Scorpio 11° “I’m only doing my job.”

Scorpio 11

The Span of Retention – The 1st Hemisphere of Scorpio

Phase 221

Water Element – Fixed

The formula is: sustaining-ideal-universal-specializing-spiritual-experimental.

Dr. Marc Edmund Jones provides the official meaning of this Sabian symbol in his work, The Sabian Symbols in Astrology:

Scorpio 11° A drowning man rescued

This is a symbol of the soul’s personal immortality, and of its unabated eagerness in returning to the various phases of its experience again and again. There is here a consistent partnership between man and nature, so that the very accidents of circumstance can be counted on to serve him as long as he maintains his underlying enthusiasm of being. His consciousness has a continuity through his sense of responsibility for his own creative powers.

The Keyword is SAFETY.

When positive, the degree is the inherent courage which constitutes a protection from the vicissitudes of life, and when negative, a tendency to hysteria on the least occasion and a lean on transient excitement for all self-realization.

Warning Signal Ahead!

“I’m only doing my job.” — These are possibly the most dangerous words that could be uttered; however, they can likewise be the most honorable and humble words that can be spoken. It all depends on whether they are being used as an excuse and self-justification for refusing to hear the voice of one’s own conscience or whether uttered by the one following the chosen path of one’s destiny–that unfathomably dangerous journey through life of one’s purpose in humility and in power.

“I’m only doing my job.”

Here’s to the Whistleblowers!

The piercing sound of the whistle shrills through the air. All eyes turn in its direction and see the whistleblower pointing to the distressed one. Others, you see, are closer, able more swiftly to respond. Those closest to the situation have been alerted! They race, they dive, they swim to get to the one at the heart of the emergency. They arrive just as quickly as possible, their adrenalin pumping through them like water through a fire hose. Stay out of their way—for Heaven’s sake!

A Second Chance

Today is dedicated to the whistle-blowers, the ones “dedicated to identifying and pointing out the distressed situation and person in need of relief” to render ultimate and immortal assistance to those who have gone too far, those who have jumped in over their heads or, in the words of Dane Rudhyar, “…the person who carelessly, perhaps, ventured too far beyond his depth and then was given a ‘second chance’ to live…”. The whistleblower is the one who “risks his life to save another. … Love based on a sense of responsibility—even that of a chance bystander.” He comes for safety’s sake.

Somebody’s got to do it. Have you been called? If so that makes you responsible. Sure, the choice is still yours, but whichever way you chose–to respond or to tuck tail and run–the consequences are likewise attached. What matters is WILL YOU ANSWER THE CALL? Remember, there are two ways to think about this, to answer the call with… or to bow out with…

Scorpio 10° “Just add water and then stir.”

The Span of Retention – The 1st Hemisphere of Scorpio

Phase 220

Water Element – Fixed

The formula is: sustaining-ideal-universal-specializing-social-inspired.

Dr. Marc Edmund Jones provides the official meaning of this Sabian symbol in his work, The Sabian Symbols in Astrology:

Scorpio 10° A fellowship supper

This is a symbol of human service on the practical side of everyday reality, and of the need of man for the company of his fellows in every phase of outer existence. Here the emphasis is on the physical and bodily essentials of life as the simplest possible factors in any social intercourse. What all men understand best in their own terms is what each may make the convenient basis for his appreciation of the others in his recurrent relations with them.

The Keyword is FRATERNITY.

When positive, the degree is an effective channeling of personal aspirations into the commonplace grooves of a shared experience, and when negative, a surrender of individual distinction and exaltation of naïve animality.

The Banquet Scene from Hook https://youtu.be/JsJxIoFu2wo

Families are forever—whether as a blessing or a curse–they’re yours for keeps. Come hell or high water.

You are invited to a legendary feast!

Let’s cover a couple of reminders before you RSVP:

Dress Code: Suitable attire shall be your finest armor and please do carry your shield with you at all times. Daggers will be checked at the forest threshold.

Come Bearing Gifts: Notice is hereby given that you shall receive according to your giving. To he who has much, more shall be given. To he who has not, even that which he hath shall be taken away. (Read up on the parable of the talents if you’ve forgotten this universal principle.)

Hail! I hear the dinner bells! They tolleth for thee!

Come to the feast! It is time to dine!

And do remember, visits are always wonderful—if not the arrival, the departure.

Scorpio 9° “Tiny things lead to great things.”

Scorpio 9

The Span of Retention – The 1st Hemisphere of Scorpio

Phase 219

Water Element – Fixed

The formula is: sustaining-ideal-universal-specializing-social-responsible.

Dr. Marc Edmund Jones provides the official meaning of this Sabian symbol in his work, The Sabian Symbols in Astrology:

Scorpio 9° Dental work

This is a symbol of self-renewal through a continuous and conscientious attention to the needs of the being on all planes of effort, and of that stewardship of an inner and divine spark through which individuality sustains its spiritual citizenship in the symbolical community of its kind. Here are high personal rewards for every proper concern over one’s own potentialities and possessions. Man fulfills his highest mission as he dramatizes himself and his excellencies for his fellows.

The Keyword is PRACTICALITY.

When positive, the degree is a creative ingenuity brought to a real service for others, and when negative, a thoughtless acceptance of life’s makeshifts and an unhealthy admiration for artificiality.

Our DNA is saying, “Let’s unlock this, even ‘if it kills me’!” https://youtu.be/FTWLwCvoA4s

In a note describing the work, Dalí mused that the double helix is “the only structure linking man to God.”

Taking a bite out of life!

I have fed you with milk, and not with meat:  for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able. For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men? 1 Corinthians 3:2-3 KJV

Sacar:  to remove, to take out; to get, to receive…

Remembering lessons learned!

Your Testimony : Your DNA : Your Best Friend

We are doomed to repeat the lessons in our lives until we learn them. So, remember the lessons learned. When they become your “testimony”—your “I AM” existence—your revealed DNA coding—then more may be added to it. The day may come when you will be performing at a more highly-evolved state of existence—of consciousness—a you which you were always destined to become. The mysteries will unfold; if not, they will remain hidden until you choose to unlock them. Line upon line; precept by precept. Remember what you have learned! You are to become your own best friend!

Scorpio 8° “Illumined by soul’s current.”

Scorpio 8

The Span of Retention – The 1st Hemisphere of Scorpio

Phase 218

Water Element – Fixed

The formula is: sustaining-ideal-universal-specializing-social-receptive.

Dr. Marc Edmund Jones provides the official meaning of this Sabian symbol in his work, The Sabian Symbols in Astrology:

Scorpio 8° The moon shining across a lake

This is a symbol of the magic on which man always may call in facing any problems of inner or psychological adjustment. Implicit in the static symbolism is a fellowship of feeling which leads to all romance and which enables human hearts to gain their moments of release from the outer compulsions upon them and thus achieve their inner and more enduring orientation. Natural events here tend to shape themselves to meet the individual’s real yearning for a deeper experience.

The Keyword is RAPPORT.

When positive, the degree is an absolute and usually unsuspected mastery over the forces and exigencies of life and nature, and when negative, witless joy in the sheer vagaries of imagination.

Ready or not, a Joker has come trick-or-treating!

“Every deck of cards has a Joker or maybe two and normally in our work with the symbolism of the cards we don’t include the Joker. It is used as a cover for the deck so the top card isn’t observable until the Joker is removed. Then, before the cards are lifted to be shuffled the Joker is removed and set aside.

“As with all things, occasionally the order of doing is interrupted and the Joker ends up in the pack of cards and in your layout! When this happens, it has special meaning and needs special attention. The Joker stands for the unusual, the different and thus, when it appears in your layout, something is going on that holds a whole new potential of some nature. The mutation or ‘sport’ is a possibility here and that means a completely new and different eventuality. This is stronger than just black cards indicating a shift. This is a completely new birth of something that hasn’t been seen before – so, if this happens, pay attention to your Joker and where it is and just what it is striving to communicate to you. It is telling you that there is a whole new possibility in your life potential!” The Sabian symbols in Card Reading by Delle Fowler, pg. 51.

Scorpio 7° “Bringing hidden things to light.”

Scorpio 7

The Span of Retention – The 1st Hemisphere of Scorpio

Phase 217

Water Element – Fixed

The formula is: sustaining-ideal-universal-specializing-social-sensitive.

Dr. Marc Edmund Jones provides the official meaning of this Sabian symbol in his work, The Sabian Symbols in Astrology:

Scorpio 7° Deep-sea divers

This is a symbol of the absolute integrity of man’s nature at root, dramatized here by his insatiable determination to plumb all experience to the depths and to uncover the illimitable reaches of potentiality in his world of everyday relationships. Implicit in the symbolism is a challenge to self-refinement through a subjection of the skills of self to every possible test or opportunity for a further perfection. Self-fulfillment is through an ever-increasing interest in day-by-day problems.

The Keyword is INVOLVEMENT.

When positive, the degree is a persistent penetration to the very vital core of human motive and make-up, and when negative, fundamentally unsocial instincts and a resort to wholly absurd escapism.

What is the truth? What is the difference between truth and a belief, between religious doctrine and scientific fact? Is there such a thing as reality? Whose? Yours? Mine? Collective Consciousness? Consensus?

Where did you come from? Why are you here? What happens when you die? Do you have the answer?

Psst! You’ve got some competition!

“One thing that all religions have in common is that they all tell stories…. One of the most common types of religious stories all around the world is called a “creation myth”: it is the story people tell of how the world, and all the people and animals and plants, supposedly came to be. Every human culture has tried to put together such an explanation, and in the absence of scientific methods and knowledge every human culture has invoked some supernatural forces to try to explain how we all got here and where we came from.” Creation myths

To name just a few:

Ancient Babylonian Creation Myth

Hopi Creation Myth

Iroquois Creation Myth

Maya Creation Myth

Aztec Creation Myth

Inca Creation Myth

Ancient Egyptian Creation Myth

Indigenous Australian Creation Myths

Inuit Creation Myth

Scorpio 6° “Succeeding against all odds.”

Scorpio 6

The Span of Retention – The 1st Hemisphere of Scorpio

Phase 216

Water Element – Fixed

The formula is: sustaining-ideal-universal-specializing-social-experimental.

Dr. Marc Edmund Jones provides the official meaning of this Sabian symbol in his work, The Sabian Symbols in Astrology:

Scorpio 6° A gold rush

This is a symbol of the exploitation of natural resources through personal initiative or intelligence and of every individual’s essential independence of the commonplace limitations or superficial inadequacies of life. There are always high rewards awaiting any genuine enterprise, and as man dramatizes the opportunities of the world at large he is able to improve his own immediate condition in all possible directions. Human skills are forever challenged to their own good fortune.

The Keyword is AMBITION.

When positive, the degree is instinctive self-dedication to the unseen potentials of everyday existence, and when negative, a lack of practical discrimination and an irresistible desire for easy money.

The Book of Dyzan

STANZA VII.

  1. Behold the beginning of sentient formless life.

First the Divine, the one from the Mother-Spirit; then the Spiritual; the three from the one, the four from the one, and the five from which the three, the five, and the seven. These are the three-fold, the four-fold downward; the “mind-born” sons of the first Lord; the shining seven.

It is they who are thou, me, him, oh Lanoo. They, who watch over thee, and thy mother earth.

  1. The one ray multiplies the smaller rays. Life precedes form, and life survives the last atom of form. Through the countless rays proceeds the life-ray, the one, like a thread through many jewels.
  2. When the one becomes two, the threefold appears, and the three are one; and it is our thread, oh Lanoo, the heart of the man-plant called Saptasarma.
  3. It is the root that never dies; the three-tongued flame of the four wicks. The wicks are the sparks, that draw from the three-tongued flame shot out by the seven — their flame — the beams and sparks of one moon reflected in the running waves of all the rivers of earth.
  4. The spark hangs from the flame by the finest thread of Fohat. It journeys through the Seven Worlds of Maya. It stops in the first, and is a metal and a stone; it passes into the second and behold — a plant; the plant whirls through seven changes and becomes a sacred animal. From the combined attributes of these, Manu, the thinker is formed. Who forms him? The seven lives, and the one life. Who completes him? The five-fold Lha. And who perfects the last body? Fish, sin, and soma. . . . .
  5. From the first-born the thread between the Silent Watcher and his Shadow becomes more strong and radiant with every change. The morning sun-light has changed into noon-day glory. . . . .
  6. This is thy present wheel, said the Flame to the Spark. Thou art myself, my image, and my shadow. I have clothed myself in thee, and thou art my Vahan to the day, “Be with us,” when thou shalt re-become myself and others, thyself and me. Then the builders, having donned their first clothing, descend on radiant earth and reign over men — who are themselves. . . .

Thus ends this portion of the archaic narrative, dark, confused, almost incomprehensible. An attempt will now be made to throw light into this darkness, to make sense out of this apparent non-sense.

Scorpio 5° “Give up and you’ll never know.”

The Span of Retention – The 1st Hemisphere of Scorpio

Phase 215

Water Element – Fixed

The formula is: sustaining-ideal-universal-specializing-physical-inspired.

Dr. Marc Edmund Jones provides the official meaning of this Sabian symbol in his work, The Sabian Symbols in Astrology:

Scorpio 5° A massive, rocky shore

This is a symbol of the dependability of the physical universe whenever man holds the center of reality within himself and uses the static constituents in nature as a sustainment for his essentially dynamic being. Implicit in the symbolism is the need for a direct and continual attention to the over-all interests of the self at every point in life. Here is an exaltation of pure experience in its eternal and universal lineaments.

The Keyword is STABILIZATION.

When positive, the degree is a poised spirit and a firmness of personality which enable every individual to prepare himself and his fellows for any possible contingency, and when negative, blind stubbornness or unreasoning conservatism.

STANZA VI.

  1. By the power of the Mother of Mercy and Knowledge — Kwan-Yin — the “triple” of Kwan-shai-Yin, residing in Kwan-yin-Tien, Fohat, the Breath of their Progeny, the Son of the Sons, having called forth, from the lower abyss, the illusive form of Sien-Tchang and the Seven Elements:
  2. The Swift and Radiant One produces the Seven Laya Centres, against which none will prevail to the great day “Be-with-Us,” and seats the Universe on these Eternal Foundations surrounding Tsien-Tchan with the Elementary Germs.
  3. Of the Seven — first one manifested, six concealed, two manifested, five concealed; three manifested, four concealed; four produced, three hidden; four and one tsan revealed, two and one half concealed; six to be manifested, one laid aside. Lastly, seven small wheels revolving; one giving birth to the other.
  4. He builds them in the likeness of older wheels, placing them on the Imperishable Centres.

How does Fohat build them? he collects the fiery dust. He makes balls of fire, runs through them, and round them, infusing life thereinto, then sets them into motion; some one way, some the other way. They are cold, he makes them hot. They are dry, he makes them moist. They shine, he fans and cools them. Thus acts Fohat from one twilight to the other, during Seven Eternities.

  1. At the fourth, the sons are told to create their images. One third refuses — two obey.

The curse is pronounced; they will be born on the fourth, suffer and cause suffering; this is the first war.

  1. The older wheels rotated downwards and upwards. . . . The mother’s spawn filled the whole. There were battles fought between the Creators and the Destroyers, and battles fought for space; the seed appearing and re-appearing continuously.
  2. Make thy calculations, Lanoo, if thou wouldest learn the correct age of thy small wheel. Its fourth spoke is our mother. Reach the fourth “fruit” of the fourth path of knowledge that leads to Nirvana, and thou shalt comprehend, for thou shalt see . . . . .

Scorpio 4° “Guide my path. Flow living gold!”

The Span of Retention – The 1st Hemisphere of Scorpio

Phase 214

Water Element – Fixed

The formula is: sustaining-ideal-universal-specializing-physical-responsible.

Dr. Marc Edmund Jones provides the official meaning of this Sabian symbol in his work, The Sabian Symbols in Astrology:

Scorpio 4° A youth holding a lighted candle

This is a symbol of a true contact with inner and transcendental realms of reality, and of the rewards to the spirit which come from a realization of the continuing ties between the least of individuality and universal life as such. There are always evidences of higher meaning and immortal value in each moment’s detail of everyday living, and there is an enthusiasm which arises from an ever-clear vision to bring every possible sustainment to man in his outer and practical world.

The Keyword is RELIANCE.

When positive, the degree is an unquenchable and irresistible confidence in the goodness and integrity of all things, and when negative, a simple-minded impracticality if not a very unhealthy self-obsession.

STANZA V.

  1. The Primordial Seven, the First Seven Breaths of the Dragon of Wisdom, produce in their turn from their Holy Circumgyrating Breaths the Fiery Whirlwind.
  2. They make of him the messenger of their will. The Dzyu becomes Fohat, the swift son of the Divine sons whose sons are the Lipika, runs circular errands. Fohat is the steed and the thought is the rider. He passes like lightning through the fiery clouds; takes three, and five, and seven strides through the seven regions above, and the seven below. He lifts his voice, and calls the innumerable sparks, and joins them.
  3. He is their guiding spirit and leader. When he commences work, he separates the sparks of the Lower Kingdom that float and thrill with joy in their radiant dwellings, and forms therewith the germs of wheels. He places them in the six directions of space, and one in the middle — the central wheel.
  4. Fohat traces spiral lines to unite the sixth to the seventh — the crown; an army of the Sons of Light stands at each angle, and the Lipika in the middle wheel. They say: This is good, the first Divine world is ready, the first is now the second. Then the “Divine Arupa” reflects itself in Chhaya Loka, the first garment of the Anupadaka.
  5. Fohat takes five strides and builds a winged wheel at each corner of the square, for the four holy ones and their armies.
  6. The Lipika circumscribe the triangle, the first one, the cube, the second one, and the pentacle within the egg. It is the ring called “Pass Not” for those who descend and ascend. Also for those who during the Kalpa are progressing towards the great day “Be with us.” Thus were formed the Rupa and the Arupa: from one light seven lights; from each of the seven, seven times seven lights. The wheels watch the ring. . . . .

Scorpio 3° “The answers are appearing.”

Scorpio 3

The Span of Retention – The 1st Hemisphere of Scorpio

Phase 213

Water Element – Fixed

The formula is: sustaining-ideal-universal-specializing-physical-receptive.

Dr. Marc Edmund Jones provides the official meaning of this Sabian symbol in his work, The Sabian Symbols in Astrology:

This is a symbol of the indomitable outreaching of the human spirit on the side of simple co-operations in everyday living, and of the individual’s realization of his own inherent divinity as he seeks his fulfillment through his fellows. There is a joy in common enterprise which strengthens his efforts for personal gain, and also a sense of well-being in the sure dependence he may place on family and neighbors whenever an emergency arises.

STANZA IV.

  1. Listen, ye Sons of the Earth, to your instructors — the Sons of the Fire. Learn, there is neither first nor last, for all is one: number issued from no number.
  2. Learn what we who descend from the Primordial Seven, we who are born from the Primordial Flame, have learnt from our fathers. . . .
  3. From the effulgency of light — the ray of the ever-darkness — sprung in space the re-awakened energies; the one from the egg, the six, and the five. Then the three, the one, the four, the one, the five — the twice seven the sum total. And these are the essences, the flames, the elements, the builders, the numbers, the arupa, the rupa, and the force of Divine Man — the sum total. And from the Divine Man emanated the forms, the sparks, the sacred animals, and the messengers of the sacred fathers within the holy four.
  4. This was the army of the voice — the divine mother of the seven. The sparks of the seven are subject to, and the servants of, the first, the second, the third, the fourth, the fifth, the sixth, and the seventh of the seven. These “sparks” are called spheres, triangles, cubes, lines, and modellers; for thus stands the Eternal Nidana — the Oeaohoo, which is:
  5. “Darkness” the boundless, or the no-number, Adi-Nidana Svabhavat: —
  6. The Adi-Sanat, the number, for he is one.
  7. The voice of the Lord Svabhavat, the numbers, for he is one and nine.

iii. The “formless square.”

And these three enclosed within the ο are the sacred four; and the ten are the arupa universe. Then come the “sons,” the seven fighters, the one, the eighth left out, and his breath which is the light-maker.

  1. Then the second seven, who are the Lipika, produced by the three. The rejected son is one. The “Son-suns” are countless.

Scorpio 2° “You’ve felt it your entire life.”

Scorpio 2

The Span of  Retention – The 1st Hemisphere of Scorpio

Phase 212

Water Element – Fixed

The formula is: sustaining-ideal-universal-specializing-physical-sensitive.

Dr. Marc Edmund Jones provides the official meaning of this Sabian symbol in his work, The Sabian Symbols in Astrology:

Scorpio 2° A broken bottle and spilled perfume

This is a symbol of man’s real power in making his permanent impact on others, dramatized at each moment of issue and crisis by a completeness of the self’s flow out and into every last ramification of the given experience. There is in the reversed symbolism an irrevocability of self-expression which marks every individual’s divine determination to be significant at all costs. The chrysalis of being is burst open in what may well be tragedy for anything short of a supreme self-dedication.

The Keyword is PERMEATION

When positive, the degree is persistence in creative effort and utter fidelity to the inner essence of selfhood, and when negative, witless dissipation of every resource of self and society.

STANZA III.

  1. The last vibration of the seventh eternity thrills through infinitude. The mother swells, expanding from within without, like the bud of the lotus.
  2. The vibration sweeps along, touching with its swift wing the whole universe and the germ that dwelleth in darkness: the darkness that breathes over the slumbering waters of life. . .
  3. Darkness radiates light, and light drops one solitary ray into the mother-deep. The ray shoots through the virgin egg, the ray causes the eternal egg to thrill, and drop the non-eternal germ, which condenses into the world-egg.
  4. Then the three fall into the four. The radiant essence becomes seven inside, seven outside. The luminous egg, which in itself is three, curdles and spreads in milk-white curds throughout the depths of mother, the root that grows in the depths of the ocean of life.
  5. The root remains, the light remains, the curds remain, and still Oeaohoo is one.
  6. The root of life was in every drop of the ocean of immortality, and the ocean was radiant light, which was fire, and heat, and motion. Darkness vanished and was no more; it disappeared in its own essence, the body of fire and water, or father and mother.
  7. Behold, oh Lanoo! The radiant child of the two, the unparalleled refulgent glory: Bright Space Son of Dark Space, which emerges from the depths of the great dark waters. It is Oeaohoo the younger, the * * * He shines forth as the son; he is the blazing Divine Dragon of Wisdom; the One is Four, and Four takes to itself Three,* and the Union produces the Sapta, in whom are the seven which become the Tridasa (or the hosts and the multitudes). Behold him lifting the veil and unfurling it from east to west. He shuts out the above, and leaves the below to be seen as the great illusion. He marks the places for the shining ones, and turns the upper into a shoreless sea of fire, and the one manifested into the great waters.
  8. Where was the germ and where was now darkness? Where is the spirit of the flame that burns in thy lamp, oh Lanoo? The germ is that, and that is light, the white brilliant son of the dark hidden father.
  9. Light is cold flame, and flame is fire, and fire produces heat, which yields water: the water of life in the great mother.
  10. Father-Mother spin a web whose upper end is fastened to spirit — the light of the one darkness — and the lower one to its shadowy end, matter; and this web is the universe spun out of the two substances made in one, which is Svabhavat.
  11. It expands when the breath of fire is upon it; it contracts when the breath of the mother touches it. Then the sons dissociate and scatter, to return into their mother’s bosom at the end of the great day, and re-become one with her; when it is cooling it becomes radiant, and the sons expand and contract through their own selves and hearts; they embrace infinitude.
  12. Then Svabhavat sends Fohat to harden the atoms. Each is a part of the web. Reflecting the “Self-Existent Lord” like a mirror, each becomes in turn a world.
