THE MESSAGE
OF THE
STARS

"The term ESOTERIC ASTROLOGY is derived from the idea that behind the outer form of ordinary astrology (exoteric astrology) there is an esoteric form which proceeds from an entirely spiritual realm of being. It has long been recognised by the more thoughtful astrologers and historians of astrology that much of the philosophy underlying their science properly belongs to the ancient wisdom once taught in the Mystery Centres of Egypt and Greece, which has now become not only exoteric, but even badly mutilated in the process. It is equally apparent that the stream of esoteric knowledge is still available to those who are prepared to make the considerable effort required to reach into the spiritual realms from which it proceeds. Many astrologers have indeed made this effort, through the guidelines set out in the Neoplatonic, Rosicrucian and Qabbalistic forms of astrology, with the result that it has been possible for them to formulate some of the ancient laws of esoteric astrology". - F.Gettings

ROSICRUCIAN FUNDAMENTALS

 

The Rosicrucian Order is an ancient Mystic Fraternity formed in the year 1313 by a high spiritual teacher having the symbolical name "Christian Rosenkreuz": Christian Rose Cross. It was his mission to prepare a new phase of the Christian religion to be used during the coming age now at hand, for as the world and man evolve so also must religion change. The system of worship suited to the spiritual needs of our forebears is unsuited to our altered intellectual condition. Therefore, the great spiritual entities in charge of evolution, change the religions of the world in harmony with the passage of the marching orbs in the heavens.

WHO ARE THE ROSICRUCIANS ?   by   Alexandre David

Who are the Rosicrucians? Were they an organization of profound thinkers rebelling against the inquisitional religious and philosophical limitations of their time or were they isolated transcendentalist united only by the similarity of their viewpoints and deductions? Where was the "House of the Holy Spirit, "in which , according to their manifestoes, they met once a year to plan the future activities of their Order? Who was the mysterious person referred to as "our Illustrious Father and Brother C.R.C."? Did those three letters actually stand for the words "Christian Rosie Cross"? Was Christian Rosenkreutz, the supposed author of the Chymical Nuptials, the same person who with three others founded "The Society of the Rose Cross"?              

THE  AQUARIAN  AGE   by  Elsa M. Glover, PhD

  The Aquarian Age is dawning, and its influence will gradually free men from the bondages of mind and spirit which they have suffered for thousands of years. Elsa M. Glover's The Aquarian Age foretells of these sweeping changes to come, offering hope and assurance that the freed mind and spirit will soar to yet undreamed-of heights. Dr. Glover explains how, during the Piscean Age, man's ignorance of his potential kept him from developing his creative abilities, man's lack of self-esteem kept him dependent on others for approval, and man's fear of the unknown kept him from wanting to explore new ideas or even associate with anyone who might have a different perspective on life than his own. Dr. Glover shows how the Aquarian Age will, however, help people to break out of the shell of ignorance, lack of self-esteem, and fear so that they can become, for the first time in history, truly free. As people become free to explore their own inner natures, the world around them, and other peoples, unprecedented advances will be made in self-actualization, scientific understanding and invention, and universal love.

THE MYSTIC AND THE OCCULT IN MAX HEINDEL'S WRITINGS  by  Charles Weber

  . 

   . Two words regularly crop up in Max Heindel’s writings. They are at once complements and opposites of each other. Occult occurs far more often than mystic, and for good reason. Rosicrucian Teachings are principally occult and not mystic. Moreover, the Rosicrucian Fellowship was founded for the purpose of promulgating occult knowledge, as contained most completely in the Rosicrucian Cosmo-Conception. The student may have experienced some confusion with the use of these two terms in Heindel’s oeuvre. By exploring that use in context we hope to bring clarity both to their intended meaning and to key concepts in the Rosicrucian Philosophy.

CHRONOLOGY ABOUT MAX HEINDEL  by  Ger Westenberg

NEW BIRTH THROUGH REGENERATION   by  Corinne Heline

  . All of these Mystery Orders are" formed on cosmic lines"; thus the thirteen Initiations correspond to the twelve constellations and their spiritual head of the zodiac; also their planetary rulers, some of which remain to be discovered. It is interesting to speculate that in the Greek Zodiac the Pleiades were considered to be a thirteenth consttellation until a late date. The great Christian type of the Mystery School is that of the Christ ,with His twelve Apostles. The Rosicrucian Order is also compos:ted of twelve Brothers and an esoteric thirteenth, the revered Founder, symbolically designated Christian Rose Cross after the work he came to do for the world.

This is the first Part of Chapter XII from Corinne Heline's book "OCCULT ANATOMY AND THE BIBLE" published by New Age Bible & Philosophy Center, 1139 Lincoln Boulevard , Santa Monica, CA, 90403. Her complete works are available through this Esoteric Center.

 

ELLA WHEELER WILCOX AND MAX HEINDEL   by  Audrey Glover

 

Many Rosicrucian students will remember Ella Wheeler Wilcox as the poet of whom Max Heindel wrote in The Rosicrucian Cosmo-Conception, "Ella Wheeler Wilcox, with the true compassion of all far advanced souls, champions this occult maxim ( There is One Life - the Life of God ) in the following beautiful words," and them quotes her poem, "The Voice of the Voiceless." But probably few  know that she met Max Heindel and conversed with him, as she relates in her autobiography, "The Worlds and I", published shortly before her death in 1919.

THE ASTRONOMICAL ALLEGORIES OF THE BIBLE by Max Heindel

  The contest of Light and Darkness in the physical world is closely connected in the scriptures of the different religions with the contest of the powers of spiritual light and life against those of darkness and ignorance; that this truth is universally spread among all peoples in all ages. The myths of the dragon-slayers embody the same truth, where the Greeks tell of the victory of Apollo over Python, and of Hercules over the dragon of the Hesperides, the norseman tells of the contest of Beowulf slaying the fire-drake, of Siegfried slaying the dragon Fafner, and of St. George and the dragon.

Hermes over Typhon, JAKnaap.

In our materialistic age these truths are temporarily relegated to oblivion or regarded as fairy stories without any basis in truth; but the time will come and is not far distant when these relics will again be restored to honor as embodiments of great spiritual truths.

 

THE  PROTECTIVE  AURA

Rosicrucian Teachers instruct their pupils in regard to creating and maintaining the "Protective Aura", which is a shelter of soul, mind, and body against evil influences directed toward them consciously or unconsciously.

THE ORDO ROSACRUZ AND THE ROSICRUCIAN FELLOWSHIP

In the years 1907-08, after being tested for sincerity of purpose and selfless desire to aid his fellowmen, Max Heindel was selected by the Brothers of the Rose Cross to give out publicly the Western Wisdom Teachings and thus help prepare humanity for the coming Age of Universal Brotherhood. By means of intense self-discipline and devotion to service he earned the status of Lay Brother (Initiate) in the exalted Rosicrucian Order.

    Under the direction of the Brothers of the Rose Cross, spiritual giants of the human race, Max Heindel wrote The Rosicrucian Cosmo-Conception, an epoch-making book which has now become the Western World's leading textbook on occultism. By means of his own spiritual development he was able to verify for himself much that was given in the Cosmo-Conception, as well as to gain additional knowledge that later become embodied in his numerous books.

QUESTIONS   CONCERNING   THE   BIBLE  TEACHINGS

 WHY IS IT THAT EVERY SECT INTERPRETS THE BIBLE DIFFERENTLY AND THAT EACH ONE GETS AN APPARENT VINDICATION FOR ITS IDEAS FROM THAT BOOK?

DO THE ROSICRUCIANS ACCEPT THE BIBLE AS THE "WORD OF GOD" FROM COVER TO COVER?

WHAT IS THE VIEWPOINT OF THE ROSICRUCIANS CONCERNING THE CREATION OF THE WORLD IN SEVEN DAYS?

IS THERE AN OCCULT SIGNIFICANCE IN THE VARIOUS CHRISTIAN FEASTS OF THE YEAR?

IS THERE ANY AUTHORITY IN THE BIBLE FOR THE THEORY OF REBIRTH?

MY LITTLE TRIBUTE TO OUR BELOVED MAX HEINDEL  by Corinne Heline

 For five wonderful years I was privileged to know this wise man and to study and be trained under his guidance and supervision. I've always considered those five years as being the most beautiful and the most spiritually fruitful of my entire life.

 I wish I were able to describe this wonderful man to you in the way that I came to know him. When I think of his many admirable characteristics, perhaps the quality I loved most deeply about him was his exquisitely beautiful humility. While he was always eager to be of help and serve wherever possible, he was always firm in keeping the personality of Max Heindel in the background.

THE BIBLE : WONDER BOOK OF THE AGES  by  Corinne  Heline


Born to the aristocracy of the Old South into the prominent Duke family, she received a classical and religious education that was to prepare her for her life work. She was a life-long student of the ancient mysteries devoting her time to study and meditation. The Rosicrucian Adept , Max Heindel , became her teacher and associate at Mt. Ecclesia in Oceanside, California where she met another New Age pioneer, Theodore Heline who was to become her husband  and to undertake the publication of the inspired writings that flowed through her. Her monumental work, The New Age Bible Interpretation, in seven volumes was followed by many other works interpreting the ancient wisdom in termsof the needs of the day. She was truly a New Age Pioneer , opening the way to vast new fields of investigation for those who would  know and be a part of the coming world the Aquarian age. Her consciousness far transcended that of her day, and while she had physical plane teachers,  her inspiration  came from the immortals who overshadowed her, the greatest being our lovely lady, the Madonna who was the light of her life from early childhood.

THE TWELVE HOLY DAYS   by  Corinne Heline

 A belief commonly prevails that December 25th, celebrated as Christmas, brings to a close the spiritual festival of the mid- winter solstitial season. This is not true. It only marks the beginning or the entrance upon a period of deep significance. That period is the twelve-day interval between Christmas and Twelfth Night, days which embrace the spiritual heart of the year to follow. These twelve days have been very aptly termed the year's Holy of Holies.

This work is designed for serious students of the Christian Mysteries, to assist them in placing themselves in more complete attunement with the twelve zodiacal forces released upon the earth during this time.

Everyone of the twelve Holy Days is under the direct supervision of one of the twelve zodiacal Hierarchies, each one of which projects over the planet a cosmic pattern of the world as it will be when the combined work of the Hierarchies has been completed. Also, the twelve Disciples are correlated with these twelve Holy Days, as are the twelve spiritual centers through which the twelve forces operate in man's body-temple.

The Rosicrucian Fellowship

An International Association of Christian Mystics
dedicated to preaching the Gospel and healing the sick


The Rosicrucian Fellowship is composed of men and women who study the Rosicrucian Philosophy known as the Western Wisdom Teachings as presented in The Rosicrucian Cosmo-Conception. This Christian Mystic Philosophy presents deep insights into the Christian Mysteries and establishes a meeting ground for Art, Religion, and Science. Max Heindel was selected by the Elder Brothers of the Rose Cross to publicly give out the Western Wisdom Teachings in order to help prepare mankind for the coming age of Universal Brotherhood, the Age of Aquarius.

The work of the Rosicrucian Fellowship is to spread the gospel and heal the sick. This is achieved by making the Western Wisdom Teachings available to all who are willing to receive them, by providing a Healing Department which emphasizes spiritual healing along the principles of right living, and by making The Rosicrucian Fellowship books and home study courses available upon request.

These correspondence courses include: studies in Esoteric Christian Philosophy using the basic textbook, The Rosicrucian Cosmo-Conception; a Bible study course that helps to bring a better understanding of the satisfying truths contained in the Bible; and studies in Spiritual Astrology as a key to the Spirit, designed toward spiritual development and self-knowledge, as well as an aid to healing through Astro-Diagnosis.

One of the basic conditions on which the Western Wisdom Teachings were given to Max Heindel was that no price should be put on them. This condition was faithfully observed by Mr. Heindel and is still adhered to. Although the Rosicrucian Fellowship books are sold, the services of our Healing Department, the Correspondence Courses, and the various School activities continue to be offered on a free-will love-offering basis. The Rosicrucian Fellowship has no connection with any other organization. There are no membership dues or fees.
