Libra: The 7th Sign of the Zodiac

“Not by One Alone May the Highest of All Be Reached, But by Two United Souls Who Are Exalted by the Sweet Reverberations of Holy Love.”

Choosing the Seeds We Plant...

The Autumnal equinox occurs when the Sun begins to decline in vigor and the days are growing shorter. The beautiful, vibrant colors of spring and summer have faded. Crops planted during spring have been harvested. In the natural solar cycle it’s time to assess whether there is enough food and adequate shelter to last through the long cold of winter.

This time of reckoning in the natural world coincides with one of the world’s “holiest” times of year—a period when sacred traditions around the world set aside a time for devotees to review their thoughts, deeds and actions of the previous year. Weighing good deeds against those that are not, believers are encouraged to assess how they measure up to the moral code to which they aspire. It is a time to establish moral equilibrium by balancing spiritual aspirations with actual progress in daily life...

Hermetic Alchemy

From the Lessons...

Salt, Mercury, and Sulphur

“Not because I shall refer to them thus in these lessons, but because they appear in the writings of nearly all alchemists, some explanation should be made of salt, mercury, and sulphur.​ ​

​“It is a cardinal principle laid down by all that these three are the elementary constituents of everything.

“The most familiar example of crystallization is that of salt. When Lot’s wife, as related in the Bible, looked back, she crystallized. So does anyone who becomes so attached to present objects and conditions that he does not look ahead in the direction of progress. Salt is extensively used. Because of its recognized state of crystallization it becomes a universal symbol of the physical. The physical body is the salt of the alchemist.

“Of things that burn with great heat, sulphur is widely recognized. Lakes of fire and brimstone are alluded to from the pulpit. Sulphur, because of its association with intense heat, becomes the symbol of fire. Within all life there is a spark of the divine fire. This eternal spark of Deity that furnishes the energy to impel the soul ever onward in its toilsome journey through the vastness of life is well represented by a more than common fire. The indwelling spirit is the sulphur of the alchemist.

“No wonder the alchemists must conceal under universal symbols their ideas from the church; for they believed and taught that not only man but everything possessed of life has not merely a body but a spirit and a soul. The function of this evolving soul is to penetrate the realm of form and gather those experiences that ultimately becomes love and wisdom. Quicksilver penetrates quickly where water will not go. It may be strained through a chamois-skin bag. Of amazing activity, its globules run hither and thither, and actually gather up, or amalgamate with, precious metals. It is like the intellect in its activity and power of acquisition. Mercury is a universal symbol. To the alchemist, when mentioned in relation to salt and sulphur, it signifies the soul.”

For use at times when strife, haste and waste of energy, harshness, temper or violence enter our life.

Constructive Aggressive Urges express as Initiative in the use of energies for constructive work and action, building up instead of tearing down.

O Thou Eternal Spirit, in Whom I live, move, breathe and have my Being! Temper my aggressive activity with gentleness in all that I do and say. Direct my love into channels of care and protection for others. Let the chief interest of my life be constructive service to the weak and helpless.

So Shall It Be!....
