The Sphinx

“The Sphinx again symbolises man, with the mind and spirit of the human rising out of the animal desires and emotions.”-The Initiates of the Flame Manly P. Hall Pg 79

“The four fixed signs of which the Sphinx is a symbol are Taurus the Bull. Leo the Lion, Scorpio the Eagle, and Aquarius the Man, or the human head”-The Initiates of the Flame Manly P. Hall Pg 79

“It is said that in ancient times the Sphinx was the gateway of the pyramid, and that there was an underground passage which led from the Sphinx to Cheopa.

This would make the symbolism even more perfect, for the gateway to the spirit is through the bodies according to the ancients.” – The Initiates of the Flame Manly P. Hall Pg 79, 80
