Esoteric Astrology - The Nature of Esoteric Astrology - Spiritual Effects of the Zodiacal Constellations
This appears clearly in the words spoken to the man [150] upon the Mutable Cross as he passes through an Aquarian cycle. The words are:
  • "And the Word said, Let desire in form be ruler,"

for desire becomes gained knowledge and the knowledge of that which is hidden at any stage upon the path of evolution relates the individual to Uranus. When the man is upon the Fixed Cross, the words come forth:

  • "Water of life am I, poured forth for thirsty men."

The implications are so clear that there is no need for me to be more explicit or to elaborate the theme.

We shall next consider Capricorn at some length. These three studies of Pisces, Aquarius and Capricorn will be slightly longer than the succeeding ones as I have been laying the foundation of what I have to say under our fifth point: The Three Crosses. We shall have brought out certain considerations in connection with them that will be of value; Pisces is part of the Mutable Cross, Aquarius of the Fixed Cross, and Capricorn of the Cardinal Cross, and there will, therefore, be no need to repeat in such detail what I have here said when we are dealing with the other signs. These three signs are beginning signs or final signs, according to the state of the wheel of life. They also sum up or initiate the activities of the other nine signs which are fundamentally strictly human signs and synthesize the results of experience upon the three Crosses.

We shall be able now to cover our present thesis anent the philosophical implications of the Great Wheel of the Zodiac far more rapidly, as I can now leave what else remains to be said in connection with the three Crosses until I come to that part of our Section VI. There I shall have much of interest to point out. I have dealt with these three Crosses at some length whilst we were covering these first three signs of the zodiacal wheel as it revolves from Aries, through Pisces, to Taurus. Each of these three is found on [151] one of the Crosses and thus in themselves and in their relationship they constitute a complete unit. It is interesting to note how these three signs are either those of commencement (upon the Mutable Cross) or of consummation (upon the Fixed Cross). In the case where they stand for beginning we have:

  1. Aries - 1st Aspect - latent - Movement outward into incarnation. The Will to manifest. - Experience upon the Cardinal Cross.
  2. Pisces - 2nd Aspect - latent. - Desire for form existence. The Love or desire for material, things. Constant mutation. Experience upon the Mutable or Common Cross.
  3. Aquarius - 3rd Aspect - latent. - Consecration to the service of the lower self. Selfishness. Experience upon the Fixed Cross.

When these three signs form the end of the cycle of expression upon the reversed wheel, then you have:

  1. Aquarius - 3rd Aspect - expressed. - Consecration to the service of the Whole. The death or negation of all personality selfishness. Culmination of experience upon the Fixed Cross.
  2. Pisces - 2nd Aspect - expressed. - Emergence of a world savior. Death of all separate desire and love, even spiritual longing and aspiration. Culmination of experience upon the Mutable Cross.
  3. Aries - 1st Aspect - expressed. - Appearance of the will to cooperate with the Plan. The death of Self-will. Culmination of experience upon the Cardinal Cross.
