Vulcan in Gemini

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 Gemini

The will of Pollux, the “Elder Brother”; subduing the “Younger Brother” Thought as the conveyer of lighted Will. The “Word of Power”. The sheer force of thought and word. “Mind over matter”. Movement considered as inertia (the tendency of matter in motion to remain in motion); perpetual motion. The forging of the “lines of communication”-both tangible and subtle. “Forging ahead” to create paths, roads, highways, links; i.e., in many ways, civil engineering-the builder of roads. The capacity to solder.

Similarly, the fortification of the nadis of the etheric body. (Both Gemini and Aquarius are particularly associated with the etheric body). Will as the animator of the etheric body. The forging of the “Body of Fire” (TCF, p. 166) The Will of God conveyed through doctrine; conversely, the “tyranny of the mind”. ‘Crushed’ by the ‘letter’. Will and Love united, considering Vulcan as the purveyor of the Spiritual Will and Gemini as the “Head of the Cosmic Christ”. The willful fusing of the two “Brothers” into one; duality overcome through will. The ‘will’ of matter, vs. The will of the soul.

Great dexterity in the arts of fashioning; versatile creativity. “Golden hands”. The Solar Angel as dexterous manipulator. The power of will to oppose its opposite, desire, at the second initiation. Capacity to develop the Technique of Duality which succeeds the Techniques of Fusion (See Esoteric Psychology II, in the late 300’s)
