The Pattern of the Elements

It is the background model on which I

arranged the astrological archetypes that

illuminated the Pattern of the Elements.

WATER EARTH

FIRE AIR

To perceive a tree in this model we need to turn the pattern

around 90 degrees. This is the way gravity organises the

elements on planet Earth. Air and Fire rise, Water and Earth fall.

Earth

Air Fire

Water

The roots draw up the water (Water) and minerals (Earth) in a process

called osmosis. The leaves are factories that convert carbon dioxide

(Air) into oxygen using sunlight (Fire). This process is called

photosynthesis (a photon is a light particle).

The Complementary Connections

TIME

LIFE

On the model pictured here (the model that explains the psyche)

there is a natural flow of energy from Source to Wealth - from the

womb at the base to the area of greatest manifestation at the apex.

We can think of this as ‘a river of life’. The river breaks down at the

top (Uranus/Saturn) and returns to the Source.

This famous Tree of Life

grows in The Golden City.

Quote: 22:2

In the midst of the street of it,

and on either side of the river,

was there the tree of life,

which bear twelve manner of

fruits, and yielded her fruit

every month: …

It is obvious that The Golden City described in the Book of

Revelation is a description of the Anima Mundi. It has four walls

with three gates in each wall and an angel at each gate: angels

are also described as stars! Hello astrological angels!

Photosyntheses produces the oxygen upon which all life depends.

To construct a ‘tree-

model’ out of the

arrangement of the

elements on the Anima

Mundi is easy-peasy.

And .. the tree grows

‘on both sides of the

river’ - not an ordinary

sort of tree?

I have applied new

rulers to Taurus and

Virgo (the logic for this

audacious act will be

explained in an-other

presentation).

Photosyntheses produces the oxygen upon which all life depends.

Astrologers will note that the archetypes merge.

Between Neptune and the Moon is the root ‘dream’ -

between Jupiter and the Sun is the leaf ‘generosity’.

‘Selective’ could be Taurus or Virgo; ‘Formal’, Virgo or

Capricorn; Gemini and Libra co-ordinate and co-operate.

The text continues:

‘.. and the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the

nations.’

I am hoping that this means that we will eventually

learn to harness the energy in sunlight. I am also

hoping that astrology will gain the recognition it

deserves. The intelligent application of astrology's

abundant information has the potential (I believe) to

lead us into a new, enlightened age.

Uranus is the light-bringer, isn’t it?

That oxygen is a by-product of photosynthesis

might also prove significant.
