Aries 9. A woman ironing white linen.
She drags the heavy iron over the white linen, pushing the shadows out of it. A place must be made for the light, a place where it may fall evenly. Linen to cover bodies, to wrap mummies, to hang on the wall where it may receive pictures, moving or still. The linen bears the imprint of whatever touches it, is prone to infestations of darkness which come to live in its shadows. She the protector of the linen, the disperser of darkness.
A man slowly grinding the picture off a stone.
When the seer Anarand died there were many pictures of him which had been painted on stone. the reason stone was chosen as a basis on which to depict him is that he was famous for having taught of the means of addressing those most hard and difficult places within the self.
It was decided, though, by the wise that all depictions of him must be rubbed clean, the stone ground down until his image disappeared. For he also taught that personality and identity are the most difficult challenges the self faces, and to go beyond these is the goal.
It has since become traditional in Aab to paint portraits of this great Sage and then deface them in the manner described, many of these blank stones adorning the homes and temples of Aab.
Aries 9: TRANSCENDENT VISION or REFINEMENT OF PERCEPTION
Omega Symbol: A woman ironing white linen. You’re intent on seeing the truth, on understanding the light. The only thing that blurs this is the old stuck places inside yourself, and the old emotional yearnings and fears that were never resolved. As you continue to release these everything becomes progressively clearer to you, so that you can more purely be a light to other people.
To remove the wrinkles means to remove the shadows so the light is provided with a surface from which it can reflect clearly and purely. This clear surface is the purified consciousness, free of the pain body and released into bliss.
Pleiadian Symbol: A man wandering through a wondrous landscape inside a crystal sphere. Contacting the magic and beauty within the realm of one’s current limits. The ability to perceive cosmic energies within the confines of the tangible world.
Chandra Symbol: A fat man in a state of reverie smoking a hookah. The ponderous body sinks into earth, the light smoke drifts toward heaven. The thoughts rise up – a yearning for elevation, for expansion, to escape gravity and the heavy frequencies of earth. Let yourself be mesmerized by your own imaginative visions and yearning to be at one with the glorious spiritual realities of which they are mere reflections.
Azoth Symbol: A man slowly grinding the picture off a stone. A return to purity and emptiness after the process of creation.
