Astrology and esotericism have a long history together. The definitions of esoteric generally refer to a study by a small group of people, where the transfer of knowledge is often shrouded in ritual or mystery and the understanding comes over time. Alice Bailey felt esotericism was the science of the soul. In this category, we are using esoteric and its relation to astrology in its broader meaning that includes the many domains of Western esotericiam. This includes the astrology of Alice Bailey, but also magic, alchemy, Rosicruian and Masonic beliefs, and more.
