1. Mercury in Libra—Ajna
and Spiritual Triad connection. Mercury rules the ajna center in the
advancing disciple, and the ajna center is that center through which
the Spiritual Triad works at an advanced stage of evolution probably
following the third degree. Thus, Mercury in Libra gives a special facility
in the use of the abstract mind, often found in the mathematical mind
(especially higher mathematics). This would be a mind well suited to
discovering the abstract equations inherent in Nature.
2. Mercury in Libra—A
mind suited to an understanding of Occult Law.
3. Mercury in Libra—The
major ray given for Mercury is R4, but I suggest that R3 and R5 are
also prominent. With the R3 transmitted through Libra, there would be
(if this ray assessment is correct) an emphasis upon R3.
4. Mercury in Libra—A
mind useful in unraveling karmic intricacies.
5. Mercury in Libra—The
‘Word’ which is Law. Great statements which enunciate Divine
Law, such as the “Golden Rule”.
Shedding the ‘light of cooperation’.
6. Mercury in Libra—The
mental process which reveals the narrow, razor-edged Path between the
Pairs of Opposites the “Path of the Just”; this (on a lower
turn of the spiral) is the Path of thoughts and actions which are neither
entirely of the soul nor entirely of the personality, but represent
a partnership between them.
7. Mercury in Libra—On
a higher turn of the spiral, the “Path of the Just, which shineth
ever more unto the Perfect Day”, is the Path leading to Shamballa,
which Libra, in a sense rules, since Shamballa is the “City of
Peace”. Thus Mercury in Libra can be associated with the antahkarana
when considering it as the Pathway to Shamballa. Clearly, one must know
Occult Law in order to treat that Path.
8. Mercury in Libra—Mercury
in Libra intuitively reveals the “Golden Mean” which must
determine relations between the “Pairs of Opposites”. (For
practical purposes, the “Pairs of Opposites” can be considered,
in this context, as the soul and personality.
9. Mercury in Libra—The
intuition preserves the balance between the male and female aspects
of divinity; the soul is ‘male’ or positive to the personality,
which is receptive or female. The soul also has its male and female
parts, as does the personal human psyche. Mercury in Libra inclines
one to be mindful to preserve the balance between the poles. In another
way, the intelligent ‘uniter of poles’, or, colloquially,
‘match-maker’ between the poles.
10. Mercury in Libra—The
healing mind, in this sense that it understands the causes of the disharmony
which creates ‘dis-ease’. Thus is knows the ways of reestablishing
‘right energy flow’.

‘Karmic-mind’, foreseeing consequences of actions at many
removes from the origin of action.
12. Mercury in Libra—Since
Libra rules “Supermind”, we see Mercury in Libra as the
representative of Triadal Mind, or pure manas (easily associated with
Saturn if the three synthesizing planets be linked to atma-buddhi-manas).
13. Mercury in Libra—One
can imagine a mind well suited at dealing with the Third Aspect of Divinity
(Libra, R3); Mercury, considered to ruler commerce and exchange would
function successfully in relation to the Law of Economy. Also, the mind
functioning in relation to Law, Sex and Money (the three aspects over
which Libra presides).
14. Mercury in Libra—The
intuition reveals that which is needed to create satisfaction and agreement
between the two parties, soul and personality. Expert in the art of
15. Mercury in Libra—Mercury
in Libra intuitively reveals the results of the consultation between
soul and personality. When facing difficulties or decisions, soul and
personality consult, mediation ensues, and thus the two ‘opposites’
can work cooperatively together. Thus, a mind which knows the ways of
“righteous compromise”. A ‘deal is cut’ between
soul and personality. This is all changed in Scorpio, where the soul
must prevail at all costs.
16. Mercury in Libra—The
‘messages from the soul’ pertain to the creation of right
relations between soul and personality, and right relations between
the personality and other personalities.
17. Mercury in Libra—The
Law of Magnetic Impulse is also called the “Law of Polar Union”,
its symbol being the Triangle. It is Mercury symbolically, and perhaps
actually/subtly which creates the links between the three triangles
in the head of the soul-infused disciple.
18. Mercury in Libra—Mercury
in Libra: facilitation in the equilibrization of the chakras; linking
the ‘gods’ in a balanced manner.
19. Mercury in Libra—The
soul/personality dialogue focuses upon what each partner brings to the
“marriage in the heavens”; grievances and infringements
against equality are presented until correct, mutual adjustment is reached.
The dialogue addresses the issue of whether each partner will have its
due whether the rights of each will be preserved.

mind as the judge of spiritual values; perhaps someone knows the role
of Thoth (Mercury) in the ‘weighing’ of the soul of the

of experience according to the principles of justice and equal rights
under the law.
22. Mercury in Libra—The
sane mind of the true disciple who lives a live of “sanctified
normality” characterized by a “balanced point of view”.
23. Mercury in Libra—The
relationship between the partners (or Pair of Opposites) must be ruled
by law; each partner has its rights under the law, and these rights
are not to be infringed. The mind of judgment reveals what pertains
to each and what are the prerogatives of each.
24. Mercury in Libra—A
facility for understanding Beauty as Truth.
25. Mercury in Libra—Taoistic
Mind, comfortable with ambiguity and paradox.
26. Mercury in Libra—The

and cooperation; no unevenness of effort is found; balance and right
proportion are found in the construction.
