“Virgo symbolises depths, darkness, quiet and warmth;
it is the valley of deep experience wherein secrets are discovered and eventually
“brought to light”; it is the place of slow, gentle and yet powerful crises and
periodic developments which take place in the dark and yet which lead to light.”1

Virgo and the Mystery of the Sphinx
The sign of Virgo the Virgin follows after Leo the Lion, speaking to us of the mystery of the sphinx – with the body of a lion and the face of a virgin. In ancient Lemurian days these two signs were dormant – but became activated when Humanity Individualised and gained the “spark of mind,” becoming conscious, thinking souls: “The seed of Christhood was planted in man and these two signs began to influence humanity.”2
This is a good reminder of the fact that the zodiac signs are intimately connected with human evolution; that they are essentially groups of angelic beings that focus the energies pouring forth from the constellations of the zodiac. Note the difference between signs and constellations, always a source of confusion amongst students of astrology and astronomy.
“Virgo and Leo together stand for the whole man, for the God-man as well as for spirit-matter … when the nature of the world is revealed, then the mystery of the Sphinx will no longer exist.”3
This mystery is that of the solar Angels, our souls – and the mediating principle of the mind, higher and lower, plus their relation to one another. Mercury or Thoth is involved as the ruler of Virgo, and Messenger of the Gods, mediating between the lower and higher mind. Mercury is the Son of Mind, the soul, mediating between Father and Mother, or Spirit and Matter. Yet Mercury is also the result of father-mother union. Here Leo might symbolically represent father and Virgo, mother. (Capricorn-Cancer are another duality like this.)
Similarly, this trinity may be traced in many traditions. In the Egyptian culture, Mercury is also Horus, Osiris the father and Isis the Mother, the third principle of matter or intelligence. Yet, Isis also represents the love-wisdom, the second aspect of the triple goddess, Eve, Isis and Mary. Together these goddesses represent the perfecting of the expression of the Christ consciousness through all vehicles of the personality – mental, emotional and physical. The glyph for Virgo is also triple, representing the three goddesses of personality .
Hence, the feminine Virgo mother nurtures these principles over many lifetimes, hidden in the silent depths, gestating to a gradual awakening. When Eve ate the apple of knowledge in the Garden of Eden, this was the moment of Individualisation in Lemuria 21 million years ago – and the gradual evolution of mind since that time:
“The lure of knowledge to be gained through the experience of incarnation. Eve, therefore, took the apple of knowledge from the serpent of matter and started the long human undertaking of experiment, experience and expression …
Isis stands for this same expression down on to the emotional or astral plane. Eve has no child in her arms; the germ of the Christ life is as yet too small to make its presence felt; the involutionary process is yet too close; but in Isis the midway point is reached; the quickening of that which is desired … has taken place and Isis consequently stands in the ancient zodiacs for fertility, for motherhood and as the guardian of the child. Mary carries the process down to the plane or place of incarnation, the physical plane, and there gives birth to the Christ child.
In these three Virgins and these three Mothers of the Christ, you have the history of the formation and the function of the three aspects of the personality through which the Christ [or soul] must find expression. The sign of Virgo itself stands for a synthesis of these three feminine aspects—Eve, Isis and Mary. She is the Virgin Mother, providing that which is needed for the mental, emotional and physical expression of the hidden but ever present divinity. These three expressions are brought to the needed perfection in Leo, the sign of the individual, developed self-consciousness and personality unfoldment.”4
It is important to remember this profound symbolism of Isis and the divine feminine, in a world where a terrorist group has hijacked the name as its acronym; the latter which stands as an ugly reminder of crystallised patriarchy and blind, fanatical belief.
The period of history now, may signal a balancing from the Atlantean rootrace where at one stage that civilisation was dominated by a matriarchy. Lilith was the last of these Virgin goddesses and the Amazons were part of the ancient Atlantean culture in Asia Minor.
As Humanity makes the transition to the coming Sixth Rootrace, a gradual marriage between matriarchy and patriarchy will ensue, producing eventually a blended and balanced hierarchy – in a civilisation totally different to the one that we know now. Of this, the furthering of women’s rights and growing awareness of equality between the sexes today, is its promise. (For another reflection, see the author’s Leo 2011: Leo-Virgo, Mystery Sphinx. Lemuria. Hermaphrodite.)
Hercules and Hippolyte
The Amazon warriors hold a special place in the racial memory of humanity. The term amazon meant in ancient Greek, without (right) breast, (a mazos). Hence, their origin is not in South America as might be assumed, but in the area of ancient Thrace, near the Black Sea – the Libyan amazons were much earlier apparently. These female warriors were so fierce that they amputated (or burned off) their right breast, lest it impede their ability and accuracy with a bow and arrow. If one explores their history, they were responsible for founding cities, including Ephesus and Smyrna.
The story of Hercules slaying Hippolyte, the queen of the Amazon warriors is an allegory about the emergence of spiritual wo/man from the control of matter. Yet, Hercules also failed his sixth labour (Virgo):
“Only the women, gathered round their queen. Within the temple of the moon [matter] they daily worshipped and there they sacrificed to Mars, the god of war. Back from their annual visit to the haunts of men they came. Within the temple precincts they awaited word from Hippolyte, their queen, who stood upon the steps of the high altar, wearing the girdle given her by Venus, queen of love. This girdle was a symbol, a symbol of unity achieved through struggle, conflict, strife, a symbol of motherhood and of the sacred Child to whom all human life is truly turned.
“Word has gone forth,” said she, “that on his way there comes a warrior whose name is Hercules, a son of man and yet a son of God; to him I must give up this girdle which I wear. Shall we obey the word, O Amazons, or shall we fight the word of’ God?” And as they listened to her words and as they pondered o’er the problem, again a word went forth, saying that he was there, ahead of time, waiting without to seize the sacred girdle of the fighting queen.
Forth to the son of God who was likewise a son of man went Hippolyte, the warrior queen. He fought and struggled with her and listened not to the fair words she strove to speak. He wrenched the girdle from her, only to find her hands held out and offering him the gift, offering the symbol of unity and love, of sacrifice and faith. Yet, grasping it, he slaughtered her, killing the one who dowered him with that which he required. And as he stood beside the dying queen, aghast at that which he had done, he heard his Teacher speak:
“My son, why slay that which is needed, close and dear? Why kill the one you love, the giver of good gifts, custodian of the possible? Why kill the mother of the sacred Child? Again, we mark a failure. Again you have not understood. Redeem this moment, e’er again you seek my face.” Silence fell and Hercules, gathering the girdle to his breast, sought out the homeward way, leaving the women sorrowing, bereft of leadership and love.”5
Greek Mysteries of Virgo
Virgo rules the caves that lay beneath the earth, those womb-like spaces where the Ancient Mysteries were enacted for candidates to initiation. The ancient Greek festival of Demeter-Ceres in the month of Boedromion (September-Virgo), is when the “greater” Eleusinian Mysteries were celebrated. Candidates were led through dark underground caves in their quest for the light of knowledge and wisdom, “running the gauntlet” of certain trials and tests. The symbol of Virgo is the Virgin who holds a sheaf of wheat, the Bread of Christ, or the Love-Wisdom ray which expresses potently in this sign, more than any other in this current cycle.
The symbolism of these initiatory enactments was around the abduction of Demeter’s daughter Persephone, by Pluto into his underworld or Hades. This occurred in a cycle of three phases, starting with the descent (loss), the search by Demeter in the underworld or the realm of the dead, and finally the ascent from hell where Persephone is reunited with her mother.
Persephone is the goddess of vegetation and daughter of Demeter or Ceres (cereals), the goddess of the grain, or Mother Earth – the spirit of Virgo. She is abducted by Pluto and taken underground for a third of each year to be his wife. Allegorically she is the seed which lays in the ground for part of the year, returning to her mother as the crop which rises out of the ground.
Hence Pluto, the Lord of Death, comes to take/rape Persephone (vegetation) every season. As soul ruler of Pisces, which precedes Aries and spring in the northern hemisphere, Pluto represents the darkness at the end of winter and also rules over autumn-Scorpio, just before winter. At the Virgo harvest at the end of summer, polar opposite Pisces-Pluto is invoked. Esoterically, Persephone refers to the burial of the body and the immortality of the soul – whose gestation Virgo rules over in the womb of time.
In the myth, Persephone gathered flowers in the fields of Mount Etna, Sicily – an active volcano – symbolising the subterranean forces of Pluto. (Sicily in modern times has a reputation for being a very Scorpionic/Plutonic place.) Volcanoes are closely related to Vulcan, who like Pluto,works deep in the Earth at the smithy’s forge, “fashioning his instruments of beauty” for the soul’s use.
Virgo’s soul ruler is the Moon which “veils” Vulcan, producing the craftsmanship and skill for which Virgo is renown; it is this inner soul process that is behind the outer creativity. In mythology, Vulcan, the lame and ugliest god, was married to the beautiful Venus – who is connected to “the descent of Spirit into the womb of the virgin mother,” i.e. under the earth.
Virgo’s opposite sign/month is Pisces/February, when the “lesser mysteries” were enacted for the masses. Pisces is ruled by Neptune, a planet related to mass consciousness, but it is also a “mass” sign. The parable of the “loaves and the fishes” is closely connected to Virgo (loaf)-Pisces (fishes). Virgo is connected to the first initiation and the first awakening of Christ consciousness, appropriate to the symbolism of mother Mary who births Jesus, vehicle for the Christ:
“… the first initiation; the initiate-disciple still works in the dimly lit “cave of the spiritual birth”; he has to continue his struggle to reveal divinity, primarily on the physical plane—symbolised for us in the word “Bethlehem” which means the “house of bread””6 “Simultaneously, large masses will take the first initiation and “in the house of bread,” stand before the Initiator.”7
Virgo has a role to play in the reappearance of the Mystery Schools in the approaching Aquarian Age. Modern Greece is a Virgo soul, reflecting its role as an ancient repository of the Mysteries; all the Greek myths are essentially the ageless wisdom encoded. Greece (or Syria) is where one of the prepatory esoteric schools will be located in the future. New Zealand is a Virgo personality and will also have a preparatory school. Australia and Ireland are Virgo souls and are the planned locations of two of the future advanced schools.8
Virgo-Pisces and Sirius
There is also another dimension to this Virgo-Pisces axis. As described in another newsletter, several zodiac signs are related to Sirius. We have just passed through the sign of Leo, one half of the sphinx and, month of the dog-star, Sirius. Virgo is Isis, synonymous with Sirius (the “Nile star”). Part of the Leo-Virgo riddle of the sphinx is connected to Sirius. With regard to Pisces, there is a line of energy upon the second ray of Love-Wisdom, that passes from Sirius to Pisces, to Uranus and then passes to the heart centre of a disciple.9 The Old Commentary contains an evocative description:
“The central light of Sirius shone through the eye of the Son; the vision came. The light of wisdom penetrated into the waters and cast the radiance of the Heavens into the depths. At this attractive call, the goddess rose unto the surface (the fish-goddess, the symbol of Pisces) and welcomed the light within the depths and grasped it as her own …
And then the heavens within the ring-pass-not responded to the light from Sirius which, passing through the sea of Pisces, lifted the fishes into the heavenly sphere (Uranus) and thus a lesser triple light appeared, the radiant sun of suns, the watery light of Pisces, the heavenly light of Uranus …”10
There is much to be reflected upon here, as Uranus does not traditionally connect to Pisces; it is related to the synthesis of heart (Pisces) and mind (Uranus); Sirius represents the blending of both.
Virgo, Healing, Herbs and Essential Oils
Virgo is more traditionally associated with the healing of the etheric-physical body through diet, nutrition, hygeine, yoga, tai chi etc. These are all disciplines that align the physical body with the etheric body, particularly if an individual has just “reversed the wheel” (or recapitulated it), and taken the first initiation – connected to both Leo and Virgo. The newly impulsed soul force pours into the etheric body, creating a higher frequency that must be equilibrised within the physical body.
Hygiea (hygiene) was the daughter of the great healer Asklepius ; she used serpents to help her find herbs for her healing craft, hence is depicted in art with these creatures, also a symbol of Wisdom and energy currents in the body. (See here and here for two other pieces on Hygeia.)
As Virgo is an earth sign, right nutrition from the vegetables and herbs of Mother Earth, is one of the best things that an individual can try to achieve – at whatever stage of spiritual growth they may be; especially in this age of polluted and processed foods, overloads of sugar, additives and pharmaceuticals, is it any wonder that billions have their health compromised? Much of the corresponding approach from allopathic medicine, financially in bed with “Big Pharma,” is limited and hampered, although of course, accomplishes much good work.
Hence, alternative or complementary medicine approaches are imperative, not only because of their proven efficacy, but because it puts the patient in a place of empowerment and control over their health. These days this is increasingly not the case in various health systems of nations around the world where certain policies are dictated. There are attempts to pass laws of compulsory vaccination for instance, whilst Big Medicine and Big Pharma are making continuous and nonsensical attacks upon herbal medicine, homoeopathy, naturopathy, acupuncture, Chinese medicine, Ayurvedic etc. The following was written 80 years ago, how far or fast has humanity gone in the right direction since then?
“Medical science must eventually seek solution in a simplification of methods and a return from a complexity of drugs and operations to an understanding of the right use of the energies which pour through from the inner man, via the etheric body, to the physical.”11 … Wrong food of every kind, the inhalation of smoke down the centuries, the breathing in of tainted air, the taking of medicines and pills and tablets of every possible description, the rifling of the vegetable and mineral kingdoms in search of their ingredients, and the injection of mineral substances, of drugs and of serums, till one wonders sometimes at the remarkable assimilative powers of the human frame.”12
The entry in Wikipedia for “Alternative Medicine” is appalling in its bias, without even the usual disclaimer like, “there are problems with this article.” It has obviously been written by parties who vociferously support only conventional medicine and have a vested, monied interest in maintaining the status quo.
Essential oils is one rapidly growing area where a lot of people are getting good results, with scores of various oils available. Oils are a form of concentrated herbalism (not just aromatherapy) and have a proven track record going back thousands of years; they are mentioned in the Bible and many other ancient texts from all cultures. Some of the more well known oils like Sandalwood, Frankincensse, Myrhh and Spikenard were worth as much or more than precious metals in ancient times, so revered were they for their healing properties.
These days some essential oil companies13 are doing excellent work in liasing with conventional medicine and building networks of understanding. There is virtually an oil for every ailment – it is the one of the best kind of long term measures for good health.
Of course one must use these very powerful remedies with discrimination and care, considering other methods of healing, conventional or alternative. Herbs and minerals are specifically a way of healing for those upon the third ray of active-intelligence. But as the planetary centre that we call Humanity is the third centre, then it has a great affinity with the third ray and thereby its healing benefits in general.
When one penetrates deeply into the subject to really understand the power of oils (as the author is still doing!)14, the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual benefits become readily apparent and proven by experimenting and experiencing. Here we see how the triple Virgo goddess (the threefold personality) is serviced on all levels by essential oils. And it is in the blending of oils where the real magical alchemy occurs.
There is also a vast scientific body of evidence on the chemical compounds of oils, the processes and path of how they are absorbed externally into the body via the skin, via scent, or taken internally. Bear in mind that many pharmaceuticals are derived from plants or their synthesised chemical structures. With the latter however, there is an absence of the pranic vitality that the original herb or oil possesses. Mineral drugs are another issue:
“One of the great errors into which the human family has fallen has been the endeavour to administer mineral drugs to man for medicinal purposes. It has resulted in a combination of deva substances which was never intended. The relation of man to the lower kingdoms, and particularly to the animal and mineral, has brought about a peculiar condition in the deva world and has tended to complicate deva evolution.
The use of animal food (and the use of minerals as medicine in a lesser degree) has produced a commingling of deva substance, and of vibrations which are not attuned to each other. The vegetable kingdom is in a totally different situation, and part of its karma has lain in the providing of food for man; this has resulted in a needed transmutation of the life of that kingdom into the higher stage (the animal) which is its goal.
The transmutation of vegetable life takes place necessarily on the physical plane. Hence its availability as food. The transmutation of the life of the animal into the human kingdom takes place on kama-manasic [desire-mind] levels. Hence the non-availability, esoterically understood, of the animal as food for man. This is an argument for vegetarian living which needs due consideration.”15
Oils and herbs are ruled or associated with planets and zodiac signs, well known for thousands of years. The British herbalist, Nicholas Culpeper, is one good example through his several books, such as Astrological Judgement of Diseases from the Decumbiture of the Sick, and, Urinalia Culpeper had the sun in balancing Libra, moon in earthy Capricorn and Mercury-Venus in Scorpio, a great sign of healing. Culpeper says, “Barley … a notable plant of Saturn … barley bread is so unwholesome for melancholy people.” “Melancholic” was one of the four humours, commented upon in the book, Esoteric Healing:
“The Basic Causes of Disease: This is the problem with which all medical practice down the ages has wrestled. In our present mechanistic age [1940’s] we have wandered far to the surface of things and away from the partially true point of view of earlier centuries which traced disease back of the “evil humours” bred and festering in the inner subjective life of the patient.
In the evolution of knowledge on every hand we are now on the surface of things (note I do not use the word “superficial”), and the hour has struck in which knowledge can again re-enter the realm of the subjective and transmute itself into wisdom. There is today a dawning recognition on the part of the best minds in the medical and allied professions, that in the subjective and hidden attitudes of the mind and of the emotional nature, and in the life of inhibited or excessive sex expression, must be sought the causes of all disease.”16
Nicholas Culpeper had Sagittarius rising (his soul purpose), with Jupiter in Sagittarius as well:
“A legendary rebel, radical, Puritan, and author of the great ‘Herbal’ … medicine’s first freedom fighter set in London during Britain’s age of revolution. London’s medical regime was then in the grip of the College of Physicians, a powerful body personified in the ‘immortal’ William Harvey, anatomist, royal physician and discoverer of the circulation of the blood. Working in the underground world of religious sects, secret printing presses and unlicensed apothecary shops, Culpeper challenged this stronghold at the time it was reaching the very pinnacle of its power … a medical rebel who took on the authorities and paid the price.”17
Another example of zodiac energies associated with essential oils and herbs:
Flowers: Cornflower, jasmine, morning glory, narcissus, petunias, sage, wintergreen. Small brightly colored flowers.
Herbs: Caraway, chervil, dill, fennel, horehound, lavender, lily, marjoram, mint, salad burnet, southernwood, summer savory.
Bach Flower Remedy: Centaury.
Essential Oils: Cypress, dill, fennel, lavender, patchouli, peppermint.
Lavender has long been considered to be a herb of Mercury (the Ruler of Virgo). Virgo is a sign of service and work and it is often described as being closely connected with health and healing.
For Lord Virgo, lavender is blended with patchouli, for its nurturing qualities and cypress for strength and comfort and can promote confidence, patience and wisdom.
For Lady Virgo, lavender is combined with peppermint for humility and fennel for mothering. Essential Oil Synergies Lord Virgo Lavender – 12 drops Patchouli – 6 drops Cypress – 5 drops Lady Virgo Lavender – 10 drops Peppermint – 3 drops Fennel – 5 drops.”18
August 21 Eclipse and Donald Trump
Donald Trump has Mars in Leo and is due for his Mars return just before the Virgo full moon period. Shortly thereafter, transiting Mars will go over the degree of the recent August eclipse, activating that energy pattern for the world in general, but very specifically for Trump.
Before discussing this, it might be useful to share a recent Facebook post. (Friend me if you wish to see some of these posts that do not generally feature in newsletters.) I was asked about the two yearly Mars in Leo transit to natal Pluto, for the Pluto in Leo generation. Transiting Mars in Leo is very revealing, regarding unregenerated feelings, as Mars rules the solar plexus, seat of the emotional body.
Mars is like the Moon in that this God of War brings into dramatic focus and often conflict, what is not whole in the lower self. So all sorts of issues can come up during a Mars-Pluto transit – personal pride particularly, attachment to a sense of your own authority, “lording it over” or trying to dominate others, angry ego clashes etc.
So it can be a very challenging period of a few days because Mars transits applying to Pluto can be felt several degrees applying to the conjunction. Pluto’s job is to dredge all these things up from the depths (our personal “hell”) and reveal them in the light of day. Hence this transit can magnify intensely any unconscious issues, creating a painful period, which is ultimately cathartic if one surrenders to Pluto’s healing force.
Recognising Leo pride that we all carry to some degree, is why this transit might be humiliating for some. Hubris (pride) is an absence of humility, and this word comes from “humus” meaning “earth, on the ground.” Hence, incidents that occur during a Mars-Pluto transit can bring a person back down to Earth, when realising their inflated sense of self (The Ahamkara), after having the ego punctured!
Doing hard physical work can be a good way of working this transit out, like working in the garden or cleaning up the tool shed, like I did yesterday on my Mars-Pluto transit, lol! (You see, I don’t just sit on my computer all day writing!) But be careful not to over do it, or create an accident through misdirected anger, like putting a spade through your toe or getting a touch of road rage! An endurance marathon would be a good expression of Mars-Pluto.
Both planets are associated with the solar plexus, so it is a good opportunity to “drain the swamp” and raise it all up to the fiery crucible of the heart. Here Pluto’s new symbol of the vertical up-pointed arrow describes this process.”19
Well, Trump had his Mars transit over Pluto in early August, so perhaps for his staff, it was a more irksome period than usual! And of course, the “swamp” is still not drained, probably more alligators and anacondas have been added! With his two-yearly Mars return in Leo, Trump will be severely tested with all the above factors. Here is the timeline of critical days for health, resigning, staying in power, being impeached or assassination:
|Aug. 31||Trump’s Mars return – in orb of influence several days before.|
|Sept. 4-8||Beginning of Virgo full moon period, before and after.|
|Sept. 4||Transiting Mars exact conjunction with August 21 solar eclipse at 28° Leo 52’.|
|Sept. 5||Transiting Mars exact conjunction with Trump’s ascendant at 29° Leo 55’. Transiting Mars exact conjunction to fixed star Regulus at 0° Virgo 03’.|
|Sept. 6||Exact full moon. Transiting Mercury in Leo passes over eclipse degree.|
|Sept. 7||Transiting Mars conjunct Trump’s progressed Sun in early Virgo.|
Donald Trump’s Mars Return 2017.
(Using NYC for location, not sure where he will be on that day. Washington location is almost the same chart.)
The Mars return chart has many dynamic patterns. Some interesting points for this horoscope that will condition the next two year cycle of Mars:
1. Leo rising – like his natal chart, with Venus in Leo conjunct the ascendant.
2. Sun opposite Neptune, like the following full moon chart, that will create a grand cross to his Gemini sun-Sag moon opposition. Much idealism and even vision, big possibility of deception. Perhaps his own party is scheming to remove him from office?
3. Void of course Moon in Sagittarius – in its last degree, interpreted in the Sabian Symbols as: “THE POPE IS HOLDING AUDIENCE IN A HALL OF THE VATICAN. Wealth of spiritual resources which can be tapped for the glorification of every relationship. Concrete form of ideals.”20 Trump also has natal Moon in Sagittarius, with Saturn hovering stationary over it for some months.
The moon in Sagittarius makes a challenging square to Chiron in Pisces, the wounded healer. This “wound” may especially be about learning to listen. Sagittarius-Gemini (so prominent in his natal chart), are the worst listeners of the zodiac, Pisces the best!
4. Grand trine between Moon in Sagittarius, Uranus in Aries and Mars in Leo. This is a very powerful formation, especially as Uranus sits on the midheaven and dominates the chart. The best effect might be some revolutionary new ideas and their implementation; at worst, erratic and unpredictable behaviour, Trump’s rebellion toward those who seek to guide or unduly influence him.
Trump’s Mars and ascendant are opposite USA’s moon in Aquarius, a factor which gave him the popular vote, as the moon rules the masses. Now this dynamic is triggered again, will his voters be so enthusiastic now, given Trump’s several U-turns on the policies that got him elected? Transiting Saturn is still making a station on Trump’s moon in Sagittarius and it looks like Mars’ eclipse trigger will set a series of events in motion.
“You yourself have said the first word as the soul, descending into the womb of time and space in a far and distant past. The time has now come when you can, if you so choose, proclaim your identity with both divine aspects—matter and Spirit, the mother and the Christ.”21
Release of HHH Video and New Book
The Hidden History of Humanity video (2 hrs. 37’) has been recently released in two parts on Vimeo. Now it is available as one video on YouTube – and is downloadable. All versions can be found at this link above, including trailers. The HHH video explains the mysteries of the rootraces and cycles, Lemuria and Atlantis, and the evolution of consciousness into the coming sixth rootrace. It is the first in a series of planned videos. (It took several years to create, so please consider making a donation at the link above.)
Following soon, hopefully before Christmas, will be the release of the original The Hidden History of Humanity book, under a new name: Genesis Unveiled: Mysteries of the Rootraces and Cycles. This edition is extensively re-written and updated – it will be a weighty tome pushing almost 700 pages. The original HHH book may have been difficult to access for many students, but in this new version, there are hundreds of diagrams, tables and artwork added, that will make this complex and deeply esoteric subject much easier to comprehend.
The first one third of the original HHH book was a synthesis of The Secret Doctrine and it has now been mostly dispensed with. As the title implies, there is a greater concentration in this new book on the esoteric interpretation of Genesis, according to rootraces and cyles. But it is not only a Western interpretation, it has many Eastern elements from the Hindu and Buddhist tradition, plus plenty of that great universal esoteric key – mythology.
Genesis Unveiled is a synthesis of The Secret Doctrine, Genesis and The Book of Enoch the Prophet, augmented by the writings of the Master Dwjhal Khul through Alice A. Bailey. The following represents a few themes that are covered in this newly revised book, also discussed in the video:
1. Through the 4320 cipher, reveals and confirms the true chronology of Earth’s history.
2. Dating and precise chronology of all the rootraces and subraces since ancient Lemuria.
3. Explains the Hindu Yugas and their application in dating rootraces and civilisations.
4. Explains pre-history and the place of Earth – within and beyond the solar system.
5. Examines the geological key, timing of those eras and the emergence of humanity.
6. Untangles the diverse races and civilisations into their time periods, subraces and branchraces.
7. Compares the Hindu and Old Testament dating systems, revealing them as almost identical.
8. Turns the key of Greek Mythology, revealing and confirming rootraces and subraces.
9. Explores many civilisations and their links to one another: Persians. Akkadians, Sumerians.
Phoenicians. Zoroastrians. Hindus. Ethiopians. Mayans. Toltecs. Olmecs. Cambodians. Babylonians.
Arabs. Chaldeans. Assyrians. Moors. Jews. Afghans.
Weekend Retreat in Sweden (November 24-26)
For my Scandinavian and northern European students and co-workers, I will be offering a three day weekend retreat of meditation, esoteric astrology and esoteric history. (Friday to Sunday) It will be located in the very quiet and beautiful Swedish countryside where I live, with a 30 minute access to Skavsta or Norrkoping airports.
The workspace, accommodation and food catering that has been prepared is excellent, and will make for a very enjoyable stay. There is accommodation for 14 people, plus a B&B across the road for any extras. (I had planned to visit Norway and Denmark this year but cannot manage it in my schedule, so those students may consider visiting Sweden.) For further enquiries, please contact me via email.
And for those Swedish students who have been working in the Cosmic Fire study group, I look forward to seeing you all in our next retreat at Hillesgarden in early October.
