Lucifer

“My experience within esoteric science has conveyed to me how our egotistical nature consistently wants to place the cart before the horse. We want to know about cosmology before we even have an accurate worldview. We want to know about the nature of Lucifer before we have come to an accurate understanding of our own self. This is an essential element of Lucifer, which is to offer advanced knowledge to beings that are not yet fully capable of assimilating it and by doing so become enslaved to the source of this information.

The value of Lucifer becomes far more relevant when we investigate the meaning of this archetype as it relates to us from a personal and visceral level. We must train ourselves to view Lucifer not as a separate entity to be feared and/or worshiped, but as an element of our self to fully comprehend.”

Beyond the Soul’s Meridian October 18, 2017

One of the most important concept within our mythologies is the fall of mankind.  This can be viewed as our descent into the material realm, the emergence of our Ego, and our self-inflicted violation of the soul.  What is essential to keep in perspective is nothing within our human experience is a mistake as much as it is a self-correcting and evolving process of making mistakes and learning through the consequences of those actions.  This process has been accelerated by the presence of fallen beings that have chosen to directly influence and rule the lower realm of existence that as incarnated human beings we are now living within.  All of this is an exercise in free will and no one participating in this perpetual drama is performing in it without their consent.  Virtually everything that we experience is the fruit our labor.  Continue reading “Lucifer”

Astraea: The Star Maiden of Virgo

“Divine Justice is the mystery that is conveyed within the Eighth Arcanum which is literally the archetype of Themis echoed within her daughter Astraea. What is essential to understand is the fact that this is the “Eighth” Arcanum. In my previous August post I had discussed what is called the Eighth sphere as an artificial construct or false reality that is engineered by the negative agendas that are ultimately determined by anti-spiritual forces which are not only outside of us but are ingrained within us and constitute the shadow elements of the Ego. Within the parameters of a world driven by service to self, competition, and egotism, there is no possibility for Divine Justice.”

This September is a relatively unique if not extraordinary month of astronomical and astrological activities.  There are many people watching the heavens, including the Catholic Church, who have observed that the 23rd of September 2017 will be a date which will echo the prophecies of the 12th Chapter of the Book of Revelation regarding the birth of a being that will “rule all the nations with an iron scepter.” (1)  Although the opinion from the Vatican confirms that celestial alignments are close enough to correlate to what St. John describes, we are told to take comfort in the fact that this event is not unique and has happened at least four times over the last millennium in the years 1827, 1483, 1293, and 1056.  Apparently, the world will not end, but most people of intelligence are not harboring this apprehension.   Furthermore, the Vatican’s reassurance is a hollow one and does not address the possibilities that some very trying times may indeed lay ahead of us.  The fact is that anyone reading this post knows that we are truly living through a time that is very dark and challenging.     Continue reading “Astraea: The Star Maiden of Virgo”

Sophia and the Hieros Gamos

“It is said that as events happen within the higher planes of consciousness that they eventually trickle down into the lowest states of being. What is happening on a universal-galactic level is also happening within our biosphere and is now happening within each and every individual that welcomes this transformational event. The essence of what is occurring is intuitive and simple. In fact, it has been described as effortless. Like a matched pair of magnets coming together. What we are doing is connecting the inner part of our self which our soul has become estranged from for so long that we forgot that it even existed. So, all of it begins as an inner awakening which becomes exceedingly familiar to us. In reality we are betrothed to this inner spiritual entity and must become unified with it once more. For many it may take more lifetimes to achieve this union. Ultimately we are intended to experience an inner sacrament in the form of an alchemical wedding also known as the Hieros Gamos. This cannot happen on the physical plane because what we are destined to marry is spiritual and now ingrained within the etheric energies of the earth itself.”

All human beings are born into this world with masculine and feminine energies.  These energies always remain as the essential core of our being, but over time, half of our whole self becomes obfuscated through the processes of physical and psychological development.   For the first 7 weeks after conception the fetus does not have a gender, meaning morphologically males and females are indistinguishable from each other. After this time, the fetus declares a sexual polarity and their bodies begin an externalized growth towards it.  By 8-12 weeks gender can be determined by observation.  Yet even at the time of birth, gender difference remains minimal and in many instances will not fully declare itself until the child has reached puberty.
