The Rainbow Body
Impermanence & Immortality ~> & the astrology of death & dying
Written in 2017, for the ‘Constellation News’ magazine of the Institute of Vedic Wellbeing Conference in Kolkata January 2018, THIS PAPER on the Rainbow Body & the Astrology of Death and Dying is a work in progress – beginning at the Astrological Lodge of London, Theosophical Society, in 2015, when I also re-presented ‘soul’ as the subtle body for the second time (the first was in 2014 for the Astrological Association Magazine). Though the last presentation for Celestial Secrets in Gymea Australia, had further developments, The Rainbow Body and the Astrology of Death & Dying, is a presentation in three parts: 1) comparative historical, religious and astrological understanding, including Christian views on resurrection 2) Fascinating Chart analysis of people who worked in the death industry showing how our birth charts always resonate with our death chart 3) and the Rainbow body process itself, as taught by the masters of the Kalachakra lineage.
In the rainbow light of the interest this subject creates among spiritual seekers, I thought I would share now because the destiny-fulfilling North Node is in Gemini in its exaltation, to announce missions and present expansive information. Even though karmic nodal gates have closed a little for the time being, now IS the time to further our pre-mortal studies. By understanding our human connection to the cosmos, the elements and planet Earth, Sun and Moon, when the time comes for us to die, as surely it will – even if we don’t know when, where or how – to know how the Elements interact with the Sacred Light of our Spirit & Soul, Sun & Moon within, can help us to pass peacefully transition the bardos, and be one of life’s greatest blessings.
FYI: my work on Spirit Sun & Soul Moon is also ongoing, with more coming soon: watch this space!
I also thought you might also like to see a couple of photos of me talking about the Rainbow Body, Death & Dying, to audiences that felt a lot easier about the death process after the talk than before!
A you tube film taken in Kolkata ran into technical issues. If it resurfaces fixed, I will also share that too, as its also more expansive than the paper.
BIG LOVE & THANKS
