The Magical Carousel, a Zodiacal Odyssey ~ excerpt from Chapter 4 - CANCERLANDThe Magical Carousel, a Zodiacal Odyssey

Patrizia Norelli-Bachelet (Thea)

Republished, Notion Press, 2017

An Evolutionary Journey Through the Twelve Signs of the Zodiac

An Excerpt from CHAPTER 4 – Cancerland

The Feminine Principle

Soul, Ego, and Form

Darkness encloses them, like being suspended in a black onyx stone. The children can see nothing but they hope their carrier knows the way.

Before long they stop descending and can see the approaching surface of water which slowly becomes illuminated, as if by the reflection of the brightest full Moon; but there is no Moon. The bird glides smoothly over the water, circling many times until finally he seems to find what he is searching for. Gently and with great care he deposits Val and Pom-pom on what appears to be a rock slightly protruding above the top of the water. He then takes flight once more and is quickly lost in the ink black above.

Only the silvery water and the shiny rock where the children are standing can be seen. Tired now after the long journey and in spite of their fear, they curl up close to each other and fall into a deep sleep, in part brought on by the blackness enveloping them. For a long while they remain like this – who knows how long really – until they are awakened from their slumber by a soft rocking motion, ever so soft.

“What?” cries Val, “the rock is moving! We’re moving, Pom-pom. Wake up!” They shake the sleep out of their frail bodies and in no time are wide awake, with eyes enormous and shiny in the pitch darkness, trying to see where they are being taken. After a seemingly endless ride the water becomes less and less deep, more shallow until very soon the rock

cautiously emerges from the water and to the amazement, horror, fright and wonder of Val and Pom-pom, they see it is a huge crab they have been sleeping on, an enormous coral-coloured Crab!

They are now on a small beach and desperate to descend, but they don’t know how to get off the Crab’s back without falling into its huge pincers! There’s not much time to think about such problems, however, because the Crab, with these very pincers, snatches up the two and cautiously deposits them in front of a thick, sinister-looking door. With this accomplished, he slowly sinks back into the quiet waters he emerged from.

Val and Pom-pom anxiously want to leave this strange shore they have been placed on in the black night, and the door seems the only possible way. They bang and bang on it but no one answers. Val decides to look through the key-hole and as she comes closer she sees a symbol and the number 4.

She searches for the right key, which they have almost forgotten about, and then unlocks the door. As they push on it it gives way before them, emitting the eeriest of squeaks.

Inside there is nothing but a dark narrow stairway with two torches at the bottom. It is impossible to see where it leads and so Val and Pom-pom take the torches and begin to climb. At the top they find a small chamber with three doors.

“Which door is it, Valie?” asks Pom-pom. “Which door is what?” replies Val.

“The one we’re supposed to take,” he continues.“How should I know? I’ve never been here before. Let’s try the middle one.”

This they do and so come into another chamber, slightly larger, with two doors. They again choose a door to open and then come upon a third room, this time with five doors! And so, round and round they go, in and out doors, through passageways and corridors, into other chambers, up and down steps, and then – back into the first chamber! Both are quite frightened now because they can’t seem to find a way out of this labyrinth.

Aeon Centre of Cosmology

“Seeing in Understanding” during these uncertain times, Part 4This salient piece was written by Thea in 1973 as part of an unpublished Epilogue to her autobiography, “The Tenth Day of Victory”:

“We are at the commencement of a great of a new Age. We are the ones to pick up where the sages left off and lay the foundations for the next 2000 years and beyond; we are the ones who shall be responsible for the shape given to the element that is enveloping the world and pressing to manifest. Ours is a great good fortune, but also a tremendous responsibility.

We are faced with the Unknown; the line of action has been given, the path, the method for arriving at a certain goal in a sense, but the actual realisation of this goal is ever a mystery, and there is no one to evaluate our progress or to reveal the next step. We are left alone, and it is only the very Truth we seek to realise that is our Guide, our Teacher and our protection. We are but on the threshold of the new Age, with one foot only over the border into a new world, this land of the Unknown. Prophets have long spoken of the great change, the period around the year 2000 has been long indicated as the time of its advent. Any astrologer knows of its inevitability. I myself have written in detail of what is revealed in the Zodiac, the connection to the appearance of Christ and the link with the Age of Capricorn 2000 years in the future. In particular I have stressed the fact that the new Age demands a total relinquishing of the old values the old structures in every field, but in particular the spiritual life of man, for the movements of humanity’s evolution are all determined by the unfolding of the greater cosmic Soul revealed in the Zodiac, whose secrets can be found in the soul of man. There we can know the Absolute, we can converse with this Being and realise our identity with the Source of all, that which sustains each item and movement of Creation.

We repeat the old phrases: “The guru is to be found within,” “Truth is inside and not in the temple,” etc. But how many of us really understand these words and make them a living realisation? We cling to the old ways and we re-create them again and again. We are being taught to go within, we are being shown that no other way will lead us to the realisation of the goal all of humanity, consciously or unconsciously, is seeking to fulfil; and yet we cry out for the teacher, the priest, the dogma, the pattern, all outside ourselves. The Divine Mother seeks to manifest in each of us, to establish her own unique rapport, incredibly beautiful because of its uniqueness, and yet we set up others in her place, worship their ways follow their dictates and model our lives after their realisation. She is the Sun, but we covet the reflection of the Moon.”

An Evolutionary Journey Through the Twelve Signs of the Zodiac



An Excerpt from CHAPTER 3 – Geminiland

Mind

Pom-pom dries his tears and Val bends down on all fours to examine the bird that is transporting them. He is a gay creature with blue feathers and a tuft of yellow plumes on top of his head, carrying them along in a most distracted manner.

Finally it seems they have arrived at their destination, for the bird deposits his load in a very strange land indeed! A land in the air with clouds forming landscapes and a hubbub of people rushing to and fro, all carrying books under their arms and walking in two’s. They have scholarly faces and are very busy chatting and chatting away to each other.

For a long while Val and Pom-pom study their surroundings. They realise the cage is locked and after much indecision and talk about whether they should enter this land, they finally put their diverse opinions in accord and decide to try the third key. Bending down close to the lock of the cage they see a symbol and the number 3.

Val inserts the key and to their greatest joy the door opens: they are free!

The children rush out and are about to dash off when Val remembers her picture-book. Just before the cage vanishes she returns to fetch it and puts it under her arm as they hop off down the cloud road.



The people around do not seem very interested in the children; they walk hurriedly and most of them have their noses in books. There is quite a lot of noise because all are reading out loud and making such a racket. Val wonders how they can concentrate on their studies, for surely they are studying very seriously. The children are curious to know where everyone is going because the whole place seems to be moving toward something. The only problem is that the direction always changes and they find that many times these people are moving in circles. In spite of themselves Val and Pom-pom are obliged to enter the movement and they both agree it would be a good idea to find out where everyone is off to. Pom-pom runs down the road to sort of scout around, when he hears voices above the general reading hubbub saying: “Where’s your other half?” “How dare you walk around alone!” “What sort of primitive creature are you?”

He rushes back to Val and they cling to each other not daring to move for fear of doing something wrong and arousing the ill will of these creatures. Finally the indignant voices quiet down. “Psst!”

Val and Pom-pom remain in their state, undecided as to what to do. “Psst!” they hear again, and then another more insistent, “Pssssssst!”
