Can D60 (shastiamsa) be used to compared spiritual evolution of individuals?
Hi Ersnt and friends,
Can D60 of two different people be looked at in isolation to compare their spiritual evolution? So if one person's D60 is stronger(multiple planets in EX,MT,OH) than another(one planet in OH, one in DB), can it be concluded that one is spiritually more evolved(closer to the end in the journey of Self-realization) than the other? Or is it not as straightforward as that?
I am a huge fan of the D60 chart and I love using it in my readings. It really helps people conceptualize the current life their living and even gives insight into their past patterns and past lives. I've really been amazed at how my clients can relate to it.
However, I would really hesitate to use the D60 in this way. D60 shows us the really big deeper undercurrents and themes in our lives. It supports and powers the birthchart in this way.
I believe for spiritual "power" the vargas you would want to include would be the D20 and D24 in your analysis. I would add D12 for extra insight.
It is said that a fool obeys his planets and a wise person rules his planets. The energy put into judging where you or someone else is on the spiritual evolution spectrum is better spent on just simply governing yourself and living your life more effectively. It sounds deceivingly easy. It's better to make "making progress" your goal to work towards everyday than to lock yourself into a label and not feel as motivated. All of us on Earth have some significant amount of work to do.
The answers start coming faster after dedication and devotion to the process 🙂
Thanks for the encouraging words, Joanie.
Yes, I woudl not use any chart in isolation especially for something so sensitive as spiritual evolution.
