Once in love with a Virgo, you might as well resign yourself to shaving twice a day, and the same goes for showers. Splash on after shave lotion, brush off the lint, spruce up your hair, wear a fresh shirt, mind your manners, and polish your shoes before you go a-courting this girl. Walk in her door angrily. Virgo goes to no extremes. She can take care of herself, thank you. In general, underplay the whole scene. Parades, too. The pomp and pageantry, the dramatic emotion, give her an outlet for her own tightly controlled emotions. Her highly developed intellect and artistic taste com bine to give her a keen perception.
Discrimination is one of her keywords. To criticize is as natural to her as breathing is to you. Virgo is the eternal perfectionist, and without her, we would all be pretty messy and sloppy around the edges. The golden rule definitely does not apply here. Virgo females who take an occasional whirl down the primrose path of promis cuity are clever enough to cover up the lapse, and such behavior is most certainly an exception. For two months? Well, Virgos are human, you know. The emotional nature of Virgo is controlled, but not nonexistent.
Remember that. It will give you courage. The Virgo girl is annoyingly meticulous about small things, but she can also be the kindest, most generous and affectionate little creature in the world. Consider her per fectionism a virtue, instead of a vice. Her modest manner and soft, clear eyes have done their job well. To her, truth is beauty-and beauty is truth. The quiet courage and deep sense of responsibility of Virgo women often acts as a magic glue to hold large families together.
Little ones often find Virgo mothers delightfully funny and gentle.

Give this woman both. You may often catch her busy with sewing or mending, and if you have a really typical Virgo wife, your house may be full of the heavenly mixed fragrance of fresh flowers and hot home-made bread baking crisply in the oven. Her eyes are cool pools of pure love, and when she smiles, she can light up a whole room with her radiance. Better keep her. You may never get so lucky again. She found herself at last in a beautiful garden, among the bright flower-beds and the cool fountains.
The line forms to the right. Even without astrology, rumors have spread about the charms of a Pisces female. The Neptune female seldom tries to overshadow her man, married or single. All she wants is that he should protect her and care for her. Just think of all those wolves out there, waiting to devour Red Riding Hoods. A Pisces woman thinks her mate, lover, boy friend, brother, father-in fact, any man-can lick the whole world with one hand tied behind his back, and it takes a surprisingly small amount of her touching faith to convince them of the same thing, men being the way they are.
The Pisces girl is a cozy, calm haven of tranquility for her proud male, far from the noise of the frame and the ticker tape machines. The lights in her fish pond are soft and dim. Though if it would really save her life, she would sharpen her pencil. In the winter she wears fluffy angora mittens. In the Spring she wears dainty, full skirts. Summers will find her in a brief bikini. She is eternally feminine in all seasons. At the risk of making an understatement, men are drawn to her like bumblebees to a honey pot. A short conversation with her, and a man instantly relaxes.
He pictures a glowing, crackling fire on a chilly night, or he sees himself in a hammock on a balmy spring day, with no one to nag him. Shell never press him to get ahead faster. His own pace is perfect with her. Need I explain why the female fish makes the most dangerous other woman of all the Sun signs? Maritime warning: After marriage she may nudge a little. To be truthful, she may nudge a lot. In a way, it serves you right for letting yourself be so blinded by her charms. Not me. Besides, her delectable femininity covers any minor deficiencies, and most of the time the typical Neptune girl is soft, dreamy and womanly.
Since the fish swims in both directions at once, she adapts beautifully and quietly to conflicting situations that would turn other women into nervous Nellies. Of course, now and then, some cranky words and irritable chatter may bubble up from her normally placid stream of thought. Occasionally a sensitive Neptune female who has suffered harsh treatment at an early age will allow bitterness to break the two symbolic fish of her sign apart-and this can be very sad.
She becomes a lonely, miserable Piscean, always swimming furiously, and meeting herself everywhere she dives down to escape-never realizing that the turning inward of her endless love and sympathy toward herself is the real poison. Drugs and drink and false illusions hide the truth from her and blind her to the rocks in the river that might destroy her. Pisces is said to be a deep, mysterious sea, into which all rivers flow.
What makes her swim? As a matter of fact, the same Pisces. Now, you may know a Neptune lady who wears a gingham apron and a shy smile, and who is the epitome of the devoted wife, homemaker and tender mother. Forgive my directness, but you are wrong. As for that Pisces lady you think is different, I know her, too, or one just like her. She has the open love and affection of two daughters-in-law, and an incongruous group made up of the librarian, the super, the owner of the comer delly, the fruit man, half a dozen stray cats and children, the butcher, the newsboy, and would you believe it, even the landlord.
She may have one enemy. The man she turned down before she married her husband. He probably joined the Foreign Legion in disappointment, and now I doubt if she even remembers his name. Heartless females, these Pisces women. Subtle and deceptive. Like the March winds, your Pisces girl will have many a mood. Then deep depression sets in. The hardest lesson she has to learn is to overcome her timidity and her doubts. I know one who pours out her real soul by writing lovely song lyrics with a secret message woven in the shades of her soft, very private dreams.
Yet, even this type of Pisces is unable to fight her Sun sign. With all her make-believe independence she waits on the curb and lets the man whistle for the cab. They only mess up your life. A Pisces girl will give all of her heart to her children, except for the large chunk she saves for you. Only a Pisces movie star would pass up the little dimpled darlings and adopt a tiny, crippled tot with frightened eyes.
Female fish are the greatest women in the world for understanding the shyness of small. A Piscean mother spins a thousand wispy, cobweb dreams over each bassinet. She may be too permissive. Administering discipline is difficult for her, and she must realize that a lack of firmness is often as bad as severe neglect.
In a way, it is neglect, of building the small characters in her care, who need firm guidance to leam to swim alone. Still many Neptune mothers manage a happy medium between discipline and kindness, and their offspring do them credit. A Pisces woman will gladly let you cam the bacon and cggplant. Some, not all, but some Pisces women are a wee little bit extravagant. She listens to the ocean, and it tells her things.
In the midst of the city, she still hears the waves of Neptune whispering to her Pisces heart more, perhaps, than she wants to know. She was tiny, with long, dark hair and those strange Neptune lights in her greenish brown eyes. She married among several other men a big football star; it was a totally unexpected elopement. I remember when she asked him why he proposed. She was curious. We were in the park, near the pool.
The chicks who were lying around getting a tan had wet, stringy hair from swimming, and they looked all hot and sweaty on the benches. You were sitting there under that tree in a white lace dress, and you looked so cool and different from the others. You looked like-well, I guess you sorta looked like a girl. All girl. One hundred percent. Your Gemini woman will never take a train when she can fly.
Her mind is full of so many thoughts and her heart is full of so many hopes, she may seem to need a computer to sort it all out. Or does she just need someone who can run beside her and toss dreams with her-from here to tomorrow? Some deep, unexplained fear within her keeps her from ever looking back. When you finally match her speed, get her to slow down to your pace. You can do it, if you hold her hand tightly and never let it go. Though Mercurial north winds drive her on, secretly she may long to rest awhile more than you know.
Do hurry and try to reach her. She needs you. To begin with, Virgo females have this dogged belief that no one can do things as orderly and as efficiently as they can. Because Rams and Bulls each have tough horns, the determination of Aries and the stubbornness of Taurus might seem to be identical traits. They are not, and numerous incidents will occur between the two of them to make the distinction clear.
Get someone else. After a few encounters, the difference between the two traits will become evident. Determination initiates. Stubbornness reacts. The first is a Positive action. The second is a Negative re-action. Therefore, in any clash between Aries and Taurus, the Ram starts it and the Bull finishes it. It is a science AND an intuitive art. But sadly, most of the world has forgotten that. In , Dr. Frank A. Brown, Jr. Science has always assumed that oysters open and close with the cycle of the tides of their birthplace. But when Dr.
Their new home was kept at an even temperature, and the room was illuminated with a steady, dim light. For two weeks, the displaced oysters opened and closed their shells with the same rhythm as the tides of Long Island Sound—one thousand miles away. Then they suddenly snapped shut, and remained that way for several hours. Just as Dr. Brown and his research team were about to consider the case of the homesick oysters closed, an odd thing happened. The shells opened wide once again. Exactly four hours after the high tide at Long Island Sound—at the precise moment when there would have been a high tide at Evanston, Illinois, if it were on the sea coast—a new cycle began.
They were adapting their rhythm to the new geographical latitude and longitude. By what force? By the Moon, of course. Human energy and emotional cycles are governed by the same kind of planetary forces, in a much more complicated network of magnetic impulses from all the planets. Since man himself consists of seventy percent water, why should he be immune to such forceful planetary pulls?
The tremendous effects of magnetic gravity on orbiting astronauts as they get closer to the planets is well-known. Did you ever talk to a policeman who had to work a rough beat on the night of the full Moon? The movements of the Moon and the planets are as important to him as the latest farm bill controversy in Congress.
Scientists are aware that plants and animals are influenced by cycles at regular intervals, and that the cycles are governed through forces such as electricity in the air, fluctuations in barometric pressure and the gravitational field. These earthly forces are originally triggered by magnetic vibrations from outer space, where the planets live, and from where they send forth their unseen waves.
Phases of the Moon, showers of gamma rays, cosmic rays, X-rays, undulations of the pear-shaped electro-magnetic field and other influences from extraterrestrial sources are constantly penetrating and bombarding the atmosphere around us. No living organism escapes it, nor do the minerals. Nor do we. Harold S. He further states that the human central nervous system is a superb receptor of electro-magnetic energies, the finest in nature. We may walk with a fancier step, but we hear the same drummer as the oysters.
The ten million cells in our brains form a myriad of possible circuits through which electricity can channel. Therefore, the mineral and chemical content and the electrical cells of our bodies and brains respond to the magnetic influence of every sunspot, eclipse, and planetary movement. We are synchronized, like all other living organisms, metals and minerals, to the ceaseless ebb and flow of the universe; but we need not be imprisoned by it, because of our own free will.
The soul, in other words, is superior to the power of the planets. The purpose of the astrologer is to help us gain the knowledge of how to avoid drifting downstream—how to fight the current. If you believe in personality profiling such as the Myers-Briggs indicator, there is no reason you should view astrology as invalid. The zodiac simply paints an artistic picture of the same electro-magnetic vibrations that shape our brains at birth, and acknowledges the cosmic source of those vibrations. Her clarity of vision will spot an elaborate lie by the.
Her highly developed intellect and artistic taste com-. Virgo females who take an occasional whirl down the primrose path of promiscuity are clever enough to cover up the lapse, and such behavior is most certainly an exception. Consider her perfectionism a virtue, instead of a vice. With all the impulsiveness rampant in the world, what would we do without the sharp eye and mind of Virgo? Your house will be clean and cozy, and the big bowl on the coffee table will hold apples instead of chocolate candies bad for the teeth and general health. Astrologers who speak of an old soul refer to a soul which has gone through many lives, retaining the wisdom of each.
Often, they refer to Pisces, because a life as the fish is either the most difficult obligation a soul can choose—or a chance to reach perfect fulfillment. While Aries represents birth in the zodiac, Pisces represents death and eternity. His surprising ability to organize and concentrate on detail which pops up now and then, as well as his gentleness, reflects his inner knowledge of the lessons of Virgo.
His judgment is as fair and detached as that of Libra, and his love of pleasure is also pure Libran. Pisces people have the crazy sense of fun of Cancer, as well as both the Cancerian sympathy and crabbiness. There may also be a smattering of the Saturine [Capricorn] melancholy. Perhaps more than just a smattering. The fish can be as moody as a moon [Cancer] child and as happy as a Lion [Leo]. He likes to tease and analyze in Aquarian [Aquarius] fashion.
His often overflowing with Aries idealism and enthusiasm, but usually without the Mars [Aries] drive. A Pisces person can zip around with Gemini quickness, talk just as fast and think just as cleverly. He can also be as lazy and peaceful as Taurus. Pisces holds within himself the fondness of debate of all the air signs, the love for nature of all the earth signs and the flaming aspirations of all the fire signs.
But he is neither fixed nor cardinal. The fish is mutable always; in this respect he is undiluted. The one and only quality which originates with his own sign is his strange power to stand outside himself and see yesterday, today and tomorrow as one. The Piscean love of music and art, and his highly developed senses and versatility he owes to other signs, but his deep wisdom and compassion belong only to him, culled from the combined knowledge of every human experience.
He is stronger than he thinks and wiser than he knows, but Neptune guards this secret until he discovers it for himself. Gemini is a walking, talking Question Mark, constantly curious and occasionally spurious. Scorpio is a firm Period, and the end of Knowing, the ultimate punctuation in the power of concentration. The soul must pass more than once through the First Six Initiations of Love as:. Scorpio holds the enviable reputation of being the most sexually magnetic, smoulderingly charismatic, and psychologically enigmatic of all the zodiac figures.
Throughout history, Scorpio has been subjected to ongoing slanderous assault: Considered a dark, defensive sign with subterranean drives and a powerful reservoir of emotional energy, Scorpio has often been used as a significator for liars, backstabbers, traitors, thieves, lechers, and all sorts of dubious users and abusers! In medieval times scorpions were emblems of evil, death, and the serving of self-interest, used as a token for Judas in Christian symbolism because of the deadly treachery implicit in their sting.
No sign ever falls on the negative end of a moral trait; it is only bound to representing an archetypal theme and bringing both extremes of that theme into focus. With Scorpio the inference of deceit picks out the theme of falsity and truth ; and as we might expect, those with the acuity to be masters of deceit are also the best equipped to recognise it when they see it. In their gift of realising deception, rejecting hollowness and seeing through shallow facades, Scorpios are not afraid to expose realty for what it is; they are the emissaries of a more complete sense of truth than many of us are prepared to contemplate, the penetrating aspects of it often being too painfully sharp for comfort.
The paradox of Scorpio is that when it is fooling you, it is not really acknowledging you at all. Real communication with this sign means engaging with honesty, no matter how candid, sordid or direct. Traditionally governed by Mars, Scorpios are genuinely capable of seeming destructive and intimidating, towards noble ends as well as self-centred interests , because where Mars dominates there is little interest in compromise; the impulse is for active attack or strategic defence, whatever it takes to avoid yielding one inch more than necessary.
But the direct, active principle of Mars is sublimated in its nocturnal expression, and like all water signs Scorpios seldom instigate attacks, preferring to hold their power in reserve. This undercurrent of unexpressed energy is the basis of an almost tangible magnetism, a sense of power embedded in the aura that reveals itself expressly when their acute defensive instinct is stirred. Consider the role of scorpion gods in ancient symbolism and myth; invariably their function is to act as guardians, custodians and protectors; oblivious to external distraction but ferocious in the cruel retribution unleashed on those who break their sentinel.
When Scorpios do engage in conflict their method of operation is perfectly reflected by the terrestrial creature that defines their celestial motif - all scorpions are venomous and all are predators, but they never actively hunt or chase down their prey; instead they patiently sit and wait, months if necessary, proceeding to ambush only when their quarry is close enough to stand little chance of escape.
In business and battle Scorpios make inestimable adversaries, particularly when they take up positions where they can calculate, control and hold back a concerted effort until its execution will realise maximum impact. Consequently Scorpios excel at military leadership, board room politics and court room disputes; Second World War leaders Patton, Montgomery and Rommel were all Scorpios, locked together in a game of cool, calculated planning geared towards maximum damage for minimum effort.
No doubt the capacity to hold the nerve and strike without hesitation has served Scorpio Bill Gates equally well in the battle ground of the business world. The ability to penetrate superficial gloss is a trait that Scorpio shares with Virgo, a sign to which it is tied in sympathy, albeit often with the inequitable viewpoint of Scorpio being the perpetrator of worldly-wise experience, and Virgo, the victim of purity born from naivety.
Their affiliation is revealed in the similarities of their glyphs which represent the intestines and illustrate that both signs are highly sensitive to gut-reaction. Yet with Virgo the glyph is closed off and recedes into itself, symbolising barrenness, an urge to be self-contained, but revealing a need to receive and allow itself to be drawn out in order to gain completeness. With Scorpio the glyph is outwardly extended, blatantly phallic, depicting an energy that is not so easily constrained; its impulse is to penetrate, invade, and when it does so its manner is unswerving and focussed.
Both of these are feminine signs, so neither is comfortable with an easy, expressive discharge of internal energy; and since Scorpio is of the phlegmatic temperament it is even more driven towards internalisation. Like Virgo, Scorpio has an analytical gift: it probes the depths, breaks apart, identifies the dross and eliminates the wasteful or insincere. Like all water signs, Scorpio finds a natural habitat in the world of feelings and instincts. Its emotional reservoir is incredibly strong since its fixed nature is resistant to easy movement, allowing the watery element to seep into rarely accessed depths that are not easily stirred, processed or purified.
It is moved only by great effort and force, signifying torrents, flooded land and destructive mud-slides. Here destruction and creativity meet together, causing a tremendous alchemical reaction between attraction and repulsion, a transmutative force which deserves the highest respect since a negative or uncontrolled release is capable of destruction, just as a positive, controlled discharge is imbibed with the power to sweep away all boundaries of resistance.
The Egyptians, who accorded great honour to scorpions and beetles, recognised the spiritual alliance between the creatures that dwelt beneath the earth and the magical, alchemical processes of life, death and regeneration. Their word for this black, muddy earth was Kemit , adopted as khemia by the Greeks, and eventually forming the basis of the word alchemy which has dropped its spiritual dimension - but not its power to transmute and create - in the modern word chemistry. Whilst all the water signs are known for their fertile potential, it is with dark, still, muddy Scorpio that we encounter the truly powerful creative potential.
Similar analogies are revealed through the relationships between the signs of the zodiac and the parts of the body they rule. Excretion demonstrates the need to eliminate that which has served its purpose; thus in the bodily processes of procreation and elimination we see the metaphysical reflection of the Scorpionic dance through attraction, creation, destruction and regeneration.
For Scorpios who lack conscious direction this can seem an exhaustive ongoing process, a life full of highs and lows, passion and pain, with the zenith and nadir of experience expanding with each successive turn. There is no doubt that this full exposure to experience involves pain, suffering, hardship, distress and agonised emotions.
Most Scorpios have encountered the harsher realities of the world at some level or another, and being fixed in disposition they retain their experiences - even the most in-depth, transpersonal counselling techniques can only help to bring acceptance and understanding, they do not erase the memories. Through Scorpio we are drawn to confronting and conquering such demons, a journey requiring an honest acceptance of how we contribute towards, as well as suffer from, the issues that underlie corrupted patterns of behaviour.
It has been said that no one has a true understanding of any brutal, distressing event until they have experienced it in full. Who can claim to understand or even try to break any pattern of abuse except those that have acknowledged their part as both abuser and abused, and then, having risen outside of the circle, brought the wisdom of experience to the needs of those still suffering within it? Scorpios that are in or have worked through this cycle naturally find it hard to be lightly chatty about it.
Any attempt to skirt around issues, whatever form they take, smacks of insincerity and avoidance, and Scorpios have seen too much, and worked too hard to deal honestly with the darker sides of reality, to engage in a world of pretence. Even in their sarcastic sense of humour Scorpios have a way of reminding us that we may laugh at life, but we should never be too flippant about it.
As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of a man [Aquarius], and the face of a lion [Leo], on the right side: and they four had the face of an ox [Taurus] on the left side; they four also had the face of an eagle [Scorpio]. Ezekiel 1 verse The eagle of St John is the eagle of Scorpio, which sign alone of all the twelve has two images, the eagle the symbol of the redeemed and spiritualized Scorpionic nature, the scorpion its fallen, unredeemed and earth-bound nature.
Transcendence from the crawling scorpion to the soaring eagle, still predatory, still conveying the essence of patience and penetration, but capable of flight and height, brings together the theme of destruction and renewal as a story of evolution. Being committed to such a purposeful journey, Scorpios may well seem too intense to many, immensely secretive regarding private matters, unforgiving, jealous and possessive of their territory, and instinctively hostile to those who stand in their way.
Their emotions are strong and passionate, but they run deep and are not easily expressed. Their relationships are seldom relaxed and easy-going, as sexual attraction is often the means through which they explore their own emotional power and transformational journey. Once passion is lacking they are capable of an almost cold-heated detachment and reserve which can leave an acute sense of abandonment in the partner. Ultimately they follow their own path, and yet they remain intensely loyal to those to whom they give their allegiance, take their responsibilities seriously and respond positively to trust that is sincerely invested in them.
Their personal magnetism draws many towards them and if they chose to take up a position of leadership their motivating will bears strong influence upon others and their persistence usually guarantees success. But they will often shy away from positions that involve long periods of being the centre of attention - bright light is stark and inhospitable to them.
Scorpios have subtle, crafty fingers but never forget that they are attached to an iron first of power. People tend to love them or hate them; either way Scorpios are always a force to be reckoned with. External image. Modern astrologers have assigned the outer planet Pluto as a co-ruler for Scorpio but this is disregarded in traditional techniques which require use of the full dignity scheme. Scorpio typically gives a well built, corpulent body with a strong constitution. Where the body is large, it is nonetheless solid, robust and active, and generally quite hairy.
The complexion, hair or features tend towards darkness, and the eyes are often dark and penetrating. The face is characteristically square or broad with a short neck, often giving a squat appearance. It is related to the excretory system, reproductive organs and the genital regions. Governed by Mars, many of its diseases are associated with ruptures, inflammations, ulcers and acute pain caused through abrasions and blockages. Diseases that fall under the signification of Scorpio include ureteral stones bladder stones, blockages in the penis ; strangury painful discharge of urine ; priapism prolonged, painful erection ; inflammatory bowel disease and such diseases as lead to fistulas ulcerations that form channels of infection in the lower intestines and genital regions; sexually transmitted diseases such as gonorrhoea and syphilis; hemorrhoids or piles swollen veins in the rectum and anus which cause painful burning and itching ; testicular diseases and all illnesses that lead to pain in the lower abdominal, genital or perineal area.
Scorpio is also generally associated with viruses or afflictions that come from bites, stings or poisoning. Raphael also claims that Scorpio signifies scurvy, a disease caused by a lack of vitimin C, which prevents the healthy absorption of iron from the intestines. These include habitats where vermin, reptiles or insects gather and, according to Al Biruni, deserted places, prisons and places of grief and mourning. As the fixed member of the water triplicity, Scorpio also relates to locations where water collects and stagnates: muddy or swampy grounds, bogs, marshes, sedimentary deposits and quagmires.
Al Biruni mentions black mud and underground conduits, but also captured the destructive martial power through his association with drowned flooded land and torrents. A further illustration of Scorpio being linked with mud is his suggestion that in furniture it signifies artefacts made of clay. Inside the house Scorpio points to locations that are cold and dark, low down or underground, or near water used to eliminate waste. These include sinks and the cupboards underneath them that contain poisonous cleaning agents , toilets and drains inside and out ; cellars, pantries and larders being cold and dark , undeveloped basements, areas that suffer from damp and decay, or have been left untenanted and remain in need of renovation or demolition.
In the garden Scorpio will represent muddy areas, compost heaps, the sunless north-facing wall, inaccessible areas, pot holes, puddles and stagnant ponds. External image Traditional Rulerships of Mars. It seems the one message Goodman wanted people to take with them from her book was to realize the enormous human potential for love. Birth charts predispose people in just such a way. However, Goodman wanted people to know that it is possible to carry on a loving relationship between people of any sign, and not to pass on the chance for love just because two sun signs are less than compatible on paper.
Once you understand how each needs to be loved, you can better understand how to deliver that love. This statement is amazing. This is the secret to love. This girl will never lie to you. How she feels and what she thinks are identical with how she acts and what she says…Her heart is defenseless. The three are inseparable, because when she gives her love, her friendship trots right along beside it.
She fell in love with you many years ago, when she was a little girl and wished on the new Moon for someone to share her honest heart. There were lots of times when she thought she had found you and was disappointed. But when you finally came along, she knew you right away, because you were a gentle clown with a dream or two of your own who took her hand and showed her the way to the stars. I can assure you that a September birthday is no guarantee of virginity. Although lots of Virgos remain bachelors and spinsters, there are also plenty who finally settle into connubial bliss. See that gentle, attractive man over there in the comer, with the thesaurus under his arm?
The one with the tick-tock mind, clicking away the hours neatly and methodically noticing the smallest details? See that quiet girl with the beautiful, soft eyes, waiting for the bus? Notice her spick-and-span white gloves, her cool manner. They sometimes make attempts to follow the party routine, through pure frustration, but. He probably is. Worry comes naturally to him. Although the ascendant and other natal positions can modify the typical Jack Spratt spare figure, you can generally look for a rather wiry build, and unusually lovely, quiet eyes.
Virgo eyes are often so astonishingly clear you can almost see your reflection in them. They sparkle with intelligence and clarity of thought. Most of them are extremely attractive, with delicate noses, ears and lips. Her hand moves restlessly on her breast, as if she had a pain there.
Suppose, to make her happy, we whisper to her in her sleep that her child is coming back. She is really within two miles of the window now, and flying strong, but all we need whisper is that she is on her way. It is a pity we did it, for she has started up, calling Sally's name, and there is no one in the room but Heathcliffe. When Thursday week came, Sally at first planned to tiptoe in and place her hands over her mother's eyes. But then she realized that she must break the joyous news more gently.
For great joy is akin to great sorrow, and can be quite dangerous to the heart. She finally decided to just slip into her bed, and be there when they all came in next morning, just as if she had never been away. And so, when mother and father and Bill and Jill and Michael came in next morning, they saw Sally there, sleeping like a princess in a faerie tale. She waited for their cry of joy, but it did not come. They saw her, but they did not believe she was there. You see, they had seen her there so often, in their dreams, that they all thought this was just the old dream, hanging around them still.
Sally did not understand this, and a cold fear fell upon her. Don't you know me? At last, the truth of the miracle exploded within them, and there could not have been a lovelier sight on earth. There was no one to see it but a few straggling angels and druids who had stayed behind to watch He had ecstasies innumerable that we can never know; yet he was looking through the window at the one joy he could not join.
But they all knew he was there. Michael was certain he saw him grinning, and Jill thought she saw a copy of The New York Times tucked under his arm. There are really no words to describe it, at least none yet taught on this planet, but I am told, on good authority, that every single person in the room levitated..
And they flew about the room for many, many days. Later, they knew it had all truly happened, for they found, out on the street, beneath the window, a tattered and torn copy of the Times, with very small letters printed in ink at the very top of the page. Love Signs. Yet concerned men and women in all walks of Life, from geologists and ecologists to prophets and astrologers, persistently predict the possibility of approaching cataclysms, both man-made and natural, bringing the danger of annihilation before the critical next decade has passed on this waning planet, so fast losing light.
We have been warned, but few have heeded the warning. We have been called, but few have answered. For the Earth to wax again, clearly a miracle is needed. By learning to use the wisdom of the planets, our co-Creators' code to Universal Truth, we may each create a fragment of the rainbow-spectrum message of Peace on Earth to men There could be, I think, no greater prelude to a miracle so needed, perhaps approaching sooner than we guess, than to employ the art of ancient wise men to pave the way for his return with a new Star Quest for love For love alone has the power to bring peace at history's twilight hour to Earthlings of good will.
In the Year of Our Lord To All My Readers Love Signs contains a number of controversial concepts of a moral, philosophical and intellectual nature, in the areas of science and religion. To some of you, these concepts will be inspiring - to others, they will appear strange and startling - to still others they could be deeply disturbing. They are presented here as truth, and will be recognized as such by many of you - just as they may be viewed as otherwise by some. I've shared my personal discoveries of truth with you because I believe that any kind of search implies an obligation to exchange with others what has been found, in the interest of hastening the sunrise of harmony on Earth, the ultimate Peace.
However, I do not ask - nor do I even expect - any of you to regard my concepts as your truth, unless they should happen to agree with your own personal enlightenment and private convictions. Partial truth - the seeds of wisdom - can be found in many places. In primal instinct may partial truth be found.
The seeds of wisdom are contained in all scriptures ever written. But real Truth can be found in one place only - in every man's and woman's communion with an eternal Source of hidden Knowledge within - which each individual must seek and find for himself or herself. We may point out the path to others, but each must walk along that path alone - until every single "lost one" has made the whole journey - and all of us have finally reached the Light of full-born Wisdom at the end of the Way.
Foreword Like Peter Pan's shadow, curiosity about astral compatibility follows the astrologer "second from the right and straight on till morning. Is that why we fight so much? I've even found myself helpless in a dental chair, having a tooth extracted, while the attending doctor remarked, "Not that I believe in astrology, but what are my chances with a Capricorn woman?
It's a fact. There's nothing mysterious about the oldest art and science in the world, unless you choose to call the miracles of love and tolerance that result from using it "mysterious. As for those familiar characters in Neverland, Peter Pan and Wendy, although I've used some of their remarks throughout this book to symbolize, at various times, certain characteristics of all twelve astrological signs, Peter's personal Natal Sun was in the Mutable Air Element of Gemini when he was created.
Oh, yes! Peter was a Sun Sign Gemini - even though I use particular quotes of his to symbolize other signs in the book, a Sun Sign Gemini he was, who desired never to grow up, searching for something he never quite found, forever destined to be sure only of his own shadow, never of another human being - until, we trust, through eventual enlightenment, he learned at last the lesson of love.
Wendy was clearly a Cancerian - motherly, possessive, gentle and imaginative, trying out her wings in a flight of fancy under the Full Moon, as Moon Maidens often do. No strong Sun Sign harmony between them, you see, so they quarreled now and then, and each heard a different drummer. Wendy ended up in the final chapter as nearly all Cancerians do, safe and secure.
No matter how wistfully her heart longed to fly again, she chose home, marriage and children as her ultimate dreams; while Peter, like nearly all Geminis, continued his eternal search for a brighter rainbow, somewhere beyond It's worth all the time and trouble it takes to compare two horoscopes for compatibility, because when you find a trined, sextiled or conjuncted relationship between two Sun Signs - and also a trined, sextiled or conjuncted relationship between the mutual Sun and Moon Signs the signs transited by the Sun and the Moon at the time of both births - plus a positive interchange of the signs on the Ascendents with the Luminaries - love then takes on a deeper dimension.
All love is capable of energizing wishes into reality, but love between two people whose personal auras have thus harmoniously blended creates the kind of vibration poets write about, and can manifest marvelous magic. Wandering through the millions of couples on Earth who are attempting to achieve or have achieved satisfying contentment and fulfillment together and those who are still struggling through heavy sexual karmic testing - are those rare ones esoterically called "Soul Mates". The eyes have been rightly called "the windows of the soul. These are two who immediately sense the unalterable fact that they have been - are - and must always be One; even though they might have fought against their fate for centuries and struggled in vain to escape their linked destiny.
Almost from the first moment they meet and gaze upon each other, their spirits rush together in joyful recognition, ignoring all convention and custom, all social rules of behavior, driven by an inner knowing too overwhelming to be denied. Inexplicably, often without a word being spoken, they know that only through each other can they hope to find Wholeness - only when they're together can they both be Complete in every way.
Somehow, they feel Immortal, and they are. The solution to the problem of the "over-population" which rises to the mind as a result of such achievement by everyone on Earth must wait till a forthcoming book for a detailed discussion. Neither will I attempt to detail the origin and ultimate destiny of Twin Souls here, since I've done so in another forthcoming book, called Gooobers, to be published in the near future.
But there is so much burning curiosity concerning the subject of Soul Mates or Twin Souls, it bears some explanation here, however incomplete. A man and a woman who are Soul Mates hardly need to speak the words "I love you," knowing as surely as they do that they must belong to each other whether in this present incarnation lifetime - or due to karmic complications at the end of many more centuries. The words in the marriage ceremony "those which God hath joined together, let no man put asunder" refer to such as these.
Yet this warning is unnecessary, simply symbolic ritual, for no man can break the tie between Twin Souls, not even themselves. Nor can any energy in the Universe. The Force that created them is all-powerful and indestructible. The bond may be weakened, their final union and consummation delayed, but they cannot be separated permanently.
There can be no end to the kind of hap- The Superconscious or Supraconscious of each. This kind of instant magnetic attraction is often called "love at first sight," which is no accident of fate, but very real. It's more than curious coincidence that Twin Souls, out of the whole huge world, should be drawn together at the appointed time.
The crossing of their paths has been predestined on a Higher Level of Awareness. Certain spiritual energies are at work to bring about their meetings, as surely as the migration of birds and the return of comets are governed by a similar Universal Law. Their coming-together is controlled by the workings of Karma, which is but the sum total of Causes set into motion in the Past - and these determine infallibly the conditions of the Present. When the time comes for Twin Souls to incarnate, they are sent to Earth, clothed in flesh again, the bodies being the Temples of the soul through particular Time-Energy Forces, at the moment in Earth Time when certain planetary configurations create the proper conditions.
These Time-Energy Forces are electro-magnetic in nature, yet more complex than this. None of us can control the eventual results of the Causes we've initiated or set into motion in our past lives, although we can control our re-actions to the results such past Causes bring into the present lifetime. The "Free Will" to change these karmic events is possessed by the Higher Self, and we may attain such power by learning to tune into or communicate with the Higher Self Supraconscious.
But "Free Will" on a conscious level can only be realized in the Future - since, in the ever-moving stream called the Present, we are setting into motion, through actions we currently initiate and through our re-actions to past Causes - the future conditions we will inevitably meet. As for which particular planetary influences in the nativities horoscopes or birth charts of two people reveal to an astrologer the indication that these are Twin Souls, they are too intricate to comprehensively explain in this book, in their entire scope - and must await another volume planned concerning this and related subjects.
But assuming that such planetary influences are present in the respective charts of lovers, a destiny is revealed in which the two will meet involuntarily - and cannot be separated, even through the experience of death - except for temporary intervals of Earth Time in the present life, for the purpose of karmic soul-testing.
During these periods of being apart, however brief or however extended, both persons are lonely, empty and incomplete. Yet even throughout any such temporary spaces in their togetherness, there's a constant, pulsing astral communication between them - for even then, they are linked by a cord that connects them over the miles.
A woman I know was recently in a state of emotional anxiety, desperately needing communication with the man she loved a Twin Soul , who was out of the country. There was no way they could reach each other by phone or letter. One night, as she was lying in her bed in the dark, sensing his presence strongly but frustrated at being unable to see or hear or touch him, she cried out aloud, involuntarily, "Oh, why can't you hear me call you?
At the same moment, a large paper daisy he had given her months before dropped to the floor. Astonished, she sat up in bed, stared at the lamp and the fallen daisy and spoke aloud again. Before the incident, the lamp had been off for several hours, so this was no failure of electrical power. There was absolutely no scientific explanation for what occurred.
Neither All this was thoroughly checked. As for the daisy, it had remained securely in its place, fastened above a picture on the wall, for many months, until that unexpected moment. Such "miracles" are easily explained by the laws of metaphysics. The woman's Twin Soul had felt her need, and answered it, guided astrally by both their Higher Selves, through the silvery-blue cord connecting them, a thread of light actually visible to the physical vision of a trained psychic or sensitive. Later she learned that he was anxiously trying to reach her at exactly the same hour.
Those who love faithfully, and who understand how to use the cord of electrical energy that binds them together, don't need Western Union, the post office or the telephone company to communicate. They're always in touch through their astral "eastern-union.
The Libra Man, Libra the Scales by Linda Goodman
We still hear the shouts of science: "Give us the facts, the facts, the facts! Einstein was aware. Yes, Abstract Al knew. Someday very soon in this dawning Aquarian Age, the discovery of instruments sensitive enough to measure the tremendous energy of love's magnetic force field will demonstrate how its electrical impulses can interrupt Nature's laws but not adversely , reverse gravity and also reverse the aging process, through cell regeneration , increase telepathic communion and cause many other miraculous manifestations, including conscious recall of former incarnations, which will finally convince skeptical science.
Yes, love can do all this, if the desire is strong enough, and the motive unselfish - where enough faith and enough will are exerted. It happens every day. It's been frequently observed, by witnesses of credibility, that a ninetypound woman can lift the wheels of a two-ton truck if her child is caught beneath it - a complete reversal of the laws of physics but in absolute accord with the laws of meta-physics. Love is far more than an emotion or a feeling. Love is a positive electrical impulse. Science has not yet developed equipment delicate or sophisticated enough to detect these impulses; nevertheless, they do exist.
Buckle wrote, in his History of Civilization in England: " Even when the Soul Mate is at last discovered, there are often many complications and testings of worthiness which cause temporary pain. Only in continually and consistently practicing tolerance and forgiveness can the hurt be alleviated. To return pain for pain only creates the future certainty of a like reaction, of more pain, through the workings of karmic cause and effect.
Sometimes, it seems that the problems of two people who love each other are hopeless, the wall that separates them too high to ever surmount. But their problems would all dissolve, simply disappear, if they would only touch hands - No matter how great the injury, or how bitter the words, love will erase it all, as if it had never been. But not without the desire and effort to do so on the part of the one who has inflicted the pain - not without the quality of forgiveness on the part of the one who's been deeply hurt.
Desire, effort and forgiveness, intermingled, are necessary to release love's force and power. The fabled search for the Holy Grail is a dual quest. On a material or Earth level, it concerns the actual cup from which the Nazarene drank at the Last Supper, claimed by the ancients to have been buried near where the druidic priests descended from the Essenes held their mystic rites - its discovery imminent in the Age of the Water Bearer. On a higher, mystical level, the successful conclusion of the search for the Holy Grail is reached, for each human, at the time of reunion with the Twin Soul.
Aquarius Woman – Libra Man
For only when all lonely and separated Twin Souls are at last joyously reunited, will the pieces of Life's jigsaw puzzle form themselves into a whole and complete picture within the Universe. Legend whispers that it shall be during the dawning of the Age of Aquarius when the fourteen pieces of the soul of Osiris - scattered when his body was cut into fourteen pieces by his brother, Set causing the Earth's first Sun-Set - will come together in one man, "with all his scattered pieces whole.
At the same time, the long-ago-sundered Twin Souls of Set and his Nepenthys will be rejoined, to fulfill their destiny of discovering together the Grail of the Nazarene, through the blending of their auras.
Then, says legend, through the miracle of mutual forgiveness for that long-ago crime, Set and his brother, Osiris - along with Isis and her sister, Nepenthys, will in some way, together, find the lost records of Atlantis as well as the burial place of Osiris, which contains the records of the building of the Great Pyramid of Gizeh by Osiris not by Cheops, as falsely believed down through the ages.
When these great and holy events manifest themselves, following the recognition of these four and one other of the true identity of their own Higher Selves - many more Twin Souls will suddenly recognize each other. Then we shall at least begin to realize our blessed birthright, as supplicated in those singing lines of the Lord's Prayer: "Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on Earth, as it is in Heaven" as above, so below , changing the pattern of the Trinity of Solar, Stellar and Lunar energies in the cosmos.
Those who love deeply, and who are truly mated with the other half of themselves, have no desire to initiate wars, or to dominate others. As the devotion of Romeo and Juliet, even in death, had the power to dissolve the enmity and reconcile the differences between the warring Capulets and Montagues, so shall the ecstatic blending of all Twin Soul lovers have the same power to unite mankind and womankind, all Earthlings in permanent Peace and Good.
Pax et Bonum. It's not a coincidence nothing is that the man who initiated at least a beginning gesture toward Peace in the Middle East, Anwar Sadat, is a genuinely happily mated man, with a woman by his side who reflects the goals of his Higher Self - as is Menachem Begin, of Israel, who at least initially welcomed the gesture in an equal spirit of good will and sincerity. Nor was it coincidence that Hitler was a lonely, unloved man. Jesus - the carpenter from Nazareth? He was not alone. He was not unloved by woman. Although it is only a beginning, Scorpio Reverend William For he was only a man, albeit a highly evolved one - and she, only a woman.
Even as you. The doctrine of divinity, like the doctrine of patriotism, is a negative vibration, placing one man, one woman, one nation, above all others. Jesus, the Christ? Yes, he was more than human, a different entity, but no different, no more super human or divine than each man and woman may rise to become during those too rare and brief periods of tuning in to the individual Supraconscious. Anwar, the Christ.. Menachem, the Christ.. Ruth, the Christ. Robert, the Christ Thelma, the Christ.. Michel, the Christ..
Susan, the Christ.. Arthur, the Christ.. Christ is simply another term for the Holy Ghost or the Holy Spirit, which can enter into anyone. How could our Creator not have His counterpart? The polarity of positive-negative, masculine-feminine, exists in all dimensions, on all levels of awareness, within the galaxies of Heaven - and upon the Hell on Earth as it is presently manifest.
Jesus himself never claimed he was divine. Strange, that the word "discipline" contains the word "disciple. The predicted cataclysms, should they come, should we be unable to prevent them, have been set into motion by many forces of darkness. But sharing our love does not mean sharing our bodies in sensual group sexual experience. Gluttony is not the answer, to either kind of hunger.
Sex is not a sin; only the mis-use of its energy is a sin against the Higher Angel of one's own Self. Sexual union is the ecstasy of "deep" discovered by those who love, symbolic of a man and woman's blending with the Universe and all of Nature, in Oneness. It's a simple matter of priorities. You fall in love first - with your eyes. Then with your mind, then with your heart emotions. By now your soul has joined the experience - whether you realize it or not, you've "fallen in love" spiritually - and it's time to fall in love with your body.
It doesn't work when you take these steps in reverse. For only the eyes know how to lead you into the mind of the one they gaze upon. Only the mind knows how to lead you into the heart of the one with whom you've found a mental affinity. Only the heart knows how to lead you into union with the soul of the one you love. And the soul is well aware.. Using the body as an instrument for sex alone, without love, is like listening to a symphony on stereophonic equipment but using only one speaker. Yes, it is time for a Messiah. A Wayshower, who will once again remind us of the basic lessons of love he taught before, so soon forgotten.
For it makes no difference how far an individual or a nation has fallen into error; love will bring a renewed dedication to humanity. Just as it makes no difference how far away someone has gone, for love will bring a return. As poet Emmet Fox noted, when it is projected with sufficient intensity, there is no distance that love cannot span, no illness - moral, mental, emotional or spiritual - that love cannot heal.
No victory that love cannot win. Love is concentrated kinetic energy, the most awesome force in Nature. If only you could love deeply enough and sustain love long enough, you could become the source of your own miracles, as powerful as the ancient "gods and goddesses. Loving enough is not easy. Loving enough doesn't mean loving only those who love you, who are kind and considerate and generous. Loving enough means also loving those who "say all manner of evil against you," who hate you and actively demonstrate that hatred, who seemingly lack all compassion and sensitivity.
Anyone can return the love of those who love him - or her. There's little glory or power in that kind of love. We are incarnated in these flesh bodies on Earth to learn love's deeper, more difficult lesson of loving the unlovable. In this accomplishment lies all the force and energy of true passion. More often than not, it's a painful effort, but the rewards, when it's mastered, are. Never mind unnecessary religious "canonization" - you, too, can become a "saint" - if you can love enough.
In astrological terms, for a Lion and a Ram to love, for a Bull and a Goat to love - is nearly effortless. But for a Ram to achieve harmony with a Crab - the Lion with the Scorpion - the Bull with the Water Bearer - these demonstrate a higher love. Love Signs will attempt to guide those who are fortunate enough to be united with their own compatible Sun Signs - and also show the way to tolerance and harmony for those whose present karmic destiny has decreed the soul-testing of being involved in relationships with people of conflicting Sun Signs.
Even between two individuals whose Sun and Moon Signs harmonize, there are always some planets in their mutual nativities which clash, causing periodic friction and tension. To overcome this is to become tuned in to the pulsing frequency of the Higher Self, to begin the climb up the pathway to enlightenment. Like a bottomless cup, the Holy Grail of those who love is never empty.
In the Neverland mathematics of metaphysics, you see - the more miracles we give away to others, the more we have left for you and me. Who among us is not, at times, unlovable? And are not these the very times when we secretly yearn and need to be loved the most? I didn't hear them. For this most ancient alchemy secret of all is such a simple secret. And so, may the Force. May it prevent the predicted cataclysms of Nature, as well as the personal cataclysms of separation and divorce, through its prisms of Light. The Twelve Mysteries of Love It's not the threat of illness or poverty that crushes the human spirit, but the fear that there is no one who truly cares - no one who really understands.
We all reach desperately for love, no matter how healthy, wealthy or wise we may be, because the alternative is loneliness. And so love is sought both in heaven and in hell, by both saints and sinners, wherever the search may take them, and it takes them to some strange places in the Aquarian Age, through the maze of the sexual revolution. Say, what is this hang-up about sex? The swingers and the idealists, the puritans and prostitutes, the frigid and the promiscuous, the male chauvinists and the Women's Liberators, whether they read Browning or Playboy, whether they watch Walt Disney movies or the latest erotica from Sweden, are all looking for the same thing.
No matter which road they travel on their pursuit of happiness, the inner need that drives them on is love. Not to give it. Not to receive it. But to share it. To love and be loved in return. Why is lasting, mutual love so elusive? To reach a complete and permanent union with the other half the Twin Soul man and woman must learn the lessons of the twelve Sun Signs. They must master the wisdom of these Twelve Mysteries of Love before they can achieve a final, perfect harmony between their mental, physical, emotional and spiritual natures.
As we make the trip around the astrological or karmic wheel of life, through the rebirth under the influence of the various Sun Signs, sometimes progressing swiftly, sometimes lingering, many times returning to a certain Sun Sign experience to relearn old lessons - we evolve, each at his or her own speed. We are forced, by our own Superconscious selves, to gradually perfect the positive qualities of all twelve signs and purge our natures of their negative qualities, so that we each may eventually become the refined gold of a totally evolved entity, worthy to join the other half - the Twin Self.
In our longing for love - for our Twin Soul or Soul Mate - lies our latent metaphysical wisdom. The secret of life itself. Esoteric truth. Every Sun Sign contains a strength that can be reversed into a weakness, and every Sun Sign contains a weakness that can be reversed into a strength, through the law of positive-negative polarity.
What is Taurus stubbornness but Taurus patience turned upside down? What is Aries impulsiveness but the negative side of the Ram's positive Mars courage? Will Leo choose to use the great pride and nobility of the Leonine-Solar birthright for the positive purpose of protecting the helpless - or for the negative purpose of becoming an arrogant tyrant over the defenseless?
Will the sensible Cancerian caution be turned into Lunar fears and phobias? Will Pisces compassion and humility be reversed to the negative Neptune aspects of deception, introversion and escape? The choice of our Sun Sign polarities is always ours to take. And if we make the wrong choice we must relive that Sun Sign experience repeatedly, until we master the positive strength of that sign.
When one's understanding of this second quality equals that of the first, he or she has then achieved mastery of a particular Sun Sign. The key is the number twelve. There are 12 basic mineral salts used in homeopathy the most helpful of all branches of medicine. These 12 cell salts have a great power to influence a positive state of human health in each of their corresponding twelve Sun Signs, a fact comprehended only by homeopathic practitioners, not orthodox physicians except for a rare few of the latter.
Minerals of the Earth conform to the number 12, as do both the metric and duodecimal systems. Diamonds, for instance, possess 12 sides or axes, along which they must be cut to achieve brilliance. James, 12 Greek Gods and so forth. Long before the 12 sons of Jacob founded the 12 Tribes of Israel, the number thirteen 13 possessed a great mystical significance. The ancient Egyptian god-King, Osiris, was associated with 12 lesser kings, Osiris being their 13th member. Likewise did the Aztec god-king Quetzacoatl have 12 followers, he being the 13th of the group. The 12 disciples represent the twelve Sun Sign stages of learning - and the "Master" symbolizes the number thirteen 13 - or the purity of the perfect blend of all the other twelve into One Complete Whole.
As an example, each of the 12 apostles in the Christian Bible can be identified by esoteric astrologers with the Sun Sign quality embodied in that individual's particular attitude toward the teachings of Jesus. This interwoven JudaeoChristian-Islamic religious truth is manifested in the mathematical harmony and beautiful synchronicity of the horoscopic wheel. Spiritual ignorance, or blindness, causes the superstitious fear of the dread number " Yet, the true meaning of this holy number is wisdom. If used for evil it can bring great destruction.
But if used for good it can bring great regeneration. Used in its negative sense, it symbolizes the "Master," who is the blend of all twelve Sun Sign lessons, having become a "fallen angel," like Lucifer.
Used in its positive sense, it means exactly the opposite - an "angel" who remains steadfast, to wield power and wisdom everlasting, tempered with justice and mercy - and above all else - love. Numerology is an inescapable part of astrology.
The subject is too vast and complicated to be fully covered in Love Signs and will be discussed in detail in a forthcoming book. Meanwhile, however, the briefest mention of planetary numbers is necessary for a full comprehension of the Twelve Mysteries of Love. And each planet likewise harmonizes with and is governed by a particular number. For example: The Moon ruler of Cancer vibrates to the number Two 2.
Jupiter ruler of Sagittarius vibrates to the number Three 3. Uranus ruler of Aquarius vibrates to the number Four 4. Mercury ruler of Gemini and temporary ruler of Virgo, until Virgo's true ruling planet, Vulcan, is discovered and identified: see Virgo-Virgo chapter vibrates to the number Five 5. Venus ruler of Libra and temporary ruler of Taurus, until Pan-Horus is discovered as the true ruler of Taurus: see Taurus-Taurus chapter vibrates to the number Six 6.
Neptune ruler of Pisces vibrates to the number Seven 7. Saturn ruler of Capricorn vibrates to the number Eight 8. Mars ruler of Aries vibrates to the number Nine 9. Each planet and Luminary also vibrates to what is termed a "higher octave" number, but we'll leave a full explanation of this for the aforementioned forthcoming book. You might have noticed the omission of a number that vibrates to Pluto ruler of Scorpio in this list.
Many astrologers and students of numerology will tell you that Pluto vibrates to the number Nine 9 , sharing this number with Mars ruler of Aries. This is not true. Pluto, like all the other planets, vibrates to its own personal "number" - distinctly and individually its own - sharing it with no other planet or Luminary. Since we've already covered the numbers One 1 through Nine 9 - and Ten 10 as Leo's Sun vibration, bringing us back to One 1 again, full circle - you may wonder how Pluto can possess its own number.
You will see. Six and Nine. The Feminine and Masculine vibratory numbers, or 9 and 6. Male and Female. Notice that when the Feminine number of Venus - Six 6 is turned upside down reversing its polarity , it becomes a Nine 9. Likewise, when the Masculine number of Mars - Nine 9 is turned upside down reversing its polarity , it becomes a Six 6. Man and Woman then - are inseparable. Each is an equal part of the other. The Masculine-Feminine Principles are totally interchangeable. Yet, one is always aiming in a direction reverse from the other.
There are many more fascinating and revealing levels to the study of Six and Nine in numerology, but we're only touching the subject briefly here. We'll discuss it in depth in a future book. Notice that both the Six 6 and the Nine 9 when the "tail" is removed become a circle. The circle is the secret of Twin Soul blending - the deepest mystery of the Sun Sign of Scorpio, and Scorpio's ruling planet, the awesome, The circle.
The circle 0 represents Eternity, for it symbolizes the Serpent, eating its own tail. From the Masculine Positive head of the Serpent flows the male-positive energy force - into the Female Negative tail of the Serpent. Simultaneously, from the Feminine Negative tail of the Serpent flows the female-negative energy force into the Serpent's Masculine Positive head. This is the secret of Scorpio, the Sun Sign of "sex" - and this is the energy behind the great Power of Scorpio's ruling planet, Pluto. The Circle. The Serpent, eating its own tail.
The symbol of Eternity. For only when all polarities - male and female, youth and age, dark and light, night and day - thus feed energy simultaneously into one another, and blend their energies - rather than continue to oppose one another - can true power exist. Pluto's vibratory Zero also contains the secret mystery of Christianity's Holy Trinity. The "Holy Ghost" Christ spirit is feminine energy. This Third Energy, composed of the Masculine and Feminine combined, flowing into each other, and not in opposition, creates many miracles: The Great Power of Divinity.
The conception of a child. The conception of an idea adding the "1" for love, this becomes an ideal. The energy that powers spacecraft from other solar systems. It is in no way an accident that Kekule, who made the monumental discovery of the benzine ring structure, which paved the way for the theoretical aspect of organic chemistry, said that he dreamed repeatedly of "a snake, eating its own tail" before the concept occurred to him.
Therefore, all the mysterious Pluto-Scorpio "power" comes from a subconscious knowledge of this Zero principle that the perfect blend between Masculine and Feminine creates a Third Energy Force, which is both, yet neither - neutral and ALL-POWERFUL - because it does not oppose, but causes polarities to simultaneously blend and flow into each other. Any banker or mathematics student can tell you that it "increases" the power of the number. Obviously, the sum of one dollar grows larger has more "power" as you "add the zeros.
That's nice for all Scorpios to know - as long as they don't forget what causes the power. The Serpent, eating its own tail - Eternity's Secret. An important building block to the comprehension of the Twelve Mysteries of Love, related to the secret of the circle, is the following. You'll come across the use of the term "co-Creators" many times in this book.
To the skeptical, who find it difficult to image the "Old Testament God" with a Mate of His own, I offer this scholarly source, although the faithful and the spiritually wideawake need no proof, other than instinctive knowledge from within, regarding this or any concept of the truth of creation. The following quotation is from a painstaking translation of the Septuagint, the earliest known circa B.
The translation was published by the Falcon's Wing Press in , under the editorship of Dr. From Proverbs excerpts : For at the gates of the Mighty, She hath taken a seat, and at the entrance thereof chanteth Her song: I was the one in whom He delighted, and I was daily gladdened by His presence on all occasions. By such deception we have been deprived of a sublime and ennobling truth. But the unfolding of the Aquarian Age, foretold by all prophets of all religions, will bring the Light of the conscious restoration of the Golden Balance between the Feminine and Masculine energies on Earth.
This Golden Balance is the eventual blending of all Twin Souls. Its concept lies ready to burst forth within all yearning, searching hearts. And it begins with the recognition of the Male-Female truth hidden in the Holy Trinity and the symbol of Eternity - the Serpent eating its own tail - the secret "knowledge" given by the "Serpent" to Eve, who passed it on to Adam. That this eating of the "forbidden fruit" of the "Tree of Knowledge" was later called "Original Sin" reveals the desperation of the dark forces to hide the Light of Truth by a polarity distortion, channeled through the ancient patriarchs who feared losing the masculine superiority principle through sexual equality.
And the Aquarian Age sons of Adam will this time be enlightened to Eve's wisdom. Not even the Church "Fathers" can stop the lightning of the predestined and foretold Uranian spiritual awakening of the New Age of Golden Balance. Perhaps Adam couldn't handle the truth. But today's Water Bearers can - and will. Under the powerful Uranus vibes and the Aquarian microscope, all deception will be exposed for the hypocrisy it is.
And this shall be called "Original Innocence" - the beginning of Wisdom. When people all throughout the world enter into cooperation with these Divine principles of the Golden Balance of Male and Female, the New Age of Aquarius will finally manifest itself in all the splendor and magnificence of the reborn and wiser Atlantis. Not all the chauvinists and atomic and nuclear energy madmen combined can stop the Uranian tidal waves of Truth.
As man and woman evolve around the astrological karmic circle, absorbing the qualities of other Sun Signs into their own individualities - teaching some, learning from others - each has a spiritual obligation to retain the positive integrity of his or her own Sun Sign in this incarnation and also to respect that right in others.
The Lion must have his dignity, as the Crab must cling to security. The Goat must honor tradition, as the Twins must demand their freedom. Each must follow the Aquarian Age adage to "live and let live," to be yourself, and realize that others must be themselves too.
The first step toward comprehending love's ultimate meaning - toward finally being permitted to enjoy its absolute fulfillment - is to learn to tolerate instead of condemning the Sun Sign qualities different from our own. In exploring the interrelationships of the twelve Sun Signs, through both their harmonious and their conflicting traits of character as they relate to our This journey is a kind of growing of the spirit, from soul-infancy through soul-adulthood, middle-age, "old age" and death, then rebirth.
The soul can be freed of this endless circle of birth and death only when we learn to free the physical or dense body, also, of death; a miracle I dare to predict will occur much sooner than we now believe. The "problem" such longevity would create, in relation to the general world population new births, along with the conquering of death - for centuries - etc. But this is not the place to attempt to conceive of the possibilities. An in-depth discussion of such a future in the approaching "New Age" must wait for my next book.
The soul's symbolic journey through the twelve Sun Signs may be comprehended by imaging man and woman undergoing, with their minds and bodies, a matching journey. First, the soul enters the initial phase, similar to earthly birth, then advances through various further stages similar to earthly life, gaining spiritual experience from each, just as we gain mental and physical experience from a similar type journey of our dense bodies. The soul is "born'' in the sign of Aries, the symbolic Infant, as reflected through the Sun's magnetic alchemy.
