EQUINOX: Point of Balance

EQUINOX: Point of Balance: Dream Info Session No. 140

    Not likely you'd ever actually dream the word equinox, but you may dream symbols or situations that point you that direction. So while we've discussed Solstice here (see Session 126 WINTER SOLSTICE: Ancient Door Of The Gods), the symbolism of the Equinox is still unaccounted for.

    Equinox is the symbol for a point of balance and a change in the Soul's development - the Soul itself represented by the Sun's movement through the heavens. A line has been crossed and a new process begun with each Equinox, a chance for having learned, and for new learning. Pretty important stuff.

    The process of Involution is begun when the Sun (the Logos/Word) manifests on the Upper Planes of Existence, beginning with the point associated with Aries and moving through the territories of the Zodiac. Involution represents the descent of Spirit into Matter, the limiting of Spirit by forms. Evolution represents the resurrection or liberation of Spirit from this captivity.

    As the Logos (Sun) passes through the six northern signs of the Zodiac, the process of Involution of the Soul's qualities progresses with each lesson. As the Zodiac passes through the six southern signs, Evolution will eventually be completed and those qualities of the Soul ultimately returned to God or Divine Consciousness. Interesting symbolism, no?

    The Zodiac itself is a symbol of the Great Cycle of Life, an ancient symbol for the cycles through which the Soul is able to complete its development, its spiritual journey. But this journey is a spiral, not a circle - a reaching higher from where you were with each passing Equinox. Each sign of the Zodiac symbolizes a specific kind of human experience of growth, the lessons to be mastered before liberation is achieved.

    Spring is of course the symbol for the beginning of a new cycle of life, the symbol for Divine Life on the Higher Planes of Existence after liberation from the Lower Levels. Spring as an archetype represents life in the realm of the Higher Mind - you're on your way up the ladder in a new cycle, with what often looks like the same old lessons. But remember that spiral - you're actually slightly higher in learning those lessons.

    Okay. That's enough for you to chew on for now. See you next week. In the meantime, keep reaching up - you might as well aim for where you're going....
