CHAPTER V - Three Major Constellations and the Zodiac
Three Major Constellations and the Zodiac
There exists at this time an inter-relation between three of the constellations upon which I would like somewhat to enlarge, because their potency and the climax of their inter-relation is being reached at this time. From 1975 on, that potency will greatly lessen until it fades out. The period of this interplay of three major energies and their focussed potent effect upon our planet began in 1875, achieved momentum in 1925, will reach its highest expression (for good or evil) in 1945 and will then decline slowly until 1975. These three constellations are: Leo, Capricorn and Pisces. These are curiously and most mysteriously related to the fourth kingdom in nature and therefore to the evolution and the destiny of the human family. Add to these the emerging energy of Aquarius, and you have four energies which are playing upon the vehicles of men and producing peculiar effects—both destructive and constructive.
Twice before has this relation and intensification of vibration occurred: At the time of the coming of the Sons of Mind to the Earth during the Lemurian age and once in the Atlantean period at the climax of the conflict between the Lords of the Dark Face and the Lords of the Shining Countenance. (See Volume II of The Secret Doctrine or the Vishnu Purana. A.A.B.) In the earlier activity, the fourth active constellation was Gemini and in the Atlantean  it was Sagittarius. The effect then was on the physical plane (the earliest was on the mental) and the great Flood eventuated to which the Bible bears testimony. It brought about the destruction of the humanity of the time, but released the indwelling life for further experience and development.
