Esoteric Astrology - The Three Crosses - The Mutable Cross
CHAPTER VI - THE THREE CROSSES

I shall not be able to handle the subject of the three zodiacal Crosses - the Mutable, Fixed and Cardinal Crosses - in any detail, owing to the fact that they are concerned with the wholes or with the syntheses of manifestation and with the unified experience of an incarnating entity, be it God or man. They can, therefore, be truly comprehended only by those with an inclusive consciousness, i.e., with an initiate-awareness. Some general comments can, however, be made.

These three Crosses are as you know:

1. The Cross of the Hidden Christ - The Mutable Cross

  1. This is the Cross of the four major energies which produce the conditioning circumstances which transform animal man into an aspirant.
  2. It is, therefore, the Cross of the personality or of the steadily developing and finally integrating human being. This takes place at first in response to circumstance and later to soul inclination.
  3. It is the Cross of temporal and temporary change, of fluidity and of those constantly altering environments which drive the soul within the form from one extreme of experience to another, so that the life shuttles between the pairs of opposites. [554]
  4. It is the Cross of the responsive form, nurturing and developing the life of the indwelling Christ, the hidden Soul or Lord of Being.

The four arms of this Cross are Gemini - Virgo - Sagittarius - Pisces. It is sometimes called the Common Cross because it conditions the common herd, the mass of humanity.
