"Let Rome in Tiber melt, and the wide arch
Of the ranged empire fall! Here is my space.
Kingdoms are clay . . . "—William Shakespeare

So said Marc Antony as he drew the Queen of the Nile into his embrace.

I, vi, 1. "Do I lead you by force? Compulsion is not our ally."
—El Morya, Illumination 1925

And I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and, behold, there came four chariots out from between two mountains; and the mountains were mountains of brass.

In the first chariot were red horses; and in the second chariot black horses;

And in the third chariot white horses; and in the fourth chariot grisled and bay horses.

Then I answered and said unto the angel that talked with me, What are these, my lord?

And the angel answered and said unto me, These are the four spirits of the heavens, which go forth from standing before the Lord of all the earth.

The black horses which are therein go forth into the north country; and the white go forth after them; and the grisled go forth toward the south country.

And the bay went forth, and sought to go that they might walk to and fro through the earth: and he said, Get you hence, walk to and fro through the earth. So they walked to and fro through the earth.

Then cried he upon me, and spake unto me, saying, Behold, these that go toward the north country have quieted my spirit in the north country. *

Zechariah 6, 1-8

* The tenth vision: the four chariots. The Rev. C. I. Scofield’s commentary on Zechariah 6:1-8

“The interpretation of the tenth vision must be governed by the authoritative declaration of verse 5. That which is symbolized by the four chariots with their horses is not the four world-empires of Daniel, but ‘the four spirits of heaven which go forth from standing before the Lord of all the earth’ (v. 5).

These ‘spirits’ are angels (Luke 1:19; Heb. 1:14), and are most naturally interpreted of the four angels of Rev. 7:1-3; 9:14, 15. These have also a ministry earthward, and of like nature with the ‘spirits’ of Zech. 6:1-8, viz. judgment. The symbol (chariots and horses) is in perfect harmony with this. Always in Scripture symbolism they stand for the power of God earthward in judgment (Jer. 46:9, 10; Joel 2:3-11; Nah. 3:1-7).

The vision, then, speaks of the Lord’s judgments upon the Gentile nations north and south in the day of the Lord (Isa. 2:10-22; Rev. 19:11-21).” (The Scofield Reference Bible, p. 969, n. 2.)


White Horse: War

Represents "among other eventualities, the United States engaged in wars small and great outside her borders."


Red Horse: War

Represents "among other eventualities, the Soviet Union engaged in wars small and great outside her borders."


Black Horse: Famine, Economic Debacle

Represnts "Karma created by the power elite through the manipulation of the economies of the nations and the abundant life."


Pale Horse: Death, with Hell following

"The two kill with sword, famine and plague."

"All things, actions, substances that lead to slow, sweet death or to sudden cataclysm. economic collapse and nuclear war."

Mars, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune are the four planets in Capricorn that began the current cycle of returning karma to the earth with their conjunction of February 22 to 23, 1988. The effects of this conjunction will be felt for decades, if not for the entire century to come.

The Lord God revealed to me that these four planets correspond to the Four Horsemen. If we position them in the four quadrants of the Cosmic Clock as we positioned the Four Horsemen themselves in part 4, we can learn something more about the karma they portend.

The White Horse

Uranus represents the white horse in the etheric plane. Therefore we place it in the first quadrant, where we experience the warfare of the spirit, the warfare against the Father (fig. 21). The first quadrant corresponds to the etheric plane and the etheric body.

In astrology, Uranus is the planet of sudden or unexpected change. It conveys the impulse to individual and social freedom, stimulates progress, especially in the areas of science, religion and government, and is associated with originality, altruism and group affairs, as well as anarchy, rebellion and revolution.

Uranus rules the sign of Aquarius, which is represented by the “water bearer,” who dispenses the waters of knowledge. Uranus shows how a person can establish an intuitive link with the Universal Mind. It is related to the transmission of ideas from the etheric to the other three planes, the mental, the astral and the physical.

In its negative expression, Uranus can block or pervert the intuitive links required to bring etheric ideas into manifestation. Thus Uranus can distort the religious, scientific, social and political ideas that are intended to liberate the individual and society. The result can be bondage rather than freedom.

The planet Uranus, just like the other planets in our solar system, has a Causal Body of light and perfection, which contains all of the good qualities, the good words and works, of the evolutions who have lived there. It also has a subconscious, or an electronic belt, which contains the accumulation of the negative qualifications of her lifewaves.

Whatever we magnetize to ourselves from Uranus, whether from her Causal Body or her electronic belt, we can be certain that like elements within ourselves will be the determining factor. So, if we have externalized the positive qualities associated with Uranus, we will attract to ourselves these momentums from her Causal Body. Likewise, if we are vulnerable at the subconscious level through our untransmuted karma, we will attract the negative vibrations of her electronic belt.

If the latter be the case, we will be vulnerable to the first horseman of the four, the white horse. The same will be true for the remaining three planets and the horsemen they represent. And where we have both good and bad karma there is a delicate balance. A lot depends on our free will and sense of self-determination.

When you know that Uranus corresponds to the white horse, you can take a closer look at the karmic retribution the white horse delivers. You can deal with the negative astrological portents of Uranus, delivered by the white horseman as personal and planetary karma, through prayer, preparation, dynamic decrees and service to life. And you can decide that you are not going to take on the negatives of personal and planetary karma but you are going to transmute them. You are going to take on Uranus’s Causal Body of Light, pioneer a path for the New Age in your chosen field, and call for the positive good of Almighty God to be worked through you.

The Black Horse

Saturn represents the black horse in the mental plane. Therefore we place it in the second quadrant, where we experience the ongoing warfare of the mind, the warfare against the Son. The second quadrant corresponds to the mental plane and the mental body.

Astrologers refer to Saturn as the “greater malefic,” the bearer of evil tidings, having a malignant influence. But whatever Saturn brings, it is always the karma, positive or negative, of the individual or the nation. Thus, as I have said, all of the planets are initiators initiating us as gurus according to the cycles of cause and effect that we ourselves have set in motion.

Saturn is associated with the initiations of Lord Maitreya as well as with the works of Satan. It is called the “greater malefic” because if you don’t transmute its negative aspect, it can cause the Satanic, or negative, elements of your subconscious to manifest.

Saturn rules the sign of Capricorn. It is associated with karma, restrictions and long-term problems. It is a disciplinarian. Saturn will never allow you to keep what you have not lawfully earned. It will
strip from you all ill-gotten gains, the fruits of unlawful shortcuts and the misuses of the will of God.

Saturn is the tester as well as the teacher. It rules time, responsibility, status and the status quo, political and social power, law and order, and corporations and dictatorships. It regulates abundance and poverty. Under Saturn the law will exact its recompense: To them that have
shall more be added. To them that have not shall be taken away that which they have. <1>

Saturnian problems in the economy surface as chronic shortages or restrictions due to past mismanagement of resources. Saturn’s role as teacher associates it with all activities of the mind, including education. Saturnian problems show blocks to education, such as the power elite’s planned restriction of proper learning methods to insure their own continued power and control
over the people.

In order to get to the root of the rotten education being given to our children in the public schools we have to transmute the cause and core of karma we have made under Saturn, which is, remember, the karma we have made in the mental quadrant, whose avenger is the black horse.

We have to realize that pouring more money into our schools won’t work, and hasn’t, since we spend $5,000 per student per year on elementary and secondary education and have 27 million functional illiterates, 60 percent of whom have had between six and eight years of school, according to the U.S. Bureau of the Census. South Korea’s government spends only $500 per student per year. Yet in a recent international math test, South Korean 13-year-olds came in first out of six nations and U.S. 13-year-olds came in last. U.S. students excelled at one yes/no question, however. Sixty-eight percent answered yes to the statement “I am good at mathematics.” Only 23 percent of Korean students answered yes. <2>

This is an example of Neptunian illusion. The first thing we have to do to get out of this Saturnian/Neptunian trap is to see to it that the Christ is raised up in each pupil and that our children’s teachers are representatives of the World Teachers, Jesus and Kuthumi.

In 1970 with Mark Prophet I founded Montessori International school in Colorado Springs because I was determined that my own children would not become fodder for the mills of public education. I wanted to be sure that they would learn to read and write and master basic math skills before they even reached school age. I wanted them to be independent and to be able to go on at their own pace to acquire the knowledge they needed to balance their karma and fulfill their missions in life. That school has continued to the present and it now goes through the twelfth grade.

We teach our children to read not only by the Montessori method but also by the techniques of Glenn Doman and of Romalda Spalding. <3> We use Doman’s Bits of Intelligence to expand the children’s brain capacity and Spalding’s 70 phonograms of the English language to teach them to read. From the time they are born they begin learning the sounds of the alphabet. They are shown flash cards and given the pronunciations of the phonograms. And they respond with tremendous interest and delight.

I had learned some of these methods of teaching children to read before I had my first child, who is now 25 years old. And so I taught all of my children to read by phonics in order to beat the game of the look-and-say method used in most public schools, which requires children to memorize words by their shape and appearance without understanding the individual letters and phonograms that make up those words.

Maria Montessori discovered that children go through sensitive periods in which they have the greatest aptitude for learning certain skills, whether reading, writing, math or languages. A sensitive period is the ideal time for children to learn a specific subject because they have a heightened interest in it and the greatest facility in literally absorbing its entire contents.

If children pass through these sensitive periods without being properly taught the subjects they are capable of learning, they may be afflicted for the rest of their lives. It’s much more difficult to learn to read and write as a teenager or an adult, because you have to go back and pick up dropped stitches.

But the problems in education aren’t just the methods that are being used. We don’t solve problems simply by having good ideas or putting programs into action. We must inject the sacred fire, the violet flame and the calls for Divine Intercession into our work.

In combatting the controls of the power elite, we are dealing with, as Paul said, principalities and powers and spiritual wickedness in high places. <4> We are dealing with unseen forces, subconscious forces and the evil of the fallen angels who have manipulated the minds and intelligence of our people, even genetically, all the way back to Atlantis and prior civilizations.

The Red Horse

Mars, which has a red cast in the heavens, represents the red horse in the astral plane. Therefore we place it in the third quadrant, where we experience the warfare of the soul and the warfare against the Mother and the Divine Manchild. The third quadrant corresponds to the astral plane and the emotional, or desire, body.

Mars is the planet of action based on desire. It is associated with activity, courage, self-reliance, executive authority, passion, combativeness, anger, aggression, sexuality and ambition. It rules wars, battles, crime, military and police forces, surgeons, engineers, terrorists, explosions, fires and bloodshed.

Mars rules the sign of Aries, which expresses both the pioneering spirit and rash, self-centered action. Mars also traditionally rules Scorpio, which governs, among other things, secrecy and warfare.

Mars is known as the “lesser malefic.” In its negative manifestation Mars expresses itself in all forms of warfare. When Mars is afflicting your chart, you can get into explosive and heated arguments if you are not in God-control of yourself and the situation. When you get into these arguments you often realize afterwards that they are “not like you.” If you examine your astrology, you will most likely see that you were dealing with Martian energies at that time and didn’t know it. And if you did know it, you probably didn’t pay attention to it or make the calls to Archangel Michael for your protection.

So keep an eye on your astrology. Watch out. And don’t get into arguments with anybody when Mars is passing through critical places in your chart. When you are awake and alive and aware and know about transits and afflictions, you can gain the mastery of your life even in the midst of negative astrology and planetary chaos.

The Pale Horse

Neptune represents the pale horse in the physical plane. Therefore we place it in the fourth quadrant, where we experience the warfare of the flesh, the warfare against the Holy Spirit. The fourth quadrant corresponds to the physical plane and the physical body.

Neptune is the planet of mysticism, spirituality and illumination. It is also the planet of chaos, confusion, delusion, deception, treachery and scandal. Neptune is associated with drug and alcohol abuse and is one indicator of sexual perversion. It rules the ocean, liquids, swamps, drugs, medicines, gases and poisons. In the social sphere it rules democratic and popular movements, the common people, epidemics, social unrest and socialism. Neptune also governs the national taste for music and the arts.

We have seen that historically, when combined with Saturn, Neptune is related to the aggressive expansion of World Communism. (We may expect to see an expansion of World Communism in the years after the February 1988 Saturn-Neptune conjunctions.)

Neptune rules Pisces, the sign that on the positive side indicates liberation through ultimate self-sacrifice, and on the negative side indicates physical or psychological imprisonment due to self-delusion. Neptune rules matters that are often shrouded from public sight but that have physical consequences, such as drug abuse and the transmission of venereal diseases.

You can see that with every planet you have a choice. You can outpicture either the high road of the higher octaves and virtues of Light or the low road of the astral plane. Some people are creatures of their negative astrology. They outpicture it to the letter. Others stand independent and apart from their negative astrology because they are determined not to be moved by its influences; they are ruled by the divine astrology of their Causal Body of Light, with its points of reference to their past victories and their momentums of initiations successfully passed.

"We are determined to reverse the tide by a strong and united City Foursquare of United States and Canada. And this larger square, finding its heart in the Inner Retreat, will be the very base and stronghold of the powers of Light and the chelas to move forth and roll back the entire momentum and the effect of the Four Horsemen when they are spent. Let us pray that their spending be swift. Let us pray that the cycles of their coming be shortened for the elect. Let us pray that the elect are out of harm's way and that they be sealed as the servants of God in their foreheads."
