The Individuality

   The Rosicrucian Cosmo-Conception tells us that there is only one way of showing our Faith, and that is by our Works.

   Therefore, as you continue the study of this Divine Science of Astrology, realize that you are becoming the steward of specialized knowledge which must only be used in order to serve humanity.

   Service is the Keyword and it can never be repeated too much nor too often.

   It does not matter in what department of life you are placed, whether you are high or low, rich or poor. It is immaterial whether you are engaged in some menial task, or whether it is your privilege to lead and manage affairs in the world's work. It is absolutely unessential whether your hands are grimy with the lowest labor, perhaps digging a sewer to maintain the health of the community, or whether they are soft and white as required when nursing the sick.

   The determining factor which decides whether any class of work is spiritual or material is our attitude in the matter.

   The person who does the most menial labor may be far more spiritual than the leader in the world's work; far more sincere and devoted than a hypocritical teacher who pretends to spirituality, but is corrupt within.

   A kind look, an expression of confidence, a sympathetic and loving helpfulness, can all be given regardless of wealth.

The Individuality

   As man is made in the image of God, who is threefold in manifestation, so astrologically, the higher Self in man is represented by a circle with the central point denoting the highest, spiritual aspect, the Divine Spirit whose faculty is Will. Therefore, the Sun stands in the horoscope as the highest expression of the Individual Self. It denotes the positive outgoing influences in man, his character in the highest sense of the word. Ref., Page 147, Simplified Scientific Astrology.)

   The Sun represents the Ego, the Individual, the Spirit in Man. Its place in a horoscope, together with its aspects, shows the method and coloring and manner if ingress of the spiritual forces which go to make up his present life expression.

   The Sun is man's spiritual power house. (Ref., Pages 86, 258, 265, 390 and 391, The Rosicrucian Cosmo-Conception.)

Spiritual Strength

   Of an individual is shown in the complete sense by the Sun, Jupiter, Uranus, and Neptune. However, the Sun is the main factor, the other planets lending color, harmony or discord, assistance or hindrance, in the matter. (Ref. Page 147, Simplified Scientific Astrology.)

   And so, Fellow Student, when you seek the inner man, look to the Sun.

   First, its sign; second, its aspects; third, its house position. In the chart that we are delineating there are but four aspects: the conjunction with the Moon, the parallel to Mars, the parallel to Part of Fortune, and the sextile to Neptune.

Sun Parallel Part of Fortune:

   Assists the Ego, the spiritual man, to gleam valuable experience and soul growth through material and financial circumstances, and efforts of the physical body. (There is a danger of losses by over-generousity and prodigality.)

Answers to Lesson No. 1:

  1] Obviously a frank open mind (Ascendant parallel Mercury), concealing a balance and depth of mental power (Ascendant parallel Saturn) which is courageous and continuously persistent (Ascendant trine Saturn), and when necessary, having a natural bent for business and making money. Also he can be subtle, deceptive, and wily (Ascendant square Neptune). These conditions give him ample opportunity for soul-growth (Ascendant parallel Part of Fortune).

(e) Mercury parallel Ascendant -- Gain through mental application. Scholastic success, quick-witted; acute, inquiring mind . . . always wants to know the "reason why." Nervous, and restless at times, but intensifies mental qualities.
