Esoteric Astrology - The Science of Triangles - Introductory Remarks
It will not, therefore, deal with the producing of events except in so far that all ideas work out into expression upon the plane of manifestation - such working out being, I again repeat, dependent upon the quality and nature of the apparatus of response, be it a solar system, a planet, the fourth kingdom in nature, or a human being.

I would add here a sixth reason for the present strain and stress in the response of the human family in this world crisis because it is related to the entire question of conscious response to subjective forces, expressing themselves as ideas and vast thought currents. This is the fact that humanity as a whole is today reversing itself upon the great zodiacal wheel just as the individual disciple does; the point of reversal and the sign or signs in which it takes place mark a momentous point of crisis in the life of this kingdom in nature, producing upheaval, difficulty and a whole gamut of readjustments, necessitated by the reorientation. [414] If you add this reason to the other five, you will not be astonished that the situation is today almost fantastic in its difficulty and the extent of the involvement.

In every triplicity, there are three major qualities manifesting or three basic energies seeking expression and influence. As he manifests in time and space, man discovers this to be true and to constitute a law in nature, and it might be said that the task of the disciple is to become consciously aware - like a detached onlooking Observer - of these energies and their expressing qualities as they function within himself. This he does upon the Path of Probation, the Path of Discipleship and the Path of Initiation. He has to become aware of:

  1. The threefold energy which is the personality, and of which the vital body is the synthetic expression.
  2. The threefold soul of which the egoic lotus is the expression.
  3. The triple monad of which a great diffusion in time and space in three streams of creative energy is the expression.

This last definition is somewhat meaningless to the uninitiate but must suffice. There is a manifesting aspect in all these triplicities which is the result of, and conditioned by, the interplay of the three forces. It is their full expression and the result of their successful activity.

  1. In the personality, it is the physical body.
  2. In the soul, it is the unfolded central bud within the egoic lotus.
  3. In the monad, it is the "sound which geometrically forces itself into the vision of the beholder" - a deeply esoteric mode of symbolizing that which cannot be expressed or reduced to the tangibility of form. [415]

If students will bring this idea to the study and understanding of the astrological triangles and will refuse to lose sight of the related triple energies, they will greatly simplify their studies. The microcosm, when known, holds ever the clue to the Macrocosm. The Macrocosm eternally reflects itself in man, the microcosm, and hence man has within himself the possibility and the potentiality of total comprehension.

Therefore, in all the many triplicities which we shall study, we shall find correspondences to the monad, the soul and the personality in man; we shall find one line of the triangle embodying determining and dominating force and two lines which - during a particular cycle - are conditioned by it. For instance, you have an interesting illustration of this in the nature of fire, esoterically understood, in its triple expression in time and space during a cycle of manifestation, for - as you know - the Ageless Wisdom teaches that there is:

  1. Electric fire - will - monad - Initiatory fire.
  2. Solar fire - love-wisdom - soul - Qualificatory fire.
  3. Fire by Friction - activity - personality - Purificatory fire. Intellectual.

I point out this triplicity as it is one which is familiar to you and at the same time constitutes a good illustration of a basic law.
