To evidence readiness for initiation. To demonstrate sensitivity to the PlanAstrology, 204:constellations, therefore, form a triangle of initiation of profound importance because it providesAstrology, 207:and which must be finally overcome before initiation can be taken.

Soul inspires personality life. SoulAstrology, 229:Initiate. I would here remind you that, though initiation is taken in Capricorn, the man is anAstrology, 229:he is initiated. This is the true secret of initiation. You have, therefore, the activity whereinAstrology, 230:controlled life of the disciple in Sagittarius, initiation in Capricorn, followed by service inAstrology, 231:or accepted disciples or upon the Path of Initiation. Eventually, in some mysterious way, thereAstrology, 239:present is preparing the world disciple to take initiation. During the vast interim between theAstrology, 239:words: Creation, Manifestation, Legislation and Initiation. Having given you these words, theirAstrology, 240:activity. They mean, finally, the processes of initiation wherein, step by step and stage by stage,Astrology, 240:but leading to an absolute consummation. This is Initiation, or activity in Capricorn. All this isAstrology, 241:his own initiator and is thus ready to take initiation. Such are the paradoxes of the spiritualAstrology, 241:Aquarius, the Water-Carrier - Fixed Cross - Initiation. These three, therefore, stand for duality -Astrology, 241:to the service of the Whole. Forget not that initiation is but another name for synthesis andAstrology, 247:- Condition - Interplay. Capricorn - Synthesis - Initiation - Attainment. Aquarius - Objective -Astrology, 258:The emergence of the World Savior. The stage of Initiation. Throughout this relation and as aAstrology, 259:Hidden Light of God Capricorn - Incentive behind initiation (Service).

All this, however, takesAstrology, 262:signs from Capricorn to Pisces, until the third initiation, including Capricorn. Pisces - Birth -Astrology, 264:or manifested expression. Nine is the number of initiation as far as humanity is concerned. ThereAstrology, 265:initiations of which Christ has two. One cosmic initiation which relates a man to Sirius.

In the stage of initiation, the energies of the signs and theirAstrology, 269:real reason for this is one of the secrets of initiation and is hidden in the destiny of the fourthAstrology, 269:of manifested expression and at the last major initiation, he will be responsive to the synthesisAstrology, 272:present in Virgo. Aries sees the beginning or initiation of the relationship between spirit andAstrology, 275:which is a result of chosen experience after initiation. It connotes mass life, leading to groupAstrology, 275:leading to group life after the experience of initiation, for which its polar opposite, Capricorn,Astrology, 276:up to and immediately preceding the third initiation, is based upon the wheel of the zodiacAstrology, 276:that "tearing asunder" which always precedes initiation and illumination and which is testified toAstrology, 279:system and in this system governs the path of initiation, which is trodden by the flower of theAstrology, 280:which comes to the man who has taken the third initiation. It is connected naturally with theAstrology, 280:Until a man has, however, taken this initiation, he profits not from anything that I could tell himAstrology, 284:of intellect into wisdom, then he is ready for initiation. He is rapidly achieving liberation. TheAstrology, 286:sign of the zodiac, for it is the processes of initiation which make the self-conscious person theAstrology, 294:that it will be found that before the Door of Initiation lies the burning ground which allAstrology, 298:that the disciple is now ready for the second initiation. This orientation is brought about by whatAstrology, 298:horoscope of the Leo subject and the theme of initiation, I would point out that when the Sun, theAstrology, 298:is called the "sign" of the man who is to take initiation. Leo, being the fifth sign of the zodiac,Astrology, 298:when the "eighth gate" was opened and a major initiation of our planetary Logos took place,Astrology, 299:I earlier referred: Leo-Scorpio, leading to initiation in Capricorn. As we are upon the subject,Astrology, 299:home of that greater Lodge to which our fifth initiation admits a man and to which it brings him,Astrology, 299:inner awakening which prepares the aspirant for initiation. This higher quaternary isAstrology, 300:is not consciously felt until after the third initiation when the true nature of the spirit aspectAstrology, 300:initiate in this sign, and after the third initiation, Sirius becomes a major life factor. HeAstrology, 301:alignment corresponds to a very high stage of initiation, it will not be possible to grasp all theAstrology, 304:of the age (as it is now at the final or seventh initiation) - the Initiator of the Mysteries willAstrology, 304:humanity is, as yet, earth-bound. The forces of initiation produce their major effects upon theAstrology, 306:Uranus and Neptune; in the man who is ready for initiation you have, therefore, a dual control,Astrology, 307:desires. Before individual man can achieve initiation, he must be fully self-conscious, mysticallyAstrology, 313:soul or body. Therefore, until after the third initiation - as you have oft been told - there isAstrology, 314:to each other. In Capricorn, the sign of initiation, this basic triplicity begins to return to theAstrology, 316:of life in form. In Capricorn, at the third initiation, this life aspect assumes primaryAstrology, 320:tests and trials of the initiate up to the third initiation are directed to this end. Such is theAstrology, 325:must therefore remain relatively obscure until initiation has been taken. Esoterically speaking,Astrology, 326:by man. It is one of the secrets of the first initiation and these secrets are today in process ofAstrology, 328:of its cosmic effects - one of the secrets of initiation and this for a long time to come. It will,Astrology, 330:center of the light. Capricorn - The Light of Initiation. This is the light which clears the way toAstrology, 334:becomes definitely active and effective after initiation. It is consequently of small use to theAstrology, 335:beginnings. Of the significance of the first initiation. Through a study of the Fixed Cross -Astrology, 335:into synthesis. Of the significance of the third initiation. Through a study of the Mutable Cross -Astrology, 335:Of disciples. Of group activity. Of the second initiation. The above indications may not conform toAstrology, 336:therefore of death but also the point of highest initiation and of entrance into the life aspect ofAstrology, 337:the door of Cancer, or to soul life, leading to initiation through the door of Capricorn. It isAstrology, 339:activity and a demonstrated readiness for initiation. There is the waning of the power of form andAstrology, 341:and - because this is the final cross of initiation - one which will only become really clear whenAstrology, 343:and to brave in Capricorn the  trials of initiation and the breaking of all the bonds whichAstrology, 352:therefore, upon the reversed wheel, leading to initiation, the etheric body becomes the transmitterAstrology, 354:carries the disciples to the stage of the third initiation.

In this statement and in theAstrology, 357:through Venus, which will enable the man to take initiation. These three energies, focused throughAstrology, 359:initial beginnings  as in incarnation, or initiation, or the start of organization as well asAstrology, 359:which is never the case until after the third initiation. I have here emphasized two of theseAstrology, 363:such as is the case with the man after the third initiation. A non-sacred planet, such as theAstrology, 369:is, esoterically speaking, one of the secrets of initiation. The clue to the mystery lies in theAstrology, 374:instead of to the mountain of vision and initiation? This is the situation which confronts theAstrology, 383:of human life will only be revealed at the third initiation, at which time all glamor and illusionAstrology, 385:had overcome it in the depths. Into the cave of Initiation, the light of resurrection streams whenAstrology, 387:Three signs are also closely connected with initiation. The hidden secret of Aries, Taurus andAstrology, 387:cycles and of emerging opportunity. At the third initiation, the initiate begins to understand theAstrology, 388:The secret of Taurus is revealed at the second initiation by the sudden removal or disappearance ofAstrology, 388:humanity - as a whole - will enact when it takes initiation in Taurus. The secret of Gemini has toAstrology, 388:secret of Gemini has to be grasped at the first initiation because it is the mystery of theAstrology, 389:Christ." This is one of the symbols of the sixth initiation and is the inner correspondence Astrology, 390:which is begun or "entered into" at the first initiation is consummated and completed in Pisces.Astrology, 390:desire to incarnate) takes form at the second initiation in the will-to-liberation in Taurus andAstrology, 390:initiate from the disciple. This, at the third initiation becomes a fixed attitude in Capricorn.
