The personality ray is always a sub-ray of the egoic ray. (E[II 358) The personality ray varies from life to life. (WM 111) The personality ray rotates in a specific order from life to life according to the Soul ray. (EPI 128) (See EPII 354 for the sequence of four incarnations for first ray souls after the Libran reversal ) The personality ray changes from life to life, and this determines the choice of zodiacal sign (Sun sign probably).

When the man is consciously conditioned by his soul ray he comes under the influence of one of the Seven Solar Systems, and one of the constellations via one of the seven sacred planets. At this stage birth months and mundane astrology become of less importance. (WM 438) Prior to the first initiation the rising sign indicates the goal for that particular life or else over a period of seven lives. (EA 30)
