|Triangle One is produced by the
interrelation of energies from Leo, Saturn and Shamballa. Its potency is naturally felt
more directly in the triangle of the Hierarchy than in that of Humanity. These three
energies are sometimes called (in an effort to make understanding more easy and to
simplify comprehension) the "triple energy of WILL":
- The will of self-determination - Leo.
- The will of sacrifice - Pisces.
- The will to choose - Capricorn.
because the Shamballa force lies behind the other two triangles and is the recipient of
energy from the three above constellations, blending them into the united expression of
will, and thus proves to be the custodian of divine purpose. The triangles of which the
Hierarchy and Humanity are the expression are becoming responsive to Shamballa - the
hierarchical center greatly so and the human center gradually so. This first or
fundamental triangle is occult in the truest sense of the word to even the trained
occultist and to the majority of the members of the Hierarchy. Therefore only a few points
can be mentioned in connection with it as there is little to be found in even the advanced
disciple with which to reach real understanding. The information must perforce remain
academic and theoretical.
- Leo, which is the will of the self-conscious Entity to manifest, holds the clue or key
to the entire problem of self-conscious being, whether it is the will-to-be of a planetary
Logos, of a group or of a man. The self-consciousness of man is inherent in the planet
itself, which is the life expression of a fully self-conscious Being. The use of the will
through the Shamballa center  involves the conscious use of that energy by the
planetary Logos; this is evoking response today from the world of men in terms of will,
both higher and lower. The willful (self-willed) man of the world is apt to be more
responsive to this Shamballa force than is the disciple or the aspirant because they are
more attuned to the gentler vibration of the Hierarchy. I have earlier told you that this
Leo force from Shamballa is finding direct entry into the human center instead of
indirectly via the Hierarchy as has hitherto been the case. The implications of this are
- Saturn. This energy is primarily concerned with presenting opportunity to the Hierarchy
and its affiliated disciples. The phrase that "Saturn is the planet of
discipleship" is basically true because ordinary average man, except in group
formation, does not come so potently under its influence. For the Hierarchy - as a group -
is facing a great crisis of approach to Shamballa, analogous to that confronting Humanity
today, as it seeks approach and contact with the Hierarchy. Thus there are two
interrelated crises affecting both Humanity and the Hierarchy, and these should produce -
if correctly effected - that which is called alignment or integration, resulting in a far
freer inflow of divine energy. Both these "approaches" (which are in the nature
of magnetic attractive "pulls") are conditioned by Saturn; in the case of
Humanity this pull comes via the Hierarchy and - apart from that Hierarchy - mankind
cannot today surmount or properly handle the crisis. This should be remembered and should
speed the work of the disciples and aspirants of the world as they struggle for human
liberation and to  bring about divine intervention. The intervention desired should
come via the Hierarchy, if it is not to be too destructive in its effect. The last
major intervention in Atlantean days came via Shamballa and resulted in the partial
destruction of entire continents and lands.
These three triangles of energy can, therefore, be seen as basic and determining in all
planetary affairs and event-producing. I have consequently chosen to consider them in our
efforts to comprehend this basic astrological science.
