Astrological Sun - The Heart of Gold
have only to follow the thread of the hero path, and where
we had thought to find an abomination, we shall find a God;
where we had thought to slay another, we shall slay ourselves;
where we had thought to travel outward, we shall come to
the center of our own existence. And where we had thought
to be alone, we shall be with all the world." Joseph
There are many "hero cycle" myths, stories,
and legends throughout ancient literature - all of
which typically foretell the grave dangers and risks
involved in the quest for our treasure of gold (as
contained in the Sun)... and according to these legends,
a worthy hero must appear that is equal to the task
of rightfully defeating the dragon and laying claim
to the priceless treasure of gold...
the typical “hero’s cycle,” as identified by mythologist
Joseph Campbell, the hero is born an orphan (or fatherless)
and lives in the dark, quiet world of the Great Mother.
To Adventure - The Hero Cycle
one day... the hero receives a call to adventure. The hero
heartlessly separates him/herself from the mother, and then
sets out to experience the adventures of the noble quest.
on, in the journey, the hero battles with the color of red
(anger) and continues to encounter the many different shapes
and forms of the “feminine.” All of which the hero does with
less than stellar results. The hero then accidentally stumbles
upon the valued object of the quest, only to lose it again
through the blissful, blinding inexperience of youth.
years will then pass (and many lessons will be learned) before
the hero is once again able to gain access to and then acquire
his/her valued treasure of the quest. Then the hero victoriously
returns to civilization - graciously sharing with the kingdom,
all the many riches, spoils, and gains that were obtained
during the adventures of the quest.
