Alcyone

The Pleiades & Alcyone

Aquarius - Alcyone - Humanity

 

Aquarius, Alcyone and Humanity constitute a most interesting triangle of force. Alcyone is one of the seven Pleiades and is called the "star of the Individual" and sometimes the "star of intelligence." It was potently active during the previous solar system wherein the Third Person of the Trinity was peculiarly omnipotent and active, just as today the cosmic Christ, the Second Person of the Trinity, is peculiarly active in this solar system. The energies coming from Alcyone impregnated the substance of the universe with the quality of mind. As a consequence of this most ancient activity, the same force was present at the time of individualisation in this solar system, for it is in this system, and primarily upon our planet, the Earth, that the major results of that early activity have made themselves felt. Two of our planets, the Earth (non-sacred) and Uranus (sacred), are directly the product of this third ray activity. This is of great importance to remember. We would also ask you to link this thought with the teaching that through the divine centre of intelligent activity which we call humanity, the fourth kingdom in nature will eventually act as the mediating principle to all the three lower kingdoms. Humanity is the divine Messenger to the world of form; it is essentially Mercury, bringing light and life to other divine manifestations and of this all divine world Saviours are the eternal symbols.

 

This coming process of planetary service through the third divine centre is only truly effective when Aquarius rules and when our sun is passing through that sign of the zodiac. Hence the immense importance of the next 2000 years. Therefore, only when a man is a world server and becoming group conscious can this desired objective of manifestation begin to demonstrate. It is beginning to happen today for the first time in planetary history. It is one of the first fruits of initiation and only in the next root race to our present Aryan race will we begin really to understand the significance of the process and the true nature of the energies to be released through the medium of humanity upon the planet. It is for this reason that Jupiter and Uranus (expressions of the second and the seventh rays) are the exoteric and esoteric rulers of Aquarius.

 

You have, therefore, the following line of force to study:

 

1. Alcyone - in the Pleiades, the mothers of the seven aspects of form life and the "wives of the seven Rishis of the Great Bear." They are connected with the Mother aspect which nurtures the infant Christ.

 

2. Aquarius - the World Server, the transmitter of energy which evokes magnetic response.

 

3. Jupiter and Uranus - planets of beneficent consummation. The second ray of love and the seventh ray which fuses spirit and matter "to the ultimate glory" of the solar Logos are in the fullest eventual cooperation.

 

4. Humanity - the focal point for all these energies and the divine distributor of them to individual man and later to the lower three kingdoms in nature.

 

Thus you see, that from a generalisation the exterior constellations (exterior to the zodiac and the solar system itself) we are becoming more specific, showing how certain stars in these constellations are definitely related by direct lines of energy to our planet; these lines of force usually reach us via one of the zodiacal signs and - in rare cases - directly to a planet. The latter case is, however, exceedingly rare. We have also brought into relation to our solar system another constellation, called the Little Bear which is a reflection of or a corollary to the major energies of its greater prototype, Ursa Major, the Great Bear. These facts contain a great mystery connected with the inter-relation of Ursa Major, Ursa Minor and the Pleiades; they constitute one of the greatest and more important of the triplicities to be found in the heavens as far as we have astronomically ascertained the nature of our immediate universe. This is a perfectly unimportant piece of information as far as you are concerned and is only of significance to initiates of the fourth degree. It serves, nevertheless, to add its evidence to the essential integrity and interlocking dependencies of the universe.

The Life of the Soul 

 

We would reiterate again the fact that the new astrology will be occupied with the charting of the life of the soul. The 12 constellations, as they play their part in the life of the disciple through the medium of their distributing agents, the ruling esoteric planets, will gradually transform the exoteric form of the chart of the individual. This will be due to the focussing of the various energies in man, consciously and through intent, and will not concern his negative reaction to the conditioning energies.

 

We would like here to call your attention to an interesting point which has a definite bearing upon the power of the individual to grasp the new astrology and to comprehend the Science of Triangles. The astrological symbols for Virgo and Scorpio are triple in nature - the only two which are. 

 

When the disciple grasps the meaning behind this triplicity, he will be ready to grasp the significance of this abstruse science and to work with the new astrology. 

 

Virgo and Scorpio are two signs connected with the growth of the Christ consciousness; they mark critical points in the soul's experience - points of integration wherein the soul is consciously at-one-ing itself with the form and at the same time with spirit. We said the soul's experience, not the experience of the man upon the physical plane. When the experience undergone in Virgo is consummated in Pisces and the tests of Scorpio have led to illumination in Taurus, then the effect of these four energies (Virgo, Pisces, Scorpio, Taurus) will be to make man the true triangle, expressing the three divine aspects or energies as they come from the three major conditioning constellations: the Great Bear, the Pleiades and Sirius.

 

We can give the indications of the various triangles as they are discovered to be related in time and space. 

 

Under the will of Deity and the unalterable energy at the heart of the manifested zodiac, they produce the changes in consciousness which make man divine at the close of the world cycle. 

 

But the theme is too vast and:  

 

All we seek to do here is to point the way towards a new science and towards those esoteric combinations of energies which will, when recognised, enable humanity to make more rapid progress, fuse and blend the energies of the three planetary centres and transform our Earth (through the agency of human thought, reacting to zodiacal influences) into a sacred planet. 

 

It is, therefore, the influence and combination of energies as they affect the aspirants and disciples of the world which must suffice for any increased understanding; with these we dealt with in the Science of Astrology.

 

Certain of the forces with which we are dealing govern humanity in a peculiar manner and the effect of their influence is to bring about the at-one-ing of the three planetary centres (Shamballa, Hierarchy and Humanity).

 

Four constellations will make humanity divine

 

Finally there are four constellations, as you know, which convey the required energies which will make humanity divine. They are Aries, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius. We need not enter into an analysis of them as this is covered when you study each of them separately. We would, however, like to point out that each of these constellations is closely connected, as a transmitter of energy, with certain stars, lying outside our zodiac altogether, thus connecting our tiny planet with certain great focal points of energy.

 

Aries, the initiator of impulses (either the impulse to incarnate or the impulse to return to the originating source) is closely in touch with one of the stars in the Great Bear to which we give the name "Pointer" in common parlance. 

 

This Pointer is a "major star of direction" because through it (in this world cycle) flows the will to unify and to bring about synthesis. 

 

This is the force which brings about: 

  • the fusion or integration of the personality,
  • the at-one-ment of personality and soul,
  • the unification of humanity or the Great Approach of the Hierarchy to Humanity. 

 

Integration of the Earth into a body of sacred planets

 

It will produce also the integration of our Earth into the body of the "sacred planets" and the consequent establishing of a triangle of force composed of the Pointer, Aries and our Earth. This triangular relationship will have a potent effect upon the solar system as well as upon the planet itself and is also one of the factors producing the shift in the Earth's axis. Related to this triangle is a secondary one within our sun's orbit, composed of Vulcan, Pluto and the Earth. In the Archives of the Great Lodge this is referred to symbolically as the drawning shown on this page.

 

This is one of the most interesting and informing astrological symbols we have given you and indicates a most momentous relationship. You have here two major and three minor energies brought into close relation; this is analogous to the two major rays and the three minor rays which condition a human being in manifestation. These are the five energies which concern the informing life of our planet. They produce, in humanity, conscious evolution, direction and the founding of Shamballa upon the Earth. They are the five energies connected with the will-to-be, but from the consciousness angle and not the material expression of manifestation. Their activity and united influence in the realm of consciousness produced the appearance of another triangle: Leo, Polaris and another of the Pointers and: 

 

These two groups form an interlocking directorate, potently effective in the evolution of consciousness.

 

A perfect rhythm responding to energies from Alcyone

 

You have, therefore, through these related triangles, the appearance of Shamballa and Humanity - the two poles of divine expression - will and activity.

 

We come now to another triangle, the activity of which produces the manifestation of Hierarchy - the intermediary between Shamballa and Humanity: Scorpio, Sirius and Mars. These, in relation to our Earth, produce the four streams of energy (initiating and transmitting) which lead humanity towards discipleship and initiation.

 

When the work of all these triangles has been concluded, humanity (and in a mysterious sense our Earth) will be functioning in perfect rhythm and will respond to the energies pouring in from Alcyone.
