Capricorn — Evocative Images and Esoteric Teachings

Francis DonaldThe images and texts published in these posts were created by Francis Donald.  His wonderfully evocative images and inspiring writings help us to more fully understand the nature of astrological signs, and the esoteric concepts underlying their meaning and power.

We are grateful to Francis for this most significant contribution.

Capricorn

Capricorn Discussion

by Francis Donald

As the sun pauses for a moment on the horizon, we step inside the pyramidion (capstone) of the Great Pyramid– one of the most sacred places on earth. A rare moment in the life of a disciple is unfolding before us: “[We see] the emergence of the consciousness of the initiate (white and one-pointed) and the defeat of the king of beasts (the personality) …the triumph of selflessness and illumination over selfishness…The king of beasts [has been] blinded and killed by the piercing of his eye and heart by the long horn of the unicorn.” Esoteric Astrology, p. 155

 

Initiation - The New Unicorn by Francis Donald

Initiation – The New Unicorn by Francis Donald

Thus we have the theme of this month’s full moon image entitled “Initiation– the New Unicorn.” His victory has taught him to kneel upon his lion’s skin, for “only when the Capricornian subject learns to kneel in all humility and with his knees upon the rocky mountain top to offer his heart and life to the soul and to human service, can he be permitted to pass through the door of initiation and be entrusted with the secrets of life. Only on his knees can he go through that door.” Esoteric Astrology, p. 169

He “offers his heart and life to the soul” by means of a mudra (a sacred hand position).

 

Detail of Disciple's Vision (Capricorn, 2011)

Detail of the disciple’s mudra and vision, from Initiation, by Francis Donald

As the center of gravity shifts from personality to soul, his inner vision opens. The two horns have become the unicorn’s great “horn of plenty” It has been occultly said that a vision of these powers and their many weaving lines (seen  as rivers and streams of light) is given to the initiate from the mountain top of Capricorn, once that summit has been reached. It is at the Transfiguration initiation that this vision appears before the eyes of the astounded disciple.” Esoteric Astrology, p. 167

On the alter before our disciple sits the crocodile-headed god Sobekh. The Crocodile, the Goat, and the Unicorn depict three stages of man’s spiritual unfoldment in Capricorn. Sobekh with its two horns, uraeus, and solar disk carries attributes of all these stages, thus he hastens the dissolution of the outgrown form. When linked with Heru, the falcon-headed principle of spiritual ascension, he becomes a potent transformer– a primal force needed in the preparation for initiation. For this reason both Sobekh and Heru (here depicted as a descending falcon surrounded by the constellation of Capricorn) offer the ankh– the symbol of life.

* * * * *

The Mudra: The thumb and little finger of our disciple form the apex of a pyramid while their opposites indicate the Pit– the root chakra of the Great Pyramid. The inner three fingers of each hand form a counterclockwise spiral that represent the pyramid’s three known ascending spaces, the Queen’s Chamber, the Grand Gallery, and the King’s Chamber. And of course “pyramid” means “fire at the center.” This mudra also represents the head center, the “Heart’s Deep Cave,” and the root chakra of the disciple. Through this dual meaning he has aligned himself with this great instrument of initiation. 

The Vision: Saturn crowns a mandala of 7 circles and their interconnecting lines of force representing the seven sacred planets. As Saturn rules Capricorn both exo- and esoterically, you will find it poised above the mudra within a field of green, emanating its lines of force in all directions. In the capstone above Saturn, the onrushing eye of Horus meets the “eye that looks out from between the two” thus connecting the micro and macrocosmic. (You can see a ripple as this axis passes through the force field of the pyramidion).

Odds and ends:

The solar logos is illustrated through the use of both the left and right eyes of Horus thus depicting a level of consciousness beyond duality.

Venus (Capricorn’s hierarchical ruler), ever the companion of the setting sun, shines from atop a nearby pyramid.

The flight of the falcon from night to day illustrates the momentous passage in Capricorn into the light half of the year macrocosmically, and this disciple’s passage into Life microcosmically.

The image of Horus embossed on the robe of the initiate radiates within a sun that has 51 lines of force. The sides of the Great Pyramid are set at 51º 51’.

The white belt indicates the disciples triumph in the tests of Scorpio.

The rug shows the same mandala of interconnected circles whose deeper meaning is being revealed to the disciple.

Capricorn: “…in the perfect example of the influences of Capricorn, head and heart are perfectly balanced.” Esoteric Astrology, p. 169

“Capricorn admits the soul into conscious participation in the life of that world centre which we call the Hierarchy.” Esoteric Astrology, p. 169

“Capricorn is ever the sign of conclusion, and of this the mountain top is frequently the symbol, for it marks the point beyond which further ascent in any particular life cycle is not possible.” Esoteric Astrology, p. 168

The Great Pyramid: This great temple was designed for the rites of initiation by an unknown Master Builder of the highest order– and thus serves as the Capricornian mountain-top par excellence. From Esoteric Psychology, Volume II: “Through the opening on the summit of the pyramid, dropped from the blue of heaven, a key came down. It landed at the feet of the discouraged worker. The key was of pure gold; the shaft of light; upon the key a label, and writ in blue, these words: ‘Destroy that which thou has built and build anew.  But only build when thou has climbed the upward way, traversed the gallery of tribulation and entered into light within the chamber of the king. Build from the heights, and thus shew forth the value of the depths.’”

Sobekh: The magical properties of Sobekh-Heru line of force was well known in ancient Egypt; in fact two separate sanctuaries were erected on the grounds of Kom Ombo, one each for Sobekh and Heru, so that this line of force could be made accessible to the priests and acolytes of that temple.

* * * * *

In Tibet, there is a type of structure called a ‘Gompa’– a combination spiritual study center and meditation hall that can be found in almost every lamasery. In “Extract from a Statement by the Tibetan” (which prefaces each of the Alice Bailey “blue books”), the Master Djwahl Khul (DK) informs us that He is/was the abbot of such a lamasery, situated near the border of Tibet. In keeping with the Tibetan tradition of study, meditation, and service, DK has provided us with a curriculum, to be used in future esoteric schools, that extends beyond cultural boundaries, the guidelines of which have been adopted by the Morya Federation. (See Letters on Occult Meditation, p. 297)

‘First there is a mountain, then there is no mountain. Then there is.’[1]

Take a moment to imagine, if you will, the Master Djwahl Khul awaiting our arrival in the Gompa depicted in this month’s image. Drawn by His wisdom, we pass together through the Capricornian gate and begin our climb– intent on closing the gap that separates us from Him. (It is customary to capitalize all reference to those who have achieved the level of Master of the Wisdom and higher.)

 

Gompa by Francis Donald

Gompa by Francis Donald

As we ascend, we get an occasional glimpse through the trees of another mountain, one that dwarfs the foothill we are climbing. “That must be the true mountain,” we think to ourselves. In fact, the more of it we see, the more absorbed we are in its Presence, and the less we seem to notice the difficulties of the path we walk. Upon our arrival at the Gompa, we find ourselves among other seekers, all gazing eastward, lost in contemplation of an unimaginably loftier summit.

And the waiting Master? We know now that He was with us at the gate (some might say He is their gate), is with us in the Gompa, and will continue to guide us as we descend into the hidden valley beyond.

* * * * *

The mountaintop: The symbol we most readily identify with Capricorn is a natural metaphor for final achievement within a given arena of aspiration and endeavor. DK tells us: “Capricorn is ever the sign of conclusion, and of this the mountain top is frequently the symbol, for it marks the point beyond which further ascent in any particular life cycle is not possible. Capricorn is, therefore, the sign of what has been called esoterically “periodic arresting.” Progress becomes impossible under the existing forms, and there has to be the descent into the valley of pain, despair and death before a fresh attempt to scale the heights takes place.” Esoteric Astrology, p.158

Geometry, Rulers, and Rays: Because of the predominant influence of the 3rd aspect of divinity in Capricorn (Saturn is its exoteric ruler) rotary motion governs the initial environing conditions of this cardinal earth sign. The quality of this motion is described thus in the Old Commentary: “Amid the whirling forces, I stand confused. I know them not, for, during all my past, they swept me up and down the land wherein I moved, blinded and unaware.” Esoteric Astrology, p. 20

But Saturn is also Capricorn’s esoteric ruler, and as such, offers opportunity to the disciple who stands ready to break the inertia. This puts a new face on Saturn, bringing in 1st ray as well as 3rd ray energy (see EA621). Describing this progressive influence the Old Commentary continues: “I know them now [the whirling forces] and here I stand and will not move until I know the Law [of Karma] which governs all this movement up and down the land… I will determine for myself the way to go. Then onward I will move. I will not travel up and down the land nor turn in space. But onward I will move.” Esoteric Astrology, p. 20. Rotary motion gives way to directed movement.

In Esoteric Psychology, Volume I, the ‘six brothers’ (ray lords) exhort their 3rd ray ‘sibling’ (Saturn) to “Let the clear shining of the sun of life reveal the mind of God, and set the shining one upon his way. Then lead him to the central point where all is lost within the light supernal” (the Sun is the 3rd decanate ruler of Capricorn). The final phrase in the above quote: “…lost within the light supernal” directly links this Old Commentary passage to Capricorn’s keywords: “Lost am I in light supernal, yet on that light I turn my back.” But the keywords indicate a further step– a step beautifully described in these words from DK:

Capricorn rules the knees and this is symbolically true, for only when the Capricornian subject learns to kneel in all humility and with his knees upon the rocky mountain top to offer his heart and life to the soul and to human service, can he be permitted to pass through the door of initiation and be entrusted with the secrets of life. Only on his knees can he go through that door.” Esoteric Astrology, p. 169

Dear Fellow Students of Spiritual Esotericism,
Because we have entered the post-election period, which may be even more dangerous for democracy than the period leading up to the election, we will hold a daily Vigil-Meditation of about 20 – 25 minutes. Its usual time will be 8:00 pm GMT except on weekends when it will be 10:00 pm GMT. Let us continue in Full Strength.
The work will continue into January towards Inauguration Day, and perhaps up to Inauguration Day. It will continue at least until the Jupiter-Indigo candidates (Joseph Biden and Kamala Harris) are officially confirmed as president elect and vice-president elect.

 

Love and Many Blessings from Tuija, Michael

Donate To Fund Transcription of Commentaries on ‘A Treatise On White Magic’

We have a current project that is in process — the transcription and completed book of my commentaries on A Treatise on White Magic. All the Mental Rules are complete, but due to the retirement of an existing long-time donor, we have suddenly found ourselves without sufficient funds to complete this project! While our early requests for new funds and sustaining donors has met with some immediate, generous results, we are still short of the total amount needed to fulfill our commitment to completing this project, and new, regular contributors, are needed.

Invitation to join the Morya Federation

Morya Federation, Esoteric Schools of Meditation, Study and Service

 

Second invitation letter from Michael Robbins:

Dear Friends of Humanity and Disciples Aspiring Towards the Light of Wisdom,

We soon begin the eighth year of meditation and study within the Morya Federation—a federated group of esoteric schools bridging towards the New and Future Schools of Esotericism which are beginning to appear around the world. Their initial appearance may be anticipated perhaps in decades, and their full appearance perhaps in centuries; nevertheless the bridge must be built.

The Ageless Wisdom is the “pearl of great price”. It has been given to us through the tremendous sacrifice of Masters and high initiates. We must finally come to recognize this. When the opportunity exists to deeply study and meditation  upon the Ageless Wisdom (and to enhance our service to humanity as a result of our meditation and study), the opportunity must be taken, if we are even truly to join the ranks of those who are the Custodians of the Divine Plan.

Please go to the Morya Federation Website (www.moryafederation.com) and press the tab called Applications. There you will find the opportunity to apply for one of three of our educational programs: Meditation Quest, Great Quest or Quest Universal. Please examine the website and learn about the Morya Federation, its programs and its purposes. We look forward to receiving one of your completed Applications shortly, so you can be ready to start your studies at the December Solstice, December 21st, 2015. This is the time when Master DK recommended for beginning the yearly cycle of the new esoteric schools. And if you are a former student of the Federation, we will be pleased to re-welcome you for the continuation of your studies. On the Path of Spirituality leading to liberation, we must never give up!

Light, Love and Power,

Michael D. Robbins, Ph.D., Ph.D.E.

Director: Morya Federation

President: University of the Seven Rays and Seven Ray Institute

 

First invitation letter from Michael Robbins:

Dear Prospective Students of the Morya Federation,

The Morya Federation is an esoteric school bridging towards the Future Preparatory Schools of Meditation about which the Tibetan Master, Djwhal Khul, writes so inspiringly in His book, Letters on Occult Meditation. At the Morya Federation we have embraced as much of the Master’s extensive, proposed esoteric curriculum as is possible for us at this time. We seek to give students who wish to expand their understanding of the Realities of Life a comprehensive and deep exposure to the Ageless Wisdom which, if truth be told, is far older than our planet, Earth.

Every year at this time I begin to write those who may have an interest in going deeper in the understanding of the Great Mysteries which the Spiritual Hierarchy of our planet is now urgently presenting to the human race. Ever since the emergence of the great Initiate, Helena P. Blavatsky in the late 19th century (and her monumental words, Isis Unveiled and The Secret Doctrine) the Spiritual Hierarchy has been making a concerted effort to increase the spiritual light, spiritual love and spiritual will of the human race so that the great transformation which is anticipated for humanity may occur according to the Divine Plan. Alice A. Bailey (working with the Tibetan Master) continued this invaluable presentation for another thirty years—from 1919 to 1949. It has not been easy but, in many ways, the presentation has been successful, and we, at the Morya Federation, seek to be of assistance to the Great Ones in Their great task of assisting in the redemption of humanity.

We are beginning our eighth year at the Morya Federation on December 22nd, 2015. I will hold our annual Inaugural Meditation (which will include the exact moment of the December Solstice) on that date for all students (both new students and the veteran students who have been with us for some years or even from the very beginning). I hope your deep thought and meditation brings you to join us as participants in our Educational Program which lasts from one to eight years (or more, according to your will-to-complete and on your background in Trans-Himalayan Esotericism).

When you go to our Morya Federation Website (www.moryafederation.com) you will learn all about our Educational Federation and its programs. Please go there, read about what we offer, take your time to read carefully, and if you feel inspired by the possibilities, go to the Application Section, and choose to fill out one of our three types of Applications for 1) Meditation Quest (our Introduction to Meditation Program); 2) Great Quest (our Introductory Esoteric Psychology Program); or 3) Quest Universal (our Advanced Program in Esoteric Studies).

When one carefully examines the condition of humanity’s psyche, one easily sees the maya, glamor and illusion which excessively influence human thought and action. The unfortunate state of consciousness of so many in the Family of Humanity simply must change if we are to emerge as we should into the Age of Aquarius. The Ageless Wisdom holds the key to a far deeper understanding of the nature and destiny of the Human Family and of the aspiring individual within that family. Compared with the distorted and, even, childish visions which animate so many hundreds of millions, a true understanding of the Ageless Wisdom is seen as absolutely essential to humanity’s successful development. Bringing the Ageless Wisdom to humanity will require many intelligent men and women of goodwill, many servers, who are well-versed in its lore—students and teachers who understand it in depth. This potential for acquiring in-depth understanding (and the application in service of what is understood) is what we offer at the Morya Federation, the programs of which cover the wide range of esoteric thought—from the fundamentals all the way to the deeper and more abstruse levels of esotericism.

Please do go to our Morya Federation Website and take a good look at what we offer. If you wish to serve your fellow human beings by going deeply into the art and science of meditation and into esoteric studies (and inspiring others with what you have learned), then choose to fill out one of the three types of Applications and join us in the quest for true enlightenment – which will inevitably be followed by deeper service to your fellow human beings.

If you are already a member of the Morya Federation (either as a student or Faculty) please share this letter with those you know who may be interested in and may benefit from our educational programs. Many students illumined by the Ageless Wisdom are needed to help humanity make the great transition which lies before it—a transition into the fifth kingdom of nature, the Kingdom of Souls. This will signify the First Initiation of Humanity. We can hasten the arrival of this great unfoldment of consciousness if our will to meditation, study and service is of adequate strength!

Light, Love and Power:
