The Third Theosophical Ray is the Ray of adaptability and a subtle sense of timing and of interrelationships. Controlling it is the entity Mahachohn who it seems has authority like a Prime Minister over the Third to Seventh Rays since they each affect in some way the mind, bliss or activity. The Masters of these Rays are similar to ministers of his Cabinet. This Ray’s function might be considered astrological; that is, astrology properly being thought of as the science of interconnectedness of all things in the universe, both the movement of the stars and the affairs of men, to some these are interrelated. Also influenced by this Ray is the correct understanding of history and its great cycles. Its Master is known as Venetian. A.G.H.
