The Hidden Energies of Hours
The ancients viewed life in a very different
perspective from that of most of us today. Their perceptions were much more
tightly attuned to mysterious forces of nature that have only recently begun
to be rediscovered by science, after several centuries of "rational"
ignorance and misunderstanding...
Each day is now divided into 24 equal hours of 60
minutes each, as defined by the clock. However, in earlier times, time was not
so rigid. For those dwelling in the days when time was measured by the sundial,
things were more flexible. This is the time when astrology was first
developed, as a way of understanding the natural rhythms.
The hours of the day are ruled by planets in the
Chaldean order from Saturn inward to the Moon. The days began at sunset, not
midnight, and the period of daylight (or night) was divided by twelve. Thus
hours could be more or less than 60 minutes each, as judged by today's "
atomic clock standard", though not by theirs.
Many people in the 21st century have difficulty in grasping this perspective,
the underlying platform of understanding which imbues the world of the
the initiate and the shaman.

Scientific instruments and mathematical formulae are calibrating the scale and
presence of powerful electromagnetic, nuclear and other forces that had been
completely unsuspected by conventionally educated men and women the space of a
few decades ago.
Many scientists, rationalists and "lovers of truth" would still deny
the existence of anything that cannot be measured and defined by current, or
often even quite outdated technologies. These individuals, comprising a broad
spectrum of our educational
and scientific communities, are caught up in a world-view that clearly
exhibits signs of its 18th and 19th century origins.
This view of the universe—one that envisages a sort of clanking, mechanistic
environment, subject only to the ravages of entropic tendencies—sees our
world as being totally devoid of consciousness. Devotees of the doctrines of
materialism and its retarded child behaviourism, have been known to state
fervently that consciousness is merely a byproduct of chemical reactions in
the brain, or even that the very concept of consciousness is completely
imaginary! This materialistic outlook, however, is one that has fortunately
begun to fall from favour.
Levels of Consciousness
Many intelligent and sensitive people in our society now recognise that life
and consciousness exist on many levels, both concrete and subtle. Our five
senses have been proven by science to be quite limited in their ability to
perceive reality. Even our most sensitive machinery has been shown to interact
with its environment in such a way as to actually affect the results of the
experiment that is being monitored (in other words, nothing that is looked at
behaves in quite the same way as it would were it not to be looked at!).

The ancients had a rather more relaxed and holistic view of the world, which
is after all the matrix of our existence (at least those among them who had
been initiated into the meaning of the mysteries of life). They perceived the
living unity of reality and its periodic subdivision into a universal system
of hierarchies, consisting of greater or lesser degrees of consciousness and
These varying degrees, or units of consciousness, have been described by many
people who have come into personal contact with such forces, or beings, in
both past and present times. The Church refers to these forces as angelic (or
demonic) entities. Knowledge of such powers is widespread and fully
documented, though much scoffed at and pooh-poohed by many people in modem
times. Perhaps I should add that such energies are also known (and named) in
all other religions and ancient philosophic systems, as well as in the
Judeo-Christian-lslamic ethos, with which most of us in the West are more
Myriads of Beings
Myriads of intelligent and crypto-intelligent entities inhabit every part of
the universe, at every level. Some are localised; others are extremely
wide-ranging. Some are denizens of the earth; some inhabit the elements,
according to their natures. People may refer to these energies as Allies,
Guides, Guardian Angels, Genii, or Spirits, but every one of us has at least
one of these beings assigned to travel with us along our journey through life.
Some stay with us always; others appear for specific reasons, like stations on
It is possible to contact and communicate with these beings, or energy
structures; it can also be quite useful and mutually beneficial to do so. It
has traditionally been considered easier to make contact with these essences
at particular times and under conditions that are harmonious with their
natures. Without going into any great detail about the methods that should be
explored, this article presents tables indicating the planetary and angelic
rulerships of the hours of the day.
