Secondarily, (assuredly, but not exclusively) Capricorn transmits R3 and R5 through Saturn and Venus—its two planetary rulers on three levels—exoteric, esoteric and hierarchical. 7. Secondarily, (assuredly, but not exclusively) Aquarius transmits R7, R2 and R4 (with R1, R6, and R7), through Uranus, Jupiter and the Moon, veiling Vulcan, Neptune and Uranus—all these are its planetary rulers on three levels—exoteric, esoteric and hierarchical. 8. Color: green 8. Color: turquoise 9. Creative Hierarchy number V (manifested) and X of 12. Human Personality; the Crocodiles; Makara the Mystery 9. Creative Hierarchy number XII (manifested) and XII of the twelve. Elemental Lives; the Baskets of Nourishment; the Blinded Lives 10. Associated with the first five initiations: the soul/Self-revealing, soul-law-imposing, Christ-birthing first; the emotion-controlling, ‘un-capsized’, ‘water-crossing’ second; the soul-illumined, personality-transfiguring, three-aspect-synthesizing third; the isolation-inducing, world-renouncing fourth; and the supernally-lighted, mountain-peak-revelatory fifth. Saturn (ruling Capricorn) does not follow a man onto the Cardinal Cross. 10. Association with refuse-flushing, fire-cleansing, fellowship-inducing second initiation; the ego-negating, light-pervading, soul-inspiring third initiation; the personality-renouncing, life-energizing fourth initiation; and, conceivably, with the abundant life of the beneficently organizing fifth degree. 11. Capricorn can be reasonably associated with the clear-seeing, forcefully-penetrating, powerfully directing ajna and brow centers, and the ‘dominating’, all-controlling crown center. Capricorn must be connected to the magically materializing throat and sacral centres via the third and seventh rays (resonant to both centers). The humility-inducing centers at the knees are also indicated. Also associated with Capricorn are the central “jewels” in all the chakras. 11. Aquarius can be reasonably associated with the entire abundantly-radiating, synthetic crown center, and the united radiation of the chakra centers as a whole. When the ajna center responds to the universal mind, the envisioning of the archetypally-destined future appears. Aquarius transmits the third ray, and thus relates to the throat center (through ruling Saturn, Uranus and Vulcan as well). Aquarius, is esoterically ruled by Jupiter, the planet controlling the group-inclusive heart center. The evolving Aquarian is subject to many emotional highs and lows, thus connecting Aquarius to the solar plexus center. (EA 141-142) Also, through Uranus, with the form-creating sacral center which generates “waters of life” in a more material sense. As well, seventh-ray Uranus is numerically related to the seventh or basal center, bringing Aquarius into the relation. 12. The zodiacal signs influence the Monad of every human being (EA 411, 637, TCF 1191); the influence from Capricorn causes the Monad (even in immersion) to be guided by Shamballic and Logoic Law. There are lines which the Monad may not cross as it ‘super-vises’ its own Self-extension. It must leave its fragment ‘free within limits’; free-will (of a relative kind) must not be violated. The initiatory power, flowing through Monad from Capricorn, endows the Monad-in-extension with the power to face every obstacle and re-ascend to its source. This re-ascent is initiation. 12. The zodiacal signs influence the Monad of every human being (EA 411, 637, TCF 1191); the influence from Aquarius governs the large monadic groups or ‘monadic ashrams’, which aggregations exist upon the monadic plane. The universal awareness of the Monad is inspired and enhanced by the Aquarian energy. The Monad is a ‘center of synthesis’ and a ‘center within synthesis’. The Aquarian energy stimulates the universality and synthetic awareness of the Monad. 13. Within the Triad—Capricorn is most associated with atma (first triadal aspect) and higher manas (third triadal aspect). Capricorn transmits the first ray which relates it to the will and law emanating from the atmic plane. Capricorn transmits the third ray, as well, which relates it not only to higher manas but, again, to atma, for the atmic plane is the third systemic plane, and is a plane of both law/will and mind—the atmic mind—God’s mind as directly expressive of God’s will/law. Capricorn is less related to buddhi, though it is the sign admitting (via hierarchical Venus) into the buddhic dimension known as Hierarchy. 13. Within the Triad—Aquarius is related principally to higher manas and to atma as both of them reflect, to differing degrees, the Universal Mind (EA 241, 322, 495). Aquarius transmits the third ray constellationally (EA 138), and has rulers or sub-rulers which do the same. Aquarius “expresses the universal consciousness of the Great Bear” linking it to atma, in yet another way. The energy of Aquarius, as well, stimulates and blends with buddhi, principally by inducing loving group-cohesion. The Tibetan speaks of “universal love of the truly developed Aquarian.” (EA 136) This is an expression of buddhi. 14. In relation to the Solar Angel, and the soul-consciousness (and causal body) through which it expresses—Capricorn can be understood as the will of the Solar Angel to master its personality, through total soul-infusion leading to transfiguration and subsequent crucifixion. Karmic confrontation with residual darkness is enforced from ‘above’, and the power to transcend matter bestowed. The will aspect of the Solar Angel is strongly asserted, leaving the responsive personality no choice but elevation. (cf. EP II 174) 14. In relation to the Solar Angel, and the soul-consciousness (and causal body) through which it expresses—Aquarius represents the dowering of the personality with all super-human, transcendental gifts which the Solar Angel may safely bestow. Aquarius represents the patient service of the Solar Angel to its long-developing personality, and the consequent elevation of the human soul from the human to the super-human state of the fifth kingdom—the Kingdom of Souls. Aquarius rules the generous distribution of beneficent Solar-Angelic radiation to (and through) its personality 15. Within the Personality—Capricorn can be identified with the concretizing, regulatory and disciplining processes of the lower mental nature; with processes which focus, control and deepen the astral nature; with organizational and co-ordinative processes within the etheric vehicle; and the with maintenance and survival of the dense physical vehicle—of which Capricorn represents the density. (The vehicular focus and its degree of prominence, depends upon the stage of evolutionary development.) 15. Within the Personality—Aquarius can be identified with the power to vitalize, unify and synthesize thought, which eventually develops within the lower mental nature; with the cleansing, drying, and eventual distributive radiation of the love-responsive astral nature; with the electric vitalization of the etheric nature; and, in general, with the nervous animation of the dense physical form. Aquarius “is eventually connected with the physical permanent atom.” (EA 302) (The vehicular focus and its degree of prominence, depends upon the stage of evolutionary development.) 16.

Wider Relationships: Cosmic and Systemic
Capricorn In Comparison With Aquarius 1. Expressive primarily of the first and third aspects of divinity. “CAPRICORN. This is the constellation by means of which comes the conquering will which releases from form life and initiates the man into the kingdom wherein the will aspect (not the soul aspect) of divinity expresses itself.” (EA 620) Capricorn is the major transmitter of the seventh ray which is related to the first aspect. “The seventh ray is, in the last analysis, the focussed differentiated energy of Ray One as it expresses the will of the first aspect of divinity on earth…” (EA 138) “the third and fifth rays work pre-eminently through this sign, embodying the third major aspect of divinity, active intelligence plus that of its subsidiary power, the fifth Ray of Mind.” (EA 164) 1. Expressive, principally, of the third divine aspect “…the third ray expresses itself powerfully through this sign” (EA 138)—strongly connected, however, with both the first and second aspects. “At this time and in a peculiar manner, the initiate-consciousness sees the Hierarchy as primarily energised by life, and by the energy of Aquarius, carrying a hitherto unknown aspect of the life energy of deity.” (R&I 229) Aquarius rules Hierarchy. “…our Hierarchy [is] (an expression of the second aspect of divinity)…” (EA197) 2. Related cosmically to the Pleiades. “…from these three (The Pleiades, Capricorn, Mercury. A.A.B.) Man takes a nature which is his today. Son of the Mother, born from the tomb and showing after birth the light which he has taken from them all.” (EA 433, also 427-428) Capricorn is necessarily related to the Great Bear because, like Aries, and Leo, it transmits the first ray. (cf. EA 417) Capricorn, the “great sign of initiation” (EA 173) is almost certainly related to Sirius, “the great star of initiation.” (EA 197) Venus completes a triangle. 2. Strong cosmic association with the Pole Star, Alcyone, also an invisible constellation, and the Great Bear: “The influence which emanates from the Pole Star and which is such a potent factor in our solar system reaches our planet via the sign Aquarius.” (TCF 1263) “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’.” (EA 200) “The source of energy to which they respond may be regarded as the Pole Star. It should nevertheless be pointed out that this star serves only as a blind for a constellation which lies behind,—a constellation which exists only in etheric matter. It is consequently ignored by astronomers, though its influence is exceedingly potent within our system.” (TCF 1262) Also, “Aquarius—expresses the universal consciousness of the Great Bear.” (EA 349) 3. Three Constellations Connected with Capricorn: a) Sagitta—the Arrow; b) Aquila—the Eagle; c) Delphinus—the Dolphin (LOH 175-176) 3. Three Constellations Connected with Aquarius: a) Pisces Australes—the Southern Fish; b) Pegasus—the Winged Horse; c) Cygnus—The Swan (LOH 189-190)
Relationships Between Three Levels of Planetary Rulers,
and Planets in Exaltation, Fall and Detriment
Capricorn In Comparison With Aquarius 1. Saturn is the exoteric and esoteric ruler of Capricorn. 1. Saturn is considered by many to be a ruler of Aquarius. “Some astrologers assign Saturn as one of the rulers. Alan Leo does so, but I would point out that in this case he is dealing entirely with the progress of the ordinary man upon the wheel of life, and the Saturn which he senses as ruling Aquarius is the Saturnian influence of Capricorn, in which sign Saturn governs in two fields.” (EA 138-138) 2. Jupiter falls in Capricorn. 2. Jupiter is the esoteric ruler of Aquarius. 3. The Moon is in detriment in Capricorn. 3. The Moon is the hierarchical ruler of Aquarius. 4. Neptune falls in Capricorn 4. Neptune is a veiled hierarchical ruler of Aquarius. 5. The Sun (as the soul/spirit) is especially empowered on the mountain top of Capricorn. 5. The Sun is dis-empowered (through detriment) in Aquarius.
Subtle Relationships Between Rays,
Zodiacal and Planetary Energies
Capricorn In Comparison With Aquarius 1. Capricorn transmits the first ray, constellationally. 1. Aquarius, itself, may have implicate first ray associations. “Aquarius—expresses the universal consciousness of the Great Bear” (EA 349) The Great Bear (as a whole) transmits the first ray. (cf. TCF 146). Aquarius, is the tenth sign on the reversed wheel, numbering by polarities (Aries-Libra, Taurus-Scorpio, etc.) and thus has numerical resonance with the first ray. Uranus, the exoteric ruler, transmits the first ray monadically. (EPI 421) Saturn, a possible alternative ruler in Aquarius, transmits the first ray probably in its personality, but perhaps its soul. (EA 450) Moon-veiled Vulcan and Uranus both transmit the first ray—the first as the monadic ray, the second, probably, as the soul ray. 2. Capricorn transmits the third ray, constellationally. In addition, Capricorn is the third sign of the zodiac on the clockwise wheel, beginning number with Pisces. This numerical fact reinforces the relationship of Capricorn to the third ray. 2. “The third ray expresses itself powerfully through” Aquarius constellationally. (EA 138). Aquarius is also the third sign of the zodiac on the clock-wise wheel, therefore having numerical affinity with the third ray. Uranus transmits the third ray (probably through its personality) as does Saturn (considered an alternative ruler in this sign) through its Monad, and probably, also, its soul. The Moon-veiled Uranus also transmits the third ray. 3. Capricorn transmits the seventh ray, constellationally. 3. Uranus transmits the seventh ray. Saturn has strong seventh ray associations. Jupiter (esoteric ruler) transmits the seventh ray.
4. Capricorn may, in some subtle matter, transmits the fifth ray (independently of its hierarchial ruler Venus). Ray 5.—Concrete Knowledge or Science, under the influence of Capricorn, focussed through Venus, which will enable the man to take initiation.” (EA 357) Also, “Capricorn is an earth sign and because the third and fifth rays work pre-eminently through this sign, embodying the third major aspect of divinity, active intelligence plus that of its subsidiary power, the fifth Ray of Mind. These pour through Capricorn to Saturn and to Venus and so reach our planet, the Earth.” (EA 164) Note the word, “through.”
4. Aquarius transmits the fifth ray constellationally. Uranus, the exoteric ruler, (and a veiled hierarchial rulers) can stand for “exoteric science” (EP 149) and, hence, has fifth ray associations. Saturn, a possible alternative ruler, is associated with the concrete mind and, hence, with the fifth principle. Vulcan, (a veiled hierarchical ruler) relates to the concretion and physical precipitation, as does the fifth ray. 5. Capricorn is the tenth sign on the reversed wheel, hence numerologically associated with the number one and, by numerical affinity, with the first ray. 5. See #1 above. 6. Capricorn is the fourth sign of the zodiac on the clock-wise wheel—hence, resonant with the fourth ray (especially through its rulership over ‘for-m’ and establishment). 6. The Moon (hierarchical ruler) is the veiling transmitter of the fourth ray. Moon-veiled Vulcan is closely related to the fourth ray, the fourth kingdom, and the fourth initiation. Neptune ( a Moon-veiled hierarchical ruler) is associated with the fourth ray through its relationship to buddhi, and to the fourth , or buddhic, plane. 7. Saturn is the exoteric and hierarchical ruler of Capricorn and transmits the third ray monadically (EPI 421), and, probably, through its soul. 7. See #2 above. 8. Saturn, the exoteric and esoteric ruler, is a strong transmitter of the first ray. (EA 450, 621). 8. See #1 above. 9. Saturn has strong seventh ray associations through that fact that it is the “logoic physical permanent atom” in relation to the cosmic physical plane (TCF 406), hence strongly involved in the manifestation of the cosmic physical plane. 9. See #3 above. 10. Saturn is associated with the concrete mind (concretion pertains to the fifth ray). 10. See #4 above. 11. Venus, the hierarchical ruler of Capricorn, transmits the fifth ray. 11. See #4 above. 12. Venus, the hierarchial ruler of Capricorn, is “pure love-wisdom”, and hence, transmits the second ray. (EA 281) 12. Aquarius is the eleventh sign on the reversed wheel. Since eleven sums to two, Aquarius has numerical affinity with the second ray. Jupiter, the esoteric ruler of Aquarius, transmits the second ray. Neptune, a Moon-veiled hierarchical ruler, transmits the second ray monadically. Vulcan (a Moon-veiled hierarchical ruler) is associated with the “heart of the Sun” (EA ), and Uranus (exoteric ruler) is placed in a line of second ray transmission from Sirius, and participates in the three lower vehicles (probably as the mental body) of a great second ray Entity (EPII 99) 13. Venus, the hierarchical ruler of Capricorn, transmits the sixth ray, probably monadically. 13. Neptune (a Moon-veiled hierarchical ruler) transmits the sixth ray. Enthusiastic Jupiter has a probable connection to the sixth ray. 14. Venus, the hierarchical ruler of Capricorn, may have some higher fourth ray associations—harmony and beauty. 14. See #6 above. 15. Mars (exalted in Capricorn) transmits the sixth ray 15. See #6 above. 16. Mars, exalted in Capricorn, teaches “those whose work lies along the lines of the destroyer”, hence must transmit the first ray. (TCF 1179) 16. See #1 above. 17. Mars (exalted) participates in the expression of the third ray through a great third ray Entity. 17. See #2 above. 18. Mars (exalted in Capricorn) is closely related to the fifth ray through science, as well as through its rulership of the five senses.” Thirdly, Mars governs the senses which are five in number. These senses are the basis of all human knowledge where that which is tangible and objective is concerned or inferred. Mars, therefore, rules science and hence the reason in this present era for the fundamental but not permanent [Page 216] materiality of science—” (EA 215-216) 18. See #4 above. 19. Mars (exalted in Capricorn) is a major planet of conflict, so it is difficult not to think that Mars has some strong fourth ray association—perhaps within its personality vehicles. “The theme of that ray is "Harmony through Conflict" and it is the lower aspect of the ray energy, producing conflict which has hitherto controlled, and is climaxing now through the impetus of the new incoming Shamballa force.” (EA 328) 19.

The Life of the Christ from an Aquarian Perspective: “The expression of this influence has been beautifully given to us in the story of the Last Supper. Christ sent His disciples into the city to find the man ‘bearing a pitcher of water’ upon his shoulder. This is the symbol of the sign Aquarius—the sign in which the universality of the water of life will become a factor in human consciousness; then we shall indeed all sit down eventually to the communion of bread and wine.

Similarities and Points of Cooperation
Between the Zodiacal Influences
A. Both of these signs are strongly connected with the Spiritual Hierarchy. True entrance into the Hierarchy is achieved through Capricorn. But Hierarchy as a creative body, a body distributing love and light comes very much under the influence of Aquarius.
So Hierarchy as a power structure under the supervision of Sanat Kumara is regulated by Capricorn, but as a bestower of benevolence, it comes under Aquarius.
B. Both of these signs are closely associated with the seventh Ray - Capricorn because it largely distributes the seventh Ray and Aquarius through its association with Uranus. Therefore, they are active in the manifestation of the new world.
Capricorn manifests the best and the highest quality of the old world and Aquarius attempts to materialize the new. Capricorn in this respect represents the best that orthodoxy has to offer and Aquarius, the best that can be precipitated from alignment with super-consciousness.
C. So these are clearly signs of manifestation, signs by means of which the kingdom of heaven, represented as well by Capricorn as the Spiritual Hierarchy does come to earth. Both signs have a close relation as well with the third Ray.
We remember that the third Ray is distributed through Capricorn and Aquarius is the third sign counting in clockwise order from Aries.
Also, Saturn and Uranus much associated with Aquarius, distribute the third Ray. So there is much of practical intelligence in these two signs and relation to the divine mind, also to time in general.
And in Aquarius the great laws of cycles are studied and understood coming obviously under the aegis of time. Whenever the third Ray and the seventh Ray appear together, the factor of time and cycles is very important and many fine astrologers who have to have a mastery of time and cycles are found born with Capricorn or Aquarius prominent. Especially is this so of predictive astrologers and those who work with the idea of precipitation.
D. In another sense, both signs are united by their impersonality. There is a certain coolness and objectivity and detachment perhaps coming from the Saturn influence present in both signs although there is warmth and friendliness present in Aquarius. Nevertheless, Aquarians are known for their coolness and their detachment and Capricornians at times for their coldness.
Again, these two signs can be seen serving as a unit, for Capricorn represents the skeletal structure which is the stability of any system and Aquarius, the circulatory system either through blood vessels or nerves which distribute the life to the entire system held in place by Capricorn.
E. Both signs as well have a powerfully mental rather than emotional attitude. The concrete mind with its thoughtform making power is connected with the third, fifth and seventh Rays.
Thought is one of the beginning stages of the manifestation process and the power to concretize thought is well pronounced in both signs.
There is also a relation to the third aspect of divinity and to the symbol of that third aspect, money. Capricorn is directly associated with the law of economy and with the lawful control of money in the world.
The principally financial rays, three and seven, are powerful through Capricorn, but Aquarius rules the sharing of bread and interestingly bread is a symbol in common parlance of the third aspect of divinity. And so the resources of society will be properly distributed under Aquarius and finances will be allocated the better to make a new world. So there is a strong financial cooperation between these two signs, between the practical men of Capricorn and the visionaries of Aquarius.
F. Generally, the unite in the concept of synthesis, seeing all things as one simultaneously and seeing the relations as they are seen from the divine mind. Together, they represent a super human point of view and indeed the last three signs Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces can be seen as signs of synthesis and can properly be given rulership over the three synthesis petals of the egoic lotus.
So the big picture begins to dawn and man's rightful place within it. In some ways, the manu can be related to Capricorn and the departments of the Christ, the Hierarchy, to Aquarius. But they certainly work in the closest cooperationG. Both are great burden carriers. Frequently we find the Capricornian stooped with responsibility but no more so than the Aquarian who is carrying the burden of the world in selfless service.
