Sabian Symbols: Light of the 6th race transmuted to the 7th
This universal idea is best expressed through planets in
Libra 2 (1° - 2°)
CENTRED SENSE OF SELF AS A CREATIVE POWER
The power to create new realities is real and so potentially dangerous; it must be rooted firmly in our awareness of who we are
In Jones's text the image has made reference to esoteric understandings and numerology that in essence suggest that having mastered 6 aspects of life, we reach up to the 7th, which is of a higher order. When a seeker moves on to these more subtle realms of consciousness it is necessary to have a firm grasp on who we are and what we are doing; there are real dangers. To guard against them we need to be totally convinced about exactly where we centre ourselves and what precise purposes we have.

Our race is transforming out of its current imperfections towards an enlightened future
According to certain esotericists, humanity is currently on the threshold between two significantly different levels of manifestation. Moving from the 6th to the 7th entails a transformational process, beginning first with the acknowledgement of our current imperfections and limitations.
We need carefully to study history, as if it were a mirror, to observe how our characteristics have been reflected by our circumstances. We live in a modern global society, an extremely complex configuration of thought and behaviour, and we need to understand who we are and what we are doing. This is our main task as 6th race beings.
What emerges into our awareness, during the process of reflection, is the truth of what we are valuing. There is evidence that we are showing too little appreciation for the gifts that have been bestowed. This shows in our poor physical health and various global abuses that have created climate change and the extinction of various species.
To cross the threshold is not a matter of journeying through physical distance, or even passing through time; we need to transmute light. Most individuals on Earth do not know how to achieve this, so those of us who do have a great task – to carry the burden for the rest.
We need to project a clear, strong, optimistic, enlightened vision for the future of our race.
We are challenged in this, on all sides. The powers against us would have us lose heart, feel weak, unguided, and prone to failure. We must not allow ourselves to indulge degenerate attitudes of complacency. We could lose all sense of reality, and become completely impractical. Many will regress into otherworldliness rather than face the hard facts of physical reality.
There needs to be found a legitimate balance between real and ideal – and we must learn to both encourage, and trust, every individual to reach their own unique potential. This is both the means, and the result, of the transition.
