I consider to share this with you, and you may do with it as you please. The theological knowledge incorporated here, could be in value of some
of you, I guess. This is my personal work on the Great Art, I developed a overall explanation for beginners of the alchemical rebirth process,
considered of the conscious, or how some pity imposters call it "The great Work".
Again, do with it as you please.
Six Axis Method
8-2 Inertia “Earth-Air”
9-3 Mobility “Fire-Air”
10-4 Rhythm “Earth-Water”
11-5 Activity “Water-Air”
12-6 Wisdom “Fire-Water”
1-7 Will “Fire-Earth”
Inertia/Realization: "Calcination" (Scorpio overpowers Taurus)
About: The confrontation of the self with its shadow - its deepest pain, and the initial avoidance of that pain through addictions, eventually leading
to the healing of the self (and therefore others) through persistent self-acceptance in facing one's 'issues.' Being able to BE, and needing
Strength: Potential for tremendous self-sufficiency, and the radiation of peace and love.
Weaknesses: Tendency to look to external supports as indulgences and avoidances. Looking outside to avoid being fully present. Difficulty in
surrendering control and in embracing emotion. Lazy or difficult habits that maintain inertia and prolong the inevitable.
Paradoxical Solution: If one can cultivate True Beingness, then one really needs nothing more. Yet that is the first time one can handle the presence
of wealth, power, wisdom, food, drink, sex, and relationships without misusing them to attempt to establish an external security. One can fully be
present to the world and all of its pleasures only when one does not need them as supports.
Calcination - Psychologically, this is a destruction of the lower ego and our attachment to material possessions.
Mobility/Direction: "Dissolution" (Sagittarius overpowers Gemini)
About: Fun. The flow of creative, artistic and mental abilities coupled with the yearning to experience, know, and express more. The challenge to
discipline, commit, and narrow the focus so one can express and experience The Truth / True Creativity.
Strength: A playful, open spirit willing to be open to new possibilities, and enjoy them.
Weaknesses: Lack of focus and maturity; creative potential neglected through scattered forces or lack of confidence in oneself. Over-learning -- the
desire to know more preventing a deeper experience; the addiction to the mental realm can prevent actualization. The mind may never calm down enough
to assume its proper role as a servant, not master. Play can eclipse responsibility.
Dissolution - can be experienced as "flow," the bliss of being well-used and actively engaged in creative acts without traditional prejudices,
personal hang-ups, or established hierarchy getting in the way. The Second stage is the "Journey into Self", as Union with the Higher Self," and is
called by Dr. Carl G. Jung "The Process of Individuation." - Individuation is the conscious realization of one’s unique psychological reality,
including both strengths and weaknesses which allow the individual to defer the momentary needs of shadow and persona and serve the Self as the
regulating center of the psyche.
Paradoxical Solution: The greatest expression of Innocence and Creativity comes from growing up and learning to be a focused, responsible adult. Once
this is achieved, one's childlike simplicity and creative nature can be fully realized. The child must grow up, and then it can transcend the adult
and return to the awakened child. Discipline and grounded practicality are the soil for the child to be reborn in its true potential.
Rhythym/Foundation: "Separation" (Capricorn overpowers Cancer)
About: The yearning to support one's society through developing relationships and family, as well as material and public roles and service. The
ability to change to be effective in working and getting along with others. Emotional and physical/practical support for others.
Strengths: Caring, dedication, sensitivity, contribution to the world.
Weaknesses: Changeability creates a lack of authentic self-expression. Sensitivity creates emotional fortresses, distrust, and fear (separation of
true self from others). The emphasis on giving creates a difficulty with receiving. Giving so much can lead one to leave 'strings attached.'
Paradoxical Solution: One's first and most important responsibility is to nurture oneself. By receiving as much as one is willing to give, one
becomes whole, and then one's simple loving presence does more than all that one has ever 'done' before.
Separation - In Psychological terms, the process of Separation retrieves the frozen energy released from the breaking down of habits and crystallized
thoughts (assumptions, beliefs, and prejudices) and hardened feelings (emotional blockages, neuroses and phobias). This misspent energy is now
available to drive our Spiritual Transformation.
Activity/Surrender: "Conjunction" (Aquarius overpowers Leo)
About: The flow of creative and charismatic energy into group situations to lead or inspire others and take groups to new levels. The development of
the individual self to be able to contribute to the community.
Strengths: Confidence, uniqueness, genius, and eccentricity. Social Orientation.
Weakness: Self-aggrandizement, ego, and selfishness. Shifting the importance from the good of all to the excessive importance of oneself. One's rigid
opinions, ambition, or self-centeredness gets in the way of humble, compassionate service (true leadership).
Paradoxical Solution: The best leader strives to be invisible and unworshipped. By giving for the pure enjoyment of giving, rather than for what
benefits one may accrue from giving, one's service remains free from egotism and power-seeking. One must identify oneself as all people, then one
will not live to compete, gain, and profit for oneself.
Conjunction - Psychologically, It is empowerment of our true selves, the union of both the feminine and masculine sides of our personalities into a
new belief system or an intuitive state of consciousness. The alchemist referred to it as the Lesser Stone, and after it is achieved, the adept is
able to clearly discern what needs to be done to achieve lasting enlightenment, which is union with the Overself. Often, synchronicities begin to
occur that confirm the alchemist is on the right track.
Wisdom/Acceptance: "Fermentation" (Pisces overpower Virgo)
About: The overcoming of guilt, sadness, fear, and self-criticism through the awakening of compassion for oneself and others, leading to effortless
Strengths: Humility, growth through crisis, discontent which generates action/surrender, and an orientation towards service and wholeness.
Weaknesses: Neglecting compassion for oneself and not allowing the recognition of one's inherent self-worth. Over-giving or overworking which
perpetuates that illusion that there is something wrong with others and oneself (that something needs to be fixed), or preventing one from relaxing
and allowing oneself to truly receive love. Being overly consumed with one's problems, sorrow, or growth, perpetuating a cycle of self-absorption.
