Seven Rays and Introduction to Esoteric Astrology with Eva Smith
Morya Federation Webinars for Students
The Seven Rays constitute a most important component of Esoteric Psychology. All life including all kingdoms are conditioned by the Seven Rays, whether it be an animal, a tree, a human, an organisation, a city or nation. Every unit of the human race is on some one of the seven rays. Therefore, some one colour predominates, and some one tone sounds forth. Every human being is swept into manifestation on the impulse of some ray, and is coloured by that ray quality, which determines his form and indicates the way that he should go. A ray confers physical conditions, the quality of the emotional nature, and the distribution of energy giving a predisposition to certain strengths and weaknesses. It gives the human being his colouring and quality. The personality shifts from ray to ray, from life to life, until all qualities are developed. While this process of soul control is being perfected, the ray types of the personality vehicles steadily emerge, the ray of the personality begins to control, and the soul ray begins finally to infuse the personality. The soul ray is an indicator of one’s life purpose, and greatly contributes to the type of service the individual is destined to offer. In these webinars students learn about the fundamentals of the rays, their influence, interplay and role in the spiritual progress of the human being; the cosmic origin of the seven rays, their descent to Earth and their expression in human psychology (the seven ray-types of human beings).
Esoteric Astrology gives a larger perspective of life; that we are not just inhabiting a little planet on its own in the solar system, but participating as an energy centre within a greater solar life. It describes the qualities and energies of these living beings thereby allowing comprehension, and also understanding of how they interact with each other. Astrology is essentially the science of energies. The zodiacal constellation receives and transmits energy from cosmic sources to a corresponding planet in our solar system, and the Sun, Moon and planets in turn receive and transmit these energies to Earth and its inhabitants. The energy body of a human being is at the receiving end of these energy transmissions, which then have an impact upon him. Astrology describes the psychology and patterns in one’s life.

This webinar discusses when the re-orientation from clockwise to anti-clockwise occurs and what is learned in each case.
