Absalom Underwater. Aspects of
Sun Sextile: Wrong choice most often means not frivolity or mistake, but betrayal of your God. The Sextile of the Sun gives a person in the areas ruled by the Planet opportunities, the implementation of which will require volitional efforts and initiative from him; it is also likely that in the course of working out these possibilities, he will have to face rather tough, imperative circumstances, which, however, will not be hostile to him, rather, on the contrary, potentially friendly, but still require a certain approach and mutual adaptation. The Sextile of the Sun, as it were, throws a man (in the areas corresponding to the Planet) a male challenge, offering to check whether he has a will capable of overcoming obstacles and establishing cooperation; the obstacles are meant to be non-antagonistic, and the cooperation is supposed to be beneficial and effective. If a person does not feel ready to accept this challenge, he can reject it: once, twice, three … after a while, such a consistent unwillingness to accept any constructive proposals of fate begins to work against the person, he degrades and falls into tough karmic programs, into which his choice is minimal or absent altogether. On the other hand, the sextile of the Sun provides a very valuable opportunity to work out its principle, that is, its own will, in the course of constructive activity related to the Planet. Solving the internal problems that arise in connection with such activities, a person learns to correctly direct his will, gets the opportunity to determine which egregor it is directed by, and to coordinate it with external circumstances and various programs of the subconscious. For example, the sextile Sun – Moon is a very promising aspect, it, in particular, gives great opportunities for both physical and spiritual development, at a high level it is an aspect of spiritual teachers who are well versed in the ratio of higher and lower principles in a particular person and are able to put it on a constructive path of evolutionary development, inherent in him. Mercury Sextile: The work of thought is effective in the boundaries between what a person does not understand and what he cannot wrinkle in principle. Mercury Sextile gives the Planet the opportunity to constructively interact with the principle of thinking. The statement “the mind is the head for everything” is both a varnishing of reality and its falsification; however, in the sphere of action of the Planet, sextile will provide a person with various possibilities of rational understanding and tactful mental control. The Sextile of Mercury does not give an instant and easy superficial rational understanding of the principle of the Planet, which is characteristic of trine, but makes constructive efforts aimed at comprehending it, and, with a certain amount of work, a person reaches a level where his understanding does not profane the principle of the Planet, but gives him on the contrary, new directions of development. Here, when interpreting, it is important to pay attention to which planet is stronger in sextile. If Mercury is stronger, then a person will be tempted, only having begun to understand the problem, to consider his first (or second) thoughts sufficient and effective and to harshly suppress the principle of the Planet by them, eventually accepting it with great distortions, and the mental control of the Planet will turn out to be too rough … If the Planet is stronger in sextile, then a person will be tempted to subordinate his thinking to its principle, and then rational understanding will be biased, which interferes with the objectivity of assessments, and mental control is too weak. In any case, a person will feel the general need for mental development in the areas ruled by the Planet. Development gives great opportunities for rationalization in the spheres of influence of the Planet, subtlety and flexibility of rational thinking, the boundaries of competence of which a person will feel well. Good for teachers in areas related to the Planet, since this person will be able to give students ample opportunities to master the principle of the Planet, forcing their rational mind to work – a very effective teaching tool. On the contrary, a lack of elaboration, a persistent unwillingness to use rational thinking to work with the principle of the Planet, leads a person to a loss of faith in himself, his abilities and capabilities, mental depression and possible blows of fate in the relevant areas.
