Cross: Right Angle Cross of Tension
Eric Clapton has not been blessed with the easiest of Designs to live out in this lifetime. As a Manifestor on the Incarnation Cross of Tension, who is designed to learn by trial and error, he would have been both uncontrollable and especially provocative as a child. In his 'Not-self' he would create tension in those around him by trying to control them. He also has the most emotional of all channels, an adrenalised emoting that could bring the house down.
In many ways, one can see that music was a fabulous release for his emotional energy. Combined with his strong emotions Eric also has a natural ability to see the patterns in any logical sequence and bring the results of his prolific practice to glorious manifestation through his innate talent. This is someone who simply does not give up. He is able to struggle with the most difficult of problems in perfecting his musical talent. Indeed in perfecting the musical patterns, he discovers they can be universally substantiated and shared, thereby getting everyone on the same wavelength. Hence Eric's huge following.
He learns, as I've said, by trial and error, so things will go wrong, mistakes will be made. But Eric learns from them, and his mind is such that experiences from the past are beautifully exorcised in his deeply emotional, fantastically rich music. This is someone who loves to go into the depth of whatever he turns his attention to - a real resource of information and experience.
