Sol Oil – tapping into the stream of power of the central light of our solar system.
Size: ½ ounce glass bottle
Sol, the Sun, is the center of our little universe, our solar system, nested in somewhere with all the others.
An important point for those who are new to astrology is about the word planet. Obviously the Sun is not a planet in the astronomical sense of the word and astrologers are well aware. The word planet comes from the Greek and it means “wanderer”.
So He’s not a planet but He is a Planet. I capitalize the word to illustrate the fact that there are powerful beings behind those hunks of rock, ice and gas, floating out there, in space. There are Gods, Goddesses, Angels, Demons and Spirits who call those rocks their own.
If we really must split hairs, then perhaps it’s safer to say it, this way. They’re not exactly behind those physical planets. They’re really more of the same nature as those planets.
Think of your favorite T-Shirt of a band or a movie. You aren’t in the band, you didn’t make the movie. But you identify with it. The beings we’re contacting through ritual magick are in alignment with the energies of those big hunks of rock and gas.
Sol (the Sun) is the King of glories, riches, titles and honors. As a Master of divination, He opens the windows of the worlds. Naturally, this is because the Sun sees all. Sol lends us His eyes and lets us borrow His Divine perspective.
Potentially, a drawback of His extensive rulership is overweening pride. However, He boosts self-esteem in the unhappy and brings light where once was only gloom. He rules over the Sign of Leo and exalts in the Ram of Aries.
Sol in the Qabalah
On the Tree of Life, the Sun finds its position in the canter, the Sephirah Tiphareth. The Divine Name is long, YHVH ELOAH VE-DAATH and the Archangel is Raphael. The Intelligence is Nakhiel and the Spirit’s name is Sorath.
Michael is the Archangel of Sol. His job is to bring forth the Divine LVX (light) which illuminates the hearts of men, that they might adore the Creator.
This all sounds fairly pious and Holy but be warned that the Spirits of the solar sphere are agents of extraordinary power. They regularly deal with the highest mortal rulers of the Earth and the Angels of Heaven, alike.
Merely rubbing elbows with these Spirits might exacerbate any issues of pride that lie in the magician’s heart. Take great care to remain humble in your dealings with them. Otherwise, one runs the risk of sliding into hubris, a surefire precursor to failure.
