Seven Forms of Light

Related to the Substance of 7 Planes

“It should be noted that there are seven forms of light, related to the
substance of the seven planes. These are stimulated and enhanced by the
twelve forms of light of the twelve Creative Hierarchies, related each of
them to one or other of the twelve signs of the zodiac. On this I may not
enlarge as it concerns the mysteries of the higher initiations. I simply make the
statement so that it may be appreciated by you as an occult fact to the proof of
which you may not yet have access. A paralleling statement would be that the
light of the seven centres in man (when enhanced by the light of the seven
planetary centres) and the five kingdoms in nature (7+5=12), plus the twelve
lights of the zodiac will produce a consummation of "light" effectiveness which will
make possible the expression of the whole. This, through the medium of
humanity. This is a basic statement which means little to you as yet but which
will—in the next century—form a seed thought or "key sound" for the next
revelation of the Ageless Wisdom.”

The above heading is a key quote from the larger quote above. In attempting to
keep a focus for this discussion I am confining myself to that which most directly
relates to this quote. The overall context of this quote is about the crosses and
must be seen from the previous part of the discussion by DK in EA562:

“The Light shines forth because the greater light and the lesser light approach
and then invoke each other. Their blended lights, though not yet one radiant sun,
are merging fast. These blended lights reveal the Lighted Way.” (EA562)

DK is talking about passing from the mutable (lesser light) to the fixed (greater
light) crosses here. The crosses are the sum totals of the light of the twelve
signs, augmented by the ‘light of the 12 Creative Hierarchies’.

Therefore, the aspirant moves from the “blended radiance” at the Pisces point of
the mutable cross, to the Taurus point of the fixed cross. Here is where “A new
light enters in” – the Seven Sisters of the Pleiades, through Taurus.

The Pleiades are the Mother or Third aspect, which has a direct correspondence to
Humanity as the third centre, generically known as “Light”, in the trinity of Love
(Hierarchy) and Power (Shamballa).

Uniquely at this time a large part of Humanity are poised to take the First
Initiation, ruled over by Leo. It corresponds to the light of the Christ anchored
within the cave of the Heart and has much to do with a deeper manasic
development within the broader light of the third aspect.

Of course, Leo’s polar opposite Aquarius, into which we are moving upon the
larger wheel, has its first decanate ruled by Saturn, offering opportunity for
humanity to move through this first initiatory door. Saturn is ruler of the Third
Ray and has a correspondence to the light of the Pleiades.

The fact that this Initiation is occurring en masse, and that other higher initiations
are going on, means that the centre we call Humanity is steadily increasing in
radiance. Hence the substance of the light upon the 7 planes is transforming and
this is what DK may mean when he says: “…a consummation of light
effectiveness which will make possible the expression of the whole. This through
the medium of humanity.” (EA563)

The quotes from TCF152-3 and TCF1183-4 are beautifully linked and I wonder
are the cause of manifestation of the crosses:

“1. Separation is produced by rotary movement. By means of this action, all


the spheres became differentiated, and form, as we know, the following atomic
units:

a. The solar system, recognised as a cosmic atom, all the so-called atoms
within its periphery being regarded as molecular.

b. The seven planes, regarded as seven vast spheres, rotating latitudinally


within the solar periphery.

c. The seven rays, regarded as the seven veiling forms of the Spirits,
themselves spheroidal bands of colour, rotating longitudinally, and forming
(in connection with the seven planes) a vast interlacing network. These two sets
of spheres (planes and rays) form the totality of the solar system, and produce its
form spheroidal.

…Each ray of light…is … a sphere of matter of the utmost tenuity, rotating in a


direction opposite to that of the planes. These rays produce by their mutual
interaction a radiatory effect upon each other….

a. The planes rotate from east to west.

b. The rays rotate from north to south.

…By means of this very interaction, the work of the four Maharajahs or Lords of
Karma, is made possible; the quaternary and all sumtotals of four can be
seen as one of the basic combinations of matter, produced by the dual
revolutions of planes and rays. (TCF152-3)

“The streams of energy [GB,S,P] which pour forth through the medium of the
Sun from the egoic lotus and which are in reality "logoic Soul energy" attract
to them that which is akin to them in vibration. This may sound rather like the
statement of a platitude, but is susceptible of really deep significance to the
student, being accountable for all systemic phenomena. These streams pass in
different directions, and in the knowledge of occult direction comes
knowledge of the various hierarchies of being, and the secret of the esoteric
symbols.

The main stream of energy enters at the top depression in the solar sphere and
passes through the entire ring-pass-not, bisecting it into two halves.

With this stream enters that group of active lives whom we call the "Lords of
Karma." They preside over the attractive forces, and distribute them justly.
They enter, pass to the centre of the sphere and there (if I may so express it)
locate, and set up the "Holy Temple of Divine Justice," sending out to the four
quarters of the circle the four Maharajahs, their representatives. So is the
equal armed Cross formed—and all the wheels of energy set in motion.
This is conditioned by the karmic seeds of an earlier system, and only that
substance is utilised by the Logos, and only those lives come into manifestation
who have set up a mutual attraction.

These five streams of living energy (the one and the four) are the basis of the
onward march of all things; these are sometimes esoterically called "the
forward moving Lives." They embody the Will of the Logos. It is the note they
sound and the attractive pull which they initiate which bring into contact with the
solar sphere a group of existences whose mode of activity is spiral and not
forward.

These groups are seven in number and pass into manifestation through what
is for them a great door of Initiation. In some of the occult books, these seven
groups are spoken of as the "seven cosmic Initiates Who have passed within
the Heart, and there remain until the test is passed." These are the seven
Hierarchies of Beings, the seven Dhyan Chohans. They spiral into
manifestation, cutting across the fourfold cross, and touching the cruciform
stream of energy in certain places. The places where the streams of love
energy cross the streams of will and karmic energy are mystically called the
"Caves of dual light" and when a reincarnating or liberated jiva enters one of
these Caves in the course of his pilgrimage, he takes an initiation, and passes on
to a higher turn of the spiral.

Another stream of energy follows a different route, which is a little difficult


to make clear. This particular set of active lives enter the heart shaped
depression, pass around the edge of the ring-pass-not to the lowest part of the
solar sphere and then mount upwards, coming into opposition therefore with
the stream of downpouring energy. This stream of force is called "lunar"
force for lack of a better term. They form the body of the raja Lord of each of the
planes, and are governed by the Law of Economy.

All these streams of energy form geometrical designs of great beauty to the
eye of the initiated seer. We have the transverse and bisecting lines, the
seven lines of force which form the planes, and the seven spiralling lines,
thus forming lines of systemic latitude and longitude, and their interplay
and interaction produce a whole of wondrous beauty and design. When these are
visualised in colour, and seen in their true radiance, it will be realised that the
point of attainment of our solar Logos is very high, for the beauty of the logoic
Soul is expressed by that which is seen.” (TCF1183-4)

If we take some key sections from these two quotes and link them up, more light
may be shed:

“…By means of this very interaction, the work of the four Maharajahs or Lords
of Karma, is made possible; the quaternary and all sumtotals of four can be
seen as one of the basic combinations of matter, produced by the dual
revolutions of planes and rays. (TCF152-3)

So is the equal armed Cross formed—and all the wheels of energy set in
motion. (1183)

They spiral into manifestation, cutting across the fourfold cross, and touching
the cruciform stream of energy in certain places. The places where the
streams of love energy cross the streams of will and karmic energy are
mystically called the "Caves of dual light" and when a reincarnating or
liberated jiva enters one of these Caves in the course of his pilgrimage, he takes
an initiation, and passes on to a higher turn of the spiral. (1184)

All these streams of energy form geometrical designs of great beauty to the
eye of the initiated seer. We have the transverse and bisecting lines, the
seven lines of force which form the planes, and the seven spiralling lines,
thus forming lines of systemic latitude and longitude, and their interplay
and interaction produce a whole of wondrous beauty and design. (1184)

I am wondering if the following passage refers to the three crosses:

“The places where the streams of love [2] energy cross the streams of will
[1] and karmic energy are mystically called the "Caves of dual light" and when
a reincarnating or liberated jiva enters one of these Caves in the course of his
pilgrimage, he takes an initiation, and passes on to a higher turn of the spiral.

Another stream of energy follows a different route, which is a little difficult to


make clear. This particular set of active lives enter the heart shaped depression,
pass around the edge of the ring-pass-not to the lowest part of the solar sphere
and then mount upwards, coming into opposition therefore with the stream of
downpouring energy. This stream of force is called "lunar" force [3] for lack
of a better term. They form the body of the raja Lord of each of the planes, and
are governed by the Law of Economy.”

So I wonder how closely these three streams of will, love and ‘lunar’ forces,
correspond to the crosses, or indeed help make them up. Also, is the above
‘karmic energy’ a fourth stream, or a general pervasive influence?

Burma and Aung Sun Suu Kyi

Phillip Lindsay © 2002

Democracy leader Aung Sun Suu Kyi has struggled against Burma’s ruling military
for many years, and the synastry between these two entities is extraordinary.

One of Suu Kyi’s major horoscope challenges is Moon in Libra square to Saturn in
Cancer, somewhat of a mutual reception, making it even more potent. It is all
about breaking though her oppressors and jailors (Saturn in Cancer) in the name
of justice and liberty (Moon in Libra).

Suu Kyi’s Saturn in Cancer is exactly opposite Burma’s Capricorn Sun, the stern
and disciplinarian opposition at whose hands the Burmese people have suffered.
Burma’s Sun is exactly square Neptune in Libra, which can give great insecurity
and illusions around issues of identity. Burma’s Neptune also falls exactly on Kyi’s
Moon. Or, another way to view it is that Suu Kyi’s Moon square Saturn is playing
itself out in a T-square with Burma’s Sun square Neptune.

Burma’s Sun 12 Cap 27 Square to Burma’s Neptune 12 Lib 57


Suu Kyi’s Saturn 12 Can 04 Square to Suu Kyi’s Moon 12 Lib 37

Like Burma, Suu Kyi also has Sun square Neptune (from Gemini to early Libra),
reflecting her democratic ideals, contrasting against Burma’s Sun square Neptune
as deceptive control and manipulation. Hence she finds her own challenges
mirrored within the greater body (Burma) in which she finds herself.

Kyi has been under house arrest for 19 months and in detention on and off for 12
years, which expresses some of the qualities of Saturn in Cancer:

“… in this sign Saturn is in the home of its detriment and thus produces those
difficult conditions and situations which will lead to the needed struggle. This
makes Cancer a place of symbolic imprisonment … provides those conditions of
suffering which the soul has willingly undertaken when…the soul chose the path
of earth life with all its consequent sacrifices and pains, in order to salvage the
lives with which it had an affinity.” [1]

It is very clear that this great soul has made a major sacrifice to liberate her
nation from oppression. Suu Kyi’s rising sign is also Cancer, which is the rising
sign of Yasser Arafat, and the Sun signs of Nelson Mandela and the Dalai Lama.
Cancer in this sense is the homeland, and these individuals have acted in the
mid-wifing process, bringing their nations into being. Suu Kyi is definitely the
mother of democracy for Burma, in its prolonged gestation, giving way to now
possible birth pangs.

Other imprisoning significators in Suu Kyi’s chart are Sun and Uranus in the 12th
house of bondage and captivity. Her release from house arrest on May 5, 2002
was reflected in some amazing transits and progressions. Very striking was the
exact conjunction of transiting Saturn and Mars to her natal Uranus in the 12th ,
planet of revolution and liberation. Natal Uranus makes a natal trine to her Libran
Moon, a most potent force in her chart.

Equally impressive though was Jupiter’s almost exact transit to natal Saturn in
Cancer. Hence both significators of her imprisonment were being activated on the
day of her release.

Natal Planet Transiting Planet Progressed Planet


Saturn 12 Can 04 Jupiter 11 Can 37 Venus 11 Can 48
Uranus 14 Gem 06 Saturn/Mars 14 Gem 00/33 Mars 15 Gem 03

Hence natal Moon in Libra was being aspected by all transits, as natally it trines
Uranus and squares Saturn. Her Moon at 12 Libra 37 was also being aspected by
Burma’s progressed Moon at 12 Libra 39, which was of course, conjunct Burma’s
Neptune. The key factors in the synastry between these two entities were being
triggered:

Burma Neptune 12 Lib 57 SP Moon 12 Lib 39


Suu Kyi Moon 12 Lib 37

Moon is the ruler of Suu Kyi’s Cancer rising – her soul potential to unfold in this
lifetime, hence its important position in Libra. Natally it is conjunct Neptune,
which happens to be the soul ruler of Cancer, and is deeply concerned with the
qualities of love and compassion. When the soul and personality rulers of a chart
are conjunct, there is a high potential for successfully fulfilling the purposes of
incarnation.

It is still too early to say yet whether the devious manipulativeness of the military
junta has had much of a part to play in recent events. After all, the unredeemed
personality expression of Sun square Neptune still has a way to go. However, this
could also be a major sign of hope in the ongoing struggle for democracy. Burma
also has a Libra Moon at 17 Lib 56, which means that its progressed Moon will
take another 5 or 6 months to reach its natal position in the 27 year cycle.
Perhaps this will be a time to see more progress.
