The 7 Planets that give us moods of the soul that underlie our worldviews

The 7 Planets that pass through the 12 zodiac signs and which give us moods of the soul that underlie our worldviews:

Saturn - Gnosis

Jupiter - Logism

Mars - Voluntarism

Sun - Empiricism

Venus - Mysticism

Mercury - Transcendentalism

Moon - Occultism

There are as many human archetypes as there are combinations of the 12 zodiac signs taken 7 at a time.

Materialism – mystic – My father

Mystic of idealism – Meister Eckhart

Monadist – Voluntarist – Hamerling or voluntarist – monadology

Psychist – voluntarist – Schopenhauer

mysticism in the sign of idealism – Nietzsche – in the first part of his life

empiricism in the sign of rationalism – Nietzsche – in the second part of his life

logist in the zodiac sign of sensuality – Wundt

empiricism in the sign of materialism – Wundt

And what does he do, for this reason? While he could achieve good, fruitful things in his constellation, Wundt elevates to the rank of totalitarian philosophy what he can achieve due to this constellation, when otherwise he might achieve even greater things, truly useful ones, if he would stop philosophizing and conduct experiments on soul phenomena - which he knows how to do - and if he would study the nature of mathematical judgments, which he also knows how to do, instead of mixing all these together to produce some unknown philosophies; because then he would be on the right track.

In short, by the constellation given by the moods of the soul regarding worldviews, representing the planetary element, and the nuances of worldviews, representing the spiritual zodiac element, what a person will carry with them through the world will emerge, as their worldview in a particular incarnation.

To avoid misunderstanding I emphasize especially that while these constellations are more important for human life than those in the external horoscope, they do not coincide with "nativity", with the external horoscope. The reality is that this increased influence on the human soul, the fact that mysticism is under the sign of idealism, awaits that favorable moment when it can take over the soul, to maximize the result of mysticism under the sign of idealism. We see, therefore, that the usual astrological nativity is not relevant here. But we can say that a certain soul has a predisposition that makes Venus, spiritually speaking, be in the Aries sign, and mysticism in the sign of idealism. The forces that arise in this way don't remain throughout life. They change, that is, a person comes under the influence of other signs, other spiritual dispositions. Let's assume a person changes so that during their life they come under the influence of empiricism, so that mysticism has, so to speak, traveled to empiricism and that empiricism is under the sign of rationalism.

But here we see something – and please note this – we see that two such constellations, which exist in the soul over time, hinder each other, negatively influence each other, if their relationship is such that they form an angle of 60 degrees. In physical astrology, this is a favorable constellation; in spiritual astrology, this so-called sextile is unfavorable and is manifested by the last mentioned position - voluntarism under the sign of mathematism - finding a great obstacle in the soul, so it cannot develop, because it finds no impact point, as the person has no aptitude for mathematics. Here the unfavorable character of the sextile is shown in the fact that there are no aptitudes for mathematics. So, this position is not possible: voluntarism in the sign of mathematism.

There is an inner law between the spiritual Cosmos and how a person stands in this spiritual Cosmos. If we turn to astrology symbols which in this case have a different meaning, we can say: At a certain time in Nietzsche's life Venus was in the Aries sign, but then when this constellation passed for his soul to the Sun, in the Taurus sign, he couldn't continue, couldn't go with Mars in the Gemini sign, but went in opposition. In other words he went with Mars in the Scorpio sign. The last phase of his philosophical career is characterized by him being with Mars in the Scorpio sign. But a person endures in this constellation – namely, when taking one of the positions below the idealism-realism line – only if they immerse themselves in a spiritual worldview, in occultism or something similar; otherwise these constellations necessarily exert an unfavorable influence on him. Hence, the tragic fate of Nietzsche. You can endure the higher constellations only if you are able to find your place in the world properly, through external life conditions. And you endure what is below the line drawn between idealism and realism only if you delve into spiritual science, which Nietzsche couldn't do. When I say "to find their place in the world externally" I refer to everything that can be achieved, for example, through education, through external life conditions; they are taken into account for everything above the idealism-realism line. And a meditative life, a life dedicated to studying and understanding spiritual science, is considered for everything below the idealism-realism line.

Anyone who deeply and sincerely desires to seek the truth about the world and to penetrate its mysteries must begin by discovering the person who will lead him to the discovery of the world. He must be able to represent in his soul the twelve shades of the world view and must live with the question: What is it like to be a Gnostic? What is it like to be an empiricist? What is it like to be a mystic, or a transcendentalist, a logician or a voluntarist?

Unilateralness is more often found in significant people than in ordinary people who more easily reconcile with different perspectives.

We can understand the finest details of the philosophical work of Wundt when we penetrate the secret of his particular soul configuration. Wundt is an example of a person who has formed a very precise opinion about the world. Why? Because he was stimulated from several different directions regarding his worldview and what he presented to people. Thus, Wundt was a good logician with his disposition of logic in the spiritual sign of sensualism. He was also a good empiricist with his disposition towards empiricism in the sign of materialism. We have thus an example from our time of the Sun – in a spiritual sense – in the sign of Gemini and Jupiter under the sign of Leo. This is Wundt.

The greatest gain we can achieve here is to look deeper and deeper into the spiritual structure of the world, to penetrate it with feeling and emotion. If I have achieved even one thing through a series of lectures like this, it would be to have prompted many of your souls to say: Yes, if we want to immerse ourselves in the spiritual world, in the world of truth and not error, then we must truly set out! For we must consider many things on this journey to reach the sources of truth. Even if at first it might seem that there are contradictions or things we can't understand, I tell myself that the world does not exist to be understood from any level of human understanding. I would rather be a seeker than someone who always stands before the world asking: What can I understand? What can't I understand?

If one becomes a seeker, seriously taking the path of the search, they will learn to realize that to even somewhat understand the world, one must bring impulses from various directions. And then they unlearn to always stand before the world asking if they understand this or that, but they keep searching and searching. The worst enemies of truth are closed world views, which tend to form into consolidated systems, thinking they can create a world from two or three thoughts.

The world is infinite, both qualitatively and quantitatively. It will be a true blessing if a few human souls wish to see clearly in connection with the infatuated one-sidedness that manifests with such terrible arrogance and claims to be a totality. I could say I speak these words with a bleeding heart: The greatest obstacle to understanding that in the brain there is a preparation activity for the activity of thinking, that the brain is transformed into a mirror reflecting the soul's life – a truth that could shed much light on many other problems of physiology – is the madness that contemporary physiology has fallen into, which talks of two types of nerves, motor and sensory nerves.

I touched on this issue in many lectures. For this theory, which haunts everywhere in physiology, to be produced, physiology had first to completely lose its mind. Yet today this theory, which acts as an obstacle to any real knowledge of the nature of thought and the nature of the soul, is accepted all over the Earth. Human thought will never be known if physiology presents such an obstacle to understanding thought. But we even achieved the feat that today physiology appears as an introduction to any psychology textbook, making it dependent on it. But in doing so, the path to the knowledge of cosmic thought is blocked. We learn to know what thought is in the Cosmos only when we feel ourselves in the truth of this thought which, as thought, has nothing to do with the brain, except that it itself is the master of this brain. But when we have known thought in its entity within ourselves as human thought, then we feel, with this thought, situated in the Cosmos, and our knowledge, regarding the true nature of human thought, expands to the knowledge of the true nature of cosmic thought. If we truly learn how we think, we learn how we are thought by the powers of the Cosmos. Yes, in this case, we even gain the possibility of glimpsing the logic of the hierarchies. The various components of the judgments made by hierarchies, the notions of hierarchies, I have already recorded in our scheme. The notions of hierarchies are the twelve signs of the spiritual zodiac, the seven dispositions from which worldviews arise, etc. And humans, they are judgments of the Cosmos, which come from these notions. In this way, we feel situated in the logic of the Cosmos, meaning, if we take things in the real sense, we feel situated in the logic of the hierarchies of the Cosmos, we feel, as souls, nestled in cosmic thought, just as we feel that the thought, the little thought we think, is nestled in our soul life.

Try to meditate once on the idea: "I think my thoughts. – I am a thought thought by the hierarchies of the Cosmos. The eternal essence of my being is due to the fact that the thinking of hierarchies is eternal. And when, one day, a category of hierarchies will have thought me through, I will be handed over – just as a teacher hands over a thought to a student – by one category to another category, to think me further, in what my true, eternal being is. In this way I feel myself in the bosom of the world of thoughts of the Cosmos.
