Esoteric Astrology - Appendix - Suggestions for Students
26. "Mercury and Venus, the Sun and the Moon constitute the 'Guardian angels of the four corners of the Earth." [646] Note:
  1. The sun and moon veil hidden planets.
  2. These are the four Maharajas, connected with karma, humanity, cosmos and man.
  3. They are the Sun or its substitute - Michael.
    They are the Moon or its substitute - Gabriel.
    They are Mercury or its substitute - Raphael.
    They are Venus or its substitute - Uriel. (S.D. Vol. III, 459)

27. "Saturn - governs the devotional faculties.
Mercury - governs the intellectual facilities.
Jupiter - governs the sympathetic faculties.
The Sun - governs the governing faculties.
Mars - governs the selfish faculties.
Venus - governs the tenacious faculties.
Moon - governs the instinctual faculties." (S.D. Vol. III, 463)

28. "The seven Angels Who preside over the seven planets are the Builders of the Universe. They are the natural Guardians of the seven regions of our planetary system." (S.D. Vol. III, 115)

29. "The seven Builders graft the divine and the beneficent forces on to the gross material nature of the vegetable and mineral kingdoms every Second Round."
(S.D. Vol. III, 162; Note I)

30. "The seven planetary Spirits or Angels... are identical with the Dhyan Chohans of the esoteric doctrine and have been transformed into the archangels and the Spirits of the Presence by the Christian Church." (S.D. Vol. III, 160)

31. "The seven chief Deities... are the rays of the One Boundless Unity."
(S.D. Vol. III, 229) [647]

32. "Each of the seven chambers of the Pyramid was known by the name of one of the planets." (S.D. Vol. III, 247)

33. "The Kabiri were always the seven planets... who together with their Father, the Sun ...composed a powerful ogdoad." (S.D. Vol. III, 316)

34. "The Ancients knew of seven planets besides the sun... The seventh with two others were mystery planets." (S.D. Vol. III, 316, Note)

35. "The solar system is (from the higher cosmic planes) seen as a vast blue lotus and so on down the scale; even the tiny atom of substance can be so considered... The solar system is a twelve-petalled lotus, each petal being formed of forty-nine lesser petals. The planetary lotuses differ in each scheme and one of the secrets of initiation is revealed when the number of petals of:

  1. Our earth planet
  2. Our planetary polar opposite
  3. Our complementary equilibrizing planet
    is committed to the initiate." (C.F. 1018)

36. "Within the Hall of Wisdom, there exists a department of which the modern astrological organizations are dim and uncertain reflections. The Adepts connected with it work not with humanity but concern Themselves specifically with "casting the horoscopes" of the various great lives who inform... the kingdoms of nature, with ascertaining the nature of the karmic influences working out in the manifestation of the three planetary Logoi (mentioned under point 35 above)... They progress these various horoscopes [648] for the next stated cycle and Their records are of profound interest. I would conjure students to refrain from attempting to form cyclic computations of any kind for as yet the many constellations which exist only in physical matter of an etheric nature are unknown and unseen. Yet they are potent in influence and until etheric vision is developed, all calculations will be full of error." (C.F. 1057)

37. "A planetary Logos is the meeting place for two types of force, spiritual or logoic, which reaches Him... from the seven Rishis of the Great Bear on Their own plane, and, secondly, of buddhic force which is transmitted via the seven Sisters or the Pleiades from a constellation called The Dragon and from which has come the appellation 'The Dragon of Wisdom'." (C.F. 1162)
