How Libra these last half a dozen images feel. This one—A Man Watches His Ideals Taking A Concrete Form Before His Inner Vision—is seriously so. Here at 6° Libra we are under the rule of Virgo, the mutable-earth sign that is all about shaping, molding, composing, taking form. I remember back in the late middle 80s being a bit ahead of the curve of my other cronies, praising the power of crystals, building my inner temple, toting around Shakti Gawain’s Creative Visualization. It’s funny how such personal fads, for lack of a better word, do get dropped and replaced. I used to creatively visualize actively back before I realized that you can have this sort of mechanism going on in the back of your brain all the time. And, of course, I employ that “skill” to help others, clients, visualize better lives for themselves. I realize that, in terms of my indidvidual self, that I’ve gotten a bit floppy on that score. But as today is the first full day after my birthday I think I’ll make it a point to sharpen up on this score. There are things I want to achieve, now that I am free from psychic-friends’ ties that bind, and the power of these Sabian Symbols, in writing about them, weaving my own personal feelings and experiences into the fabric of these (I think) powerful oracles, is beginning to take hold. I hope that was a sentence—as it is I think the official tagline of this Blague shall be: Typos Happen. I’m off on several tangents. Come back.

Hi, I’m back. Dane Rudhyar, that old cut-up, says that the keynote for this image is: The need to visualize clearly one’s dremas or ideals in order to make them truly effectual. Word. And I for one need to be more concentrated on this score. He then goes on to quote a French proverb, which is cool, because guess who’s heading to France today via Eurostar. According to this proverb: What is well conceived can be easily formulated.” I think this is also true, but I’m not sure it’s the way I work. I mean I tend not to conceive before formulating. I tend to just jump in and start formulating because I find that the process informs the conception. In our circles, in our circles. Oh but hey, the Ruddy says this: The process of interior visualization can be quite essential EXCEPT in the case of a creative individual who has become a totally pure channel for the descent of spiritual Power and a clear lens through which the Archetype in the Mind of Man (or God) can be projected without distortion wherever needed. Yeah that’s more me. Ha. I wish.

I have had moments in creation where I have felt that direct connection to the Muses and have had it last for months or even a year or so on end. Recipe for madness as well as strokes of genius. And maybe the reason I haven’t created any, say, solo performance work to speak of as of yet, or written any full songs for that matter (i have reams of half-written ditties) is because I haven’t creatively visualized and fully conceived—gotta love that word in this context—that which I want to express. Now, Virgo is the Virgin after all i.e. she is designed to conceive. The sign rules digestion as well as gestation. So maybe I need to get into emotionally-intelligently hatching an idea from visualization to execution. Sounds so simple. Yeah right. Again, I’m more a flash of ideas and then a jumping into the deep end of creativity without quite knowing how to swim sort of creative, opening channels to inspiration; I suppose I’ve always considered ultimate conception of creative vision to be a bit, well, too thought-out. Then again, maybe that’s why I don’t have a very large body of work. Food for thought. Must have been a Virgo who invented that phrase.
