THE GALACTIC COSMOPOLITANS
In the astrological study of the SEVEN RAYS, there are Ray influences felt through some of the Fixed Stars. Should any of these stars connect to the natal chart of an individual then that person is believed to not only be influenced by those stars and their corresponding Rays but also aided and helped by the interdimensional beings connected to them. These beings are known as Galactic Cosmopolitans. It is at this point in human evolution impossible to describe the physical countenance of each Cosmopolitan but it is possible to describe the energetic guidance available from them.
Briefly speaking, Seven Ray Astrology is founded in Tibetan spirituality/theosophy and is concerned with the evolution of the Soul as tied to the elevation of consciousness. It is generally believed that if an individual can raise his/her personal vibratory rate sufficiently to overcome the vibratory rate of his/her natal planets, consciousness is elevated and the number of subsequent incarnations is lessened. The Rays are the custodians of the Universal Plan as designed by and depending upon individual perception, the "All-Knowing" or "Supreme Being" or "God the Father."
Each Ray embodies energy through which a specific part of Divine Will is channeled in accordance with Divine Universal Intention. From this Great Source, they travel through time and space eventually attaining Galactic Synthesis and then on until they reach the constellation Ursa Major or the Great Bear.
From Ursa Major and its seven ruling Fixed Stars, they continue to filter through three Fixed stars Polaris, Sirius, and the Pleiades and then move on to Mother Earth. They are believed to have a monumental influence on all Earth affairs making it possible for mankind to flourish.
ASTROLOGICAL TRIAD ENERGY : ARIES, LEO, CAPRICORN
ALKAID (Eta Ursa Major): The Alkaidians guide the spiritual will and support and enhance leadership abilities and skills. They know that true leadership is grounded in prudence, patience and self control. Ray 1 influenced individuals tend to be uneasy spirits whose zest for life can be easily aroused for good or ill so the Alkaidians teach the skill and advantage of learning how to be "quiet" in order that better decisions can be reached and proper action for the good of all involved can be instituted.
RAY 2 - LOVE AND WISDOM
ASTROLOGICAL TRIAD ENERGY: GEMINI, VIRGO, PISCES
MIZAR (Zeta Ursa Major): The Mizarans are said to carry the healing blue-white light of unconditional love. They are agents of goodwill. Their responsibility is Soul evolution through enlightenment. They instill the art of good counsel and finely tuned intuition which comes through the Universal Mind among those they touch. The 2nd Ray is the most dominant Ray on Earth at this time and 2nd Ray influenced individuals are attracting those who need higher love so they can share insight and healing. The Mizarans bring harmony to the auric field of those they influence so this can be accomplished.
RAY 3 - ACTIVE INTELLIGENCE
ASTROLOGICAL TRIAD ENERGY: CANCER, LIBRA, CAPRICORN
ALIOTH (Epsilon Ursa Major): The Aliothans are Universal intellectuals. They guide Soul unfoldment via higher mental abstractions. They instill creative ideation and grant the gift of skilled interpretation to those who are influenced by the 3rd Ray through this star via ancient teachings. Information may come through dreams of symbology or sacred geometry that can be philosophically communicated to others by word of mouth or writing for the greater good of all. The individual is responsible for applying all that has been learned to life.
RAY 4 - HARMONY THROUGH CONFLICT
ASTROLOGICAL TRIAD ENERGY: TAURUS, SCORPIO, SAGITTARIUS
MEGREZ (Delta Ursa Major): The Megrezians are harmonizers who teach balance and the importance of seeking the beauty of life through all relationships. 4th Ray influenced individuals tend to crash and burn various times during life and the Megrezians instill the importance of "rest" so that clarity about life's issues can be restored. The Megrezians also bring the gift of creative artistry to those they influence which includes writing, acting, and all art forms. They also instill foresight and preparation so Soul creativity can be released.
RAY 5 - CONCRETE KNOWLEDGE AND SCIENCE
ASTROLOGICAL TRIAD ENERGY: LEO, SAGITTARIUS, AQUARIUS
DUBHE (Alpha Ursa Major): This star is considered the main star of Ursa Major as it is the brightest of the seven. The Dubheans are staunch scientists who seek Universal Truth. They instill knowledge and methodology so healing can take place through a scientific approach. This includes medicine. They promote formal thought, deductive reasoning and objective learning in those they influence. They teach that an individual's greatest strength lies not in the actions taken but rather in the position held according to the "Truth." Psychic ability is often a gift of these Cosmopolitans.
RAY 6 - DEVOTION AND IDEALISM
TRIAD ENERGY: VIRGO, SAGITTARIUS, PISCES
MERAK (Beta Ursa Major): The Merakians are devotees and reformers who help individuals control their emotions and desires as these are the human traits that most often blind humankind to Universal Truth and Law. Their goal is to help mankind with spiritual advancement by opening men's eyes to negative response which is responsible for prejudice and persecution. Individuals are expected to overcome tendencies of procrastination and employ tolerance.
RAY 7 - CEREMONIAL ORDER AND MAGIC
ASTROLOGICAL TRIAD ENERGY: ARIES, CANCER, CAPRICORN
PHECDA (Gamma Ursa Major): The Phecdans are magical entities who promote order and enhance mankind's diverse faculties. They teach humans the importance of taking care of the physical body and the creative regenerative forces. On the spiritual level, the Phecdans instill great awareness in the battle of the human higher and lower natures. The Phecdans are associated with what humans term the Age of Aquarius and the influx of new Universal energies which are becoming available. They remind mankind that with each new influx of energy, a negative influence arrives before a positive one can be recognized and employed within the Earthly cycles. Humans who are influenced by this Ray/Star energy are often attracted to the occult for good or ill. The Phecdans bring light to occultism and the invisible side of nature.
From Ursa Major and its seven main stars, the Rays further filter through three more Fixed Stars, Polaris, the Pleiades, and Sirius before they infiltrate Earth.
POLARIS: This star belongs to Alpha Ursa Minor. It has been called the star of direction and reorientation since ancient times. Polaris is believed to govern Shamballa and to guide humanity upon the evolutionary path.
PLEIADES: The Pleiades is a nebula consisting of seven stars - Alcyone, Maia, Electra, Merope, Taygete, Celaeno, and Sterope in Eta Taurus. The ancients believed that the Universe revolved around the Pleiades. It also has a connection the Fates and the Judgment of the Dead. Nebulae are associated with blindness and Pleiadian energy at a higher vibe is thought to assist humankind in recognizing what it doesn't "see" in order to recognize higher Truth.
SIRIUS: This star belongs to Alpha Canis Major. It is the star that governs the Hierarchy and is said to influence our Solar System psychically via the planets Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Sirius promotes the importance of "cycles' in mainstream thought.

THE ASCENDED MASTERS
|An Ascended Master is described as a being who is an embodiment of the Light and who has raised his vibration high enough to come and go on the Earth Plane without experiencing the cycles of Life and Death. The concept of the Ascended Masters was brought to public attention via the works of Theosophist Helena Blavatsky. She claimed that her spiritual doctrines were given to her by a group of "Oriental religious teachers" or mahatmas that she knew personally.|
|HELENA BLAVATSKY||ALICE BAILEY|
Blavatsky's successors in the Theosophical Society leadership, Annie Besant and Charles W. Leadbeater, further developed the mythology of Ascended Masters, enhancing the information connected to the Master's alleged biographies and past lives. Whether there is any truth to Blavatsky's original claims to have known these "ascended beings" remains an unsolved mystery to this day. Many organizations have incorporated the Ascended Masters into their doctrines and belief systems yet the whole theory has remained enigmatic and has never been seriously investigated. There is controversial opinion that she actually fictionalized the lives of teachers she actually knew and the whole affair now seems to come down to black or white with no gray... either you believe it or you don't.
One of Blavatsky's followers and an important member of the Theosophic Movement was Alice Bailey. From Alice Bailey the world was introduced to a special brand of Esoteric Astrology based on the 7 RAYS via channelings from the Tibetan Ascended Master Dwjhal Khul. Today many new Ascended Masters have joined the original group at large and have also been assigned as additional chohans (magistrators) of the 7 RAYS.
The Ascended Masters are great spiritual teachers, healers and guides. They are non-denominational and each one has "specialty" in assisting humankind by shedding light on life's purpose.* Anyone can call upon a Master for life assistance. Here are the Ascended Masters connected to the 7 RAYS :
|EL MORYA, CHOHAN OF THE 1st RAY|
El Morya is magistrator of the 1st RAY of Will and Purpose which is governed by the Archangel Michael. El Morya is directly connected to the Temple of the Will of God and is a member of the White Brotherhood. The 1st RAY embodies the energy of drive, strength, power and leadership and El Morya's larger role is to assist those "in charge" or in positions of authority. This include world leaders, executives, sports figures and public servants like police and the military. El Morya's energy clears, elevates and shields an individual and the environment. Among El Morya's Earth incarnations are Ranbir Singh a member of the royal family of Kasmir (during that lifetime he was visited by Madame Blavatsky in India), martyrs Thomas Beckett and Thomas More, Abraham and the Wise Man Melchoir.
|DWJHAL KHUL, CHOHAN OF THE 2nd RAY|
The 2nd RAY embodies the energy of Love and Wisdom and the magistrator of this Ray, Dwjhal Khul, the "Tibetan" is a Master of Shamballa and has a heart full of love for all mankind. Dwjhal Khul is a Master of Astrology and it was he who delivered the information about the 7 RAYS to Alice Bailey. As magistrator of this Ray Dwjhal Khul collaborates with Ray governor Archangel Zophkiel handling Divine affairs, giving instruction, and teaching Mastery. Dwjhal Khul left the Earth Plane in the 1800's and it is believed that he can "bi-locate" during materializations. He works with healers, teachers (particularly mathematicians), students, philosophers, ambassadors and architects or those whose work involves geometry and angles.
|PAUL THE VENETIAN, CHOHAN OF THE 3rd RAY|
The 3rd RAY is the Ray of Active Intelligence and Paul the Venetian serves as magistrator of this Ray in collaboration with Archangel Raphael who governs 3rd Ray energies which include Soul Enlightenment, Protection and Appointments. It is generally accepted that Paul ascended on April 19, 1588 from the Chateau de Liberate in southern France. In that lifetime he embodied the persona of Paolo Caliari an Italian Renaissance painter famous for religious masterpieces. Paul's other incarnations include Head of Cultural Affairs in Atlantis, Master architect of Egypt and a painter of the Incan Empire whose works still exist. Paul can help an individual recognize and manifest artistic creativity that may be dormant - especially if personal creativity has been stifled. This includes painting, drawing, writing, photography, music or any arts and crafts.
|SERAPIS BEY, CHOHAN OF THE 4th RAY|
As magistrator of the 4th Ray of Harmony Through Conflict, Serapis Bey works closely with Ray Governor Archangel Gabriel in helping humankind with balance. The 4th Ray embodies energies that control all Influences, the Light and Water of Life. Serapis Bey is known as the Keeper of the White Flame and is considered one of the great teachers of ascension and is the only Ascended Master who works with the Seraphim. His past incarnations include a priest in Atlantis, and Egyptian Pharaohs Akhenaton IV and Amenophis. As the ultimate life coach, Serapis Bey instills humankind with the strength to move away from toxic situations, to be motivated to move forward towards desires and above all to take better care of the "Self" physically, emotionally and spiritually.
|HILARION, CHOHAN OF THE 5th RAY|
The magistrator of the 5th RAY of Concrete Knowledge and Science is Hilarion who works in collaboration with Ray Governor Archangel Zedekiel. The Ray energies include Discovery and Labors for the Kingdom of God. This is the Ray of science and is often associated with healers of all kinds from medical doctors to metaphysicians. As the embodiment of Saint Hilarion, this Master was once known as a great healer in the 4th century Middle East. His healing work was immortalized in the writings of Saint Jerome. Some also believe that he is an incarnation of the Apostle Paul. Master Hilarion is connected to the Temple of Truth and the Galactic Federation of our Solar System. He works to bring in the more scientific aspects of the New Age. He is particularly drawn to teaching humankind new technology, scientific ideas and research.
|UNIVERSAL CHRIST, CHOHAN OF THE 6th RAY|
The Universal Christ is the magistrator of the 6th RAY of Devotion and Idealism. The Ray Governor is Archangel Madimiel who directs the Ray's energies of Purpose, Zealous Readying and the Quieting of Desire. This is the Ray of "Christ Consciousness" and the Piscean Avatar who brings peace, brotherhood and freedom to all of mankind. As the polarity of the 2nd Ray, the focus of this Ray is the giving and receiving of Love to which ALL of the Ascended Masters respond. This is also the Ray of non-denominational "abstractions" that covers all types of religions and spiritual belief systems. Many missionaries, lawyers, public servants, alternative healers, social workers, blue collar workers, farmers and business people are born under this Ray or display a strong influence of this Ray.
|SAINT GERMAIN, CHOHAN OF THE 7th RAY|
One of the most well known of the Ray Masters is Saint Germain of the 7th RAY of Ceremonial Order and Magic. Saint Germain works in collaboration with Ray Governor Archangel Haniel who controls the Ray energies of Magnetic Occurrences, Revelation and Orders of Angels. Saint Germain is the Keeper of the Violet Flame and is held in high regard as the sponsor of the Unites States of America as well as the Hierarch of the Age of Aquarius. His past incarnations include Christopher Columbus, the prophet Samuel, Francis and Roger Bacon. In his incarnation as "Wonderman of Europe," a talented Renaissance man he performed many feats of magic and mystery.** Saint Germain can help an individual find his own inner power so manifestation of desires can take place through the magic of focused intention. He also supports lightworkers working towards world peace.
