The Mutable Cross
The Cross of the Holy Spirit ~ the Hidden Christ


Mutable Cross Ponderings


This Cross produces the conditioning circumstances which transform the animal human into an aspirant.

This cross relates to the personality ~ of the steadily developing, and finally the steadily integrating human being. At first this takes place in response to circumstance, and later to soul inclination.

The Cross of temporal and temporary change, of fluidity and of those constantly altering environments driving the soul within the form from one extreme of experience to another, shuttles the life between the pairs of opposites.

This Cross of the Holy Spirit governs the form or body nature, organizing substance and evoking a sensitive response from substance itself. It controls the stages of the lower experiences of humanity, slowly reorienting the individual to a higher vision, a wider horizontal and vertical grasp of reality until that individual becomes an aspirant.

This is the Cross of the responsive form, nurturing and developing the life of the indwelling Christ, the hidden Soul or Lord of Being.

It is sometimes called the Common Cross because it conditions the common herd, the mass of humanity.


The secret of Gemini has to be grasped at the first initiation of Awakening (*) because it is the mystery of the relation of Father, Mother and Child. The birth of the Christ-child upon the physical plane is the consummating glory of the Gemini force. (**)


When we are talking about the crosses, are we talking about Gemini the sign or Gemini the constellation? They are interchangeable. The constellation empowers the sign.

* Awakening marks the very beginning of spiritual life. It is the first response of the Soul or Christ Energy to the invocative appeal of the personality. The hold of the physical body and its appetites is severed and the first impulse toward the construction of the antahkarana is registered. This initiation signals the first attempt of the Soul to control a still unintegrated personality. At first this is not registered in the brain consciousness but rather is a sensing or feeling in the beginning.
