THE PROPOSED CHART
JUSTIFICATION FOR THE CHART.
1. The information available to us was her name – Betty Harris and her date of birth
– 2nd September 1889, no time or place of birth.
was given as a country of origin so
London was taken as the place of birth.
3. The only background information, inferred from the Tibetan’s instructions ( 572/DINA II ), is that she belonged to the high society or social set and had a business in luxury goods ( 571/DINA II ).
4. When looking at the chart we see that Uranus is the only planet placed in the sign ( Libra ) it rules esoterically. This brings the focus upon the spiritual quality which that planet represents. In this case it is the awakening aspect ( DINA I/324 ) and the vital energy which makes things to be. ( DINA I/321 )
5. Uranus conjunct Vertex ( point of fate or an important/unavoidable mission in life ) further emphasises the importance of the energies/qualities represented by Uranus to be used in service in this incarnation.
6. On page 321/DINA I we read: “ This faculty “to bring through,” ( the vital energy ) you began to demonstrate last spring. “ ( the Solar Arc Uranus opposition the natal AS in March 1931 ).
7. Uranus is placed in the 6th house ( service, discipleship training ) and also rules this house esoterically. It rules exoterically the 11th house ( group service ). On page 324/DINA I we read: …”one of the wisest and of the most educational things you have ever done is to start this group which you now instruct and teach. It is not the teaching aspect which is primarily yours but the awakening aspect ( Uranus ).”
8. And on page 321: “ Let your service be group service ( Uranus sesqui-quadrate Pluto ( the esoteric ruler of the 11th house ) and not so much individual ( Leo ) work ( 6th house );
9. Venus ( exoteric ruler of the 6th house and exoteric dispositor of Uranus ) is in Leo ( she had a business in luxury goods, most probably fashion ); On page 571/DINA II we read: “ Because your creative enterprise deals with the luxuries of life, you need to offset it with an equally potent expression – again on the physical plane ( Venus, esoteric ruler of the AS, in the 4th house ( physical plane ) and Neptune/Pluto, the exoteric/esoteric rulers of the 11th house of group service, in the 1st house ( physical plane ) – of your service to your fellowmen. “
10. Venus ( esoteric dispositor of Neptune and Pluto ) sextile and parallel
Neptune; it is the exoteric dispositor of Uranus and Uranus sesqui-quadrate Neptune and Pluto. This interrelation of energies provides the basis for their potential expression through group service and also through personal enterprise.
11. In addition to this, Mercury ( the exoteric dispositor of Neptune, Pluto and Sun and exoteric ruler of the AS ) is trine Neptune and Pluto and sextile Venus ( the exoteric dispositor of Mercury ). This provides for the expression of the mind in business. On page 572/DINA II we read: “ The world of competitive business and the struggle with the financial situation ( Mercury in Libra ( money ) is the exoteric ruler of the 2nd house of money ) calls for all the resources of your lower mind ( Mercury ) and this strengthens and brings your mind into practical effectiveness. “ ( Mercury, on the cusp of the 6th house, trine the MC and AS ).
12. Gemini is the sign of communication, speech, the concrete mind, building of the Antahkarana and bridging the personality integration and personality/soul fusion. On page 340/DINA I we read: “ Your intuitional grasp of reality and of truth is far ahead of the average ( Neptune ( the esoteric ruler of the 3rd house ) in Gemini, conjunct the AS and is trine Mercury and sextile Venus – the exoteric and esoteric rulers of the AS ). It is for this reason that your soul has led you into places where ( in the competitive life of mankind ) your lower mind ( Mercury ) must perforce function and thus the gap between the two major factors in your life ( the higher intuitive mind ( Mercury/Neptune ) and the astral – emotional nature ( Venus/Neptune ) can be bridged ( Gemini ), thus letting in the illumining control of the lower mind, plus normal concrete thinking. “
13. On page 340 - 1/DINA I we read: “ My aim is to let you know the purpose of your present life activity. The real aim of your soul ( AS – the Soul’s purpose ) is bridging work ( Gemini ) and the achievement of clear-sighted control over a powerful personality, ( Sun in Capricorn decanate of Virgo, ruler of the 5th house and in the 5th house of self expression/identity, square Pluto in the 1st house of personal identity ) thus leading you to face yourself as you are and to make the needed changes. “ [ Difficulty to see clearly [ Neptune in Gemini, conjunct the AS ( not sure of true identity ) opposition Moon veiling Neptune ] and to rightly judge/decide [ Mercury, the exoteric ruler of the AS and the exoteric dispositor of the Sun ( personality ), in Libra, square Jupiter and semisquare Mars ( over-estimation, exaggeration ].
14. On page 572/DINA I we read: “ In your case, this situation is peculiarly ordained by the soul ( AS – Soul’s purpose ) in order to bring about a needed bridging ( Gemini ) between your powerful astral nature and your definitely illumined intuition. “ ( Venus, the esoteric ruler of the AS, sextile Mercury and Neptune; and Mercury trine Neptune ).
15. Capricorn MC feels right from two points. First, she was involved in business/creative enterprise ( Saturn in Leo, in the 5th house ). This compliments the placement of the Sun ( as the ruler of Leo ) in the Capricorn decanate of Virgo, thus bringing into focus the use of the mind in business ( Mercury/Saturn as rulers of Virgo/Capricorn ).
16. Second, Capricorn ( and the MC ) represents the Mental plane and mental polarisation. On page 338/DINA I we read: “ Keep the vision clear ( Ajna – Venus in relation to Capricorn ), my brother, and live upon the mountain top. “ ( MC/Capricorn ). She was told to study and also to gather personality ( 339 ) and soul energy into the mind and to work from the place of mental power, without loosing the intuitive ability.
17. MC represents the Life objective/Purpose/Dharma and thus indicating that she was working towards mental polarisation ( to be achieved in the future lives ) through the process ( in this incarnation ) of using the concrete mind ( subordinated to both – feeling and intuition ) in business and thus bridging ( Gemini ) the astral and buddhic nature. Her great intuitive grasp of truth ( Neptune/Venus/Mercury ) needed to be anchored ( IC - 4th house Cancer ) or take a due form upon physical plane ( Neptune, the esoteric ruler of Cancer, in the 1st house, opposition to the Moon, the exoteric ruler of Cancer ) and through its power to transmute feeling ( Venus ) into understanding ( Neptune – buddhic understanding ).
November 1931/DINA I/321,322
Make your meditation definite and then anchor yourself to earth by certain specific activities, carried through to completion. [ grounding of ideas ( Cancer ), difficulty in focussing with clarity and accuracy ideas ( Neptune in Gemini ) upon the physical plane ( Neptune in the 1st house ); finishing what was started which Gemini finds difficult; Cancer rules the 3rd house ( meditation) and Moon/Neptune ( the orthodox and esoteric rulers of Cancer ) are in opposition.
Neptune in Gemini semisquare Chiron in Cancer, in the 3rd house ( the closest aspect in the chart ), indicates the healing/correcting process needed, by bringing through the vital energy ( Chiron square Uranus in the 6th house ( healing ). The Solar Arc Chiron conjunct the progressed Saturn and the transiting Saturn in aspect to the natal Chiron/Neptune/Uranus triangle helping to stabilise and anchor the energies.
The progressed Moon ( orthodox ruler of the 3rd house ) entered Cancer ( embodied ideas in physical manifestation ). The transiting Pluto conjunct the natal and progressed Chiron in the 3rd house ( meditation/antahkarana ), is bringing up to the surface the healing energies of Chiron to be used in the correcting/integrative process. ]
… remember that the gift of power in meditation and the capacity to bring through the vital energy [ Sun contra-parallel Uranus ] which makes things to be ( which you can do ) produces increasing detachment from physical plane realities; [ The progressed Sun ( ruler of the 5th house of self-expression/vitality ) conjunct the progressed Uranus; the Solar Arc Moon square the progressed Uranus; the Transiting Uranus opposition to the natal Uranus and approaching opposition to the progressed Sun/Uranus conjunction; the Solar Eclipse in October 1931 fell near the natal Uranus; transiting Uranus semisquare the natal AS.
This strong emphasis on Uranus brings focus on the vital energy/etheric body ( ruled by Gemini/Aquarius/Uranus ). The Etheric body is the initiator of all physical activity and through it the personality or Soul expression become evident upon physical plane. Intense inner life produces more vital life of service ( Uranus is the esoteric ruler of the 6th house of service and is placed in the 6th house ) To be the embodied qualities ( or divine attributes ) is to live in spiritual being and live that qualities in active service and that will produce increasing detachment ( Uranus exaltation in Scorpio ) from physical plane. ]
It can produce also the severing [ Uranus sextile Mars ] of lower contacts unless the energy is carried through on to the plane of earth happenings and works out in paralleling action. [ Saturn conjunct Mars ]
This faculty “ to bring through, “ [ the vital energy ] you began to demonstrate last spring. It should continue. [ the Solar Arc Uranus opposition the Gemini AS in April 1931; the Solar Arc Moon square the progressed Uranus in
Carry your thought in meditation to the throat centre [ Saturn ] at the back of the neck and each day vitalise that centre so that the creative work is carried forward by you and you continue to cause things to be. [ transiting Saturn square the natal and progressed Uranus ( vitality ). ]
The lesson of Being is not your lesson at present; it must be the lesson of selfless acting upon the physical plane. [ strong Leo emphasis ( Venus/Mars/Saturn in Leo ) brings the focus on identity/self – from the lowest to the highest ( Sun rules Leo on all three levels ).
Sun is in the 5th house ( creative self expression of self centred individual/selfishness or creative expression of the Soul/selflessness ), in Capricorn decanate of Virgo ( practical application of ideas to fulfil material/spiritual ambition ).
Saturn ( the normal and also the esoteric ruler ) of the Capricorn decanate, is placed in Leo ( in its detriment ), in the 5th house and indicates a spiritual opportunity to minimise or reduce ( detriment ) the power of the lower self ( Leo ) and increase the power of the higher Self and thus the emergence of true identity/essence. It reduces the vital expression of the Soul energies through the Etheric body, producing a lack of joy and self-confidence.
Saturn’s link of exaltation and hierarchical rulership of Libra brings it into relation to Uranus in Libra and Uranus hierarchical rulership of Leo brings Uranus into relation with Saturn in Leo; This hierarchical relation between Saturn and Uranus emphasising the triadal energies of being or realisation, causing the things to be or embodying the divine qualities and the transiting Saturn square the progressed Sun/Uranus conjunction brings this into focus. ]
Go forward with the ordinary routine work [ Virgo/6th house ] as I have outlined it for these members of my Ashram, and let your spiritual diary [ Mercury ] take for you the place of speech ( Gemini ); [ Lunar Eclipse in March 1932 on the natal Mercury ( on the cusp of the 6th house ), exoteric dispositor of the Virgo Sun and exoteric ruler of the Gemini AS; the progressed Moon , exoteric ruler of the 3rd house ( diary/writing ) square the natal Mercury; the Solar Arc Uranus, the esoteric ruler of the 6th house ( ordinary routine work ) trine natal Mercury ]
Strengthen the physical body and learn to avoid the taking on of those obligations which others can as properly handle. [ the Solar Arc Mars square the natal Jupiter; transiting Jupiter conjunct the natal Mars; the progressed Mars sesqui-quadrate the natal MC and Solar arc Mars trine the natal MC in March 1932 indicates an increased activity and over-doing things; transiting Saturn conjunct the natal MC ( taking extra responsibilities ) February/November 1932 ]
What hinders that can be sacrificed? Over-analysis [ Mercury/Jupiter; Virgo ] of the reactions of others to what you say and do and an over-focussing of your attention upon the results of what you say. [ Sun in Virgo ( analysis/facts/results ) in the 5th house ( self-expression ); Mercury ( the exoteric dispositor of the Sun ) square Jupiter, exoteric ruler of the 7th house ( other people ); the Solar Arc Mercury semisquare the natal Jupiter in July 1932 ]
You are not clear ( Neptune in Gemini ) as to the hindrances ( Saturn – decanate ruler of the Virgo Sun ) existing in your personality ( Sun square Neptune ) This is partly because your knowledge ( Mercury – orthodox ruler of Gemini/Virgo ) of the mechanics of that personality is less than that of the majority of my disciples because you have less academic knowledge. [ Gemini/3rd house; Chiron in the 3rd house points to the wound/weakness in the academic knowledge ]
Avoid the glamour [ 6th Ray ] which comes from realisation of pure motive [ Neptune/buddhic quality ] – and that you have. [ Neptune conjunct the AS brings strong 6th Ray influence and its sextile to Venus ( the esoteric ruler of the AS ), trine Mercury ( exoteric ruler of the AS ) and in opposition Moon ( the exoteric ruler of the 3rd house – the concrete mind/communication ), points to lack of clarity/precision in seeing the truth as it is, even though the motive is pure. This is further emphasised by the parallel between Moon/Venus/Neptune ]
Your brain ( Saturn ) and soul ( Venus ) have close alliance. [ Even though there is no aspect between Venus and Saturn, they are both in Leo and their dispositor is the Sun in Virgo where Venus is in its fall and Saturn is the decanate ruler. Mercury ( the exoteric dispositor of the Sun ) is in Libra, where Saturn is exalted and also the hierarchical ruler and Venus is the orthodox ruler. Mercury is also the exoteric dispositor of Vulcan ( the Soul Ray planet ) in Virgo and of
Neptune ( the Personality Ray planet ) in Gemini. The orthodox ruler of the Sun sign ( Mercury ) and the esoteric ruler of the AS ( Venus ) are in sextile. This points to a close relation not only between the brain and the Soul but also between the personality and the Soul.
A high grade astral body ( Mars/Neptune ) acts oft as a distorter ( 6th Ray ) where your vision ( Ajna/Venus ) of character ( identity/self – Leo ) is concerned. [ Mars and Venus in Leo ( Leo rules the Astral permanent atom ) points to a strong emotional body. Mars trine Moon ( veiling Neptune ) and Neptune, the esoteric ruler of Leo ( as it is veiled by the Sun ) conjunct the AS and Moon opposition to
Neptune, all point to strong 6th Ray conditioning the astral body ]
In utter self-forgetfulness, therefore, know yourself ( the progressed Mercury ( exoteric ruler of the Virgo Sun ) conjunct the progressed Sun in October 1932 ) and serve. Be silent ( Silence/stillness is the Integration formula for the 6th Ray personality ) towards your personality. [ this points to a process of decentralisation ]
JUNE 1933/DINA I/322,323
Only one vital thing stands in the way of a life of utter usefulness and that is the sixth ray quality of your personality.[ Neptune, the Personality Ray planet, in the 1st house, conjunct the AS, opposition Moon ( veiling Neptune ) and both square Sun in Virgo where Moon ( veiling Vulcan/Neptune ) is the esoteric ruler. Mercury, the exoteric dispositor of both, Sun and Neptune, trine
Neptune and semisquare Mars ( 6th Ray ). Mars trine Moon ( veiling Neptune ). Sun ( veiling Neptune ) is square Neptune.
We see a powerful interrelation of 6th Ray energies. Moon veiling Neptune indicates her strong astral/buddhic connection and Sun veiling
Neptune her preparation or taking in some future lives, of the 2nd initiation. [ the progressed Moon conjunct Chiron, semisquare Neptune in June 1933 indicates the opportunity for the healing/correcting process of the 6th Ray personality. The transiting Chiron conjunct the natal AS releasing the guiding spiritual energies of the Soul to heal the personality. ]
It is, as you know, the ray of devotion, of a fanatical idealism, of undue emphasis and this ray, when conditioning the personality, is apt to cause much trouble. The lesser light ( narrow vision, intolerant certainty of a point of view, attachment/dependency on others ) of that minor ray ( in itself, divine ) can shut out the full radiance ( spiritual impersonality/detachment, being, strength, wide/synthetic vision ) of your soul.[ 1st Ray ]The Solar Arc Venus ( Soul ) conjunct the progressed Mars ( personality ) in February 1934.
Your work in my group is known to you. It is twofold and that you also know. You can stand in the group as the embodiment of dynamic energy which, as I earlier told you, causes things to be. [ Uranus contra - parallel Sun ( veiling Neptune ) and sesqui-quadrate
Neptune and Pluto ]You can also stand as a tower of strength and let the strength of love [ 1st Ray Soul ] pour through you. [ Solar Arc Pluto square the natal Uranus in June 1933; Transiting Uranus opposition the progressed Sun ]
The progressed MC square the natal Moon in March 1933 and the Solar Arc Moon square the natal Vertex in December 1933 indicate the opportunity to face the past habits/karma standing in the way of progress upon the Way.
JUNE 1934/DINA I/323,324
For you, there come now some months of inner consolidation. [ Transiting Saturn opposition natal Saturn; the progressed Moon entered the 4th house ( anchoring, foundation, inner spiritual attunement ) in April 1934 ]
During these months, the high moments may perhaps cease and the work will go on with no startling import. …be grateful for the days of coming duty, of quiet living, of steadfast orientation towards the light, of silent communication with your soul, of study and of thought. [the transiting Jupiter conjunct the natal and progressed Uranus; the transiting Uranus trine the natal Jupiter; the progressed Moon conjunct the natal Venus and sextile the natal Mercury; the Solar Arc Mars conjunct the natal Mercury and sextile the natal Venus; the transiting Uranus square the natal Venus and quincunx the natal Mercury; This strong activation of the natal Mercury/Venus sextile ( exoteric/esoteric rulers of the AS and the 6/12 house polarity ( seclusion/everyday life ) points to the quiet life of reading/study/meditation. ]
The fiery force of your life is now one-pointedly directed towards your goal. The dynamic quality of your aspiration towards usefulness in service indicates energies which have been directed to the wish or the will to serve ( Vulcan in Virgo ). [ the Solar Eclipse on the natal Mars in August 1934; Mars ( 6th Ray one-pointed aspiration ) is the exoteric and esoteric ruler of the 6th house of service. ]
…these energies must be now used differently, and that dynamic will [ 1st Ray Soul ] must supersede dynamic longing [ 6th Ray Personality ] It is the will of the soul which must be brought into play for group ends and not the will and the aspiration of a high grade and consecrated personality. [ the transiting Neptune conjunct the natal Sun; the transiting Jupiter conjunct the progressed Sun; Neptune and Jupiter are the exoteric/esoteric rulers of the 11th house of group service; the progressed Sun conjunct the natal Vertex in November 1934 indicates an important opportunity to raise/correct ( 6th house Vertex ) the energy of the 6th Ray personality ( Sun ); the transiting Chiron conjunct the natal Neptune ( the personality Ray planet ) and the natal Pluto ( ruler of the 6/11 house of service ) further emphasises the healing/redirecting of the energies towards group service. ]
JANUARY 1935/DINA I/324, 325, 326
To you, I would say at this time that one of the wisest and one of the most educational things you have ever done is to start this group which you now instruct and teach. [ Uranus, the exoteric ruler of the 11th house ( groups ), is in the 6th house of discipleship training; Neptune, the other exoteric ruler of the 11th house, is in Gemini, conjunct the AS.
Uranus is the esoteric ruler of the 6th house and Neptune is the esoteric ruler of the 3rd house ( communication/education ); the Solar Arc Uranus in opposition the natal Neptune and sesqui-quadrate the natal Chiron ( guide/teacher ) in April 1935 and the Solar Arc Neptune conjunct the natal Chiron in July 1935; Transiting Chiron conjunct the natal Pluto ( ruler of the 6th house and esoteric ruler of the 11th house ) in April 1935 ]
Remember that your function as a teacher in no way resembles that of those who are on the second ray of love wisdom. It is not the teaching aspect which is primarily yours but the awakening aspect.[ Uranus ] …your prime function is to charge the group members with dynamic energy.[ Uranus sesqui-quadrate Neptune/Pluto ] The task of re-orienting [ the relation of Uranus exaltation in Scorpio ] people can be yours. Such is your task – to teach and vivify. [ the progressed Mercury conjunct the natal Uranus in May 1935 ]
And what, my brother, shall be for you the keynote of the coming months? I am impelled to give you just two words of practical import. They are gracious loving-kindness…[ Chiron semisquare Neptune/Pluto; transiting Chiron conjunct the natal Pluto and the Solar Arc Chiron square the natal Neptune ] for a first ray person they are ever difficult; The inner, dynamic and realised goodness of a first ray disciple can be marred by a haste and an outer quickness of speech and attitude. [ Mercury semisquare Mars; the Solar Arc Mars conjunct the natal Mercury in December 1934 ]
This is for you a preparatory period in which the qualities of your soul must be welded into those of the personality. In 1936 [ the progressed Vertex opposition the natal AS; the progressed Moon conjunct the natal Sun; the Solar Arc Moon conjunct the natal MC ] and particularly in 1937,[ the progressed Venus ( the esoteric ruler of the AS ) trine the natal MC; transiting Pluto conjunct the IC and enters the 4th house ( Ashram ) if the plans work out as desired and you go forward on the Way, the door of opportunity will stand wider open.[ the opportunity could be to move deeper into the Ashram and become more active participant in its life/activity ]
…guard more your health and take not on your shoulders more than your strength can suffice to carry. Rest more. [ the strong Chiron activation by progressions and transits; the Solar Arc Mars ( exoteric and esoteric ruler of the 6th house of health ) semisquare the natal Mars ( physical body ) in July 1935 ]
JULY 1935/DINA I/ 326,327,328
Now I call your attention to the necessity for that crystalline truthfulness and that precise accuracy which will release you increasingly from the prison of the lower self. [ the Solar Eclipse on the natal Jupiter ( truth ) in December 1935; transiting Jupiter opposition the natal AS in November 1935 and opposition the natal Neptune/Pluto in December 1935; ]
People who work as you could work upon the distinctly abstract levels [ Mercury, as the abstract mind, trine Neptune in Gemini ( where Mercury is the orthodox ruler ) ] of existence frequently have a difficulty in expressing the precision of truth.[ Neptune in Gemini, opposition Moon in Sagittarius ( where Mercury is in its detriment ); 2nd Ray Mind ] They lack, if I may so express it, the capacity to bring through into form and to build the concrete shell [ Cancer ] which can precisely express the idea.[ Cancer ( where the Moon is the orthodox ruler and Neptune the esoteric ruler ) rules the 3rd house ( practical intelligence/discipline or focus of the mind ); Chiron ( wound ) in Cancer ( form ) in the 3rd house ] This you also quite markedly lack; [the progressed Mercury square the natal Chiron in the 3rd house and sesqui-quadrate the natal Neptune ( the esoteric ruler of the 3rd house ) in August 1935; the Solar Arc Neptune square the progressed Mercury and conjunct the natal Chiron in July 1935; ]
This inability to express spiritual ideas [ Neptune ] in the right words [ Mercury ] has necessarily its counterpart in the limitations of your personality [ Sun in Virgo ] The ecstasy [ 6th Ray ] of divine knowledge [ Neptune; Mercury trine Neptune ] which you know at times and which fails of right expression in words,[ Neptune in Gemini ( Mercury is the orthodox ruler ) opposition Moon in Sagittarius ( where Mercury is in its detriment ); Neptune semisquare Chiron ( wound ) in Cancer ( where Moon/Neptune are the orthodox/esoteric rulers ) ] finds its inevitable counterpart in the exaggerated [ Jupiter ] detail [ Virgo ] of daily life [ 6th house ] when recounted. [ Mercury, the exoteric dispositor of the Virgo Sun, ( where Jupiter is in its detriment and Mercury is exalted ) square Jupiter in Sagittarius ( where Mercury is in its detriment ]
There is ever the tendency to continue the ecstasy ( known on abstract levels ) [ 6th Ray/Neptune ] into the concrete life on the physical plane [ 1st /4th houses ] As it is stepped down, it over-stimulates [ Jupiter ] other and lower aspects of the nature, and, therefore, removes itself further and further from the truth. Neptune, the esoteric ruler of the 4th house, in the 1st house;
During the coming year, brother of old, assume the task of watching with care every statement made and every attitude assumed, so as to negate all tendency to emotional misrepresentation. [ transiting Chiron opposition the natal Moon; transiting
Neptune conjunct the progressed Mars and Solar Arc Venus ]
Should you discover lack of precision in relation to those concerns which affect the lower man, remember that this inaccuracy is due to two things:
First, to your power to work on abstract levels, involving ecstatic realisation.[ Mercury/Venus/Neptune; 2nd Ray mind ] This reacts on the lower man [ personality – Sun sign ] and inclines him to over-emphasise [ Jupiter ] all details, [ Virgo ] and to exaggerate [ Jupiter ] the usual and the commonplace [ Virgo/6th house/Moon ] into the unusual and the rare.[ Aquarius/Uranus ] Mercury ( the exoteric dispositor of the Virgo Sun ) square Jupiter; Uranus ( the esoteric dispositor of Mercury ) in the 6th house, sesqui-quadrate Neptune; Moon opposition Neptune; the Solar Arc Neptune square the natal Uranus and the progressed Moon conjunct the natal Mars ( ruler of the 6th house ) in October 1935.
Secondly, to your innate humility [ 2nd Ray Mind ] which induces in you a tendency to reassure yourself [ Mercury in Libra ] constantly that you are on the Way and that all you do is in line with soul purpose.[
Gemini AS – Mercury sextile Venus ( the exoteric and esoteric rulers of the AS ) ]
The world of glamour[ 6th Ray; Astral plane/body ] which is the distorted reflection of the world of inspiration ( the intuitive buddhic plane ) [ Neptune ] then catches you and the truth,[ Jupiter/Sagittarius/9th house; Jupiter in Sagittarius trine Saturn ( ruler of the 9th house ] with its clarity of outline and precision [ 5th Ray/Leo; Venus and Saturn ( mental energy ) in Leo ] of detail,[ Virgo ] disappears into the mists of illusion.[ Sun in Virgo square Neptune and Moon ( veiling Neptune ) ] Then all objects and affairs loom too large and appear too important and too interesting. Hence the word “ exaggerated “[ Jupiter ] in connection with the watch that I want you to make over all words and descriptions.[ transiting Jupiter opposition the natal Neptune and AS and the Solar Eclipse on the natal Jupiter. ]
This self-imposed attention to true accuracy must be your most rigid discipline [ Saturn ] during the next year…[ transiting Saturn opposition the natal Sun ( self ) and conjunct the progressed MC ( Dharma ) ]
This inability to produce a true picture of things as they intrinsically are [ the T-Square Sun/Moon/Neptune ( Moon and Neptune are esoteric rulers of Virgo ) and to portray facts [ Virgo ] as they really exist, has militated against your power to materialise [ Chiron in Cancer, in the 3rd house ] that which is desired upon the physical plane and has caused you much concern and distress of mind. [ the 2nd Ray Mind tends to be imprecise and indefinite in expressing the truth and facts as they really exist and Neptune ( as esoteric ruler of the 3rd house of communication/words ) conjunct the AS supports this ]
You have ascribed this inability to the fact that probably you have needed to learn patience.[ Pisces – Neptune and Pluto ( orthodox and esoteric rulers/6th and 1st Ray ) in the 1st house, conjunct the AS ] But that is not a lesson that you need, brother of mine. [ we see that even though patience was one of her keywords, it was not what she needed to learn but what she needed to use as strength in group service ( Neptune/Pluto rule the 11th house ) as a part of her Soul’s purpose ( Neptune and Pluto conjunct the AS ) ]
Your weak point has been your inability to bring through the vision with accuracy. In order to do this you must learn to practice accuracy of thought and speech daily.[ transiting Saturn square the natal
Let your meditation [ Mercury ] take the form more and more of contemplation.[ Libra ] In order, however, safely to increase the length of time you can spend in contemplation, you must achieve an attitude of gentle unswerving intensity [ Neptune ] and not develop any further that powerful dynamic intensity [ Pluto ] which imposes ever a strain upon the brain cells. The progressed Mercury is Retrograde in Libra and is sesqui-quadrate the natal

JANUARY 1936/DINA I/328,329
…your real inner progress has been noted. You have stepped into clearer light and because of that progress you can shoulder greater responsibility [ Saturn ] in the future, provided that you hold the ground gained and loose nothing that has been revealed to you. The progressed Sun sextile the natal Saturn ( ruler of the MC ); transiting Saturn opposition the natal Sun and conjunct the progressed MC ( Dharma )
Definitely, I ask you to study and to do some strenuous mental work. [ the Solar Arc Mercury square the natal Mars in February 1936 ]
The manifestation of intuitive perception [
Neptune ]upon the physical plane is greatly aided by the effort [ Mars ] to read, [ Mercury ] to understand [ Venus/Mercury/Neptune ] and then to express that understanding in words. [ Gemini/Mercury ] The progressed Mars semisquare the natal Venus and Solar Arc Venus semisextile the natal Mars in May 1936. Transiting Saturn in aspect to these Venus/Mars progressions in April 1936.
This is never an easy task for a natural intuitive such as you are, but it is one that will bring high reward. [ Libra is a sign of intuitive perception and Mercury in Libra sextile Venus ( the orthodox ruler of Libra ) and both ruling the Gemini AS and in aspect to
Neptune in Gemini, indicate the importance to express the intuitive perception in practice. That is why her Soul put her into circumstances where she needed to use the mind in business and not only revel in ecstatic realisation on the abstract levels. This was an important learning process for her in this incarnation, in preparation for the 2nd initiation. Initiation is the demonstration of intuitive understanding put to practical expression.
This, my brother, is a year of crisis and, therefore, a year of intense strain upon all the disciples in the world. [ the progressed Vertex opposition the natal AS; the transiting Saturn/Neptune opposition in aspect to the progressed MC; the Solar Arc Nodes in aspect by conjunction and opposition to the natal Saturn. ]
JUNE 1936/DINA I/329, 330, 331, 332, 333
A new cycle is being entered upon by you, as it is by all in my group and for this you have been prepared and this you have earned. The cycle of activity in connection with the NGWS is a 3 year cycle and the end of such a cycle came in at the Full Moon in May 1936. [ transiting Pluto conjunct the IC and entered the 4th house ( Ashram ) in October 1936; transiting Jupiter conjunct the natal Jupiter; indication of greater integration into the group and the Ashram ( Jupiter/Pluto are the esoteric rulers of the 11th house of group work/brothers ) ]
On page 249/DINA I, in the instruction for August 1936 for IBS we are told that a new cycle began at the Full Moon in May with the keyword of integration conditioning it for the next few years. IBS had, like SCP, 1st Ray Soul, 6th Ray personality and 6th Ray Astral body and her lesson was also the achievement of liberation/impersonality from the “I” at the centre. It is interesting that her Sun was in Gemini, AS in Sagittarius and Moon in Leo and in the case of SCP the proposed AS is Gemini, Moon in Sagittarius and Venus, Mars and Saturn in Leo.
The problem with which you and R.S.U. [ II. III. 1,1, 7 ] have to deal and which you must eventually solve is, above everything else, the problem of decentralisation. There is in both of you an over-emphasis of the “ I “ at the centre of the stage. [ here we have an another disciple who was working at the same problem as SCP but from totally different angle of approach and effects as seen now from two different ray types and personalities.]
The progressed Moon has joined the transiting
Neptune in the 5th house ( decentralisation from the personal identity ) and conjunct the natal and progressed Saturn.
The emphasis upon the little self is, in your case, based upon three things:
A realised sense of divinity,[ Neptune ] of the beauty [ Venus ] of the life of the spirit, of truth [ Jupiter ] and of the power of your ray life.[ 1st Ray Soul ] It is due to the fact that you have – in past lives - achieved a fair measure of soul control.
We are not able to establish precisely the placement of Vulcan ( the Soul Ray planet ) but we can say that it is in Virgo, in the 5th house. The other 1st Ray planet, Pluto, is in Gemini, in the 1st house, conjunct the AS of the proposed chart. Both, the 1st and 5th house deal with the issues of identity.
The Personality Ray planet,
Neptune, is also in Gemini, in the 1st house ( pure being, real/authentic/Soul identity, ), conjunct Pluto and both conjunct the AS.
Venus ( the esoteric ruler of the AS ) is in the 4th house ( form in which the Soul anchors itself, the essence of the Soul brought from previous lives and its anchoring at present incarnation, spiritual foundation of life and inner spiritual attunement, the Ashram )
Venus conjunct the IC provides the clear sign of the need of the intuitive wisdom and light of the Soul to be grounded and expressed upon the physical plane.
Venus is in the sign of Leo ( self/soul-consciousness/identity ). Venus sextile Neptune ( the esoteric ruler of the 4th house ) and sextile Pluto, the esoteric ruler of the 11th house ( group-consciousness/identity )
Venus sextile Mercury, the esoteric ruler of the 12th house ( past karma, psychic sensitivity ), placed in the 5th house ( self/Soul expression, personal/Soul identity, the Causal body )and sextile the AS. The issues of identity are carried over from the past lives.
Mercury trine Neptune/Pluto and trine the AS ( Soul’s purpose for this and future lives )
This interrelation of energies in relation to the AS and strong emphasis on Identity ( from personal to universal ) and karmic/past lives link, points to a degree of Soul contact and Ashramic connection being achieved in the past lives.
A desire to impose upon the personality and to make the lower self to be in factual living what you know yourself to be on the higher soul levels. This is complicated by the desire that those you love should likewise recognise your divinity, your service and your power. Venus and Mars ( planets of desire ) in the sign of Leo (lower self ), the orthodox rulers of the 12th house ( past unredeemed karma ), in the 4th house ( karmic family ties, attachment to blood relations ). This indicates that the strong desire to be noticed/recognised and appreciated by the loved ones was carried over from the past lives of strongly established karmic ties.
Sun, Moon and Saturn could all be related to the personality. Sun in Virgo ( factual expression/living ) and Saturn in Leo ( self-importance ) are placed in the 5th house of children, creative self-expression and individual identity.
Saturn in Leo ( very strong 1st Ray placement ) is in its detriment and being the only planet in either exaltation, fall or detriment, it brings the focus on the energy/quality it represents. In this case it indicates the spiritual opportunity to minimise ( detriment ) the control of the lower self/will, of selfish desire and increase the control/power of the Higher Self/Soul and the emergence of true identity. It reduces the self-confidence and sensitivity to other but offers the spiritual opportunity to increase the faith in the fact of the Soul and the spiritual sensitivity to higher vibrations.
Moon in Sagittarius ( past habit of one-pointed pursuit of selfish goal ) or, when the veil lifts which hides in this case Neptune ( unerringly moving forward towards the vision/truth and buddhic understanding ).
Moon is in the 7th house of partnerships/relationships with others, right human relations, union of personality with the Soul.
Sun ( the dispositor of Venus/Mars/Saturn in Leo ) in T –Square with Moon, Neptune/Pluto provides the focus of energies to resolve or establish the true spiritual identity and put the Soul in the seat of control.
Being primarily astral-buddhic, [ 6th Ray ] demonstrating as intuitional [
Neptune ]development working out in a high emotional reaction,[ Moon opposition Neptune ]
your personality polarisation is emotional, [ Mercury ( 4th Ray ), in Libra ( 3rd Ray ), the orthodox dispositor of the Virgo ( 2/6 Rays ) Sun, trine Neptune ( esoteric ruler of Virgo, as veiled by the Moon ) and square Jupiter ( 2nd Ray ), the hierarchical ruler of Virgo, placed in Sagittarius ( 4,5,6 Rays ).
Moon ( 4th Ray ), the esoteric dispositor of the Sun ( 2nd Ray ), opposition Neptune ( 6th Ray )
Sun square the Moon in Sagittarius ( 4,5,6 Rays ), square Neptune in Gemini ( 2nd Ray ) and square Pluto ( 1st Ray ) in Gemini.
Neptune, the Personality Ray planet, is in Gemini.
This linkage of energies in relation to the Sun ( representing the personality ), indicates predominating
2/4/6 line of Rays and thus emotional polarisation of the personality.
even though you function, as a soul, on the power ray.[ 1st Ray ]
Neptune ( Personality Ray planet ) conjunct Pluto and both conjunct the AS.
You have, therefore, a consequent weakness in the mental polarisation. [ Chiron in the 3rd house, semisquare Neptune ( esoteric ruler of the 3rd house and dispositor of Chiron ) and square Uranus ( the occult mind ); Uranus sesqui-quadrate
Neptune. This Chiron/Neptune/Uranus triangle is the closest interrelation of energies in the chart and Neptune ( conjunct the AS ) emerges as the dominating astral-buddhic energy. ]
The Sun is in the Capricorn decanate of Virgo and Capricorn Duad. Mercury/Saturn ( orthodox rulers of Virgo/Capricorn ), are not in any aspect but Saturn is exalted in Libra and is the Hierarchical dispositor of Mercury thus raising the energy into the Spiritual Triad and towards mental polarisation ( her goal ).
The esoteric rulers of Virgo/Capricorn are Moon ( veiling
Neptune ) and Saturn. There is no aspect between Moon/Saturn but the very important link between them is in relation to the mental polarity of the 3rd house ( where the Moon is orthodox ruler and Saturn is in its detriment ) and the 9th house ( where Saturn is the orthodox and esoteric ruler and Moon is in its detriment ). It is an interesting point that the progressed Moon was conjunct the natal and progressed Saturn ( June/November 1936 ) at the time of this instruction.
Saturn is in the Aries decanate of Leo and Gemini Duad where Mercury is the orthodox ( Gemini ) and esoteric ( Aries ) ruler and the Sun (ruling Leo on all levels) is veiling
Neptune ( she is not mentally polarised and is preparing for 2nd initiation ).
Saturn is the orthodox and esoteric ruler of the 9th house ( higher mind ) and the MC ( Dharma/Spiritual Triad/Mental polarisation ).
Saturn is also the esoteric ruler ( as given by the Master DK ) of the middle decanate of Virgo. Saturn offers the spiritual opportunity to manifest or bring in form/anchor the Christ life or Divinity upon the physical plane. This entailed a major part of her lesson in this incarnation.
Mercury ( the planet in the lowest declination ), is in Libra decanate of Libra and Libra Duad, where Venus is the orthodox ruler and Uranus the esoteric ruler.
Uranus is also the esoteric dispositor of Mercury and is a part of the above mentioned triangle of Chiron/Neptune/Uranus, indicating the weakness in mental polarisation.
Uranus is in Aquarian decanate of Libra and Taurus Duad, where Uranus is the orthodox ( Aquarius ) and esoteric ruler ( Libra) and Venus is the orthodox (Taurus/Libra ) ruler and Vulcan ( Taurus ) the esoteric ruler.
Venus, the esoteric ruler of the AS, is sextile Mercury and Neptune and is part of the triangle of Mercury/Venus/Neptune, related to her realisation of divinity.
What emerges from the above mentioned points in relation to the weakness in mental polarisation is, that all the critical planets/triangles are involved in this interrelation of energies.
Uranus is the only planet in the sign it rules esoterically. Saturn is the only planet in detriment (no other planets in detriment, fall or exaltation ). Mercury is in the lowest declination and Venus is the esoteric ruler of the AS.
You, realising a measure of divinity, [ Neptune trine Mercury, sextile Venus and Venus sextile Mercury ] impose[ Pluto ] upon your personality [ Sun in Virgo ] in speech [ Mercury ] and desire[ Mars in Leo ] what you believe [Jupiter ] to be the effects of divinity. You over-estimate [ Jupiter square Mercury ( the orthodox dispositor of the Virgo Sun ] the capacity of the personality to respond to this. [ Mercury semisquare Mars; T-Square of Sun, Moon, Neptune/Pluto ]
She ( R.S.U. ), realising the same measure of divinity,[ Neptune square Mercury, quincunx Venus and Venus sextile Mercury ] is so conscious of the failure of the personality[ Saturn ( the orthodox dispositor of the Capricorn Sun ) conjunct Chiron/Neptune ] to express this, that she retires within herself [ Cancer AS ] and she there “ wallows “ in the sense of failure.[ Neptune ( esoteric ruler of Cancer ) conjunct Chiron ] This ability to see such failure and to sense at the same time the beauty of divinity is due to her mental polarisation[ Sun ( veiling Uranus ], ruler of the 3rd house, trine Saturn/Uranus/Pluto ] which enables her to cast the light of the mind in two directions.
RSU Sun is in Virgo decanate of Capricorn and Scorpio Duad ( SCP Sun is in Capricorn decanate of Virgo and Capricorn Duad ).
When we look at the orthodox/esoteric/ hierarchical rulers ( we will be discussing RSU chart on the next Full Moon ) of Virgo/Capricorn/Scorpio, the most powerful and significant relation we find is between the hierarchical rulers, respectively Jupiter/Venus/Mercury. This confirms ( among other things ) her mental polarisation and preparation for the 3rd initiation.
She is largely an expression of the higher or abstract mind,[ Venus ] invading the lower mind,[ Mercury ] via the soul.[ Jupiter ]
Yours is buddhic or intuitional reason,[
Neptune ]stimulating the astral-emotional nature, [ Moon ] via the soul.[ Venus ]
The building of the antahkarana [ Gemini and its rulers, Mercury/Venus in sextile ]– more surely and more definitely – is the solution for both of you, plus a trained and cultivated self-forgetfulness.
In some ways, the problem of R.S.U. is harder than yours because ( through her sense of inferiority brought about by the second [ lower concrete mind ] of the two capacities of the mind which casts its clear light upon the personality ) she tunes in on the illusion of human failure – a gigantic thoughtform [ Saturn ] – and also upon her racial [ Jewish ] sense of inferiority. Her distress is deep-seated in her love nature.[ Jupiter ]
Yours is not so deep-seated as it is not fed so dominantly from the mental plane.
The way out for R.S.U. is the cultivation of joy,[ Jupiter ] as it brings release to others.
Yours is by the right [ Jupiter ] control [ Saturn ] of speech [ Mercury ] and the elimination of all reference to personality activities.[ Saturn ( ruler of the Capricorn decanate of the Virgo Sun ) conjunct Mars; Jupiter trine Saturn and square Mercury ) ] This must be achieved, not by the processes of inhibition, but by a true lack of self-interest.
SCP was over-estimating her personality to express the divinity/truth that she knew and wanted others ( especially the loved ones ) to see and appreciate her as a disciple while RSU was under-estimating her personality and suffered inferiority complex. Both we preoccupied with these personality issues, focussing on the “ I “ at the centre and so needed to decentralise from the lower self and centralise in the higher centre of identity.
Your technical knowledge of these terms may not be adequate to true comprehension. You need to study [ Mercury/Mars ] in order to awaken your mental grasp, without loosing at the same time your intuitional wisdom.[ Mercury/Neptune }
Power[ Pluto/1st Ray ] can flow through you, my brother. You can act as a distributor[ Gemini ] of strength and power to your brothers[ 11th house ( Pluto is the esoteric ruler ) ] once you have freed [ Uranus ] yourself from the centre of your stage[ Leo ] and can move with greater freedom on soul levels…[ Uranus sesqui-quadrate Neptune/Pluto ]
Your work must continue to lie a great deal on buddhic levels.[
Neptune conjunct the AS, trine Mercury, sextile Venus ]
…you have mastered the ability as a soul to call the attention of the personality.[ Mercury/Venus/Neptune triangle ] This ability is your major asset and contribution where my group of disciples is concerned for it enables you, if you so choose, to send forth at will light and strength and power.[ qualities of the 1st Ray Soul ]

There are four vibrations to which you respond and which you should carefully study and learn to differentiate more accurately[ Virgo/6th house ] in the year of training ( 6th house )which lies ahead:[ the Solar Arc Uranus/Neptune/Chiron in aspect to the natal Pluto ( esoteric ruler of the 11th house of group work/brothers and ruler of the 6th house of right discrimination/purification/adjustment/training ) in April/August/November 1937; ]
Transiting Pluto conjunct the IC and entered the 4th house ( Master/Ashram ) – deeper penetration into the Ashram and establishing closer link with the Master – tuning in to the periphery of His aura.
But they should throw a flood of light upon the personality, revealing you to yourself [ the progressed New Moon in the 5th house of personal identity ]
If this they do not do, then they are kept on too high a mental level and are impractical for they remain mystical [ 6th Ray/Neptune ] and abstract, theoretical and divorced from consummated practice [ Saturn ]
[ the Solar Arc Mars trine the natal and progressed Neptune in June/December 1937 and the transiting Saturn making an aspect to it. ]
Study these various vibrations by practising the habit [ Moon ] of contacting them with deliberation and determination, tuning on one or other of these four at separate times, noting results and registering any response. [ Solar Eclipse on the natal Moon, the orthodox ruler of the 4th house ( the Ashram, inner spiritual attunement ) in December 1937; the progressed Moon conjunct the natal Sun in August 1937; the Solar Arc Moon conjunct the natal MC in November 1937]
The statement which you make and to which I seek to call your attention is as follows: One must distinguish between essentials and non-essentials. …use it as the keynote of your spiritual practice during the next few months, living by it and abiding by it.
Apply it,[ Saturn ] however, not to the use of your time or to your physical plane active life but to the use you make of emotion[ Venus ] and of thought.[ Mercury ]
Transiting Saturn in aspect to the natal Mercury/Venus sextile; the progressed Saturn semisextile the natal Venus; the Solar Arc AS square the progressed Mercury in September 1937; the progressed Venus trine the natal MC in August 1937; the progressed Venus square the natal Jupiter and the transiting Saturn making an aspect to it in May 1937 ] We see the opportunity offered to practice the right judgment/discernment between the essential and non-essential reactions to her emotional and thought processes ]
JULY 1937/DINA I/336, 337
Your mental body is on the second ray. It makes illumination the line of least resistance.[ Mercury/Venus/Neptune triangle ] It facilitates and provides your dominant problem.
That problem is the demanding of love and of appreciation [ Venus ] where your personality [ Sun Virgo ] is concerned. The treasures of the Causal body are displayed and she wants everyone to see them and appreciated them ( Venus in Leo ).
It means that you can always be depended upon to sacrifice [ Pisces/6th Ray ] everything in order that the desires, the will and the purpose of the soul – once they are made clear to you – may be truly worked out. [ Pluto, the esoteric ruler of the 11th house ( serving great Ashramic ideal and spiritual vision ), conjunct the AS ]
But it means also, from the lower angle, that you will sacrifice much in order to be loved by people. …you study whether or not, in moments of personality emergency, you sacrifice your sense of truth or your friends.[ Neptune, the orthodox ruler of the 11th house ( friends ), conjunct the AS ]
The 2nd Ray Mental body is represented mainly by the triangle of Mercury/Venus/Neptune, with Mercury placed in Libra and Neptune in Gemini and Venus being the orthodox dispositor of Mercury and esoteric dispositor of
Neptune. Neptune conjunct the AS and Venus being the esoteric ruler of the AS emphasise the importance of her problem in relation to her Soul’s purpose.
Your emotional body is on the sixth Ray of Devotion and Idealism; hence your devotion to those you love, to truth and ( unknown and unrealised by you ) to me, your Tibetan brother and teacher. Hence also the interplay between your sixth ray personality and your sixth ray astral body which provides both spiritual opportunity but also a definite problem.[ Moon ( veiling Neptune ) is placed in Sagittarius ( 4/5/6 Rays ) and trine Mars ( 6th Ray ) in Sagittarian decanate of Leo; Moon opposition to Neptune ( 6th Ray );
Moon, the esoteric dispositor of Sun, square the Sun ( veiling Neptune ); Mercury ( the orthodox dispositor of the Sun ) trine
Neptune and semisquare Mars.
Your physical body is of a dominant first ray type. [ Pluto conjunct the AS ] This first ray body enables you to handle spiritual energy upon the physical plane.[ Pluto in the 1st house ] It enables you also to act as a force transmitter and distributor.[ Pluto in Gemini ] Pluto sesqui-quadrate Uranus; Mars ( physical body ) conjunct Saturn in Leo;
Your sense of truth is growing fast.[ transiting Jupiter through the 9th house; it activated the Uranus/Neptune/Chiron triangle, related to the weakness in mental polarisation and in December 1937 conjunct MC and entered 10th house ]
JANUARY 1938/DINA I/337, 338
You have had a year of development on all planes and your task is now to balance,[ Libra ] one against the other, the various aspects of your life so that you can build that “ wider world of Thou and Thine, of Ours and That .“ [ We have seen strong progressions and transits last year over the MC/IC and in February 1938 the transiting Nodes are going over the AS/DC axis. All the 4 angles of the chart are involved thus indicating the development on all the planes. ]
In August 1938 the progressed Venus [ the esoteric ruler of the AS ] enters Libra and gives an opportunity to balance all the various aspects of life.
Keep the vision clear, my brother, and live upon the mountain top.[ MC/Capricorn ] She needs to live upon the mental plane and as the Observer, with detachment see things clear.
You are all living on the verge of new happenings,[ Aries ] of increased opportunities,[ Saturn ] fresh complexities and of definite spiritual crises.[ Saturn ]
The transiting Saturn [ ruler of the MC ] enters Aries in January 1938 and thus initiating a new cycle of spiritual opportunities.
JANUARY 1939/DINA I/339, 340
“ In quietness and in confidence shall be your strength. “ Quietness refers to the necessary condition of the astral or emotional body, This is the reference to her two keywords – Silence ( quietness ) and Creation ( confidence )
Stillness/quietness is the Integrating formula for the 6th Ray – to make the astral body still so that it reflects the truth/vision in its pure form. Neptune ( the esoteric dispositor of the Sun ) in Gemini opposition the Moon and square the Sun, makes not only the communication of the truth difficult but it also makes difficult to see the personality in its true light. Sun in the 5th house ( and also the ruler of it ) square the Neptune in the 1st house makes the question of identity a very important lesson for her, in particular with the Neptune conjunct the proposed AS.
Mars conjunct Saturn in Leo aids in the control of the Astral body, as does Pluto conjunct
Neptune ( bringing to the surface all that hinders the true vision ).
and confidence,[ Jupiter in Sagittarius; Venus and Mars in Leo ] which is the outward expression of an inward faith, describes that of the mind.[ Mercury ] Mercury square Jupiter. In quoting to you these words I have given you the working rules which should govern your personality life during the next few months. [ the Solar Arc Jupiter opposition the natal Mars in February 1939; transiting Pluto entered Leo in August 1938 and in March 1939 it semisquare the natal Sun and in August 1939 conjunct the natal Venus and sextile the natal Mercury– a transformation of personal identity and creative self/soul expression ]
Saturn in Leo reduces the confidence and brings obstacles into the way of creativity ( Sun ( the dispositor of Saturn is in the 5th house of creativity/identity )
[the progressed Saturn semisextile the progressed Venus and both in aspect to the natal Mercury ]
The focus of your soul is in the brain and that is why ( when you came into incarnation ) you built a first ray physical body – which is an unusual thing to do. This is an interesting statement. The 1st house normally describes the circumstances surrounding the physical birth and gives indication of Ray types and qualities. Pluto ( 1st Ray ) in the 1st house ( physical body ), conjunct the AS ( Soul’s purpose ) would somehow reflects this statement.
Your problem is to swing the mind nature into greater activity without ( at the same time ) developing criticism – a thing from which you are at this time relatively free though you are not free from certain unrecognised jealousies. [ Sun/Moon/Pluto T-Square ]You are free because the lower concrete mind,[ Mercury ] even if of good calibre, is subordinated in your case to intuition [
Neptune ]and to feeling. [ Venus ]
Your task is to gather personality[ Saturn ( the decanate ruler of the Sun) ] and soul energy [ Venus ( esoteric ruler of the AS ) ] into the mind [ Mercury ( exoteric dispositor of the Sun ) ]and – losing nothing of your present intuitive ability [ Mercury/Venus/Neptune ] and power to feel and love [ Moon/Venus/Neptune ] – to work from the place of mental power.[ Mercury/Saturn ] If you can do this, then your intuition[ Mercury/Neptune ] will take due form and the power which flows through you will transmute feeling into understanding. [ the progressed Saturn semisextile the progressed Mercury in October 1939; the progressed Saturn semisextile the natal Mercury in November 1939 and the progressed Venus conjunct the natal Mercury in October 1939.]
Before, therefore, you meditate each day, I will ask you to practice the ability to withdraw into the mind.[ Mercury ] You usually get focussed too high in the region of buddhic realisation [ Neptune ] ( which is the exercise of the intuitive faculty ) or you are focussed too low, in the realm of astral perception.[ Venus/Neptune contra-parallel Moon ] I do not here refer to astral vision or psychism but to responsiveness to feeling.
You must learn to use the mind as a centre of pure light. You must rid your consciousness of any thought of the mind as intellect[ Mercury in Libra is lifted to a higher mental focus by Uranus ( its esoteric dispositor ) ] and must learn to see it as simply a powerful reflector of the light of the soul, transmitting soul wisdom [
Neptune ]into the world of men.
There is an interesting link of energies from Mercury to Uranus ( esoteric dispositor of Mercury ), then to Neptune ( Uranus is sesqui-quadrate Neptune ) and then back to Mercury ( Neptune trine Mercury, who is the exoteric dispositor of
The Solar Arc AS conjunct the natal Chiron and semisquare
Neptune in July 1939 and square the natal Uranus in October 1939. We see here the activation of the triangle of Uranus/Neptune/Chiron which is related to the weakness in mental polarisation, and thus indicating this as an important lesson in relation to the Soul’s purpose ( AS )
Your objective in alignment will then be the mind, linked with the soul and the brain. This is a little different to the usual presentation of soul-mind-brain. It is mind-soul-brain. If we correlate this with the above linkage of the energies from Mercury to Uranus to Neptune and back to Mercury we would have Mind ( Uranus ) – Soul (
Neptune ) – Brain ( Mercury ). An interesting concept in view of her weakness in mental polarisation.
NOVEMBER 1939/DINA I/ 340, 341
…you are predominantly astral-buddhic [ Mercury/Neptune ] in your consciousness. Your intuitional grasp of reality and of truth is far ahead of the average. Your sensitive response to glamour is equally so.[ interrelation of energies between Moon/Mercury/Venus/Neptune;
Neptune in Cancer Duad of Gemini, conjunct the AS.]
It is for this reason that your soul [ Venus, the esoteric ruler of the AS ] has led you into places where ( in the competitive life of mankind ) your lower mind [ Mercury, exoteric ruler of the AS ] must perforce function and thus the gap between the two major factors in your life ( the higher intuitive mind [ Mercury/Neptune ] and the astral-emotional nature [ Moon/Venus ) can be bridged, thus letting in the illumining control of the lower mind, plus normal concrete thinking.[ the Solar Arc Moon opposition the natal Venus in June 1940 and the progressed Moon conjunct the progressed Mercury in April 1940 ]
My aim is to let you know the purpose of your present life activity. The real aim of your soul[ the AS – Soul’s purpose ] is bridging work [ Gemini ] and the achievement of clear-sighted control [ Mercury ( the exoteric ruler of the AS and exoteric dispositor of Sun/Neptune square ) trine Neptune ] over a powerful personality,[ Saturn ( ruler of the Capricorn decanate of the Virgo Sun ) conjunct Mars ( personality ) in Leo; ]thus leading you to face yourself as you are and to make the needed changes. [ the progressed Sun ( the dispositor of the Mars/Saturn ) entered the sign Scorpio ( deep psychological insight/transformation ) in January 1940 ]
The small social amenities[ 11th house ] and the calculated choice of friends [ Mercury in Libra trine Pluto, the esoteric ruler of 11th house ( friends ) no longer entirely govern your attitudes, though ancient habits [ Moon, the orthodox ruler of the 4th house ( past lives habits ) is in the 7th house ( relationships ) and trine Mars, orthodox ruler of the 12th house ( past unredeemed karma ) still persist. The Solar Arc Mars trine the natal Pluto in May 1940 and the Solar Arc Pluto sesqui-quadrate the natal Moon in January 1940.
You are making real progress in overcoming the glamour of the social world, [ 11th house ] of place and position.[ 10th house ] This glamour is related to the 7th Ray and this Ray could be the legacy Ray of previous incarnation. At the time of this instruction the transiting Jupiter/Saturn/Uranus ( exoteric and esoteric rulers of the 10/11 houses ) were in the 12th house ( past karma ). All these three planets are on some level conditioned by the 7th Ray. The progressed Moon was conjunct the natal Uranus in the 6th house ( healing/correction ) in July 1940 ]
AUGUST 1940/DINA II/570, 571, 572, 573, 574
It is often difficult to know just how to approach you on account of your exceeding sensitivity[ Neptune conjunct AS, trine Mercury ] both to lack of love[ Saturn in Leo, in the 5th house ] or understanding and also to criticism.[ Mercury/Venus/Neptune ]
The Solar Arc Moon trine the natal Mercury in August 1940.
Your first reaction is one of intense pain of being misunderstood – as you think – by me. This is caused by your complete identification of yourself on mental planes with your spiritual objective – an identification which is true, sincere and lasting.[ Saturn trine Jupiter; Neptune ( esoteric ruler of the 3rd house ) conjunct AS; Mercury trine Neptune/AS/MC ]
You are apt to think that you now are what you want to be. This is a thing impossible if the law of achieved progress is of any importance.[ Neptune/Moon/Sun T-Square; Neptune/Chiron/Uranus ]
Your resentment of criticism ( which is sharp and glamour producing ) is not based on pride in fancied achievement but is more a fierce resentment over failure.[ the progressed Sun in Scorpio ] You add your own criticism of yourself [ Virgo Sun; Mercury trine Pluto ] to my proffered suggestions and this creates a glamour.
Your second reaction is a silent acceptance of the criticism or suggestion, and a silent effort ( once the emotional crisis is over ) to change what is undesirable and to make the desired progress. [ Mercury/Venus/Neptune; Mercury/Mars ]
What do you do of a practical nature to bring your quota of effort to the present world need? Because your creative enterprise deals with the luxuries of life, [ Venus in Leo ] you need to offset it with an equally potent expression – again on the physical plane – of your service [ Venus is the exoteric ruler of the 6th house ( health and beauty of the physical body/service to others ) to your fellowmen. [ her business could have been in fashion, interior design ( Venus in the 4th house of home/property ) or in cosmetics ( Venus is the exoteric dispositor of the Mercury in Libra; Moon in the 7th house; Moon/Venus contra-parallel ]
The second question is to ask you if you feel that you are free from the ties of those who are regarded by Us as a basically selfish and self-centred group - those who belong to the so-called social set?[ 11th house of social groups/societies; Uranus ( exoteric ruler of the 11th house sesqui-quadrate Neptune and Pluto ( the exoteric and esoteric rulers of the 11th house ]
You, along with others, have refused to identify yourself and interests with any set except the one in which your destiny or your ambition placed you, and this proves an obstruction often to true spiritual growth.[ Moon in Sagittarius, exoteric ruler of the 4th house ( roots/family heredity ), is in the 7th house of social relations and opposition to Neptune, the exoteric ruler of the 11th house of social set. ] This indicates she was born into high English society and was very much under the influence of its rules and traditions.
In your case, this situation is peculiarly ordained by the soul in order to bring about a needed bridging [ Gemini – Mercury in Libra ] between your powerful astral nature and your definitely illumined intuition.[ Sun/Moon/Neptune/Pluto T-Square and Mercury/Venus/Neptune triangle ]
The world of competitive business and the struggle with the financial situation calls for all the resources of your lower mind and this strengthens and brings your mind into practical effectiveness.[ Mercury, the exoteric ruler of 2nd house of finance, square Jupiter in the 8th house ( resources of other ), trine Pluto and semisquare Mars ( the rulers of the 6th house of work/employees ]
The process is therefore one of a pronounced technique for the integration of soul and personality.[ Both, 6 and 7th house are involved; Uranus, the esoteric ruler of the 6th house, is placed in the 6th house and is sesqui-quadrate Pluto and sextile Mars ( rulers of the 6th house; Moon in the 7th house, opposition Pluto and both square the Earth ( esoteric ruler of the 7th house ( union of personality/soul ) ]
In the case of a disciple, such as yourself, it produces an integration upwards, leading to a definite reorientation of the life forces [ Uranus ] and the calling into creative activity the centre at the throat. [ Saturn ]
When we look at the three planets related to the 2nd initiation ( Venus/Jupiter/Neptune ), we see that all have played an important role in her life lessons. If the proposed AS is correct then
Neptune placement in the 1st house, conjunct the AS and sextile Venus ( the esoteric ruler of the AS ) would be very significant and correlates with her strong astral-buddhic orientation, illumined intuition and identification with the inner reality and truth. Mercury, being the exoteric ruler of the AS and also the exoteric ruler of the Virgo Sun, in square to Jupiter, shows how the mind needed to be used in business in order to balance ( Mercury in Libra ) the powerful sensitivity/astral buddhic nature which could not take any criticism. It also shows the inability to bring through the beauty of the inner reality she seen and strongly identified with due to gaps or lack of integration in her nature and so the purpose of her Soul was mainly to do bridging work ( Gemini ) so that she could see clearly herself and others.
This was the last instruction to her. She could not accept DK criticism of her and decided to resign from the group. [ In March 1941 the progressed Moon square the natal MC; the Solar Arc Uranus square the natal Sun ]
