in Aquarius for the Average or Undeveloped Man
1. Venus in Aquarius—Indiscriminate,
Extroverted ‘Love’ and Affection:
Upon the early Mutable Cross Aquarius is a sign of superficial
extroversion; Venus functions as instinctual mind or affection. Under
this combination, ‘love’ and affection will be given to
many, but there is no real depth to it.
2. Venus in Aquarius—Superficial
Aquarius is one of the social and sociable signs, giving contact
with many people; Venus, at this stage of evolution, is pleasant, attractive,
magnetic. This combination is, therefore, a gregarious influence. The
person is drawn to gather with others, to socialize, meeting, thus,
the Venusian need for affiliation and union
3. Venus in Aquarius—Unconventional
Aquarius, ruled exoterically by Uranus, is a sign of deviation
from the norm—for good or ill. Venus, at this stage of evolution,
functions to draw people into relation. Under this combination, relationships
will often be unusual, unconventional, even strange by normal standards.
Aquarius expresses freedom from tradition and Venus is swept by this
freedom, drawn and delighted by those who are not bound by convention.
4. Venus in Aquarius—‘Groupiness’:
Aquarians on the early and middle Mutable Cross are weak in
‘self definition’—the province of Leo. They seem to
gain their sense of identity from their associates and associations.
They love to aggregate and congregate. The underlying thought might
be expressed as follows: ‘Because we are together, I am.’
:The magnetic power of Venus only adds to these tendencies. Pleasure
and enjoyment (the qualities of Venus) are found with and within the
5. Venus in Aquarius—Group
‘Love’ as Group Sex:
Aquarius has a close connection to the physical plane through
its rulership of the seventh manifested Creative Hierarchy. For early
Aquarius, “desire in form [is] ruler”. Venus as the ruler
of the first decanate of Aquarius (for the average or undeveloped man)
represents the energy of sex. Since in Aquarius love is widely and (at
this stage) indiscriminately shared, this position can (when augmented
by unfavorable aspects) degenerate into orgy and group sex.
6. Venus in Aquarius—“Highs
and Lows” in Relationship:
Although Aquarius has a reputation for aloofness, it is also
an emotional sign: “This sign, that of the water-carrier, is a
living sign and an emotional sign.” (EA 313) Early Aquarius can
bring many instabilities, many “highs and lows”, and in
extreme cases, and when reinforced by the fourth ray, manic-depression,
Venus, at this relatively early stage, represents the energy of attraction
(and repulsion). Is one “in love” or not “in love”.
If we combine the fluctuations of Aquarius with the attractions and
repulsions of Venus, we find the potential for and unsettled astral
condition with many emotional instabilities in relationship.
7. Venus in Aquarius—the
Clubs are associations of people which are gathered on the
basis of some distinguishing feature which they share in common. They
drawn together (Venus) for a shared purpose (Aquarius)—be that
purpose trivial or profound. Under this the influence of this combination,
the associated people like each other because they are like each other.
- loving each other because they are like each other again a limitation
of the love aspect. Such arrangements are often exclusive; love is shared
among those who reflect each other, and not with those who are different.
8. Venus in Aquarius—Friends
as Lovers; Lovers as Friends:
What is the difference between a friend and a lover? For some
there is a great difference; for others, hardly any difference at all.
Venus-in-Aquarius persons often fit into this latter category. They
seek flowing, non-binding relationships—such as those more frequently
found among friends than lovers. They may have difficulty discriminating
between the two, but are not troubled by this, and do not consider it
a difficulty. Under favorable circumstances their attitude to love is
friendly and non-possessive
9. Venus in Aquarius—Difficulty
Finding the Self in Relationships:
Venus in Aquarius people may have difficulty finding their own identity
in relationships because, initially, their sense of self is weak. If
two people who do not really know themselves well fall into relationship,
they will necessarily demonstrate a degree of superficiality towards
each other. They will often justify their association with some reason
having little to do with their true natures, for instance—“We
both belong the same biking club so we have a lot in common.”
Affection will remain superficial and extroverted until Venus (the intelligent
mind) turns self-reflective and self-illuminating.
10. Venus in Aquarius—Fear
Unconsciously, the average Aquarian knows that he or she lacks depth.
The planet Venus usually attracts towards intimacy, but in Aquarius,
the attraction may be dispersed and diversified for the very purpose
of avoiding intimacy. Intimacy is self revealing, and somehow, it may
be revealed that there is less to oneself than one thought. If, for
the average Aquarian, all the wares are in the front window, intimacy
may reveal that there is very little in the store behind. This could
be a threatening and self-minimizing realization, which is avoided by
refusing to get really close and personal with others.
11. Venus in Aquarius—Popularity,
Venus is magnetic and Aquarius reaches many people. People
with this combination may appear attractive to many. They will have
the “love of the crowd” (especially if the Cancer or the
Moon is also emphasized). Celebrities and all those within the public
eye, can only be helped by this combination if popularity is what they
12. Venus in Aquarius—Personal
Reinforcement through Extensive Association:
How is ego-strength built? One can give approval to oneself,
or, more usually, one can seek it from others. Love (Venus) reinforces
the sense of personal identity. With Venus in Aquarius, the person craves
this kind of appreciative reinforcement from many rather than few, and
certainly not from himself alone. This attitude could be expressed as,
“Many (Aquarius) love me (Venus) , therefore, I must be someone.”
13. Venus in Aquarius—the
Spread of Venereal Disease:
We live in a period of world history when the various venereal diseases,
always dangerous and at times destructive, have now become life-threatening.
Venus is, naturally, the ruler of venereal diseases; the word “venereal”
derives, in fact, from the word “Venus”. Aquarius, the great
sign of sharing, is also the sign of epidemics. Average humanity is
entering the Age of Aquarius via the decanate ruled by Venus. The current
AIDS epidemic (which reminds all people that the blood of humanity is
one blood) is correlated to the power of Venus in the first (third)
14. Venus in Aquarius—Miscellaneous:
a. A conflict in dynamics
may be present: Venus draws to the center, but Aquarius disperses
and is the sign of decentralization. The vibrancy of Aquarius different
from Solar Fire of Venus
b. There may be the possibility of social awkwardness because of the
prominence of the fifth ray expressing through both Venus and Aquarius.
in Aquarius for the Advanced Man
1. Venus in Aquarius—Group
Harmony and Peace:
Aquarius is the sign of the group and Venus the planet of
love and harmony. Individuals with this combination are frequently the
peace-makers and harmonizers within the group setting. Their pleasant,
non-confrontational attitudes help preserve the group cohesion they
so highly value.
2. Venus in Aquarius—Appreciating
the Quality of Group Members:
For the advanced man, Aquarius gives more tolerance for diversity;
it give positive appreciation. Eventually, Venus confers the ability
to see the soul in others, but even for the advanced man, it gives a
capacity to see the good, and in general, that which is of value in
other people. Venus in Aquarius recognizes and appreciates quality and
does not hesitate to say so. This appreciative attitude, naturally,
brings out the best in people.
3. Venus in Aquarius—Group
Integration within a group is dependent upon clear group purpose,
mutual appreciation, and the avoidance of disruptive frictions. The
combination Venus and Aquarius contributes to these three; it brings
clarity of mind, appreciation of quality in others, and the power to
harmonize. Group members functioning under this combination are, customarily,
agents for group integration.
4. Venus in Aquarius—the
Ability to Harmonize Diversity:
One tendency of the Aquarian energy is to level difference
and standardize diversity. In the advanced man, there emerges an appreciation
of diversity, and a capacity to unify differences, or to see diversity
as complementary to unity. There is a growing love for people in their
own right, and despite the fact that they might deviate from more conventional
expectations. This combination, therefore, can help very different people
not only “get along”, but become part of a really effective,
harmoniously functioning team.
5. Venus in Aquarius—Unity
Venus works for unity; Aquarius (ruled by individualistic
Uranus) brings diversity—at least once a more advanced evolutionary
level has been achieved. Toleration and, even, appreciation for diversity
are not enough to produce a team; that diversity must be unified by
means of intelligence and love (two qualities exemplary of Venus). Venus
radiates a kind of magnetism which fills all group members with a constructing
sense of belonging; this keeps them working harmoniously for a common
6. Venus in Aquarius—Loving
For the advanced Aquarius, love and friendship are united.
Friends are loved as true friends, and lovers, too, are loved as friends.
Relationships are non-binding and promote the emergence of individual
7. Venus in Aquarius—Sharing:
The Age of Aquarius will be the Age of Sharing. Sharing is
usually considered a positive action, but illusions, glamors, destructive
etheric patterns and diseases can also be shared. Generally however,
both Venus and Aquarius are energies which give. Venus represents the
sharing of garnered quality and Aquarius the wide-spread distribution
of all energies. Under Venus in Aquarius the purpose of sharing is to
enhance the quality of those among whom the sharing occurs. In short,
such sharing, motivated by love, enhances group life.
8. Venus in Aquarius—the
Interestingly both Venus and Aquarius are distributors of
the fifth ray. Venus represents the intelligent mind and Aquarius often
represents science—especially science as the progressive thought
of humanity. Today’s science is collaborative; it is a group endeavor.
In many ways, the scientific mind is the group mind, which Venus in
Aquarius certainly enhances.
9. Venus in Aquarius—the
Aquarius is one of the signs in which the Ray of Creative
Intelligence is strong; always, new solutions emerge from Aquarius.
Venus represents the creativity as the emergent pattern of the soul.
Whether or not the advanced man believes in the soul, he will certainly
believe in the mind and its creative potential. This combination is
open to higher inspiration, bringing through values which the world
considers “new”, but which are already resident within the
higher human faculties which both Venus and Aquarius represent, and
with which they have resonance and rapport.
10. Venus in Aquarius—Love
of Culture; Culture and the Arts:
Culture is, in many important respects, Aquarian. It arises
from the creativity of the group—from the best efforts of many
creative individuals. Venus stands for culture as the cultivation and
preservation of quality. Venus in Aquarius represents cultural values
(Venus) held in common (Aquarius), and the appreciation and enjoyment
of those values. Whereas Venus in Leo may represent the beauty of individual
works of art, or the works of distinct and distinctive creative individuals,
Venus in Aquarius represents the beauty created by an entire society,
and an appreciation of that beauty.
11. Venus in Aquarius—Cultural
and Cultured Groups:
Just as Aquarius governs the idea of the “club”,
and Venus helps unite and integrate such associations, on a higher turn
of the spiral, Venus in Aquarius represents those groups which come
together for the appreciation, enjoyment, promotion and preservations
of the highest cultural values of society. Every society produces its
“fruits” representing its highest values. These fruits are
exemplary works of beauty and quality. Venus in Aquarius governs those
cultured groups which keep these values alive, reminding the members
of any society of the highest and most refined products of its collective
12. Venus in Aquarius—Group
The Piscean Age has been an historical period in which many
creative individuals have emerged, making their contribution to humanity.
Venus is always associated with this creativity, just as the soul (which
Venus represents in the chart) is, fundamentally, the creative factor
in the life of the personality. The soul is group conscious and Venus
promotes this group consciousness. Similarly, Aquarius is the sign which,
more than any other, promotes group consciousness. Combining these ideas,
we find the emergence of group creativity, first for reasons that serve
the personalities of the various group members, and later, for soul-inspired
13. Venus in Aquarius—the
The term “ensemble” means, essentially, “together”.
Venus rules the arts. Both Venus and Aquarius bring people together
for creative purposes. A number of art forms—for instance, dance,
theatre, music—most frequently require an ensemble for their presentation.
Venus in this sign stands for the ability to put group values first
in the creation and presentation of works of beauty and cultural significance.
in Aquarius for the Disciple-Initiate Man
1. Venus in Aquarius—the
Aquarian Christ; Christ within the Group:
Venus (with Jupiter and Neptune) is a planet of love-wisdom.
Christ is the “Morning Star”—Venus. In other ways,
Christ is both Neptune and Jupiter. Venus promotes group consciousness
which is, essentially, “Christ Consciousness” and Aquarius
is the sign of the group. When Venus is functioning positively in relation
to Aquarius, we have the love and illumined energy of the Christ working
powerfully within the group.
2. Venus in Aquarius—Soul
Consummation Beyond Venus in Capricorn:
The soul body is not destroyed until the fourth initiation.
Venus in Capricorn represents the third initiation as a culminating
moment, but (with respect to the soul) not an absolutely consummating
moment. Soul development actually continues beyond the third initiation,
and it is this consummation (leading to the moment of the Great Renunciation)
which Venus in Aquarius can represent (for the initiate). Aquarius is
a sign of penultimate fulfillment (Pisces being the sign of ultimate
fulfillment). Venus is raised in Aquarius to a point of consummation,
though a still greater consummation is symbolized by Venus in Pisces.
How interesting that Venus should be so spiritually powerful in the
last three signs of the zodiac!
3. Venus in Aquarius—Group
Venus can represent “pure love wisdom” (EA 281)
In the Aquarian group setting, it unifies all aspects of group life—etheric
body, emotional body, lower and higher mind—under the pure love-wisdom
of the group soul, and, eventually, of the Hierarchy, itself.
4. Venus in Aquarius—Group
Venus is from our little geocentric perspective, the brightest
planet. As far as our Earth is concerned, Venus is truly the light-bearer.
Venus (planet of the group-conscious soul) is also the light-bearer
to the Aquarian group. The new Aquarian groups can become instruments
for the distribution of soul light through the illumined group mind.
5. Venus in Aquarius—Unified
The mind of the individual is often at odds with itself; this
is ever more true of the mind of the group. The ideal exists, however,
and Hierarchy represents that ideal—the unified, triadically-inspired
group mind. The Hierarchy is an Aquarian Body and (even given the differing
perspectives of its members) thinks as one. Under the influence of Venus
and Aquarius, disciples learn to emulate the higher initiates; they
learn to create an harmonious, invocative group mind which evokes light
from the higher sources of light. Venus in Aquarius promotes such a
harmonious circulation of thought among the minds of the group, that
a process of fusion begins, and before long, thought becomes the thought
of the group, and not the thought of any one individual within the group.
This fusion is the creation of group mind.
6. Venus in Aquarius—Unified
Under the influence of Leo, the disciple/initiate understands
himself as an individual, or later as an individualized soul—still
later as the One. Under Aquarius (and especially when Venus, the planet
of the soul, lends its energy), the disciple/initiate understands himself
as the group. Before he thinks, “I”, he thinks, “We”—at
least when Aquarius and Venus have done their work of decentralization.
With individual ego-identity subdued, soul identity can emerge, and
soul is ever group conscious. Venus in Aquarius is one of the preeminent
signs of group-soul consciousness. It promotes an awareness of all group
members as one consciousness and one being.
7. Venus in Aquarius—the
Soul-Infused Group Personality:
Venus is symbolically the soul, which must infuse the personality
(symbolically represented by a number of planets—the Sun, the
Moon, the Earth, Mars and Saturn. Venus in Aquarius is particularly
related to the group soul, but, as well, is shows a special facility
for creating the soul-infused group personality. Aquarius represents
the free circulation of all forces through the personality vehicles,
and Venus ensures that this circulation will be balanced, harmonious
and in line with a higher and more ideal pattern.
8. Venus in Aquarius—Intelligent
Brotherhood Based upon Appreciation; Brotherly Love:
We are told that Venus (as ruler of the last decanate of Aquarius)
will inaugurate the era of intelligent brotherhood. This is far different
from mindless, sentimentally affectionate togetherness. Venus is the
intelligent mind, and at this stage, the intelligent soul-infused mind,
which confers upon the individual the capacity to see, understand and
venerate the soul nature of his brother. Under this combined influence,
all human being are understood as arising from a common spiritual origin;
not only are they are “of one blood”, but they are of one
soul and one spirit. Thus, they (factually) inseparably united to each
other. Venus in Gemini also indicates brotherhood, and so does Venus
in Libra, but Venus in Aquarius (the pervasive sign) ensures that the
sense of brotherhood extends to one and all.
9. Venus in Aquarius—the
Light and Love of the Ashram:
Aquarius is the sign most associated with Hierarchy, and equally
with those sub-divisions of the Hierarchy, the Ashrams. Each Ashram
is an Aquarian association, society, family, fellowship—many are
the possible names. Each Ashram comes generically under Venus—the
planet from our initiatory regime originated. Each Ashram is, essentially,
as distributor of Venusian light and love. The Ashram is the group in
which the power and quality of Venus can finally express. This is even
more true of Hierarchy and Shamballa (which has its own very powerful
Venusian connections due to the Venusianly inspired origin of the Lord
of the World).
10. Venus in Aquarius—Distribution
of Soul Light and Love Through the Etheric Body:
Aquarius (with Gemini) is associated with the structure and
dynamics of the etheric body. Venus, interestingly, is said to rule
the nervous system (EH 143) which is a reflection of the nadis of the
etheric body. Both Venus and Aquarius are involved in the redemptive
process. Venus raises the Earth to its stature; Aquarius brings the
Earth and all its beings nearer to their archetypal expression. This
process of redemption and transformation must manifest upon the physical
plane, which requires the transmission of soul energies through the
etheric body. Venus through the Aquarian etheric body is light and love
come to Earth.
11. Venus in Aquarius—Blending
the Light and Love of the Soul with the Light and Love of the Ashram:
The process of soul-infusion may be well underway, and yet
the disciple may not yet be a conscious member of an Ashram. Venus in
Aquarius encourages the disciple (in the midst of his spiritual training
and culture) to undertake conscious affiliation with the inner group
(the Ashram) with which he is already subjectively affiliated. This
combination certainly stimulates progressive soul infusion, and expands
the process to include attraction to, integration with and fusion into
the Ashram. The light of the soul and the light of the Ashram become
12. Venus in Aquarius—Impersonal
The Aquarian attitude is often impersonal, and at the stage
of disciple/initiate, so consumed by the love of the soul, that the
love of the personality definitely becomes secondary. In addition, true
Venusian love is impersonal rather than personal, for it is inspired
from the level of the soul (which transcends interest in ordinary personality
involvements). This impersonal love need not be cold however; the warmth
of true friendship can radiate through it. Venus in Aquarius thus, confers
the capacity to share and distribute the impersonal love of the soul.
13. Venus in Aquarius—Group
Integration Promoting Soul-Personality Fusion:
The group is a testing ground for struggling personalities
seeking to become soul-infused. At the same time, the group offers tremendous
opportunity for soul-infusion, because the group-disciplines to which
the personalities of group members must submit are precisely those which
promote the reduction of selfishness and the emergence of the group-conscious
soul. Under the magnetic power of Venus and the coordinative energy
of Aquarius, the disciple integrates with his group merges and fuses
with his group and, simultaneously, discovers that his own soul-personality
fusion is steadily advancing.
14. Venus in Aquarius—Love:
the Key to Telepathy:
The key to telepathy is to “think outwardly towards
each other in love.” (DINA I 80) Venus unites individuals soul-to-soul
(as it were) under the Law of Magnetic Impulse. Further, Venus rules
the ajna center which impulses the higher forms of mental telepathy
(thought telepathy is of many varieties—some higher, some lower
than those impulsed by the ajna center). Group-conscious Aquarius is
ever conscious of affiliated associates, and rules the many lines of
subtle-energy connection between them. Under the influence of Venus
in Aquarius, the disciple/initiate is well-equipped to “think
outwardly (Aquarius) towards each other (Aquarius) in love (Venus)”.
15. Venus in Aquarius—the
‘Individual Soul’ and the Group Soul, Fused:
There is really no such thing as the “individual soul”—there
is no “my soul and thine”, but there are individual causal
bodies which preoccupy the attention of points of view within the group
soul—for every individual, is really a “point of view”.
If Venus in Leo represents the focus of consciousness within the individual
causal body, Venus in Aquarius helps consciousness to transcend such
a focus, and to embrace the causal state and contribution of affiliated
associates. The sense of the reality of group soul is, thus, confirmed,
and the “treasures” of all causal bodies are considered
the treasures of the one group consciousness. Venus in Aquarius (a decentralizing
influence), thus, contributes to the process of decentralization even
upon the higher mental plane. By means of these dynamics, the illusory
individual soul widens its horizons and merges which the group soul
which it has ever been.
16. Venus in Aquarius—Distribution
of ‘Causal Value’ in Service; Spiritual Sharing:
Causal bodies are treasures, repositories of value. Aquarius
is a major sign of distribution, and service. Venus rules all that which
is of value. Venus in Aquarius governs the process by which the contents
of the causal treasury is widely distributed in service. This distribution
applies both to the individual causal body, or to aggregates of causal
bodies found in group formation. Accumulated and refined value is offered
in service to many.
17. Venus in Aquarius—Science
of the Soul:
The science of the soul is studied upon the fifth ray. Both
Venus and Aquarius are important distributors of the fifth ray, and
will be increasingly so as the Aquarian Age progresses. The scientific
Aquarian energy will help to create outer instrumentation for the study
of the causal body and its informing consciousness. Venus (stimulating
the ajna center which becomes more psychically active at the time of
the third initiation) will stimulate the inner instrumentation for such
study. The world of the causal body will have to be investigated psychically
(yet scientifically) investigated, and to this investigation Venus (reinforced
by Aquarius which rules some of the higher psycho-mental powers) makes
its definite contribution.
18. Venus in Aquarius—Group
Use of the Light for Scientific Penetration into Higher Realms:
Modern science is a group activity; this will be even more
so for modern psychic science. Scientific group investigation of the
soul realm will develop during the Aquarian Age. Individual psychic
testimony will be corroborated by peers with reliable psychic powers.
Groups will intelligently enter the higher worlds together, with their
“eyes” wide open.
19. Venus in Aquarius—Esoteric
The new esoteric psychology is group psychology and cannot
be understood without reference to the Laws of Group Work (the Seven
Laws of the Soul). The two rays needed to study this type of psychology
are the second and the fifth. Venus is amply endowed with both rays,
and Aquarius with the fifth, constellationally, and the second via Jupiter
and a veiled Neptune. The soul is the true psyche, and Venus is the
symbol for the soul. Aquarius is the group sign, and the laws of the
soul are group laws. We can see how the study and understanding of esoteric
group psychology is facilitated by this combination, whereas, for instance,
Venus in Leo or Scorpio would have more individual application.
We have already discussed
how Venus in Aquarius represents the energetic quality of the Ashram,
which is group soul expressing in relative perfection. It is interesting
to realize that all members of the Brotherhood are considered to be
esoteric psychologists regardless of what their ray emphasis may be.
To be a member of the Hierarchy confers this ability.
20. Venus in Aquarius—Group
Aquarius is an idealistic sign; it ever seeks to improve the
present condition and raise it closer to ideal performance. Venus, too,
represents the ideal (and, probably monadically, distributes the sixth
ray). The soul is the ideal towards which the personality strives; Venus
is one of the major symbols for (and energizers of) the soul. When the
idealistic tendencies of Aquarius are combined with its group orientation,
group idealism arises. There are militantly idealistic groups which
(under Mars) serve personal or material ends. Venus (in combination
with Aquarius) elevates the idealism of the group and brings it in line
with soul objectives.
21. Venus in Aquarius—the
Beauty of Group Unity:
Probably all have had the experience (when gathered with the
members of a spiritual group) of the influx of buddhic energy. This
unifying energy (related in part to Venus) carries a beauty of its own.
Beauty appears in unity; unity appears in beauty. Venus in Aquarius
is an influence ideally attuned to the registration of the quality of
beauty which emerges within sufficiently soul-unified groups.
22. Venus in Aquarius—Revelation
of the Potencies of the Soul:
The soul is the genius within every human being. Aquarius is that synthetic
sign in which genius emerges (not narrowly but in breadth) as the harvest
of many lifetimes of particularized labor. Venus, too, is associated
with all the higher soul qualities which, taken in their aggregate,
express as what the world calls “genius”. Venus in Aquarius
is one of those combinations which contribute to the revelation of the
potencies and higher vibratory capacities of the soul. This revelation
is not confined to the individual soul. The revelation of the potencies
of the group soul are even more important, and express what might be
called ‘group genius’ which exists just as certainly as
23. Venus in Aquarius—Values
Stored in Hierarchy (and in the Causal Body of Humanity):
Although Hierarchy exists (now, for the most part) beyond
the realm of the causal body (since in re-focussed upon the buddhic
plane after 1925), it still must be considered as a great repository
if higher values, (sublimated, of course through elevation into triadal
realms). Aquarius represents the “Life more Abundant” available
through Hierarchy and Shamballa. Venus represents the accumulated value
harvested through the experience of all members of Hierarchy—an
immense treasure. Venus in Aquarius represents the radiant release of
this accumulated value for the welfare of humanity and the planet. Of
course, other planets, such as Jupiter and Uranus participate in this
release, but Venus is the symbol of the stored treasure. The causal
body of humanity as a whole contains extraordinary treasures (if compared
with the impoverished personality expression of the majority of the
human race). How much greater must be the treasury of Hierarchy, awaiting
its time of distribution! Perhaps humanity must learn to use and fully
express the contents of its causal body, before Hierarchy can release
the value it has in store. The formula is ever—“Use, Demand.
Take.” First, we human beings must use what we have accumulated;
then the treasures of Hierarchy will be more available. Over these treasures,
Venus rules. Aquarius makes them broadly available.
24. Venus in Aquarius—the
Beauty of the Full Spectrum of Ashramic Living:
Hierarchy expresses all colors and hues of the spectrum. Aquarius
is the sign of the Hierarchy and, symbolically, Aquarius represents
the “coat of many colors”. The Light of Shamballa, passing
through an ‘emanative prism’ becomes the sevenfold spectrum
of Hierarchy. Venus represents the beauty of the full spectrum of the
Aquarian Ashramic Life.
25. Venus in Aquarius—Miscellaneous:
a. Group Initiation: The
initiator wields the fifth ray (both Venus and Aquarius), and initiation
must occur in the group (Aquarius).
b. “Friends of the Christ”
c. Ashramic Culture:--high level of refined group interplay. The culturing
effect of the Ashram. The process of “spiritually civilizing”
d. An excellent energy to be wielded by the Lord of Civilization.
