During this current full moon period, it is interesting to note the action of Mars – still transiting through Leo, stimulating the lower will in the solar plexus centre which Mars rules.
On its two-year cycle, it is about to conjoin the star Dubhe (15Leo23), now and until Sept 21; it is the pointer nearest the pole star, Polaris. Some following snippets from Esoteric Astrology by Alice Bailey on the significance of these two pointer stars:
“The Pointer nearest to the Pole Star is expressive of a lower aspect of the will, which—in speaking of humanity—we call self-will.” (EA196) …. “this Pointer and the energy emanating from it guides humanity upon the involutionary path, and is constantly active in its influence upon the man who is still upon the Mutable Cross.” – (EA196)
Then by Sept 27, transiting Mars will conjunct the pointer furthest from the pole star, Merak:
“The Pointer furthest from the Pole Star in the constellation of the Great Bear. This is, esoterically speaking, a great reservoir or focal point for divine energy, carrying out God’s purpose.(EA196)
“Then the energy of the Pointer furthest from the Pole Star begins to make its presence felt and a sense of right direction or guidance is registered by the disciple upon the Path, and such guidance (when followed) leads man nearer to the Hierarchy.”
