The premise of THE common MATRIX is important and exciting, for in it Rudhyar attributes great and causal traits to the zodiac. within the paintings, Rudhyar describes the zodiac (the common Matrix) as a important "electromagnetic box" of "zodiacal impact" that's completely anchored to the earth, the "emanations" of which "beat always upon us." but such statements, which would shock a few readers conversant in Rudhyar's astrological paintings, is absolutely in line with his lifelong metaphysics. certainly, the fundamental suggestion of fields enveloping the planet and people is of historic starting place, and it really is a vital part of Theosophy, from which Rudhyar principally drew his metaphysical underpinnings.
Here's a few pattern descriptions:
MARS IN LEO
"When the Leo-type of energies . . . are activated by means of the forceful and outgoing planet Mars, fireworks should be anticipated. This produces a colourful character, or at the very least a powerful will to dominate . . . there's an excessive urge towards dramatic self-expression; and, while concrete fabrics for self-expression or for private exhibit should not to be had, the individual is probably going to take advantage of imaginary materials."
MERCURY IN LIBRA
"In a adverse feel, Mercury in Libra finds a frivolous, butterfly mentality; and likewise a social urge that is extra an issue of highbrow attitudes than certainly one of deep realizations. psychological delight and sensitiveness to social feedback will be in proof; or an severe subservience of the psychological lifestyles to social or cultural traditions."
VENUS IN GEMINI
"When Gemini forces are illumined by means of the presence of Venus, reviews and sensations are valued generally for the that means which might be derived from them . . . therefore the individual with any such natal configuration may perhaps go from adventure to adventure, from human touch to extra human contacts just to supply nutrients for the advance of her experience of worth and her caliber of emotional reaction. . . . they're just like the 'kisses' given to the vegetation by way of the bee; all that the bee desires is honey. . . . it's higher to not develop into connected to people with a natal Venus in Gemini, if one desires lasting happiness; yet an intimate (though short) touch with them can be revealing and stimulating, for they're artists in expression and 'catalytic brokers' for growth."
MARS IN CANCER
"This is a slightly unsatisfactory place for Mars, simply because this planet symbolizes all outgoings and melanoma is a box for the task of concentrating and indrawing forces. therefore both Mars in melanoma isn't allowed to function with any measure of strength through a few inhibiting impacts, otherwise the power of Mars is thrust right into a paintings which isn't congenial . . . within the former case the individual born with Mars in melanoma demonstrates a vulnerable means for motion and for initiative, nice moodiness, irritability or so-called 'artistic' temperament. within the moment substitute he has a tendency to behave with competitive selfishness; he makes unreasonable calls for upon others . . . loses his feel of percentage and makes a convey of himself and his own problems."
