"In delivering the prophecy of the
Lord, I look to astrology for corroboration. By astrology
it is possible to chart the time and manner in which persons,
institutions, nations and planets receive their karma and
their initiations. Every sign of the zodiac and every planet
is an initiator and can play the role of guru in our life.
"It is not our astrology that creates
us but it is we who create our astrology. That’s why
we could have 10 people in this room all born at the same
time and the same place—in other words, with identical
birth charts—and yet every one of them would be different.
"Our astrology at birth has encoded
within it the sum of karma that the Lords of Karma have
decreed we will face in this life. And when karma returns
we are tested. How will we meet it? Will we collapse and
fold up, or will we decide to face it and conquer it? Each
individual will respond to his astrology, hence his karma,
according to the psychology of personality developed through
"If we look at astrology as a psychic
prediction that is final, then we might as well believe
in predestination and accept that we are hapless victims
of our fate. Not so the sons and daughters of God. We see
our astrology, our karma and our initiations as challenges
to be relished. We run to greet them. When we see potentially
negative configurations in our charts, we rise to the occasion
and to the altar. We call to God and we direct his Light
into that point of vulnerability within ourselves.
"What we think of as “bad”
astrology really indicates our own karmic vulnerability.
It tells us that we will be vulnerable to a particular transit
and the momentums it will deposit on our doorstep on a day
and hour that can be foreknown. And the Ascended Masters
tell us that unless we reinforce the Light in our chakras
and give our violet flame decrees to transmute that returning
karma which the transit portends, we will suffer loss.
"All of the planets in this solar
system have a collective unconscious, a collective momentum
of the negatives that their evolutions have brought forth.
They also have a collective Higher Consciousness, which
consists of the positive momentums that their evolutions
have brought forth. This is true of stars and more distant
energy sources as well. So when we reap good karma and bad
karma, both are multiplied by the energy field of the planets
as they are configured in our astrological charts.
" . . . Today the Four Horsemen are
riding up and down the nation. In fact, they’re globe-trotting.
They are about to deliver a physical karma to a people who
are physically unprepared. At the subconscious level the
souls of the people know this. So the depression of their
own subconscious sets in and they say: 'We’re not
ready for this. We can’t handle it. How are we going
to deal with it?'
"The chelas of the Ascended Masters
deal with it by calling to the Holy Spirit for the violet
flame and then directing it into those troublesome conditions
of consciousness and the planetary sense of foreboding.
We call to the legions of Light to bind that astral force
of depression. We call to the Seven Archangels for divine
intercession and we sing to them.
"And through this calling upon the
name of the Lord, I AM THAT I AM, as the prophet Joel said,
we are delivered. And we see a clearing of the depression
and a lifting of the weight so that we can truly deal with
the challenges of the physical karma that the Four Horsemen
deliver. But tackling this misqualified substance on a planetary
scale is no small challenge.
" . . . The February 1988 Capricorn
conjunction marked the beginning of a period of economic
contraction that could be even more severe than the Great
Depression. The earliest sign of this Capricorn cycle was
the great stock market crash of October 19, 1987. We have
now entered a period of economic downturn during which the
era of financial expansion related to oil and international
finance has come to a halt and national economies have started
and will continue to contract.
"There are a number of things we can
expect in the years following this conjunction in Capricorn.
Nations will become conservative and reactionary, there
will be massive debt liquidation, the real price of commodities
will fall and a pessimistic mood will sweep the earth. A
crash in the real estate market is likely.
"The potential for war is great and
the United States government will be in danger of being
destroyed or reformed beyond recognition. In the United
States we could either see revolution or a collapse into
fascist repression. We can also expect major cataclysm.
" . . . I am telling you what could
happen if there occurred an unrestrained release of the
karma that these astrological configurations portend. But
these conditions can be mitigated if the Lightbearers call
forth the Light and sustain it. When we do our work and
hold our prayer vigils worldwide, we can see a lessening
of the effects of these astrological portents.

"You have to realize that your God
Presence is able to change the entire planet through you.
You must not feel puny and decide that your mantras do not
have an effect. They have a stupendous effect. You are a
multiplier of God’s Light that flows through your
" . . . The Dark Cycle also amplifies
the conjunction of Mars, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune in Capricorn
that was at its tightest on February 22 to 23, 1988. (Students
of the Cosmic Clock will be interested to note that the
conjunction took place at the beginning of the 10 o’clock
month of the Dark Cycle in Cancer.)
"The chart for April 23, 1969, the
beginning of the Dark Cycle, is characterized by not one
but two Fingers of God (fig. 9). The appearance of one Finger
of God is infrequent. The appearance of two is rare. A Finger
of God (also called a Yod) is formed when two planets that
are sextile (60 degrees apart) are both quincunx (150 degrees
apart from) a third planet. They form an acute, fingerlike
isosceles triangle in space.
"The more prominent of the two Fingers
of God dominates this chart. It contains six planets, including
the Sun and all of the outer planets—Jupiter, Saturn,
Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. This Finger of God is formed
by a conjunction of Saturn at 29 degrees Aries and the Sun
at 2 degrees Taurus quincunx Neptune at 28 degrees Scorpio
and also quincunx a rare Jupiter-Uranus-Pluto conjunction—Pluto
at 22 degrees Virgo, Jupiter at 27 degrees Virgo and Uranus
at 0 degrees Libra. It points to the
karmic necessity for self-sacrificing, innovative spiritual
solutions and activity in a practical mode in the spheres
of government, the economy, social institutions and agriculture.

"The second Finger of God is formed
by a sextile of Mercury at 17 degrees Taurus to the Moon
at 12 degrees Cancer, both quincunx Mars at 16 degrees Sagittarius.
This shows the potential for a periodic
eruption of wars and battles due to anger, resentment and
unconscious aggressive forces. [highlighted
"This chart does not have any planets
in Capricorn. But the Dark Cycle itself, like all cycles,
starts on the 12 o’clock line in the sign of Capricorn
and progresses around the Cosmic Clock from the Capricorn
point of origin.
On March 25, 1989, Surya said:
"'You are given to understand that
the Dark Cycles that are appearing are a conclusion of ages
of the return of karma; and this karma is becoming physical.
And therefore as you go from the Dark Cycle of April 23,
1989, to April 23, 1990 and 1991, you will be seeing a greater
physical manifestation of that which is now predominantly
in the astral plane, although there be much in the physical
octave that is the returning karma of thousands of years.'
" . . . Let us look at the astrology
of war. There are three major astrological indexes of peace
and war that have accurately predicted positive periods
of harmony, growth, optimism and peace as well as negative
periods of destabilization, disruption and decay. In the
late 1980s and early 1990s these indexes will be in the
depths of their negative cycle, indicating conflict of the
magnitude of past world wars.
"The indexes were discovered by French
astrologers Henri-Joseph Gouchon and Claude Ganeau based
on the zodiacal proximity of the five outer planets, Jupiter
"As astrologer Charles Harvey explains,
Gouchon 'found that by calculating the total angular separation
between each of the pairs of the outer planets' (Jupiter-Saturn,
Jupiter-Uranus, etc.) on an annual basis 'and then plotting
the results on a graph, the resulting curve showed a striking
correspondence with the main periods of international crisis
and, most impressively, major and sustained ‘lows’
for the period 1914-18 and 1944-45.'
"Astrologer Andre Barbault called
this the 'Cyclical Index.' The Korean War, the Suez Crisis
and the Vietnam War also correspond with a negative slope
on the graph. Ganeau developed two variations of the Cyclical
Index, the 'Index of Cyclic Equilibrium' and the 'Index
of Cyclical Variation.'
"In February 1988, as part of the
larger Capricorn configuration, Saturn and Uranus formed
a conjunction at 0 degrees Capricorn. Historically, Saturn-Uranus
conjunctions, squares and oppositions have heralded war,
even without the presence of other complicating factors.
"Since we are discussing war on planet
earth in the twentieth century, we must consider the astrological
charts of the two largest players on the world stage—the
United States of America and the Union of Soviet Socialist
"Many astrologers believe the United
States was born on July 4, 1776. This would give the nation
a Cancer Sun. The Ascended Master El Morya explained to
me that the United States was conceived at 5:13 p.m. local
mean time (LMT) on July 4, 1776, the moment of the signing
of the Declaration of Independence, and that she was born
at 1:30 p.m. LMT on April 30, 1789, when George Washington
was inaugurated and the federal government first assumed
its formal powers. Thus the Sun in the U.S. conceptional
chart is at 13 degrees 19 minutes Cancer, and the Sun in
the U.S. birth chart is at 10 degrees 46 minutes Taurus.
"El Morya also revealed that the Soviet
Union was born at 3 p.m. Eastern European time (EET), November
7, 1917, when Lenin proclaimed to the Petersburg Soviet,
'Now begins a new era in the history of Russia, and this
third Russian revolution must finally lead to the victory
of Socialism.' The Soviet Sun is at 14 degrees 33’
"The U.S. natal Sun at 10 degrees
46 minutes Taurus and the Soviet natal Sun at 14 degrees
33’ Scorpio are in polarity. In astrological terms
they form an opposition, which can show either union and
cooperation or separation and conflict. Since this polarity
involves the nations’ Suns (which represent the national
identity and leadership), it shows that at times the United
States and the Soviet Union are cooperative and at other
times not. In general, however, the superpowers are likely
to be cooperating and competing, at once friends and enemies.
"Pressure on the superpowers has increased
since Pluto began its transit between 12 degrees and 18
degrees Scorpio in January 1988. Between then and October
1991, Pluto makes three exact conjunctions with the Soviet
Sun opposed the U.S. Sun . Since Pluto takes 248 years to
orbit the Sun, this is the first time in the history of
the Soviet Union that this configuration has taken place.
Pluto transits of this sort are associated with the outbreak
of wars and with mortal challenges other than war.
" . . . We are at the start of a new
age. Astrologers have had a hard time trying to decide when
the age of Aquarius began or will begin. Although most estimates
are fairly close to the year 2000, they range from 1762
"On January 1, 1989, at 5:57 p.m.
mountain standard time (MST), Archangel Michael gave us
the key to the new beginnings of the age of Aquarius. He
said: 'We move into the New Age today. Today, I say, is
the first and most important step. Today is the step of
the resolution for the next 2,000 years. Blessed hearts,
this is the springboard to eternity and you will require
every step to be the right step and the direct step.'
"This is the conceptional chart for the age of Aquarius:
its Sun is at 11 degrees 37 minutes Capricorn, its Ascendant
is at 25 degrees 47 minutes Cancer and its Moon is at 14
degrees 3 minutes Scorpio. Although it doesn’t have
any planets in Aquarius (fig. 17), it has a total of five
planets in Capricorn: Uranus at 1 degree Capricorn, Saturn
at 5 degrees Capricorn and Neptune at 9 degrees Capricorn
are conjoined the Sun at 11 degrees Capricorn. And Mercury
is at 28 degrees Capricorn.
"This chart’s natal Sun at 11
degrees 37 minutes Capricorn is close to an axis formed
by two important fixed stars, Sirius at 13 degrees Cancer
and Vega at 15 degrees Capricorn. What does this tell us?
Capricorn represents the Father, or the yang; and Cancer
represents the Mother, or the yin. Sirius represents the
Father and Vega represents the Mother. This axis shows that
before the Aquarian age can lock into the physical octave,
the axis of planet earth must be righted. The hierarchy
of Aquarius requires all to come into alignment with this
line of the Father-Mother principle, or the divine Tao.
"Since the Aquarian age takes its
first and most important 'pre-dawn' step, which is resolution,
with five planets in Capricorn, it takes its thrust from
Capricorn. The intense cluster of Capricorn planets anchors
the Aquarian influences and the unbalanced karma from the
age of Pisces and other previous cycles. In other words,
we do not approach the age of Aquarius with a clean white
page. We bring with us the residue of unbalanced karma.
"The Capricorn planets in this chart
also resonate with and amplify the essential characteristics
of the Capricorn conjunction of February 1988. As the conceptional
chart of an age, this January 1, 1989 chart can be compared
to the conceptional chart of a person who has a great mission
and a great opportunity but who during gestation must first
settle his accounts and come into alignment with the God
Star. The God Star is another name for Sirius, which, as
I said, holds a key position in this chart.
"Aquarius is destined to be an age
of economic, political, social and spiritual freedom as
well as an age of technological innovation. This is due
to the unique characteristics of the sign of Aquarius and
its ruling planet, Uranus, which convey the impulse for
freedom, individuality and innovation while at the same
time ruling group and community affairs.
"But it is not at all certain that
the golden age will ever become physical. What we say and
do here on earth in our lifetime may determine whether the
golden age of Aquarius will become a reality.
"I ask you to share with me today
the sense of accountability and responsibility that I have,
and that I believe all citizens of the world must have,
for which way the planetary evolution will go and whether
or not there will ever be an Aquarian age of freedom, peace
and enlightenment. I would like you to know that that question
hangs in the balance today before the Four and Twenty Elders.
At this moment the Darkness upon earth has become so great
it is not known if the next 2,000 years can be a golden
age or if anything thereafter can be a golden age.
"Nevertheless, it is the divine plan
for the age of Aquarius to be a golden age. And it is the
freewill option of those of us in embodiment to outpicture
that divine plan while we yet have life and breath and hope
and opportunity. If it were not the divine plan, we wouldn’t
even have a hope of a chance, or a breath of a prayer, to
bring it about. But the divine plan does exist as an etheric
matrix, a pattern hanging just above our heads, waiting
to be lowered.
"But where are the vessels? Where
are the instruments? Where are those millions of souls who
were supposed to have embodied in the last 20 years to usher
in the golden age? I’ll tell you where they are. They
were aborted and their life mission along with them. And
today 22,000,000 of them are waiting in the wings on the
etheric plane for another opportunity to play their parts
on stage seven of planet earth.
"Abortion is another plot that the
fallen ones have put upon us. And therefore the very lifestreams
that were being sent to earth to help bring in the New Age
of Aquarius are not in embodiment today. They have been
denied life in the name of 'freedom of choice.' This is
the mass deception that has been put upon men and women
today—that life in the
womb is not Life.
"Abortion is the desecration of desecrations
of all centuries. It is the abomination of desolation standing
in the holy place where it ought not, which is one of the
signs that precedes the Second Coming of Christ.
"This is the holocaust of our time
that has made us America the vulnerable.
" . . . Astrological portents of great
good are not automatic. They are not predestined any more
than negative karma is predestined. The key is that we have
to work the works of God and make those portents a reality
where we are.
"The fallen ones also read astrology.
And when they see a blessing from God coming they move in
and they try to nip it in the bud, to dash the cup from
our lips before we are able to drink that elixir.
"So we need to call for the protection
of these portents of great good, of the Christ manifesting
en masse in the people of a planet under the aegis of the
Woman clothed with the Sun and her Divine Manchild.
"We must look at both sides
of astrology and recognize that free will and our presence
in embodiment are the factors that determine whether the
Good or the Evil will triumph."
