23rd Psalm and Astrology.

The LORD is my shepherd;
The Sun [symbol for LORD] is exalted in Aries, the Ram, or sheep. Sheep seek for a leader and a protector. The wise chose for their leader the LORD.
I shall not want.
It is a great possession for the desire-mind to be free of want, whether one has great or small riches of the earth
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
It is necessary for spirit to command the flighty Gemini dual mind to lie down [be still] in the presence of great knowledge so that the mind of principle [Sagittarius] may give understanding. Lie down = rest, a Cancer attribute.
he leadeth me beside the still waters.
Cancer, the subscious mind nurtures the psyche best when Leo [fire leadership] allows the worrisome subsciousness to be still.
He restoreth my soul:
Leo with its affinity with the Sun is idenity with the source of all life. St. Paul said we 'die daily' but we are renewed at Sun rise daily as well.
he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Right use [righteousness] is the order of Virgo for the purpose of service to the LORD. Discrimination leads one to do all in the LORD's ways (name).
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
Libra, the Fall of mankind in consciousness, is the awareness of death, the loss of awareness of unity with spirit.
I will fear no evil:
Fixed water [emotions] maintains self control in difficult situations.
for thou art with me;
What is more Sagittarian than awareness of the LORD's presence.
thy rod & thy staff they comfort me.
Discipline is welcomed for its benefits. Saturn rules bones, the 'rod' and 'staff' are symbols for the spinal columln and the spinal spirit fire which connects the head, heart and generative systems in the re-generated individual.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:
For the one who faints not but runs the full race, even tho you be crucified in the presence of 2 thieves, the cry of triumpth is "My God, My God, why hast thou Glorified me so?"
thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness & mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: & I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever." Amen

The summation of life. The oil gained by experience in service burns in the illuminated mind. If Sagittarius is awareness of the Lord then Pisces is the house (4th sign after the 9th) or soul body of the LORD.
