Esoteric Astrology - The Nature of Esoteric Astrology - Spiritual Effects of the Zodiacal Constellations
You will note that these relationships between the signs are not those of the opposites but intermediate signs and, therefore, marking the intermediate period of relationship and not consummation as is the case when such opposites as Leo and Aquarius or Cancer and Capricorn are considered. These relationships, it will be found, create quite definite geometrical forms just as the crosses, formed between the opposites create the three crosses of the heavens. I commend this to your consideration. The above tabulation gives you a new and inner relation of the signs to each other and one which only becomes definitely active and effective after initiation. It is consequently of small use to the average reader at this time, though it opens up, nevertheless, new astrological contacts and influences most of which are established through the ray influences and which require a grasp of individual evolutionary status for correct interpretation. It is essential, for their right understanding that the astrologer knows whether the subject is relatively unevolved, whether he is an advanced man or whether he is upon one or other stages of the Path. There is so much to be reckoned with in the new esoteric astrology - prediction, interpretation from the standpoint of both the personality and the soul, character indications, as well as a close study of the Law of Rebirth as it can be arrived at through an understanding of the influences of Cancer. One thing which will later emerge, but which is at present impossible of elucidation, is the fact that the twelve Creative Hierarchies are all connected with one or other of the twelve signs of the zodiac and these all definitely affect the human family and the unit in that family also. A close study of the relations indicated in this new tabulation and a study also of the Hierarchies and the signs will cause a drastic revolution in modern astrology and one of most basic importance. More [335] than this I cannot here indicate and more will not be possible until the present astrologers have done some concentrated work along the lines here designated.

Simple as it sounds when stated, the most fundamental point for astrologers to grasp today is the need for them to know - prior to interpretation - where, upon the path of evolution, the subject under consideration stands. One other hint I will give. It will be from a study of those people who are born in the Cardinal Signs that the clearest information will emerge in this connection. It might be useful to point out here that:

  1. Through a study of the Cardinal Cross - Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn - the astrologer can arrive at a clearer understanding:
    1. Of ordinary, individual, human beings.
    2. Of group beginnings.
    3. Of the significance of the first initiation.
  2. Through a study of the Fixed Cross - Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius - he will arrive at a right interpretation of the lives:
    1. Of initiates.
    2. Of group absorption into synthesis.
    3. Of the significance of the third initiation.
  3. Through a study of the Mutable Cross - Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces - he can arrive at the significance:
    1. Of disciples.
    2. Of group activity.
    3. Of the second initiation.

The above indications may not conform to the ideas generally held, and appear to reverse also some of the points [336] which I have earlier made, but a careful study of the suggested implications may make the point clearer. Every Cross has its exoteric significance and with this all astrologers are somewhat familiar; it has also its esoteric meaning and import and this is as yet an untried field of investigation; and it has its spiritual importance, and this of course is only revealed at the major initiations. It should be remembered that these are the threefold differentiations of the One Life and that Capricorn, for instance, marks not only the point of the deepest concretion and therefore of death but also the point of highest initiation and of entrance into the life aspect of deity.

I cannot too strongly reiterate the constant necessity for you to think in terms of energies and forces, of lines of force, and energy relationships; astrologers must also think more in terms of qualities and of characteristics, as is the trend of the more advanced astrology today. The whole story of astrology is, in reality, one of magnetic and magical interplay for the production or externalization of the inner reality; it is the story of the response of form - vast as in a solar system, microcosmic as in a human being, and minute as in an atom or a cell - to the urge or pull of foci of energy and of streams of force. These two are not identical, but must be taken into the calculations of the investigating astrologer and his interpretations.

It is the focused energy of Cancer which makes it a major magnetic or attractive focal point leading to the processes of incarnation. Through the door of Cancer streams the "magnetic magical light which guides the soul into the dark place of experience." Similarly, it is the magical pull of Capricornian energy which upon the returning wheel (in contradistinction to the wheel of rebirth or the outgoing wheel) of expression and of discipleship draws the [337] soul steadily away from form life and experience and constitutes that "radiant light which leads the soul in safety to the mountain top." In the recognition of this comes elucidation of the fact that in time and space the controlling factor and determining condition is the sensitivity of the incarnated soul to form life, leading to incarnation through the door of Cancer, or to soul life, leading to initiation through the door of Capricorn. It is also in the relation of these two signs to each other that you get one of the clearest pictures of the interplay between the pairs of opposites as they exist in the zodiac, and it might profit us here for a minute to study the two types of consummation which this interplay between opposite signs brings about. I will endeavor to put these for you in tabular and suggestive form for your later consideration and study. The consummation on both the form side and the soul side might be expressed as follows, bearing ever in mind the limitations of language:
