At the same time your spiritual yearnings lead you to the best expression of your being on this higher level. Finally, you learn to direct your will so that all efforts satisfy both your material desires and your spiritual aspirations. You may find from time to time that you are faced with this question: are my actions being driven by material desires, or am I following my spiritual aspirations?
The answer helps to refine your awareness of your deepest motivations. Proper care of the physical body is important for your spiritual expression. As you emphasize the wholeness and wellness of the physical body, you metaphorically focus on the wholeness and wellness of your spiritual being. The neck and throat become a powerful physical focus for your expression.
Because proper speech is so important to you, the organs of speech and the thyroid gland are your most valuable physical attributes. Voice training or other attention to the throat and throat chakra may be important to your development of clear communication. But first you need to listen, to others and to your inner voice. You have the capacity to understand the duality of the material world and to penetrate the paradoxes that arise in your life.
You can learn to see the ebb and flow of energies in your inner experience and in the outer world, and you understand that the attraction and repulsion of these energies leads to eventual synthesis. You perceive that sexual desire is one expression of duality on the physical level. The power of this duality provides the impulse to transcend mere physical desire and to discover the mystical union of forces.
As you gain in experience, your sexual expression may deepen into the ritual of Tantra. Then you will feel the blossoming of spiritual awareness on a higher vibratory level. Perhaps the greatest challenge you face is the transmutation of knowledge into wisdom.
Emerald Astrology – From Inspiration to Manifestion
You have to develop spiritual awareness in order to go beyond stubborn attachment to personal desires. Your temper will give way to spiritually directed effort. Blind pursuit of self-interest will give way to a spiritual focus. Self-pity will give way to a concern for all humanity.
Others often see you as a rock of strength, solid, reliable, dependable, and constant. You are, in fact, amazingly consistent for you possess great powers of endurance and do not like to make changes or adjustments in your regular routine.
You do things deliberately and methodically and do not easily accommodate the unexpected. Though you have a gentle, even soft, appearance, you are enormously strong-willed and stubborn. You go at your own pace and refuse to be rushed or pushed into anything before you feel sure about it. You can be coaxed and persuaded by charm, beauty, love, or affection — but never forced.
When you have a purpose, you are extremely fixed, immovable, and bull-headed about it. Your obstinacy is often infuriating to others, especially since it takes much provocation to make you flare up or respond to their anger. You appear calm, unruffled, and non-emotional most of the time, but behind your easygoing and peaceable appearance there lies great strength.
When it comes to a contest of wills, you often win simply due to your relentless persistence, your ability to outlast just about anyone. Another reason for your slowness to make changes is your very strong need for security.
You are most comfortable in stable, relatively unchanging conditions and you also have a strong desire for tangible security — a home of your own, money in the bank, job-security, etc. The other side of your steadiness is that you easily get caught in a rut and will stay in a familiar situation be it job, marriage, or whatever long after it has lost its vitality and interest.
You have a keen appreciation of the natural world and get much happiness from simple creature comforts and the physical world, with all of its myriad delights. You are quite sensual in a very natural, wholesome way and you know how to enjoy yourself. You are appealing to others in an earthy way.
You are also a great lover of beauty and your tastes are basically conventional or classic — not modern. Brendan Fraser. Serena Williams.

Study of ourselves and our world around us gives us a better understanding of some of the most difficult questions that humanity asks itself. This will stand us in good stead for our own advancement along the Path of Attainment. After all, we all want to better ourselves in this life and in the next. A study of the Ageless Wisdom is also most important so that we may be able to understand in our own minds how esoteric astrology may work for us in reality. In can also give us the answers to the many and varied questions that some people ask that seemingly have no answer.
For example, why is one person born into a relatively comfortable existence and another born into sheer poverty and suffering? It would seem futile if this was a random happening in the life of a loving God. What is life for and why am I here? An understanding of the twin laws of Rebirth and Consequence law of Karma is vital to make sense of the workings of esoteric astrology, the Seven Rays which in their turn gives us the satisfactory answers to many of these questions.
An understanding of three vital factors has to be considered before esoteric astrology can be applied: 1. The application of exoteric astrology by way of interpreting the signs planets and houses at the personality level: everyday astrology, 2. The intuitive ability to recognize the level on which these energies are expressing themselves and the nature of their interrelationships SA p15 This last point necessitates a certain ability at Soul level having been achieved.
The developed intuition is important as we are told in the Ageless Wisdom that this quality is part of the progress the disciple makes upon the Path now and in the coming Aquarian Age. Let us look at how astrology works for us and how the rays inform the planets and signs with their influences. Until we do, the soul rulers of the various signs have little or no effect. Esoteric Astrology is centred around the Soul Ray whose force is focused through the Ascending Sign, and which is then distributed though the esoteric planetary rulers.see url

Esoteric astrology concerns itself primarily with the unfoldment of consciousness, with the impacts which awaken it to the peculiar "gifts" of any particular sign and ray endowment and with the reaction of the man and his consequent enrichment through his response to the influence of a sign, working through the esoteric planets from the angle of humanitarian awareness, of discipleship and of initiation.
