As Above, So Below
The astrological chart is based on six axes, resulting in 12 points or poles to form a dodecagon. The dodecagon is formed by four intersecting equilateral triangles. Within the dodecagon is a reflection of divinity and a reflection of humanity. It is the symbol of our sameness. It is a symbol of our unity. Four represents stability and strong foundations. It is all that we need. It is born from the “three”. The “three” is the Goddess/magnetism; the God/electricity; and the Force/the all.
Twelve is the number of polarity. Polarity is a term that has come to be interpreted as “two things in direct contradiction to one another”. This is not accurate. Polarity is derived from the Latin, polus meaning “an end of an axis”. This misuse of language will cause great confusion in interpreting the astrological chart.
Individual consciousness lies at one end of the axis. The Force lies at the opposite end of the axis. They are both YOU. You are an individual unique expression of the Force. And you are a part of the collective that makes up the Force. There is no contradiction. Both have the exact same objective, to emulate divinity by taking part in the creative process, manifesting joy.
The six points that lie at the bottom half of the astrological chart represent the individual. The six points that lie at the top half of the astrological chart represent the others that make up the Force.
What is important to remember is that the individual does not exist without the other. We cannot exist and live an animated, material life without the others of the Force. Likewise, we cannot serve the others and the Force without first attending to our own individual needs. It is an alternating current of energy–not in contradiction, but instead in constant service. This is the key to understanding the aspect of the opposition in the astrological chart. We are in service to the one distinct resonance of the Force that is us “the individual. And we are in service to the entirety of the Force that is us “the all”.
Each axis has a magnetic pole and an electric pole. The magnetic pole is grounded to the Earth and draws on the magnetic charge of the Earth. The electrical pole is connected to the Force and draws on the charge of the all. When one pole is activated energy flows toward the opposite pole. When the opposite pole is activated, the energy switches direction and flows back. Therefore, the opposition, when activated properly is a kind of loop. It is an oscillating exchange of energy similar to an alternating current. To effectively understand the aspect of the opposition in the astrological chart, we must simply maintain a back and forth exchange between the “I” and the “All”.
Urania’s code holds the balance that is the Way of the Goddess within the dodecagon. The dodecagon reduces to three, and three is a magic number. Three holds all that there is and all that ever will be. It is representative of and a constant reminder of our origins. One is the Goddess–magnetism; two is the God–electricity; and three is the Force–the all.
The four equilateral triangles that make up the dodecagon, represent the four elements.
