Hello all,

What is the archetype of Charon?

And why do the gods swear an oath on the river Styx? Am I right in that the Styx is yesod, and in us and this planet, very filthy, but it is the same waters that make us eternal gods? So first, like Dante, we must cross this water, and see its filth? If the Styx is transmuted, we become like Achilles? But like Achilles and his ankle, the Styx is the weakness of all the gods? Is this the reason for the oath, so that they would never break it and return to Charon into the inferno?

Also, of the other rivers, Acheron, Phlegethon and Cocytus, what too are their archetypes? Are they aspects of the inferno within the waters of yesod?

Would love some help on this and clarification.

Kind regards

Acheron, Phlegethon, Cocytus, and Styx find their correspondence with the four rivers of Eden. As above, so below.

The rivers of Hades are synthesized in Lethe, where the lost souls drink to forget their subterranean journey and devolve within oblivion. This especially occurs after the Second Death, when initiating a new cycle within the elementary mineral kingdom, to reconquer what they have lost.

We must use the ark to cross the rivers of Hades and investigate our own infernos. Charon, a poetic form of χαρωπός (charopós), signifies "of keen gaze.” We must use our discriminating, conscious perception when investigating hell, so as not to become confused and enter oblivion.

The solar gods, the warriors of Mars, emerge victorious like Achilles from the rivers of transmutation. However, even the solar gods have their weakness in the heel, a symbol of Yesod, for if they fornicate and enter animal generation, they become as Samson in the Book of Judges, failures.

"Navigating upon the waters of the Acheron, inside of the boat of Charon, I arrived to the other shore in order to inspect the work, then I saw thousands of Devil-’I’s, my own aggregates, parts of myself which were living in those regions."

"Nevertheless, it is urgent to comprehend that the sword, forged by Vulcan, must be incandescently tempered within the spermatic waters of the Styx lake."

Thank you, both Lion of Judah and Almustafa.

I had read that Samael quote you sent and it made sense. I had read that Charon was an infernal god, and here I can understand how an aspect of our mind can find its way through the dark aspects of our soul: thank you Almustafa for pointing that out with 'keen gaze'.

And I take it, like Samson, Achilles too became a failure? As he seems to be found in the mysteries of mercury within the submerged kingdoms of our soul in both the Odyssey and The Divine Comedy? Did this master (Achilles) fall?

I find myself highly drawn to Achilles, his symbol draws a lot of strength, and in my difficult periods at this present moment he has become a figure of hope. Maybe there is something about the martian energy that intimately relates to conquering lust that when one sees and feels it within the masters (such as VM Samael Aun Weor) and the heroic figures that correspond to that martian current, one feels infinite hope, and even glory!
