CORRUPTION

***

Earth’s shadow corrupts

Moon, Mercury, and Venus

Souls there lacked something

***

NOTE: On the Moon, Mercury, and Venus, we see souls who are associated with a planet for negative reasons. The shadow of the Earth touched and corrupted these Spheres. First, the souls seen on the Moon did not keep their religious vows. Second, the souls seen on Mercury were excessively concerned about Earthly fame. Finally, the souls seen on Venus are those who took passionate love to an extreme. On the Sun and on the other planets we have yet to visit, the souls we will see will be associated with these Spheres for a positive reason — for something they had and have rather than for something they lacked.
