Seven Forms of Light
Related to the Substance of 7 Planes
“It should be noted that there are seven forms of light, related to the substance of the seven planes. These are stimulated and enhanced by the twelve forms of light of the twelve Creative Hierarchies, related each of them to one or other of the twelve signs of the zodiac. On this I may not enlarge as it concerns the mysteries of the higher initiations. I simply make the statement so that it may be appreciated by you as an occult fact to the proof of which you may not yet have access. A paralleling statement would be that the light of the seven centres in man (when enhanced by the light of the seven planetary centres) and the five kingdoms in nature (7+5=12), plus the twelve lights of the zodiac will produce a consummation of "light" effectiveness which will make possible the expression of the whole. This, through the medium of humanity. This is a basic statement which means little to you as yet but which will—in the next century—form a seed thought or "key sound" for the next revelation of the Ageless Wisdom.”
The above heading is a key quote from the larger quote above. In attempting to keep a focus for this discussion I am confining myself to that which most directly relates to this quote. The overall context of this quote is about the crosses and must be seen from the previous part of the discussion by DK in EA562:
“The Light shines forth because the greater light and the lesser light approach and then invoke each other. Their blended lights, though not yet one radiant sun, are merging fast. These blended lights reveal the Lighted Way.”
DK is talking about passing from the mutable (lesser light) to the fixed (greater light) crosses here. The crosses are the sum totals of the light of the twelve signs, augmented by the ‘light of the 12 Creative Hierarchies’.
Therefore, the aspirant moves from the “blended radiance” at the Pisces point of the mutable cross, to the Taurus point of the fixed cross. Here is where “A new light enters in” – the Seven Sisters of the Pleiades, through Taurus.
The Pleiades are the Mother or Third aspect, which has a direct correspondence to Humanity as the third centre, generically known as “Light”, in the trinity of Love (Hierarchy) and Power (Shamballa).
Uniquely at this time a large part of Humanity are poised to take the First Initiation, ruled over by Leo. It corresponds to the light of the Christ anchored within the cave of the Heart and has much to do with a deeper manasic development within the broader light of the third aspect
Of course, Leo’s polar opposite Aquarius, into which we are moving upon the larger wheel, has its first decanate ruled by Saturn, offering opportunity for humanity to move through this first initiatory door. Saturn is ruler of the Third Ray and has a correspondence to the light of the Pleiades.
The fact that this Initiation is occurring en masse, and that other higher initiations are going on, means that the centre we call Humanity is steadily increasing in radiance. Hence the substance of the light upon the 7 planes is transforming and this is what DK may mean when he says: “…a consummation of light effectiveness which will make possible the expression of the whole. This through the medium of humanity.”
12 Hierarchies 7 + 1 + 4 liberated.
Builders, Attractive Agents. Embody 7 constellations.
Transmitters from outside solar system to inside.
Informing lives of all planetary schemes in system. 7Rays are vehicles for the Hierarchies.
7 Rays + 7 Hierarchies = “Son” form-building aspect.
7 Rays dependent upon quality of Hierarchy.
7 planes - “sheathes” for Hierarchies.
Each Hierarchy septenary = 49 fires of Brahma – 49 subplanes
The quotes from are beautifully linked and I wonder are the cause of manifestation of the crosses:
“1. Separation is produced by rotary movement. By means of this action, all the spheres became differentiated, and form, as we know, the following atomic units:
a. The solar system, recognised as a cosmic atom, all the so-called atoms within its periphery being regarded as molecular.
b. The seven planes, regarded as seven vast spheres, rotating latitudinally within the solar periphery.
c. The seven rays, regarded as the seven veiling forms of the Spirits, themselves spheroidal bands of colour, rotating longitudinally, and forming (in connection with the seven planes) a vast interlacing network. These two sets of spheres (planes and rays) form the totality of the solar system, and produce its form spheroidal.
…Each ray of light…is … a sphere of matter of the utmost tenuity, rotating in a direction opposite to that of the planes. These rays produce by their mutual interaction a radiatory effect upon each other….
a. The planes rotate from east to west.
b. The rays rotate from north to south.
…By means of this very interaction, the work of the four Maharajahs or Lords of Karma, is made possible; the quaternary and all sumtotals of four can be seen as one of the basic combinations of matter, produced by the dual revolutions of planes and rays.
“The streams of energy which pour forth through the medium of the Sun from the egoic lotus and which are in reality "logoic Soul energy" attract to them that which is akin to them in vibration. This may sound rather like the statement of a platitude, but is susceptible of really deep significance to the student, being accountable for all systemic phenomena. These streams pass in different directions, and in the knowledge of occult direction comes knowledge of the various hierarchies of being, and the secret of the esoteric symbols.
The main stream of energy enters at the top depression in the solar sphere and passes through the entire ring-pass-not, bisecting it into two halves.
With this stream enters that group of active lives whom we call the "Lords of Karma." They preside over the attractive forces, and distribute them justly. They enter, pass to the centre of the sphere and there (if I may so express it) locate, and set up the "Holy Temple of Divine Justice," sending out to the four quarters of the circle the four Maharajahs, their representatives. So is the equal armed Cross formed—and all the wheels of energy set in motion. This is conditioned by the karmic seeds of an earlier system, and only that substance is utilised by the Logos, and only those lives come into manifestation who have set up a mutual attraction.
These five streams of living energy (the one and the four) are the basis of the onward march of all things; these are sometimes esoterically called "the forward moving Lives." They embody the Will of the Logos. It is the note they sound and the attractive pull which they initiate which bring into contact with the solar sphere a group of existences whose mode of activity is spiral and not forward
These groups are seven in number and pass into manifestation through what is for them a great door of Initiation. In some of the occult books, these seven groups are spoken of as the "seven cosmic Initiates Who have passed within the Heart, and there remain until the test is passed." These are the seven Hierarchies of Beings, the seven Dhyan Chohans. They spiral into manifestation, cutting across the fourfold cross, and touching the cruciform stream of energy in certain places. The places where the streams of love energy cross the streams of will and karmic energy are mystically called the "Caves of dual light" and when a reincarnating or liberated jiva enters one of these Caves in the course of his pilgrimage, he takes an initiation, and passes on to a higher turn of the spiral.
Another stream of energy follows a different route, which is a little difficult to make clear. This particular set of active lives enter the heart shaped depression, pass around the edge of the ring-pass-not to the lowest part of the solar sphere and then mount upwards, coming into opposition therefore with the stream of downpouring energy. This stream of force is called "lunar" force for lack of a better term. They form the body of the raja Lord of each of the planes, and are governed by the Law of Economy.
All these streams of energy form geometrical designs of great beauty to the eye of the initiated seer. We have the transverse and bisecting lines, the seven lines of force which form the planes, and the seven spiralling lines, thus forming lines of systemic latitude and longitude, and their interplay and interaction produce a whole of wondrous beauty and design. When these are visualised in colour, and seen in their true radiance, it will be realised that the point of attainment of our solar Logos is very high, for the beauty of the logoic Soul is expressed by that which is seen.”
If we take some key sections from these two quotes and link them up, more light may be shed:
“…By means of this very interaction, the work of the four Maharajahs or Lords of Karma, is made possible; the quaternary and all sumtotals of four can be seen as one of the basic combinations of matter, produced by the dual revolutions of planes and rays.
So is the equal armed Cross formed—and all the wheels of energy set in motion.

I am wondering if the following passage refers to the three crosses:
“The places where the streams of love  energy cross the streams of will  and karmic energy are mystically called the "Caves of dual light" and when a reincarnating or liberated jiva enters one of these Caves in the course of his pilgrimage, he takes an initiation, and passes on to a higher turn of the spiral.
Another stream of energy follows a different route, which is a little difficult to make clear. This particular set of active lives enter the heart shaped depression, pass around the edge of the ring-pass-not to the lowest part of the solar sphere and then mount upwards, coming into opposition therefore with the stream of downpouring energy. This stream of force is called "lunar" force  for lack of a better term. They form the body of the raja Lord of each of the planes, and are governed by the Law of Economy.”
So I wonder how closely these three streams of will, love and ‘lunar’ forces, correspond to the crosses, or indeed help make them up. Also, is the above ‘karmic energy’ a fourth stream, or a general pervasive influence?
Burma and Aung Sun Suu Kyi
Democracy leader Aung Sun Suu Kyi has struggled against Burma’s ruling military for many years, and the synastry between these two entities is extraordinary.
One of Suu Kyi’s major horoscope challenges is Moon in Libra square to Saturn in Cancer, somewhat of a mutual reception, making it even more potent. It is all about breaking though her oppressors and jailors (Saturn in Cancer) in the name of justice and liberty (Moon in Libra).
Suu Kyi’s Saturn in Cancer is exactly opposite Burma’s Capricorn Sun, the stern and disciplinarian opposition at whose hands the Burmese people have suffered. Burma’s Sun is exactly square Neptune in Libra, which can give great insecurity and illusions around issues of identity. Burma’s Neptune also falls exactly on Kyi’s Moon. Or, another way to view it is that Suu Kyi’s Moon square Saturn is playing itself out in a T-square with Burma’s Sun square Neptune.
Burma’s Sun 12 Cap 27 Square to Burma’s Neptune 12 Lib 57
Suu Kyi’s Saturn 12 Can 04 Square to Suu Kyi’s Moon 12 Lib 37
Like Burma, Suu Kyi also has Sun square Neptune (from Gemini to early Libra), reflecting her democratic ideals, contrasting against Burma’s Sun square Neptune as deceptive control and manipulation. Hence she finds her own challenges mirrored within the greater body (Burma) in which she finds herself.
Kyi has been under house arrest for 19 months and in detention on and off for 12 years, which expresses some of the qualities of Saturn in Cancer:
“… in this sign Saturn is in the home of its detriment and thus produces those difficult conditions and situations which will lead to the needed struggle. This makes Cancer a place of symbolic imprisonment … provides those conditions of suffering which the soul has willingly undertaken when…the soul chose the path of earth life with all its consequent sacrifices and pains, in order to salvage the lives with which it had an affinity.”
It is very clear that this great soul has made a major sacrifice to liberate her nation from oppression. Suu Kyi’s rising sign is also Cancer, which is the rising sign of Yasser Arafat, and the Sun signs of Nelson Mandela and the Dalai Lama. Cancer in this sense is the homeland, and these individuals have acted in the mid-wifing process, bringing their nations into being. Suu Kyi is definitely the mother of democracy for Burma, in its prolonged gestation, giving way to now possible birth pangs.
Other imprisoning significators in Suu Kyi’s chart are Sun and Uranus in the 12th house of bondage and captivity. Her release from house arrest on May 5, 2002 was reflected in some amazing transits and progressions. Very striking was the exact conjunction of transiting Saturn and Mars to her natal Uranus in the 12th , planet of revolution and liberation. Natal Uranus makes a natal trine to her Libran Moon, a most potent force in her chart.
Equally impressive though was Jupiter’s almost exact transit to natal Saturn in Cancer. Hence both significators of her imprisonment were being activated on the day of her release.
Natal Planet Transiting Planet Progressed Planet
Saturn 12 Can 04 Jupiter 11 Can 37 Venus 11 Can 48
Uranus 14 Gem 06 Saturn/Mars 14 Gem 00/33 Mars 15 Gem 03
Hence natal Moon in Libra was being aspected by all transits, as natally it trines Uranus and squares Saturn. Her Moon at 12 Libra 37 was also being aspected by Burma’s progressed Moon at 12 Libra 39, which was of course, conjunct Burma’s Neptune. The key factors in the synastry between these two entities were being triggered:
Moon is the ruler of Suu Kyi’s Cancer rising – her soul potential to unfold in this lifetime, hence its important position in Libra. Natally it is conjunct Neptune, which happens to be the soul ruler of Cancer, and is deeply concerned with the qualities of love and compassion. When the soul and personality rulers of a chart are conjunct, there is a high potential for successfully fulfilling the purposes of incarnation.
It is still too early to say yet whether the devious manipulativeness of the military junta has had much of a part to play in recent events. After all, the unredeemed personality expression of Sun square Neptune still has a way to go. However, this could also be a major sign of hope in the ongoing struggle for democracy. Burma also has a Libra Moon at 17 Lib 56, which means that its progressed Moon will take another 5 or 6 months to reach its natal position in the 27 year cycle. Perhaps this will be a time to see more progress.
