Venus, Jupiter and Saturn might be considered as the vehicles of the three super-principles at this time. Mercury, the Earth and Mars are closely allied to these three, but a hidden mystery lies here. These three planets - in connection with this inner round - are considered only as existing in etheric matter, and hold a place analogous to the etheric triangle found in the human etheric body. Just as the human etheric triangle is but the preparatory stage to a vast circulation within the sphere of the entire etheric body, so the etheric planetary triangle - passing from the Earth to Mars and Mercury - is but the preparatory circulatory system to a vaster round included within the sphere of influence of one planetary Lord.
The second hint We seek to give, lies in the triangle formed by the Earth, Mars and Mercury. In connection with this triangle, the analogy lies in the fact that Mercury and the centre at the base of the spine in the human being are closely allied. Mercury demonstrates kundalini in intelligent activity, while Mars demonstrates kundalini latent. The truth lies hid in their two astrological symbols. In transmutation and planetary geometrising, the secret may be revealed.
Neptune, Uranus and Saturn correspond (in connection with the solar Logos) to the three permanent atoms in the causal body of a man. 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.
Venus corresponds to the heart centre in the body logoic, and has an inter-relationship therefore with all the other centres in the solar system wherein the heart aspect is the one of greater prominence. In an occult sense, Venus is to the Earth what the higher Self is to man. As the antahkarana is built by individual man between the mental unit and the manasic permanent atom so - in a planetary sense - is a channel being built by collective man on this planet to its primary, Venus.

Some planets related to the centres

- Saturn corresponds to the throat centre, or to the creative activity of the third aspect.

- Mercury is the star of the intuition, or of transmuted manas. Mercury heals the blind and restores sight,
  mental and physical.

- The moon is dead and cannot support life because humanity and the building devas have been removed
  from its sphere of influence.

- Pluto is a deity with the attributes of the serpent. He is a healer, a giver of health, spiritual and physical and
  of enlightenment.

- Neptune’s influences and energies affect paramountly the deva essence of this sixth subplane matter,
  reaching them via the Raja Lord Varuna.

This knowledge will enable men to understand the nature of their own physical bodies. It is an occult fact that for instance 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. 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.

The manipulating devas of the fourth cosmic ether will, in due course of evolution, work out the plan in objective perfection through the medium of the living substance of the lesser devas of the liquid or astral plane. When they have done this two results will be seen:  first, the astral plane will perfectly reflect the buddhic plane and, secondly, the result of that will be that the physical plane will produce the exact vehicle needed for microcosmic or macrocosmic expression through the force of water, or desire.

The Four Systems of Man

The blood stream is the carrier of the life principle and of the combined energies and forces of the three above systems. The relationship of the circulatory system of the blood to the nervous system has only been recently and adequately developed in modern medicine universities. Much already has been done to relate the glandular system to the blood.
Only when the four interrelated systems (see below) are viewed as one integrated whole and as the four aspects of one vital circulatory system will the truth emerge. Only as they are acknowledged to be the four major distributing agents of the combined rays of the individual man will the true nature of material phenomena be grasped. It might be added here that:
1. The etheric vehicle from the circulatory angle, is governed by the Moon, as it veils Vulcan.
2. The nervous system is ruled by Venus.
3. The endocrine system is governed by Saturn.
4. The blood stream is governed by Neptune.
These four systems are in reality the manifestation of the four aspects of matter in its lowest or purely physical expression. There are other aspects of expression of the fundamental substance, but these are the four of greatest importance. Their interplay, relationship and unified function are an expression of the One Life Principle, and when they have reached a point of perfected fusion or synthesis or coordinated activity there then appears that "life more abundantly" of which the Coming One spoke and of which we, as yet, know nothing. The four aspects of matter produce the correspondence also to the four divine attributes as well as to the three divine aspects.
The door into the experience into the human kingdom is through the "Gate of Cancer." Initiation into the kingdom of God is entered through the "Gate of Capricorn." The four attributes and the three aspects of matter, plus their dual activity, are the correspondence to the four aspects of the personality (mental, astral, physical, etheric vehicles) and the Spiritual Triad and their dual active relationship. In this statement is hidden the key to liberation.
Head, Ajna and Throat Centres

The throat centre (involving the carotid gland) is ruled by Saturn just as the two head centres are ruled respectively by Uranus (ruling the head centre) and Mercury (ruling the ajna centre). This is only where the disciple is concerned; the rulership changes after the third initiation or before the first.  These three planets constitute a most interesting triangle of forces and in the following triplicities and their inevitable inter-relations you have - again only in the case of disciples - a most amazing picture story or symbol of the ninefold of initiation:

            1. The head centre
                The ajna centre
                The throat centre
            2. The third eye
                The right eye
                The left eye
            3. The pineal gland
                The pituitary body
                The carotid gland
thus presenting the mechanism through which the Spiritual Triad, the soul and the personality work. The key to a right understanding of process lies in the relation of the three planets:  Uranus, Mercury and Saturn, as they pour their energies through these nine "points of spiritual contact" upon the physical plane into the "grounded sphere of light and power which is the man in time and space."
Heart Centre

The Heart Centre is the centre, which is receiving the most attention from Those Who are responsible for the unfoldment of the human consciousness. The rapid unfoldment of this heartlotus is one of the reasons which became a necessary way so that all the old forms of government, of religion and of the crystallised social order disappeared or still are disappearing. Humanity has now reached a point of group awareness and of group interplay of a deeply spiritual kind, and new forms are required through which this new spirit can function more adequately.
The heart centre corresponds to the "heart of the Sun," and therefore to the spiritual source of light and love-wisdom.
It is brought into functioning activity after the second initiation. That initiation marks the completion of the process whereby the emotional nature (with its outstanding quality of desire) is brought under soul control, and the desire of the personal lower self has been transmuted into love. It is the organ for the distribution of hierarchical energy, poured out via the soul into the heart centre of all aspirants, disciples and initiates; in this way this energy is made available and brings about two results:

1. One result of this is the regeneration of humanity through love-wisdom.
2. A second result is the relationship, firmly established, between a rapidly developing humanity and the

 In this way two great planetary centres - the Hierarchy and Humanity - are brought into a close contact
    and relationship.
