The Unknown Planets

Theosophists George Sutcliffe and Geoffrey Hodson made a unique investigation of our solar system in 1929.

Hodson saw streams of pranic-magnetic energy flowing out from the Sun's magnetic equator to 12 planets via their magnetic poles and then back from their magnetic equators to the Sun's magnetic poles. This is the "circulation of 'blood'" of our system, probably in the period of a sunspot cycle(a little over 11 years).

He "saw" two planets beyond Neptune(he did not see Pluto or the asteroids as sun-linked) at 18° to 20° Scorpio(the nearer one, MORYA) and at 15° Virgo(the farther one, LION).

He "saw" also two planets not visible to usual sight. The first one(VULCAN) revolves within the orbit of Mercury and radiates or reflects only deep infrared radiation. The other one is normally in the inner part of the belt of asteroids just beyond Mars and is "etheric" or plasmic. (from The Unknown Planets, page 5)

The book then goes on to explain a host of other hypothetical bodies seen or determined by mystics and astronomers alike. Below are the main bodies described or discussed. Tables will be included for some of them.

Vulcan: According to Sutcliffe, Vulcan has a mean period of 25.2883 days(Weston's work on it is erroneous), and is never more than 10° before or after the Sun in the zodiac.
