Hope Love Faith

EURYTHMY: AN EXPERIENCE OF CONTENTMENT, The Dance Thinker, Issue #15

HOPE AS AN ORGAN OF PERCEPTION

“It is precisely in physical life that we need hope, for everything is upheld by hope and without it nothing can be done. The forces of hope, therefore, are connected with our last sheath as human beings, with our physical body. What the forces of faith are for our astral body, and the love-forces for the etheric, the forces of hope are for the physical body. Thus a man who is unable to hope, a man always despondent about what he supposes the future may bring, will go through the world with this clearly visible in his physical appearance. Nothing makes for deep wrinkles, those deadening forces in the physical body, sooner than lack of hope.

Hope Faith Love Painting by Susan Cooke Pena
 Susan Cooke Pena

The inmost kernel of our being may be said to be sheathed in our faith-body or astral body, in our body of love or etheric body, and in our hope-body or physical body; and we comprehend the true significance of our physical body only when we bear in mind that, in reality, it is not sustained by external physical forces of attraction and repulsion — that is a materialistic idea — but has in it what, according to our concepts, we know as forces of hope. Our physical body is built up by hope, not by forces of attraction and repulsion. This very point can show that the new spiritual-scientific revelation gives us the truth.

Ayse Domeniconi

What then does Spiritual Science give us? By revealing the all-embracing laws of karma and reincarnation, it gives us something which permeates us with spiritual hope, just as does our awareness on the physical plane that the sun will rise to-morrow and that seeds will eventually grow into plants. It shows, if we understand karma, that our physical body, which will perish into dust when we have gone through the gate of death, can through the forces permeating us with hope be re-built for a new life. Spiritual Science fills men with the strongest forces of hope. Were this Spiritual Science, this new revelation for the present time, to be rejected, men naturally would return to earth in future all the same, for life on earth would not cease on account of people’s ignorance of its laws. Human beings would incarnate again; but there would be something very strange about these incarnations. Men would gradually become a race with bodies wrinkled and shriveled all over, earthly bodies which would finally be so crippled that people would be entirely incapacitated. To put it briefly, in future incarnations a condition of dying away, of withering up, would assail mankind if their consciousness, and from there the hidden depths of their being right down into the physical body, were not given fresh life through the power of hope.

Hope - Abstract Flower Art Poster by Ann Powell

This power of hope arises through the certainty of knowledge gained from the laws of karma and reincarnation. Already there is a tendency in human beings to produce withering bodies, which in future would become increasingly rickety even in the very bones. Marrow will be brought to the bones, forces of life to the nerves, by this new revelation, whose value will not reside merely in theories but in its life-giving forces — above all in those of hope.” ~ Rudolf Steiner, ‘Faith, Love, and Hope: The Third Revelation.’

POD (Poem Of the Day)

~I speak the story
As I walk in the legend…
May I meet myself
In every tree & rock
Quickened by tendrils of light…
Holy & perfect is the search
Which lives by fire in the embrace of spirit…
Watch as I burst into flames
Scattering my ashes to feed the Earth

“Thus we see that there is a certain relationship between karma and the animal kingdom, although we must not confuse matters by likening what the animal experiences as its fate with human karma. But if we consider the whole earth development, and what had to come about for the sake of humanity and its evolution, we will see that we can indeed speak of a relationship between the karma of humanity and the animal kingdom.”
~Rudolf Steiner, Manifestations of Karma, Chapter 2, “Karma and the Animal Kingdom”, Hamburg, 17 May, 1910 … focus of the July 1 meeting.

The lecture can be found online at the RS Archive (eLib) by clicking this link: https://wn.rsarchive.org/Lectures/…/Hamburg/19100517p01.html

Feast Day of Archangel Uriel

collage by ~hag

“The teachers in the Mysteries said: “Every year at Midsummer, a solemn offering must be made to the Upper Gods in gratitude for the thoughts they vouchsafe to humanity; for if this is not done, it is all too easy for the Luciferic powers to invade man’s thinking and he is then permeated by these powers.

He can avoid this if every Summer he is mindful of how the Upper Gods have given him these thoughts, and at the Midsummer season lets his thoughts flow back again, as it were, to the Gods.” In this way the men of olden times tried to safeguard themselves from Luciferic influences.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is summer-solstice-circle-pp.png
collage by ~hag

The leaders of the Mysteries called together their pupils and enacted that solemn rite at the culmination of which the thoughts that had been revealed by the Upper Gods were now offered up to them in upward-streaming feelings.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is smoke-music-pp.png
collage by ~hag

The external rite consisted in solemn words being spoken into rising smoke which was thus set into waves. This act was merely meant to signify that the offering made by man’s inmost soul to the Upper Gods was being inscribed into an outer medium — the rising smoke — through form-creating words.

collage by ~hag

The words of the prayer inscribed into the rising smoke the feelings which the soul desired to send upwards to the Gods as an offering for the thoughts they had revealed.” 

~Rudolf Steiner, The Spiritual Communion of Mankind 

collage by ~hag

“…Now, man must learn to know the etheric and astral elements outside himself. This he can do only through the reverent deepening of spiritual science

This is what Anthroposophy intends when it speaks of a renewal of the festivals

We must come once more to an inner understanding of what the cycle of the year can mean to humanity in this connection; it can then be something even loftier than it was for man long ago”…~Rudolf Steiner, The Cycle of the Year as Breathing-Process of the Earth

Until soon

Blessings and Peace ~Hazel Archer Ginsberg

Waning Moon approaching Venus low in the dawn, June 17-19, 2020

Rudolf Steiner’s Lectures on this day

ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY

Near the Solstice, the twilight lingers well past 9 o’clock.

collage by ~hag

18 June 2020 – “Speaking with the Stars”: In Friday’s dawn,look very low to the northeast to catch the thin crescent Moon paired with Venus. And for New England, NY, & parts of eastern Canada, Bella Luna will occult Venus after the Moon rises during dawn. This is the ‘old’ waning crescent moon with Venus the goddess of love hidden behind it, in what is referred to as an “occultation”- a sort of mini eclipse. Venus, which Spiritual Science calls ‘occult Mercury’, has just switched over to being the ‘Morning Star’ & now is having this moment of occultation with Bella Luna who will be hidden by the light of the rising Sun in the East, on her way to becoming a New Moon, eclipsing the Sun Saturday (The Summer Solstice) night, Sunday morning (Father’s Day) hmmm

“…hearts are sifted…”

Photo & Obituary by Rand Carter

Hugh Jordan Courtney passed the threshold quietly in his sleep on June 15, 2020, at the noble age of 87 in Woolwine, Virginia. Hugh was a man of great feelings and high standards. He entered the world on Friday, July 8, 1932, in Cook County, IL. Little did anyone know at the time how much land this one man’s work would heal.

Hugh lived many lives. In an early version of himself, he was Lieutenant in the Navy. An intermediary form of himself manifested as a librarian. But his true vocation blossomed as a champion of the Earth and its redemption. For decades he crafted special herbal remedies to stimulate the renewal of exhausted farmland for the renewal of our common home and the furtherance of our spiritual development. He inherited his mantle from Josephine Porter who herself had received her initiation from the harbinger of biodynamics to North America, Ehrenfried Pfeiffer – an immediate student of the visionary spiritual leader, Rudolf Steiner. The strand connecting Steiner to Courtney is short and direct.

Hugh was a seasoned astronomer and astrologer as well as a member of the Anthroposophical Society in America for over 40 years.

Hugh met Josephine Porter on Sunday, August 8, 1976, during the Biodynamic Association Conference at Threefold Farm, Spring Valley, NY. One decade later Hugh founded the Josephine Porter Institute for Applied Biodynamics, (JPI), extending the legacy of his mentor. Hugh Courtney conceived of the “sequential spray” technique in 1988 for increasing rainfall on a farm. He was the author of the best selling introduction to biodynamic agriculture What is Biodynamics? (SteinerBooks 10/4/05) which integrates biodynamic agriculture within the framework of Rudolf Steiner’s greater cosmology.

In 2009 Hugh founded Earth Legacy Agriculture with his grandson Jeremiah to encourage more large-scale agriculture applications of Biodynamic Preparations to heal ever more land. He continued to research effective pest remedies for further developing the indications given by Rudolf Steiner.

During his time, Hugh mentoring provided us many more preparation makers including Lloyd Nelson, Larry Mabe, Pat Fraizer, Matias Baker, Florence Rewinski, Laura Riccardi Lyvers, Jason Harris, Bob Lehman, and Stewart Lundy, just to name a few.

Hugh is survived by his wife Elisabeth and her children as well as his Sibling: Don, Bill, & Lynn, his children: Mark, Elaine, Gwen & Blair, his Grandchildren: Shannon, Jessica, Jeremiah, Joshua, Zachariah, Juliana, & Michael and his Great Grandchildren: Zane, Tyler, Brielle, Liam, Ryder, Stella, Odin, Till, & Oaklyn.

His favorite saying was “God’s in charge.” And his work embodied this. Not only is there a plan, but he was actively participating in the divine plan and helping farmers and gardeners join in their sacred work as well.

With the discipline of a soldier, the guise of a farmer, and the fastidiousness of a librarian, Hugh established his spiritual home with practical anthroposophy. He may be gone, but his work is not finished.

The family requests no flowers. Donations can be made in the honor of Hugh Courtney by sending a check to the Christian Appalachian Project, Seed & Library Program, PO Box 55911 Lexington, Kentucky 40555-5911

Cremation and service to be announced.

Much thanks to Divine Orchestration, Elizabeth Courtney, Jeremiah Proctor, Stewart Lundy, Amy Hamilton, Lauri Wilson, Larry Mabe, Peter Blake, and Hazel Archer Ginsberg for making this obituary possible

Part 5 in: A Summary of THE ST. JOHN IMAGINATION, from ~the Four Seasons and the Archangels, Lecture 4, by Rudolf Steiner

The vertices of an equilateral triangle are shrinking towards each other -  Mathematics Stack Exchange


“…The Heights become Mysteries, the Depths become Mysteries, and man himself becomes a Mystery within the Mysteries of the Cosmos. Right into his bony system he feels the crystal-forming power. But he feels also how this same power is in cosmic union with the living power of light in the heavens above. He feels how all that comes about through humankind as morality in these Mysteries of the Heights lives and weaves in these Mysteries of the Depths, and in the conjunction between the two. He feels himself no longer sundered from the world around him, but placed within it, united above with the shining Intelligence, in which he experiences, as in the womb of worlds, his own best thoughts.

Batem Lomerzoski

All this, too, would have to sound forth in musical tones — tones which carry these motifs on their wings and make them part of human experience. For these motifs are there. They do not have to be sought out; they can be read from the cosmic activity of Uriel. Here it is that Imagination passes over into Inspiration.

Sacred Geometrical Patterns That Will Make You One with the World

The human being, however, lives in a certain sense as an embodied Inspiration, as a being brought into existence by Inspiration, in the Mysteries of the heights and depths and in the Mysteries of their conjunction. He lives in the Mysteries to which the Spirit-Father points upward; the Mysteries to which the Spirit-Mother points downwards, the Mysteries which are united by the fact that the Christ, though the working together of the Spirit-Father and the Spirit-Mother, stands directly before the human soul as the sustaining Cosmic Spirit.

That which is woven out of all these cosmic secrets I may put before you somewhat in the following way. It is as though the human being, placed in the midst of all that goes on in high summer, were to feel something like this. The first words endeavour to represent how the gaze of Uriel concentrates itself into Inspiration, united with the Spirit-tones of the whole choir:

The Real Truth about the Chakras

Lebe irdisch Erhaltendes

Fühle dein Menschengebeine
Mit himmlischen Scheine
Im waltenden Weltenvereine } The Midst
The inner being of Man.

The Judgment Day
Kevin Demyuski

Here in these nine lines are the Mysteries of the Heights, the Mysteries of the Depths, and the Mysteries of the Midst, which are also those of the inner being of man. And then we have the whole gathered up as a cosmic statement of these Mysteries of the Heights, the Depths and the Midst, sounding out as though with organ and trumpet tones:

Es werden Stoffe verdichtet
Es werden Fehler gerichtet
Es werden Herzen gesichtet.

Here you have that which can permeate the human being at midsummer, supporting him, exalting him, confirming him — the St. John Imagination filled with Inspiration, the St. John Inspiration filled with Imagination — in these words:

Schaue unser Weben

Behold our weaving, the kindling radiance, the warming life.
Live in the earth’s sustaining, and in the form-giving breathing,

Feel the limbs of man, from the heavens illuminated,

Substances are densified, errors are judged and rectified,
hearts are sifted”

Mysteries of the Height
The Behold of our weaving,

The warming life.

Mysteries of the depth
Live in the earth’s sustaining,
And in the form-giving breathing,
With the power of true being.

The mysteries of the Midst, (or of the inner being of man)
Feel the limbs of the human being,
From the heavens illuminated,
In the strength of worlds united.

Like a cosmic statement of these Mysteries of the Heights, the Depths and the Midst, sounding Out as though with organ and trumpet tones:
Substances are densified,
Errors are judged and rectified,
Hearts are sifted. (sifted or viewed)

Death-day of Alexander the Great

Surprising Facts About Alexander the Great - HistoryExtra

11 June 2020 – Today is the Death-day of Alexander the Great. On this day in 1924, Rudolf Steiner wrote a letter to Ita Wegman, from Koberwitz, during the Whitsun Agricultural Course, speaking about her incarnation as his former pupil, when he was Aristotle, & she, Alexander The Great.

Aristotle's Influence On Education Of Alexander The Great ...

Aristotle & Alexander, just as before, when they worked as Eabani & Gilgamesh; & as Cratylus & Artemisia, after death, they continued to be active in the spiritual world for a long period of time.

In 869 AD the entelechies of Aristotle & Alexander met, in the spiritual world, with Haroun al-Raschid & his counselor.

This coincided with the Council of 869 in Constantinople during which the concept, of spirit was eliminated from the 3-fold human being, & was replaced with the polarized concept of body & soul.

Haroun al-Raschid & the opposing forces that he represented did not want Christianized Aristotelianism, only the teaching of natural science that has gradually assumed the form of today’s scientific materialism, devoid of any true concept, any reverence for divinity or creation; devoid of spiritual science.

This meeting was a spiritual confrontation that in earthly life was later reflected in the Quest for the Holy Grail & the striving for a union of early European Christianity with the Arabic cultures that had preserved Aristotle’s works.

For the natural science that Aristotle was able to pass on to Alexander needed for its comprehension souls that were still touched with the spirit of the Ephesian age, the time that preceded the burning of Ephesus. Such souls could only be found over in Asia or in Egypt, and it was into these parts that this knowledge of nature and insight into the Being of Nature were brought, by means of the expeditions of Alexander. Only later in a diluted form did they come over into Europe by many and diverse ways – especially by way of Asia Minor, Africa and Spain – but always in a very diluted or, as we might say, sifted form. The writings of Aristotle that came over into Europe directly were his writings on logic and philosophy. These lived on, and found fresh life again in medieval scholasticism.”

“…For we can see how the expeditions of Alexander and the teachings of Aristotle had this end in view: to keep unbroken the threads that unite humanity with the ancient spirituality, to weave them as it were into the material civilization that was to come, so they might endure until such time as new spiritual revelations should be given… Both streams [Aristotle and Alexander] have lasted up to the very moment when it is possible to begin a renewed life of spirit.” ~Rudolf Steiner, World History and the Mysteries in the Light of Anthroposophy, 1910.

Holy Grail Tapestry (portion) | Knight art, Art, Edward burne jones

They did not fully incarnate again until the 8th & 9th centuries. This time under the ruler-ship of the Archangel Raphael, connected with Mercury, to bring to light the emergence of the Quest for the Holy Grail – one of the 1st new manifestations of Christ now working as the Spirit of the Earth.

Of that incarnation Rudolf Steiner said, in a private conversation: “I was obliged to incarnate in a stream completely foreign to me in order to acquire the Christian fervor which I needed for the Thomas Incarnation.

Parcival findet Sigune mit dem toten Schionatulander auf einer ...

Brief indications by Rudolf Steiner point to the figures of Schionatulander (Ita Wegman) & Sigune (Rudolf Steiner), who play an important, yet mostly overlooked role, in the Parsifal legend.

Sigune lives by the side of Herzeleide, she loves Schionatulander but she longs to read the stellar script, called “Brackenseil” – the leash belonging to the hound whose name is “Gardevias” — Guardian of the Pathways. (Does this indicate that Sigune is still reluctant to make the descent into incarnation from the world of stars?)

 She yearns to read further in the 12-fold stellar script – of Brackenseil. In the attempt to bring it to her, Schionatulander is killed by Orilus who is actually looking for Parsifal. Schionatulander dies instead of Parsifal; & he becomes a guardian spirit of Parsifal guiding his further steps.

Dominus vobiscum, Et cum spiritu tuo.: Saint Thomas Aquinas, ora ...

Sigune then becomes the bearer of this new striving to transform the cosmic Intelligence thru the Christ Impulse, & incarnates again in the family of the Aquinos near Naples. He enters the Order of the Dominicans. From the quiet “cloister cell” he exercises a world-wide influence as the most illustrious scholar of the ecclesiastical system of thought, known as Scholasticism. He is Thomas Aquinas. His teacher – Albertus Magnus.

Friedrich Walther | Sermon of Saint Albertus Magnus | German | The Met

To grasp spiritual reality in pure thinking, to lead pure thinking with mathematical precision from idea to idea, from judgment to judgment — this was the faculty developed by Scholasticism & bequeathed to the spiritual history of humankind, above all through its great teachers: Albertus Magnus (Marie Steiner) & Thomas Aquinas (Rudolf Steiner).

The Arabian culture adhered firmly to the idea of cosmic, universal Intelligence. Thomas Aquinas taught of the personal, human Intelligence, of personal, human thinking & personal immortality. The Arabians persisted in their contention that every human being can be fructified by the universal Intelligence, but that there is no personal thinking, no personal immortality. After death a human being passes into the ocean of Cosmic Intelligence, so they said, where there is no personal immortality. For Thomas, whose thinking was combined with fervent piety, the world of Ideas was connected with spiritual reality which comes to expression in the world of the senses around us, behind which are Beings he calls “Intelligences”.

Reginald of Piperno - Wikidata

Along the way, our thinking evolved from the cosmic realms of “Intelligences” to realms of human intelligence such as exists today. We progressed from the Grail Castle to King Arthur’s Castle. This was the message carried by Reginald of Piperno, the young Dominican (Ita Wegman), to Aquinas, the older Dominican (Rudolf Steiner).

Arthurian Legend / Myth - TV Tropes

In the same series of lectures, reference is also made to the fact that in the “Arthurian stream” it was not yet realized that the Cosmic Intelligence had fallen away from Michael & had now come to human beings.

Timeless Myths

The Teachers of Chartres behind the stream of the Grail Castle, were representative of the Intelligence that had now become Christian & human – a “polar contrast” to the Castle of King Arthur.

The message brought from Alanus ab Insulis by Reginald of Piperno, the young Dominican, was that the Teachers of Chartres, now in the spiritual world, had realized the significance of personal immortality, realized that the Intelligence had become human, were aware of the Christian thinking in the Grail stream, & its connection with the world of stars, but that this knowledge would have to sleep for a time in the spiritual world, so that the intellect could be born in freedom.  

Sea Cooke

And now in our time the 2 streams must merge, to create a unity within the world.

From the Karmic Relationships lectures: “Aristotle and Alexander had centuries earlier witnessed, from the spiritual world, the departure of Christ from the sphere of the Sun towards Golgotha. This called forth in their souls “the challenge to set a new beginning – not to continue what had been on the earth before this mystery, but to begin completely anew.

Henceforth, Aristotle and Alexander must work – who already in antiquity were equal to the concepts and ideas of the fifth post-Atlantean age.” – Karmic Relationships, 1924.

Poem written by Rudolf Steiner to Ita Wegman:

There, where the light
In face of green demons
Is tremulous,
And the primordial Powers
Born of the light
To wrestling men
Proclaim the riddle,
Which from the demons
Only by men can be enticed forth
And brought to the Gods
There soul found soul
In order to offer someday to waiting Gods
The secrets of demons
In a darkened place
That light may be born,
Where for want of this deed
Eternal darkness held sway.
Such a place there is
It must vanish
Make it someday vanish,
So speaks the admonishing
Gaze of Michael.

The Small Dome – The Unknown Being”: A Report

The Age of Love & Freedom is characterized by the fact that human beings must learn to see thru the attacks made by the ‘demons’. We cannot run. We cannot hide. We are called to summon their secrets from these demons – to learn what is behind their working – to gain insight, responsibility & wisdom. And to pass on these mysteries of ‘evil’ to the Hierarchies- our ever present helpers, to receive the knowledge we must gain from this encounter.

We are progressing from head to heart in the advent of the Consciousness Soul age. We must learn the secret that the Fox told the Little Prince, “It is only with the heart that one can see rightly. What is essential is invisible to the eyes.”

Let us step outside, into the world, to meet our self, to meet each other, to stand in the glory of the Sun. And at night, under the myriad canopy of stars we will be invited to open our heart & share in the cosmic conversation of our collective evolution.

Today 3 June 2020 Venus (which Steiner calls occult or Ptolemaic Mercury – see references below) meets Mars, hidden behind the glare the Sun – Healing Love, squaring up with the god of war, in the fiery warmth of the solar logos…What does this dance portend? And how can we join the conversation?

Flat Earth - Ptolemy's Model of the Universe - YouTube

The famous unveiling of the open secret of the Copernican reversal of Mercury & Venus occurred in the 3rd lecture of ‘The Apocalypse of St. John’, by Rudolf Steiner, on 20 June 1908:“Here I come to a point where a little secret, so to say, must be unveiled, one which may only be divulged at this point. In truth if we wish to speak esoterically, as the writer of the apocalypse has done, we must speak of Mercury as the morning star. By the morning star John meant Mercury: I have given the direction towards thine `I’, to the morning star, to Mercury. – You may still find in certain books of the Middle ages, which describe the true state of affairs, that the stars of our planetary system are enumerated thus: Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, and then Earth is followed not as it is now by Venus, Mercury, but by the reverse, Mercury, Venus.” This reversal mentioned again on 5 September, 1908, in Egyptian Myths and Mysteries, Experiences of Initiation, Mysteries of the Planets, LECTURE 4 – The Experiences of Initiation. The Mysteries of the Planets. The Descent of the Primeval Word:  “Here I would like to add one thing, because misunderstandings have crept into the naming of the planets. In all occult nomenclature, what astronomers call Venus is called Mercury, and vice versa. Astronomers know nothing of the mysteries behind this, because in the past it was not desired that the esoteric names should be revealed. This happened in order to conceal certain things.”

Crispin van de Passe

The first scientifically important use of this reversal occurs in April 1909 in the cycle called ‘The Spiritual Hierarchies and Their Reflection in the Physical World’: “You must picture the earth as the starting point and around it a sphere of influence reaching up to the moon. This is followed by a realm reaching up to Mercury, then one to Venus, and then one up to the sun. Now you may be astonished at the sequence of the planets as I have given it here. You might think that if this is the earth and this is the sun, that I should draw Mercury in the immediate vicinity of the sun, and then Venus. But that is not correct. The names of these two planets have been interchanged by a later astronomy. What is called Mercury today was known in ancient teachings as Venus, and the planet referred to as Venus nowadays was always known as Mercury. We cannot rightly understand what is said about Venus and Mercury in ancient writings if we assume them to refer to the present planets of these names. At the time when the world system was turned topsy-turvy, when the earth was robbed of its central position, not only the perspective was completely altered, but the opportunity was taken of interchanging the names of Mercury and Venus.”

The Ptolemaic Model" Poster by Magbees | Redbubble

In the 1910 cycle available as ‘Macrocosm and Microcosm’, referring to the application of the many facts he is presenting, Steiner says, “The moon revolves around the Earth and the planets usually called Mercury and Venus are nearer to the Sun and revolve around it. I emphasize here that in the course of time a change has taken place in the names of these two planets. The planet that is called Mercury to-day was formerly Venus, and the planet called Venus today was formerly called Mercury. Therefore you should think of these designations reversed, so that they do not correspond with current astronomical designations. The planet lying nearer the Sun must be known as Venus and the planet lying farther away from the Sun must be known as Mercury.

In the 12 June 1910, lecture Steiner uses the term: `Ptolemaic’ Venus & Mercury’ as opposed to the Copernican.

In ‘The Spiritual Beings in the Heavenly Bodies and the Kingdoms of Nature’, April 1912: “Thus these normally developed Spirits of Motion so work down from the planets that they succeed one another in the process of human evolution, and reveal themselves in the great civilization impulses in the evolution of the earth which reach out beyond the sphere of the Spirits of the Age. Thus, for example, from that Spirit of Motion who worked down from the planet which present-day astronomy calls Venus, and which ancient astronomy called Mercury (for these two names have been exchanged), from that Spirit of Motion came originally the impulse of the civilisation which was expressed in Buddhism.”

Bruno - Rosicrucian Tradition Website

Steiner then relates that: “If we observe the planet Saturn in our system we find that the life stream which permeates the earth directly from him is connected with the substance we call lead: so we have a basic substance which is inwardly animated by Saturn. From Jupiter we get tin as the main substance; from Mars, iron; and in the occult sense, from Venus, copper. With regard to Mercury we must take into consideration that he was later confused with Venus. The life activity (in the sense of true occult nomenclature) produced creatively by Mercury, on account of its greater proximity when it penetrated the earth-organism, bears a still greater resemblance to the planet itself, for Mercury stands nearer the earth than the other planets. Therefor the substance has been given the same name as the cosmic body itself, namely, mercury or quick-silver.”

On 11 June, 1912, in ‘Man in the Light of Occultism, Theosophy and Philosophy’, Steiner calls the “… astronomical Venus, the traditional, Ptolemaic Mercury… employing therefore in this case not the old terminology which was altered by Kepler . . . ”

On 3 Nov. 18 Nov. & 15 & 22 Dec. 1912, the use of the Ptolemaic or occult Venus is again specified to be the astronomical Mercury.

In the lecture cycle ‘Ancient Myths‘ on 8 Jan. 1918, Steiner uses the Ptolemaic sequence to specify planet-Zodiac sign relationships.

From ‘Materialism and the Task of Anthroposophy’:  “Just as this ancient astronomy was subsequently obscured after the fourth century and physical astronomy took the place of the old etheric astronomy in the fifteenth century”.

In ‘Health and Illness, Vol. II’:  “..and it was only twenty-five to thirty-five hundred years ago that people looked upon the planets in a completely different scientific way.

1924 – Deathday of Franz Kafka a German novelist & short story writer, widely regarded as one of the major figures of 20th-century literature. His work, which fuses elements of realism & the fantastic, typically features isolated protagonists faced by bizarre or surrealistic predicaments & incomprehensible social-bureaucratic powers, & has been interpreted as exploring themes of alienation, existential anxiety, guilt, & absurdity. His best known works include “Die Verwandlung” (“The Metamorphosis”), Der Process (The Trial), & Das Schloss (The Castle). The term Kafkaesque has entered the English language to describe situations like those in his writing.

Kafka was born into a middle-class, German-speaking Jewish family in Prague, the capital of the Kingdom of Bohemia, then part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, today part of the Czech Republic. He trained as a lawyer, & after completing his legal education he was employed with an insurance company, forcing him to relegate writing to his spare time. Over the course of his life, Kafka wrote hundreds of letters to family & close friends, including his father, with whom he had a strained & formal relationship. He became engaged to several women but never married. He died in 1924 at the age of 40 from tuberculosis.

MANIFESTATIONS OF KARMA: June 3rd, 2020 Zoom Meeting with the Central Regional Council 7:15 pm – 8:30 pm CDT
He who observes human life carefully — not simply in a superficial way — may find remarkable connections in it. Unfortunately, the phenomena of human life are at present observed for only short periods of time, hardly even for a few years; people are not accustomed to connect what has happened after a long period of time, with what may have happened previously as the cause. There are very few at the present day who study the beginning and the end of a man’s life in their relationship to each other; nevertheless this relationship is extraordinarily instructive.” ~Rudolf Steiner, Manifestations of Karma

Friday 19 June 2020 – Front Range Anthroposophical Café presents:

The New Mysteries of St. Johns-Tide with Hazel Archer-Ginsberg 

To pass the test of Summer we will explore many questions:

  • How do we stand wakefully within the sublime mysteries of the Summer-Tide, to consciously embody ‘the spiritual wisdom of the gods’?
  • Who is the mysterious Archangel of Summer?
  • Who is John the Baptist? What do his sayings “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.” And “He must increase, but I must decrease.” really mean?
  • What is the secret to healing the ‘soul-fever’ so prevalent in society today?
  • What is the mystery of the Dragon-fly, & other elemental beings?
  • How can we understand the ‘Cycle of the Year as Breathing Process of the Earth’?

Together we will work to strengthen our true “I”, enlivening our will forces.

We look forward to seeing you on Friday 19 June 2020 shortly before 7 PM (Mountain time.) Here is the link to our Anthroposophical Café and all you need to do to join us is click on it: https://zoom.us/j/294724669.
