Gnostic Question of the Week
Why is it important to transcend mechanical zodiacal influences?
Answer from the V.M. Samael Aun Weor.
People - machines do not want to change because they say: “That is my sign, that is my zodiacal influence!”, etc. I will never get tired of emphasizing that what is important is to change emotionally and mentally.
One needs to change mentally in order for the authentic zodiacal forces which emanate from the Being, from the Milky Way, that will give us a permanent center of gravity, to penetrate and become manifest in us.
We must not seek the Light in horoscopes, the Light surges forth when we have eliminated from ourselves the Particular Psychological Characteristic Trait and when we have created a new flask —the mind—, to pour into it the teachings of Psycho- Astrology which I have taught in my work “Zodiacal Course”.
The Being and the Divine Mother are the only ones that can emancipate us from newspaper and cheap magazine horoscopes, thus giving us integral education.
We have to shake off the dust of the centuries from ourselves and eliminate all our rancid customs and beliefs and leave astrological fanaticism. That “It is my zodiacal influence and what remedy does it have?”, is such a subjective manner of thinking which is a sophism of distraction of the ego
Samael Aun Weor. The Revolution of the Dialectic
Answer from the Magazine "The Wisdom of the Being".
It is a definite fact that the planets and zodiacal constellations influence us, they manage us psychically and emotionally.
In such a way that certain psychological traits characterize each zodiac sign and a part of our karma is implicit in this.
A psychological revolution is essential to transcend the negative part of our sign and transcend the sign itself to conquer interior enlightenment.
Modern astrology speaks of compatible and incompatible zodiacal signs, this is absurd, because in any case, it is the I's that influence the compatibility or incompatibility between people.
When someone removes his psychological defects, he transcends all kinds of zodiacal incompatibilities and forms part of universal love.
Today many people do not want to change, they affirm: “That is my sign! That is my zodiac influence! That's how I am!”, but the important thing is that we change emotionally and mentally.
Knowing the psychological aspects of our zodiac sign helps us to identify our particular characteristic psychological trait, whoever identifies and understands that set of defects that stand out in their personality, as master Samael affirms, is on the way to dissolving fifty percent of the I's that bottle up our consciousness.
