In this article, we are going to discuss more of a detail when it comes to esoteric astrology, but before we dive in, there are a few things to discuss, unrelated to all of that. First, I am going to make a correction. The planet discovered in 2003, UB 313, ended up being named Sedna. I made the mistake because there has been so much turmoil in the astronomical community since then I lost track of the changes, so I apologize.
Secondly, this is an adjunct to your esoteric astrological studies, if you want a different perspective on things. While the twelve tribes of Israel correspond to the twelve signs of the zodiac, one could also make the case that the twelve labors of Hercules correspond to them as well. This is not a new idea though, and as early as the beginning of the 20th century this was being discussed in Theosophical writings, particularly those of Alice A Bailey. In her book “The Twelve Labors of Hercules,” she discusses exactly this and goes into great depth and detail, so I encourage you to check this classic material out! It is worth the read.
Let’s turn our attention to the focus of this article now, as we discuss triangles in esoteric astrology. This may seem a bit odd, so let’s start off with a geometric and scientific fact. The strongest shape in creation is the triangle. All of the weight is equally balanced, and there are only three points to be concerned with instead of four from the cube. This geometric principle goes back to the time of the ancient Greeks, and while most modern architecture doesn’t work with this as much anymore because of the idea of a cube, and four points (how many triangular houses do you see, really?), but it is still true none the less. This foundational principle is carried through in esoteric astrology and manifests as triangles. Specifically, the triangulation of energy. The triangulation of energy is the main use of this material in esoteric astrology, but also remember that when you’re trying to trace a radio signal, you use a triangulation approach, so not only does this material work on the geometric principle I mentioned above, it also works to discover the hidden point, or origin point, of the transmission of energy. That last point is a detail and an advanced topic in esoteric astrology, but it is worth being aware of regardless.
In the book Esoteric Astrology by Alice Bailey, triangles are discussed quite a bit, and the emphasis there is on the fact that you can see three points and how the energy flows between them. This is more than a trine aspect in regular astrology though because a lot of the triangles in esoteric astrology are not just between planets and/or signs, they also include fixed stars such as Sirius, or other cosmic locations, such as the Big Dipper, etc. Whenever you see triangles discussed in esoteric astrology, what you are seeing being covered is how energy is exchanged between those points. One of the more fun things I’ve done is to take this material and see if I have triangles present in my chart. If I did notice them, I would then work with the energy and channel beings from those points in the triangle. This led to much cosmic gnosis and wisdom. You can also use triangles to manipulate energy, and this is something that can be particularly powerful for the energetic healers out there. I used to use a related technique from the Alice Bailey material quite a bit when directing energy through my aura, and I can tell you it is an intense practice, but it can elevate you to amazing heights of consciousness and extra-planar work.
However, there is an issue with using them, though, and that is that there is no finite number of them that are given out in the text by Bailey. Yes, there are a lot listed, but there are many more than that because they are not revealed in any balanced way. The other problem with them, and this isn’t too big of one, is that the principles underpinning them are not revealed, so you can’t just figure them out for yourself. I’m used to this though because that is true of a lot of books on the occult, but usually, you can read between the lines and figure it out. However, as much as I’ve been trying over the last fifteen years or so, I still haven’t been able to figure it out. On one hand, this means I’ll gladly listen to thoughts on this if you come across something I haven’t, but on the other, it is hard to treat it as legitimate material without knowing the ‘why’s.’
While this is a point of annoyance to me, it does not take away from the value of this concept. But because of this though, I generally don’t do a lot with this particular feature in Esoteric Astrology, but as I’ve gotten more experienced I have begun to talk about it more because it is a key part of the system. The gold of this is that it points to something not really talked about, how you can use the triangulation of energy not only in your astrological studies but also in your energetic movement systems. Therefore, I encourage you to look into this and see what gems you develop. And of course, let me know if you can fill in any of the gaps I have in my knowledge!
