As told in Part Two of Geometric Keys of Vedic Wisdom (book), after an eight month download regarding the Vesica Piscis as a key of Vishnu's avatars and a key of their restoration of the Sanatana Dharma (Eternal Law) of the Vedic Seers and of the Vedas in 2016, the Vesica Piscis thereupon revealed itself, as a key of understanding the Seven Rivers of the Vedas, as well as the Vedic Kumbha or Jar in which these rivers are collected and from which they are released. While mountain biking along a dry creek bed I saw the Vedic River as a symbol of the Vesica Piscis arcing and flowing through the Zodiac (=Vedic Year/Sacrifice).
I saw that the first seven Vesicae Piscis (RIVERS) of the Zodiac flow precisely to the entrance to the sign of the Water Bearer — 0° Aquarius — and I saw the Aquarian Jar/Kumbha also as a veiled symbol of the Vesica Piscis. I likewise understood the Apocalyptic release of the Seven Vials/Bowls of St. John's Revelation as a spinoff of the Vedic Apocalypse which foretells of the un-eclipsing and establishment of the unifying Truth-Consciousness (= Solar Consciousness = Supramental Consciousness) in our world, in the Age of Aquarius (aka Kumbha) — the Age of the Water Bearer. This revelation occurred seven days before the passing of my teacher Patrizia Norelli-Bachelet (Thea). Below left is an image of the dry creek bed that helped me to SEE the geometric sense of the Vedic River, arcing and flowing through the Zodiac. The images that follow to the right are from my book and blog, demonstrating the flow of the Seven Rivers through ten signs of the Zodiac to Aquarius/Kumbha. The last image in this group is of the same creek bed, flowing with water, as it does most winters.

In the Rig Veda the Seven Rivers gestate and give birth to the Divine Son-Sage-Horse Agni, aka the self-purifying Soma Pavamana. And just like the Divine Son (Ray, Hidden One, Bull, Calf, etc.), the Seven (ETERNAL) Rivers have MANY alternative names or equivalencies, including Seven Mothers, Sisters, Cows, Mares, Daughters, Goddesses, Dawns, Virgins, Floods, Friends, Streams, Drops, Draughts (Libations), Ritual Offerings, Voices, Songs, Hymns, Tones, Thoughts, Flames, Communities, Reins, Castles, and Forts. I came to see that vesica piscis and the Aquarian Kumbha go by hundreds of names in the Vedas. And with this understanding of how the Vedic Seers hid their knowledge via myriad names of the same geometric and zodiacal figures, other mythologies throughout the world, including but not limited to mythologies prominently featuring the number SEVEN, began to make cohesive sense. The Seven Hathors (Cow-headed goddesses) of Egypt, featured in the banner above, is one example. The Seven Rituals of White Buffalo Calf Woman is another. I have discussed many of these inter-related symbols in my book and blog, and others I have not yet had time to write about, including some of the symbols AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE. Hopefully it won't be long until I get around to discussing the seven-base symbols and mythologies that I haven't addressed yet. (Note: The images I have written about are, or soon will be, active links to an article where I've discussed the geometric, zodiacal and Vedic sense of the imagery.)
It is necessary to mention that once I saw that the first seven Vesicae Piscis of the Zodiac measure out 0° Aquarius, I realized that Thea's seeing of the zodiacal location of the release of the Seven Rivers at 10° Capricorn—the 7 Point of the Year—was off by 20°. She correctly saw and understood the release of the Seven Rivers as a victory occurring in the heavenly Swar quadrant—the final quadrant of the Zodiac, but she was simply unaware that these sacred and eternal rivers represent the Sanatana Dharma (Eternal Law) and Divine Maya (Divine Measure) of the Vesica Piscis and its indwelling Radius (=Son) that together measure out the circle of the Zodiac. As a result, she did not see the geometric dynamics of how and where, exactly, the seven rivers (=sisters=mothers=cows, etc.) of the Vedic Year (=Sacrifice), bear Agni, as the conquering Son, Sage, Horse, forward to his resting place in the Jar/Kumbha of Aquarius – the place from which the Vedic and Zodiacal waters are released. Thea’s view of the location of the seven rivers in the 10th month of Capricorn, as presented in The New Way, Vols. 1 & 2 is shown to the right and then again below, far-left. Below, far-right, I have added the circle (the SOLAR HALO) and arc of the Seventh-Mother (aka Saraswati), formed by the indwelling ray/radius of the Sagittarian Son-Sage-Horse who flows to the Jar/Kumbha of Aquarius – the meeting or gathering place of the rivers and of the Vedic gods and goddesses.

I experienced the download of revelations about the Seven Rivers and about the role the Vesica Piscis plays in the restoration of the Sanatana Dharma in 2016 as a great Supramental and Vedic Victory which unfolded in conjunction with Thea’s passing. I experienced it as an unexpected birth of new keys of unifying gnosis, as well as the birth of whole new experience and understanding of the Supramental Yoga, the Vedic and Biblical "Apocalypse", the sign and Age of Aquarius, and of my own life and yoga as well.
What I have shared about this birth of new gnosis has been met by the bulk of Thea’s small “Inner Circle” of students (of which I was a part) with a combination of disinterest, dismissal, and accusations to the effect that I am out to “negate” and diminish Thea’s work. The problem that I present for these students is multi-fold, but it largely boils down to their inability to accept that Thea was missing something in her seeing and understanding of the Vedic Rivers, and the location of their release in the Zodiac; and likewise, their inability to accept that I received gnosis in conjunction with Thea's passing that furthers Sri Aurobindo's avataric mission of restoring the Sanatana Dharma. They interpret my story of receiving the geometric key of the Vedas and my presentations of its importance and significance as essentially heresy, egoic self-aggrandizement, and falsehood. As a result, I have little to no contact with this group of students anymore, a handful of whom have taken over the management of Thea's centre in India (Aeon Centre of Cosmology).
In my view and experience, Thea's incomplete understanding of the Vedic Rivers does not diminish her yoga in any way. In the Supramental view and consciousness, one can see that everything is organized to perfection, exactly as needed, without exception, including that which is withheld from our consciousness. Via this view, one can appreciate that Thea saw, presented and accomplished exactly what she needed to in the course of her yoga. As I see it, Sri Aurobindo, the Mother, and Thea collectively accomplished—over a course of 144 years (1872-2016)—the release of the geometric and zodiacal sense of the Vedic Rivers (=sisters, mothers, goddesses, cows, mares, etc.). And I understand my role in this Supramental play, as being an Aquarian vessel—i.e., born in the sign of the Water Bearer—responsible for receiving and pouring out the long-forgotten sense, truth, and Eternal Law of these purifying “Waters” and their sacred Vessel (=Jar=Kumbha) in the Age of Aquarius. I see these Vedic rivers and their eternal form and law as being collectively and progressively liberated by Sri Aurobindo, the Mother, and Thea, from the cave of linear mental Ignorance. The Circle-born form of the Vedic Rivers simply could not be SEEN and FULLY LIBERATED until Thea completed her yoga and the Spherical Consciousness of the Vedic Rishis and the 360° zodiacal context of the Vedic Sacrifice (and thus of the Rig Veda itself) was firmly reestablished on Earth.
