During the influence of Capricorn, we harness the power of the earth to help us in our spiritual life.
"Saturn is the planet of death and becomes exalted in Capricorn. This sign is symbolized by a small goat, as if to remind us of the goatskin, of the intellectual animals with goatskin, of the need to eliminate what is animal-like within us, the animal entities that we carry within... The magnetic currents that ascend from the Earth become divine afterwards. The magnetic currents that ascend from the Earth, after passing through the sieves of the feet, continue along the calves, and when they arrive at the knees, they become charged with the lead of Saturn, thus acquiring solidity, form, strength. We are not talking about lead in its gross state; we are talking about lead in a subtle, colloidal state."
"During the sign of Capricorn, imagine a coffin on the ground. Walk over an imagined coffin located on the floor (imagine that the coffin is located between the legs). With bent knees walk (as if to clear an obstacle), while rotating the knees from left to right. This is done with the intention that the knees become charged with the lead of Saturn. It is also urgent to practice the exercises of internal meditation daily, praying to our Innermost to transport himself to the sidereal temples in order to bring the principal genii of that constellation before us, so that they may awaken the chakras and powers of the knees." —Practical Astrology by Samael Aun Weor
"We must accept our burdens gracefully, for when the student takes the Path, he is often plunged into ranges of experience which other men escape, in order to teach him to have command of himself in his environment, and thus learn the reason why he has been placed there."
