Esoteric astrology is based on Alice Bailey's "Ageless Wisdom" teachings, which she said were relayed by her Tibetan Master Djwhal Khul. The esoteric astrologers who follow the teachings of Bailey typically base their work on her five-volume Treatise on the Seven Rays, particularly volume three which focuses on astrology.
Esoteric Astrology is said to give a larger perspective of life; that humanity is not just inhabiting a little planet on its own in the solar system, but participating as an energy center within a greater solar life.
