Esoteric Astrology - The Zodiac and the Rays - Three Basic Statements
I have several times used the phrase "pass through" the centers and forms. This concept necessitates the idea of distributing centers to which the incoming energies may go and from which they may pass out again as radiation. Some idea of this might be grasped if I gave you the new proposition (new to you though old to esotericists) of the centers in the human etheric body. The four centers above the diaphragm - the heart, throat, ajna and head centers - are basically and primarily receiving centers. The centers below the diaphragm - the base of the spine, the sacral, solar plexus and spleen centers - are galvanized into activity by the four higher receiving centers. This, when accomplished, demonstrates as personality and physical magnetism and influence until the time comes when there is a reversal in the way of passing - as a soul - around the zodiac. This is symbolized as the revolution of the sun around the zodiac from Aries to Pisces instead of the reverse movement, from Aries to Taurus. This is repeated in the human frame and the four lower centers eventually return that which has come to them. They thus reverse the process normally followed and the centers above the diaphragm become radioactive, dynamic and magnetic. This is an intricate occult study and is concerned with the response of the etheric body to the incoming energies. It relates finally the lowest center at the base of the spine to the highest center, the head center. This is a correspondence to the relation of the Earth to the Sun. Think this out.

As we work and study over these matters, let us bear in mind always the fact that we are considering the seven rays and their interrelations in the cosmic process. We are concerned esoterically with:

  1. The seven rays and the twelve signs of the zodiac. [26]
  2. The seven rays and the twelve Creative Hierarchies.
  3. The seven rays and the planets as they govern the twelve houses of expression.

As we ponder and think and as we correlate the various aspects of the teaching, we shall find three propositions emerging which govern the inflow of life to the planet and to the individual man. These have been laid down earlier in A Treatise on the Seven Rays but it might profit us to state them here:

Proposition One - Every ray life is an expression of a solar life and every planet is therefore:

  1. Linked with every other planetary life.
  2. Animated by energy pouring into it from the seven solar systems, of which ours is one.
  3. Actuated by three streams of force:
    1. Coming from solar systems other than our own.
    2. Our own solar system.
    3. Our own planetary life.

Proposition Two - Each one of the ray lives is the recipient and the custodian of energies coming from

  1. The seven solar systems.
  2. The twelve constellations.

Proposition Three - It is the quality of a ray life - manifesting in time and space - which determines the phenomenal appearance.

Before we penetrate further into the consideration of our theme, I would like to emphasize two points:

  • First of all, that we are considering esoteric influences and not astrology, per se. Our subject is the seven rays and [27] their relationship to the zodiacal constellations - or - in other words - the interaction of the seven great Lives which inform our solar system with the twelve constellations which compose our zodiac.
  • Secondly, that we have necessarily to study these energies and their interplay from the angle of their effect upon the planet, and incidentally, their effect upon the forms in the various kingdoms of nature and particularly in connection with the fourth kingdom, the human, and with individual man - average man, the disciple and the initiate.

We shall enter into no definitions in connection with technical astrology, nor shall I use the many technical terms. If, in the presentation of this vast subject, and in the process of indicating the attitude of the Ageless Wisdom to this new and coming (yet very ancient) "science of effective energies," as it has been called, I may present a new approach, or point out an unsuspected relation and from the standpoint of the Ageless Wisdom correct what are deemed errors by the Teachers on the inner side of life, I am hoping that some astrologers may be found who will be sensitive to that which is new. I am believing that there are investigators along astrological lines who will be open-minded enough to recognize possible hypotheses and then to make fair experiment with them. May I repeat: I am not writing a treatise upon astrology, but one upon the seven rays and their equivalent and corresponding energies, upon the effects of ray energy and the interplay of these energies with, and their effect upon, the various planetary forces, particularly those of the Earth. I am looking for these fair-minded astrologers to make due experiment with the factors and suggestions which I may indicate. With this in mind, let us proceed. [28]
