Solstice Meditation Day 13: Sagittarius and the Teacher
For a recording of this Vision working, please click here:
Although the ninth sign of the Zodiac, Sagittarius is the final station in the 13 Days of Yule. Sagittarius' archetype is the Teacher, the true initiator from the spirits. They say when the student is ready, the teacher will appear, be it in the form of a flesh and blood, group, book or spirit.
Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, so Jupiterian correspondences help us connect with the Teacher in this working. The Wheel of Fortune tarot card, lapis, turquoise and sapphire, cinnamon, sage and the colors blue and purple all correspond to Jupiter. Use them in this final working in the 13 Days of Yule
Since this working will be a microcosm of the forces for the month when the Sun is in Sagittarius, you might want to pull a Tarot Card, Rune, Ogham or any other divination omen before, or after the workings, to give yourself further insight.
Entering into a meditative state. Prepare yourself and your space.
On Day Thirteenth of the Working, we call upon the Teacher Deity, the one who shows us the way into the Mysteries.
We call upon the Teacher
For this thirteenth and final time in this current cycle, rise up to the ecliptic, the royal road of the Sun, Moon and Stars. You passed through the fire temple, the healing temples, the hall of judgement and the dread door of initiation. Passed through a cycle of fire, earth, air and water, you are ready for the next octave of learning, through the aid of the teacher.
Find yourself in the Temples of Initiation beyond the veils. Walk in the darkness.
Soon you will encounter the Teacher, the one who holds both the book and the staff, reaching out to you.
The teacher is the one who helps us conjure good fortune, taking charge of our fate. Our goal is to apply the knowledge we've learned to true wisdom.
Commune with the Teacher about your path – where you are, where you've been and where you are going. Where you think you are going, and where you are truly going, can be two different paths.
Bring the Child of Light, the true seed grown wise, to the Teacher. For the Child of Light is both the one being initiated and the initiator. For there is One True Initiator....
Receive the Wisdom of the Teacher.
Blessed be thy Feet – For they walk the Sacred Path
Blessed be thy Knees – for they kneel at the Sacred Altars
Blessed be thy Loins – for they generate your Sacred Power
Blessed be thy Heart – for it holds the Sacred Balance
Blessed be thy Lips- for they speak the Sacred Words
Now you can be free from Fate, Free from the Cycle and walk among the Stars
We thank the Teacher. Blessed be.
