The 7th Ray, and the energies of the Aquarian Age which it stimulates, began coming into
manifestation in the current world cycle in the year 1675, while the influences of the 6th Ray
and the Piscean Era were just beginning to wane.  As the New Age energies gain the strength of
their expression, the characteristics of the 7th Ray will become increasingly apparent to us

The 7th Ray is essentially an agent of fusion, blending and coordination.  Its main function
is to work for the infusion of the energies of spirit with the substance of matter  "Matter
and energy are interchangeable" is the message contained within Einstein's  formula of
relativity: E=mc 2.  "Matter is Spirit at its lowest point of manifestation and Spirit is
matter at its highest," said HPB.

"When matter and spirit vibrate at the same rate, evolution and involution will cease," say
the Ancient Wisdom Teachings.  Thus the 7th Ray demonstrates itself most clearly thorough the
transformation of matter.  In this respect, it is the working of the 7th Ray which aid in the
fusion of the Soul and personality, and the resulting reorientation of an individual's life
purpose and direction.  It is this process of Soul infusion that can be symbolically rendered
by the 7th Ray alchemist as the process of changing lead into gold.  The hope for the Aquarian
Age, the Age of the 7th Ray, is for such a collective transformation and reorientation to take
place for humanity. . .

The 7th Ray is particularly associated with the 7th place of manifestation-the physical.  Its
purpose, therefore, in terms of physical reality, is to bring out into objective appearance
all the latent spirituality qualities contained within a given form.  An individual who has
actively integrated his or her lower and Higher selves and is living the of a spiritually
realized human being reveal it by the special radiation he exudes.

The 7th also bring its quality of radiation into the mineral kingdom, to which it is
especially connected.  It is this 7th Ray influence which stimulates the intense qualities of
attractiveness and potency in gemstones, as well as the inherent radioactivity of certain
elements.  The 7th is most particularly the Ray of crystals. . . . 

The 7th Ray unifies, but I also contains the potential for conformity.  This can be the
emotional conformity of Cancer, where everyone shares the same feelings in order to lend
security to the  whole.  It may also be the social conformity of etiquette and collective
social behavioral patterns expressed through Libra.  This is most notably demonstrated by
Japan and the Japanese, who are a nation and a people strongly influenced by Libra and the 7th
Ray. . .

Like the other 6 Rays, the 7th also has several other names associated with it.  Some are: 
the Unveiled Magician; the Bestower of Light from the Second Lord; the Custodian of the
Seventh Plane; the Builder of the Square; the Expression of the Will; and the Revealer of

People who are especially connected to the 7th Ray are lovers of ceremony.  They delight when
things are done properly and in order.  (As in the Co-Masons)
