     Dear Friend,

     We thank you for your interest in our Teachings. Below are listed  the
     URL addresses for the first lessons of our correspondence courses.  We
     hope you enjoy studying them. Please read further.

     Upon submission of your first lesson to us, it will  be corrected  and
     returned to you via e-mail with the URL of the next lesson.

     Here is how it works: When your lesson is received you will be assigned a
     corrector and that corrector will work with you through all your lessons.
     He/She will review your submitted lesson and send it back to you with the
     URL of the next one or two lessons. Please understand that there is no
     rush to finish the lessons and while you are waiting for the next lesson,
     you can be reading the Cosmo or any of Max Heindel's other books. There is
     always plenty of material for you to study while waiting for your next
     lesson. Our correctors are not always able to return any lesson as fast
     as you might like. But the path back to God is not a foot race and is
     achieved through service to others, not through study. Please remember this
     if you become impatient along the way.

       you can download our e-books or any of the many .pdf files or or any of the
       many .epub files we have. Later, when you have the opportunity to make a
       donation to The Rosicrucian Fellowship, we shall be grateful to receive it.
       Thank you.

                               ABOUT OUR COURSES

     The following courses - offered on a love offering basis - are open to
     all  except   hypnotists  and   professional  mediums,   palmists  and
     astrologers, and are available in several languages.

                               PHILOSOPHY COURSES

     1. Preliminary Course (12 lessons).  Completion allows one to become a
     member of The Rosicrucian Fellowship.
                                 By Max Heindel
                              (our main textbook)

     This book gives a complete outline of the  Western Wisdom  Teaching as
     far  as  it may  be made  public at  the present  time. It  contains a
     comprehensive outline  of the  evolutionary processes  of man  and the
     universe, correlating science with religion. The author received  this
     Teaching personally  from the  Rosicrucian Brotherhood.   It is  their
     latest communication.

     An  inspiring  book  containing  investigated facts  which bridge  the
     seeming gap between Religion and Science; facts that thrill the modern
     intellect and comfort the old-fashioned heart.   Occultism points  the
     way to Christ when faith alone cannot find Him.

     For a book intended specially to give busy people a solution to life's
     basic  problems  as  contained  in  the  mind-   and  heart-satisfying
     Rosicrucian  Philosophy,   please  read   The  Rosicrucian  Mysteries.

     2. Supplementary Course (after completing above course - 40 lessons)

                               No Printed Answers

     The first Supplementary lesson is sent  when we  return the  student's
     answer to the Preliminary Lesson No. 12.  This  Supplementary work  is
     entirely  optional  but  we  consider it  most valuable  in furthering
     spiritual development. The Supplementary Course is not connected  with
     the Student's Monthly Lesson and Letter.

                          THE STUDENT BI-MONTHLY MAIL
                    Enclosed Card to be Signed and Returned

     This mail  is sent  after the  student has  completed the  Preliminary
     Course. It goes out from another Department and is the  only one  sent
     at a given date. No questions are asked in these  lessons, no  answers
     expected, but if you wish to keep your connection with the Rosicrucian
     Fellowship you must sign and return to Headquarters  the card  for two
     months that  is enclosed.   After you  have sent  in 12  cards for  24
     months, consecutively, you may apply for Probationership.

                          WESTERN WISDOM BIBLE COURSE

     This profound course will help the Student to recognize in the Bible a
     spiritual  guide  of  inestimable  value  given  to  humanity  by  the
     Recording  Angels,  and  will  enable  the  Student  to  interpret and
     understand its hitherto unrevealed secrets of life and  being to  such
     an extent  that they  find its  truths corroborated  and illumined  by
     scientific discoveries. Parables and seemingly insignificant incidents
     become revealed as purveyors of basic  scientific spiritual  laws upon
     which a more satisfactory and truly successful life  may be  patterned
     (28 lessons).

                          SPIRITUAL ASTROLOGY COURSES

     The Junior Course covers the setting up of the chart and then advances
     to  the  reading  of  it, showing  the Student  how to  synthesize the
     horoscope as a whole and arrive at a point where the message contained
     therein may be read (26 lessons).

     The Senior Course is devoted to the esoteric  phases, particularly  in
     connection with one's spiritual development (12 lessons).

     The Senior Extension Course  devotes its  first 10  lessons to  an in-
     depth  reading  of the  horoscope, at  the same  time correlating  the
     astrological data  with the  Rosicrucian Philosophy.   The last  three
     lessons are devoted to the progression  of the  horoscope, directions,
     and transits (13 lessons).

              Materials needed for the three Courses in Astrology:

     - "Simplified Scientific Ephemeris" for 1911, 1912, and  1932 computed
     for NOON.

     - "Simplified Scientific Tables of Houses".

     - "Simplified Scientific Astrology" (Complete textbook  on the  art of
     erecting horoscopes, with dictionary of astrological terms).

     - "The  Message of  the Stars"  (An esoteric  exposition of  Natal and
     Medical Astrology explaining the arts of  reading and  progressing the
     Horoscope and diagnosing diseases).

     - Horoscope Data Sheet (one dozen) NOON.

     - Rosicrucian Fellowship Ephemeris Software (not required, but perhaps
     useful). RF_Astro also has ephemeris calculation capabilities.

     Dear Friend,

     We are happy to have your  application for  our Astrology  course. Our
     three courses  in Astrology  are based  on the  Teachings as  given to
     humanity  by  the  Brothers  of  the  Rosicrucian  Order  through  The
     Rosicrucian Cosmo-Conception.

     We think it would be advisable to enroll in the Preliminary Philosophy
     Course (twelve lessons) along with your  Astrology course,  because we
     think your study of Spiritual Astrology will be  more meaningful.   We
     trust that the understanding of life and its problems offered  by this
     course will bring you much comfort and joy.

     A new  Age is  dawning, and  wonderful opportunities  await those  who
     understand and  cooperate with  the cosmic  forces operating  to break
     humanity's bond of materialism and usher  in a  new order  with higher
     spiritual concepts.   As we  bring ourselves  into harmony  with these
     forces,  we  not only  greatly hasten  our own  progress, but  make it
     possible for us to aid in the great work of uplifting all humanity.

     These lessons are not sold. The Rosicrucian Teaching is free,  but the
     expenses incidental to their  production and  distribution are  met by
     free-will offerings from students "as the heart dictates and the means
     permit". However,  all receive  the same  teaching and  attention even
     though circumstances may be  such that  some are  unable to  assist in
     supporting the work.

     Please  feel  that  we  are your  friends and  that we  consider it  a
     pleasure and a privilege to assist you in any way possible to live the
     higher life, which leads to true happiness and spiritual unfoldment.

     We send our best wishes for your spiritual progress.


     Astrology is the key to character and character is destiny. Therefore,
     it is evident that  a knowledge  of astrological  influence is  of the
     utmost importance.  By it, one may remodel his  character and  thereby
     gradually change his environment and his destiny.


     The influence of the stars upon human life is real, not imaginary.  It
     is  not  a  superstition  of  the  Middle  Ages  rejuvenated by  a few
     overzealous persons.   This statement  needs not  be taken  upon faith
     alone; it can easily be checked by the preliminary student.

                              NOT FORTUNE TELLING

     To The Rosicrucian Fellowship, astrology is a phase  of religion,  and
     not to be confused with fortune telling. We  consider the  calculation
     and reading  of horoscopes  for money  a prostitution  of this  Divine
     Science. We advise that people learn the fundamentals  of the  science
     so they can read  their own  horoscopes. This  can be  done to  better
     advantage by a person himself than by a professional who does not know
     the inner nature of the person  in question,  or how  he is  likely to
     react to planetary influences.
