The Evening Star


“NO STAR among the countless myriads that twinkle over the sidereal fields of the night sky,” writes Helena Blavatsky, “shines so dazzlingly as the planet Venus.”

“Venus is the queen among our planets, the crown jewel of our solar system.”

“She is the inspirer of the poet, the guardian and companion of the lonely shepherd,” she writes, “the lovely morning and the evening star.”

“For, ‘Stars teach as well as shine,’ although their secrets are still untold and unrevealed to the majority of men, including astronomers.”

“They are ‘a beauty and a mystery,’ verily.”

δ

“This story shall now be told,” she says, “for the benefit of those who may have neglected their astral mythology.”

“Venus, characterised by Pythagoras as the sol alter, a second Sun, on account of her magnificent radiance – equalled by none other was the first to draw the attention of ancient Theogonists.”

“Before it began to be called Venus, it was known in pre-Hesiodic theogony as Eosphoros (or Phosphoros), and Hesperos, the children of the dawn and twilight.”

May It Be

The Enya song performed by Lisa Kelly of Celtic Woman— from “The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring,” featuring J.R.R. Tolkien’s Quenya Elvish lyrics within the song.

ξ

May it be an evening star,
Shines down upon you.
May it be when darkness falls
Your heart will be true
You walk a lonely road
Oh, how far you are from home

Mornié utúlié (darkness has come)
Believe and you will find your way
Mornié alantié (darkness has fallen)
A promise lives within you now

May it be the shadows call
Will fly away
May it be your journey on
To light the day
When the night is overcome
You may rise to find the sun

Mornié utúlié (darkness has come)
Believe and you will find your way
Mornié alantié (darkness has fallen)
A promise lives within you now

Our Sister Planet

“Every Universe (world or planet) has its own Logos” [the manifested unity at the head of any hierarchy], says Blavatsky. “According to the Occult Doctrine,

“Venus or Lucifer (also Sukra and Usanas), is our Earth’s primary. ”

Ξ

θ

“Every world has its parent star and sister planet. Venus or Lucifer is the light-bearer of our Earth, in both its physical and mystic sense: the occult sister and alter-ego of the Earth.”

“Earth is the adopted child and younger brother of Venus, but its inhabitants are of their own kind.”

ς

“Every change on Sukra (Venus) is felt on, and reflected by, the Earth,” according to The Secret Doctrine, and “the archaic tradition states that Venus changes simultaneously (geologically) with the Earth.”

“Whatever takes place on the one takes place on the other. Every active power or force of the Earth comes to her from one of the seven Lords.

“Light comes through Sukra (Venus), who receives a triple supply, and gives one-third of it to the Earth.”

ς

“Therefore the two are called ‘Twin-sisters,’ but the Spirit of the Earth is subservient to the ‘Lord’ of Sukra.”

You Raise Me Up

(Celtic Woman)


When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary;
When troubles come and my heart burdened be;
Then, I am still and wait here in the silence,
Until you come and sit awhile with me.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up: To more than I can be.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up: To more than I can be.

There is no life – no life without its hunger;
Each restless heart beats so imperfectly;
But when you come and I am filled with wonder,
Sometimes, I think I glimpse eternity.

Other Planets

“Most of the planets, as the stars beyond our system, are inhabited,” Blavatsky writes in The Secret Doctrine — in addition, “all the conditions of life, even as we know it, are present on some at least.”

“Furthermore,” she argues:

“… since no single atom in the entire Kosmos is without life and consciousness, how much more then its mighty globes?”

δ

But we humans are uninitiated and untrained, and do not even know ourselves, she chides, nor can we “penetrate the consciousness of the smallest of the animals around us.”

Therefore the consciousness of forms of life on other planets must:

“… remain sealed books to us men who can hardly enter even into the consciousness of the forms of life nearest us.”

Ø

Such knowledge and intercourse is possible for the Great Adepts and trained seers, she assures her students, “because they have learned how to penetrate to planes of consciousness which are closed to the perceptions of ordinary men.”
