I must admit, I felt a little uneasy reading through the material of Helena P. Blavatsky (HPB). From what I have read, Hitler and the Nazi’s depended heavily upon her teachings. There was a substantial Tibetan and Chinese community in Berlin thanks to the society’s occult interests and by 1941 there was more than one thousand Tibetans living in and around Berlin.

For some reason I got the impression she had an axe to grind with Christianity and held the Luciferians in a positive light. On that note, I suppose you could say I do not agree with all of her esoteric philosophy.

Despite all of that, however, I trudged through her work, and gathered some interesting passages from her book titled: ‘The Secret Doctrine’ 1888 that relate to Nibiru and the Dark Star.

The references are broken down into three headings:

1) Rosicrucians

2) Our Solar System’s Two Companions – Nibiru and the Dark Star

3) Nemesis, the Grand Cycle and the Zodiac

I’ve inserted [Brackets] and CAPITALS to emphasize my argument.


I the first thing that perked my interest, within her two-volume set, was how the ‘Rosicrucian’ name came about:

“At this stage of the re-awakening of the Universe, the sacred symbolism represents…. a perfect Circle with the (root) point in the Centre. This sign was universal, therefore we find it in the Kabala also. The Western Kabala, however, now in the hands of Christian mystics, ignores it altogether, though it is plainly shown in the Zohar.

"These sectarians begin at the end, and show as the SYMBOL OF PREGENETIC KOSMOS this sign, calling it "the Union of the Rose and Cross," the great mystery of occult generation, from whence the name - Rosicrucians (Rose Cross)!”

Vol.1; Page 19.

According to my research Rosicrucians and Theosophists have acquired and continue to search for ancient knowledge from manuscripts and books, some actually hidden within the bowels of the Earth.


HPB states possible locations as to where these ancient documents might be:

A. Wilder says that Gan-duniyas is a name of Babylonia. In the Chaldean ‘Book of Numbers’ the location is designated in numerals and in the cipher Rosicrucian manuscript, left by Count St. Germain, it is fully described.” Vol. 2; page 202 [So it would seem Count St. Germain was a key person involved with esoteric secret knowledge—GJ]

“It has been claimed in ALL AGES that ever since the destruction of the Alexandrian Library (see Isis Unveiled, Vol. II., p. 27), every work of a character that might have led the profane to the ultimate discovery and comprehension of some of the mysteries of the Secret Science, was, owing to the combined efforts of the members of the Brotherhoods, diligently searched for. It is added, moreover, by those who know, that once found, save three copies left and stored safely away, such works were all destroyed. In India, the last of the precious manuscripts were secured and hidden during the reign of the Emperor Akbar”.

“It is maintained, furthermore, that every sacred book of that kind, whose text was not sufficiently veiled in symbolism, or which had any direct references to the ancient mysteries, after having been carefully copied in cryptographic characters, such as to defy the art of the best and cleverest paleographer, was also destroyed to the last copy. During Akbar's reign, some fanatical courtiers, displeased at the Emperor's sinful prying into the religions of the infidels, themselves helped the Brahmans to conceal their MSS. Such was Badaoni, who had an undisguised horror for Akbar's mania for idolatrous religions.”

“Moreover in all the large and wealthy lamaseries, there are SUBTERRANEAN CRYPTS AND CAVE-LIBRARIES, cut in the rock, whenever the gonpa and the lhakhang are situated in the mountains. Beyond the Western Tsay-dam, in the solitary passes of Kuen-lun [Karakorum mountains, Western Tibet] THERE ARE SEVERAL SUCH HIDING PLACES. Along the ridge of Altyn-Toga, whose soil no European foot has ever trodden so far, there exists a certain hamlet, lost in a deep gorge. It is a small cluster of houses, a hamlet rather than a monastery, with a poor-looking temple in it, with one old lama, a hermit, living near by to watch it.

"Pilgrims say that the subterranean galleries and halls under it contain a collection of books, the number of which, according to the accounts given, is too large to find room even in the British Museum. [(According to the same tradition the now desolate regions of the waterless land of Tarim - a true wilderness in the heart of Turkestan - were in the days of old covered with flourishing and wealthy cities. At present, hardly a few verdant oases relieve its dead solitude. One such, sprung on the sepulchre of a vast city swallowed by and buried under the sandy soil of the desert, belongs to no one, but is often visited by Mongolians and Buddhists. The same tradition speaks of immense subterranean abodes, of large corridors filled with tiles and cylinders. It may be an idle rumor, and it may be an actual fact.)]”

"All this is very likely to provoke a smile of doubt. But then, before the reader rejects the truthfulness of the reports, let him pause and reflect over the following well known facts. The collective researches of the Orientalists, and especially the labors of late years of the students of comparative Philology and the Science of Religions have led them to ascertain as follows:

"An immense, incalculable number of MSS., and even printed works known to have existed, are now to be found no more. They have disappeared without leaving the slightest trace behind them. Were they works of no importance they might, in the natural course of time, have been left to perish, and their very names would have been obliterated from human memory. But it is not so; for, as now ascertained, most of them contained the true keys to works still extant, and entirely incomprehensible, for the greater portion of their readers, without those additional volumes of Commentaries and explanations. Such are, for instance, the works of Lao-tse, the predecessor of Confucius.”

“He is said to have written 930 books on Ethics and religions, and seventy on magic, one thousand in all. His great work, however, the heart of his doctrine, the "Tao-te-King," or the sacred scriptures of the Taosse, has in it, as Stanislas Julien shows, only "about 5,000 words" (Tao-te-King, p. xxvii.), hardly a dozen of pages, yet Professor Max Muller finds that "the text is unintelligible without commentaries, so that Mr. Julien had to consult more than sixty commentators for the purpose of his translation," the earliest going back as far as the year 163 B.C., not earlier, as we see.


During the four centuries and a half that preceded this earliest of the commentators there was ample time to veil the true Lao-tse doctrine from all but his initiated priests. The Japanese, among whom are now to be found the most learned of the priests and followers of Lao-tse, simply laugh at the blunders and hypotheses of the European Chinese scholars; and tradition affirms that the commentaries to which our Western Sinologues have access are not the real occult records, but intentional veils, and that the true commentaries, as well as almost all the texts, have long since disappeared from the eyes of the profane.”

“The oasis of Tchertchen, for instance, situated about 4,000 feet above the level of the river Tchertchen-D'arya, is surrounded with the ruins of archaic towns and cities in every direction. There, some 3,000 human beings represent the relics of about a hundred extinct nations and races -- the very names of which are now unknown to our ethnologists. An anthropologist would feel more than embarrassed to class, divide and subdivide them; the more so, as the respective descendants of all these antediluvian races and tribes know as little of their own forefathers themselves, as if they had fallen from the moon.


When questioned about their origin, they reply that they know not whence their fathers had come, but had heard that their first (or earliest) men were ruled by the great genii of these deserts. This may be put down to ignorance and superstition, yet in view of the teachings of the Secret Doctrine, the answer may be based upon primeval tradition. Alone, the tribe of Khoorassan claims to have come from what is now known as Afghanistan, long before the days of Alexander, and brings legendary lore to that effect as corroboration.


The Russian traveler, Colonel (now General) Prjevalsky, found quite close to the oasis of Tchertchen, the ruins of two enormous cities, the oldest of which was, according to local tradition, ruined 3,000 years ago by a hero and giant; and the other by the Mongolians in the tenth century of our era.

"The emplacement of the two cities is now covered, owing to shifting sands and the desert wind, with strange and heterogeneous relics; with broken china and kitchen utensils and human bones. The natives often find copper and gold coins, melted silver, ingots, diamonds, and turquoises, and what is the most remarkable -- broken glass..."


"Coffins of some undecaying wood, or material, also, within which beautifully preserved embalmed bodies are found... The male mummies are all EXTREMELY TALL POWERFULLY BUILT MEN [Giants—GJ] with long waving hair... A vault was found with twelve dead men sitting in it. Another time, in a separate coffin, a young girl was discovered by us. Her eyes were closed with golden discs, and the jaws held firm by a golden circlet running from under the chin across the top of the head. Clad in a narrow woolen garment, her bosom was covered with golden stars, the feet being left naked."

(From a lecture by N. M. Prjevalsky.)

To this, the famous traveler adds that all along their way on the river Tchertchen they heard legends about twenty-three towns buried ages ago by the shifting sands of the deserts. The same tradition exists on the Lob-nor and in the oasis of Kerya.”

“The traces of such civilization, and these and like traditions, give us the right to credit other legendary lore warranted by well educated and learned natives of India and Mongolia, when they speak of IMMENSE LIBRARIES reclaimed from the sand, together with various relics of ancient MAGIC lore, which have all been safely stowed away. To recapitulate. The Secret Doctrine was the universally diffused religion of the ancient and prehistoric world. Proofs of its diffusion, authentic records of its history, a complete chain of documents, showing its character and presence in every land, together with the teaching of all its great adepts, exist to this day in the secret crypts of libraries belonging to the Occult Fraternity.”

“This statement is rendered more credible by a consideration of the following facts:

  • the tradition of the thousands of ancient parchments saved when the Alexandrian library was destroyed

  • the thousands of Sanskrit works which disappeared in India in the reign of Akbar

  • the universal tradition in China and Japan that the true old texts with the commentaries, which alone make them comprehensible - amounting to many thousands of volumes - have long passed out of the reach of profane hands

  • the disappearance of the vast sacred and occult literature of Babylon

  • the loss of those keys which alone could solve the thousand riddles of the Egyptian hieroglyphic records

  • the tradition in India that the real secret commentaries which alone make the Veda intelligible, though no longer visible to profane eyes, still remain for the initiate, hidden in secret caves and crypts

  • an identical belief among the Buddhists, with regard to their secret books

“The Occultists assert that all these exist, safe from Western spoliating hands, to re-appear in some more enlightened age, for which in the words of the late Swami Dayanand Sarasvati,

"the Mlechchhas (outcasts, savages, those beyond the pale of Aryan civilization) will have to wait.”

“For it is not the fault of the initiates that these documents are now "lost" to the profane; nor was their policy dictated by selfishness, or any desire to monopolize the life-giving sacred lore. There were portions of the Secret Science that for incalculable ages had to remain concealed from the profane gaze. But this was because to impart to the unprepared multitude secrets of such tremendous importance, was equivalent to giving a child a lighted candle in a powder magazine.”

“Moreover, there is a well-known fact, a very curious one, corroborated to the writer by a reverend gentleman attached for years to a Russian Embassy -- namely, that there are several documents in the St. Petersburg Imperial Libraries to show that, even so late as during the days when Freemasonry, and Secret Societies of Mystics flourished unimpeded in Russia, i.e., at the end of the last and the beginning of the present century, more than one Russian Mystic traveled to Tibet via the Ural mountains in search of knowledge and initiation IN THE UNKNOWN [SUBTERRANEAN] CRYPTS OF CENTRAL ASIA.


And more than one returned years later, with a rich store of such information as could never have been given him anywhere in Europe. Several cases could be cited, and well-known names brought forward, but for the fact that such publicity might annoy the surviving relatives of the said late Initiates. Let any one look over the Annals and History of Freemasonry in the archives of the Russian metropolis, and he will assure himself of the fact stated.”

Vol. 1; Page xxiii to Page xxxvi

According to my research, four mystic Tibet explorers come to mind for the quest of esoteric knowledge:

  1. Theodore Illion—German (Darkness Over Tibet - 1937)

    • “This shaft must be very deep. No one except the ‘Prince of Light’ and a few of the highest initiates who are called the ‘Lords of Compassion’ know where it leads to. Anyone who would find out where it leads to would have to die….there are such secrets.”

      Page 141.

    Illion’s account of Tibet was instrumental in persuading the NAZI government to send yearly expeditions into Tibet. I should point out that Karl Haushofer and Rudolf Hess were both Theosophists and suggest here that Rudolf Hess personally knew of the Dark Star. I may address this in a future essay.

  2. Ferdinand Ossendowski—Russian (Beasts, Men and Gods - 1922)

    • “Then the peoples of ‘Agharti’ will come up from their subterranean caverns to the surface of the Earth.”

      Page 225

  3. T. Lobsang Rampa (The Third Eye - 1956)

    • “From outer space came a WANDERING PLANET and struck the Earth a glancing blow.”

      Page 181

  4. Nicholas Roerich—Russian (Shambhalla - 1930)


      Page 40

From the reports of these mystic travelers, I believe Central Asia holds the key for unlocking a wealth of esoteric knowledge, including our Dark Star binary system.


For a more in-depth look at these explorers, see the ‘Nibiru and the Subterranean Connection’.


HPB not only describes our own Sun but describes the Central Sun (Center of our Galaxy—GJ) and TWO other SUNS in our Solar System! The POLAR SUN and EQUATORIAL SUN.


Could the Polar Sun be Nibiru and the Equatorial Sun be the Dark Star?


See below:

“Thus even the now exoteric Kabalistic teachings speak of a Central Sun, and of three SECONDARY SUNS in each solar system - our own included. As shown in that able though too materialistic work, "New Aspects of Life and Religion," which is a synopsis of the views of the Kabalists in an aspect deeply thought out and assimilated:

“The Central Sun... was to them (as much as to the Aryans) the centre of Rest; the centre to which all motion was to be ultimately referred. Round this central sun... 'the FIRST OF THREE SYSTEMIC SUNS... REVOLVED ON A POLAR PLANE... THE SECOND, ON AN EQUATORIAL PLANE'... and the third only was our visible sun. These four solar bodies were 'the organs on whose action what man calls the creation, the evolution of life on the planet, earth, depends.' The channels through which the influence of these bodies was conveyed to the Earth they (the Kabalists) held to be electrical”

(p. 287)....


"The radiant energy flowing from the central sun called the Earth into being as a watery globe," whose tendency, "as the nucleus of a planetary body, was to rush to the (central) Sun... within the sphere of whose attraction it had been created," "but the radiant energy, similarly electrifying both, withheld the one from the other, and so changed motion towards into motion round the centre of attraction, which the revolving planet (Earth) thus sought to reach.”

“This Kabalistic view is here quoted, to show its perfect identity in spirit with the Eastern doctrine. Explain, or complete the teaching of the SEVEN SUNS with the seven systems of planes of being, of which the "Suns" are the central bodies, and you have the seven angelic planes, whose "Host" are gods thereof, collectively. (See Comm. to Stanza VII Book I.) They are the Head-group divided into four classes from the incorporeal down to the semi-corporeal, which classes are directly connected - though in very different ways as regards voluntary connection and functions - with our mankind. They are three, synthesized by the fourth (the first and highest), which is called the "Central Sun" in the Kabalistic doctrine just quoted.


This is the great difference between the Semitic and the Aryan Cosmogony; one materializing, humanizes the mysteries of nature; the other spiritualizes matter, and its physiology is always made subservient to metaphysics. Thus, though the seventh principle reaches man through all the phases of being, pure as an indiscrete element and an impersonal unity, it passes through (the Kabala teaches from) the CENTRAL SPIRITUAL SUN [Center of the Milky Way—GJ] and Group the SECOND (THE POLAR SUN), which two radiate on man his Atma.


Group THREE (THE EQUATORIAL SUN) cement the Buddhi to Atman and the higher attributes of Manas, while group Four (the spirit of our visible sun) endows him with his Manas and its vehicle - the Kama rupa, or body of passions and desires, the two elements of Ahamkara which evolve individualized consciousness - the personal ego.”

Vol.2; Page 240.

Here is an interesting passage in which I believe HPB describes Nibiru:

STANZA III. - Continued


“7. Behold, Oh Lanoo! ** the RADIANT CHILD of the two, the unparalleled refulgent glory, bright space, SON OF DARK SPACE, who EMERGES FROM THE DEPTHS of the great dark waters. It is Oeaohoo, the younger, the (whom thou knowest now as kwan-shai-yin. -- comment) (a).


HE SHINES FORTH AS THE SUN. He is THE BLAZING DIVINE DRAGON OF WISDOM. The Eka is Chatur (four), and Chatur takes to itself three, and the union produces the Sapta (seven) in whom are the seven which become the Tridasa… (the thrice ten) the hosts and the multitudes (b).



** Lanoo is a student, a chela who studies practical Esotericism.

Here, HPB makes an interesting reference to VULCAN stating its reign is 4,477 years. Although she states that Suidas and Dr. Sepp erroneously said Vulcan’s reign was only 4,477 days. Could 4,477 years really be VULCAN’S orbit? Is Vulcan Nibiru? I wonder...


See below:

“It has been urged against the duration claimed by the Babylonians for their divine ages, that Suidas shows the ancients counting, in their chronological computations, days for years. Dr. Sepp in his ingenious plagiarism -- exposed elsewhere -- of the Hindu 432 in thousands and millions of years (the duration of the Yugas) which he dwarfed to 4,320 lunar years before the "birth of Christ" -- as "foreordained" in the sidereal (besides the invisible) heavens, and proved "by the apparition of the Star of Bethlehem" -- appeals to Suidas and his authority.


But Suidas had no other warrant for it than his own speculations, and he was no Initiate. He cites, as a proof, VULCAN, in showing him as having, according to chronological claim, REIGNED 4,477 YEARS, i.e., [or] 4,477 days, as he thinks, or rendered in years, 12 years, 3 months, and 7 days; he has 5 days in his original -- thus committing an error even in such an easy calculation. (See Suidas, art. [[Heelios]].)”

Vol. 1; Page 619 & 620.

I maintain that Nibiru coming near the Sun and Earth would ‘trigger’ natural events such as Enoch’s visionary Deluge, a pole shift and Sun wobble in which HPB describes below:

“NATURE HAD BEEN ALTERED AT THE PERIOD OF THE UNIVERSAL FLOOD. Precisely so; and the Secret Doctrine teaches that that “order of nature” has been thus altered, and the series of the Earth’s humanities too.


For, as the angel Uriel tells Enoch:

“Behold, I have showed thee all things, O Enoch; and all things I have revealed to thee. Thou seest the Sun, the Moon, and those which conduct the stars in Heaven, which cause all their operations, seasons, and arrivals to return. In the days of sinners THE YEARS SHALL BE SHORTENED…. the moon shall change its laws, etc.”

(chap. lxxix).

In those days also, years before the great Deluge that CARRIED AWAY THE ATLANTEANS and changed the face of the whole earth—because “THE EARTH (ON ITS AXIS) BECAME INCLINED.”

“And now a natural question. Who could have informed the apocryphal author of this powerful vision (to whatever age he may be assigned before the day of Galileo) that THE EARTH COULD OCCASIONALLY INCLINE HER AXIS?”

“There are many such “dark sayings” throughout Puranas, Bible and Mythology; and to the occultist they divulge two facts:

(a) that the ancients knew as well, and better, perhaps, than the moderns do, astronomy, geognosy and cosmography in general

(b) that the globe and its behavior have altered more than once since the primitive state of things

Thus, on the blind faith of his “ignorant” religion, which taught that PHAETON, in his desire to learn the hidden truth, MADE THE SUN DEVIATE [dance and wobble—GJ] FROM ITS ORIGINAL COURSE.”
Vol. 2; Pages 533, 534 & 535

Is HPB hinting that PHAETON was the cause of Noah’s Flood? I tend to agree. PHAETON was one of the two celestial bodies in the Nibiru/Dark Star system. See ‘Nibiru and the Atlantean Connection’.


The following passages portray how HPB makes the connection between NEMESIS and CYCLES:

“There is a purpose in every important act of Nature, whose acts are all cyclic and periodical. But spiritual Forces having been usually confused with the purely physical, the former are denied by, and therefore, have to remain unknown to Science, because left unexamined.”

“No metaphysician or theosophist could demur to these truths, which are all embodied in esoteric teachings. There is a predestination in the geological life of our globe, as in the history, past and future, of races and nations. This is closely connected with what we call Karma and Western Pantheists, "NEMESIS" and "CYCLES." The law of evolution is now carrying us along the ascending arc of our cycle, when the effects will be once more re-merged into, and re-become the (now neutralized) causes, and all things affected by the former will have regained their original harmony. This will be the cycle of our special "Round," a moment in the duration of the great cycle, or the Mahayuga”

Vol. 1; Page 640 and 641.

“THE GRAND CYCLE includes the progress of mankind from the appearance of primordial man of ethereal form. It runs through the inner cycles of his (man's) progressive evolution from the ethereal down to the semi-ethereal and purely physical: down to the redemption of man from his coat of skin and matter, after which it continues running its course downward and then upward again, to meet at the culmination of a Round, when the manvantaric "SERPENT SWALLOWS ITS TAIL" and seven minor cycles are passed.


These are the great Racial Cycles which affect equally all the nations and tribes included in that special Race; but there are minor and national as well as tribal cycles within those, which run independently of each other. They are called in the Eastern esotericism the Karmic cycles. In the West, since Pagan Wisdom has been repudiated as having grown from and been developed by the dark powers supposed to be at constant war and in opposition to the little tribal Jehovah -- the full and awful significance of the Greek Nemesis (or Karma) has been entirely forgotten.


Otherwise Christians would have better realized the profound truth that Nemesis is without attributes; that while the dreaded goddess is absolute and immutable as a Principle, it is we ourselves -- nations and individuals -- who PROPEL HER TO ACTION and give the impulse to its direction. KARMA-NEMESIS IS THE CREATOR OF NATIONS and mortals, but once created, it is they WHO MAKE OF HER EITHER A FURY OR A REWARDING ANGEL. Yea -- "WISE ARE THEY WHO WORSHIP NEMESIS."”

Vol. 1; Page 642

HPB references how the Garuda Bird (see image below) represents THE GREAT CYCLE. I argue the symbolism shown here is uncannily similar to ‘the winged disc’ icon:

“Now, the Secret Doctrine furnishes a key which reveals to us on indisputable grounds of comparative analogy that GARUDA, the allegorical and monstrous half-man and half-bird - the Vahan or vehicle on which Vishnu (who is Kâla, “time”) is shown to ride - is the origin of all other such allegories. He is the Indian PHOENIX, the emblem of cyclic and periodical time, the “man-lion” Singha, of whose representations the so-called “gnostic gems” are so full.


“Over the seven rays of the lion’s crown, and corresponding to their points, stand in many cases, the seven vowels of the Greek alphabet AEHIOY, testifying to the Seven Heavens.” This is the Solar lion and the emblem of the Solar Cycle, AS GARUDA IS THAT OF THE GREAT CYCLE, the “Maha-Kalpa” co-eternal with Vishnu, and also, of course, the emblem of the Sun, and Solar cycle.

"This is shown in the details of the allegory. At his birth, Garuda is mistaken for Agni, the God of Fire, on account of this (GARUDA”S) “DAZZLING SPLENDOUR,” and called thereupon Gaganeswara, “LORD OF THE SKY.” Again, his being represented as Osiris, and by many heads of allegorical monsters on the Abraxas (gnostic) gems, with the head and beak of an eagle or a hawk (solar birds), DENOTES GARUDA’S SOLAR AND CYCLIC CHARACTER. His Son is JâTABU, THE CYCLE OF 60,000 years.”
Vol.2; Page 564

Here, HPB references ‘flaming messengers’ and what they portend:

“This because their little historical period, so called, allows them no margin for comparison. Sidereal heaven is before them; and though their spiritual vision is still unopened and the atmospheric dust of terrestrial origin seals their sight and chains it to the limits of physical systems, still they do not fail to perceive the movements and note the behavior of meteors and comets. They record the periodical advents of those wanderers and "FLAMING MESSENGERS," and prophesy, in consequence, earthquakes, meteoric showers, THE APPARITION OF CERTAIN STARS, comets, etc., etc. are they soothsayers for all that? No, they are learned astronomers.”

“Why, then, should occultists and astrologers, as learned, be disbelieved, when they prophesy the return of some cyclic event on the same mathematical principle? Why should the claim that they know it be ridiculed? Their forefathers and predecessors, having recorded the recurrence of such events in their time and day, throughout a period embracing hundreds of thousands of years, the conjunction of the same constellations must necessarily produce, if not quite the same, at any rate, similar effects.

"Are the prophecies derided, because of the claim of the hundreds of thousands of years of observation, and the millions of years of the human races? In its turn modern Science is laughed at for its far more modest geological and anthropological figures, by those who hold to Biblical chronology. Thus Karma adjusts even human laughter at the mutual expense of sects, learned societies, and individuals.

"Yet in the prognostication of such future events, at any rate, all foretold on the authority of CYCLIC RECURRENCES, there is no psychic phenomenon involved. It is neither prevision, nor prophecy; no more than is the signaling of a comet OR STAR, SEVERAL YEARS BEFORE ITS APPEARANCE. It is simply knowledge and mathematically correct computations which enable the wise men of the east to foretell, for instance, that England is on the eve of such or another catastrophe; France, nearing such a point of her cycle, and Europe in general threatened with, or rather, on the eve of, a cataclysm, which her own cycle of racial Karma has led her to.


The reliability of the information depends, of course, on the acceptation or rejection of the claim for a tremendous period of historical observation. Eastern Initiates maintain that they have preserved records of the racial development and of EVENTS OF UNIVERSAL IMPORT ever since the beginning of the Fourth Race -- that which preceded being traditional.


Moreover, those who believe in Seership and Occult powers will have no difficulty in crediting the general character, at least, of the information given, even if traditional, once the latter is checked and corrected by the corroboration of clairvoyance and esoteric knowledge. But in the present case no such metaphysical belief is claimed as our chief dependence, but a proof is given on what, to every Occultist, is quite scientific evidence -- the records preserved through the Zodiac for incalculable ages.”

“It is now amply proved that even horoscopes and judiciary astrology are not quite based on a fiction, and that stars and constellations, consequently, have an occult and mysterious influence on, and connection with, individuals. And if with the latter, why not with nations, races, and mankind in bulk? This, again, is a claim made on the authority of the Zodiacal records. We shall examine then, if you please, how far the Zodiac was known to the ancients, and how far it is forgotten by the moderns.”

Vol. 1; Page 646

This is an interesting passage. HPB references a ‘TWELFTH STAR.’ Could this be, in any way, connected to Sitchin’s TWELFTH PLANET?:

“The Old Testament is full of allusions to the twelve zodiacal signs, and the whole scheme is built upon it -- heroes, personages, and events. Thus in the dream of Joseph, who saw eleven "stars" bowing to the TWELFTH, which was HIS “STAR”….[See Edgar Cayce’s HIS STAR reference in ‘Nibiru and the Atlantean Connection’—GJ]


The Roman Catholics have discovered in it, moreover, a prophecy of CHRIST, WHO IS THAT TWELFTH STAR, they say, and the eleven apostles; the absence of the twelfth being also regarded as a prophetic allusion to the treachery of Judas. The twelve sons of Jacob are again a reference to the same, as justly pointed out by Villapandus (Temple de Jerusalem, Vol. II., p. 2nd part, chap. xxx).


Sir James Malcolm, in his History of Persia (ch. vii.), shows the Dabistan echoing all such traditions about the Zodiac. He traces the invention of it to the palmy days of the golden age of Iran, remarking that one of the said traditions maintains that the genii of the planets are represented under the same shapes and figures they had assumed, when they showed themselves to several holy prophets, and have thus led to the establishment of the rites based on the Zodiac.”

Pythagoras, and after him Philo Judaeus, held the number 12 as very sacred. "The dodecahedron is a perfect number." It is the one among the signs of the Zodiac, Philo adds, that the sun visits in twelve months, and it is to honor that sign that Moses divided his nation into twelve tribes, established the twelve cakes (Levit. xxiv., 5) of the shewbread, and placed twelve precious stones around the ephod of the pontiffs. (See De Profugis.)”

“According to Seneca, BEROSUS TAUGHT PROPHECY OF EVERY FUTURE EVENT AND CATACLYSM BY THE ZODIAC; and the time fixed by him for the conflagration of the world (pralaya), and another for a deluge, is found to answer to the time given in an ancient Egyptian papyrus. IT COMES AT EVERY RENEWAL OF THE CYCLE OF THE SIDEREAL YEAR OF 25,868 YEARS. The names of the Akkadian months were called by, and derived from, the names of the signs of the Zodiac, and the Akkadians themselves are far earlier than the Chaldaeans.


Mr. Proctor shows, in his Myths and Marvels of Astronomy, that the ancient astronomers had acquired a system of the most accurate astronomy 2,400 years B.C.; the Hindus date their Kali Yug from a great periodical conjunction of the planets thirty-one centuries B.C.; and, withal, it is the Greeks belonging to the expedition of Alexander the Great, who were the instructors of the Aryan Hindus in astronomy!”

Vol.1; Page 649.

Continuing along, HPB states:

“There are those learned iconoclasts among Egyptologists, who say that "when the Pharisees sought a 'sign from heaven' Jesus said, 'THERE SHALL NO SIGN BE GIVEN BUT THE SIGN OF JONAS' (Mat. xvi. 4)... The sign of Jonas is that of the Oan or fishman of Nineveh... Assuredly there was no other sign than that of the SUN REBORN in Pisces. The voice of the Secret Wisdom says those who are looking for signs can have no other than that of the returning FISH-MAN ICHTHYS, OANNES, or Jonas [Amphibian or one of the ‘Serpent Race.’ See David Icke’s material—GJ] -- who could not be made flesh."

It would appear that Kepler maintained it as a positive fact that, at the moment of the "incarnation," all the planets were in conjunction in the sign of Pisces, called by the Jews (the Kabalists) the "constellation of the Messiah."

"It is in this constellation," he averred, "that was placed the STAR OF THE MAGI."

This statement, quoted by Dr. Sepp (Vie de notre Seigneur Jesus Christ, Vol. I. p. 9), emboldened him to remark that,

"all the Jewish traditions while ANNOUNCING THAT STAR, THAT MANY NATIONS HAVE SEEN,"(!) added that "it would absorb the seventy planets that preside over the destinies of various nations on this globe. In virtue of those natural prophecies," explains Dr. Sepp, "it was written in the stars of the firmament that the Messiah would be born in the lunar year of the world 4320, in that memorable year when the entire choir of the planets would be feasting its jubilee."”

And lastly, HPB references a NEW SUN that will triumphantly appear:

“Without stopping to notice this very unscientific chronology more than is necessary, we may make a few remarks that may be found to the point. These figures of 4,320 lunar years of the world (in the Bible the solar years are used) are not fanciful, as such, even if their application is quite erroneous; for they are only the distorted echo of the primitive esoteric, and later on Brahminical doctrine concerning the Yugas.


A "Day" of Brahma equals 4,320,000,000 years, as also a "Night" of Brahma, or the duration of Pralaya, after which a NEW SUN rises triumphantly over a new manvantara, for the septenary chain it illuminates.”

As mentioned earlier, it seems likely that the Theosophists and Rosicrucians have acquired and continue to search for ancient manuscripts and documents buried deep within antediluvian vaults around the globe.


The Secret Doctrine’ is a great example of such a compilation of esoteric knowledge and I believe my supporting list of evidence has brought forth a solid connection between HPB’s material and the Dark Star binary system.
