GEMINI: May 21st to June 21st
The natives of Gemini are of strict will, possess great courage, are versatile and like to travel a lot. Their lives are a mixture of successes and failures. At times they live in comfort and at times they have to endure much misery. They are very intelligent and become irritated easily. The defect of those born under Gemini is that of wanting to solve all things with their head; they always want to silence the wise voice of the heart and then they create problems of all kinds for themselves.
-Manual Of Practical Magic, Samael Aun Weor
You have already practiced the exercises of Taurus; now, we enter the brilliant constellation of Gemini.
This sign governs the arms, lungs and legs and is essentially of Mercurian nature. Gemini is the house of Mercury. The metal of this sign is Mercury. The stone is the golden Beryl and the color, yellow.
The lords of Mercury are already teaching mankind how to travel in the astral body. The disciple is inevitably concerned with learning how to travel in the astral body. The authentic mystery schools are found in the astral plane, that is why it is necessary for the disciple to learn how to “leave” in the astral body. It is necessary for the student to learn how to enter those sanctuaries of inner instruction to receive direct instruction from the Masters of the Great White Lodge.
The time has arrived when students have to learn how to enter those sanctuaries of the astral at will to receive direct teachings from the great instructors. The hour to abandon theories and to go directly to what is practical has arrived. The lords of Mercury help all those who ask for help.
In the future era, man will no longer be locked up in the body as in a prison cell. The human body will become a comfortable and luxurious temple. Man will learn to enter and leave it anytime he wants to.
Mercury is actually coming out of a cosmic night, but as time passes by, the cosmic effects of the sparkle of Mercury will be felt more intensely each time.
It is also indispensable that the disciple learns to “enter” through the doors of those “sidereal” temples in the astral body.
The main exercises of Gemini have as objective, to learn the use and maneuver of the astral body. In this sign, we also teach our disciples the secret art of the “Jinn” states, that will allow them to “carry” their physical bodies to the most secluded and remote places of the earth, in a few instants. We will give various clues in a numerical form:
1. The disciple should lie on his bed in a horizontal position. Relax the body so that no muscle applies pressure on the astral body. Become drowsy pronouncing the mantram “Rusti” like this: Ruuuuuuussssstiiiiiii.
This mantram is pronounced mentally. In those instants, the student should become a “spy of his own sleep”
When the student already finds himself in that state of drowsiness or somnolence that precedes sleep, he should get out of bed and leave the room. How? In what manner?
Almost all students suppose that it is an exercise of magnetism or auto-suggestion, etc., but they are lamentably mistaken because here we are not dealing with auto suggestion or hypnotisms. Simply get out of bed for Nature will do the rest. She will know how to separate the astral body from the physical body. The disciple merely needs to stand up and leave his room for Nature will do the rest.
Already out of his room, the student will take a little hop with the intention of floating in space and if he floats, he will then be able to transport himself to the Gnostic Church in a few seconds. But if he does not float, the disciple should once again get into bed and repeat the experiment. Some succeed immediately, others take months and even years to learn. But the “tenacious” succeeds in the end.
2. In an almost imperceptible manner, a keynote always resounds within the brain of every living being. That keynote is that of the ray to which each person belongs and seems to come from the cells of the cerebellum. Some hear the sound of small flutes of the Egyptian ray; others will hear the “gong” of the Oriental ray, others the roaring of the sea, of the lunar ray, etc. If the disciple silences all his thoughts in the calm of the night, he will hear his keynote; then he can cause that note to vibrate loudly, with will and when the note is already so loud that it invades and semi-paralyzes the entire physical body, the disciple should get out of bed and betake himself to the Gnostic Church for the Masters of the White
Brotherhood will receive him there with incomparable happiness.
3. If you find yourself dreaming that you are at a certain place and you awaken, then do not move, become sleepy once again, with your imagination set on the aforementioned place, feeling yourself there again as if trying to continue the dream just as it was unfolding, while you cling to that place of the dream with thy Will. Imagination and Will united in vibrant harmony is the key to this clue.
4. At the time of falling asleep, concentrate thy imagination and thy Will intensely, united in vibrant harmony, on a certain place or location. Concentration should be perfect and then begin walking with faith in the “imagined” place. You should not imagine that you are imagining, because the experiment will then fail. One should really feel oneself at the imagined place and totally forget the bedroom.
This experiment should be done during the state of transition between vigil and sleep and once at that place, kneel and ask thy own internal God to take you to the Holy Gnostic Church, which is the great Cathedral of the Soul and the temple in which the Solar Logos, our Lord, the Christ, officiates.
5. Keeping in mind that the soul wanders in all the familiar places or locations during ordinary sleep and that in a state of drowsiness it is occupied in the same trades and toils of the day, you should become accustomed to asking yourselves during the entire day: Where am I? Am I within the body or out of it? Then you will take a little hop with the intention of floating. It is logical that if you float, it is because you are out of the body, and if you do not float, it is because you are still in flesh and bones and continue your path. But, if you manage to float, ask your Inner-Self to take you to the Holy Gnostic Church.
One should ask this question in the presence of something which attracts his or her attention, such as a crowd of people, a funeral procession, a strange object, etc. Many have awakened their consciousness with this formidable clue, because on asking this question, they floated in the air and realized that they were out of the body and that the body had been left asleep in bed. “It is because the soul wanders when the body sleeps.” But the soul can come out of its unconscious drowsiness with this clue. During the day, you should become accustomed to this exercise so that it be recorded in the subconscious and act, during sleep.
6. Before falling asleep in your bed, you will do the following exercise of auto suggestion:
“I am going to sleep. Wherever I appear now is because I am in the astral body. I will recognize myself, I will recognize myself I will recognize myself and will direct myself to the Gnostic Church.” You can do this auto-suggestion for half an hour and then peacefully fall asleep. In the astral, you will mathematically recognize yourself and at the time of awakening, do not move. Do a retrospective exercise to remember where you have been.
7. Put yourself to sleep pronouncing the mantram: OMNIS BAUM IGNEOS; like this: Ommmmmnissssssbaaaaauuuuuuuummmmmmiiiiiignnneeeeeoooooooooooosssssss,
syllabicating the mantram, lengthening the sound of each vowel and praying to thy Inner Zodiacal
Self to take thee out of the body. Then softly get out of your bed and floating in space, go to the Gnostic Church. These are the seven clues to travel in the astral body.
When the theurgist “leaves” the physical body, he travels to the sidereal temples in the following manner:
The astral body begins to walk in the form of concentric circles, with the intention of reaching the heart-temple of a specific star. The panorama of things change in a few instants, the theurgist is in the presence of the sidereal temple and the guardians of the columns “J” and “B”. The theurgist will make
the strictly required salutes as we have taught in the previous pages, take the seven steps inside the heart-temple of the star and will then kneel at the feet of the Sidereal Genie. If the Genie says: “granted”, the disciple asks for “choir”; the Genie will make a sign and the army of the verb will begin to sing in sacred language to carry out the “work that we have asked for”. The army of the verb creates with the word. In these sublime moments we go into ecstasy. Entire Nature kneels before the Sidereal Gods and their ineffable canto elevates us to the plethora of light. The most divine and moving melodies saturate the infinite spaces and the waters of the rivers murmur in silence, “God is like this”. It is impossible to describe those instants of happiness in which the soul is loose.
There, the past and the future harmonize into an eternal now and we then feel the voice of the blessed who invites us to the “eternal wedding” from the most profound bottom of our Being.
When the disciple is already skilled in Astrotheurgy, the Sidereal Gods then accept him as a laybrother and give him a gray-colored robe and a rod. It is the robe of the Esoteric Astrologer. It is the ineffable robe of the theurgist. It is the robe of the authentic alchemist. As he progresses in his wisdom, he receives different degrees.
There, the disciple will learn how to combine the most diverse alchemical substances to produce different events in the different cosmic planes.…
Each star of heaven is an abode and the door of each celestial abode is the heart- temple.
When “out” of the body you invoke an inhabitant of another planet, you will see him come out from within the earth and on saying good-bye to you, you wilt see him sink into the depths of the earth. He has entered and left through the door of the interior of the earth.
You can also invoke your physical body from afar: you will kneel on the earth and pray to your Inner-Self like this: “Father, bring my body”. Then, thy Inner-Self wilt bring thee thy physical body. The atoms of your physical body will tell you: “I am your physical body, don’t you know me?” You will be astonished when you see thine own physical body in sleeping clothes, face to face, the same as you left it in bed! Then command thy physical body thus:
“Jump over my head and penetrate through my pineal gland”. The Physical body will obey you and you will be with your physical body in any remote place of the earth. If someone was to enter your room in those instants, he or she would not find you. He or she would only find your empty bed.
It is indispensable to take your physical body to the Gnostic Church every Friday and Sunday, at dawn to receive the Gnostic Holy Unction in flesh and bone.
You can also take the physical body from the very bed without the need of invoking it from afar.
Fall asleep vocalizing the following mantrams: “Miña Pica Frasco”.
Then slowly get out of thy bed, conserving your sleep. Execute a little hop and if you see thyself chubby and floating, then leave your house and betake thyself towards the Gnostic Church. The forces of the subconscious become activated during sleep and these powerful energies are precisely the ones which allow us to “place our physical body within the astral plane”. This is what is called the “jinn” state.
The sublime guru Huiracocha, Master Arnold Krumm Heller, talks to us about the ‘jinn” states in his Rosicrucian Novel...
Gemini is an Air sign and is the house of Mercury. The lords of Mercury gave man the soul-spirit or Buddhic body. The color of the hierarchies of Mercury is yellow or golden-yellow.
Gemini, or the sign of the twins, reminds us of the twin souls. The first woman that man knew in Eden is his twin soul. The twin souls keep meeting each other, life after life. Together they came out of Eden and together they should return to Eden. When Karma separates them, they suffer the inexpressible. True happiness in marriage can only be possible between two twin-souls.
When the marriage does not take place with the twin soul, it is a karmic marriage and one suffers the inexpressible.
The natives of Gemini are of a strong will; possess great courage, are versatile and like to travel. Their lives are a mixture of successes and failures. At times they live in comfort and at other times must endure much misery. They are very intelligent and become irritated very easily. The defect of the natives of Gemini is that they try to solve all things with their heads. They always want to silence the wise voice of the heart and then create problems and difficulties of all types.
The exercises of Gemini are the following:
The disciple should lie horizontally on his bed, relax his body and take five breaths of air with the intention that light now penetrates his lungs and bronchi. He will open his arms and legs with each inhalation and will close them with each exhalation. Then, seated on a comfortable chair, he will ask his Inner-Self to betake himself to the constellation of Gemini to bring the sidereal Gods of those temples, so that they will prepare his organism for practical magic.
-Zodiacal Course, Samael Aun Weor
During the zodiacal sign of Gemini, Gnostic students should lie down on their backs and relax the body. Next, one has to inhale the air five times and also exhale it five times; when one inhales one has to imagine that the light formerly accumulathd in the larynx, now acts on the bronchi and lungs. Upon inhaling, the legs and arms will be opened to the left and to the right; the legs and arms will be closed upon exhaling. Mercury is the metal of Gemini, its stone is the golden beryl and its color is yellow. Gemini natives love traveling a great deal; they commit the error of ignoring the wise voice of the heart, they want to resolve everything with the mind, they become angry easily, they are very dynamic, versatile, voluble, irritable, intelligent; their lives are full of successes and failures and they possess a mad courage. Gemini Natives are problematic due to their rare dualism, due to that double personality that characterizes them and which is symbolized among the Greeks by those mysterious brothers called Castor and Pollux. One never knows how the Gemini native will proceed in this or that case due precisely to their double personality. At any specific moment, the Gemini native results a very sincere friend, capable of sacrificing even his own life out of friendship for the person to whom he has offered his love, but at any other moment, he is capable of the worst infamies against that same loved person. The inferior type of Gemini is very dangerous and that is why his friendship is not advisable. The most serious defect of the Gemini natives is the tendency of falsely judging all persons.
