that no ultimately
matter what form we attach ourselves becomes uncomfortable, unsuitable, or
to, it simply
in our search
for an enduring
futility of looking outside external structures (h).
After a time we begin to look within and cultivate a „tree of stability‟ (Y) that has its roots at the core of our soul. We start then to develop an inner fortitude—a disposition that is unshakeable in the face of external change (h). The spirit (Y) strengthens our emotional body, providing us with internal and external support and nuture according to our evolutionary and creative needs. In Cancer we must learn to draw upon our inner spiritual fortitude, and trust in its power to materialize whatever foundation is needed to support our growing sense of purpose.
Leo: (Vh, hw, Son-Daughter). The Son shines his light upon the Daughter and she reflects his radiance within the darkness of Earth (form) like the full moon in the night sky. This sub-formula characterizes the general nature of the vertical axis (i.e. the Above-Below axis) of the YHVH mandala.19 It represents a channel that must be opened between personality and soul before the Father and Mother principles can fully consummate Their divine union. The Knight must train his Page to respect and serve him (and thereby, indirectly serve the King). The soul teaches the
personality aspect to consciousness) instead
personalities of other people. The soul principle dispels the illusion of personality love, and evokes the realization that true personal fulfillment and satisfaction can only be achieved by unfolding the inner self.
When we are overly identified with the second term (h) of the Vh couplet we can be very attached to the forms (h) that we create. We can also be unduly influenced by the personality reactions of friends (h), etc. For example: If the primary aim of an artist (V) is to please his audience (h) he may lose touch with his unique creative spark (V). In other words, we can become driven by the emotional needs and insecurities of our own ego, and by the responses of other personalities who we are trying to impress.
