Vulcan in Aquarius

I decided to take a ‘non-systematic’ approach to speculating on some possible meanings of Vulcan in the remaining eleven signs of the zodiac. I hope before long to give these positions the kind of attention I focused upon Vulcan in Aries, but I find that the time to do so lacks at the moment.

So I will simply share in a rather sketchy manner some possible esoteric interpretations. The list of questions below is still of value, but I will not refer to this list point by point. The points shared are more a smattering related thoughts rather than a sequential development of the subject. They can be used as seed thoughts for a more systematic development of the subject. Surely, it will also be obvious that there is nothing sacrosanct or even necessarily true about these speculations; they are meant to be indicative only.

  • What is the nature of the “divine design” being inwardly forged in the life?
  • To what extent (and, if so, how) is the “Jewel in the Lotus” active in the life?
  • Is there the capacity to hold an adamantine point of tension?
  • To what extent are the seven head centers [which I infer to be ruled by Vulcan] a prominent factor in the disciple’s energy system?
  • To what extent do they dominate the normal, ‘lesser’ centers?
  • What is the manner in which the soul (Solar Angel) grips the personality, and bends the personality to its will and enforces that will?
  • From a soul perspective, in what manner and with what quality does the soul’s will impact the personality?
  • In what ways does the personality experience the pressure of the spiritual will?
  • Has the life been one in which circumstances and things have been periodically shattered?
  • To what extent and in what fields is the life of the individual impactful?
  • Is the dynamic of the “hammer” noticeable in any of the energy fields or in relation to the environment?
  • When the individual uses the energy of destruction in the life, how does the individual exercise this energy and upon what or whom?
  • How is will (whether personal will or spiritual will) generally evidenced in the life?
  • What qualities of will are demonstrated?
  • To what extent is the individual capable of steadfastness and endurance?
  • What, if anything, does the individual seek to fashion and how does he or she go about this fashioning?
  • To what extent and in what manner is the light value of matter manifested in the individual’s energy system, especially through what we normally call the “matter aspect”?
  • To what extent and how is the individual engaged in the process of the “uplift of matter”?
  • How does the individual go about dominating or controlling the astral body, the body of desire?
  • What is the nature of the interplay between sacral center and throat center, and is the will brought into this interplay in any potent or noticeable manner?
  • In what manner and to what extent does the physical form prove obdurate, resistant and even obtuse to the will of the soul?
  • To what extent is the individual given to self-will and stubbornness?
  • How are ‘crystallizations developed within the personality. What role does ‘hardness’ play in the life?
  • What are the nature and quality of the individual’s initiative?
  • To what extent and how, does the individual “get things going”?
  • To what extent is the individual concerned with the strength of the physical body?
  • To what extent and how is the individual related to the mineral kingdom?
  • In what ways, if any, does the individual will to construct?
  • To what extent is such constructive activity utilitarian or artistic?
  • To what extent is the individual deeply concerned with matters concerning the structure of form?
  • How does the factor of isolation manifest in the life?
  • For what reason is isolation pursued, if it is pursued?
  • To what extent is the “Will-to-Love” active in the life, and in what manner is it active. (This question is in relation to Vulcan’s connection to the “Heart of the Sun”.)
  • How will Vulcan (when it is in a particular sign) operate with respect to the various initiations in which it is said to play a part?

Vulcan In Aquarius

Divine Will functioning through the Universal Mind (which Aquarius rules). Forging the group, and the group structure. The Will of the Hierarchy (ruled by Aquarius as the NGWS is ruled by Taurus) The Will of the Ashram. The will of the group. The “Will-to-Serve” Impelling the ‘Will-to-Renovate”. Building the new society.

The power of an “idea whose time has come”. Advanced ideas to exploit the energy in matter. Power over matter through advanced science. Forging the “new Heaven and the new Earth”, with the help of Uranus. The complete regeneration of the physical form. (The Moon veils three planets hierarchically, and transforms them according to the Principles of Life emanating from the cosmic etheric planes, our four systemic ethers.

Vulcan’s province is the physical body, and also the etheric body. There seems to be a connection with prana, solar vitality, given this position. The empowering of the etheric body. (Aquarius with Gemini has special rulership over the etheric body.) The astral body is cleansed at of low desire at the second degree by the power of spiritual will. Group Will replaces individual self-will at the third degree. The initiate experiences the solar vitality of the buddhic plane at the fourth degree.
