Edgar Cayce’s readings mentioned the radiant golden-orange star Arcturus over 30 times and regarded it as the “stargate”—an entranceway to other parts of the universe or to other realms of consciousness:
5259-1: “And Arcturus! For the entity has gone out and returned purposefully.” ( http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:wr1CcYQeGrYJ:www.edgarcayce.org/are/blog.aspx%3Fid%3D4645+Arcturus+Edgar+Cayce+and+the+Cosmos+by+James+Mullaney&cd=1&hl=ro&ct=clnk&gl=ro)
strength in mental and spiritual elements toward developing of soul and of the
attributes toward the better forces in earth's spheres."
263-15 "18. (Q) From the information received from this source, I am from
Arcturian influences. What is this influence in my present experience?
(A) As just indicated, and is as a part of that. For Arcturus is that junction
between the spheres of activity as related to cosmic force, and is that about
which this particular environ or sphere of activity rotates, or is a relative
source of activity."
311-2 "As an entity passes on, as has been given, from this present - or THIS
solar system, THIS sun, THESE forces, it passes through the various spheres -
leading first into that central force, through which - known as Arcturus -
nearer the Pleiades, in this passage about the various spheres - on and ON -
through the EONS of time, as called - or space - which is ONE in the various
spheres of its activity.."
827-1 "In those experiences of the entity in its dwellings in the hills and the
plains of Persia, also in Egypt, the beauties and music of the spheres sang and
brought into the experience of the entity its studies of the light by day, the
joy of the voices of the night, and the star that led the entity - that source
from which and to which it may gain so much of its strength in the present;
Arcturus, the wonderful, the beautiful! As the bright and Glorius light from
same set afire, as it were, its meditations in the plains, so may the
illuminations do the same in the lives of those the entity contacts through its
gentleness and kindness and service."
2454-3 "Arcturus comes in this entity's chart, or as a central force from which
the entity came again into the earth-material sojourns. For, this is the way,
the door out of this system."
2823-1 "Not that the sun that is the center of this solar system is all there
is. For the entity has attained to that realm even of Arcturus, or that center
from which there may be the entrance into other realms of consciousness."
5259-1 "And Arcturus! For the entity has gone out and returned, purposefully."
5749-14 "(Q) The sixth problem concerns interplanetary and inter-system
dwelling, between earthly lives. It was given through this source that the
entity Edgar Cayce, after the experience as Uhjltd, went to the system of
Arcturus, and then returned to earth. Does this indicate a usual or an unusual
step in soul evolution?
(A) As indicated, or as has been indicated in other sources besides this as
respecting this very problem, - Arcturus is that which may be called the center
of this universe, through which individuals pass and at which period there comes
the choice of the individual as to whether it is to return to complete there -
that is, in this planetary system, our sun, the earth sun and its planetary
system - or to pass on to others. This was an unusual step, and yet a usual
5755-1 "And we find that the experience of the entity before that, as Uhjltd,
was from even without the sphere of thine own orb; for the entity came from
those centers about which thine own solar system moves - in Arcturus." (http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:O_TS6MXt4-0J:groups.yahoo.com/group/CayceCayce/message/8529%3Fthreaded%3D1%26var%3D1%26p%3D5+cayce+readings+2454-3&cd=10&hl=ro&ct=clnk&gl=ro)
