Capricorn 24° A woman entering a convent ~ CONSECRATION

“Gaining control over self.”

Let us proceed to a study of this day’s septenary or 7-fold geometric model of the Sabian symbols, which constitutes a mandala of 360 astrological degrees as developed by Dr. Marc Edmund Jones in collaboration with and channeled by Elsie May Wheeler in the spring of 1925.* Additionally, by utilizing the ancient esoteric writing, The Emerald Tablet, Tablet III by Thoth, we adopt a ready and constant framework for our deeper reflections. The chakra system is also made available for the additional insights it may provide; the geometric designs provided are based on the work of Frank Chester and may be used to cut out and assemble a Chestahedron for meditation.

THE EMERALD TABLET ~ Source: Alchemy and Mysticism from The Hermetic Museum Author: Heinrich Khunrath Work: Amhitheatrum sapientae aeternae Date: 1606. This work is over 400 years old, in the public domain.

Thoth: All eyes do not see with the same vision, for to one an object appears of one form and colour and to a different eye of another. So also the infinite fire, changing from colour to colour, is never the same from day to day.

Man is a star bound to a body, until in the end, he is freed through his strife. Only by struggle and toiling thine utmost shall the star within thee bloom out in new life. Wisdom cometh to all her children even as they cometh unto wisdom. All through the ages, the light has been hidden. Awake, O man, and be wise.

Before the Lords of hidden Amenti learned I the wisdom I give unto men. Masters are they of the great Secret Wisdom, brought from the future of infinity’s end. Seven are they, the Lords of Amenti, overlords they of the Children of Morning, Suns of the Cycles, Masters of Wisdom. Formed are not they as the children of men? Three, Four, Five and Six, Seven, Eight, Nine are the titles of the Masters of men.

Far from the future, formless yet forming, came they as teachers for the children of men. Live they forever, yet not of the living, bound not to life and yet free from death. Rule they forever with infinite wisdom, bound yet not bound to the dark Halls of Death. Life they have in them, yet life that is not life, free from all are the Lords of the ALL.

Forth from them came forth the Logos, instruments they of the power o’er all. Vast is their countenance, yet hidden in smallness, formed by a forming, known yet unknown.

THREE holds the key of all hidden magic, creator he of the halls of the Dead; sending forth power, shrouding with darkness, binding the souls of the children of men; sending the darkness, binding the soul force; director of negative to the children of men.

The Root Chakra awakening:  “Gaining control over self.”

Capricorn 24° A woman entering a convent

This is a symbol of the soul’s characteristic dependence on some deep-stirring challenge to its potentialities, and of the fact that life can have no satisfaction for the individual unless he is able to develop and maintain some enduring allegiance of an overall significance. Here is a measure of that cosmic insight through which the self knows that of itself it is nothing, and that it can find itself only as it somehow can feel itself a participant in all-self. Man’s talents are exalted only by a dedication to eternal ends.

The keyword is CONSECRATION.

When positive, the degree is the irresistible power of a true inner vision, and when negative, abject surrender to weakness.

FOUR is he who looses the power. Lord, he, of Life to the children of men. Light is his body, flame is his countenance; freer of souls to the children of men.

Pi 15

The Sacral Chakra awakening:  “The big guy in all of us.”

Pisces 15° An officer preparing to drill his men

This is a symbol of man’s self-betraying desire for a hierarchy of allegiances in which he can lose himself, evident on the side of the superficial life of everyday and its dismissal of all responsibility of consequence. Implicit in the symbolism is a challenge to make the best of the situations from which there is no immediate extrication, but to do so only with a determination to participate in some reality of more enduring importance. Living is vital to the extent each individual decides to motivate it.

The keyword is PRECISENESS.

When positive, the degree is a gift for bringing genuine efficiency and real adventure to common objectives, and when negative, uninspiring drudgery.

FIVE is the master, the Lord of all magic – Key to The Word that resounds among men.

Ta 7

The Solar Plexus Chakra awakening:  “All that’s asked is all you’ve got.”

Taurus 7° A woman of Samaria

This is a symbol of the unimpeachable divinity which characterizes man’s nature at root, represented here by his instinct for higher things as he yet plumbs all experience to the depths and welcomes life almost indiscriminately into the uttermost inner reaches of his being. Implicit in the reversed symbolism of this famous amoral figure of Biblical times is an indomitability of striving for real and gratifying self-fulfillments.

The keyword is AWAKENING.

When positive, the degree is absolute and wholly impersonal self-giving in the hope of an honest self-realization, and when negative, a debasing and carefree dissoluteness accepted in compensation for the unattained and more enduring satisfaction.

SIX is the Lord of Light, the hidden pathway, path of the souls of the children of men.

Ge 28

The Heart Chakra awakening:  “Clean slate. Now, begin again.”

Gemini 28° A man declared bankrupt

This is a symbol of the eternal individuality of the human spirit, able to enter new paths of opportunity and thereupon achieve a further self-refinement whenever its particular involvements in everyday affairs have come to some point of futility. Implicit in the reversed symbolism is the realization of the ultimate transiency of both the rewards and penalties in life, and of the unreality of consequences if ever taken as other than a convenient converging of relationships.

The keyword is DELIVERANCE.

When positive, the degree is an effective and over-all resourcefulness in even the worst of situations, and when negative, a willingness to dodge every responsibility and betray the very core of self.

SEVEN is he who is Lord of the vastness, master of Space and the key of the Times.

Le 19

The Throat Chakra awakening:  “Pro-visioning before the show.”

Leo 19° A houseboat party

This is a symbol of creative relaxation as a prelude to effective effort, and of man’s normal capacity for achievement through an everyday rehearsal of co-operative relationships with his fellows. There is here a sealing off of some pleasant pocket of life for an intensified culture of the skills and inspiration which can implement a contribution to the world at large. Any dull routine of existence may be exalted as a common adventure in self-expenditure.

The keyword is CONGENIALITY.

When positive, the degree is a gracious eagerness of participation in the more worthwhile or enduring aspects of human affairs, and when negative, thoughtless self-indulgence and contempt for the general welfare.

EIGHT is he who orders the progress; weighs and balances the journey of men.

Li 11

The Third Eye Chakra awakening:  “Time to go bravely forward.”

Libra 11° A professor peering over his glasses

This is a symbol of high ego on the personal side, or of the naïve self-confidence by which an individual is enabled to continue the role of superiority he has elected to play among his fellows. Implicit here is the refinement of self in whatever particular phase of excellence will promise recognition for itself, and also the acceptance of the form in which it is manifest. There is a subordination of all other considerations to the immediate dramatization of responsibility.

The keyword is SPECIALIZATION.

When positive, the degree is a quiet mastery of events through a developed insight or depth of understanding, and when negative, a joy in depreciating others and compelling their subservience.

NINE is the father, vast he of countenance, forming and changing from out of the formless.

Sg 2

The Crown Chakra awakening:  “Nothing can stop what’s coming.”

Sagittarius 2° The ocean covered with whitecaps

This is a symbol of the unending availability of everything ever needed for life and experience, emphasized subjectively through the tireless anticipations of the human soul. Implicit in the symbolism is the necessity for giving direction to the restlessness of an over-all consciousness in which man’s immortal being is cradled, and for channeling this into a manifestation of personal energy. The individual prospers as he is self-quickened to his own potentialities.

The keyword is IRREPRESSIBILITY.

When positive, the degree is an indomitable resourcefulness and a naïve delight in the problems of everyday living, and when negative, pointless irritability and nervous self-exhaustion.

Meditate on the symbols I give thee. Keys are they, though hidden from men.

Reach ever upward, O Soul of the morning. Turn thy thoughts upward to Light and to Life. Find in the keys of the numbers I bring thee, light on the pathway from life unto life.

Seek thee with wisdom. Turn thy thoughts inward. Close not thy mind to the flower of Light.

Place in thine body a thought-formed picture. Think of the numbers that lead thee to Life.

Clear is the pathway to he who has wisdom. Open the door to the Kingdom of Light.

Pour forth thy flame as a Sun of the morning. Shut out the darkness and live in the day.

Take thee, O man! As part of thy being, the Seven who are but are not as they seem. Opened, O man! Have I my wisdom. Follow the path in the way I have led.

Masters of Wisdom, SUN of the MORNING LIGHT and LIFE to the children of men.

“Gaining control over self.”

THREE holds the key of all hidden magic, creator he of the halls of the Dead; sending forth power, shrouding with darkness, binding the souls of the children of men; sending the darkness, binding the soul force; director of negative to the children of men.

The Root Chakra awakening:  “Dealing with a paradox?”

Capricorn 23° Two awards for bravery in war

This is a symbol of man’s resourcefulness in developing new areas of experience on the practical side, and of his genius for dramatizing the fruits of an everyday aliveness and thereby stimulating a broadened self-expenditure. The continual effort of an idealistic leadership to hold social and political gains demands an exaltation of personal vision and character, and in the course of time every individual is brought to a broader understanding of his fellows. The goal of living becomes a preservation of values.

The keyword is RECOGNITION.

When positive, the degree is the social stewardship which demands a continual self-dedication, and when negative, strutting self-exploitation.

FOUR is he who looses the power. Lord, he, of Life to the children of men. Light is his body, flame is his countenance; freer of souls to the children of men.

Pi 14

The Sacral Chakra awakening:  “The truth is revealed within.”

Pisces 14° A lady in fox fur

This is a symbol of the ever-effective dynamic with which everyday custom endows mankind, dramatized here by an individual’s desire to be in style and to express opinions of momentary weight. Men are strengthened through whatever they are able to possess or do and think in common, but this is their bondage unless they are able also to contribute a creative content to their own experience. The self gains integrity as it learns never to surrender its initiative, and so it adds its touch to all reality.

The keyword is TASTEFULNESS.

When positive, the degree is high accomplishment through a consistent representation of the self’s assets in the best possible light, and when negative, amoral opportunism.

FIVE is the master, the Lord of all magic – Key to The Word that resounds among men.

Ta 6

The Solar Plexus Chakra awakening:  “Knockin’ on Heaven’s door.”

Taurus 6° A bridge being built across a gorge

This is a symbol of the conquest of natural difficulties by conscious means, and of any individual’s essential independence of nature’s accidents or inconveniences. There are always ways in which physical limitations may be transformed into personal or social assets, thus contributing a dependability on the outer side to a consistency on the inner and so giving every possibility of continuance and intelligence to human experience.

The keyword is CHANNELSHIP.

When positive, the degree is the directness and the practical instinct by which personality achieves ultimate benefit of its powers, and when negative, a love of short cuts and every possible escape from the obligations of daily living.

SIX is the Lord of Light, the hidden pathway, path of the souls of the children of men.

Ge 27

The Heart Chakra awakening:  “By Invitation Only.”

Gemini 27° A gypsy coming out of the forest

This is a symbol of human enthusiasm or of self-consciousness mobilized in a freshness or naivete of self-realization and dramatized by an irresistible desire for success and recognition in an every day world. Here are the enlarged horizons which follow from the individual’s faith in his own potentialities and his willingness to draw on them prodigally and in generous co-operation with his fellows. Man thus finds the resources of all nature available for his exploitation.

The keyword is EXPENDITURE.

When positive, the degree is self-release through a joy in the accomplishments of the moment, and when negative, complete disinclination to enter into the ordinary relationships of society.

SEVEN is he who is Lord of the vastness, master of Space and the key of the Times.

Le 18

The Throat Chakra awakening:  “Choose experiments wisely.”

Leo 18° A teacher of chemistry

This is a symbol of the human mind’s illimitable power for penetrating into the deeper mysteries of an everyday world, and of the growing ambition of man to gain an effective control over all the processes of nature. Here is high organization of the intellectual faculties, and a special skill in the practical adaptation of scientific principles to commonplace problems. The individual is given a full sense of his creative responsibilities.

The keyword is INSTRUCTION.

When positive, the degree is exceptional self-confidence and a delight in subjecting all experience to the test of immediate application, and when negative, unintelligent dependence on supposition or rules of the book.

EIGHT is he who orders the progress; weighs and balances the journey of men.

Li 10

The Third Eye Chakra awakening:  “Risky business underway.”

Libra 10° A canoe approaching safety through dangerous waters

This is a symbol of the necessary validation of all experience through an acceptance of risk, and of the refinement of personal skills through a direct contact with the recurrent exigencies of everyday living. Here the genius of the race is preserved by a fresh and constant participation in life’s transient situations. There is always the goal through which man is led to develop his powers.

The keyword is COMPETENCY.

When positive, the degree is conscious and skilled resort to the course of action which leads most surely to success, and when negative, a primitive love of adventure and a wholly unintelligent faith in sheer good luck.

NINE is the father, vast he of countenance, forming and changing from out of the formless.

Sg 1

The Crown Chakra awakening:  “It’s time to pass the peace pipe.”

Sagittarius 1° A Grand Army of the Republic campfire

This is a symbol of man’s continuing appreciation of every phase of experience that ever has opened up for him, and his desire to live worthily as a basis for every present or future well-being. Here is an emphasis on a subjective passivity of value to the individual as it becomes the inner strength by which he may sustain himself at critical points in his affairs. In his periodic and symbolical return to center he regrasps each special potentiality of his being.

The keyword is REMINISCENCE.

When positive, the degree is accomplishment through the cultivation and preservation of enduring ties with others, and when negative, superficial idleness and unhealthy veneration for the past.

Meditate on the symbols I give thee. Keys are they, though hidden from men.

Reach ever upward, O Soul of the morning. Turn thy thoughts upward to Light and to Life. Find in the keys of the numbers I bring thee, light on the pathway from life unto life.

Seek thee with wisdom. Turn thy thoughts inward. Close not thy mind to the flower of Light.

Place in thine body a thought-formed picture. Think of the numbers that lead thee to Life.

Clear is the pathway to he who has wisdom. Open the door to the Kingdom of Light.

Pour forth thy flame as a Sun of the morning. Shut out the darkness and live in the day.

Take thee, O man! As part of thy being, the Seven who are but are not as they seem. Opened, O man! Have I my wisdom. Follow the path in the way I have led.

Masters of Wisdom, SUN of the MORNING LIGHT and LIFE to the children of men.

THREE holds the key of all hidden magic, creator he of the halls of the Dead; sending forth power, shrouding with darkness, binding the souls of the children of men; sending the darkness, binding the soul force; director of negative to the children of men.

The Root Chakra awakening:  “Name your favorite freedom.”

Capricorn 20° A hidden choir singing

This is a symbol of the eternal music of the spheres, and is an emphasis on the ideality of experience as at root a symphony of cosmic reconciliations. The differences of individual character which have contributed to a person’s initiative and a conscious selfhood are here brought to their point of ultimate and single source in an over-all existence, and each and every element of inharmony is reordered as a participating distinctiveness of the whole. All men are at one in the universal pattern.

The keyword is WORSHIP.

When positive, the degree is a unique gift for establishing a common interest and making it a power for the good of all, and when negative, personal aloofness and lukewarm loyalties.

FOUR is he who looses the power. Lord, he, of Life to the children of men. Light is his body, flame is his countenance; freer of souls to the children of men.

Pi 11

The Sacral Chakra awakening:  “Dignity, a two-way street.”

Pisces 11° Men seeking illumination

This is a symbol of the immortality of man as dramatized in some form of an apostolic succession, or a living tradition of spiritual achievement. The divine spirit is fundamentally a matrix of itself, since its continuance depends on its unswerving maintenance of the purity in motive and expression which it has contributed to the humanity it has created in its own image. The emergence of the human self into experience is similarly a manifestation of the potentialities to which it must devote itself to be itself.

The keyword is DEDICATION.

When positive, the degree is high accomplishment in an effective alignment with ultimate reality, and when negative, obvious hypocrisy.

FIVE is the master, the Lord of all magic – Key to The Word that resounds among men.

Ta 3

The Solar Plexus Chakra awakening:  “Leading to the heart’s desire.”

Taurus 3° Steps up to a lawn blooming with clover

This is a symbol of the indomitable outreaching of the human spirit on the side of a possible and profitable co-operation with the natural universe, and of man’s intuition of divine reality as he entrenches himself in beauty and order. There is restraint in act as a contribution of self-realization, but yet a steady questing for all worth-while fruits of living. Here the upward vision is held completely in leash.

The keyword is HOPEFULNESS.

When positive, the degree is a creative optimism brought to embrace every facet of everyday striving, and when negative, an unwarranted self-indulgence and a disregard of all practical reality through a concern over the phantasmal and impossible.

SIX is the Lord of Light, the hidden pathway, path of the souls of the children of men.

Ge 24

The Heart Chakra awakening:  “Essential ingredient.”

Gemini 24° Children skating on ice

This is a symbol of the persisting imminence of adventure in experience, and of the constant danger to self in failing to sustain or order the complex of things as they are. Implicit in the symbolism is the value of an established reality as a foundation for further refinement of personal capacity and skill. The satisfaction of a successful self-expression always must remain a dynamic impetus to further achievement, and so never become a static aplomb or a surrender to self as it stands.

The keyword is FUN.

When positive, the degree is soul-satisfying experiment in the infinitely varying channels of possible self-discovery, and when negative, a tendency to live for momentary excitement.

SEVEN is he who is Lord of the vastness, master of Space and the key of the Times.

Le 15

The Throat Chakra awakening:  “The due diligence of life.”

Leo 15° A pageant

This is a symbol of man’s constant delight in exhibiting the fruits of his achievement, and of a naiveté dramatized in the world of every day through a very human pride in common works and co-operative accomplishment. There is high magic in the public display of all the things in which the least of individuals may have had some minor part, and out of it comes a sense of fellowship through which the whole is revealed in an over-all excellence and every last inarticulate ideal somehow is exalted.

The keyword is DEMONSTRATION.

When positive, the degree is an irresistible heightening of self-significance across the whole face of experience, and when negative, unconvincing claims and embarrassing self-assertion.

EIGHT is he who orders the progress; weighs and balances the journey of men.

Li 7

The Third Eye Chakra awakening:  “Cometh hell or high water!”

Libra 7° A woman feeding chickens and protecting them from the hawks

This is a symbol of the creative division of labor between the functions of man and nature, and of the dual constitution of the soul in its responsibilities of conservation on the one hand and of development on the other. There is here every capacity for a control of events through a nurturing of the things which are desirable and a rejection of those which have no immediate value.

The keyword is SHREWDNESS.

When positive, the degree is a high competence in administering the duties of normal experience and a very special skill in protecting the self’s real interests, and when negative, a complete personal ineptitude in the face of life’s everyday and recurrent complexities.

NINE is the father, vast he of countenance, forming and changing from out of the formless.

Sc 28

The Crown Chakra awakening:  “The gift of melodrama.”

Scorpio 28° The king of the fairies approaching his domain

This is a symbol of the eternal promise underlying all inner self-realization, since any actual fullness of life is altogether independent of the passing state of affairs in a world of time and space. Implicit in the symbolism is the futility of man’s common reliance on people and things through some mere accident of contact. Outer reality takes the form with which he endows it as he exercises his sovereignty over its various potentials in the creative realms of his own imagination.

The keyword is ALLEGIANCE.

When positive, the degree is a special competence of inward vision and a consequent outward perspective of high effectiveness, and when negative, capricious self-indulgence.

Meditate on the symbols I give thee. Keys are they, though hidden from men.

Reach ever upward, O Soul of the morning. Turn thy thoughts upward to Light and to Life. Find in the keys of the numbers I bring thee, light on the pathway from life unto life.

Seek thee with wisdom. Turn thy thoughts inward. Close not thy mind to the flower of Light.

Place in thine body a thought-formed picture. Think of the numbers that lead thee to Life.

Clear is the pathway to he who has wisdom. Open the door to the Kingdom of Light.

Pour forth thy flame as a Sun of the morning. Shut out the darkness and live in the day.

Take thee, O man! As part of thy being, the Seven who are but are not as they seem. Opened, O man! Have I my wisdom. Follow the path in the way I have led.

Masters of Wisdom, SUN of the MORNING LIGHT and LIFE to the children of men.

Man is a star bound to a body, until in the end, he is freed through his strife.

Before the Lords of hidden Amenti learned I the wisdom I give unto men. Masters are they of the great Secret Wisdom, brought from the future of infinity’s end. Seven are they, the Lords of Amenti, overlords they of the Children of Morning, Suns of the Cycles, Masters of Wisdom. Formed are not they as the children of men?

Far from the future, formless yet forming, came they as teachers for the children of men. Live they forever, yet not of the living, bound not to life and yet free from death. Rule they forever with infinite wisdom, bound yet not bound to the dark Halls of Death. Life they have in them, yet life that is not life, free from all are the Lords of the ALL.

Forth from them came forth the Logos, instruments they of the power o’er all. Vast is their countenance, yet hidden in smallness, formed by a forming, known yet unknown.

THREE holds the key of all hidden magic, creator he of the halls of the Dead; sending forth power, shrouding with darkness, binding the souls of the children of men; sending the darkness, binding the soul force; director of negative to the children of men.

The Root Chakra awakening:  “The conscience will show the way.”

Capricorn 15° Many toys in the children’s ward of a hospital

This is a symbol of the inescapable richness of life in any normal manifestation of itself, here given emphasis through its ample rewards on the social and ideal side. There are physical and psychological limitations which come to all humankind without apparent reason, and which often seem a travesty of divine justice, but they are always an unrealized opportunity for a deeper fellowship. Experience is real in its fruits, rather than in the means to its ends.

The keyword is ABUNDANCE.

When positive, the degree is man’s ability to develop the real potentialities of himself and his fellows despite every transient accident of circumstance, and when negative, hypocritical sympathy and childish self-pampering.

FOUR is he who looses the power. Lord, he, of Life to the children of men. Light is his body, flame is his countenance; freer of souls to the children of men.

Pi 6

The Sacral Chakra awakening:  “Time for a close inspection.”

Pisces 6° Officers on dress parade

This is a symbol of a cyclic and necessary intensification of any personal being, as emphasized on the side of ritualized or ideal experience. Dignity and protocol always provide a dramatic and valuable rehearsal of cultural or group values, exalting each individual in some one respect for the strengthening of all in their total pattern. Here is an investment of selfhood for the long-range potentialities of life, made possible by some immediate and self-fulfilling demonstration of personal skill or capacity.

The keyword is DISCIPLINE.

When positive, the degree is schooled self-assurance and absolute responsibility, and when negative, unimaginative exercise of special privilege.

FIVE is the master, the Lord of all magic – Key to The Word that resounds among men.

Ar 28

The Solar Plexus Chakra awakening: “Is that your business or theirs?”

Aries 28° A large disappointed audience

This is a symbol of the transiency of the rewards in a life taken too literally and narrowly in its more superficial terms. Implicit in the reversed symbolism is the disillusionment that comes when an individual learns that he cannot depend on the applause of his fellows, or make the momentary mood of the masses any proper guide for the values he should pursue. There is here the call to a selfhood which can rest secure in its own creative potentiality, catering to nothing exterior to itself.

The keyword is DISJUNCTION.

When positive, the degree is complete spiritual independence, and when negative, a destructive assimilation of the self to every defeat or frustration of human kind.

SIX is the Lord of Light, the hidden pathway, path of the souls of the children of men.

Ge 19

The Heart Chakra awakening:  “Finding out what makes us tick.”

Gemini 19° A large archaic volume

This is a symbol of the ultimate indestructibility of experience, so that any path once traversed may be taken again with a greater ease and a broader self-discovery. There is here the assurance of illimitable resources in wisdom, and the suggestion that this heritage may be made manifest at any time in an immediate and practical guidance. The past always provides an illumination of the present, and man achieves best as he cultures a real sense of obligation to his own roots.

The keyword is BACKGROUND.

When positive, the degree is a special capacity for the recovery of prior advantages or the effective disentanglement of present involvements, and when negative, a slavish worship of tradition and authority.

SEVEN is he who is Lord of the vastness, master of Space and the key of the Times.

Le 10

The Throat Chakra awakening:  “Crying for a good reason.”

Leo 10° Early morning dew

This is a symbol of the eternal refreshment which comes to the individual with every recurrent cycle of his experience, and of nature’s continual endorsement of his aims or benediction on his efforts. There are unexpected resources which man can find at hand when life otherwise may seem to have defeated him, and these are often revealed to him despite his lack of expectation. He reaps real fruits as he develops a genuine alertness to the unexpected, and denies all personal limitation.

The keyword is REJUVENATION.

When positive, the degree is a special talent for finding the better in every situation where a worse may threaten disaster, and when negative, procrastination and total insensibility to the real powers of selfhood.

EIGHT is he who orders the progress; weighs and balances the journey of men.

Li 2

The Third Eye Chakra awakening:  “Rise up light as a feather.”

Libra 2° The light of the sixth race transmuted to the seventh

This is a symbol of the mirror which history provides for mankind, so that each new generation may see itself reflected in its own past and therefore may be challenged to its real future. The characteristics of a modern and global society (identified by occultists as the sixth root manifestation of human culture) are idealized in the vision ahead (a seventh and climactic manifestation) and every individual is seen within full reach of his own ultimate potential.

The keyword is THRESHOLD.

When positive, the degree is the imaginative sweep of man’s vision and an eagerness to execute its promise, and when negative, a loss of reality in an infinitely regressive otherworldliness or a total lack of all practicality.

NINE is the father, vast he of countenance, forming and changing from out of the formless.

Sc 23

The Crown Chakra awakening:  “Transformed in no time at all.”

Scorpio 23° A bunny metamorphosed into a fairy

This is a symbol of the inner or creative values of everyday living, and of the personal or more dynamic meanings with which man may endow the least of the things around him. Implicit in the symbolism is the kaleidoscopic capacity of his imagination, or the extent to which he may mold and remold the everyday reality with which he deals. Here is poetry of soul as it mirrors each person’s ongoing achievement in character and skills.

The keyword is TRANSITION.

When positive, the degree is the thorough self-conquest by which an individual subordinates his naïve and animal impulses to his ideals and aspirations, and when negative, undisciplined escapism and complete distortion of attitude.

Meditate on the symbols I give thee. Keys are they, though hidden from men.

Reach ever upward, O Soul of the morning. Turn thy thoughts upward to Light and to Life. Find in the keys of the numbers I bring thee, light on the pathway from life unto life.

Seek thee with wisdom. Turn thy thoughts inward. Close not thy mind to the flower of Light.

Place in thine body a thought-formed picture. Think of the numbers that lead thee to Life.

Clear is the pathway to he who has wisdom. Open the door to the Kingdom of Light.

Pour forth thy flame as a Sun of the morning. Shut out the darkness and live in the day.

Take thee, O man! As part of thy being, the Seven who are but are not as they seem. Opened, O man! Have I my wisdom. Follow the path in the way I have led.

Masters of Wisdom, SUN of the MORNING LIGHT and LIFE to the children of men.

“The conscience will show the way.”

On the Shoulders of Giants: Advanced Techniques in Sabian Symbology

Capricorn 14° An ancient bas-relief carved in granite ~ FOUNDATION

“For good or ill, as you will.”

Let us proceed to a study of this day’s septenary or 7-fold geometric model of the Sabian symbols, which constitutes a mandala of 360 astrological degrees as developed by Dr. Marc Edmund Jones in collaboration with and channeled by Elsie May Wheeler in the spring of 1925.* Additionally, by utilizing the ancient esoteric writing, The Emerald Tablet, Tablet III by Thoth, we adopt a ready and constant framework for our deeper reflections. The chakra system is also made available for the additional insights it may provide; the geometric designs provided are based on the work of Frank Chester and may be used to cut out and assemble a Chestahedron for meditation.

THE EMERALD TABLET ~ Source: Alchemy and Mysticism from The Hermetic Museum Author: Heinrich Khunrath Work: Amhitheatrum sapientae aeternae Date: 1606. This work is over 400 years old, in the public domain.

Thoth: All eyes do not see with the same vision, for to one an object appears of one form and colour and to a different eye of another. So also the infinite fire, changing from colour to colour, is never the same from day to day. 

Man is a star bound to a body, until in the end, he is freed through his strife. Only by struggle and toiling thine utmost shall the star within thee bloom out in new life. Wisdom cometh to all her children even as they cometh unto wisdom. All through the ages, the light has been hidden. Awake, O man, and be wise.

Before the Lords of hidden Amenti learned I the wisdom I give unto men. Masters are they of the great Secret Wisdom, brought from the future of infinity’s end. Seven are they, the Lords of Amenti, overlords they of the Children of Morning, Suns of the Cycles, Masters of Wisdom. Formed are not they as the children of men? Three, Four, Five and Six, Seven, Eight, Nine are the titles of the Masters of men.

Far from the future, formless yet forming, came they as teachers for the children of men. Live they forever, yet not of the living, bound not to life and yet free from death. Rule they forever with infinite wisdom, bound yet not bound to the dark Halls of Death. Life they have in them, yet life that is not life, free from all are the Lords of the ALL.

Forth from them came forth the Logos, instruments they of the power o’er all. Vast is their countenance, yet hidden in smallness, formed by a forming, known yet unknown.

THREE holds the key of all hidden magic, creator he of the halls of the Dead; sending forth power, shrouding with darkness, binding the souls of the children of men; sending the darkness, binding the soul force; director of negative to the children of men.

The Root Chakra awakening:  “For good or ill, as you will.”

Capricorn 14° An ancient bas-relief carved in granite

This is a symbol of the immeasurable potentiality of the present moment as a recurrent manifestation of all that ever has been or that ever can be, and of the ability of man to capitalize on opportunities thus brought to focus in himself and his world at large again and again. Here is an absoluteness of self as it proceeds to express itself with a true conviction, and a completeness of its achievement as it acts with the over-all perspective of which it is capable.

The keyword is FOUNDATION.

When positive, the degree is a gift for bringing all things into a pattern of convenience and thereupon precipitating an inevitability of desired results, and when negative, meaningless limitation.

FOUR is he who looses the power. Lord, he, of Life to the children of men. Light is his body, flame is his countenance; freer of souls to the children of men.

Pi 5

The Sacral Chakra awakening:  “Hiding then seeking myself.”

Pisces 5° A church bazaar

This is a symbol of the instinctive loyalties of life as manifest in community institutions, and of man’s ability to capitalize on the enduring allegiances he develops among his kind. Here is his everyday communion with the warmth of personality and its pyramiding powers of accomplishment, and his consequent instrumentation of every individual effort. He makes his over-all contribution to human achievement through his ever-revivifying contacts with his fellows.

The keyword is BENEFIT.

When positive, the degree is a special genius for philanthropy and the organization of society’s real concern for the well-being of men in general, and when negative, social exclusiveness and smug self-satisfaction.

FIVE is the master, the Lord of all magic – Key to The Word that resounds among men.

Ar 27

The Solar Plexus Chakra awakening: “Remember ~ You’re not alone!”

Aries 27° Lost opportunity regained in the imagination

This is a symbol of the psychological maturity of man on the practical side of life, and of the all-important and creative fluidity of character which makes him an immortal being. Here is emphasis on experience as a means by which he may become the author of his own destiny rather than a pawn of purely superficial events, and on his capacity to re-establish himself in his own world by his own efforts whenever he desires a better foundation for whatever he may be set to accomplish.

The keyword is REFORMULATION.

When positive, the degree is the self’s effective command of itself in any situation brought to immediate issue, and when negative, self-pity as a retreat from reality.

SIX is the Lord of Light, the hidden pathway, path of the souls of the children of men.

Ge 18

The Heart Chakra awakening:  “Glossing over the surface.”

Gemini 18° Two Chinese men talking Chinese

This is a symbol of an everyday exclusiveness on the intellectual side of experience, the individual strengthened not as much by actual distinctiveness as by a continual co-operation with fellow enthusiasts in various special areas of interest. A species of uniqueness is idealized as a corrective for self-diffusion. There are here the potentials of high erudition and of an exceptional refinement of the personality along original or unusual lines.

The keyword is DIFFERENCE.

When positive, the degree is the effective mobilization of self and others for life’s more specialized objectives, and when negative, a thorough dissipation of selfhood through alien relationships.

SEVEN is he who is Lord of the vastness, master of Space and the key of the Times.

Le 9

The Throat Chakra awakening:  “Making good use of hot air.”

Leo 9° Glass blowers

This is a symbol of man’s inexhaustibly creative skill of hand and genius of self-application, and of his inherent urge to perform the tasks to be done and to have justification in the ideals to which he would give expression. Here is his contribution of enduring form to things through a private manifestation of the divine breath, and a manipulation of the baser materials of life through a heat that represents his living enthusiasm. The arts and crafts of a culture are both its first beginnings and its final testimony.

The keyword is DEFTNESS.

When positive, the degree is an effectiveness of personal participation in everyday existence, and when negative, willful or unintelligent distortion of reality.

EIGHT is he who orders the progress; weighs and balances the journey of men.

Li 1

The Third Eye Chakra awakening: “Put your idea to work.”

Libra 1° A butterfly made perfect by a dart through it

This is a symbol of completely unconditioned potentiality, as this may be grasped on the imaginative side of life. Here are elements of individual consciousness emerging from a primordial formlessness, and of wisdom developing through the human spirit’s continual determination to project itself into experience. Each person comes into identifiable being through the nature which has been molded for him, and thereupon refines this for his own self-expression.

The keyword is ARTICULATION.

When positive, the degree is man’s awakening to the need for some more whole-souled focus of character, and when negative, the loss of all true selfhood by a needless surrender to the world and conformity to its ways.

NINE is the father, vast he of countenance, forming and changing from out of the formless.

Sc 22

The Crown Chakra awakening:  “The wise use of your power.”

Scorpio 22° Hunters starting out for ducks

This is a symbol of the simplicity of self-expression and the straightforward honesty of desire which men tend to exhibit from birth in nearly every realm of normal or everyday activity, and of the average individual’s need for genuine psychological elbowroom in his dealing with the world about him. Here is freedom of action willy-nilly, as marked in the frequent determination of the human spirit to have this by one means if not by another.

The keyword is ENTERPRISE.

When positive, the degree is a complete lack of personal frustration and a constant refinement of special and practical skills in the approach to daily problems, and when negative, a callous exploitation of all life.

Meditate on the symbols I give thee. Keys are they, though hidden from men.

Reach ever upward, O Soul of the morning. Turn thy thoughts upward to Light and to Life. Find in the keys of the numbers I bring thee, light on the pathway from life unto life.

Seek thee with wisdom. Turn thy thoughts inward. Close not thy mind to the flower of Light.

Place in thine body a thought-formed picture. Think of the numbers that lead thee to Life.

Clear is the pathway to he who has wisdom. Open the door to the Kingdom of Light.

Pour forth thy flame as a Sun of the morning. Shut out the darkness and live in the day.

Take thee, O man! As part of thy being, the Seven who are but are not as they seem. Opened, O man! Have I my wisdom. Follow the path in the way I have led.

Masters of Wisdom, SUN of the MORNING LIGHT and LIFE to the children of men.

The Root Chakra awakening:  “Warning! High Priestess at work.”

Capricorn 13° A fire worshiper

This is a symbol of man’s inner strength through his realization of an inviolable tie with the creative power of the universe itself, dramatized by his continual outreach to the divine in a spiritualizing of his aspiration and a dedication of his talents and possessions to the over-all reality. He knows he must demonstrate his ultimate independence of his circumstances or else surrender his own potentialities forever. Here is ideality brought to the point of miracle.

The keyword is MAGIC.

When positive, the degree is extraordinary skill in enlisting every resource of the world for the exaltation of self and the consummation of its ambitions, and when negative, consistent overestimation of personal capacity.

FOUR is he who looses the power. Lord, he, of Life to the children of men. Light is his body, flame is his countenance; freer of souls to the children of men.

Pi 4

The Sacral Chakra awakening:  “Getting out of our own way.”

Pisces 4° Heavy traffic on a narrow isthmus

This is a symbol of the ultimate illimitability of human relationships, dramatized here in the more personal and ever-ramifying environment of everyday affairs. There are no potentialities of common self-interest that man cannot shape for the convenience and encouragement of a whole selfhood and a well-integrated community, but a high discipline is always necessary for both the individual and the group in each particular development of immediate reality.

The keyword is CONVERGENCE.

When positive, the degree is an unusual gift for organizing all transient enterprise in patterns of a rewarding and overall effectiveness, and when negative, stubborn blindness to the general welfare.

FIVE is the master, the Lord of all magic – Key to The Word that resounds among men.

Ar 26

The Solar Plexus Chakra awakening:  “When you get there, cross the bridge.”

Aries 26° A man possessed of more gifts than he can hold

This is a symbol of exceptional personal endowment on the side of social capacity and of an individual’s ever-potential value to his fellows, here marked by an abnormal spread of interest and a tendency to attempt all things. Implicit in the symbolism is the risk of frustration or even self-betrayal through an uncontrollable restlessness and exaggerated self-confidence, but there is also a prodigality of ambition and effort which can lead to a very genuine self-fulfillment.

The keyword is EQUIPMENT.

When positive, the degree is an uncompromising independence and an inexhaustible drive toward self-discovery, and when negative, an obsession by ideas of no practical worth.

SIX is the Lord of Light, the hidden pathway, path of the souls of the children of men.

Ge 17

The Heart Chakra awakening:  “Better to be right than right.”

Gemini 17° The head of health dissolved into the head of mentality

This is a symbol of man’s achievement on the level of spiritual or eternal fellowship with his kind, here emphasized subjectively as a focus of selfhood in conscious self-awareness and as a capacity to live the lives of all men in imagination and appreciation. Implicit in the symbolism is the foundation of any human well-being in everyday or immediate and practical fact, with well-rounded individuality made the condition of all real progress.

The keyword is DEVELOPMENT.

When positive, the degree is the effective orientation of selfhood in an over-all vision, and when negative, a defeat of accomplishment by a senseless clinging to the illusions of youth.

SEVEN is he who is Lord of the vastness, master of Space and the key of the Times.

Le 8

The Throat Chakra awakening:  “Be still and know that I am.”

Leo 8° A Bolshevik propagandist

This is a symbol of the indomitable expectation of the human spirit as it gathers strength from the innermost reaches of man’s own or enduring nature, here emphasized by the recurrent battles over social and political concepts. The exceptional dynamic involved is seen in the selfless energy developed to an extreme by the revolutionists of each new age. Implicit in the reversed symbolism is the need of the human community for a worthy cause to which to rally in every aspect of its potentials.

The keyword is LEAVEN.

When positive, the degree is a determination to share the soul’s vision and to make a permanent impact on history, and when negative, futile ranting against a multitude of superficial ills.

EIGHT is he who orders the progress; weighs and balances the journey of men.

Vi 30

The Third Eye Chakra awakening:  “Light is called into action.”

Virgo 30° A false call unheard in attention to immediate service

This is a symbol of human responsibility as an immortality of the soul, and of a way of living which has achieved an absoluteness of attitude or understanding and is able in consequence to dramatize a high personal competency in everyday problem solving. Each individual creates his place for himself among his fellows, and thereafter all life tends to protect him in his way of going and all circumstances somehow seem to shape themselves for his convenience and encouragement.

The keyword is SAFEGUARD.

When positive, the degree is exceptionally gratifying self-fulfillment through the development of a genuine integrity, and when negative, consistently witless indiscretion.

NINE is the father, vast he of countenance, forming and changing from out of the formless.

Sc 21

The Crown Chakra awakening: “Life, yes! But death with honor!”

“Death, yes! But life with honor!”

Scorpio 21° A soldier derelict in duty

This is a symbol of the necessary adjustments of life on the side of decisions and consequences, and of the penalties for man’s lack of discrimination in any given set of circumstances. The reversed symbolism dramatizes the tragedy when obligations and desires come into conflict with each other, but suggests that the inherent divinity of the individual makes it ever impossible for him to continue in any course which does not prove rewarding.

The keyword is DEVIATION.

When positive, the degree is effective responsibility to the inner stirrings of self and a willingness to face the consequence of true self-assertion, and when negative, complete faithlessness to the common welfare.

Meditate on the symbols I give thee. Keys are they, though hidden from men.

Reach ever upward, O Soul of the morning. Turn thy thoughts upward to Light and to Life. Find in the keys of the numbers I bring thee, light on the pathway from life unto life.

Seek thee with wisdom. Turn thy thoughts inward. Close not thy mind to the flower of Light.

Place in thine body a thought-formed picture. Think of the numbers that lead thee to Life.

Clear is the pathway to he who has wisdom. Open the door to the Kingdom of Light.

Pour forth thy flame as a Sun of the morning. Shut out the darkness and live in the day.

Take thee, O man! As part of thy being, the Seven who are but are not as they seem. Opened, O man! Have I my wisdom. Follow the path in the way I have led.

Masters of Wisdom, SUN of the MORNING LIGHT and LIFE to the children of men.

On the Shoulders of Giants: Advanced Techniques in Sabian Symbology

Capricorn 12° A student of nature lecturing ~ EXPLANATION

“It’s time to believe in you.” 

Let us proceed to a study of this day’s septenary or 7-fold geometric model of the Sabian symbols, which constitutes a mandala of 360 astrological degrees as developed by Dr. Marc Edmund Jones in collaboration with and channeled by Elsie May Wheeler in the spring of 1925.* Additionally, by utilizing the ancient esoteric writing, The Emerald Tablet, Tablet III by Thoth, we adopt a ready and constant framework for our deeper reflections.

Thoth: All eyes do not see with the same vision, for to one an object appears of one form and colour and to a different eye of another. So also the infinite fire, changing from colour to colour, is never the same from day to day.

Man is a star bound to a body, until in the end, he is freed through his strife. Only by struggle and toiling thine utmost shall the star within thee bloom out in new life. Wisdom cometh to all her children even as they cometh unto wisdom. All through the ages, the light has been hidden. Awake, O man, and be wise. 

Before the Lords of hidden Amenti learned I the wisdom I give unto men. Masters are they of the great Secret Wisdom, brought from the future of infinity’s end. Seven are they, the Lords of Amenti, overlords they of the Children of Morning, Suns of the Cycles, Masters of Wisdom. Formed are not they as the children of men? Three, Four, Five and Six, Seven, Eight, Nine are the titles of the Masters of men.

Far from the future, formless yet forming, came they as teachers for the children of men. Live they forever, yet not of the living, bound not to life and yet free from death. Rule they forever with infinite wisdom, bound yet not bound to the dark Halls of Death. Life they have in them, yet life that is not life, free from all are the Lords of the ALL.

Forth from them came forth the Logos, instruments they of the power o’er all. Vast is their countenance, yet hidden in smallness, formed by a forming, known yet unknown.

THREE holds the key of all hidden magic, creator he of the halls of the Dead; sending forth power, shrouding with darkness, binding the souls of the children of men; sending the darkness, binding the soul force; director of negative to the children of men.

The Root Chakra awakening:  “It’s time to believe in you.”

Capricorn 12° A student of nature lecturing

This is a symbol of the wide ramification in experience by which man achieves his greater opportunities, emphasized on the vicarious or intellectual side as he participates in events and shares meanings through the mind’s eye alone. Here is direct fulfillment in consciousness. Life gains its illimitability as the individual discovers that he can master its endless facets through ever-expanding facilities of the reason.

The keyword is EXPLANATION.

When positive, the degree is self-confidence through the acquisition of knowledge and effective self-direction through the practical application of all values, and when negative, psychological smugness and an unreasonable pride of intellect.

FOUR is he who looses the power. Lord, he, of Life to the children of men. Light is his body, flame is his countenance; freer of souls to the children of men.

Pi 3

The Sacral Chakra awakening:  “Let us embrace our karma.”

Pisces 3° A petrified forest

This is a symbol of the absolute certainty which any individual may develop in the terms of his conscious knowledge, and of the power in human character which becomes the hallmark of his intellectual orientation. The static symbolism is a warning against any reliance on stabilities to which no immediate or personal contribution is made, and which in consequence may become obstacles to progress. Here rather is dramatization of an eternal stoutheartedness, and of its very practical dividends in spiritual continuance.

The keyword is SURVIVAL.

When positive, the degree is effective continuity and breadth of resource in all human effort, and when negative, complete immobilization in superficial reality.

FIVE is the master, the Lord of all magic – Key to The Word that resounds among men.

Ar 25

The Solar Plexus Chakra awakening:   “Either way you look at it.”

Aries 25° A double promise

This is a symbol of man’s stark resourcefulness on the side of everyday experience. For each potentiality that life may offer him there are alternatives of equal or supplementary value which he is able to recognize, and within himself there is always the symbolical as well as the literal pertinence of everything that comes to his attention. Here is unlimited capacity for seeing the world and self both inwardly and outwardly.

The keyword is SENSIBILITY.

When positive, the degree is a facility of adjustment by which everything in a given situation may be brought into the fullest co-operation with everything else, and when negative, compromising insincerity and a lean to chicanery in all human relationships.

SIX is the Lord of Light, the hidden pathway, path of the souls of the children of men.

Ge 16

The Heart Chakra awakening:  “Do you want to get better?”

Gemini 16° A woman suffragist haranguing

This is a symbol of the soul’s demand for a full participation in the responsibilities of human society, and of the realization that the values of life are maintained only as there is a mutual give-and-take in respect to every real difference in point of view. There is here the necessity for substantiating right with a reasoned conviction, and for enlarging the privileges of man through a broad extension of all common or community functions.

The keyword is INDIGNATION.

When positive, the degree is an unswerving determination to expand every potential of being and take part in every possible detail of world-wide reconstruction, and when negative, a bias forever exalting itself.

SEVEN is he who is Lord of the vastness, master of Space and the key of the Times.

Le 7

The Throat Chakra awakening: “The Alpha and Omega.”

Leo 7° The constellations in the sky

This is a symbol of the infinite regression in all universal reality, not as a fact of some unreachable end in knowledge but rather as a demonstration that any abandonment of the known for the sake of the unknown is fruitless. The cosmos is illimitable in the sense that man’s questing may ramify in time and space to the extent of any given pertinence, but his assurance lies within his own being and experience. The stars are his confirmation, never his explanation.

The keyword is SURETY.

When positive, the degree is consistent effectiveness in understanding and self-ordering, and when negative, a loss of all present integrity through an unnecessary retreat to the remote or mysterious.

EIGHT is he who orders the progress; weighs and balances the journey of men.

Vi 29

The Third Eye Chakra awakening:  “The bridge from past to future.”

Virgo 29° A man gaining secret knowledge from a paper he is reading

This is a symbol of the world’s conservatism, and of the refusal of nature to surrender any part of her heritage unnecessarily. The fixity of idea by which human beings preserve their culture is also a protection for all hidden wisdom and unsuspected ways of knowing, since the deeper awareness is merely a broader reference or a further application of stabilities which constitute a universe at large. The possibilities of greater experience lie in embryo throughout the lesser.

The keyword is DISCOVERY.

When positive, the degree is imagination brought to the full of its powers through conscious effort, and when negative, loss of common sense in pure supposition.

NINE is the father, vast he of countenance, forming and changing from out of the formless.

Sc 20

The Crown Chakra awakening:  “To find out what we don’t know.”

Scorpio 20° A woman drawing two dark curtains aside

This is a symbol of the enduring values which the average individual visualizes behind the outer façade of everyday existence, and of his desire to penetrate to more worthy dimensions of experience. Implicit in the symbolism is the essential courage of the soul, and the vital concept of life as unrewarding except as it provides a way to cross every threshold of common limitation. Man’s being is not his own unless he can gamble on its continuance.

The keyword is DARING.

When positive, the degree is the psychological indomitability with which the human spirit plunges ahead in every new adventure of accomplishment, and when negative, a personality debased by fatuous self-exhibition.

Meditate on the symbols I give thee. Keys are they, though hidden from men.

Reach ever upward, O Soul of the morning. Turn thy thoughts upward to Light and to Life. Find in the keys of the numbers I bring thee, light on the pathway from life unto life.

Seek thee with wisdom. Turn thy thoughts inward. Close not thy mind to the flower of Light.

Place in thine body a thought-formed picture. Think of the numbers that lead thee to Life.

Clear is the pathway to he who has wisdom. Open the door to the Kingdom of Light.

Pour forth thy flame as a Sun of the morning. Shut out the darkness and live in the day.

Take thee, O man! As part of thy being, the Seven who are but are not as they seem. Opened, O man! Have I my wisdom. Follow the path in the way I have led.

Masters of Wisdom, SUN of the MORNING LIGHT and LIFE to the children of men.

“It’s time to believe in you.”

On the Shoulders of Giants: Advanced Techniques in Sabian Symbology

Capricorn 11° A large group of pheasants ~ ILLIMITABILITY

“I AM—my moment is NOW!”

Let us proceed to a study of this day’s septenary or 7-fold geometric model of the Sabian symbols, which constitutes a mandala of 360 astrological degrees as developed by Dr. Marc Edmund Jones in collaboration with and channeled by Elsie May Wheeler in the spring of 1925.* Additionally, by utilizing the ancient esoteric writing, The Emerald Tablet, Tablet III by Thoth, we adopt a ready and constant framework for our deeper reflections. The chakra system is also made available for the additional insights it may provide; the geometric designs provided are based on the work of Frank Chester and may be used to cut out and assemble a Chestahedron for meditation.

THE EMERALD TABLET ~ Source: Alchemy and Mysticism from The Hermetic Museum Author: Heinrich Khunrath Work: Amhitheatrum sapientae aeternae Date: 1606. This work is over 400 years old, in the public domain.

Man is a star bound to a body, until in the end, he is freed through his strife. Only by struggle and toiling thine utmost shall the star within thee bloom out in new life. Wisdom cometh to all her children even as they cometh unto wisdom. All through the ages, the light has been hidden. Awake, O man, and be wise. 

Before the Lords of hidden Amenti learned I the wisdom I give unto men. Masters are they of the great Secret Wisdom, brought from the future of infinity’s end. Seven are they, the Lords of Amenti, overlords they of the Children of Morning, Suns of the Cycles, Masters of Wisdom. Formed are not they as the children of men? Three, Four, Five and Six, Seven, Eight, Nine are the titles of the Masters of men.

Far from the future, formless yet forming, came they as teachers for the children of men. Live they forever, yet not of the living, bound not to life and yet free from death. Rule they forever with infinite wisdom, bound yet not bound to the dark Halls of Death. Life they have in them, yet life that is not life, free from all are the Lords of the ALL.

Forth from them came forth the Logos, instruments they of the power o’er all. Vast is their countenance, yet hidden in smallness, formed by a forming, known yet unknown.

THREE holds the key of all hidden magic, creator he of the halls of the Dead; sending forth power, shrouding with darkness, binding the souls of the children of men; sending the darkness, binding the soul force; director of negative to the children of men.

The Root Chakra awakening:  Capricorn 11° A large group of pheasants

“I AM—my moment is NOW!”

This is a symbol of the social ritualization by which man’s everyday personality is able to maintain and refine its particular characteristics, and of the common expression of self through which life endows each individual with his fundamental inner certainty and his convenient outer reality. Here is an emphasis on the reduplications and multiplications of every facet of existence, so that the continuous variations come to dramatize an infinite potential inherent in the whole.

The keyword is ILLIMITABILITY.

When positive, the degree is a tireless pursuit of every personal aspiration, and when negative, egotistic satisfaction in matching the mediocrity of others.

FOUR is he who looses the power. Lord, he, of Life to the children of men. Light is his body, flame is his countenance; freer of souls to the children of men.

Pi 2

The Sacral Chakra awakening:  Pisces 2° A squirrel hiding from hunters

“When the time is right, you’ll know.”

This is a symbol of the conscious conservatism through which man preserves his more enduring values, here emphasized by an uncompromising loyalty to his own self-interest. Implicit in the negative symbolism is a species of high courage in refusing to enter any phase of experience where the risks are out of proportion to probable rewards. A sense of illimitable self-adequacy is contingent on good judgment as the highest of human potentialities.

The keyword is CAUTION.

When positive, the degree is an intelligent independence of spirit and a consequent real gift for setting the conditions for all personal participation in events, and when negative, self-debasing timidity.

FIVE is the master, the Lord of all magic – Key to The Word that resounds among men.

Ar 24

The Solar Plexus Chakra awakening:  Aries 24° An open window and a net curtain blowing into a cornucopia

“Here is a great Mystery.”

This is a symbol of the mutual prodigality of man and his world whenever he retains his uninhibited enthusiasm and so welcomes every varying and recurrent opportunity opening up before him. There are here the continued outer manifestations of what at times may seem to be an unmerited good fortune, but they merely show the human and cosmic facets of reality in a convenient and joyful realization of each other.

The keyword is MUNIFICENCE.

When positive, the degree is an irrepressible genius for capturing the richer rewards of life and providing a wider distribution for the higher realities, and when negative, a smug and petty self-importance in dispensing favors to others.

SIX is the Lord of Light, the hidden pathway, path of the souls of the children of men.

Ge 15

The Heart Chakra awakening:  Gemini 15° Two Dutch children talking

“When the call comes, answer it.”

This is a symbol of the creative interest of man in the broad range of potentialities on which he may draw. His rehearsal of experience here becomes vicarious and a matter of childlike or unconditioned familiarity with the simple contributions of the self to its milieu at root, thus facilitating a more effective grasp of life on every practical or everyday level. All relationships are reduced to common elements of background and skills.

The keyword is CLARIFICATION.

When positive, the degree is a self-confidence of spirit by which man is able to establish himself advantageously at ease in any possible situation, and when negative, extreme provincialism and inability to communicate ideas of any moment.

SEVEN is he who is Lord of the vastness, master of Space and the key of the Times.

Le 6

The Throat Chakra awakening:  Leo 6° An old-fashioned woman and an up-to-date girl

“The paradoxes of life.”

This is a symbol of the essentially dramatic function of the soul as it plays its various roles in a human society, here brought out in a practical aspect of everyday values. There is at once a co-operation and a competition between those ways of life which protect the contribution of the past on the one hand and administer the promise of the future on the other. Conventionality and initiative are a continual stimulus to each other.

The keyword is CONTRAST.

When positive, the degree is personal achievement through a creative appreciation and adaptation of the values established by others, and when negative, overemphasis of individualistic traits and a psychological timidity.

EIGHT is he who orders the progress; weighs and balances the journey of men. 

Vi 28

The Third Eye Chakra awakening:  Virgo 28° A bald-headed man

“Watch where you wield your power!”

This is a symbol of a simple satisfaction in the inner rather than outer manifestations of reality, and of the challenge to any purely personal attainment to become more than a visible proof of the special excellency. Man is not called on to make himself a scourge of his fellows any more than he is to be encouraged to neglect them, but there are illimitable areas in which the driving power of his personality can create or advance widespread opportunities for a richer and more enjoyable living.

The keyword is DOMINANCE.

When positive, the degree is accomplishment through a completeness of self-mastery and a rigid control of others, and when negative, a sadistic sophistication.

NINE is the father, vast he of countenance, forming and changing from out of the formless. 

Sc 19

The Crown Chakra awakening:  Scorpio 19° A parrot listening and then talking

“It’s on the tip of your tongue.”

This is a symbol of the raw substance of intelligence, and it suggests that conscious existence can be shaped according to any desired lineaments. Inherent in the symbolism is a sensitiveness to the continual reworking of reality on the ideal or imaginative side, and to the opportunity the individual may have for selecting or rejecting every essential element of his make-up. Man continually projects the image in which he creates himself.

The keyword is CONVENTIONALITY.

When positive, the degree is exceptional skill in bringing the whole tenor of transient circumstances to the service of a personal aspiration, and when negative, idle mimicry and self-gratifying pretense.

Meditate on the symbols I give thee. Keys are they, though hidden from men.

Reach ever upward, O Soul of the morning. Turn thy thoughts upward to Light and to Life. Find in the keys of the numbers I bring thee, light on the pathway from life unto life.

Seek thee with wisdom. Turn thy thoughts inward. Close not thy mind to the flower of Light.

Place in thine body a thought-formed picture. Think of the numbers that lead thee to Life.

Clear is the pathway to he who has wisdom. Open the door to the Kingdom of Light.

Pour forth thy flame as a Sun of the morning. Shut out the darkness and live in the day.

Take thee, O man! As part of thy being, the Seven who are but are not as they seem. Opened, O man! Have I my wisdom. Follow the path in the way I have led.

Masters of Wisdom, SUN of the MORNING LIGHT and LIFE to the children of men.

The Root Chakra awakening:  Capricorn 10° An albatross feeding from the hand

“All of my needs are supplied.”

This is a symbol of man’s basic self-justification on the practical or commonplace side, and of his complete dependence on the co-operation of the world at large for any actuality of personal experience. He must ever take the initiative in meeting the needs of others if he is to expect them to stir appreciably and similarly in his own behalf. If he reaps in life he must sow abundantly, and he establishes himself as he expends himself and thereby encourages his fellows to do the same.

The keyword is NURTURE.

When positive, the degree is unusual success in dramatizing the potentialities of human nature and its ramifying achievements, and when negative, overconcern with side issues.

FOUR is he who looses the power. Lord, he, of Life to the children of men. Light is his body, flame is his countenance; freer of souls to the children of men.

Pi 1

The Sacral Chakra awakening:  Pisces 1° A public market

“Go now and do something new.”

This is a symbol of full maturity in man’s social estate, with an emphasis on the group integrity which facilitates the development of each individual in his own special pattern. The common ideals of a community life are given their everyday manifestation through the willingness of each participant to do his part. Ambition has its effective refinement here as it combines a consistent generosity toward the aims of other with a real intensity of effort directed toward its own ends.

The keyword is COMMERCE.

When positive, the degree is an exceptional capacity for organizing the converging and conflicting interests of many people in practical arrangements of mutual benefit, and when negative, complete insensibility to any over-all welfare.

FIVE is the master, the Lord of all magic – Key to The Word that resounds among men.

Ar 23

The Solar Plexus Chakra awakening:  Aries 23° A woman in pastel colors carrying a heavy and valuable but veiled load

“A white stone with a new name.”

This is a symbol of the soul’s basic anchorage in the privacy of its own functioning, and of the centering of real personality in the elements of its own particular genius. Implicit in the symbolism is the ultimate unimportance of purely superficial distinctions among various individuals, and the enduring worth of any experience for which the self accepts a complete responsibility.

The keyword is RETICENCE.

When positive, the degree is the unimpeachable integrity of the man whose fullness of life becomes a practical contribution to the circumstances in which he dwells, and when negative, a disinclination to participate at all fairly in everyday living.

SIX is the Lord of Light, the hidden pathway, path of the souls of the children of men.

Ge 14

The Heart Chakra awakening:  Gemini 14° A conversation by telepathy

“Duly noted, focus fixed.”

This is a symbol of the transcendent level on which human experience has its truest focus, here at the extreme of personal realization. There are illimitable ties between each individual and every one of his fellows, providing the fabric for a fellowship of invisible sympathies or co-operations and making him sensitive at all times and at all points to the potentialities in which he may have a self-fulfillment.

The keyword is INTIMATION.

When positive, the degree is an exceptional capacity for achievement through the more organic relationships of personality in given and pertinent connections, and when negative, attempted accomplishment through innuendo or underhanded means.

SEVEN is he who is Lord of the vastness, master of Space and the key of the Times.

Le 5

The Throat Chakra awakening:  Leo 5° Rock formations at the edge of a precipice

“A mighty fortress are we.”

This is a symbol of the constitution of reality in crisis, offering a challenge to man as it pyramids in ramifying involvements until action or decision becomes an immediate necessity. There is no possible sustainment of individuality without an acceptance of difficulty as significant and an accompanying realization that every shift in orientation is a demand for some enlarged self-discovery. Personality only achieves its stability at the threshold of the risks it is willing to take.

The keyword is ENDURANCE.

When positive, the degree is man’s genius for initial aplomb and ultimate competency in the face of all danger, and when negative, pure bullheadedness.

EIGHT is he who orders the progress; weighs and balances the journey of men. 

Vi 27

The Third Eye Chakra awakening:  Virgo 27° Grande dames at tea

“Actions speak louder than words.”

This is a symbol of life’s maturity as a threshold of new discovery rather than as any canceling out of personal reality, and it emphasizes the fact that each individual may pass on what he has gained and thereby have an effective continuance of himself through others. Here are the highly concentrated values of selfhood as the reservoir of racial assets, since the traditions of one generation are always the ever-ready strength of the next.

The keyword is APLOMB.

When positive, the degree is an efficient administration of inheritance or position and a full capitalization on the opportunities of common experience, and when negative, a selfish delight in special privileges of any sort.

NINE is the father, vast he of countenance, forming and changing from out of the formless. 

Sc 18

The Crown Chakra awakening:  Scorpio 18° A woods rich in autumn coloring

“Bring to pass the coming forth.”

This is a symbol of nature’s high ministry of service to every function and purpose of individual living, and of the varying manifestations of a reality supported and brought to its genuine fruitage by the eternal and illimitable resources on every hand. There is here an exaltation of every ideal potentiality, dramatized in the form of inevitable and universal consummations of order and beauty. Life achieves its ultimate promise in a personal excellence, which may be found compounded a thousandfold.

The keyword is FULFILLMENT.

When positive, the degree is high success in every area of true self-interest, and when negative, a perverse delight in permitting worth-while things to go to seed.

Meditate on the symbols I give thee. Keys are they, though hidden from men.

Reach ever upward, O Soul of the morning. Turn thy thoughts upward to Light and to Life. Find in the keys of the numbers I bring thee, light on the pathway from life unto life.

Seek thee with wisdom. Turn thy thoughts inward. Close not thy mind to the flower of Light.

Place in thine body a thought-formed picture. Think of the numbers that lead thee to Life.

Clear is the pathway to he who has wisdom. Open the door to the Kingdom of Light.

Pour forth thy flame as a Sun of the morning. Shut out the darkness and live in the day.

Take thee, O man! As part of thy being, the Seven who are but are not as they seem. Opened, O man! Have I my wisdom. Follow the path in the way I have led.

Masters of Wisdom, SUN of the MORNING LIGHT and LIFE to the children of men.

Rule they forever with infinite wisdom, bound yet not bound to the dark Halls of Death. Life they have in them, yet life that is not life, free from all are the Lords of the ALL.

Forth from them came forth the Logos, instruments they of the power o’er all. Vast is their countenance, yet hidden in smallness, formed by a forming, known yet unknown.

THREE holds the key of all hidden magic, creator he of the halls of the Dead; sending forth power, shrouding with darkness, binding the souls of the children of men; sending the darkness, binding the soul force; director of negative to the children of men.

The Root Chakra awakening:  Capricorn 9° An angel carrying a harp

“I’ll tune it myself, thank you.”

This is a symbol of the eternal and unabated interest of the human spirit in the simple potentialities of experience, and of the unconditioned enthusiasm of all human motives in their original inception. Here is a continuing sense of spiritual source as it pervades man’s consciousness, enabling him to avoid the limitations in any given situation and so to drive ahead to a point of self-fulfillment. There is an over-all harmony of which each individual remains essentially a part.

The keyword is ATTUNEMENT.

When positive, the degree is a special gift for inspiring others to accomplishment and for realizing the ultimate dreams of self as a consequence, and when negative, simple fantasy and uncritical self-superiority.

FOUR is he who looses the power. Lord, he, of Life to the children of men. Light is his body, flame is his countenance; freer of souls to the children of men.

Aq 30

The Sacral Chakra awakening:  Aquarius 30° The field of Ardath in bloom

“Dying then living for love.”

This is a symbol of the spiritual integrity of nature herself, dramatized by Marie Corelli’s mystic meadow of ancient Babylon as an ageless and special challenge to modern life. Everyone may count on the inherent friendliness of the universe, and in consequence on the capacity of man’s destiny to endow him with fruits of his good rather than his bad works. The individual ultimately must rely on the world in which he finds himself, and so should live in such fashion that a reliance on him in turn is both possible and inviting.

The keyword is CONTINUITY.

When positive, the degree is self-illumination through exceptional service to others, and when negative, witless reaction to fantasy.

FIVE is the master, the Lord of all magic – Key to The Word that resounds among men.

Ar 22

The Solar Plexus Chakra awakening:  Aries 22° The gate to the garden of desire

“To hold the world in your palm.”

This is a symbol of man’s uncompromising faith in the fact of his being, and of his naïve optimism as life opens up one or another of its opportunities before him. Here is self-fulfillment in the realization that there are always unlimited days ahead and that immeasurable frontiers are yet to be crossed. Personality forever reassures itself by an enhancement of its dreams and a strengthening of its deeper expectations.

The keyword is PROSPECT.

When positive, the degree is a high quickening to every possibility of individual discovery and experience, and when negative, a tendency to while away the years in contemplating the things which might be claimed for the self rather than making any real effort to gain them.

SIX is the Lord of Light, the hidden pathway, path of the souls of the children of men.

Ge 13

The Heart Chakra awakening:  Gemini 13˚ A great musician at his piano

“Now go and make it better.”

This is a symbol of individual artistry as the property of all, with its expression both its strength and the means whereby others are encouraged to like accomplishment. Here is experience at a climax on the side of self-refinement in skills and talent, and at a peak in its gratification and its promise of continuing effort and sharing of rewards. A continually expanded dimension of being becomes the constant revelation of man’s true estate.

The keyword is ACHIEVEMENT.

When positive, the degree is the creative assurance which contributes enduring overtones to human understanding, and when negative, self-defeat through a delight in momentary attention or superficial adulation.

SEVEN is he who is Lord of the vastness, master of Space and the key of the Times.

Le 4

The Throat Chakra awakening:  Leo 4° A man formally dressed and a deer with its horns folded

“With appropriate action.”

This is a symbol of self-assertion at a point of effective impact on the world, dramatized here on the side of an established and everyday reality. Formality becomes a magical ordering of the automatisms of lesser things, enlisting them in an enduring service to each individual’s more outstanding talents. His achievements become evident in the trophies by which he makes his consistent contribution of the real essence of himself to his fellows.

The keyword is MORALE.

When positive, the degree is exceptional capacity for winning and holding the esteem of men, and when negative, dependence on applause and a playing to the gallery to get it.

EIGHT is he who orders the progress; weighs and balances the journey of men. 

Vi 26

The Third Eye Chakra awakening:  Virgo 26° A boy with a censer

“Getting Divine attention.”

This is a symbol of individual initiative as a basic dynamic in the universal scheme of things, and it reveals itself most simply in man’s positive and necessarily self-seeking outreach to the world he would claim for himself. He makes his conscious appeal to God, since it is a divine being which provides the over-all unity he recognizes and would enlist for his aspiration. His motive is spiritual because he knows he must share any reality he would care to possess.

The keyword is RAPTURE.

When positive, the degree is a completeness of self-dedication and an achievement grounded in a consistent worthiness of living, and when negative, a resort to empty motions in order to avoid any appreciable self-expenditure.

NINE is the father, vast he of countenance, forming and changing from out of the formless. 

Sc 17

The Crown Chakra awakening:  Scorpio 17° A woman the father of her own child

“Time you got to know your heart.”

This is a symbol of the eternal conflict between the practical involvements and the ideal potentialities of human nature, as here emphasized in man’s conscious individuality. The soul feels the weight of its transient responsibilities while the indwelling and immortal spirit is sensitive to its need for an enduring place in the scheme of things. The recurrent virgin birth of self is its reconciliation with its world through their common center or reality.

The keyword is NUCLEATION.

When positive, the degree is an illimitable self-potentiality with effective spiritual or ideal as well as practical or everyday orientations, and when negative, a characteristically anarchistic self-sufficiency.

Meditate on the symbols I give thee. Keys are they, though hidden from men.

Reach ever upward, O Soul of the morning. Turn thy thoughts upward to Light and to Life. Find in the keys of the numbers I bring thee, light on the pathway from life unto life.

Seek thee with wisdom. Turn thy thoughts inward. Close not thy mind to the flower of Light.

Place in thine body a thought-formed picture. Think of the numbers that lead thee to Life.

Clear is the pathway to he who has wisdom. Open the door to the Kingdom of Light.

Pour forth thy flame as a Sun of the morning. Shut out the darkness and live in the day.

Take thee, O man! As part of thy being, the Seven who are but are not as they seem. Opened, O man! Have I my wisdom. Follow the path in the way I have led.

Masters of Wisdom, SUN of the MORNING LIGHT and LIFE to the children of men. 

“I’ll tune it myself, thank you.”
