IS BELIEF IN OMENS A SUPERSTITION?
[The Theosophist, Vol. III, No. 10, July, 1882, p. 249]
[In reply to a correspondent’s questions about omens, H. P. B. wrote:]
It cannot be denied that there are correspondences, relationships, and mutual attractions and repulsions in Nature, the existence of which scientific research is constantly making more apparent. Nor can it be contradicted that, under this law, the theory of omens and portents has some basis of truth. But the credulity of the superstitious has carried the matter to absurd lengths. The subject is too vast to enter upon until we have exhausted the more important branches of Occultism.
