Earth in Aries

Earth in Aries

heliocentrically considered.
Also see Sun in Libra

The Earth stands for the sphere of experience (EA 126):

Those who have the Sun in Libra have the Earth placed heliocentrically in Aries. All astrologically impinge upon the Earth, and it is there/here that these energies must be applied in conformity with the Divine Plan.

The Earth, therefore, represents the field in which dharma must work out in practical action. When Aries qualifies the Earth position, the practical dharma should be pursued with vigor, independence and considerable expenditure of energy. We are told that Libran individuals are particularly effective upon the physical plane; perhaps the energy of the Aries Earth position contributes to this effectiveness. The Earth Represents the Base of the Spine Center: The symbols for the base of the spine center and for the planet Earth are identical. Earth is, monadically, a first ray planet and the Earth is strongly associated with systemic kundalini. Therefore, it is not surprising to see the Earth-symbol placed at the base of the spine from whence kundalini is activated.

The base of the spine represents survival, endurance and the activation of that aspect of the Divine Will which is latent in matter (kundalini). When Aries qualifies the Earth position in the chart, the kundalini experience can be fiery, which is perhaps why Libra (where the Sun is found when the Earth is heliocentrically placed in Aries) rules the “Royal Road” to Shamballa.

The Earth Represents the Spleen and Pranic Absorption:

The Earth is presently a non-sacred planet, and, when the seven sacred planets are assigned to the seven usual chakras, the Earth is given an assignment in relation to the spleen. The Sun/Earth Axis is a ‘vitality axis’ and aspects to that axis affect for good or ill the access to and absorption of pranic vitality. Theory will reasonably indicate that when Aries energies influence the Earth position, access to vitality should be immedi­ate, but expenditure may also be rapid. Aries is a physical sign but not an “earthy” sign, and so the natural absorption of prana may be somewhat compromised by that attitude in many Aries people which prevents them from paying sufficient attention to the body’s natural needs. All this will have to be researched more extensively. Certainly access to various energies is rapid when the Sun is in Aries. It will be necessary to confirm the degree to which this is true when the Sun is placed in Libra.

A Lesson for those with Earth in Aries:

Libran people are bent on cooperative endeavors and like to work in partnership. Their position of Earth in Aries, however, tells them that the practicalities of dharmic task is their own responsibility, and they cannot rely upon others to see that the dharma is fulfilled.
