Just drying out the synapses in all this Aries heat. Mercury moves forward, Sun in Aries, the Vernal Equinox is upon us. It’s all good–unless of course you’re a Syrian, Palestinian, Malian, Afghani, Paki or any number of people that reject genetically modified anythings. In which case, your day is filled with some faint glimmer of hope against an eternal struggle of having someone or something trying to impose not just their will upon you, but completely alter and obliterate any historical reference, both inside and out of your DNA’s original supposedly safe, code. The ancient war on this planet isn’t about land rights or resources, its about the conquest of your soul.
On May 29th, 1913 (that’s 11-22 or 33 if you’re keeping score at home, and in the 5 and you get back to 11), “Le Sacre du Primtemps” also known as “The Rite Of Spring” premiered in Paris. The score and the overall theme of the ballet was conjured up by Igor Stravinsky. But Stravinsky had some serious help. The philosophical and esoteric mind behind “Le Sacre” was Nicholas Roerich. Roerich might be one of the most pivotal, esoteric and occult agents of the 20th century.
One of Roerich’s claims to fame was that he was the possessor of the “Chintamani Stone” which pre-dates that Grail Cup as one of the most prized power objects or totems on the planet. It’s claimed that the Chintamani Stone had broken off from a planet that orbits Sirius. Many believe that the Kabaa in Mecca has part of the stone sealed in it’s core.
With a piece of the Chintamani in his possession, Roerich made a pilgrimage to Tibet, to re-unite the stone with Shamabala. This conferred upon Roerich enormous street cred as the stone apparently gave one the ability to see into the past and future, while accelerating and upgrading all human functions to a supra-human level. Roerich became so influential, that he penetrated some of the most powerful circles in the world, especially the USA. He had developed a master/teacher relationship with Henry Wallace, who at the time was Secretary of State.
Wallace interestingly enough was the 33rd vice-president of the USA and born on October 7th had his Sun conjunct Roerich’s, born October 9th. Wallace was also born in 1888, in the ironic and curiously named, “Orient,” Iowa. He would later become VP for FDR and it’s through Wallace that the dollar gets a serious makeover, laced with symbols from the “All-Seeing-Eye” to the Owl, to the 13 Stars in the form of a pentagram. The man that contributed the magickal designs for the dollar? His spiritual teacher, Nicholas Roerich.
Roerich was held in such high esteem by his followers and brethren, that he had not only had his own minor planet/asteroid, 4426 Roerich named after him, but also had a major New York building with a penthouse called, “The Master Building” built for him as well.
So now that you have some background on Roerich and can understand his symbolic impact on our money, you might better appreciate his influence on “The Rite Of Spring.
What was The Rite Of Spring? Why did the crowd in Paris, witnessing it that night go berserk? Why did Stravinsky do it in the first place?
During that time in history, there had been a bit of a push towards the romantic ideal of indigenous cultures. Gaugin’s visions of Polynesian natives, especially the women, sent the world a twitter. Here’s a poster form the 1910 world’s fair in Brussels.
But if we see the Rite of Spring in a larger context, it’s a singular event that trumpets changes in the course of history that still reverberate to this very time.
In 1913, we see the formation of the Federal Reserve, the adoption of the Federal Income tax and the beginnings of WWI, which the US would eventually become entrenched in.
However, there’s even more to The Rite than just a dark clarion for the days of chaos ahead. Again, keep in mind that Roerich is one of the minds behind it as well as other esoteric masters like Kandinsky and Balanchine. The Rite was a ritual for the 20th Century itself, invoking a ritual sacrifice of innocence for the modern century to come.
There are thirteen movements in the Rite. In movements 10 through 13 the sequence is about (10) The harvesting of virgins, (11) The invocations of ancestors (spirits), (12) The entrusting of them into the care of “wise men,” and finally (13) The chosen one dances herself to death in the presence of the “old men” as a sacrifice in a sacrificial dance.
I might be reading a bit into it, but there’s a type of entrainment and mind control at play here and as well the slaughter of innocence. This was the ritualistic impact of “Le Sacre du Printemps.”
It is my estimation, that the virgin is Christianity as the naive ideal and innocence and her death paves the way for the “Novo Ordo Seclorum” or “New Order Of The Ages” which Roerich, would eventually imprint on every Federal Reserve Note. But she is also a symbol of Sophia or wisdom and that her ritual death would confer, in the presence of the “wise men” who would witness it with the essence of her life force and power.
It’s interesting that they chose the 29th of May for the performance. The Sun and Mercury were conjunct, with Saturn in Gemini (Sun/Saturn exact at the mystical 7 degree), which of course is in keeping with the mystery of duality and Gemini. The True Node was at 0 degrees Aries. Chiron was at 14 degrees Pisces and Black Moon Lilith at 9 degrees Pisces. The Black Moon Lilith, especially in Pisces, is important as we see it transposed against the sacrificial virgin of the final movement, death in “The Rite.” We could go on and on about the significance of 9. It’s a major number. From nine planets to Jesus appearing to his disciples nine times after his resurrection, nine is one of the most prominent numbers in spiritual, religious and mythical symbolism.
Even though we would round up to 10 if we started with 9 degrees for Pisces in the Sabian Symbols, if we start with 8, it then rounds up to 9. The Sabian Symbol for 8 Pisces/BML, jumps off the page as we look at in conjunction with The Rite;
PHASE 338 (PISCES 8°): A GIRL BLOWING A BUGLE. KEYNOTE: A call to participation in the service of the race, as an evolutionary crisis approaches
This symbolic picture presents another aspect of the emotional relationship between the individual and the collectivity of human beings. It can also be related to the old feminist movement or the present women’s liberation. In traditional symbolism the woman refers more specifically to the biological and psychic aspect of human life; she is seen primarily as the mother, and/or the intuitive or “psychic” type of person. A new race of human beings may well be slowly unfolding some of its potential of consciousness and fulfillment. The individual who envisions this evolutionary development “sounds the call.” He or she is both seer-herald and mutant. In that sense such a human being is both an individual true to his original nature and a dedicated person — dedicated to the future he or she holds in latency as does a seed in mutation.
At this third stage of the sixty-eighth five-fold sequence the two preceding phases blend in a new form of consecration of the individual to the Whole. Tomorrow acts through today; it SUMMONS men to rebirth.
Pretty interesting eh?
I asked Sabian Symbol expert, Lynda Hill about the significance of the previous symbol and she likens it to the South Node, so it is the energy approaching the exact degree symbol itself. So 8 degrees is an essential reference point as we round it up to 9.
As the first day of the new year unfolds, keep in mind that the “Le Sacre Du Temps” aka “The Rite Of Spring” was in essence, a summoning ritual for the whole of the 20th Century itself. Followed by Roerich’s second act as the symbolic engraver of our national script.
With all the Aries energy in the air, I’ll be back up and writing in the next day with scopes soon to follow.
It’s official. Saturn and Mercury are waltzing backwards and the sky has been doused by a cadre of water sprites dispatched from Triton. Did you know that Triton has an atmosphere? Did you know that unlike the other 12 moons of Neptune, Triton has a retrograde orbit? So I guess it had to reverse itself right into the first paragraph. The thirteen moons of Neptune follow the mystical sequence of 12/13. 13 is the 12 disciples + 1 and a fitting equation since we’re talking about the planet which rules Pisces. Speaking of which . . .
In just three days, Pope Benedict will get the hell out of Vatican City as quickly and as anonymously as possible. Maybe they should rent Robert Blake to play his double for the day, while Ratzinger jumps ship out the side door, dressed as an Italian ice vendor. It’s generally a bad career move to vacate before one’s time is up. Just ask Saddam, The Shah, Gaddafi and Osho. It ain’t long before you’re down and rushed off to some obscure hospital somewhere, only to never to see the light of day again. I suppose they can keep him around if the lights go out, kinda like what they’re doing with Sharon, preserving his psychopathic genius for the time when they can upload his marvelous malevolence to the exonet.
But this is not about darkness or screeds of injustice wrapped in cynical jest, lancing you with symbols, piercing the membrane of awareness, while desperately trying to wrest you from the trance. This is about remembering who you are and where you came from. With Mercury, the messenger of the gods flying in reverse, winging along the path of the Fisher King, it’s all about re-collection.
The one piece I left out of my Aquarian series, the one I’m saving for the e-book, is when Uranus and Neptune were in Aquarius on the eleventh of September, in 2001. On that day, the Moon was in Gemini as was
Saturn, firmly representing the duality of the day.
Mars, in all of its’s martial fury was in Capricorn and Black Moon Lilith was at two degrees Pisces, cast out of the garden of the Christian Age, while Uranus and Neptune in the sign of the rebel found their home in the nadir of chart, blistering our consciousness and for a brief period of time, drawing the world closer together through tragedy, united against a shadowy cave dweller, hidden somewhere in the remote regions of Afghanistan. You’re either with us or against us.
It was a “clear break” from the past, which enabled the United States to adopt a pre-emptive strike mentality. While the Kennedy assassination altered the timeline, it was in need of some serious bolting down and on the morning of the 12th, the day after, a new world had been born out of the rubble of asbestos and human dust. It was a world that was about security and not freedom. It was a world that would spawn color revolutions fed by the ideology of an Aquarian professor from UMass (Gene Sharp), who would supply the tactics necessary to stage, “democratic coups.”
We have to go back before then on the current of memory, back to a time when our humanity and the principles we did our best to embody were sacred. Back to a time where our values reflected the order and the will of heaven. Before they split the atom and the collective soul, we were whole. I’m not talking a chicken-in-every-pot, and a car in every garage (though you can stop there too), but somewhere in the recesses of our hearts, where every cell has within it the library of our spiritual genesis, wrapped and twisted like a knotted tale, waiting to be untangled.
In there, we know exactly who we are and where we came from. We understand suffering and joy equally, wishing none of the former, and inviting plenty of the latter. We don’t need wetware or synoptical nodes to jack us in or plumb our depths. It’s all there. From the fall of Atlantis to the rise of Yeshua, the story of our beginning and our end is encoded in the matrices of our blood. But just in case you forgot, let’s take time to remember, together, exactly who we are at our most compassionate, wisest, warmest, funniest, fullest and divine best.
Last night at the Academy Awards, the women’s bathroom was backed up and overflowed–a surreal symbol of Mercury retrograde Pisces getting played out–the true feminine denied. In case you’re not getting it, the holy mother was saying that Babylon is full of shit and her maidens are emotionally incontinent.
Aquarian, Seth McFarlane continued on with his cute little war on sensibility.
Michelle Obama dropped in of course, reminding us, yet again, that the Obama’s are at the center of everything, everywhere, all the time.
But this isn’t about that. It’s about poetry, music, the stunning grandeur of the planet, the last remnants of food untainted by alien seed or synthetic skies.
It’s about feeling safe in the night, with a lover next to you, knowing that in your heart of hearts, you lived your day exceedingly well and that a divine flame fills you both with a faith beyond death and that there is no room for fear of shadows, liars, murderers and thieves. We can respect the danger, but the love and the fear cannot co-exist.
This is what I am hear to remind you of during this Mercury Retrograde in Pisces, your rightful and divine place amongst the cosmos with the creator.
It’s funny, whenever trends start to peek, I’ve almost always gone in the other direction. I’m not sure if this is yet another manifestation of Chiron in Aquarius retrograde and I’m just staking out some contrarian terrain, or I’m sensing the collapse of one system before it crumbles and falls, but for whatever reason, I’m more and more aware of the space that goes against the grain of our times. That’s not to say that I’m retreating into some luddite fantasy world, yearning for 1950 all over again, but there’s an emergent sense of values and internal order that cohere to a different dimension that I’m often occupying in the flotsam and jetsam of pop-culture and bizarre exo-politics.
I can’t tell you how many conversations I’ve had recently with people who are pretty tired and fed up with the dominant culture, ramming, ramming, and ramming at the gates of their sanity and sanctity. From false flags to fake boobs, they’ve had enough.
There’s no going back in a physical sense. There’s no Plymouth Rock or event horizon stretching out into the infinitude of the western sky. Those places are gone. There’s only a way through the swamps of confusion and the terrors of tyranny. Somewhere inside, there’s a faint beacon that can take you home, if you have the heart to listen and follow it without fail. Along the way, you might meet others with the very same destination and if you do, know you are truly blessed.
For every injustice, do something good when you can.
For every slight, rejoice for the opportunity to wrestle with compassion and forgiveness.
We have to be bigger than our current milieu, because that’s just the way we were wired and somehow forgot along the way.
I wonder what’s making me feel this way. Maybe its Mercury retrograde doing the prompting of my puritanical Moon, in all it’s fullness, cresting my MC, conjuncting my Sun. Or maybe it’s the Biblical winds, lashing out at the landscape at 50MPH, conjuring images of near Earth giants whipping the atmosphere into an apocalyptic frenzy. Whatever the case, it’s reminding me, to remind you about your deepest spiritual strata. I hope it worked.
Speaking of reminders, Wednesday, I’ll have psychic medium, Sharon Johns on Navigating The Astrological Matrix, an appropriate person to show up when we’re all awash in the Piscean swirl. That will be Wednesday, 3/28 at 12PM Central.
I’ve often wondered why Black History Month is in February and what it has to do with the sign of Aquarius? With the risk of sounding like conspiricist, I think it has to do with the Aquarian ideal/image of the au currant version of the black race. I spoke about this with SiStar MyRah on our Super Bowl Review. It’s a pretty compelling dialog apart from the symbolic breakdown of the game itself. In the last half-hour, we delved into a rarely discussed topic; racial mixing.
It began when I noted the percentage of commercials on television that had black males and or families depicted as the majority, a place at one point in time occupied by whites. I also noted that most of the males looked like some iteration of Barack Obama, light skinned and metro-sexualized. On some level, this makes commercial sense to me, since selling a product could have much more resonance if you modeled the model on the president, who has unmistakably, the biggest brand in the land. But SiStar MyRah took it one step further. She talked about this as being the acceptable model of being black. Look around at most black american stars, like Beyonce, Rhianna and Nicki Minnaj. They’re more golden than black, while equally, if not more talented artists like Fantasia Barrino, (Hey Missy Elliot where are you?) aren’t nearly as heavily promoted. SiStar MyRah called them, “hybrids.”
As I deftly do my best to discuss race without falling and getting fried by the third rail, my sense, is, is that lighter skinned, mixed-race-version is the physical manifestation of the blending of one race, one color, one collective variant of a golden species, which would ultimately break with social, racial and historical identities, and as a result, would be about the future and not the past. It would be more than just a symbolic element of a planet peopled by one color and vibration. It would be a physical incarnation of the Aquarian ideal, the melanized version of a racial alchemy, turning the lead of a number of races into the gold of one.
This, in some ways would reflect a form of completion, since, according to Blavatsky, the second root race, after the first (amoeba like beings) had golden skin. This of course would not align with Blavatsky’s overall vision of the root races, which sees the sixth and seventh root races as the Australo-American, a psychic race of beings from Australia, New Zealand and California. This vision of a golden race is something that has also been written about and seen by channelers and remote viewers as being the face of Terra in the future.
Now, on one level, albeit a fairly cynical one, it might be viewed as high-level eugenics practiced through intense social programming, which would highlight and promote mixing of all races, and through which new codes of behavior, new ethics and even a new religion could be installed, thus eliminating the God of the Piscean age. The implementation of the new world religion has already begun and it emerges from two, separate directions which both, promote an alternative version of the post-christian God.
From the left side of the coast, there’s the new age version of the universe, or cosmos, or source that uses texts like the Book of Urantia and Course of Miracles, laced with heavy doses of Theosophy, Hinduism, Buddhism and polyamoristic tantra. It’s The Lightworkers Union, Local 1111.
From the other side, there’s a much darker version co-mingling with it. This would be the re-birth of illuministic, ritual occult practice, which is really illuminati magic as fashion statement, cliched hand signs and a philosophy that encourages a watered-down version of “Do as thou wilt.” It comes down through the hip-hop pyramid and trickles all the way to Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber.
Together, these two variants combine, just as skin tones do, to form some sort of ideological fusion, a blended frequency spectrum of beliefs with the individual squarely at the center of it.
Of course, Barack Obama is the high priest, the pharaonic mediator between both worlds, welcoming the golden skinned goddesses, Beyonce and Alicia Keyes into the White House and rubbing elbows with J-Hovah, while he’s flashing his magic smile to the beaming acolytes of Marianne Williamson, Neal Donald Walsh, Deepak Chopra and Barbara Marx-Hubbard. Here, we have an ideological synthesis and mixing, a hybrid spirituality with a new high priest, himself a living agency of the planetary experiment in the manipulation of consciousness and race. With his Hawaiian legacy, he is the “rainbow bridge.”
I’ve also found it interesting that whenever Black History Month rolls around, it’s almost always the same cast of characters that are celebrated and feted. It’s no coincidence that Rosa Parks gets huge play. She’s also an Aquarian and she went to the Highander School in Tennessee, where she, along with Martin Luther King was trained in social justice and Marxist ideology. Her storming the front seat of the bus was no act of individual defiance. It was a staged and calculated act of social disobedience.
And while racism of any sort is repugnant, one of the things that segregation did foster, was the need for black owned businesses and economic drivers to develop in the dark shadow of Jim Crow laws.
James Brown is rarely celebrated during Black History month and yet the godfather of soul, was at one time the largest owner of black owned radio stations and even instituted his own stamp/value/rebate program with “Brown Stamps,” an offshoot of S&H Green Stamps and Blue Chip Stamps. Brown had a strong vision of economically empowering the Black community–that was until the government and the social programs of the Great Society became the de-facto parent of the inner cities. Combine that with the death of many, fine young black males during the Vietnam War and the flooding of opiates into the inner cities and, well, you know the rest of the story.
James Brown had survived a brutal car crash and lost a son along the way. While he was still the hardest working man in show business, he sold his radio stations and got out of the empowerment game.
Another, powerful figure that we don’t hear much about, in spite of his iconic status is Bob Marley, which is interesting, since Marley is the genetic inheritor of both Anglo and African DNA, an early adopter of the race of the golden light and an Aquarian to boot.
Marley’s one world, one love message is Aquarian to the core. He was rapidly becoming one of the most influential people on the planet regardless of skin color or occupation. But Marley was waking up and waking others along with him. His classic track, “Babylon System” talks about the planetary enslavement program that has been in place since the high-unholy-days of Babylon;
Survival Babylon System We refuse to be What you wanted us to be; We are what we are: That’s the way (way) it’s going to be. you don’t know! You can’t educate i For no equal opportunity: (talkin’ ’bout my freedom) talkin’ ’bout my freedom, People freedom (freedom) and liberty! Yeah, we’ve been trodding on the winepress much too long: Rebel, rebel! Yes, we’ve been trodding on the winepress much too long: Rebel, rebel!
Those are the type of words that get peoples attention, in many ways. He’s not talking about Cristal or Courvosier, or Bentley. He’s addressing spiritual warfare in the most clear language there can be. And just in case you miss it in the first verse, Marley keeps it going in the second.
Babylon system is the vampire, yea! (vampire) Suckin’ the children day by day, yeah! Me say: de babylon system is the vampire, falling empire, Suckin’ the blood of the sufferers, yea-ea-ea-ea-e-ah! Building church and university, wo-o-ooh, yeah! - Deceiving the people continually, yea-ea! Me say them graduatin’ thieves and murderers; Look out now: they suckin’ the blood of the sufferers (sufferers). Yea-ea-ea!
Marley would contract a treatable form of cancer, in the foot of all places, which is ruled by his own sign; Aquarius. Marley would get terrible advice on the treating of it. Dubmaster, certified wild-man and Wailers producer, Lee “Scratch” Perry would later accuse Island Records label head, Chris Blackwell of putting a curse on Marley so that he would die and that Blackwell could take the lion’s share of Marley’s royalties.
Marley was imperfect, but he was a giant and he bridged color, race, class and culture in a historical fashion. He was rapidly becoming the same type of prophet he often sang about. In some ways, the Aquarian vision itself, not the falsified version of a synthetic system of applied economic theory and symbolic enslavement, but a real one, arising out of the human heart in an organic fashion, is inherent in the sound and vision of Marley’s music.
Another, pivotal and important figure that is also rarely mentioned or discussed during Black History month is one, Fela Anikulapo Kuti. While Haile Sellasie courted the British Magistrate, the League of Nations and later the UN, Fela Kuti had a vision of Africa that had nothing to do with the globalist, hegemonic agenda. Kuti wanted his own Nigeria to be a model country, a strong state that could anchor the independence of African power and consciousness and be a model for a post-colonialist Africa that was seemingly being ruled by proxy through puppet dictators and presidents on the globalists dole. They were of course supplied with plenty of arms to fortify their often brutal rule of law.
Kuti favored a type of pan-Africanism that would join various states under one Africa. This vision was branded as a type of socialism, but there isn’t any historical or lyrical connection to Kuti and Marxism. His brand of socialism was a type of geo-political unity that supported African and not imperial interests.
Kuti formed his own community/colony called the “Kalakuta Republic,” which was based on polygamy and Yoruba. As a result, he was a modern-day-Solomon with twenty-seven-wives. By the way, if you haven’t noticed, this was about 180 degrees from the current dawning of the “golden age.”
Kuti was a continental separatist and that boys and girls is bad for business. He would survive a number of attacks on his life and eventually die of AIDS related symptoms. Like Marley before him, he would eschew western medicine for treatment.
But perhaps there’s more to this connection with Aquarius/February being Black History month.
Back in the late 90′s I had the great pleasure to meet Kodwo Eshun, a gifted writer with an infectious and lively spirit. I first saw Kodwo in the Iara Lee documentary on electronic music, “Modulations.” Eshun, along with Robert Moog stole the show. Eshun’s ability to articulate electronic music into prose resulted in something called, “Sonic Fiction” out of which sprang an incredibly important journey into the future frequencies of jazz, electronic and funk music. Eshun’s essays on Sun Ra, George Clinton, Jimi Hendrix, DJ Spooky, Wu Tang, Underground Resistance, Drexciya, Juan Atkins, Derrick May and other pioneers of a futuristic, afrocentrism in music was astounding and his prose was as dense and layered as a Funkadelic mind jam. Eshun’s work has contributed greatly to a school of music, image and text called, “Afrofuturism.”
For me, in many ways, this typifies not just the outside version of Black History month as a form of Aquarian expression, but the essence of the Aquarian spirit as a vibration that connects our ancient roots and rhythms across races, spaces and times, catapulting them into the future via the magic of wordsound, incantations that reverberate with a musical language all their own, creating an imaginary landscape that uses myth and narrative as a jump seat into hyper-dimensional possibility. This is the place where the imagination is divine and all beings can revel in the complexity and nuance of spirit, through all of its manifestations, without judgment, without prejudice and without the not-so-subtle commands to surrender ones autonomy and heritage in favor of some grand, social-experimental-gene wipe where diversity bleeds into one, macro-miasmic-monad and a myriad of cultural traditions and riches are lost in the mix. In modern recording, the compression of sound is the audio correlation, where the highs and lows are crunched into the broad middle of the track, so that the sound is loud and punchy, jumping out of the speakers, grabbing your attention, but sacrificing the essential nuances of the track.
Now it might just be, that when the Pleiadians finally land, they’ll be greeted by a bunch of people that look a lot like Amber Rose and Miles Austin and maybe they’ll have peace in their hearts and vastly open minds. if that’s the way this unfolds as a physical expression of oneness in the Aquarian Age, then so be it. But if I were the architects of this planetary re-shaping, I might be tad concerned, because they just might be breeding their own annihilation through a species that can channel love at such a high pitch, that any kind of anger, retribution and malice will not be able to co-exist in the same atmosphere. Perhaps these will truly be “Destiny’s Children” and if it ends the top down tyranny as a result, without hesitation, I say, bring it on.
“A reformation means that masses of our people have reached the point of disillusionment with past ways and values. They don’t know what will work but they do know that the prevailing system is self-defeating, frustrating, and hopeless. They won’t act for change, but won’t strongly oppose those who do. The time is then ripe for revolution.” (Saul Alinsky)
Does, the above quote, sound familiar? Does it sound like perhaps the current milieu in which most people are deeply polarized or standing around with their palms up in the air, staring back at one another in utter disbelief? To quote one Talking Head, “Well, how did I get here”?
As the social fires of the Sixties blazed, and the very real fires of the inner cities burned down the likes of Detroit and Watts, a revolution was underway and it wasn’t being led by Clever, Ayers, Rubin, Hoffman or Dorn. It was taking place from within The White House itself.
With John F. Kennedy and the threat of a sovereign America, no longer in the oval office, Lyndon Baines Johnson aka LBJ set about to change the course of America with the most ambitious undertaking since the New Deal. Johnson would create “The Great Society” which was the second, massive ramp up of social services in the USA of the 20th Century.
It began in earnest in 1964, while the public was still reeling from the senseless death of their president, their King Arthur, the heir to Camelot. In the despondent fog of the collective trance, a new program was quickly being inserted. At this time Saturn was still in Aquarius and out of it, groups and agencies like VISTA the NEA, Job Corps, etc., were born out of the Great Society, mostly based on a dictum/mandate called; “The War On Poverty.” It also led to something that had never happened before in the history of the USA; The federal government’s incursion into public education via, “The Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965.” With it’s passage, it meant that the federal government would have a seat at the table and a say in shaping the hearts and minds of the youth of America.
LBJ was anything but an Aquarian with a stellium in Virgo, but he did have Chiron in Aquarius, as did the aforementioned, Saul Alinsky, which gave them the impetus and propensity to fight for the underdogs and have nots.
There are a number of things that came out of the Great Society that have been worthy contributions to the betterment of Americans lives, like Medicare, but it was a pandora’s box that opened the floodgates to a type of radicalism that mirrored the rebelliousness of the Aquarian ideal of revolution at any cost, by any means necessary.
While Johnson addressed poverty in the formulation of “The Great Society” opening the portal to the welfare state, two professors from The Columbia University of Social Work were not satisfied with the bones that were thrown the poor, which is how they viewed the welfare system at the time, a payoff of sorts, hush money for an interminable condition. Their names were Richard Cloward and Frances Fox-Piven. Their goal? To use strategies inspired by Aquarian radical, Saul Alinsky, and test the inherent flaws of the system against itself, since Alinsky had presciently determined that no system or person could live up to it’s own moral code or belief. Put enough pressure on either and both would crack or collapse under the inherent flaw of all things being imperfect. However, the provocateur knows this and exploits it angles and through indirect means.
Cloward and Piven had decided to work this theory. They first aired it publically in the May, 1966 edition of The Nation in an essay titled, “The Weight of the Poor: A Strategy to End Poverty.”
Cloward and Piven recruited a militant activist from New York’s lower east side named “George Wiley.” Although Wiley was a Pisces (2/26/31) with his Mercury in Aquarius and Moon in Gemini, he had the tools to implement a divide and conquer strategy while being inspired/led by his need to channel his revolutionary thoughts. His chart is an interesting exposition in the dynamics of opposition. Wiley had Venus and Saturn, conjunct in Capricorn (21/19), which opposed his Mars and Pluto in Cancer (28/18). Wiley was driven by extreme opposites and used the system (Capricorn) to fund and organize his need to nurture on a social level (Cancer).
Wiley was no shrinking violet. He and Cloward-Piven targeted liberal, New York Mayor, John Lindsay. Lindsay was a Republican only by name. But it was enough. His term as mayor was marked by a series of strikes that debilitated New York. The strikes were strategic and Cloward-Piven, along with Wiley, followed suit. Wiley demanded that people in New York, not only get the welfare due to them, but more. Wiley and his charges threatened violence in the streets if their demands weren’t met.
Once the model was established in New York, Wiley and his group, “The National Welfare Rights Organization (NWRO), which started in 1967, would have 22,500, dues paying families by 1969. In the September, 27th, 1970 edition of the New York Times, here is what the Times said about Wiley and the NWRO and Wiley’s tactics;
“There have been sit-ins in legislative chambers, including a United States Senate committee hearing, mass demonstrations of several thousand welfare recipients, school boycotts, picket lines, mounted police, tear gas, arrests – and, on occasion, rock-throwing, smashed glass doors, overturned desks, scattered papers and ripped-out phones.”
Wiley’s methods, were radically successful. Sol Stern from “The City Journal” wrote the following;
“From 1965 to 1974, the number of single-parent households on welfare soared from 4.3 million to 10.8 million, despite mostly flush economic times. By the early 1970s, one person was on the welfare rolls in New York City for every two working in the city’s private economy.“
It floored New City’s budget and economy. In 1975, the city of New York declared bankruptcy. The state nearly followed it into insolvency.
Cloward-Piven’s model worked. And they weren’t done.
The next thing they went after were voter rolls.
Three separate groups, two founded by Cloawrd-Piven acolytes, ACORN and Project Vote along with Cloward-Piven’s own, Human SERVE, worked towards the re-vamping of voting regulations, which led to Clinton’s passage of the “Motor-Voter” bill, which both the left and the right have used to flood the precints with dead wood, multiple voters, illegal voters, etc. It created a flaw in the system, which has been evidently exploited in the last three general elections for the POTUS.
Richard Cloward was born on 12/25/26 and had Jupiter in Aquarius at 24 degrees, just two degrees off of Wiley’s Mercury, which made the two a formidable 1-2 punch, with Wiley carrying out the Aquarian strategy handed down by Cloward in his quest to expand the Aquarian revolution into the realms of communistic principles like the abolishment of all private income, for one, universal salary for all. This, was their goal.
Like Wiley, he too had Venus in Capricorn and Pluto in Cancer.
Though I can’t get an exact time, Frances Fox-Piven was a Libra with Moon either in late Aquarius or early Capricorn. In any case, her Moon would set her up as a sympathetic emotional node in the triumvirate of the main progenitors of their break the system strategy.
All of this was born out of Luciferian/Aquarian Alinsky’s playbook.
This insurgency was the same type of tactics that drove the Russian peasants into the hands of the Bolsheviks and all of it was born out of that critical Uranus in Aquarius cycle, which begat the Russian Revolution.
Just an aside, The French Revolution, which lasted nearly ten years, was officially kicked off with the storming of the Bastille on 7/11/1789. Where Pluto was in what sign? Aquarius of course, at 18 degrees, just two degrees off of where Uranus was, when the Russian revolution began.
So the question then becomes; Are cycles and movements manifestations of collective thought and programs downloaded from the event matrix, or are they driven, even consciously at times by forces aware of their esoteric application?
And what is this version of the Age of Aquarius anyway? Is it a revolt against God? Is it a grand agit-prop handed down through the mind of a burning deity that champions the have-nots, the downtrodden sub-species fallen from the grace of the supreme overlord who supposedly turned his back on them when they stepped outside the circle of trust, in a garden long ago?
Is this the only version of the age of Aquarius, some watered-down new age model of socialism with rainbow unicorns and free marriage for all species regardless of sex?
“Change” is an Aquarian axiom that’s been franchised by power brokers who employ it as a strategy for eliminating the competition and securing their power base. You know that the heads of the politburo never had to settle for cold potato soup or winters in Siberia–fresh meat and refuge on the Black Sea in the cold of January for them!
Ultimately, is this version of the Aquarian age an age where everyone is leveled and equal rights are substituted for freedom and tolerance for real compassion?
And what are we forced, either through direct confrontation and law making, or through subtle coercion via social engineering to endure?
Is gay marriage enough to slake the Aquarian thirst for equality or will the next phase become sex rights for children and adults that wish to partake with them?
Where does it end or will it end at all? And is there a positive expression for the Aquarian Age?
Stay tuned as we begin to move out of the shadow of The Aquarian Age.
Just five hours to game time and I have to get in a quick post. Spent almost all of last night bolting down the newsletter, where I go into the ritual of the Super Bowl in a more in-depth fashion. There are some very interesting aspects to note about the sky at kick-off in New Orleans, Polaris, the pole star will be at the center of the horizon, appearing in the sky, halfway up to the dark apex of night. Just to the left of Polaris, the tail of Draco hangs and appears to drop into the very Earth itself. The brightest star in the Draco constellation is “Thuban.” It was actually the pole star prior to Polaris moving into, uh, well, the pole position. It was considerably brighter then, The Great Pyramis at Khufu was oriented to “Thuban” according to archaeologists, even though the pyramid would have been built around 2200 BCE, about 500 years after the reign of Khufu. E.W. Bullinger, author of The Witness To The Stars (1893) had this to say about “Thuban.”;
“Thuban (Heb), the subtle. Some 4,620 years ago it was the Polar Star. It is still a very important star in nautical reckonings, guiding the commerce of the seas, and thus ‘the god of this world’ is represented as winding in his contortions round the pole of the world, as if to indicate his subtle influence in all worldly affairs.”
The english translation of “Thuban” is “snake” or “dragon.” Archibald Sayce, the famed Biritish Assyriologist had this to essentially said that Thuban was a star of great devotion and importance in the astrological/astronomical work of Sargon I, King of Agade, where he made Thuban the pole star aka “Tir-An-na” (which is likely where we derive the word “tyranny”) and the Life of Heaven; Dayan Same, the Judge of Heaven; and Dayan Sidi, the Favorable Judge,- all representing the god Caga Gilgati, whose name it also bore. Also cited for this star, Thuban, Draconis Dayan Esiru, the Prospering Judge, or the Crown of Heaven, and Dayan Shisha, the Judge Directing, as having the highest seat amongst the heavenly host. Here is what the great Ptolemy had to say about Thuban according to Vivian Robson;
“According to Ptolemy the bright stars are like Saturn and Mars. Draco gives an artistic and emotional but somber nature, a penetrating and analytical mind, much travel and many friends, but danger of robbery and accidental poisoning. It gives craft, ingenuity, and valor. The Ancients said that when a comet was th here, poison was scattered over the world. By the Kabalists it is associated with the Hebrew letter Mem and the 13 Tarot Trump, Death”.
Lastly, Thuban might actually bear some symbolic significance to the game itself and not just a darker, ritual import. The classical astrologer, George C. Noonan chimes in with some interesting correlations for Niner fans;
“When rising, Thuban indicates prospectors of gold and silver or those who are ministers of money (this might include accountants, clerical workers, cashiers etc. nowadays). If setting and If Mars is conjunct the Descendant or in harsh aspect with it, it is said to presage the native being burned in his own house or killed by public execution.”
Later in this piece, we’ll determine if Thuban is ascending or falling.
From a mundane perspective, at the start of the game, the ASC is in the sign of Leo (Sun/Gold). Most of the key players in this game are on the other fixed point of Scorpio, Taurus and Aquarius. Both Frank Gore and Ray Lewis (Taurus) will be front and center early in the game with Taurus on the MC. Lewis’ emotionality is not a put on. His chart is heavily doused with water, having Venus and Saturn in Cancer and Mars in Pisces. He’ll have a strong Saturn/Saturn trine today and the Scorpio Moon will trine his Mars. Ray Lewis will be pumped up for this game (states the obvious) and he has incredible, emotional support flowing in his direction. Mars is at 1 degree Pisces today and while this won’t affect Lewis as much (though he will get a hit), it does impact Ray Rice, whose Sun is at 2 degrees Pisces. So Ray will have a Sun/Mars conjunction. Plenty of Juice there. Look for him to have an extremely strong game. One last thing about the other Ray though. Lewis will have a Sun/Moon opposition as well and this, in fixed signs could be trouble for him, including muscle strain or pulls near the sacral region. With Scorpio, Colin Kaepernick, he sizes up as Lewis’ other, his shadow and it will be Lewis that will likely shadow Kaepernic on the filed today.
Immovable object meets irresistible force.
Both men will have their moments, but there will be one, where Kaepernick makes Ray look his age in a very apparent fashion.
Speaking of Kapernick, his Sun starts out at the nadir of the chart, which means potentially another slow start for the Niners. But as the game progresses, his Sun shifts the more mercurial 3rd House, where his running and passing really take off from the third quarter on.
He has Sun in Scorpio with Pluto conjunct his Sun by a one degree orb. Transiting Saturn is conjuncting both and then there’s that stinger moon. Throw in mutual reception of Pluto in Capricorn to his Sun and Kaeprnick is ready to make a star turn. Based on astrology, this is a moment of destiny. The only thing that could derail him is making risky decisions, want too much, succumbing to the desire of the Scorpio Moon.
Later in the game, as the ASC moves into Virgo, Ed Reed and Michael Crabtree’s numbers move to the fore, with emphasis on them in 4th quarter. Linebacker, Novarro Bowman’s, Gemini Sun is poised to reap the benefits of Gemini on the MC. Look for him to make a key play late in the game. Lastly as the game winds down, the all-important Part-O-Fortune or Pars Fortuna is in Sagittarius. Niner fans, you may not want to hear this, but it could come down to your kicker, Sag, David Akers to win this game.
The Ravens are riding a collective “wave of destiny” vibe and there’s not telling how the gods of the league want Ray Lewis to end his career, so there’s some heavily weighted intangibles on their side.
On a side note, digging around my research last night, I stumbled upon the official and unofficial patron saints of New Orleans. On the official side, we have St. Expedite, an enigmatic saint, of which very little is known. He was a Roman (Italian) soldier who denounced Rome and became a citizen of the Kingdom of God. He’s always portrayed with a cross instead of sword in his hand. On a symbolic level, this could be Kaepernick, but here, I believe it’s Flacco, the Ravens QB of Italian, descent. The other, un-official saint of New Orleans, is Baron Samedi, guardian of the underworld. In essence, he’s a devil figure and very, very popular around Mardi Gras, which is where we are now, in the middle of a two-week-Mardi Gras break. Samedi is usually portrayed with one half of his face white, with the other black, which symbolizes duality. Samedi=Kaepernick and his deep Scorpionic, underworld energies. In fact, one of the tattoos on his arm, from the bible, essentially says that, “my gift is my curse.” Draco, Samedi, Scorpio, Kaepernick. and based almost solely on Kaepernick’s big moment chart, I’m going with the Niners in a 27-24 victory, especially since Thuban/Draco, is ascending and in the sign of Virgo at game time. Thuban rules prospectors and in Super Bowl 47, The Niners strike gold.
“Lest we forget at least an over the shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins – or which is which), the very first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom – Lucifer.” (Saul Alinksy)
The 20th century “might” be known as the century of capitalism, where the oligarchic, titanic elites of the banking families and their minions made enormous gains early in the game. From the late 1800’s up through the great depression, the robber-baron clique drove their claws deep into the heart of the American economy, building out the early infrastructures of industry, from coal, to oil, to electricity, to the rail, shipping and automobile industries, the names of Rockefeller, Getty, Morgan, DuPont, Mellon and Carnegie realized that there was big money to be made in the vestal virgin resources of America and it’s people. Nearly all of them were born during Pluto in Aries, a deeply driven social indicator of generational energy and focus. They were going to get ahead and make their fortune at almost any cost. Pluto in Aries spawned a group of individuals given over to a forceful single-mindedness that might have been what the country needed at the time. They became synonymous with being “self-made men” and here is where that mythology is born; the scions of Pluto in Aries. But they weren’t the only ones.
After suffering a major setback at the hands of Andrew Jackson, the Rothschild family were dead set on opening their central bank in the USA and they would eventually draft the American magnets of industry through their man on the ground, Jacob Schiff (Kuhn, Loeb and Company). With Schiff and Rothschild inserting themselves into the manifest destiny script, it only took 13 years into the 20th century to establish the Federal Reserve and the national income tax. This, thanks to the devils of Jekyll Island (the American oligarchs), became a reality on 12/23/13, signed away while most Americans were home for the holidays, praying to Jesus and Mary, not knowing what hell was coming there way.
But any business enterprise worth it’s salt is always researching and developing, working on different models. While Satan welded the mind forged manacles of American industry, in the oil fields, coal mines and steel mills, half-way across the world, a new model was being inserted into the collective consciousness.
Beginning on March 8th, 1917 and culminating on November 8th in the same year, the Bolshevik Revolution occurred. It did so while Uranus was in Aquarius, ruling planet/sign. This is the first iteration of the Aquarian Age of the 20th century, with all the hallmarks and talking points that would appeal to the masses at the time. But this was no, ordinary, garden-variety-revolution. In fact, the very same Jacob Schiff was rumored to be supporting the likes of Leon Trotsky, in NYC. Was the capitalist organizer on the ground in the US for the Rothschild family was also funding and organizing the Russian revolution? This from “The Creature Of Jekyll Island” by G. Edward Griffin;
TROTSKY WAS A MULTIPLE AGENT
”One of the best known Russian revolutionaries at that time was Leon Trotsky. In January of 1916 Trotsky was expelled from France and came to the United States. It has been claimed that Jacob Schiff paid his expenses. There is no documentation to substantiate that claim, but the circumstantial evidence does point to a wealthy donor in New York. He remained for several months, while writing for a Russian socialist paper, the Novy Mir (New World) and giving revolutionary speeches at mass meetings in New York City. According to Trotsky himself, on many occasions a chauffeured limousine was placed at his service by a wealthy friend, identified as Dr. M. ”
Trotsky’s other name was Lev Davidovitch.
” On March 23, 1917 a mass meeting was held at Carnegie Hall to celebrate the abdication of Nicolas II, which meant the overthrow of Tsarist rule in Russia. Thousands of socialists, Marxists, nihilists and anarchists attended to cheer the event. The following day there was published on page two of the New York Times a telegram from Jacob Schiff, which had been read to this audience. He expressed regrets, that he could not attend and then described the successful Russian revolution as “…what we had hoped and striven for these long years”. (Mayor Calls Pacifists Traitors, The New York Times, March 24, 1917, p. 2)
In later years, Schiff’s son, John was quoted in “The New York American Journal” that his father had donated some $20,000,000.00 to the communist revolution.
Trotsky had been dispatched in April of 1917, from New York, with $10,000 on his person to return to Petrograd and take things to the next level. He was stopped in Halifax and detained by Canadian officials, recognizing that he could be a threat. There he stayed until phone calls from Washington, DC freed him up and sent him on his way to complete his mission.
The revolution would be mostly complete on 11/8/17, just one day off of Trotsky’s birthday, 11/7. Mars was in Virgo, which in some ways would exemplify the energy of the proletariat, but Venus was also in Capricorn, at 0 degrees, which would indicate that relationships would be anything but communal. Communism would have it’s own, inherently, top-down hierarchy within the politburo. Uranus, of course would typify the spirit of the collective in Aquarius, and thus have the secular, humanistic aspects of the Aquarian Age. Jupiter was in Gemini, at 9 degrees. The first elections would be held from 11/12-14 with Jupiter being at 11 degrees Gemini. Hear we have the double mirror of the twins with the number 11. The Sabian Symbol for this degree is quite interesting based on the events of the times.
PHASE 71 (GEMINI 11°): NEWLY OPENED LANDS OFFER THE PIONEER NEW OPPORTUNITIES FOR EXPERIENCE. KEYNOTE:The power and joy of new beginnings.
”These “newly opened lands” can refer to any as yet unexperienced field of potential activity at any level — material, emotional, mental or super mental. We are now dealing with the third level of experience, at which individuality — or at least the ego character — operates more definitely. While in the preceding phases much was said concerning the powers of the mind, this mind was essentially based on the collective patterns of a culture and a society. Now, at this third level, we find the human being essentially engaged in his personal and particular struggle for full and effective individualization. And the initial realization he has to experience is that he has reached a potentially virgin field of consciousness and activity. He is facing the unfamiliar. Anything could happen.
This is the first stage of the fifteenth five-fold sequence of symbols. Having conquered, at least to some extent, the collective and material energies of nature and society, man has become relatively “separate” from the past. He faces the future. Every step ahead should show him RISING TO THE OCCASION.”
Out of this revolution, the duality of both consciousness and economy will be set into play. Russia would become the red threat and the shadow of the USA in two wars (Korea and Vietnam) and would drive the engine of the military industrial complex, the growth of intelligence agencies and a faux threat, the great bogeyman and shadow other. Here, we see duality cast into lead, informing nearly all of our activities, from crawling under desks during the cold war, to the rise of the middle-class radical factions of SDS and the Weather Underground. It’s interesting to note that during this month, with the Sun in Aquarius, Jupiter in Gemini, a new TV series, “The Americans” will debut on FX.
“The Americans” stars Kerri Russell and Matthew Rhys. It’s interesting to note that Rhys’ birth date is the same date that is used for commemorating the end of the revolution, 11/8. The series will make it’s debut on 1/30, when Gemini goes direct at six degrees.
The premise of the series is that the KGB has infiltrated the lives of Americans, agents and spies trained in Moscow to understand and know American life and then leading a revolution from within. Here is what executive producer, Joel Fields has to say about series;
” “It might be a little different to believe and get used to, but we want you to root for the KGB. They’re going to try to get the Soviets to win the Cold War.”
If religion is the opiate of the masses, then the Piscean Age, as symbolized by Jesus is the bedrock of capitalism in the USA, a fiery fusion of salvation and sweat, typified by the Calvinist undercurrent, where work became a form of redemption and thus God’s work trickled down into all things. But this version of the Aquarian Age would have nothing to do with Jesus or God. This edition is all action, and rebellion. It derives its energy from destruction and chaos. It is not passive, nor is it obedient, but only in its early stages. When the fires of revolution cool, a new order emerges, one that is inherently a closed loop, because the transcendent/transformational capacity is played out in the early stages of the revolution and then reduced into more and more layered relationships of regulation and obedience as new, hierarchical structures emerge.
While the Soviet Union supposedly, ultimately failed, and as some historians would like to promote, due to the leadership of Aquarian, Ronald Reagan, who presided over the fall of the wall and the end of the Soviet Union as we know it. But did it really end?
In Part 3, we’ll look at the 21st Century, as the century of the new collectivism and the agents of the Aquarian Age.
I’m often asked when is The Age of Aquarius going to happen? There are a number of answers to that question, which more or less confirms that The Age Of Aquarius is happening all the time, right now and forever, since outside of this 3rd dimensional domain of space/time matrix, everything is occurring simultaneously. This is somewhat akin to the notion of time that Kurt Vonnegut played with in Slaughterhouse Five, temporal realities all co-existing together. David Foster Wallace built out this structure even more, connecting time to various personas influencing one another from different nodes on the timescale, past, present and future. So in this sense, The Age of Aquarius is here now, as it’s always been. But are there actual demarcations of it? Is it nailed down so precisely by the procession of the equinoxes? Based on the calculation that the Earth progresses through each sign at a clip of 2, 150 years per vernal equinox sign, Rudolph Steiner saw the true Age of Aquarius taking place in 3573, since we have been officially in the Age of Pisces since 1413AD.
I’ve made the case that the Age of Aquarius actually occurred when John F. Kennedy was ritually murdered in Dallas, on 11/22/63. At that time, the Moon was in Aquarius, as was Saturn. Looking at the above chart, we can see Aquarius on the ASC at the time of JFK’s death with Saturn at 17 Aquarius conjunct the ASC with Moon at 11 Aquarius in tow, 12th House. This is the inception of the “false” Aquarian Age. Saturn squared Neptune, planet of the Age of Pisces. Kennedy was synonymous with Camelot, thus, he was the Fisher king, and here he is sacrificed for the negative version or the dark, Age of Aquarius.
This catalyzed the 60’s and all of the other attendant social movements that were part and parcel of that bastardized version of the Age of Aquarius. So, in some ways, we have been in the Age of Aquarius, since 1963, but it’s been the shadow of that age and promise, even though The Fifth Dimension sanctified it’s arrival with their hit song, “The Age Of Aquarius” from the Broadway musical production of “Hair” which featured a tribe of neo-pagans celebrating the arrival of the Aquarian Age.
There’s been touch points along the way, for better or worse. Aquarian, Jose Arguelles channeled the “Harmonic Convergence” which occurred on August, 16-17 in 1987.
On January 17, 1981, with Moon and Venus conjunct, in Aquarius, the US and a coalition of the mostly willing, launched an air offensive on Iraq, which officially marked the start of the Gulf War. Note how the coalition again makes a false union, a synthetic network of aligned nations. This is also where G.H.W. Bush would eventually derive his talking points for the inception of the “New World Order” an Aquarian ideal folded into version of global governance, eliminating the quaint idealism of statism. On March 6th of 1991, then President Bush, would mention the New World Order for the very first time. Saturn had just moved into Aquarius (2 degrees). The next time he would make mention of this would be before congress;
“Out of these troubled times, our fifth objective—a new world order—can emerge: A new era—freer from the threat of terror, stronger in the pursuit of justice and more secure in the quest for peace. An era in which the nations of the world, east and west, north and south, can prosper and live in harmony.
A hundred generations have searched for this elusive path to peace, while a thousand wars raged across the span of human endeavor, and today that new world is struggling to be born. A world quite different from the one we’ve known. A world where the rule of law supplants the rule of the jungle. A world in which nations recognize the shared responsibility for freedom and justice. A world where the strong respect the rights of the weak.”
The date of his speech? 9/11/91.
Saturn was at 0 degrees Aquarius at that time. Here is the Sabian Symbol for 1 Aquarius according to Rudhyar;
PHASE 301 (AQUARIUS 1°): AN OLD ADOBE MISSION IN CALIFORNIA.
KEYNOTE: The power inherent in all great human works to endure far beyond the workers’ life spans.
The works and spirit of the Spanish priests who directed the building of the California missions have had a lasting influence on the development of this land; these remain as a monument to the men who were able to make their mark upon this alien environment. While the zodiacal sign Capricorn begins with a symbol of socio-political power, Aquarius at its start presents a more spiritualized and idealistic or creative picture of the social forces at work. Moreover, it stresses the enduring character of human achievements ensouled by a great vision. At least within the frame of reference of our Western civilization, the symbol speaks of the projection of a noble ideal into concrete forms of beauty and significance, thus of the radiation of a “civilizing” power into an institution offering to primitive men the opportunity to reach a higher, more organized and productive, level of activity.
This is the first stage in the sixty-first five-fold sequence. It speaks to us of THE CONCRETIZATION OF AN IDEAL. This also implies the “immortalization” of an individual within a great collective and cultural enterprise.
It’s fascinating to see this symbol as it’s held up against Bushes invocation of the rule of law versus the law of the jungle. Here, Rudhyar clearly distinguishes the difference between the two as the mission symbolizes order and a canonical law, which supersedes and overrides the primitive order of superstition and the chaos of the wilderness as manifest by the “uncivilized” tribes of the California coast.
