The Christ: Forerunner to the
Aquarian Age 2000 Years Ago.
It is indeed of great moment to me that
the words of Chohan Hilarion and Master DK, for myself also, concur, fuse and form conjunction on this age-old point. Master
Hilarion does not go into enormous detail on this but the vast depth, weight and insight with which he writes his other great
volumes of work make all the more for my understanding of his few words here on this subject.
of that particular century cycle 'not an ordinary century cycle' adds great weight (from a Chohan) that the 1900's were an
extraordinary century, one of the precession of the sun into Aquarius. This together with the sublime astrological authority
of DK marks with magnificent revelation the year 1945! Some astrological commentators have made it their purpose to announce
that in a, until recently undisclosed paper, DK informs RA that the sun is not yet passing into the zodiacal sign Aquarius.
Indeed it is said we are simply nearing it and that 2117 it the date of initial transition. Some few others,
and myself, believe that this is inconsistent with the astrological material in the public domain as given by DK and
Material has been presented and inferred by these astrological
commentators which has stated that the 1945 date, that time of such spiritual magnitude, is not at all the marking of the
point in time at which the sun passes into the zodiacal sign Aquarius. That it is but the coming in of the new age of the
seventh ray only. I am of the position that both myself, an esoteric psychologist and cosmologist, and other much more distinguished
esoteric astrologers, are of the firm opinion and therefore assert the fact in first ray emphasis, that DK has already stated
that the sun is indeed "entering into" initiation like, with great ire, the sign Aquarius! That it is also probable that this
coincided with the dawning of the new age of the seventh ray is not at all un-likely but probable and even demonstrated by
"Note that the period mentioned is 2,500 years not 2,160
years, the usual cycle for a zodiac sign’s precession. 2,500 refers to a seventh ray cycle which unfolds over this period
and encompasses the zodiacal cycle of Aquarius on the lesser wheel of 2,160." PL.
The fusion of Piscean energy, generated during the past
two thousand years of Christ's spiritual activity and the Aquarian energies to be generated and active on Earth during the
next two thousand years, or two thousand five hundred. EA 98. DK AAB.
We can see that DK does indeed in the above passage refer
to a 2000 year cycle and a 2500 year cycle clearly demonstrating that the seventh ray and the zodiacal marking of the sun
entering the water bearer coincide invalidating any assumption that they do not and that DK never talks about the sun entering
Moreover, as they have the matter, not only would it be
much to coincidental that the world war were to finish just as the Sun initiated into that Aquarian age, but that it is quite
un-tenable! I myself propose with simplicity that the ww1&2 were won by mid 1942 as the teaching and the intuitive inform
us. The enormity of that fact escapes them.
Humanity won the spiritual day and moved forward with the
Sun, entering into, the sign Aquarius, having destroyed much of the old forms.
Had this not happened as the sun entered the new sign, the
future for humanity would have been severely curtailed for hundreds of years. Yet humanity saved the day and earned the right
to celebrate with the Lord Christ, the marking in time of the new world order. There was never anything un-tenable or coincidental
about this stupendous event in May/June 1945. JPC.

Himself in June, 1945, and entered upon His responsibilities as the Forerunner and the Teacher of the Aquarian Age.”
"Note the earlier part of this passage is in the future
tense: ‘will set loose in the Aquarian Age’. The latter words are most telling, Christ was pledging (committing
himself) to the immediate task at hand as a forerunner of the age. (The definition of forerunner: a predecessor, one who foreruns;
a herald or harbinger.) In other words one who comes before the age, though who will of course preside over that age. In other
words, Christ pledged himself as the forerunner of the Aquarian Age, whilst at its portal in 1945." PL.
Another point to be considered, is that in the recent paper
pronouncing the 2117 date, it is stated that the Christ is only acting as forerunner from 1945 onwards, thus is his title
referring that only now is he forerunner preceding the Aquarian age only now for the time ahead. But this is wholly inaccurate
and incorrect. We are clearly told that 2000 years ago at the marking of the Piscean age the Christ asserted himself as the
bearer of waters for the thirsty. That he was the forerunner of the Aquarian age 2000 years ago! DK said...
When Christ completes the work during the next two thousand
years which He inaugurated two thousand years ago, that affirmative Voice will surely again be heard and divine recognition
of His coming will be accorded. RC 40.
Thirdly, this Law of Service was expressed for the first
time fully by the Christ two thousand years ago. He was the forerunner of the Aquarian Age, and hence His constant emphasis
upon the fact that He was the "water of life", the "living water" which men needed. EP2 119.
Therefore, it is my contention that DK does indeed clearly
and surely inform us that it is an astronomical fact that the Sun is in Aquarius... "This
passing of the Sun into the sign Aquarius is an astronomical fact, as any one can ascertain
by writing to any observatory; it is not an astrological prognostication." RC 80.

I would remind
you also that it is still a question unanswered as to whether we are as yet really entered into
the sign Aquarius; it is more probable that we are simply nearing it with great rapidity and so becoming
increasingly responsive to its influences and less responsive to those of Pisces. I would suggest that another 177
years must go by before we enter into what you
have called the last decan of Aquarius but which might, from a certain point of view be the first decan. PL. March

No Mans Land:
The words of the master concerning "no man's land" certainly
do not invalidate his other points regarding 1945 as the marker and commencment of the transitional period. Indeed, in my
mind, they serve to validate this date. It is one that Hierarchy has decided upon to draw the line in the heavens, to mark
and celebrate a momentous point in time. He specificly states "this transition period through which the world is now passing"
EA 238. I have no reason to think that a 2117 date should take presedence over
1945. This simply is not a possibility for me.
We are conclusivly told that 2035 see's the full work of
Libra concluded, regards no man's land, as mankind will be set the spirtual and legal framework for the greater rise of the
Aquarian energies already in action, as dispensed and distributed via the head of Hierarchy, the Christ, regarding group service
ect from that date on.
So no, for myself, 2117 is invalidated by the Tibatan in
all these passages. JPC.
No-man's land, on the indefinable. LOS 16.
Elsewhere DK terms "no-man's land" as "indefinable" i.e.
a period where no single energy dominates. He goes on to say in LOS 16, "Perhaps the veil, when lifted, will reveal to us
the promised land of man's dreams and aspirations.
So no-mans land is a veiling condition, period or cycle
not defining one state or the other entirely. Therefore we have at present an inaugurating period or as stated the entering
of the "anti-chamber" to the New Age of Aquarius, but the new age of Aquarius none the less.
This is not the fuller and clearer period after 2035 and
onwards, but is equally not the Piscean age per se by any stretch of the imagination. JPC.
In June, 1945, at the time of the full moon (so significant
a day in the spiritual experience of the Christ), He definitely and consciously took over His duties and responsibilities
as the Teacher and Leader during the Aquarian solar cycle. He is the first of the great world Teachers to cover two zodiacal
cycles - the Piscean and the Aquarian. RC 83.
"This inflow of Aquarian energy is one of the factors which
will enable the Christ to complete His task as world Savior and world Teacher. It was to the definite performance of His duties
as Distributor, Nourisher and Dispenser that He pledged Himself in June, 1945, and entered upon His responsibilities as the
Forerunner and the Teacher of the Aquarian Age." RC 86.
year 1945 marked the period of the climaxing of the intensification of the vibration within the human family via the
triangle of Leo, Capricorn and Pisces. This special augmentation
aided in the initiation of the consciousness of the masses of men into the Aquarian Age. This
intensification of the vibration in the human family which climaxed in 1945 with the investiture of the Aquarian Christ at
the Gemini full Moon marked only the third time in planetary history wherein this specially augmented situation occurred.
Again, the central position of the year 1945 in this triangular augmentation points to the pivotal and penultimate alignments
in effect which led to the inauguration of the Age of Aquarius on the full Moon of May 26th.
not that eleven is the number of the Initiate and that today it is the eleventh house which is so dominant; forget not that
Aquarius, the eleventh sign, is the sign of universal relationships, interplay and consciousness. For all this, the combination
of signs, Leo, Capricorn and Pisces - is preparing the race. [EA542]

their potency and the climax of their interrelation is being reached at this time. From 1975 on, that potency will greatly

three constellations are: Leo, Capricorn and Pisces. These are curiously and most mysteriously related to the fourth kingdom

and you have four energies which are playing upon the vehicles of men and producing peculiar effects - both destructive and
before has this relation and intensification of vibration occurred: At the time of the coming of the Sons of Mind to the Earth
during the Lemurian age and once in the Atlantean period at the climax of the conflict between the Lords of the Dark Face
and the Lords of the Shining Countenance. (See Volume II of The Secret Doctrine or the Vishnu Purana. A.A.B.) In the earlier
activity, the fourth active constellation was Gemini and in the Atlantean it was Sagittarius. The effect then was on the physical
plane (the earliest was on the mental) and the great Flood eventuated to which the Bible bears testimony. It brought about
the destruction of the humanity of the time, but released the indwelling life for further experience and development. [EA538]
supreme importance of the formation of this triangle of constellations, occuring in the Aryan root race, for only the third
time in planetary history, which culminated for ultimate GOOD with the investiture of the Aquarian Christ in June 1945, [and
the defeat of the Black Lodge] can not be underestimated.
this reference from DK, points to the pivotal and penultimate nature of the year 1945 in the consciousness of the human race.
comments about the masses of men being initiated into the Aquarian Age are quite unambiguous.
wonders what cosmic triangles or other alignments will be operating in 2117. Well, none that we know, is all that I can remark.
I highly reccomend reading this paper on the  date for
the beginning of the Age of Aquarius, based on HPB, by David Pratt.

In a footnote to the first part of her article 'The
Esoteric Character of the Gospels', published in November 1887, H.P. Blavatsky wrote:
"There are several remarkable cycles that come to a
close at the end of this century. First, the 5,000 years of the Kaliyuga cycle; again the Messianic cycle of the Samaritan
(also Kabalistic) Jews of the man connected with Pisces (Ichthys or 'Fish-man' Dag). It is a cycle, historic and not very
long, but very occult, lasting about 2,155 solar years, but having a true significance only when computed by lunar months.
It occurred 2410 and 255 BC, or when the equinox entered into the sign of the Ram, and again into that of Pisces. When it
enters, in a few years, the sign of Aquarius, psychologists will have some extra work to do, and the psychic idiosyncrasies
of humanity will enter on a great change."
According to the average, occult figures for the precession
of the equinoxes, the vernal equinox falls back 50 seconds of arc a year, and therefore takes 2160 years to move through one
constellation of the zodiac (30°), and 25,920 years for a complete circuit of the zodiac. In reality, the rate of precession
varies. Blavatsky used the figure of 50.10 seconds of arc per year, equivalent to 25,868 years for a complete precessional
cycle. Dividing the latter figure by 12, gives (in round figures) 2155 years as the length of a messianic cycle.
The rate of precession for the epoch J2000.0 is 50.288 arc-seconds per year, and the rate is said to be increasing by 0.0002
arc-seconds per year. It should be noted that the constellations of the zodiac do not really extend over exactly 30° of the
ecliptic; they are of varying sizes, and some of them overlap in the sense that some lines of ecliptic longitude pass through
two constellations. In addition, there is a gap between Scorpio and Sagittarius, where the ecliptic passes through the southern
part of a thirteenth constellation, Ophiucus, the Serpent Bearer.
The kali-yuga began in February 3102 BC, and the first 5000 years therefore came to an end in February 1899
(= 5000 - 3102 + 1).3 Blavatsky suggests that the Piscean Age also came to a close at the end of the 19th century. She indicates
that 2155 years elapsed between the start of the Age of Aries in 2410 BC and the start of the Piscean Age in 255 BC. If the
Piscean Age also lasted 2155 years, the Aquarian Age would have begun in 1901 (= 2155 - 255 + 1) if 255 BC is a chronological
date, or 1900 if it is an astronomical date. On the basis of the current rate of increase in precession, the Piscean Age would
have lasted 2157 years (assuming that Pisces covers 30° of arc).
