Origins of Sexual Magic! #R# IS T # #SS#$C# O% T # SO&L TO '# %O&$()%or many hundreds of years, the *hiloso*hers and theologians have sought +yvarious methods to situate the essence of the soul Some, having failed, have deniedthat there is such an essence, and others have denied the existence of the soul Yet,others having argued ell, lifted the *attern of their reasoning very high, hen theyclaimed that the very essence of the soul as to +e found in reasoning, es*ecially*hiloso*hical reasoning, hich gives us the very life of the soul Our on vie is verysim*le, for +elieving as e do that all men have souls, e have noted that reasoning --es*ecially *hiloso*hical reasoning, ith its com*licated inductive and deductive*rocesses is limited to only certain *ersons ithin a s*ecific culture Surely., exclaimed M le (uc des 'ertiaux, .surely my slaves all have souls, forhaving them 'a*tised into Christ/s Church, I have freed them from sin and +ondage tomatter/ /'ut, my dear (uc, have you freed them in such a ay as to give themsomething to re*lace their anti0ue faiths) %or most certainly, it is in reasoningthat the soul comes to itself, finds itself, creates its essence/ /My dear sir/,re*lied the (uc, /hy do such as you *ersist in cultural errors My slaves +eingneither thomist, ramist, or cartesian, do not exercise themselves in *hiloso*hicalarguments %or not +eing %renchmen, their culture is not +ased on ratiocination andillata They have feelings, *assions, emotions, and ex*erience all things dee*ly andsensitively It as in these ays that they exhi+ited their souls, for only feelingis the universal evidence of soul, hereas reasoning refers to a culture, *ermeatedith intellectualism and it, hich e find to +e merely functions of the soul 'utfeeling, ithout dou+t, is the universally +ased essence of the soul in man1ind---itis not reasoning, hose crimes have nearly destroyed confidence in the soul, +ac1 in2aris. istoires

rises in mandue to his sexual +i*olarity, as he exists +eteen the sexual *rocesses of nature andthe 1ingdom of the animals, as ell as the higher sexual *rocesses of the iconos*here,in hose activities the gods and angels are seen to *artici*ate They 1ey to humannature then is seen to consist in understanding the nature of feeling, hich is the+asis of the soul In a *revious *a*er, e discussed the 0uestion of themandalase11lesia and ho man as related +y a certain cosmic analogy to the higherforces of the universe The *resent lesson and the one immediately folloing illena+le us to dra out the essence of the mandalase11lesia The +asis of this reality,hich is hat e term .the soul. is in the various manifestations of the iconos*hereithin man %eeling alone is a+le to ca*ture this energy and direct it in such ayshich are images of the cosmic *rocessM6TT#R, M6T#R$ITY, 6$( L&$6The source of feeling is to +e found in the astrological influence of those signsof the 8odiac hich are assigned to the !ater #lement9 Scor*io, 2isces, and Cancer%rom these signs come the most soulful and emotional of all human +eings, for theelement of !ater, called .6*astatta. in Yoga, and assigned +y our school to the triadof matter, maternity , and Luna, is the alchemical *rinci*le most closely associatedith the emotional life Matter, as in Scor*io, im*lies sexual life and *oer, hich isdee* feeling and emotionally that of fierce and continuous attachment 2iscesre*resents maternity, or the 0uiet sense of motherly *rotection and love Luna is  sexual *oer in the alchemical field of magic The *oer of Cancer +eing *erfectly*hallic is directed out from itself toards the cosmic s*aces and then +y aninseminating action, +rings forth all of the varieties of sexual feeling, hich as thesoul, +ecause it is feeling, is considered a oman, although the *rocess is masculineand active, rather than *assive6s the three signs of the 8odiac are related +y the element of !ater, so the threemodes of feeling are related, identified in themselves as each other, and +ecoming onein the *rocess of human evolution 2assion and emotional ex*erience, sexual attachment,if not *ossession, and dee*ly found sentiments, these are the cosmic grounds forexistence and the *rocesses of sexual magic If there is a lin1 +eteen human +eings,let it +e through the Moon in the ater signs, for this is the most *erfect +asis forsexual relationshi*s Let all lovers first see1 their Moon com*anions, and then loveill come forth from this reality 'ut in com*arison to the element of feeling, thereis a counter element, hich is the element of will; and, if feeling is the essence of thesoul, then the essence of the s*irit is in ill%ORM6, M6SC&LI$ITY, 6$( SOLTo +alance the rule of emotion, there must +e the rule of ill !ill is manifestedthrough the three .%ire signs. of the 8odiac9 Sagittarius, 6ries, and Leo %orma, orform, logical, legal, magical and *hiloso*hical exists in Sagittarius the high-*riestand tem*le layer of the 8odiac In form, emotion is given +oth structure anddirection Matter is sha*ed in Sagittarius Saturn in Sagittarius and :enus inSagittarius im*ly artistic and logical forms in *erfect magical use 6ries is the signof masculinity, the a+ility to ma1e decisions hich command and give strong directionto one/s life and to the destiny of others In astrology, the *osition of &ranus in6ries is *articularly favoura+le due to the fire of the magical *lanet +eing directedalong the commanding and active lines of *hallic-ill Leo, hoever, may +e considered,the most magical of all of the fire signs, for the sim*le reason that ithin Leo thereis *resent the *oer of the three other magical signs of the 8odiac, +ut only +y reasonof there +eing the Sun in Leo, for hen this occurs, then e see the Sun not only inLeo, creating and illing orlds into existence, +ut e see also Ca*ricorn, ith themagical tem*le of *hiloso*hical and cosmic treasures, Scor*io, the Lord of Sexual6ction,and 60uarius, the Lord of !isdom and Magic 6ll of these signs of the 8odiac,and these four su*reme elements of cosmic magic, are *resent in Sol Thus, e might saythat magical com*rehensiveness in Leo is *ossi+le hen the constellations cometogether, hich is li1eise true ith Sol in Scor*io, Ca*ricorn, and 60uarius Thisinner *rinci*le is very im*ortant for sexual magic as the four highest initiates ofthis #arth are re*resentatives of the archety*al consciousness *resent in these foursigns Thus, for exam*le
