THE PROPOSED CHART.
JUSTIFICATIONS FOR RVB CHART.
The information available to us was his date of birth –
27 September 1893 – no time or place of birth.
We had his postal address listed for
Los Angeles, California, so we decided to take Los Angeles as his place of birth.
The only background information we had that he was Alice Bailey’s secretary and that his name was Victor Fox.
The other information, implied from the hints in DK’s instructions was that he had a serious/karmic relationship, on account of which he withdrew from the group work from 1938 to 1943 in order to work out the karmic issues related to this relationship. For this reason there are no instructions from the Tibetan for that period.
On page 268 DINA I we read: “ In the daily round of duties ( Saturn in the 6th house ) and of detail ( Mars in Virgo, in the 6th house – especially if ruling the Aries AS. Also he had a health problem with the physical body – Mars being one of the planet ruling the physical body ) comes for you the opportunity ( Saturn – the planet of spiritual opportunity ) to transfigure life ( Capricorn ) in terms of accomplishment ( MC Capricorn – Saturn in the 6th house. MC represents the life purpose/accomplishment/Dharma ) In these words are to be found for you the objective of this life’s endeavour ( Mercury, the esoteric ruler of the proposed AS is conjunct Saturn, the exoteric and esoteric ruler of the MC ). In this activity and general accomplishment there must come – as the years go by – ( for this July 1935 instruction, transiting Saturn was square the progressed Mercury, ( the esoteric ruler of the Aries AS ) and in 1937 the transiting Saturn would oppose the natal Mars ( the exoteric ruler of Aries ) and starts to oppose all the Libra planets and then conjunct the Aries AS ) what I might call crisis of accomplishment ( This is a hint of initiation – Capricorn is a sign of crisis of initiation. The Solar Eclipse for January 1935, at 13 Capricorn 57 was conjunct the natal MC at 15 Capricorn 09 and for the years ahead there were several Eclipses activating the natal and progressed MC ).
On page 269 DINAI we read: “ The routine of the daily demands ( 6th house of everyday life ) can usually be met by the technique of an aligned personality ( the 6th house is related to the skills/techniques of correction/integration of the vehicles/bodies ) and in your case this is particularly so “. ( the Sun, representing the personality, is in the 6th house ).
Page 271 DINA I “ I refer to the financing of the work which I have planned ( Moon in Taurus ) Co-operating with those who are endeavouring to procure the needed funds for the work ( Jupiter, the Soul Ray planet and the esoteric ruler of the 11th house of group work, is in the 2nd house of money and trine Mars, the exoteric ruler of the Aries AS and the exoteric and esoteric ruler of the 8th house of financial resources. DK has dedicated the whole June 1936 instruction to the question of money. RVB was afraid to talk directly about money and this fear went down into the very roots of his being. Both, the exoteric and esoteric rulers of the Cancer 4th house ( the roots of being ) are in the sign/house related to money. Moon is in Taurus and
Neptune is in the 2nd house. Speech/Throat centre is related to Taurus. This fear, we are told, is basic in form life ( Cancer ) and also in the sensitivity of the 2nd Ray type and for him it represented a difficulty of Soul expression ( 2nd Ray Soul ) not a personality. Jupiter, his Soul Ray planet, is in the 2nd house, being exalted in Cancer, provides a link here. We will come back to this, a very important issue, in more detail in the esoteric interpretation of the chart. )
In the June 1934 instruction, page 268: “ You are inwardly freer and must endeavour to keep your personality life free and simple ( here we have a hint of warning that he should not let personal relationship get in the way of the group work. Transiting Uranus – the esoteric ruler of the 7th house of relationships/partnerships and the esoteric dispositor of the Libra Sun and the exoteric ruler of the 11th house of group work – was conjunct the proposed Aries AS in March/April 1934 and entered the 1st house of personal independence/activity. ) Let nothing and no one remove you from your inner poise ( Libra ). Yet turn not your back on aught of joy or happiness which may come your way ( here we have the indication of the Master’s prevision of the impending relationship – transiting Uranus trine the progressed Venus ( the esoteric and exoteric rulers of the 7th house of relationships )
June 1936/271: “ you have succeeded in freeing yourself inwardly from much of the detail work ( Virgo/6th house ) with which you have been confronted ( in March 1936 the progressed Mars left the 6th house of detailed work and entered the 7th house of right human relation and co-operation with others ). In the future you can do much towards the financing of the work which I have planned. Co-operating with those who are endeavouring to procure the needed funds ( Mars is the exoteric and esoteric ruler of the Scorpio 8th house of financial resources, now in the 7th house of co-operation with other. In the same month – March 1936 – the progressed Moon entered the 8th house ).
January 1937/274: “ Live on the mountain top ( Capricorn ) and walk there with your brothers ( the transiting Jupiter – esoteric ruler of the 11th house of the group brothers – conjunct the Capricorn MC in February 1937 ).
January 1938/277: “ Prepare for complications in your life, ( in April 1938 the progressed Uranus ( esoteric ruler of the 7th house ) conjunct the Solar Arc Mars ( exoteric ruler of the AS ) and the Solar Arc Uranus conjunct the progressed Moon, transiting Uranus opposition the natal Venus ) for now you travel not alone ( the progressed Venus ( the exoteric ruler of the 7th house ) trine the natal Moon in December 1937, the Solar Arc Venus conjunct the progressed Moon in August 1938 and the progressed Venus conjunct the progressed Moon in May 1939).
January 1938/276: “ These periods of upheaval and re-arrangement ( Scorpio/Pluto – re-orientation ) come at times …They must be lived through, veiled lessons ( Scorpio tests ) learnt and the possible expansions of consciousness ( initiations ) induced. In January 1938 the Solar Arc Pluto square the natal AS and thus indicating a major re-orientation in personal and spiritual life and points to an important karmic lesson ( Pluto is the esoteric ruler of the 12th house of unredeemed karma ) involving a relationship (the natal Pluto is the dispositor of the Venus/Uranus conjunction in Scorpio – the exoteric and esoteric rulers of the 7th house and aspecting them by a quincunx – the aspect of transformation, related to Scorpio and Vertex and so related to fate ). In August 1938 the progressed Vertex reached the opposition to the natal Pluto and thus confirming the fateful/unavoidable lesson to be learned through this relationship. From the Tibetan’s comments we see that this lesson is a very important part of his initiatory tests. That is why I considered the natal semisquare aspect ( another aspect related to Scorpio, transformation and detachment ) of Pluto to the AS ( being the only aspect to the AS, besides the Nodes ) of a great significance and my rectification was greatly guided by it.
November 1944/DINA II/561: “ The loneliness of your life warrants at times my endorsing any spiritual confidence of which you may be possessed. ..the place of triumph ( 562 ) has to be exactly where you stand and within the circumference of a somewhat limited physical sphere. ( Mars ( the exoteric ruler of the Aries AS in Virgo, in the 6th house ). The progressed Moon ( the esoteric ruler of Virgo ) has entered Pisces in November 1943 and in October 1944 entered the 12th house ( seclusion ). In February 1945 the Solar Arc Neptune ( the exoteric ruler of the 12th house ) square the natal Moon ( feeling of insecurity/inferiority ). RVB’s life was already restricted and limited but with the Moon’s entry into Pisces/12th house he would feel even more lonely. DK knows this and so tries to endorse his spiritual confidence.
The November 1944 instruction is focussed on deeper integration into the Ashram. “ The objective of this life of interlude and of a somewhat drastic, hampering experience, plus repeated frustration, is to fit you in a later life to transfer ( 563 ) into the Ashram of the Master K.H. ( In July 1945 the transiting Saturn conjunct the IC and enters the 4th house ( the Ashram ). In the same month there was a S. Eclipse at 16 Cancer 57, falling on the IC.
DINA II/567: “ But the use of the spiritual will as it can affect and direct the affairs of the personality is another thing altogether; it is here that you must seek to learn the direct action of the will of the soul as you face the opportunities and crisis of life. …orienting your soul-infused personality towards the Spiritual Triad. …Vision/Plan ( 566 ), Illumination/Purpose “. In September 1946 the progressed Venus square the natal Saturn. In May 1947 the progressed Venus conjunct the natal Capricorn MC and entered the 10th house. We see the natal Venus/Saturn/MC triangle activated and we are able to understand the dynamics of the Venus/Saturn aspect in relations to the higher/deeper issues and its importance in relation to the 3rd initiation ( which was his ultimate achievement ). The will of the soul ( Venus in Capricorn ) must direct the affairs of the personality ( Saturn in Libra ) as he faces the opportunities and crisis of life ( Saturn/Capricorn MC ); the mutual reception of Venus/Saturn makes this aspect even more powerful. There is a shift of energies/levels from the Plan/Vision to the Purpose/Illumination and from personality/Soul fusion to Soul-infused personality orientation towards the Spiritual Triad. We deal here with the Capricorn/10th house related issues ( Plan/Purpose/S. Triad ), the Ajna ( vision/illumination ) as ruled by Venus and accessing/using of the Will ( 1st Ray as transmitted through Capricorn/Saturn).
THE PROGRESSED CHART FOR JANUARY 1931.
January1931/DINA I /263,264
You have this life stepped out into a greater measure of release ( Uranus-esoteric dispositor of Libra Sun and Hierarchical ruler of Aries AS )than was anticipated by your soul or by Those Who watch upon the inner side of life. The day of opportunity ( Saturn in Libra ) opened for you and you took it. I have sought within your aura for that with which I should deal and my message for you is perhaps an unexpected one ( Uranus ) – message of speed. Not hurry nor the rushing forward into experience with undue haste, ( Aries AS/Mars conjunct the Sun ) but the steady, conscious quickening of the vibration which leads to power.( 1st Ray/Vulcan as the esoteric dispositor of the Moon ) Your outer demonstration gives not full expression to the pulsating life ( 1st Ray ) within; the activity of your soul is limited by your physical plane movements. ( Moon/Taurus ) More rapid coordination between the inner and the outer ( more fusion between Soul and personality ) is needed and this at no cost to your achieved poise ( Libra ) nor your really fine efficiency. ( Saturn, ruler of the MC, in the 6th house, conjunct Sun and Mercury and trine Pluto ) You will know whereof I speak for, in your high moments, you annoy yourself by your slowness of response to the things which are inwardly sensed. ( Mars in Virgo and Moon, its esoteric dispositor, in Taurus ) You have poise, ( Libra ) courage ( Saturn trine Pluto ) and knowledge ( Mercury trine Pluto) and the “ way of the disciple “, which the disciple has to tread, is known to you, but the cells of the physical body need more rapid sensitising ( Vulcan, the esoteric dispositor of Taurus Moon, is in the 6th house of correction/purification of the vehicles. Vulcan rules the atomic sub-plane matter, ruling every 1st sub-plane of all the 7 systemic planes, related to vibration. The way to increase radiance is to increase vibration or pulsation of life ( 1st Ray ) in the cells of the physical body ) and this through the bringing in of energy ( the energy of the Soul ) and not through diets or other physical plane means. ( Mars, ruling the physical body, is in the 6th house of health ) For the next six months send the energy you may contact to the throat centre ( Saturn ) – not to the physical throat, but to the centre which lies back of the physical organ up the spine and yet outside the physical body altogether. Rapidity of spiritual reaction in all the cells of the body is the word for you, brother of mine…Go forward in strength ( Aries AS/Capricorn MC – Mercury conjunct Saturn ) ( which you have ) and in peace (Vulcan in Libra ) ( which is yours ) and in poise ( Libra ) For you, breathing exercises will do much. ( Venus – esoteric ruler of Gemini ( Etheric body ), ruling the 3rd house and exoteric ruler of 2nd house ( Prana ), conjunct Uranus/7th Ray, ruler of the 11th house Aquarius ( Etheric body ). Jupiter, the Soul Ray planet and esoteric ruler of Aquarius, is in Gemini, in the 2nd house and is trine Mars ( physical body ). Moon in Taurus ( veiling Vulcan ) rules the Etheric body from the circulatory point. Vulcan is re-patterning the Etheric body and the Etheric body ( the 2nd aspect ) is re-patterning the physical body ( the 3rd aspect ). It is hard to work with or relate the 2 and 3 together ( Venus semisquare Mars and opposition Moon ).
When we look at the progressions we see Venus progressed semisquare natal Venus and square natal Mars. Mars by Solar Arc opposition natal Moon, the progressed Sun conjunct natal Venus and the progressed AS making quincunx to this conjunction. Transiting Saturn/Pluto/Jupiter aspecting the progressed Mars and the Solar Arc Venus/Mars This tells us that the issue of breath and of speeding up the vibration of the cells in the physical body by bringing in the energy of the Soul was an important part of this incarnation. The progressed Moon in the 6th house conjunct the natal Sun bring the emphasis on health, diet, healing and this New Moon indicates the initiation of the process of healing/correction of the vehicles. Chiron ( the wounded healer ) in the 6th house and related to Virgo which rules the 6th house , is being aspected by sextile from the progressed Sun and by square by the Solar Arc Moon. The progressed Moon conjunction to the natal Mercury and Saturn points to the mental energy and the Throat centre where the energy needed to be brought in. The progressed conjunction of AS/Moon/Neptune and the Transiting Pluto conjunction to the Solar Arc Neptune and Transiting Saturn opposition to it point to the karmic relation to the Ashram/Master ( Moon/Neptune rule the 4th house, Pluto/Saturn transit through 4th /10th houses ) and the unresolved karma ( Pisces 12th house ruled by Neptune/Pluto ) of the physical body ( 4th house Cancer ). We have here meeting of the past ( Moon ), present ( Sun – the progressed AS quincunx the progressed Sun ) and the future ( AS ). The importance of all this is further emphasised by the Transiting Saturn/Pluto square to the AS/DC and square to the natal and progressed Nodes and thus indicating a major process of critical transformation and re-adjustment.
PROGRESSED CHART FOR JUNE 1932.
June 1932/DINA I/264,265
You have carried much responsibility and done much work with fortitude, and you must now remember that all periods of strain are but preparatory to the handling of still more work with increased efficiency and speed. ( here we have the confirmation of the importance of the past six months progressions/transits which produced a period of strain but some positive results ) All disciples who are being trained for that stage called by the inappropriate name of “ accepted disciple “ are being taught to use their own magnetic vibration to gather to themselves those who will constitute their own group, those whom they can specifically help. This work, they are taught by being put into a position of trust in relation to their fellow-men. Your work is, therefore, the work of training people to be workers ( Sun/Mars/Mercury/Saturn in the 6th house of discipleship training/work/labour, the esoteric rulers of AS/MC - Mercury/Saturn, the planets of Discipleship, are in conjunction ) and so fit them to be co-operators ( Libra ) with the Plan (Capricorn ) You will contact those who need you not as a leader or teacher. They will be those whom you know and feel require training and help. ( 6th house – ordinary everyday life and work and people known in that environment ) They have to be taught to work inclusively ( 2nd Ray ) and to be animated by intelligent love. ( Venus ) Take them into your aura and hold them in the light. Note their increase of capacity and later their individual reaction to you yourself. By this you will arrive at an understanding of your vibratory, magnetic capacity. ( Venus conjunct Uranus – magnetic radiation; the Solar Arc Venus reached the Venus/Uranus midpoint in June 1932 ) The extend of your magnetic radiation could well be doubled and is not yet equal to the power latent within you. ( Venus/Neptune/Chiron – the closest triangle of energies in the chart related to the healing magnetic aura )Your usefulness to my group is that of emotional poise. ( Libra/4th Ray, 2nd Ray Astral body ).
When we look at the progressions and transits for these 6 months there are particularly three planets emphasised – Jupiter, Chiron and Moon – all in relation to the 6th house of discipleship training/healing/service. Transiting Chiron conjunct the progressed Jupiter ( hierarchical ruler of the 6th house ) and also conjunct the Solar Arc North Node. Transiting Jupiter in the 6th house conjunct the natal and progressed Chiron. This points to the need of increase of the 2nd Ray/love (Jupiter ) in his work as a guide ( Chiron ) of those he knows and feel require guidance ( 6th house ). The progressed Moon ( esoteric ruler of the 6th house ), in the 6th house, conjunct natal and progressed Saturn ( the exoteric and esoteric ruler of the MC ). This brings into focus his life purpose/Dharma ( MC ) to help/train those he knows through everyday contact/work ( 6th house ).
PROGRESSED CHART JANUARY 1933.
January 1933/DINA I/265,266
Since I last communicated with you, you have had many conditions to face which have inevitably promoted growth ( Jupiter ) and developed your intuition.( 4th Ray, transiting Neptune square progressed Mercury ) This latter faculty is steadily awakening and for you one of the ways of externalising your inner awareness is through the use of a spiritual diary. ( the progressed Venus, esoteric ruler of the 3rd house ( writing ) entered Capricorn ( externalisation ) Gather seed thoughts by putting them on paper and enlarging upon them as you write. ( the Solar Arc Jupiter square natal Mercury, exoteric ruler of the 3rd house ) Your meditation ( Mercury ) each day can be made to serve such a purpose also and the two requirements for right meditation ( where you are concerned ) are the formulation of such seed thoughts ( Mercury/Saturn ) and definite visualisation work ( Ajna – Venus/Neptune; 4th Ray ) The reason for the meditation which I am giving you is to foster a close intuitive recognition of the reality which lies behind the group of disciples and which you are now associated through your relationship with me. Another is the stimulation of the throat centre ( Mercury/Saturn ) through which you must learn to work during the third stage of the meditation work assigned…Your contribution to my work you know. You have to present a stable focal point; ( Libra ) you must be a wise guide ( Jupiter/Chiron; transiting Jupiter conjunct natal, progressed and Solar Arc Chiron ) and friend and you must hold steadily the reins of government ( Capricorn MC; Solar Eclipse on progressed MC, Transiting Saturn conjunct progressed MC; the progressed Sun sextile natal MC ) with self-effacement ( Sun conjunct Saturn; the progressed Sun semisextile the natal Saturn; progressed AS trine the natal Saturn and quincunx the progressed Sun ) and yet with true insight. ( Sun trine Jupiter; Transiting Jupiter conjunct the natal Sun ) You must also foster impersonality in those who work around you; this can only be accomplished as you yourself learn to be more impersonally personal.( Impersonality ( Saturn conjunct Sun/Mercury in Libra; Venus conjunct Uranus ) is not hard for you but the more difficult task of personal interest and contact is to be achieved, for you will unfold by that method. ( For Libra the easiest way to achieve peace is to stay impersonal but not in personal manner. The basis of impersonality is Soul love where personal emotions are transmuted by the Soul love into impersonality as a result of mental polarisation. Impersonality is one of the qualities for which the Master looks in his disciples at the technical stage of Accepted Discipleship. This indicates that he was at that stage – between the 2nd and 3rd initiation where a disciple achieve mental polarisation. When we look at the progressions/transits we see some interesting dynamics. The progressed Moon ( the esoteric ruler of the 6th house of the discipleship training ) entered the 7th house of personal/right human relation/Soul-personality integration, reaching the opposition to its natal position and opposition to the natal AS ( Soul purpose ). It conjuncts the progressed Mars ( exoteric ruler of the AS and exoteric and esoteric ruler of the 8th house ( of deep psychological transformation and of detachment/relinquishment/death ). This Moon/Mars conjunction was opposed by the Transiting Uranus ( esoteric ruler of the 7th house ) and by conjunction of the Transiting Mars. The progressed Moon entered Scorpio ( sign of tests and trials for the first three initiations; Moon in Scorpio is an archetype for the 2nd initiation/death of the astral body and the death of personality at the 3rd initiation ). Moon and Mars are involved at the 3rd initiation. The progressed Venus ( exoteric ruler of the 7th house and hierarchical ruler of Capricorn ) entered Capricorn and sextile the progressed Moon. The transiting Saturn ( exoteric and esoteric ruler of Capricorn ( crisis of initiation ) square both, the natal and progressed Moon from the 10th house ( house, related among other things to integrated personality and mental polarisation ). What we see here is an indication of tests ( Scorpio ) related to 3rd initiation ( Moon/Mars ) to develop impersonality by achievement of mental polarisation. The above progressions/transits echo the natal dynamics of Venus conjunct Uranus opposition to Moon and Venus semisquare Mars and semisextile Saturn in relation particularly to Libra/Scorpio/Capricorn.
PROGRESSED CHART JUNE 1934
June 1934/DINA I/266,267,268
The door of opportunity ( Aries AS – Mercury ( the esoteric ruler ) conjunct Saturn ( planet of spiritual opportunity and ruler of the MC – life purpose/Dharma ) in Libra )– growing out of the intensified effort of the next two years – opens wide for you. ( during these next two years there is activation, by transiting Pluto/Neptune/Uranus/Saturn/Jupiter and the progressed Moon, of the Venus-Neptune-Chiron and Venus-Saturn-Neptune triangles; there is progressed New Moon in Scorpio in the 7th house and three Eclipses on the natal and progressed MC ) I am not proposing to change your meditation work at this time. Continue with it as outlined to you in my last communication. Seek for the symbol to be found above the head of each of your co-disciples. This is an interesting form of work and for you at this time most developing. ( Moon by progression activates the Venus/Neptune/Chiron triangle – developing intuition through the interpretation of symbols ) Bear in mind that in the interplay of love ( that which goes forth and that which is given back ) will suddenly come revelation. ( Ajna – the eye of revelation; centre of vision ) A few hints at this point may prove useful to you:
In the linking of the heart ( Jupiter/Neptune ) and the ajna ( Venus ) centres will come increased ability to do this work. This linking will come as you pour out love to your fellow disciples ( Libra – Law of magnetic impulse ) and as you endeavour to focus your consciousness between the eyebrows ( the ajna ). It is here that you have failed in technique…
Direct your thought energy ( Ajna is the directing centre – this implies linking his Ajna with the Ajna of his co-disciples; the thought ( Mercury/Saturn ) is carrier of love ( Jupiter ) directed by Ajna ( Venus, the exoteric and esoteric dispositor of Mercury/Saturn/Jupiter; the progressed Venus quincunx the natal Jupiter ) ( which is the carrier of love energy ) to the ajna centre of each of your fellow disciples…
Study with care the instructions given to your fellow disciples, and seek to fit more definitely into the general plan. You are inwardly freer than heretofore ( Transiting Uranus ( esoteric ruler of the 7th house ) conjunct natal AS and entering the 1st house of independent activity ) and must endeavour to keep your personality life free and simple. ( DK’s prevision of impending relationship which might complicate his life; transiting Uranus trine the progressed Venus ( the esoteric and exoteric rulers of the 7th house is the taste of what is to come ) I think you will know within yourself wherefore I am emphasising to you, at this time, the two words: Freedom. Simplicity. ( Uranus – hierarchical ruler of AS ) They are, for you, the key to successful service. ( Uranus, the exoteric ruler of the 11th house of group service and esoteric ruler of the 7th house of right human relation and co-operation ) Let nothing and no one remove you from your achieved inner poise. ( Libra – balance which he must not loose and which might be upset by the progressed Moon conjunct the natal Uranus/Venus ( esoteric/exoteric rulers of Libra; again a hint of impending relationship ) Yet turn not your back on aught of joy or happiness which come your way ( but at the same time he should not reject the happiness of relationship as long as he keeps his achieved balance ) and that may increase your efficiency in the work – the place wherein your soul, your karma and your link with my group have placed you.
The speeding up of your vibratory capacity has proceeded satisfactory. If you can maintain this increase through the power of your meditation, ( the progressed Mercury semisextile the natal Uranus ) you will bring your inner bodies into such a rhythm ( Uranus/7th Ray ) that the demands of the future will find you equipped to meet them. The progressed New Moon in Scorpio, in the 7th house indicates the beginning of a very important tests to be learned through relationship. The progressed conjunction of Moon/Vertex in the 7th house of right human relation points to the unavoidable fateful/karmic lesson to be learned which, if learned, will increase his work efficiency ( Moon is the esoteric ruler of the 6th house of training others to be workers/co-operators of the Plan; Moon as the hierarchical ruler of the 11th house points to his link with DK’s group and His Ashram ( Moon is the exoteric ruler of the 4th house – the Ashram ). The S. Eclipse on the progressed MC in February 1934 and the S. Eclipse on the natal MC in January 1935 and the Transiting Saturn conjunction of the progressed MC stress the importance of the present and future events/lessons in relation to his life purpose/Dharma ( MC ). These indicate the opportunity of increase of responsibility, efficiency and achievement.
PROGRESSED CHART JULY 1935.
July 1935/DINA I/268,269,270
In the daily round ( 6th house ) of duties ( Saturn ) and of detail ( Virgo; Mars – the exoteric ruler of AS in Virgo in the 6th house ) comes for you the opportunity ( Saturn – spiritual opportunity ) to transfigure( Capricorn/3rd initiation ) life in terms of accomplishment.( Saturn, ruler of the Capricorn MC – life purpose/Dharma, in the 6th house of practical work/labour, conjunct Mercury – the esoteric ruler of the AS – Soul purpose and the exoteric ruler of the 6th house ) Transiting Saturn is square the progressed Mercury ) In these words are to be found for you the objective of this life’s endeavour. ( This is a clear indication that this incarnation was of great importance and opportunity to prepare for the 3rd initiation ) True accomplishment involves a life of steady radiance and a stable uniform activity;( Moon in Taurus – Vulcan ( persistence ) in Libra in the 6th house of daily routine; Sun in the 6th house ( personality efficiency and steadfastness –4th Ray keyword of integration ); rhythmic regularity and steady radiance – Uranus/7th Ray, the esoteric ruler of Libra ) but, brother of mine, in this activity and general accomplishment there must come – as the years go by – what I might call crisis of achievement. ( Capricorn – sign of crisis of achievement and initiation, ruling the MC) There was Solar Eclipse on the natal MC in January 1935 There must be culminating moments ( Capricorn – mountain top of achievement ) when the uniform activity ( Moon in Taurus – plodding; Aries/Libra – no signs of crises ) climaxes into hours of dynamic crisis.( the dynamic power of the Soul is needed; Venus ( the Soul/Son of Mind ) as the final exoteric/esoteric dispositor of all the planets and the most elevated planet in the chart, is the hierarchical ruler of Capricorn. It is semisextile ( within 1 degree 11 ) Saturn, the exoteric and esoteric ruler of Capricorn. We see here that it is the energy of the hierarchical ruler required to bring about the needed results. This tells us that the hierarchical rulers start to operate as one approaches the 3rd initiation and that the aspect between Venus and Saturn is very critical aspect at this stage )Then one cycle of work ends in some direction or another and a new cycle of activity ends in some direction or another and a new cycle of activity commences in the same place and within the limits of the same general endeavour; this is consciously recognised as a new beginning.( Aries AS – the sign of initiating of new activity; Uranus/7th Ray – initiates a new order/rhythm of life; we see here the relation of the exaltation of Uranus in Scorpio to the energy of the AS ( further emphasised by Uranus hierarchical rulership of Aries ). We can say that all the Cardinal signs are somehow related to the new activity and here they rule the angles of the chart ( AS/DC-MC/IC ) and Uranus is related to all their rulers through its conjunction to Venus and opposition to Moon ( veiling most probably here Uranus ). There are 6 conjunctions in the chart ( 11 if we count the AS/Nodes/Vertex ). Conjunction is an aspect related to Aries/Libra – Mars/Mercury symbolising new cycle of activity and new initiative. It is a power aspect of dynamic energies. ) Unless such moments of crisis occur, the life simmers down to a general dead level and ( even if useful ) offers not the chance for an extreme effort with its consequent need to draw upon the full resources of the soul. ( here we see how important it is that a disciple at this stage of the Path ( that of Accepted Discipleship ) need to initiate ( Aries AS ) the crisis himself, otherwise he is not progressing or living to the full potential offered. That is why the recognition and seizing of opportunity ( Aries AS, Saturn/Libra ) was one of the keynotes of his life. ) The routine of the daily demands ( the 6th house ) can usually be met by the technique of an aligned personality ( Steadfastness – the integrating keyword for the 4th Ray personality ) and in your case this is particularly so. ( Sun in the 6th house ) It must, however, have in it – if it is to be adequate to the demands of this day and period of opportunity – those moments wherein the personality ( Sun/Mars, both representing the personality ) demands the full cooperation ( Libra ) of the soul. ( Venus ); Venus ( the exoteric dispositor of the Sun ) semisquare Mars ( the exoteric and esoteric dispositor of Venus ), Mars conjunct Sun, Venus opposition Moon ( the esoteric dispositor of Mars ) Every such moment of fusion ( Soul/personality fusion; here is implied the Technique of Fusion, employed upon the Path of Discipleship – in this case the 2nd Ray Technique with motive of service ( 6th house ), producing the 3rd Ray results – that of increased vital livingness and dynamic flow of the Soul or spiritual life into everyday life or physical plane ) increases the personality potential and its vibratory influence ( Vulcan – radiation – the esoteric dispositor of Mars in Virgo ( ruled esoterically by Moon veiling Vulcan and Neptune ) it also initiates ( Aries AS ) those unfoldments that profoundly and deeply change the rhythm of the life. ( Uranus/7th Ray in its exaltation in Scorpio ( Moon falls here ) in opposition to Moon ( esoteric dispositor of Mars ) in Taurus ( Uranus falls here ) and Mars is the exoteric and esoteric dispositor of Uranus. We see here a definite relation between Moon, Mars and Uranus. The potential of increasing the vibration of the lunar lords ( Moon/Mars ) through the energies of Vulcan and Uranus is there. Unfortunately we cannot see exactly the placement of Vulcan besides its placement in the 6th house but its probability being in Libra is confirmed through its link to Moon/Venus/Mars/Uranus through rulership/dispositor link ) I am emphasising this to you as I seek to have you note, during this coming year the points of crisis in your life which are outcome of the pressure to serve.
When we look at the progressions/transits we see the Solar Arc Mars conjunct the natal Uranus in Scorpio in August 1935 and in the same month the Transiting Mars in Scorpio is making conjunction to it. It indicates the opportunity to change the rhythm ( Uranus ) of the personality ( Mars ) through some critical experiences involving relationship/partnership and thus implement the fusion/marriage of the Soul/personality ( the conjunction is in the 7th house ). This is further emphasised by the entry of the progressed Mars in the 7th house, in February 1936 ( could we have a more or less correct chart ? ) and confirming the tests ( Mars rulership of Scorpio ) to be faced through the impending relationship envisioned for him by DK. The Transiting Uranus conjunct the natal Moon on and off until April 1936 and adding to the dynamics of change of rhythm of the lunar lords. It also points to some unexpected change/disruption which could shake the foundation ( Moon is the exoteric ruler of the IC ) of his life related to relationships ( Uranus is the esoteric ruler of the 7th house ). The progressed Saturn conjunct the progressed South Node indicates a facing of a past karma. In August 1935 the progressed Vertex conjunct the above Solar Arc Mars/natal Uranus, and thus further confirming the karmic importance of this issue.

An increased momentum in service and a more rapid spiritual reaction at all times should constitute the major emphasis from now on. Go forward, therefore, with the same work as outlined in the previous instructions; during the next six months take as your seed thoughts for meditation three sentences out of that earlier teaching:
Transfigure life in terms of accomplishment. True accomplishment involves a life of steady radiance.
There must ever be crises of achievement which will draw upon the full resources of the soul. These must be demanded by the personality.
Understand the technique of an aligned personality, for the extremity of the disciple in service draws out finally the interest of the soul.
These seems to be the issues related to the training for the 3rd initiation which we have already touched upon. Just to add that the Soul Ray planet Jupiter ( 2nd Ray Soul ) is trine the Sun ( personality ) and Venus ( the Soul ) is their exoteric and esoteric dispositor. Jupiter, as the hierarchical ruler of Virgo, ruling the 6th house of service, and being the highest energy level ( as hierarchical ruler ), hints that only the extremity of service will draw the attention of the Soul. The progressed Moon ( esoteric ruler of the 6th house ) is in opposition to the progressed Jupiter ( the hierarchical ruler of the 6th house ) and both square the progressed MC and thus point to the increase of service. The Solar Eclipse on the progressed Venus on December 1935, Transiting Jupiter in Sagittarius entering the 9th house and the progressed Moon entry in Sagittarius bring the focus on the increase of vision, revelation and the Ajna centre.
You will ponder upon these ideas during the coming months, remembering that they embody your needed lesson and your ultimate achievement. ( this could indicate the 3rd initiation, as his ultimate achievement ) .

June 1936/DINA I/271,272,273,274.
A steady re-adjustment has gone forward in your life and in your grasp of the work essentials, and you have succeeded in freeing yourself inwardly from much of the detail work with which you have been confronted. ( the progressed Mars has left the 6th house of detailed work; the Solar Arc Mars conjunction to natal Uranus in August 1935 has done its work ) This was my desire; in the future, you can do much towards an aspect of my work which makes the rest of it possible. I refer to the financing of the work which I have planned. ( Mars, the exoteric and esoteric ruler of the 8th house of financial resources square Venus, Moon in Taurus, Venus conjunct Uranus ( rulers of Libra – money ) in Scorpio ( ruling the 8th house), Pluto ( ruler of Scorpio) in the 2nd house of money trine Mercury ( the hierarchical ruler of Scorpio ) Cooperating with those who are endeavouring to procure the needed funds for the work to be done during the next few years ( the progressed Moon entered the 8th house in March 1936 and stays there until April 1938; Transiting Uranus enters the 2nd house in April 1942 and the progressed Sun enters the 8th house in October 1946 ) will strengthen you inwardly and eliminate that fear ( Moon – the seat of fear - its sign ( Taurus ) points to the cause of fear – that of problem of values and right use of money; Moon opposition Venus) which still tinctures much that you do. This fear to which I refer is not due to lack of courage as is to fear of definite action, of clear speech where individuals are concerned, where the need is for a direct appeal and a straight presentation of the facts is warranted. ( 2/4 Rays in combination with Libra indicate indirect approach; Venus/Neptune/Chiron triangle); the need for the 1st Ray energy ( Uranus as the Hierarchical ruler of Aries ) This fear is being overcome; ( the activation by progressions/transits of the Venus/Neptune/Chiron and Venus/Saturn/Chiron triangles over the past two years has done its work ) for this I have much commendation for you because this fear went down into the very roots of your being; ( IC/4th house ( the roots of being ) is ruled by Cancer ( Moon/Neptune are the exoteric/esoteric rulers – Moon is in Taurus and Neptune in the 2nd house – showing that the fear is very much related to the problems of money/values ) it is basic in the form life (Cancer is the Fire by Friction, the 3rd aspect – the builder of form and the foundation )and also in the specialised activity of the second ray type ( here we have an interesting hint to the 3rd aspect of the 2nd Ray – that of detailed unity, meticulous entirety and detailed occult knowledge which seems to be related to the 3rd aspect of nature/3rd Ray/form and in his case we see here the link to his Mars in Virgo ( problem with physical body ) and the strong 6th house. Moon is the esoteric ruler of Virgo ( detailed/factual knowledge ) , Mars is in its fall in Cancer where the Moon is the exoteric ruler. Moon is exalted in Taurus where the form has a strong control ) and is coincident with your second ray ability to react sensitively to others. It is, therefore, a problem to you of peculiar difficulty, as it is a soul expression and not a personality one. ( now we are able to see more clearly how the problem is related to the soul expression and if we take Venus as representing the Soul we see the importance of the two above mentioned triangles ( Venus/Neptune/Chiron – the closest relation of energies in the chart and Venus/Neptune/Saturn ) and the wound ( Chiron ) which needs to be healed ( Chiron in Virgo, in the 6th house ) is related to the 3rd aspect/3rd Ray ( his biggest problem was his physical body, ruled by the 3rd Ray ) Rest much this summer; ( Libra – sign of interlude/peace, Chiron ( healing the wound) be much out of doors and lay the foundation ( Cancer IC )for work in the coming winter months by much quiet thinking in the open air. ( hint to the Buddhi/intuition –
Neptune ), this last sentence also reflects the Venus/Neptune/Chiron triangle and by progression the progressed Chiron square the progressed AS and Solar Arc Moon, and the Transiting Chiron is conjunct the progressed AS/S. Arc Moon and square the progressed Chiron, and thus indicating the healing process. We note that the Solar Arc Moon is within an orb of conjunction to the progressed AS for a number of years, pointing to the importance of the resolution of the problem of the form/physical body ( Moon ) being part of the Soul purpose ( AS ). The Transiting Uranus opposition natal Uranus and the S. Eclipse on the Solar Arc Uranus ( Dec. 1936 ) point to the change/release from restrictions and also to the impending disruptions related to relationships/partnerships ( Uranus is the esoteric ruler of the 7th house ).
PROGRESSED CHART JANUARY 1937.
January 1937/DINA I/274
You are responsive to much teaching upon the inner side and a form of definite reflective intercourse has been established between
A. Your inner, psychical nature. – Mercury/Neptune - Mind
B. Your soul. - Venus
C. Your brain. –Saturn/Moon
D. ( we see here again the triangle Venus/Saturn/Neptune )
This should be gradually developed and cultivated. It is one of the major integrating forces and an adjuster of right conditions.
There is only one thing that perhaps I might at this time emphasise for you and I can do it best in certain occult sentences which I have chosen for you and which take the form of four dynamic injunctions. If you grant them an obedient acquiescence and an intelligent understanding of their meaning, that obedience will increase your vibratory rate and, consequently, your magnetic influence. It will also hasten or quicken your practical output upon the physical plane and enhance your value in the work which you, as a member of the New Group of World Servers, ( this confirms that he has passed the 2nd initiation as one needs to be 2nd Degree initiate to be a member of the NGWS ) are seeking to do. Let me phrase them for you without comment:
See your outlines clear and let no haze ( Neptune/glamour/illusion ) of any kind veil the sharpness of their contours. Pluto conjunct
Neptune – destroying the glamour/illusion; Transiting Pluto conjunct the Solar Arc Neptune
Let both aspects of the truth emerge within your consciousness – the good, the bad, the true, the false, the real and the illusion. Face both, for both are facts - the one in time and space and the other in eternity. Libra/Taurus/Scorpio/Sagittarius – 4th Ray and its tendency to vacillation and ambivalence; there must be a constant call for intensification and dynamic expression ( Aries AS ) of the 4th Ray ( Mercury, the esoteric ruler of AS in Libra ) and facing the facts – Saturn conjunct Mercury, Mars in Virgo;
Live on the mountain top ( Capricorn ) and walk there with your brothers. ( Transiting Jupiter – esoteric ruler of the 11th house of group brother – conjunct the Capricorn MC )Thus keep the vision ( Ajna – Venus; Sagittarius ( sign of vision ) – Jupiter is the exoteric ruler ) clear above the fogs ( Neptune ), Venus quincunx
Neptuneof earth. ( Saturn ) – Saturn/Neptune/Venus triangle; by progression Jupiter Solar Arc square natal Saturn – need for right judgment
Fear not to speak the truth, whatever it be. ( Mercury trine Pluto ) You love enough.
When we look at the progressions/transits we see the progressed Moon conjunction to progressed Mercury and both in opposition the natal Pluto. This is an important aspect as it is echoing the natal Mercury trine Pluto and also its importance in view of the above comments. This is very much 4th Ray combination of energies ( Moon/Mercury transmit the 4th Ray and Pluto rulership of Scorpio which transmits the 4th Ray ) but Pluto also brings the 1st Ray in its destructive power. It calls for the achievement of clarity of mind and a balanced point of view by destruction/elimination of false illusions. The progressed Moon sextile natal Mercury ( 4th Ray energies ) emphasises the same issue – that of clear intuitive perception.
In January 1937 there is an interesting line – up of planets by progression and transit – Progressed Sun exactly sextile progressed Chiron ( in the natal chart Sun/Chiron are in contra- parallel ) and this sextile is being aspected by Transiting T- Square of Saturn/Neptune/Chiron ( this T- Square echo the same triangle present in the natal chart, if we allow 1 Degree 26 for the semisextile of Saturn/Chiron ). It indicates a healing process ( Chiron ) or lifting of the veil of the ego or I – ness/ahamkara ( Sun ) to bring the Christ consciousness or Buddhi ( Neptune ) into outer expression ( Saturn ). The June 1937 Solar Eclipse on the progressed AS heralds the major impending changes in his life direction.
PROGRESSED CHART JULY 1937.
July 1937/DINA I/275.
Your mental body is on the fourth ray; hence your power to harmonise and to avert conflict, ( this is a very much the Libra quality of the 4th Ray ) thus acting as a calm centre in the whirlpool of activity with which you are surrounded. This is your dominant contribution to the work; I would have you ponder on this and intensify your effort to play this part and above all to play it dynamically.
Your emotional body is upon the second ray and your development along this line is sound and good. This indicates that the 2nd initiation has been taken.
Your physical body is on the third ray; it is here that your major problem lies. It is closely connected with your mental problem ( it is interesting that Mars, ruling the Physical body, is the only planet in the chart in the last or mental decanate. which is that of an increased dynamism. The dynamic power of your soul must pour through your fourth ray mind, galvanising it into a renewed, inclusive, loving, harmonising activity. ( the line of least resistance for the soul to express itself is through the 2nd Ray Astral body but in order to make the mind more dynamic, it has to focus in the Mental body and then through the mind to control or awaken the physical body into coordinated activity in line with its ( soul ) purpose ) Be more outgoing ( as a part of your self-initiated training ) to those, for instance, with whom your daily lot is cast. ( Mars ( the physical body ), in the 6th house ( the everyday life ) trine Jupiter ( the Soul Ray planet ) They need help. Give them of that help freely and fully. The third Ray of Activity which governs your physical body is unduly quiescent ( Mars is in the Taurus decanate of Virgo, in the Cancer Duad – we see here a link between Mars and Moon ( esoteric ruler of Virgo ) in Taurus, emphasising the heavy/tamasic aspect of matter. Both planets rule the lunar lords ) and should be awakened by the soul to increased coordinated purpose. ( Mars semisquare Venus ( the Soul ), Venus is in its fall in Virgo and Mars is the exoteric and esoteric dispositor of Venus in Scorpio – again we see here the powerful link of energies between the Soul and physical body ) You will, from this tabulation, notice the relation existing between your personality ray and your mental ray and that between the ego and the emotional body. These indicate for you lines of least resistance. We will go in more details about this topic in the esoteric interpretation of the chart.
Looking at the progressions/transits, we see the Solar Arc Jupiter ( the Soul Ray planet ) opposition the natal MC, indicating the increase/expansion of the group work ( Jupiter is the esoteric ruler of the 11th house ) but also a happy/joyful change in his life direction, and more clear/expanded vision and future revelation ( Jupiter is the exoteric ruler of the 9th house ). The progressed Moon opposition the progressed AS indicates a change in his home environment and his ashramic work ( Moon is the exoteric ruler of the 4th house – home/Ashram ) and also in his service work ( Moon is the esoteric ruler of the 6th house ). The S. Eclipse in June 1937 on the progressed AS and the S. Eclipse on the progressed Mercury ( the esoteric ruler of the AS ) in December 1937, further emphasise the impending change in his life direction. The Solar Arc Mars on the Venus/Uranus midpoint in November 1937 gives the hint to the nature of the change – that of sudden falling in love. The transiting Saturn entry into Aries and its first opposition to the natal Sun in Libra indicates a beginning ( Aries ) of difficult issues to be faced in his own personal life and those he is intimately involved with ( Sun rules the 5th house of love affairs, personal/spiritual love ).
PROGRESSED CHART JANUARY 1938.
January 1938/DINA I/276,277,278
You see yourself more clearly now and know yourself, for you have the various aspects of yourself more definitely visioned ( the last year progressions/transits done their work ) – the good, the bad, the true, the false, the real and the illusion. This clear vision ( Ajna – the progressed Venus in Capricorn ) – envisaging some aspects hitherto unrealised – will necessitate your living on the mountain top,( Capricorn ) and in the clear air there to be found ( this could imply the higher mental plane where he stands as the Observer ) to see life true, your task and your co-disciples as they are. You have needed this more definite discovery of yourself in order to advance towards greater usefulness. Some of this knowledge has come to you during the past year, ( it means more revelation is to come ) awakening you to certain values, revealing to you many hidden things (8th house Scorpio of deep psychological issues , Pisces 12th house of hidden, unconscious forces - both are ruled by Pluto, the planet of revelation. Last year the progressed Mercury ( the esoteric ruler of AS) was in opposition to the natal Pluto ) - within yourself and others, and consequently bringing into your life new complications and emerging personal difficulties. ( Transiting Saturn opposition to the Libra Sun/Mercury/Saturn and then conjunction to the natal AS ) I shall have more to say to you later when the adjustments necessary to your chosen change of circumstance and of life have been made and quiet has settled down again.( this tells us that DK knows he will leave the group but will return again ) These periods of upheaval and re-adjustment come at times – sometimes soul induced and sometimes as personality events. They must be lived through, the veiled lessons learnt and the possible expansions of consciousness ( initiations ) induced. We facilitate or hinder these expansions by the moves we make; we hasten or delay our growth by our enacted decisions. The true disciple, however, proceeds upon his way at any cost and naught can arrest his progress on the Path.( hint that he should not let the relationship distract or take him away from his work in the group ) Deepen your consecration and put first thing first. ( he must put his priorities right – which involves right sense of values ( Taurus ) Let nothing and no one stand between you, the vision, the Plan and your fellow disciples. ( now clear message as to what was only a hint before ) Prepare for complications in your life, ( Solar Arc Mars conjunct the progressed Uranus ( the esoteric ruler of the 7th house ), Solar Arc Uranus conjunct the progressed Moon ) for now you travel not alone. ( Venus progressed ( exoteric ruler of the 7th house of partnerships ) trine the natal Moon ( exoteric ruler of the 4th house of past karmic ties ); the progressed Moon conjunct the Solar Arc Venus; the progressed Moon conjunct progressed Venus ; the Solar Arc Mars conjunct the natal Venus ( this aspect is exact in January 1940 ). As your work may grow and its boundaries extend, you will be faced increasingly with the perplexities and difficulties incident upon human relationships. ( in the years ahead the Transiting Jupiter/Saturn through Aries/Taurus 12/1st houses in opposition to the natal/progressed planets in Libra/Scorpio in the 6/7 houses; in 1941, the transiting Jupiter/Saturn/Uranus are all in Taurus in the 1st house, in opposition to the natal/progressed planets in Scorpio in the 7th house ) These must be handled with impersonality, love and silence.
When we look at the rest of the progression for this year ( 1938 ) we see some further powerful and significant contacts or line up of energies.
The Solar Arc Pluto square the natal AS indicate a major transformation in his personal/spiritual life of a karmic nature ( Pluto is the esoteric ruler of the 12th house of unredeemed karma ), representing an important test ( Pluto rulership of Scorpio 8th house ) and new revelation. This is an important aspect because in the natal chart Pluto is the only planet aspecting the AS ( by semisquare ) – that is if we have the correct chart. My rectification was greatly guided by this particular aspect which I considered of great importance as it relates to his major karmic test related to a relationship ( see the justification points for choosing this chart ).
The progressed Vertex is in opposition to the natal Pluto ( echoing the close natal Vertex/Pluto trine ) and confirming the fatal/unavoidable ( Vertex ) karmic tests.
The progressed AS aspecting the progressed Nodes and trine the progressed Saturn add further to the importance and the turning point in his life direction. The transiting Saturn opposition the natal Saturn in Libra shows he was making a major decision of his life. The transiting Saturn entry into Aries, starting with the opposition to the Libra Sun ( Sun rules the 5th house of love affairs ) add seriousness and karmic implications ( natal Saturn in Libra semisquare Venus, the exoteric ruler of the 7th house ) to the issues involved.
The transiting Jupiter trine the natal Sun and conjunct the progressed MC bring some happiness/joy the relationship must have brought for him but the Transiting Uranus opposition the natal Venus and the transiting Saturn opposition the natal Mercury ( the esoteric ruler of the natal AS ) together with the other powerful aspects proved too difficult for him to handle and he decided to leave the Tibetan’s group work.
