The Astrological Sun - The Heart of Gold

"We have only to follow the thread of the hero path, and where we had thought to find an abomination, we shall find a God; where we had thought to slay another, we shall slay ourselves; where we had thought to travel outward, we shall come to the center of our own existence. And where we had thought to be alone, we shall be with all the world." Joseph Campbell

The Hero's Journey
There are many "hero cycle" myths, stories, and legends throughout ancient literature - all of which typically foretell the grave dangers and risks involved in the quest for our treasure of gold (as contained in the Sun)... and according to these legends, a worthy hero must appear that is equal to the task of rightfully defeating the dragon and laying claim to the priceless treasure of gold...

In the typical “hero’s cycle,” as identified by mythologist Joseph Campbell, the hero is born an orphan (or fatherless) and lives in the dark, quiet world of the Great Mother.

Call To Adventure - The Hero Cycle
Then one day... the hero receives a call to adventure. The hero heartlessly separates him/herself from the mother, and then sets out to experience the adventures of the noble quest.

Early on, in the journey, the hero battles with the color of red (anger) and continues to encounter the many different shapes and forms of the “feminine.” All of which the hero does with less than stellar results. The hero then accidentally stumbles upon the valued object of the quest, only to lose it again through the blissful, blinding inexperience of youth.

Many years will then pass (and many lessons will be learned) before the hero is once again able to gain access to and then acquire his/her valued treasure of the quest. Then the hero victoriously returns to civilization - graciously sharing with the kingdom, all the many riches, spoils, and gains that were obtained during the adventures of the quest.
