Symbols - What does heaven look like
Signs of the Zodiac
The Zodiac does not represent a map of the sky and its constellations, nor does it represent some esoteric ancient divination system, it is a symbolic representation of the types of activity one can find in the Method used for the Great Work.
Literally translated it means Zoe [life] and Diakos [wheel] – life’s wheel, but it might be better to think of it as a generic method.
It is a set of activities that can apply at the level of a vast increment of evolution, a smaller change to the planet, to a nation, to a culture, to a business, to a tribe, to a person or even to one activity of a person.
In almost every land and age, the zodiac's characteristics are the same – a circular form, 12 subdivisions with their signs and their relationship with the 7 planets. Egypt, Judea, Persia, India, Tibet, China, America, Greece and Northern Europe all knew zodiacal symbolism.
The existence of a truly systematic understanding of Zodiacal symbolism can be placed around 2,800 BC [2,750BC King Sargon of Agade].
- VIRGO - Business re-engineering – this is when we analyse [Analysis] the existing functions or activities in our system and then try to invent a better logical way in which they might be undertaken.
CANCER Installation – here we put the system in place [Implement ] it – it is ‘born’.
- stress testing - will it work under very heavy loads
- integration testing - will it work with other things
- functional testing– does it do what it was supposed to do
- support testing – do all the systems tat support it work
- performance testing - does it meet the performance targets
- LIBRA – Operation, where Support and help is given as the system is used and all the background Maintenance work is undertaken [bug fixing etc].
- TAURUS Procurement – this is an ongoing activity. As the project proceeds there may be all sorts of things that need to be brought in from ‘outside’ to help the project and to build the system.
- PISCES Disposal – once the new system is implemented and you are happy it works OK, you have to gradually remove the old system, which means that you have to dispose of the things that aren’t needed anymore.
- LEO - Project management – the management of the whole project, the creation and adaptation of the actual plan, the selection of the resources needed, the allocation of resources to tasks, the monitoring of the resources – motivation, appraisal and admonishment of people. It may also involve costing and budget management
Note that as in all the spiritual world there are Intelligences that are these systems - these are systems - functions and very complex sets of functions as such Intelligences exist for each one.
