Esoteric Astrology - The Sacred and the Non-Sacred Planets - The Centers, the Rays and the Signs
1. The Centers, the Rays and the Signs

We come now to a consideration - brief and inadequate but I hope suggestive - of the centers as they are related to [512] the planets, viewing these planets as expressions of and transmitters of ray influences. You will realize that I am only dealing with the interplay between the planets and the centers where man is concerned and only in a broad and general sense because that interplay is dependent upon

  1. The point of evolution.
  2. Whether the focus of the life is
    1. Below the diaphragm.
    2. Above the diaphragm.
    3. In process of transference from the lower to the higher.
  3. The rays of the personality and the soul.
  4. The condition of the centers and whether they are awakened, awakening or as yet undisturbed.

Only these generalizations are possible, owing to the vastness of the subject and the immensity of detail in the world of effects. Another complication lies in the fact that though there are seven major centers, there are twelve planets which - in time and space - condition the centers. It is the centers of initiates which are ruled only by the seven sacred planets; among average men, some of the sacred planets dominate and some of the non-sacred. In undeveloped man, the five non-sacred planets control, with the head and the heart centers under the rule of two sacred planets, which planets being determined by the rays of the soul and of the personality. As the ray type does not emerge until there is some measure of advanced development, it will be obvious to you that the theme is thereby complicated still further; that dogmatic assertions are not possible until such time as the astrologer is sure of the two major rays of the subject. [513]

Certain basic assertions can nevertheless be made:

1. All the centers are governed by one or other of the rays.

2. The rays use the planets as transmitting agencies and we know which rays - in this world cycle - are related to the different planets. As given earlier, they are as follows:

  • Sacred Planets
    1. Vulcan 1st ray
    2. Mercury 4th ray
    3. Venus 5th ray
    4. Jupiter 2nd ray
    5. Saturn 3rd ray (veiling a hidden planet)
    6. Neptune 6th ray
    7. Uranus 7th ray
  • Non-sacred Planets
    1. Mars 6th ray
    2. The Earth 3rd ray
    3. Pluto 1st ray
    4. The Moon 4th ray
    5. The Sun 2nd ray

3. Ordinary humanity is ruled by the exoteric planets; advanced humanity, disciples and initiates by the esoteric planets.

4. The Sun sign - with the exoteric planetary rulers - rules the personality, indicates inheritance and equipment and is a summation of that which has been, thus providing the background.

5. The rising sign, with the esoteric planetary rulers, indicates soul purpose and points the way to the future, offering opportunity.

6. The horoscope, built around the Sun sign, is adequate for ordinary humanity. The exoteric planets rule and the man lives within the limitations of the twelve houses.

7. The horoscope built up around the rising sign, with the esoteric planets ruling, will convey the destiny of the [514] disciple. As I told you, the disciple will later be responding to the influences of the twelve arms of the three Crosses as they pour their influences through the esoteric planetary rulers via the twelve houses.

8. The Sun sign, governed by the ruling esoteric planets and the rising sign governed also by the esoteric planets, can both be used in casting the horoscope of the initiate; when superimposed upon each other, the outer life of the initiate in the three worlds and the inner life of subjective realization will appear. This mode of superimposition will be a feature of the new astrology.

9. When the Sun sign, with the exoteric rulers, is worked out in a chart, the rising sign with the esoteric rulers is also worked out and the two are superimposed upon each other, the problem of the disciple in any one incarnation will appear.

If these statements are added to the three I earlier gave you, you will have twelve suggestions as to the lines along which new astrological investigation can run, providing proof of the accuracy of astrological deduction and the guarantee of the truth of what I tell you.
