Two Levels of Love – Mars-Venus and Uranus-Neptune by Dane Rudhyar | Rudhyar Archival Project | Astrological Articles

That Neptune-pervaded love is not a feeling of (as ordinarily meant) compassion for whatever experiences suffering or deprivation. This love is an act of transfiguration, a flow of light, a song of tenderness; it is mother love as well as lover love, for it seeks to hold everything — and, of course, more particularly, the object upon which the love is then focused — in the vast openness of a consciousness for which every contact is, or tends to be, a dissolution of boundaries and an absolution for past fears, refusals or sins.

As Venus is polarized by Mars, so is Neptune polarized by Uranus. Neptune is the “lashless eye” of divinity, always open to absorb light and receive the messages of need and longing from whoever is ready for transfiguration; Uranus is the response of the eye, the glowing glance that, to the individual yearning for release from the cyclic involvements of normality and productivity, is an intoxicating drink of “living waters,” a song of peace beyond yet through all tragedies.

  1. Goodstuff.! Liking the “lashless eye”. I have Rudhyar’s Astrological Signs here and this has reminded me of how he was the most poetically transcendent of the many astrologers I read.
    I had always thought Uranus was the higher form of Mercury as Neprtune is of Venus. Maybe this is just particular relationships of a certain timeframe.. Mars is paired with Venus but its higher form iis Pluto and Mars is also the raditional ruler of Scorpio

  2. Yes, it was the “lashless eye of divinity” line that hooked me, and the writing style – I’m not astrologically-minded and I wouldn’t ever be able to repeat his pairings or challenge them if asked, but I love the symbolic imagery he conjures up, and that definitely speaks to me!
