Follow the steps below to prepare for a reading.
When reading a card house
for the sun chart,
When reading for the rising
chart and moon
- First notice the Oracle that is indicated for the birth
card. If the house
is colored yellow, the movement is outward from the moment
of birth. If the color is blue, it shows that the Cherub
is on the way back to the gate (point of birth) through the Oracles.
Look up the Oracle description to get an idea of the archetypal
nature of experience that is in operation for the individual.
- · Next, notice the column in which the birth
card resides. The column represents the chakra that
is indicated, reading from right to left, and describes the dimension
in which the energy is operating:
- If in the 1st chakra, it represents molecular structure and
composition, being the realm of Matter (1st chakra), in relation
to it's counterpart in Spirit (7th chakra). Our body is
drawn together based on formulas set in place by the birth
contract that reflects our past. Our ability to cognize
the opportunity offered to us through the birth experience
(and bound by the birth
contract) rests in our desire and will to meet the demands
of the birth
contract, thereby fulfilling the payment of dues to enter
- If in the 2nd chakra, it represents the plant kingdom, where
organic structures express motion. Emotions evolve out
of this process as an expression of duality, showing up as yin/yang,
male/female, etc. Sex is a major phenomenon here, along
with all of the powers and distractions that are available through
sexuality. Desire draws through the 3rd eye (6th chakra)
the impression of our sexual nature. Based on the intention
behind our motivations, a feeling wells up and evolves as emotion.
- If in the 3rd chakra, it represents the animal kingdom.
This is the location where our lower
mind balances with our higher
mind (3rd kingdom) creating a tone that issues out with
our voice (5th chakra), as it connects through the Heart.
- If in the 4th (Heart chakra), it represents the human kingdom.
This is the meeting ground of the Shiva/Shakti presence.
It denotes the pool
of love (within which lives our eternal Spirit) as it reflects
through the pool
of karma through which we contact each other.
- If in the 5th, 6th or 7th chakra, these represent the spiritual
kingdom. The energy in these upper chakras is always a
factor of the energy that is resonating in the counterpart chakra,
as noted above. Please note, however, that you can affect
the lower chakras through these upper chakras by aligning the
desire and the lower
intention with the divine counterpart.
- If in the 5th Chakra, it represents our opportunity for
wisdom. But that wisdom is only available to the individual
if they have acceptance in the 3rd chakra. If the 3rd
mind) remains blocked and judgmental, no wisdom will be
available to the 5th chakra. What happens instead, is
that the mental picture forced on the Heart by the lower
mind gets projected out the Solar Plexus as an astral
projection, as if it was divinely provided. The 5th
chakra antes up by issuing out 'the Word' in support of that
astral projection, in an effort to balance the event.
- If in the 6th Chakra, it represents the 'truth of love'.
But that truth is only available to the 6th chakra if the
desire has been tamed by the 2nd chakra. Sexuality,
and the desire to know God arrive at the same doorstep.
Through tantric exercises, the male and female counterpart
can learn to experience the divine desire, that which is,
in and of itself, sexual. When the pressures of society
force on us situations that divert us from our natural instincts,
those are replaced by creative expressions arriving through
our 6th chakra. Since society as a whole projects the
'acceptable' way to express our sexuality, we can feel justified
in following that lead. If our lower
desire is not purified, however, the 6th chakra can only
respond in truth as a response to that desire. When
desire aligns with the divine desire, the creative expression
received through the 3rd eye will be accompanied by a truth
which cannot be denied.
- If in the 7th Chakra, it represents our purpose in life,
intention to incarnate. Access to our purpose can
only be achieved through the central channel (Sushumna), so
ultimately it requires that we raise the kundalini from the
1st chakra (Root) to the 7th chakra (Crown). The kundalini
can only be lifted fully by having each intermediate chakra
in balance (represented by the positive/negative forces therein).
Our purpose is directly relative to the original
intention behind our birth
request. Therefore the proper manner in which to
balance all forces in the body is to align the lower
intention with that of our original
intention to incarnate. Since our individual
intention resides in the 1st Chakra, we obtain access
to our purpose by aligning the 1st and the 7th Chakras.
- Next, notice the planetary player that is active. If the
Oracle indicated is on its outward movement, take the planetary
player on the right with the sign along the bottom, and for the
Oracle on its inward movement take the planetary player on the
left with the sign along the top. Ultimately both planetary
players (along with their associated sign) are important to integrate
when reading the sun
chart. The one indicated by the movement of the Oracles
is archetypal, but the opposite planetary ruler and sign should
be included to act as a reflective force present in the subconscious.
- When noting what sign is present, see that one will be active
by day and the other by night. These are archetypal indications,
but overall they will both work together in some way as to provide
an arena for the planets to play within.
- First notice what Oracle is indicated for the birth
card in question. The overall idea described above for
the sun chart
is reflected here, in its own way.
- Then find the chakra expression, which describes the dimension
within which goes the play.
- Then note the planetary player--on the right for Rising, left
for Moon. Here, there will likely be more of a clear definition
of that planetary energy. Though the planetary pair that
is opposite it will have influence, it will mainly be such as
to offer the ground for the planet that is expressing.
- Then note the sign and its rulership of day or night.
For the Rising, it represents day--which is going towards night.
For the Moon it represents night--which unfolds into the dawn
of day. In a sense this describes the direction of the event
happening in the chakra.
