December 27-28 – Aries
Consciously purify the astral body: antipathy and sympathy are converted into universal love. Passions and desires keep silent.
The power of Christ penetrates with his light and his strength what is Luciferic in us.
Mystery: The work on ourselves serves the best interests of the whole. The Archangel Uriel holds up a mirror in which we see ourselves as we are.
Rudolf Steiner’s indications for the Holy Nights given to Herbert Hahn
Translation from German by Laura Zanutto 2015 adjusted by Mark Willan 2016
27./28. – Widder
Bewusst den Astralkörper reinigen: Antipathie und Sympathie wird in All-Liebe umgewandelt. Leidenschaften und Begierden schweigen. Die Christuskraft durchleuchtet und durchkraftet in uns, was luziferisch ist.
Mysterium: Die Arbeit an uns selbst dient dem Wohl des Ganzen. Der Erzengel Uriel hält uns den Spiegel vor, in dem wir sehen, wie wir sind. ~Rudolf Steiner
Fourth Contemplation: Kristina Kaine
Even though we have three soul forces; Sentient / feeling soul, Mind / thinking soul and Consciousness / willing soul, our overall soul mood is centred in our feeling activities. Our basic experience of feeling in our soul is drawn to what we like and what we dislike, sympathy and antipathy, or love and hate.
If we think about our own disposition we can understand ourselves quite clearly if we observe what we accept and what we reject, what we are drawn to and what repels us. Some say that this is influenced by our upbringing but essentially it can be directly linked to our karma and our experiences from past lives.
So we are attracted to everything that pleases us and we ignore everything else. This means that a large part of this world passes us by unnoticed, as if it didn’t exist. This has a damaging effect on us and prevents us from engaging with our Higher Self and awaking the presence of Christ within us. Kristina Kaine 2011
