Into Aquarius – A Medicine

This week’s planetary surge in Aquarius – we walk with sun, moon, mercury, venus, jupiter, saturn – releases a Medicine from the deep.

My dear friend Mischa Rutenberg’s song and profound prayer for America: “America Hear Me Calling” is shared here on YouTube. It opens with Emma Lazarus’s poem The New Colossus.  Do listen, and let us rise together with the healing hope; and pass on the message.

Music and Lyric: Mischa R. © MorPrem Publishing / ascap

“The radiant promise at the heart of America is embodied in Lady Liberty, who stands patiently at our gateway, waiting… In the storm of challenges buffeting the nation, Lady Liberty sings: “America, O America, hear me calling, answer me. Speak with conscience, answer truly, with respect and dignity. America, all are praying that your promise will survive. Embrace all, stand for Freedom, offer justice for all lives. Help the New Day be realized.  In this powerful and moving presentation, we come to feel the Great American Journey is to bring fully to life America’s deepest values—its compassion, tolerance, and respect for one and all. Let us join together with a feeling of confidence and optimism—to see that day is realized.”

“Together let us raise awareness of what the true America is meant to be.
It is too easy to be cynical because we are so far from the ideal version of ourselves, lets work together to improve this. Let’s raise our voice over the din of ignorance we are currently inundated with. Let us reclaim America in the name of tolerance, love, inclusion, justice, and compassion.   Make our presence known.  If you share my love for this country and believe that we are destined to fulfill the promise of being a compassionate people who respect and honor all religions, all races, all genders, with liberty and justice for all please share the link to this video we have just completed.

“Copy the link directly from youtube and send it to anyone who will benefit from knowing that We are America and We will rise to fulfill this Nation’s beautiful destiny. We have far to go, but together with open minds and hearts we can overcome all obstacles and ignorance.

With love and gratitude, Mischa”

Here is the lyric:

“AMERICA…HEAR ME CALLING”
America…hear me calling
Where are you? I am waiting.
America can you hear me?
I am standing at your gateway.

America  the world is watching,
Will you answer or turn your back now?
Will you stand for truth and freedom?
Will you show the mercy needed?

America…are you still there?
Can you hear the children crying
For their mothers, for their fathers?
They are family they’re not Others!

America  can you see me?
I still hold your light above me.
Sending out Love’s invitation,
Welcome home we are Liberty.

America are you listening?
Hear  the voices of the fallen
Precious lives so dearly given
For the freedom you now live in.

America open your heart now
Open your mind, open your eyes.
Destiny is calling you
May your role be realized.

America!   Oh  America!
Hear me calling,  answer me.
Speak with conscience, answer truly,
With respect and dignity.

America all are praying
That your promise will survive.
Embrace all, stand for Freedom,
Offer justice for all lives

Help the New Day be realized

We are here. We are America.  We are many.  We are One!
We stand together with our answer,  open arms for everyone
We stand for truth,  we stand for freedom, we stand for justice  for all lives.
We hear your call. We are America and your call won’t be denied.
Stand as one, stand together, we will see a New World rise

rise… rise… rise…  Rise

My previous post carried an immune-booster DANDELION!  This one carries a FREEDOM OF GOLD.

Many years ago the following alchemical Invocation  “wrote me”  to balance my finances and relationship. I awaited an opportunity to post it here for reflection:   I believe if we stand, take a good deep breath and fill ourselves with the sun’s Light through every pore – especially on a rainy day! – we align with the depth purpose in Corona virus and in nature  – to correct imbalance and initiate a profound global change – and to stay well with the help of all.

There is seeing a bigger picture …

There is pain and grief but already there are the signs.  There is health and beauty in us!  Rise!

A Prose Poem Contemplation:
“Go Bold, Be Gold” (2002)

On flowing sands is a pyramid of grey stepped stone.  It is faced with white marble under sapphire sky; an uplifted apex of the Cross.

Imagine within.  Gold is made inside the pyramid where it is dark, with resonance from the tomb.  Be gold in the becoming and being made; gold is congealed sunlight.  Receive and transmit gold from life; let it touch your hands like rain, and watch it flow.

Golden is a moment’s wonder to pause and savour.   Gold is the standard.  Gold is a pulsing vein inside the rock, like living fire.   Golden is the Sun’s Action in the Emerald Tablet of Trismegistus.   Alchemy is always; but under the Master’s direction only my attention is needed – He does the rest.   Go bold, be gold, and marvel at its rippling play. It spreads from here, to saturate the bricks and trees across the road and penetrate the atom;  sunlight filling a wet street is gold, for rain through the sun is gold, and liquid fire is rain.   Go bold!

Seek wherever you go – and embody – the ultimate stable currency or coin: a hollow crown.  Gold has no end, for it is of our Sun, and as it fills your heart with love, the wealth radiates onward. The soul that is so mined from the mountains shines about her business: a joy to the Fishermen of Sol.  Let the product grow; nothing is more valuable.   The destination is a timeless fact;  contemplation, reaching and receiving the river … be still.   Philosophers’ Gold rivers into fact, touch, hearing, taste, and worldly use; yet it has no boundary.  It oversteps fears, dismantles shrouds, and sustains oasis through chaos.  Only an imagined separateness created the weeping dark walls and resistances.

It touches the leyline of Archangel Mikael of the Sun, and Miriam the holy Mother, through a web of dolmens and tors in southern England.  LOVE.   I AM.   the GLORY.  Go bold.  The capillary glows like volcanic rivers in the night.   Awareness is this touch.   The purpose is not to daydream, but to be certain and most true.  The confected Stone may be imaged as a golden pyramid, four-faceted, like the Chariot of Ezekiel; here in the centre behind the brow a “pineal” cone opens its petals; here is the little pyramid, a bright grain, like glass.

Now sign, seal and keep it within the safe: the heart.  It is safe that it is never “mine” to misuse or carry astray, but the Master’s own, to mine with me.   In this present moment is inexhaustible wealth and shelter. In the recognition is creation from the Solar waterfall.  I sense an elder Egyptian magic.  It is said of the vast majority of earth-dwellers,  “their expectations are determined by past experiences.”

Sun Yantra

BE GOLD:     “Just as men, chained to earth for millennia by the law of gravitation now fly faster and farther than any bird by utilising another aspect of the same law, so does a keeper of the Light pay his or her Karmic debts in a more valuable kind of cosmic currency.  For the work gives them access to that treasure of treasures which enables them to strike the balance without pain.”  (Builders of the Adytum)

Sundancers: quotation from the Yoga Vasishta

Venus, ruling Libra the Scales, exalts Saturn/alchemical lead into gold.   “The vapour condenses itself again as a solid – as the solid conditions of external circumstance.”

“Question whatever we are told
until it is proven pure GOLD.”

Reflections on The Lovers, and on Gold

Image

Key Six – The Lovers; Key 0 – The Fool

Behind Eve in The Lovers, is a growing tree and behind Adam there is a burning bush – a tree of little flames.  Solomon’s left pillar descends (fruit).  The right pillar ascends (fire).   So the water and fire trines interpenetrate.  The sacred geometry of Solomon’s Seal is plain:  the upper and lower points are the angel’s head and Adam-Eve’s hands.  Their hands do not quite touch – they touch the space – it is always evolving, drawing closer, into relationship.

The fire trine’s base line is their heads.  The water trine’s base line is the angel’s arms.  The upper triad of the hour glass descends into the ascending lower one.

Why is the sun behind Archangel Rafael in the Lovers, golden?   The sun in Key 0, The Fool, is white, a white sun.

The White Sun in Key 0, The Fool, is pure Spirit, Kether, the Self, before entering the prismatic spectrum.   Gold is sunlight congealed in the rocky veins of Earth – the star itself.   Gold is a standard currency of value.  In alchemy, gold is a creative medium.   To make gold, we must have gold, in principle, to expand.  Sunlight – the photon – warms every direction in space, unlike moonlight which is polarized.   Gold is the supremely creative metal. It will melt down, flow and re-form into any shape or design, remaining itself.

“If you are Tifareth, the Heart of the Tree of Life, you may live and be as you like, as you are gold.”  The white Sun of the Spirit is En Sof, without end or form.   The gold Sun of the Lovers became a manifest creation, a currency, a sovereign, an art of Life.

The eternal essence of gold is in the sun.  Thus it fires and flows, even when it is bound into a ring.  Golden is the inner nature’s active purity, refined by fire.

Archangel Rafael’s face, arms and hands are yellow.  In Tarot, this is the colour of Consciousness.   The Lovers depict self-consciousness (male) and sub-consciousness (female).  To live accurately, we should pause – to learn the Divine Law as reflected in the feminine pool of our nature;  otherwise we continue to act blindly from false, habitual premises.

The yellow colour, as an Intelligence, is associated with the higher Hermetic octave – Rafael – of the planet Mercury.  All colours have frequencies, or tonal vibrations linked to sound – the spectrum with the octave.  They impact our receptors as specific “Intelligences” or modes of being.  It is a work in itself, to re-sensitize the daily “soup” and discriminate those tones, all stirred around like dirty paint.

Pure yellow is a workaday projection of the gold.   In general, its vibration warms and uplifts, like a daffodil or buttercup:  the dawn.   In the Indian tattva system – the inner essence of the five physical senses – yellow is the cube of Earth:  paradoxically, this Earth tattva resides in the Crown chakra.   In Kabbalah, the Crown is Kether and Earth is Malkuth:  they interchange through the Four Worlds of Jacobs Ladder.

The general meaning is that Spirit lodges everywhere in Earth, and manifests wherever the centre is refined.   In nature – amid tooth and claw – it does this readily;  among humans it is difficult, because we are a work yet incomplete.   Every detail has the long term outcome which the Angel sees, but we are unable to see, when our agendas cloud it.   Yet the Angel needs our evolving body.   Angels have no lower chakras.   Humans have the whole chakra spectrum, in potential.   We supply the Angel’s hands and feet, the living root.

An “Angel” is a shorthand term, meaning “a conduit of cosmic Law.”    Angels are principles and tempi of the galaxies and atoms:  every rotation in our life.   The Angel represents the matrix of our inner Guardians and Teachers, or Maggidim.   The view from a higher – or deeper –  plane, beholds our landscape very differently.  It is difficult for us to see the fields and hills beyond and around the hedges and lanes we walk along;  so we need altitude for perspective.   It is difficult for the Angel to toil within the unique whorl of God’s fingerprint on our life and destiny.   Raised above the maze, we see the finger of God, the YOD, breathing vast life into Adam Qadmon as a whole;  and the minute detail of our self importance in the Mosaic.  The atom is in and of the whole.   This is salutary.

The Archangel in the Lovers is Rafael, whose overall colour tones are pansy-yellow and violet.   Rafael is Hermetic, an informed presence of healing and clarity;  discriminating the mixed pigments of life.   Yellow and violet tones are means whereby the Solar Gold shines through to us efficiently.  Their musical keys are E-natural and A-sharp – together, an augmented 5th; a profoundly questioning interval, resolves towards a 6th.

On the tree the dewy Fruit ripens and falls.   On the burning bush, the Flame rises and speaks.

The tree behind Eve – her kundalini – is brown, green and yellow, the colours which earth the electricity.  Adam’s intellect is incomplete – a blackened or lightning-struck tree – without the fertile root in Eve, as sub-consciousness.   Nourished essentially by Eve, it is up to Adam – our everyday, rational mind – to work the subconscious light and dark issues productively, and to evolve.   The subconscious is amenable to every suggestion or input.   Self consciousness has the key – with clear seeing – to order the amenities, improve health generally, and discard what is not useful.   The insight is always conscious – a turning towards the Angel, often against immense Karmic inertia-momentum.   We carry humanity’s full pressure of history in our DNA.   The DNA chain forms a double helix, like the Hermetic caduceus or Staff.   The snake coiled around the tree behind Eve, represents this:  the DNA cosmic pattern of all her potential children.   Our thought forms are our children, as much as those we bring forth and love.

“The Lovers” portrays the need to look from higher than our local life-experience.   This applies as much to personal matters, as to politics, ecology and the world-view.  It is helpful to keep acknowledging a perception above and below the limited media spectrum – or screen – of our mass persuasion.

Image

Patterns

**

The Lovers stand in a wide green landscape, giving each other space;  in the distance rises a tall mountain to the Angel.  The mountain is “Binah”, their understanding or blueprint – salt of the Earth – which links them to the golden heart of Nature.   It collects the grains of destiny, like an hourglass.   The green landscape resonates with Venus – her soft, non-resistant metal, copper, turns green – and with the garden of fertility, the multiplicity of seeds.   Through osmosis and photosynthesis, through the colour green, Sunlight is transformed and made available to us, as nourishment.

This simple fact has vast implications.   Yet it begins at home – in the greenwood of my life as given.   Only by turning within, can “I” – yours and mine –  begin our humanity’s response to emergency.  An emergency emerges:  a birth.   Gravity holds all the Universe together;  yet gravitons are – like single fish or starlings in a great flock – imperceptible; and each of us individually, with our staff of infinite DNA, is a graviton.   It starts at home.   It starts here and now.

Arcana 6 & 0:  The Lovers and The Fool

**

To sum up:  the man is full of potential, but suffers from ignorance.   He looks at the woman, who is fertile but passive.   She looks up to Rafael receptively.  She mirrors Rafael’s countenance, and the knowledge how to act, to the man.   Rafael beholds, embraces and gives them both the space to work out their destiny, their hands to touch, their space to for-give.

In another version of The Lovers, the message is again discernment:  the crossroads or point of decision;  the tipping point, whose heritage is centuries hence.
