Esoteric Astrology - Appendix - Suggestions for Students
The Sacred and non-sacred planets and the rays:


38. The exoteric non-sacred planets are called in occult parlance "the outer round" or outer circle of initiates. Of these our Earth is one but being aligned in a peculiar fashion with certain spheres (or planets) on the inner round a dual opportunity exists for humanity which facilitates, whilst it complicates, the evolutionary process. The sacred planets are called often the 'seven grades of psychic knowledge' or the 'seven divisions of the field of knowledge'." (C.F. 1175)

The following from The Secret Doctrine Vol. III, page 455, Diagram II, is suggestive, though exoteric and deliberately misleading as the sacred and non-sacred planets are mixed together and many planets omitted altogether,

Planet Human Principle Color Weekday
1. Mars Kama-rupa Red Tuesday
2. The Sun Prana, Life Orange Sunday
3. Mercury Buddhi Yellow Wednesday
4. Saturn Kama-Manas Green Saturday
5. Jupiter Auric envelope Blue Thursday
6. Venus Manas, Higher mind Indigo Friday
7. The Moon Linga Sharira Violet Monday

Such "blinds" are frequent and necessary in the occult teaching but they will be used less and less as humanity becomes more spiritually perceptive.

Seven great psychological Lives, qualified by seven types of life force, are manifesting through the medium of seven planets. Five other Lives express themselves through five planets, of which two remain to be discovered.

  • The Sun (Substituted for Vulcan)
  • Mercury
    The Moon (Substituted for Uranus)
  • Neptune
    The Earth
  • Undiscovered

This is the Exoteric division.

The Kingdoms of Nature and the Planets. In this cycle:

  1. The mineral kingdom - Pluto and Vulcan
  2. The vegetable kingdom - Venus and Jupiter
  3. The animal kingdom - The Moon and Mars
  4. The human kingdom - Mercury and Saturn

  6. Synthesizing these five - The Sun [651]
