    Gou +ill remem/er that in an earlier instruction +hich I ha$e ased AA# to inter)olate hereB I )romised

    to gi$e 0ou certain teaching a/out some future meditations that +ill /e )racticed later this centur0 +hen the

    esoteric side of astrolog0 is /etter understood and humanit0 has come through the )resent +orld crisis. At

    that time I said

    ;hen +e ha$e finished our anal0sis of the t+el$e :odiacal constellations% I +ill gi$e 0ou t+el$e

    meditations that +ill /e suita/le for the t+el$e t0)es of disci)les that the0 re)resent% thus gi$ing 0ou that

    ra)idl0 the fusion of the higher and the lo+er sel$es. I +ill also gi$e 0ou t+el$e seed thoughts u)on

    +hich the :odiacal su/6ect can +or for the )eriod of one 0ear or a longer time if needed. There is an

    #efore )roceeding to gi$e 0ou the first of these meditations% I +ould lie to s)ea a fe+ +ords a/out the

    )rocess and also remind 0ou of certain facts that it is necessar0 to /ear in mind if these ,magical formulas-

    are to )ro$e effecti$e. These meditations are not being given out for general use. The0 +ill not /e em)lo0eduntil later in this centur0 +hen there +ill /e a dee)ened astrological res)onse% a resultant understanding due

    to an increasing research into the nature of the :odiacal forces and a /etter )s0chological understanding ofthe human /eing. #ut the time has come to outline the )rocesses and techniues and gi$e the formulas. These

    latter are /eing sent out incomplete% for it is notdesired that the0 should /e used% )articularl0 at a time +hen

    humanit0 is undergoing ecessi$e tension and strain. The com)leted formulas are in the hands of AA# and

    AM EAllen Murra0.

    I shall not% therefore% ela/orate the instructions. I shall onl0 gi$e those indications that +ill /e sufficient

    to ena/le the true and earnest occult student to )enetrate into the heart of the m0ster0 himself. umanit0 has

    reached the )oint +here there is adeuate intellectual de$elo)ment to ena/le the disci)le to do his o+n

    1. These meditations < as I earlier stated < are onl0 for those +ho are u)on the ath of =isci)leshi). The0

    are not for use /0 an0one ece)t pledgeddisci)les. An indi$idual must no+ +ithin himself that he is

    his "oulB /efore he can achie$e an0 success in the use of these formulas or can% +ith safet0% use them.

    2. The )otenc0 of the entire meditation )rocess is contained in the seed thought% for +hich all the first ste)s

    are sim)l0 )re)arator0 and the last are )reci)itating or anchoring. There is one seed thought for each

    sign. These are not /eing gi$en to 0ou at this time% hence the futilit0 of an0one attem)ting to use these

    meditations until the entire formula is in their hands.

    3. 'onnected +ith each of these t+el$e signs of the :odiac and their a))ro)riate meditations is a )eculiar

    therefore% /e esta/lished a relation /et+een the "un "ign and the 4ising "ign.

    5. I ha$e )ost)oned the gi$ing of these meditations until certain /asic )ro)ositions re the "cience of

    Triangles had /een gras)ed /0 the student /ecause these meditation formulas are /ased u)on the )lanned

    fusion < /0 in$ocation < of three /asic energies those of the 4ising "ign% those of the "un "ign and those

    of the sign that is o))osite to that of the "un "ign noto))osite to the 4ising "ignB. a$e these three

    When that which rises over the horizon the boundary becomes the guiding light the !ath runsclear from the highest to the lowest and lo the three are one" And then the little two of the lower

    system are lost in the final glory" The planet disappears" #ts lowest reflection disappears and only the

    triple sun is seen"

    8. It might here /e stated that the disci)le focuses in himself the "un "ign and this conditions his

    )[email protected] he sees to reali:e the )otenc0 of the 4ising "ign and this )roduces the ensuing conflict in

    his [email protected] he also as)ires to fulfillment in the )olar o))osite of his "un "ign +hich indicates )ersonalit0

    )erfectionB and thus sees to demonstrate the fusion of three forces% )otencies or energies.

    ?. The meditation formulas here gi$en are concerned onl0 +ith the reali:ation of the )ur)ose of the

    energies of the 4ising "ign and their effect +hen /rought into relation +ith the "un "ign. The0 are onl0

    distri/uted to the other centers in the etheric net+or.

    11. There are twelve symbols% one for each of the t+el$e :odiacal signs. These s0m/ols are $er0 ancient and

    are gi$en onl0 to )ledged disci)les. There are twelve seed thoughtsor formulas of +ords that% +hen

    related to the t+el$e s0m/ols% /ring through the needed energ0 from the t+el$e signs of the :odiac.

    12. These s0m/ols and seed thoughts are used in connection +ith the Rising"ign and ne$er +ith the "un

    "ign. ;hen the horosco)e is )ro)erl0 cast and the 4ising "ign is accuratel0 determined% then the

    disci)le% ,taing his stand u)on the firm foundation of his radiant sun% sees another sun arise o$er the

    c. A correct state of mind or consciousness.

    19. ;e can see% therefore% that the intent at this stage of the :odiacal meditation is

    a. To /ring a/out the alignment of t+o energies < that of the "un "ign and that of the 4ising "ign.

    /. To )roduce% /0 this alignment and conseuent inflo+% a fusion +ith the energies of the o))osite of

    18. The meditation )rocess falls into four definite stages% +hich +e can descri/e as follo+s

    a. The stage of preparation. In this stage the disci)le comes to an understanding of his )ro/lem%

    recogni:es the nature of the )otencies +ith +hich he is dealing and la0s the ground for action. In the

    recognition of the energies +ith +hich he is occu)ied% he reali:es that the0 are

    i The )otencies of the eui)ment +ith +hich his "un "ign has endo+ed him.

    ii The )otencies of the 4ising "ign +ith +hich it is the intention of his "oul to endo+ him.

    iii The )otencies of the o))osing sign that esotericall0 indicates the )oint of attainment possible

    through the fusion of the t+o other energies.

    This )re)arator0 stage is one of reflection% of mental )re)aration and of the raising of the

    consciousness to as high a le$el as )ossi/le. These meditations < to /e trul0 successful < in$ol$e the
