Değerli arkadaşlar, inisiye yolu arayan kişi, yukarıya bakar. Herkes kendi zamanına göre bunu yapar, benim için yolculuğa başladıktan beş yıl sonra bu başladı. Burada öğretmen-öğrenci değil, öğrenci-öğrenci grup ilişkisi var. Ezoterik bir konuyu anlatabilmek için belirli bir anlayışta olmak gerekiyor. Bir genelleme yapmak istemiyorum. En azından bu kadar açık bir yerde olmaz. Bu kategoride araştırdığım, çalıştığım konu başlıklarını vereceğim. Kaynağı sınırlı tutmalıyız. Ezoterik Dağıtımı burada ifade ediyorum, temiz kaynak en önemli şeydir bizler için.
Madam Blavatsky - Alice B. Bailey ve Helena Roerich - Bodo Balsys. Bu dağıtımın arasında yazarlar yok mudur, elbette vardır. Ancak üstatların dediğine göre sıralama bu şekilde. Biz genelde ABB ve Bodo dağıtımını alıyoruz. Roerich, Master Morya'dan aldığı Agni Yoga serisini de ayrıca belirtmek istiyorum.
Evet, kaynaklarımız ingilizce. O yüzden sorularını varsa lütfen sorun açmaya çalışalım.
Esoteric Astrology, simply stated, is spiritual astrology. The focus of Esoteric Astrology is less upon mundane material manifestations and outer effects, and more about soul evolution and spiritual causes. An important part of Esoteric Astrology is integrating astrology with the seven Rays, or the seven types of divine energy and universal motivation. Many Esoteric Astrologers study the work of Alice A. Bailey, especially her 1951 book "Esoteric Astrology", which is part of her series of 24 books of esoteric philosophy. The following quotes are relevant:
"Astrology is built upon the mystic and intimate connection between the heavenly bodies and mankind and is one of the great secrets of Initiation and the occult mysteries." - Secret Doctrine II, 525 "Astrolatry or the adoration of the Heavenly Host is the natural result of only half- revealed astrology... Hence, divine Astrology for the Initiates; superstitious astrolatry for the profane." - Secret Doctrine III, 337
The program Astrolog supports Esoteric Astrology in addition to classic mundane astrology. The following is a description of the Esoteric Astrology features in Astrolog:
Esoteric Astrology Bodies
Esoteric Astrology charts often include additional bodies beyond what's present in a mundane chart:
Vulcan: Astrolog can compute the position of Vulcan, and display it with its downward pointing arrow glyph. Vulcan is a non-physical planet, which means its physical location can't be scientifically proven yet. Astrolog uses the L.H. Weston proposed ephemeris for Vulcan (the same as Solar Fire). Even if Vulcan isn't displayed in charts, it's useful to have defined as a planet for esoteric rulerships. Vulcan represents the forge, which anchors and purifies both physically and spiritually, hence its downward pointing arrow glyph.
Earth: Astrolog can include the position of Earth in standard charts. In a geocentric chart, the position of Earth is its heliocentric position, which means the Earth is always located opposite the Sun.
Pluto glyph: Astrolog can display Pluto using its esoteric glyph of an upward pointing arrow, representing liberation from form. This option is in addition to two other Pluto glyphs it supports: The standard circle over crescent over cross commonly used in Western astrology, and the "PL" glyph commonly used in scientific astronomy.
D.K. ayanamsa: Related to the positions of planets, Astrolog has a sidereal astrology setting for the ayanamsa (zodiac degree offset) called the "Djwhal Khul" system, which is based on Master D.K.'s writings for the date of the first decanate of the Age of Aquarius. Esoteric Astrology primarily uses the tropical zodiac, however it also includes a sidereal ayanamsa with a relation to Esoteric Astrology that some sidereal astrologers use.
The following video demonstrates some Esoteric Astrology features of Astrolog. It animates planetary orbits in 3D, including Vulcan. It features the "12 bodies" of Esoteric Astrology: Sun through Pluto, plus Vulcan next to the Sun and the Moon orbiting Earth. Positions are astronomically accurate, although on a logarithmic scale from the Sun so the planets can be evenly distributed from it. Planets are colored according to their Ray, e.g. Indigo Ray 2 Sun, Green Ray 3 Earth, Yellow Ray 4 Moon, etc:
Esoteric Astrology features alternate rulership sets for more spiritual considerations of planets. Beyond the mundane set of rulerships, there are esoteric rulers which operate on a soul or spiritual level, and Hierarchical rulers which operate on a planetary or solar level. For example, the mundane exoteric ruler of Aries is Mars, representing forceful and aggressive action. However, the esoteric ruler of Aries is Mercury, to represent the mental cause and design of that initiating energy. Finally, the Hierarchical ruler of Aries is Uranus, to represent the growth and overall purpose of the influx of initiating energy in the first place.
Astrolog can list signs, list planets, and list Rays, showing how each component relates to the other two. What follows are three different tables, which display the same information, except that each is indexed by sign, planet, or Ray.
Below is a list of the 12 zodiac signs. Each sign is associated with 1 to 3 Rays. Each sign's exoteric, esoteric, and Hierarchical ruler(s) are listed. Exoterically, some signs are ruled by two planets: A classic planet visible to the naked eye, and an outer planet that was more recently discovered and which only plays a role when the personality is seeking personal growth. Esoterically and Hierarchically, sometimes the Sun or Moon acts as a veil for deeper energies.
Below is a list of the 12 main planets and related bodies. Each planet rules one or more signs exoterically, esoterically, and Hierarchically. Each planet is associated with one particular Ray.
A "Ray rulership" is when a planet of a given Ray is positioned in a sign of the same Ray. For example, Sun (Ray 2 planet) in Gemini (Ray 2 sign) is a Ray rulership. Similarly, a "Ray debilitation" is when a Ray X planet is opposite a Ray X sign. For example Moon (Ray 4 planet) in Gemini, a sign which is opposite Sagittarius (a Ray 4 sign) is a Ray debilitation. The meaning of a Ray rulership is a pure and undiluted influx of Ray energy, because both the Cosmic sign and the systemic planet are channeling the same Ray energy to our world.
Note that for all Rays except Ray 1, there exists opposite signs are both the same Ray, so that Ray has only one possible Ray debilitation. For example, the three Ray 2 signs are Gemini, Virgo, and Pisces. That means there are three Ray rulerships positionings for Ray 2, such as Ray 2 Jupiter in Gemini, Virgo, or Pisces. However since Virgo and Pisces are opposite each other, the only Ray 2 debilitation is when a Ray 2 planet is in Sagittarius.
A "house Ray rulership" is when a planet of a given Ray is positioned in a house aligned with the same Ray. For example, Saturn (Ray 3 planet) in the 7th house (Ray 3 house, because it corresponds to the 7th sign Libra, a Ray 3 planet) is a house Ray rulership. The meaning of a house Ray rulership is similar to a Ray rulership, except the pure Ray energy is manifesting in the world, because both the systemic planet and the personality oriented house are bringing forth that Ray.
A "double Ray rulership" is both a Ray rulership and a house Ray rulership at the same time. For example, Venus in Sagittarius and 11th house is a double Ray rulership because it's a Ray 5 planet in a Ray 5 sign and a Ray 5 house. A double Ray rulership is very strong, because it's a pure and undiluted influx of Ray energy that's also manifesting in the world.
Astrolog indicates Ray rulerships and house Ray rulerships in its esoteric chart described below. Astrolog can also indicate Ray rulerships in its standard text mode list of planets, if esoteric rulerships are unrestricted in the Display Settings dialog.
