Source of the second ray
One of the ‘big three’ at the root of esoteric astrology, Sirius is the source of Ray 2 for our solar system.
Relation to Scorpio
“Scorpio is under the influence or inflowing energy of Sirius. This is the great star of initiation because our Hierarchy (an expression of the second aspect of divinity) is under the supervision or spiritual magnetic control of the Hierarchy of Sirius. These are the major controlling influences whereby the cosmic Christ works upon the Christ principle in the solar system, in the planet, in man and in the lower forms of life expression. It is esoterically called the “brilliant star of sensitivity.” (page?)
“Scorpio is the great constellation which influences the turning point both in the life of humanity and the life of the individual human being. For the first time in the history of both mankind and disciples the energy of Sirius, pouring into the seven groups which form our planetary Hierarchy evokes a response.” (page?)
You have consequently in connection with the path of discipleship the following lines of “influential energy”:
- Sirius—working in a sevenfold manner through the seven rays and their seven groups as these constitute the active Hierarchy.
- The Fixed Cross—a fusion of four major energies, pouring into our solar system, on to our planet and through humanity.
- Scorpio—an aspect of the Fixed Cross, of peculiar and specialised potency upon the Path of Discipleship and preparing, with its tests and trials:
a. The process of re-orientation, whereby a man mounts the Fixed Cross and leaves the Mutable Cross.
b. The disciple for the first, second and third initiations. After the third initiation, its peculiar testing potency is no longer felt.
