Zodiac and Planet Meditation

This meditation is a powerfull healing technique, but will off course be a little longer to work through, than the distant healing technique, simply because of the many pictures.

Any technique requires repetition and regularity in order to work, we suggest you allocate some time daily or weekly, not less frequent than that, and preferable at regular intervals, where you contemplate the pictures one by one.
A good way of doing this is to take one zodiac sign and its ruling planet in the corresponding astronomical period. We do not suggest that you use the astrological times, since the alignment between the starsign you contemplate and the actual starsign we are in, has been wrong for many years. (This is explained in the article ‘Cosmos and Us’)’.

One can say that the zodiac represents the totality of what we have at our disposal; in computer language this is our “hardware”. Similarly the planets can be described as our “software”, the personal “programming” our character, that helps or impairs our ability to express our innate qualities.
The Tarot major Archana is somewhere in between, a closer look will reveal “hardware aspects”, face value it is more “software” aspects
When we are attuning ourselves with the truth, harmony, and creative power originally embedded in our being via these high archetypes, long-lasting transformation and changes in our relationship with ourselves and our life’s events may happen.


“If we could see through all our projections Down to the last traces, Our personality would be extended to Cosmic dimensions”
-Marie Louise von Franz
