to share with you is so important to all of you Because even though Scorpio is the sign of the test because it’s the sign of the test it’s also called the sign of discipleship that’s another title for it and Everybody who’s on the path everybody who is awakened to their own duality. Everybody who’s striving to lift in themselves to that higher note Realizes that they have to do the hard work of transforming the lower To do it every one every one of you if you’re spiritually oriented you’re being ruled by the Scorpio from a certain perspective Now if you’re on the path, and you have it strong in the chart It’s an accented theme, but if it’s really about all of us, okay? So the natural question though is what’s the nature of the test? Now Life is testing but look that’s going to be true with anybody everybody has Tests of life the real test is to see how willing you are to look deep inside yourself To find the thing you hope you won’t find, but must in Other words the search for the shadow deep within the search for the shadow And Redemption of the shadow that’s why Scorpio is the sign most associated with psychology It rules the whole department of psychology because they no way that’s what a therapist does you know a psychotherapist They’re looking deep and I used to be a psychology teacher many years ago at a university in, California And we used to talk about with students back in those days This is a long time ago, but we used to talk about the old analogy of the onion. You know what’s behind that layer What’s behind that it was behind that but when you’re in the path and you’re scorpion? It means you should be beat you should be the therapist and the client at the same time You see pull them back your own layers. What’s going on and I’d like to I’d like to quickly share with you a very meaningful story That may help you understand this you know and I’m this is a story that it goes back about probably about 2,500 years ago, maybe 3,000 years ago and It’s a story in Greek mythology having to do with Hercules Hercules Now in Greek mythology Hercules was a hero figure and There’s this ancient story about Hercules had to go through 12 tests to prove himself But one of those tests well Sorry what we realize is that when we really ant look at that that journey of these these 12 Tests we realize it’s actually a metaphor for the journey of the soul around the 12 signs of the zodiac Amazing and it’s beautiful, and there’s there’s what what I do. I want to share with you the Scorpio labor, okay? Now the way that labor goes is this Hercules he symbolizes the striving disciples, so that’s all of us you and me you’re you’re the striving disciple He’s approached by the presiding one now the presiding one is just a reference to the inner master and he’s been told to go out into this land where there’s this horrible dragon that lives and this dragon has nine heads and each head breathes fire and It’s called the nine headed Hydra, and he’s been told to go find it and slay it Okay Well that dragon is a metaphor for the shadow inside and Every head of that dragon is said to be a facet of the shadow Maybe one head is pride Maybe another envy maybe another fear And I was a little bit confused about this because I always think how did they get nine I don’t know I don’t I sometimes I wonder if nine hundreds more accurate for most of us, but okay. We’ll go with a nine So off he goes with courage to find this dragon which is introspection Looking inside and the story goes that first. He can’t find him. He’s looking everywhere. He cannot find it and Then he starts to smell something putrid Anything’s to himself maybe I better follow my nose, so he follows this smell for seven miles and he comes to this disgusting swamp And he thinks to himself that that dragon lives around here And he looks across the pond and he sees a cave on the other side of the pond And he peers into the cave, and he sees the rump of the dragon And he says to himself aha I found the enemy But now I’ve got to wake it up because I’ve been told I have to slay it So he yells at the dragon But it doesn’t wake up So then he takes a log and he throws this log, and he hits it, but still it doesn’t wake up And then he takes a boulder this is rickielee so you can do that. He throws this Boulder and hits it And still it doesn’t wake up So I begin to think this is a threat. This is a problem? Nonsense. Maybe it’s just some feel silly fable silly favor from long ago. I’m how did he run leave him? But then he remembers that the presiding one gave him a special weapon, maybe he should use that first and It was a bow with a quiver of arrows So he loads up one of the arrows aims and fires and hits the dragon and boom it wakes up And it’s furious and it pivots right around and if the dragon could speak It would say Who dared disturb my sleep? So I’ve got to stop right there for a moment because that is such a critical part of the story Because you see in the mythology of it those arrows have a name they’re called the arrows of aspiration and that’s crucial because What it means friends is this? It is only when we truly aspire To live according to our higher promptings that that’s what wakes up the dragon in any of us you Know there’s something about the more you strive to that higher wiser part of yourself The more you become aware of everything inside you that seems to prevent you from getting there And that’s the dragon or the Christian might call it the devil within and Or Karl Yune the psychologists would call it the shadow And in esotericism it’s called the dweller on the threshold So for the masses of people out there Sleeping dragons It’s running the show but for the disciple should be wide awake You know I teach this philosophy in 9 countries around the world I have a lot of students, and I tell everybody I said look if you don’t see your dragon. There’s something wrong I mean if you’re really really striving to live from your higher nature You should be aware of the things inside you that get in the way You see So just quickly I’ll tell you how the story ends with Hercules on this one This dragon comes frosting across the pond to attack him and one of the heads breathing fire comes down to get him and he takes Out a sword and he cuts off the head But then to his surprise to sprout where one was and he goes oh shit or perhaps the Greek equivalent of oh shit, okay, and Then another head comes down cut sprout cut sprout cut sprout so this is getting bigger and bigger and stronger and stronger And he’s falling back in dismay and fatigue. He’s never lost a battle before and he’s losing big time here Well, what does that mean to any of us it means that you can’t deal with your dragon in conventional ways none of us can You can’t repress it You can’t cut it out of you You can’t deny it Nor can you project it. You know what projection is I see it out there because I can’t see it in myself But often a person will go through all of those things that doesn’t work Sometimes makes it much worse So then what happens is he as he’s falling back in dismay. He suddenly remembers something He remembers that when he left on the journey long ago the presiding when leaned over and whispered a clue in his ear, and he had forgotten until that moment and the clue was this We arise by kneeling We gain by yielding that was the clue and At that moment he realized his mistake And he drops his armaments, and he kneels in supplication to this hideous creature which remembers just a part of himself but in the kneeling and the yielding of flashing intuition crossed his mind that he’d never had before and That was to reach down under the Hydra into the mud and with his mighty strength lifted out of its rootedness and matter and hold it high into the sunshine and that’s what he did and to his surprise the whole thing began to shrivel up and die Right in his hand In that story the Sun the light of the Sun is symbolic of the light of the soul itself It’s all about learning that that the more you can lift your Consciousness to a higher place deep inside you the more the soul itself Can begin to repattern? the the the dragon’s patterns of consciousness and transform it I Remember many years ago one of the country’s IT as New Zealand maybe 15 years ago I created a whole meditation for that group based upon identification of a dragon had you want to work on and how to bring it in deep into meditation and have your higher consciousness over time slowly reap a turning it and Transforming it. That’s why by the way. This is the great sign of transformation Transformation of the shadow here’s the here’s the mantra Warrior I am and from the battle I emerge triumphant But it’s a warrior over your lower nature. It’s the warrior over your shadow issue Scorpio is a tough sign friends. It’s a tough sign But it’s also the sign of the fast track you evolve faster through Scorpio than any other sign. It’s just a bit more painful Okay ruling planet traditional ruler is Pluto Esoteric well the highest ruler I’m going to use the highest ruler here for a reason is actually mercury again In that case the story itself has it in the case of when when Hercules was trying to Kill it with the sword That’s Mars and Pluto When he gave up the sword of Mars and Pluto What happened he had a flashing intuition into his mind. That’s mercury. You see even in the story we see the transition from Mars and Pluto to mercury okay? Sagittarius anybody in here, okay. We’ve got some Sagittarius all right Here it is the quest for meaning and the aspiration to strive toward one’s vision Look Sagittarius is an interesting sign it really is you know it’s the arch right who’s shooting the arrows and What’s so interesting about Sagittarius is that? By the way, those arrows are the same the arrows of aspiration in the story of Scorpio I’m that labour of Hercules is actually about how your shadow is revealed because your aspiring but in Sagittarius itself It’s literally about aspiration. It’s literally about vision Sagittarius is all of always spiritually about visioning of aspiring toward aiming at but it’s a sign that You know it’s it’s in traditional astrology even it’s said to rule philosophy and religion and travel on a more mundane Level but on a higher level of course. It’s the travels of the mind and There’s a strong curiosity factor in Sagittarius I Think what else I’d like to say is this about Sagittarius Sagittarius is assigned where the key to success is to have a steady aim Because one of the great challenges of Sagittarius is that because the curiosity factor is so strong? many Sagittarians Instead of aiming right at their vision they aim like this Shooting arrows all over the place and So many Sagittarians if they’re not careful. They never get to their vision because they are victimized by unbridled curiosity In some of the ancient literature a great master once said this the Sagittarian disciple must learn to become the one pointer disciple one pointed going right to the vision Not to the right of it not to the left of it But right to the vision and in a way you become the arrow itself It’s as if the wholeness of the life is impassioned toward a singular vision in service to humanity and temple of course the vision has to be that Whatever your spiritual purpose is if it’s not about upliftment of something beyond yourself, then it’s not soulful. That’s personality base One pointed one pointed Okay Now it too has a sacred mantra, let me show you that I See the goal I reached the goal, and then I see another Too many Sagittarians modify it I see the goal, but hey look what just crossed my path. I think I’ll check it out first Steady as she goes daddy issue your stead of the end, okay? Okay And when you when the Sagittarian can steady the aim and really really commit themselves with one pointed focus they can move mountains Okay All right I’m picking up the pace a little bit the next cycle ruler traditional ruler is Jupiter But the esoteric ruler this will really surprise you is the earth itself Which is an amazing thing as traditional astrology doesn’t even use the earth, and I think wow what an oversight, huh? What an oversight the earth is a living entity? Why wouldn’t it have some kind of rulership relationship? but what that really means is that when you’re really going to live a Spiritual life in Sagittarius and aim to the vision. It means you have to literally Remain grounded enough and really kind of walk the talk in a true way on earth in realness You know these three signs are really important the three in a row Scorpio Sagittarius Capricorn Scorpio is called the Valley experience where you have to go into the desert and deal with the shadow That is said that you rise up out of the the valley and you hit the plains and the plains of Scorpio oh, sorry is Sagittarius and Sagittarius and You have to walk Straight toward the vision not like this, but right like that arrow That’s why by the way Sagittarius is said to be the astrological energy that rules the path it rules the path and take you right to the mountain and that becomes the mount of in of initiation actually so you get the valley the plains and the mountain Those three together are just crucial in it your understanding of your journey And you’ll get clarity more when I talk about Capricorn in a moment, so that’s the ruler of it, okay? Okay Everybody’s still with me. I know it’s kind of deep, but hang in there hang in there, so where are the Capricorn ian’s in here Okay, so you know the thing about Capricorn is that? It gets a bad rap out there Really, I mean really Usually people think about Capricornia all those greedy businessman. You know there’s filled with ambition. Yeah, you know, but you know Capricorn that symbol is the mountain and the goat climbing the mountain And the mountain itself is one of the most important symbols in there because you see the mountain symbolizes hierarchies hierarchies and That’s why in traditional astrology It is said that Capricorn rules all hierarchical structures of power within society It rules the business world because it’s hierarchical it rules government because it’s hierarchical it rules the military because it’s hierarchical But it’s assumption or the attitude is that you know it results in and a lot of personality ego driven stuff it’s called the sign of ambition and Indeed the mountain in Capricorn has that it’s been sometimes called the Mount of ambition But here’s the big secret friends the traditional astrology doesn’t know there’s actually two mountains in Capricorn not one and the other mountain is the mountain that is you attend to if you’re on the path in Capricorn and that mountain the climbing of it has a different set of rules and It’s called the mount of spirit. It’s also called the mount of consciousness All of us in a way are climbing an inner mountain we’re trying to lift ourselves to a higher wiser perch Where we have a broader more wise more Inclusive view we’re climbing an inner mountain the evolution when we say we raise our consciousness we might be saying we’re lifting our consciousness to a higher place on this mountain and Very quickly I’d like to give you a quick kind of analogy of how to Understand it from the from the climbing of a real mountain To see this inner mountain is the high point the top of that inner mountain represents the high point of consciousness that a cushion-cut person could reach and hold and The and so kind of keep that in mind And I’m just going to very briefly share with you the idea of climbing a mountain and something to think about Realizing I’m using it as a metaphor for the inner mountain so for instance one of the big lessons that Capricornia and disciple learns is this That when you climb a real mountain And I realize I’m in Illinois there doesn’t seem to be many I’m from Oregon. There’s a bunch of them But not here apparently ok so when when when you climb a real mountain the lower levels of the mountain is where it’s easiest That’s where it’s not as steep. That’s where the meadows are. That’s where the babbling brooks are and the butterflies but Then as later it gets steeper So one of the big lessons you learned in Capricorn is you discover that the beginning of the spiritual path is the easiest? But then it gets tougher as you go Saturn is the traditional ruler and it’s the esoteric ruler so we got that handled. It’s one of those signs that it’s both ok Another lesson you learn in Capricorn is this that Capricorn to really succeed spiritually It’s important that you you realize that a short step in the correct direction Of your evolution is wiser than a big step that might be slightly off course Capricorn is a slow methodical Step-by-step process a goat is a sure-footed animal and so must be the disciple in kapor and There’s wisdom behind it. You know something when you climb a real mountain sometimes you climb up into a fog bank And now you can’t even see where you’re going That’s kind of like the past sometimes. You know sometimes you really think I think I know my purpose This is my purpose and then other times you say well geez I thought I knew but now it’s not clear I’m not sure what if there’s a switchback right in front of me is this idea that slow cautious movement Capricorn people more than any other type, but this is actually true for everybody in the path It’s in the last third of the life where the disciples should make his or her finest contribution in terms of human betterment Even though the world says you’re in your prime in your 30s and 40s that’s only from a personality point of view From the souls point of view it’s the last third of the life And that’s very true with Capricorn, and it’s generally true with anybody on the path Now on the Mount of Capricorn when a person begins the transition if they’re serious about their development So we’re talking about a serious discipline. It’s a disciplined approach When you have that person they get to the they’re getting close to entering the last third of the life In astrology we mark that as the transition the second Saturn Return Usually it’s right Right around 58 to 60 issue right in there. Okay? You move into part three of a three-part act and It is a way of understanding it is on the Mount of Capricorn at that point. There’s what is called the plateau and the plateau Is a pause point and two things happen on the plateau first? There’s a Looking back and a recollection of the things you Had the hard work that it’s been to develop yourself and get here But there’s also a looking up and are recognizing that the top of the mountain is so close it’s almost as if you could touch it meaning you feel so close to coming into the fullness of your higher consciousness and So that top of the mountain is it seems like you’re almost there, but a stark revelation happens at that point Because you realize that though now the climb and the development is going to be the shortest it will also be the steepest So a very difficult decision is made on the plateau on the Mount of Capricorn you Realize that the only way you can continue the journey upward from here. Is that you have to drop? the excess dross of life whatever is weighing you down and People have a lot of different kinds of dross some people have Relationship dross some people have financial dress some people have obligatory dross whatever it is in the ancient literature We’re told that the cap recording disciple to make it to the very top He or she must free themselves from the binds that limit the life and If they do if that goat continues to climb and and really does get to the top we’re told in mythology that that goat is transformed into a unicorn and the Symbolism is beautiful – horns one horn is said to be the horn of the soul the others the horn of the Personality and now they’re fused as one horn of loving will thrusted to heaven the triumphant unicorn at the top of the Mount of Capricorn and In mythology a unicorn was said to be a symbol of perfection a symbol of spiritual enlightenment a symbol of Christ’s Consciousness and in a way when we’re talking about getting to the top of the mountain You’re kind of fully coming into your sole nature Spiritual initiation and the will to achieve on behalf of the soul’s purpose is the main theme my apologies I should have showed you this earlier spiritual initiation because Capricorn rules all initiations all Initiations at the top of the mountain whatever by the way every life you get a taller mountain, okay? alright, so Having having that in mind and I want to make sure that you if you’re writing notes you get this Here is the mantra that I want you to see Because it’s at the top of the mountain where the mantra Merck Capricorn is most relevant although it does have relevance on the way up Lost mi in light supernal Yet on that light Turn my back It’s very enigmatic But what it’s trying to say is this the word supernal is a word you don’t hear too often But it means divine like the light of God is said to be super light But the light of your own soul is also called Supernal light and now you’re at the top of the mountain and you feel like you’re really living the fullness of your higher consciousness It’s a good lost. It’s I just I’m I’m there I don’t feel like I have to strive to become something higher than I’m at this is my High-water mark and all I want to do is merge into the all But then something interesting happens we’re told that the discipled while lost in light supernal starts to hear something and when listening closer realizes that it’s a cry and When listening even closer? realizes, it’s a cry coming from the bottom of the mountain and It’s the cry of suffering humanity So what happens is the disciple at the top of the mountain will eventually do what is called the pivot on the pedestal? and we’ll make a hundred and eighty degree pivot and turn and commit to carrying the light of love and the light of wisdom down the mountain in the culture in the civilization and make a practical uplifting contribution to the betterment of something You see Capricorn is one of the signs. That’s trying to cultivate what we call the practical mystic The capacity to inwardly reach for the stars and keep your feet on the ground you. See you are the mountain Friends the high point of the mountain the top of the mountain simply represents the high point of consciousness that you can reach and hold and The bottom of the mountain is the the world of practical service? Lost a Mayan light supernal yet on that light I turn my back Martin Luther King was Capricorn And he said I’ve been to the mountaintop. He knew he knew it Okay, I’m running out of time. I’m already. I got to pick up the pace. I got two signs to go Ready with the next. Oh you got this you got the rulers okay? The next sign is a chorus Aquarius, right? Here’s the theme for Aquarius the giver of life through a recognition of the unity underlying diversity Aquarius is a sign that has everything to do with Unconventional thinking it has a lot to do with thinking something from outside the box so to speak Aquarius has everything to do with being willing to stand on the fringe Because you see Aquarius is the other sign of the zodiac That has to do with sensing the new paradigms on humanity’s horizon and to be a voice in support of those new and emerging Paradigms remember Aquarius, sorry Aries was the other one that was very much. I see the new paradigm Aquarius and Aries are the visionary pioneer energies however they tend to do something different with it Aquarius says I See the new vision And I want to bring it out to the world and I’m gonna find people to collaborate with To do it where arey says I see the vision and like it and I’m gonna bring it forward even if it’s by myself Both of them are powerful and both of them, but one’s more group oriented And one says I’m gonna do this by myself if I have to Aquarius is also the sign that helps condition your consciousness with a capacity to see the oneness of all things the oneness of humanity But it does it by Recognizing that underlying that unity is diversity in other words Aquarius is amazing it basically helps you see humanity’s oneness through diversity The other signs can help you see oneness that it’s often through sameness not Aquarius through different So it’s a very very progressive sign and it’s the sign of the future and All of us in a certain sense are very much trying to live Aquarion lives ways. We’re not fully into the Age of Aquarius We’re in a big overlap period it’s about 200 years. We won’t be fully in Aquarius without any Pisces at all till the Year 2117 So we’re in the big conflict We have two signs of the zodiac that are overlapping in shaping the collective consciousness of humanity Which is the aren’t one of the underlying reasons? Why there’s such a crisis in the world today in great polarizations? There’s a few other reasons, but I can’t get into it right now Let’s not go down that road, okay? Here’s the mantra –m water of life am I poured forth for thirsty men Water of life am I It’s not waters of emotion the water barrier. He’s not airing water as an emotion. It’s called the waters of life Aquarius is a great life-giving sign It’s also the sign of universality It is the hope of the future because where humanity is right now. We’re trying to figure out as a humanity how to be one That’s what’s struggling now the big crisis in the world underlying it all is the struggle to figure out How do we live as one and because of the complexities of society today? We could only do that? through an honoring of diversity how else could it be done and here the very sign that represents it is meeting us at the same time That that’s what we need and that’s not an accident That’s the synchronization between the cosmos and the evolution of the planet and the earth so Just realize that that’s this is important for all of us all of us, okay? I got to pick up the pace one more time to go The ruler is the traditional ruler is Uranus and the Esoteric ruler is Jupiter Jupiter Thank goodness Wow, what a great planet to have is a spiritual ruler okay Pisces Pisces the power to save through the demonstration of sacrificial love Any Piscean people in here Oh? quite a few okay, well Pisces is a is one of the Christ’s signs as I said very very Christ oriented and Usually people who are on the path who were in Pisces. They go one of two ways they either go the way of of Creativity because it’s a very creative sign because it facilitates Sensing the subtle it facilitates the imaginative faculty you know that’s why it’s even traditionally associated with things like dreams intuition psychism those sorts of things mystical yearning But many people go the other way more I think go the other way the way of sacrificial love Pisces is the sign that often will shape human consciousness with a sensitivity to where there’s real suffering in the world Where there’s a sense of hopelessness and helplessness and despair? It’s a sign that it has it’s got a couple other names. It’s been called the sign that has the deepest downward reach Meaning the capacity to really really bring love into difficult places it it can attend to the underbelly of society It’s also called the sign of the saving force There’s a bit of a rescue energy with Pisces. That’s why Pisces even a traditional astrology rules things like Social Work So Pisces is a very very important sign even though We’re going out of the Piscean Age the truth is the best of Pisces better be carried into the Aquarian age err. We’re in trouble So Pisces is is so much about Bringing love into difficult places and being a transformer because there’s a recognition that we’re all one But there’s also a recognition that people are falling through the cracks because of the imperfections of human culture and civilization And yet we’re all one The we all have to move through the door of initiation together The last weary pilgrim must come home And this particular group of people are uniquely framing their consciousness in a way that can attend to those Who are falling through the cracks? Here’s the the mantra I Leave the father’s home and turning back. I save I leave the father’s home and Turning back. I say really quickly. I’ll just clarify what that means Remember earlier when I talked about I was in Virgo and I told you about the cosmic father in the cosmic mother remember I told her the cosmic father was all about will Well, so is your soul your soul of your causal body has – it has an a father energy at its core And it has a mother energy of loving intelligence Now Piscean people when they go inside themselves they’re really comfortable With finding the mother they really sense that loving natural intuitive Intelligence and and that’s what causes them to serve But that’s also what causes them to be victimized by their own hearts That’s the downside of Pisces many Piscean people you know they always want to give a hand and everybody demands the NARM You know as the it’s a social worker who burns out because there’s a think thankless job Many Piscean people They’re people that often will become victimized by their hearts, and they are people that are that need to find more of the will energy in them the will the power the Father in them and What I like to do is always when I meet a Piscean when I do private one-on-one work. I always tell the Piscean look it’s important to get into a deeper relationship with the father because you got the mother thing down and The father is deep inside you, but you don’t see it So I always give them a clue of where to find the father deep inside And I always say look if you want to find the father deep inside. He’s he’s hidden behind the mother inside if instead of Instead of feeling that just that loving connection to Christ and love that the Piscean person is so naturally able to do Push deeper go deeper if you go deep enough You will come to a point Where you will feel? or find a place of focused in movable will and That’s dad and Then from that place outward turn and then capture the love That’s come, so naturally and move into the world of service as the saving force But now with both the father and the mother because you see the mother is fantastic for creating unity for healing for mending wounds for conveying wisdom But it’s terrible when it comes to defining boundaries knowing right direction and saying no, it’s terrible at that Because that’s the role of the father energy in you that’s the funk one of the functions of the father in each of us Define boundaries define right purpose and direction and know how to say no So in closing, I’ll say this to the Piscean. It’s like we’re all sailboats and Love is the wind that fills the sails but the father must control the rudder and Many Piscean people have wind filled sails, but a rudderless You start getting the father energy in you you go deeper to where there’s a profound sense of will you get acquainted to the Father and then you carry both into the world and you truly become a servant on behalf of the interim and the work of the Christ I Took this thing later than I was supposed to the ruler is the traditional ruler is Neptune the esoteric ruler is Pluto in Pluto the reason for Pluto is the esoteric ruler You saw Pluto in the sign of Scorpio and Pluto is called the dredger Pluto is the planet that takes you down to find your shadow in Scorpio and helps you see it And it says hey, you might want to take a look at this Pluto in Pisces is the shadow of society It’s it’s it’s bringing up the shadow of society. The underbelly of society and service to dealing with that shadow Okay You originally said there, are you originally said there’s three? Rulers you gave us one. What what did the other two singers at night? There’s another tier above it that I didn’t get into it’s called the hierarchical levels of rulers and that pertains to people that have reached what we call initiate consciousness and Mastership, so it has nothing to do with you, and I yet but some incarnation. They will okay So what happens when you have the same sign as Sun Sign and rising sign Okay, well, there’s a that Everybody heard the question Okay There’s a plus and a minus to that The plus is that the rising sign can often represent the souls deeper intention as I said and the birth sign Can often represent the personality nature that it needs to express through now when they’re the same sign It the good news is that means that there’s a natural? relationship a chiral energetic affinity between the two The downside to that is that it’s harder to distinguish one from the other if they’re different signs It’s sometimes clearer to recognize, which is the soul note and which is the more day-to-day consciousness note? So there’s a plus and a minus you know Audience 1: At the beginning you said something about the rising sign Speaker: yes, Audience: and it’s important in in relation not in relationship to but As opposed to the birth sign right Does that mean? That all of this that we talked about about the birth sign It has less of an influence than the rising sign okay Yeah, let me try to I’m gonna make it a simple little model for you to think about okay Let’s say that your birth sign I’ll make this up, let’s say your birth sign is Virgo okay now there’s Day-to-day regular Virgo the usual understanding more personality based Virgo, and then there’s the higher Virgo I said okay now let’s say that your rising sign is Sagittarius Okay, and that there’s this higher Sanitarian quality that I said was very connected to your soul’s purpose if your Virgo and Your day-to-day Virgo consciousness is there it means that to lift yourself from the lower Virgo to the higher Virgo? Requires that you engage the higher rising sign to facilitate that process Yet that okay, alright, okay? Audience 2: Okay, So My sending is the opposite of my sunshine, okay? And I have like five planets in my sunshine for Scorpio. Uh-huh So I have pretty strong Scorpio characteristics, but I’m supposed to bring out characteristics of the opposite sign well Speaker: It’s truth of that too. Always the opposite sign has some clues or antidotes to the problem of the sign So yeah in fact you Taurus would be getting the best of Taurus helps you transform The the negative aspects of Scorpio yeah, it’s true for everybody whatever your opposite Is there’s something about it that can actually help you? move forward yeah Audience 2: Okay, and one more is there any merit Being born like in between science. They called like wandering a cusp Something like that merit. They did say any merit. Yeah Speaker: merit No, but because that happens it happens, and it usually the astrologers have different views of this, but usually You know if it’s within two degrees or so three degrees that’s considered cuspid, which means that even though you’re technically in one sign You’re going to have quite a bit of the influence of the neighboring sign, yeah Okay, okay, make sense hey, yeah Audience 3: We had a question online about what is reversing the Wheel so if you would like to address that well Speaker: It’s reversing the wheel what I was saying and trying to say and I was quick with it But your soul will incarnate in a direction around the zodiac for thousands of lifetimes It doesn’t mean it’s one than the next and the next in the next what it means is Energetically there’s a trend of one direction and a trend of the opposite direction Before you’re on the path before you have your awakening your consciousness your soul will incarnate on the forward direction of the wheel that’s the clockwise direction of the wheel and That’s involuting about Getting deeper into matter deeper into form more identification with mental emotional and physical substance to ultimately build the ego of your personality Which is necessary before you even wake up to the soul? but then you say she ate yourself at a certain point and That’s when I was talking about Libra as being the place where you can reverse the wheel and then you start energetically moving around the other direction not one at a time, but the see it as a flow of pattern of Exiting as the corkscrew pulls out of the cork and when you’re fully pulled out of the court actually you’re given another name They’re called the master enlightenment You
