Full Moon Reflection in Capricorn

Keynote:   “Lost am I in Light Supernal, Yet on that Light I turn my back

The symbol standing for the Sign of Capricorn is the goat. In occult terms the task of the goat is to abandon the nourishing comforts of the grassy plain and climb the mountain to its peak. This, therefore, is also the task of the aspirant working in Capricorn. The grassy plain signifies the comfort of the aspirant’s present level of achievement. The mountain signifies the spiritual challenge ahead. The mountain top, so daunting as viewed from below, is the achievement demanded before the aspirant may take the designated initiation (whichever this may be) and proceed to the next spiritual task.

However, the keynote for this sign reads Lost am I in light supernal, yet on that light I turn my back. Having scaled the mountain, having left behind the desires of body, emotion and intellect, having seen a blazing light on a distant horizon, the initiate turns back down the mountain, returning to humanity to face a task much greater than those faced thus far.

In the Alice Bailey book Esoteric Astrology we are given the following:
It has been occultly said that a vision of these powers and their many weaving lines (seen as rivers and streams of light) is given to the initiate from the mountain top of Capricorn, once that summit has been reached. It is at the Transfiguration initiation that this vision appears before the eyes of the astounded disciple. The great experiences upon the various mountain tops as related in the Bible have all to do with Capricorn. Moses, the Lawgiver on Mount Sinai, is Saturn in Capricorn imposing the law of karma upon the people. ……. The Mount of Transfiguration in the New Testament is Venus in Capricorn when love and mind and ? will meet in the person of the Christ …… The astrological significance of the New Testament is as yet little understood. Christ was born in Capricorn, fulfilled the law under Saturn, initiated the era of intelligent brotherhood under Venus and is the perfect example of the Capricornian initiate who becomes the world Server in Aquarius, and the world Saviour in Pisces, thus completing the round of the zodiac and able to say triumphantly in Pisces “It is finished.”

  1. The powers referred to are the interlocking forces of all the twelve constellations, as they pour into and through all the kingdoms in nature, carrying with them also not only their own individual potencies but also those of the seven rays, focussed through the sacred and non-sacred planets—the discovered and undiscovered planetary Lives.
