Arts and Astrology: Seeing through and deeper view.
Development of an operational map of self-sense and action in a gestalt of multiple principals,
with perceptual revelation in egoic function.

Worksheet 13-15.12.16  Arts and Astrology: Seeing through and deeper view.

Building outward, reading from the aspect patterns at center, to the planets and points of the main ring, then to the stars and nakshatras indicated without, development of the chart at right becomes a therapeutic means of working through, dealing with irrupting anxiety and structural confusion. The process of cognitive mapping in this sense serves to detach from investment, recenter and introspect, hear, see, and reconstrue with due cognizance of the group and root, attaining a deeper view of reality.

The exercise aims to better apprehend nature, orientation and path in gestalt, as indicated these past several weeks, during this time of transition, but what is most acutely observed, in the very act of identifying what there is to do, is how we do it, the shared workings of the group, the process of identifying and agreeing on what points, placements and patterns to choose. In the evolution of egoic function, we have shifted from focused mediation of ostensible disputes, differences of perspective or expressive pursuits in the group, to concerted effort in pursuit of a blueprint otherwise hidden from view.

This is a map of both discovery and intention, somewhat akin to a collage in the sense that the elements which comprise it present a whole that is greater than the sum, but there's another part of the process not thus described, and that is the sense of being led, guided to the the conclusion. This goes to the experience of immanent presence and core ordination. Apperceiving the deeper order...

At the moment, in this place at this time, what we see represents a good operational map of self-sense and action...
