Harmonics of the Spheres - a new book

Post by Mike Eyre » Thu Feb 13, 2020 11:27 pm

Hello All

I've been writing an astrology book over the last six years that is now finally in print. It builds on the work of Dane Rudhyar, who realised that when a celestial cycle unfolds in synchrony with the functioning of terrestrial wholes, what is unfolding is a cycle of being - a movement of emphasis back and forth between the principles of multiplicity and unity. This new book proposes that Rudhyar's insight can be taken a stage further - that each sub-cycle that unfolds during the unfoldment of a celestial cycle corresponds to a higher harmonic unfoldment of the cycle of being. For example, the element cycle is a 3rd harmonic unfoldment because occurs three times during each unfoldment of the celestial cycle. Just as three-ness has to do with the ability to understand and adapt to life, so each element - each quarter of the 3rd harmonic - represents a different way that an individual can naturally understand and adapt to life (this being the reason they correlate with Jung's functions of consciousness.) The book applies this principle to various divisions of various types of celestial cycle, and describes how each way of dividing a cycle into distinct stages takes certain harmonics into account while excluding others from consideration.

To see a fuller description of the book, and to 'look inside' a random sample of pages, please go to the link below.

Best wishes,

Mike

This gives a bit more information about how the proposed model works:

Rudhyar saw reality as the cyclic interplay of two polar-opposite principles: the principle of multiplicity and the principle of unity, referring to this interplay as the 'cycle of being'. Rudhyar realised that whenever a celestial cycle is unfolding in synchrony with a cycle of change in the functioning of terrestrial wholes, it is essentially a cycle of being that is unfolding. The shift of emphasis back and forth between multiplicity and unity is seen in the division of the zodiac into the individual and collective signs and with the similar treatment of the houses.

The model mentioned above proposes that a sub-cycle such as an element cycle is a higher harmonic unfoldment of the cycle of being. The element cycle is a 3rd harmonic unfoldment, because the element cycle occurs three times; and since three-ness has to do with understanding and adapting to life, each element represents a distinct way of doing this.

At the level of three-ness, individualism is emphasised in fire and earth, while collectivism is emphasised in air and water. The difference between fire and earth is accounted for by the fact that in fire, the principle of multiplicity is dominant and continuing to grow stronger, while in earth, the principle of multiplicity is dominant but becoming weaker. Similarly, the principle of unity is dominant and becoming stronger in air, and is dominant but becoming weaker in water.

So in fire and air, the principles of multiplicity and unity, respectively, can be expressed with relative freedom. But in earth and water, there is a need to integrate the two principles in recognition of the growing significance of the weaker principle. In earth, this manifests as greater awareness of the environment within which the individual is acting. (Thus, fiery individualism is more impulsive, while earthy individualism is more pragmatic.) In water, this manifests as the increased significance of the personal viewpoint of the individual. (Thus, airy relating is more rational, while watery relating is more sensitive and subjective.)
