Children Playing Around Five Mounds of Sand is the image for 15°. Dane Rudhyar writes: This is a particularly cryptic symbol. It may be deciphered if one realizes that Man’s essential destiny is to develop as a five-fold being, a “Pentagram” or five-pointed star. Number 5 symbolizes mind in its most creative and penetrating aspect, while number 4 refers to the life processes operating at present within the earth’s biosphere. Our Western civilization has realized only the lower level of this vibration 5; i.e. mind contaminated by compulsive instincts and emotional involvement. Some individuals, however, are born with a special potential for development of the higher, creative mind, and in social circumstances favoring this development. In most cases, they are still “playing around” with their unusual capacity. They are in the kindergarten stage of this higher mind development.


This symbol is ruled by Sagittarius, the sign of higher mind, in a twelve-fold sequence. So that makes sense. And as far as the rest of what Dane has to say, I’m afraid that will have to suffice today. I have to keep things moving here!
