The Draconic Transverse - Yang and Yin
"The solar system is part of the myth of the northern constellation, Draco, the dragon or serpent. In ancient mythology the constellation is associated with death and salvation: the serpent is said to swallow up all souls that at death have not attained to gnosis (real knowledge) and to return them through its tail back to the world where they once again start a new life of struggle towards the gnosis which finally saves them from recurrence.
Yang and Yin
Draco is indeed a dragon or serpent. Its head is Yang and its tail is Yin. The profound cosmic principle of Yang and Yin is the mythical bridge between outer and inner. Yang is behind the apparent external created by our looking out consciously into the unconscious streaming down on to the surface of the earth; Yin is behind the unconscious within. Together, they represent the extent of the unconscious reality, which can only be sensed through myth. Myth alone transcends all conscious parameters."
