Taking a break from Jupiter, Pluto, the Galactic Center and Mars retrograde, let's reconsider some primary factors in our lives. Though Astrology teachs us what, why, and when the pulses of our Reality manifest, the "7 Sacred Planets" also symbolize greater forces and things. For example, each planet is associated with a color, tone, and Chakra, the bodily magnetic centers that receive and transmit Electric Fire. If you've wondered why the number 7 is so special, you'll definitely want to read on.
Though written a while ago, these articles bear checking out again even if you've already read them. The Seven Rays offers a look at the 7 Pure energies that pervade our system, and infuse everything from our personalities to our Spiritual Disciplines to our friends and professions. By understanding these 7 energies we learn what we are good at, and how we can become better in every way. Though only a brief sketch, by contemplating how these energies are everywhere and we're all using some combination of them all the time we can understand the "departments of labor and skill" in our Reality.
The other article that can reveal many possibilities of higher awareness is The Seven Planes of Consciousness and Matter. This outlines the different frequency levels of consciousness in our scheme, from the densest to the most subtle. Our physical Reality is merely the densest of the 7 frequency zones, and this will guide you through the others. They aren't really levels as much as interpenetrating frequency zones that all coexist simultaneously within us and outside us.
I'll compose something on the correlations between the planets and the Chakras in the future. For now, these two should whet your appetites! Enjoy!
