I think we have found the principles of the Eighth Ray projection
based upon the work recently come about on the Anthroposophy board.
I would like to put this forward as a creative expression of this
work. Any views or comments, agrees or disagrees will be gladly
Thank you to Alice Bailey for laying the foundation of the Seven
Rays. With great respect for her work trusting in providence she has
our approval as we introduce a New Ray The Eighth Ray.
The Moon uniting with the Earth is the Order of Principle for the
Although this uniting may be in the future it will according to the
evolution of Earth happen. I feel signs of this uniting are evident
in the amount of flooding the world has experienced recently over the
past few years and this uniting may be linked with the so called
The Eighth Ray sacred Planet Pluto Ray of Transformation and
The Eighth Ray in linked with the will to end outworn forms bringing
transformation and transmutation so vital and basic that man
eventually becomes the new and Living One.
The Eighth Ray projects through-
Scorpio exoteric planet the Mars, esoteric planet the Mars
Cancer exoteric planet the sacred Moon, esoteric planet Neptune
Capricorn exoteric planet Saturn, esoteric planet Saturn.
If I may put forward my workings out:
Pluto is the esoteric planet of Pisces, representing the slow but
eventual ending of the Piscean Age in to the Aquarian Age.
Pluto has been linked to Osiris and this rich symbology is told very
well by Stephen Hale in our conversation on Antichthon:
`This would entail thinking moving in direct relation to this solid
mineral perception, and the rather pure deductions of the
philosophers, including Pythagoras' perception of the Antichtonic
world, would be driven further and further below perception, as
the 'induced' view of the world as a horizontal plane superimposed
itself over the originating spherical view known to the Greeks'.
And enriched by Bradford, holderlin66, writings;
"How we measure the growth of the Christ into the sphere of humanity,
is by following the direct stage, by stage, enhancement by
enhancement, build up by build up of the general miracles....as the
kindled Logos in the individuals and in the specialized Initiation of
Lazarus, that reaches over the divide of the world of Spirit and
Matter where Christ rebuilds the Bridge that he crossed in coming
into our realm and adds the super-NOVA forces that shine from lazarus
back into the realm of the gods, so that the gods knew that suddenly
a super-force had awakened in humanity. "But in raising the issue of
the 13th century initiation of Christian Rosenkreuz, the entire super
model of a new super nova seen in the astral light from
Golgotha....the Super Nova happened and how it happened must be
grasped by even the cleverest of the intellects. From TWELVE
streams that now flow into a person who has digested and reconfigured
the LOGOS into human consciousness via the Lazarus Initiation, due to
the direct recovery of the Logos in Man via the Christ, the
restoration of the Logos through the Lazarus/John and Christianity as
(message 14802 on the same Anthroposophy board)
Osiris may be seen as Lazarus raised from the dead. Very much the
theme of Pluto.
I believe in the near future The Spiritual Sun, The Hermetic Sun
will be accorded His Ray. The above writings express the birth of
this Ray - The Hermetic Sun is representative of the force which
raised Lazarus from the dead. I imagine Venus will be linked with
However before birth there is a dying and a becoming, represented by
the Eighth Ray. As Tom on the Anthroposophy World board quoted
Goethe's mystical words (message 53):
Stirb und Werde!
Und so lang du das nicht hast,
Dieses: Stirb und Werde!
Bist du nur ein trüber Gast
Auf der dunklen Erde.
Die and be reborn!
Die and be reborn!
Die and be reborn!
If you do not die and be reborn,
You are but a gloomy guest
Upon this dark and dreary earth.
St. Paul also beautifully wrote : I die daily.
I have chosen these Zodiac signs as the signs whom project the Eighth
Scorpio - The sign of the transformation - the Scorpion to the
Eagle. Scorpio is linked with the planet Pluto and rules the eighth
house, the Occult house which governs regeneration. The lower ego to
the higher Self. A struggle represented by Scorpio's planet Mars, the
planet of war the wrestle between the desire and sensual instincts
belonging to the sense world and the freedom from these desires which
raises self into the spirit-world which belongs to freedom.
In its lower phase, Scorpio debases and stings the man, sometimes to
the death, so that man may be aroused and awakened to the light of
truth, and it is through such transmutation that Scorpio is the
Eagle. In this higher phase of the Eagle, we see the man of powerful
thought and ultra-keen insight into people and things. The
regenerative function is thus seen to reside in this magical sign,
which rules death, the dead, and the raising from the dead raising
from the scorpion to the eagle that soars above the mountain tops and
whose flight has more to do with the heavens than with the earth.
Cancer Is the Moon and the esoteric planet thereof is Neptune the
higher octave of the Moon. Neptune is linked with Pisces. Neptune
has a dissolving influence (global warming). Cancer is the
Metamorphosis spoken about under John Jocelyn's Zodiac writings The
great leap made possible by the Lunar forces from the Moon
representing collective consciousness into the Sun representing the
individualized Self in Christ consciousness.
A leap-over from the Old Dispensation of Jehovah and the Moon to the
New Dispensation of the Christ and the Sun. Jehovah then
relinquished right and rule as the Plenipotentiary of the Moon in the
education of humanity, to the Christ from the Sun, who came not to
destroy the law but to fulfill it with his grace and truth.
Capricorn is the sign of Initiation, the goat through steady
climbing of the mountain becomes the unicorn, its sublime magnitude,
and its major effect to individualize man, making him a soul
quickened by the Spirit, one of a great whole, yet with a distant
sense of individuality. This comes through the Father Saturn /
Chronos the keeper and guardian of Time. Being the guardian of karma
through time and the Moon the dwelling place of where karma is kept
before descent into the Spirit world and collected upon descent into
Saturn, as Chronos, is Father Time, the Guardian of Time. As the
Cosmic Recorder, it is the planet of cosmic memory. The Saturn-
beings have recorded everything that has happened since `in the
beginning' the Saturn Period, when human evolution began. Saturn
imparts to man retentive memory. It is also the producer of a silent
power, the fruit of patience through many lives of helpful
`Lao the Master said, The Great Tao has no bodily form, but It
produced and nourishes heaven and earth. The Great Tao has no
passions, but It causes the sun and moon to revolve as they do. The
Great Tao has no name, but It effects the growth and maintenance of
all things. I do not know Its name, but I make an effort, and call
It the Tao'.

Please offer any comments or thoughts on the New Eighth Ray and
whether you think the Zodiac signs are the correct ones. Thanks.
