Individual Human Development

August 6, 2009

spiral 2Okay, so the words that I want to use in the context of this blog are clear now, defined in my previous post. The next step is to describe my understanding of development.

Development as a growth in complexity that can be seen everywhere around us and which is perfectly reflected in the cycle of the zodiac.

Now the words and concepts that I want to use here are especially chosen for the human development.

A word like vision, that that I will use for sagittarius, is an aspect of the archetypical image of that sign, but expansion is also an aspect of that image.

The reason I chose the word vision, is because I see that as the healthy form of the polarity judgemental and withdrawal. Vision forced upon others might result in being judgemental and vision turned inside might result in withdrawal from the world.

The astrological concept of sagittarius is the beginning of the universal part of the zodiac, as the concept of leo is the beginning of the individual part, and aries the beginning of the primordial part.

The universal part means that the individual is becoming aware of being part of a bigger whole. And so the sign sagittarius is also the image of travelling and philosophy.

For the dividing in four, I use the words from integral theory. That is, I use the words objective and subjective, but instead of individual and collective, I chose personal and impersonal.

The reason is that it differs from the individual signs, leo (individual spirit), virgo (individual body), libra (individual mind) and scorpio (individidual soul), which I call expression, function, reflection and integration.
