Most of the blog entries were synthesized from various works. The original intent is to clarify for myself the information that had come. There was a need to ensure the integrity of the information received by cross checking them with others. With Theosophy and Ageless Wisdom as the basic framework, the “new information” must be in harmony. It must also resonate with a deeper reality within. I am sharing this synthesis with the view that it also assists the reader in clarifying and discerning for him/herself the truth, relative as it may seem.

The root doctrine of Ageless Wisdom is also the basis of the “esoteric (hidden) traditions” of most major world religions:
1. Cabbala of Judaism
2. Ancient Gnosticism, Essenes and Nazarene, and the Medieval Rosicrucian and Masonry in Christianity
3. What HP Blavatsky called “Esoteric Buddhism”
4. Sufism in Islam
5. Vedanta, Upanishads and Yoga of Hinduism

In the late 19th century, Helena P. Blavatsky (1831-1891)reintroduced the Ageless Wisdom through various works, such as “The Secret Doctrine” and “Isis Unveiled.” She called it "Theosophy;" she also established the Theosophical Society, under the guidance of Ascended Masters known to the world as Masters Morya, Kuthumi and Djwal Khul (who purportedly appeared to the world as the Three Magi during the birth of Jesus).

Blavatsky claimed her main source as an ancient book called "The Book of Dzyan" (from the Sanskrit Dhayana, meaning "mystic meditation"). In c. 400 BC, the book found its way as the Chinese "C'han Philosophy" and the Japanese "Zen," both of which took root from Buddhism.

Blavatsky also wrote "The Voice of the Silence," derived from "The Book of the Golden Precepts," which she claimed had the same origin as the "Book of Dzyan." Many of the Golden Precepts can be read in the Bhagavad Gita. Another book, "Light on the Path," written by Mabel Collins, was also derived from this source. A third book, "At the Feet of the Master," written by J. Krisnamurti (at 15 years old) completes a trilogy, considered as the basic tenets of “Theosophy.”

After Blavatsky died, the society underwent changes and spawned several other groups, such as the Esoteric Order of the Golden Dawn (MacGregor Mathers), Fraternity of the Inner Light (Dion Fortune), the “new” Rosicrucians and “Masonry,” the Anthroposophical Society (Rudolf Steiner) and the World Order of the Star (J. Khrishnamurti).

Alice A. Bailey, formerly an associate of Theosophical Society, also spun off with her Lucis Trust. She authored 24 books on esoteric philosophy, guided by Master Djwal Khul (DK) for 30 years (1919-1949) on a more advanced presentation of the Ageless Wisdom. She founded the Arcane School, training aspiring world servers in esoteric work.

After Bailey, several "guided" authors advanced the Ageless Wisdom. The information from these authors was the basis for the Ageless Wisdom Updates.

Among the major sources for this synthesis are the writings of/from H.P. Blavatsky, C.D. Leadbeater and Douglas Baker of the Theosophical Society; Alice A. Bailey of the Lucis Trust; Janet MacClure of the Tibetan Foundation; Hilary Hargreaves and Mark Brittain of the School of Inner Light; Genesis 2012; Kryon, through Carroll Lee; and the Pleiadians, through Barbara Marciniak & Amorah Quan Yin. The sources were appropriately labeled.

This synthesis is divided (initially) into 5 parts:
Part I - The Logos and Creation (Planes, Dimensions, and Human Evolution)
Part II - The 12 Rays and Spiritual Hierarchy
Part III - Cosmic Humans/Groups & Elohims, Archangels and Secret Rays
Part IV - Humans: Chakras (Centers), DNA, Electromagnetic Forces, Light Bodies, Layers of Consciousness
Part V - Updates and further elaboration of the 4 Parts.
-- Earth, DNA and Humanity (3 Part Series)
-- Ageless Wisdom and the Book of Revelation (3 Part Series)
-- Esoteric Astrology (3 Part Series)
-- Global Calamities and Human Evolution (3 Part Series)

The presentations (entries) are from newest to oldest. That is, Part I is the earliest and thus the oldest entry.

Discernment is very important when dealing with Ageless Wisdom. Mastership, from the viewpoint of the Master DK, is about "mastery of oneself" and not about "having pupils." (DK's Introduction in Violet Starre's "The Diamond Light,"2000)

Dion Fortune (in "The Esoteric Orders and Their Works," p. 83) explained: “upon the mundane plane, it is impossible to escape from the limitations of the human personalities. A great occultist will make a great occult school, but upon his death the mantle may fall upon unworthy shoulders and the glory be departed or turned to corruption.” Fortune added: some (mystery schools) have flourished unchecked, feared and revered by the people they guided, sometimes fallen into evil ways as the degenerated voodoo schools. Some retained a noble tradition as in certain Indian and Chinese schools and monastic orders, accepted as part of racial life.

In the words of Khrisnamurti (“The First and Last Freedom”): “It is through self-knowledge, not through belief in somebody else’s symbols, that a man comes to the eternal reality, in which he is being grounded...Our system of upbringing is based upon what to think, not how to think.”

In the words of the Master DK, the Tibetan (Introduction of AABailey Books, 1935) who inspired this synthesis: “the books that I have written are sent out with no claim for their acceptance. They may or may not be correct, true and useful…If the teaching conveyed calls forth a response from the illumined mind of the seeker in the world, and bring a flashing forth of his intuition, then let that teaching be accepted. But not otherwise.”

From Master Kuthumi (through Michelle Eloff): “A liberated spirit never needs to hold onto anything because every moment provides what is needed, because the moment is perfect… your daily purpose makes up for your greater purpose on Earth. Do not waste time searching for the grand purpose of your life. Be present and embrace the purpose of the moment. Every moment has a purpose, which is why you are in it.”

Esoteric Astrology, Part I: Lineage from the Stars and the Great Invocation

New strides in astronomy, archeology and genetics, lead to a new perspective of reviewing and learning from mythology and history. In turn, they give credence to what Alice Bailey termed as Esoteric Astrology and Psychology. This first part of three parts relates to astronomy and Esoteric Astrology. The two other parts (archeology and genetics) are in succeeding posts.

Constellations, Galaxies, Clusters and Quasars:
When we look at the night sky, we see an array of stars, which astronomers (both ancient and current) arbitrarily assigned to some 88 constellations. Constellations are simply patterns of stars that appear on the celestial sphere, that is, the imaginary globe around the earth on which the stars appear. The stars that make up these constellations are extremely far apart, making "constellations" simply an illusion created by the extreme distance from them to us, with the stars within them separated in some cases by many light years. With the Hubble Telescope, the relative distances of the stars (and star systems) were plotted; they present a different picture beyond the constellations (including Zodiac signs). In most cases, what appears as a star is really the combined light coming from galaxies composed of billions of stars. “Galaxies are to Astronomy as atoms are to Physics.”
1.    Earth is the third planet from the Sun, within our Solar System. It takes 8 minutes for light from our Sun to travel to Earth (a 150 million km distance). It takes 5 hours more to reach Pluto at the edge of the system. The nearest cluster of stars, Alpha Centauri, is 4.3 lightyears away (40 trillion km). Sirius (A & B) is 6.8 light years away. A light year is the time travelled by light at the speed of 299, 792.458 km per second (186,282 miles per second). Sirius may be a member of the proposed Sirius Supercluster, along with other scattered stars. This is one of three large clusters located within 500 light-years of the Sun. The other two are the Hyades and the Pleiades, and each of these clusters consists of hundreds of stars. Vega (α Lyr), the brightest star in the constellation Lyra, is also relatively close  at 25 light-years, and together with Arcturus (36.7 light years  away) and Sirius, is one of the most luminous stars in the Sun's neighborhood.

2.    Our Solar System and the Sirius (A & B) revolved around each other and both revolved around the Star Alcyone of the Pleiades. The distance to the Pleiades is currently thought to be roughly 440 light years. According to Virgil Armstrong : “From the scientific point of view, it is the procession of our Solar System and its accompanying planets around the Central Sun, called Alcione, located in the constellation of Pleiades. This counter-clockwise cyclic procession around Alcione requires 25,860 years to make one complete orbit.” (http://www.2012.com.au/Photon_belt.html)

3.    Our solar system, with its neighbors Sirius and the Pleiades, is located in the outer reaches of our spiral Milky Way Galaxy, on the Orion Arm out towards the edge (6th of 8 such arms, with the 1st, or the 3 KPC Arm, as the nearest to the center of the galaxy). Orion includes the prominent asterism known as the Belt of Orion: three bright stars in a row (with distances, of 800, then 915 and 1340 light years away from Earth). Surrounding the belt at roughly similar distances are four other bright stars. Descending from the 'belt' is a smaller line of three stars (the middle of which is in fact not a star but the Orion Nebula, known as the hunter's 'sword').

4.    The Milky Way Galaxy (an expanse of about 80,000 to 120,000 light-years across, and less than 7,000 light-years thick) contains roughly 200 billion stars. The sun is about 26,000 light years from the center of the Milky Way. The core of the Milky Way is located in the cluster of Sagittarius. It takes our solar system (along with those in the Orion arm) roughly 200-250 million years to orbit once around the galactic core of the Milky Way. In this orbit, the Solar System travels at a velocity of about 250 km/sec. In the Sagittarian Arm (5th from the core) is the Ophichius cluster of stars and nebulae, with an expanse of 47 light years to more than 30,000 light years.

5.    The Milky Way Galaxy, along with its twin galaxy, the Andromeda Galaxy, (2.5 million light-years away), the Draco (Dragon) Galaxy and Ursa Minor Galaxy, is part of the Local Group, a cluster of some 20 galaxies.

6.    The Local Group is still part of a larger cluster of galaxies called the Local Supercluster, which include the Ursa Major cluster and the Virgo supercluster.  The best and brightest galaxies in the sky, just above the two stars that form the neck of Ursa Major (the Great Bear), are M81 and M82. The M81 is a huge galaxy, 4.5 million light years away (about twice as far away as the Andromeda galaxy). M82 is about four times as far, 16 million light years away. The Virgo Supercluster (50 million lightyears away) is the most massive and apparently the central system within the Local Superclauster. The Virgo Cluster with its some 2000 member galaxies dominates our intergalactic neighborhood; it represents the physical center of our Local Supercluster and influences all the galaxies and galaxy groups by the gravitational attraction of its enormous mass. The Local Group (including the Milky Way Galaxy) is moving about 300 km/sec towards the Virgo supercluster.

7.    The Local Supercluster is part of the known universe, composed of billions of quasars, quasi-stellar objects which emit the energy of hundreds of galaxies. The Superclusters Hercules (400 million light years), Perseus and Indus as among the neighbors of our Local Supercluster. 

8.  As of October 2010, the farthest (and earliest known) galaxy - UDFy-38135539 - born in the childhood of the Universe lies at least 13 billion light years away. The light from this galaxy that reaches Earth today was emitted when the cosmos was only 600 million years old and mired in a primordial 'fog' of hydrogen atoms. It has taken 13.1 billion years, travelling at 300,000 kilometres per second, for this smudge of infant light to arrive.

Astro-Physics and Polestars
Our tiny Earth has a magnetic field, like a gigantic bar magnet inside of Earth. But instead of a giant bar magnet; our planet's magnetic field is made by swirling motions of molten iron in Earth's outer core. At the heart of our planet lies a solid iron ball, about as hot as the surface of the sun. Researchers call it "the inner core." It's really a world within a world. The inner core is 70% as wide as the moon. It spins at its own rate, as much as 0.2° of longitude per year faster than the Earth above it, and it has its own ocean: a very deep layer of liquid iron called "the outer core."
Earth has two geographic poles: the North Pole and the South Pole. They are the places on Earth's surface that Earth's imaginary spin axis passes through. Our planet also has two magnetic poles: the North Magnetic Pole and the South Magnetic Pole. The magnetic poles are near, but not quite in the same places as the geographic poles. The needle in a compass points towards a magnetic pole. When you are far away from a pole a compass is very helpful for direction and navigation. The compass needle points due North (or South if are in the Southern Hemisphere). However, if you are near either pole, a compass becomes useless. It points towards the magnetic pole, not the true geographic pole. Those two poles could be quite far apart, and in different directions.

 The swirling motions of molten metal in the Earth's outer core make our planet's magnetic field. Those swirling motions are changing all the time. That means the magnetic field is changing, so the magnetic poles move around. In the first part of the 20th century, the poles moved about 9 km (5.6 miles) per year. Then, around 1970, they moved faster. In recent years they have been moving about 41 km per year. Animals including birds and turtles can detect the Earth's magnetic field, and use the field to navigate during migration. Cows and wild deer tend to align their bodies north-south while relaxing, but not under high voltage power lines, leading researchers to believe magnetism is responsible. Lately, you must have noticed that migratory birds and animals go to places they should not go. This is due to the shift.

As the planet wobbles its way through the heavens, it slowly changes the position of what is seen in the sky while sitting at a fixed reference point. In one year, the precessional lag is 50 seconds. Every 72 years, it shifts the how the stars appear in the heavens in an upwardly direction by 1 degree, causing the view of the nighttime sky to change over time and the constellations to rise. Every 2,160 years, it shifts the constellations (each of the 12 signs of the zodiac) by 30 degrees. Thus, the dawning of the Age of Aquarius referred to the shifts away from Pisces. In 25,920 years, it would be 360 degrees, one complete cycle of the zodiac, known as the Great Year. In addition, owing to the precession of the equinoxes, the position of each pole describes a small circle in the sky over a period of 25,772 years. Each of a succession of stars thus passed near the north celestial pole to serve as the polestar. The pole star or the North Star is the brightest star that appears nearest to either celestial pole at any particular time.

1.    At present the polestar is Polaris (in Ursa Minor), a multiple star about 430 light-years away;
2.    Thuban (in Draconis) used to be the pole star, from 3942 BC to 1793 BC; it was superceded by the faint star Kappa Draconis. Thuban was considered the pole star until about 1900 BC, when the much brighter Kochab began to approach the pole as well.
3.   The brilliant Vega (constellation Lyra) was the brightest North Star (c. 12,000 BC). In 2787 BC, it lay just 1/180 the width of the full Moon from the pole.

Mythology & Esoteric Astrology
Each of the major constellations and star systems had been recorded in various myths by the ancients. I suppose the myths reflect either ancient knowledge (wisdom) explained as metaphors and other symbolisms (whose deeper meanings lost across generations), or were coded information, waiting only for humanity’s evolution into a state when they could be decoded.  Otherwise, the myths were created by the ancients to simply remember a forgotten history; then named constellations in honor of their mythical characters. Whatever the link, the correspondences between the stars and local myths are too uncanny to be ignored. The following are the myths and legends associated with the heavenly bodies. Note that most of the myths are interrelated (from highest or furthest to lowest or nearest levels from the Earth vantage point) and had a serpent or dragon attached to it.


Level/Cluster/Sign
Mythology/Esoteric Astrology/Other Description
 Supercluster Hercules and the cluster Ophiucius (within the Milky Way)
Hercules (Greek – Heracles). Was the son of the supreme deity Zeus and the mortal Alcmene. Heracles had a great many adventures before he died from poisonous venom from Hydra.  Heracles was the only hero to become a full-fledged god, given a home on Mount Olympus and a goddess for a wife. But his mortal part was sent to the Underworld. As a phantasm it eternally roams the Elysian Fields in the company of other heroes.


Beside the constellation Hercules in the night sky is the constellation Ophiuchus, which is really a cluster of stars, nebulae and globular clusters along the Sagittarian Arm of our Milky Way Galaxy. (Note the Sagittarian Arm is fifth from the galactic center and the next inner arm from our Orion or sixth arm). Its prominent stars include Rosalhague (a binary star 47 light years away), the variable star Cheleb (or44 Oph, 82 light years away) and its neighbor Barnard’s Star. Further on are globular clusters between 20,000 to 30,000 lightyears away.

 Ophiuchus was also referred to as “Serpentarius,” the “serpent bearer.” In mythology, Ophiuchus represented as a man grappling with a large snake; his body representing the division of the snake “Serpens” into two parts. Even though divided by Ophiuchus, they still are only one constellation. The mythological figure could represent the healer Asclepius, placed close to Chirion (Sagittarius), his mentor.

Ophiuchus is the only constellation in the sky patterned after a real person in history. In Greek mythology, he was Aesclepius, Master Architect, Healer, and God of Wisdom and Medicine.  Aesclepius, while in the process of bringing Orion The Hunter back to life, was struck and killed by a thunderbolt hurled at him by Zeus.  Zeus' brother Hades, God of the Dead, was alarmed that that Aesclepius' abilities might soon put him out of work. So he prevailed upon Zeus to intervene in the matter. Zeus complied with the dark brother's request. To honor Asklepius, Zeus set him in the sky and gave him the name "Ophiuchus." It is ironic that Ophiuchus is only acknowledged now as the 13th zodiac sign. Is it because of the Age of Enlightenment? Read Tales of the Serpent in http://spiritlibrary.com/allison-rae/tales-of-the-serpent 

 In ancient Egypt, he was the mortal-made-god Imhotep (c. 27th Century BC).
Supercluster Ursa Major (Great Bear), the Ursa Minor Galaxy and the stars Arcturus & Polaris
The Big Bear was a beautiful nymph named Callisto, mother of Arcas by Zeus. Callisto was turned into a bear by Zeus to protect her from his jealous wife Hera. One day, Callisto ran into her son Arcas who was hunting in the woods. Arcas raised his spear towards the bear, his mother. Zeus, watching from above, acted quickly to save his beloved Callisto. He turned Arcas into a bear and hoisted them both into the sky by their tails.

Arcturus is a binary star, 36.7 light years from Earth. Its name is derives from Ancient Greek Arktouros and means "Guardian of the Bear." This is a reference to it being the brightest star in the constellation Boötes (of which it forms the left foot), which is next to Ursa Major and Ursa Minor. According to Edgar Cayce, Arcturus may be called the center of this universe, through which individuals pass and at which period there comes the choice of the individual as to whether it is to return to complete there - that is, in this planetary system, our sun, the earth sun and its planetary system - or to pass on to others. (5749-14)

At the end of Ursa Minor, is our pole star, Polaris. Polaris, also know as the North Star, is about 50 times larger than our Sun, but it appears very faint as it is 600 light years away. Because Polaris is due North, it was a very important directional indicator for early navigators. This means the North Star appears stationary from our point of view on Earth. All the other stars appear to rotate around Polaris.
The Supercluster Perseus, the  Andromeda Galaxy (within the Local Group) and the Perseus Arm (within the Milky Way Galaxy)
Perseus, the son of Zeus and the mortal Danaë, slayed the Medusa, a hideous woman with snakes for hair who could turn people into stone with a glance. Medusa used to be a beautiful servant of Pallas Athena, the Greek goddess of Wisdom. But in hubris she compared herself with Athena, and so Athena turned her into a Gorgon, a terrible creature with snakes instead of hair, and boar's teeth. Perseus cut off the Medusa's head, and from her blood the winged horse Pegasus was born.

Perseus was flying home on Pegasus when he saw Andromeda, the daughter of Cepheus and Cassiopeia, king and queen of the Ethiopians. Cassiopeia, having boasted herself equal in beauty to the Nereids (50 godesses of the sea), drew down the vengeance of Poseidon, ruler of the sea, who sent an inundation on the land and a sea-monster which destroyed man and beast. The oracle of Ammon having announced that no relief would be found until the king exposed his daughter Andromeda to the monster, she was fastened to a rock on the shore.The princess was chained to a rock and about to be eaten by the sea monster Cetus. Perseus killed the sea monster and rescued Andromeda, whom he later married. After many happy years together, they died and were put into the sky by the gods.

The Perseus Arm is the 7th arm from the center of the Milky Way Galaxy. The second brightest star in Perseus is Algol. Known as "the ghoul" or "the demon," it marks the head of the Medusa. About every three days, Algol suddenly gets much dimmer, and then brightens up again a few hours later. This happens because Algol is actually two stars going around each other. One of the stars is much larger and much dimmer than the other. When it passes in front of its brighter companion, we see Algol get dimmer.
Supercluster Indus
The Supercluster (& constellation) was named after the race that originally lived in the Americas. The first Natives in Tierra Del Fuego were members of four tribes - the Yaghan, the Ono, the Alacaloof, and the Aush. It was their fires that gave the region its name. The Alpha Indi orange giant (101 million light years away) was once known as 'The Persian Star.' and is part of a multiple system.
Supercluster Virgo, Persephone and Hades (Pluto)
In Greek, Virgo represents Astraea, daughter of Zeus and the goddess Themis. Astraea was the virgin goddess of justice (next to Libra, the scales of justice). Virgo also represented Demeter, the goddess of agriculture. Demeter's daughter, Persephone (bearer of light), was kidnapped by Hades (Pluto, keeper of light and the god of the underworld), and taken to his underground kingdom to be his wife. Demeter searched for her daughter, so distraught that she even neglected the crops she was supposed to nurture. Eventually, things got so bad on Earth that Zeus persuaded Hades to release Persephone. Unfortunately, while she was in the underworld, Persephone had eaten some pomegranate seeds so that she could never fully leave. Therefore, each year Persephone returns to the underworld for a time — the crops die on Earth as her mother mourns, and we have winter. When Persephone comes back, her mother rejoices and the Earth becomes fruitful again.

In Esoteric Astrology, Virgo is the mother of another type of harvest:  the harvest of the perfected Soul from the womb of form. The "Virgin Mother" nurtures the unborn Christ through the purification of her physical, astral, and mental bodies.  She hides and protects the indwelling Christ within her own substance.  She simultaneously nourishes two lives:  the form and the Christ hidden within this form. Virgo represents the process whereby matter and form life are purified so that they can eventually reveal Divinity.  This is the reason for the continual striving toward perfection that is so characteristic of this sign.  It is necessary for Virgo to constantly adjust, analyze, and discriminate in order to produce the form that will be able to nurture, and eventually bring forth, the Christ within. 
Draco and Thuban
During the time that Draco's star Thuban (Roman Ladon) was the pole star, it would have appeared to ancient sky watchers that the Earth revolved around Draco. The dragon Ladon guarded the golden apples on a tree in a garden tended by the Hesperides, the three nymph-daughters of Atlas. The golden apples were apparently regarded as the source of the golden light of sunset, celebrating the bridal of the heavenly gods Zeus and Hera. Hercules was sent to obtain the apples. He learned from Nereus (sea god) that he could not pluck the apples himself, but must get help from Atlas, a titan, the orginal giant race of earth. Hercules shot and killed Ladon with an arrow, making way for Atlas to enter and pluck the golden apples. The goddess Hera was greatly distressed by the death of Ladon and placed the dragon in the heavens.

A Greek legend tells the story of Draco as a horrible dragon that guarded a sacred spring and slew the soldiers of Cadmus (first king of Thebes) who had been sent to gather water. Cadmus then fought the dragon and won. After the dragon died, Athena appeared and told Cadmus to sow the ground with the creature's teeth. The teeth immediately sprang up as a group of armed soldiers who helped Cadmus found Thebes.

Dragon symbology represents the human DNA. The oureborus is the symbolism of the serpent/dragon biting, devouring, eating its own tail. This symbolizes the cyclic Nature of the Universe: creation out of destruction, Life out of Death.
Sagittarius and Chiron
Sagittarius was the ultimate archer, keen-eyed and with deadly aim. He is usually drawn as a centaur — half-man and half-horse — which is how the Babylonians saw him. To the Greeks, though, he was a satyr — half-man and half-goat — who invented archery. The satyr — name was Crotus, and his father was the pipe-playing god Pan. According to some versions the Archer has his arrows poised to shoot the scorpion in case he decides to sting anyone.The stars in Sagittarius lie in the direction of the centre of our galaxy. When you look at Sagittarius, you are peering right into the heart of the Milky Way.

The most famous centaur in ancient mythology was Chiron, the King of Centaurs who lived with his tribe among the forests of Thrace.  He was renowned because of his wisdom. Kings of Greece gave him gifts and sent their young ones to him for training as princes.  Chiron was the sage, teacher and philosopher.  From his union of man and beast came both a deep knowledge of man's bestial origins, and a deep sadness at his own differentness.  He was the alien, the outsider.  Heracles accidentally shot him with a poisonous arrow and Chiron gave up his immortality to escape the pain. He was placed in the sky as the constellation Sagittarius.  But because of his wisdom, he was granted the gift of immortality by the gods.  So he couldn't die.  But neither could the wound heal, for the poison was from a deadly serpent.  So Chiron is the wounded healer who understands far better the nature of pain.  He becomes a healer who cannot heal himself. 

In Astronomy, Chiron – discovered in 1977– is considered both a comet and an asteroid. It displays a coma, a kind of enveloping haze like a comet. It belongs to a class of over a hundred asteroids known as the Centaurs. These objects are typically over 60 miles in diameter and are scattered primarily between the orbits of Saturn and Uranus, although some travel near the orbit of Neptune. These objects are not typical asteroids as they seem to have an icy surface. Their origins are a mystery. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2060_Chiron)
Lyra and Vega
The lyre was supposedly created from the shell of a tortoise by Hermes as a gift for Apollo, his half-brother. Apollo gave it to his son, Orpheus, who was a talented minstrel and one of the fabled Argonauts. Orpheus was a gifted musician and would often play his Lyre. His wife, Eurydice, was killed by a poisonous snake and taken to the underworld. Orpheus, overcome with grief, followed Eurydice to Hades to convince the gods to send her back. Enchanted by his beautiful music, the gods gave Orpheus one chance to save Eurydice — he could lead her out of Hades by playing his lyre, but could not look back to see if she was actually following him. As he was leaving the underworld, Orpheus took a quick look at Eurydice and she was sucked back into Hades forever.

Vega, the 5th brightest star in the sky, in about 13,000 years, will be our pole star after Polaris. The name Vega means "vulture" in Arabic and reminds us that the civilizations of the Middle East saw these stars as a vulture. At a more esoteric level, it reflected the human genetic inheritance from the felines (bird-like), a species from another advanced universe.
Orion, Scorpius & Mars;
Canis Major and Sirius
Orion, the great hunter, was the son of Poseidon, the god of the sea, and Euryale, one of the Gorgons. He fell in love with Metrope, daughter of King Oenopion. When King Oenopion refused to let him marry Metrope, Orion tried to take her by force, which upset the king. Helped by Dionysus (god of wine), King Oenopion put Orion into a deep sleep and blinded him. Orion consulted an oracle, who told him his sight would come back if he went to the east and let the rays of the rising sun fall into his eyes. Once his sight was restored, he lived on Crete as the huntsmen of the goddess Artemis. The Pleiades, known as the Seven Sisters, were Artemis´ attendants. Pursued by Orion, they were rescued by the gods and turned into stars. Artemis eventually killed Orion, jealous of his attraction to Aurora, goddess of the dawn. After his death Artemis placed Orion in the heavens as a constellation, where we can still see him pursuing the Pleiades.
In another myth, Orion claimed he could kill any animal. Orion was so proud of his hunting skills that he boasted he could track down and kill any animal on Earth. This boast was so incredible that the Earth trembled in rage and cracked open. Out of the crack crawled a scorpion (Scorpius), which stung Orion to death. Out of pity, the gods placed Orion and Scorpius on opposite sides of the sky so there could be no more trouble between them.

The Bible mentions Orion three times: Job 9:9 ("He is the maker of the Bear and Orion"), Job 38:31 ("Can you loosen Orion`s belt?"), and Amos 5:8 ("He who made the Pleiades and Orion"). In ancient Aram, the constellation was known as Nephila, Orion's descendants were known as Nephilim.

The brightest star in Scorpius is called Antares. This star is quite red, and a lot of people mistake it for Mars. That's probably why Antares got its name. Ares was the god of war, also known as Mars, and "ant-" means "against". So, Antares — anti-Ares — means "the rival of Mars." Canis Major is the larger of Orion's two hunting dogs. Canis Major helped Orion chase Lepus, the hare, and battle the great bull, Taurus.

Sirius is sometimes called the "dog star" as it resides in the constellation Canis Major. Sirius is the brightest star in our skies after the Sun. It is 8.6 light years away from Earth.
Pleiades, Hyades and Mercury (Hermes)
The Pleiades is an open star cluster visible in the constellation Taurus. The Ancient Greeks saw seven stars in the cluster, and named them after the Pleiades, the seven daughters of Atlas and Pleione, the daughter of Oceanus. The hunter Orion was in love with them and pursued them until the gods took them to safety, transforming them first into doves, and then into stars. Their names were Electra, Maia, Taygete, Alcyone, Celaeno, Sterope, and Merope. According to some versions of the myth, they committed suicide from grief at the fate of their father, Atlas, or at the death of their sisters, the Hyades.

Other versions made them the attendants of Artemis, goddess of wildlife and of hunting, who were pursued by the giant hunter Orion, but were rescued by the gods and changed into doves. After their death, or metamorphosis, they were transformed into stars, but are still pursued across the sky by the constellation Orion. Maia, the eldest of the seven Pleiades, was a lover of Zeus, the ruler of the Olympian gods. Maia gave birth to Hermes. In ancient Rome she was confused with the cult deity Maia, from whom the month named Maius (May) is derived.


The Great Invocation

Based from the expanse and distance of the superclusters and stars systems from Earth and the Solar System, along with the myths associated with them, a “new perspective” may thus be presented on the human lineage (DNA) from the stars. They are here presented as another way of interpreting the verses of the Great Invocation. Note that the interpretation is from the perspective of creation (involution); the Great Invocation, as initially interpreted is from the viewpoint of ascension (evolution).

“From the point of Light within the Mind of God,
Let light stream forth into the mind of Men,
Let Light descent on Earth”

From the Cosmic Inter-Superclusters: Hercules, Perseus and Indus:  The Cosmic Logos (God) created the prototype of first mortal human which was destined to be like the gods. But whose mortal nature must first venture in the Elysian Fields (lower planes), before eventually rising up and returning its heavenly abode (higher planes as the monad). This was symbolized in the supercluster and myth of Hercules. In esoteric philosophy, Hercules (with his twinflame Amazonia) is an Elohim, which work with the Archangels to carry out their Cosmic Service, focused on the 1st Ray of God's Will.  Similarly, Perseus, a god-man must slayed the Medusa within, whose gaze (focus) can turn man into stones (egoistic pride). The fire (Indus), which relates to the spark of light, must be lit in humanity.

“From the Point of Love in the Heart of God
Let Love stream forth in the hearts of men
May Christ return to Earth.”

From the Local Superclusters Virgo & Ursa Major:  Logos created Virgo-Astraea, the virgin goddess of justice, to serve as law and foundation for the emergence of the human species. Virgo-Demeter provided the path to a bountiful harvest. The myth of Demeter’s daughter Persephone (Bearer of Light) and Hades (Keeper of Light) makes for the seasonal cycle from fall (death) to spring (resurrection). Virgo thus represents the process whereby matter and form life are purified so that they can eventually reveal Divinity. The nymph Callisto, who was transformed into a bear (Ursa Major), must bear (carry) in her bosom the love of her son Arcas, also transformed into a cub (Ursa Minor), until the time of reckoning. They represent the astral/etheric layer of man, which must shake off their “artificial clothing” to emerge as the physical humans linked to a deeper source (Zeus). The Elohim Astraea focuses on the 4th Ray of Purity, Harmony, and Peace. Love is this sense implies compassion – love of self (the harmony of all aspects of oneself) as well as love extended to others.

“From the center where the will of God is known,
Let purpose guide the little wills of men,
The purpose which the masters know and serve”

From the Local Group – Andromeda, Ursa Minor and Draco: Creation has stepped down, with the seed of humanity drawn from various universes and planes. The “polarity game” was mandated by the Logos. The beautiful Andromeda was chained upon a rock set amidst the tumultuous sea, awaiting either death from the sea-monster or deliverance from her twinflame Perseus. The young Arcas (Ursa Minor) must continue to be a bear (animal-man), until the love of his mom Callisto bears fruit in his heart and accept the divinity within. Esoterically, the sea refers to the second plane, the astral (emotional world). The golden apple (of wisdom in the higher mental and intuitive planes) is guarded by the dragon Thuban (Ladon). Hercules (god-man) can help but only Atlas (humanity) can pluck it. The “newly installed” 13th zodiac sign Ophiuchus represented the dawning of a new enlightenment period.

“From the center which we call the race of men,
Let the Plan of Love and Light work out.
And may it seal the door where evil dwells.”

From the Milky Way Galaxy: Earth is in the sector governed by the seven stars of the Great Bear (ensouled by Seven Great Beings or Logoi) with Virgo. In an earlier post, it was pointed out that the first human species was created (within the Milky Way Galaxy) in the Vega star system as the “first Earth” (in Lyra) from genes from an advanced Universe. The Lyrans (Titans) are human species that eventually evolved and scattered as Andromedans (stepped up), and the galactic Sirian, Arcturian, Antarian, Pleaidian, Cignus Alphan, Alpha Centauri, Sagittarius A & B, and Cassiopia. The Human DNA came from Avyon, in the Pleiades, which was the Second Earth. On our earth, the Third Earth, it was a combination of Reptilian and Human DNA.  The Humans are unique among the races due to their DNA coding.  The Humans were given the Gene of Compassion.  They are heirs to the great work which is showing all other races how to achieve compassion through the opening of the heart and the high heart chakra. The Humans were given a different creation myth than the one given to their counterparts, the Reptilians.  The centaur (half-man; half-horse), represents the “present” state of humans. The centaur Chiron’s pointed arrows at the scorpion point out the way to harmonizing of the dark side with the light side.

“Let the plan of Light and Love and Power restore the plan on Earth”

The plan relates to the completion of Humanity’s ascension as an integrated human species living in harmony among itself and with its fellow human species upon the Milky Way and beyond. Ascension does not mean stepping into a different dimension only. It means bringing down the light of the higher dimensions upon the lower planes (physical-etheric realms).

Correspondence of Stars With Humanity

Upon our Earth, the human genetic insertion was possibly inserted into the Homo erectus some 1.5 to 3 million years ago to complete the grand experiment called “polarity game.” The Human’s creation myth states that they will strive to live in harmony with any and all races occupying a planet. Further, they will show their fellow races the way to compassion of the heart instead of compassion of the head (mental compassion).  The insertions were somehow linked to the polestars gateways, aligned with earth’s poles and magnetic field. In succession, consider the polestars Vega (Lyra) - c. 12,000 BC, Kappa Draconis, Thuban (Draco) - c. 3942 BC to 1793 BC, Kochab, and the present Polaris (Ursa Minor). 


Khufu's burial chamber was allegedly fashioned deep inside the Great Pyramid. Two skinny shafts bore outward from the chamber. For decades, scholars thought they were airshafts. But in the 1960s, astronomers found that they have an astronomical purpose. At the time the pyramid was built, one of the shafts aimed toward the star that was then closest to the north celestial pole. The other aimed at the Belt of Orion, one of the brightest and most impressive constellations. The north celestial pole is the "hub" of the northern sky. All the stars appear to rotate around this hub.  Today, the star Polaris marks the north pole. But Earth wobbles on its axis. It takes about 26,000 years to make one full wobble, and in that time, the north pole points to different stars. When the pyramids were built, the star closest to the pole was Thuban, in Draco, the dragon.

1.    The Rays radiating from the Great Bear may be summed up as the energies of the Creator which has been stepped down and “divided” into aspects and smaller components, to make all that has been created function effectively and efficiently (Innerlightworkers). This is a step down from the supercluster Great Bear (Ursa Major) to the supercluster Small Bear (Ursa Minor) of our Local group to the star system Sirius within our Milky Way. The being that ensouls the star Sirius is called the Stellar Logos of Sirius. The Sirian Masters are a large group of cosmic beings from the planetary system of Sirius that include humanoid and dolphinoid entities. The energies coming from the Great Bear are related to the will or purpose of the solar Logos and are to this great Being what the monad is to man. Its 7-fold unified energies pass through Shamballa.

2. The Rays radiating from the supercluster Virgo contained the seven feminine rays stepped down into the rays radiating from the Milky Way’s twin-Galaxy Andromeda of our Local Group; then down to the Galactic Logos (in the Cluster of Sagittarius), then to Orion, the Pleiades, then to Sirius. In Theosophy, it is believed the Seven Stars of the Pleiades transmit the spiritual energy of the Seven Rays from Galactic Logos. The 7 energies coming from the Pleiades, are connected with the active intelligent aspect of logoic expression, and influence the form side of all manifestation. They focus primarily through Humanity.

3.  The being that inhabits the Sun is referred to as the Solar Logos (Helios), with Sirius as its Higher Self. In Theosophy, the 7 spirits before the [solar] throne are the seven solar archangels. The Solar Logos is the direct link with the Source in a stepped-up staircase. The energies coming from the sun, Sirius, are related to the love-wisdom aspect or to the attractive power of the solar Logos, to the soul of that Great Being. This cosmic soul energy is related to the Hierarchy. The great White Lodge on Sirius finds its reflection and a mode of spiritual service and outlet in the great White Lodge of Earth, the Hierarchy.

4.  Within the solar system are ten major planetary beings and a multitude of smaller planetary beings which are helpers for humanity. The energies of the Rays from the Solar Hierarchy are directed upon Earth through the Planetary Logos (Lord of the World), Sanat Kumara (with Vywamus, His Higher Self), the One that ensouls and invokes for the planet. From Sanat Kumara’s Consciousness, necessary energies are ensouled for Earth’s evolution. His Consciousness sounds an invocation that draws to Earth the energy needed (Bailey). From His Consciousness, the rays are transmitted to the world and every life form through a Spiritual Hierarchy.

5. The Triangles of Constellations: Lying behind all the many interlocking triangles in our solar system and significantly conditioning them are 3 energies from 3 major constellations. They are the emanations from the Great Bear, from the Pleiades and from Sirius. Linked with this major triangle and affecting our entire solar system is a triple interrelation, which has a special and peculiar relation to humanity. This triangle of forces relates one of these major constellations, one of the zodiacal signs and one of the sacred planets within our solar system. The First Triangle (Humanity): The Pleiades - Cancer - Venus; the Second Triangle (Shamballa): The Great Bear - Aries -Pluto; the Third Triangle (Hierarchy): Sirius - Leo - Jupiter.
6.  The ouroboros, the symbolism of the serpent biting, devouring, eating its own tail is believed to have been inspired by the Milky Way, as some ancient texts refer to a serpent of light residing in the heavens. The Milky Way is this serpent, and viewed at galactic central point near Sagittarius, this serpent eats its own tail. The Milky Way galaxy keeps a great time cycle that ends in catastrophic change. The sign of the Suntelia Aion is the sun rising out of the mouth of the ouroboros, which will occur on the solstice December 21, 2012 which links with the Mayan Calendar as a symbolic date the evolution of consciousness in the alchemy of time. 

7. In astronomical terms, the end of the Mayan calendar implies the completion of two great cycles. The first, a complete revolution of the Solar System around Alcyone, which is 25,860 years. The second, the end of the complete cycle in the precession of the equinoxes, a period of 25,772 years. According to psychologist Carl Jung, the ouroboros is a dramatic symbol for the integration and assimilation of the opposite, i.e. of the shadow. For the human being, it means integrating the many facets of oneself – the dark and light side into one. 

7.  Acording to Erle Frayne D. Argonza / Ra ( http://erlefraynebrightworld.wordpress.com/2010/12/17/starseeds-on-%e2%80%98critical-mass%e2%80%99-of-leaderships/):  A rough census of our population shows that we are roughly 80% Orion, 17% Pleiades & Sirius B (15% Pleiades, 2% Sirius), and the rest of 3% distributed among other planetary migrants. Among those seemingly fractional count of 3% are the Draconians (reptiles) and other migrants from across the galaxies. Draco and lower Orion formed the binary power nexus of the Empire in antiquity, so altogether down here on Earth their influence stretches out to 80% of total population.
