Neptune Compilation
From Esoteric Astrology, by Alice A. Bailey

See Michael Robbins' Tapestry of the Gods, Volume III

1.       Neptune (as Esoteric Ruler of Cancer) Relates Cancer to Scorpio (Esoterically Ruled by Mars): (cf. EA 66)

2.       Neptune (and Mars) Relate Cancer with Scorpio:
“Cancer and Scorpio, through Neptune and Mars, are related to Ray 6. Transformation of the mass consciousness into the inclusive consciousness of the disciple. The Triumphant Disciple.” (EA 67)

3.       Neptune (as Hierarchical Ruler of Cancer) Relates Cancer to Sagittarius (Hierarchically Ruled by Mars): (cf. EA 68)

4.       Neptune (with Venus and Jupiter) Active at the Second Initiation:
“At the second initiation, the candidate comes under the influence of three planets—Neptune, Venus and Jupiter. The three centres—solar plexus, heart and throat—are actively involved.” (EA 70)

5.       The Seventh Ray is Transmitted Through Neptune Via Cancer:
“VII. Ceremonial Order—Cancer, the Crab—Moon—Neptune.” (EA 86)

6.       Alan Leo Assigned Neptune as the Ruler of Pisces:
“It is interesting to note that the astrologer, Alan Leo, suggests Neptune as an alternative to Jupiter. He sensed and touched upon a mystery of initiation though he did not realise the magnitude of his discovery. Neptune focusses the influence of Pisces as it concerns humanity as a whole and not just the individual man, but this only takes place towards the final stages of the Path of Discipleship. Today humanity is moving rapidly towards the position of the World Disciple, and intuiting this, he suggests Neptune as an alternative to Jupiter.” (EA 128)

7.       Neptune Falls in Capricorn:
“The symbolism underlying the astrological fact that Mars is exalted in Capricorn, whilst the power of the Moon is lessened in that sign, and Jupiter and
Neptune both fall, is significantly beautiful and instructive. … It is to the ‘fall’ of the highest aspect that the symbolism refers, and then later to the fall or disappearance of all that is base and low. Love is fallen and blinded when desire is rampant; desire vanishes when love triumphs. Neptune is often spoken of as falling in this sign and for the same reasons. Neptune is the God of the waters, and is esoterically related to Pisces. It should be noted that both Neptune and Jupiter are exalted in Cancer, the great sign wherein the desire for incarnation finds its fulfilment; the power of both is lessened in Virgo, wherein the first signs of the Christ consciousness are felt; both fall in Capricorn, when the Christ life and consciousness come to full fruition.” (EA 171)

8.       Neptune Involved in the Relation Between Cancer and Scorpio:
“Scorpio is also most interestingly connected with the constellation, Cancer, through the influences of the sixth ray, for it should be remembered that that ray is also expressing itself through Neptune, but in a spiritual and esoteric manner. Neptune governs Cancer esoterically.”
(EA 217)

9.       [Neptune is] subjective and full of life.” (EA 217)

10.   Esoteric Meanings of the Cancer-Neptune Relationship:
A great mystery is veiled and hidden in the above relationship, for Cancer-Neptune is expressive of the seventh ray which rules and controls the eighth Creative Hierarchy. This is one of the five Hierarchies whose names are unknown to us and this particular one stands upon the verge of liberation. At the same time it is closely connected with the mind principle as it works out through the solar Angels or through the human hierarchy. It is related to the birth of the fourth Creative Hierarchy in a sense not to be understood by anyone below the stage of the fourth initiation, but it is an interesting fact to remember for it is in the connection between the sixth and seventh rays that that potent ‘desire for incarnation’ was aroused which resulted in the fall of the angels in primordial times.” (EA 217-218)

11.   Neptune (and Mars) in the Cancer-Scorpio Relationship Lead to Sagittarius:
“This sixth ray influence coming from three angles—orthodox, esoteric and hierarchical—and hence involving both Neptune and Mars—predisposes the race and individual man as well to become one-pointed disciples in Sagittarius.” (EA 218)

12.   Neptune Related to the Development of Group Consciousness:
“... through the influence of Mercury and Neptune the group consciousness of the individual is developed ...”
(EA 219)

13.   Neptune Known as the Initiator:
“In this world period and in a peculiar manner, as far as the race (Aryan) to which the Western world belongs,
Neptune is known esoterically as the Initiator. In certain ancient formulas, the great Teacher of the West and the present world Initiator, Christ, is spoken of as Neptune, Who rules the ocean, whose trident and astrological symbol signifies the Trinity in manifestation and Who is the ruler of the Piscean Age.” (EA 219)

14.   An Archaic Formula Related to Neptune:
“The formula runs as follows, speaking esoterically: ‘...the fish goddesses who have leapt from earth (Virgo) to water (Pisces) unitedly give birth to the Fish God (Christ) who introduces the water of life into the ocean of substance and thus brings light to the world. Thus does
Neptune work’.” (EA 219)

15.   Neptune Upon the Cardinal Cross:
Neptune—6th Ray—Idealism—Devotion—Struggle.” (EA 248)

16.   Neptune as “God of the Waters”—the Meaning of “Waters”:
Neptune is as you know, the God of the waters, and the term ‘water’ covers many angles of the esoteric wisdom, such as:1. The whole concept of matter—universal and itemised; 2. The ‘waters of substance’; 3. The ocean of life; 4. The world of astral glamour and reaction; 5. The astral plane as a whole; 6. The desire and the emotional nature; 7. The world of focussed incarnation for the masses; 8. Mass existence, as in Cancer.” (EA 275)

17.   Neptune in Cancer Producing Momentum Towards Aquarius:
“It is the planet Neptune which is predominantly active in bringing about such an activity in Cancer that adequate momentum can be set up which will produce progress (through the intervening signs) to Aquarius.”
(EA 276)

18.   “... Neptune, the expression of the sixth Ray of Idealistic Devotion ...” (EA 282)

19.   The “Heart of the Sun” Employs Neptune as its Agent:
“As you have been told, the Sun veils certain hidden planets, and in the case of Leo, the two planets through which the Sun focusses its energy or influences (like a lens) are Neptune and Uranus. The ‘heart of the Sun’ employs
Neptune as its agent, whilst the central, spiritual Sun pours its influences through Uranus.” (EA 296)

20.   Neptune in Relation to the “Heart of the Sun” upon the Fixed Cross:
“Upon the Fixed Cross, it is the ‘heart of the Sun’ which is called into activity and which pours its energies through
Neptune upon man. These stimulate the heart, the throat and the ajna centres.” (EA 297)

21.   Neptune, 6th Ray, the Waters and the Moon:
Neptune Being the sign of the Deity of the waters, is related to the sixth ray which governs the astral or emotional plane of desire. When Neptune is thus active in the advanced Leo subject, then emotion‑desire have been transmuted into love‑aspiration and are dedicated to and oriented to the soul; the entire emotional or sensitive nature is responsive to energies coming from ‘the heart of the Sun,’ and when this is the case, it indicates that the disciple is now ready for the second initiation. This orientation is brought about by what is called ‘the sublimation of the influence of the Moon’ which is ... the mother, symbolically speaking, of the form nature and reflects the Sun, or the Father aspect.”
(EA 297-298)

22.   Neptune in a Triangle with the Sun and Moon:
“Esoterically speaking, you have the emergence of an interesting triangle of force which affects the Leo subject—the Sun, the Moon and Neptune; these are an expression of Rays 2.4.6 and, where these three are dominantly active, you have the establishing of that ‘inner alignment and attitude which forces open the Door into the Holy Place’.” (EA 298)

23.   Neptune has a Potent Effect upon the Astral Body:
“It will be apparent to you (given a little thought) that the Sun, as it veils Neptune, produces a potent effect upon the personality, symbolised for us here by the astral body, whilst Uranus (which is also veiled by the Sun) symbolises the effect of the soul upon the personality.”
(EA 300)

24.   Neptune Correlated to the Base of the Spine:
In the Triangle (Sun-Uranus-Neptune) the Sun Correlates with the Head Center, Uranus with the Heart Center, and Neptune with the Base of the Spine:
(cf. EA 301)

25.   Neptune in Relation to Mystical Consciousness:
Neptune—Mystical consciousness or that innate sensitivity which leads unerringly to the higher vision, to the recognition of the inter-relation involved in man’s essential duality during the process of manifestation, plus the activity of the mediator.”
(EA 306-307)

26.   [Neptune]—“... mystical perception...” (EA 307)

27.   Neptune—the Developed Mystic, Responsive to the Heart of the Sun:
“Before individual man can achieve initiation, he must be fully self-conscious, mystically oriented and occultly developed. He must be aware of himself as he essentially is—a soul involved in form which is itself developed and unfolded through soul activity; he must be a developed mystic, capable of pure vision, motivated by spiritual intent and able to perceive the uses of inherent sensitivity; he must also be a trained occultist, mentally polarised and profoundly aware of the realities, forces and energies of existence and, therefore, free from the ordinary glamours and illusions which colour the reactions and life of the average man. He is then governed by the physical Sun, motivated by the energies pouring from ‘the heart of the Sun’ (via Neptune) and bringing about at-one-ment through the forces which are reaching him (via Uranus).” (EA 307-308)

28.    Neptune Part of a Transmission from Leo and Aquarius:
“Beyond these two distant planets, lies another planet as yet undiscovered, though speculation is rife about it, owing to certain unexplained movements of the planet Neptune. It is through this planet that the Forces (as they are related to Leo and Aquarius) are focussed in one potent stream of force; these pour into our planetary life during the month of August, and distribute themselves, via Uranus and Neptune. You have, therefore, in this connection: 1) LEO AND AQUARIUS; 2) The physical Sun-Heart of the Sun-Central spiritual Sun; 3) The undiscovered planet; 4) Uranus and Neptune; 5) The human Hierarchy; 6) The animal Kingdom.” (EA 308)

29.   Neptune in Relation to Idealism and Devotion:
Neptune—6th ray—idealistic one‑pointedness. Devotion to an objective. (EA 308)

30.   Neptune—Manifesting the Ideal:
“In the perfected Leo, the loving self-conscious soul (2nd ray) carries its power of expression straight through from its own plane to the plane of exterior manifestation, but preserves at the same time its interior control (Uranus) and from that point of achievement, proceeds to make its ideal objective (Neptune) a fact in consciousness, through sensitivity to the higher vibration and directed intelligent service of the Plan. Ponder on this summation.” (EA 309)

31.   Neptune as Desire-Sensitivity in the Atlantean State of Consciousness:
“There is one point which I would like to make clear and that is that in the two rulers of this sign—the Moon and Neptune— you have the symbols of a close relationship between the Mother of all Forms and the God of the Waters, that is between the two planets. In this esoteric marriage, you have pictured for humanity a major synthesis of form and of desire-sensitivity and, consequently, a true statement of the stage of consciousness which we call Atlantean.” (EA 321)

32.   Neptune Relating Uniting Three Phrases of Consciousness:
“The Moon, however, relates Cancer to two other signs and these form a cosmic triangle. They are Cancer-Virgo-Aquarius. In this combination, you have the sign of mass-consciousness, the sign of the Christ-consciousness and the sign of universal consciousness very closely related to each other and all of them through the medium of the influence of Neptune, which the Moon veils.” (EA 321)

33.   The Feeling-Sensitive Nature of Neptune Dominates the Average Man:
“Like Leo, which is ruled in all its three expressions (orthodox, esoteric and hierarchical) by the Sun, Cancer is the only other sign which is ruled by only one planet, though in orthodox astrology, the Moon is substituted for Neptune because it is the form nature which is dominant in the longest stage of human unfoldment, just as esoterically, it is the feeling-sensitive nature which dominates the average man; it is with this stable tendency that the disciple has to wrestle.” (EA 321-322)

34.   The Fortunate Veiling of Neptune in Relation to the Mass Mind:
“In the mass mind (of which Cancer is the truest expression), it is fortunate that Neptune is veiled by the Moon and that the form fails to register or step down many of the impacts to which the true man is sensitive. Average humanity is not yet fully equipped to bear the full range of these impacts, to handle them constructively or to transmute them and interpret them accurately.” (EA 322)

35.   Neptune in Relation to the “Extreme Sensitivity” of the Disciple:
“Upon the Path of Discipleship and along the line of esoteric development, one of the major difficulties and great problems of the disciple is his extreme sensitivity to impacts from every side and his rapid ability to respond to contacts coming from ‘all points of the compass, from every angle of the zodiacal wheel and from that which is within as well as from that which is without, from that which lies above, below, and upon every hand’, as the Old Commentary expresses it.” (EA 322)

36.   Neptune in Relation to Two Poles of Consciousness:  
“It is also as difficult and hard for the average student of modern times to grasp the mass‑consciousness of Cancer as it is for him to grasps the group‑awareness or the universal consciousness of Aquarius and to this final development, humanity is hierarchically related by the Moon, veiling Neptune.” (EA 322)

37.   Neptunian Life Transcended by the Initiate:
“The unveiled
Neptune relates Cancer to no other constellation or sign, and this fact is of very great importance, because it indicates the fact that when a man is an initiate, he does not react to ordinary feeling, sentiment or to personality relations as they express themselves in pleasure or pain. All these are surmounted and eventually the watery life of emotional reaction is superseded by the life of true and of inclusive love. Soul control esoterically "obliterates" the Moon and all traces of Neptunian life. The initiate is no longer ruled by the Mother of Forms or by the God of the Waters. When the ‘waters break and are carried away’, the Mother gives birth to the Son and that individual spiritual entity then stands free. I would ask you to ponder upon this point.” (EA 322-323)

38.  Neptune Leads to the Unfoldment of the Emotional-Astral Body:
“These two—the Moon and Neptune—are, therefore, the direct influences which are brought to bear upon the Cancer subject and thus lead to the unfoldment of the form of life and of the emotional-astral body. The supreme usefulness of these aspects will be grasped if you will intelligently realise that without the form and without the ability to bear in mind the need to respond sensitively to the environing conditions and circumstance, the soul would never awaken to knowledge in the three worlds and, therefore, would never know God in manifestation.” (EA 323)

39.  The Involvement of  Neptune in the True Cancer-Capricorn Relationship:
“It will now be clear to you why the Moon and Neptune, transmitting the energies of the psychic nature and of form, plus the tendency to achieve through the medium of conflict, rule Cancer so potently, both directly and indirectly. They control the form and the lower psychic nature and produce the battle ground (later to be transmuted into the burning ground) whereon these two ‘face in the final conflict’ their higher correspondence, the soul and spirit, for matter is spirit at its lowest point and spirit is matter at its highest. In these words you have the true clue to the Cancer-Capricorn relationship.” (EA 340)

40.   [Neptune is related to] “… the development of psychic sensitivity, in both the higher and lower senses.” (EA 341)

41.   Neptune Rules the Solar Plexus Center for Disciples and Initiates:
“Solar plexus Centre—sixth ray—Neptune(EA 517)

42.   Neptune Does not Belong to our System:
Neptune does not really belong to our system, in spite of its apparent connection with the Sun. The connection is imaginary.” (SD I 129, note; EA 666)

43.    Neptune not Included Among the Star Angels:
“Among the secret orbs or star Angels ...
Neptune was not included.” (SD I 629)

44.   Neptune is the God of reasoning.” (SD II 840; EA 666)

45.    Neptune Promotes the Coordination of the Buddhic Vehicle:
“No man begins to coordinate the buddhic vehicle until he comes under the influence of
Neptune...When this happens, his personality horoscope will show this influence as dominant.” (EA 666)

46.   Neptunepresides over and makes possible the 2nd initiation.” (EA 666)

47.   Neptune—is one of the major synthesizing planets.” (EA 666)

48.   Neptuneis an absorbing or abstracting planet.” (EA 667)

49.   Neptune—is connected with the perfecting process” (EA 667)

50.    Neptune is the repository of the ‘solar flames’.” (EA 667)

51.   On Neptune (with Uranus and Saturn), the Method of Initiation not Employed:
“In the three great planetary schemes, Neptune, Uranus, and Saturn, the method of initiation will not be employed.  They will be the recipients of those who are esoterically ‘saved’ from among the other schemes.” (IHS 96)

52.   Neptune not Numbered Among the Sacred Planets (on this tabulation):
Neptune and Uranus are not here enumerated, nor Vulcan. The orbit of Neptune includes apparently the entire ring-pass-not. Vulcan is within the orbit of Mercury.” (TCF 206, Note)

53.   Neptune is the Second of the Synthesizing Planets: (cf. TCF 369)

54.   Neptune Involved in the Transmission from Sirius:
“Our solar system is negatively polarised as regards the sun Sirius, which influences our entire system psychically via the three synthesising schemes—Uranus, Neptune, Saturn—the latter, Saturn, being the focal point for the transmission of cosmic manas to the entire seven schemes.”
(TCF 378)

55.   The “Neptune Chain” is Listed as the First Chain in the Earth Scheme: (cf. TCF 389)

56.   Venus will Merge in Neptune—its Synthesizing Scheme:
“The four schemes which form the logoic Quaternary will merge into their synthesising scheme, that of Saturn, while Venus and Mercury will merge into Uranus and Neptune.  No importance need be attached to the sequence of these names.  The dual fact is all that is necessary to grasp.” (TCF 405-406)

57.   Neptune is the Correspondence to the Astral Permanent Atom of the Logos:
Neptune, Uranus, and Saturn will, therefore, have absorbed the essence of manifestation and (in connection with the solar Logos) they correspond to the three permanent atoms in the causal body of a man.  We say ‘correspond’ for the analogy is not in detail.  Uranus and Neptune are reflections of the logoic astral and mental permanent atoms. Saturn is in fact the correspondence to the logoic physical permanent atom.  This is an occult mystery and must not be separated from its allied truth in the cosmic scheme.” (TCF 406)

58.   The Neptune Chain was Unmanifested when the Moon Chain Existed:
“The enumeration of the chains and of the schemes as given in the two charts is entirely for the present, and covers a period comparatively recent, carrying forward the history of evolution to the middle of the next round in our chain.  Had we been given the charts embracing pre-Lemurian days, and extending back a distance into the (humanly speaking) unfathomable past, we would have seen the moon chain portrayed with the Neptune chain omitted.  In the chart as given two chains are apparently lacking, the moon chain and the Uranus chain.” (TCF 414)

59.   The Neptune Chain Emerged and the Moon Chain Began to Disappear:
“The moon chain is in process of disappearance, and only a decaying body is left; the life of the second and the first Logos has been withdrawn from it, and only the latent life of matter itself remains.  Simultaneously Neptune arose over the horizon, and took its place as one of the seven manifesting chains of the planetary Logos.  We are here dealing with the Neptune chain of the earth scheme.” (TCF 415)

60.   Certain Beings, Who have their Habitat on Neptune, are Dispensers of Love-Wisdom:
“A peculiar group of Beings connected with a certain constellation and the lesser Dragon, who have their habitat on
Neptune and work with the sixth principle in the solar system.  They take physical form, animated by purified desire, controlled by mind, and are the dispensers of love-wisdom by means of certain of the "Halls of Wisdom" on the various planets.  The words ‘Halls of Wisdom’ in their esoteric significance describe a stage of consciousness not a location.” (TCF 534)

61.   Neptune as the “Synthesis of Life” (when Considered in Relation to the Law of Sacrifice and Death): “In a mysterious way this law is the reverse side of the first, or the Law of Vibration.  It is Vulcan and Neptune in opposition, which is as yet an almost incomprehensible thing for us.  The densest form of expression on the physical plane is after all but a form of synthesis; just as the rarest form of expression on the highest plane is but unity or synthesis of a finer kind.  One is the synthesis of matter, and the other the synthesis of life.” (TCF 597)

62.   Agnishvattas on Neptune (Saturn and Uranus) Work Differently than those on Other Planets: “More of their work it is not possible to detail, for the work of the Agnishvattas is vast and intricate, and differs also in the various schemes in certain particulars.  Those who are working in the Uranus, the Neptune, and the Saturn scheme work somewhat differently to those functioning in the Venus, the Vulcan, the Mars, the Mercury, the Jupiter, the Earth and the exoteric Saturn scheme, and so do the Manasadevas of the inner round.” (TCF 777)

63.   Neptune (with Saturn and Uranus) are not yet Fully Stimulated:
“The three major planetary schemes (Uranus, Neptune, and Saturn) have not, as yet, received their fullest stimulation, and will not do so until the ‘energy of the sacred seven’ has been transferred to Them.  Figures, therefore, as regards their duration and persistence are not in order.” (TCF 793)

64.   Undiscovered Planets in the Orbit of Neptune:
“Not all of the Intra-Mercurial planets, nor yet those in the orbit of Neptune, are yet discovered, although they are strongly suspected.  We know that such exist and where they exist; and that there are innumerable planets ‘burnt out’ they say,—in Obscuration we say;—planets in formation and not yet luminous, etc. …” (TCF 837, Note)

65.   Varuna—an Emanation from Neptune:
“One of the most occult of the planets, Neptune, presides over the ‘devas of the waters’; their presiding deva Lord, Varuna, the Raja of the astral plane, being an emanation from that planet.” (TCF 897)

66.   Knowledge of Neptune and Varuna Helps Man Understand his Astral Body:
“The name
Neptune is one under which the planetary Logos of one of the major three schemes is known upon our planet.  Certain of His influences and energies affect paramountly the deva essence of this sixth subplane matter, reaching them via the Raja Lord Varuna.  This knowledge is of practical value astrologically, for it will enable men to understand the nature of their own physical bodies, and above all of their astral bodies. It is an occult fact that the type of astral matter in a man's body decides the quality of the watery substance of his physical body.  There is, in occultism, no dissociating the physico-psychic natures, for the latter determines the former.” (TCF  897)

67.   Neptune, and Correspondences with the Sixth, or Astral, Plane:
“The planet Neptune therefore has a profound effect and a close connection under the Law of Correspondences with the sixth, or astral plane, which is the plane of the liquid portion of the logoic physical body, with the sixth subplane of the physical plane, or with the liquid portion of the human physical body and of the planetary physical body, also with the sixth type of energy or force, or the sixth ray.”
(TCF 897)

68.   Neptune in an Important Triangle with the Sixth Scheme (Jupiter?) and One Other (Venus?): “The major scheme over which Neptune presides forms a systemic triangle of great interest for esoteric astrologers with the sixth scheme and one other.  This is symbolised in the three pronged trident which the god Neptune is always portrayed as holding, the prongs being literally the symbolic triangles connected with each other by three lines of force.” (TCF 898-899)

69.   Neptune Related to Buddhi:
“This planet has also a vital relation to the sixth logoic principle, or Buddhi, and therefore the sixth principle of man.  No man begins to co-ordinate the buddhic vehicles until he comes under Neptunian influence in some life or another.  When this is the case, his personality horoscope will show Neptunian influence dominating somewhere.” (TCF 899)

70.   The Neptunian Scheme Governs One of the Three Paths of Return:
“The Neptunian scheme governs one of the three paths of return, and gathers to itself eventually all those Egos who attain primarily through the manipulation of the sixth type of energy usually called devotion.  It is Neptunian influence likewise which presides over and makes possible the second Initiation, wherein the initiate produces results in the astral body, and wherein his astral centres are the object of the Hierophant's attention.” (TCF 899)

71.   Neptunian Energy Flows through the Following Centers:
“This particular type of energy flows through three centres: a. That particular head centre which is linked to the heart centre; b. The heart centre; c. The solar plexus.”
(TCF 899)

72.   Neptune is not the Planetary Logos of the Sixth Ray:
“The planet Neptune, along with the planetary Logos of the sixth ray controls the astral centres in man.  This statement involves much esoteric macrocosmic significance.  When it is remembered that all centres—human and divine—are composed of deva essence, the connection between this influence and the devas, and their reflex effect upon man, will immediately become apparent.” (TCF 899)

73.   Neptune is Related to the Mystery of the Sea and its Absorption:
“In the mystery of the sea and the secret of its occult ‘drying up’ or absorption, will be revealed eventually the significance underlying: a. The sex impulse, macrocosmically and microcosmically interpreted; b. The cessation of desire; c. The direction of fire to the throat centre instead of to the generative organs; d. Pralaya and obscuration; e. The meaning of the words "There shall be no more sea" found in the Christian Bible.” (TCF 899-900)

74.   Neptune—a Major Synthesizing Planet Related to Absorption and Abstraction:
“When meditating upon these thoughts, students will find it well to bear in mind the fact that Neptune is one of the major or synthesising planets, that it is an ‘absorbing’ or ‘abstracting’ planet, and that it is connected with the process whereby eventual perfection is demonstrated.  The Son is made perfect, and the cosmic incarnation is brought to a close.” (TCF 900)

75.   Neptune in Relation to our Planetary Logos and the Informing Life of the Second Kingdom:Neptune, the God of the Waters, has a curious relationship to our planetary Logos, and also to the Entity Who is the informing life of the second kingdom.” (EA 1072)

76.   Elemental Group Soul Correspondences Involving Neptune:
“Elemental group ... vegetable kingdom ... Rajasic ... Planetary Logoi ... Neptune.  Son aspect” (TCF 1138)

77.   Neptune in Relation to the Solar Flames:
“The Saturn scheme is esoterically regarded as having absorbed the ‘frictional fires of systemic space’; Neptune is looked upon as the repository of the ‘solar flames’, and Uranus as the home of ‘fire electric’.” (TCF 1154)

78.   Neptune—One of the Absorbing Triangles:
“The absorbing Triangles.  This term is applied to the evolutionary schools found located in the three major planets of our system—Uranus, Neptune and Saturn—and to those found in the three major chains, and three major globes in a planetary scheme.  The Rulers of these planets, chains and globes are called the ‘Divine Examiners’, and Their work concerns the human kingdom specifically and entirely.” (TCF 1176-1177)

79.   The Planetary School on Neptune:
Neptune—This school concerns itself with the development and fostering of the desire element and its graduates are called "the Sons of Vishnu."  Their symbol is a robe with a full sailed boat portrayed over the heart, the significance of which will be apparent to those who have eyes to see.” (TCF 1179)

80.   Neptune (with Uranus) Associated with the Kingdom of Souls:
“The kingdom of souls—Neptune and Uranus.” (EP I 245)

81.   Neptune and the Training for the Second Initiation:
“…the training for the second initiation brings him under Neptunian influences with Venus and Jupiter contending for control.  The link with the vegetable kingdom is then strong, and hence the frequent recognition of "astral perfumes" which the disciple can note.” (EP I 246)

82.   Neptune in Relation to the Blood Stream:
The blood stream is governed by Neptune.” (EH 143)
