Calendar of the Soul

Northern Hemisphere

Week 6

There has arisen from its narrow limits
My self and finds itself
As revelation of all worlds
Within the sway of time and space;
The world, as archetype divine,
Displays to me at every turn
The truth of my own likeness.

Southern Hemisphere

Week 32

I feel my own force, bearing fruit
And gaining strength to give me to the world.
My inmost being I feel charged with power
To turn with clearer insight
Toward the weaving of life's destiny.

—Translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

Planetary Spheres and Their Influence on Mans Life on Earth and in the Spiritual Worlds

In these lectures, Rudolf Steiner describes the after-death states and the experiences we undergo, the influences of Ahrimanic Beings, man's spiritual connections with the planetary powers, and the preparations for re-incarnation. In death we learn the significance and meaning of death on earth, and this enlightening book reveals with clarity and vision something of the vastness of our earthly and cosmic existences.

Formerly published privately for members. Translated from the German by George and Mary Adams.
