Sagittarius "is the energetic activity of the life force, demonstrating at the sixth month, when esoterically speaking the three aspects of the form nature and the three aspects of the soul are integrated and functioning. It is this integration which sometimes makes the sixth month of physical human gestation so critical" (Esoteric Astrology, p. 345). "We are told that Sagittarius governs the thighs, which are the main centre of physical power and protective strength, and also the sacral centre which provides the energy for the use of the creative powers of the physical life. This is also symbolically true. In Sagittarius, the disciple has two things to discover within himself: these are the power to make progress upon the path and to walk the Way, and also the ability to create in the higher and spiritual sense" (EA, p. 191).
Both of the symbolic esoteric truths for humanity and disciples seem critical at this time physical power and protective strength, and creative powers of physical life with an ability to create in the higher and spiritual sense. The many ideological battles playing out within the mind of humanity having to do with the past values vs. the future values as the soul integrates with material form life causing significant chaos and conflict in physical and material living. Even as the masses and groups rise up, inspired by a vision of the future and the newer values, those entrenched in the status quo and the values and habits of the past dig deeper into defensive posturing over traditional values and historic methods of material expression. The inner battle of the one humanity rages as the soul of humanity seeks to become fully integrated into physical material expression through the manifestation of the higher soul realization and values. Perhaps this is the critical sixth month of gestation of the incarnating one soul of humanity, "the energetic activity of the life force, when esoterically speaking the three aspects of the form nature and the three aspects of the soul are integrated and functioning" (EA, p. 345).
The gestation of form life and its integration with soul energy in the womb is analogous to the gestation of the Christ consciousness within the womb of matter. Humanity identified with its form or matter gestates and then births the Christ consciousness and 'humanity identified as soul', humanity the spiritual disciple, is born and awakens out of the trance of the instincts of the form nature and its karmic past into an enlightened awareness of its spiritual nature and creative ability. There is evidence of this awakening across the world even as there is evidence of the revelation of the battle between the past and the future. The vast majority of human units of consciousness are aware of the critical nature and events of this time, though the ideas of why it is such a critical time vary widely according to the prevailing desires and goals of any particular individual or group and their level of awareness and awakeness to the inner spiritual realities. The varying and uneven level of awakeness of the human units merely indicates the process of integration as it occurs unevenly and the varying levels of the evolution of the spiritual consciousness that is occurring. The incredible unevenness creates more clouding and confusion unless seen with the eyes of the intuitive soul, which is aware of the Plan for the evolution of the spiritual consciousness within the form world.
One can perceive the integration moving forward successfully as the varying levels of spiritual consciousness within humanity are all able to embody the inspiration of the future and the higher values and then work together to transform the past. The masses of men and women rising up and expressing their inspired desire to a personal life free from the shackles and now oppressive nature of the traditions and habits of the past ways the human civilization and systems have dictated right living. Economics, government, education and all the systems of human living that impose the old values and desires of consumerism, profit, and competitiveness, all that hinder or blocks the newer values of unity, sustainability, and service are challenged and risen up against. The inspired advanced men and women working in various fields of human civilization and expression work from within to change the status quo to be more receptive and expressive of the newer higher values of the incoming soul. And, those awakened to spiritual creativity begin to manifest and reveal the reality of those worlds, faculties, and capabilities and incorporate them into the new culture that is evolving.
Perhaps the crucial recognition during any critical time is held within the keynote of Sagittarius "I see the goal. I reach that goal and then I see another." Do we see clearly the new goal? Do we see clearly the hindrances and obstacles to that goal? Are we as a striving group of servers doing our utmost to move humanity towards that goal using and expressing the needed spiritual creativity?
There is a platitude that a problem is never solved on its own level. There is tremendous conflict and chaos that is occurring as a result of the conflux of the incoming and the existing, the new and the old, the higher and the lower. This may be taken as a sign of the tremendous power of the incoming and its ability to stir up all that already exists within human civilization and consciousness. Perhaps the power of the incoming energy is to be celebrated. And the solution to the conflict and chaos will not be solved on its own level. It will require the higher incoming values of the future to solve the existing chaos and problems because the cause of the conflict itself is related to the cross currents of the newer and the old, the higher and the lower, the past and the future. Humanity is moving into its future. The past is becoming absorbed and transformed into the future. The disciple group is striving into its higher spiritual creativeness.
So Be It. And so let us see the vision clearly and express the needed spiritual creativeness simply as part of the new manifesting reality, thus evoking it and receiving it and expressing it through our spiritual faculties and capacities.
